Get it, Got it, Git It!!!

Dear brothers, is your life full of difficulties and temptations? Then be happy,for when the way is rough, your patience has a chance to grow.  So let it grow, and don’t try to squirm out of your problems. For when your patience is finally in full bloom, then you will be ready for anything, strong in character, full and complete.  James 1:2-4 TLB

Did you get that? The written word of God says "be happy" when you go through test and trials because really and truly you can not grow if you don't go straight through...Don't try to find your way around the problem, because there is no escape hatch or rear exit. That is where you ask for wisdom and guidance to make the wise choice to ride the waves

    Though. in spite of the storm, keep riding the waves not giving up but submitting to His plan for your life. The Lord Jesus is the Master and He will lead you through.  God's sovereign will doesn't involve a party, He has your going through that something for a purpo…

Drink it up!!!

     We will have to wrestle with the flesh daily. It is a difficult and a narrow walk to be sold totally out in the Spirit all the time, and easy to walk in our carnal nature.  I know the Word of God says that our fleshly nature died when Jesus died. Our old nature has been buried and we should be living the resurrected life with Christ Jesus.  At times, I do not feel so resurrected as the Word of God states. I would be the first to tell you that it is very easy to get in the flesh.   

     There is a spiritual battle going on for our soul. One part wants no other thing but to destroy our body and soul. On the other side are forces that delight to see take our victory in the Spirit.

     You really have to be soaked in the river of grace. In other words, surrendered to Jesus one hundred percent through power of the Holy Spirit. Not so easy eh?  Being a Christian is not a cakewalk.  But as we submit daily to his will and His Word, He will talk to us and walk with us and teach up how to …

Open the Door!

     Its time for you to open the door....

     Maybe you have been hesitant. I see a door before you. It is your choice to open it or walk away.

     "I have given you the freewill because I want you to hear my voice and obey My Spirit...and DO my will."

"No test or temptation that comes your way is beyond the course of what others have had to face.  

All you need to remember is that God will never let you down; he'll never let you be pushed past your limit; 

He will always be there to help you come through it.

--1 Corinthians 10:30 (MSG)

I run for dear life to God,     I’ll never live to regret it. Do what you do so well:     get me out of this mess and up on my feet. Put your ear to the ground and listen,     give me space for salvation. Be a guest room where I can retreat;     you said your door was always open! You’re my salvation—my vast, granite fortress.
Psalm 71:1-3 (MSG)

Where is Your Safety Net?

     It is amazing to me when the Holy Spirit brings me a topic for a blog because sometimes I must admit I have to go to the dictionary to define what I "see" in my  heart.
A vision I am seeing in my spirit is a person someone walking a tightrope way up high in the air. From there I get the words "trapeze artist."   I google trapeze artist and I see all these acrobats twirling in the air and flying though the air. Then I wonder what a trapeze really is cause frankly I have no clue. Well, I get the images pulled up to see that a trapeze is a swing way up high in the air. People can actually develop this acrobats as a skill? Yes is the answer I get.

     In Christianity, our faith could be compared to being a trapeze artist or a tight rope walker.  We are not by far skilled as at anything at first. But God has called each one of us to be skillful in whatever gifts we have been given. We are babes at first and always will be children of God. In time He develops us into…

God's Inner Healing

     If you take the opportunity to look at the above description on my blog site I have taken the time to address the theme to something that is heavy on my heart this season of my life and that is God's inner healing. 

I believe that we can have inner childhood wounds so deep that we live in so much turmoil inwardly. At least I know that I do, and God has given me the courage to admit that. We run, we hide, we dodge God to be best of our ability. That inner child within us desires to come forth.

This goes for men too as well as woman. That childlike part of us is hidden under many layers and masks in our adult life. You, yes you know exactly what I am talking about. Those wounds go very deep and the hurt so real in life that we think that part of us has died.

I say its time to revive that child hood innocence, and that is only going to happen by have real quality time with God.

     God's love runs deep and strong for you and you alone? Do you know just how much He wants to embr…
