Anxious on this big day

As I wake this morning, I am reminded just how big this day is for me. I could be getting news that will be life changing. I have been praying for things to go my way. I have been praying for favor. I have been praying for peace. At times, I find myself (for a split second) thinking of the worst case scenario. I do my best to “change the channel” but the seed of doubt has already been planted. This morning I find this scripture verse on my email. It is one that I needed to read today. Thank you lord, I leave all to you. I thank you for being the author of all. In Jesus name amen. PJSLB

When the Holy Spirit uses WE ARE MESSENGERS to lift you up (letter from April)

During the WE ARE MESSENGERS concert in Macon, GA a beautiful thing took place. In between sets something caught the eye of Darren Mulligan, the lead singer of We are Messengers. Darren walked over (climbing over seats people were sitting) to hug and pray for a young lady. There was a hush on the crowd and without knowing the details, I started praying for her as well. Minutes later, Darren got on stage and continued singing as if nothing happened.

On the way home, my daughter and I were talking about that moment and were in awe on how the Holy Spirit was in that concert. What was said by Darren to that young lady was to forever be a mystery.

That was until I received a comment on my post from the concert. Turns out the lady’s name is April and this is her story.

I will 150% agree with You! I was at this concert. As a matter of fact he came off stage and prayed for me! He told me I didn’t always have to be strong, that I could let go, that is was in the Lord’s hands! What he didn’t know was I had just lost my dad the previous week. The tickets were given to me just the day before by my office manager because she had something come up. GOD knew I needed to be there! Darren spoke to me with the sweetest Irish accent, and I felt as if Jesus had his arms wrapped around me! This experience was more than you will ever get from church! And I’m proud to have had my daughter and dear friend experience this with me. Later the next day I went Darren a message on Facebook asking why of all the people at this event, Why Me? He said the Holy Spirit pointed me out to him. I will NEVER forget this moment! Watching your video still bring me chills! Cant wait for you to post more!

I have to say this was one of the most awesome thing I have ever witness. I pray April that the moments with Darren gave you the peace and comfort that can only come from Christ. In Jesus Name. Amen. PJSLB

Christian struggling with thoughts

ISB asks the following:

Good morning. Distractions and thoughts are trying to pull me away from my goals. How would you approach?

Thanks for the question. For me it depends where the distractions are coming from. If it’s outside influence like movies music tv people etc. I start by removing myself from that. If it’s a supernatural attack I look at it this way. You are close to a breakthrough and the devil is throwing everything he has at the last min. Hold on as tight as you can. Stay in your bible, music, anything to get thru this storm. Your almost there!

If you have a question or just need someone to bounce ideas off, we are here! Have a great weekend everyone. PJSLB
