I felt prompted by the Holy Spirit today to make an update on this website and let everyone know that although things have been quiet, I’ve been very busy getting everything ready to do what the Lord has asked of me, including working on my own damaged heart. Unfortunately I’ve had to walk through some very difficult circumstances the last two years and have faced some heartbreaking internal trials along the way that (felt like it), set me back a bit and left a little mud on my shoes, but as we all know, the Lord is faithful who will not allow us to be tempted (to give up) beyond what we’re able to endure but with every temptation (to give up) will make the way of escape and let me just say, He has done just that. I’m learning a lot about myself, the Holy Spirit and the sad condition of mens’ hearts in this late hour.
The Lord has asked me to share what I know, however small that may be, with His people via podcasting, so I’ve been spending my extra time learning how to do that effectively as well as praying over this new adventure. I’m not at all comfortable with it but sometimes the Lord asks us to do things that take us so far out of our comfort zone or ability that we may even question if it’s His leading. What I’ve found is that with each new asssignment or new place He takes me, it requires me to re-visit the upper room and continue in prayer until the Holy Spirit comes and anoints me to do what I’m called by Him to do. It’s never easy to obey God in a new thing but it’s much easier to obey when we take the time to seek Him and be filled again for another season we’re about to walk though.
I’m thankful to my Father for His grace and watchful eye over me, as ministering to the Lord first, is my life’s focus and then ministry to others. With that life focus comes the need to believe God for His provision but I have to say that through everything I’ve went through to learn and grow in faith, He’s always taken care of me. Paul the Apostle said in Phillipians* that he’d learned how to be abased and he learned how to abound. Both of these seasons of life require some internal learning about the power of Christ within us. In the seasons of being abased, we may be tempted to give up on faith and take matters into our own hands even if it takes us away from His will for us and in the times of abounding, we may be temped to put our trust in riches and remove our faith from our only true source; our Father in heaven, who longs and desires to take care of His children. I can truly understand the intent of the Apostle Pauls admonishment, as he himself learned how to handle both seasons with grace and with thanksgiving. (*Phillipians 4:10-13)
Hopefully soon you’ll see an updated website with new podcast episodes available. The amazing thing is that the couple of podcasts I did about two years ago are still being downloaded on Itunes to this day, our God is faithful. Please continue to keep me in prayer as I endevor to move forward with the Spirit of the Lord in my life. I’m trusting Him to take care of what I can’t and move me into His perfect will. May God bless you all with the abundant grace and peace of Jesus Christ our Lord and thank you so much for your much needed prayers, patience and financial support.
