Round of Applause

Round Of Applause

Not for Legal Jobs
Congrats for that
For following Christ
Round Of Applause
For rejecting anything not of Christ
Even for a moment
I realize
Like AA
This Christian thing is

Following Christ
Is like trying to be sober

Sometimes it’s second by second
Sometimes
We have to forgive ourselves
Admit
We cannot do ANYTHING on our own
Step 1
Of AA is sufficient for me
Everyday
It’s hard
And it’s not
Just major league painful right now
Being sober
Being Christian
Forgiving
Living

Forgiving myself
How?
When I know I’ll do something else
Somewhere
I am now
Indulging in self pity?
Naw…
How can one INDULGE in self pity?
How can one ENJOY pitying themselves?
Enjoy being a victim?
Unless…
They somehow believe they aren’t
A victim

That they are faking you out

Guess what?
Fake me out

That’s why I LOVE the verse that says: if you lead my little ones astray…intentionally…woe, whoa, to you, to them that intentionally deceive.

The suckers in life

That verse is for us

For me

When I look at myself
I cry
For I am weak
I am ugly
I sin
Without trying

When I look at You
I smile thru my tears
For YOUR gaze is sooo compassionate
Understanding
I cannot bear it
So without lifting my head
I offer up myself
My dis-ease
My affliction
My addiction

We are ALL drug addicts
We are ALL sin addicts

I admit it
Hi, I’m a sinaholic

Workers in Christ

Matthew 9

36 Seeing the people, He felt compassion for them, because they were distressed and dispirited like sheep without a shepherd.

37 Then He *said to His disciples, The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.

38 Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.

There are Sowers, there are Reapers, there are Water Bearers and Fertilizers (those who give meat).

Then there are the many various ways in which to do the above.

And then, there are the various cultures/mindsets/backgrounds, in which understanding will come!

I beseech Thee, oh Lord of the Harvest, Elohim, to send more workers in Thy Field of Humanity, in Yeshua’s holy name, I pray, amen.

The Lord a Refuge and Defense

Psalm 11

1 In the Lord I take refuge;

How can you say to my soul, “Flee as a bird to your mountain;

2 For, behold, the wicked bend the bow, They make ready their arrow upon the string To shoot in darkness at the upright in heart.

3 If the foundations are destroyed,

What can the righteous do?”

4 The Lord is in His holy temple; the Lord’s throne is in heaven;

His eyes behold, His eyelids test the sons of men.

5 The Lord tests the righteous and the wicked, And the one who loves violence His soul hates.

6 Upon the wicked He will rain snares; Fire and brimstone and burning wind will be the portion of their cup.

7 For the Lord is righteous, He loves righteousness;

The upright will behold His face.

May putting/reading more verses bless you more has it has been for me! 😄 In Yeshua’s holy name, I pray. Amen.

Along with my daily reading of the Bible, Psalm 3 and Psalm 4 have been added daily too.

Since I have begun this additional daily regiment, my chronic pain has decreased, I am no longer thinking such negative, depressing thoughts (I wm chipper again) AND!

My prayers seem to die or fall into a void, in certain places (like Seattle (& Tacoma (for those who have kept up! 😁)…

Now?! I have had things on my to do list I wanted to check out, etc (like United healthcare (combines Medicare & Medicaid) (& get this!…<drumroll please> it pays $2 thou on dental! I have been praying hard on a way to get my root canal & crown paid for! & ! 😁) When I walked into the day shelter, who had a table in the corner? United Healthcare!)

A without doubt Elohim did this! 😘

Thank You Love! 😍)

I knew an increase was/is needed!

How and where, I did not know.

I remember blogging, What More Do I Need to Do?!

Me entirely frustrated, at the end of my rope!

When the Lord answers?

😭🤩

<tears>

Joyful tears

The ones that spill

When someone has done something so wonderful! 😁

So amazing, so loving…so thoughtful…

<sigh>😙 (A Waiting to Exhale Moment, one you didn’t even know you had!)

<tears>

When Elohim answers prayers in your heart, you didn’t even know you had?

😭🤩😘

Tis why I love You like I do! 😁

I scream it from mountain tops!

I never felt love like this before! 😁

And I am ever so grateful to experience You like this before I get married…

Before I experience such from a human…😊

(I was reminded often of dude with the Lions? 😄 How his prayers was not answered for like 6 months?

DANIEL! 😁

Because the Angel sent by Elohim was delayed by the demon of the area? To the point where Michael, the Archangel, needed to be involved?

Well, I have often wondered, what would have helped the Angel?…

I believe the addition of Psalm 3 &4…

Helped…! 😁 Hallelujah!

May the same happen for you! In Yeshua’s holy name, amen! 😁🙋🏾‍♀️

What Does It Mean To Lose One’s Soul?

How does it feel?

What does it look like?

Better yet, how does it feel to NOT lose one’s soul?

What does THAT look like? 🤩

Answering the second one, is much easier for me! Hallelujah!

For saving is a process, just like being unsaved, was or is!

A perpetual machine has been made (is at work as we communicate) to steal (kill & destroy) your soul!

What IS your soul?

As I was taught, per disciple training, via Min Doris/New Life Covenant Chicago (Central Campus, whatz up! 😁)…

The soul is composed of 3 parts:

The Mind,

The Body

AND the Spirit!

Many believe the Spirit & the Soul are one & the same!

I believe the Soul is where the 3 combine…

What science today calls our subconscious. (The Id would be man’s attempt at labelling (controlling) more of the unknown).

The discussion of the Id borders on one’s Nature, as in one’s spirit…

I do not like where such discussions go, where all such discussions go without Elohim.

The World/Society (Atheistic Science/business/everything) does it’s best to CONVINCE humanity that it is naturally evil (ie: https://hbr.org/2019/07/why-people-get-away-with-being-rude-at-work?ab=hero-main-text)

I am here to REMIND you!….

That the MAJORITY of the world (this planet/humanity) will CHOOSE evil/wickedness,

THERE ARE THOSE WHO NEVER WILL!

There are those who will learn to NOT choose evil/wickedness!

Those who will learn NOT to harden their hearts,

Those who will choose the CONSEQUENCES of keeping their hearts open, to right-use-ness, to Love, to compassion, to mercy, to Yeshua/Holy Spirit/Elohim!

A very tall, cool glass of water, to those who thirst! Hallelujah!

For Seeds looking to sprout! Searching to produce the fruits of the Holy Spirit!

A Reminder, ya’ll!

As I too seperate myself/shown evil/wickedness I knew not of! An environment I was raised in!

May the Holy Spirit show you such things, with His Love, Mercy & Grace!

It feels like death!

Like watching yourself be numb,

Unable to stop it!

To believe that it is ok! That it is better, INSTEAD OF knowing!

In your heart, in your soul, it is the right thing to do!

Where one’s heart sings!

That is the Holy Spirit’s reward to you for CHOOSING right-use-ness/Him! 😄

My Ways Are Not Your Ways

Lean Not On Your Understanding

For I Have Chosen Thee.

So I ask why hast Thou not chosen them?

Those closest to me? My loved ones?

Is this how You feel for each one of us?

Will I get any rest tonight? (currently 4:23a been awake since 2:15… graveyard shift, eh? What is the name of the shift from 1 or 2a – 9 or 10am? Is there such a thing?)

For this eating of one”s soul, watching my loved ones harden themselves…

I do trust You Lord!

What I see may not be permanent (for life), yet it is so very painful to watch!

To see,

To have words

Not understood,

To have them fail me

For…

I did not hear once too

I heard

And did Not respond

Until it was all my spirit COULD hear!

For Thou were yelling! (Thunder & Lighting spoke to me)

Now I learn how love speaks,

As the devoid tries to copy Thee. 😁

Failing miserably, hallelujah! 😁

No weapon formed against me shall prosper!

Ty Lord for saving me!

From the daily machine, that slowly but surely, kills the soul.

I prefer the pain of a righteous death, one chosen, in the Way.

In the Truth, the Way & the LIFE!

(small things, like verse abnormalities, are not so small…

Indicators of lack of desire to be better…

In how one responds to such a transgression…

The How & the Why are more important than the What.

For what you see & hear change before what you do!

Only Elohim sees such.

It is ok to cry for them

It is another to change another

Or to change oneself!

For neither can we/I do.

Just pray…

Just praise…

And more shall be added unto thee.

In Yeshua’s holy name I pray, Amen!

🙏🏽

Job 17:4

Evening Prayer of Trust in God

Psalm 4

For the choir director; on stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.

1 Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness!

You have relieved me in my distress;
Be gracious to me and hear my prayer.

2 O sons of men, how long will my honor become a reproach?
How long will you love what is worthless and aim at deception? Selah.

3 But know that the Lord has set apart the godly man for Himself;
The Lord hears when I call to Him.

4 Tremble, and do not sin; Meditate in your heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah.

5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness,
And trust in the Lord.

6 Many are saying, “Who will show us any good?” Lift up the light of Your countenance upon us, O Lord!

7 You have put gladness in my heart,
More than when their grain and new wine abound.

8 In peace I will both lie down and sleep, For You alone, O Lord, make me to dwell in safety.

(Night time prayers! Now I lay me down to sleep…)

Morning Prayer of Trust in God

Psalm 3

A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son.

1 O Lord, how my adversaries have increased! Many are rising up against me.

2 Many are saying of my soul,

“There is no deliverance for him in God.” Selah.

3 But You, O Lord, are a shield about me, My glory, and the One who lifts my head.

4 I was crying to the Lord with my voice, And He answered me from His holy mountain. Selah.

5 I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the Lord sustains me.

6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people Who have set themselves against me round about.

7 Arise, O Lord; save me, O my God!

For You have smitten all my enemies on the cheek; You have shattered the teeth of the wicked.

8 Salvation belongs to the Lord; Your blessing be upon Your people! Selah.

(Something I will be memorizing every morning inshallah)
