Captivated By Love

Ladies!!! Oh an interesting cause to check out for sure in this video here that Sam Samy shares:

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!!!

Looking Up

New day greetings, precious saints of faith!!! Today as I turn to Father’s Word, I am moved in gratitude that it is available on our mobile phones these days (got the app?) and the holy book (the Bible) can also be carried along with us in all of life!!! It is God’s love letter to us and Father says this about it:

“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,”

2 Timothy 3:16

Here is a song that speaks of the blessings of God’s Word to us as His beloved people of faith:

https://g.co/kgs/0W1WNN

Oh nothing blesses my heart more than the voice of my Father!!! I need Him always with me as shared live here and He always is with us dear ones of faith!!! Thru faith, we are forever sealed to Him and nothing can snatch us from His love!!! His promise to us is “never will I leave you nor forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5) As we draw close to Him, He is always there for us and we can approach His throne of grace with confidence to find mercy and grace to help us in our times of need. Now how awesome is He!!! Oh let us not miss out on the greatest gift of all dear ones of faith – time with our beloved Maker who IS love and everything good!!! He created us to enjoy relationship with Him and vice versa forever so let us make priority the priority of seeking Him in life!!!! Blessed are we and will be forever in seeking first His kingdom and His righteousness and then all heavenly things shall be added unto us!!! Proud of ya for seeking Jesus!!! What is His Spirit speaking to you today through His Word??? “If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.”
James 1:5

Father’s Grace Breaks Bondage

When the enemy rattles his chains of bondage at you, there is no need to be bound by them, prized possession of our Father!!! Jesus paid the price of His life on the cross so the enemy has no power over you!!! When he taunts you with thoughts of fear or anxiety or can’t do or it can’t be done, just remind him that you can do all things thru Christ who gives you strength!!! Not by your might, power or strength, but by His Spirit that gives you your every breath is how you live in Him as a new creation!!! All things are possible with God with you as His one of faith!!! You will receive power when His Holy Spirit comes upon you!!! If He calls your heart to a task, He will give you what you need to conquer it!!!

chain-of-failure

Reminding the enemy and yourself of this victory won for you, let it turn your heart to being full of His joy that He desires to fill you with completely!!! Cast cares on He who loves you perfectly with unfailing and unconditional love because He cares for you!!! Give Him thanks for your life and blessings as you pray and His peace that transcends all understanding will guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus!!! HOOORRRAAAHHH!!! Keep on winning over the enemy of doubt and fear with the joy of the Lord as your strength as this song says here.

jesus-is-my-joy

You make Father’s life special and that is why He created you!!! It is in accordance to His good pleasure and will to have you as a member of His royal kingdom family!!! Happy and smiling is Father’s heart for you today!!! 😊🙏💪

“God decided in advance to adopt us into His own family by bringing us to Himself through Jesus Christ. This is what He wanted to do, and it gave Him great pleasure.”

Ephesians 1:5NLT

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!!!

Balancing Change in Life

Awesome new day greetings, precious saints!!! Yesterday, I wrote about how Father paces our lives just right as we look to Him and in recap, I wrote:

“As spiritual athletes or runners of the “cross” road, we may be asked to speed up temporarily or slow down at times in order to get us through certain places. God knows in His wisdom that an appropriate pace is important for long-term running!!!” 

run-for-the-prize

Here in Idaho, it is a new season of year with all of its beautiful color all around!!!

fall-road

In reflecting upon that, as people, we have different seasons in life as well. For example: God may adjust our pace of running with the different seasons of our life, too. But even in the winter years of retirement age, running does not have to stop. Many people find that no longer having an employer opens new opportunities to travel for the Lord and participate in missions around the world, while others find their new availability provides great opportunity to help their grown children and impact their grandchildren for the Lord. Some give more time to their church, spend more time praying or lend a hand to the community, maybe getting involved in politics to make a difference for Christ. A successful Hollywood movie star decided at age 69 to take a big step politically and ended up doing his greatest work in life – being one of America’s greatest Presidents for two terms. His name was Ronald Reagan, a man of great Christian faith. Remember him and other older saints and let us always reflect upon the possibility that our greatest work may still be ahead of us and even now. Advanced age doesn’t mean the bearing of fruit is done.

God has a purpose for His people as long as they have life on earth and that includes you and me, too, dear ones!!! I WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU today, that YOU are always important!!! Oh let us never think of our lives as being without purpose to our Father even if life changes in where we are, when we are there or what we are called to do!!! WOOOHOOO!!! LIFE IS ALWAYS A DIVINE ADVENTURE WITH JESUS!!! JESUS JUST MAKES US SMILE!!!

I Am WIth You Always

Running the road of God’s purpose, we as spiritual athletes need to be balanced properly, upright and in rhythm with God’s leading. A physical runner watches the road before him carefully, not wanting to fall. He or she places one foot down and then the other, moving forward on the path ahead. Likewise, the spiritual athlete moves ahead through the day as he or she listens to God’s leading, stepping into one area of ministry then another. The spiritual athlete seeks to run upright and in good form to bring glory to God in every step.

Sometimes we step a little farther to the right or left into a specific area of ministry as the road before us necessitates, but all the time, we strive to remain on the road of God’s purpose. An example would be spending more time than we normally would to sit with an ill family member or devote more ministry time to the church one week a year to help with the weeklong vacation bible school. Perhaps it is getting away from all other areas of ministry for a weekend with your spouse to spend some time resting and ministering to each other or God may call you aside for an extended time of prayer, fasting, study and reflection. 

Jesus Reaching Out To US

In addition to the common purposes we share with other runners (believers) of the “cross” road, I am going to be sharing over the next few days a list of generalized areas of ministry that each of us individually will typically step in and out of in the course of our life.   Not all runners will experience all areas and I have not listed them in any order of priority because I believe God changes our priorities from day to day. God is the exception to listing an order of priority – God says in Exodus 20:3 “Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” Taking the time to develop a relationship with God, worshiping, praying, studying His Word and listening to God is “Job #1 for the spiritual athlete.”  He is  worthy of all praise and the sacrifice of all our lives as long as we have breath!!! HOOORRRAAAHHH!!! TO THAT I SAY AS THIS SONG SAYS HERE “YYYEEESSS LORD, WORK THRU US EACH ONE TO BUILD YOUR KINGDOM HERE ON EARTH!!! OH HOW WE WANT TO SEE YOU HIGH AND LIFTED UP AS THIS SONG SAYS HERE!!!
