* a few things I think about in the quiet of the morning, before every one else gets up*
*drinking from my own well and I draw closer to the Lord for this day
*Here I Grow Again!*

Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Enter, you who are blessed by my Father! Take what’s coming to you in this kingdom. It’s been ready for you since the world’s foundation. And here’s why:

I was hungry and you fed me,
I was thirsty and you gave me a drink,
I was homeless and you gave me a room,
I was shivering and you gave me clothes,
I was sick and you stopped to visit,
I was in prison and you came to me.

 Then those ‘sheep’ are going to say, ‘Master, what are you talking about? When did we ever see you hungry and feed you, thirsty and give you a drink? And when did we ever see you sick or in prison and come to you?’
Then the King will say, ‘I’m telling the solemn truth: Whenever you did one of these things to someone overlooked or ignored, that was me—you did it to me.'
Matthew 25:35-40  (MSG)

I am Here!
Brought through, with care and concern, into this place He planned for us.
At first it didn't Look like part of His plan, but I got calm and quiet and listened and looked carefully through the dust, smoke and mirrors, and past my emotions.
 Sure enough, it Is the vision I was given. And, now, we are Here!

As I remind myself, I remind you to Always be ready to be under attack, especially once you agree to allow the Lord to lead you to where He plans for you to be.  Especially after you do what He says to do.

 The enemy does not want us to obey, to grow, to mature, to share, to love, to help, to trust,  to follow and be changed into Love.
What good for us would it be to allow worry to occupy my time and thoughts at this point?  Yes there are new questions, new needs, new concerns for this Place called Here! But, I have to occupy my mind with,  "Ok, Lord, what do I need to do Now?"
And then do what ever He says for me to do.

 The stretching, growing and maturing of our faith that we went through to get Here, continues to speak for me and add to us.

Shutting down and out all the noise of the world, there is Too Much!
It creates an Overload.
As I shut that noise out, I also push back the darkness of the world.
Staying Put and Listening. Doing what I am to do for today, knowing that all the pieces of His plan are working as they should. I center on His Love being the loudest sound I can hear.
At this point of my journey with my Friend, I have learned to give little importance to my knowing the details, I trust Him and I know as long as I focus on What He leads me to do, all the other parts of the situation, of the plan, have been worked out for my best.

We are still within Due Season, and the Lord sometimes over laps seasons. It's always Sowing season, no matter what other seasons we are within, we are to Sow every day. Now, we are reaping what we have sown in this Due Season.  Whether it was good or bad, spiritual or natural, we are reaping what we have sown.
It has always been this way and it will always be this way. There is an order in place where by My Friend pours into, heals, cleans out, adds to, takes away from my spiritual life first, then all of that happens in my natural life. 
He gives to our spirit first always.
I have to make room in my Spiritual life to receive what we need before we receive it in our natural lives.

Ephphatha!!  Rehoboth!

Too many want all the natural first, to be enlarged and given room in their natural life.
They don't make room to receive their blessings in their heart, soul, and spirit, and what ever they get in the natural has nothing to keep it in place to grow. We must be Opened and then Enlarged in our spirit life first if anything natural is to have a foundation to grow and mature from.  The spirit sustains what God does for us, in us and through us, not our flesh.

Stay Put and do what is before you to do. Make Sure it is the Lord guiding you and not your own desires with their own ways and what not.

Some things people are attempting to do are not going to work because, they are not in alignment with the Lord's order and timing.  They have decided what they need to do is the best to get them where they want to be.  Not thinking that they need to take all that to the Lord and see if it Is actually what He said they need to be doing.
Some are within that order and timing, but they still have mixed in their own desires concerning the details.
This is ego and impatience having their way with these people.
They are emotion led, not Holy Spirit led.
This is also the Least that is available to them, not the Best that God has planned. Every day is a time to mature and grow in our self-control and our emotional life, but to many refuse to do so.

We are often showed the End of a thing, then the Lord will bring us through the process of getting to that end.
But way to many create their own details of how they should get to that end.
That is Not going to work and you will find yourself on a never ending circle walking around that mountain until you learn to completely surrender yourself and be led.

It is a wonderful and life giving truth that through all our failing, Jesus always stays with us. Expecting us to allow Him to change us and take care of the things we cannot. 
Some of our attempts to Live for Him are sometimes pitiful. Oh how we treat our Friend in ways we would cry about and fuss about if we were done the same way.
Until we allow Him to mature us, our understanding of Him and what He can and Will do for us is immature.

We stumble over our shallow  confidence to walk and work alone. Many hours of helplessness which makes us cling to Him. Running to do what we think needs to be done instead of Asking Him and then Waiting to be led to do what He wants us to do.
He watches our willful blindness to His guidance, and how we block the answers to our own prayers.  How we are some times wishy- washy concerning the forces that oppose His loving purposes.  The betrayal that we would scream about if done to us, we have done to Him.  What kind of Friend are we to Him? 
He certainly is Not that kind of friend to us. How grateful and thankful I am that He is not.

He said He is our Friend.  And He displays every example of a beloved best Friend so that we can learn how to be one and how to receive one.
In every part of my daily life I look for Him. In all the little things that happen, I look for Him.
What seems like a insignificant minor change in my life is actually the impetus that will result in a major benefit.  So, I open myself to receive the wisdom and direction I asked my Friend for.  Sometimes I have to allow Change to work in my daily routines.  Like opening the door, or making a door so the flow is continuous.

Though many do try to, we can not make this new life fit into our old life, no, that is not how He does it. We have to step out of our old lives and be made to fit into the new life He offers.

 Each day as I am being made over to fit into my new life that my Friend has blessed me with, I know getting rid of habits and behaviors that actually have created more harm than good must be done. You know, those little things that we don't see anything wrong with, they are toxic.
I am thankful that my Friend loves me enough to point these areas out in my character so that I will not stop change from doing a complete work in me.

 I thank Him, my Friend for what He withholds as well as what He gives to me. I thank Him for all. I know to run to Him excited to share all the Good, as well as run to Him and cling to Him when I am weak and tired. When I am strong, I make it a point to cling to Him, so not to fool myself into thinking I am self-sufficient= I do not have this, but Jesus does!
All Is Well, I know beyond all doubt and fear that all is well because, I know that nothing the enemy can do to me will complete itself, I Rest,  in this Truth.
To God Alone Be the Glory in the Name of Jesus, my Friend!

 "It is The Spirit Who gives life [He is the Life-giver]; the flesh conveys no benefit whatever [there is no profit in it]. The words (truths) that I have been speaking to you are spirit and life."John 6:63 Amp

Jesus sensed that his disciples were having a hard time with this and said, “Does this throw you completely? What would happen if you saw the Son of Man ascending to where he came from? The Spirit can make life. Sheer muscle and willpower don’t make anything happen. Every word I’ve spoken to you is a Spirit-word, and so it is life-making. But some of you are resisting, refusing to have any part in this.” (Jesus knew from the start that some weren’t going to risk themselves with him. He knew also who would betray him.) He went on to say, “This is why I told you earlier that no one is capable of coming to Me on his own. You get to Me only as a gift from the Father.”
