  Finish strong is more than a statement, it's an attitude. It's an attitude of believing you can do something and having the courage and determination to see it through. The difference in our success or failure is not chance, but choice. Because when adversity strikes, it's not what happens that will determine our destiny; it's how we react to what happens and what we do with it.

Take Your Umbrella to the Desert

I do have a prayer closet and like anything else I have to be in the midst of something to get a real feel for it, so having done that I have found new ways to accommodate my prayer closet in a way it makes it truly my space and the place I want to be. So in the next day I will be updating my youtube channel with a video  to show you the new look! This morning my husband sent me a text asking me if I had listened to Dutch Sheets "Give Him 15" podcast entitled "Remember to Bring your Umbrella." He said it reminds me of you.  So I listened to it as Dutch talked about a little girl who brought an umbrella to a prayer meeting in a place that had seen no rain.  The umbrella was her instrument of faith as a testimony that it would rain if she believed and prayed.  I will always remember the Lord telling me that my faith without my actions are dead. What He means is if I do not say and act as if those things I am believing for and praying for is happening, then its most li

Why can't we just quit calling out our differences in color and race? Children never care about any differences until someone points it out to them and tries to tell them negative things concerning their friend. Why don't we stop talking about it? And why don't we quit completing the forms that always ask us what race we are? You see the government tries to blame us for racism when they are actually the ones promoting it. I believe that for the most part we all want the same basic things in life and we should because our one creator created us all. We are more alike than you might think.  Why can't we just be friends, brothers and sisters, we the people, we are the world? There are so many beautiful unique things about each of us. Why can't we just celebrate one another? I know not everyone believes the same way I do, but many, many do. So there is still a whole lot of goodness in this world.

Creating a Prayer Closet

When you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father Who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you. Matthew 6:6. Come, my people, enter your chambers, and shut your doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until the fury has passed by. Isaiah 26:20 I like to play quiet soaking music from my laptop when I spend time with the Lord in here. For me it is a place to read, write, talk to Jesus to learn and to listen. Its your own personal space, make it what you wish for it to be. I'm calling upon all prayer warriors to be in prayer for our nation and our world. We need more and more people to be praying and to be praying for one another too. www.dianahudgins.com

God Gave Me the Holy Spirit

I wrote a year ago and I wanted to share it with you on this blog:  I am thankful for a lot of things in this day especially after spending a wonderful evening with the Lord last night. You know how we have often times wanted to be given a sign from God? Well, once upon a time several years ago God gave me a Dove. I have had birds before and I wasn't really wanting another. But at work one was sitting across the yard on the tail gate of our pickup. Hudg picked it up and put it in the bed of the truck and drove across the yard and into the shop. He told me to come see it. It let us pet it and feed it out of our hands and later it flew up to the top of the shop where we assumed it would stay until it flew out. The next day before quitting time Hudg said that I needed to come see my bird, it was still there and now sitting on the hose reel. Again it let us touch it and feed it. Well, that was it. I felt it was just too tame and friendly that I couldn't let it be so vulnerable to s

This pandemic has stolen so much from us and I believe that not everyone understands the extent of such losses. This isolation and mandates of pressuring us to do things that are not normal and not even healthy disrupts our routine of life. Routines are important. Not seeing smiles and even seeing people speak. It has been a long overdue season of mourning.  We have lost jobs, loved ones, lifestyles, many relationships and marriages have been damaged and destroyed. It has divided a world in beliefs. And then to see how this year is going just adds even more stress. No one has not in some way been affected. I admit to you it has been the most difficult year of my life. I did't loose anyone to COVID but I had several people most especially my father passed away in this year. I lost my job, I lost my daily routine of my lifestyle and we have lost 40% of our income. I found myself very isolated, lonely and depressed. A strong person I am but this has been hard.  Hard times have fell up

The battle belongs to the Lord. The victory is ours!

On my darkest days, when I feel inadequate, unloved and unworthy, I remember Whose daughter I am and I straighten my crown.  Lord, let me bring honor to Your Name. Wake up the sleeping giant of this nation. I am intoxicated in Your Great Love. My Lord, my savior, I am overwhelmed with Your hope and by Your presence. I am thankful that I am here for such a time as this. Unleash Your angelic host. We're about to experience the most awesome powerful warfare. You are the righteous God. I am picking up my shield and I will be loosed of the lies that held me down. I am putting on the battle shoes to march with the army of the Lord. I am picking up my helmet and putting it back on and believing that I am who God says I am. I am overwhelmed by the presence of God. I feel and I hear His voice. I can hear the terrifying roar of the lion of Judah tribe. The one that is the name above all names, that is seated on the throne. I can literally hear the urgency of the hour that we live in. All the
