Today is a new day to start fresh!


When you think God isn’t showing up for you.


Everywhere I look, I’m starting to realize that God is all around us. If we look closely, we will see He is in the smallest of things. Such as taking a walk and seeing these fantastic flowers. Instead of seeing just beautiful flowers, I started seeing God. I thanked Him for making me smile, making me feel refreshed by the spring air, and just letting me know He’s all around me. As I walked and begged God to show up for me, He did. Start looking around you at the minor things, and you will see God all around you. I hope you have a blessed day!

A miracle – good people with kind hearts.


Good Monday morning!!! Have a wonderful day.

“You never know what someone is going through. A few nice words can help a person a lot more than you think. Sometimes miracles are just good people with kind hearts.”

Have a blessed day!
See God in the little things,
I see Him all over this picture.

Father, let me be an example of Jesus.


Father in Heaven, You are the great teacher. You know all and You teach others Your truths. Help me to grow and mature into a good teacher of Your truth. Instill wisdom in me so that as I age others benefit from knowing me. Help me to have character that is worthy of Your calling and reflects Your holiness. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Insanity – doing the same thing over and over again, expecting a different result. Walking though the first step.


No one gets to start in the middle – we’re all beginners in one area of our lives or another. But for most of us, we need a new beginning, a fresh start, a walking journey from chaos to wholeness that is accomplished one step at a time.

Our first step is a big one. We are finally ready to admit that we are powerless to control an addiction or a behavior. The harder we try, the more unmanageable it becomes. Our lives have descended into chaos. When we take that first big step – giving up control – we step away from denial and acknowledge our own needs.

There is hope in that first step, for we can’t be helped until we admit that we need help. We are trying to be God in our own lives, and really, we aren’t up to the task. We are powerless to control much of anything by our own power. If we do this, we find freedom from ourselves.

Father God, today I take that fi4rst important step toward healing and wholeness. I admit to you that I am powerless over the strongholds that have taken over my life. I desperately need your help. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Struggling is an opportunity, to draw closer to Him.


Happy Friday sweet friends! Today, be the best you, you can be. If your down today or struggling with something going on in your life, you do have Hope! Hope is an amazing thing, without it where would we all be. He wants us to rejoice even in our struggles. He wants us to love Him, trust Him, and get so close to Him, and sometimes struggling is the way that happens. So, use this opportunity to draw closer to Him. Always reach out to someone when you need to talk, don’t suffer alone. That is what my ministry Hope Knows Your Name is all about. Reach out to us anytime we are doing life together!

Hope, in the midst of the Coronavirus Pandemic.


Hey sweet friends, ever since this coronavirus pandemic has happened, all I have heard is so many people looking for hope. So, here is a snippet out of the second book I am writing—the only place you will ever find hope is in Him. I am praying for all my blogging friends that you to will find some comfort here today. Please feel free to share with others, Christie.
 
 
H – in hope stands for a Higher power. Jesus desires a hands-on day to day moment by moment, intimacy with us.
Romans 11:36 Living Bible (TLB)
36 For everything comes from God alone. Everything lives by his power, and everything is for his glory. To him be glory evermore.
He can do what we are not able to do on our own. For us to change, we need a smidgen of faith.
Matthew 17:20 New Living Translation (NLT)
20 “You don’t have enough faith,” Jesus told them. “I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible. We would have change that would be able to move mountains of our hurts. We can find the courage to take hold of Christ’s hand so that we can face the present with confidence and the future with realistic expectancy.
 
O – in hope, stands for openness to change. Sometimes we’re afraid to change even if our past was painful. We may resist change because of our fear of the unknown. Or, in our despair, we may think we don’t deserve anything better than what we are currently experiencing. Hope opens the doors that despair has slammed shut. Hope discovers what can be done instead of grumbling about what can’t. Throughout our lives, we will continue to encounter hurts and trials that we are powerless by ourselves to change. But with God’s help, we can be open enough to allow those right circumstances to change us, making us better, not bitter. Our attitudes must always be changing for the better, and hope enables us to do just that.
Ephesians 4:22-23 New Living Translation (NLT)
22 Throw off your old sinful nature and your former way of life, which is corrupted by lust and deception. 23 Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes.
Psalm 25:5New Living Translation (NLT)
5 Lead me to your truth and teach me, for you are the God who saves me. All-day long, I put my hope in you.
 
P – In hope, which stands for the power to change. We are not able to change ourselves, but God’s power can change us and our situation. The ability to change comes from God’s grace. Hope draws its power from a deep trust in God. Once we tap into that power, right actions and Christ-like actions will follow naturally.
Hebrews 11:6 New Living Translation (NLT)
6 And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him. Without faith, it is impossible to please God.
 
E – Expectation to change. Don’t quit before your miracle happens. With God’s help, the changes we have longed for are just steps away. With God’s help, the changes we have wanted are only a few steps away. It is essential to keep the following in the forefront of our minds as we proceed. Life without Christ is a hopeless end, but with him, it’s an endless hope.
