Rivers of Gratitude

Oh the thanksgiving is flowing out of my heart with you, precious saints of faith!!! Jesus is with us and His blessings are everywhere around us to be seen and within us as His Holy Spirit pours out to our Spirit the desire to shout out “Abba Father” to He who has created us in His love and who gives us all things heavenly!!! Oh I sooo agree with His written Word (His love letter – the Bible) that says:

“As high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His lovingkindness toward those who fear (reverence) Him.” 

Psalm 103:11

Not only are our sweet Father’s blessings visible all around us, but they are within us as His beloved as well:

“He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.'”

John 7:38

One of the best secrets to victory life is to listen to our Father’s voice in our innermost being as He speaks life into us from His LIVING WATERS. Oh His love and encouragement to our souls truly makes all the difference in the world as we believe His heart for us that we are His people in whom He delights and smiles upon just because we believe in Him!!! Now how awesome is that – we believe in Him and He believes in us as His all right kingdom kids without us doing a single thing but having a heart of faith that He loves us and is our forever Savior, never to leave us nor forsake us!!! Such a blessed deal forever!!! WOOOHOOO!!! PUT ON THE DANCING IN VICTORY SHOES!!!

As we fill up with His perfect love for us, His lovingkindness brings to life repentance – a change within our hearts (a mindset that says I’m going with your heart, Father) and apart from His Spirit at work in us, we can do nothing, not even breathe. Therefore, let us be alive in trusting in Him who always leads us in triumphant procession through His sufficient grace for us. He works good through all things in our lives, so as we stay open to His Holy Spirit to pour into us as His whom He flat out gets excited about doing life with, it’s gonna be a good day of seeing heaven on the move in us, through us and all around us to work through all circumstances heavenly as we stay connected to Him!!!

We can have peace even when life flares up issues that are upsetting because we know that as we pray about them with full awareness that Father is near, we can rejoice and have thanksgiving that He is indeed with us and that He is able to help us in perfect divine ways that is beyond all we can ask or imagine!!! Now how awesome is that to have heaven’s help to make us more than conquerors in all things thru Christ Jesus who loves us!!!  Therefore, our minds can be guarded in Him with His peace that transcends all understanding.

As we pray and stay calm in Him, He will guide our hearts in what we need to do if anything and He will work in His own razzle dazzle ways to bring heaven to earth!!! Truly Father is our river of living waters in our innermost being that takes us from earthly life to heavenly life so let us stay close to our lifestream of Jesus today!!! I’m a gal doing so with you and enjoying the love, grace and victory of Jesus as our everything with a heart filled full of thanksgiving with ya!!! Sooo thankful we are kingdom family together forever, even now!!! Happy and smiling!!! I like this song here that talks about how His rivers of living water raises us up in amazing grace!!! HOOORRRAAAHHH!!! FLOWING WITH JESUS WITH YA’S WHEREVER HE IS MOVING YOU IN LIFE TODAY!!!

New day greetings, precious saints wherever you are today!!! My heart for heaven on earth is on the move with Jesus with ya’s for the journey of life gifted to us today!!! HOOORRRAAAHHH!!! What a privilege and honor to travel with the King of Glory where He is leading us each one on a special assignment from His royal throne of grace directly!!! Oh He sees us each one oh sooo special and even knows the number of hairs on our heads!!! He has had His eye on each one of us from the time He first thought about us and said oh this one is going to be a Masterpiece and sure enough when He was done creating YOU and me, too, He said “It is very good.” Soon marvel at yourself darlin’ because YOU are truly heavenly – an absolute dream come true on this earth with heaven as our forever eternal home!!! YEP!!! WE’RE ALL GONNA MEET UP THERE AND IT’S GONNA BE ONE HEAVENLY CELEBRATION!!! WOOOHOOO!!! THAT HAS ME SMILING AND HAPPY TODAY TO THINK ABOUT!!!

Meanwhile, back at the farm of earth where we are all planted and producing seeds of love and grace in the dirt fields of the enemy, it is growing season for the big kingdom harvest of all of God’s people that shall spring forth victorious as God’s holy Spirit waters and provides Sunshine to warm us and light up the inner core of our beings with heavenly nutrients necessary to bring eternal life!!! Oh how massive the opportunity for divine up-croppings of new seedlings of faith in the always good Master who has the big picture plan to bring good into the life of each one, to give hope and a future that is heavenly!!! RUH, RUH, RUH!!! I’m a gal seeking to bloom for Him where He has me planted by His grace, too!!!

As we each one sprout and grow, there is no need to have concerns of competition over one receiving our Father’s love, acceptance, blessing and approval more than another, because that Holy Spirit sap He has for us to give us the essential nourishment we need to be content and happy in His loving care for us is this from His Word (the Bible):

“But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it.”

Ephesians 4:7

Therefore, Father has given us each one exactly what we need to stand victorious in the very spot in life where He has us planted, so lets us each one enjoy the Sonshine upon our lives right where Father has us for such a time as this!!! How exciting is life with our Father with each other!!! I love Him in my life with ya’s!!! Our lives serve purpose to grow and produce just what Father sees is divine for the harvest of this earth and He will do what is needed as He tells us:

“For it is God who works in you (me, too) to will and to act in order to fulfill His good purpose.”

Philippians 2:13

Therefore, our focus is to enjoy His loving smile upon us and the life we all have together in the common purpose of loving our Father, loving ourself and loving our neighbor as ourselves!!! Oh what a sweet life we have, dear ones of faith and we can know that as we look to Father, He will take care of all the weeds of the enemy so we need not fear their overtaking us!!! His promise to us is “Never will I leave you nor forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5) POWERFUL WE ARE WITH OUR ALWAYS GOOD AND VICTORIOUS MASTER AT WORK IN US, THRU US AND ALL AROUND US!!! ENJOY HIS LOVE FOR YOU TODAY!!! I AM, TOO!!! MUCH LOVE TO YOU WHERE YOU ARE STANDING FIRM IN JESUS!!! IT’S A BEAUTIFUL DAY AS THIS SONG SAYS HERE. SMILING AND HAPPY!!!

Good News Life

New day greetings to you precious saints wherever you are!!! I want to share with you today that I have taken on full-time work assisting a sweet 89-year young lady (for how long, only Father knows) and as I can, I will continue to write some although it may take some time to figure out my new routine. 🙂

For now, as I reflect upon our Father’s Word, I smile and my eyes get a little teary as I think about how sweet our Jesus is!!! He has such a heart of compassion for His people and He speaks through King David of the anointing that would be upon the coming Messiah Jesus and whose same Spirit lives in us as His people of faith today. This is His heart, was His earthly mission on earth and is the intent of His anointing upon us as His saints:

“The Spirit of the Lord

God is upon me;

Because the LORD has

anointed me

To bring good news to the

afflicted;

He has sent me to bind

up the brokenhearted,

To proclaim liberty to

captives

And freedom to

prisoners;

To proclaim the favorable

year of the LORD

And the day of vengeance

of our God;

To comfort all who mourn,

To grant those who

mourn in Zion,

Giving them a garland

instead of ashes,

The oil of gladness

instead of mourning,

The mantle of praise

instead of a spirit of

fainting.

So they will be called

oaks of righteousness,

The planting of the LORD,

that He may be

glorified.”

Psalm 61:1-3

I love the reasoning behind our Father’s heart to bless us in these ways, not only to bring Him glory that He so highly deserves because everything we are and have is from His loving caring hand, but let us also zoom in on this:

“So they will be called oaks of righteousness.”

In other words, Father loves on us so that we will thrive as this song says here!!! Not only does Father’s holy sap anointing flowing through us as His people make us strong and mighty and able to be His vessels through whom He works and enables to live out the Christian life, but through our faith in His finished work on the cross, we are seen as holy, blameless, without accusation and without condemnation!!! YAY!!! We are robed forever in His righteousness as His royal family forever and His face shines upon us in delight!!! Now how wonderful is Father to us!!! Oh He just makes me smile always!!!  I’m branching out in thriving life with Jesus with ya forever, His beloved one of faith!!! Divine sisterly love to you!!! Stand tall in Jesus by seeking Him as you have need!!! I’m seeking Him to be able to thrive too!!! Staying close to Jesus makes our lives beautiful and forever victorious!!! HOOORRRAAAHHH!!! Winners we are!!! Happy and smiling!!!

A Tickled Heart

Have you ever had an experience in life where your heart is tickled???? By that I am describing a heart tickled as one excited or stirred up agreeably, provoked to laugher, joy or merriment. It gives ya this kind of expression:

Girl YES

Smile 🙂

I have to say the Lord truly just tickles my heart in heavenly ways as I look to Jesus first and foremost in life! King David understood this when he wrote this praise of deliverance by our Father. As you read it, see if you can pick up on how his heart is tickled by the Father:

“O Lord, in Your strength the king will be glad,

And in Your salvation

how greatly he will rejoice!

You have given him his heart’s desire,

And You have not withheld

the request of his lips.

Selah.

For You meet him with 

the blessings of good things;

You set a crown of fine gold on his head.

He asked life of You,

You gave it to him,

Length of days forever and ever.

His glory is great through

Your salvation,

Splendor and majesty You place upon him.

For you make him most blessed forever;

You make him joyful with gladness in Your 

presence.

For the king trusts in the LORD,

And through the lovingkindness 

of the Most High he will not be shaken.”

Psalm 21:1-7

This Psalm or praise of deliverance was written in response to the prayers of the people for King David in which they prayed for him:

“May the LORD answer you in the day of trouble!

May the name of the

God of Jacob set you

securely on high!

May He send you help

from the sanctuary (sacred place)

And support you from Zion!

May He remember all 

your meal offerings

And find your burnt offering

acceptable!

May He grant you your heart’s desire

And fulfill all your 

counsel!

We will sing for joy over your victory,

And in the name of our God we will set up

our banners.

May the LORD fulfill all 

your petitions.

Now I know that the LORD saves His

anointed;

He will answer him from 

His holy heaven

With the saving

strength of His right hand.

Some boast in chariots 

and some in

horses,

But we will boast in the

name of the LORD, our 

God.

They have bowed down and fallen,

But we have risen and

stood upright.

Save, O LORD;

May the King answer us

in the day we call.

Psalm 20

WOW! According to King David, the LORD answered the people’s prayers for him against enemy armies and that not only tickled King David’s heart, but the hearts of the people who boasted in advance of the faithfulness of their God in response to their prayer that they had confidence in to bring heaven to their king and hence to them! Oh that kinda makes ya want to pray for your leader, doesn’t it! Doing so with ya!

Prayer Can Move Mountains

When we as God’s people look to Him, He puts upon our hearts what is of heaven’s heart for us!!!! As the people prayed “May He grant you your heart’s desire And fulfill all your counsel!” the LORD went to work in guiding King David’s heart and counseled him in such a way that led King David to have a heart in agreement and celebration of victory with heaven and oh that is sure how our Father still works in the lives of His people even today! We may think this way initially or step forward with a plan and our Father reveals His Godly counsel as we go that can move our hearts to match up with heaven’s heart plan for us and when we see it and go with it, our hearts are tickled with joy and gladness for we trust in the LORD!!! Through His lovingkindness of revealing heaven to our hearts, we are not shaken, but enlightened and excited about going with the heavenly plan in life and seeing His victory for us as Father’s Word tells us:

“Delight yourself in the LORD;

And He will give you the

desires of your heart.

Commit your way to the LORD,

Trust also in Him, and He 

will do it.

He will bring forth your

righteousness as the 

light

And your judgment 

as the noonday.”

Psalm 37:4-6

Because our Father is righteous and just, we have the assurance that He will extend righteousness and justice to His people of faith in Him! HOOORRRAAAHHH! Oh that glory of His that will be unveiled soon with the coming of His kingdom shall be like the rising sun at dawn and like the bright light at noon! This we can be sure of, for us of faith in Christ Jesus as our Savior, there will be no condemnation for us – only reward for what we do on this earth out of a heart for heaven! GLORY BE TO JESUS FOREVER!

jesus-holding-light-in-hands

Therefore, let us keep praying, precious family of faith and looking to our Father and we, too shall find our hearts tickled in His victory blessings for us as He is at work in our lives even now and forever! Oh He has a heavenly way of changing the atmosphere of our hearts to bring heaven to us here on earth as this song says here. To that I say, bring it sweet loving kind Jesus! I sooo want to have a heavenly heart after your own heart!

holy-spirit-in-you

He loves us of faith, dear ones and is faithful to lead us in triumphant procession always as we keep looking to Him Who is all the time good and forever victorious and therefore, so are we!!!! WOOOHOOO!!!! I’m tickled about that and rejoicing with ya’s wherever you are today!!!! Let us stay connected in unity of heart through prayer to our Father for heaven’s heart for us because it’s the divine life that just tickles our hearts!!!! Oh that thought just makes me smile! 🙂 It’s a good life with Jesus with us wherever we are just as we are! Father sees us His of faith always holy, blameless and beyond reproach–if indeed we continue in the faith firmly established and steadfast and not moved away from the hope of the gospel that we have heard which was proclaimed in all creation under heaven.

The Gospel Truth

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”

John 3:16

The Strong Hold

Powerful new day greetings to you His precious royal of faith in Christ Jesus!!! As I begin this new gift of life today, I am powerfully encouraged and strengthened in our Father’s promises to us from the Lord towards His people as He shared His heart thru His leader Moses towards the Israelites in their war with the enemy:

“And Moses said to the people, ‘Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever. The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.'”

Exodus 14:13-14

Faith is Having COurage

As I reflect upon this passage in the Bible today, these thoughts stand out to me:

  • God appoints leaders to lead people
  • God speaks to His leaders as to what to speak and do for the people
  • God desires that His people be at peace in heart in trusting in Him and His victory for them.
  • God desires that His people cease from all activity at times to hear His heart for them.
  • God desires that His people trust that He will save His people.
  • God is able to accomplish what He promises His people.
  • In spite of enemy tactics that flare up, God desires that His people realize He has authority over the enemy and forever victory over the enemy for His people.
  • God fights for His people in ways that are beyond anything that His people can do.
  • There are times when God calls His people to be still and know that He is God and that He will be exalted among the nations, He will be exalted in the earth. (Psalm 46:10)
  • God is able to preserve our peace in Him thru His power at work for us!!!

no-vision-people-perish

angel-warrior

We can trust God and His whole angel army are in our midst working in supernatural ways for us as His of faith!!! Ruh, Ruh, Ruh!!! Power on JESUS!!! WE ARE CHEERING YOU ON THRU OUR PRAYERS AND FAITH IN YOU AND FOR YOUR LEADERS YOU PERSONALLY PUT IN OUR LIVES TO GOVERN US IN ACCORDANCE WITH YOUR GUIDANCE FOR THEM FOR THEM AND FOR US FOR YOU FOR YOUR VICTORY FOR THE WORLD!!! YYYEEESSS BRING IT FATHER!!! YYYEEESSS YOU CAN!!!

Our Father tells us in His Word:

“The Lord is good, a STRONGHOLD in the day of trouble; and He knows those who trust in Him.” Nahum 1:7

Whenever we see the enemy seeking to put a stronghold upon us as people, we can know that our Father has THE STRONGHOLD upon us as His people from the love of God and this His powerful promise:

“…in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 8:37-39

Here is a powerful song that speaks of Jesus as our strong tower, shelter over us as His beloved of faith!!! Oh I am sooo thankful that our Father fights for us as His people and gives us powerful leaders to guide us all in unity of His will, His plan and His purpose for us!!! Who is Father calling you to hear as His leader??? Are you a leader??? You can know our Father will give you what you need to lead His people divinely!!! Where is Father calling you to be still and know that He is your God fighting for your rescue??? Have peace that you are STRONGLY HELD by the power of the universe held in our Father’s righteous right hand!!! HOOORRRAAAHHH!!! God’s forever got us victorious as we trust in Him!!! We are sooo blessed as His people!!! Oh that gives my heart such peace knowing that our Father knows how to communicate with us as His people and work beyond us to do more than we can ever ask or imagine!!! We can’t even breathe without Him and because of His promises to us and His record of faithfulness and love to His people, we can rest knowing we shall experience His ongoing rescue that results in our singing songs of His deliverance!!! Much love to you His beloved!!! Let us keep the faith in our faithful Father!!!

Coupled in Life

Blessings of love to you, precious saints here with me!!! I am sooo thankful our Father has made us Kingdom family together and that we can work together to bring heaven to earth to bless our Father, bless each other and bless others. As I continue to share some generalized areas of ministry that each of us individually will typically step in and out of in the course of our life, today I am sharing thoughts for couples as taken from our Father’s Word. Diving right in – wooohooo, here we go and it is my heart that you will find our Father’s heart of love and light for your own heart as He speaks personally to you. It is with a heart that longs for all to be blessed that I share these things:

Wives:

If you have a husband, God desires for you to be his helper, to assist and aid him (Genesis 2:18-25), to partner with him (1 Peter 3:7), to be a faithful companion (Exodus 20:14), to encourage him and build him up as a man (Proverbs 14:1, 1 Thessalonians 5:11), to meet his sexual needs and please him (1 Corinthians 7), to respect him and put forward his opinions as is fitting to the Lord (Colossians 3:18).

Husbands:

If you have a wife, God desires for you to love her as your own body, as yourself (Ephesians 5:33), be considerate of her and her opinions (1 Peter 3:7, Ephesians 5:21), encourage her and build her up as a woman ((1 Thessalonians 5:11), not being harsh with her (Colossians 3:19), loving her as Christ loves the church – giving himself up for her (Ephesians 5:25), treating her with respect (1 Peter 3:7), protecting her by your stronger physical abilities (1 Peter 3:7), meeting her sexual needs (1 Corinthians 7), being faithful to her (Exodus 20:14) so that nothing hinders your prayers (1 Peter 3:7).

God calls us all to consider the opinions of all people and to not seek our own good, but the good of others, but this does not mean to put them above God or become a participant in sin (Ephesians 5:21, 1 Corinthians 10:24 & 33, Proverbs 14:16a, Exodus 20:3).

We are also called to show proper respect to everyone (1 Peter 2:17). Respect is defined as “to consider deserving of high or special regard”.  It is important to remember also, that if we desire the respect of others, we need to seek to be respectable – not making it difficult for people to respect us (1 Timothy 3:8, 11; 1 Thessalonians 5:11, 1 Thessalonians 4:12, Proverbs 11:16, Titus 2:2).

It is important to not take spouses for granted. Be thankful for your spouse (Colossians 3:15). If you find yourself focusing on negative thoughts about your spouse, take your thoughts captive to Christ and focus on “Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things” (Philippians 4:8). An exercise that is helpful in doing this is to go through the alphabet and for each letter, state a word that begins with that letter that represents a true good quality about your spouse (for example: A – She adores me and my children, B – He is bold, C – He is courageous, etc… by the time you get to Z, you have 26 good reasons to admire your spouse.   Have you ever considered that there are many lonely people in the world who would perhaps love to have your spouse? I see the sadness of lonely people all the time. Does any stranger walking down the street treat your spouse better than you do? Do you strive to be the “special someone” in your spouse’s life? Do you seek to minister to your spouse’s needs out of love even though they are not your needs? Do you realize that God loves your spouse as much as He loves you? Galatians 3:28 says in God’s eyes “There is neither male nor female.” He loves them both the same. God understands our spouses as unique individuals and He knows what will bless them, so ask Him to give you wisdom in how to bless your spouse.

Healthy marriages practice these things and seek to work as a team to “discern the best” (Philippians 1:10) and keep peace and harmony in their relationship (Proverbs 3:13-17). If differences are creating bitterness and resentment, marriage partners need to quickly (Ephesians 4:26-27) seek God’s wisdom through prayer (Psalm 119:25, James 1:5), the study of God’s Word and godly counsel (Proverbs 1:5, Proverbs 15:14 & 22, Proverbs 3:21) to resolve problems (Matthew 12:25) and restore peace (Hebrews 12:14).

Couples should also work together to manage their homes and children well (Proverbs 31:27, Titus 2:5, 1 Timothy 3:12). Ask God to show you the definition of “well”.  Sometimes people can go to the extreme of “too perfect” and some are “too relaxed” in caring for their homes and children. We want to make it our aim to bring glory to God in the eyes of our neighbors and those who might enter into our homes. Consider also the feelings of your family about your home. What makes your home comfortable to them? What ministers to them and to others who are visiting? Is your family embarrassed about where and how they live? If so, ask your family why and work through it together as a family. It is good when your family loves to be home and they feel good about bringing home their friends instead of being out with friends where there are all sorts of temptations. When they are in your home, you know what they are doing and who they are with. This also gives you the opportunity to minister to them and show them the love of Christ.

Family at Cross

While there is lots to ponder here, in it all, the Holy Spirit will guide you as an individual and move your heart in what is right as He promises:

“For it is God who works in us to will and to act according to His purpose.”

Philippians 2:13

holy-spirit-in-you

It is also important to understand that our Father understands each situation and sees His people thru eyes of love and grace and is always with His to guide. I love it that we can always approach our Father’s throne of grace with confidence to find help in all of life!!!

Married and parents??? Blessings to you!!! Sooo proud of you for your perseverance in the heart of Jesus in the center of your relationships!!! I greatly admire that in you!!! 🙂 One of the ways our Father shows us His love is in giving us relationships in life!!! Here is a song about His amazing love for us all whether married or single as the bride of Christ of which we all are as His church!!! Marriage is a model of our relationship with Jesus!!! It’s all a divine beautiful love story for sure!!! One that just makes me smile!!! 🙂

Dancing with Jesus

 

 

Letting Light Shine Into Action

I read an article today and had a conversation with a neighbor who was distraught today that has moved my heart to share these thoughts with you all today in the love of Jesus with nobody in mind, but moved by the Spirit to share these things for however the Lord might work thru these stories.

Looking upward keeps from being downcast!!! Oh that is the delightful place to be in life for sure!!! King David got it when he wrote:

“Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise Him, my Savior and my God.”

Psalm 42:5

transformed-in-mind

When you put your hope in God and have a mindset of bringing about His goals in life, it outshines the agenda of the world and the flesh!!! That’s a good thing!!!  As an individual and as a family, this makes a difference because our Father’s provision is based upon His will, His plan and His purpose for us and He promises to meet all our needs for those plans.  Needs are different from our wants. It is good to identify why we want. Is it for divine reasons or for the flesh or the world??? In a family, it is important to have divine “family” goals.

I know of a woman who desired to have family goals that took into consideration the whole families’ best interest and the Lord’s work, however, her husband would very rarely discuss it with her and didn’t share a plan of his own other than to just keep making money and spend as little as possible. He most often considered her ideas as insignificant and without any merit and always had reasons why they couldn’t do things that she dreamed of, like spending some extra to fix some things on their home, go and celebrate their milestone years of marriage together, inviting people over for dinner, going out on a date, doing things to help other people or putting out money to travel to see their kids. Yet he had one of the biggest men’s toy boxes that cost more than their house, always justifying purchases as investments, but not willing to invest in his relationships or God’s kingdom purposes. He wasn’t open to getting counseling to work thru their differences. Hence, it didn’t take long for the woman to realize the unfairness and selfishness of the man and his heart that cared less about her heart or the heart of others – only what he could get from her as a wife. If she didn’t provide what he wanted when he wanted, she was in trouble and he pouted and blamed her that drove her farther away.  She began to lose love and respect for him and quit caring about his desires because he cared not for her heart. This isn’t to say a human heart is always focused on what is divine, but if it is, it should be listened to.

***********************************************************************

I know of a woman who lived in her dreams of having artistic perfection in all that she did to the point that she put things and accomplishments that were worldly above her relationships and God’s kingdom purposes. It didn’t matter the family budget, she had to have the new outfit or decor for the house, the latest this or that. She spent the family into debt, causing the husband to work more and more hours to pay her overspending habit so she could stay home and raise their children. He became too tired to do the things she wanted him to do when he was home because of the hours spent trying to earn her a big enough paycheck while she stayed at home and dreamed about how to improve the looks of her house and the family appearance. Dinner was her job as a stay at home mom and it wasn’t done on time often because of her focus on her own self-interest dreaming. Finally, she went to work to have enough money to satisfy her worldly desires and with the weight of that time spent on top of all the other important things she needed to do but didn’t get done, but was trying to do – at the end of the day, she was too tired to give her husband any energy to love him – she had spent it all on things that were put before he.  Her husband felt cheated and abandoned and became frustrated in not being able to reach his wife’s ways of thinking to change her mind in any way from what her heart was set on as most important in life. This story isn’t to say that women who work are always working because of a worldly mindset, as there are lots of heavenly reasons why a woman does work. Sometimes a man stays at home and works for the team effort while a woman works outside the home. The important thing is to keep good balance between the time commitments the spouses make to each other and their family and that they have divine goals together for how they spend their money so both feel good about it and cared for. This is why it is not good to be unequally yoked, but to be yoked together with Christ as the center of our lives!!! He said “I am the way, the truth and the life.” John 14:6

Christ One Eye

Oh these are some hard stories to hear, but I share these examples here with ya’s because we have an enemy named Satan and he is always tempting people. The enemy creeps into lives in subtle ways, dear ones and it all starts when the wants of hearts become different from what Jesus wants – his wants and her wants instead of God wants. He has the best plan always and when couples are open to His heart for their divine lives together, it makes a huge difference in their relationship. I know not how our Father might speak to your hearts thru this, but I rest it with Him with ya’s!!! Oh when two people are open to Godly counsel because our Father so often works thru an outside look into circumstances to reveal the answers to bring the healing, correction and victory into marriage, divine relationships happen. Our hope is always in Jesus as this song says here. Why be downcast when there are answers for victory by looking up. WOOOHOOO!!! How is Father moving your heart to think heavenly in your relationship – what do you need to give and claim for Jesus??? It is good to ponder these things and reach for the divine in relationships because it brings the divine life and oh the divine life is the best life that just makes ya smile!!! There is a reason for the light of heaven shining into our lives on earth – it is for our divine well being and one of the biggest competitors against our Father is money and what it will buy!!! Money and stress over money is one of the biggest problems in relationships. This is something important to talk about. What are the best choices for money in your life and if married, in your marriage relationship??? Get solutions to the problems before money destroys love and families.
