Semi-Safe

SEMI-SAFE!

I was traveling along a winding country rode and came across a semi-truck that had missed a curve and run head on into a farmer’s field.  The wheels of the cab of the truck was buried in soft sand and he was stuck. I stopped and asked the driver who was sitting on the back of the container if he was ok?  He said, yes. He had a cooler with water and some snacks. We were in the middle of nowhere, but he did have a cell phone and told me a wrecker was on the way. I felt like he was Semi-Safe!

We can all get going too fast sometimes especially when we are carrying a heavy load. We feel certain we can make the curve, but the load continues in the direction it is going if we don’t slow down enough for some of the unanticipated curves. Keeping watch for the signs and listening to God’s voice is so important!

This brings me to the message from the Lord I’ve written out in the blog below: Please feel free to share your comments about what the Lord is speaking to you in this hour and to share my blog or newsletter with others who are feeling hopeless or discouraged.

I AM, THE STRAIGHT (MOST HIGH) WAY, &
I AM COMING!

(Prophetic Word from the Lord)

A voice of one calling: “In the wilderness prepare the way for the Lord; make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Isaiah 40:3

Woman in the Mirror

Woman in the Mirror

Image

“Who do you believe you are?”

She was asked this question recently and the answers varied from last week.

“I’m a mother, grandmother who is alone, sad, tired, fat, homeless and disillusioned.”

“Why do you believe that?”

“Why? Because that is what I think others see. Therefore, I believe that is who I am.”

“Why do you allow what you “think” others “assume or see” to be the truth?”

“Because that is what we do isn’t it? We believe what we assume to be true.?”

“Does this make it true?”

“I don’t know, I guess it is what you choose to believe.”

“Who does God say you are? He is the one that brought you here.”

“Sometimes I don’t hear God.”

“Why is that?”

“Because I don’t listen to Him. I don’t make time for Him.  I would rather choose to listen to what I think others think.”

“Isn’t that destructive?” 

“Of course it is destructive. And that is what makes me think I am alone, tired, worn, homeless and disillusioned. It is absolutely stupid to look into the mirror and talk to myself like this!”

You should be saying what your Abba Father says about you.

He calls you, “His Cinderella Released, His Mighty Girl, His Woman on a Mission!”

You are full of His grace, glory and gumption!

He says, “You are  totally healed, delivered, set free and are able to do exceedingly, abundantly above anything you could ever hope for or imagine.”

He also says, “His plans for you are for good and not for evil and that He has a seat for you in heavenly places with Him.”

He is preparing a place for you to come for eternity and He has never ever lied to you or told you anything that has not occurred or come to pass.  He says, “You are beautiful and whatever and whoever you are is good enough for Him and that He will never ever leave or forsake you.”

He also says,

“Darling daughter please just come spend time with me.  Don’t talk down about yourself or others.  Don’t waste time, that is going to just take you down and destroy you.  It is time to arise and be about my business.  You just need to love others.  Forget about what they do.”

Others are doing what you do; spending too much time in the mirror.  You will never see yourself as God sees you.

He is sitting right there beside you and will listen to you whenever you want Him to listen.  Jesus is always praying for you.

He hears your prayers when you pray in faith, believing in what you do not see!  Stop looking in the mirror and look for Him. He is here, right beside you.  He’s not in the mirror… He’s at your side looking at you.

He says, Turn to Me, look at Me my darling daughter, look at Me, look to Me, rest in Me My darling daughter rest.  I am here and will carry you, get dressed!

Don’t be the Woman in the Mirror… Be the Woman You Were Created to Be By Me!

Yes, I think I will… get dressed!

You Are One of God’s Treasures,

Rotten Tomatoes or Not???

Rotten tomato.jpg

What is wrong with this picture?

The photo above is a tomato that has been sitting out on the counter for at minimum 3+ weeks.. I don’t know how long it was in the store… Fresh Produce?? Nutritious?? Rotten Tomato or Not?? Just saying???

When I was growing up my folks made me pick through tomatoes daily because they would begin to rot so fast. They would keep boxes of green and ripening tomatoes in a cooler set at a special temperature to keep them from going bad.

Vine ripe tomatoes are special in the fact that they are picked off the vine when they are ripe. They should never be put through any wash or gasing to preserve them because this process will tear them up and with all of the talk today about healthy eating and what gasing and preservatives do to our bodies, I try to only buy fresh fruit and produce that have been spared this process.

So it is with our spiritual life. Not everything or everyone that looks good on the outside means they are healthy or nutritious on the inside.

Many times I’m so tempted to only let others see the “pretty” side of me and would be horrified to let some of the hidden secrets that are on my inside be revealed or digested by others. At times like this I retreat, isolate or just wind up sitting on a shelf or counter kind’ve like the tomato.

But, as a Christian I know God will help me using circumstances or others sort through my rotteness. If I am willing to allow Him to set me free, He delivers me from the pain and effects that these hidden sins have on me, and gently washes me. God is always faithful to help me ripen and mature just like those vine ripe tomatoes that I love so much!

Spiritual Abortion An Appeal To Heaven

Embroidery.jpg
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your
book before one of them came to be. Psalm 139: 13-16
The enemy of God, Satan wants you to keep your eyes on the death, destruction and disappointments…. but I say, that God says, He is the ruler of the heavens and He has aborted Satan’s plans for the earth.

Bike Woman

“Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith.” 1 Pet. 5:8-9
Father, thank you for your loving kindness, your mercy, your goodness and love. Thank you for creating the earth and me and thank you for placing me in the family line that fulfills the plans and purposes you desire. Please help my children, grandchildren and lineage to come to all fulfill the purposes you have designed for them. I believe that you created everything living, and there is a realm and heavenly home and a new earth that as your daughter I will live and dwell in forever.
kids
LORD GOD JEHOVAH, I stand in agreement with your words that you have ordained a plan for each one of us and that if we will hold firm to you, that you are faithful to perfect that plan and purpose which will not only bring you glory but will bring plenty of fruitfulness in our lives.
I thank you that you have overcome the enemy and abort his plans, attacks and assignments. I thank you that no weapon formed against us will prosper and great shall be our Shalom and that shall rest on our children and their children to come.
I thank you that YOU inside of me is GREATER than the works of the flesh and the enemy that wage warfare against our souls.

Carved Vessel

I bless your Holy name. I plead the precious blood of Yeshua over myself and my family. I ask you to clean my spirit and make me a vessel of honor for you. I pray that I will not fear the enemy and that your joy will be my strength.
You surround me with your angels in the heavenlies and I declare this day that I believe and have faith in you alone. There are no other gods that I pray to or form allegiance to. I ask that you would sever all ungodly soul and spiritual ties that would keep me from declaring and walking in your divine power, authority and unconditional love.
No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; and every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their vindication is from Me,” declares the Lord.” Is. 54:17
BW Vultue
I pray that you would break off any addictions, judgments, generational curses over me and that the enemy would not have an open door or foot hold in any place in my life. I repent of those things I’ve willingly or unwillingly allowed into my eyegate, eargate or mouthgate that would be a hindrance or open gate for the enemy to come in and have a foot hold to abort your plans and purposes for creating me.
You created me independant of the world and it’s resources. I thank you that I am dependant on you for my provision, protection, health and well being. You promise that you will never leave or forsake us or see your children begging for food. I thank you that I have a place to live, eat, rest and pray without ceasing. You are My King and I am your daughter that loves you. I ask that you touch my heart and spirit and open up the capacity to live, laugh and love in a greater way each day.
“No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.” 1 Cor. 10:13
I pray that as the world falls off of me, that your anointing grows and as I walk down the road, ride in my car, enter other’s dwelling places, worship areas, and in the market place that your Shekinah glory would bring salvation, deliverance and healing to those that I touch or look at.
Umbrella 1
Lord, help me to grow in your Word and to understand what I read. I pray that in the evenings when I sleep that you would speak to me through dreams and as I go throughout my day that visions would appear as I am in quiet time and communion with you.
“Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.” 1 Tim. 6:12
Lord, I pray to become a giver and that you would place wealth in my hands that I might bless others. I pray that you would provide and keep me humble in all of my affairs and opportunities to write, speak, pray, intercede and help others.
“Do not be overcome with evil, but overcome evil with good.” Rom. 12:21
Holy Spirit, I long to know you better and to be sensitive to your voice. I repent for ignoring you or quenching you so many times when I failed to hear your voice and obey.
“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Cor. 15:57
Jesus, I acknowlege that you died for my sins, and you are always making intercession for me in the heavenlies. Your kindness, ability to disciple and love others is beyond my ability, however I do want to be your hands and your feet in this world that you gave your life for. I thank you that you experienced such pain and suffering for me to walk in health and freedom from the sins that so easily come my way and are in my fallen nature. But, you have redeemed me and I am now a new creature ready for each new moment and divine appointment.
“Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.” Matt. 18:18-19
 Nevertheless
“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust. Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart…” Ps. 91:1-4

“Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.  Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” Eph. 6:11-17

Fathers, We Need You! You are Soul Care Providers

I was sitting in a coffee shop thinking about Father’s Day and asking God what He wanted me to share.  There have been many influential fathers in my lives. Pictured above and below are just a few of some of the ones I know personally.

While I was writing I was privy to a conversation of a young man talking about the soon coming birth of his son. He described it, like being in the midst of a hurricane that is soon approaching.”

He went on to basically describe, “His newfound fatherhood is like a flurry of preparing for an uncontrollable event that he knew would radically change his life forever.”

He added, “My baby boy is running around inside my wife’s belly kicking and screaming. He is coming… and he will be here soon!” 

Then a few weeks ago this man’s unborn son went from kicking and lots of active movement in his mother’s womb to no activity and no respiratory score. Thankfully, after testing and waiting, they found out the baby is fine. I know this must have been especially scary, since this couple has been married for over 14 years and this is their first pregnancy.

He was talking with a couple about helping build non-profit sustainability programs  in Alaska. From their conversation I believe he will make a great dad and provider.

I love how the Lord will seat people right next to you who have the same heart and passion for souls and discipleship. I believe this confirms what God is calling us as believers to do in this hour.  I call these individuals Soul Care Providers.

Fatherhood

I’ve known many mothers and fathers who have gone through trials and tribulations regarding their children. Whatever the storm, God has it under control.

“Jesus is walking through the storm to get to your boat.” Cynthia Pettis

In 1993 I went to work for a young man and his wife who had waited over a decade for their first son. It was such a blessing when this little boy was born! This family now has three grown children and they have been such a model for other parents as well as an example of the Father’s love for His children.

This picture on the left is of Johnny Blue Craig Sr. and his son Johnny Blue Jr. This picture was  created for a prepaid phone card and a promotional ad for a Fatherhood Campaign. There is only a short window of time we have as parents and especially fathers to influence the next generation. The picture on the right is Johnny Blue, April and their three grown children.

We need fathers to come to the revelation that you become a father when life is conceived and you are a “father and soul care provider” even before your baby arrives.

Baggs produce

My father, and  my four sons; Colt, Chris, Maverick & Gary Jr.

Soul Care Providers ~ Fathers we need you desperately…

So, it is in the case of
hurricanes, tsunamis,
crisis, trauma and lost souls.

Storms of life come suddenly and how can we prepare
and provide soul care without the fathers who love the Father of all Fathers?

Fathers, Soul Care Providers, We Need You!

Onward Christian Soldiers
Onward Christian soldiers
Marching as to war
With the cross of Jesus
Going on before
Onward then, ye people
Join our happy throng
Blend with ours your voices
In our triumph song
Christ the royal master
Leads against the foe
Forward into battle
See His banners go
Crowns and Thrones may perish
Kingdoms rise and wane
But the cross of Jesus
Constant will remain

You can’t stop lava from Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano with water, bombs or walls. Here’s why. Read Entire Article

You can't stop lava flow.jpg

There is a lava flow in Hawaii that isn’t stopping. The wind blew an avalanche of rocks into the road today. The Lord said, “The earth is crying out in travail, it is praising a God that can’t be stopped.

God created mankind to praise and worship him. Let your soul and spirit cry out in travail, cry out in praise and overcome the darkness wherever you go – wherever your feet may tread.

Psalm 33

Sing joyfully to the Lord, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him.
Praise the Lord with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre.

Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.

For the word of the Lord is right and true; he is faithful in all he does.

The Lord loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love.

By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth. He gathers the waters of the sea into jars; he puts the deep into storehouses.

Let all the earth fear the Lord; let all the people of the world revere him
For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood firm.

The Lord foils the plans of the nations; he thwarts the purposes of the peoples.

But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever,
the purposes of his heart through all generations.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people he chose for his inheritance.

From heaven the Lord looks down and sees all mankind;
from his dwelling place he watches all who live on earth—
he who forms the hearts of all, who considers everything they do.

No king is saved by the size of his army; no warrior escapes by his great strength
A horse is a vain hope for deliverance; despite all its great strength it cannot save.
But the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear him,
on those whose hope is in his unfailing love, to deliver them from death
and keep them alive in famine.

We wait in hope for the Lord; he is our help and our shield.

In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name.

May your unfailing love be with us, Lord, even as we put our hope in you.

Road Rocks

God sent His Son, the Holy One of Israel, Yeshua (Jesus) to redeem mankind from their sins and from the evil one. He will deliver those who will follow Him from the darkness and into His marvelous light!

The Lord God says,

“You who are His voice, You who are His people, You who are His followers and disciples, go now into all the earth and declare His salvation, deliverance and healing to those who are lost and broken and it is I who will deliver them!

Don’t let a rock, a mountain, a volcano, a wind, or an earthquake cry out for you!”

Solid Rock Road Sign

The Lord is my solid rock,
    my fortress, my rescuer.
My God is my rock—
I take refuge in him!—
        he’s my shield,
        my salvation’s strength,
        my place of safety.

Psalm 18:2

And Jesus headed to Jericho with his disciples, and met Zaccheas the tax collector and told a parable about sowing and reaping and the rewards for those who hold back; giving a charge to those servants to

OCCUPY UNTIL I COME! (Luke 19:13)

And as He told the disciples where to get a Colt for him to ride on those who were following him began to cry out in praise.

Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest.

And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy disciples.

And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.

And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it,

Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes.
Luke 19:38-42

“We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.” Romans 8:22

As we praise, worship and intercede for the nations the Lord is faithful to inhabit the praises of His people.

We know as trouble and difficulties arise, this is a call for God’s people to stand firm and Occupy until He comes again.

Christmas DIY Projects You Can Do With Your Kids!

 

Projects to do with your kids

    Article from MillionsofMiles.com

*Have your kids pick out a couple of outgrown outfits and then take them to their school’s resource center.  Often, they use extra outfits when kids have an emergency or can send home with kids in crisis.

*Stock up on hats, gloves and socks the next time you see them on sale and drop them off at a local homeless shelter.

*Make some homemade dog treats and take to a local animal shelter.

*Take a handful of quarters and a roll of tape and stick the quarters on gumball machines all over town.  Or put the quarters inside the coin return on a video game machine.  You will totally make a child’s day!

*Take your outgrown coats to a local shelter.

*Dress up your kids in their Christmas finery and go share some hugs at a nursing home.  We usually take bananas to pass out (but check with the nurses first!).  So many nursing home residents never get visitors and some kids walking around really changes the energy!

*Find a need and meet it.  We are all on social media and see need daily.  Did a friend’s house burn down? Take supplies.  Someone sick? Take a meal.

*Bake cookies together and deliver to the fire station or police station.

*On garbage day in your neighborhood, have the kids pull everyone’s garbage cans back to their houses.

*On the last day of school before Christmas break, purchase a school supply pack for a kid who would otherwise not be able to go to school and talk about what a privilege it is to go to school!

*Call up a single mom and offer to babysit her children so she can go Christmas shopping.  Fun play date for the kids, plus a much needed break for a mom.

*Many community organizations have Christmas parties/dinners for the less fortunate.  Call one and ask if you and your children can be on table cleanup duty.  Even the youngest kids can carry plates and napkins to the trash can!

*Get out the markers, crayons and paper and make homemade cards or just have the kids color pretty pictures.  Drop them off at a rehabilitation center or hospital.

*Put together a care package for a missionary or member of the military.

*Deliver a Christmas tree to a family in need or take one to an assisted living or nursing home facility.

*We all know an area where homeless people tend to always be- maybe outside a certain building or at the end of an exit ramp.  Make a bag of food (protein bars, pop top canned food, peanut butter and crackers, dried fruit, nuts, etc.) and keep it in the car until you find a person who needs it.

*Take rawhides to the animal shelter.  Cold, winter days are long and little doggies could use something to help them pass the day.  Kids also love to play with animals!

*Find an area in town that is dirty and littered and clean it up!

*Sponsor a Child and write a Christmas letter to that child.

*School supplies are often on sale around this time of the year or get put in bargain bins for people to use as stocking stuffers.  Load up on these and send them to school with your kid.  Teachers spend way too much of their own money on classroom supplies and this would free up some extra income for them around the holiday.

*Adopt a Salvation Army angel or pick up a food angel at your local grocery store to provide a Christmas meal to a family in need. Shop together as a family.

*Send a phone card to a soldier so that they can call their family for Christmas.

*Have your kids do something nice for you or for each other.  Clean a brother’s room, make a sister’s bed, help mom or dad wash the dishes.

*Drop baby supplies (diapers, wipes, formula) off at a crisis pregnancy center.  Most of these places also take used baby clothes and equipment to help out new moms if you’ve got baby items lying around your are no longer using.

*Play games with a purpose!  Send your kids to www.freerice.com and let them play for a while.  They learn by playing trivia games and correct answers send rice to feed hungry people around the world.

*Go through the cabinets and send canned goods to a food pantry or backpack program.

*Take a giant can of ground coffee beans (and some cookies!) to a homeless shelter.

*Buy a few decks of cards or some games that can be played in bed and take them to a children’s hospital.

*Give the kids a broom and put them to work sweeping the porches of the widows and the elderly in the neighborhood.

*Take crayons and coloring books to the waiting room at the hospital.

*Cover pine cones in peanut butter and bird seed and take care of the wildlife in your backyard for the winter.

*Ask your kids’ teachers if any students in the class are in need of books at their house.  Have your kids pick out a few they no longer need and send them to school and let the teacher send them home in another child’s backpack.

*Take chalk and drive around to your friends’ houses.  Have your kids write kind words about the friend on their driveway.  It will wash off during the next rain but make their day in the meantime!

Most of all, have fun with this and watch how it changes the focus of the season!

Believe me when I say, “Jesus wants your children to have Christ-filled Christmas!” 
This little fellow could be saying, “Why not bake a birthday cake and celebrate Christ’s birth?”

Jesus loves you and has a plan for your life that is more than you can ever imagine!
