One Day at a Time – #HealingRain

Living One Day at a Time requires Faith

Are you weighed down by the cares of life?

I don’t know what heartbreaking situation you may be facing within your family. Your child may be diagnosed with autism. You may be dealing with a rebellious child. You may have someone you love fighting cancer. You may be in a difficult time in your marriage or going through a bitter divorce. You may be a single mom fighting to have enough time with your child.

No matter what you are going through, there is enough grace for today! So take it one day at a time. Listen to todays Healing Rain Broadcast. 

Living in Freedom One Day at a Time

Living life free from fear and worry means that we trust God for every breath we take.

Beginning our day remembering all that God has done in our lives will lift your spirit and your hopes. He is alive in us. Nothing can take His place. He is all we need. His love has set us free!

Take a moment, to worship, clap your hands and maybe even dance when you listen to “Alive” by Hillsong

Does that Song Make you Want to Dance?

There are times when we are going through tough times, that we need to just stomp our feet, clap our hands, and move to the beat. The enemy of our souls hates worship because it makes us look up and see how BIG OUR GOD IS and how small our problem is in comparison.

In the midst of the darkest night, HIS light shines through. If we begin to live so that His will can be done in and through us every single day, we will live a life filled with freedom and joy.

Anchored Peace in Times of Stress

My thoughts began to swirl around me as I paced the floor with a baby on my hip. I feel trapped…I have to get out of here…Where is he?…He is always late…

The accusations began to build momentum with the ticking of the clock. By the time my husband walked in the door, I jammed the baby in his arms and ran out. Oh, the joy of a walk! All by myself! No one pulling on me…crying…needing something.

He has no idea how this feels…I am going crazy…When do I have any time for me…

Listen to my short encouragement from Healing Rain Radio…

Have you ever felt trapped? …In your mind…

You may not have been in the situation where you had 4 children ages 6, 4, 2, and newborn, but you have probably felt trapped before.

When the disciples woke him up afraid for their lives, he awoke and changed the outer environment through the heaven-found peace that His life was tethered to.

“The disciples went and woke him up, shouting, “Master, Master, we’re going to drown!”

“When Jesus woke up, he rebuked the wind and the raging waves. Suddenly the storm stopped and all was calm. 25 Then he asked them, “Where is your faith?”

The disciples were terrified and amazed. “Who is this man?” they asked each other. “When he gives a command, even the wind and waves obey him!””
Luke 8:24-25 NLT

Anchored Peace requires Faith

After Jesus calmed the storm, he asked his disciples “Where is your faith?” He wanted to disciples to walk like He walked, so filled with faith that they could sleep through the storms of life and change the environment by the peace they found within.

Watch Your Words – Sue Detweiler #LifeGivingLinkup

Watch Your Words

Do you find yourself having trouble blurting things out of your mouth?

Here are a Few Tweets about Watching Your Words

Tend Your Garden

The way to watch our words, is to renew the thoughts of our minds. When we spend time meditating on God’s word, our thoughts line up with what God says. It is like tending a garden…

Plant a thought and reap a word;
plant a word and reap an action;
plant an action and reap a habit;
plant a habit and reap a character;
plant a character and reap a destiny.

(Bishop Beckwaith, 1885)

As we intentionally renew our minds with God’s Word, the words of our mouths reflect God’s Wisdom. It’s little by little that the garden of our heart will grow.. a thought, a word, an action, a habit all builds your character. Your character is the foundation of your destiny.

Water the Good Seeds of your Garden with God’s Word

When toxic words flow out of our mouths, often it’s because we are discouraged. The enemy is whispering lies to our minds and we have taken the time to listen. If you are feeling down or discouraged it’s probably not the time to become deeply introspective. Sometimes it is just determining what foul water source we have been watering our garden with and to shut off the flow of toxicity.

Rinse Daily with God’s Word

On a daily basis you and I need to be cleansed by God’s Word. Jesus is your bridegroom and this is what He will do for you:

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word… Ephesians 5:26 NIV

Jesus is the perfect bridegroom. He gave himself up for the bride of Christ. In order to make you and I holy He washes us with His water through His word.

I don’t know about you, but there are situations where I come away and feel like I have been slimed. I may not even know how it happened, but the garden of my heart is heavy and I feel discouraged. All of us at those moments are tempted to find an escape to just stop thinking about the situation. You might turn to food, books, movies, shopping… or whatever to just try to get away from the way you are feeling.

Next Time, Take a Shower

Have you ever noticed that your tendency to escape just lead you to vice. Those that are struggling with substance abuse are likely trying to medicate themselves from the pain that they feel. They are trying to escape. But any vice you turn to is going to cause your heart and soul to become toxic.

A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart. What you say flows from what is in your heart. Luke 6:45 NLT

So since you know escaping your situation doesn’t help, what if you try taking a shower. What do I mean? Well, simply put let God’s word rinse you off. His word will water the garden of your heart. Click here for a few practical ways to rinse yourself off with God’s Word.Get List of Healthy Habits

When I was a young mom with so many children (I am a mom of 6), I turned the times that I felt down into a game with my homeschooled children. I brought our an old tambourine and a box of streamers. We turned on the music loud and I shouted dance break! My daughters loved it, we would all dance around the house and before you knew it we were all laughing at each other. We had encouraged each other.

Who Can You Encourage Today

Encouragement is contagious. When you are encouraged, you can’t help but smile at others. Out of your mouth flows encouragement. You are affirming of others. You celebrate their giftedness. So today make it a point to encourage others.
