Life! How does one describe the growing of life within them? The feeling of excitement, the anxious awaiting of a beautiful creation, and knowing it is a complete miracle to have it all forming within you. This is the best way to describe what is happening with me currently. There are no words to describe the life growing in me. I can hear the heartbeat and feel an outstretched hand. Every now and then a bit of nausea, followed with a movement to make me realize how alive this life truly is.

I am in a state of awe and wonder knowing how God meticulously has been forming it all into being just for me to realize how deep His love for me goes. His love is never-ending, unchanging, unconditional, and is always, always there. As life forms, I find myself swept away by Love so deep that I want to spend every moment in His presence. I would give up everything just for that to happen.

I feel the butterflies flutter in my stomach and it makes me want to dance. His arms wrap around me as I get lost looking into His eyes. His smile warms me from the inside out as my soul burns to give Him glory in all things. How amazing that He would plant in me such life and birth a gift unlike any other!

With this beautiful, precious life we will go to the nations. With my husband by my side, through each labor pain, we will be drenched in the sweat that brings forth life. Every pain, every contraction, and no matter how long the transition, it is worth it all for this life to be born. Through blood and rings of fire we will step into our destiny with God cutting through bars of iron just so that all things impossible become possible.

Thank you God for life and how you have given new wings to fly in this destiny that you are bringing forth!

Note: I am not physically pregnant. This is describing a spiritual pregnancy that God is bringing me through.

Betrayed. Stolen from and raped of innocence. Darkness. Fear. Distrust. Lack of courage. Old self, you once were my constant reality. Now dead, I revel in the victory that Christ has given me! I stand in freedom and a joy that gives my heart wings and lifts my voice out from the depths. For so many years, I was convinced that the ravages of the enemy parading what he had stolen from me would forever dim my life. With a sneer he would flaunt it in every direction that I would look.

With Christ beside me, I took back my voice Sunday. Goodbye old fear. Goodbye old self that lacked the courage to do so long ago. As I stood on stage, before the throne of God, my greatest desire was only to please and glorify Him as I went forth following His instructions for me to take back my voice that was stolen from me. The enemy lay defeated and slain, with no power because of Christ and His healing power and love!

It is difficult to put into words this transformation that has taken place in me that flooded my soul on Sunday. I am in awe at the hand of God so deep within me! It felt as if my heart and soul opened up wider and deeper as I took back ground and sang in the power of the Holy Spirit. For the first time in years, when I sang, my heart finally felt like it was flying, just as it did when I was younger. All I can do is cry in thankfulness. And my tears, along with my hair, I will use to wipe the feet of Jesus. My greatest desire is to love Him with my whole heart.

Now more than ever, I know that wherever I go I must keep looking into the eyes of Jesus. I must not look to the right or the left. He is my strength. He is all I need. And His power is greater than any other. What victory does Jesus want you to have this year, this month, today? Go for it. Unlike the enemy, there is so much more that God wants to give you.

Our Last Great Hope: Awakening the Great Commission, Ronnie Floyd

A book review to share with you all. Read, enjoy and let me know what you think of the book once you read it.

Ronnie Floyd uses his passion and zeal to write Our Last Great Hope in such a way as to bring a beacon of light to the mission of all followers of Christ. By using personal examples, much like the apostle Paul did in his own writing, Floyd is able to convey the importance of the great commission. He explains why the church needs to get out of their seats and fulfill this call that is from Jesus. As simple as this may sound, it is evident that a large majority of believers lack the zeal to save the lost from going to hell. Floyd touches on this sad truth and is able to communicate the urgency to fulfill the great commission.

I encourage anyone to read Our Last Great Hope. Whether you have the same zeal or whether you need to be jolted with truth to spark a passion for the lost, this book will challenge you to rethink how you live your life in relation to our mission as followers of Jesus. Floyd’s passion should be one that we all have in common with each other and this book will help spark that in you if it has died down a little through the years.

I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com <http://BookSneeze®.com> book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
