Perfected in Love...See                                                                      By Candace Huffmaster
 在爱中得完美…看见                                                                             贺肯德著

Before we enter the verses on Us being created I want us to take pause and truly understand so that we might SEE:

God is a God of perfect love, order, provision and cause which leads to the appropriate effect. He set up all things with the knowledge, understanding and excellence to ensure that all the details of our lives and what we need were already set in place. He created the atmosphere in which all things we would need were sustained. He created the life giving forces to uphold us physically in all way. He secured the sustenance to multiply so that we might be well and recreate in His image.

He created Man to truly love, keep Godly order care for and provide with Godly knowledge, understanding and excellence to ensure that the atmosphere would be sustained for the multiplicity of Godly leaders. He created us to be the life giving forces to uphold things physically in all ways. His forethought has secured all sustenance and power for what He imagined to BE.


Think on these thought from one of my earlier conversations with Him. He was trying to explain some things to me so that I would see Love clearly. I titled it “See”.

I pray that today you too See what I saw and said “Man this is Good” “Thank You Dad..help me understand MORE.”

With True Love, in Christ our Savior,


A special thanks and much gratitude to Tom Tso for gift of editing and translating this work.

This is a Romans 8 Kind of Week ..and it isn't only Wednesday!

It is weeks like this when I see God's sense of humor and hear him encouraging me to take a deep breath, and remember...He knows what is going on in / around us.

So at this moment when my computer "seems" to be crashing, relationships "appear" to be disconnected, and my flesh "feels" like it is flailing - I pull close to God and curl up with Romans 8 and take a REALLY deep breath.  I will not grab the carrots that my mind is enticing me with.  I will believe God and persevere.

In line with what God has told us in the beginning of His Story to us, I ask you to meditate on the scriptures below today.   I thank God that all is well.  I thank him with a humble heart for the mercy and grace to get to the other side of Today with wholeness, peace ...and yes, even joy!

My prayers are with you all,
In love,

Romans 8:20- (NAS)
For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now. And not only this, but also we ourselves, having the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our body. For in hope we have been saved, but hope that is seen is not hope; for who hopes for what he already sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance we wait eagerly for it.

What Do You See?

God did everything in order…..for us to SEE Genesis 1:1 from the Message translation states it like this:

1First this: God created the Heavens and Earth--all you see, all you don't see. 2Earth was a soup of nothingness, a bottomless emptiness, an inky blackness. God's Spirit brooded like a bird above the watery abyss.

As I was reading our verses from Matthew and Genesis yesterday, these words jumped out at me and they will see.

When do you think God wants us to see? Do you think He wants it to be “after” we go through a life of tribulation? Do you think He would have started His story out telling us how He defined everything in such an orderly fashion and gave us the ability to see it all from the beginning of creation if He wanted us to NOT see till it was too late?

His story is a Love Story. It is all of His wisdom, warnings and woes to blind, rebellious people. However, He seasoned it with those of us that have persevered through seeing His reality instead of the distortion of darkness around us. In 2 Corinthians 5 God tells us:

For we know that if the earthly tent which is our house is torn down, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For indeed in this house we groan, longing to be clothed with our dwelling from heaven, inasmuch as we, having put it on, will not be found naked. For indeed while we are in this tent, we groan, being burdened, because we do not want to be unclothed but to be clothed, so that what is mortal will be swallowed up by life. Now He who prepared us for this very purpose is God, who gave to us the Spirit as a pledge. Therefore, being always of good courage, and knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord--

for we walk by faith, not by sight--

we are of good courage, I say, and prefer rather to be absent from the body and to be at home with the Lord. Therefore we also have as our ambition, whether at home or absent, to be pleasing to Him. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.

So I ask you today, “Knowing all these words of God, do you believe them”? “If you believe them, do you trust them to be true?” “If you trust them to be true are you waiting for what God is leading you toward…showing you?” He promised that if we seek Him with all our heart, mind and soul. We will find Him. In Habakkuk 2:4 He states:

"Behold, as for the proud one, His soul is not right within him; but the righteous will live by his faith.

In Hebrews 10: 37-38 God states:


For His Glory and Name Sake in Christ,


Today, I pray verse 39 of Hebrews over us to cover us and encourage us.”But we are not of those who shrink back to destruction, but of those who have faith to the preserving of the soul.” I ask you to believe what we are studying, to have faith in our Holy God, and to seek His way out of whatever tribulation is battling within your lives.

The Epic of I AM

Genesis 1:13-16 (NAS) Then God said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth"; and it was so. God made the two great lights, the greater light to govern the day, and the lesser light to govern the night; He made the stars also.

Matthew 24:29-30(NAS)"But immediately after the tribulation of those days THE SUN WILL BE DARKENED, AND THE MOON WILL NOT GIVE ITS LIGHT, AND THE STARS WILL FALL from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. "And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the SON OF MAN COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF THE SKY with power and great glory.

God is so very good and loving. He has such skill in telling His story. I pray that you reflect on your character within His epic and review some of our study of Genesis today.

With the Love of Christ,

Listen ...

Today, the winds of change are blowing.  Today, listen to all the watchmen and what they say.  Know that the Lord is Almighty.  Trust in the divinity of His hand. The destruction is counted and measure, the debris will be swept from your path.  Do not look around you at the devestation, keep your eyes set on the horizon of your path.  Today know that He loves you and His tears rain down as a summer shower.  He is your deliverance and power to make it.  He is prompt and fulfilling for your good.  Trust Him, be watchful and waiting at times you will not want to speak.  You will know from his prompting...the one in your midst for your needs.

I love you all....all is well.  Say that and believe.
With a Holy Kiss and the Heart of Christ,

Proper Prospective by the Water’s Edge
– Reflections of a still heart

Be still my child; know that I am God
Stretch out your arm and reach for my hand
I have been calling you through all time; whispering gently “your name”
Sitting beside the still waters; which calmly run through your path
Here all tension is drifting, as you grasp to hold firm my hand

Rest as deep as the waters; which have no beginning nor will they end
Twisting, turning rolling inward then flowing over and out
All time is a continuum in motion; plunging deep while running at my speed
Years folding into seconds, the sorrowful desire to turn back the hand of time
I desire to wash away their broken memories; there is a lesson to for all to learn.

To return a wave, requires an earth movement; for man this is impossible to achieve
My hand, however, has strength and power; things your mind cannot comprehend
To stop the world from turning, you must watch closely to understand.

As I think, it surely happens, because my love knows no bounds
When flowing as life giving water it quenches the driest of sand
My time is the distant shoreline; the boundary for us all
Its water the lifeless’ lifeblood; running throughout each soul
My knowledge is everlasting power, the heartbeat understands
My energy is pure motion, pumping my lives over and beyond
My spirit propels each vision, empowering good and halting bad.

Sit by my still waters; come near to contemplate life
Listen to the distant babbling, of all the years we’ve passed by
Listen to only their laughter, forget all of their pain
My joy is through the Holy Spirit and peace is in my right hand

Lengthen your own shoreline, take the pure water in
Deepen your own tide pool, this way you will understand
Dive in with a deep breath, then kick hard to reach the top
Breath in all that freshness, allow your face to burst through the wet
Emerge in me a new life form, truly cleansed now from your past,
In beauty to walk as the righteous, upright and straight ahead

Now you can see forward, when looking as you wave goodbye
So wait for proper prospective, before standing to leave them behind
Always focus your pathway, designed from my trusted lead
Follow the heavenly highway, perfectly designed to carry you home
Together we will share this journey, it’s a walk to remember and enjoy.

God's Arm is Strong and His Hand is Skillfull...We Must Believe.

Deuteronomy 1:29-32

"Then I said to you, `Do not be shocked, nor fear them. `The LORD your God who goes before you will Himself fight on your behalf, just as He did for you in Egypt before your eyes, and in the wilderness where you saw how the LORD your God carried you, just as a man carries his son, in all the way which you have walked until you came to this place.' "But for all this, you did not trust the LORD your God, who goes before you on your way, to seek out a place for you to encamp, in fire by night and cloud by day, to show you the way in which you should go.

Referencing Genesis 1:14, 15 God said "let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons…

Referencing Matthew 10: 26-27"Therefore do not fear them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known.

27"What I tell you in the darkness, speak in the light; and what you hear whispered in your ear, proclaim upon the housetops.

Referencing 1Samuel 2:10"Those who oppose the LORD are broken into pieces. He thunders at them from the heavens. The LORD judges the ends of the earth. He gives strength to his King and lifts the head of his Messiah."

Psalms 135:7 He is the one who makes the clouds rise from the ends of the earth, who makes lightning for the thunderstorms, and who brings wind out of his storerooms.

Proverbs 11:23 The desire of righteous people ends only in good, but the hope of wicked people ends only in fury.

I praise God that He has instructed us to not worry about tomorrow but to live THIS day within the mercy and grace He provides us. I thank Him that He is faithful to give us the sign and wonder each morning that He is with us in the lights above us as well as within each of His children. I am awe of His faithfulness as each day comes to a close and I have seen His hand at work to provide, protect and increase His goodness where needed.

To Quote Isaiah:

Don't you know? Haven't you heard? The eternal God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, doesn't grow tired or become weary. His understanding is beyond reach.

To Quote Christ:

I've told you this so that my peace will be with you. In the world you'll have trouble. But cheer up! I have overcome the world."

God set all time in place He marked the days and the years. We do not know these times, but He does. So today when you are afraid do not loose heart..”cheer up, your deliverance has already taken place.” Be as Habakkuk stretch your neck out and wait eagerly for Him to show up and show out for you.  Just look at His track record of doing this.  His arm has NEVER been too short!

I pray that as you read this all your troubles are as water gone by. I pray that you will “Let what God said Be.” It is waiting for you.

With the Love of Christ,

If Life Is a Dance.....

My Computer has woken up in a really bad mood today =D.  So I am not able to get to my reseach for this mornig devotion.  However, "have no fear - Poetry is Here".  After reading Tom and Tehwans devotion the day before yesterday, I was reminded of this poem.  When I was posting the poem this morning I remembered a lovely little diddy by John Michael Montgomery some years ago.  I went back to find the Lyrics to it:

Life's a dance you learn as you go
Sometimes you lead, sometimes you follow
Don't worry about what you don't know
Life's a dance you learn as you go
Life's a dance you learn as you go
Sometimes you lead, sometimes you follow
Don't worry about what you don't know
Life's a dance you learn as you go.

At the time in my life when this was popular, I remember thinking how sweetly encouraging it was.  However, today...many years later, I understand more which is why I love the minuet of God heart and invitation to us all.  I pray you choose to Dance....and that you Dance with God.

Don’t Dance With  Demons

I love you so deeply…..
Speak to my heart…..
Be food for my soul….
Your gentle voice encourages me, washes this world away:
Lifting the weight of debris; softening the earth of my soul.
Now use your hands to mold me; form me into your perfect fit.

Don’t tremble in my presence; my hand is that of love
The pressure is not to break you,
You asked for my will to be done.
Don’t choose to dance with the demons,
Choose to reach out and take hold of my hand
We’ll circle to the music….. your body engulfed by my lead
Your eyes will lock on my presence; now you’ll see only my face
As the music infuses the present, the rhythm will start to soothe
Together we will glide across the dance floor: in harmony, perfectly timed.
Inspiring all on-lookers; silently captivated by our bond.

When learning movements are awkward;
Challenging and difficult to move smooth
Muscles not bending or flexing,
In time, with patience skill will build
Suddenly they all will see her;
The beautiful dancer will be unveiled.
My voice is the sounds which moves her,
My tune as melodious as a bird.

We are the instruments of harmony
And the woodwinds are my words
My hand is the acclaimed conductor;
My children are the notes I direct.
Our audience is now before us,
Prepared and waiting with baited breath
The curtain is split and lifting
Rolling back in the tide of my time
So let us work within this moment,
While they are ready for their ride.

Remember my trusted instruction;
Wait patiently for my prompt
Then all things will come together;
No note will sound off or flat
Each note is a precious drop of water,
Which fills to comprise the sea.
Together they merge to form movement,
A compulsion, a bursting forth as the rise of each wave.
The cause and effect are prompted by my hand.
My skill will arouse emotion touching the anticipant crowd .
We know they have come for a reason, I intend to not let them down.
Incoming waves will stir their passion propelling their hearts to move.
Their souls will then be softened, allowing the influx of my blood to enter and flow;
Carrying the current of our life line, which returns our family held tightly within my hand.

Think of me as a farmer, one seed selected held perfectly in my palm;
My eyes seek the environment suited: perfect soil, sun with all nourishment it needs
I AM always watching to subdue, oversee and protect
I respect the fragile condition; I understand its delicate frame,
I support when gravity could break it, until there is strength to handle its new form.
My hand is more than sufficient, with patience I watches as it grows.
The plant has no need or worry; it rests in the care it receives.
Predestined for life in all ways, for I know just what it will become.
A rose will not ever grow coconuts and grass cannot become a tree.
To me, each is splendid perfection, perfect for the purpose I foresaw.
In Time it too will delight from the pleasure and know of what I now see.
Till then it sways in my majesty, so at peace to simply BE.

Where There Is Christ There Is A Sign For Their Season

Today, there is way too much to break down.  So we are just going to have the verses to meditate on till tomorrow.  It is going to take us a couple of days to get through these.  From the beginning God has been working on something and He is working on completing it even as we live and breath today.  Where are you....what have you done?
I thank God for His Mercy and Grace..I pray you See, Turn from your ways and be saved.  If you have already done this, I pray you help me cover those with Christ who prayed "Father forgive them for they know not what they do!"

Genesis 1:14, 15 (NAS)
Then God said," "let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth and it was so.

Matthew Chapter 10 (select verses from NAS)

16"Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; so be shrewd as serpents and innocent as doves.

19"But when they hand you over, do not worry about how or what you are to say; for it will be given you in that hour what you are to say.

20"For it is not you who speak, but it is the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you.

21"Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death.

22"You will be hated by all because of My name, but it is the one who has endured to the end who will be saved.

26"Therefore do not fear them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known.

27"What I tell you in the darkness, speak in the light; and what you hear whispered in your ear, proclaim upon the housetops.

28"Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

29"Are not two sparrows sold for a [a]cent? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father.

30"But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

31"So do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows.

32"Therefore everyone who confesses Me before men, I will also confess him before My Father who is in heaven.

33"But whoever denies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father who is in heaven.

34"Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.



37"He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me.

38"And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me.

Deuteronomy Chapter  28

1"(A)Now it shall be, if you diligently obey the LORD your God, being careful to do all His commandments which I command you today, the LORD your God (B)will set you high above all the nations of the earth.

2"All these blessings will come upon you and (C)overtake you if you obey the LORD your God:

3"Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be (D)in the country.

4"Blessed shall be the offspring of your body and the produce of your ground and the offspring of your beasts, the increase of your herd and the young of your flock.

5"Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl.

6"Blessed shall you be (E)when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out.

7"The LORD shall cause your enemies who rise up against you to be defeated before you; they will come out against you one way and will flee before you seven ways.

8"The LORD will command the blessing upon you in your barns and in (F)all that you put your hand to, and He will bless you in the land which the LORD your God gives you.

9"(G)The LORD will establish you as a holy people to Himself, as He swore to you, if you keep the commandments of the LORD your God and walk in His ways.

10"So all the peoples of the earth will see that (H)you are called by the name of the LORD, and they will be afraid of you.

11"(I)The LORD will make you abound in prosperity, in the offspring of your body and in the offspring of your beast and in the produce of your ground, in the land which the LORD swore to your fathers to give you.

12"The LORD will open for you His good storehouse, the heavens, to give rain to your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hand; and (J)you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow.

13"(K)The LORD will make you the head and not the tail, and you only will be above, and you will not be underneath, if you listen to the commandments of the LORD your God, which I charge you today, to observe them carefully,

14and (L)do not turn aside from any of the words which I command you today, to the right or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them.

Consequences of Disobedience

15"(M)But it shall come about, if you do not obey the LORD your God, to observe to do all His commandments and His statutes with which I charge you today, that all these curses will come upon you and overtake you:

16"(N)Cursed shall you be in the city, and cursed shall you be in the country.

17"(O)Cursed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl.

18"(P)Cursed shall be the offspring of your body and the produce of your ground, the increase of your herd and the young of your flock.

19"(Q)Cursed shall you be when you come in, and cursed shall you be when you go out.

20"(R)The LORD will send upon you curses, confusion, and (S)rebuke, in all you undertake to do, until you are destroyed and until (T)you perish quickly, on account of the evil of your deeds, because you have forsaken Me.

21"(U)The LORD will make the pestilence cling to you until He has consumed you from the land where you are entering to possess it.

22"(V)The LORD will smite you with consumption and with fever and with inflammation and with fiery heat and with [a]the sword and (W)with blight and with mildew, and they will pursue you until (X)you perish.

23"The heaven which is over your head shall be bronze, and the earth which is under you, iron.

24"(Y)The LORD will make the rain of your land powder and dust; from heaven it shall come down on you until you are destroyed.

25"(Z)The LORD shall cause you to be defeated before your enemies; you will go out one way against them, but you will flee seven ways before them, and you will (AA)be an example of terror to all the kingdoms of the earth.

26"(AB)Your carcasses will be food to all birds of the sky and to the beasts of the earth, and there will be no one to frighten them away.

27"(AC)The LORD will smite you with the boils of Egypt and with (AD)tumors and with the scab and with the itch, from which you cannot be healed.

28"The LORD will smite you with madness and with blindness and with bewilderment of heart;

29and you will (AE)grope at noon, as the blind man gropes in darkness, and you will not prosper in your ways; but you shall only be oppressed and robbed continually, with none to save you.

30"(AF)You shall betroth a wife, but another man will violate her; (AG)you shall build a house, but you will not live in it; you shall plant a vineyard, but you will not use its fruit.

31"Your ox shall be slaughtered before your eyes, but you will not eat of it; your donkey shall be torn away from you, and will not be restored to you; your sheep shall be given to your enemies, and you will have none to save you.

32"(AH)Your sons and your daughters shall be given to another people, while your eyes look on and yearn for them continually; but there will be nothing you can do.

33"(AI)A people whom you do not know shall eat up the produce of your ground and all your labors, and you will never be anything but oppressed and crushed continually.

34"You shall be driven mad by the sight of what you see.

35"(AJ)The LORD will strike you on the knees and legs with sore boils, from which you cannot be healed, from the sole of your foot to the crown of your head.

36"(AK)The LORD will bring you and your king, whom you set over you, to a nation which neither you nor your fathers have known, and there you shall serve other gods, (AL)wood and stone.

37"(AM)You shall become a horror, a proverb, and a taunt among all the people where the LORD drives you.

38"(AN)You shall bring out much seed to the field but you will gather in little, for (AO)the locust will consume it.

39"(AP)You shall plant and cultivate vineyards, but you will neither drink of the wine nor gather the grapes, for the worm will devour them.

40"(AQ)You shall have olive trees throughout your territory but you will not anoint yourself with the oil, for your olives will drop off.

41"(AR)You shall have sons and daughters but they will not be yours, for they will go into captivity.

42"(AS)The cricket shall possess all your trees and the produce of your ground.

43"(AT)The alien who is among you shall rise above you higher and higher, but you will go down lower and lower.

44"(AU)He shall lend to you, but you will not lend to him; (AV)he shall be the head, and you will be the tail.

45"So all these curses shall come on you and pursue you and overtake you (AW)until you are destroyed, because you would not obey the LORD your God by keeping His commandments and His statutes which He commanded you.

46"They shall become (AX)a sign and a wonder on you and your descendants forever.

47"(AY)Because you did not serve the LORD your God with joy and a glad heart, for the abundance of all things;

48therefore you shall serve your enemies whom the LORD will send against you, (AZ)in hunger, in thirst, in nakedness, and in the lack of all things; and He (BA)will put an iron yoke on your neck until He has destroyed you.

49"(BB)The LORD will bring a nation against you from afar, from the end of the earth, (BC)as the eagle swoops down, a nation whose language you shall not understand,

50a nation of fierce countenance who will (BD)have no respect for the old, nor show favor to the young.

51"Moreover, it shall eat the offspring of your herd and the produce of your ground until you are destroyed, who also leaves you no grain, new wine, or oil, nor the increase of your herd or the young of your flock until they have caused you to perish.

52"(BE)It shall besiege you in all your towns until your high and fortified walls in which you trusted come down throughout your land, and it shall besiege you in all your towns throughout your land which the LORD your God has given you.

53"(BF)Then you shall eat the offspring of your own body, the flesh of your sons and of your daughters whom the LORD your God has given you, during the siege and the distress by which your enemy will oppress you.

54"The man who is refined and very delicate among you shall be hostile toward his brother and toward the wife he cherishes and toward the rest of his children who remain,

55so that he will not give even one of them any of the flesh of his children which he will eat, since he has nothing else left, during the siege and the distress by which your enemy will oppress you in all your towns.

56"(BG)The refined and delicate woman among you, who would not venture to set the sole of her foot on the ground for delicateness and refinement, shall be hostile toward the husband she cherishes and toward her son and daughter,

57and toward her afterbirth which issues from between her legs and toward her children whom she bears; for (BH)she will eat them secretly for lack of anything else, during the siege and the distress by which your enemy will oppress you in your towns.

58"If you are not careful to observe all the words of this law which are written in this book, to (BI)fear this honored and awesome (BJ)name, the LORD your God,

59then the LORD will bring extraordinary plagues on you and your descendants, even severe and lasting plagues, and miserable and chronic sicknesses.

60"(BK)He will bring back on you all the diseases of Egypt of which you were afraid, and they will cling to you.

61"Also every sickness and every plague which, not written in the book of this law, the LORD will bring on you (BL)until you are destroyed.

62"Then you shall be left few in number, (BM)whereas you were as numerous as the stars of heaven, because you did not obey the LORD your God.

63"It shall come about that as the LORD (BN)delighted over you to prosper you, and multiply you, so the LORD will (BO)delight over you to make you perish and destroy you; and you will be (BP)torn from the land where you are entering to possess it.

64"Moreover, the LORD will (BQ)scatter you among all peoples, from one end of the earth to the other end of the earth; and there you shall (BR)serve other gods, wood and stone, which you or your fathers have not known.

65"(BS)Among those nations you shall find no rest, and there will be no resting place for the sole of your foot; but there (BT)the LORD will give you a trembling heart, failing of eyes, and despair of soul.

66"So your life shall hang in doubt before you; and you will be in dread night and day, and shall have no assurance of your life.

67"In the morning you shall say, 'Would that it were evening!' And at evening you shall say, 'Would that it were morning!' because of the dread of your heart which you dread, and for the sight of your eyes which you will see.

68"The LORD will bring you back to Egypt in ships, by the way about which I spoke to you, 'You will never see it again!' And there you will offer yourselves for sale to your enemies as male and female slaves, but there will be no buyer."

Ministry in Word

Divine Petition – Part 5
神的祈求 – 第五篇

(Partially based on Charles Spurgeon’s “Morning and Evening” devotional)

Luke 22:31-32

“Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail.”


Continued from Part 4

Jesus is Proactive

Even before Satan had started to tempt us Jesus hindered him, providing us a way out. Beside his intervention of Satan’s temptation, he also entered a plea in heaven for us,interceding for our sins. His mercy outruns the malice of the evil one.


He did not say, “Satan has sifted you and I will pray.” To have Jesus prayed for us after the fact would have been good. He is the perfectly righteous man and so His prayer is most powerful and effective. But He said, “Satan has asked for you.” That means that Jesus countered Satan’s wicked desires and he cut them off early on. Therefore Apostle James said, “Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” (James 4:7) When we resist Satan he will flee from us because Jesus had nipped in the bud Satan’s evil desires concerning us and his wicked deeds against us.


Jesus did not say, “I have desired to pray for you,” or “I have planned to pray for you,” or “I have intended to pray for you.” It is good for us that Jesus has a strong desire to pray for us, or a good intention to pray for us. But if it is not carried out or if it is carried out late, it is useless. But Jesus did not say so. He said, “I have prayed for you. I have
already done it. I have gone to the heavenly court and entered a counterplea before an accusation is made.” Yes, Jesus has prayed for us. Unlike some of us who sometimes have good intention but little action, Jesus is proactive concerning our situations. He prays for us and intercedes for us all the time at the right time.


Jesus prays for us so that our faith should not fail. He prays so that we will come through Satan’s sifting victoriously, so that we will be able to see the faithfulness of God in sustaining us, and as a result it will strengthen our stand for God.



What a comfort to know that Jesus has pleaded our cause against our unseen enemy the devil, that He has nullified the accusations against us by the accuser, that He has identified his attack and neutralized it. That should give us great joy, gratitude, hope, and confidence in our daily walk with Jesus, our Lord and Savior.

Perfected in Love...See

Before we enter the verses on Us being created I want us to take pause and truly understand so that we might SEE:

God is a God of perfect love, order, provision and cause which leads to the appropriate effect. He set up all things with the knowledge, understanding and excellence to ensure that all the details of our lives and what we need were already set in place. He created the atmosphere in which all things we would need were sustained. He created the life giving forces to uphold us physically in all way. He secured the sustenance to multiply so that we might be well and recreate in His image.

He created Man to truly love, keep Godly order care for and provide with Godly knowledge, understanding and excellence to ensure that the atmosphere would be sustained for the multiplicity of Godly leaders. He created us to be the life giving forces to uphold things physically in all ways. His forethought has secured all sustenance and power for what He imagined to BE.

Think on these thought from one of my earlier conversations with Him. He was trying to explain some things to me so that I would see Love clearly. I titled it “See”.

I pray that today you too See what I saw and said “Man this is Good” “Thank You Dad..help me understand MORE.”

With True Love, in Christ our Savior,



I now understand and see all so clearly, thank you for showing me. Let me record to share because they must know – they have to see beyond the smoke. Their false images in their eyes, let them understand Father, please, they have to See the end of their path. They have to SEE to make the choice of whether to get off and come to you in understanding or to choose death.

Their path will not survive, it is going to crumble and return to the dust, it is as you set it to be if they do not come to Love.

Love is what you are and why you created us. Love needs nothing except for someone to share itself with.

Love is higher above all else, it covers the widest expanse until it comes back. It penetrates deeper and deeper never running out of ability to keep going higher, deeper, wider.

When it comes across something to embrace, it engulfs it, supports it, nourishes it, helps it – without fail; not for any other reason but because IT IS.

Love needs nothing it just has to go to something because it is meaningless if not shared. It is lonely without someone to care about. It needs no doors, it is embracing, kind, it sees all good and helps to overcome.

It protects with such power and strength that nothing stops it, it knows no fear.

There are no possessions that mean more than its need to love. No home is more important than the need to supply for others it loves.

Time is of no importance because love never ends, whether in the presence of the loved or not it exists – it is and always will be.

It does not speak against itself, it could not possibly harm, because it is not capable; it only understands and gives all. It wishes to lavish, sooth, comfort; stimulate to be all it can be.

It lifts, smells beautiful and soft, cool and gentle, yet when needed it is bold and fierce to protect. It will ALWAYS stand before harm, but it does not need to own or hold back; it desires others to fulfill its choice.

Love can feel pain, it can be angry when love is betrayed and others are led away to be harmed – but, love never turns its back; it will always listen to Truth and embrace Truth.

Nothing can hold back love, nothing can outlast love, and nothing can destroy “TRUE LOVE”. Nothing will exist eternally except love.

Love is the common denominator in all good, without love you have nothing immortal within you and nothing to exist beyond a moment.

Only love is timeless, weightless, thoughtless, priceless, love just is, because it is God – (or as he calls himself “I AM)

To me I AM is the most powerful statement ever written - have you ever thought about it?



We, with our limitations try t understand

We, until God has matured us search our sleepless lives to know the answer to this and complete it.

We are turned around going totally the wrong way when we ask “What am I?”

It is simple math

What = Am +I

(or) I AM = What

We are not a what

We are

We are not an object

We create

We are not things

We obtain

What WE are, Is…..Has…….Will always be -, it is not perishable

“Things” perish or depart

Creation exists and stays forever – that is why things that are not of “I AM” depart from “I AM”. Without His sustaining the life in it perishes due to lack of His life force.

What is in Direct opposition opposes His life force, that is why the object is pushed down. The gravity of its separation captures it. It is then consumed within the power of the negative forces. This is not the desire; it is just the way it is. Unless the negative power is discharged the object will never have the power to overcome the repelling forces.

Anything of this world is made of this world and it will stay with this world.

Dust is but dust, all will decay that is in this repelled arena.

But when all returns to dust and the negative energy exists no more the gravity is broken and the life force can surge to its home.

Now the living forces are here, we are connected but there is just too much material / physical interference to make the better connection. Energy is weak – but it is not gone. I think as we remove the interference or power drainers from our environment - We even here can get the stronger connections.

When we feel the loss we have to find the source, eradicate it and stay on top of the repelling forces in our environment.

The answer to the equation is this:

I am because of I AM

I will because HE IS


Today, if you hear

Do not turn away

Let those who have ears understand

Let those who have eyes SEE

Do not harden your hearts like those in the past

But listen and follow, do as I say

It has all been laid out


My Father sent me

That you might know Him

By knowing me

I have gone to my Father now, so that the spirit can come and give you heightened understanding

You hear, you SEE, you understand – so you must follow

Speak what I say

Do what He says

Go where you are told

Lo, I am with you always

Even to the ends of the earth

Depart from this world

Pick up your cross and follow me

I AM….etched in your heart

I AM…the words you speak

I AM...the only way

I AM…life

I AM…strength

I AM…confidence

I AM…Charity

I AM…love

I AM…all you will ever need and all you were created to be

I AM…never far from you

I did complete the task

I did win the war

You my child were created to finish what I started

I began a new quest, the old passed away

It is Done…but a new beginning was ignited

That is the purpose ….to finish what was started

That will be the end of the age

That was…IS the plan

All power has been granted, All words spoken….All time closed…All purposes drawn

Time does not exist …only fulfillment


Come – I am in the wind, like a dance of free movement

Even when still, I still exist

Where does the wind begin?

Where does it end?

The wind carries all, even the things you cannot see

The wind can destroy, or it can lift

The wind can force into the ground or it can rise all above

Objects can block the wind, but they cannot stop it

The wind is not selective of what it carries; it carries the good with the bad and chooses the destinations of each

The wind does not worry about an outcome, it just continues

The wind does not stop, day or night, season or year

The wind just exists with all its power and gentleness

The wind controls all, nothing controls the wind

Wind and Love are all that Just are, and all that can not be stopped……………..SEE

My dearest brothers and sisters in Christ, He requested that we believe we are here to finish this. As for me: the reason I do not leave ….I do not give up…..I do not falter in my commitment……is because Love is all things, when you are being pulled down, you need someone to pull you up out and over.When we allow ourselves to be that charge needed, we are allowing Christ to be an ever present help in their time of trouble through us. I know in time, that person will be that for another in need.

I believe, I can do all things through Him who empowers me – charges me – lifts and hold me. My commitment is to God, to you, to my children and to the body of Christ. It is so much more than just a relationship between two people. It is the living example of the living Lord God Almighty so that all may SEE…HIM.

With the Highest Love there is…..through Christ,

Destruction is Coming Be Warned!

In studying Genesis so slowly for the first time, I can honestly tell you that I am learning more about God than I ever imagined possible.

Genesis 1:11-13

Then God said, "Let the earth sprout vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees on the earth bearing fruit after their kind with seed in them"; and it was so.

The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit with seed in them, after their kind; and God saw that it was good.

There was evening and there was morning, a third day.

Here again, we see God saying something is to be so and then allowing it to be carried out. Most of the Hebrew words that these are translated from we have gone over so I will move through this fairly quickly. We notice that God said it could be done, yet the earth had the responsibility of bringing forth what God has caused to be available. What the earth produced was plants that “yielded seed” the see was “after their kind” and trees “bearing fruit”, “with seed in them”, “after their kind”. God saw it and said it was good.

God is always in control of “What is possible”. He said each one of us were possible, so here we are. He has said what we can be – but we have to let it be. We must decide to bring forth what He has made ready for us. We must yield to Him in order to bear the fruit with seed that is His kind. If we don’t we will still BE all that He has set in place, the difference will be that what we bring forth, produce and feed into this world will be the “Kind” of stuff that is not of Him. God said this is bad, and it is made for destruction.

After reading in Jeremiah following up on what we have been discussing, I saw that Jeremiah was an assayer. This is the name of an encourager. Obviously, it is the polar opposite of a naysayer. Anyway, this is just a side note. I am closing with his story about what he had been going through with God and his people. This is a wonderful example of what devastation happens due to us deciding that what God has said is Good is not what we WANT.

I pray for everyone, including myself that we see how GOOD the Lord is and we bring forth with joy the kindness of all things….God saw that and said it was so GOOD.

With the Love of our Christ,

God Help Us,


Jeremiah 6:17-30 (GWT)

I posted watchmen over you. Pay attention to the sound of the ram’s horn. But you said that you wouldn’t pay attention. Listen, you nations, and learn, you witnesses, what will happen to them.

Listen, earth! I’m going to bring disaster on these people. It is the result of their own plots, because they won’t pay attention to my words. They reject my teachings. Incense that comes from Sheba is no good to me. Sugar cane that comes from a distant land is no good to me. I won’t accept your burnt offerings. I’m not pleased with your sacrifices.

This is what the LORD says:

I’m going to lay stumbling blocks in front of these people. Parents and children will stumble over them. Neighbors and their friends will die.

This is what the LORD says:

An army is going to come from the north. A great nation is preparing itself in the distant parts of the earth. Its people take hold of bows and spears. They are cruel and have no compassion. They sound like the roaring sea. They ride on horses. They march like soldiers ready for battle against my people Zion. We have heard the news about them. Our hands hang limp. We are gripped by anguish and pain like a woman giving birth to a child. Don’t go into the field or walk on the road. The enemy has a sword. Terror is all around. Wear sackcloth, and roll around in ashes, my people. Mourn as if you have lost your only child, and cry bitterly. The destroyer will suddenly attack us.

“Jeremiah, I have put you in charge of testing and refining my people. You will know how to test their ways. They are all vicious rebels. They go around slandering. They are all like bronze and iron. They corrupt themselves. The bellows of the blast furnace blow fiercely to make the fire melt away the lead. It is useless to go on refining because the impurities can’t be removed. {People} will call them useless silver because the LORD has rejected them.”

A Psalm to Dad

A Psalm To Dads:

A Dad makes a plan to be the best that best can be.
He knows what it takes to live in harmony and peace.
He protects his wife and children, upholding all things in faith,
That I, the creator of life, will anoint all his ways.
No one comes before this, or else his guard will drop
And then his precious family has to come to the battle front.
Some dad’s do not understand this…So I equip them all to fight
This honorable battle to secure the kingdom’s gates,
To ensure a needy traveler they will have the rest they need.
A house of the Holy, A secured and confident space.

A man was created special, a woman unique in design
A family an extraordinary decision; A responsibility that takes two.
A man must understand this concept of harmony and peace
Or the wife within his kingdom become so unlovely all must flee
The enemy goes for the heart, because there he can poison all life.
Adam left her vulnerable; Eve bore the fruit of that choice.
We all carry his failure in that blood line, it pumps from our heart through our veins
The fall of one felt by many, you see a Dad cannot be just a man
Everything about Him affects many generations and the cause / effects must be seen
Protect the heart of your life line, without a heart all is worthless in life
Through the concept of mutual conception, you dad, can have all you dreamed
Without her all those images fixed within your mind will be lost
You see she is part of your completion, without her, your dreams will never be seen

It is true without you she is just woe man, without her you will only be a man,
But together you are a family, a unit; you and I can be united and through her tied
The tie that binds us together as the Dad of the families of the KING.
This is who you are WITH her and WITHOUT her…you will never BE
So Be all that she sees in you, Because all she sees is so good.
Be what I planted in her heart for you – Her heart beats the truth inside of you

Remember the enemy is crouching…Remember he’s at her door ready to kill steal and destroy
Don’t make her fight you AND him…she can’t keep this up even through ME.
She is a woman and she’s weaker.
It is your strength through me that closes this door.

Happy Fathers Day,

Sometime to Give Someone a Break is Not Enough...Put Yourself Out There and Give 'em Your Hand

Before we move from Genesis 1:9 I want to be sure we look at these verses from Matthew 21.  Today, simply read these and think about them, pray about them.  I hope each of you have a wonderful Saturday. I pray that each of us think about what our motives are in the things we say and do.  I pray that even if just for today we can look at ALL the people around us as a child that God loves and is trying desperately to help get through this life.  If you are having a great day - praise God.  If you are thinking you have it all together and looking down on another person....be careful, it might be you some day.
My love to each of you...let's give someone more than a break today...let's give 'em a hand up.

What do you think about this? A man had two sons. He went to the first and said, ‘Son, go to work in the vineyard today.’ 29“His son replied, ‘I don’t want to!’ But later he changed his mind and went. 30“The father went to the other son and told him the same thing. He replied, ‘I will, sir,’ but he didn’t go.
31“Which of the two sons did what the father wanted?” “The first,” they answered.
Jesus said to them, “I can guarantee this truth: Tax collectors and prostitutes are going into the kingdom of God ahead of you. 32John came to you and showed you the way that God wants you to live, but you didn’t believe him. The tax collectors and prostitutes believed him. But even after you had seen that, you didn’t change your minds and believe him.

A Story About a Vineyard—Mark 12:1-12; Luke 20:9-19
33“Listen to another illustration. A landowner planted a vineyard. He put a wall around it, made a winepress, and built a watchtower. Then he leased it to vineyard workers and went on a trip.
34“When the grapes were getting ripe, he sent his servants to the workers to collect his share of the produce. 35The workers took his servants and beat one, killed another, and stoned a third to death. 36So the landowner sent more servants. But the workers treated them the same way. 37“Finally, he sent his son to them. He thought, ‘They will respect my son.’ 38“When the workers saw his son, they said to one another, ‘This is the heir. Let’s kill him and get his inheritance.’ 39So they grabbed him, threw him out of the vineyard, and killed him. 40“Now, when the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those workers?” 41They answered, “He will destroy those evil people. Then he will lease the vineyard to other workers who will give him his share of the produce when it is ready.”

42Jesus asked them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures:

‘The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. The Lord is responsible for this,and it is amazing for us to see’? 43That is why I can guarantee that the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people who will produce what God wants. 44Anyone who falls on this stone will be broken. If the stone falls on anyone, it will crush that person.”

Let It Be Seen

Today we are looking at the last half of Genesis 1:9

9Then God said, “Let the water under the sky come together in one area, and let the dry land appear.” And so it was.

Let the dry, barren place be seen is what this is saying. God laid a plan and a process and said "let it be".  God is a God of divine order.  In order there is consequence....which keeps things in their proper place.  The things or people out of order will only be so for a short time.  God has put all things in their place and said "Let is be", some time we just have not see the "and so it was" part yet - Just wait for it..it is coming!
Isaiah 1:2-31

2 Listen, heaven, and pay attention, earth! The LORD has spoken, “I raised {my} children and helped them grow, but they have rebelled against me. 3 Oxen know their owners, and donkeys know where their masters feed them. But Israel doesn’t know {its owner}. My people don’t understand {who feeds them}. 4 “How horrible it will be for a nation that sins. {Its} people are loaded down with guilt. They are descendants of evildoers and destructive children. They have abandoned the LORD. They have despised the Holy One of Israel. They have turned their backs on him. 5 “Why do you still want to be beaten? Why do you continue to rebel? Your whole head is infected. Your whole heart is failing. 6 From the bottom of your feet to the top of your head there is no healthy spot left on your {body}— only bruises, sores, and fresh wounds. They haven’t been cleansed, bandaged, or soothed with oil. 7 “Your country is devastated. Your cities are burned down. Your fields are destroyed right before your eyes by foreigners. Your fields are devastated and taken over by foreigners. 8 My people Zion are left like a hut in a vineyard, like a shack in a cucumber field, like a city under attack.” 9 If the LORD of Armies hadn’t left us a few survivors, we would have been like Sodom and Gomorrah.

10 Listen to the word of the LORD, you rulers of Sodom! Pay attention to the teachings from our God, you people of Gomorrah! 11 The LORD asks, “What do your many animal sacrifices mean to me? I’ve had enough of your burnt offerings of rams and enough fat from your fattened calves. I’m not pleased with the blood of bulls, lambs, or male goats. 12 When you appear in my presence, who asked you to trample on my courtyards? 13 Don’t bring any more worthless grain offerings. Your incense is disgusting to me, so are your New Moon Festivals, your days of worship, and the assemblies you call. I can’t stand your evil assemblies. 14 I hate your New Moon Festivals and your appointed festivals. They’ve become a burden to me, and I’m tired of putting up with them. 15 So when you stretch out your hands {in prayer}, I will turn my eyes away from you. Even though you offer many prayers, I will not listen because your hands are covered with blood.

The LORD Invites Israel to Turn Away From Sin

16 “Wash yourselves! Become clean! Get your evil deeds out of my sight. Stop doing evil. 17 Learn to do good. Seek justice. Arrest oppressors. Defend orphans. Plead the case of widows.” 18 “Come on now, let’s discuss this!” says the LORD. “Though your sins are bright red, they will become as white as snow. Though they are dark red, they will become as white as wool. 19 If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the best from the land. 20 But if you refuse and rebel, you will be destroyed by swords.” The LORD has spoken.

21 How the faithful town has become a prostitute! She was full of justice, and righteousness lived in her. But now murderers live there! 22 Your silver is not pure. Your wine is watered down. 23 Your rulers are rebels, friends with thieves. They all love bribes and run after gifts. They never defend orphans. They don’t notice the widows’ pleas. 24 That’s why the Lord, the LORD of Armies, the Mighty One of Israel, says, “How horrible it will be when I take revenge on my opponents! I will avenge myself against my enemies. 25 I will turn my power against you. I will remove your impurities with bleach. I will get rid of all your impurities. 26 I will give you judges like you had long ago, advisers like you had in the beginning. After that you will be called the Righteous City, the Faithful Town.” 27 Zion will be pardoned by {the LORD’s} justice, and those who return will be pardoned by {the LORD’s} righteousness. 28 Rebels and sinners will be crushed at the same time, and those who abandon the LORD will come to an end. 29 You will be ashamed of the oaks that you wanted to worship and embarrassed by the garden that you have chosen for your gods. 30 You will be like an oak whose leaves wither and like a garden without water. 31 Strong people will become tinder for a fire, and their work will be the spark. Both of them will burn together, and there will be no one to put out the fire.

Tomorrow we will be looking at a parable in Matthew 21:33-46 to understand this further and it’s implication to us today.

Let us pray for those that are against the will of God. Let us pray that after the devastation they find True Life.

Obedience Walks True
Words form as my mouth is ignited into motion,
Muscles strain, face contorts, sounds of the deep are hurled forth,
Tremendous pain and agony is the kindle,
Sparks burst into existence singeing all within reach,
The burn turns to a blaze from the oxygen expelled,
The torrents of tears come too late to extinguish the flames.
Death of so many from the combustible forces,
Tender twigs reaching for life crackle and smolder from the impulsive havoc,
New seasons, new life, through years of dormancy reigned,
Each planting… reaching fingers, through rich soil from debris,
Encouraging waters penetrate that which is buried deep,
Slow saturation, life drank it in,
Overcoming the demons that snuffed years from the scene,
God understood the pain and the cause,
He never gave up or quickened the time,
His patience and love are more than enough…
Like creation and then destruction to regain true birth.
Let us always remember the loss from the fires,
Always go rushing, so seeds will throw down.
Time is the magic when obedience walks true,
His steps are leading though only one path is seen,
Forward forever, the future has no end.
Behind are the lessons to teach others to grow,
Remember your yesterday, put away all strife,
It’s in this we grow mercy, so all may have life.

Is God in Your Way, or Are You in His?

Genesis 1:9-13

Then God said “let the waters below the heavens be GATHERED in to One Place, and let the DRY LAND appear; and so it was.

The first thing that really stormed my mind about these verses today was how awesome it must be to have total authority, confidence and trust in the ability to literally / materially realize what you have been conceiving. I am in awe of what it looks like when there is nothing standing in God’s way. He says it is so…..and so it is. “Boom, there it is!”

That is where a question met me square, eyeball to eyeball. It was taunting me, “If you are made in God’s image and He REALLY gave you all the same authority to conceive / realize just as He does, why is it not happening? Are you standing in God’s way, or is He standing in yours? “Boom, there it is!”

It is not as if I am the first woman ever to be taunted by this question. Heaven’s no! Eve was the first and Satan has very few tricks up his petty little sleeve. So I simply acknowledged that He is a liar here to steal, kill and destroy what God has “allowed” us to partake in. He is NOT that tough once you “decide” to believe God.

If God said, “Let it be so” about anything. We simply have to “Let it be so and get out of the way”. So…moving forward let’s look at the Hebrew word Qavah from which the translators’ derived this word.

What this verb means is:

1) to wait, look for, hope, expect 2) waiting (participle) 3) to wait or look eagerly for 4) to lie in wait for 5) to wait for, linger for 6) to collect, bind together 7) to be collected

When we understand the meaning of Qavah we can’t help but realize that “whatever” entity this verb is a speaking of has already been formed and made. This entity is simply expectantly, hopefully, eagerly, waiting. It is lingering with such a great propensity of how wonderful it will be when it is displayed or uncovered.

Let’s look a bit further into this verse to understand what this entity was “going through”. The waters above and the waters below the horizon were in movement. They were being gathered “into one place”. (Genesis 1: 1-8)

When God gathers something into one place, he sets the place, once for all. It is predestined to be there and available.

We are stopping here today. I pray that you look at what is going on in and around your life. I pray that you ask if you are with God or against God. I ask that you prayerfully listen to his disclosure of facts and that you wait with expectancy for the sight of His revelation.

With the love of Christ,

God Has Lost Nothing.

Have you EVER thought about that?

Today I was thinking about being a “Founder”. There are times, many times, when people ask me about “my business”, to which I am quick to say “I do not own a business". "I work for a public charity”. What I did do was “make a decision”. I decided to follow the One that “Founded” ALL things. I decided to give Him the position of “Founder” of ALL things. I decided to “Find Out” what He needed to be done through my efforts.

I simply “discovered” which is not really so awesomely unique. It is what All of us are supposed to be striving to do. I believe we are ONE body in Christ. I believe that He is our head. I believe that if we are his body that ALL our best and lacking efforts are wielded perfectly... because of who HE is. Which does correlate to us being the head and NOT the tail. I pray for those that do not yet understand. I know there is a day when they will. I pray that each moment of every day, God is helping me grow into the maturity of my image; which IS the image we all comprise to uniquely present His IMAGE….The perfect body of Christ.

Whoever you are, where ever you are….know my prayers are covering you ……right where you are…not where you THINK you SHOULD be, but right here…right now. At this moment in time, Let God be God. He has not lost you. His heart and mind were on you before your time had space. His eyes and hand have been watchfully protecting you as you try your best to make it through each day. His love and promises he wrote down for you to be aware, that before you ever knew Him, He had provided your way. He knows the pain, toil and length of all that is on your path. He has set a plan in motion for the moments of battle that lie ahead. He has been calling and patiently waiting for your heart and ears to receive, all the best of the blessings He has reserved with your name in its proper place.

Do not listen to what others call you – your father gave you a name. He is the one that defends you; He knows your rightful place. Do not listen to their mocking; it is His ears receiving their words. Cover all people as you are leaving so they too can endure their days. Run toward your Maker…tell Him you found out the truth. His son was born of Mary, she too decided to listen and believe. She gave birth to our risen redeemer, Jesus the Christ and God’s seed. He lived, loved and shared of His Father – The Almighty and Loving “I AM”. He walked and he spoke with true wisdom, He showed us the power of all things, He told us the helper would be coming, He died, witness, declared what was to be. He now has resurrected our life line; He has secured what can never be destroyed. He is …right now in this moment…in heaven reigning as our King. He is loving and covering….your heart, thoughts and purpose within this plan. He knows you might not feel able….this too God provided in advance.

Today, hear him calling and wooing; sending a serenade from his very throne room. He is calling and saying where are you? I love you and miss you my dear. Please stop; even if for just this moment. I simply want you to know, I care and created you perfect…..perfect in every way. Please do not run so quickly….you might fall and get hurt due to fear. Fear is not why I created you; I desire to protect you from all that might harm. I am your strength and your courage, your vindicator and the lover of your soul. Before you run off let me touch you…your sweet face brings me much joy. Don’t cry this won’t last forever, if you listen…I can show you the way. I will leave the light shining just keep looking I am faithful and true.

I pray you heard what He was speaking, that you hope with everything that you are in Him. I speak because someone must tell you…..He is ALL you will EVER truly need. He knows your deepest desires and longings. He set them in you so that you could live, love and share to the HIGHEST degrees. Be still and Let there be light upon you, within all the darkest of your days. He separated you from the darkness. He set a firm foundation for your feet to stand. He said the light was a “good thing” He said you were created to be cherished and loved. He has something to share with you. It is about what is within you that was planted to share here. He has been so very patient; will you wait to hear what He says?

Christ protected us all before He ascension, now the Holy Spirit has been released, our job is simple….to ”Follow our Founders" universal business plan”.

This is our “how to do, what we are to do: 1 John 5: 14-15 “We are confident that God listens to us if we ask for anything that has his approval. We know that he listens to our requests. So we know that we already have what we ask him for.

In Christ,

To Discern Accurately You Must First Know the Truth!

Proverbs 17:13-15 (GWT)

Whoever pays back evil for good—evil will never leave his home. Starting a quarrel is like opening a floodgate, so stop before the argument gets out of control. Whoever approves of wicked people and whoever condemns righteous people is disgusting to the LORD.
From the very beginning God separated and contained the waters. He put boundaries on them. He differentiated entities by characteristics and then He lovingly let us know which of them was good.

Think about the correlation between all the things we have been discussing today.

Much love to each and every one of you, in Christ,

What are you Beginning, Today?

Genesis 1:6,7,8
1In the beginning God created heaven and earth.2The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep water. The Spirit of God was hovering over the water.3Then God said, “Let there be light!” So there was light. 4God saw the light was good. So God separated the light from the darkness. 5God named the light day, and the darkness he named night. There was evening, then morning—the first day.6Then God said, “Let there be a horizon in the middle of the water in order to separate the water.” 7So God made the horizon and separated the water above and below the horizon. And so it was. 8God named {what was above} the horizon sky. There was evening, then morning—a second day

Yowm is a Hebrew word meaning:day, time, year, yesterday, today, tomorrow, a 24 hour period, day as opposed to night.  It is a "division of time", a working day or a day's journey.  When used of the collective past it is life time, in generic terms it is a period within time.

I combine all this to help us understand that God has purpose, thought and intention with every inclination within Him as well as what it creates.  He is what we are to be.  We ARE to strive to the best of our abilities to reach this lifestyle or manner of living out our lifetime.  If we do not, not only are we not useful, but we are against what He is striving to accomplish.  Do not be deceived!

The bible speaks of being deceived many times.  Sometime we are deceived and  at times we just ignore what we know.  This is another thing to not be deceived about, there is a difference.  God recognizes who falls into transgression and who is rebellious.  God tells us in Galatians 6:7

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man sows , that he will also reap.

In James 1: 16,17,18 He tells us not to be deceived or fooled:

My dear brothers and sisters don’t be fooled. Every good present and every perfect gift comes from above, from the Father who made the sun, moon, and stars. The Father doesn’t change like the shifting shadows produced by the sun and the moon. God decided to give us life through the word of truth to make us his most important creatures.

While God was creating everything good and perfect, separating light from dark and determining what they produce. He had already decided to give us life through the word of truth to make us His most important creatures.

I pray ‘this day in time” that you will not be deceived. That you will remember How Good the Lord is and not turn away, but run in all fullness toward Him that created you.

With the Love of our Christ,

I leave you with this poem to help us think about what we are sowing today.

Choice of Life
Light of dawn pushes out the dark,
Rays of home sear through the dense skies,
Heat hits, condensing our lives... our separate lives.
Each person walks, two feet can’t part, flesh rips from force.
The battle lies deep, not pressed from outside,
The mind wills the legs but the heart will not divide.
The tongue is a razor, slashing to and fro...
A machete to clear if the conscience takes hold.
Defend and survive or thrash and destroy?
Or lay weapons down and commune with the soul?
Life will be lived no matter where we go,
Resisting or planting, a choice is in tow.
Each day builds tomorrow, one stone at a time,
Take time to choose with deliberate thought,
Conscious of tomorrow and the path you leave behind.

At the Crossroads...are you looking both ways??

Jeremaiah 6

Stand at the crossroads and look.Ask which paths are the old, reliable paths.Ask which way leads to blessings.Live that way, and find a resting place for yourselves.But you said that you wouldn’t live that way.

God told the people "I posted watchmen over you. Pay attention to the sound of the ram’s horn. But you said that you wouldn’t pay attention. Listen, you nations, and learn, you witnesses, what will happen to them. Listen, earth! I’m going to bring disaster on these people. It is the result of their own plots,
because they won’t pay attention to my words. They reject my teachings."

He then went on to ask them: "Whom can I speak to? Whom can I give a warning to? Who will listen?

He rebuked them and said "Their ears are plugged, and they aren’t able to pay attention. When the LORD speaks his word to them, they show contempt for it and object to it.

He warned them and said "I am filled with the anger of the LORD. I am tired of holding it in."

Can we really be so arrogant as to think God is not the same yesterday, today and tomorrow?  He is still telling us this same message.  For anyone that knows he can speak to us, who is hearing his warning, who is listening 24/7 and their spirit in unity with the Lords heart is grieveing, this is what the Lord is saying - we continue in Jeremiah 7:1-11

The LORD spoke his word to Jeremiah. He said, “Stand at the gate of the LORD’s house, and announce from there this message: ‘Listen to the word of the LORD, all you people of Judah who go through these gates to worship the LORD. This is what the LORD of Armies, the God of Israel, says: Change the way you live and act, and I will let you live in this place. Do not trust the words of this saying, “This is the LORD’s temple, the LORD’s temple, the LORD’s temple!” It’s a lie. “ ‘Suppose you really change the way you live and act and you really treat each other fairly. Suppose you do not oppress foreigners, orphans, and widows, or kill anyone in this place. And suppose you do not follow other gods that lead you to your own destruction. Then I will let you live in this place, in the land that I gave permanently to your ancestors long ago.  ‘You are trusting the words of a saying. It’s a lie that cannot help you. You steal, murder, commit adultery, lie when you take oaths, burn incense as an offering to Baal, and run after other gods that you do not know. Then you stand in my presence in the house that is called by my name. You think that you’re safe to do all these disgusting things. The house that is called by my name has become a gathering place for thieves. I have seen what you are doing,’ ” declares the LORD.

Now to take this back to the beginning  - Genesis I leave you with Isaiah story...just a chapter in God's Story Being Told:

Isaiah 45:19 I have not spoken in secret,In some dark land;I did not say to the offspring of Jacob,Seek Me in a waste place';I, the LORD, speak righteousness, Declaring things that are upright.

Your story is in the Book too.....will it be a story of light or dark?

As Christ pleaded: I lay before you life and death....please choose life....Please!

Just A Day -

This day has gotten away from me girls.

I have been working on some of the things we spoke about yesterday.  There is quiet an orchestration of events going on in our midst.  The winds of change are blowing.  Stand up and out; feel the wind blow your hair and allow it to carress your cheeks.

Today, I send a poem and my love,
In Christ,

The Window

Me inside, the elements out,
The pane of glass, between.
The rain pelting down
From swift moving forms
With weight, so clear, to see.

Desire for the wet to singe my face,
and run down as tears I can’t release.

The pane before me stops
Those precious moisture drops.
So I sit, and watch, no emotion is drawn.
Oh, to be that glass,
To feel the wind and the rain,
And to pass through, even, to the other side.

Do I dare take a chance,
Open up to the storm,
Or stay safe, in my home, element-free?

The pleasure of the rain,
That sensation, beyond the singe...
The sinking, deep cool I pursue
Overcoming the heat, experiencing comfort, at last.

The breeze which moves
The clouds in, through, and past
To swaddle my freshly washed flesh.
To sit in, and see, feeling trapped, to live life,
As I watch, every element, passing by.

This moment has passed
And the rain's letting up,
The brightness, of the sun, breaking through,
Too bright to look out,
So I turn my face in,
Close my eyes, and think of the day
When all will be done
And my Savior will come
To release what's been holding me down.

My peace comes from Him
No matter the day
The time or the season I'm in.

My skin, He will cool
And my tears, He knows well,
There’s no need, or desire, to show
My pain to this world.
We all have our hurts,
It's encouragement we need,
The strength, to get through this day.
So again I lay low
To lift up my pain,

And the pain of the others I know.
Our God sees what we face

And our hearts, He protects
He’s our warrior, physician and friend.
Today, when you hear,
Do not harden, your heart,
As you did, in those earlier years

Jeremiah 6:16

This is what the Lord says, "Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls".  But you said, "we will not walk in it."

God said further down that these were rebellious and arrogant people.  He also said that He would remove the voice from among them because they would not turn so that they could be saved. 

He tells us to walk His walk of peace we will be discussing this today....for now...pray.
See you soon,

What REALLY Matters?

We are going to look at the first question from yesterday and giving some knowledge to base our answer.

What exactly is the “expanse”?

While others are debating what word correctly translates the Hebrew word Raqiya’, we are going to sidestep all that and simply find out what it even means. At that point all arguments will be mute.

Raqiya’ annunciated raw-kee’-ah means an extended surface (solid), expanse, firmament. As an expanse it would be a support or flatness as a base. As a firmament it would be a vault supporting waters above. Think of architecture what the vault of a ceiling looks like.

Here are two translations one from God’s Word and the other KJV of Genesis 1:6, 7

Then God said, “Let there be a horizon in the middle of the water in order to separate the water.” So God made the horizon and separated the water above and below the horizon. And so it was.

And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.

As we can see by understanding the Hebrew language. This is something solid, it divides, it is not emptiness, or taking on the form of things: it is amidst and it supports.

Looking a bit further down we also see that this is the first thing God “made”. The darkness, light and day He said “let it be and it was”. This, solid matter that supports, He said let it be and Made.

Today, I want us to prayerfully focus on what “matters”, what is solid, real and supporting. Look at what we "Let" happen and what we take part in “making” happen.

With all my love to each of you, in Christ,

Ministry in Word

Divine Petition – Part 3
神的祈求 – 第三篇

(Partially based on Charles Spurgeon’s “Morning and Evening” devotional)

Continued from Part 2

Jesus Prays for Us

In the Gospel of Luke chapter 22, when Jesus was having His last Passover supper with His twelve disciples, He told His disciple Simon Peter:

“Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail.” (Lk 22:31-32)


Jesus told Peter that He had prayed for him, so that his faith might be preserved. It was Jesus’ prayer for Peter, so this prayer was powerful and effective. Although Peter subsequently denied our Lord three times, but he was eventually restored by Jesus. As Peter represented Jesus’ disciples in his days back then, today he represents all of Jesus’ disciples. So Jesus’ prayer for Peter may also be taken as His prayer for us.


Jesus Our Constant Advocate

If so, how encouraging it is for us to know that our Redeemer Jesus Christ never ceases interceding for us. He intercedes for us when we pray and in between our prayers. He pleads our case and advocates our cause to God. As His supplications protected Peter from his danger of failing faith, they also shield us from the dangers oblivious to us. If we should know how often Satan wants to sift us, then we know how great Jesus’ intercession has been for us. It is God’s mercy to us that we do not know or see the great and small dangers of which we have been spared, otherwise we will be too fearful to live our life.


Let’s look at how comforting His words to Peter were. He said, “Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat. But. . .” But what? “But go and pray for yourself”? That would be good advice, because we need to pray in the face of trouble. But it is not what Jesus said. And He did not say, “But I will keep you watchful, so you will be preserved,” even though that would be a great blessing from God. Instead Jesus said, “But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail”. Lord Jesus has prayed for us in our daily challenges as He had prayed for Peter when Satan wanted to shake him up and put a snare on his path to stumble him. Jesus does not just leave us alone to fend for ourselves; He goes directly to the Father to plead our cases.

让我们看一看他对彼得的一番话是多带安慰的,他说,「西门!西门!撒但想要得着你们,好筛你们像筛麦子一样;但. . .」但什麽?「但去为你自己祈祷」?这也会是一个好忠告,因为我们面临苦难时须要祈祷,但这并非耶稣说的。而他亦没有说,「但我会使你警醒,让你可以得以保全」,虽然那会是从神来的一大祝福。耶稣而是说,「但我已经为你祈求,叫你不至於失了信心。」主耶稣已经为我们在我们每日的难题上祈求,就如当撒但要摇动彼得和放绊脚石在他的路上要使他跌倒之时耶稣为他祈求一样。耶稣不会不顾我们让我们保护自己,而是他直接到天父那里为我们的事请求。

To be continued next week.

May we be thankful for Jesus’ continual prayer for us. May we be confident in our perseverance with our faith in Christ.

1 Day is Like A Thousand Years.....

Today we are moving into Genesis 1 verse 6.

Genesis 1:6
Then God said, "Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters."

I am not going to inflect my own thoughts about this today. However, I will pose a few questions for you to consider:

With one fully understood and empowered employment of thought, action and placement, did God set the stage for many things to be done throughout all time?

Do we even understand what the expanse is?

Is this expanse solid and visible, or empty and vast?

Is separation for good or all or harm of some?

Does God cause it, or does sin?

When reading this verse I immediately thought about the Exodus story. Did God say verse 6 knowing this was up ahead in His Story being Told?

Exodus 14:19-22 (GWT)

The Messenger of God, who had been in front of the Israelites, moved behind them. So the column of smoke moved from in front of the Israelites and stood behind them 20between the Egyptian camp and the Israelite camp. The column of smoke was there when darkness came, and it lit up the night. Neither side came near the other all night long.

21Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea. All that night the LORD pushed back the sea with a strong east wind and turned the sea into dry ground. The water divided, 22and the Israelites went through the middle of the sea on dry ground. The water stood like a wall on their right and on their left.

The First Day of the Rest of Our Life...

Qara (call) is a Hebrew word with the meaning of proclaiming. It means to call out, cry, utter a sound. For us it means to do that with the name of God. It means to read aloud or read to oneself….simply to read. It also means to summon, invite, call for, commission, appoint, call AND endow.

In Genesis 1:5 we hear God calling light day and darkness night. He gave a name to it and called it by that name. He chose it, meaning it was chosen by Him.
Echad in Hebrew means one or first; it also means each and every. It also means only, once as well as “once for all”. It can take on the meaning of one…another, the one ….the other, one after another and one by one. A meaning that I found interesting was – eleven (in combination and eleventh (ordinal)

Yowm annunciated Yome in Hebrew is a word that I found very enlightening. Years ago when I started studying Hebrew and Greek language as it pertains to our bible it changed my life.

I will break some of the meaning down today and we will work our way through it for the rest of our lifetime (you will get that in a bit =D)

Meaning :
1. day, time, year
a. day (as opposed to night)
b. day (24 hour period)
1. as defined by evening and morning in Genesis 1
2. as a division of time 1b
c. a working day, a day's journey
d. days, lifetime (pl.)
e. time, period (general)
f. year
g. temporal references
1. today
2. yesterday
3. tomorrow

Each day we live is the first day of the rest of our life. This is over used and we don’t think about the depth of its meaning. This is why we are going to break it down, moment by prismatic moment. I leave you with what God enlightened me to start this amazing adventure I live “called” Kaleidoscope Butterfly, Inc.

There are people in life that build your strength and those that give you strength.

The irony is that usually the takers in life force you to build inner lasting strength due to the helplessness one can experience or the battle in isolation- due to trying to win with your own strength. The givers are the ones that come to your aid when you are bottoming out of self strength.

Neither is a lesser or more pivotal instrument in your personal evolution. Each simply a player in what I understand life to be: Moments, beautiful prismatic seconds twisting uniquely in and throughout our individual tunnel; refracting off the mirrors of our yesterdays which ultimately reflect our tomorrow and turn ever so awesomely into our life… for our eternal picture to form of who we intrinsically are. -Candace Huffmaster

Only God Can Divinely Name

There is a Story......A Story Being Told cont.

We know we are God’s children and we are coming together to truly hear what His spirit is trying to tell us.

So let’s simply imagine Him sitting beside our bedside, telling us a story, as we drift off to sleep.
I imagine the scene going something like this:

A child is reluctantly crawling into bed, as her dad is pulling up the covers. She lays her head deep into her soft pillow. He tenderly sweeps back the soft, tussled strands of hair, leans down and sweetly kisses her forehead.

She says “Daddy, I am not sleepy can you sit with me and tell me one of your stories?” To which he smiles and asks her “which one?” She says, “Tell me something new.” The dad rubs his chin, draws in a deep breath and says, “Hmmm, something new?” Well ….

Once upon a time, before you were ever born, I had an idea. I had been thinking about it, pondering it, for some time. Knowing what I was conceiving would be not simple task,I thought about each element and how it would affect the other. I had to think about the weak parts and how they would be supported in order to be all that they could be. I contrasted each movement of all entities to be sure all was in balance, then I thought about the process it would go through. I got so excited about the thought of it: what it would look like, be like and how much pleasure I would derive from being part of it, that I had to do it.

At first I simply created the heaven and the earth. It was very dark and hard to see well so I decided to go ahead and add the light. It was amazing princess! At first the darkness was so vast and consuming and when the light came I could see how beautiful everything was. I made the two to be distinct. Knowing this, I knew they needed a name in order to be distinguished. I named the light day and the darkness night. This was the creation of evening and then morning. I had created the first day…and it was such a beautiful thing.

As for you precious…you need to take advantage of this evening I created and get some rest…then in the morning we will rise refreshed.

Her eyelids heavy, her chest slowly rising and falling she drifts into sweet dreams of all that her dad created for them to enjoy.

My love to each of you, in Christ
