You Are Worthy

You Were Made for This.

There are too many people in the world and in the church who feel unworthy. They feel unworthy to receive the love of God. Unworthy to be His child representing Him here on earth. Unworthy to walk in His Spirit. They even feel unworthy to use the gifts and talents God freely gave them. This lack of worth permeates our lives and stops us from doing what we are supposed to be doing to serve the Kingdom of God. We become paralyzed which is exactly what the devil wants.

 We point to you as an example of unwavering faith for all the churches of God. We boast about how you continue to demonstrate unflinching endurance through all the persecutions and painful trials you are experiencing. All of this proves that God’s judgment is always perfect and is intended to make you worthy of inheriting the kingdom of God, which is why you are going through these troubles.

The Passion Translation

So, we are worthy no matter what we are going through of inheriting the Kingdom of God. We are worthy to receive all that God has for us as His children. We can change.

We can rest in the fact our suffering will be fruitful in the end.

By God’s Grace.

Being in the Now

Being Present with Jesus

When I have a positive attitude about life, when I’m reading Scripture with a now mindset, and doing tasks — even the mundane — with a focus on God and love, I’m in the now. The now moment is described as a loss of time or being outside of time. The now moment is that white moment when everything in the world falls away except the one thing I’m doing. That moment is the place of peace that surpasses all understanding, of transcendent knowing and perfect healing.

Love is pure, honest and unconditional in the now moment. For example, I feel agape love when I behold my children in awe; that is the now. My words are more caring and I’m more loving to myself and others in the here and now.

When I’m not used to staying in the present moment it can be a challenge to get there. If I’m really distracted and unable to center myself at my foundation, I repeat the name Jesus over-and-over again. I can meditate to seek the now and allow myself to unplug from the world. I quiet my spirit, mind and body to plug into God in my core. The key is focusing on His love and my heartbeat or breathing.

I become increasingly aware of everything around me and in me once I connect. This is the place where Holy Spirit teaches me, where Jesus tells me He loves me, and where I can revere God’s handiwork more authentically. Just saying, being in the now is a wonderful present.

Excerpt from my Book: Hardwired for Purpose: Blazing Trails to Follow God’s Lead (Book 2 of 3)

Podcast: The Heart & Shalom, S1E29

Hardwired for Life: Season 1, Episode 29

 

 

The heart is said in Scripture to be like a stone, deceitful and destructive, but it’s also sincere, delightful and full of desires from God. Actions we take from our hearts are driven by our motivations. We can focus on the negative or we can rise above and seek Shalom in every area of our lives. Our feet walk the paths laid out by our hearts, so it’s important to know which path we’ll take.

Podcast: Healing Restoration & Love

Encounters: Season 1, Episode 22

 

 

We entered in to see a pool of water as deep as the earth and talked about its depths, life and healing love. God is healing the body of Christ through love for His people and planet. The darkness doesn’t have a chance. God loves us and will deliver us to care for ourselves and others.

Podcast: The Giraffe & Shalom

Encounters: Season 1, Episode 21

 

 

We saw some amazing things that led us into a discussion about God’s intentions for healing the nations. There were many animals coming together in peace and love. We are Americans and we have a long way to go in our church body to help other nations. We do help, but what are the church’s motives? Where is our heart for others?

Podcast: Biggg Strawberry

Encounters: Season 1, Episode 20

 

 

The fruit of the Spirit of God is ready to harvest, but are we? How do we test the fruit and what measurements can we use? This episode digs into what happens to the fruit we produce and what the angels do to help.

We are a bit drunk in the Spirit during the first part, so stay tuned for the meat.

Podcast: Be Still for Restoration

Encounters: Season 1, Episode 18

 

 

Today is a great day for restoration and healing. The key will be to be still. God is really going to move in this coming season—very soon. He is showing us that He is already working and making provision for the coming power and anointing that He will deposit within us. Get ready!

Remember Verse 24?

Worship in All We Do

Yes, We Know. Now what?

Our goal must be to empower others to do what is right and good for them, and to bring them into spiritual maturity.” — Romans 15:2 The Passion Translation (TPT)

This verse is one that we take very seriously. It’s our song. It’s our cry to the world as we navigate God’s love in Worship. It resonates in our hearts as servants of the Highest God. We want so much for the Bride of Christ to be ready for His return.

We work, eat, sleep and pray in Worship. We sing we dance, and we cry as we keep our eyes on Him.

Is it enough?

Is it righteous? Is it my truth? Only you can answer these questions. Can you say, “yes”? Can I?

God does have expectations for us regarding Worship.

God wants our whole being to Worship Him. We have learned in church that we must do everything for and to the Lord. We have experienced renewed minds as we consciously remember to Worship Him in our day. This is good. But have we surrendered all we can?

Put your heart and soul into every activity you do, as though you are doing it for the Lord himself and not merely for others.  For we know that we will receive a reward, an inheritance from the Lord, as we serve the Lord Yahweh, the Anointed One!” — Colossians 3:23-24 (TPT)

The beauty of this verse and what it really means is knowing that we will receive a reward from Jesus. Personally, I can forget that.

I can easily fall into the trap of only remembering verse 23.
