ENCOURAGEMENT

Powerful Words

All power is in the Word....

"for verily I say unto you, if you have faith as the grain of a mustard seed, you shall say unto this mountain, remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove, and nothing shall be impossible unto you." Math. 17;20

...but shall believe that those things which he saysaid shall come to pass; he shall have whato ever he says... Mark,11;23

     Oh if only we would believe in the power of our mighty King who gives liberally to all who call upon His name !

Faith Breakthrough



      I can't tell you how many times the Lords peace has rescued me in difficult times, only that each and every time I saught His presence,  I received it...

     "Look up," says the quiet voice from within... look up and be still.  No matter how stressed I am nor how much pain I feel, if I look up to God, His peace comes... He has never failed me.

     His grace is ever present and available to me, in every moment, every heartbeat.

Faithfull Father

   
     For every thing there is a season... a time plant and a time to pluck what has been planted.  
    
     

     A time of wandering in the wilderness, and a time to come into the promised land.

     Many things happen during our times of wilderness, or drought.  We can curse this time and prolong the season, or we can allow God to teach us how to grow in any climate... the choice is ours.

     When our faith is being stretched and we become faint hearted in life due to the oftentimes great discomfort of the season we are in, it is precisely here that we recognize our need of our Father's love.

Truly Loving

 Beloved, do you love Me ?

      Feed My sheep... 

      Beloved , do you love Me ?

      Tend to My flock...

      Beloved, do you love Me ?

      Love My children as I have. Loved you...


      Deep within the heart and soul of each person is a tiny seed with a great and mighty destiny. In it lies the Divine spark of life that mirrors the awesome reflection of its Creator.  

     In its fullness of time it will become all that it was designed to.

Nurturing



   What do you think of when you think of nurturing?

      Scents that emit a soothing feeling that comforts the soul...  Like the smell of a toasty wood fire... Or the unmistakable smell of fresh bread baking in the oven...

     The feel of being wrapped in a soft fluffy blanket... even the gentle creak of the old wooden rocker, with its steady creak, thud, creak thud... 

      These are a few things that come to my mind when I seek to comfort myself.

Knock Knock


     

     What shall we say to our Father in heaven when we stand before Him of the stranger who came to our door in need ?  

     Know you not who knocks ? 
Is it not I, the Lord who comes as the orphan child, the widow, the poor, those who have been oppressed and  the sick ?

     Behold,  do you not know that I have placed seeds of greatness in all of My children ...   have you seen the inward parts of the heart which I did create.

Election





So we just held our elections in the USA...

and many people are delighted with the end result...

     and there almost equally as many vehemently opposed to it...

     There is a certain freedom in democracy that is a great blessing.

     Instead of a ruling hierarchy deciding your future for you, you have a voice, a chance to make yourself heard, an opportunity to change the direction of an entire nation.

      That is both an amazing blessing and an awesome responsibility.

Take Heart



                    







     There's a lot going on in our world right now... In our nations, our towns and cities... In our families, relationships, our marriages, with health concerns, financial tensions, losses and fears of loss loom large...

      No matter what the world takes from you, your job, home, financial security,  your marriage,  family, friends, reputation,  health or any other thing we value.

The Enemy Hits Hard

      Today I write to you my dear brothers and sisters to ask for your prayers for myself...

     Two days ago I was praying on the phone for a woman in great need... As I began to pray my feet went out from beneath my body as I fell down a flight of stairs injuring my back. As if I were pushed , yet no one was there ! 

     For those of you who have been with me on this journey you know that I live daily in great pain due to a spinal condition.   This incident/ trial has increased my pain exponentially 

Fractured Souls


Unknown Souls ...

There are untold millions of souls suffering right now... They are the walking wounded... They are the little ones hiding under the darkest of secrets... 

     These priceless children of Almighty God have suffered unimaginable agony, a torment so cruel , as to fragment and splinter the human 
soul and put to ruine the glory of human life as it was meant to be. 

     Who are these precious ones ?  They are the children who have survived the worst affliction that evil can thrust upon man.

Co- conspiritor


     What does mercy look like to you ?  

     Is it forgiving someone an offense... Forgiving of a debt owed to you...  Making a cheritable donation... Giving of your time and talents for someone less fortunate... Helping ease a burden that's too difficult for someone ... 

     Certainly all of these  can be considered wonderful acts of mercy.

     Although have you ever thought of mercy in smaller terms ?

     It can be as simple as a smile to a lonely stranger.

Choose Love


    Choose in what manner you will walk...

     In the way of love, which is peace to your soul... Or

     Rebellion, which is to curse your own soul...

     To walk in love is to follow the greatest example ever given to us, Yeshua, ( Jesus ).

     He taught us to forgive our persecutors if we wanted to be forgiven our own trespasses. 

     He told us to speak life into our all areas of our lives, to call upon the Comforter, the Holy Spirit of the Living Lord, to help us in all things.

Childlike Trust


    Even during extremely trying times it is still possible to find joy. 



      Actually the Son shines brightest in the darkest of times...

     See this handsome little man, he has a way of allowing the Light of God to shine right through him especially at the point when I'm about to fall apart ... and he has no problem whatsoever reminding me of all the faith I spent years equipping him with,  just when I need it the most ;) 

     Children have an inherent ability to trust .

Hidden Treasures

       
 I have discovered that there are innumerable rewards in being set apart for God... 

     I did not set out to challenge myself, but prayed for healing...

     I did not know that He intended to answer me with the deep healing of wounds I would have preferred to leave alone...

     (Pssst... Lord, I meant my back pain...) I would learn , in time, that its Always better to allow God to lead... He knows the best way... and its actually less painful .

I Bless Israel


Israel, oh Israel ! 
My firstborn...

Come My children, come !  Come to Me and I will give you rest.  See I have sent My servants to stand beside you in your day of trouble.  

    I am the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob...  tho the enemy is come against thee to test thee, I will not relent on My promise to protect you !  I am making a hedge around you to defend you .  Look at My hands that were pierced for your transgression, to give you a hope and an eternal inheiritance .

ENSLAVED NO LONGER

For all of Christendom ;

For the love of Almighty God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob ;


     For my Beloved Jesus Christ, only son of the Father, who for the love of His children, came down from heaven, suffered for our sins, died and was burried... was risen to life everlasting and enthroned in heaven seated at His Majesties right side.  For all of time, for each and every child upon the earth, to claim redemption and life eternal ;

      and in particular for all my faithful   brothers and sisters of the Catholic faith whom I love as my own soul .

Church Apathy

     If Jesus Christ walked into your church tomorrow what would you do...?

     Now, if a man or woman walked into your church looking disheveled, poor and sickly, what would you do...?

     Is there a difference...?  Should there be...?

     Do you look upon this person as a child of the most High God ? Do you "see" what God sees ?  or do you shy away thinking maybe they are living the life that they deserve...  

Chain Breaking Faith


    
Worship and Praise... your lead-in to chain breaking faith...




     Do you know what worship and praise in the face of lifes trials does ?  

     It literally takes the chains off that hold back your blessings !  

     Oh that My children would lift their eyes in faith...  

     Jesus said that we are children of God and as such we have the RIGHT the to call light out of darkness...  to call blessings out of His treasury in heaven.

Daily Hope



Be encouraged today to walk in faith and faint not ...


No matter how long and hard the road may be , it's only a season... Remember why we are here and the reason for the which we came... We are called, chosen, redeemed by grace and set apart for the great commission!  Steel your feet upon the path and run the race to completion for the glory of the Lord ! Nothing can destroy what God calls good!
Mercy and justice, peace and grace and strength to the harvester oh God !

You are not alone... Ever !

Homeless




     I have a new idea for the Homeless in Connecticut 

"The House of Compassion "
 For the unknown souls in need 

I have met some very wonderful people recently. They happen to be sleeping outside, in their cars or 3 to a bed in motels.

One beautiful lady is raising 3 lovely children not her own. She fed me and my son from what little they had.  

A disabled woman doing her best to provide for 2 hungry growing boys after loosing her job . And a young mother with the most beautiful baby suffering from birth defects struggling to find help alone.

ROCK Of FAITH


I am the Lords and the Lord is mine... Period. 

Of my Beloved I will not be ashamed for He will hear my prayer and answer it speedily...

    God is not one for the enemy to contend with, for victory is Always in the mighty hands of the Lord God !  

    Shall I shake in fear from an enemy that my Father has already defeated ? For what can he do to me that the God of all creation cannot undue and bless me with overflowing abundance besides ?

    I tell you today, do not fear when the storm comes, only stand on the "Rock" in unwavering faith.

911

                             Always Available 

There is only ONE that can be our Ever                                           Present help...


     What to do when you don't know what to do... and it just so happens to be the impossible! 

     In need of a miracle ? 

      Place your trust in the Lord your God and not in man, this is wisdom.

Heavenly Spouse


People tease me and call me a hermit or lone wolf... 

I don't know about you but I can't wait to get home to my Husband... 

     I know when I get home to my quiet corner of the world.  I have the great priviledge of His comforting presence awaiting me.  He is always reaching for me with tenderness. 

    If I hurt He holds me and covers me with the warmth of His love, touches my cheek catching my tears,  gently strokes my hair and eases the ache in my heart.

ITS SIMPLE


Have you ever loved someone...

Really loved someone... 



     I mean enough to put yourself out there for them... 

     Like when your baby is seriously ill and you just can't stand to see them suffering.  

     Its times like these when you would prefer to take their pain, their burden, there ache upon yourself than to let them go on in their agony a moment longer...


     That's just a taste of how God felt for us when He chose to take up the cross with our name on it.

Holy Flame



Ignite a holy flame within the depths of my soul...

Holy Spirit come to me, so  fill my being that I am more You than me... 



      Call me deeper into You oh Lord, consume my heart with the desire of Your own.  Let my soul soar to new heights of unimaginable glory...  Breathe into me all that is You...  I give to You my Beloved all that You can become within my frame.  

     Break open wide the shell that has encapsulated my soul with shame, fear, ignorance and all things preventing the brilliance that You created me to be.

Open this Vessel





    Word of God come unto me I pray thee...


     My soul aches for Your holy embrace, for nothing this world can offer me can satisfy my soul. 

    Fill me to over flowing with Your waters of life, let the rains fall to the earth and the faint of heart be strengthened by Your presence and flourish in the holy garden of their souls... 

      Let our hearts be set a flame with Your holy fire and let no thing that come upon them extinguish this blazing glory for Your holy names sake.

Surrendering All

   



  Messianic Principal :

     Surrender all ... Loss nothing good ... 
Gain God's awesome best of everything 

      
    Today Lord I give You all of me as never before...

      To do all that You have longed to do with me... in me... through me...  

     Give to me all that You have for me this day Father... all that my misguided heart has prevented me from receiving, due to lack of understanding.

Power & Authority




    Miracles happen every day...
This day will not be lacking...

     Oh faithless generation, how long shall I be with you ? Have I not told you all things are possible if only you would believe.? 

     What is it that you are desiring that you think the God of all creation cannot supply ?  Where is your faith level today...

     I do not say this to condemn you but to set you free from the spirit of fear and doubt.  It is not by your own power that all things are made possible but by Mine ( Jesus).

Significant Sparrow






    The magnitude and glory of our Lord is just not measurable... let us try and take stock...

     Shall we look at the sparrow, common and without majesty ?  

     She can fly high upon the clouds... gloriously taking to the sky and yet in a moment dart back to the earth were she is needed most. 

     She knows the importance of herself and her purpose, yet humbly accepts all without complaint.  
    
    Having no regard for the beauty and splendor of the more colorful birds, she is blissfully unaware of  what we term common.

Answer the Call


      For I know the plans I have for you, good plans... plans to prosper you. 

      Lord I empty myself out for Your holy names sake.  My heart, my soul, my strength,  my hands and my feet... let me see through Your eyes today, the divine child within , the soul behind the mask of pain, the heart in agony beating beneath the weight of its crushing burden...

      Take my hand today Lord and lead me to the one who needs Your breathe of life.

Dream






       Dream... Dream... Dream...

     God gives His children dreams, visions and hearts to believe...

     Not to lead us into delusions but to instill within us a hope... a hope that will defy logic... a hope that seems impossible... a hope that will require His help to achieve, that we may walk close with our God... a dream that will bring Him glory and birth in us a heartsong like we have never sung before... a life filled with love and joy, a life of abundance.

Be The Light


     Are you struggling with something difficult today ? 

   
    

     I have found that throughout my life whenever I am seriously overcome by my own needs or the lack of my own ability to solve them, one thing has continually helped me ...

     It is rather simple though at the time may seem an insurmountable task... 

    The specific difficulty I am currently weighed down by is not important...  what is imperative is that I think of someone other than myself, and the quicker the better.

A Light In The Dark



LIGHT

It only takes a little light to begin to disperse the darkness...


    

     If you have ever felt closed in by the dark... surrounded by negativity...  crushed by the shear heaviness of your burden ... or entirely enshrouded by the fear of it...

     Remember one thing, with the striking of one small match, the darkness is immediately dispersed ...  and you can begin to find your way again.  

     Hope... This is the match with which we can break through the darkness.

Confidence

 
We are all called to Gods purposes for our lives...
 
 
 
Give glory to God the Father as His only begotten Son has taught us. 
 
 
 
 
 
Offer prayers of thanksgiving and songs of praise.  For our God is good and just !
 
 
 
With His mighty right arm He upholds the righteous and defends the oppressed.
 
Mercy and justice are His who are willing to live by the commands of the Father.
 
He is a father to the fatherless a husband to the widow.

Let God Cook

Give God the time to season you to perfection...


Stay in peace... Trust in the providential hand of God... 
He's got you, and that problem your struggling to maneuver your way through  ...


 He IS working all things out for the best possible outcome on your behalf.  Give Him time to prepare you... for the extraordinary life He has designed ...

             ******************

Some dishes are best cooked in a crock pot.  They need time to simmer, many hours in fact, so all the ingredients and flavors can blend beautifully together accentuating each other, in order to be fully "ready" and most delicious.

Transformation

The transformation of a soul 
through hope...

The purpose of hope...

Hope is the starting place of new and wonderful developments, prior to their manifestation upon the earth.

For if I did not hope, I would not have have learned and begun those first shaky steps of faith...

 I would not have dreamed the dream that now comes to birth within my heart, within the world around me...

First in the heart, a small ember...
then in the mind, a dawn of creative processes... and the ember ignites into a small flame.

Identify the Enemy Within

***************************************************************************************************
IDENTIFY the ENEMY  WITHIN


Oh Lord defend and protect me !

To appropriately defend oneself we must first identify the enemy or enemies from within.

Emotions are critical components to deciphering the true identity of the one we desire to conquer.  They often lead the way to the truth though in and of themselves are merely a symptom.

There is one thing I need to stress; 
My own journey of discovery, healing and recovery of lost blessings did not even begin until I had come to the throne of God through His only Son Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit to whom I give all praise and glory.

Prayer = Love in Action

   



     TO   LOVE

Love is a verb.  It's an in action, an ongoing, in motion kind of word...

It is something we "do" in a variety of ways.  Love is tenderness in motion.  Through our softly spoken words, our prayers, the very intention of our hearts, we tenderly soothe the aches deep within the souls of each other.  It is this energy that passes between two people as they touch with mutual adoration.

Self Condemnation







Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your mind, all your soul and all your might...


When Christ shed His blood on the cross, it was for anyone who believes,  to be forgiven all his sins.


Not for a select few, nor for only certain trespasses ...  All who believe in the precious name of Jesus Christ are set free and gain entry to life eternal with God in heaven.  

That's it, so simple and yet so difficult for us to grasp. It is we who cannot forgive our offenders and ourselves our grievous sins.

Love Honor Serve







To love...
what does it mean to love ?

It can mean a variety of differing things to a great many.


For me, to love is an act of faith, something we do, not knowing weather it will be returned unto us, something that is given freely, abundantly, lavishly without reserve or demands of a return on our investment of time, energy of goods and or money.  

I describe it in this way because it is how the Lord Jesus and God The Father through the Holy Spirit have loved me.

Freed From Fear







There is only one kind of fear that actually helps us in life;
that built in run from danger kind of fear.

You know like when there is true danger heading right toward you, ie. an oncoming freight train or something that truly puts us in harms way.  Most often our fears are not of this variety, not by a long shot.  These are the fears that the deceiver would like very much that we keep intact.  Such as, fear of not being good enough or acceptable in certain groups or peoples, feelings of shame, failure, worthlessness, hopelessness, etc.

Tender Gardens




Each one of us is like a beautiful garden... one which God our Father works tirelessly in... 

Gently he tills the soil beneath us, carefully turning it over and removing harmful weeds that choke off the richness of His blessings he so graciously affords us.  At times pruning the dead branches that have gone awry and secretly drain our color in life.  Tenderly He dotes on us, whispering to our souls words of wisdom... come this way, reach a little higher, rest now... always, always watering our thirsty lives with His merciful love, the water of life.

Trusting the Process







Changes come, new things are born into our lives all the time...

Sometimes we are acutely aware of them and pained.

Other changes come silently and stealthily, and before we know it we are walking into new territory that we never even imagined ourselves in. Whatever the course of your life the message is always the same; Fear Not !  

We have an awesome God who knows our hearts better than we ourselves do. 
If we place our trust in Him instead of our own limited knowledge of life we both honor God and we are rewarded with blessings we never knew we wanted.

Blindfolded




As the storms of life rage, and they do... commit all things great and small unto the hands of your Beloved Savior...



For it is here that we are purified, the storms are stilled, grace flows like a waterfall from heaven, and we are blessed beyond anything we could even ask !  For He loves us so much more than we comprehend... His ways are higher than ours, hence the need to trust in His divine will on our behalf.  

But this trust thing... its the best thing for us... it is in the trusting that we find our greatest blessings.

Divine Love








Within each and every one of us lies a divine spark... 
that light of God which is life, which is love.




That glorious thread connecting us to God our Father and to each other... 



Learning to embrace this part of someone can be at times challenging. But learn this we must... for we are commanded to love one another as He first loved us...  

When we allow ourselves to see through Gods eyes what do we find... we find light and love if we look for it.

Thanksgiving





I pray that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.  May the Prince of Peace be with you this day as we give thanks to Him for our lives, our salvation, our freedom to worship... and so much more.

May your hearts be filled with His light and shine brightly to all those near and dear to you. 

For all those who are alone this day, or think you are... Your heavenly Father is nearer than you may think.  For you have friends in high places... may the angels of heaven keep you company this day and bring you peace and joy.

ACTS of FAITH







Therefore little children do all things to glorify your Father in heaven... from the great and wondrous to the smallest of tasks... for no deed done for the King of glory shall go unnoticed... our God rewards the acts of the faithful !

     Walk in faith, trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and receive your reward from heaven, here upon the earth and in life eternal. 

Acts of faith; 
establish the righteous ... change the course of your life .

Light in the Darkness









These are perilous times we are living in...

The natural world is birthing what had begun in the spirit realm, for this war is of good and evil... We are fighting a battle for souls, in our hearts, in our minds and in our bodies. But it began in the spirit, the ultimate war over the souls of the children of God. 

Do not be shaken nor let the enemy take hold of your heart,
for the Lord thy God has already defeated this enemy at the cross...

The Lord, in all His merciful ways has given you the strength to overcome.

PARIS










  

I pray for the Holy Spirit, the Comforter, to bring the peace that surpasses all understanding to His children of Paris today. May our Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ come to His precious people, hold them in His tender embrace and cover them with grace and mercy as they grieve the unspeakable anguish of loss...








Ingredients of a Miracle








For it is the Fathers good pleasure to bless His precious children !




I did not grow up knowing this. I was not taught that God wanted to bless me... 
But God came Himself to teach me the truth... so that I would know Him, His great love for me and how He longs to bless each one of His children. 

Did you know that He can turn pennies into gold ...  a mourning broken heart into a joy filled love for life... that He can fill empty darkness with a supernatural light.
