What a wonderful day it is!
I Hope that you have had a Spirit Filled, Joyous past few days.
Remember, just because the actual day to Celebrate Jesus' birthday has past, doesn't mean The Miracles have ceased.

Now that the excitement associated with preparing for Christmas Day has passed, you may be feeling let down, and back to the same old same old. If so, then you may not know and understand the full meaning of the Celebration of His precious birth, nor grasp the ‘all healing’ of God's Love for sending Jesus here for us.

It is time for a simpler life. Making sure that you are firmly in the foundain that God gave us, and are consistantly seeking His Face and presence. Faith is what will get the people of God through the lean years that we are within. Getting through these lean times will take using all the Gifts of God's Spirit, and learning and using all the teachings of Jesus.
Humbling oneself and letting go of what is no longer needed in your life, what is not working anymore, what you should not have bought or allowed in your life in the first place and then in the spaces that these items will leave behind, Jesus can stregth out and occupy more of you. Growing deeper and stronger into His purpose for your life. Amen.
As people are gearing up to celebrate the New Year-this is a time when they make all these lists-goals and marks of completion for certain changes and growth that they want in their lives. Then they put different amounts of time-thoughts and decisions into doing everything on these lists, and pretty soon the desire to fulfill what they said they want falls to the wayside.

It seems not many people put on their “I want a better me” list; #1-to Allow Jesus to Save them and becoming one of His Followers and a Worker for God. #2 allowing the spiritual growth to take place in order to strengthen their wisdom, knowledge and understanding of the purpose they were put here for. #3 allowing God to heal them from all wounds, pain, hurt, and sins. #4 Continuing all of the above and more, Everyday.

A lot of people want to sit in church on Sundays, volunteering for so many committees, and donate some used clothes-and for them, this is enough to be dressed in good works and they feel that is all they really have to do to be a Christian. They may really love Jesus and God and really want to be right. But, they are only fooling themselves and God knows. And so do a few other people that know and understand what Good faith works and being fruitful are all about. There are many of God’s people that have a relationship with Jesus and are growing and producing good fruit.

Being busy thinking you are helping people and checking off your list of good Christian works is not always being fruitful.
The difference is great, between being busy and living a fruit producing life as Jesus said He chose us to be and do. This requires that we use everything that God has given us and continues to give us to be fruitful every day. We have The Gifts of the Spirit. Gal 5:22-23. I wonder how many lists these get put on.

Making up your mind—making a decision to be fruitful will bring forth the beginning of many positive opportunities and changes.

Making decisions of any kind, small large, simple, or complicated-they all mark the beginning of multiple changes. This is when some work, effort, courage, strength, wisdom, understanding and spending more time with God comes into position. Spending more time with God means to read and learn His Word, and spend time talking with Him. Telling Him what is on your mind and heart.

When people’s decisions lead to specific changes that are not what they desired to have-they never seem to go back to the point of origin. Back to themselves and how their flawed motives lead to flawed decision creating flawed changes that lead to a more burdened life. Many of the people that fall into this mindset are Christians that don’t seem to be growing at all in their spiritual maturity. I know that we are all at different places of our learning and journeys, but I am speaking about Christians that are plain stopped-no forward, inner growth at all.

They ‘got saved’ and stopped. Now they sound like Christians and they look like some—but they are not living by The Word. They can spout off any scripture from memory—you know those types? But their Walk with Jesus is not balanced by how they are living. No good fruit is being produced. We are to live in order to take people with us. They may be making sure a few don’t get in by the way some Christians live.
I come across so many people that speak out that they are ‘Saved’ by Jesus-and how much they love Him, and are not in relationship with Him.

How can I tell? By The Fruit that they offer. Listen to them when they tell you about anything in their life. They have this sadness in their voices—almost like drudgery.
If they start off listing their problems, then move on to the people that caused the problems, then the people through their life ‘that have done them wrong’, and the people they helped in the Name of Jesus and those people ‘done them wrong’. How their children will not act right and their life partner will not act right. How they think they look and what’s wrong with their looks or body, or how they hate their job or want a job, how they want a list of material things but don’t have the income to provide those ‘things’.
They sit in church and gossip, they create false truths concerning those they are jealous of, and try to make divisions and problems where none exists. They go to church looking for a man or a woman but it’s not Jesus!

Yes, they very well may have gone through the motions of being Saved but they are stuck at the beginning thinking, ‘getting saved’ was all they had to do to have the better life that Jesus teaches about. The same Good Life that they hear other Christians talk about. They also make a mistake of looking at other Believers and basing their knowledge of God on “how “ these other believers look and what they drive and where they live. Many people know how to dress themselves up in good deeds and attention getting clothes. But what lives in their hearts? Good fruit-or spoiled rotten fruit?

When in fact, many of these other people may or may not be Christians, and nobody really knows how people get the material things they do. And that is not the point of relationship with Jesus in the first place.

They do not realize that Jesus came here to Save us from our SIN—Not from our Problems. In Fact, He said that the world is full of troubles and hurt, and for us not to fear, nor lose hope-that He has already conquered this world.
He came to heal the wounds, pains and hurts that live in each of our heart—not to heal your credit or your relationship with another person when you will not allow Him to heal and save you first.
We always think it’s the other person huh.

But you must have a relationship with Jesus to be moved toward and reap that Good Life that He teaches about. You have to be disciplined and use self-control in order to go to God with any and every dilemma you need to settle and ask Him what decision is best for you to make.
Then you have to do what He tells you to do.
Now, the changes will begin to happen and the desired outcome likely will be in much of what God does for you. Make a note-when you put things in God’s hands, and you leave them with Him- He Always Gets Good From It. Amen.

Are you sensitive to God’s presence in your life?

He silently teaches us-His children-those of us that answered ‘YES’. His silent teachings depend upon how we approach Him each day.
He teaches us to allow Every discipline, every joy, every difficulty, every fresh interest to serve to draw us nearer to Him. Let it all serve to make us more sensitive, more spiritually mature, more spiritually aware of His presence.

It is the beginning of being sensitive to Him that opens the door to the Joy He gives us. He wants us to realize that we are a tool in His hands—an instrument that He plays and with such-when we are surrendered to Him-sensitive to Him we allow Him to play the most sweetest harmony through us. We are changed by the decisions that we make.

So many are they who refuse and fail to hear Him. They may think that God is far off away. He is always ever ready to speak to them, but they have missed the power of discipline, the wonder of communion with Him.

“For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure.” Phil 2:13

When sitting and reflecting over your past year—let go of things that did not work. For whatever reasons they didn’t; don’t ponder too long, just let them go.

If you are to pick certain projects up again, then Pray on it and allow God to guide you. Remember, we all go through the transitions from being led by our natural emotional self-to being led by our spiritual self. It is a transition that some people have a hard time passing through.

There are a few phases and stages of the transition. He takes us through each part when He knows we are ready. You learn to Prove Him concerning different parts of your life when He brings it to your focus. Or you don’t and you end up going back around not letting go—not learning- not changing. If you like to drag things out-keep being stubborn. If you really are tired of yo-yo-ing between doing things yourself and thinking that God is doing them for you—then you will allow Him to teach you and you will begin to trust and have faith in Him more often without even thinking about it.

People do not ask God what they should do when they don’t know what to do at the beginning of a thing. They come to HIm with the messed up results of the decision they made wanting Him to fix things.

There are two forces that will ensure you daily (one day at a time) success from living faithfully. Work and Prayer. Our work and His work.

For prayer I speak of a believing prayer. Prayers and Praises spoken with faith. Faith that knows He Can and He Will. This is based on the Certainty that Jesus is working for you, and with you, and in you. This is not about you trying to make something work one day and then when it does not—you hand it over to Jesus and when He gets it to a point you come back to take it over again—no, that will never work.

I encourage you to go forward with gladness and joy; unafraid-Jesus is with you.
Relying on other people your tasks will be impossible to complete, but with Jesus All Things Are Possible.

You are not tired of the work, you may be tired from your work. REST in His faithfulness and His healing. Be re-stored, replenished, rejuvenated.
Use the gifts of the Spirit and produce fruit from your faith work. Not just being busy doing faithless works with the wrong motives.

We are told in John 4:35, “Do you not say, it is still four months until harvest time comes? LOOK! I tell you, raise your eyes and observe the fields and see how they are already white for harvesting.”

I know a lot of people Love God—they just have their priorities messed up. They may be overly occupied and too busy—distracted from God’s Work because they are focused on their work, or their outer image, or any other emotional desire they allow to pull them away from spending time with God.

They are not living with and in God’s purpose for them. It is conscious work to transition from walking an emotional ‘I feel’ life- to walking in the Spirit and being led by the Spirit. Changes have to take place—and we have to allow them to happen and look forward to all the glory they will bring for God through our lives.
It is a choice-a decision that each of us has to make and then stick to it.

To be ready to show His love with or without words for the believer and the non believer. This is being fruitful. You may not convince each person that you meet at first, but dropping a few seeds in them, watering the seeds they have or bringing them on in—which ever the case may be—we need to be prepared. We never know when God will send us a person we know, or a stranger to help. Living a life that is full of the Fruit of The Spirit.

Have you ever thought about how God feels when so many people have troubled hearts and speak with deep anguish? His heart must ache with sadness when He witnesses such conditions that people’s lives are in.

If God should behold the places, cities, towns, villages, countries, houses and homes and weep over them all because He sees such troubled hearts.
Do you suppose He weeps because He is full of pity for them or that He may be weeping because these lives seek to live without His sustaining power?
That He is thinking if they would only come to Me so that they may have life.

His Work is our Work.
Think on your past year and remember to let go of what did not work-and whatever you have that you are still in the middle of—give it over to God and let Him correct the plans and help you make the decisions that are best for you, your life and every one in and around your life.
He wants you to be a blessing every time.

If you make a New Year’s list this year, think about including Him and His work as First on your list of things that you need to change in your life. This is how to ensure that as soon as you put Him as number one in your life and KEEP Him Number one in your life—you will see and be changed right away.

Remember, every decision that you make is the beginning of multiple changes. Are you including God to help you make the best decisions for the situation and for your life? You already know what happens when you go it alone.

Whose lifestyle are you trying to live? Get your priorities in order.
To Live in a lifestyle of giving, forgiving, helping, loving, and of faith.

To walk in the Fruit of The Spirit, you must spend time with God-this keeps us balanced spiritually and in the natural.
God Is Glorified When We Bear Good Fruit! John 15:8

My HOPE for you is that you recieve the gift that keeps on giving=the Love of God, Jesus.

When I gave my life to God in the name of Jesus on March 21 2002, and then at the moment I began to follow my Brother Jesus, I knew with the next breath I drew, that I was a Whole Person.

Even though I knew there was much work to continue, and that some things can and will be a struggle that He wants to teach me as He remolds me; even with all the work that He needs to do, I knew I was a Whole Person because of His Love.

I was waiting for the return of one, waited for over two years for this one to return to me-and me her. She was not able to return to Us. So I talked to my Father and I told Him, that I understood that His Spirit was telling me I had to let her go—let all that we cherished go-into His hands into His heart because she could not return to Us.

I then told my Father, if she is not able to return to me and we be together for all the days that you give us on this earth-take care of her, and please send me the person, the woman, the heart that You have chosen for me to love, and to love me the one I am to grow old with for all our days that You give us on this earth and into eternity.
And So He did what I asked of Him.

My will became His Will and I received the Love that He knew was and is best for me and for the heart of the woman He sent to me. We have a new Us!

I love the Way God will put some things and some people together-He always gets Good from Everything He is involved in! Amen.

I was made Whole at the moment of surrendering my natural life to Him—He Who created me. Who better to complete what He started. After looking and trying on other peoples love, trying to make it fit me and mine to fit them-- I found that all the other people I thought could make me Whole – could not. And that I could not make any of them Whole either.
I had nothing to do with creating them-And they had nothing to do with my being alive in the first place. I understood that no human could make me Whole because that Position, that Power, that Authority, that Builder, that kind of Divine Love had to be from the One that began me.

And the beginning of my being made Whole was at the point where I started to forgive myself and then to unconditionally love myself. Just as God made me, not loving the person that everyone in my life wanted me to be and not be, not what society said I should be and not be, not the person that ‘I’ thought I should be and tried to mold myself to fit into-that small narrow ‘thought’ of who I should be.

But my Wholeness came from my accepting who I was Purposed to Be. When I took my hands off of myself, I became a Whole Person. Thank You Jesus.

This is when I accepted my Fathers UnconditionaLove for me—I Was Made Whole by the Love of our Father God through His Love for Jesus.

I then realized how my life had been changed and whole heartedly confessed that I now dwell in God’s Possibilities-His Purposes for me—I came to Him broken in so many pieces—wounded in heart, soul and spirit and His Love took me up and held me close to Him as His Love began the process of mending my cracks-remolding the malformed parts of me and His love shined be up and gave me a fearless confidence…..Every Day I dwell in The Fathers Possibilities and In His Purposes for my life.

When you allow His Love to heal your wounded heart, soul and spirit,; then you will know that it is only with the Right Heart that you can clearly see what is essential that is invisible to the eye.

What is to be cherished and loved as priceless, cannot be known in the mind but must be felt in the heart.

I was made Whole before my Father brought her-this new partner into my life. He had made her Whole before He brought me into her life.
And together, “we be twice as strong and we be twice as sure and we will have us twice as much of love and everything.”

On the morning of this Miraculous Season that is upon us, I was once again awaken by His Love and Purpose for me. This morning as with most mornings, He woke me up so that I can meet and greet the Glory of Him before It arrived.

I turned over and looked at the peacefulness that dressed my beloved’s face and I began to speak a poem to her that I learned many years ago.

When I met my beloved and her daughter, I read this poem and thought to myself then, it is such a good fit.

I last heard myself speaking this poem over 2 years ago in my art classroom to my Art I students, as I directed them through this project that I created on how to read a poem, how to understand what the poet was conveying and how to illustrate a poem.

She awoke to the love pouring from my heart, escaping through my mouth; “I be bringing you a whole heart”, is what I said to my beloved. And the warmth that raced through my body brought such a strengthening to my love for her—and I knew that I love her more today than I did yesterday.

This inspiration sent me to get up and find this book of poems by Mari Evans and to read the entire poem to her.

And now I am inspired to share this all with all that visit this Place of Quiet Encouragement.

I welcome you to share in the Love that made me a Whole Person.
Have you received Your invitation yet?
Have you opened it and RSVP’d yet?

I have always loved Mari Evans’s work. She is one of the most overlooked and under recognized amazingly gifted women writers that God has placed on this earth to be a voice for the people.
Here is the entire poem that His Spirit put in my heart and on my mind when He woke me this morning.

Here is the poem that inspired me to write this post. ENJOY!

by Mari Evans

I will bring you a whole person

and you will bring me a whole person

and we will have us twice as much

of love and everything

I be bringing a whole heart

and while it do have nicks and

dents and scars,

that only make me lay it down

more careful-like

An’ you be bringing a whole heart

a little chipped and rusty an’

sometime skip a beat but

still an’ all you bringing polish too

and look like you intend

to make it shine

And we be bringing, each of us

the music of our selves to wrap

the other in

Forgiving clarities

soft as a choir’s last

lingering note our

personal blend

I will bring you someone whole

and you will bring me someone whole

and we be twice as strong

and we be twice as sure

and we will have us twice as much

of love

and everything

Poems by Mari Evans 1992

My sisters and brothers, let us find the Joy that lives within us, let us find the desire that is within us to seek His comfort and companionship that He Who Is Love so deeply desires us to have.

I Encourage you to place your hearts, souls and spirits into His Will so that all that has given you the wounds you have will not be able to keep them from healing anymore.

Let us live within His Love so passionately, so full of dedication, so full of the desire to be changed; that nothing is born in us and nothing comes forth from us unless it is His Love.

my HOPE is that you recieve the gift of Encourage that i offer to you. To help you Continue to persevere and be committed to living the Faith that pleases Jesus and that will be the catalyst that brings forth the Courage to Change.

In The Name Of Emmanuel Let us strive to be more Christ-Like and to always preach the Gospel and if needed, you can use words.

Resting In His Faithfulness,
One Day At A Time By Faith.

And He Walks with me and He Talks with me, and He guides and teaches me each day that I faithfully expect Him-He Is! Amen!

Come On—sing it with me—you know you want to! It will stir your heart--

John 15:15 Amp
I do not call you servants (slaves) any longer, for the servant does not know what his master is doing (working out). But I have called you My friends, because I have made known to you everything that I have heard from My Father. [I have revealed to you everything that I have learned from Him.]

A miracle needs no explanation to those who believe in God; to those who don't, no explanation is enough.

Isaiah 7:14 Amp
Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign: Behold, the young woman who is unmarried and a virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel [God with us].

Luke 1:30-31 Amp
30And the angel said to her, Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found grace ([a]free, spontaneous, absolute favor and loving-kindness) with God.
31And listen! You will become pregnant and will give birth to a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus.

"It is easy for the Lord to save a sinner, but it is impossible for a self-righteous man to be saved."

Matthew 19:20-30 (Amplified Bible)
20The young man said, I have observed all these from my youth; what still do I lack?
21Jesus answered him, If you would be perfect [that is, [
a]have that spiritual maturity which accompanies self-sacrificing character], go and sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have riches in heaven; and come, [b]be My disciple [side with My party and follow Me].
22But when the young man heard this, he went away sad (grieved and in much distress), for he had great possessions.
23And Jesus said to His disciples, Truly I say to you, it will be difficult for a rich man to get into the kingdom of heaven.
24Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to go into the kingdom of heaven.
25When the disciples heard this, they were utterly puzzled (astonished, bewildered), saying, Who then can be saved [[
c]from eternal death]?
26But Jesus looked at them and said, With men this is impossible, but all things are possible with God.(
27Then Peter answered Him, saying, Behold, we have left [our] all and have become [
d]Your disciples [sided with Your party and followed You]. What then shall we receive?
28Jesus said to them, Truly I say to you, in the new age [the [
e]Messianic rebirth of the world], when the Son of Man shall sit down on the throne of His glory, you who have [become My disciples, sided with My party and] followed Me will also sit on twelve thrones and judge the twelve tribes of Israel.
29And anyone and everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or lands for My name's sake will receive [
f]many [even a hundred] times more and will inherit eternal life.
30But many who [now] are first will be last [then], and many who [now] are last will be first [then].

Live your life in a praise filled and thankful mode, not a WhaTaBOUTmE? Mode. THANKSLIVING!

1 Corinthians 9:16-19 Amp
16For if I [merely] preach the Gospel, that gives me no reason to boast, for I feel compelled of necessity to do it. Woe is me if I do not preach the glad tidings (the Gospel)!
17For if I do this work of my own free will, then I have my pay (my reward); but if it is not of my own will, but is done reluctantly and under compulsion, I am [still] entrusted with a [sacred] trusteeship and commission.
18What then is the [actual] reward that I get? Just this: that in my preaching the good news (the Gospel), I may offer it [absolutely] free of expense [to anybody], not taking advantage of my rights and privileges [as a preacher] of the Gospel.
19For although I am free in every way from anyone's control, I have made myself a bond servant to everyone, so that I might gain the more [for Christ].

I have to share some truth - freedom with all of you. And before I begin I want you to know, that I know—Many of You feel just like I do.

Now, Take Your Seat-Class is about to Start! Amen.

I have to thank all the people that have rejected me for one narrow and blinding reason or another. I want to thank the people that speak harshly – bearing false witness against me and mine-I want to thank the people that leave me out of their gatherings and meetings, I want to thank all the people that cast this stone to the side.

For without any of you people, I would not be as strong as I am today. I would not love my LORD Jesus as deeply as I do today.
Had I tried to get you to like me and accept me by compromising myself and my integrity I would be less than you for doing so. I am able to accept you with your faults, shortcomings, lack, immaturity, and your mis-education about the Love of Jesus—But you are not able to do the same with me and mine.

I understand that you either don't know or that, you know and refuse to accept the Fact, that We belong to the Same Father, Son and Holy Ghost. We are all at different places of our Journey with Jesus and our Spiritual growth and maturity are at different places.

You have taken your free will and chosen to use it to reject, refuse, and to hate the Creations and the Children of God our Father.

I forgive you whole heartedly in the name of Jesus.

I have to thank you, for just as Jesus was born on the outskirts of town and died on the outskirts of town, so have you people pushed me and mine to the outskirts of town.

I have never felt that I fit in – all my life I wondered why I don’t feel like I fit in.
Now at the age of 46, I must confess that I realized years ago that God never intended for me to fit in with the groups of people who narrowly and blindly go about their days, living in shallow thinking that they have arrived at their destination-basing their self-worth and their value on material gain, human acceptance and human status, on the love of power instead of the power of Love, and by self-centered cultural standards and your legalistic religious laws that strangle the life out of a person.

THANK YOU for not allowing me to come into your little groups and sup with you. I still have love for you and I bless the name of The Lord for your welfare. For by you moving yourselves out the way—Room has been made in order that the People He has Called to fellowship with me and me them, To Step Forth and Be Recognized.

See, My value is not based on your ideas, standards and shallow ways of living in and by fear.
My inner wealth has already been determined by the birth, life, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus, The Messiah!
God has already validated my life through Jesus My Lord.

Thank You Father-I Get It! Amen!

Those of you that measure your success through outward wealth and power will always be unhappy, unfulfilled and will always come up short to reach the mark set forth by your plans and desires-attempted by your manipulative selfish, and fearful ways.

I am led by the Spirit of God-The Spirit of Truth; not by my own will, plans and desires based on what I see that the world has to offer.

Without His Anointing poured over and into you—your natural wealth and limited power mean absolutely nothing.

I am not building my Vision on your opinions concerning anything. You have nothing to do with the Glory that belongs to Father God.
I am building my Visions on the Faith that God Will complete In me AND through me, what He has started. You have started nothing good with me-so why do you worry about what God is doing through me for those that seek Him?

I have a clear understanding of the human heart. People will ‘feel like’ approving me today and tomorrow will outright reject me.
Your cultural standards do not determine my value—I go by The Christ Standard for that. I do not use things to prove my self-worth. Whether I have things or not I am already Valuable and Important to God-the One Who has Called me by His name.
People – humans have nothing to do with the Promises that God has spoken into my Spirit.

I made up my mind a long time ago to be happy no matter What condition I am in.

I have the Audacity to Preach and Spread The Gospel of Jesus Christ, and sometimes I use words. I have the audacity to hold on to the Visions and Dreams that The Father has spoken into my heart and spirit because I Know that He Is going to bring them all to pass. He has shown me the End of the Things first—Now I am on my way to achieving them All in the name of Jesus!

I thank you people for pushing me and mine out of your systems — so many Great and Mighty things and people have come from outside your systems of shallowness, greed, oppression and fear.
God Does Good and Great Works in the Strangest Places. Who would ever imagine that His One and Only Son would be born in a cave to store animals in- and be placed in an animal feeding trough at that? AMAZING!

So just as God hid Mary, Joseph and Jesus out in an obscure cave—so He has set me aside, out of the daily eyes of people to be used as His vessel.
**Hint (I’m not the only one you know.)**

My circumstances do not scare me or intimidate me. They will not diminish the Glory that belongs to The Father through my life—I will not disobey Him because of your rejection or my circumstances at this moment of my life. I have the Audacity to Beleive Him.

I shall keep my Gifts and Visions hidden while they Grow, Mature, gain in strength, wisdom, understanding and anointing. Till He reveals His Work in me to those that want to see.

**Hint (I’m not the only one you know)**

I understood a very long time ago that Everyone cannot go with me where I am going—and I cannot go with everybody where they are going!—everyone that wants to follow me and pat me on the back is not my friend either.

So I thank you for closing doors and for thinking that you had stopped me, because you don’t see me out and about anymore! LOLOLO

God put Jesus where I can reach Him—and I am extremely grateful to Him for this gift. I really am grateful to you for not showing love to me and mine -- for God used all the closed doors as a path to direct my steps right to the places that He divinely set forth for me to follow! I Am Still Here—Thank You Jesus.
AND all the while I have gained wisdom, knowledge, understanding, strength, trust, faith and love because I ran to My Father-The Great I Am!

Jesus is my friend and I am His friend.

And even though you dislike me and do everything in your little power to shut me out – I THANK YOU, for I have no desire to be like you anyway-nor to join in with your shallow way of life. I don’t have to be around you or answer to you—I can love you from afar until you come to Him completely convinced and converted.

I have to show God’s love-not just talk about it as you people do.

I do not hate you—I know that is what you want—but I am not able to be that way—it is just not in me to hate. Actually I pity people like you and I pray the Father help you in every way that you require in the name of Jesus. Allow Jesus to teach you how to love yourself and to provide you with understanding of just how valuable you are to Him.

I have a model to follow and who accepts me just as I am.
I build my Visions on the Promises that God made to me.

It would do your heart, soul and Spirit a lot of good if you did the same for yourself. Give your self the Gift that Keeps On Giving=GODS LOVE! A Life Lived for Jesus! Amen!

Isaiah 55:1 Amp
1WAIT and listen, everyone who is thirsty! Come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Yes, come, buy [priceless, spiritual] wine and milk without money and without price [simply for the self-surrender that accepts the blessing].(A)

To be a good teacher, one has to be a good student.
There is no other way to become a good teacher other than to live a Truthful Life!

To be so inspired by His purpose for my life for this day, Excites me! I was awakened by His Love and I stayed quietly in His presence seated in His Holy Temple, I am hushed, listening to what the quiet speaks to my heart and soul.

I am warmed in His Love, before the changes that He has spoken forth that the day begin. I lay until He excites my spirit so deeply that I could no longer stay in bed, but had to get up. As the children are still sleep, the quietness that lives in the night is still being pushed off to make room for the sounds of the light as the sun steps forward to take center stage once more-another day Lord, thank You.

My spirit is full of expectancy, I had to get out of bed and begin to allow the love I have for Jesus to come forth from the deepness of my soul out of my mouth—I had to get out of bed and begin to praise Him. I tried to stay in bed, we have nowhere to go, it’s Saturday and the sun had not even begun to show itself yet—but I didn’t want the birds to out praise me this morning.

The girls’ school is closed for Christmas, beloved is home as her college has closed for Christmas. I thought to myself-this is a perfect morning to lie in bed and sleep late. I thought to myself last night, ohhhhh thank You Father, for tomorrow, as we have nowhere to get up and get ready to go to. I am grateful for this quiet time in our home.

To shut down all outside operations and allow one to feel and enjoy with expectant Joy the coming of His Birthday Celebration! There is a party going on and I know we are invited! Amen.

The more I tried to stay in the bed the more I tossed and turned trying to keep myself under the covers warm, cuddly, to just hide a little longer in His presence, behind His shield- in the quietness of the morning’s arrival. My Spirit said I had to get up—the excitement pulled me out of bed, my level of childlike love and expectation of His presence and direction for this day Woke Me UP! And motivated me to get out of bed to praise Him for all of His creations and promises that we partake of each day.

To live a truthful life is to remain in Him so that He will remain in you. John 15:4.
This is a day by day process of living and re-learning. To face the lies with His truth when He reveals them to your heart. Don’t push them back into some holding tank—DEAL with them.

A truthful life is to experience a growing, fruit producing, vibrant spiritual life and relationship with Jesus is not just an intellectual process. Nor is it a never ending and exhaustive series of good deeds done with the wrong heart—the wrong motives.
Are these wonderful, vibrant days going to be every day? NO you will not feel vibrant everyday. But you keep on going and remember to go to His Spirit and become replinshed, and restored and then go back to class.

We learn to allow the changes to pass right on by and we learn what we must from each situation in order to be prepared for the next time.
When times are good and when times are rough, with trouble and trials we walk the Way given by His teaching.
It is In our remaining in the vine that our enlightenment and fulfillment from His peace comes. When we are connected to Jesus - From the vine comes understanding, wisdom, knowledge and good works, but now it's from a position of having experienced God's love and acceptance. Now you Will Know.

We must resist the urge to do things to get/buy God's acceptance. He is offering us a resting place with Him with amazing results, if only we would daily, Prove Him.
Sit down in your seat, class is about to start.

The Teacher knows that the student is ready to learn, so the Teacher shows up and begins to Teach the hungry student. I, the student tried to stay in the bed, but His Way and Work for me is One of Silent, unapplauded preparation.

Preparation not for my work, but for His. This type of Teacher-student relationship is not a two way path—in other words, Jesus does not need to learn anything from us-but we need to learn everything from Him.

When we are used as teaching vessels for God, we can definitely learn from the students that He sends to us. To think otherwise will be a prideful hindrance that stops the process of learning through His love.

The Teacher knows what the student needs for this day—lined up and balanced from The End first, starting at the desired outcome. So the Teacher starts at the End and walks backwards to where I, the student is on this day of my Journey.

The Teacher sees me, He sees All those that are expecting Him to show up; and sees the time is now to begin The lesson for this day-With His Love He woke me up and said, it is time to get up and begin to learn-for the day is upon us. More Truth about His purpose concerning my life. His purpose for your life also.

I knew He was coming in the morning, so I made preparations before I went to bed so that I would be in a cleared and content place when His Love woke me up this morning.

The student must make a straight path in preparation of His Way to unfold—to be content to learn from The Masters style of teaching. The maturity to know that for me to want ‘to know’ any faster than He is moving me, or to seek to skip some lessons because, I think I already know what I think He is getting ready to teach me—is not being teachable.

My heart will reflect that it is still home to remnants of pride if I think I already know what He says I don’t know. He knows our hearts, Because He knows us from the inside out. That is a comforting blessing for us to hold tight to and use for strength. The student is hungry for what The Teacher knows to Teach.

If we are to be trained By the Master Teacher to be prepared for the Work, the positions, the opportunities, the possibilities that we have been Called to partake of—that He has thoughtfully decided to include us in His Plan for the Wholeness of His Kingdom;
I understand that What I have learned from attending and graduating from mans school of preparation—Is Not going to be enough- I will desperately fall short and become caught up in the web of my pride if I think I already know enough to Work for God. I am fooling myself and keeping His Truth at bay.

I have to unpack what I have learned and how I have learned what I have, in order to be emptied and repacked so to speak. This I a truth that everyone who answers His Call with A Yes Lord has to learn.

We must not interfere with the Lessons of learning What He knows will fully prepare us to Be a better Teacher of His children-and to be a better child of the Most High God. To Become A more Effective worker in the fields tending to the harvests!

Man can’t teach me any of this-I can’t even teach myself any of this--Only His Spirit is able. I take my seat in His classroom every day-prepared to learn what I don’t know. When God Calls and we answer Him with a ‘Yes Lord!”—what we have learned from mans schools of education is not Enough to do the Work of God—We are not qualified and have to go through a training enrolled in the School of Jesus Christ.

I am not the only student/teacher that Works under The Master Teacher—I am not the only student that is hungry for what He knows and is freely giving to all who take a seat in His classroom. I welcome all that want what He is teaching- I encourage all that are on this Journey and the paths that we have in common. I stand with all that understand that we are all at different places of learning and teaching—that we are all at different places of being convinced, dedicated, trusting, living by faith, and converted.

We are being taught in His classroom—the world of fields that need to be harvested.
And some of the fields are in terrible condition—some are in the middle of wars between differing prides, some are in the midst of total decay and filthiness, some are in the midst of false teachers using His name to manipulate masses of people—some of in the midst of violent home lives with prostituted phony love trying to pass as a family, hostile work environments, unsafe streets – unequal this and unequal that- the fields of the harvest of plenty—but the true dedicated workers are few.

Teaching your children about Jesus, so that God can teach them.
You don’t need to be concerned with leaving your home to help others or leaving your country to help others—start in your HOME first—start in Your Country first—We have plenty of Work to be done right here at HOME!

I am speaking about the people who where not called by Father to go out of this Country to do Mission work--but make up their own minds to go and do so.
Many of the workers are leaving the fields He assigned them to in order to honor what they want to do. There is plenty of work right here in this Country to do.

Yes it is very honorable to go criss-crossing the globe to help downtrodden, poor starving people, spreading the Gospel-I applaud those that Have Been Called to do so.

AND truth be told, you and I both know that many who do this ‘work’ have the WRONG motives of heart and use this ‘mission’ in order to come back home and be accepted by man in some self-centered way-for people praise—that is all these people will receive from doing ‘flesh work’—an award from man—not the REWARD from God.

Start in your Home first—in your heart is your home then move on to the actual dwelling that you live in and call your earthly home.
Jesus is not going to teach us the way that man has concocted for us to learn. Just because you see “so many doing it that way” does not mean it is right nor that is the way you should do things. KNOW Jesus for yourself through a relationship with Him—Know His Truths for yourself—Know the leading of His Holy Spirit for yourself.

Yes, belonging to a community of faith is always good—going to church is good-(if God sent you to the church and growth is apparent)—but know this Truth, that You Are the Church—every day—every moment—you are the Church!

Start learning—start back to learning - or move to the next lesson of learning Though the Teachings of The Master Teacher. Don’t allow your flesh or satan to fool you into becoming stagnant and stuck at being saved!

How are you going to go and help somebody else’s children when yours are an embarrassment to you with you go out? Your children are just as hungry as those that live outside of your home. FEED THEM! They are hungry for His Word and then give them some food their bodies.

This is what a Good student/teacher stays aware of—her home first- in the natural and spiritual realms. IN order to teach your children you have to be a student and learn how and what to teach them. You can’t do this if you are not in class with The Master Teacher!

God can’t take over the teaching of you nor your children if you don’t start them off In Him. How can they recognize His ways, His love, His corrections, His gentle nudges of direction if they don’t know Him to begin with?!
People always pray; God keep my children—God protect my children-God hold fast to my children—BUT they have not even told their children about Jesus, about His life about His love about His freedom offered-how in the world do you think God will teach them if you have not taught them to learn abouy Him, to pray to Him, thank thank Him, to listen for His voice to know and learn about His Love and the Forgiveness that leads to total Freedom through Him?

If the Home has unrest; no peace or truth- is not stable and secure in a foundation with Him in the center—built around Him—how will you be able to help anyone else in Truth?! This means if there is unrest in your heart, your spirit, your actual home dwelling, the family members you share this home with, if there is unrest in any of them, nothing will be stable and secure without Him teaching from the center of the thing.

If the one that is the stronger has built on sand instead of Rock, how do you think any work you do in the name of Jesus will be able to make it through the fire? When a wind storm-rain storm rolls upon and into your life—the condition of your foundation will determine what you keep and what you lose after the storm has passed—AND they always do pass—As He always knows how to save the Just.

People need to Stop lying to themselves and to those around them—start living a Life of Truthfulness!

And you can’t help those that live with you until you allow Jesus to help you! Stop skipping classes to go hang out with your flesh!!
There is more than one field to harvest—there is more than one kind of Worker. The Father is preparing each worker to be Effective in working in the Harvest of people.
The varied crops to be harvested must have trained workers who know how to harvest each crop.
As you don’t harvest bananas the same way you do tobacco. You don’t harvest milk the same way you do strawberries or apples.

To celebrate and encourage the differences that The Father has so generously created for us to be partakers of is to honor His Goodness and His decisions of what is best for us.

We need To remember that Jesus told us that He had to go-John 16:7-16—but that there was so much More knowledge, understanding and wisdom that He had to Teach – but the time had run out—and that The Students were not READY to learn – were not mature enough—had not gone through all the steps of the process necessary to get us to His desired End of His Lessons.

He said that He would put all the rest of what He needed us to
know in the Holy Spirit, in the Other Comforter, In Spirit of His Truth—and that as we continue growing in our Relationship with The Father through Him—We would be able to call on the Holy Spirit to release all of this knowledge, understanding and wisdom that we would NEED for now. The Holy Spirit knows the things of God that are to come.

To be a Good Teacher – One must be a Good Student!
To think that any of us is at a place of Their Journey and knows All about God is to be un-teachable which stops or slows down the process of learning directly from The Master Teacher. Who will prepare and carry you through each day-achieving The End that He started with.

We cannot tell The Teacher that We already know that or this. That stops the process of teaching the lessons necessary for our continued transformation in Him- and Jesus will stop and allow us to know the truth—going through some situation by a hands-on learning but by the hard way. Some people insist on doing things the hard way.

The student’s feet must be shod with the Gospel of Peace. Yes, the preparation must first be made in the students own heart. If any unrest is here, nothing can make you well prepared for what is coming.

So, when I read about the falling economy, the choices of people that Barack is choosing to staff his offices and speak at the swearing in ceremony; when I read about the fathers and mothers killing their children, the people who professed love for another begin to kill those they say they love either literally or through a slow oppressive and horrible manipulative enslavement--I go and make sure i am aligned with the right people, i check my motives again and sit back down to be taught -- Are you sending anyone to help the people Father? We should ask Him.

When I read about all the people that are now homeless and jobless because of somebody’s greed and selfishness; the many state run mental hospitals that are closing and pushing patients out the doors like they are popcorn--only to be a serious threat to themselves and everyone they cross paths with--I stop to make sure that I am still connected to Him through The Spirit.

When I read about the pain and hurt that is being inflicted in the name of oppression deguised to be love and truth; and the many varied groups of people that Are by design, being ‘left out’, and treated like crap in the name of some haters god of pride; I know He is preparing His people for battle for His name sake.

when I read about so-called Christians making it their life’s work to tell everyone else what a ‘real Christian’ is like and is not like, and who Jesus loves and accepts and who He does not-- like they have completed the Course Work from His Teachings; When I read about the total disregard for HUMAN LIFE and the LIFE OF THE EARTH—I know to remember that I am a student of The Master Teacher and that I have not completed the course work that I signed on to learn--AND Yet He just might send me into the field to protect and help the Harvest make it through the night with some other Workers.

We read about all this trouble, tribulation, oppression, out right greed and evil and we want to do something to help! We want to be a part of the solutions that Will Work.
AND not just with helping people free themselves from the terrible goings on of The World--but First in our everyday lives—in fact, this is where knowing who to give your loyalty to and who to align yourself with starts—in our everyday lives.

Staying in Him and He in you--then it moves on to sitting as a student in the classroom of Jesus The Master Teacher—He wants you to know the Truth about yourself, What are your motives?

I remember that I will be sent into the field to Work even though my lessons are not complete because, that is the Way the Teacher teaches—I am reminded that I have to weigh in with Him/consult Him to make sure that I am not aligned with the wrong people and that If I am to work and help another with their Harvest, that I must be sent by the Teacher and not by my own thinking and desires.

I must remember that I am a a vessel that carries the light in the dark places that He is with me in every place that I go. He is the Source!


The outrage that I hear from the hearts of people who are tired of those that are in power always enslaving the people with yet another legalistic rule, law or guideline in order to maintain a tight control of how much Liberty and Justice for all is actually given to all.
I pray these people are content with their lives, are teachable and secure in their foundation with Him and have a growing relationship with the Master Teacher.

Man used God’s Words in the orders they set forth—man has promised with all the best intentions of providing Liberty, Freedom, and the Pursuit of Happiness for all people. Man made these promises—and the people have held them to their word.
It has not worked as man has made promises with the wrong heart, the wrong loyalties, and the wrong motives and changed the outcome – the end of the thing to make sure that he and those like him are the only ones that profit from the promise.

God will not be mocked! 2 Peter 2

Man cannot deliver on the Promises that God has made to us. Only God can do that. Man can try as he may to live within the promises that God gave us—That is Gods purpose for making the Promises. 2 Peter 1:3-9

But the heart must be changed—the desires have to be aligned with the Fathers, the care and concern for all the others over and above ourselves must be in sight at all times….the pride and selfishness has to be killed off—the ‘whataboutme’s have to die!
He said the way to serve Him is to serve others.

I am reminded that many do not know this freedom is available to own and live within. And some know about it but are afraid to move past the point of Believing toward Trusting and Having Faith.

I am reminded that many have been taught false truths and paths concerning This Freedom given to us. We need to remember Compassion, Mercy, Grace are for us to carry with us as we cross paths with so many others.
I am reminded that the many false teachers have purposely held back vital information and His truth concerning The Way – about God’s heart and about Jesus and what He desires us to learn.

They have willfully strayed the flock of hungry sheep—the students who believed their lies and promises of freedom all for the sake of self-glorification. These are the ones that will fall to the depths of the deep waters—food for the fish and the birds of the earth.

I am reminded that with all that is going on in the world, His Love woke me up ( His Love woke up all those that He Loves) this morning to learn from Him, to praise Him to honor Him with my life – to understand His purpose for me for this day. To take my seat in His classroom of Learning so that I allow His Teachings to further my life for Him.


Let me warn you therefore, beloved, that knowing these things beforehand, you should be on your guard, lest you be carried away by the error of lawless and wicked [persons and] fall from your own [present] firm condition [your own steadfastness of mind].

BUT, that you Grow In Grace (undeserved favor, spiritual strength) and recognition and knowledge and understanding of our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ (the Messiah). To HIM [be] Glory (honor, majesty, and splendor) both now and to the day of eternity.
Amen (so be it).”
2 Peter 3:17-18

I have had it! Today I had to become Martha.

I am taking a very short break from my writing and from what I post here in order to Begin to Clean this room! lolo

Too many years have gone by--and beloved and I both love books, collecting 'things', and we both need our own walk in closet.

So, while she is on her way home from work and the girls are occuppied with whatever Quiet thing they are involved in-(thank You Jesus)-I decided to get up and begin to sort, throw away, and re-order part of this studio. The part that has most of her belongings--thought I would surprise her.

Please stay and enjoy the music, the past postings of messages, or click a link--see what someone else is thinking.


Either way, Please come back, I'll have something NEW posted in a day or two.

Much Love to you All!

Resting In His Faithfulness,

To have and use His ‘Keeping Power’-is to trust Him-to have faith in Him-is To Prove Him!

To strengthen oneself in the Lord, allows the continued work of helping others that are not where you are yet. They are on their way, but they need some help.
(I Cor 2:4)

When you have run out of what God has given you for today--You have got to allow yourself time to sit, quietly and remember how you got to today. Through all the messes that you created, that other people created and the trouble that satan sent your way. Jesus Got you over! that is Your testimony—Your Deliverance Story! You have got to allow quiet time spent with Jesus in order to be restored-replinished, rejuvenated--to be given a Fresh Anointing--so that your cup will run over and you will be prepared for the next things God brings your way. Amen.

Among other messesages that He will send us to speak; We are to share our Deliverance stories-our testimonies of How Jesus Got us Over. As we walk-step by step, one day at a time please don't be ashamed, scared, embarrassed, nor feel unworthy to share your story in order to encourage those that listen to you. If you do feel this way about sharing your deliverance story, my Hope is that you are leaning on Him to help you get through and past this fear. In Jesus' name, Amen.

We don’t always know who He is sending us to speak His love over before we get there. No matter what the situation & circumstances are that your life is in or the persons life is in, If God sent you to them and them to you-and yes, you may be walking into a storm-- but keep your eye on Jesus.

I warn you, Don’t Look At The Waves!

I must confess that with this in between season that we as individuals, as Americans and as part of the World on a whole-- are in—I am filled with gladness that me and my family are with Jesus. I am even more excited that He uses us to help others come, understand and stay with Him to help bring in the Harvest.

I am so glad that He kept knocking on the door of my heart years ago-I’m so glad the Father allowed me to go through what I did – which hit me so hard with truth that I knew I could do nothing to help myself.
I HAD to open the door and Let Him Come On IN!

As long as there are days to live, I have things to learn!

He has prepared us for anything that may "POP UP" outta the blue that is a old challenge with a new twist, or an old one that has either not completed it's course-OR- we didn't kill it off the right way.
Whether the trouble is from inside or outside of our home-or the issue may be something that we have never experienced before since all that is being Divinely revealed in this world is nothing we have ever known to happen before.
I will not look at the Waves. I know the Staying Power of His Love.

No Matter What--I know He is standing right beside us waiting for us to lean on Him and say, "Father, what shall I do?" And by our spoken faith we prove Him-He then reveals to us what He has done--created A Way that we may continue to go by. Thank You Father.

What He has already brought us through to get to today, I know He has created a Way out of no way for anything in our future that may happen. I know He is already in my tomorrow! And I know He is in your tomorrow also.

Now is the time to know how to trust and have faith in our Mighty Good Shepherd! And to Know the Holy Spirit is to Want to continue to grow, as what we already know is NOT Enough to take us the rest of the way! Amen.

Don’t let satan fool you-we need to be teachable all day every day. Amen.

Have you gotten there yet? Do you have that Fire of Him burning in your heart? We all get a burning hot fire in us for Him. It’s the love.

Many think their fires have gone out and some have allowed them to burn down to a few embers. A lot of people think that is all they need--they know God to a point--but it has not 'clicked' yet for them to realize that our love for Him He sees in us when we consistantly obey Him and how much time we spend with Him. Not when we start with Him and go to a point then start living by our will again and calling on Him when troubles or Holidays come around-Or when we are with 'other Christians".

The little embers and the grace from yesterday will not help as you face the challenges of daily living in this world that evil is trying to transform into his living quarters. Every day he comes up with a new combination of evils to throw at us--we have to be taught on a daily basis--to stay teachable and humble so we can learn and through it All-hang on to our Father's Staying Power!

The enemy roams small place after small place spreading his lies and fear. He lingers around sneaky or boldly-sometimes out of sight-sometimes he will walk right up to your face-- to see who is looking at the waves instead of fixing their eyes on Jesus.

Don't be fooled-Your Flesh is not your Friend.

Let me remind you that satan also heard you when you spoke love out to Jesus. So because you confessed your commitment of faith to Jesus, satan comes to see if you really meant it when you said it. That you will love and follow Jesus forever-that you trust and have faith in Jesus—that You BELIEVE!

Helping others when we need help ourselves, dealing with more bills than earned cash, sicknesses, mean bosses, terrible neighbors, a bad part of town you live in, all of this stuff-- these are the waves sent by the enemy to make you sink in what faith allows you to walk on and through—don’t look at the waves. Hold on to the Staying Power of Jesus!

Not only does he want you to stop following Jesus, he wants you to stop spreading the Gospel to all the people that God has placed to cross your path and you theirs.

He wants you to stay when God tells you to go. He wants you to go when God tells you to stay. He wants you to get involved when God has told you to leave it all with Him and wait. He wants to turn the fertile planting ground that God changed your heart to-satan wants to turn that into his battle ground and make you start a war with yourself.

Don’t Look At The Waves!

Satan does not want you to speak out your faith in public. Speaking your faith could be actually verbally saying something about Jesus, most of the time it's how we treat people while we are in our homes and out in public. It's preaching the Gospel without using words that God watches for most often. You can say a lot of things--but do you live what you are always saying?

So satan sends fear in one form or any other to make you ignore the divine opportunities that God has created for you to honor Him with. Opportunities Created for you to help others that are in need as we are His Representatives, His Ambassadors.

We have the dedication and conviction in our hearts to do this work for Him. This is The burning hot fire that is His Love in us.

A lot of times, people do not want the help they need, so much as, wanting the help they want. They will ‘fight’ Him on what you have been sent in their lives to do and say. You don’t work for them, you work for Jesus. People today are really the same underneath as they were in His time of living as man. Do what you were sent to do and move on. If you are to stay and some type of platonic relationship has been formed-then going through the long-suffering with them is part of this. They are in it--you are suffering with them as they go through it because you have a heart filled with God's love and you feel for them. But know that they- just as you or myself has to go through 'it'.

We are to Learn as we teach.

No matter how they act or re-act, it is not about you-don't take it personally. You are learning also as you are helping--it's the Way God does things. Many times our being changed and having the experience and 'getting' the wisdom all will happen at one time.

This Walk-the transitions, the changing and purifying that we go through to name a few of the seasons and stages; is not always easy. Remember, God already knew you when He chose you and sanctified you as His.

Do you get tired; do you feel sometimes that you are just worn out? Is doubt walking through your heart and mind? You love God, you obey Jesus, but wave after wave keeps dropping on you and pounding down hard in your soul.

People seem to get worse and the more you love Him the more they act like fools.

People – so many have believe his lies and become more selfish, more concerned with money, social status and instant fame. Satan has grown a lot of weeds and poison plants. Help Us Be Strong Jesus!

My friends, let us keep encouraging each other. We cannot make This Journey alone or without helping His other children that are set aside for His use.

God wants us to stay on Fire for Him.
Love always grows-it is was never created to be stagnant and stunted in growth and maturity. It was created to grow-go through phases and up to different levels of strength and power and with it comes the knowledge, wisdom and understanding of The Divine. It grows, it blooms, it re-seeds the ground with more Love and more of The Divine. It produces effectively!

It can be a lonely daily walk on this Journey that His Righteousness has given to us. Be full of His Joy and Peace, His compassion and forgiveness. And Please USE it well!

I am so glad for His still waters, that He is my Shepherd, that He restoreth my soul-I just have to shout about His greatness! Thank You Lord for Your path of righteousness that I walk for Your names sake! Don’t matter where You send me—I cannot fear any evil—Your Rod and Staff comfort me—thank You Lord for comforting me.

Lord I am so filled with Your love—I want more—You prepare a table for me in front of all my enemies! Lord, Jesus, You anoint my head with Your Holy Oil—and my cup just keeps running over and over and over—every time I am emptied—I turn around and I am filled with your goodness and mercy Father, surely I will stand on top of what others sink in. I know all the days of my life that I dwell with you- I believe down deep in my soul I know I will dwell with you Father in Your house forever and ever! Amen, Amen, Amen, Wonderful Counselor, Prince of Peace, Mighty Good Shepherd, I love you lord.

Resting In His Faithfulness,
One Day At A Time By Faith.
Joshua 1:9

Wednesday, December 10, 2008


Greetings to you on this wonderfully made day.

In case you did not wake up this morning with that same outlook for this day, take a few moments and listen to the Power He put in music. I want to tell you that You have not been left behind by God. We are in a quiet season. It's winter, still and quiet rest and growth underground that we cannot see. The plants, trees and roots are dormant and the earth is sealing itself up to brace for the winter days ahead.
Rest in the place that you are in--rest in His faithfulness and love. And allow the changes that are neccessary to be completed.
Remember, Living a life for Jesus is full of changes, waiting, teaching and service. And none of it can be accomplished by our own plans or power. That would be works of the flesh, works by the bondswoman not the Free Woman.

There will be times when you may get tired of Living and Working for Him, there may be times when you are just frustrated from waiting, there are times when all you can do is cry because you are just tired.
There are times you don't want to go through the Way He is taking you-sometimes you just want to go back to the way you used to live. But that is not going to work because there is nothing to go back to.

He already knows this about you when He called you and started His Work in you.

The heat is getting to you and forcing out all the dross that lives in you.
Just remember that your flesh Is Not your friend!
And the devil will attack your mind and try to turn it into a battle field. Are you helping him by pulling the plow as he holds the reins? Or are you standing with Jesus as God lifts up a Standard for you to live by?

The Father already knows this would happen and that you would be going through all of this. Tried by the Fire to bring forth the Purity that He placed within you.

For me, to listen to music and voices that can usher in the Spirit of the Lord--to listen to the love in the voices for Him, moves my entire soul to higher places that provide the insight and strength that I need.
My hope is that you will feel His anointing- His Comfort as I do.

En-Joy my friends.
Let us Live each day with
Boundless Faith & Fearless Confidence in our LORD Jesus Christ-Our Shepherd.

John 10:7-10 (Amplified Bible)
7"So Jesus said again, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, that I Myself am the Door [a]for the sheep.
8All others who came [as such] before Me are thieves and robbers, but the [true] sheep did not listen to and obey them.
9I am the Door; anyone who enters in through Me will be saved (will live). He will come in and he will go out [freely], and will find pasture.
10The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it [

Joyfully Live FREE and In FREEDOM Now AND Every day.

People often pursue a life of material security to protect a future that none of us is not promised.

I am convinced that Nothing can bind me to my Lord more than my strong belief in His changeless love.

Greetings to you my friends, what a Joy it is to be awaken to such a Wonderfully Made Day!

As we move closer to the Remembrance and the Celebration of the birth of our Messiah—the process of Change that we are in the midst of, has many people all turned around and confused. They do not have a healthy, positive accepting relationship with themselves nor with Jesus--which gives them a faulty Spiritual foundation.

They don’t have Spiritual security—they have not made valuable deposits with the Father. What they have tried to deposit with Jesus has bounced and been rejected for Insufficient Spiritual Funds!

I asked God to show each of us when we are walking in the ‘works of the flesh’ and when each of us is walking in the Flow of Following the leading of His Holy Spirit! In the name of our Messiah, Amen!

Walking in the works of the flesh will always lead to disappointment and frustrations. Frustration is defined by a deep and chronic sense of insecurity and dissatisfaction arising from unresolved problems or unfulfilled needs.

Examine your motives and your thoughts. Examine your heart to seek the truth that you need to know about yourself. By doing this you are allowing the changes that God has set forth for your life to seamlessly happen and become permanent.

Praising our way through this day by the Power (His unchanging Love) of Jesus that Dwells upon us, is a resting place for our entire being. He is the Good Shepherd and there are no surprises or mysteries that can unfold in our day that He was not already aware of.

God has simple solutions to the complications of mans ways.
He is already in the midst of Every issue, problem, situation that may unfold in your life for this day and every day. He also is in the midst of Every Way made where it appears to be no way. He is already in the midst – waiting on us to recognize through faith that we can’t do anything by our power to help ourselves without Him.

He has already put the answers, the opportunities and the outcomes in place and all we have to do is go to Him, Ask Him and then Wait for Him to reveal it all to us.
I know, it’s the ‘waiting part’ that gets to most people.

Discipline to be self-controlled allows us to use the courage that we all have to step into the fullness of His Freedom provided from being Saved by Jesus, and To Not believe satans lies and the fears that his lies produce. These lies are what trip up our flesh/emotions and that is when many continue in the bondage of them instead of living with Joy everyday FREE.

For who the Son sets FREE, IS FREE Indeed! Amen.

He wants us to understand, accept and realize that He has Wonderfully made us and all that we need. Wonderfully Made Opportunities that will allow us to honor and glorify Him- Opportunities to serve Him by serving other people. These are just a few of the opportunities that live within His Freedom for us. Thank You Jesus!

The unfolding events of each day may be and Are a surprise to us as we did not create the day. No mystery there. When you are overwhelmed by frustration it is impossible to accomplish anything. Our emotions will gain strength and voice based on the conditions produced by our environment. How we see ourselves will in the middle of these conditions is how we will act and re-act to their affect on our lives. Be these good and favorable conditions or negative and defeating conditions—our emotions will try every time to govern and guide us through the steps. But we have the Freedom to Not allow them to do that.

We must learn to be responsible and learn to use our self-control to Quiet our emotions so they do not lead us into total self-defeating conditions. In order to Quiet your emotions, you have to Quiet your environment. In other words, take yourself out of the noise, the hustle and bustle of your natural day and give yourself some healing time with the Lord. Be Still so that you can receive His Wisdom and direction to get through the roadblocks. Look to the Good Shepherd and know that what is frustrating you, Is No Surprise to Jesus. Amen.

Psalm 100
A Psalm of thanksgiving and for the thank offering.

1MAKE A joyful noise to the Lord, all you lands!"
2Serve the Lord with gladness! Come before His presence with singing!
3Know (perceive, recognize, and understand with approval) that the Lord is God! It is He Who has made us, not we ourselves [and we are His]! We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.(
4Enter into His gates with thanksgiving and a thank offering and into His courts with praise! Be thankful and say so to Him, bless and affectionately praise His name!
5For the Lord is good; His mercy and loving-kindness are everlasting, His faithfulness and truth endure to all generations."

Cross references:
(A) Psalm 100:3 : Eph 2:10

This is an opportunity to grow spiritually-a given moment in time when you can deliberately release to Him All that frustrates you and get yourself some REAL HELP! He will lead you away from the poison weeds and grasses- toward the nourishing food and water.

Once you release to Him all that has caused and is causing you to be frustrated and disappointed at most turns, He Will Either use this opportunity to bring you to a place of greater understanding and faith; or you will sit in front of or behind this barricade for as long as it takes to awaken your thinking to realize your inability to make progress apart from His Help.

It’s up to you as He Is ever patient with us.

You can develop the discipline to have and use your self-control to help you Let Him, or you can continue to oppress yourself and not become FREE in all the ways He designed and has provided for us to be. Again, it’s up to you.

It is natural to feel frustration in our lives—but the only Help comes from His Healing that Will move you from allowing the natural to overtake and guide you by emotions. The Fullness of His Freedom.

The Freedom from trying to manipulate each situation for a better outcome—The FREEDOM to release All to Jesus so that His Power Rests upon you and you Dwell in His Tent—The Tent of Love and Truth.

Enjoy Every day—FREE yourself from the bondage of self-defeating thinking and living AND Follow the Spirit into FREEDOM.
You have to step when God tells you to and not when your flesh tells you to. God gives us the Grace to Do everything that He Calls us to do. This is Joy.

Remember, Jesus said, “Follow Me!” , He never said that He was to follow us.

Resting In His Faithfulness,
One Day At A Time By Faith.
