June is Black Music Month! To celebrate, each of our EmpowerMoments will be based on Black music for the entire month. This includes Black songwriters, producers or performers. Stay tuned as we use various genres of Black music to tell our stories and exemplify the beauty of God’s love! Happy Black Music Month! Dance as if no one is watching!
God has been impressing on my heart to really seek Him more, to make our relationship priority. I have to be honest; I have let some other things take precedent in my life. I’ve been feeling disconnected lately from His presence. This happens when I overload my schedule and feel guilty when things begin to fall apart.
The Lord says in Isaiah 1:19-20, “If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the best from the land; but if you resist and rebel you will be devoured by the sword.” (NIV)
In order for us to have the “best” of the land, i.e. blessings, we must be obedient. You cannot expect God to bless what He has specifically told you to let go. Today is the right time to get right with Your Father.
His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who call us by his own glory and goodness. (II Peter 1:3 NIV)
God will give you the power to overcome each and every obstacle that would hinder a meaningful relationship between you and Him if you allow Him to have complete and unrestricted access to your life.
Please allow the song below to bless your spirit. Let each word that speaks of His mercy and love into your heart. Once you understand the love of the Father, you will desire to not break His heart.
I am so thankful for Your mercy and for Your endless pursuit of my affection and attention. Forgive me for not making our relationship priority. Help me to not ignore the promptings of the Holy Spirit. Keep a hedge of protection around me so I may have the strength to withstand temptations and trials. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!
Ladies, I EMPOWER you to allow God’s love and mercy to transform your life. Do not allow anything to place a barrier between His Love and blessings for your life.
