Oh It’s Christmas – ⭐️

Facts of the greatest story ever told.

Mary a young virgin was told by an angel that she will give birth to the Messiah and His name will be called Jesus.

Today, we still refer to Him as the “Wonderful Counselor,” “The Mighty God,” “The Everlasting Father,” and “The Prince of Peace.”

We will never know the exact time, day of the week, or even the year the Messiah Jesus was born, but one thing we cannot deny is that He was born with a Divine purpose. Every birth deserves a celebration…and I’m here for it.

The Three Kings bought Him gold, frankincense, and myrrh as gifts. And as for me … Well, I gave Him my heart. Falling in love with Jesus remains the best decision I have ever made and the rest is MY STORY.

Prayer Time:
Lord, in a season when every heart should be happy and light, many are struggling with the heaviness of life. Problems that steal the joy right out of the Christmas spirit.

Crazy weather, disaster, and unimaginable fears have gripped hearts, robbing them of what really matters. Thank you for being the Prince of Peace that brings perfect peace in the midst of chaos that surpasses our understanding.

May that inner voice whisper to us, “Be NOT afraid!” In Jesus Name, Amen

In closing: We all need a Physician to heal us mentally, physically, and emotionally.

It does not matter what race Jesus is … or what day He was born etc … all I know is, we all need Jesus the Physician, the Wonderful Counselor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, and the Prince of peace to be present in our homes, hearts, and as we go to and fro throughout the world.

Thursday Morning Conversation with June Doyle

God’s willing hopefully we will be leaving 2022 pregnant with our due date set in 30 days. Adulting means it’s time for a reflection.

Time of Reflections: Not all our family and friends made it to see today. We pushed through the pain of loss and grief hoping that time will heal our pain. This year was difficult for everyone but whatever came our way … we managed to keep it together.

Questions to Ponder: What has life taught you, and what adjustments are you willing to make with a new year untouched by human hands? No mistakes yet. No regrets yet.

We may not always be able to choose what challenges we may face in 2023, but based on the reflections of last year’s experiences … what lessons were learned and how would you respond knowing what you know now?

If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be? Are you listening to your heart? Deep inside, are you ready to give up the things that are weighing you down?

Be confident of this one thing – The Lord your God goes before you into 2023, and He does not grow tired or weary, and will give you strength when you get weary and weak. The Bible says, ‘Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
Isaiah 40:26, 28-31 NIVUK

Faith in God is like the muscles in our bodies, if we don’t use it, we will lose it. Faith must be tested to grow. Take heart. Whatever lies ahead, be confident that they are divine opportunities to strengthen your confidence in God.

It’s okay to tell God about your anxious thoughts. But at the end of the day, you say, ‘Father, I look to you.’ In quietness and confidence will be your strength.

God will do things in you and for you that you never thought was possible. You don’t need to have all the information about 2023, you just have to trust that God is going before you, with you and will stay with you to the end.

WEDNESDAY Morning Conversation with June Doyle

It can be frustrating when you see other people doing well while you’re struggling to make ends meet. What do you do when there’s nothing left to do?

Let me share with you my mother’s faith story through my eyes. My parents were married and together they had 11 children, however, it was my mom who left a lasting impression on our lives with her unshakable faith. She was a strong woman who didn’t bow to the pressure easily because she believed God will always be there to help her.

Everyone knows that raising 11 children in the early 40’s and late 50’s was no easy task, but I never once heard my mom complain about how difficult life was. She divided her love among 11 children and each child had all her love.

Her mustard seed of faith kept us alive, fed, healthy, happy and properly clothed. Every morning she gathered her children around her feet, read the Bible, then each one had a turn to pray before our day got started.

My mom’s running mate was God. I never saw my mom hold her head down in defeat. Instead, her voice could be heard throughout the house singing the old hymns as she stirred the pots minus meat during the week 🤷🏽‍♀️. Only on Sundays, the meat miraculously appeared on the plates 😂

My mom raised strong, well-rounded children, and did everything to make sure we grew up into good human beings. Even if she was fighting her own battles and exhausted both mentally and physically, nothing stopped her from finding the strength to do whatever needed to be done for her children.

My takeaway: When the world is complaining about the economy, don’t join the chorus. Instead, have crazy faith and make God your running mate, and don’t forget to keep your praises up 🎶

Don’t send your children out into the world unprepared. Send them out with your love, your prayers, and the assurance that you will always be there when they need you.

Strong mothers raise strong children.

Tuesday Morning Conversation with June Doyle

If you’re repeatedly working from early morning to late night, you will suffer from burn out becoming easily agitated, anxious, avoiding humans, and depressed.

Stress leaves everyone emotionally and physically drained. Satan’s most common tactics are to keep you handcuffed to your job and too busy to spend quality time with your family and friends.

It should be of no surprise that God did not design our bodies to function like that because He Himself rested on the 7th day. Rest and enjoying family’s mealtimes are important to living a balanced lifestyle.

Take your family to the beach. Hang out with your friends at the lake and eat that cookie and cream dessert. Go on a road trip. Have clean fun. Laugh loud. Eat at your favourite restaurant. Dip in the pool, then make sure you get rest.

Life goes by quickly and who will inherit and enjoy those things you have deprived yourself of. Start somewhere. Just start. To live better, you’ve got to get better at doing what’s right.

Many sick people just need to eat well, spend quality time with family and friends, and get lots of rest. You can heal yourself.

“Then Naaman went down and dipped seven times in the Jordan, according to the saying of the man of God; and his flesh was restored like the flesh of a little child, and he was clean.”
‭‭II Kings‬ ‭5‬:‭9‬-‭11‬, ‭14‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Monday Morning Conversation with June Doyle

Your faith will be the reason why your entire family gets blessed.

When you begin to say no to ungodly vows, impulses, lust, pride, envy, and the little sins we often tend to overlook, you will gain the strength to break the cycle of generational curses. Be the person who breaks the cycle. Your faith will be the reason why your entire family gets blessed.

Don’t tell God how big your problems are, tell your problems how big your God is. It’s all about perspective. You don’t have to figure your whole life out in one night. Fear not. Your need will never exceed God’s provision. You are learning new ways to create a different lifestyle where God will always be your Provider. Your faith will be the reason why your entire family.

Trust God when the sun is shining. Trust God when there’s rain. You will never be alone. Keep leaning on God’s everlasting arms and He will direct your path. You may never get all the answers, but your faith in God will never make you feel abandoned. Your faith will be the reason why your entire family gets blessed.

Everyone who walks with God reaches their destination. Do it for you. Do it for your family. Your faith will be the reason why your entire family gets blessed.

‘People inspire you, or they drain you. Pick them wisely.’

“Do a favor and win a friend forever; nothing can untie that bond.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭18‬:‭19‬ ‭MSG‬‬

You don’t have to have it all figured out right away to walk in faith. Find friends who will sit with you and say, “Let’s have faith” instead of sitting and crying with you.

If the conversations in your circle are not deep after joking around and having fun … then maturity is absent. The older you get …. stay close to those who can joke around and then have some deep conversations.

Adult friendship says, ‘Let me call you right back’ … then 3, 4, 5 days past and no one takes it personally. They are low maintenance people that you can’t afford to lose.

Friends are the people who laugh louder than you, know that you are not perfect but still manages to make you feel perfect. They are like gold. Choose quality over quantity anytime.

“If you insult a relative, it will be difficult to become friends with him again. Arguments keep people apart, like the walls of a strong city.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭18‬:‭19‬ ‭EASY‬‬

Be friends with those who will sit with you and say, ‘Let’s fix this’ instead of being a child and ignoring you. Shoutout to the friends that want to see you do well.

Be yourself and the right people will love you. “Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit—you choose.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭18‬:‭21‬ ‭MSG‬‬

“Friends come and friends go, but a true friend sticks by you like family.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭18‬:‭24‬ ‭MSG‬‬

WEDNESDAY CONVERSATION with June Doyle

What makes the Devil tremble? Christians on their knees praying. Someone said, ‘Satan laughs at our words but trembles when we pray.’

Prayers memorized from the head and not spoken from the heart don’t connect with God. Prayer is simply a conversation between you and God where everyone is welcome to the table.

🙏🏾 “Our Father in heaven, hallowed by your name, your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.’

“And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. I tell you the truth, they have their reward in full.

🙏🏾 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”

Some folks sincerely believe that if they say, ‘I’m covered with the blood of Jesus and no weapon formed against me shall prosper’ without praying about it – it will work like magic. That sounds more like a pep-talk to me.

It will be foolish for me to stand on a busy six lane highway with a megaphone in my hand shouting to the top of my lungs, ‘ I’m covered with the blood of Jesus and no weapon formed against me shall prosper’ and not expect to be hit by speedy cars ultimately leading to my untimely death.

That will be erratic behaviour that does not get God’s attention.

One day Satan mockingly tells Jesus, “If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down; for it is written, ‘He will command His angels concerning You and ‘They will lift you up on their hands, So that You will not strike Your foot against a stone.’ ”

👉🏾 Jesus said to him, “On the other hand Satan, it is written and forever remains written, ‘You shall not test the Lord your God.’ ”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭4‬:‭6‬-‭7‬ ‭AMP‬‬

To test God is to say, “A loving God would never allow evil to be formed against me” while living a prayer-less life.

🙏🏾 Without a doubt, God remains faithful in keeping His promises, according to scripture. But if we try to manipulate God while putting ourselves in situations and testing God to keep His word, then this is mockery.

God will not be mocked. Satan laughs at our words but trembles when we kneel in prayer.

CONVERSATIONS with JUNE DOYLE

Faith does not change your situation. Faith changes the way you see your situation.

Mountains never changes its size, but the moment you think you can’t climb the mountain but you keep climbing anyway despite the fear is when you realize there’s no mountain high enough to keep you back from getting to the top.

Whatever happens in life, in the high moments or the lows, God is always there for those who keep pushing hard to get to the next level of victory. Will it be easy? Maybe not, but I guarantee you it will be worth the climb.

God takes care of all the unforeseen stuff when there’s no trust issues between you and Him.

Jesus told His disciples, “You don’t have enough faith,” I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.””
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭17‬:‭20‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Do not turn your religious beliefs into a circus to entertain the naysayers. If you have small faith or big faith God will make you strong in your spirit to climb to the top of the mountain of your current situation.

God will take you through stuff that you don’t even understand just to bring you to the place where He needs you to be to show Himself strong on your behalf.

You can’t walk in victory with someone who spreads fear, or needlessly raises the alarm.

Satan is such a schemer that he will fight you over the things you can’t see on the mountain top just to keep you from reaching the top.

The next time Satan reminds you of your slips and falls, remind him of the countless times you got back up and kept on running.

Be careful who you entertain and who entertains you. You’ve got mountains to climb my friends. Let’s make JESUS great again!
