Refusal to Give Up

My two girls and I have faced several mountains in our lifetime. The elements of these mountains consists of relocating, loss of employment due to medical crisis. This soon landed me on disability, drastically reducing our income. I found myself in a financial followed by unwanted debt. Eventually, the turn of events left my family displaced.

We were then homelessness, moving around from one hotel room to the next, using Priceline to get low price rates. This kept us from living on the street or in a shelter for almost a year.

The only thing that kept us from giving up was FAITH in God, knowing that he was with us every step of the way. “I kept telling my daughters, have an attitude of gratitude.” They were just hitting there tweens. Our lives must have seemed like the worst rollercoaster ride ever. I know this was emotionally draining, confusing and embarrassing to them.

There were times it seem the mountain didn’t move, but God allowed us to walk through the mountain to the other side. However, there were other times he carried us across. God’s Love is True.

The WORD of God was ignited in my spirit, knowing that GOD will never leave or forsake us, nor leave us a lone! We had the BLESSED assurance of provision every step of the way. HE is ALL! God continued to work things out in our favor. YES, HE CAN!

Learning to live again after recovering from a mini stroke and a Gran Mal Seizure I found the the rehabilitation was quite challenging. There is so many things we take for granted until we loss the natural God given ability. Learning to walk, talk read.and write again is nothing short of a MIRACLE, with the help of wonderful dedicated In Home Therapist and my daughters who pushed me beyond measure. GOD has a way of placing the right people in our lives who were sent to encourage and BLESS us even the more.

JESUS healing virtue continues to fall fresh upon us as we declare the word of the LORD, that by the stripes of JESUS that we are HEALED in JESUS precious NAME! It was GOD who strengthen my daughters to help care for me and not give up. Throwing in the towel was not optional. We trust and STAND on the WORD of GOD!

We have a deeper relationship because of the mountains we faced. It was all apart of the process. Since then I continue to walk in my healing, although the enemy attempts to afflicts with medical challenges we refuse to allow it to incapacitate our lives, but instead we choose to trust GOD, stay strengthen through prayer, praise and worship. Instead we walk in our healing in our own space. Giving, as we continue to declare, that we are lenders, not borrowers and Homeowners we shall be.

We know that GOD has a plan and purpose for the mountains we have faced. The test we have encountered are a testimony of HIS GLORY to encourage and bless others. What looked like a defeat in our lives, is a Message of Hope, Encouragement and Strength. Taking a quote from the disciple Paul,

“I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:12-13

The reality and the revelation of this passage continues to speak volumes giving greater understanding.

We are more than conquerors in CHRIST JESUS! GOD not only has the POWER to MOVE the mountain, but he will.take us through the mountain and but mounts us up on wings to fly OVER the mountain at high altitudes.


Father GOD we give you all the GLORY! There is none like YOU, oh LORD, our STRONG tower, a keeper, and FRIEND!

Thank YOU for loving and sustaining us, we we able to Stand strong in the LORD, we there were times we felt as though we would break. We stood in the POWER of HiS MIGHT! You are our dwelling place, our favor, ALL we need is YOU!

Give me JESUS!

We are so GRATEFUL and will continue to serve encourage and testify of your good works as we are INHISCARE.
