Choices… we all have to make them

CHOICES – People may often misunderstand your goals, your vision, your mission ~ but keep going, keep striving and continue to push, having faith in the specific calling you have been given! (While at the same time being open for Godly accountability and constructive criticism) FB Post by Maverick Hoenig June 3, 2017.

CHOICES

When I read this today the Holy Spirit quickened my spirit. In the area of crisis and trauma care, I see every day where hurting individuals are faced with choices that they weren’t expecting to make or having to live with choices that were made for them.

I recently talked to one of my spiritual sons who was in an accident where a semi-truck made too close a turn and drug him and his motorcycle down the road. It not only caused him to literally being run over and left critically injured and badly broken. He now has to walk with a cane and has severe health issues. He said to me,

“Mom” I can either choose to give up, gripe and B**** about my life. I’ve got to get up and live life to the fullest.”

Throughout his life, I’ve watched this young man battle through many obstacles, some self inflicted and we have had many conversations about his walk with God. He’s still sorting through his life’s purpose and I have no doubt that God is already using him in ways even he can’t see or understand. But, even through his difficult times he has been there for me when I felt like giving up.  He has walked with me through crisis, trauma and hopelessness.

Today happened to be one of those days where I was questioning why things happen and if I should have made different choices.

Our conversation helped steer me and get my mind back to where it should be… on choosing to living and loving myself & others “God’s Way” – not my own.

I’ve got so much to be thankful for. Looking back I see the hard choices I had to make at times, especially when I wondered at the time if they were the right ones.  God has always redeemed even my poor choices into life giving miracles….

“When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered the baby, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world.” John 16:12

Amy did such an amazing job in labor and I am so proud of her!!

Finally, brothers and sisters, 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

Blessings on your day,
Choose Wisely…

Buried Lies – Milky Bath – Cinderella’s Released

Image

In a Dream….

 

The Lord had me go down, swim down into a deep cave under water, and I began to dig out rocks which represented buried lies.  (Years ago I went to a class taught by Missionary Marty Delmon.  She wrote a book “Buried Lies” which goes into great detail about how buried lies affect our souls.)

 

The first rock I found was a rock representing unforgiveness, then fear, doubt, unbelief, abandonment, rejection, hopelessness and finally anger.  As I dug them up it was too much for me to carry alone.  I looked up and saw a man, “Peter” who took off his towel that was wrapped around his waist and jumped into the water.  He brought me down nets for each one of the rocks.  He helped me bring them up to Jesus who was now standing above by the pool of water.

He crushed the first stone of unforgiveness with one hand, the powder disintegrated into the clean pool, turning it into a milky white color.  Jesus said, It’s milk – you are bathing in it and the water immediately turned warm.  (Later I felt as if He were saying it is time to let go and grow up.  “Get over it!” would be what my Pastor would say.

                                                                                                 

Next Jesus took a bat and began to hit each rock out into the depths of eternity never to return.  He knocked every buried lie out of the earth and then I handed Him one last stone – Disappointment.

 

He said, “No more will you be disappointed.  I cherish you, you are my pleasant one, my darling.  Others might misunderstand you, but I know you, I created you, to be strong, strong enough to wait faithfully.  Strong enough to weather the storms of disappointment and to love those that are embittered, even toward you.

 

Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but you are not hopeless, for I have created you for such a special time, just wait.  I WILL to supply and finish every dream I STARTED in you, and if the dream was not from ME, then discard it, don’t count on it for it is only meant to DISTRACT and DISARM you from the tasks I have for you. 

 

I WILL PUT MY STRENGTH IN YOU AND remember those lies are finished, destroyed, diminished and cast into outer darkness.

 

NO MORE shall oppression and grief have a hold on you (ISAIAH 54).  I do not wish to destroy you, but only to build you up in MY most HOLY FAITH.  Receive MY WORD, Receive MY WORDS.  Receive and let your faith flourish.  Look to me and none other.

 

Don’t let the enemy deceive you for I have released you, MY CINDERELLA RELEASED…  Go forth in the name of the LORD and preach MY WORD.  Be strong and of good courage!
