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

Two by Two

Prophetic Passages

“So the Father has sent me, I am sending you out; two by two!”

When one is in motion, spinning too much; it’s hard to stop and appreciate all that is around you.

You have been sent to various parts of your world just as Jesus sent out those he loved, two by two.

If you feel concerned or fearful about where you are placed, do not fear! Instead, embrace the experience of being and living.

If you are a true light bearer/helper and follower of “The Way”; you are where you are supposed to be, allowing others to find and seek what you have.

Yes, there will be more “wars and rumors of wars”, as well as weather and earth changes.

In the midst of these challenges will be you, Children of God; spreading love and hope to those who have none, a shining light in very dark spaces.

Take your place and don’t look back or too far ahead!

We go hand in hand as I send you out, two by two!

“There are 2 olive trees, one on the right and one on the left.”

Open Wide the Heart Door

My hearts’ door is closed, what shall I do?

Vision:

Around my heart was a box. Holding the clasp shut was a nail; a nail from the cross.

Like many of you, I was given a second chance to heal the pain of the past by letting go of that which does not serve; people, places, things, etc., especially anger, hidden resentment, judgment, criticism and misunderstanding.

We drive those nails into ourselves and into Jesus; it hurts.

According to Mark 11, the fig tree Jesus had cursed withered away and died. When asked about this Jesus said: “Have faith in God.” Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in her/his heart, but believes that what she/he says will come to pass, it will be done for her/him.” The old door is closed behind and cannot be open again.

In endings, we have new beginnings.

Meditation:

“Be thou removed and cast into the sea; where my eyes cannot see, but where my heart and spirit are set free.”

As we give it all to Jesus, he took all the junk and put it in a large rectangle shape box with a crank. He turned the crank; all the debris turned to dust and poured into the sea, “I did it for you, it is finished.”

The nail that held my heart box closed was removed and discarded; so can yours!

See you Sunday!

“Striving and seeking are important in the dryness of the soul, for you never know just when the rain will fall and the dried seed will swell and burst forth into flower.”*

In and Out of Season

“Be ready: In and Out of season!

“The season does not refer to time, it refers to us.”

We have to grow where we are planted. In Season: every plant, that my Mother/Father in heaven plants shall bear fruit; “What is loosed in heaven shall be loosed on earth.”

Out of Season: Every plant that is not planted by God will not bear fruit, and wither away and die. “Let us rid ourselves of everything that gets in the way.”

We are moving into the time of the Latter Day Rain and the inception of the Light.

Pay special attention to where Jesus is now on the journey and continue to “Run the race with determination.”

In and Out of Season: We have to “be ready” whether we like it or not. “If we do only what we feel inclined to do, some of us would never do anything.”

“Scatter new seed with words of inspiration.”

Falling Spiritually!

“When I fell the first time, it was for you.”

We are back on the trail and a bit of weariness has set in; “Holy Spirit, help me to discern the nature of a lost soul, as a picture of my desire to be closer to God.”

Jesus said, “I tried to walk but stumbled and fell due to the weight of that tree and your pain.”

As humans having a spiritual experience, we can identify what it feels like to stumble and fall.

Jesus offers us the Trinity of life while balancing the heaviness of this world.

How can one completely heal, unless we see Christ in the reflection of this experience?

 “The third fall represented the whole of humanity.”

Hidden Gems

“When the Lord comes, he will light up all that is hidden and manifest intentions of hearts.” (1 Cor. 4)

Tomorrow, we will begin our journey to Golgotha and beyond. We will travel with Jesus searching for “Hidden Gems.” What are Hidden Gems?

Hidden Gems is a teaching that was given to me by God. I will be passing it on to you during this Season of Lent that is on our doorstep. Clues and inspirations found in scripture, comprised of heavenly messages can be applied to life.

You will learn to read between the lines to discover what is hidden and what God’s truth is.

What is hidden will be revealed!

Search the Word of God. Measure and test everything that comes in. Discern and ponder God’s truth in your heart and Spirit and you will get free.

Get ready! Here we go, “I have set before you an open door.”

“Stepping in and out with Christ requires one to get out of the way.” *

Being Sent Forth

“Go out and spread the good news to all.”

A Great Commission Part 1

Just before his departure, Jesus had a few parting words for those left behind: “Go to people everywhere and make them my disciples. Teach them everything I have taught you.”

“It is I who sends you out. Each step along the way, I have called you by name, I chose you.”

Go out and bear much fruit. You want fruit that will last from everlasting to everlasting.

Be part of the solution in all areas of your life.

Leave a mark on humanity.

“You are one who is called forth!”

Christ is My Source!

The Light is on the horizon, just past dawn with the promise of a new tomorrow.

Let us ever keep our hearts aglow with the anticipation of the birth of the Wonderful Counselor, Prince of Peace, and Light of the World; our Jesus, the one who carries the government and all of us upon His shoulders.

As we prepare ourselves to meet the light, let us remember:

Christ is my source, I cannot see apart from him.

Christ is my source, I cannot hear apart from him.

Christ is my source, I cannot speak apart from him.

 Christ is my source. I cannot live apart from him.

 Christ is my source, I cannot “be” apart from him.

Each day, be grateful for the small things in life.

Breathe in and breathe out Christ’s perfect Love!

“Waiting with me will bring comfort and hope.”
