To all those following this soul’s journey – I’ve determined that ‘blogging’ as a witness is a little behind the times. :) It’s been in my heart for years to relaunch this site and it seems the Lord is pushing the issue. 1) The current state, using older methods of blogging, is time consuming and hinders me from posting as it can take multiple hours. 2) It isn’t cost effective to keep using the same provider.. and 3) Business changes at the provider over the years have been the main contributor to #1 and #2 and 4) I have purposed to not use God’s resources for businesses that agree with and push an agenda that is contrarian to my beliefs.
As a result, the site will take a new look (eventually). It will maintain the theme as a witness to the Lord’s goodness and faithfulness. I will continue to stand on the rooftops and proclaim about His protection, His provision, His help, His comfort, His peace, His mercy, His grace, His longsuffering, His forgiveness, His strength.. I will sing of the Lord’s goodness. Indeed, God is good, all the time..
Until then –
Brethren: Proverbs 3:5 … He will do what he says if we do our part faithfully, in spirit and in truth
Heathen: We are choosing TODAY which ideology to align our soul with – Take your pick, there is only 2. There is no other way but Christ. That which we choose today is what we will receive later – this cannot be changed. Careful.. pride doesn’t care about later, it only concerns itself about now. “Later” is too late to change our mind as no one is promised tomorrow, let alone the next minute. Acts 2:38 …
Notes: Heard from the Lord multiple times to “give” and have been praying for direction as to whom. Felt the pressing of a man on my heart who has a ministry in Ghana. He confirmed that I heard my Shepherd’s voice. Thank you Lord.
Notes: Received references to the book of James back to back to back (3 straight confirmations, one after another). Between the 2nd and 3rd confirmation this morning, I texted a friend that I desire that God’s goodness flows outward from this temple in all aspects and “not just talk about it.” Opened up my daily devotion – James 1:22, title “Practice What You Preach”. Yes Lord, amen.
Mark 13:21-23 And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not: For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect. But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.
