JourneyWithMe

Through my journey with you…. Blogging with D, with love…

I am overwhelmed with emotions thinking of how powerful the word HOPE has become in my life. I like picking a word of the year that I really focus on, that I really let God speak to me on, that I really use as my ‘yearly resolution.’

I was hesitant to pick “hope” for my word this year. I was hesitant because I had lost a lot of “hope” in my life, on many personal situations. I really felt like God was telling me to trust Him and to really allow Him to show me what Hope means….He is now showing me daily what that means.

Hope is…holding onto the last bit of ‘thread’ you think you have, in a situation, and trusting that He’s got it all under control.

Hope is…patiently waiting for my husband’s Law School results with trust that our Father is taking care of us, no matter what!

Hope is…throwing away my ovulation kits, my apps, my pregnancy tests and giving him complete surrender…surrender to His mighty plan and hand in our life.

Hope is…having faith in family restoration, in His timing, not mine.

Hope is…rejoicing in all that He has done for me, for us, in the little things and the big things too.

Hope is ‘jumping’ into His arms and knowing I will find peace and comfort. Hope is walking through the storm ahead knowing He is with me always, His rod and staff they comfort me.  Hope is all I got these days, hope is all that I know now, without hope I wasn’t really trusting in Him completely.

Whatever your desires of your heart are. Whatever you are going through, don’t lose HOPE. It can be the only thing you have left but if you have it, don’t let go!!!! ❤

Today I celebrate the anniversary of my freedom from alcohol. The freedom from addiction that only God set me free from. ❤

Some may know my story, and some may not…I spent most of my 20’s trying to fill a void. A void that covered pain from childhood trauma. A void that never went away. I turned to drugs and alcohol in my early 20’s only to give up one for the other. My drug of choice was alcohol. I used alcohol as a means to cover up pain. As a means to give me that ‘happy, joy, joy’ feeling only for a brief moment. Me and alcohol had to break up. There was no way around it!!! The day I turned and walked away was the day that I was no longer in bondage to what held me captive for so long. The day I met my Jesus, face to face, is the day that He showed me His power!!! I no longer spend my time looking at who I was. I spend my days celebrating the new creation He has made me into.

Jesus is the reason for my JOY!

Jesus is the reason I know LOVE and LOVE knows me !!!

By the power of a Mighty God my life has been radically changed, I have been set free!!!!

I am sharing a piece of me because I know that there is POWER in your story. I am sharing with you today so that if you have a struggle, whatever it may be, you know there is a solution to your pain. I am sharing this message because life is too short and I have a story to tell and you may too.

Thank you to my family for supporting me through it all. Through the reckless phone calls at night (filled with pain), to the endless prayers you each had for me, to your unconditional love you showed for me. Thank you.

Thank you to my long time friends that saw me through the before and after. The friends that were brave enough to show me a mirror to what they were “seeing.” Thank you.

Thank you for the new friends I have created. You have shown me life after a wreckage. Especially my “moms”, you know who you are and I cherish my bridesmaids! Thank you.

Thank you to my daughter who reminds me of God’s continued faithfulness. Who has helped me find joy through her childhood. Who is the light in my days and the beat in my heart. Thank you.

Thank you to my husband. You are my biggest role model. He just celebrated 6 years sober and his life is a testimony to what lengths Jesus will go through to save a soul. He has lost many friends to addiction, too many to lose, and yet he has held onto faith stronger than any man I know. Thank you.

Thank you God for never leaving me. Thank you Jesus for your cross, your blood shed for me. Thank you is not enough words to say. Thank you.

“..The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness! ”

“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in Him.” – Lamentations 3:22-24

2015 just flew by! I really didn’t remember how it started (blame everything on mommy brain) until my blog post dinged me this morning showing my ‘year in review.’ 2015 started with my first trip to the ER with my daughter, who only had a mild cold. I  remember freaking out, not knowing what to do…Hey, it was my first time. I remember all the moms out there (well in my Facebook world) giving me advice and probably secretly laughing, reading my blog, thinking, “Oh this sweet novice she has no clue!”  It really was so minor, now that I think back to it all, but that’s how this year really went. It held so many lessons for me that I can’t help but be thankful for. They weren’t easy lessons, they still aren’t. It wasn’t like I would want to go through them again but they sure have molded me, shaken me, humbled me and helped me grow; still growing!

I am so thankful that God still loves me, that He still calls ME ‘daughter’, that He still sees me precious in His eyes! Through motherhood I have learned how little control I have, (for a control freak like me that took a lot to learn).  I have learned that without God, every morning filling up my well, I wasn’t going to be a good wife, a good mother, a good sister, a good friend…really, without God every morning …Welp, that wasn’t an option anymore! I needed Him more than I realized.

One of the greatest gifts this year, one that I am so thankful to carry on forever, is what I call the #RealHousewivesofWoodside mommy group.  But what it really stands for (that’s just my humor) is a group of devoted moms to Christ that meet monthly to discuss Woman in the Word but also our lives as mommy’s.  The group of woman at ‘our’ table we share a special bond. We may only meet monthly but we are in each other live’s daily. We support each other through the ‘godly’ stuff but also the ‘real’ stuff. That is what we all need.  I am thankful for each of them and I hope that this upcoming year you each find that support; that friendship, that sisterhood.  It is truly a priceless gift to give and receive.

Romans 1: 12 “that is, that we may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith, both yours and mine.”

2015 was filled with lessons upon lessons but filled with a lot of fun times. My hubby and I took our daughter on our first solo vacation to Florida, after months of not seeing him much due to law school, ( did I mention this is his last year!) My daughter learned to walk this year, learned to speak this year (she really is starting to talk sentences!), learned to drink from a cup all on her own..I could go on and on but it has been a year of adventures with my daughter and none of them short of amazement!! 2015. Thank you. (I have the 25467960834 Facebook photos to prove it! #sorrynotsorry)

I learned to juggle being a stay at home mom, working from home and going to school (did I mention I have grey hair now), running a household and still trying to keep it sexy for my hubby.  All you veteran moms and wives out there, I applaud you!!! This truly was a year like none other because I had to let go of my plans and fall in step with HIS plan. I had to let go of control and expectations and rely on someone bigger than myself. I had to surrender to God all the things I thought I knew only to take time to listen to what He wanted me to do. I learned to step away from all things, when life gets crazy, just to gain strength that I need to be the best wife & mommy. I had to learn to say “NO”, I had to learn it was OK to walk away from things (even just temporarily) that were clouding my vision and my walk with God. In the still and quiet moments I can Hear Him better. In the moments when I pull away, from all things earthly, it is for my own good and my own growth.

Whoever I thought I was before, got switched up on me, got twisted and shaken and molded like never before. I went through the washing machine cycle of life (yes, try to imagine that washing machine) and He rinsed me out like never before. I am so happy that He has me in the palm of His hand and that I can start learning to listen to what that means for me and my life. Obedience. That is my word for 2015. Obedience to Him and not me.

Isaiah 49:16 “See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me.”

So, 2015. Thank you. Thank you for a great year of learning more than I thought I needed to learn and I am looking forward to what 2016 brings. This morning started when my blog sent me a highlight review of 2015. The review showed me that I posted in March about losing weight on Whole30 and it got 990 views with views this year in 43 countries! It showed me that I stopped writing when I didn’t have time. It showed me that I needed to get back to writing. (It didn’t tell me that but I figured I should). Even when I think no one is listening it doesn’t matter because I love to write. Someone, somewhere may be encouraged and I have been that someone before. So here’s to sharing more of my journey through 2016 and for those of you that shared my journey in 2015 (the good, the bad, the happy, and sad) thank you!!!!

2016. I look forward to my husband finishing law school. Me graduating from school. My daughter turning 2. And all things that I can’t expect but hope for in 2016. Thank you!

With Love Always,

D

 

Psalm 16:2 “I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing.”

 

STRONG

Even when you are strong, it is OK to not be strong.

Even when you have it all together, it is OK to not have it all together.

Even when you smile often, it is OK to not smile often.

 

Sometimes life gives you times that you just need that moment to cry, to feel, to learn, to grow, to understand what God has been trying to teach you all along. In that place of weakness you will find strength. The kind of strength that comes from a God who is strong for you, who gives you peace and joy and love and wipes away those tears of pain and meets you in that place of need giving you strength you never thought you could have.

Don’t be afraid to crumble at HIS feet and leave it at the cross. Don’t be afraid to let down those walls of strength you built up to be honest and open with your heavenly Father. In those times that you are vulnerable and you become real with what you are going through, God will reach His hand out to you and pass along a strength to make it through. He is there for you and loves you because HE knows that without him we are too weak to ever be made strong.

2 Corinthians 12:10 – “Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.”

Love,

D

 

Psalm 63:6

“Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.”


 

His Love, God’s Love is better than life. When you take a moment to read this verse and reflect, like I did, it is so impactful to realize and know. Life is so great sometimes with the love we share with our loved ones or because everything is going great in all areas of our life and to think that HIS love is better than life is so wonderful. How can your lips not glorify a God that gives us love that we can’t even understand? A love that is unconditional, a love that he gave HIS son to die for our sins so that we can enjoy heaven with HIM.

Every month I like to print a verse and have it in my forefront of my daily thoughts and this is the verse I choose for March. I want to be constantly reminded to glorify HIM because of HIS great love!!!


 

When life is tough or life is great, I want to remember HIS love for me…for us.  When life is confusing or really makes sense, I want to remember HIS love for me…for us. When life gives us heartache or brings us joy, I want to remember HIS love for me…for us.  In all things big and all things small, I want to remember HIS love for me…for us.


“Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.”

 

So grateful for HIS love for me…for us!

 

Love,

D

 

 

We just arrived home from our Christmas Vacation, with smiles on our face. This marked our first family vacation with our daughter Lilyana.  Her first plane ride, her first travels, our first trip together was a success and we high five’d each other at the terminal when all 5 bags showed up in one piece — yes, we high five’d.  All was great, life was great and I had the pictures to prove it!

Now it was time to gear up for New Year’s Eve.  The planning was underway with my brother and his family, and I couldn’t wait to see them again to celebrate the close of the best year yet and the beginning of greater things to come. As most do, on the last day of the year, you reflect and you plan what the very first day of the year will bring. What the first activity will be, what the first meal will be, the first workout, the first thing you will do better or even give up this year. The list goes on and on and everyone has excitement in their life for something fresh and new … a clean slate, some say.  I was no different and little did I know that my plans would not be HIS plans and I would learn a quick lesson to start out my new year.

It was early in the morning, the first day of 2015, the New Year was here. I was feeding my daughter when I noticed she just wasn’t interested in her feeding that morning. She was lethargic and not really responsive to my interaction with her. She cuddled up on my shoulder only for me to notice she was burning up, she just felt really hot to the touch. I texted and called my sister in law and brother as they are the pros (in my mind) to ask what to do … I just started to panic. My husband and I tried calling urgent care and our child doctor and no one was open. Panic flooded my mind, my heart started beating rapidly. Was I having a panic attack while my daughter needs me? What do I do? Do I take her to the ER? Do I give her some natural oils and wait it out? Do I give her some medication to bring down the fever? HELP? I just didn’t know … the details after that were a blur until her fever spiked to a 103 in which I had my husband driving like a crazy person to the ER. By the time we got there and checked in, I was in tears… people probably thought I was the one sick and needing medical attention as my daughter was just laying in my arms. A nurse walks in and says, “Don’t you know to give her Motrin to bring her fever down? No one taught you that before?” I don’t think my response, at that moment, was very Christian like. Of course if I knew what to do, without fear of overdosing my daughter or yet making it worse I would have done it…I just wanted , I just needed, my sweet baby girl to feel better and I needed them to fix it … The doctor finally walks in, after her fever goes down and tells me she has the flu. The first day of the flu. Well, Praise Jesus that is all that it was. They proceeded to give us discharge paperwork with instructions on getting her back to health and off we were back to being parents and taking care of our Lilyana.

I felt inadequate, I felt so unsure, I felt helpless.  I forgot that God had her in HIS hands the whole time. Momma bear took over my body and all I wanted to do was care for her and get her back to happy and healthy baby. My first scare as a mommy, my daughters first illness and I totally panicked. I lost it. I physically hurt for her …. and I started to think, is this how God hurts for us. Is this how much HE loves us? Is this how HE hurts for us when we are in pain? Exhaustion set in and tears took over…

I was in the kitchen this morning with tears running down my face and totally forgetting about all the plans I had for my New Year and just started to pray anything and everything that came to mind. I prayed for my daughter, my husband, our family, our understanding, our role as parents… All the things I didn’t know about or yet have to learn about and at that moment a spirit of weariness set in, probably from the previous days event and lack of sleep and energy.

My phone beeps with a text, my friend Lisa writes me and says, ” God put it on my heart…He wanted you to be encouraged. I wanted to tell you later in the day, but He said to do it now.” I was in shock, my spirits were instantly lifted and I thanked Him for hearing my prayers. I needed to hear that at that very moment and He knew that. She continues to write…” Be encouraged in knowing that He always hears and cares immensely for you. You are the love of HIS life.”

I just started thanking him and just seeing those words gave me so much comfort. The way that He loves me, I love my daughter. The way that He loves me, he loves her too…

My daughter had her first smile today and though full recovery is not here yet she is better than before and I know that this year, more than ever, my hope will be in the Lord. This year I will make Him my first priority and I will remember what my sister in law Nicoleta told me… ” just know God loves her even more than we can and she’ll be just fine!”

My first lesson of the year wasn’t as planned but a valuable one that I will never forget…

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Be Brave“True fearlessness comes from living loved. When we find our worth and our value in Christ, then, as the Psalmist wrote, what can man do to us? I don’t think we can be a people-pleaser or an approval-addict AND be brave with our lives. Perhaps that’s why fearlessness or bravery starts with our identity first, it’s the deep well from which we draw living water, enough for today.”

 

Have you ever been in a situation that called for you to be brave? Have you ever backed down from bravery because you were afraid? Then you are not alone. We have all been there. We have all experienced being paralyzed by fear so we cannot act in bravery.  We have all failed time and time again because we didn’t think bravery existed in us.

YOU are not alone in believing you just can’t do “it”. (Whatever that “it” is in your life). I just can’t get past this addiction. I just won’t let this hatred go. I am not equipped to succeed and I’ll never be brave like he or she is… don’t let those thoughts take a hold of you and spin you around in circles. Look up to the Maker of this universe and take on the full armor of God and know that HE is giving you all the bravery that you need. He will meet you at the start, in the middle at the finish line of whatever you are facing TODAY!!!! Give it all to HIM; your fears, your doubts your second guessings, and just wait for it to be replaced with confidence, and fearlessness, and bravery…

You will fail time and time again, don’t be discouraged. You will mess up time and time again, don’t lose heart. But BE BRAVE in knowing that you can get through whatever it is you want to get through and you have Jesus holding your hand through it all. Look to him for your bravery and see valor rise up from within.

“Bravery is born in the quiet and ordinary moments long before it’s seen by anyone else. Sometimes it’s as simple and devastating as the moments no one else will ever see – the moments of daring to be honest with our own self, of laying down our excuses or justifications or disguises, of asking ourselves what we really want, of forgiveness, of honesty, of choosing the hard daily work of restoration, of staying resolutely alive when every one else is just numbing themselves against life. These are why our friends matter so deeply: they are witness to the sacred secrets. Not all secrets are terrifying things, some of them are beautiful and transformative.”

BE BRAVE TODAY- HE IS MEETING YOU IN THOSE MOMENTS!

With love,

D

Gratitude

“A grateful heart sees each day as a gift.”- Max Lucado


As we are in the season of Thanksgiving it is such a necessity to reflect on all things wonderful in our lives. The holidays, especially Thanksgiving and Christmas, have many of us feeling nostalgic of all things good in our lives.  I wish the holidays where all year round so that we can truly pause in our day, every day, and just give Praise for all the blessings that we have received. All the blessings that are undeserved but given to us as a gift; gifts to be treasured and remembered.

We all have our ups and downs. We all have our share of disappointments; of losses and of broken hearts but I have found the best way to get through all of those times is to truly “turn my eyes upon Jesus” and thank HIM. Thank Him for the trials that make me stronger, the times that make me humbled and to truly start reflecting a grateful heart. A grateful heart, a thankful heart, is the key to overwhelming joy!!!

We have hours and minutes and seconds in our day to stop and just be grateful. To stop and give thanks. Don’t let a day pass without giving thanks for all that you have, for all that you learn, for all that you may not understand.  Start practicing the heart of gratefulness, of praise, of thanksgiving and check in daily with yourself. I know that I have to and I know that I will but ask yourself TODAY, “Where is my heart?” and then continue in Praise, in Gratitude, in Thanksgiving and watch as your day changes and your heart melted with humility as God begins to make….”all things new!”


“Remind yourself daily that someone, somewhere is happy with less than you possess.”

In love always,

In the past several days, actually a lot lately, I have run into people who have been torn down by the words of others. Whose spirit have been broken by the words others chose to say.  I have been there in the shoes of brokenness when others chose to say hurtful things or opinions that only damaged my spirit. (For me it was during my pregnancy, which hurt the most.) I have also been on the other side where because I often said, “I just say it like it is, or I am just a blunt person,” that I thought I could say what I wanted, when I wanted regardless of how it affected someone else. Well I am here to say that I have grown past that attitude and urge those around me to think before they speak as well.  Are the things you are about to say uplifting to someone, edifying who they are, bringing light and joy to their day?? Or are the words you are about to speak going to affect them emotionally, mentally and sadly even physically; tearing down and breaking their heart and even affecting their soul?

“Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear”  (Ephesians 4:29)

The words you choose to say carry weight and impact others in more ways than you know. Your opinions matter and everyone has the free will to have their own opinion but sometimes we need to go back to the basics and remember that if “you have nothing nice to say don’t say nothin’ at all.”  You and we don’t know someones struggles, someones pain, someones day and when we come in blasting our words with no intent, purpose or meaning it can truly hurt the person that hears them.

Most of us have learned these basics from our mother or yet even those cartoons we used to watch growing up. But somewhere, in the beginning, we learned some of the most important basics…basics I will teach my daughter. Lets go back to those simple basics we learned and really be mindful of what we say, when we say it and how we say it and remember that your words can build up or tear down in an instant and sometimes damage others beyond repair….

“Kind words are like honey-sweet to the soul and healthy for the body” (Proverbs 16:24)

Be kind today to others and be kind today to yourself, loving others is what we are called to do.

Take me to the mountains….

October 28, 2014

Take me to the mountains, that is where I find my clarity…

Boise, Idaho

Isaiah 52:7

“How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!”

 

dawn

Do you ever catch yourself, running thoughts like a sprint racer, so early in the morning?  You think about your day… possibly yesterday and even the future. That you aren’t even thinking in the moment? Well, I always do!!!

I am a morning person, like 5am morning person and with my new daughter it’s becoming a little earlier at times, and I really don’t mind. While most people are just waking up and crawling out of bed, I am already on my third social media post of the day.   I am looking to finish the dishes, laundry, or whatever endless house stuff was left from the night before… I am finishing up my school work, and getting ready for my “day-job” as a virtual admin… I am kissing the hubby off to work, making my daughters bottles for the day and get ready to get some fitness in… all before 8am. What am I thinking?? Who does that?

Then there was that one morning. It really changed it all for me…I really do call it “that” one morning. I got my “snap out of it”…I felt a slap in the face (not literally) and a tap on my shoulder (again not literally) to stop and just be still… It is those Jesus moment’s people talk about, those Jesus moments I often have when He’s been trying to get your attention and you finally listen.

It brought me to my knees literally and I just had to start praising him and thanking him and literally asking for forgiveness for not starting my mornings out with Him. It was in that moment that I prayed for my husband, my daughter, my family, my friends, even people I may not know that need my prayer and in that moment I decided….it’s time to stop, be still and know …that HE is waiting for me first. God is waiting for me to acknowledge HIM in my mornings before I start my race.  He is waiting for you too.

“To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at the noon hour and meditate on HIS love and goodness…
To return home at eventide with gratitude; 
And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips.”

That is what I believe we are called to do first. Seek Him before we seek others in our every day.  I am guilty of it often, of seeking even myself before HIM.  I am learning to be still first and to acknowledge the day with the very creator of TODAY and to really be present in slowing down and being steady in HIS love and goodness.

I end with my own “Mornings in thought…”

Someone…somewhere …is hurting …pray for them.
Someone…somewhere…needs love…love on them.
Someone…somewhere…is crying out for help…listen to them…

In all things that we do today remember that someone, somewhere, needs you to show them the love that you have come to know. The love that surpasses all understanding. The love of Jesus Christ. Love on them and start your day out right…with HIM first!

I am overwhelmed with emotions thinking of how powerful the word HOPE has become in my life. I like picking a word of the year that I really focus on, that I really let God speak to me on, that I really use as my ‘yearly resolution.’

I was hesitant to pick “hope” for my word this year. I was hesitant because I had lost a lot of “hope” in my life, on many personal situations. I really felt like God was telling me to trust Him and to really allow Him to show me what Hope means….He is now showing me daily what that means.

Hope is…holding onto the last bit of ‘thread’ you think you have, in a situation, and trusting that He’s got it all under control.

Hope is…patiently waiting for my husband’s Law School results with trust that our Father is taking care of us, no matter what!

Hope is…throwing away my ovulation kits, my apps, my pregnancy tests and giving him complete surrender…surrender to His mighty plan and hand in our life.

Hope is…having faith in family restoration, in His timing, not mine.

Hope is…rejoicing in all that He has done for me, for us, in the little things and the big things too.

Hope is ‘jumping’ into His arms and knowing I will find peace and comfort. Hope is walking through the storm ahead knowing He is with me always, His rod and staff they comfort me.  Hope is all I got these days, hope is all that I know now, without hope I wasn’t really trusting in Him completely.

Whatever your desires of your heart are. Whatever you are going through, don’t lose HOPE. It can be the only thing you have left but if you have it, don’t let go!!!! ❤

“Relying on God has to begin all over again every day as if nothing had yet been done.”- C.S. Lewis

 

 

 

 

How do I thank you for all that you’ve done?

My Father, My King…above all in my life, YOU have won! 

My life was a mess, I didn’t know how to heal, 

You gave me such hope, such power, such LOVE; so real! 

 

You never gave up on me, when I needed you the most,

You showed your grace and mercy, forever this I will boast.

I heard words of defeat, I didn’t know if I would ‘make it’,

But, My God, My Father, YOU said the grave has been defeated!

 

4 years sober is not just my story,

I am giving my complete life to YOU for your ultimate glory!

Thank you for holding my hand every day,

Calling me your Daughter each step of the way.

 

I no longer remember the days of old, 

I share my story with others, confident and bold.

I will forever walk with you as my King,

Your Daughter, forever loved, your praises I will sing!

Love,

Your Daughter, Diana Gipe

“You have been assigned this mountain to show others it can be moved.”

There are words to a song that I love most, “When You don’t move the mountains I’m needing You to move,” they resonate with me because I often catch myself wondering why we have mountains, maybe even boulders, placed in our life and they just wont MOVE. Have you ever thought that? Have you ever questioned or asked God, “Why did you give me this ‘mountain’, this situation, this person in my life that just seems to serve no purpose or bring me any real joy? 

Then I saw the quote above and starting reflecting on being an instrument of faith and being someone that God is using to show others about His divine power to move all things bigger than any mountain. Can you imagine YOUR mountain moving? In Matthew 17:20 it says,

“..Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”

Through Christ YOU have the authority TODAY to tell your ‘mountain’ to MOVE. Whatever is hindering you from walking in freedom in Christ, whatever is holding you in chains telling you that you are paralyzed to function, whatever thoughts you replay over and over in your head that create depression or sadness or lack of self worth tell them today to MOVE!!!!! If you have faith even as “small as a mustard seed,” (which is beyond small) then you have faith for your situation to arise and when it does remember who to give the glory to!

Imagine, visualize YOUR mountain. Imagine an even bigger mountain. Now dig deep in your faith, grasp a hold of all the strength you thing is gone and shout it from the top of YOUR mountain today….

“MOVE.”
