His Voice is Protection

Last week I was stopped at a light, second in line, behind a pickup truck. The bed of the truck had a load of heavy steel of some sort. I don’t know what it was but it looked thick and heavy and definitely not aluminum.

I didn’t have much time to reach my destination and would likely have been in an impatient hurry, but I was having a conversation with the Lord. This is so important because, in that moment, I was relaxed and connected when the light turned green and–

I heard the command, “don’t move!”

I didn’t take time to think about it or wonder, I just didn’t move and it felt as if a protective hand was holding me back. Amazingly, the cars behind me didn’t beep their horns; as often happens when people are not seeing you respond to the light. The pickup truck ahead of me did move however, and must have hit the gas pretty hard. He was under the light, just a few feet away, when the entire contents of his truck bed came flying out–straight out the back, every single piece!

When relating this event to a few people, some have made the comments, “That must have been scary.” and, “That sounds harrowing!” That would have been my natural reaction, had I not been ‘connected’ and heard His Voice. As it was, I heard, obeyed, and was safe. Had I moved, my car would have been totaled and there might have been a quick ride to the hospital. In His Presence is perfect peace and I remained there, totally unharmed.

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.” Isaiah 26:3 KJV

Maneuvering my car carefully around the mess, I gave the guy a sympathetic smile and a little wave and drove on to my appointment. He looked pretty embarrassed. Well, he should have been! He really had no business driving around with a big heavy load like that and no tail gate–not even any tie-downs–what was he thinking??? I know what I was thinking, thank you Holy Spirit! Thank you for warning me, and keeping me out of danger!


I am excited to announce that this week my publisher has begun the formatting and final editing process of the next, “His Voice in My Heart” book. Those who have followed right along, know this book has been in process; but it was going to be called “His Voice in My Heart, Volume II.” Well, ‘His Voice in my heart’ changed the title! In fact He changed the two-book set to three. When the third book is ready to reveal, I will tell you just how the Lord guided me in these changes.

I hope you can understand that this is not my work. It has been supernatural every step of the way. I am always amazed and in awe of the Lord’s incredible love for the people He created; and His great desire to heal the human heart. He comforts the brokenhearted and gathers them into His arms. He leads each one out of despair and into the abundant life, that He has prepared.

How wonderful our God is–I am so in awe of Him!

I expect the printing to take place in a month or (two) at the most. Please pray and ask if the Lord would have you join in helping this ministry to reach the brokenhearted, lost and alone. All the books are being distributed free of charge to those in prisons, jails, rehabs and to the homeless. I am especially excited in that, recently, some of the homeless have been asking for the books. They have been very excited about them. It appears the word is getting around, I am so thankful!

Praise the Lord!

“‘Lord, when did we see thee hungry and feed thee, or thirsty and give thee drink? And when did we see thee a stranger and welcome thee, or naked and clothe thee? And when did we see thee sick or in prison and visit thee?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.'” Matthew 25:37-40

Kick Off Your Shoes

There is one condition for you to enter My Kingdom–

that you receive My Blood.

That may seem harsh, but I died a bitter death that you may be made alive, with Me, once again.

“In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace which he lavished upon us.” Ephesians 1:7-8

Do you understand that you are dead in your sin? I once was dead but I AM alive again, that you may enter in . . .

The path is through the Blood.

Every baby is born through a pathway of blood.

Then . . .

Washed, cleansed, and comforted.

You may be born again, through the pathway of Blood–

Mine.

Then washed–

Made clean by the Word.

“Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, that he might present the church to himself in splendor without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.” Ephesians 5:25-27

And comforted–

Receive the Holy Spirit . . .

He is your Comforter and Friend.

“If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.” John 14:15-17

Will you enter in?

Repent of your sins and leave them behind–

as if, taking off your shoes.

You will be standing on holy ground . . .  leave them behind–

There is no remorse or lack in My Kingdom.

But, these things are learned . . .

As you grow to discern, for the first washing is only the beginning. Without roots in good soil, you’ll find you’ll always toil, and that is not Kingdom work!

Enter in, that you may grow . . .

Enter in, that you may know . . . the Kingdom Rules–

For this Kingdom, RULES!

“For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love be servants of one another. For the whole law is fulfilled in one word,’You shall love your neighbor as yourself.'” Galatians 5:13-14

Don’t be left standing at the door . . .

Kick off your shoes–take the first step!

The Cross is the Family Tree.

Come, be ALIVE in Me!

“He is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be pre-eminent. For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.” Colossians 1:18-20

“For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written, “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the cleverness of the clever I will thwart.” Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, it pleased God through the folly of what we preach to save those who believe.” I Corinthians 1:18-21

“But God, who is rich in mercy, out of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with him, and made us sit with him in heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith; and this is not your own doing, it is the gift of God–not because of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:4-10

“But what does it say? The word is near you, on your lips and in your heart (that is, the word of faith which we preach); because, if you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For man believes with his heart and so is justified, and he confesses with his lips, and so is saved. The scripture says, “No one who believes in him will be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; the same Lord is Lord of all and bestows his riches upon all who call upon him. For, ‘every one who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved.'” Romans 10:8-13

He Holds the Future

I am told she was a visitor, and I don’t remember ever seeing her before. She stood out in the isle near me, singing robustly to the Lord. When worship ended, I glanced over and she returned my gaze; the moment she did, the Lord showed me a vision of her all grown up, though she is actually about 7 or 8 years old.

In an instant, I saw her as an adult.

In this glimpse she was standing in front of an empty stage, with microphone in hand; but she was down on the floor level, standing right in front of the people. Though I didn’t see the size of the group, I sensed it to be quite large, as the stage extended quite a span. I could see the front rows of people near her as well, and they lined the length of the stage. In just a moment of time I witnessed what she looked like, height, body shape, clothing, hair, and I knew her demeanor to be feisty, no nonsense–

A passionate warrior for the Lord.

Then, just as suddenly, I was no longer seeing a young woman, but this young girl standing before me.

I had shared something after worship, but I didn’t mention what I had been shown of this girl’s future. Later, as if in confirmation, a testament of her heart, she came to me as I was washing dishes; my church shares a meal together after. She found me in the kitchen and stood at my elbow but slightly behind, waiting for me to notice her. As I turned, she looked up at me with serious eyes and said, “I liked your talk.” I smiled, thanked her, and she quickly darted off.

May she be nurtured to grow in the admonition of the Lord.

May she fulfill the Lord’s call on her life.

I don’t even know her name, but I don’t have to–the Lord knows her future!

He knows I will pray.

That’s why He shows us these things!

“And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.” Ephesians 6:4 NKJV

This same day, also during worship, my son had a powerful encounter with the Lord. His recount of it had many wiping their eyes. In a moment of time, his lifelong quest of questions, laced with doubts, was settled by the Lord Himself! Hallelujah!

Parents, trust the Lord with your children.

He knows the way to each heart. He alone knows the time to reach them–He will reach them!

“Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6 NKJV

“O Lord, thou has searched me and known me! Thou knowest when I sit down and when I rise up; thou discernest my thoughts from afar. Thou searchest out my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways. Even before a word is on my tongue, lo, O Lord, thou knowest it altogether. Thou dost beset me behind and before, and layest thy hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain it.” Psalms 139: 1-6

“For thou didst form my inward parts, thou didst knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise thee, for thou art fearful and wonderful. Wonderful are thy works! Thou knowest me right well; my frame was not hidden from thee, when I was being made in secret, intricately wrought in the depths of the earth. Thy eyes beheld my unformed substance; in thy book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them. How precious to me are thy thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I could count them, they are more than the sand. When I awake, I am still with thee.” Psalms 139:13-18

“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.” Proverbs 3:5-6

Signs of the Times

This past Sunday morning, October 11, 2020, my alarm went off; not my smoke alarm, but the alarm on my phone. It was time to get up and get ready for church. I am usually awake in advance of the ring; to spend some time with the Lord before getting up. But I had been awake in the middle of the night, and had fallen back to sleep.

I opened my eyes to see a thick column of smoke near my bed.

The pillar stood from floor to ceiling and was billowing up toward the ceiling. It was such active smoke, that it appeared to be coming from an intense fire; its origin seemed to be the wall, at floor level. There was only time to notice the smoke, shut off my alarm and conclude that my house was on fire!

I didn’t get past the thought.

It had barely registered in my mind. I hadn’t even had time to notice that there was no smell of smoke or heat; when the column of smoke suddenly swooped up and escaped through the ceiling. I watched amazed, as the last trailing wisp of smoke slipped out and was gone.

Wow!

Not your usual wake up call, but interesting!

A column of smoke is one of the end-time signs mentioned in Joel 2. The scripture is familiar and often quoted, end-time dreams and visions, but quite often the remainder of the verse is left off; the quote unfinished.

There seems to be an increase of visions and dreams in the world, myself included. And this is the third time that I have witnessed smoke in my house. But the other two times the smoke was higher toward the ceiling (again, no physical fire) and horizontal, rather than a pillar.

“‘Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken; then will appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven, and then all the tribes will mourn, and they will see the Son of man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory; and he will send out his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.'” Matthew 24:29-31

Rest assured, He will return!

And the signs of the times are indicating, sooner, rather than later–

are you prepared?

Be Ready!

“‘And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions. Even upon the menservants and maidservants in those days, I will pour out my spirit. And I will give portents in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and columns of smoke. The sun shall be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes. And it shall come to pass that all who call upon the name of the Lord shall be delivered; for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be those who escape, as the Lord has said, and among the survivors shall be those whom the Lord calls.'” Joel 2:28-32 (see also Acts 2:16-21)

“‘From the fig tree learn its lesson; as soon as its branch become tender and puts forth its leaves, you know that summer is near. So also, when you see these things, you know that he is near, at the very gates. Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away till all these things take place.'” Matthew 24:32-34

“‘Therefore you also must be ready; for the Son of man is coming at an hour you do not expect.'” Matthew 24:44

That New Skin Becomes You

About a week ago I discovered a scab that I didn’t know I had and, like a little kid, I picked at it. It was holding strong, so what I further discovered surprised me. Underneath was new skin and the area was already healed. As I wondered at this, for the strong-fastened covering would have indicated otherwise, the Lord spoke this message to me . . .

Healing is under the surface.

You are more healed than you think. The scab remains to provide protection, but you ARE healed. Soon that will fall off for it will not be needed.

During this time, watch carefully to not slip into old patterns. Walk, speak and act on your healing–it is in preparation that the Power transforms you–becomes you.

Trust in what you know and do not allow yourself to be placed back in the bondage of past–you’ve grown beyond.

The new wine will break that old wineskin, so don’t go there anymore!

“And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; if he does, the wine will bust the skins, and the wine is lost, and so are the skins; but new wine is for fresh skins.” Mark 2:22

“Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may prove what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” Romans 12:2

“But you must remember, beloved, the predictions of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; they said to you, “In the last time there will be scoffers, following their own ungodly passions.” It is these who set up divisions, worldly people, devoid of the Spirit. But you, beloved, build yourselves up on your most holy faith; pray in the Holy Spirit; keep yourselves in the love of God; wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. And convince some, who doubt; save some, by snatching them out of the fire; on some have mercy with fear, hating even the garment spotted by the flesh. Now to him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you without blemish before the presence of God, our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and for ever. Amen.” Jude 1:17-24

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 pouring through 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

Announcing A New Published Book!

“His Voice In My Heart”

Listen to His Voice, as He speaks messages to you to affirm, heal, deliver and deepen your relationship IN HIM.

Also Available from Nation of Women Publishing–

“Comfort in the Challenge”

A timely book for this troubling season!

Notice the title. This book was written in dedication to care-givers; 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!

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.

Human nature tends to shoot their best supporting foot, just because it steps a little different than the other. May we all take on the ‘nature’ of God and receive His peace and understanding for one another!

Thank you and God Bless You,

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, “It is finished.” We began rejoicing, praising God and thanking the Angels for their ministry.

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

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!

Update:  Two weeks later, everything was confirmed that we had been led to pray. Praise the Lord!

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

Notice the title. This book was written in dedication to care-givers; 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!

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!
