Unshakable Assurance

ACTS Final Chapters

Good morning, good morning. I know it has been a minute since I blogged. Life has been extremely busy to say the least. There’s 2 HIGH SCHOOL graduations, calls from principals, final projects and missing assignments. There is so much good in the midst of the chaos and there are some super hard things too.


In all of it, I can say…God is so good.


While I haven’t been as good at blogging daily, I have continued to read my chapter every morning and it has been the provision I needed.


My goal today is to encourage you as I have been encouraged one chapter at a time. I do not have all the answers and I certainly do not think I’ve figured it out, but I’m so grateful for the word of God which strengthens me day by day and minute by minute. And I truly believe faith and belief is contagious. No matter what you’re walking through today I promise you this God is working in the midst of it. He is right there with you and he is your comforter.


As I’ve been reading the final chapters and acts this week I’m so thankful for Paul’s example. Whether he’s being stoned, imprisoned, misunderstood, or involved in a shipwreck he keeps sharing the gospel and of Gods goodness to us.


“He continued to proclaim to all the truths of God’s kingdom realm, teaching them about the Lord Jesus, the Anointed One, speaking triumphantly and without any restriction.”

‭‭Acts‬ ‭28‬:‭31‬ ‭TPT‬‬


I love so much how unshakable Paul has been this entire time he’s serving the Lord. I love to watch God‘s hand of provision over him the whole way. It reminds me of the promise in John:


“you’re about to make a run for it—saving your own skins and abandoning me. But I’m not abandoned. The Father is with me. I’ve told you all this so that trusting me, you will be unshakable and assured, deeply at peace. In this godless world you will continue to experience difficulties. But take heart! I’ve conquered the world.”

John 16:32-33


Lord I pray for unshakable assurance in you Father.

No matter what I may be facing may I not run from fulfilling the work you have for me.


I love Paul’s example.


Yesterday morning, I was able to attend a women’s event for a friends ‘s ministry. It was incredible. I really enjoyed hearing the testimonies and seeing the work of the ministry, including the beginning of Haiti ladies @thewell.


On our way home from this conference, I got one of the hardest phone calls. Colton’s football trainer/coach/mentor has two sons and they were both shot. The oldest one died immediately, and the other one was fighting for his life with a bullet shot to the brain.


Colton has trained with the son that was fighting for his life on multiple occasions. He plays football at Auburn. We have become very close to this family.


We spent about six hours at the hospital yesterday, encouraging, praying with, singing worship songs, shedding lots of tears and giving hugs. There were a countless number of friends and family that were coming through the hospital


I sat there processing my own rollercoaster of emotions trying to be strong as I watched the family of these boys walk through absolute terror. Grieving the death of one son and at the same time trying to stay strong for the son fighting to stay alive.


Colton is taking this very hard as he should. This is just a very ugly thing. I am reminded of all the miracles and all the ways in which God turned really ugly situations into something beautiful throughout Paul’s journey in Acts and the Gospels.


I’m really praying for the glory of God to shine mightily in the midst of something very ugly and very unimaginable. I know just as the Lord carried Paul through every kind of tragedy and persecution He is carrying the Battie family and specifically Brian.


My prayer today is for the Lord to be glorified through Brian’s recovery. I’m believing that people will come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior as they watch a community come around this family and healing begins to take place both emotionally and physically.


I’m calling on the church to come alongside this family…seems fitting and all as it’s Pentecost Sunday,

“All the believers were in fellowship as one body, and they shared with one another whatever they had. Out of generosity they even sold their assets to distribute the proceeds to those who were in need among them. Daily they met together in the temple courts and in one another’s homes to celebrate communion. They shared meals together with joyful hearts and tender humility.”

‭‭Acts‬ ‭2‬:‭44‬-‭46‬ ‭TPT‬‬


Some believe the church to be a building and the people that attend a certain location. I truly believe the church is a group of believers who come around one another, especially in times of hardship.


We are speaking and believing today with one touch of the father’s hand Brian will make a full recovery ❤️‍🩹 we are praying for incredible encouragement and comfort for his family, his two sisters and his mom and dad. The tole that this is taking mentally, emotionally and financially is great.


Join us in praying for this family and supporting them financially as you can.
