Short Takes…

Pray

Dear Prayer Warriors,

For those of you who are not on certain Social Media sites, I publish “Short Takes” every day.   Below are the takes for last week.  Also are included links to short posts “From the Archives of Esther’s Warriors Ministry.”   I pray they bless you  and keep you striving toward a full Kingdom walk ‘for such a time as this!’

God Bless,

 Michele

Daily Inspiration-What Troubles You?

Troubled by something?  Run it past these criteria:

1) Would you feel comfortable discussing it with Jesus?  If not, decide to let it go.  Often, we ruminate over very inconsequential issues in the scheme of all things.   Therefore, they are probably not things you would even want to share with the Lord.  He knows anyway.

2) Does this issue have any eternal implications?   If not, walk away.  Release it.  It is not worth your time, energy, or potential anxiety.  Perhaps this is just a refining moment to grow you and move you forward.  How you handle a situation will have

Daily Inspiration-“All About You?”

Some people really believe it is “all about them.”  No matter what happens they see it as an attack against them personally by anyone they encounter.  Paranoia strikes deep.  It is from a fractured heart to be sure.   And, it is always a heart issue!

Life is simply a series of events.  Do you see your life events as “all about you?”  Unless you are an undercover agent sought after by many (even then), it is not “all about you.”

Step outside of yourself.  Soften your heart with the compassion of Christ for others.  Broaden your view.

When so focused

‘Pray the States!’

In Esther’s Warriors Ministry, we began in 2012 ‘praying the states’ for healing for our Nation.   Queen Esther went before the king to intercede for her people.    We go before the King to intercede for our Nation ‘for such a time as this’ (Esther 4:14).  We pray for each state in the order of admission to the Union and will continue.  Our Nation more than ever needs consistent, diligent prayer cover state by state.

Daily Inspiration-Choose Your Confidants Wisely!

Be careful with whom you share your concerns.  Most people will just use your struggles to gossip about you.  Use discernment.  If they talk to you about others, they will talk to others about you. 

Choose your confidants wisely!

For it is written:

“The righteous should choose his friends carefully, for the way of the wicked leads them astray.”

Proverbs 12:26

Daily Inspiration-How Is Your Thought Pattern?

Do you ever find yourself in a situation that leads you to spiral down a negative path in your mind?  Do your thoughts swirl so swiftly that you can relate to the term, “head spinning?”  You may even find yourself directing all your undesirable energy toward a person whom you feel to be responsible for the situation or irresponsible in their part in it.  Often, this can lead to full blown anxiety.

Does any of this sound familiar?  I know that I can quite easily go down a path of rumination at such a rapid pace that I am not

Daily Inspiration-Turn It Off!

When sharing a meal with someone, turn off your phone.  They are sharing minutes of their life with you…minutes they can never get back.  Honor that gift with your presence.

To be present in the moment is to be open to let the Lord work through you all and edify, encourage and grow each through conversation and companionship.

Too often I observe people in restaurants so engrossed in their cell phones that they never even acknowledge those at the table.   Entire families sit at their tables, each on their phone. It would be cheaper to stay home and ignore each

Daily Inspiration-The Challenge of Respect…

We are each unique.  Choose to respect each other’s individuality. Do not attack someone simply because they do not speak, dress, or look just like you.  Respect their individuality as you would want them to respect yours.

 Challenge yourself to stay on the narrow road of integrity.   Challenge yourself to take the high road with every opportunity.  Stay focused on what God has for you and where He is leading you rather than looking at and judging another.   As much as possible, live in peace with one another.

For it is written:

 “Judge not, and you shall not be judged.
