August 29, 2014 anoint



‘John preached: how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good and healing all who were under the tyranny of the Devil, because God was with Him.’ (‭Acts‬ ‭10‬:‭38‬)
Lord of Love, Lord of Splendor, Lord of all eternity,
anoint me today with this Holy Ghost that You gave Your Son.
Anoint with this power of the Holy Spirit, Lord, that You have kindly released and given into the threads of our veins to do impossible things.
Father, I pray today that Your people will have
an ear to hear,
a mind to perceive,
I pray that we will have a heart to believe.
And, I proclaim, God that the Spirit of who we are will become
and stirred,
and ignited,
and that we will engage this day,
yes, today,
truly empowered by Your presence and by Your Spirit, in the precious name of Jesus.

And, all His people said amen. Amen!

‘Answer me, Lord! Answer me so that this people will know that You, Yahweh, are God and that You have turned their hearts back.” Then Yahweh’s fire fell and consumed the burnt offering, the wood, the stones, and the dust, and it licked up the water that was in the trench.’ (‭1 Kings‬ ‭18‬:‭37-38‬ HCSB)

Mornin’, BoldHeart!
Prayer is the most powerful tool in the Universe. As life moves in and out of our hours, we often choose to believe we are mere observers. We choose to stand back as events unfold.
That is where calamity happens.
That choice to sit on our hands is the decision point of pain or victory. Christ didn’t sit on his hands, DearOne. And, it has never been the intention of our Maker for you, His masterpiece, to sit on yours either. You have been called to live out your unique calling,
in your unique place,
with your unique people,
serving with your unique skills,
speaking prayer from your lips over your unique walk.
How’s that walk going for you, anyway? (That’s one of my brother’s tipping point questions when I get whiny -“Ang, how’s your walk?!”)
There is POWER when you need to get bold and take the reigns – and that POWER releases when you begin speaking His promises.
Wake up.
Speak bold prayer.
Believe bolder.

August 26, 2014 dad


‘Then he stretched himself out over the boy three times. He cried out to the Lord and said, “My Lord God, please let this boy’s life return to him! ” So the Lord listened to Elijah’s voice, and the boy’s life returned to him, and he lived. Then Elijah took the boy, brought him down from the upper room into the house, and gave him to his mother. Elijah said, “Look, your son is alive.” Then the woman said to Elijah, “Now I know you are a man of God and the Lord’s word from your mouth is true.” (‭1 Kings‬ ‭17‬:‭21-24‬ HCSB)

Hi, Prayer-Warriors!
Our dad, Verle Coon, is in Oklahoma Heart Hospital where he is recovering from an emergency heart procedure following a chest-pain, nausea, classic heart-attack episode. The results revealed there are no closed veins or arteries. And, there is no new damage to his heart – so, it was not a heart attack and his bypasses are still open! Go figure!
There will be more tests and such to try to get his body functioning more efficiently.
This isn’t Dad’s first rodeo with heart attacks – by now he’s an experienced pro. He had all the signs and Mom got him to the Anadarko Emergency Room. He was then transported by our local EMT’s. Once again, both our hospital and emergency techs were professional, sensitive, and amazing. We are so thankful for them!
We asked for prayer for Dad all day and your response flooded him.
His heart issues were thwarted by Divine intervention. Pure and simple.
Our family is so blessed to have our extended families – our friends, co-workers, pastor, and church family.
Y’all, prayer works.
Do not take that lightly.
The God in you is the same God that worked in and through Elijah.
Prayer works.

Wake up.
Pray big, bold prayers.

August 21, 2014 2×4


But desire the greater gifts. And I will show you an even better way. (‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭12‬:‭31‬ HCSB)

Good mornin’, Sweets- there was a picture floating around on Facebook yesterday of a third world child giving a drink of water to a younger, malnourished soul. The caption was something like “next time you find yourself complaining, remember things could be worse.”
It wasn’t long til I heard myself complaining about something minuscule and stupid. And, the image of that child pouring life into another flashed like a furious bolt of lightening into my brain.
I hate that.
I was totally busted.
I bowed out of that conversation immediately, and said, “God, just keep on slapping me back into place with Truth. Please. Every time. Hit me with a two by four each time I start to succumb to the enemy’s trap of pettiness.”
Like you, God Most High has chosen some of His people to speak life into me at various peak and valley times. And, it always blows my mind because the affirmation and nourishment is so much more than the self-defeating thoughts and tiny dreams that I have of myself.
I’ve been scared-praying this verse for a while, half wanting His greater gifts to explode in me so I can pour more of Him out into another, yet half enjoying my comfort zone. He’s saying, “Ang, you desire to be taken there, and I desire to show you, but you’ve got to do the work on your end.”
The Almighty’s timing is so delicious.
Wake up.
Desire His greater gifts.
Pour into someone.

August 21, 2014 Mom Reinking


‘Then we, the living ones who remain [on the earth], shall simultaneously be caught up along with [the resurrected dead] in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and so always (through the eternity of the eternities) we shall be with the Lord! Therefore comfort and encourage one another with these words.’ (‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭4‬:‭17-18‬ AMP)

Mornin’ God’s Child,
My mother sent me this text last night. The ‘Mom’ to which she refers is her mom. We called her, my grandmother, ‘Mom Reinking’.
She was quiet, sharp – a cracker-jack entrepreneur, she knew the heavens and the placement of the moon, organized her days with the Farmer’s Almanac. She was perhaps one of the most deeply spiritual souls to ever move on the planet. She was not a heavy-talker, fewer words were golden with her, and her words, like the way she moved, eeked with resilient wisdom.
We are held away from each other, deprived at the moment of being held by her, except by sacred senses of loving and being loved:
the senses of familiar smell that linger even now,
of beholding her glimmer and her ways in her daughters and my cousins,
hearing the honey-timber of her voice as the sisters visit, and most especially receiving the electricity of her touch that is precious to the skin – that is, the gift of calmness and selfhood that she gave that carries on with the loving touch of her own.
When I think of being “simultaneously caught up” her arms are the first I see.
Wake up.
Leave a sweet scent that lingers.

‘Behold, I will bring it health and cure, and I will cure them, and will reveal unto them the abundance of peace and truth.’ (‭Jeremiah‬ ‭33‬:‭6‬ KJV)

I’ll be getting all up in someone’s cotton field today. It began with my own, so I figure if I need it — to clear out stubborn grudges, then someone else does to. You might get your toes stepped on. You’ve been warned. Here we go …

Walls are great at keeping unwanted people out, but they do a real fine job of locking you in as well, Sweets. Even if you decide to begin knocking them down, it can take years before enough of the rubble has been cleared out to allow a quick and easy passage. Regardless, any progress being made on the demolition is improvement.
You choose to live as a victim, or you choose to walk in victory.
You choose your attitude.
You choose your mindset.
You choose to be offended. Or, not.
You choose to be peaceful. Or, not.
You choose to let careless words get under your skin. Or, not.
You choose to be heightened by a compliment. Or, brush it off.
You choose to build walls, or build bridges.
It is time to quit praying for God to open a door so you can get out of your funk, and walk over….and open the door yourself, because The Peacemaker of your life stands ready to step in and download a jynormous boatload of blazing peace in the troubled places of your soul. He does. He desires to give you peace where your demons run amuck. You can trust Him on this
DearOne, it is now your move.
Make it.

August 18, 2014 birth


‘In this, love is perfected with us so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment, for we are as He is in this world.’ (‭1 John‬ ‭4‬:‭17‬ HCSB)

Mornin’ New Creation –
‘We are as He is.’
Let that echo in your brain a while. Let that bump around in your heart chambers. Let that park itself into your psyche.
You are as He is.
Have you ever seen an ape give birth to a peacock?
Or, an ostrich give birth to an elephant?
Have you ever seen a gazelle give birth to a dog?
Of course not!
Each gives birth to its own kind. When we are born again in Christ, we are as He is in this world … not as He is in our next life, not as he is when we reach eternity – read that verse again DearHeart: ‘for we are as He is in this world’.
Believer, He has birthed HIM in you. Do not take that lightly.
The fullness of the Maker of the Universe
– alive and active in you
– as you step out of your slumber
– as you eat your Captain Crunch
– as you greet your friends and co-workers
– as you check your agenda
– as you sit down at your desk
– as you listen to the news
– as you turn the radio dial
– as words fall from your tongue;
be so in touch with the POWER of His presence coursing through you, and beaming from you that His love keeps drawing every soul to Him, the Maker of the Universe.
We must be aware of who we are in Him – eternity is at stake.

Wake up.
Acknowledge the Holy Spirit working through YOU!

August 15, 2014 key-turning



“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17)

Good morning Angelheart,
If you were to totally forgive the ones who left a dark place in your soul, how would your life be different? ForgivenOne, the Source of your power is the Creator of emotions and choice. He has handed you the key to free each hidden, black pocket of hate,
free each black pocket of guilt,
free each black pocket of embarrassment,
free each black pocket of humiliation,
free each black pocket of anger,
free each black pocket of feeling judged,
free each pocket of resentment ….
not that each hurt will ever be forgotten, just that releasing them will allow you to hold them differently …. and, your light will surge a little brighter by agreeing to release each knot in the heart.
How would your life be different if you began with forgiving YOU completely? DearOne, you’re up against a great challenge to forgive others at all. When you have the toxic energy of self-hate or regret rooted in you – you’re not even available to forgive others. And, loving is out of the question.

Wake up.
Turn the key of forgiveness within.
See yourself through the eyes of your Creator.
Pure love.
Doused in His aura of unfiltered acceptance.
He loves you to the depths of the universe.
Live right there.

August 12, 2014 pete



‘Peter, however, got up and ran’ (‭Luke‬ ‭24‬:‭12‬ HCSB)

Hello SweetOne. Peter’s heart was broken.
Pete, sitting there, worn. Tormented.
There must have been great friction in the upper room as he was wallowing in sorrow for selling out His Savior – now, his Master had been crucified. Why, do you think, Peter would run when the ladies returned from the tomb? They said they had seen Jesus. Perhaps Peter ran to find a way out of the soul-howling nightmare he felt he had created. He heard a certain hope. Adrenaline coursed through the sobs in his inner hell-place, and moved him to hope.
Oh, to see Him,
to touch His brow,
to cradle His Saviors face in his guilty hands …
Satan authors the darkest kind of guilt in our lives. The kind that riddles our mind with “no way out”.
The Holy Spirit authors conviction that makes us RUN to our Savior.
He pursues us so that we will let go of the enemy’s lies that say, “you screwed up WAY TOO FAR this time”.
Yes, God Most High pursues us to run back into the arms of TOTAL MERCY,
back into the arms of TOTAL FORGIVENESS,
back into the arms of TOTAL GRACE,
back into the arms of TOTAL LOVE.
It’s your choice to believe and live the lie of satan. Your choice to live condemned by the enemy, or to run to limitless mercy when conviction comes.
Wake up.

August 8, 2014 transition


‘Then your light will appear like the dawn, and your recovery will come quickly. Your righteousness will go before you, and the Lord’s glory will be your rear guard.’ (‭Isaiah‬ ‭58‬:‭8‬ HCSB)

Good morning BeautifulOne!
What’s going on with your light, anyway? I’ve been working with mine, working to get the flame white hot. That’s my goal today. To burn white-hot IN the presence of my Creator. When we begin radical focus on such a mission, a shift rattles your cage, you know. At least, it does mine – because it takes work for me to not be drug down into to the pit by negative energy vampires that cross my path.
The more thankful and generous I get, Angelheart, the more I find myself seeking out the needs of others. Nothing closes your life faster than selfishness and entitlement. Nothing opens it as much as generosity. There is a subtle, yet POWERFUL transition beginning in you and me this morning. I’ve been praying for it to come and carry you to a profound new place. He is carrying me, too. And, the Rear Guard has promised He has our back as we go.
Wake up.
Expect transformation.
