Peace in your storm Chosen One!
There is a sacred and profane approach to everything we choose to do. It is a matter of entering into the walk with a certain confidence Sweetheart. When that air of “this is my God-breathed place” is decided, we gather a certain nutrition to our blood flow. The nourishment comes from the God who is able, Jehovah Jireh, my Provider, and once He is embraced in your situation, it is the peaceful soul that will be able to use the past knowledge, present power, and future ideas all at once to turn the enemy away.
Be strong Beautiful Soul.
Your confidence waits for you.
‘Therefore, we may boldly say: The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?’ (Hebrews 13:6 HCSB)
Arise Faithful-heart. This new day, new dawn, new era is calling you. Father God is calling.
There is no such thing as being whole without being tested DearOne. When we weary-stagger from the blindsides dealt by life, we have a choice: we can let the bitterness consume us and eek out all around our space; or we can choose to surrender to love … because that Love is moving you to a better place. Father God is calling His prize-fighter to the ring.
Your dream is free, and it is no accident. The journey though, yes, the journey can be costly Sweetheart. There is a price to pay- but don’t give up. When your Creator carries a dream to your Spirit, you must surrender your actions and your attitude so the open windows become crystal clear. Fight for your surrender. Fight for it.
‘Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, and you will enjoy the choicest of foods. Pay attention and come to Me; listen, so that you will live.’ (Isaiah 55:2, 3 HCSB)
Good morning Beautiful One!
Lately (it happens around Graduation-time every year), I have been knee deep in thought about friendship. Life demands we collect them. New challenges and struggles and new soul places often throw in the unexpected: the hidden gift of another soul who appears just in time to simply walk alongside.
Father God sends them in all kinds of ways. Some only present themselves for our moment of need, and disappear as soon as the ink dries. Some stick around. They bless-down hard by traveling with long and loyal passion. They knit their days into yours and feel the heartbeat of your struggles, of the storms, and of the freedom of open road blue skies. We need both kinds.
The God of the Universe has planned and placed your people. As your eyes comb across the soul-gifts that lace into your day, let their presence soak you with thankfulness. Let Father God hear your praise for His work in your people!
‘Two are better than one because they have a good reward for their efforts. For if either falls, his companion can lift him up.’ (Ecclesiastes 4:9, 10 HCSB)
You have choices to begin your day sweetheart: where will you allow your spirit to fly today?
Will it be in the old, fallen down part?
Or, perhaps in the now-moment?
Or, will you dance today toward that part that is under construction?
Make your prayer-led choice Dearheart, where will your Father-God dance be active?
Your soul is not too interested in the mundane of daily matters, it seeks to be active in a very different way … the dance of living and breathing as Spirit-led. That God-given dance is different for each one. The dance of prayer, the dance of training, the dance of using your intellect, the dance of hearing, the dance of writing, the dance of caring, the dance of protecting, the dance of stepping toward opportunity. The dances go on and on Beloved. You have a decision to make.
Make it count.
‘Rejoice before the Lord your God in everything you do, (Deuteronomy 12:18 HCSB)
The birds are singing very loudly this morning SweetOne!
Exercising their gifts, no doubt!
They have recently returned from their warm winter nest – down south, someplace. What a rude awakening this crazy Oklahoma weather must be to them!
You have been appointed a gift or two, too. Father God designed you with purpose.
What is it?
What are your special talents?
What will you do today to develop your gift a bit more?
And, what will you do today to share your gift with one in need?
Your life can change drastically when you live in the purpose of your gifts.
Dearheart, you are an amazing and unique soul. Father God’s eyes gaze at you in wonder, like a new parent at a their newborn.
In tending to your gift, you keep the greatest blood-pact with your Creator, the God of the Universe, that you have ever signed; and we live in the gifts to tend to those He places within our reach.
Make it a FANTASTIC Friday AngelHeart!
‘According to the grace given to us, we have different gifts: If prophecy, use it according to the standard of one’s faith; if service, in service; if teaching, in teaching; if exhorting, in exhortation; giving, with generosity; leading, with diligence; showing mercy, with cheerfulness.’ (Romans 12:6-8 HCSB)
Good morning Beautiful One! (Brrrr-get the heavy coat; its not 90 anymore!)
Tell me about your workroom, your space where you meet heart to heart with Father God each day. I want to know DearOne, about the spot that hosts your soul-routine, your practice, your quiet, your very intentional place that is set-aside daily to touch your heart to the Almighty’s.
Of course, it can be anywhere. Mine happens to be the big green chair that I just can’t seem to toss. Oh- it needs to go! It is ripped. It has been moved upstairs – til I couldn’t stand it. It has been sown up, stitched down, restuffed, removed, hidden, covered over … etc. It is a sight.
Oh, but my Creator deals with me there. Where is your ancient, sacred, soul-workroom-place Sweetheart? The place you stop, and Holy Spirit takes your hand and you are examined … sometimes led, held, sometimes times dragged -kicking and screaming and digging in your heels?
It is the revealing place – where the examination happens of where in life we bristle, and defend, and learn to adjust so we can dig deeper and give away what we carry in endless, innate supply – FULLY LIT LOVE.
Where is your place?
‘Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God. May Your gracious Spirit lead me on level ground.’ (Psalms 143:10 HCSB)

Welcome this Wednesday Wild-Spirit Child!
Have you ever started down a new road when suddenly the doors of hell fly wide open? You find yourself blown backward from the unexpected explosion in your face. The road behind you is slammed shut by a solid iron door, and you must choose to deal and move, or die.
The brutality challenges every sweetness in you. It tries to narrow your focus to only the bitter; tries to craft a plate of hard shell around you, it tries to turn your next thought into pure hate.
SweetOne, you are not alone.
It is in this time that The Almighty releases a force of Spirit on someone to touch you; to comfort you in the dying time.
Perhaps it is only a brush.
Maybe a slight hug.
The simplest of kindness.
Just enough for you to take the strength you need to keep moving. To find your way upward – to find your way to life above ground again.
Listen Beloved, hear the word, feel the touch, see the goodness in your path today. Those are not mere happenstance. They are the Divine at work on your behalf as you grow ever-wise from your scars.
You must press on.
You must press on.
‘“You will certainly wear out both yourself and these people who are with you, because the task is too heavy for you. You can’t do it alone. Now listen to me; I will give you some advice, and God be with you. You be the one to represent the people before God and bring their cases to Him.’ (Exodus 18:18, 19 HCSB)
