My Story

A captivating tale is a story that captures the heart. But, My Story, is the heart; the heart of the matter and all that matters, for it is the beginning and the end.

“”And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.” Revelation 21:6-7 KJV

Those who’ve thought they’d lost it all can find new life in Me.

A new life is not a continuation of the old, it is new. Why then would you want to carry old thoughts into the new, as if they were unfinished business? Contemplating your past, as if it hadn’t passed, holds your vision backward and hinders you from moving forward–a cause for stumbling.

Turn your face toward the Son,

feel the warmth. I’m not behind you–I beckon you forward. Embrace this new life as if the other never was. Manage your feelings before they manage you!

“How precious is your steadfast love, O God! The children of men take refuge in the shadow of thy wings. They feast on the abundance of thy house, and thou givest them drink from the river of thy delights. for with thee is the fountain of life; in thy light do we see light.” Psalms 36:7-9

“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you; abide in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.” John 15:9-11

“–Jesus spoke to them, saying, ‘I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.'” John 8:12

“If any one serves me, he must follow me; and where I am, there shall my servant be also; if any one serves me, the Father will honor him.” John 12:26

“Do you not know that in a race all runners compete, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. Well, I do not run aimlessly, I do not box as one beating the air; but I pommel my body and subdue it, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.” I Corinthians 9:24-27

“Jesus said to them, ‘The light is with you for a little longer. Walk while you have the light, lest the darkness overtake you; he who walks in the darkness does not know where he goes. While you have the light believe in the light, that you may become sons of light. John 12:35-36a

“I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.” Revelation 1:8 KJV

 

 

Let It Flow!

Your mouth holds the power to loose and the power to bind; it is the key that unlocks your heart. For out of your belly shall flow rivers of living waters, but if you open not your mouth it shall not flow–a dam that binds a spirit so.

Your spirit is meant to be free, active and producing fruit.

Have you ever looked at fruit that has died on the vine? It is dried, shriveled, withered and if you touch it it falls–it is barely hanging on. If you don’t go near it, it will eventually fall on its own, even though the vine is still alive. The fruit dries, falls, because it became ripe, but had no use.

Open your mouth–make use of your spirit.

Out of your belly shall flow rivers of living waters. You have the power to bind on earth and it shall be bound in Heaven. What you loose on earth shall be loosed in Heaven. You will free a man by speaking forgiveness. The act of your mouth, your choice to speak, opens your heart to truly forgive.

You can bind a man with words that perpetuate the sin or loose him with words of forgiveness and love.

“If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.” John 20:23

Your mouth is the key that frees your spirit to do My work.

Love–the key to your heart.

Your mouth–the key to your spirit.

Unlock them both and let it flow!

“Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is from God, that we might understand the gifts bestowed on us by God. And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who possess the Spirit. The unspiritual man does not receive the gifts of the Spirit of God for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.” I Corinthians 2:12-14

“In the last day that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, ‘If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.’ (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)” John 7:37-39 KJV

“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. This I command you, to love one another.” John 15:16-17

“Truly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” Matthew 18:18

“And he said to him, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with allĀ  your soul, and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself.'” Matthew 22:37-39

“Then Peter came up and said to him, ‘Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?’ Jesus said to him, ‘I do not say to you seven times, but seventy times seven.'” Matthew 18:21-22

“Then his lord summoned him and said to him, ‘You wicked servant! I forgave you all that debt because you besought me; and should not you have had mercy on your fellow servant, as I had mercy on you? And in anger his lord delivered him to the jailers, till he should pay all his debt. So also my heavenly Father will do to every one of you, if you do not forgive your brother from your heart.'” Matthew 18:32-35

“The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life, but the mouth of the wicked conceals violence.” Proverbs 10:11

“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in me, and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:5

 

 

Be Still

So many want quick answers…

Hurry–Hurry–please answer my prayer! Often the answer is already there within. The Word is nigh thee, even in thine heart. (See Rom. 10:8)

I am a rewarder of those who diligently seek Me. Quick friendships are shallow and have little value. It takes time spent together to build trust–to build a relationship that lasts.

The woman of Samaria, that came to the well didn’t know Me, but as I sat and talked with her she revealed to Me what she knew and had heard of Me; it allowed Me to clear her misconceptions, which made room for revelation and trust. It was then that she could receive–truly the answer to her heart’s cry.

She had many men in her life and was still empty. But in spending time with Me she was filled, and in joy and delight ran to tell all she knew of the one she had found–the Messiah. (See Jn. 4:4-42)

Come and draw from the deep well

It begins within

Commune in your heart with Me and be still

Know that I am God

Find that I AM a Fountain of Life

I will be found by those who diligently seek Me

With all of your heart

Be Still

“Be still and know that I am God. I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth!” Ps. 46:10

“And without faith it is impossible to please him. For whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.” Heb. 11:6

” How precious is thy steadfast love, O God! The children of men take refuge in the shadow of thy wings. They feast on the abundance of thy house, and thou givest them drink from the river of thy delights. For with thee is the fountain of life; in thy light do we see light.” Ps. 36:7-9

“Behold, God is my salvation: I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the Lord God is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation. With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.” Is. 12:2-3
