Thirsty Yet?

I need more of what God has for me. I watch for it. I long for it. Hmmm. I watch and I wait. If I watch what I see in the physical I will be so disrupted. But if I hold on to what I hear from God, I have peace. I must stay focused on God. "As the deer pants for the streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God" (Ps. 42:1,2 NIV).  

Get thirsty for God, not the temporal things. Watch what God is doing in your life. Listen and follow. enough for now.

Lies/ Truth

More and more clients are recognizing the lies that have bound. Kept them bound although they knew they were lies - in their head. Oh but when they recognized in their heart they were lies - that is when healing could start.

There is so much more in life for you. When you recognize that lie, get still, ask God what is the truth? When you hear the truth you can stand stronger. Yes, you may have read the truth yes you may have spoken the truth, but when you hear truth from God- you can stand. If you are not sure what you hear, line it up with scripture and God's promises for you.

How have you lived your life, structuring it around the lies you have believed? Or the lies you were made to believe? Are you ready to live free from them? It does not matter the lie, what matters is the truth. Send me a note. enough for now.

Keep Going

Don't you love the season of challenge? When what you attempt to do appears so difficult? Yeah, that is part of the challenge. Just know that you are not alone. Keep going. enough for now

Let it Go -This Time

My, my, "Oh what needless pains we bear- all because we do not carry everything to God in prayer." That line from a most loved song rings so true. You need to share with someone. You need to know that there is someone in your corner. You need to know that sharing helps release the toxins of anxiety, worry, fret, anger. . . you know. Yes, you may have someone you can vent to, but that only dumps your stuff on them. You may feel better but they feel dumped on. I offer that giving all that stress to God will relieve you and replace all the stuff with peace.

Yes, your friends can pray with you, but sometimes you tell the same thing to anybody and everybody that will listen. That is no good as you are rehearsing the stuff and not letting it go. Resolve this season to learn to let it go, to give it to God and watch what happens. I'll walk with you. Ready?

Just Walking It Out

This season affords us the community of walking together, either giving up something or taking on something that brings us closer in our spiritual walk. I offer that it should only enhance what we should be doing anyway. This is a journey and we get on with it by walking it out. we do so shedding things that bind us and realizing clarity in hearing clearly. We are not alone, Holy Spirit, as our paraclete walks alongside. Again this season allows us to share with one another what we are doing. Why can't we do that all the time? If we can't find anything to say, just say, "Just walking it out." That is what we are doing. enough for now.

The Way Made

When? When does it all settle down? When will I get paid? When will I find love? When . . . When will the way be made? We have all have so many "when" questions. I can can only offer insight to the last one- when will the way be made. That is already done. But there is a "when" you must answer- When do you walk in it?

You see, we waste so much precious time searching for what we think we want, what we think we need, what we think we should do. Yet, when our way has already been made- we just need to listen and follow. When we follow, we bypass so much undue stress. Stress is us trying to make it fit, make it work, see it through. But the way has already been made for us, each our own way. Walking in that way insures less stress, clarity of thought, and -wait on it . . . PEACE. Come one, don't you need peace? I do.

Use this Lenten season to shift your focus- to listen, watch, and follow. The way has already been made. enough for now.

Uniquely Made

Don't you find it interesting how you can see clearly something and wonder why can't everyone see the same thing? When I was young that bothered me. I could not understand why people could not see what I saw. My sister had to tell me - because it was my gift, it was mine to see. It was not because I was so special, but it was mine to see- to understand.

There have been times that has come back to me lately- with a new understanding. The same way they could not see what I saw, there are things I cannot understand that are clear to others. And again, they are not more special. It is their gift.

It really is cool how God has given us what we have that fits right into the puzzle of life. It is our contribution back to the kingdom. And we cannot work another's gift. We cannot look down on another but look eye to eye, heart to heart, understanding that we are all in this together.

I'm hearing how special you are in the kingdom- warts and all. Just like me. Take time today and marvel at how you are uniquely created. enough for now.
