You Know the Way!

“I have set before you an open door that no one can shut.”

I am showing you the way. The time to arise is here.

You have been given a new pair of shoes, put them on. Aren’t they a comfy fit?

Now, stand tall. You are ready!

Honor the truth that stirs within. I will direct you in the way to go, from this point forward.

Today, we begin a new race together.

Just as in heaven there are many doors and mansions, so it is here. I will open many new doors that lead into new abodes/mansions; the choices abound.

Choose wisely, as if you were picking produce at the market. There is a great harvest bearing fruit right now.

A way is being made, as we speak.

Get moving and break in those new shoes.

I am a bit ahead of you on the trail, but I will wait for you.

“I am the Way!”

Pressing On

“Follow the path designed by God, inspired by the Spirit.”*

Rely on my inspiration and leading; nothing is impossible for me.

I am at every curve and turn, “I am pressing on; not that I have already attained or perfected.” Follow each and every step.

“Along this great walk of life, one may veer off the spiritual path. It’s OK. At anytime during the journey, be willing to retrace your steps.”*

Pay attention to the road along the way. Embrace the beauty of your world, wherever you are and be.

“Lead them in the way they are to go.”

Hidden Gems – Week 4

God Knows!

“I am walking my destiny and living the dream.”

Whenever we stop short of our true desire in prayer and say, “Maybe this is not God’s will.” Jesus asks: “Will you continue to follow me and the path I am on; drinking of my cup?”

“Those without hope are always running after things.” God knows what we need and when we need it.

Our spiritual destiny is to carry on.

  “Delight yourself in the one who gives you the desires of your heart.”(Ps. 37)

Hidden Gems – Week 3

“There is nothing covered, that will not be revealed; nor hidden, that will not be made known.”

Wait and believe; stop looking for answers in empty holes.

Many worry about the enemy jumping into dry spaces created by doubt, indecision, residual anger or bitterness. What do you subject yourself to in such a state?

Some of the terrain you walk upon might be a bit unstable; don’t lose heart. Unexpected events and the strain of life can wear you down and this will have a long-term effect on the state of one’s Spirit that is unsettled or disturbed.

Even if there is an aspect of Jesus’ life that chills your heart to its core and makes your entire spiritual life, gasp for air; the Cross you move towards, on this journey, is where one can crucify that part of self that hinders progress and joy.

Remember, when the darkness of dismay comes, endure it. Out of it, comes the ability to travel all the way with Jesus; to Golgotha and beyond!

“I don’t want you wandering in darkness. I want you walking in faith, freedom and healing. Don’t you get it?”

Hidden Gems Week 2

He makes the deserts of our soul blossom in the light of springtime.” (Br. Roger)

We all experience periods of dryness in our lives when it appears there is no movement (on the outside) or the path may be unsettling; “Even when he is rejected, he never refuses to remain alongside of us.”

The way to live a victorious life, is to keep the eyes of one’s Spirit open to the risen Christ; “We are more than conquerors through him.”

We persevere in the way of holiness; though our eyes cannot see, but one’s heart and Spirit can get set free.

God is encouraging us to discover or rediscover him once again!

“We are super victors with a joy that comes from experiencing the very things which look as if they are going to overwhelm us.” (Utmost, Mar. 7)
