What Has He Called You To Do?

There are many “good things” to do in our churches and in the Kingdom. We love the Lord so much we want to do them all!

Beloved, you are not called to do everything! You are only called to do those things that the Lord has called you to do!

As each of us walk in our calling….as each of us use the Gifts that have been given us by the Holy Spirit…God’s work shall be done!

Do NOT allow the enemy to use guilt to have you take on more than you should.

We are all just a part of the Body of Christ. Let Him who is the Head tell us how to move in perfect harmony with one another.

Beloved, lay down frustration, weariness, and pride…and let God tell you when to move and when to rest…

SPEAK LIFE!

Are we talking too much about all the wrong things going on in our lives or in the lives of others?

There comes a time when just talking about and lamenting our current circumstances needs to end. It’s time to start DECLARING and DECREEING God’s will in our circumstances and in the circumstances that others are facing!

The Lord is calling us to-

SPEAK LIFE!  SPEAK LIFE!  SPEAK LIFE!

And watch the circumstances turnaround!  Watch the dead things come to life!!

WATCH AND SEE!!

OPEN YOUR MOUTH AND SPEAK!!

“The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life…”.     ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭10:11‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“For it is not you who will be speaking—it will be the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.” Matthew‬ ‭10:20‬ ‭NLT‬‬

A NEW BLOOMING!

Sitting in my recliner – where I have been sleeping and resting and praying. I am gazing at the beautiful flowers on the table across the room and they have given me such joy!

More blooms have opened and I am reminded of how the Lord continues to work in our lives day-by-day.

We bloom in different ways at different times in our lives. Some times we may feel that our “blooming” is done. But, I would say to you that it is just that your blooms are changing! Be patient if you are at the end of one blooming. A new blooming is getting ready to burst forth!! And it will be beautiful!!

NEW YEAR – 2017

IT’S A NEW YEAR!

It’s time to leave behind those things that have bound you up;

that have kept you from living the life that God has called you to live;

that have caused you to live in darkness instead of light.

IT’S A NEW YEAR!

It’s time to tune our hearing to God’s frequency of sound;

to tune out the sounds of disharmony, disunity, and disappointment.  

IT’S A NEW YEAR!

It’s time to rise up and discard our dead, unproductive life habits

and embrace a life of faith, power, and love.

IT’S A NEW YEAR!

BE RELEASED INTO YOUR DESTINY!


HOLY WINDSHIELD!

As I lay in bed this morning, in that moment of fresh awakening, I had a quick vision from the Lord.

I saw a windshield in front of me – what I would see if I was in the car looking out. The windshield was spotted with many black dots. As this vision quickly disappeared, I asked the Lord what I was seeing. I “heard” the following in my spirit:

“As you go through life, there are many things that can clutter up your vision so that you are not seeing as clearly as you should. Just like bugs on a windshield, these things can cloud and cause your vision to be compromised.”

Brothers & Sisters, I invite you to join me in seeking out those things that are inhibiting us from having CLARITY OF VISION.

What could some of these things be? Unforgiveness, critical spirit, pride, doubt, disappointment, self-pity and too much busyness in our lives are some that I can think of. Can you think of others that would interfere with us having GOD’S VISION flowing in our lives?

I hear the Lord saying:

“It’s time to clean the windshield!”

Lord, may Your Living Water wash away all those things that are inhibiting our vision! We position ourselves before you for a fresh cleaning, a fresh preparation for all that is coming! May we see through Your eyes! May the Holy Spirit be our “windshield!”  

This Holy Windshield not only will give us clear vision…but we will be protected from the winds of destruction that try to beat us down! Hallelujah!!

Lord, YOU are our VISION! YOU are our GUIDE! YOU are our PROTECTION! GLORY!!

We are ready for a FRESH CLEANING! AMEN!


FOCUS!

I am not a photographer.  And most of the time I forget to take pictures of life events because I just am not thinking about taking photos.  I am enjoying the moment…but later realize I missed the opportunity to hold on to that moment through a visual record.

So!  As I have been more proactive about taking photos, I have begun to realize they are not really that good – I just point and click.  I have begun to look online to see how to take better quality iPhone photos.

There are many links that share how to improve my photo-taking ability.  I have noticed that one “help” is to pay attention to what I want to focus on.  As I frame my photo, I am to tap on the part of the photo I want to be in focus.  Then I lock it in so it will not change as I continue in my capturing the moment.  It appears that the “auto-focus” isn’t always our friend.

I couldn’t help but see the spiritual application to all of this!  Brothers and Sisters, it is so important to be conscious of what we focus on as we journey through life.  There are so many things that are in our line of vision…so many things that are happening around us.

Do we just go through life with the “auto-focus” on…letting life events choose where we place our attention?  Or do we allow God to help us fine tune our focus to those things that we need to see with clarity and precision.

Lord, may You be the one who “taps” on what needs to be in focus in my life. May I allow You to be my vision, my direction, my guide.  May the things that are trying to get my attention away from the main thing become blurry and peripheral to what You are calling me to.  May my mind and focus be fully and intently and clearly on YOU in all things!  GLORY!

For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. (Romans 8:5 ESV)

Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.  (Colossians 3:2  ESV)
