Being aligned

There is an order, God is about order and peace not confusion and instability. He didn’t

create the world in Chaotic behavior. It was very orderly. If you have stayed aligned with

God…. He has moved you in life in a flow of arrangements. If you stayed aligned with

only your thoughts and ideas your life has probably been and will stay chaotic. We need

to learn to be aligned and flow with God. He leads us to our next destination it will be

after you passed the test of the last assignment. He will give you more. You might not

understand the waiting, but do the next thing He places in front of you. God is a creator

who creates and has big ideas and purpose over your life. Allow Him to direct and create

the next thing for you. So today we cast our confusions and worries on Him and trust

where we are at right now. Stay aligned with his plan and not shove our plan in the

route of His. Then there will be a delay. What took the Isralites a 40 year journey to get

from slavery to their promised land should have took only 11 days. Most died in the

desert didn’t make it. They allowed their flesh and ideas to get in the way of God’s

alignment for them. So before you take that next move or leadership role. Remember not

everything is ours it might be meant for somebody else. It’s ok yours will be better for

you and your family and was created for you. Pray and ask God is this Your alignment

God or mine.

The Lord ’s anger was aroused that day and he swore this oath: ‘Because they have not followed me wholeheartedly, not one of those who were twenty years old or more when they came up out of Egypt will see the land I promised on oath to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob— not one except Caleb son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite and Joshua son of Nun, for they followed the Lord wholeheartedly.’ The Lord ’s anger burned against Israel and he made them wander in the wilderness forty years, until the whole generation of those who had done evil in his sight was gone.
Numbers 32:10‭-‬13 NIV

Strategy

In chess there are strategic moves. You have to think through with a calmness, focus, consistency, acceptance of where you are at the moment but still thinking about your next move. Reminds me of God he’s got strategic moves for us and we are to flow with Him. God is Not ADHD he will not have us jumping all over the place. We need to stay in the flow of what God has for us in His moves. There are many good Ministries and many good things that we could be a part of but were not meant for us. We need to stay in the direction God has us going in don’t get off track or off-centered out of His moves.

And don’t be wishing you were someplace else or with someone else. Where you are right now is God’s place for you. Live and obey and love and believe right there. God, not your marital status, defines your life. Don’t think I’m being harder on you than on the others. I give this same counsel in all the churches. 1 Corinthians 7:17 MSG

Character

When God opens our ears and eyes and we hear His Word our Spirit cannot get enough.

If we do not stay in the Word and Grow Spiritually everyday Life or the Enemy will come and yank it away from us everything we learned because we were not grounded. It was all emotional. We were on a high.

God says stay close to me daily. Get to know me see what I will do for you. Worry and fear is just that worry and fear it’s nothing I got this give it me. Worry and fear is not having faith in me.

When you do that that thing you know you shouldn’t it will come to the light. I will bring it to the light.

You cannot stay in a close relationship with me and do that thing. Repent and stop. You will not serve me in public and sin in your private.

Watch what I do. I want to build a relationship with you ALL of you. I want your Character strong so I can use you.

I will help build your Character. Dig deeper with Me. I will keep you grounded and sound. What you do on the secret will come to the light.

“The seed cast in the gravel—this is the person who hears and instantly responds with enthusiasm. But there is no soil of character, and so when the emotions wear off and some difficulty arrives, there is nothing to show for it. “The seed cast in the weeds is the person who hears the kingdom news, but weeds of worry and illusions about getting more and wanting everything under the sun strangle what was heard, and nothing comes of it. “The seed cast on good earth is the person who hears and takes in the News, and then produces a harvest beyond his wildest dreams.”
Matthew 13:20‭-‬23 MSG

His Fire

God touches you with His flame and burns the the useless off and leaves you with His Holy Presence. He has you wanting more.

Let Him change you. Let Him stretch you. There is so much more for you. Let Him teach you and heal you. Let Him throw off the religion your agenda. See His Face. See how He love you.

Do you see what we’ve got? An unshakable kingdom! And do you see how thankful we must be? Not only thankful, but brimming with worship, deeply reverent before God. For God is not an indifferent bystander. He’s actively cleaning house, torching all that needs to burn, and he won’t quit until it’s all cleansed. God himself is Fire!
Hebrews 12:28‭-‬29 MSG

This Life Matters

When down-and-outers get a break, cheer! And when the arrogant rich are brought down to size, cheer! Prosperity is as short-lived as a wildflower, so don’t ever count on it. You know that as soon as the sun rises, pouring down its scorching heat, the flower withers. Its petals wilt and, before you know it, that beautiful face is a barren stem. Well, that’s a picture of the “prosperous life.” At the very moment everyone is looking on in admiration, it fades away to nothing.
James 1:9‭-‬11 MSG

Most have been on both sides of the road here. I’ve had hardly anything and without God not even hope. When I started to have a relationship with God but not much in material including food (not knowing what we would eat for the night). He showed me how to live one day at a time with faith and hope and He provided daily. My faith was built up and I could see how He took care of me and my boys in everything. This I could boast that I had a relationship with God and He carried us through. I like to think I was like the woman with the oil and flour. I trusted God with my every move.

She said, “I swear, as surely as your God lives, I don’t have so much as a biscuit. I have a handful of flour in a jar and a little oil in a bottle; you found me scratching together just enough firewood to make a last meal for my son and me. After we eat it, we’ll die.” Elijah said to her, “Don’t worry about a thing. Go ahead and do what you’ve said. But first make a small biscuit for me and bring it back here. Then go ahead and make a meal from what’s left for you and your son. This is the word of the God of Israel: ‘The jar of flour will not run out and the bottle of oil will not become empty before God sends rain on the land and ends this drought.’” And she went right off and did it, did just as Elijah asked. And it turned out as he said—daily food for her and her family. The jar of meal didn’t run out and the bottle of oil didn’t become empty: God ’s promise fulfilled to the letter, exactly as Elijah had delivered it!
1 Kings 17:12‭-‬16 MSG

I have had money, plenty of food and places to live. God showed me if I did not place Him first and I placed the material first. The consequences were being lonely in my Spirit and the joy in my heart was no longer there. Without God and His Spirit living inside you all the money in the world will not make you happy.

In the end of our life we our layed down in our grave and become dust. We can’t take a thing with us not even clothes. I want my heart to have been full of a joy and have a forgiveness and love for others. What did we do when we were poor with little money? How did we love others and trust God. What did I do with the money I was blessed with? Did I tithe, give to a good cause? Did I just blow it or did I listen to God what to do with it?

It’s ok to have nice things.. it is… God loves to bless us but He wants us to be smart with what we are blessed with. To listen to Him and put Him first. Like Joseph did. He was in prison with nothing but never gave up and counted all his blessings. He forgave his brothers for selling him and trusted God. Look what happened to him. Pharoah went to get him out of prison because He heard Joseph told what a dream meant to the cup bearer. Joseph could have sat in prison and sulked and never did anything God told him to do, but he did his best even in prison and Gods plans for Joseph He told him about when he was a boy came to the surface. See if God told you something you better believe it’s going to happen, but sometimes you have to go through the drought so He can train you for what He has for you. Better pass the test like Joseph did are He will keep testing you until you do.

Then Pharaoh said to his officials, “Isn’t this the man we need? Are we going to find anyone else who has God’s spirit in him like this?” So Pharaoh said to Joseph, “You’re the man for us. God has given you the inside story—no one is as qualified as you in experience and wisdom. From now on, you’re in charge of my affairs; all my people will report to you. Only as king will I be over you.” So Pharaoh commissioned Joseph: “I’m putting you in charge of the entire country of Egypt.” Then Pharaoh removed his signet ring from his finger and slipped it on Joseph’s hand. He outfitted him in robes of the best linen and put a gold chain around his neck. He put the second-in-command chariot at his disposal, and as he rode people shouted “Bravo!” Joseph was in charge of the entire country of Egypt. Joseph had two sons born to him before the years of famine came. Asenath, daughter of Potiphera the priest of On, was their mother. Joseph named the firstborn Manasseh (Forget), saying, “God made me forget all my hardships and my parental home.” He named his second son Ephraim (Double Prosperity), saying, “God has prospered me in the land of my sorrow.”
Genesis 41:38‭-‬43‭, ‬51

Did we make a life where we were full of Jesus and people knew us to be kind and have a Jesus love? When we take our last breath and close our eyes we will be in Heaven beautiful heaven where we have others who are already there to meet us. Jesus will be waiting. We will see our glorious God. What we do on this earth does matter. What we do with the money God blessed us with does matter. What we do with the time does matter.

“Yes, I’m on my way! I’ll be there soon! I’m bringing my payroll with me. I’ll pay all people in full for their life’s work. I’m A to Z, the First and the Final, Beginning and Conclusion. “How blessed are those who wash their robes! The Tree of Life is theirs for good, and they’ll walk through the gates to the City. But outside for good are the filthy curs: sorcerers, fornicators, murderers, idolaters—all who love and live lies. Revelation 22:12‭-‬15

Experiencing life in the Raw

I thought when I first decided to clean up my life and try something different that it would be boring but I just knew I couldn’t go on the same self destruction path anymore.

I thought how am I going to get through a day without a mask? How do I just be in the raw? The first time I had feelings I wanted to get the mask but I instead took it in and breathed that moment and felt every bit of pain and God took me through it. The first time I felt joy without my mask God helped me through it.

When you live your whole life covering feelings you don’t know how to experience life in the moment its like being a baby and needing a pacifier.

Today I experience life with God in the raw. He says look at the sunrise I made you this morning. Feel the wind through your body. I want You to feel Me live in you. Open my Word up I wrote for you get to know Me.

One day at a time. One moment at a time. I became one with God. He lives in me. He cleaned me up and made me new. Its not boring. Its marvelous, freeing. He makes me brave and want to try new things. He pulled me out of the mud and brushed me off. Then He washed me off.

He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along.
Psalms 40:2

You can start right now. Just right now. You don’t have to clean up. God says let me do that for you. Let go and let God do that for you.

Reach for Him and say Jesus I’m tired of doing this thing called life on my own. Come and stay in my heart and brush the dirt off me and wash me. I can’t clean myself up by myself but Im going to trust the process.

Today I will live just in today but now with you I walk. I can’t lay the mask down I use to hide behind. Today will you show me how.Now be aware of the moment your in and watch what He shows you.

Remember It is God who formed you and created you in your mothers womb. Allow Him to do it again. Just trust the Process. What the world tore apart. He will form and knit you together again.

And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart.
Ezekiel 36:26

He Wants to Bless You

Jesus walked to the Cross and never said a word He could have defended Himself but He did not for me and for you so that we could. So that we could open our mouths and tell of His truth of His love. He died a bloody, horrible and painful death so that we could live a glorious life with Him With God all the time. The curtain was torn so there was no separation anymore. He died on that Cross so I could carry Holy Spirit have salvation, health, a love beyond understanding, peace and also an abundance of knowledge and wisdom so I can speak to others about His love for them.

I get to carry an authority with me a boldness with Holy Spirit. He is my daddy so He also loves me and can be very proud of me and He knows my heart and my desires and He loves to bless my socks off with spiritual gifts and also material things. He shows me and places people and things in front of me.

You know I’ve been looking for a beach house for many years and 3 years ago we tried to get one and He said not yet and 3 years to the week ( 3 means complete) God said now and literally placed one in front of us and beyond unbelievable price and double the size because He knew we would need that for the family that has grown and He said not only that I’m also giving you a Golf cart with this house. See with God when He gives He gives big! I live in expectation I do not place His love for me in a box.

“And so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened. “You fathers—if your children ask for a fish, do you give them a snake instead? Or if they ask for an egg, do you give them a scorpion? Of course not! So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him.”
Luke 11:9‭-‬13

I saw my first piece of sea glass a week ago and I became addicted to finding them. They are so pretty. I found a lot of brown, white frosted and green but I really wanted a blue one. I was walking by the Ocean and asked God to please show me a blue one. I looked down and there it was a beautiful frosted blue one. Complete square and gorgeous. See God was giving me a lot of manna with the brown pieces and as soon as I asked He showed me some of that milk and honey. A beautiful blue one! He loves me so much and He knew I was needing some extra love that morning.

He wants you to ask Him. Ask Him for milk and honey for Holy Spirit for spiritual gifts. He loves you so much. When He sees how you honor, love and worship Him He wants to bless you. You are His child. Talk to Him get in His Word. He wants you to be bursting at the seams with everything He gives you.

He was oppressed and treated harshly, yet he never said a word. He was led like a lamb to the slaughter. And as a sheep is silent before the shearers, he did not open his mouth. Unjustly condemned, he was led away. No one cared that he died without descendants, that his life was cut short in midstream. But he was struck down for the rebellion of my people. He had done no wrong and had never deceived anyone. But he was buried like a criminal; he was put in a rich man’s grave. But it was the Lord ’s good plan to crush him and cause him grief. Yet when his life is made an offering for sin, he will have many descendants. He will enjoy a long life, and the Lord ’s good plan will prosper in his hands. When he sees all that is accomplished by his anguish, he will be satisfied. And because of his experience, my righteous servant will make it possible for many to be counted righteous, for he will bear all their sins. I will give him the honors of a victorious soldier, because he exposed himself to death. He was counted among the rebels. He bore the sins of many and interceded for rebels.
Isaiah 53:7‭-‬12

“Sing, O childless woman, you who have never given birth! Break into loud and joyful song, O Jerusalem, you who have never been in labor. For the desolate woman now has more children than the woman who lives with her husband,” says the Lord . “Enlarge your house; build an addition. Spread out your home, and spare no expense! For you will soon be bursting at the seams. Your descendants will occupy other nations and resettle the ruined cities. “Fear not; you will no longer live in shame. Don’t be afraid; there is no more disgrace for you. You will no longer remember the shame of your youth and the sorrows of widowhood. For your Creator will be your husband; the Lord of Heaven’s Armies is his name! He is your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel, the God of all the earth.
Isaiah 54:1‭-‬5 NLT
