It’s January 8 and my first post for the new year.
I’ve been purposefully quiet on this blog over November and December because I’ve spent time in prayer for my nation, busy with two holidays and well … I promised you years ago when I started this blog that I’d only write as inspired by God. I’ve been pondering things in my heart and keeping them to myself while trying to grow up and not share whatever comes to mind.
The events in Washington, D.C. on January 6 upset me because I had hopes that the electoral votes would not be certified and that the 10-day audit requested by Sen. Ted Cruz would be granted. Call me naive but I’m being transparent. After the riots ruined that possibilility, I awoke Thursday, January 7 saddened and not sure what to pray. It appeared Trump lost.
I tried to absorb the days events of our President talking about a peaceful transition and news reports revealing the marauders identity, but I was not feeling my prayers were availing much. Like you, I prayed so diligently for SO MANY MONTHS!
What to do?
I awoke today to a fellow warrior sending me a 90-minute video that reinvigorated my faith. I made time over morning coffee to listen. I share it with you because it will get you back on track to believe that God IS NOT DONE with the destiny of America! https://fb.watch/2UtM9sQHpj/
Meanwhile, outside my window my blue ceramic birdbath is a mini ice rink, a cardinal shivers and our first major snowfall blankets the trees and grass in white. A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for northwest North Carolina and portions of SW Virginia.
This video communicates what the Spirit of God placed on my heart this morning.

So remember, fellow Christian and intercessor … we battle not against flesh and blood. We have to choose to keep our minds on things above. When you get weary, it’s normal. But don’t take a rest! Instead, ask God to refresh you. Be like King David and encourage yourself in the Lord (1 Samuel 30:6).
Now David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and his daughters. But David strengthened himself in the LORD his God.
I don’t know how David did it but I do these things: listen to trusted leaders in the Body who have heard what God is saying; worship the Lord because He never changes and is ALWAYS worthy of my adoration and be attentive to what my heart is telling me. Of course, feed myself more Word than world info!
I confess friends … yesterday I was DOWN. My soul was confused, my emotions were disappointed and I did not know what God was doing. My soul blocked my ability to hear so I needed the direction I found here
I pray along with Dutch Sheets and his “give Him 15” app daily and it makes such a difference in keeping my soul focused. It’s available as a video on YouTube and as an app for your phone where the points and prayer are written out.
So STAND IN FAITH brothers and sisters and keep standing on God’s Word (Ephesians 6:13).
Keep your mind on things above. Good things are on the way!
We walk BY FAITH and NOT by SIGHT! (2 Corinthains 5:7)
God is NOT LATE! He is never late. He has a good plan for America and we WILL see it!
Love in Him,
