AWAKEN

July 20, 2016

It’s time to prepare beloved of God. It’s time to prepare yourselves for the days ahead. It’s time to train your spirit, soul, and body to be surrendered to God. It’s time to take a deeper step into obedience in everyday life. It’s time to be led by the Holy Spirit in all things. It’s time to wake up and say to the Lord….”what do you want me to do today” or get quiet and listen to see what He will say to you.

Romans 8:14 “ For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.”

It’s time to be spirit ruled and not flesh ruled.

Romans 8:13, “ For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.”

It’s time to surrender all and return to our first love, beloved remnant of God. It’s time to fast and pray and get so close to Jesus that He once again becomes our all in all as He was in the beginning.

Revelation 2:4-7 “Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent. But this you have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.”’

It’s a painful journey, if you are like me. I thought I was fine! Then the Lord said to me “You have an idol”. I was floored! “What!! I love you Lord…how could I have an idol?” He quickly said….”You have your children as an idol in your heart.” As soon as He said it, I knew. I had been mourning a tragedy that happened to my daughter. It occupied my thoughts night and day! And I was truly unaware of how much of my thought life was about that. I quickly surrendered it to the Lord and began a journey to find out what else I was blind to! And He graciously has taken my hand and is leading me into a place back to my first love and works and preparing me for beyond.

If you have had a calling on your life or suspect you do. Do not give up hope just because the country is falling apart and the hour is late. Dust off your hopes that God is great enough to complete that which He began in you long ago….or maybe recently for some.

Phillipians 1:6 “ being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ;”

I will leave you with this poem. Blessings! Have a wonderful day!

AWAKEN THE SEEKER

Deeper and deeper and deeper we go

So many mysteries

We must continue to grow

Digging beneath what seems to be real

We search out to discover

What’s under the seal

If life ever seems to stagnate and plateau

Go back to the mystery

Think of all you don’t know

There’s a joy in the seeking, a hunger in our souls

We are made to keep drinking

To fill up that hole

Let not monotony darken your heart

There’s a mystery awaiting

You just have to start

Never too old, never too late

To awaken the seeker

To finish God’s mandate

Just A Thought About Prepping

February 24, 2016

Are you a prepper? Know any preppers? Survivalist? While it’s good to have emergency supplies and preperations….it’s completely futile to do it without Jesus Christ. Without getting things right with God and being strong spiritually FIRST….it’s not gonna work. I don’t care how prepared we may think we are. Want proof from scripture?

Check this out:

Revelations 6:15 And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, 16 and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! 17 For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?”

If you have Jesus…..you have the most important thing!! Many arrogantly think they are “prepped” for the end time events, come what may. Without Christ there is no hope. Jesus is the way the truth and the life. In this age and in the one to come. May our priorities be first of all …..spiritual! Psalm 91:1 ” He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High God, shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty” Now that is the place to be. May it be so for us all Lord Jesus! Get us ready!!

Matthew 6:33 But seek FIRST the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

2 Peter 3:13 “Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.”

We are honored to be alive in this hour. With Jesus by our side, we can live through this most difficult hour before us. And hopefully you all know Jesus as your Lord and Savior…so in truth heaven is our home and our citizenship is there. If you are not sure…. Romans 10:13 For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Humble yourselves before Him, repent of your sins, receive a completely clean slate and forgiveness of all your past and stay in communication with Jesus through prayer, and reading your Bible. You are called and chosen. John 15:16 “You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.” Please don’t delay getting serious with God. You know not what a day may hold and He loves you. You are not seeing this by accident. Isaiah 55:6 “Seek the Lord while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near.”

Much love, Jean

A THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

January 4, 2016

Wishing you all a faith filled and Happy New Year!! I read this today and wanted to share it. Oh how much I needed to hear this….maybe you too!

Excerpt from the Streams in the Desert Devotional for today.

“The beginning of anxiety is the end of faith, and the beginning of true faith is the end of anxiety – George Mueller

You will never learn faith in comfortable surroundings. God gives us the promises in a quiet hour; God seals our covenants with great and gracious words, then He steps back and waits to see how much we believe; then He lets the tempter come, and the test seems to contradict all that He has spoken. It is then that faith wins its crown. That is the time to look up through the storm, and among the trembling, frightened seamen cry, “I believe God that it shall be even as it was told me.”

Believe and trust; through stars and suns,
Through life and death, through soul and sense,
His wise, paternal purpose runs;
The darkenss of His Providence
Is starlit with Divine intents”

Hope you have a great day! You are loved!

As I was re-reading the book of Esther this morning, I was thinking about how God turned the tides on the enemies of Israel. It is so amazing that the whole nation of Jews fasted and prayed for three days for God to deliver them.

God answered mightily by destroying the spirit of Haman in the land and restored them and blessed them.

I thought sadly about the American church. Of the general state of disunity and dysfunction it is in. Never in my life have I seen so many churches and pastors following a course of self absorbed ambition and a quest for natural success instead of seeking to please God. I’ve even encountered some blinded pastors that would lie, manipulate and destroy other believers just to keep their “kingdom” intact. It has grieved me to the core of my being.

There are “Hamans” in the court of the King of kings and there are “Hamans” in the world coming against the body of Christ from all sides. In God’s economy we are instructed to bless our enemies and not to curse them, which is vital. BUT we are given the blessing of coming before Christ and asking Him to deliver us from evil. I think that we can all agree….evil is coming against good in our land.

Can we as the body of Christ begin to pray and fast (if you are able) and to ask God to “deliver us from evil”? We all see it daily. But very few leaders are standing up and leading the charge to come against the evil of our day. While there are a few (and if you know them count your blessings and keep supporting them)….the voice of outcry from the church has been spotty and scattered. It takes courage…and risk…and a willingness to serve the purposes of God and not man …we all need to be involved in it.

There is no answer but God, America. There is no deliverer but Christ. We need to pray that God would first deliver the church from selfish ambitions, personally and corporately. Judgement begins in the house of God. And secondly, that He would deliver us from the Hamans of this land that want to destroy God’s people.

If you agree with this, I pray that you would pass it on and direct your prayers towards this goal.

“Deliver us from evil, Lord Jesus. Grant a wave of repentance in the churches and cleanse us from all that is not pleasing to You. Give us unity of purpose as we stand together for our nation. Give us eyes to see clearly and courage to stand up for righteousness sake. Fill us with love and gratitude for all You have given us. Give us bravery to stand against the evil tide as we wait for Your deliverance. Give us joy in the midst of the battle and love for all of our enemies. You tell us to hate what is evil…..to be angry and sin not. Help us to do that Lord and not to get bitter at those perpetrating this evil. Only You, oh Lord, can deliver us. But You are well able. Grant us hope and courage, oh Lord, and to not be ashamed of You. Give us the boldness to speak up when it is necessary and to know that You see us and rejoice when we proclaim Your Son and Your truth. Pour out revival on our land and have mercy on us, Lord.” Amen

Courage

March 2, 2014

What is courage?

What shall we say?

Is it loud and boisterous?

Not always the case

 

Is it mental assent?

Does it come from the heart?

A step into danger 

Having counted the cost?

 

Take a look at our Saviour

He knew early on

That His people would betray Him

And yet He walked on

 

He knew fully well

What the cross would entail

The physical brutality

The pain of the nails

 

He knew that His friends

Would cower away

Only John and some ladies

At the cross would stay

 

What example for us

The truth He displays

His eyes were wide open 

To the price He would pay

 

Yet still, He walked on

It was  love in His heart

He knew what He came for

From this purpose did not depart

 

So it is, we must follow

Choices to be made

When the going gets tough

Is it Truth we’ll betray?

 

To go with the crowd

To avoid suffering

Is acceptance our god?

Or to Truth will we cling?

 

These choices are coming

Have been all along

The crossroads are clear

To whom you belong

 

No one can answer

This question for you

No one will stand 

Before God with you too

 

So make up your mind

Of this thing be sure

Will you walk with the Lord

And with courage endure….

Ostrich Syndrome

Sleeping, sleeping

Sleeping eyes

Have been closed

By all the lies

 

All is well

False prophets say

There is no hell

So jump and play

 

A nation’s pride

Says…”not to us”

We’re above it all

So what’s the fuss?

 

Meanwhile 

Traps and nets are laid

Media ignores 

Keeps truth in the shade

 

Even those 

Who are aware

Look away

They just don’t care

 

Inconvenient

Yes, it’s true

But it will affect

Me and you

 

The heart must be readied

For what’s ahead

So courage can grow

No fear, no dread

 

It must be embraced

So steadfastness grows

Not like deer in the headlights

But one who knows

 

Awake, awake

It’s not so bad

Face the future with courage

So your heart can be glad

 

Whatever may come

Have your faith in place

Like the good Book says

Let’s finish this race

 

Eyes on the promises

Throughout all time

God will be with us

Help us to shine

 

See what is negative

Don’t ignore the truth

Be informed

So you’ll make the right move

 

It’s time to be grown-ups

Get our head out of the sand

Look up and know

That God’s got your hand
