From the Pulpit & Into the Garden: "Grow Where You are Planted – Scatter Seeds of Inspiration!"

Adjusting the Plate

“Dear God, you have given me so much. Please give me one more thing, a grateful heart.” (G. Herbert)

As we approach Thanksgiving, the Day of Gratitude; I am passing on this message on to you:

“Your plate has been full for several years. The moment has come in your life to rearrange the plate by removing that which is no longer works; making choices about how, where and with whom you share your time.

Take care of what is in front of you each day. Nurture the gifts you have been given.

Give it all to God; be Christ centered instead of self-centered.”

“The Son of Man did not come to be served; but to serve and to give His life, a ransom for many.” (Mt. 20)

“Come follow me, I will give you Light.”

Every promise and every truth will now come to pass.

Just as the Red Sea parted with a strong east wind, I have cleared the way for you to move on, “Moses stretched out his hand over the sea. The Lord caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind and the waters departed.”

Each being, as she/he is, follows the path I have laid in front of them. By stepping out and not turning back to that which is familiar and embracing all that is to come; one will discover the path of true seeker of the Light.

Do not be despaired by those who do not or cannot understand your journey. They are not meant to follow your trail. Persevere in the way of truth, understanding and holiness.

Everything is now in place and ready to go. The timing is divine and perfect without missing a beat.

Jesus said, “I Am the Way, the Truth and the Light.”

You are now sent forth into the Promised Land, to continue the work without reservation or hesitation.

“Follow the Path, Follow the Light and Follow the Way!”

A Special Podcast Message Just For You, Enjoy!

A Foundation of Faith

“Are you willing to stretch and move in blind faith even though you feel you can’t go on?”*

When closing one door and opening another, having faith is necessary to move forward and finish the work one is called to do!

In prayer, we always need others who will stand with us in the gap; shoulder to shoulder, without pretense.

In 2015, my friends, the “Two Listeners” prayed over me. It was a powerful experience.

As I sat in their living room, I felt the power of the Spirit come over me; it was so strong, I couldn’t move a muscle. God had my attention.

My friends told me that a brand new door is going to open in my life, allowing me to step into new places with Jesus.  

As they continued praying, they said, “the Lord is closing a door behind you and it will be sealed shut.”

On Faith and standing in agreement with my friends, I stood up and stepped through the new door the Lord placed in front of me. The words that Jesus spoke, “It is finished” resonated in my Spirit.

I had no idea what was in store for me; only trusting in the prophetic words my friends shared with me that day, combined with the trust I have in my God.

This excerpt taken from E-Sword, Daily Devotions resonated with my Spirit:

“Maybe you are in “God’s Body Shop” right now – and He is pounding out dents, scraping off the old coat of paint that somebody else sprayed on you; cutting out the rust and putting new panels in place. You my friend are being over-hauled! And the final results will certainly be road-worthy – you can count on it!”

Even though we step into a new situation in life, there is always more preparation; discernment via prayer while getting bits and pieces of the new plan along the way. Herein lies the lesson of faith, trusting in God 100%.

  “We have to dig in our heels and not waiver until the miracle happens.”*

 

*Awakening the Inner Ticker of Life, pg. 55

Persist and Insist

“Persistence will be enough to make him get up and give his friend all he wants.”

Is it bread or is it something more; something deeper you seek?

Have courage and faith; persist and insist, “Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes in the morning.” (Ps 30:5)

Wipe away all confusion and keep your eyes fixed on Jesus.

For the one who asks, always receives; Ask and it will be given to you; all of it!

The one who ‘asks’ will have an open door to pass through. Be persistent in prayer, do not stop praying.

Pray in awe of the Spirit at all times and on every occasion, “Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.” (Eph. 8)

Patience and perseverance overcome the greatest difficulties.

 “Your heavenly Father will give the Holy Spirit to those who ask.”

Following God’s Plan!

“Whoever drinks of the water that I give her/him will never be thirsty again.” (Jn.4)

The Spiritual Call is all about God’s Divine Timing; growing where one is planted and preparing for the next leg of the journey.

In the Gospel of John, Chapter 4, Jesus meets the “Woman at the Well.”

There are key points in relation to the encounter between Jesus and the Samarian woman:

First, Jesus asks for a drink; totally out of context for that era. The woman is taken off guard and Jesus responds, “If you knew the ‘Gift of God’ and who it is who says to you; ‘Give me a drink,’ you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.”

Jesus speaks to ‘Jody’ (I always felt she should have a name) about her life and truth is revealed. She did not cower away, but accepted the invitation and drew closer to the Light. We have to be prepared to answer God’s call when he draws near.

Jesus describes of that which is to come; not being defined by whether one belongs to a church community or meets God online or in the moment.

How and where we worship or commune with God is anywhere we are called to be “his hands and feet.”

Freedom is leaving it all behind; not looking back to what was, but embracing what is; in search of the Spirit and Truth, “Believe me, the hour comes, when neither in this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, will you worship God.”

“Those who follow God, do so in Spirit and Truth.”(Jn.4)

 

The Nature of the Work

“He gave some to be apostles, prophets, evangelists, shepherds and teachers!” (Eph. 4)

Who do I call? I have called you by name and you are mine.
What is the “Nature of the Work?” This is about being called by God and stepping into the work.
I am bringing you into the work and you will soon find out what the nature of the work means and is, in your life.
The work is eternal because life is eternal; heaven is eternal. You get to walk it out.
Don’t fret about what is or what is not; just be and keep moving forward.
In this context, the nature of the work moves along whether you are aware of it or not.

“The nature of your work is now taking shape and form.” (PAZ)
