Further Reflection:

Today, we had a Super Blue Moon & Eclipse ushering in a new spiritual season, as we stand on the threshold of change.

God who is the rock of our foundation is calling us out of the depths of darkness and into faith, freedom & healing.

This week, let’s take a moment to contemplate these questions:

Do you believe God can do the impossible?

Has your faith increased or decreased this week?

Interrupting the Flow!

“I am in the details.”

Delay is sometimes necessary and not welcomed in our instant world.

God may give you a spiritual pause; without a word or inspiration, just as Jesus experienced in the wilderness.

We are linked to others via our surroundings or experiences. There is a desire to have a “right now” solution or answer to a prayer, etc.

We may want to intercede or interfere due to a “preconceived bias” with those whom God is lifting up to a different level, which is beyond one’s sight.

Delay is an opportunity for God to work it all out, so we can walk it out; abiding with God.

“I have a plan and a purpose for your life.”

Reaching Higher

“When they call to me, I will answer them.”

We are to lift our heads higher in order to see more of heaven.

Jesus says, “Bring me your misery, depression, wants, woes and I will bear them away as a child in its mother’s arms; stay sheltered and rest. When they are trouble, I will be with them.”

“Rest in me. Speak to me.”

A Higher Plan

“For I know the plans I have for you; to give you and a future.” (Jer. 29:11)

Be determined. Don’t let anything or anyone pull you away from the path, for any reason.
Now, this is the appointed time, the anointed place; stepping into the space and not falling between the cracks.
God always has a better plan with a higher, divine purpose.
Embrace the eternal part of you that longs for the blissful connection of being at one with God.
Now is the appointed time.
The map of your being was laid out before you were born, “Before I formed you, I knew you.” Today, I know you. Take time to get to know me.

“God’s plans stand firm and can never be shaken.” (PS. 33:11)

Priorities

”This is the way God wants it done; you won’t be under nearly as much stress.” (Ex. 18)

The planet is shaky. The general agitation that everyone feels is due to the emotional issues and earth changes taking place.

It is time to pause and look at one’s priorities.

Those in helping professions, ministry and followers of the way; the stress is over the top. Many are suffering from extreme burnout. Be aware of spreading yourself too thin!

In order to balance the issues you face, it is necessary to care for yourself in such a way that allows each of you to rest.  Many of you do not know what this means.

Start your day in prayer and turn everything over to God. Let God do the heavy lifting.

If you find yourself agitated or overwhelmed, take a breath, say a prayer, go for a short walk; move a muscle and change those thoughts.

It is the intent of what you put out that gives one the ability to make a different choice.

Be careful; don’t step into situations or places where you don’t belong. God is in charge and will take care of the matters at hand.

“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you.” (Is. 41)

When We Bless Others, God Blesses Us!

“Blessings and promises from God are from everlasting to everlasting.”

When we bless others, God blesses us.

Its okay to wait upon the urging of the Holy Spirit as God’s timing is perfect. “I make myself known to all by the Spirit within.” (Awakening the Inner Ticker of Life, pg. 83)

Recently, I was being directed to let go of an item that was passed on to me.

Following the cue from Spirit, I found myself at a local thrift store donating this item and other wares that I no longer needed.

As I was handing the icon to the volunteer behind the counter, the power of the Spirit covered me. I felt blessed.

Overwhelmed in the moment and close to tears, I walked away from the counter and went out the door. I took a deep breath and continued on with my day.

Later in the week, God kept his promise; a dear friend presented me with a wondrous gift.

Yesterday, I had a package delivered by the “Blessed Trucking” company.

I am humbled and awed at the power of the Spirit and how God moves in my life.

Hold on to this statement of truth: “When we bless others, God will bless us.”

 “God is the creator of the world who does not tire or grow weary.” (Is. 40)

Follow Me!

“What is that to thee; Follow Me!” (Jn. 21:22)

Jesusvisitingyou

The rebirth is coming; it’s happening.

God uses ordinary people to carry out his plan.

We are being called to follow in the footsteps of Christ, moving from a life of what is familiar by stepping into the unknown. “My sheep hear my voice. I know them and they follow me.” (Jn. 10:27)

In his book, “My Utmost for His Highest”, Oswald Chambers asked this question: “Will you go out, not knowing where you are going?”

One of the most difficult questions to answer in ministry work is, “What do you expect to do, when you don’t know what you are going to do?”

“Whether I hear God’s call or not depends on the condition of my ears and what I hear depends upon my spiritual attitude.”

In the moment, God reveals to us via inspiration and insight the path we are to take.

Let your willingness be a continual expression of trust and joy.

One must learn to “go out” through her/his convictions, creeds, or experiences, until you come to the point in your faith where there is nothing between yourself and God. “For you shall go out with joy and be led out in peace.” (Is. 55:12)

“Stepping in and out with Christ requires one to get out of the way.” (Awakening the Inner Ticker of Life, pg. 57)

Who Is It That You Look For? Part 6

“All who journey from one beginning to another, in a life of communion with Jesus do not focus on their own progress or backsliding. By day and by night, the Gospel seed, placed in the depths of their being sprouts and grows.” (Bro. Roger, Peace of Heart in All Things, pg. 26)

 

Something is happening out there. I have seen signs of these subtle changes in my garden and in my life.

This season, the Lemon plants are all in bloom, an anomaly. In the past, one or two plants would bloom and the others would remain dormant, as if they were asleep, “The dawn has secrets to tell you, don’t go back to sleep.”

As we prepare to fix our eyes on Jerusalem as a respite stop, we are not to become distracted by wandering from the path which leads to hope and truth.

Look, a victorious rider is on the horizon. The people are cutting palms, laying them down on the path. The palms are like hands waving; flowing in the breeze, a sign of victory. “After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude, which no man could count, out of every nation and of all tribes, stood before the throne with palm branches in their hands.” (Rev. 7:9)

 

“So take my hand in silence, in goodness and in faith.  Never despair again about your long due wait.” (DMOL, Patricia A. Zorn, pg. 57)

Shoes of Peace

“God, give perfect peace to those who keep their purpose firm and put their trust in you.” (Is. 26:3)

 

Are you wearing the “Shoes of Peace?”

In ministry and in life, our feet will take us many places.

Look at Jesus, he moved with a purpose. He was on a mission and wore the “Shoes of Peace” everywhere he went.

Even during Jesus’ most difficult and vulnerable time, his feet were still moving until they were nailed to the cross.

Once resurrected, Jesus sported a supernatural pair of shoes to move around in while visiting friends and family.

Jesus traveled beyond space and time; stepping through a wall, startling those in his midst. His first words to those gathered in that special room were, “Peace be with you.”

Do you believe you are called to be Christ’s hands and feet?

 

“For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared.” (Eph. 6)

Peace Be With You!

Steadfast

Inlay1

When your faith is tested, let steadfastness have its full effect. So, let it grow and as your endurance is developed, you will be complete, needing nothing. (James 1:3-4)

There is great spiritual maturity that is found in steadfastness; the spiritual power to keep on moving when the going gets tough. This is a powerful realization that God is in charge. Good comes to those who remain true to the task while living in co-creative, partnership with God.

Life is a long series of adjustments as you move from one stage of being into another. It takes patience and steadfastness to wait for a particular communication or development to move into view, that leads to a new and different direction in life.

During these (dry) periods when there is no movement and you feel stuck in 3rd gear, know that the good God has in store is coming to pass.

As you prepare to follow a new charted course, act as if; pray and be; affirming divine order.

Every day around 5:30 a.m., I go out into the Chapel of Light to break bread, pray and be; shutting out the cares of this world.

Some mornings, the place is packed with supernatural visitors from that other place.

Right next to the altar is a little stool that I sit on when in meditative prayer. Directly in front of my stool, I have another small folding chair; this is Jesus’ chair.

If I have an issue or problem, I go directly to Jesus; placing all matters squarely in his hands. I feel the presence and the power of the Spirit of God moving in and around me.

As I go deeper into prayer and meditation, I wait and allow the process to unfold.

The answers I get are: “Yes”, “No”, “Wait, don’t do anything” or “Trust me.” I follow the Good Orderly Direction I receive.

Give thanks, dear friends, God is at work. Be steadfast in faith and trust in God!

Go into the room, close the door and pray.” (Mt. 6:6)
