Don’t Miss Out!

September 27, 2016

If we don’t VALUE the kingdom of heaven ….guess what?

Matthew 13: 12 ” For whoever has, to him more will be given, and he will have abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him.”

DON’T BE THAT GUY…..PRESS IN! HE FREELY GIVES…..

Romans 8:32   “He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?”

A THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

September 22, 2016

James 1:2 “My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials. knowing the the testing of your faith produces patience.

We’ve most likely read this dozens of times and marveled at how James could ask us to count trials a “joyful” thing. I have always read that and said to myself “that’s deep, and I’m not even close to that level of maturity” and ha ha….I still say that! But I found something interesting this morning as I read this. I stopped and looked up the word “patience” in the Greek (which the new testament was translated from) It is the word “hupomone” which means “an abiding under”! Wow!! that totally changed it for me!!

Follow this thought…. our trials drive us to “abide under” . To run to God and seek Him out in a closer and deeper way. In light of that….trials produce really good fruit. As we continue to follow James line of thought….. 1:4 “But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing!”

I don’t know about you…..but I would love to be made complete and lack nothing in the sight of God. Am I asking for trials?? NOOO!!! But…I know they will come to me and to all of us. We are meant to grow to maturity as human beings and as spiritual beings….the children of God.

James, as our older brother in Christ and a man approved of God has given us some pretty awesome wisdom. Actually if you follow his next thought he encourages us to ask for wisdom from God in faith….. an interesting thought to follow what he just said. I think when we get into trials….we NEED God’s wisdom to understand and navigate them in a way that pleases God.

At any rate…..trials will come…..to take James advice and at least try to “count it all joy” looking past the immediate trial and seeing a beautiful fruit that will be gained if we do it God’s way will help us in this life. Patience and endurance….beautiful fruit in God’s eyes. May God help us to “abide under” Him at all times, but especially as we traverse difficult times. Amen!

Recent Dream 2016

I hope you will be open to this dream I believe to be totally from the Lord. At any rate….I pray you will read it and consider.

End Time Prophesy

First I must apologize for neglecting this site.  God had me cloistered off and redirecting my focus back to what is going on now…..

Dream  9/20/2016

I was on a big ship that looked something like the queen Mary/ Titanic,  but had been modernized and was much larger.  More like a floating city with Disneyland qualities to it.  Everyone was running around happy and entertained like a summer vacation.   Yet something happened to the ship and somehow me and a few others that were hanging with me overheard the crew of the ship telling the truth about it.  The ship was damaged and would be belly-up in only an hour.  There was no way to fix it.  But they were not telling the people.  I could see a few “important people” that were told getting off the ship in smaller boats.

We were shocked and I said out loud…

MORE AND MORE

September 3, 2016

MORE AND MORE

I get to know you
More and more
As I walk through time
Jesus is my open door

So many things
I thought I understood
But under clouds of darkness
My thinking hard as wood

So much more
O, Lord open up
The eyes of my understanding
Fill again my empty cup

So close, so near
I feel you in my heart
Whisper away my fears
Your words hit every mark

Open, open
O, God of the universe
The kingdom of heaven
Is the place of my new birth

I feel Your love arising
Lighting up my mind
Renewing every part of me
Didn’t know I was so blind

Our light is darkness
Compared to your infinite shine
And oh great God of the universe
How can you be so kind?

Kind and good and generous
To give us all we’ve got
Share with us your character
Hide your secret plot

Hidden treasures everywhere
If we would only look
Hidden treasures come alive
Inside your very book

Off the page and on the stage
Kingdom of God on earth
Now’s the time to enter in
And find out what you’re worth

Oh the price, the price He paid
He laid it on the line
Holding nothing back for us
He passed the test of all time

No love greater will ever be
Than what Jesus did for us
For now and all eternity
He gave His life for us

More and more and more, my Lord
Pour it out on me
The presence of the Trinity
That is our destiny!
