July Monthly BlogWritten By Anne Ballard | Jun 30, 2020
In the month of July, there is grace to lay down your agenda and fully trust in God’s timing. So many have grown frustrated, waiting on the promises of God, deciding it best to take matters into their own hands. But it is the goodness of God to reveal only portions of our future to us so that we grow in partnership with Him. This month, God is graciously giving out reminders that He hasn’t forgotten about the dreams in your heart. Instead of growing weary waiting on your promises, there is a call for you to stand in faith for God’s perfect timing. God is also reminding us of who He says we are. In the space where He breathes identity into us, shame will attempt to fill you with its condemning nature. The spirit of shame will claim to be a helpful strategy, but its goal is to keep you from becoming all that you were created to be. As you silence the voice of shame, God is making you aware of the freedom you have access to as your inheritance. You get to choose to lean into the truth of what God says about you and declare it over yourself. Wisdom and discernment will be your friends as you navigate spiritual battles and move forward. God wants to generously give you insight into His plans, and when you pause and ask for wisdom, He is excited to deliver. As believers, we get to be part of the solution to end the divisiveness of the enemy by seeking unity and love. We have been gifted the ability to separate good from evil and to partner with God in what He is doing as we navigate situations. We also get to be part of the solution by praying for the creatives of the world. These ones play a significant role in the creative revolution God is birthing, and what they release will display His glory in a fresh way. This month, be intentional in your prayer and in your pursuit of wisdom, trusting God is making a way for His people.

Victorious Awakening | May Monthly BlogWritten By Anne Ballard | Apr 30, 2020
In the month of May, we believe there is a renewal taking place on the earth. Things that have been destroyed are being rebuilt and what has been lost is being restored. There is a victorious awakening happening in God’s people and those who can feel the tangible pull are rising up. It is time for us as a body to decide that we hold the key to the rebuilding. As we stand in faith, our ways of rebuilding may be misunderstood by the world. In times of uncertainty and pain, we get to choose to remain confident in the goodness of God. We will worship and praise Him in the midst of chaos. When we are left with little, we get to continue giving away to those in greater need. As isolation tempts us stronger, we are bent towards choosing connection and living in family. Fear of pain will convince us to stay distracted, but we will give into the stillness, allowing the Lord to heal our hurt. When feelings of confusion invade, instead of retreating, we will be the ones moving closer to God, asking what He is building in the earth. God is calling us to be united in this unprecedented time and as we choose to stand together in the rebuilding, He will do the heavy lifting.
