I love reading the beautiful message you bring forth using God's word. The truth is; today we all need to "Declare It". We need to declare our new relationship with the Lord, declare ourselves free of this disease, and declare our lives'!
"Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth." John 17:17
In Christ Love,
Good morning and happy Friday!
Hope this message today can lift you up.
Mistakes, regrets, missed opportunities or blown chances, all of us at some time in our lives have been there. Whatever the reason, when things don’t go our way, it’s tempting to think...Too bad for me, I’ll never have that chance again. I’ve missed my season. The good news is that God always has another season—A “Kairos” season—an appointed time.
I speak over you that for every opportunity you’ve missed, every chance you’ve blown, God can restore and bring bigger and better things across your path in THIS SEASON of your life! You may have been through heartache and pain. You may have had disappointments and unfairness in your life. But the pain of your past is nothing compared to the joy of your future! Don’t settle for less than God’s best.
Today Declare it…
God has been preparing me. This is my season, my Kairos Moment. This thing will not defeat me. I may have lost some years, but God will restore those years! God will bring me out better than I was before! He said in Joel 2, that He will restore the years that have been stolen from me. Thank you Lord for restoration! Only my great God can restore years! ( "And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten….") I may may not be able to go back but God can make the rest of my life so rewarding and so fulfilling that it makes up for lost opportunities in my past! God has new opportunities in front of me. God will bless me with opportunities I missed because I was in the wrong place, wrong time, kicked to the back of the line! Even when I’ve failed God is so good. He’s so full of mercy and His grace is so powerful that He will give me another chance. He wants the rest of my life to be better than the first part! Thank you Lord!”
“For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning.”??Psalms? ?30:5? ?
Have a safe and happy weekend
Good morning my friends Thursday’s thought of the day from Pastor Scotty
A reminder today...You will reap in due season. Strong people cry sometimes, fall sometimes, and feel like giving up sometimes...but what makes them strong is that they keep on going. Your pain and struggles are only temporary. Hold on to the hope that God provides and know that you can get through anything with Him. Don't give up on what He has called you to do. The end result is worth the effort.
Whatever the enemy meant for bad, God is turning around for your good. You have not missed your season and time. God is just getting started! What He starts in your life, He will complete! He has the final say! Extraordinary power is released as you see God’s intended outcome ahead of time using the eye of faith, and declare, "It’s possible, with my God it is possible!"
So allow yourself to look forward, forgetting failures, hurts, and limiting mindsets of your past and embrace all that God is doing in this hour and in this season. He is bringing you out of your wilderness season and guiding you to the beginning of reaping your harvest! I speak strength, hope, courage and victory to you today. He is faithful and you will make it through!
“Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ;”?? Philippians? ?1:6? ?
God bless n hope you have a great day
Good morning and happy Monday I want to start you off to say I hope you have a blessed week ! May God continue to use those as a vessel to help see us all restoring our health. Trust that God will never close the door of those that are in need . He will always be by our side guiding us each and every step of this healing process.
I’m leaving you a great message from my Pastor Bro Scotty and thought of the day and you’re always in my heart my thoughts and prayers God bless !
All my love
I am praying for you that God will take what the enemy meant for bad and turn it for your good! He is your Restorer...Redeemer...Rebuilder and Rewarder. I declare victory in the areas the enemy has tried to wreck your life. Let God arise and your enemies be scattered! You have sown in tears,now you are about to reap in joy, blessings and favor!
The Lord bless you indeed; Enlarge your borders, expand your impact beyond your past limitations, bless you and make you a blessiing in Jesus’ Name! 1 Chron.4:10
I’m praying in faith today that you are coming into increase in every area of your lives; that every investment and seed you have sewn will produce a harvest that is supernatural and ongoing and called INCREASE! I’m praying that your lives will be marked by the very presence of Him who causes all things to work together for your good and His glory. I'm praying that your bodies are healed and your youth is renewed.
Lord, I pray today You would release abundant blessings for Your children. May this be a season where we say “You did this, God...Wow! Thank You!” I’m praying that great things are coming your way and that God is working to fulfill and give you the desires of your heart for you and your family! I declare it over you in Jesus name!
“Ah, Lord God...you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.” Jeremiah 32:17
I'm glad that the, 'Lesson from the lobster,' isn't that if anyone gets in your way you pinch them!! :-)
Yes Peter, even the title..' Lessons from a Lobster, ' had me smiling immediately! :-).
I really like the idea of taking ourselves to a quiet place to shed the stress that is damaging to our bodies and then when we are able we go into the world again after leaving this stress behind.
I also like the thought of the lobster having this big hard, tough shell but as you say he is really soft and vulnerable inside. So, he's not so different from many of us who have morgellons who in order to survive in the world try and have a strong exterior, even when we are extremely and utterly vulnerable inside. Though I wish we could just shed our outer skin like the lobster and get new skin just like that. Ha ha.
In saying that this illness is coming from the inside out so that wouldn't work! But Thanks for that insight into the world of the lobster and yes, we can learn from him can't we :-)
Managing Stress...Lessons from the Lobster
A lobster is a creature that is very soft and vulnerable inside. But on the outside it has a very hard and protective shell. The problem is, when a lobster grows, this hard outer shell pushes against it's insides and causes a great deal of stress. So what does the lobster do? It goes under a rock in a very quiet place and sheds this outer shell. Then it remains still and patient while a new outer shell grows. Then, it comes out and goes about it's business as a new and stress free creature again.
Time and time again, it will go to the safety and quiet under the rock each time it needs to "shed the stress" that comes from growing. Therein lies the great lesson for us. When we are under stress, we must take action. Then, like the lobster, we must look for the safety in knowing that we grow by shedding our stress. Then we come back to life renewed and ready to carry on. Hope this finds you smiling.
Many times we think our cross is heavier than others to carry. But the fact is; we must carry our own cross. We learn the truth by taking up our own cross and pressing forward. Thank you for using the "Thought of the Day" to bring forth God's word which is the truth.
“I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:14
In Christ Love,
Think we all have something in common where we’ve all suffered from these horrific toxic diseases and want to help others get well with the help n guidance from God. Rather it be from His word, knowledge, love, support and understanding it’s all a form of Gods work. The thought of today’s word couldn’t have been a better example of my point. All good work comes from God.
I bless your day my friends and family.
Love in Christ who strengthens me
Monday’s thought of the day from Bro Scotty
Probably everyone has shared a problem or situation with someone and gotten the response...”Well if you think your situation is bad just listen to this!”
I understand there is always going to be someone who has more severe and serious problems in their life. And yes, there will always be those who would trade places with us compared to what they are facing. And yes, things could always be worse and there is always something we can be thankful for. I get it. But even if someone else has worse problems than I do and understanding this can help my perspective, I still have to deal with the problems I’m facing. I’m here and it’s my problem. Someone else having worse problems doesn’t change the fact that I still have to deal with mine. And making me feel guilty that someone else has it worse doesn’t help me solve mine.
We can begin to feel that because there is always someone else worse off, God doesn’t have the time or resources to be bothered with us. But while what we’re going through may not seem that big to others, God cares. He doesn’t have to deprive someone else to help us! Our issues and battles matter to Him, no matter how trivial they may seem to someone else. When you call on Him He will never tell you that don’t matter and He doesn’t care. Listen to this verse.
“Casting ALL your care upon him; for HE CARES for you.” 1 Peter? ?5:7? ?
All your care, every bit of it! Never give in to the lie that you don’t matter and God doesn’t care. He loves you and CARES ABOUT YOU! You are not alone...ever! God is with you ALWAYS, no matter what, no matter who, no matter when, no matter why, no matter how, no matter where!
As you reach out to Him, He will hear and respond in EVERY situation. He will meet you where you are and you will know He is with you, He hears you and He loves you, He cares about you. He will make a way in your desert. He will cause rivers of blessings to flow into your dry places. That’s who He is. That’s how He feels about you! He’s the God that cares enough to give the time and attention to PERSONALLY dry every tear from your eyes! A personal-loving-caring-compassionate God! Oh how He loves YOU!
“For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.” Revelation? ?7:17? ?
Just want to post something uplifting here today. We all hit moments during our journey where we feel helpless. But what matters is how we react to these feelings. Dr. Travis Bradbury sites the following countless examples of successful people who would have never made it if they had succumbed to feelings of helplessness.
Walt Disney was fired from the Kansas City Star because he "lacked imagination and had no good ideas." Oprah Winfrey was fired from her job as a TV anchor in Baltimore for being "too emotionally invested in her stories." Henry Ford had two failed car companies prior to succeeding with FORD. And Steven Spielberg was rejected by USC's Cinematic Arts School multiple times.
To overcome common setbacks with Morgellons, keep a "growth mindset," where you realize that in order to succeed you become willing to fail hard and then bounce right back. Or, "simply stay the course, no matter what." If you do, you will succeed. believe it!
Strength and Love,
| Laura (aunt)|
This is such a great message. Although it may be difficult to stay centered around "Christ" we must strive daily to accomplish this. If we focused more on him instead of what has happened to us; the outcome would be amazing. Again I say this can be difficult. Thank you for these inspiring messages. Hopefully little by little we will all learn the truth in his word and become willing to receive the grace of his love.
In Christ Love,
Monday’s thought of the day from Pastor Scotty
I bless you day
Not everyone is going to love us, encourage us, rejoice in our victories and blessings or want the best for us. BUT GOD DOES ALL OF THOSE! God declares that grace and favor surround us, that we are above and not beneath!
We might have to shed a tear or two. We might have to catch our breath from time to time. We might have to have a talk with ourself now and then. We may have to encourage and pat our own self on the back sometimes because no one else is, but we keep going. We keep moving forward no matter how hard things get.
So when you feel like you can't anymore...God can. Even when you can't see the breakthrough getting closer, God does. Just lean on Him. He is not disappointed in you. He wants to be the strength flowing through your soul, carrying you into a new season.
And If no one ever looks at you and says you're going to make it,look in the mirror (Word of God) and say those words to yourself! The Word of God we speak to ourselves and to our circumstances during those times is powerful!
Know this: What is IN you will always take you further than what is around you! Always believe God for the final outcome! Things may have started wrong, but in the end it will turn for your good! Your obstacle may be high, but your God Is The Most High! Your enemy may be powerful, but your God is All Powerful! There is healing, victory, liberty, forgiveness, power, peace, everlasting life in the name of the Lord!
"You are no longer a slave, for I have made you My child and My heir." Galatians 4:7
Praying that this thought of the day from our Pastor Bro Scotty uplifts you. I really needed this message today.
I want to encourage you today to not allow the enemy, life, or people to beat you down and steal your joy. Never let someone who cannot discern your value rob you of another moment of your life. Don't let "man's rejection" of you determine your attitude. You are valuable to God and you have a purpose. If outside validation is your only source of nourishment, you’ll hunger for the rest of your life. Learn to let God’s love and acceptance satisfy you and empower you! By God's grace you'll move from pain to purpose, from hurt to health and from wounds to wisdom!
There is no one on planet earth that can separate you from the glory and the beauty of how God loves you. Nobody! God is breathing new life into your dreams and new hope into your heart! You are fearfully and wonderfully made with Father's loving care. You are precious. No one loves you more than your God. And when you're tempted to lose hope remember, His love is greater than your disappointments. His grace is greater than your failures and His plan is bigger than your dreams!
“Let me hear of your unfailing love each morning, for I am trusting you. Show me where to walk, for I give myself to you.” Psalm 143:8
Good morning and happy Friday! I hope everyone has a blessed day. This is the thought for those joyful Friday from my God given Pastor Bro Scotty
Let's get our perspective in line with God's today. We haven't gone through all the hell, obstacles and trials we've gone through to just quietly lay down or hide in the corner!
I declare no spiritual abortions or miscarriages in my life. The promises of God will come to pass!
I have greatness on the inside of me "In Christ". And I will fulfill my God ordained destiny!
God has divine appointments and opportunities in my path. I will be at the right place at the right time. Advance is in my pipeline. God has powerful suddenlys in my path. Favor!
I am equipped "In Christ" to defeat the works of the enemy, no weapon formed against me will prosper. The devil is a liar!
Jesus paid too high of a price for me to live too low of a life. I am a mighty weapon in the hands of my God!
I am a person of destiny and I have an assignment to fulfill. I am equipped, gifted and called and increase is coming my way!
My past doesn't belong to me anymore. Jesus bought and purchased it with His blood. It belongs to Him! So this is my testimony today..."Don't judge me by my past. I don't live there anymore!" Redeeming God!
Step by step and Day by Day I am flourishing Spirit, Soul, and Body like never before!
Every investment and seed I have sewn will produce a harvest that is supernatural and ongoing. God will provide and abundance will fill every part of my life!
My life will marked by the very presence of Him who causes all things to work together for my good and His glory! My body is healed and my youth is renewed !
May this start your day off on a positive note. I also wanted to add Ecclesiastes 4:9-12New International Version (NIV)
9 Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their labor:
10 If either of them falls down,
one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls
and has no one to help them up.
11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
But how can one keep warm alone?
12 Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
If one of us are down we all need to encourage those that are broken or sick and lift one another up. Hope everyone is on their way to recovery.
I bless your day
I couldn't agree with you more Ant Laura!
I look forward to reading these daily but definitely gets my day started on the right positive note.
Today's thought of the day from Bro Scotty
You were born in this generation to unleash God’s glory for His purpose. Remember, you have a lot to live for and believe for and every reason to keep moving forward. There is something in your future worth fighting for in your today!
Life is a daily process. Many times discouragement comes from wrong perspective. Getting lost in the feeling you aren't there yet and missing out on the now while you're believing for the then. You're not going to master the rest of your life in one day, sometimes we forget that. It's so important to learn to deal with problems and obstacles one day at a time. Just trust in doing the right thing in the moment, in the hour.
The world glorifies the finished product, God glorifies the work in progress. Master the day...Then just keep doing that every day! While you're in the daily process God can provide a great opportunity in a very common task.
There will be seasons in your life where Gods grace and glory will be demonstrated by the fire you went through! The presence of trials doesn't destroy the potential for triumph. Make up your mind you're not going to quit until you see the fruit of what God has placed in your heart. He has a plan for you. He has a more awesome plan for your life than you could ever imagine simply because He loves you!
The voice that is saying to you to quit, stop, give up, admit failure, you're too weak, it's too late...THAT VOICE IS A LIE! Carry on, don't quit, don't give in to discouragement!
Today I pray that the Blood of Jesus secures your promise and purpose. Your today and tomorrow will be all that God intended in the name of Jesus! Your breakthrough is coming to pass! You can do this...ONE MOMENT...ONE HOUR...ONE DAY AT A TIME!
"The Lord goes before you; He will be with you. He will not fail or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed." Deut.31:8
All I can say to this is; AMEN!
Thank you for that message.
In Christ Love,
Wanted to bless everyone today with this thought of the day from Pastor Scotty
They Say..."You're too this, you're too that, you're not enough this, you're not enough that"...the list goes on and on about what people say. People can become suicidal about what people say about them on social media and conversation. It's time to get your destiny back from public opinion, public approval, and social media! When is the last time you told your heart and mind that?
Declare it today..."My life is not ordered by or directed by what they say or their timeline. My life is directed by God. I am a child of God. He knows me and the number of hairs on my head. My steps are ordered by Him! He opens doors for me no man can shut. He shuts doors no man can open! My path is getting brighter day by day! I am a child of God. I have the greatest power in the universe inside me. I can overcome any stronghold! Nothing and no one is stronger than Jesus in my life and future! There is a God in heaven who knows my beginning and end. My God has the final say! Hallelujah!"
The words "As we grow closer to God; we become stronger" really touched my heart. Many times God was the only one I could talk to about this disease. His truth is now my guide. I understand through the tough trials we are all going through, he is there with us and for us.
Once again, thank you for this "Thought of the Day."
In Christ Love,
Friday's Thought of the Day
10 Powerful Power Points
Stop having continual mental conversations with those who hurt you. It's a waste of valuable energy. They can't hear you. Instead focus on God. His ears are always open. His arms are always waiting. Worship and surrender the hurt to Him.
Use your faith and energy to increase your dominion and influence, not trying to diminish and put down others.
Focus on who you are, not on what you're not and not on what other people are and are not!
Just as surely as people can be mean, hurtful, cruel and vindictive, God is good, loving, compassionate and full of grace!
Focus on what you can do, not what you can't and not on what other people are doing or not doing.
Focus on what you do have, not what you don't and not on what others have or don’t have. When we focus on our blessings, our problems don't feel nearly as big...#lookforthegood!
Don’t allow your wounds to turn you into someone you’re not. Pain is part of life, but it doesn’t have to be permanent!
Falling down can help you grow and learn but staying down is how you die. Endings always bring new beginnings. Take that setback as a setup to improving yourself and growing closer to God. You will become stronger. God gave you the authority and power to get back up. So rise and shine!
Intimacy and identity are wrapped up together. When we see who HE is, we see who WE are. JESUS IS THE TRUTH ABOUT YOU!
God is the Father of your future. Although you may find it difficult sometimes, resist the urge to obsess or panic. REST knowing He is holding you, leading you and guiding you. "Don’t panic. God, your God, is right there with you, fighting with you against your enemies, fighting to win." Deuteronomy 20:4
In Christ Love
PS hope everyone has a safe and fun weekend
It's a great day to pray together!
I pray the blood of Jesus covers you and your family from every evil plot of the enemy! No weapon formed against you will prosper!
I pray the Holy Spirit fills you today, leads you and prays through you to bring God's perfect will to pass, in Jesus Name. Whatever weapon the enemy has formed against you will not prosper!
I pray the Lord's strength in every weak and weary place, supernatural power in your life in Jesus name. I pray God covers you with His Presence and power right now in the name of Jesus! The Lord is your refuge and hiding place.
Pray it and Say it..."Father, thank You that you care for me, love me and provide for all my needs. Anxiety has NO power over me today!"
Pray it and Say it..."Thank you Father that You, The Author and the Finisher of my faith, are working on my behalf. You will finish what You started in my life, no matter how it looks right now!"
I pray every spirit of fear, worry and stress working against your mind, your peace and your joy cease now in the name of Jesus! God has you!
I declare peace over you in the name of Jesus. Whatever you are going through may God lift your mind out of stress, worry and anxiety!
I pray for restoration of families. Let every attack against your household be cancelled in the name of Jesus!
I pray over you. God is giving you strength for every weak place, clarity for every confused place and healing for every hurt place, NOW!
I pray that Jehovah Jireh will show Himself strong in every part of your life. I pray that everything you've lost is given back and with interest! That your future will be something beyond your expectation. You are called, anointed, chosen and walking in the favor of your glorious God! A new day and season is yours!
In Christ Love
Faith doesn't prevent "life" from happening, it carries you through it. You will make mistakes, have regrets, fall down, hurt others, hurt yourself, be hurt and be disappointed...BUT DON'T GIVE UP ON YOUR FUTURE AND STOP BELIEVING!
Forgive yourself, forgive others and move on. If you allow yourself to give in to pain, shame and regret you'll never see the miracle in the making for you! Just because you made a mistake doesn’t mean you are a mistake or have to to act like one. Receive the grace of God and let it go!
So...No matter how bad a situation looks, God can turn it around and even bless a mess! God knows what you need, when you need it and who you need for every season of your life. Most times He doesn’t give you all the details to your destiny. He only asks you to take the next step and trust Him.
Know today that He is going ahead of you and has things prepared for you in your future. Delay does not mean denial. The promises of God are yes and amen. Trust Him. Do your best and let God do the rest. He’s working things out for you!
"Cast your burden upon the LORD and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken." Psalm 55:22
In Christ Love

In Christ Love,
You may be tired, discouraged, frustrated or just plain worn out...But I pray this word comes alive for you!
I pray strength to every weak and weary place. Get ready for His supernatural power in your life. I pray that everything you've lost is given back and with interest. Your future will be something beyond your expectation. NEW beginnings!
I pray over you today that the God of breakthroughs would burst forth in your life and your best days, days filled with healing and health, joy and peace, new strength and passion, love, faith and blessed hope would begin today! Let every spirit of fear, worry and stress working against your mind, your peace and your joy cease now in the name of Jesus!
God has you!
A door closed on you...So what! God will bring the greatest of blessings from the worst of circumstances. Expect a better door to open! I am praying God opens doors of opportunity and closes the doors to the things holding you back in the name of Jesus! He makes a way for you where there is no way! Say It Today: Doors are opening for me today that no one can close and favor surrounds me like a shield, in Jesus Name!
“What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all, how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?" Romans 8
My Pastor Bro Scotty
