Kingdon (House) ÷ CANNOT Stand

And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem said, “He has Beelzebub,” and, “By the ruler of the demons He casts out demons.” So He called them to Himself and said to them in parables: “How can Satan cast out Satan? If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand. And if Satan has risen up against himself, and is divided, he cannot stand, but has an end. No one can enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man. And then he will plunder his house.
Mark 3:22‭-‬27 NKJV

http://bible.com/114/mrk.3.22-27.NKJV

This great nations is divided. By political views, economic standings, religion, gender,  and ethnicity. Just to name a few. We have become a nation turned inward, onto itself, because we cannot see clearly. Sadly, this has been a long time coming. Yet, so many around the globe are just as divided. The division is so great that it has torn families apart, turned friends against one another, and race against race. Their are so many forms of division taking place that is difficult to list them all. But GOD! He knows ALL and see’s ALL. 

So I stand on the gap for those who divided and this nation. Lord, I ask that you take the reins and be in control. So that your love will flow, that those who say they are of/like you will display, for all to see, your love. Bring us back together, united in you. May the right decisions be made to your glory. We as a people stand up and declare your truth in all things. Not ashamed or full of fear. But standing firm and bold upon your word. The word that we have hid in our hearts so that cannot sin against you. Forgive us of all our sins and fill us with your Holy Spirit, to fill up those empty places. in all things we give thanks unto you, our Lord and Savior. Amen.

May God do a new thing in you. Have a wonderful day,

JRLL 💜

One day closer

We are one day closer to the first day of school. My children are excited and talking non stop. My husband and I are ecstatic. All summer we have been looking forward to these moments. Full of expectation, excitement, and anxiety.

As parents we trust the individuals what did the schools to take care of our children. We trust our children to do what they have been taught to do. Which is to do the best that I can, trust God, and walk in obedience to those who are over them. However, we also know and understand that we must also be mindful of the things that are going on in the world today. So we must cover our children as they go to school and go throughout their day. We must cover the individuals within the schools that we trust to take care of our children and watch over them. Praying earnestly for a wonderful and successful school year.

Social Media

We found out recently that my 9 Yr old created twitter and Snapchat accounts. To say that we were upset is a gross understatement. We found by him liking a post from dad. 😒 Its obvious that he did not think this through. The hubby immediately addressed the issue and the possible potential threats that could rise up.

However, I just could not get pass the fact that he did not ask first. Well, I can say that I do know why. He knew that we would not have agreed. Just like we did not agree to him starting a YouTube channel. He named some of his friends from school that has such accounts. Our response we OK, and we are not their parents. He knows our rules and such, but he continues to try to push the envelope. We continue to push back. So we took his phone until we decide to give it back.

 I was hurrt initially because he did not come to me to discuss. Usually he wiuld have. On top of that I have not been monitoring his email account. Which I might add is synced with my phone. So there is absolutely, no excuse on my end. SMH…so in my eyes there should not have been a delay in us finding out, that is if I monitored the account regularly. I understand that he wants to be like his friends but I feel as if he is moving too fast. It seems as if he is trying be 15 instead of 9. I know when I was growing up, I always wanted to be older but now I understand to let time take its course. 

A lot of the issues that he is facing and are going to face is so different from when I was growing up. All I had to worry about was my clothes, shoes, hair, and my grades. He has to be concerned with that and a plethora of other issues. Is it that we put too much pressure on him? Nah…I dont think so. He’s just trying to grow up before his time.

Traveling ➡ Life

During our spring break we, my family and I, traveled to the Sunshine State, Florida. I wish that I could say that it was to just spend time with family, visit Mickey and Minnie, or a host of other things. Sadly, I cannot. We came due to my mom having surgery on her back. 

This is my mom’s second back surgery in a little over a year. My hubby has gone through the same process, only he currently have had 11 back/neck surgeries. Not only my brother in-law as well. So they know from experience just what to expect and so on. This process is not easy and the recuperation time is long. Yet, we are trusting God that they will be healed and tell others of their healing/deliverance. 

I know you may be asking yourself why did she say deliverance? Well, I’m glad you asked.😉 The reason is due to the toll it takes on the mind. Its not a cake walk and I would never wish this on anyone. With any reoccurring medical condition it takes a toll mentally, physically, and spiritually. But I keep them before the Father through prayer.🙏

As we travel via the many highways and by ways, to make it to and from our destinations I have come to realize that you can learn a lot about a person while being confined to a vehicle of your choice. Well, in my case, not my choice for travel arrangements. But I digress. I’ve noticed that each time we travel for long distances we, my husband and I, tend to argue for the first 10-20 minutes of the trip. My kids take about 10-20 minutes to calm down, stop bothering each other, and relax into the ride. Then we on for a smooth ride for about 3-4 hours. Then on to the next set of struggles.😊

I always say, that if you are not learning then your not growing and living. Every moment in my life I am trying to learn from each experience, grow, and make the necessary changes to ensure that the Christ that is in me, shines for the world to see. 

So please pray for us and I will continue to pray for you! Love you all!

Be blessed and enjoy your day,

JRLL ❤
