Thursday SHINE

Good Thursday morning, SHINE girls!

Here is today's reading:  Job 11

Hopefully, you're getting used to praying, claiming and seeking a resolute Victory over that thing

You know the one.  It always seems to trip us up, to snare us and make us feel more captive than ever.

Wait a second.  That's so not the end of the story.

Praise His name!

I love the promise of Victory.

Thank God, we aren't as stuck as we sometimes feel. 

We have hope in the Cross...the most amazing Victory of all.

This passage makes we want to do the Victory dance...be blessed!

2 Corinthians 2:14-16
14-16In the Messiah, in Christ, God leads us from place to place in one perpetual victory parade. Through us, He brings knowledge of Christ. Everywhere we go, people breathe in the exquisite fragrance. Because of Christ, we give off a sweet scent rising to God, which is recognized by those on the way of salvation—an aroma redolent with life.



Several years ago a friend of mine went to a Beth Moore simulcast.  At the end of the session, Beth asked the women to pair up and say these words to each other.

And guess what, she couldn't believe the result - the Holy Spirit showed up and by the end she was bawling - in complete awe of her Savior.

Let them resonate with you and if you would, please read to yourself while facing the mirror.  C'mon, don't blush.  You know her well.  Speak this truth to yourself!  There is amazing power in the spoken word.


My Dear Sister,

God has not overlooked you

He has not ignored you

He hears every petition

And intimately knows

the heart beneath it.


Give Him full access

To all of your longings.


Pray every single day

To become a person who delights in Him.

When it seems to disappear- -

Remember to check your JAW

Are you Jealous?

Are you Angry?

Are you Worried?

Roll it all on Jesus

He's strong enough to carry it

Big enough to handle it.

Trust God with all your heart

Now leave this place

And go into the world

being Victorious in your Lord 

and Savior, Jesus Christ.




Claiming our Victory! 

Who's with me?
