40 Day Sugar Fast…Day 4

DAY 4 — Thursday, January 9, 2020

2020 SUGAR-FAST PLAYLIST

Every time we fast and pray as a community we make a playlist of our favorite worship songs. These become our battle hymns! Like yesterday’s horn-blowing shouts of faith.

Today’s message about King Jehoshaphat and the way God rerouted his enemies as the worship leaders fasted and sang songs together… there’s nothing I’d rather do with you today than make a play-list of songs to carry us through all 40 days (and beyond.)

Simply link us to a youtube video in the comment thread below.

There’s always someone who throws a couple of funny songs into the mix. (“Sugar… oh honey honey…”) But for the most part these are faith-inspired and faith-inspiring songs that increase our courage as we stand back and see the deliverance of the Lord!

I’ll start things off with my recent favorite:

I’ll Raise a Hallelujah by Bethel

I LOVE THESE LYRICS:

I raise a hallelujah, in the presence of my enemies

I raise a hallelujah, louder than the unbelief

I raise a hallelujah, my weapon is a melody

I raise a hallelujah, heaven comes to fight for me

OK, you’re turn! Add your favorite battle-hymns to the comment thread below!

I Am They

So far, so good. No real bad side effects going on. What I’m finding the hardest is just wanting to grab that handful of something to snack on while reading/writing……hopefully as I continue those feelings will abate.

In the meantime, a new hair color and some chilly vitamin C is just what the dr. Ordered for today 😊

40 Day Sugar Fast

Advent…Week 1…HOPE

Advent word of the week is Hope 🙏

The lighthouse has always been a symbol of hope to this gal. 💛

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.” Romans15:13

Why is there hope? Because Jesus was born. O holy night. What a thrill. God is at work.  

Loveeeeeee this mans voice ❤️🙏

30 Days Of Gratitude…Day 21

Day 21 : His light guides me and helps my inner light to shine on through these cracks of mine ☀️☀️☀️☀️💛💛💛💛💛🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏✝️✝️✝️✝️✝️

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. (John 1:5)

In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. (Matthew 5:16)

Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD has risen upon you. (Isaiah 60:1)

30 Days Of Gratitude..Day 6

Day 6 My Faith…the only way to navigate

And Jesus said to him, “‘If you can’! All things are possible for one who believes.”(Mark 9:23)

Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory, obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls. (1Peter1:8-9)

“[To have Faith in Christ] means, of course, trying to do all that He says. There would be no sense in saying you trusted a person if you would not take his advice. Thus if you have really handed yourself over to Him, it must follow that you are trying to obey Him. But trying in a new way, a less worried way. Not doing these things in order to be saved, but because He has begun to save you already. Not hoping to get to Heaven as a reward for your actions, but inevitably wanting to act in a certain way because a first faint gleam of Heaven is already inside you.” ~C.S. Lewis~
