~No ... I just need a book!~

So my sister in law is enjoying the joys of potty training. She told me that the other day Jr was in the bathroom and he started yelling... Mama!...Mama! Just a minute Jr I’m on my way. Upon entering the bathroom doorway, Jr holds up his two hands in the universal "stop" motion and states. I’m not done, I just need a book!
So I’m driving down the road today and start giggling thinking about his story. And I can’t help but think, yup sometimes I really don’t need help, I just need a book. So instead of calling out to others for help I think I need to spend more time this up coming days and weeks reading His story. Have a blessed day!

~Just passing through~

I received my autographed copy of this book in the mail today. How exciting. When I opened the front cover to begin reading I was struck by the comment... To my dad... I hope people see some of you in me...
For most of this year I’ve been consumed with the desire for people to see more of my heavenly father in me!! Now that they’ve given my earthy father very little hope of recovery I too want people to see a little of him in me. It brought home the fact that we are not alone in our walks, and our situations are not unique to us. What makes us unique is how we take the adversity, or the joy and apply it to our lives. Its how we choose to walk it out. What we choose to show a reflection of is what we hold dearest. The ones we think are cool we immolate. The styles we see on others that we love we adopt. I want to find God cool! LOL I want copy His style and mannerisms. I want to see a reflection of Him in my mirror, and feel him in my marrow. I want to breathe the breath that He has, and flow in grace and mercy with the favor of the Lord!
Thank you Jason for the book. May God bless you in all that you do!

~Its by what authority?~

Last night in church we were continuing our study on the gifts of the spirit... The associate pastor was using scripture from Deuteronomy 18:22. He reads through the scripture and like most of my blogs it hits me... So Janet, what authority did use to question those that you have no spiritual authority in their lives? (It was like my drill sargent screaming in my face lol) I really believe that in this battle of life we are truly in "Gods Army"...(Be all that you can be... fight the good fight...submit yourself under the authority...) And in the army there are ranks. You have your place in line, and you don’t break rank.
I had a cute cat once named Spencer. Spence was a humane society rescue, and he was 100% completely crazy. He would wait until you were in bed, run down the hallway so fast that his paw steps sounded like thunder coming, jump up in the bed, bite your big toe and then run off again. If you tried to stop his nightly routine he would wait until you were asleep. So it was without much hesitation that I let that "curious cat" dart for the door every time it was open to view the outside world. He was declawed and defenseless out there but he didn’t care. After about 6 months the nightly toe bitting stopped and Spence got really fat and seamed to be enjoying living with us. His new "routine" was to come lick your ears when you were trying to read. Chance and I fell in love with him. One morning I opened the door and out he darted never to return. The neighbors dog had the same idea that AM and it didn’t end well for Spencer.
I’ve heard it said that "familiarity breeds contempt" and in my case I believe it to be true. I think that I have a since of curiosity that led me to question something that I have no spiritual authority in. For that I sincerely (with the truest meaning of that word) apologize to the members of Jars of Clay, Third Day, and it’s moderating team.

~Are you going to be there tomorrow?~

Mom just called, another surgery tomorrow. Are you going to be there? I will stop by but I can’t get the day off of work. I will definitely be there tomorrow night when he comes home... Need some chicken for supper?

Ever notice how the ordinary things of life seam so silly when faced with the mountains? The worship freq’s are with me. They’re feeling it too. The stirring in the atmosphere of God. The rising up all around... the anthem of the Lords resound...and together we sing...everyone sings... through the good times through the bad. Through the rain because of the reign! I know without a doubt that nothing but the will of God can come. But I want to get to the place in my life that I’m so hid in Christ that like Peter even my shadow passing by (Acts 5:15) will cause the favor of God that lives through me to bless others... and that they may not even know it was me BUT GOD! There is a shadow of heavenly things (Hebrews 8:5) that I want to flow through me!... Before I lay down this body I will be so hid in Christ! I will know and see and be transformed from who I am to what HE IS! I will be ye holy!

~Where there is no vision...~

My thoughts have not stopped turning re: the frequency of God and accurately hearing what He is saying at all times... I’ve reread my own blog on the frequency and meditated on what He is saying to me. Every idle thought has been back to God. Then today in church the associate pastor was preaching from Proverbs 29:18. From the amplified "Where there is no vision [no redemptive revelation of God], the people perish; but he who keeps the law [of God, which includes that of man]– blessed (happy, fortunate, and enviable) is he. The sermon when on in the direction of the manner that you see God has to be with a clear vision, focus and then man will see the plan of God unfold before He does it. My mind when to the frequency of God... the very current of electricity that causes my heart to beat... Not how often He frequents, but the current of His frequency! The power to be all I need to be in Christ is running through that frequency and I know its there. I can feel it. I’ve never in my life been more aware that, not only is God in control and nothing but the will of God can come for me and my life, but His current is moving in me. But I need to see His vision... I need it in my home. I need it in my job, my life, my love, my pursuit of happiness! My very breath needs to see/feel/know the vision that God has over me.
