Our Aspirations . . .


Good Morning Ladies! As we devote our time with our Heavenly Father this week I want to encourage you to seek Him first in all that you have set before you. You know, sometimes our aspirations can be self made causing us to stress and become easily frustrated. It is in seeking Him that we…

What is Normal?


“When we get to a place where His love consumes us, His light guides us, His truth speaks from us . . . authority and unity will become our normalcy.” ~ Jennifer Goodson © 2014 ~ A small nugget of wisdom for the week ~ Keep smilin’ ~ jenn All Brake 5 Blogs and written…

When you’ve had enough . . . .


“When you’ve had enough . . . you’ll know.  How . . . because your desire for inner healing will be stronger than your desire (craving) for that addictive sin, that oh so familiar sin, that one that keeps knocking on your mind’s doorstep, the one that is holding you in bondage.  And that my…

Bravery comes at a cost . . .


What’s holding you back from facing your fears? What keeps you from experiencing true freedom? Are you tired of living in a fog, a bubble of unreality when it comes to God’s presence? Are you afraid of facing the truth of who God has called you to be? Where is your courage your Faith? Where…

Gift of Love


“A gift should not be given with stipulations. Otherwise, it truly has not been given but bondage has been exchanged for trust. Learn to freely give and to freely receive – such love is unconditional.” ~ Jennifer Goodson 2008-2014 © Copyright.

The War on Family . . .


A war rages from centuries past, against the value of marriage and family.  This war is in our midst every day, right in front of our eyes . . . In a garden, inhabited by one-man one woman, it began. When the enemy of our souls turned husband and wife against one another with his…

Addictions ~ LIVE TODAY ~ 2013 ~ Day 34/365, Week 5/52


Raise the Standard It is amazing to see how far we have come from the righteousness and holiness of God.

Take the Steps ~ LIVE TODAY ~ 2013 ~ Day 29/365, Week 5/52


Steps towards Victorious Living . . . “Victorious Living is proven when one can permeate, (to diffuse through or penetrate something), a place with the peace of God.  Every territory that their feet tread the aroma of God’s Peace and Good News lingers in the atmosphere.”   ~ Jennifer Goodson How do you get there…

Identity ~ LIVE TODAY ~ 2013 ~ Day 23/365, Week 4/52


Who Are You? This is the start of knowing who we are, loving and accepting ourselves, and knowing that even if all is stripped away that we are still valuable to Him and to others. As talked about earlier, finding who we are, accepting who we are – we need to be reminded that God…

Conflict ~ LIVE TODAY ~ 2013 ~ Day 15/365, Week 2/52


Conflict?  Who are you continually fighting with? Yesterday, we talked about conflict and how it is good for us whether we are up for it or not.  Whether we have the strength or not, God will use conflict in our lives to push us towards a growth spurt.  He will use conflict to bring out…

Power ~ LIVE TODAY ~ 2013 ~ Day 14/365, Week 2/52


Who has power over you? If you allow someone to control you through your past, secrets, offenses, anger, resentment, un-forgiveness, etc., you have given them the power over you and your purpose for your life. These are types of people who will drain you, suck the life out of you, disrespect your boundaries and smile…

Grace ~ LIVE TODAY ~ 2013 ~ Day 9/365, Week 2/52
