I cannot hoard the Gifts of The Spirit that He has freely given to me.
If I had money I would give it you.
If I had good credit I would co-sign for you.
If I had a coat I would wrap it around you.
If I had food I would feed your hungry body.
What I Do have to offer you Are Words of HOPE, FAITH AND ENCOURAGEMENT And prayers to God for you.
I Cannot hoard the Gifts of The Spirit--as they are freely given to me--I freely give to you.

Remember, we are learning to live by The Spirit instead of living by flesh and emotions. A lifestyle of Faith.

My lifestyle is one of believing And following my Friend And Brother Jesus.

A lifestyle of Truthfulness, Learning His truth and learning to apply It daily.

The Essence of Striving to Live Good by The Spirit by faith.
Confessing my loyalty And need for And of our Creator, His Son And His Holy Spirit.

For about a month or more now, The Spirit of the Lord has awakened me between 3 and 5 AM. I get out of bed well rested, no matter what time I fell off to sleep.
The Holy Spirit is my Teacher. His class starts early for this student.
1 John 2:27; John 16:13; Rev 22:16-17

I literally get out of the bed smiling, with excitement and gladness to be up. I feel that I am looking for/expecting something or someone to be there. I feel as if I am waking to actually meet with someone. And, I am just as pleased and full…content.
I tell you, this Has To Be God, lol, I am not one to wake and jump up feeling like that on my own.

What I have learned is that, this is considered the fourth watch by the Israel’s night watchmen. It is also called the Morning Watch in which the light of the sun is seen upon the horizon. It is a time when the Morning Star is the guiding light of God’s people that will lead them into the Day of The LORD!
Mark 6:45-51

As Jesus Is here to help His struggling Churches move from the Church era to the Kingdom era. This is the season that all will declare their loyalty to His changes and reap the rewards of His forgiveness for their sins, or they will not change and will continue to serve their material gods.
Hosea 6:1-3

This morning was no different. His Love woke me up just as happy and pleased to be up-I started thanking Him and praising Him for His being.
I began to pray and offer Him thanksgiving for All that He is doing to help those He brought to my spirit in need of Him.

The Peace from His Love that I am wrapped within, is so deep flowing and strengthening, a security for my steps and way, that I almost do not want to leave it’s quietness in order to wake the children and my partner to start their day.

Today is another day on my journey of faith with Him. When we call to Him, He comes and the first thing He says to us is “Fear Not!” Because He Is with us in our boat. Then as always, He takes dominion over the elements – satans storms that work against His people.

Peter’s faith was quickened by the event of waking on water when His Lord beckoned to him to “COME!”
And our faith will be also if we call out to Him, He Will call to us and say “COME!”

A true believer knows that duty belongs to her/him, and the events belong to God.>
On this morning as every morning, I call to Him, Lord of and over my life, and I ask that He reveal to His servant His purpose for this day that He has given to me. So that He shall be glorified through me. Striving today to live the authentic lifestyle that Jesus lived. Through eternal devotion, through a sacrificed heart obtaining blessed serenity, by freely receiving Divine Inspiration—to Spiritually Embrace the Love of My Lord, Who selflessly provides to me for this season—one day at a time.
Thank You Jesus!

Now, It is easier to be home as I am. His Loving Contentment soothes my Not knowing from one day to the next what I am to do. Not being able to work as I used to-but to sit and learn from The Teacher-His Holy Spirit.

It has taken my letting go of all control of my life to achieve this Spiritual level of peace. Learning to take care of my family in a much deeper way than I did when I actually left the house to go to work; teaching other people’s children for 18 years. Learning to depend Only On God for everything that we need is what His Love is teaching me and my family. And the community of Faith that I belong to.

When you believe in And follow Jesus, His yoke that He gives you as He takes your yoke-exchanging your ashes for His beauty, there are days that you feel you cannot go on. Remember, when you are walking on water, do not take your focus off of Him to look at the storm.

Daily there is Great Joy freely given for us to live within, but there are also days in which Great Joy seems to have run from.
My Hope is that you will find comfort and strengthen your faith on this day, In the name of Jesus, Amen.

I pray:
My divine Lord Jesus, Who has said, “Ask and you shall receive; seek and you shall find; knock and it shall be opened unto you,” behold I kneel at Your feet. In You I find consolation when affliction rises against me, I find protection when my enemies falsely persecute me, I find strength when I am overwhelmed with earthly trials and I see your light in the doubt and darkness that satan tries to make me think is my Truth. You have only to Will it and my prayer is granted for You are faithful to those You love. In Your name I am blessed. I am so glad to know that You care about me. Amen.

On this day, again I comfort my soul by reading these words that were given to me by The Rt. Rev Gene Robinson when I met him back in October '08. I do not follow or belong to any religious denomination, but The Spirit knows what we need and God used Rev Robinson that day in my life. I am eternally grateful to God in the name of Jesus for I know He cares about me, And about you too!


This is another day, O Lord,
I know not what it will bring forth,
But make me ready Lord, for whatever it may be.
If I am to Stand Up, help me to Stand Bravely.
If I am to Sit Still, help me to Sit Quietly.
If I am to Lie Low, help me to Do It Patiently.
If I am to Do Nothing, let me Do It Gallantly.
Make these words more than words, And Give me the Spirit of Jesus, Amen.
