October 28, 2014 guided



Hello GuidedOne,
His breath becomes ours when we feel too burdened to carry on. He warms us when too cold. He cools us when too hot –
in emotion,
in thought,
in desire,
in judgement,
in the creative realm of our soul.
He says, “My child, be kind, but never too tame.”
He stays. In thoughts, in dreams, He beholds us in all our facets and attitudes. He becomes our spiritual muscle, reshaping our clay hearts, with music, and nourishment, and attitude. His hand guides us as we cross, ever closer into Him.

‘The Lord opens the eyes of the blind. The Lord raises up those who are oppressed. The Lord loves the righteous. The Lord protects foreigners and helps the fatherless and the widow, but He frustrates the ways of the wicked.’ (‭Psalms‬ ‭146‬:‭8-9‬ HCSB)

October 27, 2014 freeze


Good morn, Sunshine!
Frozen places in immovable hearts are waiting to be axed open. The call to you and me, DearHeart, is to find only one with whom the exchange of thoughts can be turned toward Christ. At your “use me, Lord” plea, your Holy Spirit tuned in; a perfect doorway readies to bring His work through. A center-heart sanctuary radiates forth from the stone cold face of one begging to be found and freed up to flow into their birthright as a child of the One True God who loves us with wild abandon.
Wake up.
Find the frozen hearts.
Turn talk toward Christ.

‘I’m happy from the inside out, and from the outside in, I’m firmly formed. You canceled my ticket to hell— that’s not my destination!
Now you’ve got my feet on the life path, all radiant from the shining of your face. Ever since you took my hand, I’m on the right way.’ (‭Psalm‬ ‭16‬:‭9-11‬ MSG)

October 17, 2014 purple



Hi SweetSoul.
What is the loveliest thing you can share with your people today?
The news lately is so full of fear. Have you noticed? Our country, our communities, our homes are starving for leaders that will remember where we came from, learn from our past, and flex our muscles enough to change perspectives and lead in a different way. It is time to be an overcomer, Dearheart.
That means you and me, taking our pulse, sending the ambulance away, releasing the threads of the Holy Spirit in us, and choosing the thread of inspiration that reminds our home-team, “hey, we have purple-mountain majesties to defend.”
Wake up.
It’s important.

‘For I am persuaded that not even death or life, angels or rulers, things present or things to come, hostile powers, height or depth, or any other created thing will have the power to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord!’ (‭Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭38-39‬ HCSB)

October 13, 2014 discomfort



‘He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me.’ (Psalm‬ ‭18‬:‭19‬ NIV)

Morning, DearOne.
There are days that, as a ChosenOne, your Maker calls you to battle. He sends you in to deep waters because in order to be rescued from a shadow of darkness, very often, you must do the difficult. Trusting your Creator means that there are days He will ask you to trust Him to the point you’ll give up every earthly security and step out on pure faith. He has great plans for you. He does. Any sacrifice He asks of you during your hours now will be so worth the little bit of discomfort that will deliver back into His best for you.
He gives you the free will to trust Him or not.
Wake up.
Trust Him.

October 10, 2014 ‘STANGS



Hello, DearOne.
To me, this earthling life is all about experiences. The kind you make for yourself, and the kind you make for others. There’s nothing quite like going to the edge of your limits, knowing these are moments you’ll never forget as long as you live.
Totally alive.
Total “YES! YES! YES!”
The more you and I push ourselves to make those moments happen for another soul, the more it will add magical moments to their lives, and the more it will motivate them to make a difference in the lives of others.
Paying it forward.
And … most important, it teaches them to love.
Love points to Christ, every single time.

Wake up.
Go to your edge.

‘“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.’ (‭John‬ ‭13‬:‭34‬ NIV)

October 8, 2014 do it



‘So here’s what I think: The best thing you can do right now is to finish what you started last year and not let those good intentions grow stale. Your heart’s been in the right place all along. You’ve got what it takes to finish it up, so go to it.
Once the commitment is clear, you do what you can, not what you can’t. The heart regulates the hands. This isn’t so others can take it easy while you sweat it out. No, you’re shoulder to shoulder with them all the way’.
(2 Corinthians 10-12 Msg)

DearOne, if there is something you want, go after it – fight for it with all of your heart and don’t stop until you make it happen. Go ahead – be bold with the dream God Almighty has given you. It is not by accident that He has placed you here, now, for such a time as this. Do whatever it takes today, and everyday throughout your whole lifetime to live out the dreams He continues to plant.
I don’t care who you are … or what dreams He has given you -that’s a good word, right there.
Wake up.
Do whatever it takes.

October 7, 2014 seemingly senseless


It’s the simplest thing to do, SweetSoul.
It both anchors us and connects us to the wild and beautiful Force within us.
It keeps no rules.
No rights.
No wrongs.
Even when words won’t come, the wisdom and emotion from the deeper place within pulls to overcome a childhood that discounts our thoughts, a past that denies our feelings, or a history of just being ignored completely. It’s not the words that matter, DearOne, it is the power of stirring the heart to the Most High that matters.
It is prayer.
It’s prayer.
The connection makes the difference. It is the building block that changes everything and so it begins with calling on the name of God.
As you and speak to Him of a blessing … when we thank Him — it suspends our hurt long enough to begin to replace it with something else. It begins to make sense of seemingly senseless happenings in our life, and it transforms us into a certain beauty from which the Creator moves His greater purpose through each life.
You are so much more than you think you are. You are His vessel for drawing in closer to Him with every breath.
All day.
Every day.
We breathe His name. We draw in close. It begins with a prayer.

‘This is what I want you to do: Ask the Father for whatever is in keeping with the things I’ve revealed to you. Ask in my name, according to my will, and he’ll most certainly give it to you. Your joy will be a river overflowing its banks!’ (‭John‬ ‭16‬:‭23-24‬ MSG)

October 3, 2014 shift


Good Morning, Sunshine!
Way down deep within you and me is a place that connects the things that ‘are’ to the things that ‘could be’. I think of those as my God-cells. He plants those seeds for His GLORY to shine.
The beliefs you hold are true for you – whether you can clearly explain them or not. They don’t have to hold water or make a lick of sense to hold true. As humans … well, face it, we don’t always operate out of modes of logic or sound reasoning! We do, however, live and breathe, and dream, and imagine. And, the Truth that brings our next breath and plants the seed of eternity is the very foundation of faith.
We believe.
When we know it to be true then, even a small shift in one single point of faith-view can create a huge differences in our lives, relationships, yes, even in the whole wide world.
Knowing that the connection is already in place we have the power to collapse the space between the “what-if” into the possible “could be” and on to “it is” through the silent language of faith.
What are you believing for?
Have you started living in that belief yet?
The radical work was already done for you on the cross, BelovedOne. Therefore, the little life-affirming victories we choose along the way are totally doable. No matter how mountainous they appear — doable!
Wake up.
Dream it.
Believe it.
“already done,
already done,
already done”
Claim it. All day, everyday, claim it and live.

“Because of your little faith,” He told them. “For I assure you: If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will tell this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you. (‭Matthew‬ ‭17‬:‭20‬ HCSB)
Oooo – read it out of The Message – love it!!

“Because you’re not yet taking God seriously,” said Jesus. “The simple truth is that if you had a mere kernel of faith, a poppy seed, say, you would tell this mountain, ‘Move!’ and it would move. There is nothing you wouldn’t be able to tackle.” (‭Matthew‬ ‭17‬:‭20‬ MSG)

And, this from the book of Luke:
But the Master said, “You don’t need more faith. There is no ‘more’ or ‘less’ in faith.” (‭Luke‬ ‭17‬:‭6‬ MSG)

October 2, 2014 GAMEDAY



Hey, ShiningStar!
I love ‘rise to the occasion’ kind of days! They prove that what you were born for is REAL! Your Maker has assigned a host of beings in the heavenlies to celebrate your arrival to this moment. The choice on where your mind floods your focus matters today – so here is what you do:
-rock your world with discipline to stay in the moment,
-from breath to breath brace your calm … brace down into the earth, unmoved, like a boulder,
-your fueled passion kicks in one beat at a time. Let the Holy Spirit set your beat-to-beat fighting rhythm. Rise away from being swept up in the stupidity of surface emotions. Stay in the rhythm.
It’s days like this, moments full of color you can’t describe – full of lift and strength … that your passion kicks in with a low hum.
Yes, the fire you were born for is real.
BAM! He is your Power Surge. Every breakthrough victory leads to your bliss.
Buckle down.
Rise up.

‘But let him ask in faith without doubting. For the doubter is like the surging sea, driven and tossed by the wind.’ (‭James‬ ‭1‬:‭6‬ HCSB)

October 1, 2014 cruella


Well, Mornin’ SurrenderedOne –

When my 3sunz were little they loved the movie “101 Dalmatians”. I can still quote the scenes from the old VHS tape we saw over and over. . . I woke thinking about Cruella DeVille. Things that make you go ‘Hmmmm’, right? She was a driven beast. Now, in my mind everything/every thought happens for a reason – so . . . maybe the Cruella in me needs to back off a bit. How ‘bout you?
You sure you’re heading down the right track? You needing clarity?
Let go of the empty weigh-down thingys.
Trust your Shield.
Simply trust the journey He is providing.
Ease off the gas pedal. Let Him unfold His Spirit in you without trying
to control,
steer or
hamper it.
Wouldn’t your life be more blissful if you didn’t drive yourself so rigid?
Wouldn’t you be present to your Maker’s peace, if you simply allowed the Holy Spirit to take you, instead of you trying to take your hours and wrestle them into the shape you think they should be?
Surrender is not about giving up our dreams, our hopes, our desires. It’s not about sinking into apathy. It’s about letting go of our notions of how life ‘should be’ and letting the Spirit, guide us back to ourselves. Sometimes the greatest act of courage is the act of surrender.
Surrender. That’s the place your dreams bloom.
Hand it over.
It’s Yours, Jesus.
It’s all Yours.
Save the puppies.

‘I will hide in God,
Who is my rock and my refuge.
He is my shield
and my salvation,
My refuge and high tower.
Thank you, O my Savior,
For saving me from all my enemies.’
2 Samuel 22:3 (TLB)
