   “Then the Lord said to Cain, “Why are you furious? And why do you look despondent? If you do what is right, won’t you be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at the door. Its desire is for you, but you must rule over it.” ‭‭Genesis‬ ‭4:6-7‬ ‭

Hello, AccountableOne,

Love conquers all, right? Mmm. Yes, when it is given AND received. You are responsible for the giving. But, you have no control over the receiver’s response. That’s between them and their Creator. 

You can approach another in love for an entire lifetime, and if they are not open to it, if they choose to deflect it, love does not win. 

Free will. Choices. Always.

God loves impossible situations. He also loves bold prayers, and bold trust.

You cannot dodge responsibility for how and why your life is the way it is. Poor past choices don’t define your future, but they will always play a role in your life. Your behavior sets up your future. If you don’t like this place or this relationship, He is ready and willing to do the impossible and move you to a new place. 

If you don’t like your job, you are accountable. And, The Most High is expecting your bold inquiry. 

If you are overweight, you are accountable. The Almighty is expecting you to lean into Him for the strength to change your habits. 

If you are not happy, you are accountable to your Maker to find joy in Him. You alone are creating and have created the situations you are in and the emotions that flow from those situations.

Playing the role of victim and making excuses as a result of past poor choices guarantees you no progress, no healing, and no victory. You will never fix a problem by blaming someone else. Whether the cards you’ve been dealt are good or bad, you’re in charge of yourself now. Will you trust Him for your restoration? Will you be so bold as to ask Him? And, will you move when He builds a bridge?

Every choice you make — including the thoughts you think — has consequences. When you choose the behavior or thought, you choose the consequences. God thoughts have God-sized returns. If you choose to stay with a destructive relationship, then you choose the consequences of pain and suffering. If you choose thoughts contaminated with anger and bitterness, then you will create a war within of alienation and hostility. When you start earnestly praying in expectation and you begin choosing the right behavior and thoughts — which will take a lot of discipline and a glance from the Divine — you’ll get the after effects of a job well done. 

What I continue to find … and it thrills my heart to no end … is this: when You choose to open a space in your heart for the beautiful, then you grow and become the person in Christ that you are truly meant to be. 

Mmm. 

Sit on that truth for a little while. Let it simmer and sink in. 

Wake up. Open space. Go.

“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, DearOne, 

Light breaks through. We come out of dark into day; your life, my life, moves on. Onward is a journey. Arise today, through the strength of God Most High. 

Notice the slide of your new birth as the dark of night blesses the light of a new day … like a newborn glides from the shelter of its mother’s dark womb into the space where dark and light test and bless each other. Newness begins. 

This morn’s dawn presents the Light of our Savior. He awakens the sacred depths as a nurturing presence and calls for us to ask. 

Ask Him

 … for His peace to dwell within

 … for His wisdom to spark our thoughts

 … for His abundance to rock our world

 … for His healing to fill our soul

 … for forgiveness to abound. 

Where jagged edges used to tear at your heart, now the rhythm of His grace will be the extravagant and profound new beginning. 

That’s the power of His creation. That’s the power of His light rising in you and me. 

Wake up. 

Bless the day. 

Go.

“Then this humanlike figure touched me again and gave me strength. He said, ‘Don’t be afraid, friend. Peace. Everything is going to be all right. Take courage. Be strong.’ “Even as he spoke, courage surged up within me.” ‭‭Daniel‬ ‭10:18-19‬ ‭MSG‬‬

So, DearHeart, tell me … what is it that you plan to do from here with your strength? Your Creator only draws you in closer so He can surge back out from you in fiery courageous acts of truth. You have been touched so that you can share the power of the Almighty God of the Universe. Stand up and show your soul. 

Wake up. 

Stand. 

Show your soul.  

Go.

“Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him, and He will act, making your righteousness shine like the dawn, your justice like the noonday.” ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭37:5-6‬ ‭HCSB‬‬
His voice.

His voice, He thundered.

And, only you knew what you had to do.

The other voices called you back. 

The walls closed in. They shook. The Holy One lifted you. With stiff fingers, He pried you out.

You rolled the stones in your pocket. 

And, trembled.

God Almighty, blew Holy winds.

The voices, timbered through the winds, falling dead branches.

A wild night. Dark roads of broken limbs. Rolling boulders.

He led. He leads.

Little by little the voices pale.

Stars burn through the veils of clouds, and you hear the Voice. Ancient. Certain.

And, known, as you are known. “Come”, He says.

His company takes your stride deeper and deeper into Him.

His arms, His heart, His ways.

And, He does what only He can do – leading you to His place.

His place meant only for you to do. 
Wake up. Follow. Go.

“For this is our confidence: The testimony of our conscience is that we have conducted ourselves in the world, and especially toward you, with God-given sincerity and purity, not by fleshly wisdom but by God’s grace.” 2 Corinthians‬ ‭1:12‬ ‭HCSB‬‬
Good morn, SincereOne,

Looking for new opportunities? Do you want your life to take a turn for the better … but, your rotten choices of the past keep haunting, and the ‘better’ just hasn’t shown its face yet. Never mind that. Get your affairs in order so you are ready to move when the opportunity strikes. Stay on point and be ready to spring into action. Do what you promised you would do. Why? 

Because, you have been called by the Maker of the Universe to bring your worthwhile purpose into this life. 

Worthwhile purpose = game face. 

Get your game face on. 

So, just maybe that means it’s time to shake free from the unworthy time-sucker stuff you’re doing ad interim. 

Send the enemy a clear signal that YOU. ARE. READY. And, available for where The Most High desires for you to shine. 

Clear your calendar, FaithfulOne. 

Clear your desk. 

Clear your barn. 

Make room for inspiration to enter – and then strike while red-hot. 

Just because the desire of your heart did not show up yesterday, and has not shown yet today, doesn’t mean you should just fill the empty space while waiting for its arrival. Prepare.

Tiny nudges are moving you in the direction of His desire/your desire. 

Baby steps count.

An “in the meantime” mindset can be a lethal compromise. Be smart. Take care of business. Be responsible. 

Write the letter.

Play the notes.

Dial the number.

Keep the bills paid up. 

Practice, push harder. 

Let the rush of elation open you fully to His call to move. 

God honors your integrity when you are responsible with the opportunities He gives you. And, He leads you to opportunities that are greater still. Grace. 

Wake up. 

Do the responsible things first. 

Go.

“He said, “Don’t worry about it—there are more on our side than on their side.” Then Elisha prayed, “O GOD, open his eyes and let him see.” The eyes of the young man were opened and he saw. A wonder! The whole mountainside full of horses and chariots of fire surrounding Elisha!” 2 Kings 6:16-17 MSG

Hello, God’s Child,

Who is your advocate? Who has set your feet firmly in this place of influence? Who has placed His chariots around you?

Do you trust Him? 

Do you trust Him?

Do you trust His ways?

Your story has purpose … that purpose is healing. We are all wounded, aren’t we? Yet, your Creator planned for you to never be alone, even when the stakes are high, even when your heart is shattered, even when precious ones are taken from you.  

You don’t know how long you will remain here. Life has invited you in for a while. Joys…hurts…pleasure…pain, you are all-in. While you remain, there is so much more going on in the heavenlies all around you than your mind can possibly fathom. God Most High’s beings are in motion. They have been charged to move mountains and thoughts and attitudes and wrong assumptions and blow breezes of knowing into every soul along your trail. And, send breezes of knowing into you. That’s His Holy Spirit at work. 

As souls cross your mind, draw a circle of light around them. Set aside what they have done to you and your loved ones. Now, fill that circle of light with a blessing for their protection and their strength. You can do it – because your own strength is being powerfully fueled by The Almighty. Yahweh. Draw the circle of light. 

There. Now, your healing has begun. 

Wake up. 

Light their circle. 

Go.
