June 25, 2014 shiver


‘Peter sent them all out of the room. He knelt down, prayed, and turning toward the body said, “Tabitha, get up! ” She opened her eyes, saw Peter, and sat up. He gave her his hand and helped her stand up. Then he called the saints and widows and presented her alive.’ Acts 9:40-41

Good morning PrayerfulOne-
Call to our Creator:
Rise up, My Christ, The Holy One.
From the deep in me, shatter my rocks and shake my closed spaces.
Rise. Christ. Rise.
Shiver in His presence, DearOne.
Feel the flood of His holiness. Healing, comes from your call to the God who loves you – healing comes as He saturates into the spaces you open to Him.
He paints His presence from a place deep inside – His brush sweeping His radiance through in strokes of restoration.
We all need healing.
From sickness;
From illness;
From lying;
From cheating;
From hatefulness;
From destroying each other’s reputations;
From a binge or a purging or overeating;
From envy;
From pride;
From not asking for help;
From not taking our medicine…
We need healing.
Healing only comes,
Healing ONLY comes,
through your prayer.
Pray on.

June 24, 2014 spiral


‘Guard your heart above all else, for it is the source of life.’ (Proverbs 4:23 HCSB)

Hello DearHeart.
There is a starting point to peace. It is a certain dance and it begins at the very tip end of forgiveness.
The world says “what’s wrong with this person?” Instead of “look at all that is right in them”. From birth, we are trained in a judgmental mindset. It is hip to criticize and destroy with an unforgiving mindset. What if, instead of leaning our focus with a bent on one’s past, we choose to love them where they stand? What if we choose to unlearn placing fear on our people and choose to replace it with the love of the Holy Spirit?
The issue spirals down to this: ‘on what will I choose to focus today?’

June 23, 2014 wake


“Arise, for it is your task, and we are with you; be strong and do it.” (Ezra 10:4 ESV)
Good morning, StrongSoul-
More everyday, I am convinced that the world we wake up in is not the same as the world we went to sleep in. Have you noticed? In the blink of an eye things
From the mass inflow of information brought by technology, to mass change brought by chaos in new daily routines … it is enough to knock us on our gourd and send life spiraling into the unknown.
This, Dearheart, this is where you and I are called by our Creator to step in. Perhaps one of the greatest things we can do in the chaos of the hours is STAND UP and show the Light of our souls.
Allow yourself to be moved by the change from yesterday to today. Struggling souls catch light from those who walk fully lit- and have the courage to show it.
A path you will cross today needs your Light.
He will be a gift to them.
Shine on.

June 20, 2014 promises


PrayerWarriors, Join me … praying down hard on His promises this morning. There are seasons that slam us into
simple and total
surrender into the hands of The Healer.
These are difficult days for people you have brought close in my life. When no words come … the Word of The Most High explode newness:
God Almighty, Maker of my soul and inmost parts, loving God, I worship You in Your holy splendor. You are The Most High, to Whom all praise is due. I adore You.
I humbly come …
with thanksgiving,
honor and
and with a loving heart.
I love You, Lord.
I give to You my high praise.
With all that is within me, I bless Your Holy Name!
Father, I ask for the miracles of Your Healing touch. Wash your radiating spirit into my precious friends who lie in Your healing hospitals. We wait for their sleep to end. We wait for them to respond, to breathe on their own, for Your total restoration.
We need you, Lord.
We need to hear from You.
We trust You in all things.
And, we praise You to the highest for the healing work You are doing …
Father, God Most High, Creator of Life:
wash your Spirit of healing over, into, and through their cells. Cleanse each one to greater than new. Resolve every internal conflict. Like a soothing stream of water, cleanse every vein, open every blockage, radiate Your life into their every internal pathway.
-as in Psalm 103: 1-4: I remember all of Your benefits, Lord. You forgive all iniquities; You heal of all diseases. You redeem life from destruction, and You crown with loving kindness and tender mercies.
-as in Jeremiah 17: 14: I cried, “Heal me, Lord!” And You healed me! I cried “Save me, Lord!” And You saved me; for You are my praise!
– as in Psalm 30: 2: I cried out to You, O Lord, and You have saved and healed.
-You said in Jeremiah 30: 17 that You would restore health and heal wounds.
-in Jeremiah 33:6, You said that You would bring health and healing. You said You would heal and reveal the abundance of peace and truth!
-Your holy voice tells me in John 3:16 that You loved me so much, that you gave your only begotten Son so that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.
-from Isaiah 53:4-5, I know that He was wounded for my transgressions; He was bruised for my iniquities: the chastisement of my peace was upon Him; and by His stripes I am healed.
I thank you, Father, for your unconditional love!
-I know, from Psalm 107:2, I say boldly that I have been redeemed from the hand of the enemy. The enemy can no longer put his evil spirits on me.
-The enemy wants us to wallow in fear with all of the “what-ifs” But, You tell me in James 4: 7 “Submit yourselves therefore to God” and “Resist the devil and he will flee from you”, and this is what I choose to do.
-I lay my heart at your feet to pray for the release from the negative strongholds that the enemy has in my life and in the lives of my loved ones.
-In the name of Jesus, and through the blood of Jesus Christ, I say to the enemy:
“I command all evil spirits in my life and in the lives of my loved ones that are causing discomfort and diseases in our bodies,
cloudiness and confusion in our minds,
and any evil force that is blocking or hindering the free flow of the GLORY of God in our lives, let it be removed and be cast into the sea, according to the instructions from Jesus in Matthew 21:21!
Let it be removed.
-Jesus said to us in Matthew 16:19 that He would give us the keys of the kingdom of Heaven. He told us that whatever we bind on earth would be bound in heaven, and whatever we loose on earth would be loosed in heaven.
So, right now, I bind all the power of the demonic forces in my life and in the lives of all of my loved ones. I loose into our lives the mighty Power of the Living God, our El Shaddai, the All-Sufficient and Almighty One.
By my strong faith, Heavenly Father I receive Your Almighty Power flowing in my life and in the lives of my loved ones, powerfully driving away all demonic spirits! It is finished! It is done! In Your name, the enemy flees.
I will glorify You, God, my Heavenly Father, Jehovah-Rapha, my Lord who heals. I will glorify You with my whole and mind and body.
Do Your thing, Lord.
We live on Your promises.
Just, do Your will, and we will follow.
Amen. Follow me on Twitter @lewis3sunz

June 19, 2014 risk



Morning, SweetSoul.
(Re-read that with an exclamation point. . . Morning! SweetSoul!!)

Look around. All creation is ablaze in the glory of The Almighty!
oh. Daybreak! oh.
Splendor. Even the scent of the dawn whispers His name.
Show me Your GLORY, Father!
Listen to what the words can’t say, but I’ll try to find words for.

Jesus saw and knew that the entire creation was alive with His presence. His presence is open to anyone who dared risk every form of comfort. . .
and social status. . .
and position to attain.
The risk of “Yes, Lord” is what enacts His presence.
His vision is clear: the entire task of each earthling . . .
yes, your task and my task, DearHeart,
lies in living out a life that allows
His FORCE, and
to FLOW into our ordinary reality.
And, when we begin to see our small “yes, Lord” as a hidden purpose of God Most High, He releases the most EXTRAORDINARY powers and possibilities, which Jesus understood MUST be released if His Divine plan for the world’s eternity is to unfold in its full splendor.
Ah, PrayerWarrior, release your “yes” to your Creator. Boldly dare yourself to lay your risk out on His alter.
Here I am.
It’s You and me, Lord.
Fill me.
Take me deeper.
I am Yours.
‘Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, we must also follow the Spirit.’ (Galatians 5:24, 25 HCSB)

June 18, 2014 delivery


‘I am certain that I will see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and courageous. Wait for the Lord.’ (Psalms 27:13, 14 HCSB)

CourageousOne, press on.
Gut punched. Tragedies come and from the outside looking in, all we want to do is erase the torture our precious friends are forced to wade through. Erasing it would take their journey from them; that’s not my place or yours. When the unexpected plummets into our daily routine it often stumbles the heart.
“Wait! God! Wait! I only want to touch her face, to wrap my arms around her, to lift her as she has lifted me!”
But, that’s not always appropriate or possible. And, then, as His answer comes to our screams of “what do we do now?”, God sends a sound of a familiar and smooth, calm voice, “it’s alright, Angie. Everything will be alright.” Father God answered the question as soon as it was asked. Echoing from deep within: there is nothing to do, Child, except stay put, and wait for His clarity.
This morning, a bittersweet sadness hovers at the “why’s” of this life … the questions that have no answers … and, I ask our Maker to give a message of love from my heart to hers, and I trust Him to deliver. Our prayers always get answered. He delivers.
Wait for Him.

June 17, 2014 step



Hello AssignedOne,
It’s true that sometimes, before we even know it, life enters a new season. We wake up to know we have set out on an “OK, Lord, whatever it takes” mission. Suffering, striving, enduring, the old life and the old ways call back. “Ah, stay here. You were comfortable here.”
Will you stay?
The habits that consumed your minutes are calling for you to come back and simply drift along. If you stay there, no matter what ecstasy rose out if that time … if you stay … you choose to live dull; wandering your way down in flat, half-breathing, acid-scarred stagnation. There is no lingering thrill.
The Holy Spirit calls. Disheveled, and animal-like we choose: striving, enduring, a wild-wanderer to a deeper plane.
DearOne you must choose to leave one life season for another, one stage for the next, with unfamiliar ground under your sandals, simply because you must. There are no handles to hold, only faith upon which you place a right foot, then left, right, left … tenderly at first. Your Powerful Creator supplies the road and the wind under each trusting step.
And, so we take a shower, and begin to move.

‘but those who trust in the Lord will renew their strength; they will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary; they will walk and not faint.’ (Isaiah 40:31 HCSB). Follow me on Twitter @lewis3sunz

June 16, 2014 gray tape


‘The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple; the precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes; the fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the rules of the Lord are true, and righteous altogether.’ (Psalm 19:7-9 ESV)

Morning SweetSoul.
There are parts of the bible that are such a mystery. Much of it seems a stretch or sketchy to me. But, what I’ve discovered is that the prickly parts of the bible that I don’t understand are not the ones that give me trouble. Frankly, its the parts that I DO understand with crystal clarity – the parts that I know about The Most High’s desires of my less than stellar thoughts and behavior … Those are the ones that cause me the most angst.
The Holy book is God’s tool. At some point I got over the notion that it was untouchable – I mark mine up, make notes in the margins, throw it in the car seat and take it with me, bend pages every which way. And then, I stack it with others and get a new one to start the process all over again.
If we all used God’s Word for something more than just praising flowers or keeping clippings of obituaries, who knows how much better off we might end up!
By example, my dad taught me that bibles are to be worn out. He had one held together with duct tape. That’s my goal.
Wake up.
Get your bible.
Wear it out.

June 11, 2014 haters


‘winking his eyes, signaling with his feet, and gesturing with his fingers. He always plots evil with perversity in his heart — he stirs up trouble. Therefore calamity will strike him suddenly; he will be shattered instantly — beyond recovery.’ (Proverbs 6:13-15 HCSB)

Mornin’ Fellow Follower,
I am a dreamer. Are you? God wants good things for you. He does. People … well, maybe not all are so gung-ho for your success.
So, sit on the ‘God wants good things for you’ a moment. Massage that thought in for a while. Write it on your palm as today’s reminder.
Have you ever noticed that one person can mess up your whole day? Sweetheart, the enemy will send people to you to pollute the promises of your Creator. Right?
How do you handle people problems? How you handle people problems will determine your destiny. Because dreams are always tested.
Pressure has a purpose. If I can talk you out of your dreams, or someone else can talk you down from it … then, you wouldn’t have followed your dream anyway. Truthbomb! It’ll be tested by satan; it’ll be tested by your enemies; but, your dreams will also be tested by God. Why? Because, God can take you to His spiritual top, but your character will decide if you will stay there or not. Character is who you are when nobody else is around. It is also what protects you from your own success. Some opposition is sent to destroy you, some haters are sent to refine you and define you. You have to know the difference. That is what is known as wisdom. Love the haters too. They push you to plant yourself in the power of The Almighty’s promises.

June 13, 2014 imperfect


‘But when the Complete arrives, our incompletes will be canceled.’ (1 Corinthians 13:10 MSG)

Mornin’ BeautifulOne-
Don’t know about you, but I have this great gift of imperfection. It stays with me constantly. It frustrates the dog out of me, too.
After I eat, there is almost as much food in my lap as there is in my belly. Imperfection.
When I paint my toenails, the paint ends up all over my toes. Imperfection.
When doing laundry, half the socks go missing. We get socks out of our household community sock basket; I just don’t ever seem to get them into drawers. Growing up, we never had a sock basket at my mother’s house. Imperfection.
I dig my heels in at weird places. I’m a fantastic worker, will work like a focused madman for months on a project, right up to the finishing touches, and then put off finishing the last 10 minutes that it would take to complete it for months on end. Imperfection.
Yall, I could go on and on. I’m not even going to start on my deep psychotic issues. Someplace along the way, I figured out that we all have them. We are all crazy. It’s part of the human experience.
It takes lots of practice to keep me from sliding into the depths of depression or psycho-flippin’-tyrant-mode over all my quirks. But, my sanity practice begins every day when I collect my body, soul, and spirit, with my Maker….
Come, My Lord.
Word of God, speak to me.
Center me in You.
Possess my entire being.
Give me the courage,
and the discipline,
and the hunger,
and the longing to enter into the Divine – then let me share this astounding experience. Press me, Lord, to share this experience that changes everything.
Wake up.
Collect yourself into His Spirit.
