All of you will be tested beyond your capabilities, and only you who depend on the strength of My Spirit will make it.

You who try in the arm of the flesh will fail and will fall by the wayside.

I tell you plainly, there is only one way you will survive the workload and the stress of the battlefield this year, and in the years following, and that is by doing My work in the spirit, not in the arm of the flesh.

Any event can be viewed from many angles, but the only correct view, the only complete view, is God's view. To have the privilege of looking at things from God's viewpoint takes great humility and diligent prayer. But once you see something as God sees it, you will have more faith, more peace of mind, a clearer understanding and more conviction to follow His will.

When things get too much for you and you just can't possibly make it, and you know you can't do it, that's the Lord's plan! That's the point He wants you to come to, so you'll know you can't do it, there's no possibility of you doing it, and you'll throw yourself completely on Him. You'll throw off all those burdens, empty your pockets of all your weights, take them off your shoulders, and just put them on Him and then take time with Him.

Friday, November 24, 2006 Stress NOT! - Written for Jamie :)

"No matter what is going on around you, no matter how busy you are, no matter how important the work is, you can choose to resist the spirit of stress, and instead keep focusing on Me, keep asking Me for help with your priorities, and keep drawing on My strength. "

"The way to stay stress-free is to live a healthy spiritual life and keep your spirit clean, doing the things that bring faith, praise, positiveness, humility‚ love, and unselfishness into your life; and fighting the natural but destructive qualities of pride, fear, selfishness, self-centeredness‚ and independence."

Thursday, November 23, 2006 Taking time with Him is importan

When your workload has increased, when it has changed‚ when there are other battles that you are fighting in the spirit‚ all these things put a strain on you and your spirit, and that strain must be combated by extra time with Me, extra time in My Word. Otherwise, the weakening can happen much more quickly.
Ask others to help you and check you if they see you getting so busy that you're not taking the time in filling up that you need. It's not a luxury; it's a requirement!
The physical and spiritual combine. If you're run down in the physical, it has an effect on your spirit. If your spirit is run down, it has an effect on you in the physical. Your health depends on both these factors. Just as you have to watch for your physical health, you have to care for your spiritual health.
The more demanding your job is, the more you're pouring out to others, the more you have to give of yourself, the easier it is for your reserves to be depleted. If you're not being faithful to fill up the storehouse again, to fill yourself with Me and My Word and to absorb My way of doing things, then the faster you're weakened, to the point where the Enemy can come in with depression.

Adversity is to your spirit what exercise is to your body, and it makes you stronger spiritually, builds your stamina, develops your humility, strengthens your link to Me, makes you more dependent on Me and makes you reach out more to others.

You and you alone are the reason if you feel stressed about them. It is either your attitude, your inability to see your true limits, your lack of using the new weapons, your inability to trust Me, your personality, your lack of keeping Me in first place, your lack of casting your cares on Me, or your pride-or all of the above-that cause you to get stressed out.

Love lets the past die. It moves people to a new beginning without settling the past. Love does not have to clear up all past misunderstandings. The details of the past become irrelevant; only its new beginning matters. Accounts may go unsettled; differences remain unsolved; ledgers stay unbalanced. Conflicts between people's memories of how things happened are not cleared up; the past stays muddled. Only the future matters. Love's power does not make fussy historians. Love prefers to tuck the loose ends of past rights and wrongs in the bosom of forgiveness--and pushes us into a new start.

You've got to have the attitude of "to whom shall we go, no one else has the Words of Eternal Life!" (Jn.6:68). Otherwise you're not going to make it! If you have consecrated and dedicated yourself and have made that kind of a commitment, then no matter how hard it gets, you're going to stick. If you know you've got to stick no matter what, then it won't matter whether you think you can make it or not; you'll just keep going and you'll just keep serving the Lord, even if you die on your way.

Jesus Is Enough!

(Jesus:) To say that I am enough is also acknowledging that nothing is impossible to you. There is nothing that you cannot go through, nothing you cannot survive losing, nothing that can move you, because you would still have Me‚ and that's all you need. You are standing on the Rock, and there you cannot be moved. (GN1187:61)

The more you give to Me, the more impassioned you become for Me. The more you live for Me, the more you will see Me work for you. The more you test Me, the more you will find My power is proved. The more you sacrifice for Me, the more you will gain from Me. The closer you draw to Me, the closer I will draw to you.-Until you reach the point in your life where you realize that I have fulfilled all your dreams, I have made good on all My promises, I have kept My every word, I have been faithful at every step, and I have proved that I am more than enough for you.

There you will find the passion and the love and the overwhelming desire to give and live completely, fully, and without restraint, for Me. That's when your service knows no limits, and you throw yourself wholly into My Spirit and count all else a loss* because you have found everything in Me.

Who wants to give it a try? Who wants to face danger? Who wants to be a part of the greatest finale of any story, movie, or war that has ever been written, played, or watched? Will you rally around each other and attack? Will you, like John Paul Jones, say you haven't even begun to fight yet? Are you willing to leave behind your peers who are less than willing and obedient to follow you into the fray? Will you be willing to fight for the lives and souls of your brethren? The choice is yours. The decision is yours. Start today. Obey. Study My Word and live it!

You know better...

One of my songs. A little choppy but any help with it would be appreciated, including any music for it.


Verse one
As I walk down my life's road,
I get easily attacked by tests.
Though I feel so weak now Lord,
please help me to carry these burdens.

Chorus
You always know better than I,
so please show me the way.
Always stay here close by me,
and give me words to say every day.

Verse two
When my life isn't going so easy,
You take me up in Your strong arms.
Though I may sometimes even cry,
You gently dry away the tears.
Even though I stumble along the way,
You pick me up and carry me.
I may get hurt by what others sometimes say,
but you would say things to help me.
Repeat Chorus

Verse three
I know sometimes I would ask 'why?',
but You got have a reason for everything.
Though yet another friend has said good-bye,
You give me grace to keep going strong.
It seems like my world will crumble apart,
but You're there to help me go on.
Lord, You always make me feel alright,
even if things are all going wrong.
Repeat Chorus

Verse four
Lord, I can't imagine living without You,
or there wouldn't be a purpose in living.
I know it's hard to forsake all for You,
but it will be worth it to keep going.
Lord, I ask You to be with me,and to guide me along life's road.
Shine Your love through so others can see,
so by You, they can feel loved.
Help me to come through this sea of problems,
so I can some out a better person for You.
Repeat Chorus 2 times before music fades

Fight for your faith!

Fight for your faith. Covet My Words daily and do not allow the Enemy any place, any voice‚ any thought, any influence in your heart. Fight, by continually submitting yourself to Me, by verbally telling Me that you are willing to do My will, that you choose My will, not your own. Then the power will come, and Satan will flee when he sees the weakest saint upon his knees. You will send your adversary packing, and he will flee! He has no power over you. You will be free of fear. Fear will have no hold or power over you because you will have given yourself to Me. You must make the commitment not to give place to your feelings, emotions, or any negative thoughts that come to you. You must hold on to My Word, knowing that in so doing your obedience and trust will bring the victory.

Saturday, November 11, 2006 One of my favorite - "From Jesus - With Love"

As a prelude, I've never been one for romance, so the reason for liking this isn't the "fairy tale love" concept. - At least, not consciously! I don't actually know why I like this so much (must be the deeply hidden feminine hormones in me :D), but I feel it depicts rather beautifully how foolishly we run away from our Lover when all He wants is to love us and woo us. - We really are our own worst enemy, yet He still loves us just the way we are.
This FJWL has been a great encouragement to me during those times I've felt ugly, unloved, helpless, stupid, and all the other negative things the enemy tries to throw at us. - Its just so reassuring to know I've got such a hot Lover Who encourages me to be who I am, how I am, and is inlove with me. I'm hooked!
We danced long before the midnight chime. I was yours, and you were Mine, and what precious togetherness we felt! But then, like the famed Cinderella, you dashed out of My arms and down the stairs and away, afraid that the midnight chime would bring you total exposure and total humiliation, afraid to be found in My arms so naked, so destitute, so nothing.
What I try to show you is that I love you because you are you, and not because of your talents or because of anything you can do for Me. I gave My life for you! There's nothing you can really do to repay that, and I'm not asking you for repayment. I'm asking you for gratitude. I'm asking you for praise and thankfulness. I'm asking you for love.
So will you face Me and cling to Me past the midnight chime? Will you stay past the crucial point, that turning point in your life when you must either turn to Me and confess that you are nothing and that I am your all in all, or will you run away and try to uphold your frivolous shams? Which will it be? Can you not accept My Love?
Stop thinking that you must be lovely for Me to love you. You are so unlovely in your sight, but you are beautiful in My sight! Stop thinking that the mirror is the way to judge how you're doing with Me and how you're doing with others. People need to be loved, they need an understanding heart and outgoing concern. You can give them that, and that will be more to them than any physical beauty you could ever give, or any intelligent thoughts and ideas you could ever offer.
The beauties of the Spirit are what matter most: the tenderness of the heart, the humility of the spirit, the meekness. These are the things I want to bring out in your life. This is what I ask of you before the midnight chime. -
Will you still be Mine?

The kind of love that I'm talking about is the kind that truly prefers the happiness of others to your own-the kind that lays down its life that others may live, the kind that's willing to sacrifice just so life can be a little easier for others. It's not easy; it's the most difficult law the Lord ever gave-the Law of Love. That's the kind of love that the Lord is asking each of you to have, and that's the kind of love that will bring about unity! So don't worry about everyone else, and whether or not everyone is doing their part to bring unity. Just ask the Lord to make you more loving-and then sincerely do your best to love* and you'll be bringing about unity!

Friday, November 10, 2006 forake all for Him, the all in all

After all, Jesus gave His all! – He came and suffered and bled and died for you to save your soul, to save your life for Eternity! So you should be willing to do anything for Him now, whatever he asks or tells you to do! If you’re not willing now to turn around and lay your life down for Him, to turn around and live and fight and die for Jesus, Who was willing to suffer and die for you, then you’re no disciple!
Jesus was willing to die for us to save us, and He wants us to be willing to die for Him to save others! He died for others, He died for us, so He expects us to be willing to do the same!
My goodness, when Jesus did all that He did for us, of course we owe Him everything! Of course we should forsake all and follow Him and try to win as many others as we can! My Lord, you should certainly be willing to die for somebody who saves your life! That’s why His Word says, “I beseech you that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.” (Rom. 12:1) It’s only our “reasonable service” to try to give our lives back to Jesus, seeing that He gave His for us!

I need spirit–touching time with you so that I can mold you into the extension of Me and My love that you need to be.

I want secret time in the inner chambers with you, communing heart to heart with you, so that I can begin to soften those places that are getting hard and inflexible, so that I can knead those knots of tension out of your spiritual life and give you great peace and confidence. I need time alone with you away from regulations, schedules, duties and distractions. I need quality conference time with you each day.

"I will test your faith in whatever areas it needs strengthening."

I set before each of you many tests of faith. I will test your faith again and again in order to give you opportunities to exercise it. I will test your faith in whatever areas it needs strengthening. Those of you who are strong in a particular area will not face as many tests in that area. But any area where your faith is weak or in need of strengthening, in that area you will be tested—for the sole purpose of teaching each of you to activate your anointing, to use your gift of faith, to rise above difficulties, and to overcome impossibilities.

Thursday, November 09, 2006 Grace from surrender!

As you put yourself on the altar and lay down your own will and your own self‚ dying that My will might be done, you will be blessed with the grace that comes from surrender...

You'll find yourself having supernatural grace and seeing things through My heavenly viewpoint-the viewpoint that sees things clearly, where you don't matter so much anymore, and you hardly even mind if your will isn't being done, because My will is, and that's what's really important.

It can be done. You can have the victory, but it all starts with a choice of the heart. It starts with an understanding of the problem, and a decision about what is most important to you-yourself or Me? Your pride or the work? Your plans or My will?

Once you have chosen Me, My work, and My will, you'll get the grace to bear whatever changes or correction are necessary; in fact, you'll even welcome them, knowing that it was never really about you anyway. You'll find joy again in being a part of the structure‚ being that integral pillar of strength that can bend and blow and adapt in the winds of change‚ without becoming brittle and snapping due to pride. You'll defuse your landmines and My army will move on victorious to change both the Family, and the world, for the better.

"Whenever you make a mistake or get knocked down by life,
don't look back at it too long. Mistakes are life's way of
teaching you. Your capacity for occasional blunders is
inseparable from your capacity to reach your goals. No one
wins them all, and your failures, when they happen, are just
part of your growth. Shake off your blunders. How will you
know your limits without an occasional failure? Never quit.
Your turn will come."

Keep the Heavenly Vision, amen?!

Keeping the heavenly vision is also remembering Me, remembering My promises of love and comfort to you, and how much I have in store for you when this life is over.
Your present existence is such a fleeting thing; your life is but a vapor. Soon, so many of the things that seem so difficult and hard for you are going to be wiped away, and in their place you will receive crowns of life and everlasting rewards for having bravely stayed the course and kept the faith.
But when you forget all of that, everything can seem so discouraging and difficult. I can even start to seem so far away, pushed to the back of your mind, and the promise that I'm going to return again and gather you to Myself seems very distant.

(Dad:) Everyone needs the Word, but when you're going through times of testing or battles, you need it all the more, because it's the Word that you stand on and that gives you faith for the battle. You have to keep standing on the Word for as long as it takes, and simply trust that the Lord knows how long to keep you under the fires of His testings and purgings, and that He knows when to give you complete victory.

You have faith as long as you hold on to the Word. You only need a mustard seed of faith, that's all the Lord said you need, and that's enough for the battle. The Lord just wants you to have enough faith for one day at a time. That keeps you coming back to Him, clinging to Him, needing Him and His Word for the next day.

Sometimes the Lord will allow you to have a weakness which He means to be a strength to you. It's meant to keep you very close to His Word, clinging to it for your very life.

You must meet every situation you face with praise and positiveness, realizing the truth of My Word that all things do work together for good to you! That is the absolute truth. The battle that you must fight is to claim every event as a positive one, and by force of your spiritual attitude, to battle through and not give up or lose ground in spirit until that event actually has a positive result. If not now‚ in front of your eyes, then eventually, as you and others claim your rights and hang on to the silver lining that is always behind every single thing that happens to you.
