My sister, you don’t have to stay there.

“Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead.” Philippians 3:13

My sister, everybody gets hurt, but we don’t have to stay hurt. Everybody gets mad and frustrated, but we don’t have to stay mad and frustrated. Everybody gets sad and depressed sometimes, but we don’t have to stay sad and depressed. Everybody gets tired and weary, but we don’t have to stay tired and weary. Because Jesus understands every single thing we go through and feel, He’s able to meet us right where we are. Because He is a resurrected Savior, He can help lift us up by His power so we don’t stay where we are. My sister, all of the feelings and emotions you are experiencing right now are a natural part of life, but you don’t have to stay there. The Lord will pull you out of your feelings and He will heal your emotions. He will help you to stand and will help you continue to move forward and persevere by faith.

Prayer: Father, I thank you for ministering to my heart and mind. Thank you for meeting me right where I am and for helping me not stay where I am. I receive your help and I receive your strength to get up and move from this place. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

    1. Praise God for the godly influence of mums on their children. I pray you continue to be strengthened by God’s mighty loving hand. Angelita, you and your family are in my prayers.

    2. Angelita. Amen praise God. Keep your mind fixed on Jesus. Remember Peter when he was in the boat during the storm? Jesus called him out of the boat and said. Peter come to me he stepped out of the boat and walked on water he kept his eyes fixed on Jesus not on his Circumstances or problems. Ephesians 6:10-20. God has gave me a reminder of this a lot. Stay focus on Jesus. πŸ¦‹Your doing great πŸ¦‹ We can learn πŸ€”a great deal from Peter😊

    3. Thank you Ladies for your prayes.My prayers for all of you that through it all we are not alone.We may not see in person but in spirit how each of us are able to relate and understand one another and to just encourage and lift each other up with words of knowledge,love,hope,and strength!!!God Be with You All..Amen

    6. Praise GOD Mijha, I know it’s hard sometimes to see our loved ones go through hurt and pain and the only thing we can do is stand still. Trust GOD for this pandemic DID NOT catch HIM by surprise! Know that your Mom is in the greatest hands that one could ever be held by. I pray for a speedy recovery for your Mom and for you and your sister to come together on one accord in the name of JESUS for this too shall pass!

    7. Stay encouraged, and remember your mama’s teachings when the road gets tough β€œLet go and let God”. As my pastor says β€œhe’s still in the healing business”. Blessings my sista

    8. Wow that is a wonderful testimony, my sister, let go , let God, has been one of my most powerful verses in my struggles, may you find rest in Jesus!

    1. I am amazed, Truly in awe this word was spoken directly to me!, Wow Thank you Dotk for your obedience to the leading of the Holy Spirit!, I Love my LORD and Savoir JESUS CHRIST and i thank GOD for you. I lost my job last week and was feeling low even prior to loosing my job i was emotional every day because i wasn’t happy there anyway so just tierd, drained, sad and depressed!, reading this devotional put a lil pep back in my step and gives me hope letting me know that GOD has been hearing my prayers loves me and definitely has plans for my life. Thank you, To GOD be the glory

      1. Firstly I TRULY wanted to say a SINCERE THANK YOU TO Sister Keisha for this AMAZING MINISTRY. GOD IS SO GOOD!! I stumbled across DOTK about a year & a half ago, while going through one of lowest point in my life. Was terribly
        sick with chronic gastritis for about 5 years. It was BAD y’ll !! Depression, anxiety, pain, fear. Although married I was still alone …BUT GOD SAVED ME EVEN & ESPECIALLY WHEN I COULDN’T FIGHT!!.When my daughter was around 3 at times she would wipe my tears in the mornings while getting her ready for school & put her little hands on my tummy & say “God make mommy tummy better, Jesus Amen” .Through tears I would smile to be brave for her. When I was finally on the road to recovery. Then comes DIVORCE! I was still going through divorce when I started reading DOTK. Like all of us commenting . Your words Sis Keisha spoke & ministered to me, at times it was the only thing through God that gave me comfort. On a level that made me feel like I’m not alone( even though that’s how I feel). I’m an only child, my mom lives another country. So I feel like I’m carrying this all on my own. Although I wasn’t happy in my marriage. I was scared & still am to stand on my own. I sometimes feel like David & goliath. My (soon to be ex husband’s ) a police officer & at times it feels like he has the law on his side. He cheats, he demeans,he divorces & he get a free lawyer, while I’m in debt paying for one. I often struggle with how UNFAIR life can be at times!! BUT GOD!! As a result of this corona virus like so many of us world wide I’m not working (more debt). Alicia your post struck me & for some reason & encouraged me to share a snit bit of my journey thank you for your bravery & honesty. I will keep both you, Angelita & her mom in prayer πŸ™πŸΌ…I have a lot of uncertainty & have no clue where or how to rebuild my life having to start over @ 43…but I know God is ABLE TO DELIVER & SUPPLY ALL MY NEEDS ACCORDING TO HIS RICHES IN GLORY AS HE SAID IN HIS WORD!…I am truly GRATEFUL for ENCOURAGEMENT FROM WOMEN OF GOD! May God continually Bless each & every one of you & TOUCH YOU ALL IN HIS LOVING KINDNESS, TENDER MERCY, GRACE & FAVOR!
        WE ARE ALL DAUGHTERS OF THE KING OF THE MOST HIGH!…I know that this too shall pass πŸ™πŸΌ. I praise God in advance & claim the VICTORY & what he’s about to do in our lives! BUT GOD!! HALLELUJAH!
        I WON’T STAY THERE. GOD WILL GIVE ME THE STRENGTH I NEED TO PERSEVERE & PRESS ON !
        Peace ❀❀❀❀❀❀❀ & blessings to all.

        1. Stay encouraged my sister, that’s 90% of the battle. God has you and your situation in His hands. Be blessed! ❀

        2. This is painful & encouraging. But for me, I just started like as in few minutes ago to read such inspirational stories through the power of God.

          I’m from South Africa. At the young age I am. I am grateful God chose me & showed me this platform of women across the world.

  2. THANK YOU LORD for reminding me that I don’t have to stay here. That with your help I can press forward towards the mark of my high calling ❣️
