Shaking is coming…

***Going into 2012 there is going to be a testing of your faith & your Lordship walk***

He's coming back for a Holy bride and in order for Him to come back there has to be a shaking of the church where all the grey areas of our walk are challenged and we only see black and white. There is going to be a shaking...our priorities will be changed. He is coming back for a Holy church.


The main 2 areas people fail in walking in Lordship is Not think you are adequate and not willing to change.

 
Matthew 1:18 Mary & Joseph are real people just like us. Josephs plans are radically changed.

 
Luke 1:29-35 how will this happen? I am a virgin.


*Anytime God speaks a plan into your life into action...there is always a shaking.

 
More people fail in the shaking because we don't feel like we are good enough, strong enough to do what He called us to do. We don't think we are enough to do what He's called us to do. The beauty of Him calling you into something is not for your glory. Run from the one's that act like they deserve to be called. Humbling is coming. I'm not strong enough, wise enough, smart enough.

Joseph has a plan of his own. Found a pretty girl in the church and God shook up the plans and blindsides us and the plan changes.


The plan can change because finances fail, sickness takes a loved one, jobs are loss, marriages end and one partner didn't want the marriage to end. The changes are NOT always good...you don't know what to do or where to turn and you will need to depend on God.


Life & change happen but the hand of God is there.
Change happens and we don't like change or when God changes our plan.
Don't let your faith be based on the outcome of what you are walking through.
We cannot be those people to create a way to be prepared...be prepared ahead of time. Be ready constantly in the word and prayer. Desire to look like HIM in the end. Be concerned with our personal walk.


Shaking is coming.


Recognize when you've dismissed Him because things in your life aren't turning out like you planned.


I'm your servant, let it happen as you desire...let your Word be so.

Lone Elk Park in Jeopardy of Being Closed



I just read an article* that one of St. Louis' greatest parks, Lone Elk Park, is on the top of the counties list of parks to be closed. The article lists that there are 20 parks that will possibly close in the St. Louis County area...another big one on the list is the famous waterway...George Winter Park.




This news has me bummed out. I've gone to Lone Elk Park since I was a kid and have fond memories of great times there. Currently we live close enough to get to there within about 8 minutes.




Lone Elk Park is a wildlife management area, with bison, wild turkey, waterfowl, elk and deer. When I was a kid we used to go on guided hiking tours there and now my daughter enjoys Geocaching there.




If you live in Missouri and have been to Lone Elk Park, hopefully you have grown an appreciation for the park as my family and I have. If so, please take a moment and flood the phone lines of St. Louis County requesting that they remove "Lone Elk Park" from their proposed parks closing list. Contact Charlie Dooley at 314.615.7016 or email him at cdooley@stlouisco.com.

A Night of Worship

A friend of mine blessed me with a ticket to Chris Tomlin's "A Night of Worship" concert here in St. Louis on Friday night. It was quite amazing that she even thought of asking me to go. I was blessed beyond measure! My husband and daughter were also given tickets on Friday from someone at my husband's work and that was also quite amazing. Funny thing is, I was going to buy us tickets and knew we shouldn't spend the money on that right now so I exited the webpage and said, if God wants us to be there...we'll be there...well, looks like He wanted us to be there!!! :)

Not only was the Night of Worship AMAZING but so was sitting on the floor level during the concert and the Meet N Greet that was included with our tickets...WOW!!!

Thanks friend...you sure blessed me!!!

The Supernatural - Living a Life of Holiness

1) It shapes our worldview

2) It defines how we walk through our life

3) walk by Faith - believe God whether I get the outcome I want or not. God moves according to His will and not according to our faith. If I can dictate to Him when He moves then I am playing God.

4) Fear holds us back...fear of the unknown

5) trying to establish our own kingdom

6) unbelief holds us back

7) living a life of holiness

How do we walk out the holy life. If I don't walk holy, no one around me will see holiness.

Galatians 5:16-18 you are not to do whatever you want.

A holy life has to be led by the Spirit and walked out according to Him and His will.

If you wake up and your day is all about you then you are NOT walking holy. Most Christians spend their whole week walking in the flesh however they want. If everything is about you then something is off.

Wake up everyday and be led by the Spirit.

Galatians 5:19 - 21 the acts of the flesh are OBVIOUS: sexual immorality, impurity, and debauchery, idolarty, hatred, discord, witchcraft, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambitions, dissensions, factions and envy, drunkedness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will NOT inherit the Kingdom of God.

Don't try to be the Holy Spirit and do His job by judging those walking in the sin. He hates that you walk in sin.

What a life CAN look like:

Galatians 5:22-24 The fruit of the Spirit love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, faithfulness, goodness, self-control & crucify the flesh (the I wants/ I do's).

2Peter 1:3 -4 His divine power has given us everything to escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires. 2 Peter 1:5 -11 for this reason, make every effort to add to your faith
