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

Following the Call

“My job is to obey the will of the one who sent me and to finish the work he gave me to do.”

Jesus talks a lot about “the work, God’s work.” When the disciples asked him about having a bite to eat, his response was, “I have food to eat that you know nothing about.” We are now entering a new season.

Tomorrow, there will be a heavenly and earthly shift; some seen by the human eye and the rest experienced in the spiritual. It is time, Four more months and then the harvest. But I tell you, take a good look at the fields; the crops are now ripe and ready to be harvested!

What are you being called to do?

This morning during my special time of prayer, I heard these words, “Little Tree, Little Tree, go out and represent me”; a final line to a series of writings that will be published later.

I step into this new season with refined tasks; allowing me the flexibility to continue to follow the call and be with clarity and purpose.

St. Therese writes: “He guides and inspires me every month of the day. Just when I need it, a new light shines on my problems. This happens not so much during my hours of prayer, as when I’m busy with my daily work.”

This has always been true for me. In prayer, I ask. In the work or should I say in his work, I receive the inspiration, direction or answer on how to proceed.

“We are transported to another level of consciousness and fit perfectly into a mold that God crafted from our time of birth; filling us with liquid love and moving one into a new m ode of being.”*

The Fourth Watch – A Call to Prayer

“And in the fourth watch of the night he came to them, walking on the sea.”

During the “Fourth Watch” while the wind and waves were blowing, Jesus walked towards them. He intended to go past them, but saw that they were in serious trouble. He paused.

 “I am walking towards the boat. Will you get out of the boat to come closer to me or will you stay in your comfort zone in the boat; even though, in the boat the world is rocking and shaking?”

Every day, the nature of humanity is sinking lower and lower into despair; fewer people are praying than ever before. There is a need that is growing and it is a call to prayer.

When the “Inner Ticker” stirs between 3 am and 6 am; get up and pray.

“In the days of darkness my elect shall not sleep. They shall pray incessantly, and they shall not be disappointed.” We shall not be disappointed. Does that offer you a bit of hope? It does for me.

“If you are symbolically and figuratively ready, get up and step out of the boat.”

 

 

A Beat for God

“Try My Heart and My Mind!

I have a new plan and a new purpose for your life, a new call. Your heart has been rebuilt, repaired and restored.

I will give you your heart’s desire; all that I have is yours, “Where your treasure is, there you heart will be also!”

 “Listen for the Spirit and Follow your Heart!

God’s Mighty Wind

“I Give You – My Peace, Healing, Hope & Strength!

I blow my peace upon you; Shalom Shelah! I offer you my peace, in its entirety. Will you accept it? “My peace I leave you, my peace I give you.”

I am blowing my healing upon you; breathe in and out. Receive the holy breath; Shalom Rapha, I am the God who heals!

I am blowing my hope upon you; receive it and believe it. Shalom Jireh, I am the God who provides all your needs!

I am blowing my strength into you. Shalom Nissi, I am the God of your strength! Can you feel it?

I am the alpha and the omega; my peace, healing, strength is yours for the taking.

Always, remember your source!

“All is yours; it is so – so be it!

A Spirit of Hope

“One who searches the hearts knows what is on the Spirit’s mind, because the Shekinah Spirit makes intercession for the saints according to God.”

We are saved in hope and the Spirit helps us with our own shortcomings or weaknesses.

Life happens and we find ourselves not knowing how to pray. We call upon those we trust; asking for the power of God’s intercession to come forth.

The Shekinah Spirit steps in to intercede for us, in a supernatural language that we connect with in a state of prayer.

As Prayer Warriors, we stand in the gap, in a Spirit of Hope, with God’s angels and saints to intercede on one’s behalf, permitting heaven to have its way.

 “Where two or three are gathered together in my name, there I stand in the midst of them.

Pressing Into It

“They were unharmed in the middle of the fire.” (Dn. 3)

Many times on his ministry journey, Jesus put himself in the middle of more than one situation; in spite of what was coming down the road, “God is greater than what resides in one’s heart.”

“The seed that is sown in good soil is like someone who hears the Word and understands it and that being bears fruit.” (Mt. 13)

When we struggle, we are called to put God in the middle of everything in our lives; our labor, our relationships, ministry, etc.

“When we pray, reflections and images often pass through our minds. We are surprised to find ourselves saying, ‘My thoughts are wandering. My heart is distracted.’ *

When we press into it, we have to put Jesus in the middle or nothing works.

“Yes, I am in the middle of it and so are you. You don’t belong in the middle, so get out.”

 

The Divine Path

“I now expand rapidly into the Divine Path of my life.”

I have opened the door and the path, my path is at your feet.  You cannot step where I have not been, not now.

 “We walk on fertile soil. Now it is time to tend to our sacred plot while waiting for the precious Fruit of the Spirit to be nurtured by the early and latter day rain.”*

This time we have together now is precious; too special to waste. Everything is falling into place, like a log floating down the river looking for a space to call home. Are you ready to experience the space you call home?

Leave the plans of your life in the hands of one who can handle it, the Divine Designer, God and follow the path laid at your feet.

“The ground I am on is holy and whole!”
