A Choice Relationship

I’m not a puppet.

Many only think of Me at their convenience, in passing by or when they have a need.

I AM here for you, always, but are you here for Me?

A relationship is a bond, tightly woven like a cloth. Lives so interlaced that you fail to see where one begins and another ends.

Do you know why?

A relationship with Me is everlasting–eternal.

Much like a cloth, your thoughts are ‘woven’ into My Heart; My Heart is woven into your life–tightly together, never to part.

Many wander, in a wilderness state-of-being in their life; with no purpose, plan or hope for their future–

It is the fruit of no relationship.

It is impossible to have a true relationship with Me, but have no purpose in you.

I AM your purpose!

In pursuing Me, I AM revealing in you, and you will know the direction for your life–in your life and throughout your life.

I Lead, but I AM not merely here for you to pull a string when you want something–

I AM not a puppet.

But I do choose to have relationship with you.

You may choose otherwise, but a chosen one will be a woven one or I will choose another–

You Choose.

“For many are called, but few are chosen.” Matthew 22:14

“This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light and in him is no darkness at all. If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not live according to the truth; but if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.” I John 1:5-7

“Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations.” Deuteronomy 7:9

“You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide; so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you.” John 15:16

“Comfort in the Challenge”

A timely book for this troubling season!

Notice the title. This book was created and printed in 2019 before anyone had ever heard of Covid 19. I had a different title planned for the book, but the publisher rejected my title and suggested this title that the Lord had spoken to her. We didn’t know what was coming, but He did! This book wasn’t written to sensationalize a current event. It was spoken by God in provision for a time to come and that time is now! A book filled with God’s Comforting Messages in times of trouble. All proceeds from sales, for the lifetime of this book, go directly to Canaanland Ministries of Autaugaville, Alabama. Thank you, for being a BLESSING in helping these men to restore!

These books are not my words; other than testimony pages, I didn’t create the messages, He did. Listen as He speaks to your heart and takes you on a journey to bring healing and wholeness to your spirit, soul and body. These messages speak His heart, but they are not to replace the Word; they serve to amplify the Word with practical application and insight. Read the Word. Scriptures are included with every message. Take the time to look them up, study the Word. It is the Word that Saves, Delivers and Heals. Jesus IS the Word, and He chooses to have relationship with YOU!

Do not hold back from supporting ministries that are preaching the gospel around the world. They serve the Lord and are reaching places you may never see. When you support the preaching of the gospel, you support the Lord’s work and hasten our coming Lord, King Jesus!

‘His Voice In My Heart’

The Back Cover:

“You don’t have to be behind bars to be imprisoned in life. Life is challenging and feelings can overwhelm. The hurting heart longs to be free–to find destiny and purpose in life.

Your pain is not God’s plan for you. He came to set the captives FREE!

‘His Voice in My Heart’ is a journey that speaks from the Heart of God. Listen as His Love validates you, and speaks messages to heal, confirm, and deepen your relationship IN HIM.

You may not struggle in life but know of one who does. ‘His Voice in My Heart’ will give insight into the journey of another, deepening your understanding of what they face while allowing His compassion to fill your heart for another.

Begin the journey to freedom. It begins in your heart as He speaks to you through His Word and ‘His Voice in My Heart.'”

The Ministry:

“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good tidings to the afflicted; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn; to grant to those who mourn in Zion–to give them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified.” Isaiah 61:1-3

This was Jesus’ ministry on this earth. He came to free each and every one that would receive. In varying degrees we have all been hurt, wounded and oppressed. Some more than others, but I don’t know of anyone who has escaped having times of hurts and wounds in their life. As I was sorting messages for ‘Comfort in the Challenge’ one word arose big in my heart, prisoners. I listened in my heart and knew He had a book in mind for them. He directed me in placement of the messages and one book became two (volume II coming soon). When reading them through, His compassion enveloped me so strongly that tears were streaming down my face. He came to give us abundant life and when we are bound in our hearts, it’s not what He paid for. He longs for you to be free! To whatever degree you have need–He is here, He is able!

Time Builds Trust

Are you desperately seeking answers for questions you don’t even know how to express?

They key word here is desperate.

If you related to the question, then you are not at peace and you don’t trust Me. For trust is willing to wait for answers–wait for circumstances to change–wait on Me.

When you trust, truly trust, it doesn’t matter to you the outcome, for you know that you have My full attention at all times. You know that I have your heart in mind–

I will follow through.

Sometimes it takes years for an answer to develop. But in reality, what is developing is you . . .

  • Your Attitude
  • Your Faith
  • Your Trust
  • Your Strength

Sometimes I wait for you to believe to receive.

Sometimes I wait for you–I wait to trust you–will you trust Me too?

Together, we will be!

“Let not loyalty and faithfulness forsake you; bind them about your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good repute in the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord, and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones.” Proverbs 3:3-8

“Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear him, on those who hope in his steadfast love, that he may deliver their soul from death, and keep them alive in famine. Our soul waits for the Lord; he is our help and shield. Yea, our heart is glad in him, because we trust in his holy name.” Psalms 33:18-21

Do not hold back from supporting ministries that are preaching the gospel around the world. They serve the Lord and are reaching places you may never see. When you support the preaching of the gospel, you support the Lord’s work and hasten our coming Lord, King Jesus!

It’s Time to UnPack!

An example of an unmet expectation is when you carry disappointment–carry it like a knapsack; and within the disappoint, much like filling a container, a knapsack, you begin to pack every hurt, wound, broken relationship and disappointment from your past, into the midst of it.

You rehearse it like a play–what you would have said, should have said–that you perceive would have made it right.

Are you the creator of your life?

Do you have the ability to rewrite history?

The answer to both is no.

But you do have the ability to rewrite your future.

You see when you rehearse, over and over, your past and your pain, you develop disgruntlement and bitterness; and even if ever so slight, it will affect your future.

It is like paying interest on a debt that you don’t owe, for your past belongs to Me.

I exchanged it with My Blood, in Forgiveness for your sins–the Perfect Sacrifice to perfect you for all time!

Lay the knapsack down.

You cannot embrace your future, if you are holding on to your past–your heart will not be ready. In looking back, you won’t see the path that leads to tomorrow–the path that you ‘see’ leads to sorrow.

Turn around, see Me!

Give up the fight.

“Therefore, if any one is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ, God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. So we are ambassadors for Christ. God making his appeal through us. We beseech you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” 2 Corinthians 5:17-21

“Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassion, kindness, lowliness, meekness, and patience, forbearing one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful.” Colossians 3:12-15

The Planted Seed

Nestled in the heart of man is the seed that lies dormant, until it is addressed. Often, for years, it may go unnoticed–no evidence that it is there, but it is . . .

I put it there.

It is the seed of Love.

The spirit of man carries My Nature, planted in their heart–My Nature is Love.

Man ‘grows’ to hate, he isn’t born hateful.

It is a baby’s first instinct to nurse–be nurtured and then to smile. The nurturing, cuddling, holding, begins the growth of that seed of Love inside. It takes very little effort to begin the growth of Love, My Nature, inside the heart of man.

But even so, very little effort will quench!

Trust is broken, fear envelops. But ‘still’ the seed remains–Love. It is the core of man, his True Nature of God, dwelling inside. But experience ‘tells it,’ whether to develop or remain a seed.

Be that ‘experience’ to the next one you meet.

I AM not asking that you awaken them to sin. I AM asking that you touch the heart within.

An untouched heart lies dormant–cold. Years of self-protecting, may make them difficult to reach. But you have the ability to cover the breach. (I Peter 4:8)

You who’ve developed My Love inside–show them that Love–you be their guide!

Love or hate?

Reach them before it’s too late!

Nurture the seed, spoil the weeds–teach them to ABIDE.

“Beloved let us love one another; for love is of God, and he who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God; for God is love. In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live though him. In this is love, not that we loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the expiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No man has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us. By this we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he has given us of his own Spirit.” I John 4:7-13

“Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. So we know and believe the love God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. In this is love perfected with us, that we may have confidence for the day of judgment, because as he is so are we in this world.” I John 4:15-17

“There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and he who fears is not perfected in love. We love, because he first loved us.” I John 4:18

“And this commandment we have from him, that he who loves God should love his brother also.” I John 4:21

“The Lord looks down from heaven, he sees all the sons of men; from where he sits enthroned he looks forth on all the inhabitants of the earth, he who fashions the hearts of them all, and observes all their deeds.” Psalms 33:13-15
