Even though this video shows a guy in supernatural action, we, too, ladies!!! Through faith in Christ Jesus, His Holy Spirit working in us can give us supernatural wisdom, power, gifts, skills and talents that may not only save our own life but make a huge turn around in the lives of others around us in life!!! Jesus is the energy at work in us as His people of faith as this song says here.

Oh sooo thankful we don’t have to pay the price ourselves to have admission to heaven!!! For it is by grace we are saved and not of ourselves so that nobody can boast!!! Praising Jesus with you this day as every good and perfect gift is coming down from Him, the Father of heavenly lights who does not change like shifting shadows!!!

It brings divine life in many ways!!! Happy and smiling with Jesus, too!!! 🙂 It’s gonna be a good day with Jesus!!!

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

 

 

The Divine Story of YOU

Today as I have been pondering our Father’s Word, He leads my contemplation over a statement I recently read that says: “If your story isn’t as meaningful or significant or compelling as you want it to be, you can change it.” I want to encourage your hearts wherever you are in life, dear family, that our Father has created each one of us divinely and when He created us, He saw us as good!!! He tells us we are fearfully and wonderfully made and that we are His workmanship, created in advance for good works that He planned before the beginning of time for us to do. Given that, when we seek Jesus as our Savior from the wages of personal sin that the enemy of this world inflicted upon all people, we are forgiven and forever reconciled into a forever loved relationship with He who created us!!! He has eternal good plans for us as He says:

“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 NIV

So as we ponder about who we are and what our life should all be about, Jesus is the One that we should always turn to for guidance in our lives!!! Nobody or anything else in life is the One who knows the plans of purpose that were laid out when we were created like Jesus!!! In seeking our Father’s will in life, His Word tells us:

“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–His good, pleasing and perfect will.”

Romans 12:2 NIV

“Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take.”

Proverbs 3:6 NLT

“Take delight in the LORD, and He will give you your heart’s desires.”

Psalm 37:4 NLT

As we seek our Father, He gives us the desire of heart to carry out our purpose in life and it is in keeping with all the gifts, talents, skills, abilities and personality, etc. that He put into us when He created us to live out our divine story in this world!!! Jesus invites us to “come to Him” and as we do, our story is divinely written!!!!

Jesus outstretched hands

We see that when we look at those in Biblical times that beckoned to His call, divine life changing things happened…

“Come follow me and I will make you fishers of men.”

Fishers of men

“Let the little children come unto me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.”

Let the Little Children Come to Me

“Come and have breakfast!”

Come have Breakfast

“Come to me, all you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.”

Come to me and rest

  • “Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today.”
  • Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.”
  • “No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them, and I will raise them up on the last day.”
  • “All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.”
  • “Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”

What Will Your Life Story Be?

Whenever someone hears the beckoning of Jesus to come to Him, the divine life happens and the divine story that was intended for your life from the beginning will be what is written!!! Is there somewhere in your life that you want to see changed, family – something you want to do, an issue or circumstance you need help with??? If so, our sweet Jesus is just the one to write His beautiful story upon your life and mine too as we seek Him as this song says here. Perhaps it will be a big life change obvious to many, a small change in life, or maybe just a change of an internal perspective??? Only He knows what we need as we seek Him, but the best resource to seek for victory is always Jesus!!! He is all-wise, all-powerful, all love, all good, all right and all victorious in bringing about the eternal victory plan that has been since the beginning for each of us!!! What is He asking you and I to do and what is He asking you and me to trust Him in??? No matter where we are in life, we can know this, Jesus says “Come as you are.” He sees you and and me and says “it (we) are good!!!” He believes in each one of us to be here where we are for divine reasons!!! Now how awesome is that!!! You and Father with you are awesome and He who has began a good work in us is going to continue it until the day of completion which is the day He returns!!! Now how exciting it is to be part of His divine story for each one of us, uniquely special just as He writes it moment by moment upon our hearts by His Holy Spirit that leads us each one personally!!! Oh I love that continual sovereign guidance He gives to us as His kids and it just makes me smile!!! 🙂 I’m a gal following His beckoning with you in this life and sooo privileged to be doing life with our King of Glory forever!!!

Follow Me

Enjoy the presence of His love with you guiding you personally and His delight in who you are as His royal child forever!!! Now that is a beautiful well-written story of our faith life through His all-sufficient grace for us right there – forever saved by grace for the divine life!!! We have won with Jesus already!!!

Zapped By the Light

I chuckle tonight as I reflect upon my Father’s Word. Today at Christ Community Church, Pastor Joel Walton spoke about the Apostle Paul and how he had a heart for the Gospel of grace through faith that Paul was so zealous to share. That was not always true of his life! I have often been amazed and razzle dazzled by the power of God before in pondering the radical change that Jesus made in the life of the man Paul. Paul at one point was a man on the loose and charging head on into life in one direction – bent on destroying Christians when lo and behold “zap!” He was zapped with the light of Jesus that was sooooo brilliant that it blinded him temporarily and the voice spoke very clearly and powerfully to Paul, so much so that it caused him to turn his life around and charge full speed ahead zealous as before, only this time in the opposite direction as before, this time doing everything he could do to love the Christians, bless them and encourage them! Now how awesome and divine is that and glory be to Jesus for that walking miracle of Paul ‘cuz he has sure made a difference in the lives of a lot of people, including mine! I have chuckled before at the cartoon thought of people watching someone charge full speed one way past them and then seeing that same person having divine revelation that changed their mind, turned their life around and with their zeal for the Lord go charging past them the other way full speed. Hee, hee! I imagine the people standing on the side lines watching and can imagine them thinking “wow” “what got in to him?” The answer is the grace of God! Nothing can change yer mind in life like a divine encounter with Jesus! He is powerfully amazing that way and I am thankful He is so! If yer tired of your life in one way, look upward to heaven, have a little talk with Jesus and ask Him to give you new revelation, new perspective and some joy and zeal to go along with it and He can have ya charged up and ready to go into life! He is known as a life fixer upper for sure! More than one person in this world has a story of God’s grace on their life to tell – in fact, everybody who has had an encounter with Jesus will tell ya the same! His light has been changing lives from generations past and is still doing so today! I have certainly seen the light of Jesus in many ways in my life and I just love to tell about how divine He is! Here is a fun little tune to end our night on by a man who lived awhile ago that got the message and he sings about it here – it just gets me all zealous, clapping and wanting to jump around with excitement about the life changing life of my Jesus! Yeehaw! If ya got Him with ya, rejoice! If ya want Him with ya as your Savior, just tell Him and then join right in with us! Nothing like the light of Him in all the world! Life with Him is an amazing daily exciting adventure! I recommend Him for everybody! Have a great night! Much love to ya all! Hard to not go through a day without a woohoo with Jesus!!!!

Forward Ho!

I love the heart of the Apostle Paul because he was always looking forward.  He was excited about the future and he had his heart set on where his Father was wanting him to go in life! Our God is an adventurous God! He always has a plan in the works and is always working towards it.  Each second of every day in the world is a new one and what is done in each one is never gonna be repeated again. Now how exciting is that! We are making history with each second we live! Each of those seconds is in keeping with my favorite verse that says “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, they are plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Given all of these thoughts, what the Lord said thousands of years ago is true of today as well: “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?” 

Tomorrow I get the keys to a new place to live and as I move towards the end of my night, I am excited about the newness of it all! It was a special find that ends up saving me several hundred every month – a gift! I imagine how I will set up my rooms and I will need to go get a few more furnishings and that will be fun and adventurous to see where the Lord leads me! I have a new desk and I am excited about getting it in place! I am excited to meet my new neighbors and learn about their lives – divine encounters that we are placed next to each other! How interesting is that gonna be! It will be newness to those who visit me, too! Newness of life – it is happening to all of us! What’s new in your life? This I know – Jesus is the same yesterday as He is today as He will be tomorrow and He is trustworthy and constantly faithful as we seek Him to lead us in the best of ways! Forward ho new life with ya! Tomorrow will be a brand new adventure! Woohoo! It’s gonna be exciting! It’s gonna be a surprise and it’s gonna be fun to see how Jesus guides us through it second by second! ‘Til then, even still, we’re in His good hands! He says “Never will I leave ya, never will I forsake ya!” So, all said, good night, rest well and love to ya! Glad we share Jesus!
