This weekend marks 6 years since I first began hosting gatherings for ICU. As I enter another year of ministry, I feel God wants to remind us to be expectant of what He’s planned for our futures!

Today I’m sharing one of my Car Notes from August 2nd. I hope it’s a blessing to you! Friends, BE EXPECTANT!!! 🌈




8.2.21—Believe


Have faith in God. If He told you He’ll give you a gift, then He’s giving you a gift.


When the package arrives, it’ll be better than anything Amazon or any delivery company could send your way. It’ll arrive right on time and you won’t have to concern yourself with a return policy. 


It’ll surely be worth keeping. You’ll love it! πŸ’›


Evidence… πŸ‘‡πŸΎ


““Don’t be afraid, Mary,” the angel told her, “for you have found favor with God! You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you will name him Jesus. Mary asked the angel, “But how can this happen? I am a virgin.” The angel replied, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the baby to be born will be holy, and he will be called the Son of God. What’s more, your relative Elizabeth has become pregnant in her old age! People used to say she was barren, but she has conceived a son and is now in her sixth month. For the word of God will never fail.” Mary responded, “I am the Lord’s servant. May everything you have said about me come true.” And then the angel left her.”


Luke 1:30-31, 34-38 NLT


There is so much God wants to deliver to you and through you! He will not fail.


As I thought of this passage, what struck me was Mary’s decision to align her belief with the words of the angel Gabriel. 


To share a bit of my own story, about two months after the birth of my sister Katrina, I was conceived! 😬 I can only imagine my mom’s conversation with God back then. I wonder if she said, “Lord, my oldest is 5 years old and now we’re talking a fourth little girl in the mix when my youngest is still a baby?! Also, I wanted a boy.” πŸ₯΄πŸ˜³


Months after she knew she was pregnant, her doctor shared that her body was beginning to reject me which meant I could arrive too early or die. She had to make a decision to partner in faith for my life. Praise God she did and I am here. I’m also not a boy πŸ˜†, but she would tell you herself she’s so glad God gave her four girls!


Y’all what are you believing for? What is supposed to be birthed out of your life? 


God wants you to see it. 

Will you believe for it?

He wants to do it!


Evidence… πŸ‘‡πŸΎ


“Will I open the womb and not bring to birth? says the LORD. Will I, who create life, close the womb? says your God. As a mother comforts her child, so I will comfort you; in Jerusalem you will be comforted. When you see this, your heart will rejoice; your entire being will flourish like grass. The LORD’s power will be known among his servants, but his fury among his enemies.”

Isaiah 66:9, 13-14 CEB
