Everyone has a bad day but…..

Everyone has a bad day and that’s a fact we need to live with. It’s a part of life.

The past couple of days has been pretty rough. There were things I was dealing

with which were not fun. The challenges I was facing got me discouraged about

my life. What made it worse was the fact I couldn’t do anything about it in my own strength.

I needed the Lord to help me or I really was in “trouble”!


After speaking to my friend who encouraged me I sought the Lord for peace

and help. As I waited on Him I believe He spoke to me…… watching Masterchef Australia (my

favorite cook show.)


One of my favorite contestants was in a pressure test which wasn’t good. That meant they were

in the bottom three and had to fight to stay in the competition. There is no contestant that

wants to be in a pressure test. It’s difficult and the chance to be kicked out is very high.

The contestants who are in the pressure test wear a black apron which doesn’t help the situation

I think! (But that’s just me, they could think it’s cool!)

Anyway before they started their test one of the judges said something that blew me away.

I don’t remember his exact words but he said something to the effect of,


“Every past champion has been where you guys are. Every champion has worn the black apron.

Every champion at one time or other has been in a pressure test.”


That was profound and what I needed to hear. Every winner had a bad day in the competition.

Every winner faced elimination at one time or more in the competition.

It wasn’t all smooth sailing for them!

That revelation really encouraged me.

There will be “black apron” moments in my life but that doesn’t mean I am done for. I don’t need to panic

and worry in those times because YAH is with me and He will bring me through the difficult times.


We all have bad day’s friends but don’t let it lead you into thinking “this is

the way things will always be”  because that’s not true. Things will get better.

There are so many real life examples but for this post I will use Peter. He denied the Lord. Things must

have been really bad for him. John 21 it tells us that Peter went fishing with a few of the other disciples.

Things were so bad for him that he went back to his old profession. I can only imagine how he felt after he

denied our Lord.

To make it worse that day, they caught nothing! (John 21:3)

Things were bad but to cut a long story short Yeshua showed up and gave Peter and the other disciples

new hope. He reaffirmed Peter’s purpose,


“The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”

Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me? He said, “Lord, you

know all things; you know that I love you.”

Jesus said, “Feed my sheep. “

John 21:17


Peter had a really bad day but Yeshua forgave him and reinforced his calling.

Know this;  “your bad day doesn’t jeopardize YAH’s call on your life”

A bad day is exactly that, a bad day.

The danger we make is thinking there is more to the bad day. That’s what I was doing

before my friend spoke to me. That was a lie.

The Lord will bring you out of whatever you are facing.

He wants you to accomplish the things He created you for and yes, there will be confusing times and days

you fall but that doesn’t change anything. The Lord will help you accomplish everything He called

you to. (I am speaking to me as well)

Bad days are a part of life but remember to always turn to the Lord in those days.

He will help you through the worst of times and bring you to a place of peace, joy, and blessings.

Blessings to you friends.







“The hand of the Lord was upon me, and He brought me out in the Spirit of the Lord

and set me down in the middle of the valley, it was full of bones. And He led me 

around among them, and behold, they were very dry. 

And He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, “O Lord God, 

You know. 

Then He said to me, Prophesy over these bones and say to them, O dry bones, hear

the word of the Lord. ” 

Ezekiel 37:1-14


I was so encouraged by this passage of scripture this week. I can identify with the valley of dry bones!

I know what you are thinking, “don’t you mean you can identify with what Ezekiel was doing Rolain?”

No, I mean it, I can identify with what YAH showed Ezekiel!

I know there are dormant places in my life that are “very dry”.  There are dead areas in my

life that need awakening, what about you?

The prophet was taken to a land full of dry bones, very dry bones and was asked a question,


“Son of man, can these bones live?” 


I believe the Lord was speaking to me through this verse. “Can these bones live?”

“Can the dead areas in my life be revived anew?”

“Can the dormant things in my life rise?”


If you are feeling the same way and asking the same questions, the answer is yes,

These bones can live again!!

The dead areas in your life can come to life….


After asking Ezekiel the question YAH told him to prophesy to the dry bones.

Always remember that before YAH did anything, He spoke it out first. That’s the pattern

we see in the word. He always spoke what He was going to do before He actually did it.

Our words are powerful like we can’t believe. We need to learn to speak more, to prophesy

over situations in our lives. Complaining and grumbling about what’s happening in

our lives will not help our situation, it will only make it worse.


There is one more part to this story I want to share. Let’s look at another scripture,


“Then He said to me, “Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. Behold, 

they say, ‘Our bones are dried up, and our hope is lost; we are indeed cut off.’ 

Therefore prophesy, and say to them, Thus says the Lord God: Behold, I will open 

your graves and raise you from your graves, O my people. And I will bring you into

the land of Israel.”

Ezekiel 37:11, 12


Where it seemed like there was no hope, the Lord assured them He was with them.

There seemed like there was no way but they were wrong, the Lord would make a

way for them. They were not cut off as they thought. The Lord loved them and would save



We have hope friends….as long as the Lord is with us, we have hope.

No matter how dead a situation is, the Lord can and will revive it. He is the God who

lets dry bones live again! It’s time to speak up. The enemy wants us silent because

he knows what our words backed up by YAH’s word can do!

Have a great weekend to you all!



What does God see when He looks at us?

“God has not beheld iniquity in Jacob [for he is forgiven], neither has He seen 

mischief or perverseness in Israel [for the same reason]. The Lord their God 

is with Israel, and the shout of praise to their King is among their people.” 

Numbers 23:21


This is a pretty amazing verse if you ask me. Balak hired Balaam to curse

the people of Israel but things were not going according to his plan.

Blessing was happening instead of cursing. Balaam could only speak what YAH

told him. But that’s not the amazing bit, whats amazing are the words YAH put in

Balaam’s mouth to speak (declare).


Up to this point Israel had rebelled against YAH in so many ways. They were back

in the desert because they failed to believe YAH could take them to the promise land

even though they were by the “door”.


They complained, tested, grumbled, and worshipped other gods (the golden calf) so you would think

YAH would allow the cursing to happen as a way of punishment for all the wrong things they

had done to that point. But that is not what happened.


Instead of allowing Balaam to curse them, He let him bless them!

He had forgiven them completely. Through all the bad they did and all the bad they were

going to do YAH still forgave them. He didn’t hold their sin against them.

This is a picture of how merciful our God is. We deserve worse because of our sin

but that’s not what we get.

The Israelites failed YAH so many times and yet He still loved them, He still forgave them,

He stopped Balaam from cursing them.

Do we really understand how great YAH’s love is for us?

I think the enemy lies to us that our sin is unbearable to YAH and because it’s so

unbearable, He will keep His distance from us. That’s a lie.


I am not saying it’s okay to sin, what I am saying is that YAH loves us no matter what.

There are consequences for sin and that is shown by the Israelites who never made it into the

promise land because of their unbelief.


But to say that the Lord hates us and can’t stand us because of sin is a lie. When He sees

us, He sees His children. He loves us so much.

You may have messed up and are continuing to mess up but know that you can repent.

Confidently cry out to Him when you fall. He doesn’t disown you when you sin. He picks

you up and that’s how much He loves us

We are truly blessed….





When the year is not going the way I want it to go…..

I can’t believe we are already in March. Time is moving at an unbelievable pace.

As I look at the past two months I can say “things” have happened but I can also

see how there have been a lot of things that haven’t happened as well.

I have goals I want to accomplish which I have made throughout the year.

At the end of the year I review them and see how much progress I have made.

But as I look at the past two months I know I haven’t made as much progress as I thought

I would make.

These two months haven’t been smooth sailing as well. The enemy has tried to get me off

my game and his plan worked for a time. I am still recovering from his attacks…..


So yes, March is here and it doesn’t seem like much has happened as far as accomplishing

goals goes……So what do I do?

Does change only happen at the start of the year?

Do I have to wait for a new year to make the change?

Or can something be done now? Can a turn around happen today?


“For He says: “In an acceptable time I have heard you, 

And in the day of salvation I have helped you.” 

Behold, now is the accepted time, behold, now is the day of 


2 Corinthians 6:2


Today is the day according to that word. I don’t have to wait for end of the year to make

the changes that need to be made. I don’t need to wait for end of the year to tweak things

and try again.

We all have today to start anew.

Today is another opportunity given to us. We don’t need to beat ourselves up.


You don’t have to wait for end of the year to make the changes you need to

make. You don’t have to wait for the end of a year for YAH to turn your life around.

Today is the day. Today is the accepted time.

Don’t be despaired because things are going all wrong for you. You can cry out to the Lord right

now for mercy, for help!

Today, His mercy is available to you, His grace, His empowerment to do what He has called ‘

you to do. When we fall we can get up and try again.


We need His grace to live out this life.

We need His grace to move to the next level.


Be encouraged today friends.

There is a new hope today!

Bless you.



The curtain is torn!

“With a loud cry, Jesus breathed His last. 

The curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.” 

Mark 15:37, 38


I was really encouraged this week as I read this scripture. In the old testament the high priest was

the only one who could go into the Holy of Holies but once a year. (Exodus 26:31, Leviticus 16:2)

The people could not go to YAH on their own because they would die if they did. They needed a



“The Lord said to Moses, “Tell your brother Aaron that he is not to come whenever he chooses

into the Most Holy Place behind the curtain in front of the atonement cover on the ark, or else 

he will die.” 

Leviticus 16:2


That was intense. There were was no open communication between YAH and the people

but Yeshua tore that barrier down by what He did on the cross.

We now have access to YAH anytime because of what He did.


I know this is not rocket science but do we really take FULL advantage of this amazing blessing?

We can go to YAH anytime. In the middle of the night, when things are going downhill, when

we have sinned and are riddled with guilt, when we feel condemned…….

We can come to Him anytime! There is never a bad time to approach Him!

If you think there are specific times you can go to Him then you have been deceived, if you

think there are people that have more reason to approach Him than you then you are also wrong.

The curtain has been torn in two. The barrier that kept us from Him has been demolished forever.


This week has been great because I have been taking more advantage of the amazing blessing

of His presence. To know I can talk to Him at ANYTIME has brought joy to me.

When I think I am alone, He is right by my side waiting to spend time with me.

The problem is me. I am the one who allows things to come between us. I choose other things

in place of spending time with Him

And then there are the times when I mess up, when I sin. I keep away from Him at times thinking

He doesn’t want to be anywhere near me but its just not true.


As I end this post I want to leave you with the realization that the line of communication between you

and YAH is open! You don’t have to wait for the right time to approach Him.

Go to Him now as you are.

He loves you so much, beyond what you can ever comprehend.


“Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive 

mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” 

Hebrews 4:16



Bless you friends





When faith fails….

“Jesus asked the boy’s father, “how long has he been like this? 

From childhood,” he answered. It has often thrown him into fire or water to kill him. 

But if You can do anything, take pity on us and help us.” 

“If you can? said Jesus. Everything is possible for one who believes.

Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!” 

Mark 9:21-24


“If you can do anything” was what the man told Yeshua. He wasn’t sure He could

heal his son. Nothing had worked till that point.

But this is the thing, when coming to the Lord you need to have faith. Faith as small as a mustard

seed is better than coming to Him with nothing.


The man’s faith failed him……

I understand that totally. My faith in the Lord has failed a few times not because He failed me

but because I  was either impatient or I didn’t understand.

Nothing is impossible for Him and that’s the truth.


He helped the man in his moment of weakness.

He can do the same thing for you and me when our faith falls.


So when you lose hope, when you think He can’t do something cry out to Him for help.

He can help you in your moment of weakness.

He wants us to always come to Him in faith no matter how small it is.

The enemy on the other hand wants to destroy any kind of faith we have in YAH.

He wants us to worry, be anxious, and fear.

Don’t let him win. Don’t believe the lies he tells you.


The Lord is forever faithful. He can be trusted and no matter how bad things seem He will

come through for you. He will fulfill everything He promised you. He will never let you down!

Hold on to the word with all that you have. Come to Him in faith always no matter how small!

Bless you.




Why wait till tomorrow??!!

“Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron, and said, Entreat the Lord, that He may take away the frogs

from me and my people; and I will let the people go that they may sacrifice to the Lord. 

Moses said to Pharaoh, glory over me in this; dictate when I shall pray [to the Lord] for you, your servants,

and your people, that the frogs may be destroyed from you and your houses and remain only in the river. 

And [Pharaoh] said, Tomorrow. [Moses] said, Let it be as you say, that you may know that there is no one

like the Lord our God.” 

Exodus 8:8-10


I am stumped! The land of Egypt was overrun by frogs (this was the second plague in a series of plagues).

When Pharaoh couldn’t get rid of them he called Moses and Aaron to pray to YAH to get rid of them.

When they came, Moses gave him an interesting proposition if you can call it that,


“dictate when I shall pray [to the Lord] for you, your servants, and your people, that the frogs may be 

destroyed from you and your houses and remain only in the river.”


Instead of saying “immediately” Pharaoh told Moses to pray “tomorrow”!!!

And that’s what got me stumped! Why wait till tomorrow???

The plague could have stopped immediately but instead, the plague would stop the next day!!


How many of us are like that though?

How many of us are tolerating today waiting to pray tomorrow??? (I am guilty of this!!)

Yeshua is waiting to move in your life today not tomorrow, next week, next month or next year.

He wants to move in your life today. He wants you to pray today, to put your faith in Him today!

You may think you need to wait for everything in your life to get right before you pray but that’s a lie.

The time is now!

The time to seek Him is now, not when you are perfect.


Pharaoh’s problem could have been solved straight away but he decided tomorrow would be the day.

Please get the heart of the message. Now is the time to get your breakthrough.

Yeshua is ready to move today and not tomorrow.

Don’t wait to ask, don’t wait to pray.

Your victory is not scheduled for some day in the future so be expectant today.

Expect YAH to move in your life today because today is the day!

Bless you friends….






You first…..

“Aaron shall bring the bull for his own sin offering to make atonement for himself

and his household, and he is to slaughter the bull for his own sin offering.” 

Leviticus 16:11


Before Aaron who was the high priest could atone for the Israelites he had to atone for

himself and his family first.

If he skipped that, the probability of dying in the tabernacle increased hundredfold.

He had to make sure he was okay before he could help the next person.

Why is this important?


It’s important because we need to have the same attitude if we want to help someone else.

I am not saying you must achieve perfection if you want to help someone else.

On the contrary, help where you can but make sure you are being helped.

Make sure you are being helped as you help others.

Don’t be arrogant and think you don’t need help.


You can’t do much if you are empty. Let YAH fill you continually. Let Him work on you continually.

Bring to Him your shortcomings and weaknesses daily. Cry out for His grace every chance you get.

It’s an honor for us that He chooses imperfect vessels to use. He could do everything by Himself

but He chooses to use you and me!

And that’s why you need to be first…….






Expect Him to move in your life today……..Part 2

I wasn’t planning to do this but after I wrote the first part I realized

I had to go deeper. I want to break this topic down and talk about

the process, how do we

“Expect YAH to move in our lives today?”

I am going to introduce three things that could help you.


  1. Bring your past to Him

You may have had a difficult past but you can let go. You don’t

have to let it dictate what your future will be like.

Bring your past to the Lord. He doesn’t want you holding on to

it any longer. Your future is brighter and full of hope.

I used to hold on to the past so tight that it became a part of me.

I used to wear it like a badge everywhere I went. And even though

what happened to me was serious, YAH wanted me to release it

to Him so He could show me a future He had planned for me.

Friends, don’t let your past ruin what YAH has for you now…


“Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old.

Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not 

perceive it.” 

Isaiah 43:18


2. Change the words you are speaking


“And behold, a woman who had suffered from a flow of blood for

twelve years came up behind Him and touched the fringe of His


for she kept saying to herself, if I only touch His garment,  I shall

be restored to health. ” 

Matthew 9:20, 21


The woman kept speaking what she was believing for. There is

power in the words we speak. What comes out of your mouth

has an impact on your life. Speak life, speak what you believing

for and don’t fall into the trap of speaking negatively.


“A good man eats good from the fruit of his mouth, but the desire of

the treacherous is for violence. 

He who guards his mouth keeps his life, but he who opens wide

his lips comes to ruin.” 

Proverbs 13:2, 3


3. Spend more time with YAH 

I put this as the last thing because I find it so hard. I am constantly

fighting distractions left, right and center. And the crazy thing is, I

created most of the distractions!! That’s so messed up!

We need to spend more time in His word, more time speaking to

Him and listening to Him.



I will leave you with those three things to ponder on.

I hope those points will help you on your journey.

The Lord wants to move in your life for sure. Be expectant.

Bless you friends…..







Expect Him to move in your life today…..

“Expect the Holy Spirit to move.

Your faith will never rise higher than your level of expectation”


This statement was a wake up call to me this week. It was a wake up call to be expectant.

Am I expectant all the time? Not really.

Sometimes the cares of the world weigh me down and I get stuck. But YAH doesn’t want me there.

He is great and mighty and cares for me and wants to be there for me…..


The level of my expectation needs to rise. The higher my expectation the higher my faith level.

The woman with the issue of blood comes to mind. She wasn’t like, “oh well, let me see if I can get

a healing. If Yeshua heals me, great but if He doesn’t, at least I tried.”

What!!! Crazy right??!! The woman had a high expectation. She wasn’t thinking, “what if”.

She was going to get her healing full stop! (Luke 8:43-48)


Friends, we need to raise our expectancy level. We can’t have a ‘whatever happens, happens’ approach to YAH.

Expect the Holy Spirit to move in you and through you because He is going to move! (that’s for me!!)

Another friend of mine shared her thoughts about expectation,


“The definition of expectation is, “a strong belief that something will happen or be the case in

the future.” 

Our expectations for Yeshua can be set high.”


We need to turn the level up of our expectation. We can’t be mediocre about this. Our expectation will

always be challenged but let’s ask the Holy Spirit to help us live expectant every single day.

What areas in your life is your expectation low or non existent?

Bring those areas to Him. Let Him breath new life into those dead areas.

I have found that because of deferred hope/disappointments our expectations can be hampered but I believe

YAH wants us to be expectant in Him again. No matter what has happened in the past we need to live expectant.

We need His help to do this.

Let me share a scripture with you,


“Now unto Him that is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the

power that worketh in us.”

Ephesians 3:20


Nothing is impossible for Him, so be expectant!

Expect, hope and trust without restraint!

That’s my challenge and your challenge in this season!

Bless you friends….
