The Gospel -- What is it?
What Do We Do About Halloween?

But Will His Grace Cover....Me?

Hey SUM Family, Tiffany Here! KC couple photo

I was reluctant to share this with you today; however, I hope to bring encouragement to those who may be struggling as well.

I love my husband. I love my marriage. I love my SUM life. I am truly blessed!

I had lunch with someone recently who I met a couple of years ago when I was taking supernatural ministry classes in town.

When asked if my husband could meet with us - I kind of froze. I got really nervous and began to stumble with my words.

I didn't realize until that moment that I still have some issues with embarrassment.

The issue that I have isn't really about Jason. It is the fear of man and a religious spirit.

I am not embarrassed to be with my husband. He is handsome. He is sweet and compassionate. He is wise and strong.

However, I am worried about what people in the church may think when I talk about my marriage. Will they be judgmental? Will they think less of me? Will they doubt the gifts and authority that God has given me? Will they think I am living in sin?

Time and again this past week I have heard from people in a sweet reminder - 

Tiffany, you are free. Do not bind yourself into slavery. You are blessed. God did not give you a spirit of fear. You are doing a great job as a wife and mother.

All this to say, I understand how you may feel. I hear the whispering lies in my ears too. Just know that God is not surprised by your marriage. He isn't disappointed. He isn't angry. He isn't ashamed. He isn't embarrassed. And you shouldn't be either.

 For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace. - Romans 6:14

For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband; otherwise your children would be unclean, but now they are holy. - 1 Corinthians 7:14

 I will deliver you from the Jewish people, as well as from the Gentiles, to whom I now send you, to open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me.’ - Acts 26:17-18

And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, - Acts 17:26

When the lies come flooding in; when insecurities rage; when someone speaks contrary to God's word - remember that you do not live under the law but under grace.

Hold on to the words that the Lord has spoken over you, your spouse and your marriage.

Please be in prayer for me as I allow Holy Spirit to rout out some deep seeded things. My prayer continues to be, "Lord, these things need to die in me. I have to let everything go that hinders my purpose and destiny."

Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, - Hebrews 12:1

Let us come together and pray for one another. What weight do you need to let go of? What needs can we pray for you?

Love and blessings. See you in the comments.
