A life of yieldedness and a heart that's willing to do My will is always useful to Me, no matter where you are or what I call on you to do. As long as you're willing and yielded to do My bidding and obey My will in your life, you'll always be used by Me to the fullest.

"You are born anew this night. My wonderful wife, the last petal of your rose fell and then I created you again, but of different materials tonight. This has been the most significant night of your life. There will be many more nights and days of new anointing and new strengthening, of promises passed between you and Me, but tonight is the most momentous one that you've had up till this time.
For as I consecrated you, I recreated you. I transformed your soft petals into a tremendous, magical jewel--a jeweled, magic rose, so you may be a rose that can endure what a normal rose could not. This night I transformed you so that you are now stronger and more robust for the times ahead.
Receive the gifts of My Spirit upon you.
Receive the love that I wish to give you, that you may pour forth more love upon others.
Receive the wisdom that I wish to give you in greater measure, that your decisions may be wise and led of Me.
Receive the gift of hearing from Me that I wish to make available to you in greater measure, that you may learn to hear from Me more at every step of your life, in all that you do.
Receive the gift of praise that I pour upon you, that My praises may find themselves more often on your lips and tongue, so that others may know of the love that you have for Me.
Receive the gift of understanding that I pour upon you, that you may discern the hearts of others and better understand the situations that are before you.
Receive the gift of tenderness that I give you, of gentleness with those I have placed in your care, of meekness of heart and body, of simplicity and love.
Receive the gift of humility that I will give you with this new anointing." (#3289)

One day you will sit upon a throne (Rev.20:4). One day you will be able to wish for whatever you desire, and it will become reality. One day you will revel in unimaginable wealth. One day you will be perfectly formed and beautiful‚ perfectly strong and fit. One day you will luxuriate in every good pleasure that appeals to you. One day you will know a love and happiness so complete, so all-encompassing, so perfect that it is unimaginable to you at this time.

Saturday, October 13, 2007 Endurance ...

Endurance is the ultimate in faith. Endurance is saying to Me that although you don't see My answer yet‚ you know that it is coming and you will last as long as needed until I finally deliver you.

----

Life is not guaranteed to be easy. Life is full of tests and battles, and someone who endures through long or seemingly endless battles and tests of faith is a powerful testimony to all the watching hosts of Heaven. It's a testimony of the kind of faith that truly pleases God—the kind of "but if not" faith that endures endless difficulties because it believes in My promises and in My goodness and faithfulness to deliver, no matter what the circumstances look like.

I asked God for strength, that I might achieve;

I was made weak, that I might learn humbly to obey.

I asked for health, that I might do greater things;

I was given infirmity, that I might do better things.

I asked for riches, that I might be happy;

I was given poverty, that I might be wise.

I asked for power, that I might have the praise of men;

I was given weakness, that I might feel the need of God.

I asked for all things, that I might enjoy life;

I was given life, that I might enjoy all things.

I got nothing that I asked for, but everything I had hoped for.

Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered.

I am among all men most richly blessed.

—By an unknown Confederate soldier during the American Civil War (1861–1865)

When you can truly let go of all that you hold dear—whatever it is that you're desiring or wanting Me to do for you—and you place it in My hands and give it freely to Me, then I in turn will fill you with the true riches and desires that you have only dreamed of!

Tuesday, October 02, 2007 Hope begins in the dark...

"Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work: You don't give up."--Anne Lamott

Not afraid to appear less than perfectly polished

"Often we can achieve an even better result when we stumble yet are willing to start over, when we don't give up after a mistake, when something doesn't come easily but we throw ourselves into trying, when we're not afraid to appear less than perfectly polished."--Sharon Salzberg

Every day you may make progress...

"Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb."--Sir Winston Churchill

From a personal PNP, 2005

(Jesus:) I know how you feel right now, but you can rest assured that you are learning, you are growing, you are making the progress I want you to make. This feeling of discouragement at the slow progress you seem to be making, and the seemingly impossible situation of overcoming your habits is a part of your training. This is your trial; these are the weights that gird your legs. You are being trained to run, and although you may feel like you are walking so slowly, soon these weights will be removed and you will fly.
I know there are others who are running alongside you right now who seem to be passing you up with ease, but they're not you, and they're not going through the same training.
Hang in there. That is the message--hold on! I don't expect nearly as much from you as you expect from yourself--all I want is for you to put your arm in mine and come on a stroll with Me, through the garden of blessings, tribulations, joy, and trails--all of which are part of this same garden that is so beautiful. I know where we're going, and I just want you to come with me, one step at a time. I wouldn't be teaching you how to take this a step at a time if I expected you to take leaps and bounds.

Monday, October 01, 2007 "Being re-created"...(My all time favorite!)

If you don't stay close to Me, you'll get weaker. You'll experience discouragement and frustration. You'll make mistakes that you could easily have avoided. You'll wear thin in your ability to tolerate problems; you'll react with impatience when confronted with problems. You'll snap at people; you'll deal with others self-righteously. People will seek to distance themselves from you, as they will be discouraged and experience battles when around you. You won't be happy; you'll know something is wrong, but you won't have the strength to make the changes you need to make to overcome. You'll gradually get weaker and be less effective in your shepherding and your ability to inspire and lift up others. You'll experience ­periods of anxiety, of being distraught and confused about life and what you're doing with yours. The world and what it has to offer will look more attractive. You'll look at things more in the flesh and less in the Spirit. You'll be tired and downcast. You'll be sad. 100. I don't tell you these things to scare you or intimidate you, My love. I tell you this because I don't want you to have to experience any of this, even in the slightest degree. I want you to live a life that is full of My love and My Spirit; that's what I died for! I died to save you for eternity, yes, but I also died to give you a better life while you're alive--that no matter what your physical condition, whatever problems life brings your way, My Spirit in you will cause you to overcome, because you'll have your eyes on Heavenly things and your heart more full of My love.
