Here GOD… handing you my locust eaten life do whatever you want with it!

Grace has been the most powerful presence in my life. If you read in the Word grace always proceeds peace. You can’t have peace apart from grace. I love that GOD has a great exchange rate. The same power that saves us can also redeem our time and restore what has been lost in the depravity of this life and what the free will of man can do to us.

That’s the thing about being human, we sometimes think the two realms, spiritual and temporal do not overlap. I can promise you what affects you in the temporal will affect you in the Spiritual and what affects you in the Spiritual will affect you in the temporal. I am constantly being reminded and learning to understand I am a SPIRITUAL being having an earthly experience since I received Christ. I am also learning a huge difference between being CHRISTIAN and GODLY.  Oh LORD! do I need you for this!  God is teaching me daily to realize that the eternal perspective is HIS heart for me. Because it’s his perspective. LET this mind be in you which is also in Christ Jesus. So I am learning that’s it’s all about him and walking in his promise and not my own preference of what I think his promise should be. So I am stepping out in faith to believe what I have written below. This is humbling for sure because it’s not me at all but the power of GOD in me that can even attempt this.

Joel 2:25-32. This is the third time in 2 days GOD has brought this verse to me. From a request by a prison inmate Sunday… from Facebook today twice. I believe all of Gods Word is settled and … a truth for my life..

I am counting on this and receiving it as I do spiritual food and water. Let the Holy Spirit, Jesus and the Father… all do what they promise with this in me to me and for me. Anything contrary to this is not truth and is not received.

Friend, God knows how to make up for years you’ve lost in your life. No, you can’t relive your childhood, but God can make the rest of your life so rewarding, so fulfilling that you don’t even miss what didn’t happen in the past. You may feel like you wasted years in a relationship that didn’t work out. But God can bring somebody into your life so great, so fun, so friendly, so attractive that you don’t even remember the years that you’ve lost. You may have spent years on a job that turned out to be a dead end. You were working your way to the top; things didn’t turn out like you had hoped, and now it looks like there’s a big waste of time. You may not see how you could ever get to where you want to be, but don’t believe those lies. God knows how to make up for lost time. GOD CAN accelerate things. God can bring opportunities back across your path that you missed that will thrust you years ahead. It may not have happened the first time, but God will always give you another chance. He’ll make up for the lost time and bring you out better and stronger than ever before!

Father, you are my deliverer and have promised that you will accomplish this in my life. I receive it and believe it because you are a GOD who cannot lie. Thank you for taking a woman with a broken past and being her Father with a blessed future. I receive this by FAITH without wavering or flinching. Thank you for grafting me in as a Gentile and offering me the promise. I LOVE YOU In Jesus name amen.

Whatever it Takes

I used to sing a song called Whatever It Takes. I remember a man in my church saying to becareful because God might just do whatever it takes. Within a few years I was divorced facing life alone after 20 years. That being said let’s look at this idea. Some people say after a long bout with trials and temptation that they would not have had it any other way.

Ok, honestly I would have had it a different way. My family would have been whole and my girls would have never had their heart broken. I would have never had to relearn almost my entire existence. I would have been close to God in the first place. Not that everything that has happened to me is the product of divorce.

I know our Father had in mind so many things when He revealed so much to us in the Word. I could go on and on but I want to say this with all clarity. Apart from the Word of God where He expresses His desire for our lives intimately, you will never get out of the mire.

I say that because even though I would not have signed on for this chaos I also know after regrouping and banging my head on the wall there is only one way. God’s Way. I can try my way but it always leads to destruction. Not because I lack intelligence or the determination, but because my ways do not always draw me closer to the LORD. My ways are on a good day very inadequate compared to the ways of the LORD for my good and HIS glory.

Cliche as that might sound, I have the tears and heartache to back up that what I am saying. I have memories of people telling me what I am saying to you now. God’s Word is what will bring you to a place where the storm doesn’t overtake you. Now you might say I have read the Bible and I am still stuck. You might read the Bible as I did but there came a day when I read the Bible looking for God instead of looking for bandaids  and solutions to the problems I created. Hope this helps,time to go to bed. Nothing more to say. Test me on it.  GOD bless all 🙂
