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)

Follow Me, “I AM” the Way!

“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 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

Discerning God’s Message!

“So let us discern for ourselves what is right; let us learn together what is good.” Jb. 34

We make choices and decisions in our lives, everyday. Herein is the challenge: It is what one does with the choice given or path to follow. Now what?

First, discernment is always preceded by listening. Wait on God’s divine timing. Watch for an inspiration or lead on how to proceed, “Hear me, and I will instruct you and tell you so much more.”

When you receive your first invitation to move forward via the “Inner Ticker” Holy Spirit, trust you will always get a second verification or affirmation of truth. Something or someone will grasp your attention in clarity and not confusion. God gives one the ability to determine whether a message is from a holy source.

Test every situation and “do not worry about how to defend yourselves or what to say, because when the time comes the Holy Spirit will train you in the way to go.”

“By following my path, the one I have laid before you, will make you more connected to this world.” (PAZ)

Clear Sight

“Go and wash in the pool of Siloam (which means “Sent”). So he went away, washed, and came back seeing.”

My goal is for others to see clearly; as was in the case of the man who was blind from birth and had his sight restored, “I must work the works of him who sent me, while it is day. The night is coming, when no one can work.”

You have an incredible task in front of you. I am here to help you maneuver this life.

What is causing your spiritual blindness? Study (John 9) and focus on what you see.

Jesus said, “Those who don’t see will see and those who see, will become blind.” Your eyes need to be opened a bit wider.

I want you to have more clarity and purpose in your work. “Honor who you are; do not let your truth be limited or dimmed in the eyes of another.”

“Get a new pair of glasses. See with the Light of Christ as it fills your entire being.”

Into Change

It’s not about the change. It’s what happens when we step into the change.”

 “Here I Am! I Am Ready!” So many make promises and yet, stumble along the way. Who is it that you serve, God or man? “Am I the one you lean into?”

It is much easier to pretend to be someone or something you are not, than it is to admit that the direction of one’s path has come about by your own power instead of God’s Shekinah power and nothing is working. What’s next? Find that part of you that yearns to be with me. Step out and be!

Here you stand now. If you are really ready; welcome the change. The cross+road is before you. Are you stepping in or stepping out?

“All you need to do is cross the road and I will be waiting for you. Here is where we begin our journey, together; the one without all the forks in the road.”

Digging Ditches & Preparing for Rain

“We limit ourselves via our narrow vision.”

“Dig deep into the earth beyond the cracks. Here is where you will see the truth. At your feet, I will present you with a banquet of choices.
First, step out and be. Find that part of you that longs to be with me on this side of the station. All you need to do is cross the road and I will be waiting for you.
Here is where we will begin our journey together, the new journey; the one without all the forks in the road.
Do you remember when I referred to those around me as ‘friends?’ This is how I think of you. I will meet you on holy ground, standing shoulder to shoulder.
You are moving into a new consciousness of Light & Truth. The rain is coming. Are you ready now? Have you dug those holes?
Some areas will be covered over and others will be opened. The holes you dug will be filled with water and those not meant to be will drain away.”

Make this valley full of ditches. You will neither see the wind or the rain, but the holes will be filled with water. (2Kgs.)
