YOU ARE!!!

space_shining_star_2114

You are a masterpiece fearfully and wonderfully created by our Creator, uniquely made for a purpose, so of no one, be an imitator.

 

Life may not be happening the way you thought it would, things may not be going the way you think they should,

 

but know, for your life, God still has a master plan, I know that the enemy has told you time and time again, that it’s over for you, you can’t do it, but God sent me to tell you, “YES YOU CAN”, because,

 

YOU ARE!!!

 

You are His, and He is yours, He is the way when closed are all the other doors,

 

Yeah, you’ve been through this, that and the other thing, though none of it was meant to take you out, but rather to give you a testimony, and a song of thanksgiving to sing.

 

Our God has been with you through it all, right there to lift you up again after every fall.

 

He’s extending His mighty right hand unto you even now, saying: get up one more time, while keeping your eyes stayed on “ME”, not on the mountain that you have yet to climb; because,

 

YOU ARE!!!

 

You are a jewel, a diamond in the rough, though, to get that polished shine is never easy, but indeed very tough.

 

All that you need is already on the inside of you, but the Holy Spirit is needed to shape it, mold it, and to bring it through.

 

So trust, and know that our God is just.

 

Through the sacrificial Blood of The Lamb you have the victory already, it’s not in your own will and plan, but in our Savior’s  will that you must walk, not perfectly but steady.

 

All of your life has been preparation for such a time as this, so arise to the challenges, so that, God’s divine purpose for your life, you won’t miss.

 

It’s your time to; through the Power of The Holy Spirit, shine like a star, it’s your time to show the world, it’s God’s child that,

 

YOU ARE!!!

COMING THROUGH!!!

 

Coming Screenshot 2016-04-05 at 11.59.55 PM Through

 

Believe that you are coming through this hot and dry season, it may not be fun, it may not be easy but it is all for a reason.

Your being prepared for that place of purpose, that place of destiny, from all the bondage your being loosed, you’re being set free, and free indeed.

The Spirit of God is with you every step of the way, so know that you’re not alone, our God is still on His throne, He’s shaping, molding you more and more to be here on earth, Jesus’ clone.

The game is already won, through the perfect, sinless life, death and Resurrection of our Heavenly Father’s only begotten Son.

The ultimate sacrifice that He made, the path to victory that He laid, even when victory seems non-existent, or delayed,

remember, you’re just,

 

COMING THROUGH!!!

 

Going through the wilderness to reach that place of promise is sometimes a must, despite the pain and discomfort, remaining in God’s will is the best place in the whole wide world to be and in that, you can trust, even when it seems as though your dreams, your plans has turned to dust.

Father knows best, He is “LOVE”, He is “TRUTH”, and He has invited the weary to come to Him so He can give us rest, so keep your eyes stayed on The Lord and you “WILL” past this test.

Our Lord will not leave you in this place, so you can keep your faith, know that God is there even when you can’t hear His voice, or see His face.

God the Father, His only begotten Son and His Holy Spirit is using even this to make you whole, make you new, it’s to His will, His word that We are to remain true, knowing that, in the mighty name of Jesus, “WE ARE”,

 

COMING THROUGH!!!

 

 

 

 

 

That Name!!!

image

That Name which is above every name, in Heaven, and here on Earth,
This is the Name that holds the highest value, it holds the most worth.

There is healing in That Name, deliverance in That Name, total freedom in That Name,
It’s now over two thousand years after the sinless life, crucifying death and His resurrection, and That Name still has world wide fame,
though many “still” reject His claim.

In That Name lies salvation,
it’s to That Name that we are to give hours upon hours of meditation,
it’s in That Name that we find strength and courage to move forward with no fear, no hesitation,
it’s That Name that gives us hope in a hopeless situation.

It’s to This Name that “EVERY” knee will bow, “inevitably”,
this is That Name that has ultimately,
set us free,
free from the consequences of our sin and iniquity.

He’s The Lord of lord’s, King of kings,
joy deep down in one’s soul is what He bring,
and from that point it’s songs of thanksgiving that we sing.

It’s through the power of That Name that we are able to go straight to our Heavenly Father to plead our case,
He gave an invitation, saying: come to Me when you are wearied in your race.

At the mentioning of That Name satin himself will flee,
if you don’t believe me,
then taste for yourself and see.

The Lord “is” good,
His Name is Jesus and I promise, you will never again be the same,
once you call out, submit and surrender to;

That Name!!!

But God!!!

image

Temptation has come time and time again to overtake me,
It’s dark, and at times lonely in the midst of the valley.

This is where the “voice” of God is rarely heard,
where one’s vision is often blured.

This is where we must stand on what we “already” know,
with understanding that on the other side of this, God’ glory is sure to show.

The spirit indeed is stong, but the flesh is ever so weak,
temptation is coming and it’s power from on high that I diligently seek.

Then I turn and look to the side,
and temptation has jumped in to hitch a ride.

It’s in these situations that our Lord has promised to make a way out,
so I’ll stand strong in Him, I won’t slumber, I won’t complain and I won’t pout.

But rather give praise and honor to my Lord in any and every situation,
even temptation.

Then sit back and watch how He divinely intervene,
and in ways that I never could have seen.

When it’s all said and done,
and the battle has been won!

Those who has witnessed this valley, wilderness experience will look and say;

But God!!!

Midlife!!!

image

   I’m “44” yrs old and I’ve been doing some serious soul searching lately. Searching the depth of my being from as far back as I can remember up until today, “Sunday Sep. 27th”
   I’m in a place where I wouldn’t have particularly chosen for myself at this point in my life. I’m truly out of my comfort zone, but I know ultimately that I’m in a good place despite the discomforts.
   I have heard the saying: We must lose in order to win, and at “44” I have a better understanding of this statement than ever before. See, over the last decade I have lost more and more things, and most importantly, more and more of me; my will, my way, my prideful thiughts, as well as some people.
   As I sit here empty and isolated, I shout at the top of my voice: “THANK YOU JESUS”, because I have finally reached this place where He can do within me whatever it is that He need to do…

Midlife!!!

I am out of His way,
it’s only His voice that I’m seeking to obey.

For it is He who has kept me, it is He that has brought me through,
and from this point forward it is He that I will stick to like glue.

Casting away all division, confusion and strife,
It’s official, I’ve reached,

Midlife!!!

Shifted has been my paradigm,
I’m dancing to a new rhythm, a new wryme.

If I never get back all the things that I had,
I promise I won’t be mad.

If it’s not God’s will for me, I count it but dung,
it’s true, those things caused me to sing but it wasn’t a righteous song that I sung.

I’m not where I would like to be,
but I’m no longer deceived, I mean, I can clearly see,
mind, body, soul and spirit…I’m free.

Yes, things have been carved away from me, and it seem as though it was done with a butcher’s knife,
all for my good and God’s glory, and I realized this now at this place called,

Midlife!!!

Profound Revelation!!! (Don’t Be Deceived By The Ambiance Of Darkness)

I am a 2nd shifter, and as far back as I can remember the majority of my writing has been done late at night. I have always loved the night. I’m able to fully function in the night hours. So when I write, late night, I prefer the ambiance of minimal light.

Well, this worked fine until a few weeks ago when my eyes would begin to water, the words on the page would become blurred and I would get a slight headache (evidence of getting older :)). My very fist thought was that I would have to change my writing schedule from the p.m. to the a.m.. Then the Holy Spirit spoke to me gently, saying, if you gave yourself more light by turning on the bigger ceiling light then you’ll be O.K. (duuugh, that should have been my first thought).

Nevertheless, I turned on the bigger brighter light and haven’t had a problem since, but the Holy Spirit continued dealing with me in regard to this Light and darkness thing. He used my preference of the ambiance that is ushered in by using minimal light to reveal to me other areas of my life where I preferred the ambiance of the darkness rather than the truth of the Light.

I was then led by the Holy Spirit to 1 John 1:5 (amp)

And this is the message [the message of promise] which we have heard from Him and now are reporting to you: God is Light, and there is no darkness in Him at all [no, not in any way];

then I was led to John 3:19 (K.J.V.)

And this is the condemnation, that Light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than Light, because their deeds were evil.

Yes, I admit, I do like the ambiance of a dimly lit, romantic setting, but through this experience the Holy Spirit brought back to my memory, that in Heaven, we will live, move and have our being in the fullness of the Light of  God’s countenance, 24/7, where there is absolutely no darkness at all, and NO SIN. Now what greater ambiance and romance is there than this?

My Prayer:

Father God, I thank you for this revelation on Light and darkness in which you have graciously given to me. Father, forgive me for those dark areas of my life in which I love rather than Light. Father, give me the willingness and ability, through the power of the Holy Spirit which dwell within me to walk out of these dark areas straight into your Marvelous Light; in Jesus Mighty name I pray, AMEN…

Next Chapter!!!

This present chapter of my life has been very long, and full of pain…strong winds and heavy rain…it was only the grace of my God that kept me from going insane.

Finally, I can see relief…but not without one last stagger backwards caused by a blow from the murderer, the destroyer, the thief.

The enemy may think that he has won this war…ohhhh, but little does he know, there’s so much more…in store.

Yeah, I’m walking away naked and bare…but with victory, because I’m walking away, and in the face of Jesus I continue to stare.

All that the enemy has stolen from me in this chapter he can surly have, because my future, he can’t touch…what my God has revealed to me about Himself in this chapter has been much…I pray for Jesus to reveal Himself “MIGHTILY” to “ALL” those who think He is just a crutch.

Though I would not want to go through this again, I thank God for allowing this season…I’ve learned so much already, but only time will reveal the full purpose and reason.

Despite the pain and confusion in this chapter there’s still so much that I’ve been working toward…one foot in front the the other is the only way to move forward.

Old things has passed away, behold, all things becoming new…it’s to my destiny and God’s purpose that I vow to remain true.

I won’t be destracted by the enemy, a.k.a.the great destractor…I’m walking out of the old straight into this,

Next Chapter!!!

Revelation Through Our Occupation!!!

In Febuary 2015 I will have earned my keep as a driver in the state of Michigan for “12” yrs. Here in Michigan we experience some of the worst winter weather in the world. Our weather here is very unpredictable. One minute it can be a pretty pleasant day, then the next minute it can be a major storm brewing.

In my almost “12” yrs as a driver I’ve driven through some of the most treacherous weather imaginable. Over the years I’ve learned how to make necessary adjustments in my driving to make it to my destination safely. I’ve also learned, or should I say, in the process of learning how to make these very same adjustments when driving through the storms of life, which can be just as treacherous.

The first adjustment would be to slow down so that my tires wont lose traction, and I end up ultimately losing control of the vehicle. The storms of life warrants that same first response. It is always harder to hear the voice of God when moving through life at a fast pace. We should be slow to speak in these seasons because our first natural response would be to speak on the power of the storm, instead of the power of our God.

We should also be slow to wrath, being conscious of the fact that the storm has the potential to ignite that anxiety that provokes wrath. See, in the midst of these storms it’s a natural response to allow the spirit of anxiousness to creep in, because we are in a hurry to get to that piont of destination, that place of comfort and safety.

This brings me to the next adjustment which is removing my eyes from the clock inside the vehicle so that I wont get destracted by the time, and fixing my eyes on the road in front of me. Not worrying about the extra time that it’s taking to reach my destination. I would much rather keep my wheels moving forward at a slower pace than to find myself sitting in a ditch. That would definately provoke anxiety and wrath.

Removing all distractions from our view, and fixing our eyes on, The Way, The Truth and The Life, also known as Jesus is vital in making it through the storms of life as well. Jesus Desciples were inside of a boat and saw Him walking on the water towards thier boat. The Apostle Peter asked Jesus to allow him to walk out to meet Him on the water. Well Jesus told Peter, COME, and Peter began to walk on water successfully as long as he kept his eyes fixed on Jesus, but began quickly sinking when he had taken his eyes off of Jesus and fixed them on the storm instead.(Matthew 14:24-31)

These are just a few of the revelations that God has given me through my occupation. I believe that God is speaking to His people all the time, giving insites and revelation through the occupations of His people. Jesus told the apostle Peter, before Peter became an apostle, that He would make Him a fisher of men. See Peter was a fisherman,therefore he understood that concept very well.

Jesus also used the analogy of seed planting many times troughout His ministry because thier were many farmers in that day who would fully understand this concept. I believe that our God is still giving insite and revelation through our occupations even on today. So I encourage you to listen closely for the voice of God which just may be trying to give you revelation through your occupation.

Blessings to you…

LOVE…GRACE…PEACE…

Merry Christmas!!!
