He Swept me off my feet. 

Weekly, I received a big bunch of yellow roses, my favorite. He was sweet, kind and considerate. I was infatuated with his culture. He had a gentleness about him I liked. 

If I had a checklist for a man, check check check, check check.

Within a month he proposed with a gorgeous ring. "Will you marry me?" 

It wasn't a romantic Movie-Script moment. It should have been! My heart stayed seated when it should have been dancing.

Simultaneously a Yes came from my lips when a duck floated by quacking. 

The ring was too big as he slipped it on my finger.

It shouldn't have bothered me but it did. After all, I could get it sized to fit perfectly. 

The truth, I couldn't see then what I needed. My soul, heart, mind and spirit wasn't ready for this collision. Perhaps God thought otherwise.

"For who has known the mind of the Lord and who has understood His thoughts, or who has been His counselor?" Romans 11:34

Some of you are nodding you're head. YEP! 

You too have been seated face to face with deception disguised as perfect. On the inside however, you're gut told you differently.

Consequently, I am no longer married to that man. I have long since moved on and counted myself blessed with the grace to endure and to have escaped.

God never gives us more than we can bear. 

It seemed a lot to bear then, but as time goes on with each test we not only endure, but see things differently and with more grace and knowing we can do this with our Helper the Holy Spirit.

Back then, I saw not with spiritual eyes, not with the spirit of truth. I was deceived and like the perfect storm, I was caught in the middle spinning.

Deception does this. It captures the unaware and lures the flesh.

God's Word instructs us to look well into situations with patience and love. 

Patience? Love? I was neither skilled or knowledgeable about either. 

You see, the adversary had a plan for me, but God had a better one. God alway's wins. 

I have the grace to see good in all people. I think everyone is beautiful and I love accessing hidden talents. Still, God know's what he's doing.

Even when I didn't have a clue and many times still do not, my strength and trust that God does know has alway's been at the forefront of my mind.

"Let everything we do be done in love" I Corinthians 16:14, "Love thy neighbor is thyself", "do unto other's as you would have them do unto you." I heard all these from a child. 

We are instruments of God for His Will and perfectly divine plan. This has alway's been sealed in my heart. I trust God's will, He is in control.

Because of my beliefs, I've taken risks knowing God will help me. He always does. In the year's I look back on, I'm amazed at His grace and provisions, never late and right on time.

I know God allowed me to fall into this. I needed to learn so much about relationships. But did I? Not yet. 

Are we blind in spite of seeing what stares us in the face? 

Perhaps I test God. It seems I am compelled to see His mercy in my innocent trust which often looks unreasonable to an onlooker or those who think they know me.

Do we truly know anyone? Only God know's. He see's our heart before our actions. Judge not that you may not be judged. 

Yes, we live in a deceptive, manipulative world needing control. Yet, control is rooted in fear. 

Could it be those who are afraid find comfort in our steadfastness and our trust in the unseen? 

Spiritual warfare meets us as a biased mediator in our most intimate affairs. 

God is greater in me than he that is in the world. We have angelic armies holding us up when we begin to fall. I was beginning my decent not long after the wedding.

His friends were wonderful. We spent every weekend with a different couple or two. 

One evening we invited three couples for dinner. It was a special occasion for me, I admit to being impressed. 

Seated at our glass table, a stunning model, a witty attorney and two physicians. I whipped up my most impressive Italian Lasagna.

I was having great fun enjoying the stories and the mingled banter.

Why then was he kicking me under the table? My heart began to pound because I knew my heart would descend on the departure of our guests. I secretly wished they would not leave.

Verbal and emotional abuse. It doesn't always end there.

"I would be happy if you would just NEVER talk!"

My heart felt fear. We were still newlyweds but this disrespect would continue regardless of what I did or said. Nothing pleased him...ever.

Our public life was polar opposite. The same friends and aquaintances said we seemed so in love, like we were the perfect couple.

Perfection. What a lie.

We judge from the outside the "House" and never step inside to see what is truly behind that door. 

Our society runs on deception. We won't find perfect anywhere but as a body of Christ children, we are given grace in the time of need. Always. The Holy Spirit intercedes on our behalf.

Jesus prays for us! 

So, we attended church a few times a week. He held my hand and fawned over me in public. In the four years we were married I never received much affection unless it was in public.

During our fights, he made it clear I wasn't leaving. And if I tried he would take away all he'd ever given to me.

I felt trapped and desperate. My experiences hadn't yet allowed me to see I was with a complete control freak who collected people and things for security. 

I was one of those "things", for show, to display to the world, an addition to the rest of what he measured success to be.

I prayed fervently the entire marriage. I prayed for him and I prayed to the Lord to get me out of there.

When my prayer's were answered, he asked for divorce. I hid the spare keys to my car hoping I could at least keep it. My part-time position turned into full time.

I forgave him and moved on.

It is not easy to love someone unwilling to accept love or love themselves but the world is full of people who have no idea about love. God's love for us is undeniably real, devoted and unlike what this world has to offer.

Jesus told us, in this world there would be tribulation. We are "in" the world and not of it. 

Now that I read the scripture and spend time in the presence of the Lord, I receive strength and power as I ask the Holy Spirit to guide me in to love regardless of the situation.

II Timothy 1:11-12 "For the proclaiming of the gospel I was appointed a preacher and and apostle (special messenger) an a teacher of the Gentiles. and this is why I am suffering as I do. Still, I am not ashamed, for I know Him Whom I have believed and I am persuaded that He is able to guard and keep that which has been entrusted to me and which I have committed to Him until that day."

It is helpful to remember we are all teacher's and those who are difficult are likely allowed to be there so we will learn to Love. On our own, without God's Holy Spirit, we won't be able to obtain the truth of the situation without the spirit of God that works in and through us.

At the time I wasn't living wholly in Christ. I was a Christian doing worldly things and not enjoying the journey. My "mind" was attacked through deception, manipulation and beginning to believe I was unloveable. 

That was a lie I started to believe and began a downward decent when I know the hand of God lifted me up in the nic of time.

Good people get into bad situations. We keep it secret and feel ashamed when we know the truth isn't that we made a mistake, but were perhaps allowed the turbulence. 

When things are going great, we may not always feel so close to God. 

Now, I believe I am allowed to be in difficult situations so God can reveal Himself in my desperation. And desperation finds us in impossible situations.

Ephesians 3:19-20 "That you may come to know, through experience, the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge; that you may be filled unto all the fullness of God." 
"Now to Him Who, by the power that is at work within us, is able to do exceeding abundantly, above all we ask or think."

We live from day to day, from faith to faith. 

At the time, in the midst of a terrible relationship, I was thinking hopelessness. Even so, God heard me. He hears the cries of His children and answer's us.

The Lord will allow us to be in impossible situations. I can certainly raise my hand to this! But insomuch as He allows, He gives us grace and peace and even Joy. As we lean totally on Him, we see Him turn the impossible into possible. 

Lord, if you want to, can you help me? Have you been asking Jesus to touch you're situation? He will.

Mark 5:28-34" For she kept saying, "If I only touch His garments, I shall be restored to health".
And He said to her, Daughter, you're faith has restored you to health. Go in peace and be continually healed."

Many of us need a touch from God and His Holy Spirit in our life to heal emotional trauma's we are affected by. 

Satan target's our "mind" through involving us in emotional pain and trauma. I read that over 30,000 people in the US yearly, are affected by PTSD.

Romans 8:6 "Now the mind of the flesh [which is sense and reason without the Holy Spirit] is death. But the mind of the Holy Spirit is life and peace." 

I saw this revelation today on my walk regarding "forgiveness." Have you forgiven someone who caused you pain? That is a blessing. 

However, I saw in the midst of forgiveness how the adversary can attempt to steal forgiveness and it's so sly you may not at first detect it.

Suppose whenever you have contact with the person you've forgiven, they will relive the event repeatedly apologizing and telling you what a terrible person they are.

Remember, satan is subtle. Watch what you're gut feels when they are reliving. If they don't forgive themselves, they are under demonic attack of self-pity and guilt. These two things deny the love that is at the heart of forgiveness.

Many times people stay stuck in a victim mentality rather than freedom through Christ. If this is the case they need prayer. Guilt and shame are satan's tools that have the demonic attempt to induce a downward spiral into depression.

If someone forgives you, you are free. Now forgive yourself and accept the gift of Love through Christ that forget's you're wrongs and wipes the slate clean.

As long as we live, we have another day to not just live in the presence of the Holy Spirit, but we have unique situations to pray over and trust God is in charge and know's what He's doing and how to use this for our Good!

Romans 8:1"Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, who live and walk not after the dictate of the flesh, but after the dictates of the Spirit."

Romans 8:10 "But if Christ lives in you, then although you're natural body is dead by reason of sin and guilt, the spirit is alive because of the righteousness that He imputes to you."

Matthew 7:13 "ENTER through the Narrow Gate; for wide is the gate and spacious and broad is the way that leads away to destruction, and many are those who are entering through it. But the gate is narrow and the way is straitened and compressed that leads to life, and few are those who find it."

Stay strong and encouraged in the Lord.

Psalm 145:14 "The Lord upholds all those of His own who are falling and raises up all those who are bowed down."

"I boarded the plane and as I passed the cockpit the Captain turned and said hello. He was nice looking, blonde hair blue eyes and a dimple as he smiled. If I saw his face today I would recognize him. 

The Co-pilot squeezed past me and went to the rear of the plane. 

I took my seat that overlooked the wing. Upon takeoff, the co-pilot still had not returned to the cockpit. I thought it strange and irresponsible.

I watched the ground move away quickly and I felt that joy in my chest with wonder of what God will be doing though me this time, on this journey.

Minutes later the Captain announced our elevation approaching 30,000 feet when I heard a thump. Suddenly the huge plane tilted extremely to the side. I was on the downside. 

The plane went into a nose dive-type slant. I stayed calm but prayed audibly, "JESUS Help Us! Lord Save Us Father!" Yes, I prayed with total faith in my God. I wasn't afraid for myself but afraid for those who did not know my Lord as I did. 

Only a miracle could save this plane. Only God could uphold us in this dire situation. 

I felt the presence of God so strong. I felt peace.

Minutes later I felt the wheels of the plane touch the runway and the breaks lurch me forward and plane easing into a slowing halt.

Yes, it was a miracle. A total miracle of God.

Lord Jesus, what if I hadn't been on that plane? 

Was I there to pray? 

Did you put me there as an anonymous passenger who quietly boarded with a ticket to "anywhere"? Would anyone miss me? 

Lord, I will go anywhere you want me to be, I tell you every day. You're will not mine. 

I think I am invisible sometimes Father. Am I?  

I thought all these things. I thought of a divine assignment God has been whispering to's up ahead, be patient and learn from Me.

"For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in you're final outcome." Jeremiah 29:11

It is my belief that we are at times allowed to be in situations we would not go into if we knew how it would turn out. If that were the case, we would not grow in our Faith in Christ. We would not learn of His grace and care for us as He does. 

Our relationship with Christ is one we grow in. We are given a measure of faith fit for the situation. Like the situation above, the anonymous passenger believed in the power of Christ. 

This passenger knew the loving Father had a plan and a purpose for each person on the plane. 

The presence of the living God revealed Himself that day. 

I would venture to say some who upon boarding the plane were depressed, heartbroken, stressed or angry at someone. Perhaps some resented their life, complained about the holiday that wasn't as they imagined (it never is, is it?)

Do you want something you don't have or long for a sign that you're on the right track? Do you feel like God is silent right now. Don't lose hope in God. Don't rely on you're emotions.

God shows up in all that. He see's all and knows everything we feel, think and are concerned about. 

He cares about you're income, you're wardrobe and know's you're shy in person or sometimes speak before you think then regret it. 

He loves all the silly things about you. God tells us we are His Own cherished treasures, important and valuable beyond measure.

We live in a world of deception and distraction. God see's this too. 

He will never lead us or place us where we are not given the means or the inner strength to be.  

Sometimes we don't know where we're going. Sometimes in the midst of the trip there is a detour. Well, it may be for our good. God tell's us if ALL things work together for our good, that means even our doubts, sicknesses and finances.

I've seen God work things out in my life in way's I could never have planned. He's never left me without a plan He's guided me into. I have driven around not knowing where to go with limited cash and I found my way to where He needed me to be.

We don't need to know for certain where or how. We just need to know our God has the plan and the provisions we need. Provision could mean a great idea or a stranger with a great idea. For some of you it's rent money and you need it NOW. Yes, I have been there many a time and God makes a way.

The plane situation above was a dream God gave me two nights ago. I had been feeling as if I wasn't doing enough for God and as if His plan wasn't speedily enough. 

He clearly let me know I am needed (like many of you ).

You are faithful to take on what perhaps isn't evident in the physical. Inside you're job, the neighborhood or the city you reside you may be there to remain steadfast in prayer. 

Perhaps you're prayer's are keeping a marriage together or a boss planning for you're promotion. You're prayer's are blessing stranger's or stirring up a miracle.

When we bless other's we receive blessings from God. We give and commit what we "do" have to the Lord and he can multiply it.

The prayer's of one person praying can make a difference. 

If you are not there my friend then what? You're presence does matter. It does make a difference. 

Scripture tells us in Hebrews 13:2 "Do not forget or neglect or refuse to extend hospitality to strangers for through it some have entertained angels unaware".

You do not need to be concerned about money. God know's what you have need of.

Hebrews 13:5 "Let you're character or moral disposition be free from love of money and be satisfied with you're present circumstances and with what you have; for He Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. I will not, I will not, I will not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake you nor let you down. Assuredly not!"

In Luke 9:14-15 Jesus tells his disciples to "recline" at the table before there was food.

Position yourself to "receive" from the Lord and expect Him to provide what He know's you need.

Sit down and let God. He will not leave you.

Some of you may be doing as I am and doing a U-turn in life, heading either back to Jesus Christ or committing to Him for the first time. How Exciting You are my brother or sister in Christ! 

There may be times you don't fully understand the process of sanctification (cleansing through the power of Christ Jesus). If you're like me, you just want to immerse yourself in God's Word for answers and also in seeking Him there, you will sense His presence. 

The truth is, as a Child of God you may at times feel difficulty when God puts His finger on things or people in you're life as you grow in Christ. 

What I know is doing the right thing may not always offer right results immediately. Doing what's right may induce what seems more difficulty than ease. 

God blesses our obedience. If He removes what isn't beneficial He will replace it with what is.

Perhaps the "right" thing has a future yet to behold.

Pursue the right thing for now and use you're talents or occupy with doing things that lifts you're spirit. 

"A man's gift makes room for him and brings him before great men." Proverbs 18:16

Practice is not an option without something or someone to practice on. In fact life as a believer should deliver much to practice in light of the decadent evils that bombard you and I. Scripture is clear, there will be tribulation and often at our expense....Temporarily. 

"Rejoice and exult in hope; be steadfast and patient in suffering an tribulation; be constant in prayer."

What I have seen in my life is that obedience pays off. 

God know's things we do not know. His ways are not our ways, they are better.

"For from Him and through Him and to Him are ALL things." Romans 11:36

Do you feel uneasy now around objects in you're home?
There is a reason we feel uneasy about stuff. Things, like places, music, pictures, etc. trigger memories. Most of the stuff we have we don't need. Much of it locks us into the past when God's purpose for each of us to move onto the next plan, phase, assignment He has for us.

Philippians 3:15 " Press on toward the goal. Hold these convictions; and if in any respect you have a different attitude of mind God will make that clear to you also."

I can't think of anything I need except to know God more and to follow His will and purpose. In the meantime what is in front of me is quite a bit of work. Do you feel that way too?

What I mean is this. We all have situations that are testing and not fun. Many of us may be tempted to give up on a goal or a person if we don't see progress. Sometimes progress isn't evident and we can lose patience.

What helps me to not become impatient is to ask for God to give me clarity through scripture so I know for certain what I need to do. And take one day at a time. 

"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication let you're requests be made known to God." Philippians 4:6

Know that God is watching over you closely. He see's not only the situation and circumstances. He know's you're motives and intent is for good, to live according to His will. This is why you might notice the more you serve God with all you're heart, the more you may feel the need to give up things you use to do or enjoy...and many people can also begin to leave you're life! 

This is at first not fun to notice you have lost friends and | or family or both. God may be giving you this time to commune with Him and study His Word more. Make the most of what is in front of you and practice what God shows you through what trigger's you in all situations.

Psalm 139: 1 "O Lord, You have searched me thoroughly and have known me." 

All the things we hide from other's are known to God.  He know's what we need before we ask, but we should still ask for what we want as well as for blessings for those who cross our path regardless of who they are.

Take advantage of difficulty as an opportunity to give you're issues to God. Difficulty crosses the path of all, it's a blessing to have the Lord God to see us through them.

People may be disrespectful in the presence of Godly people. Why is this? We all have evil tendency called temptation. It isn't sin to be tempted, but if we partake in temptation, it is Sin. Sin will be magnified in the presence of God. As God's child you are His Representative. 

People who oppose God may act out in oppositional manner directed at us, even hate us.

Again, how they affect you depends on You not them. You're opportunity to pass yet another test hovers on this.

Be Happy With Nothing order to begin anew. God will replace what you need when you need it.

God sets us apart for His glory by sanctifying us through the cleansing of our spirit but also of our "stuff". This "can be" whatever He choses to rid of us in order to bring glory to Him and as I said, it doesn't always make sense... at first. But in time it will.

All of our choices before sanctification were most likely related to our worldly view and without considering God, therefore, we might find ourselves with property, possessions or people still having a place in our life but in God's timing He may shine a light on what needs to go.

If you have magical tools, practices and the like as I did you may want to do as I did...

BURNING THE PAST. Acts 19:18 - 19 "Many also of those who were now believers came making full confession and thoroughly exposing their former deceptive and evil practices. And many of those who had practiced curious, magical arts collected their books and burned them in the sight of everybody."

I had some furniture at one time I acquired or purchased that made me uneasy when I looked at it. Their presence brought me down so I got rid of them. You too may feel as if you want to acquire all new stuff, including donating you're wardrobe and purchasing clothing that better represents who you are becoming in Christ.

Some may say this is a bit extreme. I believe God is interested in all that involves us. 

So if you're in a position of having things and people fall away from you're life due to you're Real commitment to Christ, you can use this extra time to know Him through what He shows you in His Word. 

Like me, you may have been or are being deceived in you're "thinking" by conforming to the world's view. To change this into God's view, study His Word and in doing so, He will reveal clarity to you.

Philippians 2:21 " For the other's all seek their own interests, not those of Jesus Christ."

So here are issues that confront us every day.

1.) Think before speaking. Our tongue is the number one trouble-maker. 
      "The tongue is a fire, a world of wickedness". James 3:6
       "It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison." James 3:8

2.) The need to be right.. or Pride. We want self-will rather than God's will."
      There are too many scripture to write because God Hates Pride. "Pride before the fall"...could it 
       have been coined when Lucifer was cast from the Kingdom of Heaven due to Pride?
      "Haughtiness (arrogance, superiority, disdainful)comes before disaster, but humility before                 honor." Proverbs 18:12

3. ) Let people off the hook with our wrong imaginings. What if it's us and not them? God                         doesn't want Us to change other's, only God can change people. We are instructed not just to 
      Love other's as the #1 Commandment but to love "intensely".
      "Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy." Matthew 5:7 
      "A friend LOVES at all times, and is born as is a brother for adversity." Proverbs 17:17

"Be mindful and practice the TRUTHS contained in the messages of this book. Worship God!" Revelation 22:18-19

I am asking for the Angel of the Lord to guide and protect all my brother's and sister's in Jesus Christ. Lately but this year especially, I do sense the empowering gathering up of the Saints of God, us who truly rely on, trust in and implore the Lord by and through the name of Jesus Christ. 

There is a strong call to chose either living for God or against Him. Hopefully it's for Him and in you're spirit I pray you are hearing His voice of not the Angel of Death called the Devil or Satan.

Satan appears as a beautiful angel who if you are not familiar with his fall from grace, he wanted to have all the power and be in command over God. 

Angels are just like us, servants of the Lord, the Most High God and appointed by God. This is HIS Universe and we are His beloved creation of God Who Is All Powerful and Has the Key's to heaven and hell. 

Because Satan, (Lucifer) wanted to be in charge ( Pride before the fall?), he was plunged down to earth and recorded as a serpent now who crawls on his belly and IS a now an unhappily, defeated foe who entices us with clever charm just as he did Eve in the Garden. 

Satan uses the power of charming and convincing persuasion. He plagiarizes God's word. He claims personal power while being void of the Holy Spirit. He writes books of deception and will steal to look good. He is the ultimate and skilled actor who sneaks in and steals in the daylight. You will not at first recognize he wants to kill you for his charm is the lure.

Satan hates God and he hates you. The more you follow Christ, the more angry he becomes. He will send you the person of you're day dreams only to become the nightmare of deception to lure you're attention away from God's purpose and divine plans for you. 

How it pay's to know the difference between God's Word and a false lie disguised as truth and a fading bestseller.

A great book still cannot compete with God's Unfailing Favor and Blessings.

Satan is a deceiver. Scripture tells us to guard our hearts and be on aware of evil. Like a thief, Satan comes to Kill, Steal and Destroy. Everyone may be on his team but that doesn't mean you should!

Good looks, eloquent words, innocent eyes and some smell-good weakens the knees....but God is a strong tower I will run to and you should too.

It's the small things that we overlook where we can be attacked. 

*Investing all you're time in a place or a person, that takes you away from prayer or bible study. 

*Being lonely so you'll date people who are wrong for you. 

*Jealous or angry more than you're joyful and happy? That's a trick of satan that will lure you away with it's deceptive poisonous elixir.

*Focusing attention of someone else's path rather than you're own. This is a trap of time you don't have time for if you're going to focus on God's Purpose and Plans for you're life.

*Division. I am right and you are wrong! This trap is a Proud one. Look how Satan got to where he is.

*Talk is cheap. I learned this from a beau who didn't believe I loved him. Stop talking and listen more. Most people talk in circles and no one is interested anyway. Like a decadent dessert let it be sweet and minimal lest it make people sick.

*Social media. Be careful and use discernment. 

Angels are sent to help us. It's helpful to know they are present with joy and to deliver us from situations smoothly.

King Solomon who wrote many of the Proverbs said, "There is a friend who sticks closer than a brother." A brother is made for times of trouble.In many cases it's the friend who will cover you and not blab to the world or on facebook you were human, you made a mistake.

God's word tells us to protect our lips from listening to the person who is like a tidal wave that soaks us on our way to the gala..after we've spent a fortune at the salon, then laughs at us, takes a pic and posts it on facebook. 

Don't even read these things. They are not in jest, they are the result of deceitful, angry and bruised people who justify bad behavior. 

Proverbs 12:16 " A prudent (wise, shrewd, discreet) man ignores an insult ( speak to or treat with disrespect or scornful abuse.)

Proverbs 20:19 " He who goes about as a talebearer reveals secrets; therefore, associate Not with him who talks too freely."

What ever happened to Kindness? Thank you for existing and gifting us with you're presence. You heal our brokenness and comfort our broken hearts.

Meanness is rampant and sign of the time scripture talks about. Scripture tells us to mind our business. I believe King Solomon was a very wise man who Loved God and came to great revelations about relationships.

Angels were sent to deliver David from King Saul who became jealous of David for overshadowing him. David was doing the right thing and listen to this..while he was worshipping God and playing his guitar Saul was aiming his javelin at him from across the courtyard to pin David to the wall.

I love how David replied and there is a message here. 

I Samuel 17:45 "...You come to me with a sword, a spear and a javelin, but I come to you in the Name of the Lord of Hosts!"

I have memorized it and repeat it (silently )when I am verbally assaulted. There isn't a reason to reply to people who do this and as instructed in God's Word to ignore it. One, they do not understand they reap what they sow. Two, they are hurt people, like us all but God tells us to not retaliate, that He will vindicate us.

Satan will use offense to jab at our emotional trigger points. Here, self-control is difficult but you will see simply walking away is very productive. 

Each time you do this, it deflates the situation, at least they may follow you, but you will be blameless. You are in God's eyes and will be rewarded for you're obedience to His instruction.

Yes, there are reason's we should study God's word. It's more than what you think. It's God's living presence cleansing and renewing our spirit and upliftment of his amazing presence.

Yes, while we are joyful, satan is right there watching us like a wolf watches it's prey pretending not to be amused or interested in us so until we relax just to be attacked.

David's praise protected him from repeated attacks on his life from Saul and eventually Saul took his own life and David took the throne and became King.

Learn to ignore offense. The wise King David did this and God vindicated and delivered him from the enemy. God says, Do this and I will do That! In fact, blessing is on God's children. Scripture tells us the meaning of "blessing" is Happy, prosperous and to be envied. Yes, it's no wonder demon's despise us. Satan is not the heir to the Royal Kingdom of God.

Life will continue to deliver offense on a silver platter in many forms, some disguised by twisting the subject to slander and maliciousness. God abhors this and if done to one of His children...look out! 

Emotional attacks may be on the rise but we don't sink down by giving them attention. Clarity is certainly shifting our "vision" and as believer's in Christ, we are not to judge what we see but to intercede in prayer for the blessings on the blind in spirit. Bless those who are against us! Yes. Praying for our enemies to be blessed means God can rescue them from satan's deceptive lures and they can be shown the love of Christ.

People don't want to be Christian's because of most Christians. I didn't and I prefer to say I love Jesus because He's awesome and write about my testimony. People need to sense the spirit of God in our presence. People are watching our witness. 

We have God's work to focus on and He will give us everything we need to complete His work as we keep our eyes on Him.

Whatever situation you're in, God is ever present but when we are in constant praise in our hearts and even silent prayer we are protected by the divine power of God and protected by our angelic troops that surround us.

They come to help us, not control us. They are sent by God to guide, comfort, instruct and deliver us pointing us on the path of righteousness and Truth.

We are right now smack in the midst of a spiritual war zone. It's not a time to make light of sin. It's a time where Sin is beautiful, enticing, decadent. It is empowering in a false way. It tells us everything we want to hear to tantalize our Senses and lure us into it's comfy bed before the bottom drops out and makes it's continual decent into the darkness.

God has been lovingly showing me the things that make me imperfect. Yes, I accept in my weakness I can do nothing but through the power of Christ and His Holy Spirit, I Can Do All He asks of me. I require Him for my daily salvation. I can do what I am guided to do through him and I need the Lord in my life full strength without a deluded facade.

This year I was guided to give up Tarot Cards. I will admit, I felt I was guided to them and learned quickly. I channeled spirits and truly believed I was helping people. I will say also, during this time I did not own or read the Bible. It has been just since studying God's Word that I have been shown clarity of my ways.

I John 4:3-6 "Do not put faith in every spirit but prove (test) the spirits to discover whether they proceed from God."

I pray my ignorant attempts to guide other's to goodness was turned in you're favor and not harmful to you're spirit. I believe what is impossible with man is possible with God.

I know that God loves us infinitely even through our mistakes or downfalls. In our weaknesses we become strong through Christ Who strengthens us.

I know for certain we serve an amazingly patient Father who deliver's the brokenness of our ways and gives us the grace of coming to Him directly for direction, answer's, help, comfort, joy and to show us the err of our ways.

His ways are not our ways. God knows everything about us. In this I am free and so are you. 

John 15:16 "You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and I have appointed you, that you might go and bear fruit and keep on bearing that you're fruit may be lasting, so that whatever you ask the father in My Name, He may give it to you!"

My intention is only for good, to do the Will of God and to glorify only Him with all I do, as best as I can as He guides me. We must study His Word to increase our discernment especially these days as spiritual war on our lives seems to be increasing.

In my spirit I sense a separation of God's children, those who are all In for Christ and declaring their Royal position in Christ, by turning from casual to fired up in their spirit. 

People are seeing clearly and turning from the deceptive charmer's who steal words from the bible in attempt to create their own society that suits their own "agenda". The scripture refer's to these as False Prophets who teach the message of appeasement for Popularity rather than the entire truth.

Our teaching is by our actions and words. Our actions backed by the power of the Holy Spirit convinces and draws people to Christ, to the Heavenly realms that exist on this earth plane through God's Supernatural Presence. 

Scripture tells us God will chose and draw people into his love, but we live as consistently obedient to the voice of God and pray for the lost souls to enter in to the gates of heaven through His Spirit while here on earth.

But false teacher's pick and chose to appease the fleshly desires ensnaring with allure of appearance and seduction. They live and teach as pleases them rather than as God instructs. 

Scripture tells us in the last days this will happen and will turn away from God as they pass through like a checklist one deceptive lie after another.

Again, don't be deceived. Peace is not possible with out chaos and there definitely is evil in the world. Peace comes through hearing the Word of God. In His Word there is Power.

This Is a world of light and darkness, good and evil, heaven and hell. People are falling into a traps that seduce their appetite for sin.

God know's us, He knows we slip up and he re-directs our steps. But using his Grace to live with one foot in and one foot out will not cut it. You are free but you have to chose to run with both feet towards God. Trust in, rely on and require Him in all you're ways.

Lately, I have implored His grace for directing me to clarity for His Purposes and to use my life for His glory. This is what I was shown and in my spirit, warned about.

In Ezekiel 13: 6 "They have seen falsehood and lying divination, saying, The Lord say; but the Lord has not sent them. Yet they have hoped and made men to hope for the confirmation of their word.

Ezekiel 13:10 "Because, even because they have seduced My people, saying, Peace, when there is no peace, and because when one builds a flimsy wall, behold these prophets daub it over with whitewash."

Whitewash paints over dirt, filth, graffiti and violations of property. Whitewash looks good on sin enough to continue to paint over sin so it becomes Normal. 

I believe false prophets are ever more present to whitewash over sin and delude God's people and yes, those who are Christians who have declared Jesus in their life. 

I don't want to be a false prophet, to tell you what you want to hear. I am under spiritual scrutiny by my Father, the Lord God and I will never purposely tell people what they want to hear just to be popular and make money. 

Satan comes as an angel of light. We do not serve the universe, statues, crosses, or other idols such as facebook or our cell phones. I cannot be silent anymore when I see the activity of demonic spiritual attack in our society. Yes, my platform is a small one but big enough to reach many countries in the world, which I do. 

I have been asking for the Fire of the Holy Spirit to speak through me and to devote my entire life to Christ. I encourage you to do the same. Don't dilute the magnificence of God's indwelling in you're life. Dedicate all that you do to glorify our amazing Lord.

I pray by the Fire of the Holy Spirit to breathe from this small presence and rather ignite the Spirit of Truth and Power of God's Mighty Presence to overshadow and bring light into the dark places where satan Must GO! By the power and authority In the Name of Jesus Christ I declare Freedom from satanic devices against God's people to be released. By the Power and Authority of Jesus Christ I declare power over satan's attacks to cease and desist!

We can so easily see with our eyes and be blind in believing wrong to be right and right to be wrong. I am committed to doing my part in telling it straight. This is not a time to be concerned about being criticized for following Christ. You're not a victim, you are a Child of the Most High God. KNOW you're position in Christ, you are not defeated and no man has power over God who is in you.

If you care what other's think of you, then you will not care what God thinks of you. Caring too much about being criticized or rejected is a trap of attack on you're soul. Don't fall into it. Stand up, jump and shout about who You believe in. Be the Team leader not the team follower.

Many are called but few are Chosen. Chose and Be Strong in the Lord. Discern spirits. The subtleness in you're gut will be the answer. 

I am talking to believer's in Christ as a sister in the Lord, for those who like me have dabbled in what appear's innocent. I can tell you, look with you're spiritual eyes so you are not deceived. Don't be afraid of giving things up or saying no to people who need you're yes. Say Yes all out to God and He will give you the desires of you're heart.

I can tell you tapping into forms of mediumship or tarot leaves a foothold for demonic attack on you're soul. This is not benign, it is deception. Spirits are real and I believe they can communicate as we open our spiritual sanctuary to anyone? If you leave the door to you're house wide open you are at risk. Why speak to the dead when we can connect directly to the living God and Jesus Christ?

God is the source of everything in this world. He is You're source of all the information you need. He will tell you what you need to know and how to get there "If" you listen. Scripture tells us to not look to false prophets for answer's. 

Ezekiel 13:2 "Say to those who prophesy out of their own mind and heart, Hear the word of the Lord!
Thus says the Lord God: Woe to the foolish prophets who follow their own spirit and have seen nothing!"

Ezekiel 14:9 "The prophet has not been granted permission to give an answer to the hypocritical inquirer, but if the prophet does give the man the answer he desires, I the Lord will see to it that the prophet is deceived in his answer."

Ouch! This Word is good for me. I was shown these scriptures as directed by my prayer's to know for certain the direction God has planned for me from this point forward. 

There are many seeker's of the truth of this life. In my own path I have explored many religions including white witchcraft. I have broadened my view in order to discern the truth and I am not judging for I know it is God who is all powerful, Who can guide us to understanding. His Word is emphatic about rescuing the lost or the imprisoned spirit.

In studying God's Word I have become more familiar with God and His abundant love and grace. His mercies towards us are unfailing and enduring and new every morning. He promised to those who seek Him will find Him. His Joy is ever-present regardless of our circumstances.

God is our deliverer and our strength not just in times of trouble but is alway's present. 

He has shown me His great love as I have been obedient to His guidance. I have seen His miracles of healing in my body, His provisions when I am in need. He has never left me helpless. 

Hebrews 13:5 " For God Himself said, I will Not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. I will not, I will not, I will not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let you down."

This has been my experience. God is a good God, He is a good Father. He adopts us into His Royal Kingdom and we are heirs of his riches. 

Sending this off with all the love to each of you and just know I appreciate you being here, commenting and connecting with me. My prayer's are for all of you who cross this path for you to know God is good and His blessing more than ever lights you're path. 

Seek and you shall find. God is not afar off that He cannot feel our pain or afflictions with compassion. He tells us, So as you believe so shall it be done for You.

Yes, I believe.
