Thankful to Be Alive!

God saved my life yesterday, as I was heading to work.

I was heading up a hill on my road when a truck, coming from the opposite direction, veered off the road, corrected itself and came into my lane. This was the only time they were driving straight and they were headed straight for me.

I watched in amazement.

It was so surreal that I didn’t react. I braked and glanced to the side but there was nowhere to go, as I was heading up hill and it dropped off on my side. The truck came within just a couple of yards, at most, and then lurched into their lane.

As they drove past I could see it was a couple of young guys. So I thought they were maybe playing a game of chicken with me; but as they came into my rear view mirror, I watched them run off the road again; and then again they got into my lane and continued on, now veering all over the road.

I called 911.

My worst thought of the whole thing was after I called 911. I thought that they might kill themselves and others. I really didn’t have fear, no emotion at all except to watch it happen like a movie.

It seems at the worst of times, the Lord gives His calm.

In my past, a man came at me with a loaded gun; after he had just beaten me severely. At the time, I had no fear. I had a concussion and at one point was only half conscious, but the Lord gave me strength; and I was able to talk him out of the bullets. It was afterward that I went into shock, but at the time I was able to do what I had to do and not be afraid.

The Spirit of God spoke through me and he broke down, crumpled to the floor and sobbed. God then gave me immediate forgiveness for him and I was able to comfort him. I am not saying that anyone should stay with a violent person. I was not in relationship with this man; I had just started working for him, and barely knew him. He needed help and he got it, but his help began with the love of God, and His forgiveness in my heart.

In the midst of this, actually when he ran for the gun, the Lord told me the man had demons. After he had broken down and I had the bullets in my hand, I confronted him with this information. He admitted it and told me that they had been telling him to kill himself since he was 13 years old.

I prayed deliverance over him. It was a long time ago and I was inexperienced, but acted in faith with what little I knew. What I knew was how much I didn’t know, but God’s Spirit was on me to bring to light the root of that man’s behavior.

But God doesn’t just expose sin; He then poured His Compassion, Forgiveness and Comfort through me, to this man. That is how great our Jesus is! He brings to light, He delivers and He heals; and He uses us, even in our weakest moment, because IN HIM, we are strong!

I believe my Angel acted on my behalf to make that truck veer at the last minute.

I am learning of the Angels through their activities in my life. This morning I wasn’t looking for it but the Lord led me to a scripture referring to Angels, Psalms 103:20.

“Bless the Lord, O you his angels, you mighty ones who do his word, hearkening to the voice of his word!” Psalms 103:20

I hadn’t seen that when I was searching through the scriptures, regarding my last post, ‘Partnering with Angels.’ So now I see this and wonder . . . Might we command the Angels, when we speak God’s Word?

God sends them on behalf of our prayer in faith to His Word; and they come to act in our behalf, in accordance to the Word. When we speak His Word, and pray in line with His Word, we are ‘giving voice’ to His Word.

So I rarely write on this blog from my own perspective. The messages you read come from God. I receive a message in 5 minutes, maybe 10 if it is a really long one. They are not my thoughts or words, but from the Spirit of God within me. But occasionally I write from me. This is one of those occasions, because I wanted to say,

Thank God I am ALIVE!

Happy 4th of July everyone!

For those in the USA, it is our celebration of freedom! For everyone who knows the Lord, we celebrate FREEDOM in Him, no matter where you live or what day it is!

For those who don’t know Him, you don’t know TRUE FREEDOM!

Won’t you ask Him today to come into your heart, and let Him show you what I mean?

You will never regret it.

It will be the greatest day of your life!

“For God sent the Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him. He who believes in him is not condemned; he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.” John 3:17-18

Partnering with Angels

Last night I fell into a deep sleep and had a dream.

As I awakened and was pondering the dream, the Lord spoke a name to me of someone I know. He spoke his name four times. There was such an urgency in my spirit from that name spoken to my heart, and the context of the dream, that I immediately began to pray. I felt the intensity so strongly, that I then called on leadership from my church to join in agreement. There is more power in agreement, and even though it was after midnight and I knew she would be asleep–

I felt a strong necessity in my heart to PRAY RIGHT NOW!

I am so happy she was willing and heard the call for help because, as we prayed, an anointing came on our prayer. It came just as she was speaking, and I urged her to continue. Within minutes, the Angels arrived. I could not see them, but my dog jumped up on the couch; looking behind the couch, which is open-backed to a hallway, he let out a fierce growl. It was the same growl he gave when the Angel came a few days ago and touched my shoulders. I have only heard this growl from him three times and each time it preceded an Angel. This time the Angel touched me on my arm. I knew in my spirit that he was directing me to send them on assignment. So I commissioned them to go to the couple we were praying for, to minister to them on behalf of our prayers.

They immediately left, and we continued to pray.

In what seemed like a very short time, they returned. Again my dog alerted with the fierce growl, which they must silence, for each time he only gets out one quick growl; and then he stops and doesn’t bark, whine, growl further or even move a muscle but his eyes never leave that spot! I heard three times the statement, “It is finished.” We began rejoicing, praising God and thanking the Angels for their ministry.

Authors Note: I have since searched the Bible for scripture to back up this “Commissioning the Angels” and at that time did not find any. But later the Lord led me to Psalm 103:20. The angels hearken unto the voice of His Word. We were praying and speaking His Word. I am thankful for the ministry of the angels; for their ministry to others on behalf of our prayers.

I didn’t know I had that kind of adrenaline left in me.

It was exhilarating and wonderful to know that we can partner with the Angels of God, participating in warfare, for our brothers and sisters in Christ. I praise God for His unending Faithfulness to His children!

I remember a time, many years ago, when I had a fellowship group that met in my home. We were worshiping, and I felt an unction to stop immediately and pray for the son of a woman present in the group. We obeyed and she later found out that he had been, AT THAT MOMENT, rock climbing and had lost his footing. He was hanging precariously off the side of a cliff . . .

I expect the Angels helped him to safety.

She reported back to us, and praised God for her son being safe; an incident that we knew nothing about, but participated in because God knew and we obeyed.

We have legions of Angels at our disposal, waiting to act on our behalf; when we are acting in agreement with the Lord and His Word. Just think of the impact the Body of Christ could have in this world if we all find our place; and take prayer to a higher level–in communion with the very heart and agenda of God!

I urge you to seek Him for your place in the Kingdom here on earth.

There is much to be done and everyone has a part!

“But to which of the angels said he at any time, sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool? Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?” Hebrews 1:13-14 KJV

“Do you think that I cannot appeal to my Father, and he will at once send me more than twelve legions of angels?” Matthew 26:53

“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I go to the Father. Whatever you ask in my name, I will do it, that the Father may be glorified in the Son; if you ask anything in my name, I will do it.” John 14:12-14

A New Open Door

In my quiet time with the Lord, I had a vision of a man wearing a crisp, clean, white dress shirt, but no pants. Though the vision was not indecent or sexual in any way (it was just a long shirt and his leg from the side), yet I instinctively bound and cast, but it did not obey and then immediately this message came forth  . . .

You  have polished and served well in the first half of your journey, but there is yet more to come. The anointing you have been operating in will change; the familiar, not so. For I have a new beginning and a new walk prepared for you, that you are not yet ‘dressed’ for. . .

Spend time in quiet with me–shutting out the noise and stimulation of the world; for this new impartation will be of a different ‘flavor’; Do you not sense it, even now? The door you see now open, I have opened for more, and yet the past will not close. . .

Come close to Me and I will show you each step along the way. I will guide you in your purpose–this is your long-awaited Day!

“And the Lord answered me; ‘Write the vision; make it plain upon tablets, so he may run who reads it. For still the vision awaits its time; it hastens to the end–it will not lie. If it seem slow, wait for it; it will surely come, it will not delay. Behold, he whose soul is not upright in him shall fail, but the righteous shall live by his faith.'” Habakkuk 2:2-4

Post-it Note: I received this message on June 8th, 2020, but was not released to post it until today, June 15th.

Bread for the Multitudes

Think of a recipe you wish to make. You gather all the ingredients, but the main ingredient–say, flour, you don’t have.

Do you continue without it?

Would it be edible or even presentable?

What if you were making bread–Without flour?

What is a Christian believer–Christ follower, without love?

It cannot be.

Love is Key!

Without love, they cannot see Me!

“I am the bread of life.” John 6:48

You must first receive what you believe or you have nothing to give. Many are working on ‘fine-tuning’ their recipe, but haven’t noticed that the key ingredient is missing–Love.

It’s who I AM.

To follow Me, it’s a must or there’s no Bread.

Got Love?

“Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you seek me, not because you saw signs, but because you ate your fill of the loaves. Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to eternal life, which the Son of man will give to you; for on him has God the Father set his seal.” “I am the living bread which came down from heaven; if any one eats of this bread, he will live for ever; and the bread which I shall give for the life of the world is my flesh.” John 6:26-27, 51

“We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love abides in death. Any one who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him. By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us; and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.” I John 3:13-16

“By this we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he has given us of his own Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son as the Savior of the world. 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 4:13-17

“And this is his commandment, that we should believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ and love one another, just as he has commanded us. All who keep his commandments abide in him, and he in them. And by this we know that he abides in us, by the Spirit which he has given us.” I John 3:23-24

‘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!

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

Flying Safe!

A plane may have flown a thousand flights, with an experienced pilot at the helm, yet could easily crash and burn without outside guidance.

Some decisions must not be made on your own; you need guidance from above, from one who sees the whole picture and your future.

You must pray!

Do you understand that, without Me, you wouldn’t have an inkling of where to go? Many fly on autopilot and don’t realize I AM guiding.

Be more aware of My guidance in your life–My direction.

Be actively involved.

Pray with an expectation to hear, for I AM here and I wish to speak to you. I wish to be involved in your process, not just called upon when you are hurting or have lost your way.

I AM Friend.

I AM Family.

I AM the Voice you hear–tune in so I AM clear!

When you consider the way–I AM!

“Yea, thou dost light my lamp; the Lord my God lightens my darkness. Yea, by my God I can leap over a wall. This God–his way is perfect; the promise of the Lord proves true; he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him. For who is God, but the Lord? And who is a rock, except our God? The God who girded me with strength, and made my way safe. He made my feet like hinds’ feet, and set me secure on the heights. He trains my hands for war, so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze. Thou hast given me the shield of thy salvation, and thy right had supported me, and thy help made me great. Thou didst give a wide place for my steps under me, and my feet did not slip.” Psalms 18:28-36

“Let me hear in the morning of thy steadfast love, for in thee do I put my trust. Teach me the way I should go, for to thee I lift up my soul. Deliver me, O Lord, from my enemies! I have fled to thee for refuge! Teach me to do thy will, for thou art my God! Let thy good spirit lead me on a level path!” Psalms 143:8-10

“Blessed be the Lord! For he has heard the voice of my supplications. The Lord is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts; so I am helped, and my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him. The Lord is the strength of his people, he is the saving refuge of his anointed. O save thy people, and bless thy heritage; be thou their shepherd, and carry them forever.” Psalms 28:6-9

Right Place Right Time

Work with Me not for Me, for then it is not as work–it flows.

Allow the Holy Spirit to train your hands to move with your heart, as one, for therein am I.

“Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish thou the work of our hands upon us, yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.” Psalms 90:17

I have your next step already prepared. . . and the next. . . and the next.

But your concern should be that of your step.

I will consider your future, but you consider your step.

  • Does it follow My Word?
  • Does it flow with My Grace?
  • Do you understand its place?

For placement is just as important as timing, and it’s not a race if you don’t know your place–I will see you through each day.

You just keep in step!

Follow My pace–this is your race, for you took My place; just as I took yours, when we became one; that together we may run–to the finish!

It is finished.

For I know the end–I AM!

Do you know your place?

Then let’s run!

“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10

“Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.” Ephesians 5:15-17

My First Book is Now Available

‘Comfort In The Challenge’

“You don’t have to look far to find someone coping with a challenge. It may be a friend, co-worker, parent or child. Maybe you need only to look within. The list of trials in life is endless–the challenge within. But God knows the need, and He knows the heart of the one you love–He knows YOU!

‘Comfort in the Challenge’ is filled with messages spoken from the heart of God. Inside you will find that God loves you and He cares about you, personally, and what you care about matters to Him. He wants to take that care, in exchange, with His thoughts of Love, Hope, Healing, and Direction. He speaks to the need, He speaks to You, to bring you–‘Comfort In The Challenge.'”

All royalties for the life of this book will go directly to the ministry, Canaanland, of Autaugaville, Alabama. Canaanland, takes in men that have lost control of their lives to addiction and crime. Their tremendous (40 year) success rate has often prompted the judges of the surrounding area to offer, Canaanland, as an alternative to jail time. But, Canaanland, is not a bail from jail; it is a golden opportunity for those who truly want a new life! I have met some of these men and they are so full of joy that they absolutely shine–truly transformed by the love of God.

Canaanland charges nothing for a year stay; including room and board for their families as well, if necessary. I find the true dedication of Canaanland, in surrounding these men with love, and the life-changing power of the Word of God, to be unsurpassed. All is made possible through the dedication and hard work of these men, and generous donations of partner support.

It is their vision, to have a ‘Canaanland’ in every state, and my vision for this book, to help them realize this goal. Will you join me in helping these men and their families receive a new life? Will you consider purchasing ‘Comfort in the Challenge’ for your friends, loved ones, for yourself–for Canaanland? The books are beautiful and I am over-the-top excited for you to receive yours!

Good Morning Jesus!

JESUS IS ALIVE!

My sins didn’t stop you.

Death didn’t defeat you.

The grave couldn’t keep you.

You are alive!

Praise God you are coming again!!

You are coming for me and all who’ll believe!

“And Peter opened his mouth and said: ‘ Truly I perceive that God shows no partiality, but in every nation anyone who fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him.

You know the word which he sent to Israel, preaching good news of peace by Jesus Christ (he is Lord of all), the word which was proclaimed throughout all Judea, beginning from Galilee after the baptism which John preached; how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power; how he went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.

And we are witnesses to all that he did both in the country of the Jews and in Jerusalem. They put him to death by hanging him on a tree; but God raised him on the third day and made him manifest; not to all the people but to us who were chosen by God as witnesses, who ate and drank with him after he rose from the dead.

And he commanded us to preach to the people, and to testify that he is the one ordained by God to be judge of the living and the dead. To him all the prophets bear witness that every one who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name.'” Acts 10:34-43

Good morning Lord Jesus!

We celebrate You!

We Love You!

Thank You!

 

 

The Best Is Yet To Come!

You are releasing the past, it flows out of you through the tears. Do you feel the release? Do not think that you are rejecting those you’ve loved or discarding who you are–no, you are becoming.

As a flower opens to the morning sun, your life opens to more.

The richest colors of the flower are revealed the times you see deep inside, but you would never see them had the flower not opened. You must open yourself again and again for others to see the rich beauty inside. You are multi-dimensional, uniquely gifted–even so that you do not fully understand who you are and what you are capable of.

Ever evolving, your personality develops with each new experience you embrace.

Do not fear my calling, but open your heart wide for more.

“Make me to know thy ways, O Lord,teach me thy paths. Lead me in thy truth, and teach me, for thou art the God of my salvation; for thee I wait all the day long.” Psalms 25:4-5

I have only good intentions for you. I have tolerated the choices you have made, knowing some would hurt you–ever wanting to spare you, but I don’t control.

You are the one that ultimately decides the direction of your life.

I guide, I console, I AM here to see you through, but I do not control.

“Good and upright is the Lord; therefore he instructs sinners in the way. He leads the humble in what is right, and teaches the humble the way. All the paths of the Lord are steadfast love and faithfulness, for those who keep his covenant and his testimonies.” Psalms 25:8-10

You choose.

Choose wisdom, for I AM here.

I will guide you to the path that will bless you if you linger to hear–more.

Much of your life has been spent undoing the choices you have made that didn’t include Me.

Let’s change that.

Let’s find your perfect fit.

There is still more.

Go ahead, cry the tears that cleanse and release, but do not close your heart–open your heart in expectation. For the best is yet to come.

“For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding; he stores up sound wisdom for the upright; he is a shield to those who walk in integrity, guarding the paths of justice and preserving the way of his saints. Then you will understand righteousness and justice and equity, every good path; for wisdom will come into your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul–” Proverbs 2:6-10

“Hear for I will speak noble things, and from my lips will come what is right; for my mouth will utter truth; wickedness is an abomination to my lips. all the words of my mouth are righteous; there is nothing twisted or crooked in them. They are all upright to him who understands and right to those who find knowledge. Take my instructions instead of silver, and knowledge instead of choice gold for wisdom is better than jewels, and all that you desire cannot compare with her.” Proverbs 8:6-11

“For thou hast delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling; I walk before the Lord in the land of the living. I kept my faith, even when I said, ‘I am greatly afflicted’–” Psalms 116:8-11
