Last Year Versus This Year

January 17, 2009

There have been some things that I have been thinking about lately. What makes this year so different from last year?

  1. Older….
  2. Wiser…
  3. Stronger…
  4. Better…
  5. Determined…
  6. Prayerful…
  7. Busier…
  8. Helpful…
  9. Stressed…
  10. Blessed…

I wrote the above as they came to my mind. Now…what do I need to focus on?

  1. Be Prayerful
  2. Be Walking In The Spirit
  3. Be Prepared both in season and out of season
  4. Be Proactive
  5. Be Gracious
  6. Be Prayerful
  7. Be who Jesus Wants Me To Be…Like Him
  8. Be always with Praise in My Mouth
  9. Be Helpful
  10. Be Prayerful

I can’t help but think about being prayerful. David prayed at least three times a day…morning, noon and night. Daniel prayed at least three times a day. Jesus prayed always…but you will notice in scripture that he prays often early in the morning. You see Jesus didn’t do anything during the day unless he had spoken with the Father. Jesus was given his direction, or some would say his marching orders, for the day. I believe that if Jesus had not done this every day he could not been in complete alignment with God’s plan. I know that Jesus was the Son of God and part of the triune, yet…you know that he was like us, yet without sin.

How many times have I missed an opportunity to pray with someone or for someone when I have been too busy with whatever I was doing. I know that God has been working on me to pray without ceasing. That means if it is a quick, “Guide me Father.” I am praying. So many times lately God has been placing people in my path to pray for. They often ask me to pray for them. I find myself when they say this doing it right away. I know this is what God wants me to do. Many times you hear someone say to someone else…pray for me. Well….do we? Let me always LORD to do it RIGHT AWAY!

I would ask that each of you pray for me as I continue to do God’s will for my life. That I be sensitive to what he has for me THAT day. Not for the upcoming days..but THAT day. I know he gives us glimpses into the future so that we can prepare and anticipate what is coming next. But I find myself needing strength for that particular day as my call is expanded and enlarged to something greater than what it is right now. I ask for wisdom and discernment into how to orchestrate administratively those things that are happening. I need God’s help in learning to trust people and to let go of those things that so easily beset me. I need to learn to press DELETE. I need to have God direct me and not me direct me.

Much love to all of you.

Believe In The Light

May 22, 2008

“Believe in the light while there is still time; then you will become children of the light.” After saying these things Jesus went away and was hidden from them.
John 12:36

For they loved human praise more than the praise of God.
John 12:43

This is the day the LORD has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

I thank you for answering my prayer and saving me!
Psalm 118:21

Clean Up

March 18, 2008

“He is ready to separate the chaff from the grain with his winnowing fork. Then he will clean up the threshing area, storing the grain in his barn but burning the chaff with never-ending fire.”
Luke 3:17

Favor & Peace

November 27, 2007

May God bless you with His special favor and wonderful peace as you come to know Jesus, our God and Lord, better and better.
2 Peter 1:2

Consuming Fire

November 15, 2007

For our God is a consuming fire.
Hebrews 12:29

I was over at Mike’s One Year Bible Blog today and he posted this video below.

Here are the lyrics to CONSUMING FIRE from Third Day:

Set this place on fire
Send your spirit, Savior
Rescue from the mire
Show Your servant favor

Yesterday was the day that I was alone
Now I’m in the presence of Almighty God

Chorus:
and yes our God, He is a consuming fire
And the flames burn down deep in my soul
Yes our God He is a consuming fire
He reaches inside and He melts down this
cold heart of stone.

Set this place on fire
Send Your spirit, Saviour
Rescue from the mire
Show your servant favor

Yesterday was the day that I was alone
Now I’m in the presence of Almighty God

Repeat chorus

Did you realize that inside you there is a flame?
Did you ever try to let it burn?

The One Who Is Invisible

November 13, 2007

It was by faith that Moses left the land of Egypt. He was not afraid of the king. Moses kept right on going because he kept his eyes on the one who is invisible.
Hebrews 11:27

Replenish

November 2, 2007

When you send your Spirit, new life is born to replenish all the living of the earth.
Psalm 104:30

Hosanna – Hillsong United

Verse 1
I see the king of glory
Coming down the clouds with fire
The whole earth shakes, the whole earth shakes
I see his love and mercy
Washing over all our sin
The people sing, the people sing

Chorus
Hosanna, hosanna
Hosanna in the highest

Verse 2
I see a generation
Rising up to take the place
With selfless faith, with selfless faith
I see a new revival
Staring as we pray and seek
We’re on our knees, we’re on our knees

Bridge
Heal my heart and make it clean
Open up my eyes to the things unseen
Show me how to love like you have loved me
Break my heart for what is yours
Everything I am for your kingdom’s cause
As I walk from earth into eternity

Hosanna
