I want to share something that has been on my heart for several decades now and I am sharing it in order that it might help many love the people within their churches, groups and in the community by understanding an important issue. One of the hardest things I have ever experienced in my Christian life in the Christian community is trying to fit into church community and fellowship as a woman alone. I believe that there are times when our Father calls us to be vulnerable in an effort to make a divine difference in the world. You would be amazed at the stories that I could tell you about my experiences!!! For many years I tried to fit in to the church community in an unequally-yoked marriage relationship that I entered into at 15 years of age before I even knew Christ and His love for me. While there were always things I could do to help in church, there was always an underlying attitude amongst men and women of the church that because I was there without a man on my arm, I was questionable and untrustworthy, even though I had never done anything to earn me that reputation. I am not saying that all Christians made me feel this way, but many!!!

Setting out into life to be who God made me to be and to be His vessel of love and light has brought much mudslinging and hurt with implications that because I sought to be a sister to brothers and sisters I was as a harlot, a dog, not worthy of respect or inclusion.

Most of the time I continued to hold my head high and plow forward as Jesus’ heart moved me to love anyway, to reach out anyway to be who He created me to be, however there have been many times when the fight gets sooo old that I am just tempted to walk away as people continue to flip at me reminders time and time again how marriage is something to be respected. I agree with that and always have and I would never take away that gift from a couple and have always viewed my outreaches as one in purpose with Jesus who said:

“For I know the plans that I have for you, plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” 

Jeremiah 29:11

That has always been my heart for ministry for all people as individuals, trusting Jesus to guide me in relationship with each one and to be involved in the places He has felt it was where He wanted to work thru me. It is that same way to this day!!! This “misfit problem” is a problem I have experienced in the Christian community for many years and I don’t suppose it will go away any time soon as long as insecurities and weaknesses remain in people. How about you??? Has society made you feel as a misfit in the eyes of the world??? If so, I want to encourage you that you are not in the eyes of Jesus!!! Jesus was viewed in His day as a radical and a misfit by many, too and He persevered in His mission anyway!!!

Christ on cross

The devil tried to stop Him, but Jesus had the forever victory!!! WOOOHOOO!!! Oh I am sooo thankful that He did because we are both forever blessed by His faithfulness to His mission in life!!!

Jesus with hole in hand


“You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you and you will be my witnesses…” Acts 1:8

“Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”

Isaiah 30:21


Woman with Fire in Hand

Follow Jesus

When Jesus departed from earth, there were still hungry, poor and people who had never heard the Good News and people that still needed help to grow in their relationship with Him, however, His work walking upon the earth physically was done when He went to sit at the right hand of the Father in heavenly places!!! One of the most important things for us to understand in life, too, dear saint is that our hearts need to be led as Father’s Spirit leads us and not be led by the visibility of human need. Yes the needs of people can tug at our hearts, but our Father knows that one person cannot meet all the needs of all people, hence He desires that we each one listen to our Father’s heart for guidance!!! Jesus told Peter when Peter looked at the disciple following he and Jesus on the beach not to be concerned about him, but that Peter was to follow Jesus and focus on what Jesus had for Peter to do in life.

Walking in His Will

Learning to rest the needs of the many in the hands of Jesus is important to having inner peace and contentment in life as Father wills it for us as His sons and daughters!!! Where is your heart burdened with the needs of others??? As we pray to our Father about those needs, He will reveal what is divine to each of us in following where He wants us to go just like He did to Peter and He can also open and close doors to keep us where we are suppose to be. He can provide others to meet needs beyond us.  If we step out to do what our Father has for someone else to do, we keep someone else from doing divine life as Father desires to partner with them to reap the blessings of going with Him!!! Oh we certainly wouldn’t want to see them miss out on that divine opportunity!!! YIKES!!! Our Father provides us the anointing for the divine life so focusing where He desires for us is always the fruitful life!!!

Power of Christ

I appreciate the words of this song here about Jesus being “the way”. What way is He beckoning you to follow Him today??? Enjoy the journey with Him because it’s the divine life and the divine life with Jesus – oh it just makes ya smile!!! Smiling with ya with Jesus!!! Have a wonderful, divine and peace-full day with He who delights in you just because you are you!!! Me, too!!!

Jesus outstretched hands

“The Lord lift up His countenance on you, and give you peace.”

Numbers 6:26

The Blessing

Divine day greetings to you, wherever you are today, dear ones!!! Oh it is a great day of opportunity to bless people in the little things today!!! Father has put it on my heart today how being conscientious of speaking words of life to those around us can make such a huge difference. For example:

There was a time in my own personal life when I really wanted to have a child and I had prayed, gone thru lots of medical assistance and still no baby. I was trying to adopt when I finally conceived my daughter. Prior to her arrival, it was a great time of depression for me. It was always painful for me when I saw other parents with babies. It was at that time our Father brought a woman into my life that had compassion for me and prayed over me with a heart of understanding. She was the first model of the beauty of having a personal relationship with Jesus. Prior to that, all I knew was religion. This is the heart I want to have for the people in my life verses what Jesus saw when He walked the earth.  Here is the contrast: What a difference it would make in someone’s life in this situation if someone flaunted their baby at you to dig you for being without a child verses if they prayed for you and gave you hope and understanding in your struggle in life.

There is a story in the Bible about two women – one who had a baby and one who didn’t. The one who had a baby flaunted it at the woman who did not have out of meanness to her. How much more beautiful it would have been had the woman with the child prayed over and with the woman struggling instead of beating her over the head for what she was not able to have in life because of life circumstances.

These kinds of scenarios can happen purposefully or accidentally in life to any of us, so having a heart of compassion, understanding, love and forgiveness brings beauty out of ashes into the lives of people around us. Now how special to be able to bring blessing to another for Jesus who has blessed us each one with all the glorious riches of His kingdom as children of faith. Apart from Him, none of us would have anything!!! Therefore, I ask myself as I ask you, too “How is Father revealing to you to show compassion to someone around you today???” That is the heart of Jesus as we read in His Word:

“When He saw the crowds, He had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.” Matthew 9:36

This song here talks about the importance of words:

I am thankful we are able to life with Jesus together!!! Jesus makes a beautiful difference!!! Divine sisterly love to you wherever you are today ~

Opening the Door of Promise

I have heard it said before that we are not promised tomorrow. Have you ever heard that??? While our days on earth are in fact numbered on this earth, the TRUTH OF GOD’S WORD is that we are in fact promised tomorrow thru Jesus who gives us eternal life in paradise with Him thru our faith in His performance on the cross to give us forgiveness and reconciliation with our Father who is holy and desires to have no part of sin brought into our lives thru Satan our deceiver!!! Thru our faith in Christ’s outreach to deliver us as sons and daughters of faith into a forever victorious love relationship life in His kingdom with all of its glorious riches, we also have the promise of His Holy Spirit dwelling inside our hearts for His kingdom purposes while here on earth.

Cross Eternal Life

Jesus said in His written Word:

“…when He, the Spirit of Truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine; therefore I said that He takes of Mine and will disclose it to you.”

John 16:13-15

God's Hands of Light

Girl HS

Call it intuition if you will, but the Holy Spirit wants to move in our lives with us while we are on this earth to bring the kingdom of heaven onto earth for our blessing, the blessing of others and to give as many people as possible the opportunity to know the way to eternal victory life in His kingdom of love, peace and light. Oh there will be no darkness there at all and that is a wonderful reality of heaven and such that we can have light in the darkness of this earth here and now as we open the door to our Father’s Spirit and His promises in our lives!!! Here is how:

  • Upon faith in His gift of grace on the cross, we inherit all the promises of God. It is these “great and precious promises” that bring about His divine into our lives, making us “partakers of the divine nature.” We are made a new creation, given a new nature about us as we open up to His Spirit and promises to us!!! This is the first work of the Holy Spirit that settles Him into our hearts as we open the door to receive His gift of salvation.
  • Upon salvation, He continues to speak to our hearts what is of Christ. These speakings that He brings us are kingdom promises of His divine anointing and guidance – like “housewarming gifts” so to speak as we are His holy dwelling – His house where He dwells within us!!! He can speak to us thru the reading of His Word (the Bible), give us spiritual thoughts thru His still small voice of His Spirit, He can speak thru others, thru prayer prayed over us, a dream or vision, but it is never contrary to His written Word. He never lies or leads us to do evil. All the time God is good!!! Nothing He speaks to us will not have with it the anointing of His ability to live it out if we receive it!!!
  • The next step is trusting in what Father speaks to us!!! We don’t necessarily have to understand it fully to trust our Father. He often gives us a concept and then reveals new things about it as we step with Him in faith!!! When Mary found herself with the revelation that she would bring into the world the Christ child, she modeled trust in our Father when she said: “Let it be to me according to Your Word.” (Luke 1:38) She didn’t know all that would entail moving forward, but for the beginning of receiving from our Father, she trusted!!! As a result, she was “blessed are you among women and blessed is the child you will bear.” (Luke 1:42)
  • The next step to seeing the divine realized in our lives is enduring the testing of the enemy of this world and standing with our Father’s promises proven true and right. This happened to Jesus when He received the Word of His Father upon baptism “This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased.”  (Matthew 3:7) He was immediately led into the desert where Satan sought to put doubt into His mind about God’s promise to Him by saying “If you are the Son of God…” Jesus’ standing on God’s promise replied to the enemy: “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but by every Word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’ ” (Matthew 4:4)


Do Not Give the Devil A Foothold

Foot in Door

Jesus made the decision to not live His life outside of the Word of God, the voice of God and His spoken promises to Him and that is what brought Him victory in life!!! He received our Father’s Word with trust and acted upon it!!! What has our Father’s Spirit spoken to you, dear one??? Will you trust Him with it in your life even if you don’t fully understand how it will all work out??? What step of faith is He calling you to take with the promise He has given to you??? Oh it will bring the divine life to do so just as it did for Jesus!!! That is what our Father desires to do for each of us is to speak His promises into our lives to brings us divine life if we will open the door of our hearts to receive it in faith!!! Here is a song that talks about God’s faithfulness to us. As we pray, prepare as He leads us and go into life, we can trust Him to act in divine ways!!! WOOOHOOO!!! “All things are possible with God.” If He calls us to it, He will see us thru it as we believe His promises!!! I’m a gal believing Him with ya!!!

Faith Key to Victory

Building Divinely

Awesome new day greetings to ya wherever you are today!!! Whether our Father has placed you in the presence of a woman or a man, His purpose for us each is to carry out His will, His plan and His purpose for us as individuals!!! Oh He has made us builders as the Apostle Paul described himself by the grace of God:

“By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as a wise builder and someone else is building on it. But each one should build with care.”

1 Corinthians 3:10

When we step into life to carry out our Father’s will for us, building out of motives of the Holy Spirit will bring about divine building up of the church. Our work will be shown for what it is and what is built on the motives of Christ will survive and we shall receive a reward. If it is done with a motive contrary to the Holy Spirit, our work will be burned up and without reward. However, our salvation remains secure thru faith in Christ’s divine work on the cross for each of us and our seat in heaven is made sure – even though it will be only as one escaping through the flames. To build eternal work thru our lives that brings eternal reward, it takes first building up ourself thru prayer as Father tells us:

“But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit.”

Jude 1:20

Communion with the Holy Spirit in order to build others divinely is important because it is thru praying in the Spirit that our bodies and minds begin to experience an increased measure of the reality of the Holy Spirit’s presence with us!!!

Praying in the Spirit gives us access to the Holy Spirit teaching us how to think and pray:

“However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come. He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you.”

(John 16:13-14)

Woman and Man Praying Together

What is the Holy Spirit revealing to YOU to build???

Motive – may it always be that the glory of the Lord be shown on earth as it is in heaven as this song says here:

Giving of Self for Others


There is nothing sweeter to our Father than to hear His children singing praise to Him and He is zealous to show us that He is worthy of our praise!!! I love that He desires to bless our lives!!! But He also hopes that we’ll respond in praise of Him thru our walking in a mature relationship with Him – one in which our heart like His, is not all set on getting just what we want, but being willing to sacrifice in response to the call of our Father upon our lives to bless others He is calling us to give to in some divine way.

Follow Me

In times of difficulty we have special opportunity we don’t always have to demonstrate our love for Jesus by ministering to Him instead of attending to one’s own pressing needs. In those times, we can give to Jesus just because we are convinced that knowing Him is the reason to rejoice, rest in His peace and move forward in sacrifice for Him!!! WOOOHOOO!!! How exciting is that divine adventure gonna be!!!  When He sees that singleness of heart for Him, that total abandonment of one’s heart for Him as our Lord and for His heart, Jesus can’t stay away from blessing it!!! I love it that He finds us kids of faith irresistible!!! 🙂

Listening to Jesus

This special relationship with our King who loves us personally is what makes for the finding of our strength and guidance in the Lord, as opposed to being self-sufficient or doing life apart from Him on one’s own.

The logic of the Kingdom says that “you must lose your life in order to save it.”  When we lose our hearts of pride in exchange for humility, recognizing the heart of Jesus for us and our need for His difficult work on the cross for us as our sufficient needed grace as our individual personal Savior, we recognize the tremendous gift we have in Him. Jesus had mixed emotions about the cross – part of Him sweated blood over it and part of Him was excited about the joy set before Him in seeing the victory of His Father’s kingdom realized for the whole world of people!!! That gift of His love for us moves our hearts with gratitude and we find ourselves willing to lay all one’s life down too for our Father as He calls us divinely for the forward going of His Kingdom purposes, being willing to give in order to see His kingdom on earth happen as it does in heaven!!! Oh it makes a divine difference and that just makes me smile!!!

Christ on cross

Jesus Holding Light

 Why go life alone, powerless without consenting His Spirit moving in ya and apart from divine purpose when we can journey with the King of the Universe and help bring about what is going to bless others and make a divine good difference!!! WOOOHOOO!!!  If we need strength to do so, it begins when we give ourselves so totally to the Lord and His purposes that the Lord becomes the only One who can give us the supernatural strength we need as an individual to carry it out. Nobody else can give that to you or me!!! We can’t even breathe without Father’s grace!!! We can do all things thru Christ who gives us strength!!! (Philippians 4:13)

Power of Christ

Hence if we take the time each day to look past the problems and needs around us for a time enough to give God an extravagant expression of praise and rejoicing and focus, we will discover that while His blessings are awesome, HE is the greatest blessing of all to us. It leads to becoming a joyful person and a willing person!!! God is in a good mood – our complete joy comes from Him so as we hang with Him, His joy is bound to rub off on us and thru us to move us forward with excitement to see the blessing of Him and many as He reveals His will to us each!!! Our Father’s heart is this:

“God is not unjust; He will not forget your work and the love you have shown Him as you have helped His people and continue to help them.”

Hebrews 6:10

Heaven Rewards

What sacrifice is Father revealing to you to make in order to see His kingdom happen on earth as it does in heaven??? He loves a cheerful giver, so don’t give to Him meaningless sacrifice because you feel you have to for somebody else as it won’t be worth anything in heaven and it will be done without His supernatural power of support at work with us. Only go where Jesus is calling you to move. Jesus hung on the cross alone because He went for His Father’s heart alone!!! It blessed many including Himself because that is just what Father’s will does for all who trust in Him!!! What we give out of a heart of love for Jesus alone will last forever and we will be very thankful we gave, too!!! Not wanting to give??? What is the reason??? Wanting to give??? What is the reason??? ALWAYS LET THE REASON BE JESUS MOVING YOUR HEART!!! ALWAYS MOVE WITH THE HEART OF JESUS FOR THE DIVINE LIFE!!! OH IT’S THE BEST LIFE AND WE WILL BE FOREVER GLAD WE FOLLOWED HIS HEART FOR US!!! SEEKING FATHER’S HEART!!! WHAT DOES IT SPEAK TO YOU DEAR SAINT???

Pastor With Bible

Here is a song about following the heart of Jesus!!! God bless you as you seek Him for divine life!!! Father loves you!!! Me, too!!! 🙂

You On the Move

Kingdom family on the move into the world for Jesus, oh that is what we are, dear saints!!! Every day is a new adventure to look forward to!!!

Adventures With God

Being on the move in life is good as it is what the Apostle Paul did and it is what Jesus did after His resurrection!!! It is what Jesus called His disciples to do in life, too!!! Keep moving forward!!! Jesus did not let His love and desire to stay in His past 33 years on earth keep Him from the new actions and new opportunities that His Father had for Him and He did not want the disciples to live in the past and not move forward with the new actions and new opportunities that He had for them either!!! Oh I am sooo thankful they moved forward with Father’s divine plans of them!!! I have faith in Jesus because of that and oh sooo thankful for that!!! I just don’t know what I would do without Jesus in life!!!

When Jesus asked Peter if he loved Him on the beach after Jesus’ death on the cross and resurrection, Peter looked back and saw someone else walking behind them. He began to focus on that person behind and he asked Jesus “what about this man?” Jesus response was in essence “what is that to you what my plans are for him??? You follow Me.” (John 21:20-22)

companion-3 God's Miracles.jpg

Jesus may have had a plan for Peter to have divine journey with the man behind them or not and perhaps it would vary as He carried out His divine purpose for each one of them over the course of time. That is why Jesus said “you follow Me.” Oh when we each one oh so special follow Jesus, He gets us there to the divine places in life just right!!! YAY!!! GOOO   JESUS!!! GOOO KINGDOM KIDS WITH JESUS WITH YOU!!! ME, TOO!!!

Looking back in life can have fond memories and other memories that are hard for us to look back on. We can learn from past experiences and move forward, but sometimes people can find it difficult from pulling away from the past to move forward because they allow worldly (unproductive) regret to set up shop, slow them down or stop them from freely taking what was learned and moving forward into divine new life action given the opportunities that they have today and tomorrow (productive regret)!!! If something teaches us and leads us to the better, the wiser, why would there be guilty regret??? Here are some thoughts to ponder about regret that is defined as: “I change my mind.” I change one care or interest for another.” I change my mind (generally for the better).” “I repent – change the inner person (particularly with reference to acceptance of the will of God.)”

What causes one to repent of worldly or ungodly regret instead of letting it go??? What keeps one stuck in the past??? Our Father tells us this:

“…do you think lightly of the riches of His kindness and tolerance and patience, not knowing that the kindness of God leads you to repentance.”

Romans 2:4

Jesus outstretched hands

If our Father sees His children thru eyes of grace, so should each of us as His kids see ourselves in ways of godliness and that means to see ourselves thru eyes of grace!!! We are all in the process of growing for all of our lives and just because we are of a certain age does not mean that we should expect that we have stopped learning and growing in life, or that just because we have children, or a spouse or employees, or peers that we should be perfect!!! Jesus sees us as perfect thru our faith in Him, but still we each person alive will continue to grow and learn and we should not condemn ourselves for not having been born with the full knowledge of God. God is beyond us in wisdom and that is why we need Him to focus on!!! We must remember we are in a war with the enemy of this world and none of us (not even Jesus was) exempt from Satan’s pressures and influence. Even so the case, I say “HOOORAHHH” because we live, we learn and keep walking forward with the same fighting Spirit for Jesus as the Apostle Paul did when he wrote:

“I have fought the good fight – I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”

2 Timothy 4:7

This is the same man who had a past less than perfect, but a record of learning from it, embracing the divine life for his life moving forward and keeping faith in Jesus to work thru him to make a divine difference right wherever Jesus took him in life fighting the enemy of life with him!!!

Fight Satan

Here are some thoughts to ponder about letting go of past mistakes and sorrows over it:

  • Take what you learn from it, make apologies and restitution for your part, ask for forgiveness from others and our Father, extend grace to others as we have been forgiven by our Father for our mistakes and move forward the wiser where Jesus leads daily, doing what we can where we are and with what we have to improve ourselves, while resting that our Father’s grace for us is always sufficient!!!
  • Shift from spending energy on the inside of you worrying over the past to spending energy given by the Holy Spirit to put forth on the outside of you. (I can’t change what happened, but I can do better now with opportunities given.) Resist riding onward with past sorrows.
  • Set new goals – find something positive and meaningful to focus on. Change your strategy with motivation for new action.
  • Write a letter to yourself as if you were someone else needing to forgive themselves for their past. They need forgiveness, mercy, compassion and divine encouragement. What would you write to them with Father’s guidance??? Claim that for you!!!
  • Realize that often, if given life to do it all over again, the outcome would be no different. Perhaps it was meant to be and Father has a divine plan at work in our lives!!!
  • Reduce reliance on something specific happening in life in order to have joy in the Lord and seeing ourself as a success!!! Faith in Jesus’ grace is our success in life!!! We can trust Jesus where we are right now and not let our life depend on something specific happening. We can let our life right now be a spiritual act of worship of He who loves us!!! Change where change is needed and Spirit-led in ways that you can, resting in Jesus for what is beyond that. Let us not let the enemy kick us over and over and over and over and on and on and on on the inside. If someone was physically kicking us on our outside, would we let it continue? I don’t think so!!! Neither should we let it happen on our inside!!! There has to be a way of stopping him!!! He laughs at beating us up with guilt trips!!! We are called to destroy the works of the enemy and that includes stopping letting him bully us over our past, sweet saints!!!
  • Tell ourselves “I learned a lot from my past and I am worthy of a bright future!!!”
  • Allow ourselves to see ourselves as human because that is what we are!!! Humans make mistakes and thru faith in Jesus, we are continually loved and forgiven and powerful to rise up and move forward in victory!!! As we look to Him, He will make our paths straight on course for His purpose for us!!!
  • Focus on the fact that other people have regrets, too and some may be even more wrenching than yours or mine!!! Oh may they find the divine life to move forward in victory!!! Perhaps you can help them??? Let us seek to build empathy for others thru what we have experienced in life and put it into action to encourage others!!! Consider that what happened in the past to us individually could have been worse!!! This brings gratitude into our lives!!! Let us consider that possibility to take on the challenges of the enemy!!! Let us not let him stop us in moving forward for divine life that is a heavenly mindset, being strong and courageous with divine reason to push onward ho in celebration of new opportunities to defeat the enemy of this world and bring victory to those around us, bring glory to Jesus and further our royal kingdom family of which we are sons and daughters – princes and princesses!!! 🙂 Special and divine, all victorious, more than conquerors in all things and loved forever by the King of kings and Lord of lords we are!!! YYYIIIPPPEEE!!!

Godly regret (productive regret) can be positive if we are moved to let it move us forward divinely and act on new opportunities around us in life!!! I get inspired by that thought!!!

Worldly enemy regret (sorrow) is crippling and it is better to take a step of faith with Jesus power with us by trying something new based on what we have learned from the past than to waste future opportunity sulking with the enemy over what might have been different. In this way of stepping in faith in Jesus with the past, we minimize future regrets of not going for Jesus and staying where the devil wants to hold us in bondage!!! NEVER BE THAT!!! NEVER!!! Let’s go for a Godly, not worldly, enemy-regret-free salvation life and put the Holy Spirit power on as He leads us stepping for new adventure life into today and the future!!! “For it is He who works in us to will and act according to His good purpose.” (Philippians 2:13)

Power of Christ

I love this song of Father’s grace for us here. Father’s peace, love, grace, power and victory to you wherever you are!!! Divine sisterly love to you, too!!! Proud of you for letting go of what needs to be let go and taking hold of Father’s righteous right hand of love for ya!!! Going for Father with ya into this world!!!
