Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 8.30.19


The wicked brag about their body’s cravings; the greedy reject the LORD, cursing. At the peak of their wrath, the wicked don’t seek God: There’s no God— that’s what they are always thinking. Their ways are always twisted. Your rules are too lofty for them. They snort at all their foes. They think to themselves, We’ll never stumble. We’ll never encounter any resistance. Their mouths are filled with curses, dishonesty, violence. Under their tongues lie troublemaking and wrongdoing.

Psalms 10:3‭-‬7 CEB


Pride will leave us spiritually and emotionally blind, deaf, and in a manic, crippling state—as we spend our time consumed by thoughts of us, them, and we, and not of God and His expectations and desires for us.

We can’t say that we don’t know what God wants for us. His Word is clear, and even if you have doubts, because the good Book was drafted by men, then trust your gut; your intuition is a compass directly connected to God. Use it.

You KNOW when you are doing right and wrong. You know when you aren’t supposed to be speaking with someone, spending time with someone, doing certain things, or saying certain things. You know. Every time we ignore our intuition we ignore God.

Our pride and arrogance tells us that we know what we’re doing, but then we stupidly look around for God to help us when everything goes haywire. Lovingly He helps us on His time, which is the right time, but we don’t even recognize the abundant love He has for us to reach out and restore us even when we blatantly disrespect and disobey Him.

We need to place God first in our lives. Starting our days with Him, pushing through our days with Him, and ending our days with Him. Our mention of Him shouldn’t just be in need, during grace before we eat, before we sleep (when we remember), in church on Sundays (or Saturdays, and in mid week service (when we go), and definitely not coupled with profanity.

What if God only provided for us and answered our prayers during these moments (minus the profanity)? What if He said, “I will let you breathe on the days you live righteously” or, “I will make sure things go right for you when you pray to Me”?

Who would survive?

Only a small fraction of the world’s population.

God loves us unconditionally. We love Him with the strongest of conditions. Then we wonder why we have so much imbalance in our lives. Just a thought.


Lord, I want to do right by You. I want my days consumed with the principles that You possess and share with Your children. I want my beginning, middle, and end to be about reflecting, expressing, demonstrating, and representing You as Your ambassador in Christ.

I don’t want to try to make time for You, try to make time to pray, or try to make time to study Your word; the world is to wait as I find time for it, because You are to be my everything. Mold the weakness of pride out of me Father. Replace it with honor and righteousness, in Your light, Lord.

Father, when I lean to read another book before Yours, remind me. When I go to turn on the television before giving thanks to You, remind me. When I go to connect on the Internet before connecting with You, remind me. When I allow my day to go by without studying Your Word—which is my road map, my compass, my life plan and contingency plan, Lord remind me.

Remind me of my desire to be more like Jesus. Remind me of my desire to walk through my fears like Daniel, David, Joshua, Moses, and so many others. Remind me of my hope to live eternally by Your side with my loved ones.

Remind me of my dreams to raise and nurture healthy and loving children who respectfully and humbly fear displeasing You. Remind me Father. The great I Am, in Your name and in Jesus’ name, I do humbly pray and ask for Your guiding love today and every day. Amen.

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 8.29.19


Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.

Proverbs 16:18


Pride always leads to destruction. Pride will always block our blessings. When we are too prideful to say we need help, then we won’t get the help that we need. I have allowed my pride to completely contaminate my space and environment to the point that I have lost at times more than others may ever gain.

Is that not ridiculous to visualize?

My pride kept me from maintaining or developing further something I already had in my possession. How ignorant is that?

My pride has kept me from asking other people who could help me for assistance. Not wanting to appear weak, actually weakened me.

We must push pride out of our thinking and doing, just as we would fear (the root of pride), arrogance, and any other sin. Push it out. Get out of your own way and allow the blessings God has in store for you to flow in through whatever channels and paths that He has established.

God’s busy trying to provide us with opportunities to thrive and we’re busy blocking them with our pride—to the point that we, at times, struggle to survive. You never know who God has placed in your life to help you achieve your goals and fulfill your purpose in life. Let go and let God!


Father, I want my strength to come from faith in You, not in pride or arrogance, which only weaken me. Open my eyes to see and acknowledge how pride is self-destructive and the reasons for many of my failures in life. In times when I should be asking for assistance or direction, but my pride stands in the way, remind me of the blessings that I am blocking in my stubbornness. Free me from my personal bondage Lord. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Love always,

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 8.28.19


Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God.

If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.

1 Peter 4:10-11


God has blessed me with the ability to write, to be creative and a visionary. He blessed me with the gift of intuition that is so strong at times it can be unnerving. He blessed me with the strength to pick myself up every time I fall down, to pick myself up every time I face loss, to move myself every time I don’t think I can take that next step, and to get out of my own way.

God has blessed me to see the goodness in people, discern the light from the dark, see the fresh ‘fruits’ from the rotten ones, and make decisions based on His truth and not my desires.

God has blessed me with the ability to still be childlike without being childish. This ability allows me to connect on a deeper level with our smallest “angels” that we name after ourselves and those that we love. It allows me to connect with the weak who need to hear uplifting words and see empowering images so that they are strengthened to walk, then jog, then run the full course of life without being overwhelmed with their role in it.

God has touched my life in a way that gives me constant hope for my future, and the future of mankind. God has touched my life in a way that even in loss I am secure; that even when faced with losing loved ones I am still comforted in knowing that they are still watching over me, and that we will once again be reunited spiritually.

So why wouldn’t I share my gifts, talents, and blessings with the world? Why wouldn’t I find ways to express His goodness in my life so that it might touch and possibly change the lives of others? It is the sins of arrogance, pride, selfishness and greed that convince us to hoard our gifts for ourselves and share with no one (except maybe a select few of our choosing)?

God doesn’t bless us for us to keep the blessings to ourselves—we are supposed to spread our wealth to and with others. So let’s look at what we are good at and thrive in, and then think of ways to share our talents with our families, community, our state, our nation, and the world—and then DO IT!


Father, You have given me many gifts, talents, and blessings— more than I can even count. It would be a dishonor to You if I do not fully use the ones that I know of each day. You have blessed me with intuition which is a direct portal to You, that churns loudly when I may not hear your voice in my ear.

You have provided me with the best example of how to live, by sharing Your son Jesus Christ with me and the world. Thank You Father. Thank You for providing me with the road map, the script, the blueprint, the outlines, the vision board, and the story board for how to live my life.

Let my thoughts, words, actions, and deeds be molded by Jesus’ example through You Lord. When I walk and speak let the world see Christ in me. Mold me Father. Smash out, snatch out, squeeze out the darkness inside of me and infuse, mold, and shape Your lightness—so that there is no room for anything but Your goodness.

I know this won’t be easy. I know that I will continue to be tested and tempted to stray from You and my path. I will work each day to turn my head from temptation; to not give in to communicating with a person that I know intuitively was not sent by You, and is not supposed to be a part of my life. I know that this person is a test and that every moment I spend entertaining them, conversing with them, and investing in them I am failing You and Jesus— which means I am failing myself.

Father, I will work each day to overcome fleshly desires of envy, pride, arrogance, jealousy, greed, lust, fear, rage, and revenge. Instead let me turn to and be satisfied with a life of piety in Your honor, and through Jesus’ legacy. Amen.

Love always,

Your spiritual sister in Christ

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 8.27.19


Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.

And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.

1 Peter 5:6-11


There are times when it feels beyond difficult to breathe, think, or act. There are times when fear takes you hostage and you feel as though there is no ransom that will release you from imprisonment. You have more bills than bucks, more month than money, more debtors demanding payment than people repaying their debts to you. You can’t remember your last vacation, but you know you’re long overdue.

Your vehicle seems to have something wrong with it every 90-120 days which makes matters worse since you have a car note that you risk or already have fallen behind on paying (on time or at all).

An appliance (AC, heater, refrigerator, stove, etc) at your home seems to go out when you most need it—every 200 days it seems, something is going out or breaking down. Every 6 months or so, you seem to have some weird ailment, injury or pain you can’t shake off, and your body weight keeps yo-yo’ing throughout the year.

But what if we started each day praying to our shepherd Jesus Christ, and to his and our heavenly Father-Mother?

What if we prayed for the strength to endure, vision to see, the auditory skills to hear, the ability to move swiftly, think with precision, and act efficaciously? What if we released the things we are not (or not yet) capable of handling and instead focus on those issues—that through Jesus, as the wayshower, we can resolve?

What if we did our best in every aspect of our life and relied on Jesus to show us the way, and relied on God to make the way possible? What if we stopped talking and thinking about what we can’t do and instead focus on what we can do? What if every day we took one step closer towards the unknown,visualizing Jesus holding our hand, and knowing that God is right there?

What if….

Think about it.

I love you all. I pray that we’re all strengthened by God’s Word and Jesus’ walk. I pray that those warriors and ambassadors we read about in the Bible give us the extra ‘pep in our step’ to declare, “yes I can” and then we do it with passion and purpose. Pray for me as I pray for you.


Father, as You know I am going through many tests right now and there are times when the pressure seems unbearable, but I grit my teeth, bear down, and breathe—as I exhale and put my faith in Your protection and guidance. There are times that I want to cry because I feel like I have ‘bitten off more’ than I can ‘chew’ and the only way to turn back is to simply fall on my face, lay there, and fail. I don’t want to fail Lord. I don’t want to be a disappointment to You, Jesus, myself, or to my family. So each day I pray to You for the strength to not only make it through but to see the possibilities for tomorrow.

I know that I’m not alone in this. I know that there are other believers who struggle with the same issues, more issues, or worse issues. We all must carry the cross to demonstrate our faith, and to reach salvation.

I know that the enemy, in its limited capability, hides around the corner waiting to ambush me and knock me off my path, with lures of temptation and traps of fear, but I declare that each day I will pray for the strength and conviction to overcome temptation and fear, defeat mortal mind, and take one step closer towards fulfilling my purpose in Your Kingdom.

It is because of You that I live, survive, thrive, am blessed, and am a blessing to others. In You I place my anxieties for only You can destroy them. Only You can make wrong right, turn darkness to light, solve the unsolvable, and do the impossible. In Jesus’ name I pray to You Lord. Amen.

P.S. If you feel this message or any other are too long, is that your true thinking, produced and influenced through God? Or is that mortal mind’s influence, attacking and convincing you that there is a time limit—depending on the vehicle and medium being used— for receiving God’s message? If you don’t have 2-7 minutes to take in scripture, and to pray and reflect, then why should God take time to listen to you, heal you, resolve your issues, or take care of your needs? I’m just saying…

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 8.26.19


When my heart was bitter, when I was all cut up inside, I was stupid and ignorant. I acted like nothing but an animal toward you. But I was still always with you! You held my strong hand! You have guided me with your advice; later you will receive me with glory.

Do I have anyone else in heaven? There’s nothing on earth I desire except you. My body and my heart fail, but God is my heart’s rock and my share forever.

Psalms 73:21‭-‬26 CEB


We can look around and see family members, our significant other, friends, associates, and acquaintances, but the only Love that is unconditionally guaranteed is God’s.

The only source for eternal Life and Truth is God. The only solution to our problems is God. Salvation can only come by way of God, so why not put our trust fully in Him?

We expect Him to be there for us, but how dependable are we to have complete and total faith in Him? Where’s our unconditional love for Him?


Lord, no matter what I do or say, no matter how I act or think, You have always been my comforter, my rock, my fortress, my protector, my Father-Mother—my beginning, middle, and end. Thank You.

Thank You for restoring me when I am beat down, worn out, and don’t know where to go or what to do. You are always here, there, everywhere. Thank You Father.

Thank You for mending my broken heart each time someone took advantage of me, played games on me, felt empowered to tell me lies while “stabbing” me in my back, or looked in my eyes claiming to love me while they schemed with and lusted after another. Thank You for helping me to forgive them, sometimes in phases, and begin to let go of the grip the pain had on me.

Thank You for redirecting me when my selfishness steered me off of Your desired path. When my lust, greed, or self-centeredness reared their ugly heads to get in the way. Thank You for loving me even when I’m unloving. You are the example that I’m to follow, unconditionally, yet I struggle, even though I know the endless blessings that I would have. Thank You for still loving me.

Thank You for lifting my head, wiping my tears, strengthening my body, healing my heart, calming my mind, mending that which is torn or broken, and taking my hand as I learn to walk on a new path with increasing confidence.

Thank You Father for making a way out of no way, for making sure that bills were and are paid when they were supposed to, and for reassuring me that the unpaid bills would one day be settled. Thank You for showing me how to run the marathon called life—moment by precious moment, and for healing me— when man said, that only through his medicine could I be healed. Thank you Lord. In Your son Jesus’ name I humbly pray to You. Amen.

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 8.23.19


Above all, show sincere love to each other, because love brings about the forgiveness of many sins.

1 Peter 4:8 CEB


When we think of God first, and reflect upon His presence and love in our life, then how can we not overcome our fears, insecurities, and fleshly desires? We can, but we put flesh above spirit the majority of the time and that is why we cowardly give in to the darkness that enshrouds us, cripples us, and pushes us farther off our path that God has placed before us.

God IS Love, so let us rely upon and live in that love to strengthen us and make us better people, better leaders, better followers of Christ, and better children of the Lord.

Why don’t we try telling ourselves silently and aloud, “God loves me and that’s all that I need” before we make any tough decision in life? Before we allow darkness to creep in and take over our minds and hearts let’s say with truth, conviction and complete belief that, “God loves me and that’s all that I need” and then watch as darkness pulls back and love’s light consumes.

Jealousy, envy, lust, greed, arrogance, pride, and all of the other sins will not have the strength to consume you when you declare that God is all that you need—and you believe it!

Let’s try that starting today….


Father, there is no doubt that I have sinned, even this week, even today. I sinned by giving into fear, jealousy, envy, and even other weaknesses that You despise— this we both know.

Lord, I want to be overwhelmed with the fullness and abundance of love for You, for myself, for my loved ones, and for the world that I do not give in to the luring by sins that wait for me.

Let Your love that pours in and through me, blind the darkness that would creep inside of and overtake me. For You are most powerful, omni present, all loving, the sole healer, and the ultimate giver of gifts and blessings— that no other presence can compare. Knowing this, I should never be weakened by another presence if I’m totally filled with Yours.

Father, I am working each day to be strengthened in and by Your Word, so that in times of possible doubt I will push through and prevail in and through love, and not fear— through love and not envy, jealousy, insecurity, lust, greed, or lack.

In Your name, the great I Am, I pray to You, as a follower and believer of Christ. Amen.

Loving you always,

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 8.21.19


Don’t let loyalty and faithfulness leave you. Bind them on your neck; write them on the tablet of loyaltyyour heart. Then you will find favor and approval in the eyes of God and humanity.

Proverbs 3:3‭-‬4 CEB


We are in a time where people are faithful at being unfaithful in more areas than romantic relationships. We are unfaithful in our roles as servants of God, employees and leaders in the workplace, and stewards in the community. So it’s no wonder we fail miserably in matters of the heart—-why we aren’t faithful and loyal in romantic relationships or to our children.

We aren’t faithful because we aren’t loyal, and we aren’t loyal because we aren’t faithful. They run together, side-by-side.

Some people confuse loyalty and faithfulness. According to Collins English Dictionary, loyalty is the quality of staying firm and unmovable in your relationship or support for someone or something. It’s your stickability, your I’m-not-going-anywhere attitude and position.

Faithfulness, according to this same source, is when you remain firm in your belief about someone or something. The more faithful you are the more you believe in the relationship, project, activity, etc. Which means that the more we believe that something is, can be, or will be rewarding to us, the more faithful we are. If you think you will succeed you will remain faithful.

To be faithful is to strongly believe in the possibility or the perceived reality— to strongly believe in someone or something.

To be loyal is to stick around through the good, bad, and boring times. Loyalty means you aren’t searching for a replacement, because you’re too focused on investing in what you have in front of you. Loyalty means that you don’t abandon a relationship or situation just because it’s not perfect or ideal, or because times got tough. It is your lack of faith that causes you to be disloyal. Some people didn’t have strong faith to begin with, so loyalty is never truly formed.

Loyalty encourages you to be innovative and creative in how you demonstrate your stickability, and in helping you to add reinforcing layers of belief, that increases and enhances your faith.

God first, family second, career third. Those are to be our priorities. In that order there is order, balance, clarity, peace, love, and joy. You have to tend to these and be faithful and loyal to these priorities before you can look to an outside priority.

Switch even one element and there is a major shift in your atmosphere. Attempt to replace one element with a fourth option and watch your ‘dominoes’ fall down. When we aren’t loyal and faithful to God, look at how the other two elements are impacted.

If you currently don’t have balance, peace, and a sense of effortlessness in your life then you most likely have your priorities off. Sit back, map it out, reflect, see it, and then do something to make it right!


Father, I pray to always be faithful and loyal to You and my loved ones, and faithful and loyal to whatever task that You set before me or path that You want me to follow. I pray to be a faithful and loyal warrior set out to rebuild and restore—for Your glory— damaged and inflicted families and communities—and not just foolishly or selfishly only concerned about family’s wellbeing. I pray that love is expressed by me always, even in frustration or pain. Hold my tongue from speaking ill of others. Hold me back from taking part in drama. Position me to prioritize my life and each day in service to You, and completing tasks in the order and with the energy that You see fit. Giving You all of the glory, forever. Amen.

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 8.20.19


Humility is the fear of the Lord; its wages are riches and honor and life.

Proverbs 22:4


If humility is the way to riches, honor, and life then why are we not surrendering? Are you ready to surrender?


Father, there is nothing or no one I should fear but You, and I say that respectfully. There is no greater power or presence than You. There is no source capable of providing me with everlasting joy, happiness, love, and life than You.

I cannot thrive, gain riches and wealth, or grow without You. I cannot be in perfect mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional health without You. I humbly surrender to You Father. I humbly admit that without You there is no me. Without You I have no home. Without You I cannot eat or drink. Without You there is no purpose. You are everything and my everything.

I fear not pleasing You. I fear losing Your favor. I want to serve You and be the best ambassador that I can be as an example for Your children—my brothers and sisters in Christ. Show me the way Lord. Show me how to serve You best. Show me how to humble myself to Your liking.

Show me how to best be receptive to You Father. I want to see what You have before me. I want to hear Your voice, even at a whisper.

This can only happen with You Lord and through Your son Jesus. Show me how Father. Show me how. I love you. Amen.

Love always,

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 8.19.19


Although most of the many people who came from Ephraim, Manasseh, Issachar and Zebulun had not purified themselves, yet they ate the Passover, contrary to what was written. But Hezekiah prayed for them, saying, “May the Lord, who is good, pardon everyone who sets their heart on seeking God—the Lord, the God of their ancestors—even if they are not clean according to the rules of the sanctuary.” And the Lord heard Hezekiah and healed the people.

2 Chronicles 30:18-20


Even those who were “unclean” were still healed by God. There is hope for all of us. Set your heart and mind on God, pray for forgiveness, enlightenment, strength, guidance, and sustenance. Pray for healing. Pray for the ability to heal. Pray for blessings. Pray to be a blessing to others. Pray for discernment for you and others.

Pray, that as His reflection, you demonstrate more Godlike than humanlike behaviors. Pray that you lean more on Him and less on your flawed and limited understanding. Now go touch another’s life in a positive and loving way.


Father, I love You. Thank You for accepting me while still molding me to be the best spiritual reflection of You. Thank You for allowing me to eat, drink, and live life even if I haven’t fulfilled my obligations to You, obeyed all of Your commands, or walked straight on the path that You have laid. You are loving, kind, gracious, giving, forgiving, understanding, and the provider of anything and everything that I could ever want or need. Thank You. I thank You Father for showing me how to live life and treat others. I love You. Amen.

Love you all,

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 8.16.19


Now this is what the Lord Almighty says: “Give careful thought to your ways. You have planted much, but harvested little. You eat, but never have enough. You drink, but never have your fill. You put on clothes, but are not warm. You earn wages, only to put them in a purse with holes in it.”

Haggai 1:5-6


We get out of life what we invest in it. We get out of life the deposited emotions and perceptions we foresee. If we live in doubt we receive the negative investment we made. If we live with feelings and perceptions of lack, we face days of minimalism. If we give partial effort, we live in mediocrity.

How does that make us spiritual reflections of God, if He is none of these things?

If we are to honor Him and serve as His ambassadors, representing Him to the fullest, we must stop living our lives small and start walking tall with large strides— thinking big—and expressing ourselves on the grandest of scales—while remaining humble and dignified as our shepherd, Jesus exemplified.

Let’s go for it and live our lives with purpose as God intends!


Father, I pray for satisfaction in the seeds that I sow. If I only give half effort then I should be satisfied with those results.

Silence me Father when I begin to whine or complain about things not going right in my life, about my overdue bills, mounting expenses, incessant calls from debt collectors, my body that is carrying around excess weight, a house that’s not a home, a car with a title I don’t own and possess, or my inability to travel at my leisure. For if I never do what I’m supposed to do in life I will never get out of it what I truly desire.

I desire a hearty harvest, a full stomach, to never thirst, adequate clothes that fit properly, keep me cool in the heat and warm in the cold, and a disciplined mind where I earn more than enough wages to budget wisely, pay my bills on time, save enough for emergencies and special moments, invest responsibly to provide for my future and my legacy, and to donate to and invest in others.

I want to thrive not just survive, abundance not lack. I can only do these things through and with You Father, and the example set by Your son Jesus Christ. In his name I pray to You. Amen.

Loving you all!
