Not Concerned

peaceofGodRecently my prayer partner had a dream about me and I was about to detail it, when the cord came out of my computer. LOL I knew that meant, don’t put it out there. But I will say this. The dream was very clear and although I was not behaving as was shown in the dream, now I am going to make a conscious effort to walk it out. God gave my prayer partner that dream for a reason.

There are some things that we should not even be concerned about. And for those of you who are of the prophetic order like me, if God shows you things in dreams and visions (God-given dreams) and you know from experience that you have an accurate gift, then don’t concern yourself with things that don’t even matter.

What God showed me through my prayer partners dream was profound to say the least. I am amazed at how sometimes the Lord will give me a dream, but sometimes when he gives it to someone else, it has a greater impact for some reason.

Recently, I was venting to my prayer partner and I rehearsed two dreams that God gave me and she said “well that is all you need to know; just trust God” and that is exactly what I am going to do. Meanwhile, I need to focus on the things at hand. The truth is I am NOT CONCERNED.

Philippians 4:7

King James Version (KJV)

7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Turning Point

turning_point_logo_300dpipsd_186102606.24140059_stdI am grateful for the blessings and power that comes through prayer and fasting. This spiritual discipline is vital because when you fast it kills the flesh and you are able to hear God better.

This morning I needed insight on a particular matter and I got it so easily. Now I wonder why I was fretting so. The truth is there is nothing to be concerned about. God is in control when we feel our circumstance is out of control. I have learned a lot about myself through certain circumstances and hopefully I won’t make the same mistakes.

One thing I learned is that I put way to much information out here. Not a good thing to do. I figured it was okay to share here, but again, I shared too much.

I am also realizing that I need to take a minute and breath before reacting, blogging or doing anything. Things are definitely not always what they seem and sometimes they can be downright confusing. So I am learning to sit down and take a “chill pill” as the kids would say.

I am not perfect and I KNOW IT. For some reason there have been two people who have felt I feel I am better than them. I have to laugh at that one. Nothing could be further from the truth. But I understand it. When you are insecure, sometimes you project that onto people. Plus, chalk it up to being  online. If you have never sat in front of someone, heard their voice and felt their presence, how would you really know?

Well, it’s turning point for me and yes, God is making all things new and I am excited. The rest of my day was filled with the peace of God. Only he could give it to me and only he can take it away. I really have nothing to worry about because my life is in HIS hands, and so is yours.

Romans 8:28

King James Version (KJV)

28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

God Knows What He is Doing….

trust 2TRUST HIM!

This morning I was talking to my prayer partner as I usually do and she said two things to me that settled a matter on my heart, ONCE AND FOR ALL. To be honest, it’s something I’ve known for a while because God showed it to me in a dream. Well there was nothing else to say. When she spoke prophetically, it was like a rebuke! It was like God was saying “how dare you NOT believe me daughter”? I’m sorry Lord!

I don’t care what the circumstance LOOKS LIKE, I don’t care what it FEELS LIKE, I don’t care if you don’t understand. God has a reason for allowing it so just TRUST HIM!!

God sees all and knows all. WHO are WE to think we know better than GOD?  I’m done!

Lamentations 3:37

New International Version (NIV)

37 Who can speak and have it happen if the Lord has not decreed it?

Numbers 23:19

King James Version (KJV)

19 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

Change is Good!

Go or stayLast week, I shared that my house was auctioned off and of course I had to move and I can’t say that I have shed one tear about it. Change is good! It was time to go and the story about that house has not yet been completely told, but, it was time for me to move.

God had prepared me for this, when I didn’t want to hear it. I received a Word from a prophet not too long ago that stated “God is going to make you move”. Of course I understood it when I got it, but was still somewhat in denial. Then I had a dream many years ago that my sister (who lives up the street) gave me the keys to her apartment, car, etc. and even though I had the dream many years ago, I kind of knew it had to do with leaving the house.

So, my friend in North Carolina offered her home, until I figured out which direction to go in and I accepted not really sure what to do. But as I began to seek the Lord, He reminded me that Florida would connect me with my destiny.

During this time of transition, God kept saying to take one day at a time and following that made my move smooth. Whenever I tried to look ahead and anticipate the next day, things got stressful. When I tell you, each day, God gave me direction, that is exactly how it happened. As long as I took one day at a time, I was fine.

So with things in storage and bags packed to go to North Carolina, I didn’t have a peace about it at all. Then Sunday I turned on one of my favorite ministers and he was preaching a message called “This is the place”. In the message he stressed that this is the place God called you to and God said “stay right here” and that He (God) was going to open a door. Well that is exactly what happened.

Yesterday while laughing and talking with my sister, I shared what God told me about staying in Florida and how North Carolina was just a stopover and my sister simply said “well you can stay right here”.

Before I knew it, we went to the rental office and got an extra key and the dream I had many years ago was fulfilled. I also believe I may be returning to my former church because it’s all about connecting to destiny.

Someone once called me Dora the Explorer and I have to chuckle every time I think about it. I can’t look at this in a negative way AT ALL. God’s hand is all up in it and there is so much more that I cannot share, but I know I am absolutely in my kairos moment! There is more to come and the testimony is going to blow you away. Just wait and see.

When I think about the house I left, I just want to leap for joy because I am SO GLAD to be gone. The Lord has much better and sometimes we can’t see it until we have moved on. It’s simply amazing. I can’t wait to see what is next. This is an exciting journey.

Don’t be afraid to surrender to God and follow him. Yield to HIS plan fully and watch Him work. Even if it get’s uncomfortable, know that He is with you. And remember that CHANGE IS GOOD!

Proverbs 3:5-6

New International Version (NIV)

5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.[a]

Love Series: No Need for Jealousy

jealousy I have to start this post by saying I do not have a jealous nature. Some people are like that by nature. I am blessed in that I rarely feel jealousy. Have I ever been jealous? Of course, but it’s not a problem that I have.

Some people speak about jealousy as though it’s always bad. I think it’s bad when you start to do bad things to hurt a person. I think jealousy is bad when it turns to envy. But the truth is, a little jealousy is not always bad.

Sometimes a man getting jealous, means that he cares about you and if you didn’t know it, it can be a good indicator. As long has that person doesn’t start trying to make you jealous back or tries to hurt you. it’s okay.

But some jealousy is unfounded. In my last post, I shared a story about how God allowed someone to come along to help heal me and build my self-esteem back up. It’s not like we dated or even talked on the phone. It was just a fun time that God allowed for healing and that is the truth.

This came at a strategic time, when I was feeling and actually was being rejected. I was observing something that brought me great pain and God gave me a nice distraction.

Sometimes when we reject our gift, or ignore our gift, someone else will come along and admire it and take our place, even if for a season. And YES that goes both ways. I don’t want to be accused of being judgmental and one-sided.

Yes, God told me I would watch some stuff go down about my future. But that doesn’t mean it wasn’t painful and that doesn’t mean God did not need to send a distraction for healing, but the truth is that is ALL it was and all it will ever be, because I know he is not the man for me.

Sometimes our jealousy is not based in reality. Don’t waste your time being jealous of someone who is not even in the picture and don’t waste your time getting back at that person and trying to hurt them. You don’t want to drive them away for good!  And YES, that goes both ways. 😉

Song of Solomon 8:6

New King James Version (NKJV)

The Shulamite to Her Beloved

Set me as a seal upon your heart,
As a seal upon your arm;
For love is as strong as death,
Jealousy as cruel as the grave;[a]
Its flames are flames of fire,
A most vehement[b] flame.

Fools Rush In Pt. 2

ShotgunWeddingI must be honest. I’ve checked out where something is concerned. After all, who wants to fight for something alone? I mean this is the kind of thing that makes me get angry with God. (it’s the truth)

I really don’t want to fight for someone who has joined forces with someone else. I just don’t want to do it. But here we go.

My prayer partner has another dream the other day. She saw two rings (engagement and wedding band) and they were put on two different fingers at the same time. I knew that meant that someone would be trying to get engaged and married at the same time. Later in the dream she saw her friend but the woman was older. I knew that person represented me and I knew I would not be getting the cyber rings.

So I knew God was letting me know things would be getting worse before it got better. Although I know this is not going to play out in the flesh, I am already seeing it in cyberspace. Yeah that darn cyberspace.

I know God is just showing me I have to get back in the battle. There is this dog that just WILL NOT DIE, even though this is not her promise. She has been made to think it’s her’s by the man. Well of course she is not going to let it go. He appears to love her and want to be with her so why should she let go?  I feel until he makes it clear they are not going to be with each other, what am I supposed to do?

Meanwhile, I still receive communication, but truly some people just don’t GET IT! Put yourself in the other persons place for once. WHY would I even want to fight for someone who doesn’t even like me that way?? Does that makes sense and claims to love and want to marry someone else?

In my mind, if it’s God it will come to pass provided someone doesn’t make a choice for something that is not God will. We do have a choice, but that is on the person. At this point, what can I do?? If someone has an answer for this question, please tell me?

Well, I guess I meant to say, if you do decide to exercise your free will for something you want, don’t be a fool and RUSH IN!

Psalm 27:14

New King James Version (NKJV)

14 Wait on the Lord;
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the Lord!
