JESUS TAKE OVER ME. – A PRAYER.

Jesus take over me today.

Take over my thought life, my mind, my spirit, my soul.

Take over the ways in which I think. Help me break the strongholds of my life today. Help me have a Godly perspective in everything I do today.

Help me to resist the enemy as the Bible says:

James 4:7
New King James Version
Humility Cures Worldliness

7 Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.

Help me to resist anger today as your word says:

Proverbs 14:29
English Standard Version
29 Whoever is slow to anger has great understanding,
but he who has a hasty temper exalts folly. (Foolishness).

Help me to not be fearful or have anxious thoughts today:

Isaiah 43:1
New King James Version
The Redeemer of Israel

43 But now, thus says the Lord, who created you, O Jacob,
And He who formed you, O Israel:
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by your name;


You are Mine.

Isaiah 41:10
New King James Version
10 Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’

You are my heart, you are my soul, you are my thoughts, you are my mind. I am nothing without you Jesus. So let me not do it without you today. Help me see you in things I usually miss with the busyness of life. Make my eyes aware of the Glory I miss day in and day out with stress and distractions.

Help me see your beautiful beauty in the little things, the wonderful nature you have created your wonderful works. And the wonderful transition from darkness to day break. ☀️ what a beautiful and marvelous God you are. I worship you because you are God. I exalt your name because you are above every other name.

Philippians 2:5-11

The Humbled and Exalted Christ

5 Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, being in the form of God, did not consider it [b]robbery to be equal with God, 7 but [c]made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. 9 Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Thank you Jesus for dying for me thank you for your precious gift I never deserved. Help me not to take advantage of it. Help me not receive it in vain today. I give you glory and honor for everything you’re going to do for me today. I pray that any one reading this today with me you tremendously bless today with your presence. Yes I pray they feel your precious presence all throughout the day today. Thank you Jesus in advance for everything you will do today that I have yet to see.

I love you and I exalt you!

In Jesus Christ’s MIGHTY name. I pray and I pray. Amen. ❤️

If I died today how will I be remembered?

Blessings in Christ Jesus my fellow ladies and believers.

The question I have for you today is; If you died today how will people remember you?

Would you be remembered as a bitter person or somebody with a bitter heart? Or would you be remembered as someone that was always ungrateful? Complaining and being stressed out all the time? How about an angry person that never really paid the time to smell the flowers 🌸 so to speak. This is a small thought of devotion today. That no matter what your going through today that JESUS. IS ENOUGH. I’ll say that again I said:

JESUS IS ENOUGH FOR YOU AND FOR ME FOREVER & EVER. ⭐️

Whatever your going through today. Tell and SPEAK to that situation and say. Jesus is enough for that problem, that stress, and that nervous breakdown I’m about to have.

He is enough. And I don’t know about you but I’m want to be remembered as somebody meek and humble! Someone that cared and loved on people. That always put others first and did her best in everything she tried doing. A Christ centered woman for her home and for her children. A Godly wife, one that didn’t complain all the time, a humble woman to her husband.

Yes, I fail daily. Yes many times I would like to throw it out the window. But BUT GOD! Reminded me of that saying today; if you died today how will you be remembered?

Let’s try reaching for it today! Like the saying goes “I rather die reaching, than not reach at all”

4 rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the [a]incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God. – 1 Peter 3:4

3 Likewise, wives, be subject to your own husbands, so that even if some do not obey the word, they may be won without a word by the conduct of their wives, – 1 Peter 3:1

26 My flesh and my heart fail;
But God is the [a]strength of my heart and my portion forever. – Psalms 73:26

I pray this encouraged you in some way today ❤️ God bless you. And I hope you enjoyed this devotional. God bless you might-fully today. In Jesus name I pray! – Amen.

YOUR APOSTOLIC MOM – WELCOME!!

Hello Guys! Welcome to my blog! Your Apostolic Mom!

I am an Apostolic Pentecostal Christian mother! I know very long title! (Haha). My purpose and vision for this blog is to inspire, motivate, and provide encouragement for you in every season of your mommy life!

Mom life can be very challenging at times (or all the time). Because there are such vast, vast sources of information out there. It is very easy to find yourself overwhelmed, not giving yourself enough grace, or comparing yourself to another mom whether it’s her looks, how organized she is while having kids, or everything else in between.

But God is so gracious and wonderful to us and loves us for how imperfect we are! I am here to encourage us (including myself) in the little things in life that we so often miss in the busyness of life! and I am hopeful to share the same grace and the words the Lord gives me in the day to day to hopefully encourage you too! ❤

A quick background story of how I started this blog. I felt the Lord put it on my heart since 2019. I am a new mom to my baby boy Ezekiel Rodriguez. He is my 2 year old son just turned 2 on August 3rd, where does the time go! With also my brand new baby girl which was born on August 12th 2020 yay!… As I was searching for information on Godly mommy advice from one Apostolic mom to another, I couldn’t find any. This led me to have a burden for all the new Apostolic moms or Christian mothers out there! And I hope I can be what I was looking for to you when I first became a mom. To share the things and lessons, I have learned so far and what the Lord has spoken to me through mothering my children.

Again, my desire is to be that voice and that light through the Lord Jesus Christ to you specifically Apostolic pentecostal moms but also Christian moms out there that need a word of encouragement as a mom, wife, and servant.

We are not perfect, but we are called to love God and love people!

So, I hope I can encourage any Christian mom out there not just a Apostolic Pentecostal one. You all have a friend in me, and you are not alone in this new or experienced walk of mommy life ❤

– Please let me hear about you & your story in the comments!

May the LORD bless you tremendously today!

With much love,

Selene Rodriguez
