Words cannot describe how blessed beyond belief I feel as a wake up this morning after a powerful move of God last night during our Freedom Friday service. I have suffered much, poured my heart and soul into the Lord and the ministry He entrusted to me, Broken Chains Ministries. My only passion is to see people rescued, delivered, saved and healed. It's not my intention to do church as usual. What the Lord did last night just blew my mind. The vision God threaded into my heart 4 years ago is manifesting by leaps and bounds...This entire week has been one big "suddenly" moment. It gives new meaning to the term "Godspeed". I'm humbled to my very core to be used by Almighty God in such a profound way...and I KNOW this is barely scratching the surface of the fullness God has for BCM/Oasis of Grace. My parents have labored HARD FOR MANY MANY YEARS, my children and I have been through hell and back 100 times over, I should have been dead several times over, BUT THE LOVING MERCIFUL ALMIGHTY GOD CARRIED US THROUGH and is now pouring out a blessing that is far beyond I could ever imagine and it's an unstoppable never ending flow from this moment on. We have TRUELY OVERCOME! Friends I want to encourage you; Galations 6:9
"So let's not ever get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don't give up."
Never give up on trusting God NO MATTER WHAT life throws at you! When you have Jesus in your life and in your heart "death" will never come to you you will never fail... EVER! no matter what it looks like! JESUS IS THE GREAT AND ONLY REDEEMER!
THank you to ALL my friends and family that have supported me and BCM! LOVE YOU ALL!

Look at this picture,  I found this as I randomly flipped through my Bible...
I've had this Bible for about 13 years...
This scripture was highlighted in April 2004 when I was going through one of the DARKEST hours in my life...
That dark hour lasted about six or seven YEARS AFTER I highlighted this scripture... And got worse instead of better during those years... I wanted desperately to end it and tried several times to kill myself... but the Lord wouldn't let it happen, He kept me until the time of my redemption was ready.
I constantly cried out to the Lord and stood on this scripture and others.
Finally the day came where I was set free and delivered...healed and restored. I was also able to forgive myself for all the harm and destruction and hurt I caused myself and my family during that time, as well as those who hurt me unimaginably.
As I look back I wouldn't change a thing.  God used those years to mold me and teach me, refine and prepare me to be who I am today, and who he calls me to be in the future.  
Friends don't EVER give up... EVER.
Let this story be of encouragement to you today. DO NOT give up! Continue to pray and cry out to the Lord and TRUST Him.  Stand on His foundation, the solid rock of the LIVING WORD,  the promises of the LIVING GOD who LOVES you more than anything and is FAITHFUL to you and will NEVER  leave you or forsake u...ever!

Let's make today a day of true forgiveness...
Unforgiveness hurts ourselves MUCH more than it hurts the ones that hurt us...
There IS A REASON WHY the Lord teaches us this...
"bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you." Luke 6:28
Hers why...
Hurting people hurt people...its a vicious cycle that gets worse and worse in the world as time goes on.
Unforgiveness keeps our own lives in bondage and Keeps us from receiving beautiful blessings that God has for us...
So be set free today...start by forgiving YOURSELF for all the "regrets" you may be carrying around like a ball and chain around your ankle..
Then forgive the one that is hurt you the most and go from there...
I guarantee you you will be amazed at how you feel and how your life changes after this.
"Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others." (Colossians 3:13 NLT )

JESUS IS LIFE...HE IS THE GIVER OF LIFE, THE RESTORER OF LIFE, THE HEALER THE DELIVERER... NOTHING IS TO DIFFICULT FOR HIM, NO SIN IS TO BIG FOR HIM TO FORGIVE. HIS LOVE IS UNCONDITIONAL AND NEVER ENDING....NO MATTER WHAT WE HAVE DONE... HE DIED SO THAT WE COULD HAVE LIFE...AS HE ROSE FROM THE GRAVE ON THE THIRD DAY...WE TO ROSE FROM DEATH WITH HIM. LET GOD RESTORE YOUR LIFE TODAY, LET HIM HEAL YOU BROKEN HEART, YOUR BROKEN LIFE, YOUR BROKEN SPIRIT. HE WILL DO IT...AND WE CAN HELP YOU GET THERE IF YOU'D LIKE. BUT YOU CAN DO THIS RIGHT NOW, AS YOU READ THIS...CRY OUT TO THE LORD AND ASK JESUS RIGHT NOW TO COME INTO YOUR LIFE, INTO YOUR WORLD AND SAVE YOU... "JESUS SAVE ME".... JESUS, HELP ME"..." LIVE IN MY HEART, BE WITH ME EVERY DAY IN EVERY WAY, GUIDE ME EVERY STEP I TAKE." "JESUS I NEED YOU NOW"...
I did this...and I my life went from literally being inches away from death..to ABUNDANT LIFE! And now I get the PRIVILEGED of helping others! Im blessed beyond measure every day of my life!

Ask The Lord today what he's trying to teach you through your trial... what does he wants you to know, see or understand... What is the goal that he wants you to accomplish through this trial? What is the game plan or strategy you need to follow to navigate through this time?
This is the prayer that needs to replace the agonizing prayer of ...WHY GOD!?!? WHY ARE YOU DOING T...HIS TO ME!?!... WHERE ATE YOU!?!?!!...
Instead try this...
Lord what are you trying to teach me through this trial? Lord open my eyes to see what you want me to see ...open my ears to hear what you're trying to tell me...show me what I need to know so I can grow... Most of all Lord give me the strength to learn...
Make yourself available to be taught instead of wasting time complaining, pouting or taking a tantrum...it only prolongs the lesson...
Here is the bottom line...
You can't get the blessin untill you learn the lesson...
God Bless you
Pastor Gina
