When you choose to walk in the light and live out Gods calling on your life... the attack’s from the enemy come. And they come hard. .
.
.
Unfortunately, the enemy will tell you believable lies during these attacks. He pulls whatever he can to pull you back to the darkness.
Good news: we serve a God who has already won. Satan’s attack’s are powerless because of our God. .
.
.
I am feeling the attack’s today. I’m feeling them something fierce. So this afternoon I am spending time in prayer. Remembering I do not walk in darkness and I will praise the Light of the world who gives me life. .

Quite literally #nottodaysatan

My blog name is Prayer Filled Chaos and tonight was a PRIME example of why I chose this name:
.
.
.
We are currently trying to sleep train our littlest back to where she used to be before daddy left for the field. Needless to say anytime we left the room she’d scream. I went in there to rub her back and be soothing like all the books say. Finally on the 4th time going in I was like “what am I doing trying to get this child to find comfort in me.. that’s not right. She’s not mine she’s God’s child. He’s her number 1 comforter.”
.
.
.
So I hugged her and I prayed fiercely for her and over her. I prayed for a cloak of comfort over her, rest in Gods arms, and all of the above so she could sleep peacefully in God’s hands tonight.
.
.
.
Guys... I walked out of the room. She let out one shriek when I shut the door. Then.... nothing. No crying. No whining. You could hear her settle into her bed. Then...sleep. .
.
.
Our lives are super chaotic but God’s love is real. He is very much alive and real. And he believes you are worth talking to and listening to. Our great God loves us enough to hear us and listen to our words when we pray. We just have to be willing to step out in faith and seek him... with passion.

Guys I’d love to hear some of your special prayer stories and I know a lot of people who would want to hear them too! Share yours using the hashtag #prayerfilledchaos so we can all get fired up with the Holy Spirit by the encouragement of your prayers! 🔥🙌🏼

All too often I associate the Old Testament with just the Israelites and their promise. This morning, I am reminded that even before Jesus, foreigners were accepted into his covenant. (Remember Rahab anyone?) more than that Isaiah 56 lays out how Our Father welcomes them in. .
.
.
I am reminded that I too am a foreigner brought into the covenant by the blood of Jesus. I pray I remember that every moment of today. I am a foreigner who’s life was bought with the ultimate sacrifice.

Lighting a fire during the girls nap time! 🙌🏼 🔥 .

Because even in our toughest time our lord is still with us, wether we are conscious of him or not. #happytuesday #brokenandredeemed

Currently, I’m having some trouble with being in limbo on an opportunity that is big for our family. Anyone go through that? No? Never? 😂
.
.
.
I’m continually asking God for peace and joy through his will for our family no matter what. I’ve been praying this for days now, multiple times a day. WELL, today during scripture time, I am reminded of how much Jesus knew throughout his lifetime. How in tune he was with God’s will and how he yielded and went to die and suffer regardless because he knew the bigger picture (our salvation) was worth every bit of it. .
.
.
This is why we look to Jesus. Because even in the small battles he holds the answers, the encouragement, the peace. I don’t need to know the outcome to know Joy. To know peace. My joy and peace is not dependent on my circumstance no matter how difficult that is to remember at times. It’s not. I refuse to lose sight of the bigger picture. Absolutely refuse it. ❤️

“Yet it was the will of the Lord to crush him; he has put him to grief, when his soul makes an offering for guilt, he shall see his offspring; he shall prolong his days; the will of the lord shall prosper in his hand.” Isaiah 53:10

I’m having a strong day. This morning as I was praying, I was reminded how two days ago I was not having a strong day. .
.
.
I was feeling selfish, negative, and my joy was dim. Thankfully I serve a God who finds me in those places. Sends me friends who swoop in with words of wisdom and encouragement and meets me with conviction. .
.
.
So this afternoon I continue to open my heart to new ways to pray and spend time lifting those who So selflessly lifted me ❤️

This week, I am studying about overcoming fear and weakness, and the story of Moses. One thing that stuck out in my study today was this - we were never meant to be good enough. We were meant to come to the end of ourselves so that we can be rescued and then rest in the great I Am! How many times do we say 'Here I am Lord, use me', but in the back of our minds, or even out loud, begin to list all of the 'but not this...' "limits"? My hand was the first to go up in the air! Do you ever wonder what would happen if we were to truly follow God through his full plan for us? Scary? Oh, you bet BUT walk through that open door anyway! #brokenandredeemed #LoveGodGreatly #faith #opendoor #overcomer

Today on the blog... a strategy to help turn scripture into prayer! ❤️

With recent news there is so much light to be shed. .
.
.
If it’s not evident to you now, let this be another sign for you. People need you. They need people like you. If you don’t know your neighbors, change that. Do a heart check. If you’re in a place of strength, reach out to others and create a community where your people feel safe. God calls us to this you guys. If you’re in a place of darkness. I see you. I pray you reach out and if you can’t, I pray someone reaches you. .
.
.
Extend your bubble. Get out of it. Pop it. Fill your life with all the people in real life, real time. The people down the road, the people at work, the people you cross paths with. Help foster a place for them and you, a safe place. .
.
.
And if you’re there. If you have a community, don’t be ashamed to talk about your struggles. Have the difficult conversations and have each other’s back.
.
.
.
To my own community, thank you. For giving me a safe place to be open about my struggles. Thank you for having my back. I hope you know I’ve got yours too ❤️

No matter what things we may lose that are earthly - jobs, relationships, material possessions, even joy and confort- we cannot lose Him!

When Joey leaves I always have a hard time going to sleep. I’ve been going to sleep no earlier than 1am the last few nights and waking up with my littles. Y’all, I’m feeling it. .
.
.
Today, both girls went down for a nap so easy, which hasn’t happened in a while. I had free time for the first time since Joey left! lol All I could think about was how much of a nap I could get in. .
.
.
Then the Spirit moved and God softly spoke, “look how much time you have to spend with me.” I fear God enough to not ignore him 😂 so I forwent my nap and I came here. .
.
.
During that time I was reminded of how much he loves the tiredness and brokenness. He loves to fill the sleepy part of me with his fruit and word. He loves to fill my brokenness with joy and peace. He loves doing that for all of us. I know he wants me to rest but he knew I needed him more than the nap today and I’m so grateful and in awe that he speaks to me in the midst of my sin and shortcomings.
.
.
.
And yes, I absolutely prayed for sleep tonight. #noshame #hecaresaboutthattoo 😂

Starting this day with bible study and cold brew coffee on the patio. #socksandsandals #onlyayhomewear #brokenandredeemed #lovegodgreatly #coldbrew #quietplace #saturday

Intercession is so close to my heart. Today on the blog I talk about praying for my husband. Link in bio! ❤️
.
.
.

This sweet girl never tires of looking at all the helicopters. She immediately gets excited, tries to find it and points. (Y’all they literally are flying alllll the time here so you can imagine 😂)
.
.
.
As I watched her yesterday, I thought “man I hope I have that childlike excitement when I read God’s word or just God moments in general.” Immediately followed by “I hope she has it too!”
.
.
Here’s to praying I don’t grow weary, that I’m always looking for him and the moment I see him, hear him, feel him, I get a childlike excitement that never tires and that my girls have it too ❤️
.

This morning I spent some time with self healing. Feeling completely unworthy of his presence. .
.
.
Then no faster than I could feel unworthy, the Lord began to speak to me more than I had heard in a while. He came pouring in. Full of words for friends that my prayers were for. .
.
.
Y’all how incredible is that? I am so humbled by his grace. Where I feel unworthy and undeserving, he says the opposite. How thankful I am for his presence and Grace. .
.
.
Today, if you’re feeling unworthy, dry, undeserving know that the Lord wants to take that and replace it with grace and love. Such an incredible God we serve ❤️
