Beautiful Signs


A fiery walk in the city was halted by a beautiful sign. I observed that my soul was still mending. Thoughts teetered between faith and vexation. Healing is a process. Though we hope for speed through painful areas, God knows the real timetable.

In the middle of complaining, the Holy Spirit G-checked my thoughts. I’m grateful that love makes room for life. To be transparent, a brief moment of doubt and fear created space for intrusive thoughts to fester. Within seconds, memories of dishonor, betrayals, rejections and folk that kicked me when I was down emerged and enraged me.

Impatience while rebuilding can cause us to look at the distance between our goals instead of God’s presence, healing, mercy and kindness. I quickly forgot that every experience on my mind at that moment was given to the LORD and forgiven long ago. It was a trick that had nothing to do with people and everything to do with “other” influences attempting to manipulate my emotions. 🤨😒 #bye.


Doubt and fear has a funny way masking itself. Thankfully, we are not alone on this walk. The Holy Spirit is a true teacher, Comforter and GPS through this life. The door sign was a call to truth, transparency, observation and release. It was an invitation to intimacy and prayer.

It was time to be honest about what I really feared in relationship with God to God directly. It was time to humbly ask for “His strength to be made perfect in my weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9) 👀in Jesus name.


Anger is often symptomatic of fear. Exasperation is often indicative of feigning of faith. Intrusive thoughts are sent to provoke feelings of rage, blame, defensiveness, vengeance or sadness; all to sabotage the present moment.

The beautiful sign the Holy Spirit graced me to see that day exposed subtle behaviors of dark assignments. It revealed agendas purposed to “steal” God’s glory, praise and gratitude along with our time, peace and joy. It taught that unsettling feelings arise to distract and disarm us.


Our enemy’s motive is to “kill” hope, momentum, motivation and confidence. Unpleasant experiences are missioned to “destroy” faith, sound perception and discernment. The good news is that Jesus came so that we “may have life more abundantly(John 10:10). Jesus gives us power over these things (Luke 10:19). The doors He opens, “no man can shut” (Revelations 3:8) ! Belief activates the blessing (Matthew 8:13), God can heal unbelief (Mark 18:23-25).

We have free will and power to choose life. Nothing is permitted without permission. We have authority to renounce and refuse anything opposing the Lord’s promise. Jesus said “ask and it shall be given, seek and ye shall find, knock and the door shall be opened unto you” (Matthew 7:7-8).

I’m learning to bring everything to the throne of grace. Though weapons form, it won’t prosper in God’s presence. Nothing can escape God’s hand or sight. God is doing “a new thing”. The enemy uses old and familiar things.

Unmanaged triggers can be easily manipulated. May our souls remember that “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High God shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty…” (Psalm 91:1-3). Don’t “get got” out here! God is for us.

This “Lesson On The Glow Up” taught that if we’ve already surrendered past pain to God, it has no place in the present. It takes conscious effort to remember that God is doing a new thing! God is faithful and more than able to make and keep us whole.

1. In every day life, God rescues us from darkness no one sees.

2. When our minds are busy with unfruitful things, in love, the Holy Spirit reveals wisdom, truth, signs and wonders.

3. God is faithful and good. He will not leave us hanging.

4. Meditation on pain can cause us to relive things that are no longer happening. Isaiah 61:3 is a sure promise to replace those thoughts with . Be expectant.

5. “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise” (Psalm 51:17). Tell God the truth when things look “sus”. He will “never leave us nor forsake us” (Hebrews 13:5-6).

6. Remind triggers “I already forgave _________ and gave it to God, “now go on, get…”!

7. What others do or say has nothing to do with you. Resentment is an inner prison. In the voice of Elsa, “ Let it go, let it goooo…” 🎶

8. Remember what’s good, just, pure, honest, lovely and of good report. – Philippians 4:8


Isaiah 54:17, Ephesians 6:12, Psalm 51:17, Ephesians 3:20, Psalm 46:1, Lamentations 3:22-23, Philippians 4:8, Isaiah 61:3, Isaiah 43:19, John 10:10, Matthew 7:7-8, 2 Corinthians 12:9, Revelations 3:8, Hebrews 13:5-6. Psalm 91:1-3, Romans 8:31, Luke 10:19. Matthew 8:13, Mark 18:23-25.


May God heal and restore every broken place. May we see the good in now and trust him to handle what we cannot explain or understand. May we daily “enter into his gates with thanksgiving”. May our joy and peace be full according to the promises of God. In Jesus name, Amen.
