Thank you for all your shares and likes, and reading and following but I am on the move and clear instruction has come that I will be moving from WordPress. I will come back and keep you updated when the the new site will be produced. Thanj you again and I love you all so very dearly.
This is a personal piece from my walk with the Lord…
I was seeing myself at a point and even though, I felt weak at times more mentally and spiritually it also affected my physical person. I have some amazing people and God places people in your life that help you, but you have to be willing to submit to the wisdom. I’m not talking about earthly wisdom but true God fearing wisdom, and internalize it and meditate on it and ask God to reveal to you what you need. I love them for what time they take to pour into me. I’m grateful for people that listen to God at a point I may seem to be deaf trying to kill my flesh too.
Focusing on the Love of God, is a place I had soon forgot, not because I wanted to but I was busy with the works and not the heart of God. Getting busy because I’m a go-getter, I like getting things done and as soon as possible. I’ll run myself into the ground to get things done, even before I came to live in my purpose, at my job I work work work, because I can have OCD tendencies. Like I really like things done in order and a way which I have to tone down a whole lot because I personally don’t like being controlling. I just like it to look presentable very nice. I get drained when I go into this mode I have lost focus on the purpose. I broke down so very much in the past week because I lost the purpose even though I had a plan, plan without purpose is a lost cause. So I said Lord take it all away and I WILL lay at your feet before I USE any gift you have given me. They are all Yours just take them, I want no parts, I just want You. Then I received my strength to rise, where your focus is, is also where you draw your strength to live from. I am more determined to always be under the shadow of His wings and overwhelmed by His love then to obtain anything from my own life or this world.I would rather not speak if it means to be in agreement with the flesh or this world and I only bow to the King of kings and Lord of lords. My strength.
It’s August and I have yet to figure out why every year for the last few years around April to September why God always puts on my heart marriage. I have hints but I think I just started to accept it this year that He is preparing me for the position called Wife. Before I can get there I must go through training, training that the world does not offer. I didn’t come to go deep into the training but God gave me a word to share and that I should blog it. So the next two or three paragraphs will be what he gave to me to share with the dear ladies following me, Kingdom women!
“Marriages are my idea, them to stop putting time limits on my timing, my purpose, my plan. You say you have to have this and do that, but what I want is for you to listen and obey, heed to my word and my will. That is how you prepare for a mate, the world will have you missing out, I laugh at the plans of man; my way is perfect, my timing is perfect, my peace is perfect. stop fretting and being so busy Martha, you can’t hear what I am saying. You see why some of your plans have not become as they should because you need a covering, someone to envision with a husband, you cannot be with me alone, I never designed you for that. Two is better than one, stop whining over cold sheets, what your family is saying, your friends are saying. Because who I bring into your life, most of them will think you don’t deserve him, you don’t worry about their words but you hear and follow my instructions.
My beloved daughters, my Queens, more precious than rubies, who laugh at tomorrow, who have no fear, but fears the Lord, and she shall be praised.”
Look God got you better than you got yourself, continue in His paths and before you know it the man that is your husband will be before you! God bless!
The greatest tragedy is to die without fulfilling our God given purpose on earth. -Miriam Suggs
I do not bend much when things happen, I pray but I have and am still learning to not act out so much out of emotion but to ask God to show me what’s really going on.
I shared this part on my facebook page of God’s answers to my question:
My children are easily distracted from my pastors, teachers, and my congregation. It’s a lot of Peter’s with no power, ready to cut off ears and shed blood but they do not know what spirit they are of. While you are being distracted by color, Satan is taking advantage of your blindside. If you are blinded he can rob you of everything I’m trying to pour out to you. You are to be like a child, easily teachable but not childish throwing a temper tantrum at every fight. I have told you the end of days will be chaotic and you refuse to listen.
When He told me that, I was like yes Lord that’s it! *happy dance*
Division is the strategy of the enemy, satan divided Adam and Eve from God. He divided Cain and Abel. So since the spirit of prejudice is high here in the states because we love to look and live in the past that’s the door that is wide open for satan to use against us.
My personal opinion does not matter when God has already spoken-Pastor S.V. Johnson
1 Thessalonians 5:3-6 For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman.And they shall not escape. But you brethern, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a theif. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober.
Matther 14: 28-29
Peter is walking on water and being distracted begins to sink. When we take our focus off Jesus, we respond to things the wrong way. I was shocked to see and still seeing so many ‘Christians’ put this as a racial issue. There is only the human race and until we recognize we are not each other’s enemy more tragic things will happen.
Eph 6:12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against pricipalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of the wicked in the heavenly places.
When we sit at the Father’s feet and get orders from the throne, we better learn how to carry them out. Why? Because that’s how you get change, that’s how you change the world is walking in your purpose and leading people to Christ Jesus. 1 John 5:4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world-our faith.
So when we line up with God’s vision, understand everybody may not accept the invitation of salvation, stay focused on Jesus and don’t be distracted, then our faith we are walking in will win every victory.
I of course am up because I took a nap earlier today and yeah that was not on purpose. I’m cleaning and as I clean I think about everything. The last few months God has been dealing with me tough, training me, teaching me. With teaching I had to realize why I have two ears and one mouth.
I like alone time, I love and probably try to indulge in. I’m a mom, so if that means locking myself up in the bathroom just to get a little peace, I’ll do it. Lol.
With this alone time, as long as I can remember I’ve read countless words through many pages of many books. I’m a bookworm. As I have come to understand knowing God, my books pretain more useful knowledge. God’s Word along with being on fire with the Holy Spirit has started a flame a hunger and thirst for Him. An attentive ear has been turned to hear what the Holy Spirit is saying. Before I came to my church now I was not well hearsed on the things of the spirit, I knew angels and demons and about the works of the Holy Spirit but not in detail that I know now. I have recieved somewhat of a plathora of revelation from the Holy Spirit including knowing God’s voice.
Jesus is talking about John the baptist and in verse Matt 11:14 says ‘and if you are willing to recieve it, he who has ears to hear, let him hear!’ If you are willing to hear the truth of God by the Holy Spirit you will hear. Jesus in John 10:27, says ‘ My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.’
We can hear God clearly when we walk in obedience to His Word and Will. We belong to Him, He knows us by our fruit.
How do you know if you are hearing from God?
The voice never contradicts the Word of God. God is not telling you that someone else’s husband/wife is your husband/wife. He will not lead you astray, nor to commit a sin of any kind. That the flesh and or Satan.
The voice of God is gentle and stern, it is not harsh. I have heard my name called gently but sternly and it was to get my attention, to protect me.
His ways and will are higher than ours and He knows the plans He has for us. The more we yeild to the Word. Most of the times before I start my personal bible study or even get to church. I plead the blood over my mind, ears, my mouth and that I be enlightened by the Holy Spirit to God’s truth and I ask God what do I need to learn for that moment. I sit still, I sort out or get on the same frequency by praise and worship and focusing on Him. Meditating on His Goodness.
When yeilding becomes apart of that personal time with God and we shut up and listen. Then you and I can hear His voice in surety. He will direct and correct your path, we just have to be willing to get into that quiet time and be quiet. Lol. This has been most fulfilling in my relationship with Him, that’s a part of the intimacy. Listening.
For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Mark 8:36
This is a topic that bothers me the most, not because of prosperity being taught but because of those who bash those who do teach prosperity.
I do not have a problem with preachers who teach it because I myself believe that prosperity is necessary, if you are not prospering you are dying; broke, mental or sick.
No one listens to a poor man. (Eccle 9:16)
Why do our children listen to rappers and worldly people more than the preacher and the teacher?
Because they see the flashy things and people getting whatever, eating whatever, riding in whatever, living and traveling wherever they want.
Then ‘church folks’ say something if a Pastor is teaching the word, preaching the word, carrying out missions, feeding and educating people, spreading the gospel to the four corners of the earth and say ‘that’s the devil.’ Satan is looking like ‘why would I increase someone who is teaching the people to defeat me.’ Come on church folk, wake up, now you are being decieved of what the riches are about.
Riches are to expand the kingdom. Contrary to believe Jesus was not broke in no sense of the word, He was so wealthy that ‘He knew and let a theif stay over the treasury’. You can be so caught up on spreading the truth of God and into the assignment on your life that the money is flowing and circulating to carry out what is suppose to, when money comes up missing you don’t notice.
But this religious mindset says the church is suppose to be poor, but how? Excuse me but my eloquency gets dropped when I’m getting to the real deal holy field.
How are God’s children going to carry out the gospel, half of the church not walking in enough faith to break five loaves of bread and some fish patties to feed 5,000 men not including women and children. We (as in religious people) are having a hard time having enough faith to pay our own bills, put food on the table, and pay off a building to have church in.
I can only find one thing wrong with the bashers, you are sleeping on God. Plain and simple, Adam and Eve were prosperous wanting for nothing, Abraham just wanted a child with his wife and became prosperous in that area as well. Children of Israel left Egypt wealthy ‘they made a golden calf’; ‘perverse’.
So let me ask you this, are you making your blessings into a golden calf?? Are your children, husband, your own life, your job, your friends, even you ministry come before God, is that your golden calf?
Maybe we have a problem with someone teaching on money because we have mismanaged ours so much, we are haters and haven’t sat at God’s feet for us to hear how to make those inventions, where to go to make a deal, who to see because 1. we think we can do it on our own, when God did not intend for us to live without Him (prideful). Pride comes before the fall.
Riches are to be used to expand the kingdom, not hoard nor used to look down on others as if you are better.
1 Tim 6:9 those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare
Vs10 says for the LOVE of money is a root of ALL KINDS of evil.
Let’s list some:
People do all that and some more for money! If we put money in it’s proper place we will clear all those deceitful and perverse and evil things under our foot and our hearts and minds won’t focus on the money. People do all those things because they feel as if they lack something.
Matt 6:33 seek first the kingdom, “God and His way of doing things” and everything for your destiny and purpose on this earth will come your way.
God gives the wisdom to increase. Satan does not want the saints to increase, why would he, he wants you to stay stuck where you are, broke, disgusted and busted then you can never go out and reach the souls that need to be brought in.
Don’t be decieved Saints! Increase is of God.
1 John 1:2 Beloved I pray that you may prosper in ALL things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.
I asked God all my life why was I here on this earth, what purpose did I serve, I have wanted to commit suicide, drink myself to death and have definitely looked in all the wrong places for fulfillment. God started to reveal who I was before I actually knew that He was. I believe sometimes God is putting the answers in our face we just aren’t mature enough to actually read them.
In the last eight years it had become more clear even as I went through things and didn’t completely understand it all.
Some things in the last three years I probably ignored it and went about like Jonah running from it. When God reveals your prayers they come out bigger than you think but over time.
I have always loved writing but writing for the Kingdom, I had no intentions. I like singing mainly in the shower but I had no desire to join the choir at church but I did. I had no desire to go to school for ministry but guess what my first class was this week.
I learned to set aside my plans, my own purpose, my desires and my thoughts to my life and picked up all of God’s. When you pray about your purpose here on this earth. It takes time and it may even sway you from your own ways and thoughts. I say give in for God, because He gave all for you.
My son, if you receive my words, And treasure my commands within you, So that you incline your ear to wisdom, And apply your heart to understanding; Yes, if you cry out for discernment, And lift up your voice for understanding, If you seek her as silver, And search for her as for hidden treasures; Then you will understand the fear of the Lord , And find the knowledge of God. For the Lord gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding;
Proverbs 2:1-6 NKJV
“I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me. “Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world. O righteous Father! The world has not known You, but I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me. And I have declared to them Your name, and will declare it, that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.”
John 17:20-26 NKJV
For a few weeks now I have not been able to write this and it has been hard to put my thoughts in order that I understand it.
Then God revealed something to me as our minister of music spoke to us last Sunday . It was so profound and it clicked with me so well, He said, ‘Release the sound that God has given you, that only you can make.’ Then I got more revelation as God started to bring back to memory some science lessons I had in grade school and a messages I watched by Jesse Duplantis.
Sound are vibrations that travel through the air or another medium and can be heard when they reach a person’s or animal’s ear. (Google definition)
The sound of Jesus is His teachings to us. Every time we repeat what Jesus said, we release His sound! It rings into eternity. Proverbs it says ,the power of Life and death is in the tongue, choose life.
The sound Jesus spoke in the above passage has been weighty on my heart, I read it and it resonates. Jesus prayed for you and me, that we would believe because of the disciples before us. I had to ask myself am I letting that sound ring clearly, is it hitting my life so it can travel from me to others. People say actions speak louder than words, that’s true because in James, it says do not be hearers only but doers also. Your actions make a tremendous sound throughout the earth, do not only pray for those after you make a sound for them. It should declare Jesus is the ruler and lover of your life and He reigns forever more and He is good all the time! Make a sound!
As a musician and singer I understand that my sound is different than any one no matter if I play the same song, it’ll ring with individuality.
Matthew 9:8 Now when the multitudes saw it, they marveled (reverence) and glorified God who had given such power to men.
Everything Jesus did brought Glory to God! My assignment here is to have faith, trust and obey so that I can glorify my Father while I take this visitation on this Earth. #Assignment #Purpose #SpiritWork in the physical world. #KingdomBusiness
