Cutting Edge or Cutting a Hedge?

Some are following like scissors–you are closed, you are open, closed, then open; but moving forward in this way only cuts ‘your’ path, it is not following Mine.

To follow ‘like scissors,’ it is your hand that controls, your mind that plans, and I AM not in the project.

Shake the scissors off–set them down.

You don’t need to ‘cut’ a path, for that is forging through–it is toil and I AM not in it.

Lay it down–follow Me.

Be ‘open’ to My plan for your life. . .

I will give you a Key, it doesn’t include strife!

Follow Love, for I AM–

follow Me!

“Put off your old nature which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your minds, after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.” Ephesians 4:22-24

“Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” Ephesians 5:1-2

“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

“The plans of the mind belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord. All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the spirit. Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established. The Lord has made everything for its purpose, even the wicked for the day of trouble. Every one who is arrogant is an abomination to the Lord, be assured, he will not go unpunished. By loyalty and faithfulness iniquity is atoned for, and by the fear of the Lord a man avoids evil. When a man’s ways please the Lord, he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.” Proverbs 16:1-7


I invite you to participate in sending the Lord’s Compassion to inmates in prisons, jails and rehabs nationwide. Please consider joining this ministry to place “Comfort in the Challenge,” “His Voice in My Heart” and, “His Voice in My Heart, the Journey” in the hands of those hidden from society, but not hidden from God. These books are filled with messages from the Heart of God. Messages of love, hope, healing and freedom; as well as many amazing true testimonies of the miraculous power and love of God. This author is not taking anything from the first three published books. All donations will be invested in books to help those struggling to find new life. We offer hope and the Good News of, truly, a new life in Christ!

Proceeds from purchases of “Comfort in the Challenge” will be sent to “Canaanland Ministries” of Autaugaville, Alabama. You may read about their wonderful restoration ministry by visiting their website at: https://www.canaanland.com.

“‘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

What Are You Thinking?

This new year is one of introspect and invention. I want you to take a deep look within . . . I want you to re-invent your life to My specifications.

Your expectation is not wrong, but you will not reach it if you do not tweak your habits and adjust your ways–including your way of thinking.

Consider your ways.

Loss and time have torn at your mind. Think about that and learn from it–

your thinking must change.

Function begins in the mind, but how you think and what you think about can also stop all function.

Meditate on the Word–it will release you from all torment.

When you find peace, then listen for My direction. Do not take direction from the storm. Command the storm–learn from it, but do not run from it.

I may use others to give you confirmation, but I AM your direction–within.

“Apply your mind to instruction and your ear to words of knowledge.” Proverbs 23:12

I AM in the midst of the storm. (Mark 4:38-40)

All around you may be chaos, but you will maintain peace, within, if you know that I AM.

Yes, I AM!

“My son, if your heart is wise, my heart too will be glad. My soul will rejoice when your lips speak what is right. Let not your heart envy sinners, but continue in the fear of the Lord all the day. Surely there is a future, and your hope will not be cut off. Hear my son and be wise, and direct your mind in the way.” Proverbs 23:15-19

“My son, be attentive to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Let them not escape from your sight; keep them within your heart. For they are life to him who finds them, and healing to all his flesh. Keep your heart with all vigilance; for from it flow the springs of life. Put away from you crooked speech, and put devious talk far from you. Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze be straight before you. Take heed to the path of your feet, then all your ways will be sure. Do not swerve to the right or to the left; turn your foot away from evil.” Proverbs 4:20-27

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30

I invite you to click the tab at the top ‘Books for Prisoners’

Thank you to all who have helped send 3,310 books to prisons, jails and rehabs. The new books have been printed and are now at “Prison Book Project” and are being boxed and shipped to the hands of inmates all across the country. You are invited to be involved to send these life-changing books. Donations are being collected for “His Voice in My Heart, Volume II” now written and scheduled to be printed and shipped in the spring.

We appreciate all contributions, big or small–every effort counts, and you share in setting the captives free! Some may never see the outside of those walls, but they can be free in their hearts; and serve their time in anticipation of an eternity of freedom that no one can take away.

“‘Now I will arise,’ says the Lord, ‘now I will lift myself up; now I will be exalted.” Isaiah 33:10

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 for sharing this and for your generous donations, in partnership, to reach this hurting nation!
