Sticky Hands

Talking to God, I was shocked when He brought up a sin that I realized I was not ready to confess just yet. Going deeper, it came to me, that the reason why I did not want to confess it was because I perceived it would bring pain and shame and I was enjoying God right then and did not want to ruin it. He then took me into a vision.

I was a toddler in the vision who just stuck her hands in mama’s fudge frosting. My guilt was obvious, and pleasure overcame the shame, as I licked the sticky sweetness off of my pudgy hands.

Papa was sitting in His big chair next to the fire and He called for me. I looked up wondering how to hide my hands and didn’t go to Him. Then I heard Him calling sweetly for me and I could not resist! I ran to Him and took a flying leap into His lap, not a thought to my dirty hands. He lifted me up and kissed me all over with raspberries on my belly. He loves me so much. He played horsy with me bobbling me up and down on His knee, peek-a-boo and other wonderful games.

It was then I voluntarily, in my toddler way, splayed my fingers and pointing with my other hand, showed Him my sin! He feigned surprise and swept me up into the kitchen and readied a bath in my favorite place, the kitchen sink.

When the water was just right, the bubbles perfectly mounded, he gently set me in the sink. Papa played with me and gently washed me and I helped him by presenting my body parts, arm, leg, sticky hand. He washed me until I was completely clean and wrapped me in a warm towel and brought me to His chair and cuddled with me until I fell into a deep slumber in His strong arms.

Nowhere in there did He make me feel guilty, ashamed, nasty, none of those things. He made me feel loved and cherished and when I didn’t want Him to get any more of my stickiness on Him I showed Him my sin, and He took it away.

Isn’t He good? Just go to Him and let His goodness bring you to repentance.

THE SENIORS ARE GRADUATING THIS YEAR!

THE SENIORS ARE GRADUATING THIS YEAR!

Just like high school seniors and college seniors, My seniors are getting their degrees this year!

Just when you thought retirement was around the corner, I am going to re-fire you, not retire you!

The youth are coming and we need all hands-on deck! We are going to need nanny’s and grandmas to rock those new babes in Christ! We are going to need more kindergarten teachers and grandpas to teach them how to play ball in the spirit.  And we need cheerleaders to encourage them along the way!

The greatest move of God is coming!  Get ready to stay off the couch and get out of the rocking chair!

Many of you have said, “But Lord we are sick!  Our knees and hips hurt. and we are tired. and because of that. our patience is thin!”

The Lord says, That is what I redeemed you from!  What are you hanging on to those sicknesses and diseases for?

I am sending a refreshing and new ease of the miraculous where one day you can barely walk and stay awake to running with boundless energy!

EXPECT IT!!

Dance!

Can you hear the sound of heaven?  Let your feet dance!  Raise your voices for a great shift has happened in the earth!

As My people lay stunned in the magnificent spiritual shift, they have let the enemy rest.

Do not let him gain a foothold.  Dance!  Let the worship reverberate throughout the land!  Do not let the enemy rest!  Do not let him gather strength!  When you are tired, get up, worship and begin to dance!  Begin to shout!  VICTORY!

Free to Be!

It’s about time I help you start to dream again for this season has been one of survival, dreams put on hold.  Hope deferred has even made itself known.  Know this, I Am in the healing hearts business!

For being heart sick can affect you not only spiritually but physically and I will heal everything that the enemy has put on you!

It’s time to dream again.  I will be putting options in your path for you to choose.  Abundant choices are coming your way.  Not everything has to be a life or death decision.  No worries about going through the wrong door with this.  This is for your enjoyment, your delight!

I want you to dream again of beautiful things, of enjoyable things.  I want you to feel free again!  To be creative again!  Free to be!

Vision of the King in the Ballroom

I was lying in bed just before sleep talking to the Lord and suddenly I was in a vision but in a vision so real I didn’t know if I was there or where I was! He said let me take you there, let go.

The room was expansive with tall ceilings and red walls and gilt moldings, shrouded in candlelight.  I could sense other people around, other beings, but I could not hear them. It seemed like a ballroom in a palace!

There stood in front of me, my Lord, King of Kings dressed in all finery.  Dark blue coat and gold braids adorning his light blue waistcoat with his breeches neatly tucked into fine leather black boots.  His beard was close and his dark brown hair in loose waves pulled back at the neck.  So, handsome, simply breathtaking! I had never seen him like this before!

His eternal blue eyes were trained on me. Oh, those eyes, those eyes I knew so well.  Waves of love were coming off him.  Desire.

I sensed I was dressed in a magnificent light blue ball gown, I could feel it on my body.  My hand reached to my neck to feel the heavy necklace I knew was there.  In my knowing, it was a diamond necklace.

I suddenly felt I was not good enough for him to pay attention to me.  I was very self-conscious since the last time I remember I was in my sleep t-shirt with tousled hair in my warm bed. He was so regal and commanding and stood in front of me looking right at me.  I felt exposed and wanting, uncomfortable, for he could see everything.

He lifted his arm for me to take and I saw my elegantly gloved hand reach for him. I could not look at his shining face. He led me over to a floor to ceiling window darkened by the evening.

“This is how I see you,” He said quietly.

I looked at my darkened reflection.  I caught my breath!  Looking back at me was a woman in her prime.  Royal.  Queenly.  Me.  My long red hair shown like copper cascading in waves, the sides brought up elegantly in an intricate twist. A crown twinkling in the luxuriant candlelight. A heavy diamond pendant necklace, just like I felt. My incredible gown, light blue, shot through with gold thread and motifs.

He took my hand gracefully; we started to dance.  Never once his eyes leaving me. I could smell his scent. Feel his breath. I knew his love.

Then I awoke.

I will Fulfill My Word to You

It has been a long time coming.  Those promises I have given you that were in the womb of waiting, of waiting for fullness of maturity.

You had thought that I had forgotten.  You had thought that you were disqualified.  You had thought time for that has passed. I am here to tell you, I forgot not one of My promises given to you.  I will fulfill My word to you.  My Word of life, My words of promise..

It is coming where you will awaken and make your way out of the hardened shell of the previous season of disappointments.  The light will be so bright and penetrating it will draw you out of that shell, that hardness and it will crack, then shatter! As you arise spreading your new wings.  Wings of hope and promise and a guarantee that I will always fulfill My Word.

What have I said to you?

 

Let Me Help You With the Strength and Persistence and Consistency for Change

It is the time of the year when many people evaluate their habits and where they are in life even according to their bodies.

I would tell you that yes, your physical body is important to be able to live life fully with energy and zest.  Strength and stamina of the body also affect the soul and spirit.  When you are not in the place you want to be, change is required.

I tell you that the instructions are the failure, not you!  Come to Me!  My burden is easy and light!  I know you and what will work for your health and well-being.  Let me help you renew your strength and mount up as if on the wings of eagles!

Let Me remind you of My word that you are redeemed from the curse of the law from which all disease comes.  Let Me remind you no one know you like Me, Loved One.

Let Me help you with the strength and persistence and consistency for change.  For I am gentle and loving and not of the world.  Let Me help you really change for good!

You are not a failure! The instructions are!

See that there?  You thought it was you yet it was an erroneous way to do things.  You would never succeed at something that was built to fail!

You are built to succeed and in this season, places you thought you were doomed to fail, doomed at the onset, success far from you, I will begin to show you new correct ways to succeed!

You were built for success!  Don’t forget that!  When you don’t succeed, look for different processes, listen to me for different processes and write them down!  For if you need these successes surely there are others that need them as well.

You are not a failure!  The instructions are!  look to Me and you will succeed in everything you set your hand to!

Hang on There Lady!

You have said, “But Lord!  Everything is still going wrong!” “Hang on there lady!,” I heard.

My promises shall come to pass.  They have still been working.  You are exiting a long season of delay, a long season of drought, a long season of no payouts, a long season of no recompense, says the Lord.

Hang on a little longer.

I see a vision of being buried from heaven by all those backed up promises, blessings, healings and whatever else!

You will be compensated for your agony, your sickness, your poverty, your broken promises, your severed relationships.  As the enemy has overplayed his hand, so will I towards you.  He will rue the day he ever set out to harm you.  For the extent that the enemy came against you. I shall double that and more!  For that which you have lost is that which you will gain and more.  And it will not take an unidentified amount of time!  Look for it!  Look for your checks in the mail!

Your Spirit Communes with Me

Today, it is the first day of the rest of your life.  It is indeed a new day.  A day you can leave regrets behind.  A day that you can decide to move forward.  A day that can be different.

I have placed within you the ability to grow and change.  You will flourish, your spirit will flourish with growing.  It is what it desires.  Your spirit knows where you are going.  Your spirit knows your goals.  Your spirit communes with Me.  Yield to your spirit more often and watch the growth happen!

Change is not hard.  Change is a decision.  Decide to change.  Decide to live by the spirit.  It cannot harm you!  Only help!  The world demands soulish change.  The world whips you and degrades you and shames you into change.  That is not how it works in the spirit!  In the spirit, there is desire, a prize!  Go with your spirit today and every day from this day forward.  Let our spirits link and commune together!

I AM the Only Savior of the World!

There has been a heaviness with My empathetic ones.  Ones that feel the emotions and the pain of others.  It has been a rough season for you! But well know, I AM the only Savior of the world!  You are not!  The government is on My shoulders. Not yours!  The burdens are Mine!  Not yours!

Am I not the One who gives beauty for ashes?  Am I not the One who turned adverse circumstances into something you can gain from?  So I shall deal with the pains of this world.  Believe in me, in what I am able to do.  Know that I am working.  Know that you are a partner with Me.

Come away and refresh yourself.  Take care that your burdens of another do not take over your joy and your strength!  Only do what I have you do and leave the rest to Me!

This will be a long fruitful season.  Learn how to rest and worship in war, in a new way.  Make My presence a priority and come up for air more often loves!

 

Take heart, take heed! My organization is coming!

I would say to you today that even though things are being tossed to and fro and life has been like it’s been thrown in a blender, take heart!  Take heed!  Don’t you know I am in control?

Watch all around you what I am doing.  When you clean your house, when you clean your basement, how about your garage!  Doesn’t it look like a mess before it’s clean and organized?  You may even get yelled at by your spouse for creating such a mess!  It’s even painful to look at for you!

And even cleaning that garage I have to move and remove things.  Stuff will be thrown out.  Obviously bad stuff but also stuff that is tired and over with.  It’s outlived its usefulness.  It’s still good but it’s not for you.  Those things have to go!  And those favorite things that have parts missing, broken handles, things from the past, those are going too!

Take heart, take heed!  My organization is coming!  Only after I have cleaned out!
