STRONG in the LORD: A Fight to the Finish – S4 Ep5 

In general, no one is exempt from problems. No doubt, those challenges vary in degrees of difficulty. Moreover, for some people, their problems overwhelm them to the point of hopelessness. Why? Because, when one feels as if they are always fighting battles from day to day, it can take a toll on their mind and spirit. And it is in those times of weakness that the thoughts of suicide have overtaken many. But there is another way. Hence, this episode — STRONG in the LORD: A Fight to the Finish.

God is Close – S4 DEp5

Lady V’s Devotional Episode 

Psalm 34:17-19 (NLT) says: 

The LORD hears his people when they call to him for help. He rescues them from all their troubles. The LORD is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed. The righteous person faces many troubles, but the LORD comes to the rescue each time. 

Psalm 34:17-19 (NLT)  

Devotional  

I’m a mother. And ever since my daughter was a baby, I had my ears tuned to hear her cry. And, although she is an adult now, I’m still concerned about her well-being.  

So much so, I’ll come running when she needs me! I want to know when something troubles her! I want to rescue her from any hurts or disappointments. I love her that much! 

No doubt, love makes you want to rescue the ones you love!

So, when we read Psalm 34:17-19 (NLT), we are reminded of the Heavenly Father’s love for us. The Heavenly Father tunes in to HIS children too. He’s not a distant God. He is close enough to hear our cries!

From Weeping to JOY – S4 Ep4 

In general, most people understand that life consists of ebbs and flows. We all have or will experience ups and downs, easy times as well as tough times. Sadly, for some individuals, the hard times overwhelm and overtake them. In other words, they only see suicide as the solution to their troubles. But oh, my friends, there is a better way — trusting God. In my experience, trusting Him took me from weeping to joy.

Of course, I must show you what the Holy Bible says about the matter in the following scripture. Proverbs 3:5-6 English Standard Version says, “5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. 6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”

Lady V’s Devotional Episode 

Psalm 30:4-5 (GNT) says: 

Sing praise to the LORD, all his faithful people! Remember what the Holy One has done, and give him thanks! 

His anger lasts only a moment, his goodness for a lifetime. Tears may flow in the night, but joy comes in the morning.  

Psalm 30:4-5 (GNT) 

Devotional 

When we read about David, we find that although he suffered through many trials, God favored him a whole lot. David had so many victories in his life. In fact, you would have thought he was a star athlete always at the top of his game.  

But, like us, David had some issues and wasn’t without fault. So much so, David suffered a great deal because of it. His list of sins was long. He had many moments of a lapse in judgment.  

Yet, God was merciful to him. And yes, God’s grace and favor was right there to save him.

Letting Go – S4 Ep2

In general, most people would agree that it is good to take an inventory of one’s life. Why? Because it is during that time one reflects on who or what they need to purge from their lives. For the most part, that means breaking the chains that have been holding you back from living your best life. How? By letting go.

Thus, I liken it to a spring cleaning of sorts. Of course, no one likes spring cleaning, but it is always necessary. Provided that, it is during that time that we often come across things that we should and need to be letting go of.

Lady V’s Devotional Episode 

Romans 8:32 (TPT) says: 

For God has proved his love by giving us his greatest treasure, the gift of his Son. And since God freely offered him up as the sacrifice for us all, he certainly won’t withhold from us anything else he has to give. 

Romans 8:32 (TPT)

A father’s love is such a treasured gift to any child. And the Heavenly Father, gave us HIS greatest treasure in the gift of His Son.

God loves us more than we can fathom and we should never doubt that. Instead, let’s acknowledge that the sacrifice of HIS Son wasn’t an easy one—but it was necessary to save humanity.
