Thankful Life - August 26, 2016



I am really trying to focus on the right thing.

I have a follow up Lyme appointment next week - and essentially symptoms have come back. I started treatment 17 months ago (orals: Rx, herbals and homeopathic). I had several months where improvement was apparent. As I changed medications for the 6th time because of adverse reactions (Rocephin shots), I now find my body is not progressing the way I "thought" it would during this time of treatment. I can get completely discouraged, as can we all.... OR I CAN GET COMPLETELY ENGAGED with the healing that our Father has already provided me... praise, worship and thanksgiving.

Here's how good the LORD has been. As I begin to crumble in my moments of weakness, He reminds me what my mission is - pray for others, while trusting His plan AND allow Jesus to stand in the gap (every gap). It sounds so simple, and agreeably, IT IS NOT, but it truly is. I have many moments of crumbling, stumbling and despair, but over the years (as I get closer to Him), they are less and less.... and I can see these as fleeting moments, rather than lingering.
My prayer for all of us is that we can see despair fleet, and His presence linger.
I thought I would share some an older article, from 2012.

Thankful Life - August 25, 2016


We grow with the Holy Spirit working in us... Nothing less for a child of God will do!

"Watch over your heart with all diligence,
For from it flow the springs of life." ~ Proverbs 4:23 (AMP)

Your mind changes your brain... with God as the source, live it out.

Process life from your thoughts and eliminate death.

Keeping my eyes on the LORD.
The only way to truly want what is best for me is to know the Father intimately through getting into the Word daily. It's only then can I know what the best of me is.

"22-24 But you have learned nothing like that from Christ, if you have really heard his voice and understood the truth that he has taught you. No, what you learned was to fling off the dirty clothes of the old way of living, which were rotted through and through with lust’s illusions, and, with yourselves mentally and spiritually re-made, to put on the clean fresh clothes of the new life which was made by God’s design for righteousness and the holiness which is no illusion.

25 Finish, then, with lying and tell your neighbour the truth. For we are not separate units but intimately related to each other in Christ.

26-27 If you are angry, be sure that it is not out of wounded pride or bad temper. Never go to bed angry—don’t give the devil that sort of foothold.

The new life means positive good
28 If you used to be a thief you must not only give up stealing, but you must learn to make an honest living, so that you may be able to give to those in need.

29 Let there be no more foul language, but good words instead—words suitable for the occasion, which God can use to help other people.

30 Never hurt the Holy Spirit. He is, remember, the personal pledge of your eventual full redemption.
31-32 Let there be no more resentment, no more anger or temper, no more violent self-assertiveness, no more slander and no more malicious remarks, Be kind to each other, be understanding. Be as ready to forgive others as God for Christ’s sake has forgiven you." Ephesians 4:22-32 (J.B. Phillips New Testament)
