At times that title from Proverbs 3:6 seems like a distant dream, but can we find proof that it is working?
I know of a couple who started attending a particular church because they felt like they should. They have been faithful for years now and have worked hard to help out. They have Read more…
How would you answer the question, “What would love to do?”
So it seems I’ll be on this journey at least for now in answering the question. So let’s explore that here for a few minutes.
Think about what you would do at every intersection of your choices today if love was your first priority? What would you post on social media? What would you tell your family when you talk to them?
If love has its voice at every turn of your life what would that mean to you? I think it’s safe to say that it would cause change in everyone’s life.
By no means am I saying Read more…
You ever have one those times when the lightbulb just comes on? That’s what happened to me this morning!
From my experience there seems to be a theme most of the time in my spiritual walk. Like is if there’s one certain point that I need to learn and until I do it just keeps echoing in my quiet time.
Has this ever happened to you?
The theme has been -and may still be walking in the ways of Jesus. So that caused me to do is to go into thought about what Jesus did when he was here on the Earth. And some cases what he still doing today.
So what did Jesus do? He spent a lot of time Read more…
I am reading through the Proverbs each day of the month again so today is Proverbs 13.
Here is a verse that stood out to me: 13:8 The ransom of a man’s life are his riches: but the poor heareth not rebuke.
So I do not consider myself poor but I am sure not rich either so I have to ask myself… am I open for rebuke or correction?
Is my lack of listening holding me back?
Teach me to be more open Father. I am open to your correction.
The following is from Nov 29th 2012. I am working on finding money to pay the bills. Handyman work tends to lean off a little through the Winter, so money was tight.
In fact this Winter I went 3 months without any real work to do. Yet somehow we did not go hungry and we did not get kicked out of our house. This amazes me.
What do I do Jesus? How do I find the business?
A strong Spirit will sustain you. Continue to build your spirit and you will know what to do.
You have too many things on the table again so I am competing with a lot Read more…
Journaling to hear the voice of Jesus is so natural you really have to let the noise in to miss it. Having said that I want to lay out some things I have found must be in place to hear from God.
Let’s talk about some simple ways to know you are hearing from God and not just hearing “voices” in your head.
God’s Word must be a foundation to everything you hear
So many times what Jesus has told me lines up with a verse I already know. This only makes sense Read more…
What do I do to overcome the World, both in me and outside of me?
Time with Jesus!
What do you have for me today Jesus?
You will become what you are exposed to the most. So the more time you are exposed to me and my presence you will be stronger.
This has to do with time. Time with you will bring your Words in my heart on what to do at each choice?
Yes, you got it!
I am always here. I am always speaking and showing you the way to the next choice. I am the way, the truth, and the life! Nothing but good will come from Read more…
What do I do? How do I get my stuff done?
How do I proceed Jesus?
How do we overcome? What will finally change this cycle of seemingly defeat? We want to be in the best place with you Jesus! This is the only important thing in life. In fact there is no life outside of your plan, that is only death.
I am here to hear your voice Jesus!
Nothing will replace time with me. My sheep hear my voice.
For my sheep to hear me they must be with me much of the time. Walk with me and talk with me, at times when there is nothing else pulling at your focus.
Seek first my Kingdom, my way of doing things. This is the only way you will understand the things around you.
I have given you the keys, now use them. Do what I would do.
Listen to hear.
Watch to see.
Act on what you hear and see my what my Father does and says. This is the way of my Kingdom.
We don’t vote here. We don’t make new policies to take care of the poor. But then we don’t have poor either. What a way to live!
Why don’t we have poor? We live in total Love! Not the kind of love for a thing, an item, but the kind you would gladly lay down your life for. That is what Jesus did! That is true love. Love that changes things!
My ways are the ways of the Kingdom. I have not stopped preaching this since my first time on the Earth and I will not stop until the Father says otherwise.
My ways are ways of blessing and not cursing. I am looking for ways to help you, not ever to hinder you.
When you have fun so do I. When you are sad, well it tugs at me as well. So don’t be sad, be glad in all that I have given you. You are rich in blessings!
Here is an idea to get your pen flowing if you find yourself stuck. Just start writing down questions, don’t look for all the answers right away just focus on the getting to 100 Questions. Here is a post that will help with that, 100 Questions
I feel under it all, how can I fix this?
We talked about some things already this morning. What more do you have for me?
What do I do to get things done and serve you better?
How do I find the staff I need?
I feel under it all and yet I’m not making much money, how can I fix this?
Time with you is key. It is the sharpening of the axe.
Goals inspired by you will help me stay on course.
I said I would Bless your business, it is Blessed! That will not change no matter what you do.
Now you must walk in that Blessing for it to work on your behalf.
How do I walk in that Blessing?
First, keep a clear head. You get so many things going the path is not clear. When you close your eyes I want you to see your plans unfolding. Picture a flat piece of cardboard folding into a box that then is a tool. This is what you must be seeing when you close your eyes and see your goals getting done.
So I need to picture and see my goals? It’s not enough to just say them or write them?
Nope! If you don’t see them then there is now creative power to make them real, they are thought only.
For matter to be added to your dreams you must empower your imagination. This is not meant to sound strange. Just think of it this way. What tool, website, or other thing of any sort has come into being without first being a thought? Nothing!
Everything starts as a thought and then we put matter, wood, steel, etc. to it and it becomes a tool.
Why would business concepts be any different? Just because it is in your mind does not make it real. You must add your creative power to it. You do this through “seeing it” just like so many sports players do. If they don’t see it, it won’t happen!
I will practice seeing the completeness of my dreams! Thank you Jesus!
Wow! Today is Dad’s 70th birthday!
What do you have for me Jesus?
Walk in my ways, do what I do and you will have what I have. I have paid the price for Adam’s failure so you don’t have to. That is the only thing you don’t model.
Yes I spent much of my time learning but I played and enjoyed being with others as well. I did have a life after all.
I had temptations and things that would try to pull me off course just like you do. And I have given you the keys to overcome just like I had the power to overcome.
What are the keys I have now?
Well, I took the keys of Death, Hell, and the Grave. You will not see those any more. So each thing that would hold this over your head is in reality powerless to case you death. Think of it like a law that cannot be enforced. But the time you spent in that mode of that “sin” is lost. That hurts you more than anything else.
But the only thing that can cause you death is thinking that you have “Death” due. Remember, I paid the price, I took Death! Death has no power over you! You are the Living! You are in me and I am Life!
Remember the words “the wages of sin is death”? I paid that wage for you. If Death could see you it would only see me on the cross and have to move on.
No wages due!
If a person is in debt to a bank, then who really owns the property that debt is hooked to? The bank. If you were still living under that sin then you would have a debt or wage due to Death. But I took Death!
The wages of sin are paid! Are you getting this?
Yes you can sin, and this sin can keep you back from my plan, but it is not of me. It is of your own making. Remember, you have the power to hold sin against yourself.
It’s just not me holding it over you. Those days are over!
