find me in the river

I want and need to rise above all my bad habits. I need to break free from this  self-destructive cycle that I have allowed in my life. Like Paul said "My spirit is willing but my flesh is weak".

I want to experience God on a new level, I want to surrender my all - holding nothing back from God. I want to be ashamed of nothing.  I want to be able to face God with a clear conscience.
So today, I officially begin this journey. For the next 21 days I have committed to rewrite negative feelings and thoughts and ideas - addressing my thinking towards permanent progress in any area and stopping the cycle of shame and defeat.  I have had enough. I mean business and I know God is saying... You go girl!  With feverent prayers and petitions I will move forward. I will call unto my God who hears me when I call.  I know it is His desire for me to be fulfilled, to be a conquerer, to be more. What are your cravings? Anything you would like to put under God's control? Alcohol Sex Int…

I love You

If I was a painter, I would use the sky as my canvas so that the whole world would see how much I love You. I would use all the colours on my palette to be creative and daring to find more shades to describe how much You mean to me. I would paint a picture that would say a thousand words and I will sign it…’with love’

If I was a comedian I would amuse You with jokes and quotes. I would make You laugh until Your stomach hurts. I would playfully humor and entertain You.

If I was a poet I would charm You with words pleasingly arrayed that would make sense of the feelings that I cannot put to words.

If I was a sculptor, I would stun You with a piece of art that would show You how much I appreciate everything you have ever done for me.

But I am not a painter, a poet nor a comedian. I am just me. I don’t know how 2 express my love for You in fancy ways or with colourful words. I just don’t know.

But I know this… I love You with all my heart.

I'm Weak, But still Anointed

"And I am weak today, though anointed king;" (2 Samuel 3:39)

This was spoken from the mouth of King David following the cruel battles of the house of Saul and the house of David. David was exhausted physically, mentally, and spiritually from all that had transpired since his inauguration as King. Brothers were killing brothers, and life was throwing curve balls at David. He never even got to enjoy his first few days as King. 
However, here is the point I wish to make to those of you who know God has anointed you for a particular assignment. Being weak doesn’t mean your anointing is. This is one of the revelations we need to receive as God’s children that we don’t operate out of the weak identity of the flesh. What makes us powerful is the Spirit of God in us and the anointing upon us. It is the anointing that will make up for your fleshly weakness. 
Jesus said this to the Apostle Paul, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my strength is made perfect in weakness." How many …

five little stones

On my way to the office one morning, I heard this song on the radio and immediately fell in love with the lyrics because it captures a peace of my own heart:... It never was about the oil dripping from my head I never did dream beyond the pastures I could tend It was never about the praise, not about the street parade I didn't really need a crowd when Goliath fell down I never meant to woo a king with simple shepherd songs Or hide away inside a cave, safe from danger's arms I never meant to wear a crown or try to bring armies down It never was about me and who I hoped to be Five little stones or a royal robe Shepherd or king doesn't mean a thing 'Cause at the end of the day I want to hear people say: My heart looks like Your heart! [Your heart from Chris Tomlin]

Connected to the Vine

I want to get to the place
Where I can meet with my Saviour
face to face
I need to connect with my Source
Who will aid me to withstand all evil force
that’s keeping me from entering the bridal chamber
It is in Him that a find peace in the midst of all the danger
He delivers me from all evil
Surrounds me with a legion of angels
Blesses me with His presence
Anoints me with His oil
and aligns me with His truth
He is the Great I Am!

Tearing down barriers

...And now a personal but most urgent matter; I write in the gentle but firm spirit of Christ. I hear that I’m being painted as cringing and wishy-washy when I’m with you, but harsh and demanding when at a safe distance writing letters. Please don’t force me to take a hard line when I’m present with you. Don’t think that I’ll hesitate a single minute to stand up to those who say I’m an unprincipled opportunist. Then they’ll have to eat their words.

The world is unprincipled. It’s dog-eat-dog out there! The world doesn’t fight fair. But we don’t live or fight our battles that way—never have and never will. The tools of our trade aren’t for marketing or manipulation, but they are for demolishing that entire massively corrupt culture. We use our powerful God-tools for smashing warped philosophies, tearing down barriers erected against the truth of God, fitting every loose thought and emotion and impulse into the structure of life shaped by Christ. Our tools are ready at hand for cleari…

His Sovereignty

He was supreme in the beginning and—leading the resurrection parade—He is supreme in the end. From beginning to end He’s there, towering far above everything, everyone. So spacious is He, so roomy, that everything of God finds its proper place in Him without crowding. Not only that, but all the broken and dislocated pieces of the universe; people and things, animals and elements —get properly fixed and fit together in vibrant harmonies, all because of His death, His blood that poured down from the cross. Colossians 1:19-29 [MSG]

My Commanding Officer

My Commanding Officer I am in the army of God.
Jesus Christ is my Commanding Officer.
The Holy Bible is my code of conduct.
Prayer are my weapons of warfare.
I have been taught by the Holy Spirit, trained by experience, tried by adversity and tested by fire.

I am a volunteer in this army.
I am enlisted for eternity.
I will either retire in this army at the rapture or die in this army.
But I will not get out, sell out, be talked out, or pushed out. I am faithful, reliable, capable and dependable.

I am not a wimp.  I am in place saluting my King. Obeying His orders, praising His Name and training up His disciples. No one has to send me flowers, gifts, food, cards, candy or give me handouts. I do not need to be cuddled, cradled, cared for or catered to.  I cannot have my feelings hurt bad enough to turn me around.  I  cannot be discouraged enough to turn me aside. I cannot lose enough to cause me to quit.

I am more than a conqueror. I will always triumph. I can do all things through Ch…

Elijah

One of the most important things the Lord has ever spoken to me is taken from a passage of Scripture involving Elijah the prophet. Once I saw what it was really saying, it linked many other truths together and made a big impact on my life. This is so simple that once you see it, you’re going to wonder how you never saw it before. Here’s what it says in 1 Kings 17:2-4: And the word of the Lord came unto him, saying, [3] Get thee hence, and turn thee eastward, and hide thyself by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan. [4] And it shall be, that thou shalt drink of the brook; and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there. Elijah’s provision wasn’t where he was; it was where God told him to go! This is profound! Some of you have an impression from God to do something. Maybe you’re supposed to start a new business, make a job change, move to another town, go to Bible college, speak to a person, etc. You want to do it, but you’re holding back because the provision isn’t there yet. Yo…

The power of HOPE

Hope is second only to love in the Christian life (1 Cor. 13:13). Many believers might disagree with that, especially when you tell them hope involves imagination. But imagination dictates how your life goes, and if you're ever going to receive what God has for you, you'll need to understand that hope is a positive imagination. When you do, you'll be able to reject a negative imagination, which becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy of failure in your life. Learn how to operate in a positive imagination today, and you'll know the true power of hope!

What Is Hope?
The anticipation, or the constant expectation, of good is how most people define hope. But the Bible says in Romans 8:24 that hope is for that which is not seen. How can you see something that isn't there? The answer may surprise you.

Hope Paints A Picture
A large percentage of what you experience in your life is a result of what is seen on the inside of your heart. Did you know that the Bible says you can ch…
