Don’t Give Up!

No matter what has happened or is happening, be aware of the living, loving Father who watches over your life with every beat of your heart.  He knows the wrong’s the hurts and hurdles. He knows the plots the schemes and the traps. He sees them all and says to you, “My child, DO NOT be afraid! Though sorrow may last for a night my JOY…my COMPLETE supernatural JOY will reach down from the heavens and wrap you in the morning light. Yes, many have come against you, many fiery darts of the enemy.”

But your Father says…“I will hold you!  I will carry you!  I will strengthen you! Do not be afraid!  I have seen all and in My time…in My way it will all make sense.  As of today this moment in time walk by faith AND NOT SIGHT take My hand!  I know you don’t understand but trust Me when I say I love you with an everlasting love and THIS IS NOT THE END!  You’re my child! I love you.  I have purpose for you. I have given you the sword of the Spirit. The power of the Holy Spirit and the authority in my name!  You will walk and not faint.  You will run and not grow weary!  I say REST.  Rest in My grace that is your place. Those dreams those desires…Yes, everything will come to completion as you trust in Me. This IS NOT THE END. SO LAUGH AND BE JOYFUL!  SO SING AND SHOUT THE VICTORY! Together with Me WE WIN!”

For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.  So we fix our eyes on what is seen, but on what is unseen.  For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.  – 2 Corinthians 4:17-18

God will bless you If you don’t give up when your faith is being tested. James 1:12

Listen

Life is a daily classroom of teaching and instruction, if we are willing to listen and follow through. My most recent lesson was simple, profound and forever life changing. Here’s the lesson;

Don’t ignore the prompts and nudges from the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is not only the Comforter but the Great Teacher and Guide.

I woke up absolutely consumed with thoughts of a cousin who was currently in the intensive care unit.  It was a cousin I had never been really that close to but that really didn’t matter at the moment. All that mattered was him!  I had to go see him, nothing was more important.

It wasn’t a still small voice giving me an instruction. It was just an impression in my spirit—a knowing that something wasn’t quite right.  I reached out to one of his children and asked, “Is your dad saved? Has he made Jesus the Lord of his life?”  She said “I’m not sure.” I told her we have to make sure. Let’s make sure together!

Everything I expected upon arrival at the hospital was present the grief, the pain, the tears.  His face is still in my thoughts right now as I type this.  The way he held my hand when we prayed and how he wouldn’t let go. The way he said “I love you too.” It is all still very heavy on my thoughts.

Sadly he had been shown “religion” his entire life and not a “relationship” with a living, loving Father. The church had failed him but I was driven to remind him that Jesus would never ever fail him. I asked him the greatest question you could ever ask at his bed side, “Have you ever made Jesus the Lord of your life?”  His answer was solid and truthful, “NO.” My response was. “Would you like to?” His answer again came solid and truthful “YES.”   I asked him to pray a prayer with me and he repeated the prayer with his children and grandchildren surrounding the bed.  He repeated every word strong, fully aware and fully sincere.  It was in that moment that the presence of the Lord came and heaven touched earth.  When we finished that prayer my cousin said something that I will never forget as long as I live he said, “We did it!” I sobbed! He said it again, “We did it.”  It was almost like he knew how God had pushed me all the way to his bedside.  That he was hanging on for just this moment in time so that now he could move on with complete Peace that he had made Jesus his Lord!

At 11:00 a.m. he was born again from above, translated out of Darkness into the Kingdom of God’s dear Son. Saved! Safe! Secure! Forgiven!

At 5:08 p.m. the same day he was Home in Heaven.

Since his passing I’ve been emotional, unable to focus and changed. Just changed! I’m thankful for the Holy Spirit, thankful for an open heart, thankful for a God who answers when we call, thankful for JESUS who defeated death, Hell, and the Grave.

THANKFUL.

On the way to the hospital that morning the enemy had flooded my mind with several lies.  Thoughts that ran in my mind; “You’re going to minister? Your own life is a hot mess!” I could almost hear Satan’s mocking laughter.  “Someone else will do it, another minister is sure to be at his bedside.”  ALL LIES! NO ONE was there.   And if we all had waited for our lives to be perfect we wouldn’t have a church or ministry on this planet. We are all broken and that’s the exact reason why we need JESUS!

Life lesson:

When God whispers a name to you, when you can’t get that person off your mind and heart, RUN to that person. God has a reason for those promptings. Don’t assume someone else will help! God’s speaking to you! You’re not here to just live and die. You are here on assignment from Heaven to fulfill Gods plan. You are not a human being having a spiritual experience you’re a spiritual being having a human experience! This is not our home.

Who do you have on your heart right now? What’s God saying? Obey! God’s on the move and God wants to use you today.

Listen.

Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I. Send me!” Isaiah 6:8

2016 is *so* yesterday

Be encouraged! I speak Life, Peace, and Exceeding  JOY along with clarity to you in Jesus name.  I pray Holy Spirit, the Great Teacher, and Guide may show you the direction you need in 2017. I believe 2017 will be a time of Heaven On Earth with Miracles that will flow not only from ministers but from every day Jesus followers including the youth and children. I believe 2017 will be GLORIOUS in every way.

January is officially here and it’s “Sanctity of Human Life Month.”
I want to give you an opportunity to join a movement with me that is radically pro love, pro-family, and pro-JESUS.  This is an invitation to make real change in the lives of our nation’s most vulnerable, not through shaming or picketing or even defending, just through LOVE.

Please help more women in crisis situations see there are alternatives to abortion… that people do care about them, pray for them, and want them and their families to thrive.
