The Jesus Hearted Woman

The Jesus Hearted Woman

The Jesus Hearted Woman By: Tiffany Langford There is something so wonderful, and so beautiful about the woman who places her love for God above all others. In Him, her soul is made whole. She knows that the only one who can fill her heart is Jesus. She trusts Him with her whole heart. She allows His beauty to flow through her. The love of the Holy Spirit burns within her. She doesn’t desire to be like the rest of the world. Instead, she desires to be like her Jesus. She desires to chase after Him the rest of her life, and to tell others about the good news of Yahweh. She places her whole heart in His hands. She has desires, needs, wants and dreams, but she knows she can accomplish all things through Christ who strengthens her. She does not seek for man’s approval. She doesn’t go chasing after love, from heartbreak to heartbreak just to fill the void. When she feels heavy, she lays herself at His precious feet and breaks her alabaster box. She uses her tears to wash His feet, she pours her love out on Him, the one who saved her life time and time again. He was the one who protected her in her childhood, the one who rescued her, and carried her when she was broken and in pain. She pours her love out on her Master, the lover of her soul. She trusts the God of love to give her all the love she needs. Then if He sees fit when the time is right He will bring her prince into her life. But even when that time comes and she knows of that romance, she realizes that none but Jesus can rule her heart. She finds her worth in Him. In Him she moves and lives. In Him she is a new person. She knows she is treasured and beautiful, because of who her daddy is. She knows He is her healer, that He will never break her heart. When everyone else walks away, His love will be there to stay. And He will hold her in her brokenness. No matter where she goes in life, she knows that her Mighty Savior walks with her. He holds her hand when she is scared. He carries her when she cannot go any further. She is blessed, chosen, and treasured. She walks…

The Day I Decided to Let Go

The day I decided to let go

The Day I Decided to Let Go By: Tiffany Langford Life is so precious and short. Life is but a wind that passes before your eyes and if you’re not careful, you will totally miss it. I don’t want to miss it. I want to let the breeze flow through my hair. I want to laugh, cry, and feel something. There have times in my life that I have paralyzed with fear. When my daughter was born nine weeks early I became paralyzed me with fear. When I was touched by someone in a way I shouldn’t have been, I was paralyzed with fear. When I lost my grandpa, the man who had been like a father to me, I became paralyzed by fear. I was a broken little girl, with a broken past, from a broken home. For a long time I felt stuck in a rut, no one else seen my worth, so I thought it must be true, I’m worthless. I thank Jesus for the life he has given me. There have been so many times I’ve wanted to throw in the towel. So many times that honestly, I felt I had the right too, but his love propelled me forward. God carried me through my childhood. He saved me at a young age. He has always been my father. He has loved me and wiped every tear from my eye. He has taken my ashes and given me joy. He has given me the grace to forgive and move on. He has always been there for me and always protected me in ways my earthly mind can never comprehend. There comes a time in life where you have to just weep. Weep for the childhood you lost, weep your lost innocence, weep the memories, weep for the pain your heart felt for many, many years. But then you have to stand up, dust yourself off, wash your face, and move forward. The devil wants nothing more than to keep you in that place of solitaire and heartache. Then, you can’t move forward to everything good that God has for you. God has big plans for your life. It’s bigger than you and me. You can’t quit now. Everyday you get stronger. Yes there will be setbacks. There will be days that are harder, but you will overcome by blood of the lamb. Everything that was sent…

Why It’s Important to Pray for your Future Spouse

Why its important to pray for your future spouse

Why It’s Important to Pray for your Future Spouse By: Tiffany Langford I am currently working on a free e-book that I will be offering soon (subscribe to my website in order for it to go straight to your email-don’t forget to confirm subscription!) It will be a devotional on how to pray for your future husband. A question that I am asked often is, “Why is it important to pray for the person I will marry someday?” Before I gave my heart to Christ, I had never even heard of praying for my future husband, let alone waiting for him. But as I fell more and more in love with God, He began to reveal His will to me, that He could, given my cooperation, provide someone so much better for me than I could go out and find myself. I began writing letters to my future husband. I become okay with being single. I let God love on me, and I embraced the beautiful romance with my Jesus. Many times it become so hard, I wanted to do things my way, but praying for my future husband played a huge role in helping me wait for the one God had for me. Praying for your future husband/wife is the best thing you can do for them, even if you are still in your season of singleness. Prayer can change the entire course of history. When you decide to commit your ways to God and allow Him to bless you as He chooses, you are not only setting yourself up for blessings, but also for generations to come after you. Prayer connects you with that person, even if you do not know them yet. Praying for my future husband got me through the discouragement, and helped me to hold onto God’s promises for my life. I am so thankful that God cares about every single detail of our lives. There is nothing too small or inadequate for Him. The hopes and dreams you hold in your heart, God cares about. “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.” ~Psalm 37:4 Is anything too hard for God?

10 Scriptures to Pray Over Your Children

10 scriptures to pray over your children

10 Scriptures to Pray Over Your Children By: Tiffany Langford If you haven’t already, you can read about when my daughter was born here. My baby girl was born nine weeks early, and I truly believe prayers are what got us through the hardest time in our lives. I am a firm believer that pray moves mountains. Prayer can change an entire course of history. It’s important to pray for the well being of our children (or future children!) Cover your family in prayer from head to toe, then trust God to take care of them. Here are 10 of my favorite Scriptures to pray over your children. 1. “See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.” ~1 John 3:1~ Father, I pray that my children would know how much you love them. I speak blessings over their life, that they would fall more and more in love with you each day. I pray that they understand they are children of God, and that they will stand firm no matter what life throws at them, because they know they are loved by an almighty God. 2. “My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father – Jesus Christ, the Righteous One.” ~1 John 2:1~ Father, I pray that you protect my children from slipping. But when they do, I pray that they will understand your grace. Keep them from harm’s way and let them know they can rest in your love. 3. “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” ~ Romans 12:2~ Father, I pray that my children would stand out from the crowd. I pray that they would walk the halls of their schools wearing the name of your Son proudly, that they would be a light and example among their peers. Let them know that they do not have to fit into the crowd, but that you created them to stand out, you set them apart. 4. “Follow God’s example, therefore, as…

12 Scriptures to Pray Over Your Future Marriage

12 scriptures to pray over your marriage

Marriage is by far the most rewarding, yet most challenging task. My biggest mistake when I was waiting on God to send me the man He had for me was thinking that we would have it all together and everything would be perfect. Needless to say, I was very wrong. I knew the enemy would fight us, but I didn’t understand the degree to which he would. The devil has fought our marriage tooth and nail, because God has called us together for a divine purpose. The devil is against anything designed by God. For evidence of this just take a look at the state of marriage in our world today. Whether you are single and waiting, engaged, newly married, or have been married for 40 years, there are times when you have to take a stand against the enemy and intercede for your marriage. Tell the devil he CANNOT have your marriage. He is out to kill, steal, and destroy but we have the power of the Holy Spirit living on the inside of us. Even if we do not know or understand the issues our  spouse is facing, Romans 8:26 tells us that even when we don’t know what to pray, that the Holy Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings that words cannot express. Therefore, the Holy Spirit prays through us even when we do not understand what is going on in the flesh. That is why it is so important to get on our knees in prayer, that our carnal eyes would be opened to what is going on in the hearts of our spouse. If you are single, tell the devil he cannot take your God-given man off of his course to you. If you are married, put your foot down and tell the devil he cannot and will not steal your marriage. Marriage is a beautiful covenant between God, you, and your spouse. The best thing you can ever do for your partner no matter where you are in life is to pray for them. I am currently working on an e-book (Be sure to subscribe to get it sent directly to your e-mail) that will be a devotional on praying for your future spouse. Wherever you are in life, you can pray these scriptures over your marriage. I am a woman who deeply loves my man, and I want to be the praying wife that…

17 Things I Wish I Had Known Before Getting Married

17 Pieces of Advice For Anyone Who Wants To Get Married

Marriage is the most important decision you will ever make in life after giving your heart to God. It is the most challenging, yet rewarding task. Many of us  dream about getting married, yet often we fail to realize what it really takes to make a marriage work. When you recite the vows, for better or for worse, that is your covenant between God, your spouse, and yourself. God desires for us to work on our own hearts to prepare for all that He has in store for us. I love my husband dearly. We have laughed together, cried together, built dreams together, and hoped together. He has been my rock when I needed someone to lean on. Ultimately God is the glue that has held us together, but God also requires us to do our part. Here are 17 pieces of advice I would give to anyone who wants to get married. (Or already is) 1. Pray for your future husband/wife One simple prayer can change the entire course of history. James 4:2 tells us that we have not because we ask not. Pray for your spouse. Cover them in prayer from head to toe, because it will make all the difference. 2. Guard your heart Don’t jump from one relationship to another. Date with intention. Ask God if this person is right for you.  Don’t base a life altering decision solely on emotion. Fast, pray, and read God’s word. Get in tune with God’s voice to know what He is trying to tell you. Whatever God tells us we have to trust that his voice is for our better, not our worse. He will reveal who your spouse is in His perfect timing. 3. Don’t expect perfection. Unless you are perfect yourself, don’t expect perfection. There is a difference between setting your standards high and making them impossible to reach. Marriage is not a straight road. There are bumps, obstacles, and hills along the way. There will be good days, and there will be bad days. But if you lean on a God each day in your marriage, you can trust that everything will be alright. 4. Learn to become a godly spouse NOW Read God’s word on what a godly spouse looks like. Pray that you become the person your spouse needs you to be. Most importantly, build a relationship with God. Love on him, and let him love on you. Singleness is a precious season of your life…
