My prayer for you, dear family & friends, is that in this new year you will experience the goodness of the Lord in greater ways and you will receive His abundance as you journey the paths HE has put before you! BLESSINGS & LOVE!!
A NEW SEASON
The Lord keeps reminding me that I/we are in a new season in His Kingdom.
I have been trying to go through my clothes and donate those that do not need to go with me in this new spiritual season of ministry and life.
A few days ago I felt a strong call to get my desk and file cabinets in order (I have one 4 drawer and one 2 drawer). Oh, the precious nuggets I am finding – lost and hidden in all of the miscellaneous “stuff.”
How many precious things of the Lord are lost and hidden among all of the things we felt needed to be held onto?
I feel that the Lord is calling me to sift through a lot of things of the past because I need to make room for all of the things He is bringing into my life NOW!! PRAISE GOD!!
I find myself becoming excited as I organize past sermons, devotions, teachings, prophetic words, prayers, and ministry events that the Lord used me to minister in for His glory and for the equipping of His Church! I am excited because as I am doing this I KNOW that I am making room for what is coming!!
Brothers & Sisters! Do you have room in your life for the NEW that the Lord wants to bring you? Is it time for you to do an inventory – physical and spiritual – and CLEAN OUT those things that will hold you back from receiving God’s abundance?
LORD!! Help us to weed out all of those things that clutter up our lives to the point that we can’t move quickly and freely with You into our future. Help us to prune our lives of “dead things” that do not promote NEW LIFE! Help us to speak LIFE to others and also to ourselves!
LORD!! You are the most precious thing in our lives!! May we not let anything take YOUR place!! May every decision we make come from embracing YOUR heart, YOUR perspective, YOUR love, and YOUR will!!
LORD!! We are ready to go forward with You!
Leaving old things behind…
“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” Isaiah 43:18-19 NIV
…for God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.
(1 Samuel 16:7)
We must be careful to not take people and circumstances at “face value”. What we see with our fleshly eyes is not necessarily what the LORD sees!
LORD, may we have Your eyes and Your Vision that we may see things as they really are.
May You continue to improve my Vision, Lord!! May You align my vision to YOUR Vision. I not only want to HEAR You, but I want to SEE with Your eyes! I want to FEEL what You feel! I want to SPEAK Your Word! Mold and shape me, Lord, into a vessel that is filled to overflowing with Your LOVE!! In the mighty name of Jesus I pray. AMEN!
As I’m sitting at the gate in Dallas/Ft. Worth airport, my thoughts go to all that has taken place over the last 5 days. I always feel a revival of my spirit at the Aldersgate Renewal Ministries Conferences. I am physically tired – but my spirit is full!
I am so thankful for being a part of the ministry that has taken place. It is a joy to serve the Lord and serve others. My heart is full!
I am so humbled to have been able to participate in Prayer Teams, Prophetic Prayer Team, Coordinate the Word Gifts Team, lead an adult Equipping Session on the power of our words, and lead a Youth Equipping Session on prophecy.
But also the unscheduled moments of praying with people that the Lord connected me with. Getting to know Brothers and Sisters from near and far and sharing our hearts for the Lord. Such a blessing!
And those overwhelming moments of WORSHIP! Oh my! I am so thankful to have a place to worship with all my heart and soul. The worship team was anointed and powerful. Thank you Jonathan C Dow for your leadership! It is always a joy to join you in worship of our amazing God!
Thank you Christen Ball for the Song of the Lord that flows through you with such power! My spirit leaps as I listen to the Holy Spirit sing to me through you.
The Keynote Speakers spoke into my life! I walk away with spiritual “food” that will challenge me and ignite me in the next phase of my journey.
And lastly, I want to thank and honor Mark Barrow, the Executive Director of Aldersgate Renewal Ministries. God clothes you with gentleness, humility, love, power, and authority. I am so blessed to be in ministry with you and to name you as my Brother and Friend! Onward & Upward!!
I can’t begin to share all that has taken place…but I did want to share some of it with you, dear friends. Thank you to all of those that have held me up in prayer. You know who you are!!
Next year the Conference will be in Peoria, Illinois. I would encourage you to pray about joining me and experiencing what God has planned for YOU!!❤️
