❤Humble Post

As I was reflecting on my gifts, abilities, strengths and weaknesses. I realized something that was very humbling.

At one point a couple years ago, when God opened up new doors for ministry and made room for my gifts, I found myself looking for approval. And in all fairness I thought I had been delivered from it!

I realized I was wanting to be connected to people of whom I thought were more spiritual or well known, so that I might be seen with them.

I found myself looking for acceptance with my writing and thought if I was published by certain ministries, I would be recognized as someone who had a voice in that community.

One day in prayer, as I was asking God to search my heart, he whispered,
“why do you care more about what others think than what I think”–ouch–

It went into a soul searching adventure, where God begin to show me that I was looking for approval and acceptance among man. God reminded me that all things, and people are not as they appear. He also reminded me that it only mattered what HE thought about me. Why wasnt HIS opinion the one I cared the most about?

You see, God has ALREADY approved of me!
(And you!)
Mans acceptance isnt necessary!

I was deeply grieved and humbled by His words of correction. It made me take a step back and truly look at my motives and my heart, with everything I was connected to.

I removed myself from any other ministry, and focused on my own.
I also realized I had put myself in a box!

I had been trying to fit myself into one particular area of my gifting, but God showed me I have many gifts. I wasnt to limit Him by only focusing on one gift He had given me.

Friends, so many times we can limit God by only focusing on one area of gifting. If you are prophetic, you are not only prophetic. If you are a teacher, you are not only a teacher. It applies to every gift.

Search your heart. Make sure you are connected to people and Ministries because you’re supposed to be, not because you want to be seen by man.
And please dont put yourself in a box!

If we dont take correction and humble ourselves. God will do it for us. Friends, it can be a slippery slope.
Keep your heart pure before the Lord. As long as you have HIS approval, no one else, no matter how big will ever matter!

The Promises of God Are Close At Hand🌈

Today while driving up my street, I saw this amazing view. I stopped in the middle of the road to capture it. I couldn’t help but see a prophetic picture the minute I zoomed in on it.

I knew it was a promise. It looks like an Angel blowing rainbows. As I prayed into it I heard,
“The promises of God are close at hand.”

Friends, the winds of change have blown. Gods promises are yes and Amen. I feel this photo is very symbolic of the winds of change blowing and the promises of God being released with the help of Angelic activity. Its rare we get to see them in action. But when we do, it truly is beautiful.

I know this has been such a dry hard season, for so many. I have found myself many times asking God, “what are you doing?” Its as if heaven has been silent for a season, although I know He is always near.

I felt such a sense of hope and expectation as I witnessed this in our California sky. Friends, we are in a new season literally and spiritually. I do want you to get your hopes up. I do want you to be expectant. I do want you to know that God is on the throne, and although you may not understand the “why” to every situation, you can trust that God is faithful, and ALWAYS keeps His promises.

So let this amazing prophetic sky, reveal the heart of the Father to you. Be assured in knowing, the winds of change ARE HERE and the promises of God are Close At Hand!

⛸TRADE YOUR WALKING SHOES FOR ROLLERSKATES.

I love how God speaks to me. Today, I went for a walk on a new path. It was nice and no one was on it. The path was newly paved so it was smooth and free of debris.

As I was walking, I began thinking about my exercise and how I wanted to do something new, to speed up my progress.

Immediately I was reminded of my Rollerskates that I havnt worn in years!

I heard, ” Trade your walking shoes for Rollerskates.”

I knew God was speaking to me about this new season and doing things differently. Not just in the natural but also in the spirit.

I also knew that by doing things differently, there would be an accleration to my efforts.

On average, a person weighing 180lbs burns about 100 calories per hour walking, whereas roller skating burns about 480 in the same hour!

Talk about multiplying your efforts!

Friends, this truly is a new season of multiplication and accleration. But it will require you to do things differently. To think differently, and look for new opportunities.

Multiplication, and accleration only comes when YOU do your part. You cant just sit back and wait for God to do something. It requires, obedience and work.

But…if you’re ready to do that, then it’s time to trade your walking shoes in for Rollerskates!

Amos 9 13-15 “Yes indeed, it won’t be long now.” God’s Decree.

“Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won’t be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once—and everywhere you look, blessings!

🔥Breaking Up Religious Atmospheres.

This morning while getting dressed, I had an unexpected vision, not like anything I have ever had before.

I saw myself invited to a women’s ministry as the speaker. The room was thick with complacency and just a feeling of, “this is how we do things.” I noticed how all the women seemed to know each other as I observed from the back room. I also sensed no true expectation of a move of God but just another, “encouraging meeting.” When I got up to speak, I felt the room was thick with complacency and routine.
My heart was grieved.

I knew that all these women loved God, but had gotten VERY comfortable with how things were. I began by asking how many had never been there before, a couple ladies in the back raised their hands. I then asked, “of the women here how many come here every month?” Nearly every woman raised their hand. I then asked, “for those of you who come every month, how many of you sit in the same spot with the same people every month?” They all raised their hands.

I then felt the holy spirit on me and I began to ask all the women to move to a different seat. I asked that the new people come to the front and everyone else find another seat. They looked confused at first, so I repeated it. They reluctantly did it. After they were finished moving, I asked how many of them were uncomfortable? Nearly all of them raised their hands. I replied, “Good, God wants to do a work in you.” I then asked, “for those of you that are uncomfortable, how many of you are mad that you had to move?” quite a few of them raised their hands. I replied, “Good, God REALLY wants to do a work in you.”

Their religious routine had be disrupted and the atmosphere shifted!

Now there was a feeling of expectancy, because they didnt know what to expect! It shook them up and God could now move in the meeting.-End of Vision

**I remember thinking, as I saw the frustration on their faces,

“I am not here for you to like me, I am here to set you free.”

It was so vivid and real, I could see all the details and hear all the chatter, and even feel the atmosphere. I begin praying into it and felt very strongly that God is about to do a mighty work in the hearts of those who are stuck in a religious routine and He is going to use many of us to shake up those religious systems!

Many of you will be called into new places just like this and God will use you mightily to change the atmosphere to make room for His presence. These people love God and want a move of God, but they have got so caught up in routine that they don’t know how to break out of it. God is going to use many of you to SHIFT these atmospheres to release the Glory of God in their midst.

Take heed, while most places you enter, you will be received well.

There will still be a few leaders that will be angered by the idea of change. But your purpose was not for them, but rather the ones sitting in the seats listening. There will be an awakening, amongst them and you will have opened the prison doors for these people. They will now be able to move into the things that God has for them!

God is moving and He is asking, “Who will go for me?”
Isaiah 6:8

Are You A Person Of Integrity?

I am sure most of you would proudly say, “yes, I have intregrity and I honor my word, if I say I am going to do something I do it.” But do most of you REALLY?

I mean, I am sure you are great at honoring your word to others, even to the point of over extending yourself. But what about keeping the promises you make to yourself?

Ouch…let me share with you what God has been speaking to me about. You see, I’m like most of you, If I say I am going to do something for someone, I do my best to honor that. However, when it comes to keeping promises to myself, I have often fell short. I tell myself, “I am going to work out this Monday.” “I am going to start eating healthier this month.”
“I am going to write a book.” “I am going to…..”

You get the idea. What things have you told yourself you are going to do, but never followed through on?

The more you honor yourself, the more you understand how to give honor to others. The more committed you are to your own promises, the more consistency you will begin to create in your life. Not only is consistency a by product of honoring your own word, but you will start to have more confidence, and you will be able to make clear decisions without indecisiveness.

So, I encourage you today, to truly seek your own heart and if you struggle with being a promise keeper to yourself that you ask God to help you. He wants you to be a person of excellence in every area. Begin today, by evaluating the things you have said you would do, are they still a priority?

If so, then do your best to honor your word and start doing the things you told yourself you would do. Your destiny is counting on you finishing well.

BUT ARE YOU PREPARED TO ACCELERATE?

The definition of accelerate is, to speed up, move faster, increase speed. We have heard countless words about God accelerating us in this season, and I believe this to be true as well. However, I want to challenge you. ARE YOU READY?? I mean REALLY ready??

So many of us, when we hear that word of God accelerating us, we rejoice, we get excited we praise God and we receive it by faith.

But are you ready?

Do you really grasp what that means? Many words have been attached to the scripture, Amos 9:13-14. “Yes indeed, it won’t be long now.” GOD’s Decree.Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won’t be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once—and everywhere you look, blessings! Blessings like wine pouring off the mountains and hills. I’ll make everything right again for my people Israel:

We always focus on the blessing part, but lets focus on this part, ‘“Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won’t be able to keep up.”

Did you catch that last part, “You wont be able to keep up?”

You see God can accelerate us, but we have to prepare ourselves in advance for that acceleration. God does His part, but expects us to do ours. Are you ready to receive the blessings? Of course you are. We all are! But are you prepared, mentally, spiritually, and PHYSICALLY. If God were to open amazing opportunities for you, could you keep up? The word says, it will be so fast your head will swim. That means we must be prepared mentally. But God has given me a sense of urgency for the Body, literally the physical body as well as the Church.

IT IS TIME TO PREPARE YOUR BODY. It is time to get healthy, so that you can be ready for the acceleration. If I get on the treadmill and start walking and stay at that pace I am fine. However, if I (accelerate) the speed suddenly and start running, how long can I do it? Well it depends on how much I have prepared my body. I might be able to keep that pace, or I might get so winded I have to stop, because its just too fast for what I can handle at the time. Or worst yet, I can seriously injure myself, due to lack of training.

The Word says, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 19 Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 You were bought with a price, therefore honor God with your bodies.”

God begin to convict me of this! This body is a loaner. If I am to do all that God has called me to do, then I need to do my best to feed it healthy and keep it healthy. It grieves my heart that so many people are sick because of their own destructive behaviors of overeating.

We have indulged the flesh for so long and it is, “socially acceptable.” I mean everything we do revolves around food. We have made food an IDOL. We can’t do this anymore. Friends, life is short, and God is indeed moving things quickly. But I would hate for our destiny to be cut short, because we can’t keep up, due to our own selfish indulgences and neglect.

Don’t trade your inheritance for a bowl of soup.
Genesis 25:29-34
So again, I ask you. “ARE YOU REALLY READY FOR ACCLERATION?”

🌞TAKING RESPONSIBILTY

If we are brutally honest with ourselves, we have to admit that we make time for things we want to make time for. We spend money on things that have value to us.

I remember years ago a friend laughing at me for spending $5 on a Starbucks Coffee. She on the other hand could justify spending $4 on a pack of cigarettes. I wouldn’t give 2cents for a cigarette let alone $4!

But we spent our money on what we found value in. Likewise, we will also invest our time into things that are important to us.–We all have the same 24hrs in a day.

If I choose not to do my workout, its not because I didn’t have time. I have to take responsibility and say. “It wasn’t a priority”. –The same goes for our food choices. We all choose what we put in our bodies.

Friends, truth is many of us are overweight physically, but underweight spiritually. Perhaps God is teaching us to rely on Him for comfort, rather than food.

As we continue to seek God spiritually, I believe He will be able to fill that void for food. Be encouraged friends we are all in this together. God is doing a work in all of us. But we must take responsibility for our health if we want to see change:)

LIVING A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE IS AS MUCH A SPIRITUAL DISCIPLINE AS IT IS A PHYSICAL ONE.

This is so very true. We have heard the sayings, “What you eat in private you wear in public.” All of us have junk, things we struggle with. Some people are addicted to alcohol or drugs sex or money. Most of which can be hidden from others. However, when you have a food addiction the world knows it. There is no hiding it, it shows up every where on your body.

Now I have struggled with my own demons of food for years. But as God has taken me on this fitness journey he is teaching me to trust in Him for all my emotional and physical needs. That I am to rely on Him and not food for comfort.

Do I still struggle? Of course. Am I still paying for things I did to my body? Yes. But I cannot undo what I did, I can only try to improve upon the person I am today.

I am learning that eating healthy is as much a spiritual discipline as it is a physical one. We have to learn self control in all things regarding the flesh.
But we know Gods Word tells us that we have all been given a spirit of self control 2Timothy 1:7 We all have a choice as to whether or not we exercise that gift.

Friends, God does not care how much you weigh, but He does care about your health. He cares about your emotions and your mental health. When we allow ourselves to abuse our bodies, to the point of causing physical harm and infirmities, Ie. High Blood pressure, diabetes, lack of mobility all directly related to our lifestyle. He is concerned. ( I am not speaking of people born with these ailments, but rather have inflicted them on themselves.) When we are overweight this affects everything in our lives.

Perhaps God is wanting to take you on a journey to wellness. Allow Him to speak into your life and show you the areas you need work on. If we truly want ALL that God is requiring of us, then we are required to do our part. The first step is to be obedient in the small things. Remember God loves you too much to let you stay where you are. Be blessed my friends.
