I Greet you in the name of Love and Forgiveness.

It is such a great day to Praise The Lord. To give thanksgiving to Him for All that He has already done for us. Let me tell you that God knows about and feels your pain, your hurt, your anger-your fears....He sees where you are--where you have gotten yourself to.

He IS your witness to the injustices that have been done to you and to others that we love-whether we know them personally or not-we love them. amen.

God is calling for a Cleansing of our hearts-There is an ALL CALL TO THE ALTAR OF YOUR HEARTS-In the Tent of Truth Where Jesus sits--It is time to be cleansed...many of you have been running from God our Father for a moment now--many moments for some others of you. You are not Adam, trying to hide from God thinking He can't see you. Because of this running, or other forms of disobedience, you have fallen, sunk into the deepness of shallow lies, fears, unforgiveness, and just plain not productive environments.

You have created for yourself Hostile Living Environments.

In which are many mazes and messes. Some of you are emotionally within these environments - in your mind and or physically. You cannot alter His plans for you--when you try to change what God has planned and started you on--you end up in mazes and messes. Following confusion, anger, hurt, and revenge by your hand to name a few of the signs in the mazes of messes.

Speaking seeds of negativity and watering them by always talking about your problems, who has done you wrong, blaming yourself for things you have done wrong in the past that you will not let go of. Walking on Emotions instead of Faith. Giving up on your walk and going back to doing things your way--when the way gets uncomfortable for a few moments.

You end up in a far away place from the warmth and love of God. It is cold there and you feel lonely. And instead of Now coming to Him -- some of you still begin to plot and try to figure out what you can do--moving deeper into the mazes and messes.

You cannot do any changes by yourself. In order to live within the positive changes of your choices, you have got to first choose to change your thinking about yourself and God.

Many of you are within Hostile Living Environments not by your own hand. God sees all-He knows this also. And there Is a way made for your escape. It starts by having the strength and courage to change your thinking. By being tired of being tired. Are you there yet?

Watering a garden of weeds and telling everyone that you have roses.

Let us come humbly, in the name of Jesus before the Lord to thank Him for His Holy Spirit that guides us and comforts us as we walk "through" all the challenges, issues, problems, situations, hindrences, and circumstances that are sitting and waiting on our paths as we continue to, by faith Walk On day at a time. Enjoying life in abundance everyday!

I really want you to get there.

'There', being the seat of inner Peace because He is Love and you dwell with Him. 'There' being, Joy no matter what comes your way--or who says what, who does what, or doesn't do what. 'There' being, a fullness and overflow of self love and self acceptance and a wholeness from receiving the Love of God, that you understand and hold tightly too- the place of no worry, no concerns over what pops up, what lies ahead, how it is going to get done and who is going to help.

I really want you to get "THERE". I need you, and there are others that are in need of what God has planted in your garden. We are all connected and dependent upon one another. amen.

Let us enter His gates with thanksgiving to be cleansed of everything that does not please Him and is a hinderance to our forward movement.

Father, in the name of Jesus I come to You with a grateful heart for I cannot serve myself and You at the same time. I want to thank You for revealing to me in my own heart the places where I am motivated by selfish ambition--this type of motivation is a hinderance to my freedom in Your Spirit.

I do not want to be full of the idolatry that is rampant in many Christian circles as I know You will bring that tower down and remove it from existance.
I want to be moved forward in Your purposes set in place for my life, any double-mindedness is a position of rebellion and will prevent me from receiving the fullness of Your blessings for my life. To You, Father God Be The Glory, in the name of Jesus-the name of Love. amen.

Philippians 2:3-4

"Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others."
In the Amplified Bible it reads this way:

"Do nothing from factional motives [through contentiousness, strife, selfishness, or for unworthy ends], or prompted by conceit and empty arrogance. Instead, in the true spirit of humility(lowliness of mind) let each regard the others as better than and superior to himself [thinking more highly of one another than you do of yourselves]. Let each of you esteem and look upon and be concerned for not [merely] his own interests, but also each for the interests of others."

The Word of God is filled with inherent power.

When He speaks things change and never return to Him empty or void.

God has spoken everything that He is going to speak. He has already done everything He is going to do for us. It is up to us to believe what He has said. The promises of God are for anyone who will believe them and act accordingly. Many of us now have or have had, in our life unpleasant facts that have occurred. Many people are emotionally wounded, hurt, bitter, in pain, angry, full of strife and just mad at the world and at God.

Gods Truth is over any facts. We may experience negative facts in our lives But God's Word is truth, and truth is more powerful than facts.

Jesus is Truth and if you have accepted Him as your savior and you call to Him, He will walk right up to the brokeness of your life-in your heart-where ever there is brokenness in your life--He will call forth Love and Truth and Life, just as He did with Lazarus in the tomb. (Isa 55:11; Jer 33:3)

Various personality disorders will develop from the result of years of abuse-of living in a dysfunctional environment.

While in these environments, people are filled with the sour attitudes, the bitterness and the unforgiveness that others speak over them and into them. Other people's thoughts and words spoken from pain and self hatred can shatter a life that is so precious and in need of love.

You can't get what someone does not have to give--you can't give what you don't have.

God compares His Word to Seed. We all plant the seeds by speaking it, praying it, believing it and acting upon it. What grows--what we think and say is what is produced.

If you are speaking words of faith, confessing His truths concerning who you are to Him and His love for your life, sharing your testimony and trust in God, you will produce a postive abundant harvest that will feed many. We will be given what we sow - the fruits of our words are our harvest.

This is the power of His Word over our lives that He has spoken--the outcomes are positive and the struggles, we realize have been the greatest of help for our forward movement.

Things change, The Word of God will water our lives and the results will bloom.

Then there are situations that cannot be changed because of the thoughts and words that have been planted into our hearts by others or ourselves. These negative seeds will also be watered and will grow and produce blooms that re-seed the ground of our hearts. This creates a cycle of stunted growth and what does grow is rotten, spoiled and dead. It helps no one.

At times we may choose to not see what is right in front of us. The dynamics of our personal choices, our conveniences and the way that our pride had taken us by. When our hearts are hardened, things become set in our lives. When our minds are locked into the belief that there is not other way, the belief that you are not good enough, the seed is taking root and producing offshoots that spread. Killing everything that is good and meant to give you growth and maturity for your life.

All of this affects the movement of positive change that comes through the Love of Jesus--and the situations will not, cannot be changed. All of this takes work by you. You have to want to change--you have to work at it everyday. This process is not impossible-but it may be uncomfortable at times, but this too shall pass.

Whose voice are you listening to?
In the many mazes and messes of this world, there are many voices, yet the Lord's voice is distinctive and clear. For me, He is the author and finisher of my life. I had to learn by wanting to see and hear His truths that revealed the boundries that I had set Him in. Which creates limits on the work He needed to do in me and wanted to do for me. I was stopping my own growth and maturity. It is a process that is fueled by my desire to want to be changed and to know Him intimately.

He calls and many claim Him also, but the strength of the communication that they allow is limited by their lack of understanding and knowledge of God and His ways. They will not give up what they hold for fear that He will not be there. They will not let go of the past to grab the present and the future. They will not stop relying on material gain and outer looks to justify them. It is about their power and their glory.

He will communicate with you but not according to your goodness--that has too many limits and mazes. It will be by His goodness that as the new sun rises each day so does His mercy begin to rain down on the earth. It is also in that morning hour when His judgements on our wrong steps and the other voices that have led us there will begin to uncover the lies and dark goings on.

When you gain spiritually maturity you know about both His judgement and His mercy. His tender mercy new every morning that keeps us from being consumed. His sure judgements free us from the Hostile Living Environments which are part of the self-made wildernesses, where we wander around without any moisture or substance-further and further away from the plan that He set into place. Further away from hearing His voice.

When the time of God's choosing comes, His Spirit will cease to contend--which will leave many a man to himself as the Lord sends judgement upon situations, choices, conveniences, pride, hard hearts, stubborn rebellious minds, and wrong seed grown.

Whose voices are you listening to? The voices of people from your past? Voices from people that used love to trap you? The voices of your own heart that tell you how you messed up? the voices of taunts, and oppresion at the hands of others? The voices of your enemy-our enemy? The voices of people in your life who should have loved you and encouraged you -but instead spoke hate and falsely blamed you for being?

Call on God to speak His love into you and to restore your brokeness. Make up your mind to change your mind. Choose to step forth with what ever amount of courage and faith you have and start walking on the water and see how quickly the doors of heaven will open and Jesus will rain down His passion over you.

He said, Come as you are-I will take you and love you!

God Is Good!
