Here I am, thinking about life.  And it is so amazing when we look at things spiritually.  All that know me, know I try to live a transparent life...this is online as well as off line.  I tend to share details only because we all have "details" in our lives, and I am not at all ashamed of my life nor the choices I have made in life.  If I have made wrong decisions, I share them...to help the next person along : )  Many tell me I should not do this, but I tend to do what I want : ) and sharing my life is something I do, because it's where we learn the most lessons.

 

With that being said, my question to you is, is there anything in your life, God is trying to remove, but you are fighting tooth and nail to hold on to?  Well, I have been fighting with the Lord's will for a few years now, and it's all over a car!  Yes, a car!  Not a man, but a car!  When I first purchased my car, I loved it.  I am a "natures" girl, so I truly loved my convertable.  But, over the last few years, with my career being effected by the economy, I have been struggling to make my car payments.  Now, with in the last few months, I have started the process to start two businesses, one is For-Profit, the other Non-Profit...but because of this "Car", I have had "NO PROFIT" to put into starting the businesses.  And the one thing holding me back, has been my car.  During the time I have been working on my business plans, the Holy Spirit has been whispering in my ear to give my car back.  But of course, me being me...I kept saying "Huh????"  and kept it moving.  And as I said, I have been struggling with this for a few months now.  Well...the Lord has finally had HIS way with me.  I have surrendered the car.  But the funny thing is, once I decided in my mind to be obedient, it was as if the entire path was paved for me to do everything I had to do.  And it's as if a burden has been lifted, and I am moving full speed ahead, in the direction I was directed to go in.  And as I made this decision, the Lord, whispering to my spirit, has been saying..."I know the plans I have for you.  They are not plans to hurt you, but to prosper you."  And I am sitting here smiliong.  I am smiling first because I have really been behaving as a stubborn child of the Kingdom, kicking and screaming at my Fathers command.  But HE, with Love, Grace and Mercy, just held me by the hand and helped me release this "car".  I know this sounds crazy, but it showed me...what are we often holding on to, because we don't understand something, that God is trying to remove from our lives to grow us?  Yes, a voluntary Repo does not sound like anything any one would advise me to do.  But when you are being instructed by the One that controls EVERYTHING...is it really all that crazy?  Well of course I will keep everyone updated on what happens...<smh>  I love being a child of God.

 

Thank you Jesus for teaching me obedience, even when it makes NO earthly since!

Tonight, after I finished doing some reading of blogs, I was shutting down the computer to read my Bible, and I checked my email one last time. And I am sharing this message. All we have to do is trust our Lord. Things may not make earthly since to us, but they are all a part of His heavenly plan.

"I am bringing you into alignment on every level. It is My will to position you properly so that My purposes can be accomplished and My kingdom established. You may not think that you, as an individual, have much to do with destiny. But, everything you think, say, or do is vitally important to the spiritual condition of your sphere of influence. Be diligent to demonstrate the kingdom."

"You have been repositioned as you have had to let go of many things that once meant everything too you. This has been for the purpose of establishing you in greater spiritual reality with renewed strength and vitality. You have stepped into a time of being reconnected to your spiritual roots yet with refreshing revelation."

"The days ahead will be filled with My glory in the practical and commonplace things of life as you maintain awareness and see My manifest presence in unexpected ways. Walk in the Spirit and be available."

"Events that left you reeling and trying to find stability and balance will now truly become a thing of the past as you begin to realize how insignificant it all was as compared with eternity and destiny. The power of My healing and restoration will become evident as you are able to release those who caused you pain. Forgiveness is essential to redemption."

"I have established an altar in the heavenlies, in the realm of the Spirit, where you can bring all that concerns you, things you can do nothing about, and things you have absolutely no control over. Leave them with Me and release your fear and anxiety. Nothing is impossible with Me. Come into that place of peace and rest, trusting Me in all things."

"You feel like you've been cut off, but this cutting off has only been from those things that needed to be put aside at this time. You are like a tree that has been cut off and banded so that your spiritual roots could go deeper and you could become stronger. Let your roots go deeper in the Word, in revelation, and relationship to Me. The day of release will come in due season."

"There are times when you feel totally disconnected and alone. This is because the enemy of your soul has lied to you and tried to isolate and weaken you. But, that is not My design or plan for you. Now is the time to reconnect spiritually, first to Me, and then to those who are Mine. Take the time and make the effort to re-establish yourself in divine connections and kingdom purpose."

"Allow Me to take you forward inch by inch, step by step, without fear or worry. I am with you and will open doors that no man can shut and to shut doors that no man can open. Trust Me with your future. I have already proven to you over and over again that I alone am your place of security, says the Lord."
Marva...girl I have never had such a happy peaceful feeling. I see the change in my heartand it is ALL the changing and trusting of Our Lord.
