‘give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit.’
(1 Thessalonians 5:18, 19 ESV)

Our world is hyper-pushing worldliness.
-expensive brands
-just a peek, press this link
-trash talking words
-winning at all costs
– …and lying about it
… all are ways to try to “fit in” and look good to others,
… all are ways to snuff out His Spirit in us.
Sweetheart, do not give in to that! The only measuring stick you and I need in this messed-up world is the one provided by Father God.
His mark is on your very soul.
Our longing for Him,
our desire to know Him,
to be changed by Him,
to follow His ways of acute insight,
His sheltering ways,
these are the evidence that He exists,
that He continues to live as huge, not invisible, but the actively felt God-Force in our life and in our world right now.
He is that tug, pulling something stubborn from the ground of us, helping us to let die what must die; helping us to let live what must live.
Be quenched in His Spirit!

About lewis3sunz

I am a blessed woman. Wife, daughter, mother of 3sunz, sister, author of 'Spirit Move Me: Memos to you that sway with the Holy Spirit', Jesus loving Oklahoma girl, I love exploring truth, early morning is my favorite time of day, teacher/trainer, lover of books and news and fascinated with butterflies, extreme right brained pondering creature; enjoy helping others find meaning, tap into their own inspiration and intuition to work more effectively, and overcome struggles and the rising and falling of life in the everyday grind and in small business/micro business worlds. Blessed with the crazy notion, the wild-eyed foolishness, and the madcap belief in the simple idea that I might help one to make a decision that makes a difference in the world . . . as stated by Ralph Waldo Emerson’s famous quote…“To know one life breathed easier because you lived, this is to have succeeded.” I get to use my small business background as a former owner of a Flower Shop and Hallmark Store and former co-owner of Disability Specialists, LLC, to help folks build dreams. I hold a M.Ed with emphasis on Adult Training and Education. I’d love to get my Doctorate in Educational Leadership . . . someday. My work centers on the belief that inside each of us lives a mesmerizing soul waiting to be revealed. Every day we can choose to trust the magic of our calling and take those unconventional moves to unlock an enchanted journey. I serve as Business and Industry Director and Business Development Services Coordinator at Canadian Valley Technology Center in Chickasha, Oklahoma.

  1. Amen! We need to keep our eyes, hearts and minds focused on Christ! He will show us the way to go, what things to do and what not to do. To do this we must spend time with Him in prayer and His Word daily. Blessings!
