Angels Come….hello world


Angels Come….hello world.

Bad day at the well….hello world


Have you ever had a bad day?  Or a worse day? How about a bad week, or bad month? 

I have been having a bad day at the well for over a month and don’t know why?  I prayed about it. Today, I read my bible and sought the Lord for a reason to what is going on, but I have had no answers. 

Today, I decided it is just a season of drought. You know, where the rain doesn’t fall for weeks on end. 

Today I went to the well and let down the bucket to see if the water level was high or low. I wanted a cold drink of water, not a tepid or cool drink.  Today, I needed a icy cold, teeth chattering drink from the well. I wanted to meet with Jesus and receive a new revelation. I wanted  relief from the drought.

I have been writing a book and I wondered if the time the book takes me away from spending time with the Lord is causing the drought. A few minutes ago, when I ask the Lord, He gave me this answer:

Nothing takes you away from me. I AM in your heart and where ever you are I AM.  Whatever you are doing, I AM doing it with you. My holiness demands a separation from sin and evil. I do not partake in the sin and evil of this world. I AM silent when sin or evil is working in your flesh. When you repent of the sin you commit,  My love will rescue you. My children do not recognize the sin they commit sometimes because it is so easy to slip into something without recognizing what you are slipping into. In your case, My Child, you have neglected your prayer time and your reading time and your worship time with Me. In this neglect, you have slipped back into flesh-working out problems, instead of Spirit-led working out of your problems. Your tongue has flapped more with deceit than you care to admit. Repent and run quickly to My arms. I will deliver and rescue and put you back on the path I sat you on in the fist place. You have left your first love and I desire you back in My arms.

Lord, I repent and I run to you. Thank you for showing me my sin. Thank you for directing my path into your arms. Thank you for rescuing me and setting my feet on the narrow path and thank you for loving me.  I am over  my bad day at the well.  The water is COLD!  I am HOT!

Amen

You Think?….hello world


Someone near to me asked me a question.  If the world is coming to an end, is it going to happen suddenly or slowly?  I started to think about that question and set my mind to what does other people think, what does the world think,  what do you think?

Well, as I contemplated the question, I decided to ask others:  You think the world is coming to an end?  Here are some answers I got.

Yes, in a million or so years.

Yes, but I don’t have a clue when!

NO.  The world won’t every come to an end unless maybe someone blows it up.

Yes, Someday in the future when we run out of everything.

Yes, but not in my life-time!

Yes, when the world gets into another world  war and blows itself up.

I got a lot more yes’s than I did no’s and i wondered if any one had read the bible of those asked.  Well, none had so they are just going on ‘what they think.’

What does the bible say? 

Read Eph 3:21

 

Priority One…hello world


Today I got up in a hurry. Jumped out of bed. Ran downstairs. Ate my breakfast. Jumped into my house coat because it was too cool for running around in my P.J.’s. Brushed my teeth.  And while standing there looking at myself in the mirror, I heard the Lord say: 

          “Forgot to say ‘good morning Lord’, didn’t you?”

Yes, I did.  Every morning when I awake, I open my eyes and say, “Good Morning, Lord!” and have a conversational prayer before I get out of bed.  Today I just jumped.

Loving Father is my first priority.  I call it “Priority One”.  He is the One I love with all my heart, mind, soul, and I never want that to change.  He is my number One Priority each day and everyday.  . . . . . and I don’t every want to forget to speak to Him daily.

I don’t want to take Him for granted. I want to show Him thankfulness for all He does for me, with me and to me.  I want to show Him love everyday, all day and even through the night.  When I show Him love and thankfulness, my mind will be focused on all the things that really matter in this life. 

“Good morning, Lord!  I love you and thank you for this day! I submit my mind, will and emotions to Your handling this day and take on the mind of Christ that I may know Your will for me today! I desire to walk in the light and stay out of the darkness.  In Light, I know the promises You have made to  me and I will walk therein today. I will honor You with obedience to Your will and serve You.  Lord, You are my way, my truth, my life today and everyday.  You are my Priority One!   Amen”

Dreams….hello world


Dreams are important.  Some dreams are more important than others.  Some of my dreams have brought me wisdom and understanding of something that was going on in my life that I needed some clarity on.  Some dreams are just the product of the pizza snack just before bedtime. 

However, some dreams stay on and linger in your mind and won’t let you go. These dreams are the ones I think you should pay attention to.  I just had one of those dreams lately and it won’t let me go. 

Father hears my prayers and I know He desires the best in life for me.  I desire to know Him better and better each day as life goes on and I give Him my hopes and dreams and the longing to live a meaningful life here and now.  I ask Him to help me fulfill the purpose for my life that He has laid out for me and not to let me forget that it is He that has called me and will provide me with strength and ability to perform that for which He has called me too.

I have said more than once that  we need to see what God is doing and get in there and do it with Him.  We should not just jump ahead and run head long into a project we devise.  When God says come and join me and let’s enjoy this moment together, we should just DO IT.  We need to run into His arms and explore all the possibilities He provides for us to experience and know that He will keep us safe in them.

We should not just seize the day, but seize hold of Father and run hand in hand with Him where-so-ever He takes us – the dream will become an adventure and He will lead us beside still waters to the table set before our enemies in His presence.   Sin will stay far from us if we will just stay close to His Father heart.

Lord, help us to use our time wisely and to pursue you for our daily bread!

Mission Impossible??…hello world


Do you feel like your life is a mission impossible?   Are you under attack from all sides?  Have you thought about giving up and charting a new course down another road?   

Well,  STOP and let’s regroup, get our armour re-polished and straight, find our knee pads and come together as the army of God and pray without ceasing so we can find strength to keep on keeping on……Remember who your Commander-in-Chief is. . . . . . the Head-of-the-Family is calling all His Children to the front of the battle because the Battle is His to fight. He will go before us and He will lead us into VICTORY.

Do you remember the story of the wall around Jerusalem that had been broken down and burned and the stones were heavy, the work tiring, the enemies were not happy the people were returning to rebuild the wall and their lives?? The enemy will do everything possible to stop the work of the Lord from being done in the days we live in.

Today is no different from those days, loved One.  Today seems like ‘mission impossible’ to us because we are about the Lord’s Work.  Time is short and the enemy is fighting us tooth and nail to stop souls from leaving the kingdom of darkness and moving into the kingdom of light.  Nehemiah had to work with one hand, pray and watch and build with the other hand.  Don’t be discouraged, when you are about the Lord’s Work, He will help you accomplish what He has called you to build.  (DO)..

God does not fail.  He will accomplish the work in you and with your help the work ‘out there’ that needs to be done.  Souls are coming into the Kingdom daily and as we speak out the Word of light, He opens the door, whispers the ‘key’ to the kingdom into the ears of those who have ears to hear what the Spirit says to them……  Your job is to keep whispering…. “Jesus is the answer to all your questions.”

Mission Impossible?    No, Beloved Child of God….The mission has been won, I read the last chapter ——–  WE WIN!

God’s Path….hello world


As I try  to draw near to Father, I suddenly realized (again) that today is the first day of the rest of my life.  If I deliberately walk with Him daily, He will give me wisdom for  the path He has set down for me to walk.  But if I deliberately choose to go my own way, then He is not responsible for whatever  mess I get myself into.

It is my choice to go to Father with questions that come to mind; it is my choice to go to Father and consult with Him on the big things that pop up in my life; it is my choice to make my own plans apart from Him….and I have to remember, when I don’t consult, when I don’t ask questions, when I run ahead and do it ‘my way’, then I am responsible for the out come and can’t blame Him or anyone else for what mess is covering me in the ‘pig pen’.

SO – Today I run to Father and bow before Him not only to pray, but to worship and praise and give thanks that He has written my name in the Lamb’s Book of Life.         And He reminds me that He is going to show me the beautiful path He has marked out for me; He is teaching me to be like His second Child so that I don’t wonder off the path like His first child did and get deceived by the enemy.  He says to me, Draw near to Me, my child and read my Word and I will give you the desires of your heart as I form the image of my Son in your heart. I will set you upon the path I have marked out for you and keep you so that I don’t have to pick up the broken pieces and put you back together again. Let us walk together so that you can avoid the disasters of life, for I see the future, and I will keep you from the enemy if you will trust and obey.

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!!!
