I love how God works

I love you God, I love how you work all things out for those who love you.

God I love that I do have peace and that you are filling me with peace.

Thank you that you are guiding me, I trust you.

Thank you for fighting for me, I don’t have to fight.

I don’t have to figure it out, thank you for your Holy Spirit.

Thank you that like you spoke through my friend: I am protected from the enemy. Nothing can harm me. The battle is not ours to fight, but yours and you have already won. Burn that in my heart. In JESUS name, AMEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I understand why you gave me this scripture this morning!

1 Samuel 17:45 David said to the Philistine, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, BUT I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.

God I boldly face any new challenge with you right here with me. Nothing is impossible with you. I can do ALL things through You, Christ who IS my STRENGTH.

Prayer for marriages, family & thanks

God I pray right now for broken marriages and relationships around the world. I lift up those marriages and relationships to you, intervene oh Lord. I pray people would hear your voice and listen. I have learned to listen to your voice and that you can do anything in my own brokenness. I’m learning that your grace is sufficient and that your power is made perfect in weakness. It was said to me tonight that in the middle of such pain, how amazing it is to experience such holy joy and I know that holy joy is from you. Thank you that you care that much, to always be there through it all, fighting for me. I pray for Husband’s and Wives, that their hearts would be open to let you come in and transform them, that they would let their guards down, move out of the way, and let your Holy Spirit work. I pray Husband and Wives would accept Jesus into their hearts. I pray they would stop chasing after this world because it will not fulfill them like the love of your son, Jesus Christ. Thank you for the Holy Spirit and how it moves us closer to you. Thank you that you hear our every cry. You are such a big God! If you can save a sinner like me, transform me daily, you can change anyone! You are the one and only God, the beginning and the end. You are the light of my life. I thank you for my marriage, I thank you for the ups and downs of my marriage and how, now your hand is in my marriage. I ask you to heal my family. Lord let me not move without you. Father, thank you for your protection, provision, guidance, love, forgiveness, and grace. I know that through my marriage I have come to know you, accept you, and walk with you daily. Thank you for using my marriage, my Husband, and our mistakes to bring me into a personal relationship with you. Thank you Jesus that you heal and break every chain. You help me when I stumble, forgive me when I fall, help me stay on coarse. I pray for my Husband too, give him your courage and strength to keep fighting the good fight. No weapon formed against my marriage shall prosper, in Jesus name. Thank you for your living word, it saves me every single time, it heals me, it is just awesome. I pray for families, that they would just open up your word and that you would perform miracles. Thank you that you do heal and perform miracles! Jesus thank you for your life. Thank you that you didn’t think twice about forgiving me. Help me to forgive that very same way. Thank you that I am the righteousness of Christ because you say I am. Thank you that I and we are so boldy broken. I love you God and trust you. In Jesus name, I pray all of this, amen.

Who are you going to trust?

God has spoken to me this morning, to look to Him for approval, not this world or the people in it. When I look to anyone other than God for approval, I will always be let down in one way or another, but God, he doesn’t operate like that with me. He doesn’t let me down. He may let me go through some very uncomfortable situations and he gives me choices to make through those times. I can lean on Him for His understanding, trusting Him or I can lean on my own understanding or this world.

He’s teaching me this week about truth and love. He’s teaching me to be set apart, to respond differently. I have to be honest it isn’t easy, at times my flesh wants to fight against Him, but He gives me his strength to say NO to the ugly like he never has before. He has given me the boldness and confidence to confront some people in my life that are only hindering and not helping the very thing God is doing in my marriage and life. He reminded me He will fight for me, I only need to be still. He is working on my behalf.  All I have to do is trust Him and hold Him to His word.

His Son set the example I am to follow. Jesus knew all He was going to go through, and he still chose to trust God. He trusted God even while He’s hanging, crucified on the cross, asking God to forgive us. Wow! I can’t even begin to imagine the pain He felt, yet He wasn’t even focused on the pain, He was focused on his trust in God, His plan, US, and he had compassion.

Luke 23:34 Jesus said “Father forgive them, they do not know what they are doing.

When the world says no you shouldn’t forgive, hold on to that, make them earn your forgiveness, prove yourself, Jesus reminds me daily, you have nothing to prove, I am the proof, let that go my child, I’ve got this, I died on the cross for that. Forgive like I have forgiven you.

People are going to let you down, people are not going to understand, but God will never let you down and He understands all too well what you are going through. He gave His Son up for you to be forgiven and reconciled to Him. Do you hear those precious words of redemption?

Psalm 103:9-12 He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor his anger forever; he does not treat us as our sins deserve; or repay us according to our iniquities. For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so is his love for those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.

No matter what you’ve done, no matter what you or they think, no matter how they make you feel, no matter how you feel about yourself, there is one thing that will not change…who God is, what He has done for you and how much He loves you.

I choose to trust His promises. I choose to trust God. I choose Jesus.

Hello world!

The Enemy has tried everything he can to distract me from starting this blog, because he knows God is about to do something AMAZING! Thank God, with His strength and encouragement from His word and people, I have persevered and took a leap of faith! So, I feel like God has been speaking to me (through the unveiledwife.com) for a while to start a blog to share my journey in life, where my life was before I was completely broken, and more importantly where he has brought me and is bringing me personally as an individual in Him and then as a Wife, with the end result of lifting up other wives and women, sending them encouragement and hope! I have to admit I’ve been afraid and have put this whole blogging on hold because of fear and anxiety. Well yesterday I prayed a bold prayer and let’s just say God used a friend of mine to give me that last and final push. So I listened, I obeyed, I lost control, I surrendered, Lord have your way. The song by Matthew West, Do Something popped in my head and I said you know what, it’s time, time that I did something! Later on, my Husband and I just looked at each other, as we were leaving our marriage counseling session, Matthew West, Do Something comes on 106.9 The Light. Coincidence? I think more like confirmation. So now back to how I took this leap of faith, I asked God what about the name of this blog you are wanting me to do? Two words popped into my mind: boldly & broken. Then the Holy Spirit brought to me a third word, together, summing up boldybrokentogether. Here are some different definitions/adjectives for these three words:
Boldly: showing or requiring courage.
adjectives-courageous, confident, fearless, ready to take risks.
Broken: reduced to fragments, changed direction abruptly, to smash, split, to put an end, to overcome, an opening made by breaking, to lose control.
Together: into or in union, without intermission or interruption, continuously, without interruption…operating as we, not as individuals.
 boldly. broken. together. 
And guess what that explains my marriage. I’ve learned with God truly at the center and number one in my life, I can love my Husband. I can forgive, I can move forward and with God for me who could be against me? I have grown to love my Husband unconditionally, to extend the same grace to him, that my Father has extended to me. I feel complete and total peace about this blog and know I’m obeying my Father.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled & do not be afraid. John 14:27
I hope whoever you are, wherever you are, whatever you are doing, you would stop to listen to the words of this song and let them soak deep down into your heart and soul, because with God ANYTHING is possible and He wants your marriage to be restored.
