Hello Lovies,

It's been a while.

It hasn't been because there's been nothing to say. I have been writing. ;-)

The time wasn't right.

But now... the time is at hand.

There has been a lot of #change going on in the last several months for everyone, myself included.

This season of writings will be encouraging you through difficulties. We are in a windy season... and navigating can get treacherous.

Just remember: There is #HOPE.

Our #God walks on water... and subdues it when He Speaks.

And my dear siblings in Christ, He Speaks to us today. Hallelujah!

Those that say the Holy Spirit is no longer active obviously have not met Him, and are not 'In Him’. They are essentially calling #Jesus a liar (John 14:15-17). Lord, have mercy on them, for they are limited.

So Listen UP! Keep your ears attuned to his soft voice. Go to Him every day and tell Him what's going on. Start in the morning, before you get out of bed. Ask Him for the things that you need Him to intervene in. Ask Him for His WILL... in everything.

The Lord cannot do for you... intercede for you... if you aren’t submitting your issues to Him.

You'd be amazed at how the weight... it feels... like it lifts off of your shoulders... because you have given over... your burdens to Him.

(We carry these burdens inside... and they eat at us like a slow growing bitter cancer. Before we know it, we are ‘sick.’ (could be mental, emotional, physical sickness). (Matt 6:25-34)

... God DESIRES to answer your prayers (what is best for you). He wants you whole, complete... IN Him. But He doesn’t force himself on you... he invites 24/7. He gave us a direct communication line... His gift to us... our Advocate... The Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit will teach you and guide you all things, IF you you will let Him (John 14:26, 1 John 2:1, John 16:7, Acts 2:33, Romans 8:16, Acts 4:31, John 14:26, 1 Cor 2:9-10). In our flesh, we are limited by our own will and thinking. There is so MUCH MORE... In Him! :-) Hallelujah!

Here is a marinating thought: how can you ever really know if God answers a prayer, if in fact you've never prayed for anything faithfully... consistently? Pray as often as you can. It’s a beautiful communion (1 Thess 5:17).

Ask Him to give you a thriving prayer life/relationship with Him. Pray for others. Pray for yourself.

I guarantee you communicating with our God will be the best part of your day. Every single day.

Dear Heavenly Father, what a JOY it is to be called your precious daughter. No matter the disaster on earth, Father, I know You redeem all You allow. I see that we are nowhere near 2 Chron 7:14... nevertheless I see the vessel through which it will come. I ask that Peace and Justice roll like a river in our mighty land... and to the ends of the earth. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. May we learn to love one another, especially in our differences. May we truly come to know what the word 'unity' means. In Jesus’ Name I pray and plead, Amen.

In Christ,
