Wearing the Right Garment

You know I got sick of my complaining spirit and the Holy Spirit helped me take it off. Then I put on the joy spirit - oh! it's fur and silk lined with a warm filling. Ooo la la! I'm going to rejoice in each moment. Especially this one!

Words

A lot of things we go through is because people who say they love us, don't believe God has called us to do and act the way we are. They speak against us and those words hurt us just because they are said, whether we hear them or not. Words are powerful whomever says them but especially a believer in Jesus Christ. When good words are spoken about us anywhere, it is uplifting even if we don't hear them. When these negative family and friends see the effect of their words on us, not knowing that's what is happening, they conclude that we are rebellious, of on a tangent or having a nervous breakdown. Be careful what you say to people. It can hurt them. Be care what you say about someone. It can hurt them, even if they don't hear you. I may have shared in my blogs times when God tells me to bind up words some are saying about me. He lets me know that some people somewhere are saying negative things about me or about the call on my life or about His work in me and I am to bind up those words in Jesus' name and cast them out of this world. Something my late dad used to say comes to mind when someone in the family seemed to be making a wrong decision and I would ask him what he thought. He would say, "Well, I don't want to oppose it because in doing so I might be fighting God" So be careful people and let the Holy Spirit lead you.

Out for a Walk - Quick!

When we talked last I was 56 years old. Imagine. I'm now 58.
Nice to talk to you again. I went out for a walk. Ahhhh! Quickly before I could prepare too much, I headed out to Lake Newport. if you don't do it quick, tentacles of doubt and suckers of distraction take hold and you sit back down in your comfort zone and wish. So I'm out here before 9 a.m. with my first cuppa, reading the Word and writing. It must be 60 degrees in mid-July in the N.E., USA and a steady breeze is blowing. Only I and an Indian couple are out here. He in his 'sahib' turban and her in her Indian tunic & pants. We share a bench because if I had known the red water bottle here was hers and not a forgotten gem I would have sat elsewhere. The Sahiba's I guess, since that's the name on it. Or that's her first name and they have a houseful of people, so she has to identify her own. If I had known we would have had no reason to look into each others eyes and smile, besides the "Hello" we made on the way. So I'm glad God made sure I sat here. I bet he is a doctor. I bet they have oodles of money and very successful children. The stories we make up:) Oh the lake. Beautiful.

God put me through a study today of receiving “pressed down, shaken together and running over …men pouring things into my bosom”. Look! If you want to Give – and you do, and you want to Give as Christ leads – and you do, then you better be ready to receive. Because here it comes. Luke 6 38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. As many of you know God has had me on this faith walk in which He told me to quit my job and walk on through life trusting Him to provide everything for me. He has. Of course Satan has been messin' with me and I have no home, car, money...but God is blessing me abundantly with everything I need and there is always somewhere for me to live and definitely food to eat. The walk and provisions come with Him putting me places where I am a blessing...you know like Elijah and the widow of Zarephath scenario. Along the way here lately, more and more and more people are giving me things. I was getting uncomfortable, but Father said I'd better get used to it. Since I had agreed to give up my life and do what He said do and therefore lost everything (doesn't happen to every believer), I'd better get very comfortable with receiving a lot of stuff 'Man' was going to (and is) pouring into my bosom. Get ready if you have allowed yourself to be led into the wilderness. Get ready if you have given up your life to follow Christ. Get ready. Heaven is open over your head and people are going to start pouring things into you bosom (your life). Get ready!

Did God Send You To The Wilderness?

LOL. I'm trying out book titles. Maybe I'm wrong, but I think maybe I should say something more exciting than Faith Journey Now. Even though a faith journey it has been. Perhaps I should think of the audience the Lord God has in store for me. Perhaps I should consider the book signings I will do and who would invite me to speak at them. What title would cause that to be. You can see more about my journey at my blog, The title above says more about how I really feel about this faith journey. Especially, as I still hang on and much of what the Lord said would happened hasn't. The most important thing is to 'fix your eyes upon Jesus' - and you better believe you can see him and are looking at Him. You will loose your grip, else.
