Sacred Secrets Unfold…

Listening and Obeying

Beloved Divine Family,

There is gospel song that is speaking to my heart right now. Last week, it was on my heart to go on a liquid fast. I couldn’t figure out why I needed to fast. Consequently, I did not do it. A few days later, I encountered the greatest warfare of my life. My disobedience left me open to attack. Now I’m trying to do damage control for all that happened, just because I wasn’t disciplined enough to listen and obey.

One of the things I always tell you is that this is a blog of MY spiritual journey. I’m transparent so that others will not feel like their journey, as a Christian, is going to be perfect all the time. Having a spiritual life is a mixture of the natural and spiritual and its not always a pretty picture wrapped in a big red bow. It’s hard, beautiful, scary, fulfilling, and filled with tons of grace and mercy.

I don’t want anyone to think that you have to be perfect to be a Christian. Our spiritual walk is an unbelievable adventure, but it’s real. That is why communication with God is so important. Having worship time is essential. Yes, my life is busy with being in college, working full-time, having a family, and preparing to take the National Counselors Exam, but all of those things can push our time with God out. If anything, I should have been seeking God even more.

Sometimes I do wonder if this blog is a bad idea. People see me, a minister, going through so much. How can I make a difference? Even if I touch just one person then being transparent has been worth it all. So I leave you with this…. Nope, I’m not perfect, just redeemed by the Lamb and the word of my testimony. (Revelations 12:11)

Connecting with all that is Divine, All that is Good, and All that is God…

Divine Family,

One thing God has opened my eyes to recently is.. well… me. It all started a few weeks ago when I asked God to connect me with all that is divine, all that is God, and all that is good. I opened my mouth and invited all good energy that is connected to God and is connected with divine loving energy, both seen and unseen, to connect and flow through me. I asked God to dwell in every area of my life and to cast a divine light on anything that is in me that is not connected to the goodness of God.

Do you know what happened… God showed me some ugly areas of me that needed a whole lot of work. All of the areas were all connected to DISCIPLINE. Yuck!!!! God will not allow me to be complacent in my life. It doesn’t matter if I’m hurting, depressed, busy, sleepy, hungry, or whatever. God has said, “ENOUGH.”

Thank you, Loving Jehovah, for not allowing me to get comfortable in my stuff. Forgive me for allowing my flesh to determine my day. I am not here for me. I am here to be a light in the world. Not a dim light, not a small flickering light, but to be a big, bright, brilliant, and illuminating Light.

Prayers and Affirmations

If discipline is a challenge for any of you, I lift you up and I encourage you to be open to whatever God shows you about yourself. Be honest, most of all, with yourself. We have to trust God enough to admit to ourselves that we have a problem that is bigger than us.

We invite the complete, holy, and perfect love of God to flow through us. Shine a light and purify the dark places and replace them with all that is God. Make the crooked places straight as only your love can. We walk in the healed, perfect, and divine love of God. We connect to all that is good and all that God, in Jesus name, Amen. And so it is and so it shall be forever.

I AM A DIVINE REFLECTION OF GOD.

I AM A DIVINE REFLECTION OF LOVE.

I INVITE ALL THAT IS GOOD AND ALL THAT IS GOD TO FLOW THROUGH ME.

I WILL SPEAK WITH DIVINE LOVE. I WILL HEAR WITH DIVINE EARS. I WILL SEE WITH DIVINE EYES. I WILL WALK WITH DIVINE FEET.

I INVITE ALL GOOD ENERGY AND LIGHT OF ALL THAT IS GOD AND ALL THAT IS GOOD, FROM THIS UNIVERSE AND BEYOND, TO FLOW THROUGH ME AND LEAD ME IN THE GOOD WAY.

Digging Deeper…

Greetings in the complete, whole, and perfect love of God:

One of the great things I have learned about prayer is that if I put a prayer out into the universe then I have to be prepared for the response. When I asked God to help me grow into a higher place of thinking and to remove any part of me that attracts or manifests lower living, God has been faithful in answering my prayer.

The answers have been eye-opening and if I’m being completely honest a little scary because it will require me to let go of the way I navigate parts of my world.

Scriptures and Words of Hope

Psalm 148

Living Bible

Praise him from the skies! Praise him, all his angels, all the armies of heaven. Praise him, sun and moon and all you twinkling stars. Praise him, skies above. Praise him, vapors high above the clouds.

Let everything he has made give praise to him. For he issued his command, and they came into being; he established them forever and forever. His orders will never be revoked.

And praise him down here on earth, you creatures of the ocean depths. Let fire and hail, snow, rain, wind, and weather all obey. Let the mountains and hills, the fruit trees and cedars, 10 the wild animals and cattle, the snakes and birds, 11 the kings and all the people with their rulers and their judges, 12 young men and maidens, old men and children— 13 all praise the Lord together. For he alone is worthy. His glory is far greater than all of earth and heaven. 14 He has made his people strong, honoring his godly ones—the people of Israel, the people closest to him.

Hallelujah! Yes, praise the Lord!

Trusting in the Process…

Greetings in the Divine, Perfect, and Complete love of God:

Family, I do hope that you will come to understand, grow, and enjoy this new format for the devotional blog. I didn’t realize that my previous struggle with writing, in the last few months of the previous format, was because God was leading me in a higher direction.

Scripture & Words of Hope

Psalm 31:1-3

New International Version

Psalm 31

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

In you, Lord, I have taken refuge;
    let me never be put to shame;
    deliver me in your righteousness.
Turn your ear to me,
    come quickly to my rescue;
be my rock of refuge,
    a strong fortress to save me.
Since you are my rock and my fortress,
    for the sake of your name lead and guide me

A New Day…

Greetings in Divine Love,

I am excited to announce a new format coming to Sacred Journey Devotionals. I have had to really seek God and be sensitive to the direction I was being led. It took some time of quietness and revelation, but I am happy to say that I now understand the path that I should walk. I want to share this prayer/affirmation with you.

Prayer & Affirmation

I COME INTO AGREEMENT WITH GOD.

I think, feel, speak, and react as a reflection of the perfect love of God.

Since the Word of God reminds me that, “As a man thinks, so is he,” the thoughts I now put out into the world will be that of divine love, divine wholeness, divine blessings, and divine encounters. (Proverbs 23:7)

I walk the divine path, in faith, knowing that divine encounters and blessings will find me. I don’t walk alone, goodness and mercy are always with me. (Psalm 23:6)

I walk in knowledge in understanding that when the scripture says, “Let THIS MIND be in you that is ALSO in Christ Jesus,” that it is up to me to change the way I think. (Philippians 2:5)

My mind comes into agreement with all that is good, pure, lovely, true, noble, right, admirable, excellent, and praiseworth. (Philippians 4:8)

Attraversiamo, Crossing Over…

Mark 4:35-40

New International Version

Jesus Calms the Storm

35 That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side.” 36 Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. 37 A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. 38 Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?

39 He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.

40 He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”

Jehovah Father,

We love and adore you. We put no one or no thing in front of you. If we have some unbelief in us, help our faith, under grace. If we have fear, help our hope, under grace. You have called us to follow you, even if there is a storm ahead. As long as we have faith and follow you, we know that we will cross over to the other side of through. Hear our prayers and silence our doubts, in the precious and mighty name of our Lord and Redeemer, Jesus, The Christ. Amen. And so it is and so it shall be forevermore.

Winds of Change…

Worship with Scripture

John 3:4-8

Living Bible

“Born again!” exclaimed Nicodemus. “What do you mean? How can an old man go back into his mother’s womb and be born again?”

Jesus replied, “What I am telling you so earnestly is this: Unless one is born of water and the Spirit,[a] he cannot enter the Kingdom of God. Men can only reproduce human life, but the Holy Spirit gives new life from heaven; so don’t be surprised at my statement that you must be born again! Just as you can hear the wind but can’t tell where it comes from or where it will go next, so it is with the Spirit. We do not know on whom he will next bestow this life from heaven.”

Without you, Lord, where would I be? Please don’t ever take your presence, which is my peace, away from me. Thank you for allowing me to walk in your shadow and grace. Strengthen us, your servants, for the journey ahead, until we meet face to face. We lift this prayer and petition to You, In the precious and perfect name of Jesus, The Christ. And it is so and shall be forever more. Amen, Amen, and Amen again.
