Woke up this morning, with the mind to get the girls ready for school. Transitions at times have rocky paths, slowed movement, and places where you sometimes feel that you really do not want to go on.

I have learned throughout my years of living that it is Better to keep pushing forward by Faith in the Lord, then to stop and become stuck in the midst of a transition. And that is a miserable place to be--stuck in the middle of a transition.

Also, you can't get out of it by yourself!
I thank the Lord for revealing to us where we are individually, and as a couple, and as parents. He reveals to us where have been/ are stuck in the midst of any transition--So that we would/have allowed Him to Help us become unstuck! Amen! Together, we Are on One Accord in Him! And this is a Blessing!

The mind, body and the lies of the enemy will fool you into thinking that 'giving up', or stopping and becoming stuck in the middle of a transition is easier and better than pressing on; and that is just not true.

Stealing Away to be in quiet with the Lord will rejuvenate your Spirit and Soul so that you can keep right on moving down the middle of every challenge and trouble--Getting Through is the Goal

I remembered that Today is Sisterloves' and my 5th Anniversary together!.

Had I not obeyed the Lord 5 years ago we would not be together--And that I know would not be a Good thing for us.

She came into my life 'AT JUST THE RIGHT MOMENT'! And I came into her life 'at JUST THE RIGHT MOMENT!' She was sent to turn my sadness into Joy! And this se does everyday. I only pray to be able to do the same in er life everyday.

Please know, that is Not the Same kind of Joy that the Lord Jesus as provided to us, and that we live in and trough everyday. That Joy from Him cannot be provided by any thing, or any human.

Trusting by Faith in His plan for our lives Always Proves to be the best! Always!

Our Home if Full of His Love, His Presence because He lives in each of us--because He Is the Center of OUR JOY and we love Him above all else!

The transitions that He has taken us through Always lead us to the Next better place--Moving us from One Glory i Him to the Next Glory in Him.

Trusting In His Plan by Faith, Guided by His Holy Spirit is a Path of Love and Revelation.

The Seeds that He has planted in this Family grow, and produce in Abundance Fruit that Always brings Him Glory through our lives.

We have no 'special plans' to celebrate right now....maybe later when He supplies the resources that are needed to 'do something else special' -- But the Special that does not require any money We Always have-our Love for the Lord, and our Love for each other! Amen!

And we thank Him for All the Days that He has granted to us to be together on this earth Serving Him and through Eternity!

We Shall EnJoy our 'Eternal Life' that the Lord has Blessed us with because we Belong to His Family!

I just wanted to share with you our Special Day!

There is So Much for us to Look Forward To !
And we are more than ready to be taken there as we Follow Him!

Proverbs 11:25

The generous soul will be made rich,
And he who waters will also be watered himself.
(ref. 2 Cor 9:6-10)

Proverbs 22:9

He who has a generous eye will be blessed,
For he gives of his bread to the poor.
(ref. 2 Cor 9:6-10)

Those that are Lead by fear and a lack of self-control, those with stingy, cold hearts are jealous always seeking to obtain something totally out of their reach. Always with a covetous spirit they suffer intellectually-starved for a worthy faith lead purpose.

Through intimidation tactics, seeking to control all around them, the jealous, cold and stingy-hearted begin to hurt and mistreat those who do not deserve to be hurt and mistreated.

Such people suffer through life with a troubled mind and a diseased heart condition, continuing to spread their self hatred in the form of oppression over others that pose no threat what so ever to them.

These with cold and stingy hearts value a false material freedom that is born from selfish motives, redefined by a fear led troubled mind; without Love and Compassion, trying to convince others it is the prize to have.

They are fear driven—operating in hiding, waiting to try and destroy All and Anything that is Good and Loving.

Low-minded, judging, making decisions based on limited knowledge governed by raw emotions out of control. They themselves are intimidated by their lack, their shortcomings, their weaknesses-they attack and try to kill what they do not understand and those that are different.

They cannot grasp the Truth that lives in And leads a Generous Hearted person, whose life is Faith Led and who Trusts in Good for All.

Though this enemy Is defeated, he will not give in easily. Any setback that he creates as his last ditch effort to keep us in bondage will never come to pass against us. We Refuse to be intimidated and Will Not be discouraged, we are those that are Faith led. We Will break through as we continue to Follow our Lord.

We are above and not beneath, the enemy is beneath and Not above us. Courageously we press on and encourage ourselves toward the Divinely Planned Victory that has already been Placed in our hands.

For the Faith Led heart, terror and fear pose no threat at all. Proven Faith is unshakable when faced with the Impossible. The heart that lives in Fearless Confidence knows that, Patiently they will gain what is needed and longed for.

The Generous Heart has been created, strengthened, and is guided by the Spirit of Truth believing by Faith and Love; that all fear has been cast out and Knows complete Freedom always begins on the inside first.

Our Lord has distinguished, and set us aside to Walk Fearlessly right through the middle of every challenge and difficulty-our eyes are always focused on our Help.

Deuteronomy 28:13 And the LORD will make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above only, and not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you today, and are careful to observe them.

John 15:16-17 (Amplified Bible)

16You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and I have appointed you [I have planted you], that you might go and bear fruit and keep on bearing, and that your fruit may be lasting [that it may remain, abide], so that whatever you ask the Father in My Name [as [a]presenting all that I AM], He may give it to you.

17This is what I command you: that you love one another.

Greetings to you my friends, sisters and brothers In Christ Jesus our Lord!

I have a few things to share with you today, words of encouragement, a deeper understanding of the directions as we Walk His Way. Amen!

I pray that the Words spoken through me will enlighten your knowledge, understanding and wisdom and give you a deeper Peace in your soul; and strengthen your Faith and Trust in the Lord. Glory be to the Lord God for His Love, Grace, and Mercy that Is more than Enough for each of us to eat and share with all others that come our Way, in the name of Jesus, Amen.

It is easy to get ‘caught up’ by our ‘daily duties’ which creates a large distance between us and our Center of balance. Taking care of children, our jobs, housework, yard work, and concern over bills, taking care of sick family members, our health issues, the world’s issues, All will pull us away from being disciplined and dedicated to our Daily Prayer and Praise time with our Lord.

Daily obligations if we allow them will distract us from His Purpose and Will for our lives. Pulling us further from the Center of our Joy and keeping us totally off balance-consumed by the world’s goings on instead of the Lord’s Work. We are to Serve the Lord, not out of obligation but by dedication to Him.

You have to Steal Away and focus on the Center of your life every day. The trick of the enemy is to get us wrapped up in our natural lives, wrapped up with what we have no physical control over so that we become distracted from what we Do have control over-our Spiritual Focus and Power. Satan uses our weaknesses and our lack to keep us immature and focused on self and not Jesus. That is why Jesus said that His strength is seen through our weaknesses and that He is the Supplier of all our need-what we lack and cannot obtain by our own power.

If satan is successful, we will always have a lack of daily Spiritual focus which depletes our Spiritual Power in and over the natural situations for ourselves and others we are Called to help.

You will begin to question what you know is Truth and this will create hesitation to obeying His Spirits movement in and through your life. Satan’s purpose is to

Dis-connect you from the Source of your Daily Spiritual Power-Jesus.

This lack of Spiritual focus causes your mind to wander into the depths of darkness and dead places where you end up being no Good to God or anyone else—you cannot make anything happen by worry.

If you do not exercise your self-control and pull yourself back-if you do not STEAL AWAY FROM ALL THE 'STUFF' AROUND YOU and get BACK to the Center of your life-staying in the Flow of His Holy Spirit’s movement—you will be drained and overwhelmed by the things around you. The Lord will begin to use hard teachings to snap you back in place.

He Will use/allow your circumstances to help you to Narrow your focus on your Spiritual life, which is your place of Truth to get the results that He seeks for you. This is a deeper and more vital relationship with Him.

Don’t be caught off guard or confused, He always uses our circumstances to work His Will and Purposes in our lives, but in this case, it will be a hard teaching because it is something that you are/may be fighting against.

You Will find yourself Rushing back to Him to re-establish your Kingdom Position and Spiritual connection with Him. Remember, if you take your eyes off of Jesus, you Will sink in the Water that you have been walking on! Deep Calleth to Deep!

Obedience allows us to stay in His Flow, so we can go with His Flow. We do not use man’s ways, but Gods Way!

Amos 5:24 But let justice run down like waters and righteousness as a mighty and ever-flowing stream.

Let us continue on in our learning and encouragement.

We are to hold Fast to what we have – His Truth! Jesus told us more than once that He Is The Truth and the Holy Spirit Is the Spirit of Truth for us. Amen.

Each Truth that we learn is to be cemented to our being by Obedience. The character of our Soul Is a building (the Temple) in which God’s Spirit will make a Home in us. This is His Will for each of us—His Purpose—His HOPE.

When bricks are placed together, united in a single purpose they form a building. If they are lying on the ground, scattered, separated from each other, they are useless.

The mortar that connects each brick is Obedience—cementing each Truth to become part of our being-our character. Truths that will be lost and useless to our purpose in Him if not added to us. Every Truth that the Lord Provides gives us what we must live in and walk in; To be seen by all around us.

His Truth is our Truth that we cloth ourselves in and everyone will know that we belong to Jesus by how we speak, because we speak the Language of Faith- because they can see that in the midst of troubles and trial, we are Kept by His Peace because we are Peaceful, we are kept by His love because we show Love to others, that we are kept by His strength because we show our strength in our Faith and Trust every time we speak, act or react to wrongs, and difficulties. He said that we will be known by the Fruit that we produce to be His disciples, His children, and I believe Him.

Alright, Moving right along to the next teaching. Even though I am giving you a buffet from Him, You can always print this out and read it over and over as many times as your heart, soul and Spirit needs to be fed, eating one part at a time.


We live in and through many trials and troubles daily. And if we are pushed by fear, instead of Powered by Faith, then these trials and troubles will overwhelm us and drown us in shallow waters.

The Truth Is, that they cannot destroy us! Look now, can’t you see what He has Already brought you through – so how can what you face today destroy you unless you allow them to—unless you allow your Spiritual Life to wane and grow distant from the Center of your life?

He uses trials and troubles to Work His Will in our lives. Remember, I thought I heard you say that your will IS His Will for and in your life-right? Not my will Lord, But Your Will be DONE! Remember…?

I have confessed it myself, and I know the Lord has heard us all when we surrendered our lives to Him to be controlled and directed by Him, because we Believe in, we Trust in, we Rely on and by Faith do we see and walk. Amen.

This is your new life opening up before you—yours to enter into the Kingdom that He has prepared for us all! Yes LORD Hallelujah!

Daily His Presence in our lives Is the sunlight that shines on our paths. I encourage you to continue to Trust and Go Forward unafraid – without fear, in Fearless Confidence and do as He said- "FOLLOW ME", Jesus told Peter and all the others that He blessed and healed while he walked this earth.

No matter what you see others going through—they may not suffer as you are, they may not surrender as you have, they may have what seems to be all the natural, material ‘things’ of fleshy comfort and you do not…Do not be concerned with what His Will and Purpose is for any other—YOU FOLLOW HIM! John 21:18-23

His Grace Is Sufficient for All our Needs!

In God have I put my trust and confident reliance; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me? Psalm 56:11


If you hesitate to obey His Spirit’s leading you will miss out on what has been Divinely Planned for you at that moment. You may even lose your natural life, truly you will lose your Standing in His presence because of fear; which causes a person to hesitate, going back and forth, not trusting completely what He has told you to do.

Have you meet yourself yet? Are you too busy to meet yourself, to examine and face the truth about ‘who’ you are and ‘who’ you will be when He is finished His Good Work in you? Ask Him, and God will provide a season where you can meet yourself and accept what is acceptable to Him, And what Is Not acceptable to Him concerning your character And your heart. Then whatever He reveals to you as being unacceptable to Him, Let Him clean it out of you.

I Encourage you to PLEASE get Seriously Quiet before the Lord, as each of us is approaching a huge turning point—a major shift in our lives to which we Will Need His direction And guidance. You cannot help yourself by yourself!

He has Divinely Ordered a break-away moment-a plumb line to be drawn-a line of demarcation that Will separate your past from where you are now, And where you are headed.

Our past experiences will not be a Source of help for what is on the horizon-Divinely Ordered by our Father.


This is not a bad thing that is approaching us-not at all. It has been Divinely Ordered to Correct our course- to produce our Kingdom Destiny set forth by His Truth for our lives.

Destiny does not just happen—It Arrives!

The Lord encourages us to Look Forward, excited, expecting with Joy, All that He has prepared for us! Allow the Lord to balance your Gifts and Anointing to match your character—so that your Gifts and Anointing and your character are On One Accord In Him.

It Is a very terrible thing when a person’s character does not match-equal their Gifts and Anointing. Don’t sabotage yourself by leaning on your Talents, Gifts, and Anointing without Allowing the Lord to mature your emotional and Spiritual lives. You will not be able to use His Gifts, and Anointing effectively and efficiently if you stunt your own growth. Your immaturity will govern your flesh and your Purpose from Him will not be fulfilled! Which means, there will be No Glory unto God through your life.

I Cor. 2:9

But, on the contrary, as the Scripture says, What eye has not seen and ear has not heard and has not entered into the heart of man, [all that] God has prepared (made and keeps ready) for those who love Him [a]">[a]who hold Him in affectionate reverence, promptly obeying Him and gratefully recognizing the benefits He has bestowed].A)">(A)
