I’m learning

sometimes

we don’t want

to discuss or be healed

of trauma

as much as inflict it at will

yet The Lord Is no less our Shepherd.

 

Apt to see others

unlike ourselves

as alien, unfamiliar to His Reign

Black

holes without Holy purpose

who respond only to enchantment (*) or harsh exposure

 

To hate facets of GOD

fancying only your reflection of His Image

denies both letter & Spirit That Read:

let each esteem other better than themselves.

 

Only by His Grace

do we have another moment

to surrender our Selves yet die later

eyes opened to The Mercy

simply Asking that we live in kind

 

See/k & kiss The Son

from a lifted veil

Wise, Cherished Bride

Living Well

 

Therein

I see the value

of different learning styles

more than ever

Grateful

for John, intuitive

Thomas, visual/tactile

you & I, who may need a while or wild ride to stop seeing in part

although through glass, dark…

 

Enough said

Lives matter.

Love matters.

Right your lines.

Study & prove The Master’s Goodness

in due time.

Ms. Me

Because God’s Love Flows

I’ to ‘you’ to ‘we’…with that

“I” on possible

Vision beyond man’s insight

Guides His Chosen’s Way.

 

Wherever understanding

wouldn’t rest, they cried

but Miss?” as if in protest.

 

We’re ever understanding

how “no”, “yes” both bless

some saying “Thanks Miss!” in peace.

 

Likewise, let’s Seek Him

connect while He May Be Found

yet near… “Miss, I’m ti’ed… .”

 

Without God, I would be too.

Please allow me to

(re-)introduce you to Him.

G.P.S.

Where once I allowed busy-ness
to distract my focus, forgetting to share His Goodness
I have since been Inspired by His Peace to let Truth flow

so much so
every testimony reminds me how
far we’ve come as well
as the room we have yet
to grow with/in Him

There’s no avoidance to see here
but by accomplishment of Most High Purpose
according to His Guidance, Protection & Sovereignty

There are boys, scoundrels, gentlemen, princes, those who groom us unto our best selves, kings
but GOD Is One
above & beyond them.

There are girls, s(l)ides, princesses, those who are ladies even in waiting, longsuffering; brides, queens
but GOD Is yet One
broader & better than

All.

Then there lies a flower
as in s/he who flows where science and society, if not The Holy Spirit, now say go
more freely
however just as bound to down moments
on what’s considered the weaker side

A lily of sorts, in a valley for sure
aching for acceptance and admiration
identifying with
whatever…

S/he walk and talk pretty
basking at a sliver of the glory
that Is taller than me
budding out of hiding from an expensive chest
unconcerned with birth of new, sacred things
the responsibilities non-Easter eggs bring
empowered by voluntary bleeding, ungrateful for involuntary breath

A self-professed fad
one-on-one must ensure doesn’t fade
whether or not s/he refuses the light of day
nutrients
growth among others
even the offer of sufficient water simply comfortable with sleep and dirt

under the nails
Accurate inventory, scraping showed
all our sins were thereby pinned down
even before Commission
Hu/man, listen…

Like full-fledged butterflies
positioned for reflection and study
better understanding development
may we one day move only in
the beauty our Creator Intended
Burdens, Light as The Heir

The elements of soul’s sounds filled the hall
“Share the spice of Life!”, they sang
Per Most High Will, yes, I have
prepared for the burial my best Friend Expected
Hallelujah
He’s Resurrected

in my once-stoned heart
I trust
so Shall He Rise & Flourish in a variety of others.

Amen

In Lieu… (for C.S.)

Then…

My Father Called me

It’s been an Eternity since seeing His Face and i long to see it again

Still
His Voice Is undeniable
“i do”: answer,
past any unknowing
past my fear
past my past

“Abba, i love You and am on The Way!”
See…
As a child, He Taught me both His Ministry (Mercy) and His Judgment

Start at home
So[w] by faith
Forsake no member of my family or part of His Body
unless their disobedience needs to be cast
Splitting only benefits His Image
in the sense that male & female He Made us
A divided house is doomed, however

Scholars say, broken windows…sin…records, droning against the Fullness of His Will also devalue the neighbor-hood
My Brother Taught me to Love mine, from within

Contrary to some belief, He is not an outcast but Casts out fear
that sheep
woollen
burnished
once scattered
lost and undermined in hopes of white/washing them from history (as if!)
yet bear the blessing of The Father
to be Upheld by and seated at His Right Hand
in pace

Now…

I rest in Him where I once would’ve jumped at the chance
to try “it” or prove why I cho(o)se otherwise
In lieu of curiosities, out-of-order boldness, many other sins and their deserved wages

God Gave His Son to Light every path of my world and Pay its bill
He Has NEVER lied but Lay His Life
in turn
Giving His Holy Spirit
of discernment, patience & much more
To this day, the healthy heart conducts its electric impulses accordingly

My siblings across the globe and I
gather in a Kumbayah of sorts
“Please come by here
Stay
High Priest of my Life, dwelling
Strength and Redeemer

Seal us unto you in Love
then Be an Eternal Seal of our message
to any distracting harbinger of deadly power and control
‘Don’t come around here…'”

In each of our temples, the time is always NOW for Godly covenant.

It Is Written.
It Is Finished.
It Has Begun anew and better in Him.

How He Move

1cee1943f2aead0d1a23b8103b4fe4ae--spiritual-gifts-spiritual-thoughts

I love The Way
Man’s fear is not the admission
price for Salvation
but Jesus’ Blood Is

Pure despite ingrafting
More indelible than the deepest stain
Iron-rich in Compassion for the poor
yet free every go-round

The Son Has It
so a new thing Shall all-ways Spring
We learn and teach patience in the process
of growing up
and/or
deeper, hopefully, in Him
After all
even Earth’s burial grounds are The LORD’s
The fullness thereof, Given

One weak…
I saw two surrender to longsuffering
while countless others cried and cursed
in and out of character
for more expensive, less effective medicine

It can’t be easy
to battle addiction, demons
yet embrace The Most High
with equal and opposite fervor to an enemy who somehow enters quiet, secure rooms
daily swept clean
Cameras can’t detect them
They never sign in

Invisible to the worldly eye
fallen angels strive to keep the vulnerable
company provoking them to misery
through escalated depths
of visual, auditory noise
desperate to confuse
those who would hear The Master’s Voice

If the comfortable Christian would also count those persecutions they know nothing of as reason to praise God
the joy might feed reverence that feeds humility that feeds masses to move mountains by faith alone
No pyramid schemes, but a Great GOD thing

Some must first plead guilty for an impromptu visit with the team
We watch torment travel throughout the unit
finding it difficult to stay
Though He Shows up differently
for you and me
Jesus’ Sovereignty, then, Is identical now and all-ways
I have no doubt
some of us plead
paperless Coverage of that same Blood
to start the day…

Night…

Shift, whatever it is.

Pass over
the murderer
the sex offender
the cutter•spitter•fighter…
and go your own way, Sheol
This circle is no incubator for the father (or offspring) of lies
Even the eldest’s wrinkles are now boundary lines in Christ
reading “DO NOT. CROSS!”

The peripheral eye witnesses
those alive in peace
prepared to protect me
I’m not designed to blush, but smile readily
inside
A quick salute is seen once
I return to duty

Figure eight-wise, figuratively foreign wives have taken eyes captive relative to The Bride of Christ for a long time.
Even the fairest and wisest of men once exchanged Truth for a talisman.
How the trappings of modern Life and privilege pave ways to sin!
With God’s Time and Purpose, a sound mind may return after genuine repentance from lessons learned.

As much as I have failed self & others in varied areas
The Holy Spirit Cannot
so I’m happy to follow His Lead
no longer rushing ahead without Him

Silent groans aside
I must say that I’m amazed
how He Moves right
into every place we didn’t
even know we need(ed)

A Cleansing
Breath of fresh air
or Anointing
with refining Fire
where wrong tried its best to have the last word

It’s ok…and an honor to finally trust
The Advocate > accuser
Comforter > competitor
Teacher > traitor
Friendship > folly or having to force another into faith

My Companion…

Say It with Your Chest

There is always
at least’ one
privy to great power
yet not privileged
to wield it
in the present

Tense

Be mindful of minimizing
rightful anger’s potential
grandeur available to any
in the human experience
who would rather go overboard
inward
child and all
than submit to pseudogods
who call captivity friend-ship

He Who Commands ALL storms Captains this
Another captioned his

Culture All

Crude versions of the title’s gist have survived millennia as excuses for rejecting The Holy Word and Way of GOD in Christ.

 

Some variation of:

‘The white man created and used Christianity to control people of color.’

‘The Holy Trinity is just a knock-off of Far Eastern beliefs that pre-date Jesus.’

”They’ think we’re savages and want to replace the greatness of our culture with some blond-haired, blue-eyed doctrine.’

‘I’m smart. I work hard…and I deserve my heaven now; enough cheek turning!’

often finds its way into believer-nonbeliever discourse, leaving the parties full of self or emptied of energy from debating over a God (and pandemic, human sin condition) larger than anyone.

 

The spirit of rebellion that first reared its head in The Garden continues to strike down our good sense, contentment with God’s Natural order and daily Invitations to cultivate His Character within us so our souls can flourish.

With no foresight or foretaste of The LORD’s Goodness [Psalm 34:8 KJV], the couple instead chose the notion of great gain opposite His Will and the second-guessing in their guts; confirming knowledge of a Strict Instruction in Genesis 3:2-3 right before disobeying it then hiding from God’s Address altogether in verses 8-10.

To date, humanity still fawns over many distractions and dead letter worship [of 2 Corinthians 3:5-7] alone that we cover for in the name of devotion; stagnant existence, no Inspired Guidance through Life in The Holy Spirit.

Our relationship with flora (taking time to appreciate and maybe plant them or maintaining a healthy internal environment to best digest His Full Truth) also suffers.

Stubbornly concealing a constipated nature that refuses to let go of fast-acting yet long-lasting toxins like pride, bitterness or jealousy eats away at one’s own functioning and integrity [Job 5:2, Proverbs 14:30, 27:4; Galatians 5:19-21, James 3:14-16, 4:2-3], ‘rotting the bones’ aka the natural framework that’s supposed to hold us together and help us live/move/be upright in Acts 17:28‘s truth according to Biblical thought.

On the other hand, incontinence’s volatile manner though lacking self-control [Matthew 23:25, 1 Corinthians 3:5 YLT] doesn’t discriminate as its stain spreads beyond the sick party, broadly contaminating whatever it touches even in tiny, unseen ways that can still spread dis-ease long after the initial contact.

As is true of our mundane work, heady pursuits [Ecclesiastes 2:15-24] and spiritual lives [Ecclesiastes 7:16-18], balance is much more vital and civil(ized).


kvqtoxVnKVol7m0rov5hug_r

(I might’ve had a bit too much fun with some 80s meme generators this week, but I’m just grateful for Joy in The LORD! Ok, back to my post…)

So, how is balance achieved? Is it, like genuine faith in GOD, just another term many swish around their mouths in good social taste with so few actually putting their hand to or heart and foot in it?

Again, in addition to robust prayer lives, Biblical nourishment and a social circle of shared hunger for the righteousness of God, what practical assists are Christians afforded when seeking a healthy work-life balance in “wisdom…knowledge and…equity” [Ecc. 2:21 KJV]?

Are we suited for any of the mindfulness and other holistic wellness practices currently experiencing a renaissance, e.g. clean eating, yoga, meditation, massage therapy and more?

These were some of the questions I asked of The LORD when I started to exclusively see and receive His Way as The Truth for my life.

It probably goes without saying that a nutritional approach to balance—a moderate, ‘eat to live’ mindset—does well to honor The Most High’s Instructions to avoid gluttonous excess [Psalm 78:29, Proverbs 23:20-21, 2 Timothy 3:1, 3] while giving the organs and systems of our temples, as best able, only content and portions that fuel it for rightful service instead of wearing it down; inviting sloth [Proverbs 12:24, 24:29-31; Ecclesiastes 10:14].

One sin too easily leads to another. A proverbial bad apple sends microbial messages to the bunch so the misery of its rot spreads to its company. I won’t say the few gnats and fruit flies that show up constitute pestilence of Biblical proportions, but the chain of events is the same. Disobedience (including buying beyond need or means via the lust of the eyes) begets decay.


 

Be encouraged to abide in Christ with me and please don’t be dismayed. Remember the trespass yields to The Gift God Gave us, even today in this present moment [Romans 5:15]! Yes, we must always guard our hearts and whole selves from the world’s evil [Galatians 6:10-18], avoiding bad company to avoid corruption of good character [1 Corinthians 15:33].

Indeed, it was written that “a little leaven” (or bacteria, fungus, viral agent, even the cold untruth of Pharisee-like doctrine we’ve all promoted or have otherwise been privy to at some point, etc.) affects “the whole lump” when what matters most is really “faith which worketh by love” [Galatians 5:6-9]. More importantly, each Fruit of The Spirit Developed in us also helps seed another!

The religiosity of whomever decides they want beef or not, etc. has no literal or figurative place in true worship of The Sovereign King, Bearer and Mediator of The New Covenant, JESUS [Luke 22:20, Romans 14:13-17, Hebrews 8:6-13].

In Him, we can say (better yet, shout) Grace about every food, drink and behavior known to man except unquestionable and impermissible blasphemy against His Holy Spirit [1 Corinthians 6:12, 10:23; Matthew 12:32, Mark 3:29, Luke 12:10].

That doesn’t mean we who also love Him and decide upon those foods, drinks, behaviors, thoughts and connections that help limit parasites, excess weight or other imbalances are wrong or ‘bougie’ (?!).

It is pleasing to human visitors when we sweep our homes, temples; offer beverages from thoroughly clean cups without old food, lipstick stains and such, provide savory fare and are less likely to embody the hormonally-injected spirits of stubbornness or artificial sweetness to name a couple.

Why wouldn’t the spiritual equivalent invite and please GOD’s Presence? His Word Teaches that we are (to be) “unto [Him] a sweet savour of Christ” [2 Corinthians 2:15]. Beyond those who are saved or perishing, He Is Most Worthy of our best.


20180117_043747

To that end and new beginning, meet my recent ‘soda’ replacement! I won’t peddle late-night infomercial lies about great flavor…but it tasted decent while supplying the larger benefit of boosting energy [experienced] and good bacteria [expected, reported] after that flu fooli’ness. This is no endorsement; just part of an extended metaphor. Especially for those who avoid dairy and related yogurts in or outside of this mucus-heavy time of year, any kombucha, like many fermented foods, can be helpful in improving gut & immune health. If need be, I may try another kind, make my own or stay flush with fresh lime and ginger in ample water. No worries!

I believe I’m growing in the understanding that when probiotic doses are discussed, perspective comes along the line of “parts per billion”. It’s a matter of concentration; that is, how all our unique, active ‘stuff’ resists quickening where there’s gravity or situations that bring us down to Earth (mass) relative to how a billion ‘everybody elses’ throw their weight around this planet.

Don’t seek an opportunity to be unduly oppositional along 1 Timothy 6:20 lines, because The Most High Is yet a Job 9:8-10, 38:4-7, 33, 36 and Daniel 1:4-5 GOD! One pill to swallow is that according to the world’s human population—approximately 7.6B—each of us does our daily part to operate either as an agent of ill or wellness, moreso to The relatively smaller Body of Christ.

I am receiving greater appreciation for the Truth of my Great Physician. Per Deuteronomy 28:7, the ratio of His Healing Power Is intact. The enemy can keep its fever! It Is also well with The Master’s (exponential) Formula in Matthew 18:21-22 and Proverbs 24:16 for forgiveness and recovering from minor falls after that big one. I, too, am one of His children who shall give the enemy no environment to thrive.


 

This brings me back briefly to some other wellness and relaxation methods. As clinical models and centers of healthcare became more integrated over the years, some natural, complementary & alternative medical [CAM] practices that are particularly active in spiritual undercurrents the unassuming (Christian) person might not consider are frequently on the menu.

Herbal medicine—from the aloe plant’s innards that surfers and other sun lovers wisely place on their skins for burn relief to our ancestors’ sips of maté, mint or sassafras to the local gentrifying shop’s chamomile or ‘new’ overpriced and exoticized teas then on to the very foundations of virtually every drug your pharmacist carries—has long been demonized as a tool of witchcraft.

At one point, moldy bread wasn’t even fit for peasants and slippery attempts to sell it must’ve been grounds for a few brawls. With right perspective and in the right hands, however, its relative, penicillin, has helped many recover from various biological battles.

Being innocent regarding evil but wise in good things as Romans 16:19 Teaches us, of course there are many who may be unaware of or don’t share my belief in Revelation 22:2‘s (figurative?) Vision.

It is understood that some people do employ plants, bodily fluids, friend/family trust, even Scripture or a smile and anything they can get their hands on to manifest the evil within them. They see the world from that place because their father, the devil, taught them effectively [John 8:44]. They will have their reward. One Way or another, we all will.

The trend didn’t begin with, but was certainly popularized by, executives whose strategies would benefit from pillaging whole territories and cultures.

We still see the culture of synthesized and regulated raw bounty otherwise used well by its kindred that suddenly gets slapped with trademarks and/or high price tags with ‘Beware! Don’t Feed the Natives’ signs for extra effect against anyone who survived. [Hint: the real 🐇 (hip hop…)]

That, too, is a form of mistaking good and evil [Isaiah 5:20, Jeremiah 22:13, Matthew 23:23]. Those so inclined should stop while they can. My Heavenly Father Is a Forgiving, even Adoptive One when approached with reverence and genuine repentance.


 

During a chat with a friend about my holistic health interests before I became saved, the Christian gentleman met my expressed thoughts from a position of understanding the sustainable, natural fitness goal but gently introduced the question of why I specifically hoped to move ‘chi’.

Why were trendy, ‘mystical’ ways necessary to achieve improved coordination, strength, tone and well-being?

Essentially…

 

Without using any of the following words, The Spirit of God in him admonished me that my good intention and acceptable appropriation of a thing contended with a road already paved for millennia with the distinctly different spiritual practices of billions.

Christian as we want to be, we can’t recite foreign chants (likely to foreign gods if you understood the language) and form certain ‘mudras’ with the hands (many of which, including the “ok” sign and some hand gestures associated with our cities and gangs where unfortunately applicable, quietly made their ways to mainstream culture) without somehow appealing to the “mother of harlots”.

I thank GOD that my testimony among those of so many brothers and sisters in Christ across the globe, Empowered by The Blood of The Lamb, is part of Babylon’s death sentence [Revelation 12:10-11, 16:5-7, 17:1-6]. We just have to keep seeing our common enemy for who it is, our common goal in Christ for What It Is and fight to keep the lines clear and uncrossed.

My rational mind searched for rebuttal from the memory of positive harm reduction outcomes I’d contributed to and witnessed in recovering heroin addicts at one drop-in public health center where the acupuncture a partner and I offered was among vital services for detox.

The next immediate memory was of the treatment protocol’s focal point, the Shen Men or “spirit gate”, at which time I had to just shut up, listen closer and step away from that chamber with my righteous mind. I mean, he didn’t have to yell…at all. Faith cometh by hearing The Word of GOD [Romans 10:17], which isn’t guaranteed or referenced through that ear location.


The concept of cultural oversight in that regard also brought to mind a fellow creative lady from my adolescence whom my then-boyfriend loved, arguably too much.

We went to her shows. He spoke of her by codename among his circle when we chilled together. Y’all, Sir Honesty volunteered that they read the “Kama Sutra” together in her dorm room on a nearby campus when I had yet to return to mine from late classes. Via countless stories, he hated her boyfriend who was apparently anything but generous towards her. And so on.

I’m neither designed to be jealous nor a jail warden, preferring natural respect and selection over force or so-called feminine wiles, so victimhood by cheater/liar wasn’t my lot. If anything, my ‘I will address you with my findings once then play and beat you at your own game until I’m bored’ younger self was her own victim.

I hurt him badly too, so wasted time and consequential pain made its way back around to refine how I treat people. The affliction was good [Psalm 119:71, Matthew 7:12, Romans 8:28].


 

Feeding into what didn’t value either young woman instead of subtracting myself from the confusion, staying gone then yielding to God for cleansing°healing°redirection°rightful union otherwise was my fault.

Eventually, the restless spirits involved did what they all do when they go without accurate identification, protection and rebuke in Christ Jesus. Hindu, Chinese, Japanese, Ghanaian, Dominican, Haitian, Trini, Jamaican, Nigerian, French, Panamanian, Canadian, Native American, Southern, Northern, East Coast, West Coast, Scottish, Latin American, Irish, Syrian, German, city, country, jovial, depressed, bottled, rolled, broken, whole…spirits attempt transfer and she literally became the woman of my dreams, too; crying in sorrow each time.

Whenever God Laid her on my heart amongst everything else He Would Share in those night visions, I genuinely asked the young man about his friend. One time, he broke down and shared that she’d just had a daughter. We were all 22-24 by then; had gone from baggy to painted-on jeans and both (allegedly) moved in and out of his life.

I felt the child was his but never verbalized my questioning as our part-time, six-year love was apparently sealed shut. Truth is, he wouldn’t tell me the truth, she wouldn’t talk at all and the innocent never asked to be present for any of it, so what’s done was–and is–done. With the exception of a criminal act, pregnancy says two things: all claims of ‘there’s nothing between us/we were never intimate’ are nullified and physical protection was either faulty or never on.

A few, new girlfriends also entered the stage then—and, yes, my dreams; one even by name before we’d met. I did too much trying to prove the lack of hard feelings I’d moved on with, accepting invites to talk from one and supporting another’s business by getting a tattoo [Leviticus 19:28].

Even his mother, then a beloved friend and mentor to me since our teen years, never exploited her son’s business or played favorites but expressed a serious, simple “you really shouldn’t have done that” disapproval for my giving her access to my blood and life [Leviticus 17:11-14].

Clearly, I was too close to him and not close enough to Christ at the time. That tie was way too strong outside of The LORD to be a blessing yet there was no use wasting more time in blame about what was already done.

I respected life, reached out to the new mom for the second (unanswered) time since day one and wished her blessings with what I believed to be the purity that white roses represented.

Silly of my way back, Asiatic Black ideology at the time not to consider that some of the same Far Eastern cultures of our common interest regarded white (roses) as funerary.

I feared this was the unintended making of a vendetta and, for a split second, almost agreed with the old wives’ tales of our respective cultural roots that her anger was later the reason for the loss of my children.

Noticing a host of social media stalking for a few years after I’d not only moved on from him in relationship but to another physical state? Yeah, that was real–annoying, unnecessary and unfair. But to blame anyone for fetal demise? I choose to believe that’s a lie. Only my God Decides.

With developing knowledge of, obedience to and strength in Christ over time, none of those prospects and their attempts at tapping into the occult practices of our ancestral homes for harm mattered to me.

Actually, how dare I assign overall life & death power to any but The Most High GOD-in-Christ?! [Isaiah 25:8, Hebrews 2:14, Revelation 21:4] Didn’t I know and understand that regardless of where any of us could boast being born, I was Reborn in The Messiah; my blood Transfused with His Precious Sovereign Flow? [Acts 20:28, Romans 5:9, Ephesians 1:7, 2:13; 2 Corinthians 5:17, Colossians 1:19-22; Hebrews 9:11-14, 12:23-25, 23:11-13]

I was no prophet [Amos 7:14] and neither were some of my community’s superstitious elders who lived in church but made cultural practice of keeping tape measures or yard sticks and a bell of sorts by their bedroom doors for fear of the dead forgetting or remembering and visiting their place [Job 14:12, Psalm 146:4, Ecclesiastes 9:5-6, Isaiah 38:18-19, 1 Timothy 4:1-2].

The Middle Passage daughter that I am deeply understands the rage of a people stolen, enslaved, brutally made to change and give up the abundant land, influence, respect and love we knew since antiquity.

Well before North American colonies then states were established, we ran with the Teachings of Christ that many like Cyril (*) brought to The Continent. It received the ‘you can’t quite sit with us’ Coptic sub-genre treatment. We studied the Torah as Did The Messiah and those deemed oppressed further oppressed His people as falasha outcasts. I get it.

Denying Christ as our Savior or otherwise adopting the nature of evil for undue gain and harm, however, is far inferior to reclaiming our place among The Most High GOD-in-Christ’s Family. It’s time!

It’s time we let go of wrong allegiances among the world system. I’m referring to our people’s long-time love affairs with freemasonry, eastern starriness, frats and soros, too. Our GOD’s Name Is Jealous [Exodus 34:14].

Unity, community service, great networking and polished appearance are possible without allegiance beyond God and family. With the exception of The Most High Himself, a select Biblical few humans and the Covenant of marriage we still maintain, oaths and even false vows haven’t gotten a pardon [Matthew 5:33-37, James 5:12].

The LORD Rebuke every branch, chain and root of voodoo, astrology/numerology/tarot hoodoo, santería, candomblé, spiritual baptist, orisha and seductive self worship blended among His Body!

We must stop the bitterness and blame! Stop lying and spreading foul spirits to new generations! Stop lying to ourselves! The Holy Spirit Will Hear and Share in every earnest groan of despair, Just as He Did mine [Romans 8:26-27].

7820781070_2dd1a6059a

If you believe I am the worst and at fault for everything in my own and other far-removed lives, then you can trust there Is room in The Most High’s Love for YOU who are already better. No excuses then! Join me in surrender to Him.

No demon of hell [Romans 8:38-39] and no human I don’t awaken to in our true marriage bed, after having been ordained as one flesh [Genesis 2:23-24, Mark 10:7-8], could affect that.

Others’ unholy unions and, even creative, James 1:15 offspring would have to be a subject of fervent, deliverance prayer. As for me, however, when God Says so, I will only marry once, in and through Jesus Christ The Son of GOD. His Blood Fills our bodies, Covers our home and every member in advance and we shall serve Him only [Joshua 24:15]. That. Is. It.

These are touchy subjects for the church, I know, but the devil isn’t ashamed of secrets and lies so…touché! Truth must be told in Love.

That said, massage is often affiliated with but bears no distinct spiritual culture as an clinically sound, therapeutic modality. Even it should be approached with the caution of 1 Timothy 5:22.

Due Season

In days gone by

we have seen

 

some tides turn to defy bottles and good s/cents

arriving at times unexpected and with messages undesired

 

 

Yet The Most High, Creator of every today

He Who Gives and Quickens The Spirit

to Live, Move and Be as He Wills

Knew

as all-ways

 
Also be reminded, then

that there might never be enough honey to sweeten some apples

so appreciate the Life gift

regardless of the city (once) housing you

 

 

Mature in Christ

as all fruit, from every family tree, will be harvested by His Loving Hand or a fall

 

 

Everyone

leaves

gets bare

is planted

blooms

in due season.

 

Honor The King’s Leading.
