A Fire in my Bones!

img_5550

Sometimes I will be talking to someone and the Lord will give me a Word for them. It will be a Word of encouragement…a Word of calling forth what He has purposed for them.

Sometimes it will be a Word directly from the Bible and sometimes it will be a Word from His heart to theirs.

This can happen one-on-one or it can happen in a group situation when I am teaching, preaching, or giving a message.

It can happen when I am walking into a store and the Lord will show me someone He wants me to go to and speak His love for them. I can choose to walk away and not be obedient to His call…but His Word stirring within me is indeed like a fire burning in my bones!

It also happens when I am on social media. I can be looking at a photo and the Lord will speak a Word to me as I’m looking at it. This happened recently with an “eagle photo” a friend of mine posted. I will be writing a post with this Word soon.

Also, many times as I’m writing a comment or a private message to someone…the Lord will begin to speak a specific Word to them that I find myself typing. It’s not planned…it just flows forth.

Ahhhhh Lord! Continue to speak Your Word through me!! Continue to breathe on the fire that is within me and make it burn brighter! I am forever Yours, Almighty God!!

Get Over Yourself and Get Into God!!

I was talking to a friend this morning at church and she commented that she enjoyed my little “message” video on Facebook. I confessed to her that I didn’t know why I found myself posting these videos the last couple of days.

I am overly critical of myself – how I sound…how I look. And I found myself saying, “But, it’s not about me!! It’s about the Lord!”

Immediately, I had one of those AHA moments!! Maybe that’s why the Lord gently pushed me into putting myself out there – for me to get over myself! LOL!

Do you find yourself pulling away from being noticed…wanting to blend into the background? Are you like me…overly critical of yourself…seeing every fault and feeling that everyone else sees them too?

Well, dearest one, get over yourself and get into God!! May we be more concerned about letting HIS Light shine brightly through us and not be so concerned about how OUR “light” looks!

Forgive me, Lord, for being self-conscious instead of God-conscious! Forgive me, Lord, for holding back because of how I feel or how I look! Cover me, Lord, with YOUR beauty; YOUR grace; and YOUR love!! May I be a reflection of YOUR glory!!  

ARE YOU WILLING?

Yesterday as I was driving to my hair appointment, I found myself tearfully praying, “Lord, can you really use me in all my weakness…in all my failures…in all my mistakes?”

As soon as the words left my mouth (I pray out loud most of the time), I heard the Lord’s loving, gentle voice in my spirit say, “I am bigger than your weakness, failures or mistakes!  Yes!  I can use you!”

I am sharing this to encourage anyone who thinks that God couldn’t possibly use them!  It doesn’t matter where you are in your life or what you are experiencing – God can use you for His Glory!!  If you are willing…He is willing!!

Are you willing?

“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”  Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.  2 Corinthians 12:9  ESV

GOD IS HERE!

God is here!! He loves you!
He rejoices over you!
You are precious in His sight!
He is your Strength; your Victorious Champion!

Stand up; Rise up; mighty men and women of the Most High God!! What have we to fear when we have GOD on our side! HALLELUJAH!!!!

“The LORD your God is in your midst,  A victorious warrior.  He will exult over you with joy, He will be quiet in His love, He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy.”   (Zephaniah 3:17)
