I Want To Be More Than Just Me

I Want To Be More Than Just Me

I want to be a writer. I believe I would be a good one. Distractions come my way.  Ideas that are deposited in me are snuffed out. My memory fails  so I don’t remember the snippets that would make for a great story. My recorder is forgotten and the creative flow is dammed up. No matter what tries to stop me I will put words on paper until I accomplish what I set out to do.

I want to be an artist. My paintings are beautiful. Many have said so. Full of color and life that draws you in to become a part of the community. Then appears an old nemesis fear slithering in with the same old plan to steal, kill and destroy. For some strange reason I succumb to those old outdated tricks. All my creativity comes to a halt. I’m shut down and can’t deliver. I’m telling that voice to shut up and I’m arming myself with my paint brush, paint and canvas and going to war.

I want to be a musician. Music was built in me before I was born. It’s always playing in my ear. Sometimes songs I’ve heard. Other times songs that are being birthed. There are also personal songs that are between me and my Lord. When music starts dancing fills in my feet. Melodies circle me. How do I capture them and express them? I lift my voice and sing. I’ll dance with the broom while sweeping my floors. I’ll be the best pianist that ever tickled the ivory keys.

My goal is to conquer the fleeting moments of creativity and let the masterpieces flow from my being. I will express the ideas that come forth from the Throne room at the time they are to be released. I believe I can and I will.

I want to be more than just me. This is me!

Is there anything that is preventing the creativity in you from coming forth?

The Feast Of Trumpets

The first of the Fall Feasts of the Lord 2017 started at sundown September 20 through September 21. It’s called Feast Of Trumpets. It is called Yom T’rooah in Hebrew. It is also known as Rosh Hashanah, Head of the Year, and is celebrated as the Jewish New Year.

The blowing of the Shofar announces God’s Manifest Presence.

Exodus 19:13; Leviticus 23; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

In the picture above of the apple and honey represent God’s provision and sweetness that He will manifest to us in the coming year.

#atozchallenge – We All Praise YAH – James Vincent

We All Praise YAH – James Vincent

We all praise YAH during our times of trials

We all praise YAH our God

When seasons change

Faithful One you stay the same

We all praise YAH our God

For the One who was

And the One who is

For the One who’s coming again

We all praise YAH we all praise YAH

We all praise YAH our God

When the days grow dim

Surety of the life has passed

Into the hands of men like me

I will lift my eyes

For He is my Hope

And I will still praise

YAH my God

#atozchallenge – Wade in the Water

Wade In The Water – Negro Spiritual

Wade in the water

Wade in the water, children,

Wade in the water

God’s a-going to trouble the water

See that host all dressed in white

God’s a-going to trouble the water

The leader looks like the Israelite

God’s a-going to trouble the water

See that band all dressed in red

God’s a-going to trouble the water

Looks like the band that Moses led

God’s a-going to trouble the water

Look over yonder, what do you see?

God’s a-going to trouble the water

The Holy Ghost a-coming on me

God’s a-going to trouble the water

If you don’t believe I’ve been redeemed

God’s a-going to trouble the water

Just follow me down to the Jordan’s stream

God’s a-going to trouble the water

Release the Angels

  Meredith Mauldin

Release the angels

at the sound of

the sound of your praise

Release the angel

to guide us into all of your ways

Your kingdom come

Your will be done

Prepare the way for the coming of your throne

Release the angels

To make ready the way of the King

Release the angels

To fight in the battle unseen

Your kingdom come

Your will be done

Prepare the way for the coming of your Son

Let your praise ring up to the sky

Heavens open up wide

I’ll praise Your name

Let the angels fly

Release the angels

To make ready the way of the King

Release the angels

To fight in the battle unseen

Your kingdom come

Your will be done

Prepare the way for the coming of your Son

Your kingdom come

Your will be done

Prepare the way for the coming of your Son

Release the angels…

Release the angels…

Release the angels…

Release the angels…

Thank you Lord for releasing the Angels to war on our behalf.

 

Sheila’s Stoney Heart, His Spirit

Ezekiel 36:26-27-The Voice
26 I will plant a new heart and new spirit inside of you. I will take out your stubborn, stony heart and give you a willing, tender heart of flesh. 27 And I will put My Spirit inside of you and inspire you to live by My statutes and follow My laws.

Sheila’s life was not a picture of good fortune and great blessings. Over the course of the years one tragedy after another occurred in her life. There was no one to comfort her, help her through the trying times. As a result of the trials and tribulations her heart grew harder and harder until she couldn’t feel anything. Sheila had become a crotchety old woman in her young age.

She didn’t have a friend. Her relatives avoided her. Family gatherings always ended up in arguments. Her invitations became few and far between. Sheila couldn’t help herself—she didn’t know how to stop causing trouble and wanted everyone to feel the pain she felt. Everyone was against her—or so she thought. She spent many nights crying herself to sleep.

One evening Sheila was flipping through the channels on her television. Back and forth, back and forth she flipped, not finding anything that struck her fancy. I’m not watching that minister on that Christian channel. I don’t want to hear what he has to say. After going through the channels a few more times she gave in and watch the minister.

Someone just tuned in who’s had many tragedies throughout their life. Nothing seemed to go right. The Lord is saying to you if you will release your stony heart to Him, He will replace it with a new tender heart of flesh. He will also put His Spirit in you and inspire you to live your life for Him. He said don’t be afraid. He has it all worked out for you—a glorious transformation and a new life-like you’ve never lived before. He loves you with an everlasting love and He wants to shed His everlasting love in your heart.

Sheila was stunned. The minister was speaking to her. She thought her life would always be the same—sorrow and no joy. Sheila fell to her knees and cried out to The Lord. I release my stony heart to you Lord. I receive a new heart of flesh. Put your Spirit inside me and inspire me to live for you. I believe I’ve been transformed. Thank you.

In an instant it felt like a weight was lifted off Sheila. She felt free-free to be. I won’t turn back. I won’t let anyone steal this from me.

Love Your Neighbor

Love your neighbor as yourself

This is what the Good News tells us to do

Check your heart to see if you love you

If you find you can’t you have work to do

Get to know the Great I AM

That’s where love originates

When He touches your heart

A burning fire will start

It will never end

Only seems like it begins again every day

It’s too hot to hold

You have to give it away

Then you will learn how to love your neighbor
