"The world is full of so-called prayer warriors who are prayer-ignorant. They're full of formulas and programs and advice, peddling techniques for getting what you want from God. Don't fall for that nonsense. This is your Father you Are dealing with, and He Knows Better than you What you Need!" Matthew 6:7-9 (The Message)
Another Great Day is upon us! And the weather here is good today also!
Got some more cleaning to do, some more resting to do, and some more Love to share and spread around!
I hope that All of you Will Enjoy this wonderfully made day, regardless of your circumstances, Today Is Better than Yesterday!
Another Day to begin again, to laugh, to give, to receive, to EnJoy, to Praise, to step out on faith, to trust, to grow, to mature, to Love!
Another Day in which He saves me from myself, and the works of evil,
Another Day to be forgiven and to Forgive,
Another Day to enjoy our Lord's Divine Companionship, to be refreshed, to be restored, to be re-positioned, to be filled with all we lack!
Another Day do Leave Beauty and Love every where I go.
Another Day To use our gifts, talents, abilities for His Glory and Building Up His Kingdom!
Another Day To Learn what we don't know--to apply what we do know!
Ahh, don't be fooled, It is not that I do not have needs to be fulfiied and places to be delivered from-places to grow and mature in, it is not that I have all our bills paid, it is not that we do not have repairs to our home that need to be made and lack to be filled, shortcomings to have lengthened, It's not that we can help our daughters navigate through this world based on our power alone, it is not that I do not have days of tears;
It is that I have made up my mind (long ago), Not to allow any of this to create doubt, fear and worry to be what I speak and think about. Since I am not able to make any of this happen on my own, I have no need to try and 'figure out' how to accomplish all these and more by my human ways. I already know that does not work.
Regardless of my circumstances, Today Is Better Than Yesterday!
Regardless of our daily lack, shortcomings, our Waiting on and with Him--In Spite of all that, my Faith and Trust Will Be the loudest sound I want Him to hear, My Need of Him in my Weaknesses is what Sings to His heart, I Keep the Sound of His Love Above the sound of everything else!
I have grown, in my spiritual life and my emotional life, these are things I know that I share with you, to encourage you that God has the Last Word, and I am Glad about that!
I have learned to use these things to grow my faith, to increase my trust, to Sing Glory to God in the name of Jesus, because all of these things are in His hands, are concerns of His, are part of His Work of Love for us! He Always meets my faith in Him!
I allow Him to teach me, correct me, to better me, to use me to speak His truth and spread His love to those that Need Him, want Him and also serve Him. For those who Adore Him!
I Keep my focus on Jesus, on His calling on my life, to allow the gifts, talents, abilities and anointing He has given to me to be used for His Purposes, to Encourage others, to Serve Him, to be a Help where ever He sends me, to do what He tells me to do for those that He sends my way, to Pray and Praise throughout every day!
We have to use our Gift of self-control and self-discipline to Help us grow and mature in His Love, ways, purposes, knowledge, Presence, and Wisdom.
I stay focused on the mission of Jesus, the depth beneath the surface, to be given every thing From His Holy Spirit Who has all that we need to know--ready to Impart into our heart, spirit and soul that we need!
What are you spending your days focused on? I ask you this so that you will Ask yourself this and seriously examine what you are spending your time and energy thinking about. What ever you are focused on that is what you are breathing life into. Some things we truly Need to allow to Die, And feed the things that will Add to our life!
This is why I am full of Joy, Peace, Strength, Encouragement, Love, Compassion, Clarity, This is why I am grateful His love wakes me up every morning, that His Spirit guides my feet each day, that His Faithfulness protects us from seen and unseen danger and trouble.
Many turn to 'self-help' groups and materials, gimmicks and shortcuts, none of that will work for me.
I don't want just my best, I Need His Best to Empower my best!
Many begin their projects and assignments without Checking in with the Will of God, to see if they should even be doing what they are trying; And if they are to be doing what they are doing--they do Not seek His timing and order of things. They are looking at and following how other people did what they did. Often times, that will not work out as one thinks it should.
Jesus said He Came to Give us--And for us To Take (since we are partakers) what ever we need from Him.
I help myself to the Power of His Spirit to bring forth the prophecies, the visions the promises that He has spoken to my heart and soul.
I Help Myself to His GRACE, Mercy, Favor, Truth and Love! All day Every day!
2 Cor 10:5
