Walk with ME….hello world


I spoke to a man who was so sure he was saved even though he doesn’t read his bible, because ‘ I don’t understand what I am reading’, he doesn’t go to church because, ‘I work all the time”, he doesn’t pray unless “I have a real problem and I can’t work it out myself.”  But his comment was:  ” I know I am saved because when I was seven years old, I joined the church and the feeling I got was so wonderful and it felt so good. I am a member of the church since I was 7 years old and I know and believe that I am saved because I remember the feeling. 

He is now  53 years old.  When I asked him about his relationship with the Lord, his reply was, “I believe in God. I don’t read the bible because I don’t understand it, but I believe in God.”  When I asked him about his relationship with other Christian’s, his comment was, “I am not a people person. I don’t like being around people.  I don’t care about them. I believe in God and that is all that matters.”  When I asked him about lying to others, he replied, “sometimes you have to lie not to hurt someone or to get what you want.”

He compared himself with a woman I know who is living with a man she is not married too, who believes in God, goes to church, does not read her bible either and does not like people period.  She has no friends, only the man she lives with matters to her.  When he called her name and compared himself to her, I just listened quietly and thought….. Comparing yourself to other people is not God’s idea of comparison for life, living and pursuit of happiness.

God has a WORD for people:

              Walking with Me is not a complex endeavor, my Child    Many people claim that I  make too many rules, or that I require too much of them.  But   what do I require of My children?  I made it clear through My prophet Micah.

  I desire that My people act justly toward others—-being fair,  honest, filled with integrity.  That they love mercy and pass it along to everyone they meet.  And that they simply walk with Me, in humility and thankfulness for all I have done.

   When My Son came, he said it another way:  He told His listeners to love Me with all their heart, soul, mind and strength, and to love their neighbors as themselves.      Different words, same message.

   Love Me.  Love Others.   Not complicated at all. 

God does not require anything of unbelievers except they REPENT, agree with His Word about His Son;   Jesus died on the cross for sin, shed blood that you can have eternal life and ask Him to allow Jesus to come into their heart and make their lives pleasing to the Father.

Simple, yet direct to the point.  Hard? No, repenting is believing God and agreeing that you are a sinner in need of a savior and simply asking Him for One.   He already did everything necessary for you to get saved.

Repent, Ask, Believe…..

what more do you think you need to do?  He already done it all for you.

Wonderful Made in His Image…hello world


Hi My Beloved Friend and Family:

I have a word of encouragement for you today.  Did you know that before the earth was formed that Abba Father knew you and me.  Even before the universe came into existence, Abba loved us.  Did you know that He has wonderfully made us in His image?

Did you know that He put all things in place and knit you into your mama’s womb and with a loving breath into your soul, He gave you direction.  He told your eyes to be colorful, He told your nose to grow beautifully, He gave you lips to whisper His name, He gave you intelligence to know Him personally when you grew  up.  He gave you His love, His Son, His peace and whispered gently into your tiny ear, “you are mine and you can choose Me when you grow up —- I will be thinking about you all the time, I will send angles to watch over you daily, I will watch you while you sleep and when you wake, I will be there waiting for you to notice Me. I will never forget about you even if you forget about Me.  I will stand quietly waiting for you to come to Me to receive My free gift.  I AM eagerly waiting for your call, inviting Me in, My Child.”

Abba Father, thank you for watching over us and loving us and being there.  I am so glad that you have heard my call and have written my name in Your “Lamb’s Book of Life.”     How about you?

My Times In His Hand…hello world


I have been gone for a while…have been taking some time alone with Him…have been pondering the times we live in and how it is going out there for you, wondering if you are  feeling like we are living in a ‘wonderland’ of what is going to happen next…..

During this pondering-time, I have come to the conclusion that we are called for such a time as this.  I know my times are in His hand. All of us that have been born in 1948 and forward are in the last generation with the God of all times and all circumstances.   He has called us to be His servants  in this time and place and at just the right time and in the order to usher in change, hope or deliverance to those we come in contact with on a daily basis.

He has established us where we are today and has called us to this exact time, this exact place, these exact circumstances, all the situations we run into, every person we come in contact with is part of our purpose.   He knows our fears, He knows He can trust us and He knows that we will follow His Word and do it.   He is the promise that we must give to others, He is the peace that passes all understanding that we can provide as we are faithful to obey His very word to us to go and make disciples.

He who has called us is faithful to perform that for which He is sending us to do.  Seeing what God is doing and getting in there to be His hands,  His smile, His listening ear; we can know for certain that with God all things are possible and rest in the knowledge and the assurance that we have been called to such a time as this  and know that our times are in His hand.

We need, as I have come to understand, to rest in  God.  I mean REST in GOD!

Don’t do anything unless He tells you to do it and get busy when He speaks and DO IT! The doing will be easy and you will be at peace in the doing.  His work is His doing and He will give you the grace and the authority to do it.

Ester 4:14

Chosen…..hello world


God’s people must clothe themselves as His own picked representatives, His chosen  ones who should be purified and holy and well-beloved by God by putting on behavior marked by tender-hearted pity and mercy, kind feeling, gentle ways and patience— which is tireless, long-suffering and take  power to endure whatever comes, with good temper.  We are to be gentle and forbearing with each other and if  we  have a difference against each other; readily pardoning each other; even as the Lord has freely forgiven us, so should we also forgive.

As the people of God we must put on love and enfold ourselves with the bond of perfectness —-which will bind us together in ideal harmony.  We are to let the peace from the Lord act as umpire continually in our hearts.  We need to be thankful, appreciative and give thanks and praise to the Lord daily.. 

As the body of Christ  we should let the Word spoken by Christ the Messiah have its home in our hearts and minds and dwell in us  in all richness, as we tech admonish and train each other in all insight, intelligence,  and wisdom in spiritual songs making melody to God our Father with grace in our hearts.  Everything we do  in word or deed we should do everything in the name of the Lord and in dependence upon His person giving praise to Father through Him.

Let us be example in this world that show the glory of God, the peace of God as we pray.

Heart’s Desire…hello world


What is your heart’s desire?   If you could ask for and received your most intimate desire, what would you ask for?   Would it be money to travel,  live anywhere in the world like Hawaii for the winter and Colorado for the summer?

Would you ask for houses, boats, cars and trains?   Maids to do your house cleaning, butlers to open your doors, pool-boys to clean your pool in the house of your dreams?  Would you ask for patience, peace and property, health and wealth? 

I thought about it one day for a long time and I decided I would ask for wisdom. Solomon asked for wisdom and it pleased God.   God gave him wisdom and to wisdom, God added to him to be the riches man ever to live.

I would pray in the getting of wisdom from God that I would use it wisely and not turn to the riches and  become a despot.  I would pray that God would keep me on the path He set down before me and that I would come to the end of my life with love as the primary thing, able to give unto others as He has given unto me.  

Because God is the source of wisdom, using wisdom make God  and me partners in the life I live before Him and others. I pray that He and I would partnership to a long and health relationship with each other and all that we come in contact with and no matter what He called me to do I would do it for His glory and honor and we would walk side by side till I walk on home to be with Him in His house. 

1 Kings 6:12

Wisdom for the Journey…


How does your day go?    Do you jump out of bed, rush to get dressed, grab a quick dry toast and cup of coffee and be running on down the road as quickly as possible to get to work?

Father said for all of us to come first thing in the morning to His presence and talk to Him.  He wants us to walk with Him along the ‘life-journey’ He has prepared for us and to get there, we have to go to Him first. If we remember to go to Him to ask Him for wisdom, direction, advice,  before making decision, He will help us to avoid some hazards along the way. 

Sometimes we make plans and leave Him out of the equation. We run ahead without seeking His advice.  We jump off the cliff thinking it is a bump in the road and when we fall head long down the long dark tunnel, He will reach down and pick us up and put us back on the right path….sometimes it takes longer than others to get back on, because we fume and fight and blame Him for our big mess.

When we draw near to God and His Word, when we pray and seek His face, He will guide us along the green pastures, by the still waters, across the great divide and out on the right road.   He has the best plans for us….we just need His wisdom for the journey on a daily basis.

Think about it…..

Message from Who?…hello world


Children of God, be on your guard. Many people are teaching nice sounding messages–but messages that are contrary to God’s Word.  How can you tell the difference?   Read God’s Word and test the spirits (messages) against what thus says the Lord.  Do a little checking to see if what they are saying lines up with what God’s word says…..Do a little checking up on what they are teaching, take notes and compare it to what the Word says.  Check to see what the teacher believes about God’s Word…do they believe that every word is inspired by God,  are they Holy in their teaching, are they telling the total Truth about God and who He really is? Does their lives match up with what they say they believe?

There is only One Way, One Truth and One Life that ever lived up to the scriptures?  Keep your eyes on the messenger and if his/her life does not match up with what is written, be very wary of the message.  Remember, God gives you wisdom and He helps you if you ask Him…..so be wise and discerning and listen with the Spiritual Ears to hear if it matches to the written word.

The message from God lines up with what is written….always.

Bless not Curse….hello world


Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits:  Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases…….Psalms 103:1-3

In a world that is cursing the Lord, cursing their family members, cursing their neighbors, cursing their children, cursing each other and cursing perfect strangers……how long do you think this can go on before the End comes?

The fool has said in his heart, there is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity, there  is none that does good.  God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God. Every one of them is gone back;  they are altogether become filthy; there is none that does good, no not one.   Psalms 53: 1-4

You reap what you sow.  It is a law of nature and it is true of the good and evil.  So if you continue to curse, you will reap cursing…..if you bless another, you will reap blessing….

The meek shall inherit the earth, and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace; the wicked plots against the just, and gnashed upon him with his teeth.              The Lord shall laugh at him, for he sees his day is coming…Ps 37: 11-13

Why don’t we wait patiently upon the Lord???.   You know that He will bring us up out of a horrible  pit and a miry clay and set our feet upon a ROCK and establish our goings?  He will put a new song in our mouth, even praise unto our God, and many will see it and fear, and shall trust in the Lord.

Rejoice Children, Obedience brings rich blessing.  Read My Word, listen with the ears of Spirit… because My Word is full of power, it will give you power to hear it and to keep it and in the keeping it, you will be blessed.

Physical or Spiritual…hello world


My physical therapist insists that the way to achieve true happiness and to feel better after a massage is to come back and do it again next week….and to keep on keeping on what I start each day…..  So far today, I have finished a whole bag of potato chips,  a package of  bitesized  pepper mint patties, and a chocolate cake…..I feel better already!        JUST KIDDING!

Why is it when you talk to God, it is praying, but when He talks to you, you’re crazy? Why can’t one have a spiritual therapist who talks to them like a physical therapist does?   (My Spiritual therapist is Holy and knows all)

 I was reading my morning devotional and the Lord spoke to me again about some things He spoke to me about yesterday.  Do you remember me telling you that He wanted me to organize and do away with some things in my life?   I started to do it yesterday and guess what I found?   15  bibles, (3 KJV, 12 different translations),    3 commentaries,  3 dictionaries, 1 expository dictionary of bible words, 1 Bible Readings for the home, 1 Dispensational Truth of the World by Clarence Larkin, John G. Lake’s Life story, 1 Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the bible, 2 devotionals, 5 books on prayer, so many individual book studys that I didn’t count them, so many books about what other people believe that I didn’t count those either…… the Lord stopped me and said:  “Do you NOW know why I asked you to get organized?”  I answered with, “Yes, but I use all these to study and read and when someone asked me, I get one and give them the answer from Your Word so that they know that I am not just making all this up.”  His answer back to me, “You know the answers, you know Me, you only need one bible, one commentary, one of all the things I have provided you with. I want you to give the rest away to someone who does not have a bible or commentary or book and spend more time with Me. I AM coming soon and I have much to teach you between now and then. The deep things are only found in My presence, being taught by My Spirit and I Am preparing Mine for what is coming ….he that has an ear to hear will hear what My Spirit says! I AM calling out to My Children in these last days to listen, follow Me and open even the darkest parts of yourselves to Me; I AM here to bring you light and life in these last days. Obedience is better than sacrifice…”

This is Joy, signing off for today so that I can get busy about the Master’s business of getting organized and giving things away…..

He is Risen! ….hello world


He is Risen….that is the truth and if He was not risen, you would have nothing to worry about if you believe not….

God gave us choices to make and even told us to ‘choose life’  –  many times we forget that He who created us with an amazing mind also gave us a brain that controls actions in us that are involuntary….like breathing..How many of us think to breath and to tell our hearts to beat….??????

If you got a brain today,  choose wisely and do right.   It makes God happy to see you using the brain He gave you to think before you speak, act wisely about the things of this world and seek peace with all men and with God. 

God will give you wisdom as He sees you making good choices.

He IS RISEN!!!
