Founder and CEO of Coastline Women’s Center: Abagails Place, and Smith Evangelistic Ministries. More importantly a Daughter of the King, wife, and mother simply trying to follow Jesus, be obedient and see His Kingdom established on earth. My desire is for all people to be healed and restored to their true identity in Christ!
I have never been more excited and full of joy as I am right now! I have prayed for years to see the end of Roe and believed God would do it! Yes, I know nothing is “official” that may be true in the physical, but not in the spiritual!
This past year He began to speak louder in my prayer time. “Get Ready, I AM going to do it.” Now, we see events leading up to God making what has been wrong, RIGHT. Glory! Many still doubt, I do not. God will do this, so others know it was only Him! We must sing HIs praises! Sing “IT IS FINISHED” IT IS FINISHED!
God says this is the awakening! THE AWAKENING IS COMING THROUGH THE END OF ABORTION!
The awakening is coming through the blood! Get ready! Join me in praying for the Supreme Court judges that God has appointed for such a time as this! To save generations. His government is being re-established, not man’s. Pray protection. They will not be moved or shaken, but their conviction, obedience, and righteousness will bind their hearts together and God is the cord holding all things together. Woe is the individuals that try and break that cord. Our God reigns and is showing himself as the MIGHTY DEFENDER!
““THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS UPON ME (the Messiah), BECAUSE HE HAS ANOINTED ME TO PREACH THE GOOD NEWS TO THE POOR. HE HAS SENT ME TO ANNOUNCE THE RELEASE (pardon, forgiveness) TO THE CAPTIVES, AND RECOVERY OF SIGHT TO THE BLIND, TO SET FREE THOSE WHO ARE OPPRESSED (downtrodden, bruised, crushed by tragedy), TO PROCLAIM THE FAVORABLE YEAR OF THE LORD [the day when salvation and the favor of God abound greatly].”” Luke 4:18,19 AMP
Very powerful words indeed. 2022 is upon us and I believe this is the year The Heavenly Father will put His heart on display greater than ever before. The Love of the Father will be known. He is looking for vessels to carry and impart His love and Healing to all those in need. Jesus was prepared, empowered, anointed, and appointed by God to Bring Good News to our spirits, to release us from slavery and to give us vision and understanding of being the sons and daughters of the Most High.
Jesus accomplished His mission and now as believers, His mission, His Kingdom, lives within us. The greatest blessing we can receive is to know and understand the Heart of the Father. We must learn to receive well because it is a gift! When we can receive and understand the special creation of us, His matchless immeasurable love for us then we are ready to pour it out on others.
For many of us there may be work to do in our own hearts first. God deeply cares about our heart for out of it, everything in life flows. So many are hurting, broken. The church itself is broken and God desires to heal His church. Religion will not do any longer. It has led many astray and hurt many lives. Only Jesus will do, a person.
People are seeking something real, genuine, something or someone they can relate to. Jesus came to relate with us. Many in the days ahead will be looking for something…somewhere…someone that can help them. God has been preparing, and filling the vessels of His children to be a light in darkness, to be peace in chaos, to be trees of righteousness planted by the Lord in the midst of storms and many will be drawn to them. These children, women and men of God will not be shaken.
People will come from the north, south, east, and west to experience the healing touch of God. Spoken words, worship, and prayers of deliverance will set them free as they come into the realization of who they are and experience the Father’s Love. Yes, God has been preparing the hearts of those who know what it is to count the cost, to abandon all, be obedient, and yield to the work of the Spirit. There is a great work being done all throughout the world.
Many camps, many armies are being prepared to care, minister, and reveal the Heart of The Father to all those hurting and lost. This is the reason we exist: It is a love relationship between us and the Father, to know and be known, and to make that love known to everyone else so all humanity may come into the knowledge of salvation, healing, and favor of God.
“I always pray that the God our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may grant you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation that gives you a deep and personal and intimate insight into the true knowledge of Him for we know the Father through the Son and I pray that the eyes of your heart the very center and core of your being may be enlightened flooded with light by the Holy Spirit so that you will know and cherish the hope, the divine guarantee, the confident expectation to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints, God’s people, and so that you will begin to know what the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His active, spiritual power is in us who believe.” Ephesians 1:17-19 AMP.
Jesus accomplished two great works on the cross in one great selfless act. Those two things were salvation and healing of all mankind. It was a gift! All we must do is accept it. It has already been accomplished. We have already been set free! We have put ourselves in bondage by believing the lies spoken, or pondering wrong thoughts about who we are. Many times it is from words spoken over us or even words we have spoken over ourselves.
Words are the most powerful thing in the universe. Charles Capps said “Faith filled words will put you over. Fear filled words will defeat you. So it is then that spoken words program your spirit (heart) either to success or defeat.” Wow! So could it be that we set our lives to motion by the very words that come out of our own mouth? I believe so.
The Lord begin to speak to my Spirit and this is what I heard and begin to write. “Get Ready, Get things in order. This is the Favorable year of the Lord! My children will walk in Favor. The things I have purposed and already given to my children will not be taken away by anyone. My children will begin to flow in prosperity, in overflow for the purposes of advancing the Kingdom. Things will be given over to my children for MY GOOD to be accomplished. For I am the Lord who is good, my mercy is everlasting, and my truth endureth to all generations. Psalm 100:5
Less will be more, Expect to see my greatest movements in the smaller things. My greatest work will not be seen or heard from social media, but by word of mouth..Just as the days and ministry of Jesus.”
So children of God, This is the favorable year of our Lord! Proclaim it! You have been given favor, walk in it, expect it. Get ready, get in position, get your family and house in order (As for me and my house we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15) get in alignment with the right house of worship, with the right tribe, fellowship of believers that God has purposed for you…for such a time. Advance the purposes and plans of God, not man and test everything with the Word of God.
God is getting ready to pour out His Love, to reveal His Heart. There will be a pool of healing that takes place! Discover God’s heart for the needy: orphans, widows, the poor and oppressed. Give generously and bless others! REVEAL THE FATHER’S HEART. He is looking for those who will put His Heart on display. Be Bold!
This is the word the Lord has given me this year, Bold. and “whatsoever He saith unto you, DO IT!” John 2:5
May you all experience His grace in the New Year. May you move past the past and forward into His Glory with His grace upon your life. May you be strengthened, restored, healed, and experience His favor in your assignments to be all He has purposed you to be!
To lose a parent is so hard. You cling to anything that brings you comfort. For me, the greatest thing that brings me comfort in loosing my daddy is his writing. This is a poem he wrote about discovering he was going to be a dad. I hope you enjoy it. It’s called “GLEE”
“Exultant and magnified to its highest degree is the great joy I felt when I learned of thee. Gene, I have something to tell you said she, but I don’t want you to be mad with me. I understand, I replied. Please tell me your news. I’m having a baby and she began to cry. Sitting motionless I too begin to cry. Then, a sudden erupting spirit came through me all the way to my fingertips feeling like sparklers shooting fire and light. I then held her and put my hand on her still flat little stomach and felt the warmness of fatherhood and our new little Jeannie. I believed in God you see at this time and I cried out to Him giving thanks on Mount High as my voice begin to chime through the valleys of Heaven and her mountains so High! Jeannie Marie Scott was listed that day with a father and a mother who still crave her with GLEE; till this day in their own special ways.” Author- Thomas Eugene Scott
Today we are spending a beautiful day at the ocean. The salty air and water always bring rest and clarity to my mind and soul. As I sat glazing upon the beautiful ocean, God began to speak and give me a revelation. I quickly grabbed my journal, a pen and begin to write. This moment inspired this blog post.
My word this year was launch which means to start, or set in motion. There has been a series of things that have entered into my life since the first of the year. I will call these life ordained interruptions. We all have them. Sometimes they can turn into great trials. As believers we will go through many trials but we have a choice to make.. to become bitter or better! We must choose to be better and carry on with what the Lord has called us to do and be used by God, Philippians 1:6. It’s not what happens to us that can ruin us- it is our wrong response to what happens that brings the ruins.
The world is quickly changing all around us. Our fellowship with other believers has been interrupted. We no longer gather in churches the way we use to. I have heard many say this has brought hardship to their faith and a sense of isolation. To some degree I have felt the same, but today the Lord spoke and said you don’t need the church, the church needs You! Now I want to stop right here and press into what I just said or rather what God is saying to us all! Heaven is waiting on you! I don’t mean we don’t need fellowship with other believers, because we do. I mean we should not become dependent on a building to be the church. Here’s a few questions: what have you been doing or rather not doing why heaven is waiting on you? Are you standing still, because the world is standing still? Are you sitting on pause or go? Have you shutdown? Are you allowing yourself to flow and be a light in a dark world?
Our greatest form of communication around the world is through a platform now called “zoom”. If you have been invited to a meeting through zoom you may be placed in what is called a waiting room. If so, you have to sit and wait until your host arrives and the meeting begins. If you’re not a patient person, this can be a little frustrating. I bring this example up because this is how we can feel when we are just sitting around waiting to accomplish God’s will. When we are not walking out our purpose and using what God has put within us and created us to do we can feel frustrated, discouraged, and powerless.
God has prepared something for you. Take your ministry given by him and go! Go be the church. Go into the world! fully focus on what God is calling you to do and do it. Sometimes you have to let go of something to move on. You cannot hold onto the past and move into the future. Be focused ahead. Wise people look forward not backwards. Be a prisoner of the Lord and walk worthy in your calling. Surrender! The hour is urgent, because our culture is waging war. Don’t be governed by fear. You have been prepared for a moment like this. The Lord knew you would be living on earth during these times. You were created for it, born for it. Sometimes the Lord calls you to a season of waiting. Sometimes he calls you to a season of rest. Sometimes he calls you to a season to move. Have peace in all seasons because whatever God created you to do, no one can do but you! Heaven is waiting on you.
If you’re uncertain of what your ministry is, it is your secret sorrow. Your secret sorrow is your purpose. It is that thing that overwhelms you and you feel anointed for when you’re in that deep place with the Lord. It’s also what you doubt, fear, and what wrecks you when you’re not in that place, doing that thing. So friends, Go and do what the great Sheperd says do. You are called to risk it all for those outside your gates. Your gates are the walls around your place of comfort and security. Be brave. Now is the time. Heaven is waiting on you to move. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
There is a day on the calendar we celebrate each year called Mother’s Day. It’s a day we give honor and celebrate our Mothers through gifts meals, or a special visit. Each year when this day arises I am filled with a wave of emotions, as many are. Yes, Mother’s Day may bring feelings of joy, sadness, or both.
Mother’s Day first began in 1908 when a lady named Anna Jarvis held a memorial service for her Mother in a church in West Virginia. Then on May 9th 1914, President Wilson proclaimed the first Mother’s Day asking all Americans to give public thanks to their Mothers.
As a Mother, you may be celebrating with your living children, or you may be missing the embrace of a child in Heaven. The loss feels sometimes too much to bare. Oh how we long to see their face and feel their embrace. “Blessed are they that mourn, for they will be comforted” Matthew 5:4
As a child, you may be missing your Mother who is no longer on earth. You miss her laugh, her hugs and you are forced to just cling to her memories. For many, Mothers’s Day will never be quite the same. May today and everyday you feel her presence through Jesus Christ our Lord. “As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you; and you will be comforted” Isaiah 66:13
Then there are others. My sisters, my friends, that desperately desires to be a mother. You long to hear a little voice call you Mommy. You are exhausted from praying and waiting. For you Mother’s Day is a reminder of what you desire, but can’t seem to have. You feel forgotten. I’ve been there. I know how you feel. With my heart broken, I watched many Mother’s Day celebrations pass me by. I say to you there is Hope. May your heart be uplifted. May you experience the miracles of God in Jesus name. “Blessed is she who believes what the Lord told her would be accomplished” Luke 1:45
I am blessed to still have my Mother. I am also blessed to have children on earth, but I long to see my daughter in Heaven. Each Mother’s Day I wonder how it would be if she was here. Whatever your circumstances are I pray you are comforted. I pray for your heart to be filled with God’s promises and Joy.
From one Mother’s Heart to the next I bless your Spirit with the Words of our Father:
“And Mary said, ‘My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he has looked on the humble estate of his servant. For behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed.’” – Luke 1:46-48
“So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” – 1 Corinthians 13:13
“And his mother treasured up all these things in her heart.” – Luke 2:51
“Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: ‘Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.’” – Proverbs 31:28-31
“For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.” Psalm 139:13-14
“You should be known for the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God.” 1 Peter 3:4
Since yesterday I have been pondering the word…suffering. It was a tough day to say the least. I was feeling pressure. Pressure in decision making, Pressure in homeschooling, Pressure through emails, texts, social media, the needs of my child, Pressure concerning ministry, Pressure to provide, to survive, to be a good example to my child, neighbors, Pressure awaiting the Governors update on the Covid-19 virus, and the list could go on and on…
Then my mind drifted back to my visit to Nazareth. I recalled the smell in the air, the breeze on my face, the sunshine on my back as our tour guided us through the wine press and the olive press. We were educated on the olive crusher and the process. Pressure is what it takes to create the best quality olive oil from olives that we enjoy today. In the midst of his demonstration, he paused and talked about the pressing and crushing Jesus went through in the Garden of Gethsemane ( filled with olive trees) before He endured the cross. There was great meaning in why Jesus chose this location to pray. The pressure was so intense his sweat became blood and oh the crushing on the cross became the absolute best, eternal sacrifice poured out for us, that we may live and be one with Him. John 10:10
￼All of a sudden, the pressure I was feeling became very small.
Then I remembered the pit we visited. It was called the “Sacred Pit” believed to be the place Jesus was kept after beaten awaiting the cross. I remember my knees lowering to the floor and sobbing uncontrollably as you could sense the suffering and His Holiness. I was overtaken by the vision of Him laying there suffering for me and for YOU.
My failures yesterday enduring suffering resulted in my 5 year old, Luke ministering to me. In a moment of weakness and fatigue I lost it and began to cry. I didn’t want him to see me that way, but God had chosen this moment when we both should have been asleep to advance the Gospel. The Jesus in Luke dried my tears, hugged me, comforted me, and told me everything would be ok. Then, instead of me singing him to sleep, he sung me to sleep.
I think if we look closely, all around us during such chaos and fear, the Gospel is being advanced. God is using all those that carry His light, young or old. A couple days ago, I was leading a prayer walk around my neighborhood for others and now I was needing prayers myself and I was amazed in how God spoke to me through my little Luke.
Jesus advanced the Gospel through the cross. Paul advanced the Gospel through chains. How might we advance the Gospel today through these uncertain times?
A great minister and teacher Elizabeth Elliot said “we will never understand suffering unless we understand the love of God and we will never understand the love of God until we understand suffering”￼
She also said ” sometimes the worst thing that may happen in human history will turn out to be the best thing because it will save the world”
Our stability of faith is the most important thing right now.
Trust God. Accept now. See later. His grace is all we need and how can we be grateful in the midst of suffering? Well, God is still love! Nothing has changed that! Aren’t you thankful for His love? ♥️
Standing in the very place where Peter was recommissioned was humbling to say the least. I felt my knees wanting to lower to the ground. Looking across the water you could envision that moment when Peter was fishing and recognizes Jesus standing on the shore and leaps into the water, “It is the Lord!” rushing towards his embrace. John 21. Here is a picture of the exact location where this moment takes place!
Peter is the greatest story of denial, Gods mercy, and grace told in the Bible in my opinion. It’s a beautiful picture of Gods mercy and grace.
So Peter was one of Jesus closest disciples. Remember after Jesus was rejected and left Nazareth He went to live in Capernaum with Peter and his mother-in-law. ￼Peter may have spoken to Jesus more than any others. Can you imagine the relationship? If so, then you can imagine the mournful heart Peter had after denying Jesus three times!￼ After denying Jesus, Peter went back to doing the only thing he knew to do, fish. After Peter reaches Jesus on the shore, Jesus asked Peter three times do you love me? The third time Jesus asked Peter, The Bible says Peter was hurt. I can only imagine the sound of Peter’s defeated voice when he said “Lord you know all things, you know that I love you￼￼￼ ” John 21: 17
Then Jesus tells him to “feed my lambs, take care of my sheep, feed my sheep”… Follow me! Jesus recommissioned Peter, because He saw his heart, and He sees our heart too! I find this very comforting that in all of our mistakes God sees our heart. He knows when we truly love Him and he will seek us out just like He did Peter and He will re-commission us again to do his work￼!
Beautiful statue of the recommission. Can you see yourself in this picture?
Jonah is such a small little book containing only 4 chapters, but with a BIG message. A message of obedience. The word of the Lord came to Jonah and said ” Go To the great city of Nineveh and preach against it because it’s wickedness has come up before me￼￼, But Jonah ran away from the Lord and headed for Tarshish. He went down to Joppa where he found a ship bound for that port. After paying the fare, he went aboard and sailed for Tarshish to flee from the Lord￼.” Jonah 1:1-3 Here we stand at the port where Jonah came to board the boat to Tarshish.
As I stood there looking out upon the water, I thought, the port of decision￼ and how I could easily relate to what Jonah was feeling. God Sometimes calls you to difficult tasks. These tasks are out of your comfort zone￼. It would be easy to follow the desires of the flesh, but that would be a path of disobedience. As we all stood there, there was silence. I think many of us were in a season of decision making, transition. Finally, our teacher spoke to us and said: “God has a call on your life. A direction you should go. Don’t fight it. It’s easier God’s way the first time”. These words pierced our being. The story goes on to say that “The Lord sent a great wind on the sea and a violent storm arose” doing things our way can create a massive storm. It can send us down a path of circumstances instead of blessings. During the storm Jonah was found sleeping. Our teacher said that ones that are running away from God’s will spend a lot of time sleeping. The story goes on to say that Jonah directed the men on the ship to throw him overboard and the storm would calm, and it did. God commanded a big fish to swallow Jonah and he remained in the belly of the fish for three days. During his time in the belly he prayed and repented to God. Then the Lord commanded the fish to vomit Jonah on to dry land. Then guess what? Jonah goes to Nineveh, brings the message of the Lord, and the people turn from their evil ways. ￼￼What great compassion God showed Jonah and the people of Nineveh. I am also comforted that there is a message of second chances in this story.
So what has God commanded you to do? Sometimes He calls us to difficult assignments, but He promises to always be with us. The moral of the story is we must surrender, and follow God’s direction or we might get swallowed up by a big fish!
“Our feet have been standing within your gates, oh Jerusalem! ” Psalm 122:2
As we walked into the Old City of Jerusalem, I had no idea that the beautiful ancient limestone would have such an affect on me. We went underground and walked along the western wall of the Temple Mount . Here we saw some of the actual stone that King Herod brought there to build the city.
Suddenly, our teacher said look down at your feet. This is the actual ￼stone Jesus walked on and look behind you, these are the actual columns that stood when he walked by.
For me, everything stopped. Tears begin to fall. I didn’t even realize our group had moved on “Jeannie let’s go”￼. Then we made our way outside. As we rested our leader taught us about the western wall. He then prayed for us individually under the Israel Flag. The power of the Holy Spirit was so strong that strangers, not even a part of our group came over and asked to be prayed for. ￼￼Then we were released to go to the wall to pray. I covered my head and headed down to the Wall. When I got there I began to pray. I was uncontrollably sobbing as I felt the Lord’s presence so strongly. I began to see faces of people that I knew He wanted me to pray for. I hid my written prayer requests in the wall as so many were doing. ￼I did not expect the Western Wall to affect me so strongly. It’s no wonder why so many come and stand hours after hours every day to pray at its very existence. I marveled over the fact that people from all over the world are magnetized to this place to pray. It is said that miracles happen on that wall and that God is very attentive to the prayers He hears from there. It is Holy. ￼ He says “I have chosen and consecrated this temple so that my Name may be there forever. My eyes and my heart will always be there. ” 2 Chronicles 7:12. Wow! God’s presence is so powerfully strong on that Wall. ￼
In this blog, I will combine a couple of experiences. First, was a visit to Nazareth where Jesus grew up. Here Jesus was rejected after He stood among His own on the Sabbath, in the synagogue, and read
“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because He has anointed me ￼ to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor￼” Luke 4: 18,19
After being rejected, and with an attempt to throw Him off a cliff, Jesus left the only home He had known. He never returned, and spent the rest of His life ministering and traveling. This picture represents Jesus.
Jesus traveled to Capernaum and stayed for the next three years. It was the place of His ministry. Daily He delivered them and gave them hope, as He does for us today. It is now known as the “Town of Jesus”.
Here I had another spiritual encounter as I viewed the home where Jesus stayed, ( the home of Peter’s mother in law) and the synagogue in which He taught. Here Jesus would drive out a demon. Here is where Jesus would heal the mother-in-law of Peter. It was the site of His greatest number of miracles. ￼Here Jesus taught Peter, the disciples and all of us today the powerful message of forgiveness-
“Peter asked Jesus: Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times? Jesus said to him, I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven”￼￼￼
Jesus was very intentional and purposeful as He taught about the kingdom. He made every second count.
Do YOU need to forgive someone? May God give you the grace right now to forgive in the name of Jesus.
Can you imagine sitting around with Jesus in the home pictured below being a witness to His miracles?
I could sense His very presence there as if He was inviting me to come on in. He was talking with me, teaching me.
Here I am standing by the Sea of Galilee behind the home Jesus stayed in. ￼When Jesus felt it was time to leave the people didn’t want him to go they tried to keep him there, but He said, “I must proclaim the good news of the kingdom of God to the other towns also , because that is why I was sent” Luke 4: 43,44.
His love and compassion for all wrecks me. He wants no one to be lost, not one.
One of my last favorite memories of this site is when Jesus asked his disciples, “who do the people say the Son of Man is? They replied, some say John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and others say Jeremiah or one of the prophets. What about you He asked, who do you say I am? ￼￼And Simon son of Jonah answered , you are the Son of the living God￼. Jesus replied, blessed are you for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood but my Father in heaven. And I tell you that you are Peter and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”￼ Matthew 16: 13-19
This statue of Peter stands very close by the home of Peters mother in law where Jesus stayed. Notice the fish, scripture, rod, and the key to the kingdom he holds. This scripture has never came so alive to me as it did standing here today.
Peter would go on to be one of the greatest disciples of Jesus even after denying Him three times, but the greatest part of Peters story is yet to come…it’s a story that ministers and gives hope and promise to all of us today!
