He Alone, Can and Will Strengthen and Empower You

by | Mar 3, 2018

As you can see, we have a new look!  I am sorry if you received emails in the night, apparently some went out while the new site was being worked on.  Please let me know if you have any struggles navigating the new site!



Isaiah 41:10
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Do you need strength today? Are you trying to find a way to either deal with something from your past or something new that you are having to face today? True strength comes from God, you aren’t going to find it in some hashtag “me too” or by linking arms with other people who want to focus on anything and everything negative. Choose strength, choose hope, and choose the only one who can give you all of that ~ Jesus Christ!

You don’t have to be defined by something that has happened to you in your past. We all have a past, but more importantly we have a future. Which one will you choose to focus on. There’s a reason we don’t drive our cars in reverse all the time ~ it is much more difficult to drive while you are trying to look behind you instead of going forward, looking ahead and life is like that as well. Don’t be defined by your past, choose to allow God to use anything from your past to be the best you can be for your future, but you must focus on what lies ahead in order for Him to do that. If you have been abused, know that God wants to strengthen you and hold you up! God’s wrath will be on those who abuse, He doesn’t look the other way, but He wants to strengthen you and lift you up out of that state of being a victim and fulfill all that He created you to be ~ a strong, godly, warrior Princess who knows she is loved by the God of all creation! You are His creation and He cares about anything someone else may do to harm you! You are precious in His eyes! He loves you and He wants to give you the strength you need! He doesn’t want you to live like a victim! He wants you to live like the victor! All the rallies and hashtags in the world will not empower you! It is God who can and will empower you, don’t look for your strength anywhere else!

I would like to encourage you today: don’t focus on the past, if you need counseling or a life coach to walk you through something from your past, do it so you can move forward. Stuffing abuse, will not make it go away, face it and move forward and don’t allow it to define you! Only God can define you because He is the one who created you! He wants you to be all He created you to be and He wants to give you the strength to fulfill that! Trust Him! Give Him all of your hurts and struggles and allow Him to mold you into His beautiful creation. Allow Him to make you better not bitter. The world wants you to believe that you are a victim and they want you to focus on spending your time doing anything other than focusing on who you are in Christ! Stand up, hold your head high knowing that you are a Princess to the King of kings and the Lord of lords and the God of all creation loves you more than words can say! You will never have God’s best if you are always focused on your past! Give it all to Him today!

    I have been enjoying reading the daily chocolate and god. Yesterday, Saturday, March 2,
    I received 20 of these right in a row. Couldn’t understand them. Looks like I probably will have to unsubscribe to all of these where I was just getting the daily readings of chocolate & god, daily, just one of these. Right now I have 20

    Can you let me know what happened?
    Thank you,

      Hey Maryann, I am so sorry about the “multiple” emails that went out in the night, but it shouldn’t happen again! Bill was changing our website and he didn’t realize that it was emailing everyone over and over, crazy things! So sorry! Please don’t feel as though you need to unsubscribe, you should only receive 1 a day from here on out! Thank you so much!
      God Bless,
      Janet Scott

    I am not receiving daily devotions in my email. I am getting it on the app and would prefer email.
    Thanks you.
