Run

Oh how easily we can become distracted.  Yes, we have just celebrated the resurrection.  I found it difficult as too many places are too busy pushing their agenda and have forgotten about the agenda of our risen Lord.  What is happening?  Why are we so caught up in having gifts and are missing our gift? Why are we so focused on what others are doing and we lose our path?  Why can we not celebrate the journey of Jesus which has secured our journey?  Why?  

We have become too distracted.  We have begun to believe our own hype, and I guarantee that will not take us too far. Can we please call out for help?  Can we please recognize that we are lost?  We need help now.  Too many lies, too much deceit, too little respect for the things of God.  Look at you!  No, don't look at anyone else, look at self.  Ask, "is it me?" not "what is she talking about?"  

So you have made it through your fasting.  Now what? Are you any better?  Have you become more contemplative?  Are you walking closer with God?  Come on.  That is what it is about.  Don't stop now.   Run . . .run to follow Him . . .run to get that closer walk . . .run to let yourself to be wooed by God's love for you.  Oh He loves you, that is why Jesus accomplished his mission.  Let us walk together to see where our journey takes us. We can walk assured that we are not alone.  enough for now.

There is a Difference.

I find it intriguingly sad how when we are at times bombarded by the enemy, we miss the attack.  Of course, this is for those who can understand that spiritual fact.  The sad part is that we don't recognize the attack soon enough and we that we don't reach out to another in community.  You see, the enemy loves it when we isolate (to lick our wounds).  Yes, there is a difference between isolating and retreating to the embrace of God.  There is a difference.  We must be clear what we are doing.  We must clear who the enemy is.

(This is not about the news, but since I got it, I will give it). The news and media will help spin a tale that takes you where they want you to go; that is their job.  You must be clear of what is real, and what is not. Learn to ask the real questions.  Learn to hear Holy Spirit's guidance. That is where you will receive real answers to your real questions. There is a difference. 

Be clear of the deceit of the enemy.  Be clear that the enemy is not your sister, your brother.  Oh we must hear clearly Holy Spirit and be mindful that it is not our voice nor the voice of deceit.  There is a difference.  Even in the midst of a turmoil event or even in a warning that may be unnerving we find peace with Holy Spirit.  With that lying spirit we are spun into the turmoil with the mess.  There is a difference.  Today, watch what God is doing. enough for now.

You can Change

Have you ever consented to something and found out that it was not what you wanted to spend time doing?  What did you do with it?  I consented to receiving an email blog from someone I once knew when in high school.  I am finding that it comes too much and the views are not my views. 

There comes a time when you have to be clear of the why you do a thing.  In this case - it was to support.  But my support is not giving me a contented feeling.  So I shall stop receiving the email.

That was fairly simple- but how many times do we continue along a path that we are not comfortable- all because we are trying to support?  It is not a path that Holy Spirit has guided you on but a path of people pleasing?  You do not have to continue.  Get clarity from Holy Spirit and then follow that path.  Let the other junk go.  Take a new deep breath. enough for now.

God Still Is

My goodness.  There is so much going on with so many believers.  So many decisions to be made, so many 'what ifs'.  I have heard so many sad stories that make no sense, all in a short time. People are hurting- in physical and emotional pain.  Now that is not normal; so I'm thinking that the enemy has stepped up the attack, as so many believers in this season of Lent are partaking in spiritual disciplines of abstinence or engagement.  The thing about it- is that we are doing it together and that causes concern for the enemy.  Hang in there. Do not be confused or distracted.  Stay focused and in prayer as God Still Is- God is still in charge, still merciful, still protecting; still all knowing, still all seeing, still everywhere at the same time, still loving you.  God is still all of that and more!

That is enough right there.  God is still so much more than anything the enemy can do.  And you are still in God's care.  If you feel weak, then be carried.  If you feel sad, then be encouraged.  If you feel confused, then listen.  Oh I bless you with from Holy Spirit.  I silence the voice of the enemy.  I silence your voice.  If you need to grieve- do so, and then let God have it.  Hold on, stay focused, and watch what God is doing.  Blessings of peace! enough for now.

It has Begun

Yesterday marked the first day of Lent.  I encourage you to join me by walking this time in closer contemplation of the journey that Jesus took - for us.  Yes, I encourage either a spiritual discipline of abstinence or engagement if it takes you closer to a place of preparation, prayer, and discipline. Blessings as you become more aware of who you are. enough for now.

A Beautiful Blessing

I had a beautiful blessing the other day.  I was not feeling well and had to do some writing.  (who lives in another state) did not know this but texted me to bless me with a day of productivity.  Now I do understand the power in the blessing.  It is a divine power that we have been given.  And I constantly bless others with what I hear from Holy Spirit; yet I do not receive many blessings. Well not in the same vein; this is not a complaint, but an observation. My blessings abound from other ways.  You know God has no limits.  So, when my son blessed me, I felt empowered to finish what I was working on.

I encourage you to listen to Holy Spirit and when He places someone on your heart to pronounce a blessing - do so.  Spend time with Ephesians 2:6.  enough for now.

"Live on Purpose"


Yes, so much is going on. Yes, people have lost their mind.  Yes, it does not make sense.  Yes, there is something we can do. Yes, you have it in you.  But first - what is going on with you?  Where is your heart? your focus?  That will determine how you act, react.  Let's just start with you. 

Allow yourself to be whom you have already been created. I said it like that on purpose.  God has already shaped you, blessed you with gifts and talents, and given you a straight line to the heart of God.  That is how much you are loved.  When you recognize that, you can walk in that amid all types of craziness.  Carolyn Knight says so often, "Live on Purpose."  I agree as that purpose is yours and yours alone.  Walk into it.  Watch what God is doing in your life. enough for now.
