Psalm 23

New King James Version

The Lord the Shepherd of His People

A Psalm of David.

23 The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not [a]want.
He makes me to lie down in [b]green pastures;
He leads me beside the [c]still waters.
He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will [d]dwell in the house of the Lord
[e]Forever.

Jehovah Shalom (The Lord Is Peace),

I thank you this morning for giving me a mind full of your peace. My highest trust is in you. You, and your love for me, have proven yourself over and over. I rest peaceful in you, Lord, knowing that my steps are already ordered. As a corporate body, we thank you, Lord, for being The Ultimate Peace that passes ALL UNDERSTANDING. The peace you give us surpasses any peace that the world may try to give. The peace of the World is temporary, because it can change in a moment. No matter what state life may find us, Lord, you are our Holy Divine Peace. We humbly bow down, in worship, to celebrate You. For those that don’t know, or have never experienced, your Peace, Lord, we pray that you would allow them to the opportunity to experience You. May their minds be open and may their eyes see with clarity how great you truly are, Lord. We lift this prayer to you, in the power and authority of our Redeemer, Wayshower and Friend, Jesus The Christ. And we let it be and it shall be forever more, Amen.

I Love You…

Worship With Scripture

Hebrews 12:7-11

Living Bible

7 Let God train you, for he is doing what any loving father does for his children. Whoever heard of a son who was never corrected? If God doesn’t punish you when you need it, as other fathers punish their sons, then it means that you aren’t really God’s son at all—that you don’t really belong in his family. Since we respect our fathers here on earth, though they punish us, should we not all the more cheerfully submit to God’s training so that we can begin really to live?

10 Our earthly fathers trained us for a few brief years, doing the best for us that they knew how, but God’s correction is always right and for our best good, that we may share his holiness. 11 Being punished isn’t enjoyable while it is happening—it hurts! But afterwards we can see the result, a quiet growth in grace and character.

Oh how you do indeed love us. In the name of Jesus we do pray. Amen.

Today’s video is not a song, but it is still motivation. As I share my spiritual journey with the world, my hope is that my transparency will help others know that I am just like everyone else. My biggest struggle is self-discipline and self control. This aspect, of the fruit of the Spirit of God, is the hardest part of my spiritual journey. Today, I’m listening to different videos to help get me motivated. I’m sharing what video has helped me in this moment. Thanks to Dr. Billy Alsbrooks.

Lord God, Great Jehovah:

I love you so much. I worship you because you are worthy of all my praise. Thank you for working on me. Thank you for putting the desire in my heart to want to be better. Please walk with me, as I learn to be self-controlled and self-disciplined. You have shown me, time and time again, images of me at my best. You are giving me motivation based on how you see me. Help me, Lord, to make the connection so that I can manifest all that you have for me. Continue speaking to my heart. My heart, mind, and soul hunger for you and you alone. Walk with me Lord, in Jesus name. And so it and so it shall be forever more. Amen.

Led and Inspired Writing…

A Note From the Vessel…

Good morning, Family,

I wanted to personally thank each of you for being on this journey of faith with me, as I write out what God puts on my heart and share what I feel led and inspired to write about.

God purposefully allowed me to call this site a “blog,” as the writings are about my Christian journey, both as a teacher and also a student, on this spiritual path.

One very important thing I’ve learned, as someone who flows in the prophetic and as a spiritual teacher, is if God has NOT told me to say or write something, on His behalf, I DON’T. It is a dangerous, bold, and prideful attitude to write or speak by my own power and authority, as a servant of the Lord.

On this blog, and whenever I am sharing about the Lord, it is my job to point you to Christ, not to me. I fear, love, and respect God entirely too much to speak out of turn.

In saying that, there may be days, each week, when you don’t hear anything from me. On the other hand, some weeks I may write every day. It truly depends on what God lays on my spirit and heart. This morning, I felt led to give an account of the process of my writings.

Family, you are all on my mind and in my heart each day and each week. I know that you may desire a devotional message each day, but I love you too much just to put words on a page. I sincerely hope you understand my heart and my love both for you and for the Lord. My first desire is to be obedient to Christ. If you feel an urge to hear from the Lord, ask him to speak to your heart. What a wonderful way to stay connected to Christ.

I know that most of you read the devotional messages that I write and are blessed. Even though you don’t write back or share your feelings, I can feel in my spirit when you have been touched by what God has said through his Word, the Worship Video, and the Prayer.

Yes, it is always good to know that my writings are not in vain, but ultimately, it’s not about me. It’s about Jesus trying to speak to you. The reason He has had me to write the devotionals is to connect with us. Don’t miss the moment to speak with God and have your own personal time communing with the Lord.

Again, I thank each of you for walking this sacred journey of faith with me. The road may be bumpy, at times, but I take comfort in knowing that we are not alone. (Be sure to listen to Worship Song below by Aretha Franklin).

May God bless you all, May he be gracious to you and keep a watchful eyes over each of you, in Jesus name. Amen. And so it is and shall be forever more.

In Christ alone,

Bones Rattling…

Worship with Scripture

Ezekiel 37:1-7

New International Version

The Valley of Dry Bones

37 The hand of the Lord was on me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the Lord and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. He led me back and forth among them, and I saw a great many bones on the floor of the valley, bones that were very dry. He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live?”

I said, “Sovereign Lord, you alone know.”

Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones: I will make breath[a] enter you, and you will come to life. I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord.’”

So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I was prophesying, there was a noise, a rattling sound, and the bones came together, bone to bone.

Heavenly Father, Lord Jehovah:

You can do the impossible. You can turn depression into joy. You can turn tears into laughter. You can bring purpose back into a life that is lost, hurt, and confused. Precious Jehovah, thank you so much for breathing into us a new breath. Thank you for holding the Devour back long enough for us to take our first deep breath of you. For those still dry and parched, in your spirit and soul, cry out to God and ask him for a resuscitation in your life. Cry out, let Him hear your heart. Jesus, hold my brothers and sisters as they cry out for you. Family, open your mouth and prophecy over your life and speak out into the atmosphere. Jesus, Intercede on their behalf. It is in your name that we lift these prayers up to you. Amen.

Whose Image Do You Reflect…

Worship with Scripture

1 John 4:4-6

The Message

4-My dear children, you come from God and belong to God. You have already won a big victory over those false teachers, for the Spirit in you is far stronger than anything in the world. These people belong to the Christ-denying world. They talk the world’s language and the world eats it up. But we come from God and belong to God. Anyone who knows God understands us and listens. The person who has nothing to do with God will, of course, not listen to us. This is another test for telling the Spirit of Truth from the spirit of deception.

Gracious Jehovah:

How great and mighty is your name in all the earth. We thank you for your triune love for us. God, The Father, God, The Son, and God, The Holy Spirit. Lord, because of your love and the sacrifice of God, The Son, in the human form as Jesus, we are able to approach your Throne. We humbly ask that you continually remind us that you are greater than anything in this world. May we call out to you, in faith, and know that the presence of God that dwells in us is greater than anything in the world, in the precious name of Jesus. Amen.

I bless and praise your holy and majestic name. You have taken the broken parts of us and created something beautiful. As we come before you broken, you are the Potter that creates a usable vessel, like the Japanese art of Kintsugi. Thank you for reminding us, Lord, that we don’t have to wait to come to you until we think we are perfect. It is not us that makes us perfect, it is YOU. You make ALL THINGS NEW. May we come to you just the way we are…broken. In the name of Jesus, Our Lord and Redeemer. Amen.
