I find it interesting that the lion wants to stay where it finds love in relationship rather than step out into the world all alone. As you know, Sam, a person is never alone because Jesus is always with us as His people of faith!!! Oh that just makes me smile!!! As you also know, Sam, Father created us for relationship!!! I am reminded that it is always good news wherever He opens and closes doors in our lives to put us in the divine place for us to be together with divine purpose with Him working in us as His people of faith!!! 🙂 Lots to ponder about this video!!! I am reminded of this song here about being a new creation in faith in Jesus and the specialness of His love:

Thank you for the pondering again today, Sam!!! I’m sharing it!!!

Lured by Light

Good pondering here in this video, Sam Samy!!!

Thank you for sharing this!!! It speaks to me and I will share it with my lady friends who journey my road of purpose with me to always be careful about what we let lure us because the devil disguises himself as an angel of light!!! Our defense is to stay close to Jesus and pray, pray, pray always!!! I like this song here about protection found in Jesus

Drawn Divinely

This Sam Samy video speaks volumes here!!!
Oh when you have a man in your life, his heart is your first priority, dear ladies of mine!!! It is good when the man makes himself very attractive, alluring and hard to resist in manly ways, too!!! Tell him what you find attractive for him to implement!!! Ask him what would be attractive to him for you to do, too!!!

Going Supernatural

Well, I’m a gal all zealed up for Jesus again today by His Holy Spirit moving my heart to go for Him, sweet family!!! Oh I just get all excited about all of the possibilities of where our Father can take each one of us as His kingdom family into life for making a divine difference as He moves our hearts individually!!!

Girl YES

For each person, there are lots of possibilities and sorting thru them to find our Father’s heart is important for divine life!!! It happens when we seek Him in prayer:

Pray to God as Psalm 20:4 says: “May you (God) give me the desires (God’s desires) of my heart and make all your (God’s) plans succeed”.   Another prayer that I have found very helpful when overwhelmed is:

“Father:

Sometimes I find it hard to manage my time well. There is so much to do and that can be done! Please help me to prioritize my daily activities and finances to align with your will, your plan, your purpose, and to do what is most important as well as the little mundane tasks that must be done. Help me to know when to say “no” to projects and requests that come along that would overwhelm me or take away from what you want me to do. Please help me to always love and care for those lives you have entrusted to my care and circle of influence. In Jesus name I pray, amen.”

The best thing we can do in life is to seek His wisdom in weighing the amount of time and resources we have to devote to each area of ministry He asks us to step into and for wisdom in determining the right timing for each step we take. God doesn’t show us the whole road at once, so we must always step out with a submissive attitude to His desire to have us continue our direction, redirect our goals, postpone them or stop them all together. James 4:13-17 says “Now listen, you who say “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money. Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, if it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” As it is, you boast and brag.   All such boasting is evil. Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins.” Bearing these verses in mind, unless God makes changes, I step out with the light that has been given to me thus far to run the section of road God has made visible to me.

Given all of these things to think about each day, do you feel overwhelmed? Do you feel like you need a cape and a large “S” on your chest to be a supernatural “Superwoman” or “Superman?”

Superstar

I confess to that and the truth is that we do need supernatural strength and let me encourage you again that God is the supernatural strength that we need to run the road He has mapped out for you and I personally. Philippians 4:13 says “I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.”   This is true no matter where the road of God’s purpose may take us and no matter what the circumstances. It is important to let God give us the heart desire and grace to minister where He leads (Philippians 2:13) and not take an attitude of “legalism”, telling ourself we have to meet certain standards to earn God’s acceptance. This is a lie of Satan. If we believe it, we will wear ourself out by running too much and too fast and for unnecessary reasons. Because of what Christ did on the cross for us, we are deeply loved, completely forgiven and totally accepted by God. He tells us in Matthew 11:28-30 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” God will lead us at the proper pace and in proper balance if we listen to Him. “It is God who works in us to will and act according to His purpose.” (Philippians 2:13)

Not by might

Living the Christian life is all about Father’s grace to us – apart from Him, we can do nothing divinely!!! With Jesus – it’s the supernatural divine life that just makes ya smile!!! 🙂 I’m a gal seeking His supernatural heart for me today with you, dear ones!!! Father tells us:

“For I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on Me and come and pray to Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart.”

Jeremiah 29:11-13

Stay close in heart to Jesus!!! Jesus will bring the divine life to us as this song says here!!! 🙂 WOOOHOOO!!! IT’S GONNA BE EXCITING, IT’S GONNA BE FUN!!! IT’S GONNA BE DIVINE AND AN ETERNAL DIFFERENCE MAKER!!! POWER ON!!! YEP – YA GOT 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.

He Reigns

YYYEEESSS!!! We are gifted with life with heaven with us again today, sweet saints!!! I worship Jesus with you as He is sooo worthy of all our praise and adoration!!! We couldn’t do life without Him!!! I sooo agree with these Words written long ago but still ringing true today:

“Sing to the LORD, all the earth; proclaim His salvation day after day. Declare His glory among the nations, His marvelous deeds among all peoples. For great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; He is to be feared (reverenced) above all gods. For all the gods of the nations are idols, but the LORD made the heavens. Splendor and majesty are before Him; strength and joy are in His dwelling place. Ascribe to the LORD, all you families of nations, ascribe to the LORD the glory due His name; bring an offering and come before Him. Worship the LORD in the splendor of His holiness. Tremble before Him, all the earth! The world is firmly established; it cannot be moved. Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let them say among the nations, “The LORD reigns!”

1 Chronicles 16:23-31

The Source

Our sweet Father reigns for sure and I worship Him today with ya with this song here:

Have a great day, Sonshines!!! Oh that is what ya all are in shining for Jesus!!! 🙂 What is in your heart to offer Him today just because you want to???

Good Beginnings

Hi, dear family of saints!!! One of the things that I have learned in life is that life is full of need to be flexible in life!!! It can mean doing this for awhile and then doing that for awhile and then doing something else for awhile before we go back to doing what we did before or never going back to what was before!!! SHAZAM!!! It makes life sooo divinely interesting just as Saul discovered when Jesus stood before Him and said in so many words “let’s try something new, my son!!!” The thing about it is that Saul was blessed with an even brighter future because he was able to embrace divine change and growth in his life!!! Oh I am sooo thankful that he did because it made a divine difference in my life for one, not to mention the whole world and the kingdom of Jesus being ushered in full soon!!!

Paul and Jesus

Jesus outstretched hands

The lesson we can learn from Saul who became the Apostle Paul is that good cannot begin until the former is let go!!! In Paul’s case, what he was doing before was contrary to Jesus, but sometimes change can move us from what is good to something that is even better!!! Still it is true that to glean the divine future, we have to be willing to follow Jesus there!!!

Necessary endings can be hard for people to create, telling someone of something new if the person is not open to it. Necessary endings can be hard to hear and receive if we do not understand the divine in it!!! Therefore, I want to share some thoughts that I have learned that I think are good things for all of us in life to keep in mind as we journey with Jesus:

  • It is important to end what holds us back from the divine life with Jesus.
  • End things whose time is past.
  • Realize what there is new hope for and let go where there is no hope.
  • Ask yourself what tactics help us to realize the new hope and which ones don’t help.
  • Be comfortable and confident in seeing, negotiating and celebrating endings that may be doors to the future even brighter than we can even imagine!!!
  • Realize that proper endings lead to end of pain, greater growth, personal and business goals reached and better lives.
  • Necessary endings bring hope!!!

Therefore: 1) Choose appropriate necessary endings. 2) Execute them well. 3) Move on to the better results. 4) Claim Jesus’ promise that He can do immeasurably more than we can ask or imagine.

Oh I don’t know what that might speak to you, dear ones and I don’t know of any changes in the works at the present time, but it is always good to stay flexible for Jesus, trusting always His promise to us kids of faith:

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

Jeremiah 29:11

Road to Change

Future:Past

WOOOHOOO!!! With Jesus, He is always working good for us and when He brings change into our lives, we’ve got to “shake” with the divine changes as they happen as this song says here!!! Oh it just makes me smile to always travel with Jesus!!! He always has good divine bright ideas for victory life to happen moving forward!!! Enjoy His presence and love with you wherever you are journeying with Him today!!!

God With Us
