Honey In The Rock…

Good morning, Precious Ones:

I pray this post finds you all in perfect health and peace in your mind, body, spirit. I pray that you are encouraged to continue to walk out your walk of faith daily. I pray that Love is guiding all of your actions today.

I pray that you will be persuaded to show Love to those you encounter today, whether in person, over the phone, or even through social media.

Today someone will need to know about hope. There will be several chances today for all of us to glorify God.

In my kitchen, on my chalkboard, I wrote a few months ago, “Did you make God proud today?” I purposely make myself accountable every day. I understand my life is not just about me. It’s bigger than me and it’s bigger than us. Yes, some days I fall short, praise God, but I know that each day, each moment, each minute is brand new. Don’t waste your grace, use it wisely.

Psalm 81:16 says that in God we have everything we need. God is more than enough to satisfy us. There is honey in The Rock!!! Oh how sweet it is to trust in you Jesus.

Today’s worship video features Brooke Ligertwood and Brandon Lake and cowritten by Mitch Wong. I always blast my radio when I hear this song. I pray that it blesses you the way it does me. I can’t wait for our church to sing this song.

Be blessed family. Everything is going to be ok. God has everything you need to satisfy you.

I Never Lost It…

Good morning, Precious Ones:

Praise God from whom all blessings flow. Yes, indeed, God desires all of our praise, no matter what we are going through.

The last few of years have been tough for most of the world. I know more than a few people, who are Christians, who had some real questions for God. We wouldn’t be human if we didn’t ask why.

People who read the Sacred Journey Devotionals sometimes ask me why I include music videos in my devotionals. The main reason is because music can get inside crevices of the heart that words cannot.

When our hope is teetering on the ledge. praise and worship music can pull someone back from walking away from God. One of the only things that has kept me during any season of hardship is music that uplifts my spirit and gives me hope.

There is a song by Tramaine Hawkins entitled, “I Never Lost My Praise.” The words to this song always cries out to me to remind me that I’m not the only one going through something. The song shifts the focus from me and places it back on God. I pray that this song blesses you the way it does me every time I let it wash over me.

1 Corinthians 2:1-5

New International Version

2 And so it was with me, brothers and sisters. When I came to you, I did not come with eloquence or human wisdom(A) as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God.[a] For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.(B) I came to you(C) in weakness(D) with great fear and trembling.(E) My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words,(F) but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power,(G) so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.(H)

Get Ready…

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.

Love God, Love People..

Mark 12:30-31

New International Version

30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.

Father God,

The season of 2020 has brought so many things boling to the surface. We have taken our eyes off of you. Hatred, political unrest, pandemics, and so many other things have our focus. Man has looked to man for the answers. Lord God, bring things back into focus. Our eyes have been roaming for answers when the answer has been in front of us the whole time. May we return to our first love, which is You. As we love you, we will be authentic in our love for our fellow man. In Jesus name, Amen.
