Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer and Reflection for 6.30.11

The angel of the lord appeared to her and said, “You are barren and childless, but you are going to become pregnant and give birth to a son. The angel of the lord appeared to her and said, “You are barren and childless, but you are going to become pregnant and give birth to a son. Now see to it that you drink no wine or other fermented drink and that you do not eat anything unclean. You will become pregnant and have a son whose head is never to be touched by a razor because the boy is to be a Nazirite, dedicated to God from the womb. He will take the lead in delivering Israel from the hands of the Philistines.”

Judges 13:2-5

Pray
Father thank You for making a way out of no way; for making the impossible possible, the crooked straight, and bringing Light to darkness. I love You Lord and know that You will always make things right in my life, deliver me from bad situations, and direct my path even when I stray. Thank You Father.

Reflection
There’s nothing God can’t do for you, through you, and to you. Believe and have faith. That barren woman gave birth to a son, Samson, and he did exactly what God’s angel said he would.

Are you listening for God’s voice? Are you paying attention to the angels around you who are trying to guide you?

That faint voice in your head sharing words of encouragement and enlightenment, declarations of a successful future are not your mortal thoughts or imagination, but rather God planting spiritual seeds and outlining your road map. Tune in and stay connected!

Love,

Natasha

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer and Reflection for 6.29.11

You women who are so complacent, rise up and listen to me; you daughters who feel secure, hear what I have to say!

Isaiah 32:9

Pray
Father I know that You don’t approve of laziness, complacency, and contentment with the status quo of the world. I never want to be satisfied with mediocrity, with doing what others are doing, or being comfortable with someone else taking care of me or making decisions on my behalf. I want to always be standing, moving, thinking, and doing my best to live life as You expect of me. Thank You Father for instilling that passion and purpose in my life. I love You. Amen.

Reflection
Every day we should have an action plan for doing something different in our lives, for taking the next step towards greatness; and never content with simply getting by…’easy’ should never be our goal and motivation. Let’s strive for being better than average, since God is no average god; He is the ultimate, all-knowing, all-seeing, all-powerful, being everywhere and everything to all creatures…God. As His reflection we cannot walk with lower expectations of ourselves or those who we associate with. Step up, show up, and show who you really are as a child of our heavenly Father-Mother.

Love you all,

Natasha

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer and Reflection for 6.28.11

It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

1 Corinthians 13:7

Pray
Father You are love, happiness, joy, kindness, care, hope, Spirit, Soul, Mind; You are all-in-all. Everything that is good is of You. Father in and through Your love I am always protected; I can trust in You and have faith that no harm will come to me of Your doing. In Your love I have hope; hope for a better life, a better experience, and better opportunities. In Your love I can and will persevere, thrive, and succeed.

Father thank You for the guardian angels You have placed around me throughout my years, and for those who will guide me along my path during my remaining years. I pray for the opportunity to see, experience, and demonstrate love in its purest form as You have shared with me. I want to share this love with generations yet born so that they may enter this world having faith in mankind, and in their ability to serve as honorable stewards in Your Kingdom.

Thank You Father for protecting me. Thank You Father from keeping those who would harm me in their fear, arrogance, carelessness, self-centeredness, and disobedience from doing so. Thank You for the wisdom and discernment to identify those people who are with me and those who are against me, those who love and respect me versus those who don’t; and that I might still love them all as Your son Jesus loves me.

In Your name I pray. Amen.

Reflection
Love protects always, love trusts always, love hopes always, and love always perseveres. To be protected by man you must be a protector. To be trusted by man you must be trustworthy. For hope and perseverance to remain constant in your relationship you must believe in them, work daily and throughout to secure a confidence in hope and wanting more and better for your relationship; and you must be willing to do anything and everything cloaked in love to protect your relationship- never doing or saying anything that would bring harm and dishonor to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and his and our Heavenly Father-Mother God.

We must make a conscience effort throughout the day to think, speak, act, and be as God expects, envisions, and knows of us as His children. We must overcome our fears, temptations, doubt, pride, and ego. We must live for more than ourselves, and give more than we could ever imagine, and still realize that we have not done, given, expressed, or shared as much as Jesus, Moses, Joshua, Daniel, or others before us individually.

We must get past our perceived humanness and embrace, and demonstrate our spiritualness. How beautiful this world would be if we could only get past ourselves and focus on love, commitment, sacrifice, forgiveness, honesty, trust, kindness, and doing God’s work.

Smile. Your day is waiting for you. Who can you bless today?

Love always,

Natasha

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer and Reflection for 6.24.11

And again, “I will put my trust in him.”
And again he says, “Here am I, and the children God has given me.” Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil—and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.

Hebrews 2:13-15

Pray
Father Your son Jesus was sent by You to show us the way to You, to salvation, to eternal peace, love, joy, and happiness. Jesus is the wayshower to the truth that we are spiritual beings in Your likeness here to have a human experience to prove that we are worthy of bigger and better responsibilities in Your Kingdom; and that with You there is no such thing as sickness or death.

This is only one level of existence for us Father and I want to learn my lessons, express Your loving grace, and love Your children as You and Your son have loved me. I want a life where I overcome fear and understand its nothingness, so that I might experience life as You intend. I seek Your guidance through Your son. I look for Your beacon of light and I promise to follow obediently the path You place before me. Humbly I say thank You. Amen.

Reflection
We can live in fear and doubt, or walk in strength and courage. We can run scared and hide from the demons that chase us, or face them down and say, “you are nothing, mean nothing, and have no power over me”. We can say we want to be more like Jesus, or each day we can work and strive to be more like him in thought, action, and deed.

Will the one we choose today be the one we embrace tomorrow? Amazingly God loves us either way, He still loves us when we waver, when we get scared, and when we run and hide. Lovingly He waits for us as our patient and nurturing Father-Mother. God is awesome. He is good. He is life, truth, love and is the Father of all mankind, and creator of all life. Thank Him today for your blessings, and then go be a blessing to others. I love you all.

Love,

Natasha

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer and Reflection for 6.23.11

A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.

Proverbs 22:1

Pray
Father it is more important to me to maintain my self-respect, dignity, and honor, and not disappoint You and my family here on earth, than to accumulate money and power that can quickly dissolve and leave me broke and alone. Father I want to make sure I leave this earth with my name in good standing, with the confidence that I did my best to serve the least of Your children, and that I gave my all in everything I did.

Father, I want to live my life as You so instruct and desire. I want to express the qualities that best reflect You and how You see me. When I stray from Your path, please redirect me either firmly or soft as You see fit, so that I can regain focus on Your mission and my purpose in life and in Your kingdom. In Your name I humbly pray. Amen.

Reflection
What do you value more in your life, material wealth and possessions? Or spiritual wealth and eternal life with our heavenly Father? Does it matter that people think you’re a jerk but hang around you because you have (or will have) fame and riches (because they want to get their hands on some)? Or are you more moved by doing good and living well because you gave of yourself when you were least expected to do so?

How much of your time do you volunteer to help others who are least fortunate? I’m not talking about what you do for your job/career to help the underserved and underrepresented in poor communities, I’m talking about what do you do in your free time (and how much time are you freeing up) to go and serve others as God has commanded us?

Even if you are financially ‘poor’ are you also too spiritually bankrupt to help those who have it worse off than you? Can you not give 1-2 hours a week or month to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, educate the ignorant, enlighten those with blinders, and empower the powerless?

What you do to serve others as God’s servant is what marks you in history books, ours and most importantly, His. You can’t take your financial wealth with you, and it may not survive long after you’re gone, but your name and reputation will last lifetimes. What will be etched into your grave’s headstone?

Lovingly,

Natasha

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer and Reflection for 6.22.11

In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.

Ephesians 3:12

Pray
Father I want to thank You for my life, my blessings, my gifts, and for the opportunities that You place before me daily. I thank You for allowing me to have a close and personal relationship with You where I don’t need an intermediary, or representative to speak on my behalf. I can come directly to You and speak with You, and have my questions answered, and problems solved because of my belief and faith in You and Your works.
Thank You Father.

Reflection
Only in our relationship with God can we be guaranteed confidentiality, a commitment to solving issues and righting wrongs, and a love like no other- pure, carefree, and beautiful. Thank Him. Embrace Him. Believe in Him. Have faith in Him that every issue, problem, desire, and need can and will be fulfilled through and by Him.

Lovingly,

Natasha

The lord bless you and keep you;

Numbers 6:24

Pray
Father thank You for my countless blessings. Thank You for protecting me and calming my fears in times of trouble or when I was clueless of the outcome. Father thank You for bringing me peace, calm, and moments of reflection during and after life’s storms. In Your name I pray. Amen.

Reflection
The Lord our Father-Mother is always there for us, keeping watch over you. In good times and in bad be grateful for God and the blessings that He brings; be grateful for each day you’re alive. And if you have vision to read this message- be grateful for sight and for each sunset and sunrise you are blessed to view if you so choose. Life is great.

Love,

Natasha
