The Afflictions of TIME

Many are the afflictions of the righteous. How many times, have WE complained about something??? How many TIMES have we FOUGHT for our OWN way. As IF, God did not or does not KNOW ALL, that’s how we act. BUT, THAT is a LIE. GOD IS SOVEREIGN. This means there is nothing, that takes place, or is planned, that He is not privy to.  When conflict gets out of HAND it usually has simple reason why. The reason why is, that OUR idea or picture, is superseding HIS.

Just a few days ago, He spoke this title to me. In my spirit, I thought, “THIS is gonna be good.” But, my flesh, sure has been fighting the process, it seems. But God. Let’s look at the definition of AFFLICTION.


An affliction makes you suffer, but you have to deal with it anyway. Diseases are often said to be afflictions, but the word can mean just about anything that causes great suffering.

The word afflict, which makes up the first part of the word, means to cause this type of trouble. “Tom liked to afflict pain on his brother. His brother considered Tom just one more affliction he had to bear.” The word can also be used as an exaggeration of something that isn’t so bad––”Homework is often seen as an affliction by students and parents alike.”

Psalm 34Amplified Bible (AMP)

The Lord, a Provider and the One Who Rescues Me.

A Psalm of David; when he pretended to be insane before Abimelech, who drove him out, and he went away.

34 I will bless the Lord at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.

My soul makes its boast in the Lord;
The humble and downtrodden will hear it and rejoice.

O [a]magnify the Lord with me,
And let us lift up His name together.

I sought the Lord [on the authority of His word], and He answered me,
And delivered me from all my fears.

They looked to Him and were radiant;
Their faces will never blush in shame or confusion.

This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him
And saved him from all his troubles.

The [b]angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him [with awe-inspired reverence and worship Him with obedience],
And He rescues [each of] them.

O taste and see that the Lord [our God] is good;
How blessed [fortunate, prosperous, and favored by God] is the man who takes refuge in Him.

O [reverently] fear the Lord, you His saints (believers, holy ones);
For to those who fear Him there is no want.
The young lions lack [food] and grow hungry,
But they who seek the Lord will not lack any good thing.
Come, you children, listen to me;
I will teach you to fear the Lord [with awe-inspired reverence and worship Him with obedience].
Who is the man who desires life
And loves many days, that he may see good?
Keep your tongue from evil
And your lips from speaking deceit.
Turn away from evil and do good;
Seek peace and pursue it.

The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous [those with moral courage and spiritual integrity]
And His ears are open to their cry.
The face of the Lord is against those who do evil,
To cut off the memory of them from the earth.
When the righteous cry [for help], the Lord hears
And rescues them from all their distress and troubles.
The Lord is near to the heartbroken
And He saves those who are crushed in spirit (contrite in heart, truly sorry for their sin).

Many hardships and perplexing circumstances confront the righteous,
But the Lord rescues him from them all.
He keeps all his bones;
Not one of them is broken.
Evil will cause the death of the wicked,
And those who hate the righteous will be held guilty and will be condemned.
The Lord redeems the soul of His servants,
And none of those who take refuge in Him will be condemned.

Simple Definition of time

  • : the thing that is measured as seconds, minutes, hours, days, years, etc.

  • : a particular minute or hour shown by a clock

  • : the time in a particular area or part of the world


Full Definition of time

  1. 1a:  the measured or measurable period during which an action, process, or condition exists or continues :durationb:  a nonspatial continuum that is measured in terms of events which succeed one another from past through present to futurec:leisure<time for reading>

  2. 2:  the point or period when something occurs :occasion

  3. 3a:  an appointed, fixed, or customary moment or hour for something to happen, begin, or end <arrived ahead of time>b:  an opportune or suitable moment <decided it was time to retire> —often used in the phrase about time<about time for a change>

  4. 4a:  a historical period :ageb:  a division of geologic chronologyc:  conditions at present or at some specified period —usually used in plural <times are hard><move with the times>d:  the present time <issues of the time>

  5. 5a:lifetimeb:  a period of apprenticeshipc:  a term of military serviced:  a prison sentence

  6. Okay, NOW we will discuss how AFFLICTIONS and TIME collide. If an affliction, is something that creates suffering, and time is a period or unit of measure, then how do they work together? Well, when we focus on OUR time, which is froma place of pride, most often, WE open the doors for MORE afflictions to come. For example, if God leads us into a dark place, to be a light, but it is not happy. Not only that, it feels borderline tormenting and torturous. Especially, if IT is a plce we ventured out of before, and must now FACE the Giants.

You see, the promised land has giants, but giants can also be formed from OLD thought patterns too, or by us. This has been stated b4. This post was originally made, in December, on the 17th, the year 2015. The self is the worst. In our affliction with time, we often rehearse the pain. Like a performance, or such. It can be too much, for those nearby. Yet, angels anre sent to assist. You may not recognize. In fact, NEVER without HIS eyes.

But, there is no time and space in HIS world. Every boy and girl, just IS and can BE. You see? Time after time, Jesus arrives, with mop broom, bandages, and braces. He hugs and kisses every face. Perhaps you do not feel it. Because, it may NOT be REAL to you. Yet, is IS. Quite simply…proof of the LOVE. For, the afflictions of time, exist NOT, in the arms of our greatest LOVE. #JESUSHEALS

In His Grace and Glory,

Heaven’s Bootcamp

oA few days ago, in fact, maybe even weeks ago, this came to me. I thought, how do I write about this? So, I took some time, and just sought God for answers. What I believe He revealed is simple. Heaven’s Bootcamp, is the LIFE of Jesus. Let’s look at the definition of bootcamp.

Full Definition of BOOT CAMP

:  a navy or marine corps camp for basic training
:  a disciplinary facility or program in which young offenders are forced to participate in a rigidly structured routine.
The world defines it, in this way.
Scripture defines it, a tad different.
In Ephesians it gives us VERY specific instructions…Chapter 6

Ephesians 6Amplified Bible (AMP)

Family Relationships

Children, obey your parents in the Lord [that is, accept their guidance and discipline as His representatives], for this is right [for obedience teaches wisdom and self-discipline]. Honor [esteem, value as precious] your father and your mother [and be respectful to them]—this is the first commandment with a promise— so that it may be well with you, and that you may have a long life on the earth.

Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger [do not exasperate them to the point of resentment with demands that are trivial or unreasonable or humiliating or abusive; nor by showing favoritism or indifference to any of them], but bring them up [tenderly, with lovingkindness] in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.

[a]Slaves, be obedient to those who are your earthly masters, with respect for authority, and with a sincere heart [seeking to please them], as [service] to Christ— not in the way of eye-service [working only when someone is watching you and only] to please men, but as slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from your heart; rendering service with goodwill, as to the Lord, and not [only] to men, knowing that whatever good thing each one does, he will receive this back from the Lord, whether [he is] slave or free.

You masters, do the same [showing goodwill] toward them, and give up threatening and abusive words, knowing that [He who is] both their true Master and yours is in heaven, and that there is no partiality with Him [regardless of one’s earthly status].

The Armor of God

10 In conclusion, be strong in the Lord [draw your strength from Him and be empowered through your union with Him] and in the power of His [boundless] might. 11 Put on the full armor of God [for His precepts are like the splendid armor of a heavily-armed soldier], so that you may be able to [successfully] stand up against all the schemes and the strategies and the deceits of the devil. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this [present] darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) places. 13 Therefore, put on the complete armor of God, so that you will be able to [successfully] resist andstand your ground in the evil day [of danger], and having done everything [that the crisis demands], to stand firm [in your place, fully prepared, immovable, victorious]. 14 So stand firm and hold your ground, having [b]tightened the wide band of truth (personal integrity, moral courage) around your waist andhaving put on the breastplate of righteousness (an upright heart), 15 and having[c]strapped on your feet the gospel of peace in preparation [to face the enemy with firm-footed stability and the readiness produced by the good news]. 16 Above all, lift up the [protective] [d]shield of faith with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.

18 With all prayer and petition pray [with specific requests] at all times [on every occasion and in every season] in the Spirit, and with this in view, stay alert with all perseverance and petition [interceding in prayer] for all [e]God’s people. 19 And pray for me, that words may be given to me when I open my mouth, to proclaim boldly the mystery of the good news [of salvation], 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains. And pray that in proclaiming it I may speak boldly and courageously, as I should.

21 Now, so that you may know how I am and what I am doing, Tychicus, the beloved brother and faithful minister in the Lord, will tell you everything. 22 I have sent him to you for this very purpose, so that you may know how we are, and that he may comfort and encourage and strengthen your hearts.

23 Peace be to the [f]brothers and sisters, and love joined with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 24 Grace be with all who love our Lord Jesus Christ with undying and incorruptible love.

In our LIVES Bootcamp has had levels. I have experienced the BOOTCAMP of Hell, in some ways, but thankfully NOT anything that Jesus could not handle. 😉

I believe MANY of us come in destined to choose JESUS. In my case, the bootcamp intensified a few times for me. The most obvious time, was when Sarah was born. I had delivered to me, a piece of my HOME. Not just a baby, but a super baby, through JESUS. This sweet angel, I just had no idea. In fact, WE had no idea, just what her LIFE meant to God, and means to God. Even though her journey, is quite different than ours, we choose to see the parallels, and HIS Love in process.

So, back to boot camp….It got even more vigorous when I got married. Specifically, when my husband and I got married, our life went from incomplete, to complete. Yet there was a struggle to THRIVE. In boot camp of the world, it is highly structured. When going through Heaven’s bootcamp, it is a bit alternative. Because, the book is LOVE. That is the instruction book. You know what the book is? His word.

I have had people tell me, there is some horrific stuff in scripture. I agree. There IS. However, there is WAY more beautiful, than anything. My husband and I made a vow to God. We made this vow, and covenant when we married, but also when Sarah was 3 1/2. I will NEVER forget the day, he and I were sitting on our bed. A place, where much damage had been done, in our lives. Yet, we sat there, and cried out to God. WE really begged HIM to help us be the BEST examples we could be. We laid down our desires, any pride, negative emotions, all in honor of JESUS. Even before we knew what that meant, we asked the GLORY to shine.

Thank God for the Grace to beg for help. Jesus does not want us to stay beggars. But, He meets us, when we are there. It is ONE of the reasons we have so much passion for widows and orphans. Because we ARE them. ANy of us, could be or has been LOST. So, why should we overlook the pain? Is THAT Jesus? Look at HIS LIFE. He stopped to help ANY that desired HIS LOVE.

So many are so very focused on the laws of things, that they neglect the LOVE. Our bootcamp was a place that, to be honest was not VERY joyful, most of the time. When we did laugh, it was often followed by a flood of tears, of anger. Dear LORD, we were so broken. I will tell you, that we did NOT do everything right. But, JESUS did. When we messed up, and at first, that was a lot, we would come to God. Often, we would just be weeping, or wailing. We would repent for any influence that displeased HIM. We condemned ourselves, and then were in many ways, the enemy’s greatest tool. In doing this, we indirectly rejected His LOVE. Not that this was on purpose, or even made known to us then, but it was rejection.

We were living life on purpose, going to church, and doing our best to be our best. Do you notice something here? I did not say, we were enjoying life. I believe there were remnants of heaven. But, WE were so broken, my husband and I, that we were constantly fighting to exist. Yet, it says we fight not flesh and blood. So, why were we? Have you experienced this? We were striving. It fact, we were constantly doing this. We had 3 properties, a business, and we were really JUST drowning. You know why? Because GOD had to show us, that HE is our way out. That, when we get done, beating our heads against the wall, HE would and will be there.

The truth is, that WE all are prodigal kids. WE were given a portion of our inheritance. We did not waste it, or squander it. Yet, God permitted the enemy to buffet us. He allowed them to steal from the holy spoils. Why? Because, our JOB was then and NOW, to forgive. We never own anything, ALL belongs to God. So, why is it, that when something threatens, what we steward, we get offended? Because, the world looks for a fight. We had to learn to let JESUS do the fighting.

He gave us Grace to investigate the evils. We learned a lot. But, what we learned the most, was is HIS camp, HE wins. Meaning, NO matter what it looks like, HIS camp is always going to celebrate. 🙂 That does NOT mean it will always feel good to  our flesh. In fact, a lot of times, it does NOT. BUT, it does to our spirit. For, the JOY of the LORD is our strength, and indeed HIS Grace IS sufficient for us.

I personally, have obviously been in HIS bootcamp for almost 11 years. At least in a way that is obvious to me. 😉 BUT, I am growing and learning to SEE, that it begins when we first breathe, earth’s air. When David and I were joined, from the Heaven’s to earth, we fairly quickly, began to encounter Heaven. But, it sure felt like HELL on earth. WE have had MANY seasons together, and I know will endure and experience many more. I have no doubt that my husband was made for me, and I for him.

At least NOW, I know and having the knowledge of Heaven, dispels, the LIES. I know many who are struggling with the questions of Life. I call them, the whys, whats and huhs. Because, in the beginning when God is establishing residency, and LOVE and showing HIS loyalty, WE are given such GRACE to ask questions. In fact, I learn NEST that way. What about you?

Yet, there is a point for no more questions, in certain areas. Meaning, we cannot harp on our desire to know, or demand the answers all the time. WE are NOT God and WE cannot exist, as though WE are. Forgive us LORD, for anytime, we have pushed things too far, and indirectly, created opportunities, or encounters of rebellion. For we know, THIS is not pleasing to you. Thank you for bringing Heaven in place of Hell. You do THIS every single day, and so many do not even notice. Give us your EYES and EARS Lord Jesus. By you spirit, presence, and your LOVE may all evil bow down. IJN (in Jesus name) Amen

It took me a bit, to finish this entry. Because, whenever God has us share, indivisually, or corporately, it is for one reason. HIS LOVE needs to be poured out. He does THAT in so many ways. That should say individually, but both are true. 😉 I have been in the other camp, thankfully, not in a way that I was openly choosing evil, on purpose. Most often, I was captivated, or pulled into a snare. I know my destiny. It is to, by FAITH, serve the ONE that made me.

Be NOT conformed by THIS world, but YE transformed, by the renewing of YOUR mind. ( the bible)

Ask the Lord to reveal to you, MORE about HIS word. It is a smorgasbord of HIS LOVE and our HOME.

In His Grace, Glory and Favor,

HE holds the KEYS to the JEM World

A few days ago, I was exercising with our daughter. While doing so, I heard the title of this blog. I thought, “What an interesting one.” I had a friend ask me, why I spelled the word jem, with a J. Here is the reason, JESUS. I was given an acronym. It is JESUS ETERNAL MAJESTY. For Jesus holds the keys to death and Hades. It says this in the word of God. You know what is absolutely amazing? So, do WE, through HIM

THE GREATEST GEM to GOD is the character of Christ ~

When I was a child, I used to watch a show called Jem and the Hollograms. This show was about a girl, who was very ordinary, on the outside. Yet, she became something extraordinary. Now, ignoring, the whole magic aspect of it all, we can see more. Meaning, JESUS and HIS LOVE makes us extraordinary. We can REST in HIM. We can REST in HIM making LIFE go, the way He desires for us. The KEY is HIS desires, not ours. I recall as a kid, wanting to be like JEM. What I really wanted, was to be someone else.

I wanted to go on stage, which was everyday life for me. Because, i was raised to perform. I don’t think anyone did it on purpose. It is just how it happened. I was raised, to hide how I felt. Yet, I could not, and so, guess what happened? I became the “problem” child. I did not see myself as good. I did not see myself as anything positive, at all. I definitely did not believe God loved me. Yet, I so trued to LOVE HIM.

I felt like a porcelain doll. A broken doll, that was always going to be cracked, and truly, would never be fixed. Somehow, I got it in my head, that if I fixed enough people, God would fix me. But, that was a lie. No matter how many success stories, I saw, I was still broken. It was a trap, really. Looking back, I see that I thought it was me helping or fixing. When, all along, it was JESUS. Even when I took credit, Jesus stood by me. Often, He watched over me, because I would not LET Him assist, as much as He would have liked.article-0-18F3722200000578-71_634x360 article-2504855-191FA85800000578-926_634x575gem-bitcoin-company

I guess, the reason I liked this show, was because I WAS her. I never knew it then, but I do now. I remember my parents introducing me to friends. They would do so with such pride. It REALLY bothered me. Because, I thought, “What have they got to be proud of?” I also fought the battle of the voices. Things would taunt me. I would hear, “YOU are NOT good enough and you NEVER will BE, They don’t LOVE you and never will, NO ONE will ever care about you, YOU will end up alone, Just KILL yourself, They HATE you, YOU will never be part of THIS family”, and many more horrible words.”

I share this to let you know, that JESUS rescued me then, and does now. I still have the battle of the words. But, NOW through HIM, I can overcome them. Jesus Eternal Majesty. PEACE in HIS LOVE and the fact that, HE never fails is present here. Even if I feel anxious, worried, sad, depressed, or some other emotion that is negative, I can choose JOY. I can choose to LIVE through HIM, on earth as it IS in Heaven.

GEMS are beautiful, and He sees us ALL as HIS GEMS. We all are the rainbow of HIS LOVE. Which means, we are not just ONE Gem in our lifetime, but ALL of them. JEM, is both a fictional character, and JESUS ETERNAL MAJESTY. It is okay, if it is both. Because, i watched Jesus teach Sarah and other kids, about HIS LOVE, through that show. I was one of those kids too. Isn’t HIS LOVE Glorious???

I have seen the GEM room in Heaven. It is stunning. It is Heaven, so THAT part is no shock. Everything in Heaven is glittery and beautiful. THIS is how Jesus wants US to be. HIS LOVE needs to shine through us, and DRAW people into HIS place. We should, through HIM, be a light in the city on a hill. But are we? I think that is something to ask HIM. His answers are all in HIS word, about what we are to HIM. Yet, are we choosing THIS, naturally speaking? I know it is a challenge for us sometimes. But, thankfully, He gives a clean slate, any times, as we repent from our hearts. Hos forgiveness is healing indeed.

Now, remember something there is also another word for Jem, which is GYM. I find it so interesting that there are 3 ways to share this one word. The last way is significant. Because, JESUS should be our personal trainer. We need to workout with HIM. He should be the ONLY one pushing us. No other individual, should be our EVERYTHING, but Jesus. So, why do we look to others, to do, what ONLY He can?

I believe it is simple, we have been TOLD we should.

Forgive us LORD, for falling prey to the lies, and remind us, that ONLY YOU hold the KEYS to death and Hades, and ONLY YOU can complete the process of our freedom. WE LOVE you JESUS, Heavenly Father and HOLY SPIRIT. We thank you for a new day, and we, by FAITH decide to decree and declare, that WE LIVE in your world today. Bring em’ Heaven LORD. We choose YOU. In Jesus name. Amen

Proverbs 3:15

She is more precious than jewels; And nothing you desire compares with her.

Proverbs 31:10

An excellent wife, who can find? For her worth is far above jewels.

Ezekiel 27:16

“Aram was your customer because of the abundance of your goods; they paid for your wares with emeralds, purple, embroidered work, fine linen, coral and rubies.

Revelation 21:19-21

The foundation stones of the city wall were adorned with every kind of precious stone The first foundation stone was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, chalcedony; the fourth, emerald; the fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, topaz; the tenth, chrysoprase; the eleventh, jacinth; the twelfth, amethyst. And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; each one of the gates was a single pearl. And the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.

29caf0651dd94f57758d9befcb449fc81393995_10201078220131542_2001900371_n12189871_730291773768079_329414883154103138_nYesterday, when I was getting, the prompting to write, I heard this phrase. I thought of the movie, with the same title. “TWO WEEKS NOTICE.” Have any of you seen it? The movie is about a lawyer, who takes a job, for a purpose she believes in. She takes a job, with a man that everyone sees as a BIG WIG. Once she gets in the position, she realizes, that the man, is Just a MAN. Meaning, he has a heart, pain, desires, and wants LOVE. I won’t tell you the plot completely, but suffice it to say, it has surprises in it.

So, as I was praying about this, I realized something. That MAN can represent Jesus. We come before HIM, often law based, and demanding our purpose be revealed. When the TRUTH is, HIS purpose is what matters. Don’t WE want that? Because, if WE don’t REALLY desire, fully HIS purpose, we need to take a hard LOOK. The scripture came to me, “Work out your own salvation.” Also, “Study to show thyself approved.” Both of these are really significant here. WE are HIS BRIDE. We have to choose to receive HIS LOVE. We do this, by FAITH in Jesus. TRUE FAITH comes from the finished work, that HE has completed. He is BOTH, the tree of LIFE and the ROOTS.

There are MANY that are in desperate situations and circumstances. Always, God gives us a choice. We can HEED His instructions, and receive HIS blessings, or WE can reject HIM. For us, and our family, the choice is simple. HIS LOVE conquers everything. This does NOT happen, from a place of religiousness. It happens from a beautiful garden of intimacy. I ask you something now. Are you willing, to give God 2 weeks? Can you give HIM 14 days, to turn around your burden? Not just to turn it around, but to handle it. God can and WILL do it.

God does not need THAT long. He can do it is a minute, hour, day, couple days, anytime HE chooses. But, 2 weeks is specific. 14 is the BIBLICAL number of DELIVERANCE. I urge you, to by FAITH in Jesus, surrender the TIME b4 HIM. We have done this, and ARE doing this too. Because, WE always need MORE FREEDOM. We always need MORE healing. He wants us purified, sanctified, and cleansed.

HE is our purpose. HIS LOVE Grounds US. His HEART unites us. HE is why WE can exist here. God does not ignore His kids. Yet, He waits for us to come to HIM. As patient as it appears that the enemy is, GOD is MORE. As strategic, and relentless, as it appears, the enemy is, GOD is MORE. Jesus, the Heavenly Father, and the Holy Spirit united are UNSTOPPABLE. Does God say it will be easy? NO. However, I would not even want to imagine, how much more difficult without HIM.

There is DOOM and GLOOM without JESUS. But, with HIM, there is HOPE. There is GRACE, MERCY, FORGIVENESS, JOY, PEACE, and MORE in JESUS’s ARMS. All the desires that WE have, that are GOOD and HOLY, are held in the hands of God. Also, they are held in HIS heart, and are waiting. He is a GREAT God, and He gives as WE receive. His giving also often arrives through surrender. That is an interesting word. Because, MANY want to have one foot, in Heaven and one in the world. But, He is clear that WE cannot serve BOTH God and Mammon. So, why are so many trying?

There are numerous reasons, why people stay stuck. The number 1 reason, is because they feel UNWORTHY to move forward. Even DEEPER, they have judged themselves, unworthy to receive HIS LOVE. But, that actually negates what Jesus did. When we choose guilt, rejection, unworthiness, it causes sadness to the LORD. I don’t know about you, but I want to make HIM happy and joyful. I want HIM to look at me, and be pleased. Even if NO one else, were pleased with ME, my desire is that HE smiles.

The challenge set before you is THIS : For 2 weeks say thank you to God. Begin with 5 minutes, start slow. You can even start with 3 minutes. A devotional is a good tool as well. Increase the time, and list of what you are giving over to HIM. I am beginning this today, with our family. Believing that Heaven will come, and Hell subside. I have FAITH in HIM, that HIS LOVE will conquer ALL EVIL. No weapon formed against US will prosper, and HE will bring the increase. To the enemy, JESUS has given you 2 weeks notice, and you will see HIS ROAR, soon enough.

In His Grace and Glory,

In HIS Arms

I had the most beautiful experience recently. I fell asleep in the arms of Jesus. Have you ever embraced a HUG from God? It comes in MANY forms. My favorite one, is through HIS babies. It can be a smile, literal hug, kind glance, encouraging word. ALL of these, are hugs and kisses and LOVE of Jesus. His desire, is for US to REST in HIS arms.

So, I ask a question today. Do OUR desires line up with those of Heaven??? Are we truly receiving the LOVE of God? Because if we ARE, then we know without doubt, He LOVES us. If we are doubting HIS Love, then somewhere, the frequency to receive it is crossed. I love movies, and I realize now, how much God teaches me there. One movie that shows a vivid example, of crossed frequency danger, is “Ghost Busters.” There is a scene where they discuss their extinction, in trying to capture and destroy the evil, if the power lines cross.

Ultimately, JESUS is our all in all. He has to be. If He is NOT, then He is NOT first. If he is not our JOY, than something or someone is in the way of that. I now understand that LONG before I “felt” the arms of Jesus, I was being held by HIM. Even in the time that I seemed to be disconnected, He knew me. He always saw my destiny, and kept drawing me back into HIM.

So many times, Jesus was fighting for me. I had little, if any clue. He fought through others, and I was so broken, I never noticed. I ask heir forgiveness now, of my own pain clouding the view of Heaven. He fought around others, and with the host of Heaven united, on my behalf. He does that for HIS kids. It humbles me daily, how the LORD fights for His babies. Thank God that He does not sleep or slumber. I am so humbled and grateful for HIS abiding and unending LOVE. I have entered into the Gates of His arms. Oh, it is indeed beautiful. There are NO LIMITS here.

Yesterday, I was given this psalm…

In HIS ARMS, I am suspended. In HIS ARMS, there is never ending LOVE. In His arms, I can surrender ALL. It is safe here. It is okay if I feel small, and feel at all. It is SAFE here. It is good that I express my heart, to my KING. It is SAFE here. In His ARMS, there is hope, and I am HOME. I can REST in HIS arms. I can sleep in HIS arms. I am not CHARMED by the world here. I am fully at peace. ALL evil must bow, when I am HELD in HIS arms. There are no alarms, He cannot handle, or sound. His Grace and MERCY abounds here. I am complete here, HIS favor rests on me, while I reside, in HIS arms. His hands KEEP me, safe and sound. His eyes, watch and record my moves. HIS LOVE flows through my DNA. My blood is made NEW. My organs alive, and well. 100% healed and whole, set free. From Hell, I will never react. Only Heaven moves me, only JESUS lives here. Only the Holy Spirit, can dwell here. Only the Heavenly Father is the one whom I adore. United, the family of GOD, forever more. No more Jacob, no more hurt, no more anger, no more fear. No more doubts, no more questions, for HE alone has made it clear. In full I see, HIS Love for me. Come partake of HIS will of LOVE. Thirst no more, hunger no more. CHOOSE this day. It will never be regretted. Come forth Lazaras, and ARISE. For HIS breath will make your dry bones live again. His simile, His laughter, His JOY will fill you and make you whole. YOur freedom is part of another. Every sister and brother in the body, is ONE through Jesus. The cornerstone, the greatest jewel, choose today. The ONE way. No longer the fool, will you be. Just one more time, put your trust in me, says Jesus. I will fight, I will win and WE will indeed celebrate.

I never considered myself a psalmist. But, Jesus sees me as MORE than I could ever fathom. He sees YOU as MORE too. A song that has been on my heart, is “Dear John.” Mandisa wrote this song, for someone she loves, a family member. This song is a heart cry to Jesus, and a plea to them, on behalf of HIM. I was so touched by it, and even more I am still. The beauty of HIS LOVE. The joy in His arms.

Dear John, How you doin’
I’ve been thinking about you
I’m not sure how to say it,
but I’ve been praying daily
For some kind of a breakthrough

I’ve said this a thousand times
And I know you don’t see my side
But I do it ‘cause I love you
So, dear John here’s the truth…

There’s freedom
On the other side of
Things that keep us tied up and afraid
There’s hope in every situation
No matter what you’re facing everyday
But it’s up to you
You get to choose
The Father is waiting there with open arms

Dear John, People hurt you
And you know I’ve been hurt too
There’s no way to escape it,
don’t let your pain be wasted
No, don’t let it get the best of you
‘Cause God took my broken parts
And gave me a brand new start
Now I am walking, breathing, living proof
And, dear John, He can do this for you

There’s freedom
On the other side of
Things that keep us tied up and afraid
There’s hope in every situation
No matter what you’re facing everyday
But it’s up to you
You get to choose
The Father is waiting there with open arms

Dear John, It’s a not a list of do’s and don’ts
Not a record of your faults
He gave his life pay it all
Dear John, He loves you just the way you are
You are forgiven by His scars
Just open up your heart, your heart

There’s freedom
On the other side of
Things that keep us tied up and afraid
There’s hope in every situation
No matter what you’re facing everyday
But it’s up to you
You get to choose
The Father is waiting there with open arms

Dear John, dear John, dear John, dear John…

This song is so significant. It reminds us that GOD comes NOT against our will. But, if our will is not 100% submitted to HIS, then are we really serving and choosing HIM??? I remember long ago, I was seeking His will, over our marriage. There were circumstances, that could have absolutely destroyed us. In fact, in many ways, they did. But God. His LOVE revives us, causes us to thrive and repent for error in process. For without the repentant heart, we have NO lifeline to God. We are truly disconnected from Jesus. Even if we had been connected b4. He knows when and if we will return to our first LOVE.

06 Nov 2015


In reflection time, with God, I often just sit, with worship music on, or a sermon in the back ground. Rarely, do I sit in quiet. Though, little but little, that is changing. I realized something recently. When writing the first book, I did sit in quiet. I just let God speak. It was indeed, a beautiful time, with Him.

I would awaken at strange hours, and I would just start to type. I believe Jesus was guiding me, instructing me, through the Holy Spirit, and I know that Father, was pleased. Our Heavenly Father, is so good at fighting for His kids. It really amazes me, every single day, to notice MORE the goodness and GREATNESS as well as wonders of God.

So, as to how this entry came about. I was praying about my life, as a living sacrifice to God. I remembered when I was in my 20’s. Specifically, a time, when my grandfather Cooper passed. You see, it was near my birthday. The funeral, was actually ON it. At the time, the guy I was dating, came with me. We spent time together, at a restaurant, and later a movie. The movie, “Sweet Home Alabama,” was really cute. I liked it, and even now, still learn things from the film.

I grew up in the South. I could relate a lot to the film. In fact, now I know ways, I id not even know then. In Tennessee life was not always easy for me. Interestingly, as I have done some growing, I have observed, I was not the ONLY one struggling. I was simply, one of the more transparent ones. I used to say awful things, about where I lived. I did not appreciate, where I had been birthed. Because, then I had been BORN into pain.

In the movie, it starts out with 2 young kids, 9 years old, and maybe 11. They are just starting to wonder what LOVE is and looks like. I remember that, so well. I remember the name of my first kiss, and so forth. But, those things are not, as important to me. NOW, I recall at 9, I officially chose JESUS.

The film chronicles, the lives of the 2 kids. It shows a deep separation, and almost divorce. But God. In my life, THIS happened with Jesus. Bad seeds were planted and they pulled me into the world. The more I tasted of the world, the more I seemed to LOSE my appetite for Heaven, and HOME. The movie, is a comical example, in some ways, and a touching one in others.

I recognize now, having endured much suffering through Christ, that WE must appreciate EVERY detail. The command is to “Count it ALL Joy.” To be open to somethings, that because God leads, will work, even if they make no logical sense to us, at first. To know that HIS plans, though often VERY different than ours, do succeed.

So, today I want to BLESS my homeland, Tennessee. I met Jesus there, in many ways. The best part is, HE met ME there. 🙂 I ask Heaven to invade and the Lion of Judah to roar over this land. I bless every individual there. In the name of Jesus, and through HIS LOVE. I thank God for my family. I know they don’t always understand me. Also, that, at times, I have made it virtually impossible to love me. I ask forgiveness, from them and God. I choose to receive again, this day. I am believing for Many miracles, through THIS land and all the nations. Your will be done, on earth, as it is in heaven. Amen

OUR Brand is JOY

19693_491506860886978_1220456359_n maxresdefault our brand is crisisIf you have ever read this blog before, you know one way God reaches me. It is through movies. 🙂 Yesterday, seemingly out of nowhere, our house had a little speed bump come up. It happens sometimes, in the healing process. It is especially common when families, grow together. 🙂 Many of us know enemy tactics. But, do we really UNDERSTAND the strategies of Heaven?

For example, the one gift we can give God is to surrender ALL, stay repentful, and work in unity. It does not seem like much, but, the obedient sacrifices, are worth so MUCH to Him. He will honor them, so greatly, because each one is a seed. It is a seed, through Jesus, who is our tree of LIFE. I say this, to say that yesterday was interesting to me. I called my husband and asked him a question. It was a simple question. I said, “Honey, Could I go see a movie?” Now, I asked him for one reason, and one only. God led me to, and my husband deserves to be honored. Because, my request, was simple and sincere, He honored it.

I went to the theater, and I began to ask God what movie to see. At first, logic told me to see one movie, then another caught my eye. So, I asked the people at the desk, about reviews. Afterwards, I knew God was calling me to see, ONE in particular. The movie is called “Our Brand is Crisis.” I will come back and add more to this entry. I am going to let that germinate a bit, and we will pick up later. God bless you.

In His Grace and Glory,



Okay, we are back and ready to share more of this review, of the film. 🙂 The movie begins with a strategist, played by Sandra Bullock. She has gone through the ringer. She made some very bad choices, and they led to the downfall of many. But yet, she got another chance, to help a candidate. They came to her for assistance, because despite, her fall, she had a good reputation. Looking at our lives, I can so relate.

I have had deep humiliation, pain, embarrassment, shame, hurts, rejections, and more. What about YOU? Can you relate??? As I was watching the film, I not only related to her character, I could see JESUS in it. There is NOTHING that we endure, that He has not. That is VERY good news indeed. Therefore, when we face difficult circumstances, WE can REST in His victory. In the MANY victories, that JESUS brings, WE can REST. His name is, just that, VICTORY.

So, in the film the strategist, goes through much difficulty to help this candidate. There is warfare, that the movie, only touches on. What really stood out to me, was the character who opposes her. This man, in the film, is just dripping with evil. He goes for the jugular, with her. Does the enemy not do this, with us? I won’t give away the plot of the film. I will say though, that there is A LOT there, in the film.

It helped me to see, even deeper just how MUCH God fights for us. it encouraged me, to be even more grateful for the fact, that HE is designed to be my advocate. Jesus is my strategist. He leads and orders every step. Through the power of the Holy SPirit and Heavenly Father, WE see victory happen. BY His LOVE and through His Grace, we exist. He will send many angels in disguise to assist us. Will WE be wiling to receive?

Or, will we be so busy entertaining the evil, that WE miss God’s hand in our lives? Eventually, God has to step back. He will LOVE us, and never leave us, but He may watch for a bit. Because, if WE are not willing to TAKE and apply the strategies of Heaven, then sadly, He has no choice, but to let us have our private hell.

When God revealed to me, I was in agreement with evil, I had to denounce it. I had to divorce it. How? Through the LOVE of JESus. i encourage you, to seek HIS will for your lives. Because, HIS will is the ONLY way, that will work, long term. It is better to be willing to die to us, so that HE can live. I am a testimony of His healing. More every day, He brings Heaven, in place of hell. He does so, because WE are and have been submitting to His desires for many years.


They’re watching. Even the angels are watching. Continue speaking TRUTH, that is rooted in Holiness and Righteousness. Be not religious, or believe I can be limited. My LOVE can, will and HAS conquered. But, will you FULLY do it My way? Many are saying they are for ME, but I see. I know who IS and is NOT for me, and who will be. My BRIDE will be spotless, without wrinkle. She will not attempt to LIMIT my LOVE, in any way. She will be purified, and united with ME. I will cleanse her, of all of this world. She will be given new strategies, and even more, Heavenly instructions and wisdom. So, my precious ones, are you willing to MARRY ME? Can you DIVORCE yourselves from THIS world? Will you let my WORD wash you, white as snow? Are you ready to withstand the FIRE, by my Grace and mercy as well as LOVE. For, I must be your anchor, My shalom, indeed, your portion. This day, for many a New Beginning comes. It will arrive, from Heaven above, on earth as it is, indeed in heaven, your HOME.

This film, helped me to see that, NO matter what it looks like, when we walk away from the evils, THERE is indeed much JOY and GREAT victory there. Our brand in NOT Crisis, it is JOY and HIS name is JESUS. ~

In His Grace and Glory,

E and Fam

Come play in MY treehouse

He speaks to me through movies, His word and so much MORE. New open doors, are everywhere. 🙂 HIS LOVE is what is in store. He is requesting us, to come AWAY with HIM. Meaning, Jesus wants us to come play in HIS treehouse. His tree house is beautiful. Yet, when planted on earth, must be planted, where He chooses. You know why? WE are part of it. WE are seeds in HIS TREE of LIFE. You know what is awesome? As WE eat more from Heaven’s table, more LIFE from our TRUE HOME arrives.

JESUS is the tree house. 🙂 He is requesting we come and spend TIME with HIM. In all we do, HE desires to be forefront. In return, He will fill us with so much JOY overflowing. WE are living proof. 🙂 🙂  JESUS is singing  this OVER us tonight.

Nora Jones:

Come away with me in the night
Come away with me
And I will write you a song
Come away with me on a bus
Come away where they can’t tempt us, with their lies
I want to walk with you
On a cloudy day
In fields where the yellow grass grows knee-high
So won’t you try to come
Come away with me and we’ll kiss
On a mountaintop
Come away with me
And I’ll never stop loving you
And I want to wake up with the rain
Falling on a tin roof
While I’m safe there in your arms
So all I ask is for you
To come away with me in the night
Come away with me

This is a time, that is so exciting and inviting, for His faithful ones. JUBILEE!!!!!! Jubilant JOY, for each obedient, girl and BOY. Those others, will be handled, and loved on with care. But, know this, Jesus will be there. He will handle it. The Lion of Judah NEVER quits. Can’t you hear HIM ROAR, with the sound of LOVE… A new choice, a consistent one, must be made. WE cannot justify old traditions, or things of man. For the spirit grieves, as death is often honored, if only by the ignorance present. He has warned many, and soon ALL will BOW at the name of JESUS.

HE is the VINE and WE are the branches. What tree are we playing in? I want to eat GOOD fruit. I want to be used to produce, GOOD and HOLY fruit. What about you??? Is it a consistent choice, to choose life? Do you want to come and play in the treehouse, of LOVE, known as Jesus?

Years ago, we had various circumstances, that required “play therapy” for our kids. It was how WE as a family, began to grow and heal. In the kids, that were in process, of being adopted, many secrets were hidden. That opportunity, to give them play therapy, was an opportunity to eat of the tree of life.

When Adam and Eve, fell in the garden, it was because they ate of the tree of good and evil. Was that because, God did not want them to know truth? NO. It was more, because God did not want truth, to become manipulated. When Adam and Eve defied and betrayed God, they were so ashamed and afraid of His reacttion. Don’t we understand this? I know, I do.

That treehouse, has thorns, thistles, and broken branches. Ones, that have been damaged, and are barely hanging on, and others, trying to cut the good branches, hidden in between, off. The one of good and evil, houses a lot of confusion, and many questions. THIS leads to MORE questions. DO you see??? The LIFE treehouse, has butterflies, and beauty, and rainbows, and JOY and ALL the fruit you can handle.

The fruit of the spirit leads, the TREE, as it ALWAYS brings and bears, HOLY fruit. The branches, are anchored, by holy roots, and not corroded, at all. THEY are anchored in Jesus. ANY other tree, has roots to the world. SO, you know that we have experienced and awaken, to much of Heaven. We have begun, more each day, to choose LIFE, and play in that tree. WE purposely EAT of the FRUIT of Heaven. LIFE has change and is growing into, HEAVEN on earth. 🙂

Going to share a note, with glympses of HEAVEN, our HOME.

OK, so I tried typing this on the ipad to NO avail. BUT GOD. SO now I am at HIS laptop. 🙂

He is so funny By the WAY….because today He sent me a baby rainbow in the clouds. Not the first time, just a reminder. I almost tried taking a picture. But He said, “No some things are just for you to see. ” A reminder of HIS promises….that HE alone keeps them. GLORY!!!!

Then, He reminded me of a few things. First on Christmas, which we don’t celebrate per se, but the place where we were was having a big Holiday dinner; a raccon showed up. Now, I don’t know what ya’ll think abt racoons. But we, just LOVE them!!!

This one was the cutest most hugable, precious, joyful, loveable, being ever. You know why? Because Sarah Beth was using it to say hi. IT was ONLY my husband and I that saw her. It remains a beautiful memory. I was talking about Sarah Beth, our butterfly, being an angel in disguse, and a dog came into the church. It was really AWESOME. It was like her arriving to the party, saying hello!

This morning I was tired, have been really working hard in HIS Grace as He is moving all over the place. I was so wanting to go back to bed, but GOD led me to just REST and bathe HIM in. So, I was doing just this, in a special place where HE continually baptizes me and cleanses me. I LOVE any kind of water. It can be a pool, a bath tub, it matters not. It is ALL healing!!!!!

Well, I am just laying and relaxing, and all of the sudden the song “BEAUTIFUL” comes on. It is by Kari Jobe and so annointed in HIS LOVE. Including the LYRICS here…


Here before Your alter, I am letting go of all I’ve held, Of every motive, every burden, Everything that’s of myself

And I just wanna wait on You, my God, I just wanna dwell on who You are

Beautiful, beautifu. l, Oh, I am lost for more to say, Beautiful, beautiful, Oh Lord You’re beautiful to me

Here in Your presence, I am not afraid of brokenness

To wash Your feet with humble tears, I would be poured out till nothing’s left

And I just wanna wait on You, my God, I just wanna dwell on who You are

Beautiful, beautiful, Oh, I am lost for more to say, Beautiful, beautiful, Oh Lord You’re beautiful to me

Beautiful, You’re beautiful, oh You’re beautiful, Beautiful, beautiful

Holy, holy, holy You are, You are Holy, holy, holy You are, You are Holy, holy, holy You are, You are Holy, holy, holy You are, You are

Beautiful, beautiful Oh, I am lost for more to say Beautiful, beautiful Oh Lord You’re beautiful to me

You’re beautiful Beautiful, beautiful Beautiful, beautiful Beautiful

While listening to the song I began to hear giggles. I said, “Hi baby girl! Did you come to check on me?” She just smiled. I said, “thank you for sharing this song. I know how much you LOVE it. Thank GOD for using you still.”

Then, to confirm that she was very present, as was the Heavenly Father, Lord Jesus our brother, and the Holy Spirit, something else awesome happened. You ready for this???

The very next song that came on was called “Butterfly” by Julie True.

GOD has not forgotten us, we will weep and we will rejoice….in HIM and HIS LOVE not necessarily the circumstances, but GOD who rises above them in us and causes us to FLY as HIS eagles!!!!!

One other thing that happened, I was not going to share, but it was impressed upon me by our awesome GOD to do so. This was the 4th song that deeply touched me today, and I keep typing 4, I thought in error. BUT GOD. He is doing many many many creative miracles in and on HIS earth.

The other song that made me weep and CRY out HARD to GOD today….was this one. It is by Addison Road.

“Hope Now”

If everything comes down to love Then just what am I afraid of When I call out Your name Something inside awakes in my soul How quickly I forget I’m Yours

[PRE-CHORUS] I’m not my own

I’ve been carried by You

All my life

[CHORUS] Everything rides on hope now

Everything rides faith somehow

When the world has broken me down

Your love sets me free

When my life is like a storm

Rising waters all I want is the shore

You say I’ll be ok and

Make it through the rain You are my shelter from the storm

[PRE-CHORUS] I’m not my own

I’ve been carried by You

All my life

[CHORUS] Everything rides on hope now

Everything rides faith somehow

When the world has broken me down

Your love sets me free

[CHORUS 2] Everything rides on hope now

Everything rides faith somehow

When the world has broken me down

Your love sets me free

You’ve become my hearts desire

I will sing Your praises higher

Cause Your love sets me free Your love sets me free Your love sets me free


I pray GOD uses this to BLESS you ALL in some way. I can tell you it greatly encouraged me, and I thank GOD for HIS cleansing power, strength and purpose for ALL of us. Please receive it and pull back from the familiar, because the SNOW will melt and spring will come, in HIS KINGDOM first.

Yesterday at the Steven Curtis Chapman concert, which was one HUGE worship service, he and they sang certain songs that were just gut wrenching because of the newness of what we are experiencing. yet there was much healing in the tears. As this happened GOD wrapped HIS arms around me and held me. Butterfly gently stroked my hair. Oh, the wonders and power of our GOD. Who always gets the GLORY.

We have a door that tends to close when not propped. I did not touch it, and all of the sudden I walked in to hand something over the shower, and it began to close. I believe it was GOD using our butterfly to remind us that the wrong doors are closing, and the right ones opening. That, of of course they are here with us. No matter how dark it appears, the LIGHT will always shine.

Mark 16

Amplified Bible (AMP)

16 And when the Sabbath was past [that is, after the sun had set], Mary Magdalene, and Mary [the mother] of James, and Salome purchased sweet-smelling spices, so that they might go and anoint [Jesus’ body].

2 And very early on the first day of the week they came to the tomb; [by then] the sun had risen.

3 And they said to one another, Who will roll back the stone for us out of [the groove across the floor at] the door of the tomb?

4 And when they looked up, they [distinctly] saw that the stone was already rolled back, for it was very large.

5 And going into the tomb, they saw a young man sitting [there] on the right [side], clothed in a [[a]long, stately, sweeping] robe of white, and they were utterly amazed and struck with terror.

6 And he said to them, Do not be amazed and terrified; you are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, Who was crucified. He has risen; He is not here. See the place where they laid Him.

7 But be going; tell the disciples and Peter, He goes before you into Galilee; you will see Him there, [just] as He told you.

8 Then they went out [and] fled from the tomb, for trembling and bewilderment and consternation had seized them. And they said nothing about it to anyone, for they were held by alarm and fear.

9 [b]Now Jesus, having risen [[c]from death] early on the first day of the week, appeared first to Mary Magdalene, from whom He had driven out seven demons.

10 She went and reported it to those who had been with Him, as they grieved and wept.

11 And when they heard that He was alive and that she had seen Him, they did not believe it.

12 After this, He appeared in a different form to two of them as they were walking [along the way] into the country.

13 And they returned [to Jerusalem] and told the others, but they did not believe them either.

14 Afterward He appeared to the Eleven [apostles themselves] as they reclined at table; and He reproved and reproached them for their unbelief (their lack of faith) and their hardness of heart, because they had refused to believe those who had seen Him and looked at Him attentively after He had risen [[d]from death].

15 And He said to them, Go into all the world and preach and publish openly the good news (the Gospel) to every creature [of the whole [e]human race].

16 He who believes [who adheres to and trusts in and relies on the Gospel and Him Whom it sets forth] and is baptized will be saved [[f]from the penalty of eternal death]; but he who does not believe [who does not adhere to and trust in and rely on the Gospel and Him Whom it sets forth] will be condemned.

17 And these attesting signs will accompany those who believe: in My name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new languages;

18 They will pick up serpents; and [even] if they drink anything deadly, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will get well.

19 So then the Lord Jesus, after He had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven and He sat down at the right hand of God.

20 And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord kept working with them and confirming the message by the attesting signs and miracles that closely accompanied [it]. Amen (so be it).


Today at Walmart we saw a bird, we knew it was a “holy racoon experience again.” Then we saw a deer jumping through the field on the way home. Thank you GOD….


We continue to speak FORGIVENESS. WE forgive even GOD…because He needs os clear of obstacles. GLORY GLORY GLORY to our mighty GOD!!!!

In His Grace and Glory,

28 Oct 2015


This entry, has required MUCH prayer and fasting. Because, ya’ll, I have to write about my DEATH. I was no like, “Yay, I am so excited, at first.” But GOD. Now, I am thrilled to share of HIS GLORY AND AFFECTIONS!!!! so, HERE WE go. 🙂 I start out, to say, that THIS began in VERY deep intercession. Around Tuesday of last week, I felt the LORD tug on me. I knew He was drawing me into HIM, even DEEPER. I began to think about Sarah, our daughter. When HE drew her in deeper, she seemed to DIE. I say, seemed to, because often, on this earth THINGS look different. It takes HOLY discernment to REALLY digest it all.

Okay, so, I was sitting b4 Jesus, really missing our girl. Not, necessarily, grieving, but just healing from the deep INTERNAL LOSS. As well, as the external loss, but more just focusing on HIS healing in process. So, I sat, and just RESTED. He would not let me connect with anyone, but my spouse. He would come in, and bring me “food and water.” The first time, we experienced this, was when she went HOME, almost 2 years ago. My husband was quite bothered by it, and sought the LORD. Who then told him, to just leave me be. SO, he barely spoke to me. Now, THIS time was very different.

My husband spoke to me, and quite frankly was pretty terrified. I could FEEL it. On my birthday, God had given me a word regarding my LIFE. My 39th B-day would be a time, I would conquer disease. Will explain more about that, in a second. But, when it happened, I think I thought I would wake up, instantly feeling better, looking better and well JUST BEING better. Yet, God had way more important plans, and strategies, I could not SEE. On Tuesday, the 13th, He began to be VERY strict with me.

He let me know, that I must not let in a soul, but DAVID, till otherwise instructed. SO, I, knowing the importance in His tone, agreed, and did as commanded. For 4 days, I sat with GOD and just died, a little more each day. I did listen to His word, on the 16th, and I had many trying to encourage me, to fight. But, I had NO FIGHT LEFT. So, Jesus fought for me. I say this, to tell you, “HE will fight for you, but YOU must be still and LET HIM.” I had to, and God is NO respector of persons.

On the 17th, and really the night of the 16th, something was bugging my husband. Finally, whatever it was backed down, and he left me, to be with God. On the 17th, it continued, and God said, “Let’s do this.” So, He used me to kind of poke at, and nudge my spouse. When this happened, eventually, ALL Hell broke loose. It ended in our room. This room, our sanctuary, is indeed HOLY GROUND. The place where we are has quite a history. I say this, to explain, that IT is a place of DEEP REST too.

At exactly 7:15 am on the 18th of this month, October, I DIED. I mean that in EVERY sense of the word. It was and IS the deepest level of DEATH, that I have EVER experienced. BAR NONE, it is the most powerful resurrection, I have ever seen, thus far. But, it was NOT just a simple resurrection. It was and IS known as ETERNAL RESSURECTION. I was given a choice, to go or stay, in a sense. I knew I needed to stay here.

As far as the details, suffice it to say, that SO MUCH evil, was involved. BUT GOD. I glory not in the enemy or His attempts, but IN MY JESUS, who overcomes. HE does it. He took me over, and as they crucified, and slaughtered me, to the very nth degree, so they did HIM. THIS is what HIS LOVE is truly about. IT is about MOVING forward, ONLY in HIS Grace, LOVE and MERCY. Faith, Hope and LOve, but the Greatest of these, is LOVE.

You see, my fellow readers, friends, family, and more, I was plucked from HELL. So long ago, I was removed from that place. But this, was the time of the promise. The time HIS HOLY seed was brought back, for HIS GLORY, and forth. I LIVE NOW. I was totally DEAD and NOW I CAN LIVE!!!!! Not, again, but REALLY for the FIRST TIME EVER!!!!!!!!
