Ear the Heart

I remember one year at a Texas District Youth Camp Meeting, the speaker asked for volunteers to play the instruments on the platform.

From the congregation of quickly raised hands, he selected one volunteer for each instrument.
Not one of them had ever played an instrument before.
He said on the count of three for everyone to start playing.
I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out; I knew one thing, it could only go one way or the other.
It could’ve been exceptionally miraculously beautiful, or absolutely horrendously awful!

Or so I thought😉
On the count of three,  everyone started playing their instruments.
To my ears, it was absolutely awful, but at the very second they begin playing, I experienced something amazing that had never happened to me before.

it was like I was being refilled with the Holy Ghost ….. and I heard God speak “No matter what anybody says, it will always be praise to Me.”
We hear with the natural ear, and it is very much different from what God hears. He hears the intents our hearts.


He IS an awesome God!!!
What is the intent of your heart speaking today?

People Pleaser

People pleaser:

How silly we must look to God trying to make everyone happy.
We were made to glorify God… not people.

Galatians 1:10 Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.

When we set out to please God… he gets all the glory.
Just a thought; Couldn’t the same be said trying to please man?

Already Paid

Unforgiveness is holding the offender liable for an offense… AKA debt.

When we harbor unforgiveness, we are holding them responsible for a debt that they cannot pay. A debt that Jesus already paid in full.

When we overlook the price He paid and put our offender on the cross; our actions say the price He paid was insufficient.

My friend, you cannot collect on a debt that has already been paid. 

Take your offender off the cross and give thanks for our Fathers ultimate sacrifice. The sacrifice that gives you freedom. 

Pray for the offender and move on. You’ll find traveling your journey will be much easier.

I Am Who I Choose To Be

13536065_475030246021084_660982083_n

I choose to be:
better, and not bitter, joyful and not depressed.

I choose to live in freedom, over captivity

I choose to treat others with kindness rather than meanness regardless of how others treat me.

I choose to speak with love and gentleness regardless of how my day is going.

How I treat others is not to be predicated on internal or external factors, but it is a reflection of who I am within.

I am who I choose to be.

Prophesied Healing

LOOK WHAT THE LORD HAS DONE!!

Many know of my (Paula) journey dealing with my thyroid and my immune system’s mission to kill me.

……. Somewhere in the early 90’s, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. After 20 years of taking thyroid medication, (as well as 20 other prescriptions for various ailments) my routine labs began to come back abnormal. (abnormal for someone on thyroid medication) Shortly after that a lump was found on the left side and within two months that side of my thyroid “had” to be removed. It was benign.

Five days post-op my immune system came back with a vengeance,  but I was the victim. It was out to destroy me by taking out the rest of my thyroid aka autoimmune disorder.

Years before, on July 31, 2002, I received a “promise” from GOD through the mouth of Brother Charles Pierce He prayed for me, and I wrote it down. I didn’t realize HOW IMPORTANT this promise would be till I was five days post op… 11 years later.

Thyroid healed

Since the partial thyroidectomy, I have suffered many health issues. From my heart, hormones, etc. and has crossed into the kidneys and so forth. I would spend days in bed unable to participate in basic day to day things of life.

On more than one occasion I even prayed for God to just “take me” home. If this was the quality of life I was going to have to endure the rest of my days here on earth… to please take me. I didn’t want this; I wanted a “full” healthy life that I could enjoy. (But I was losing hope…. even with the PROMISE)

When GOD gives you a promise… you best hold onto it. It is because HE knows you “will” need it.

Holding onto that promise, I received prayer on more than one occasion. The most recent were from Brother Simons. This was the last time, and it was the only time I “really” understood the scripture Mark 5:34 in a revolutionary way.

I said all this to say…. IT HAS HAPPENED.

I have been MEDICATION FREE since August 01, 2015!!!

GOD HEALED MY THYROID! 

I am functioning better than I have in almost 20 years.
I have energy, my emotions feel stable, I don’t tire as quickly as I used to.
I cannot tell you how much better…. more alive I feel. I forgot how it felt to be able just to get out and shop, walk around a store for pleasure.

Labs

I AM HEALED!!!

Thank you to ALL my brothers and sisters who have obeyed God and those who have prayed for me in this situation….. but most of all, I give THANKS TO GOD!!!

Brothers and sisters HOLD on to your promise. It’s coming!

 

The Wounded Soldier

In prayer today, I saw a great battlefield.

A wounded soldier was being carried to safety by his comrade.

I thought…

“Solders don’t leave other soldiers wounded on the battlefield. .. they carry them to safety.”

My heart was stirred and filled with sadness as a reflected over the previous recent years.

After being terribly spiritually wounded in 2012, I had not one saint willing to carry me to safety…. that I’m aware of.
With God’s help, I made it to safety, found assistance caring for my wounds and I have made a full recovery.

This particular season in my life showed me the extreme importance of intercessory prayer and our obligation.

Please remember the wounded and hurting. They may be the one who later brings you to safety or covers you in prayer as you help another.

It is a battlefield out there, someone needs you. The question is, who are you interceding for?

 

 

The Whole Package

I was attracted to my spouse for who he was.
Perfections and imperfections…. together.

John and I
The strong manly things and the weird little annoying things he does that has me question his sanity. 🙂

All this made up the whole package.

I didn’t get to pick and choose what parts of him I wanted to love or not because they were not inseparable from him.

I didn’t fall in love with him for who I could make him…
but for who he was.

We all are on a journey, one I chose to walk “with” him.

When we are only looking at our spouse’s faults, we cannot see their accomplishments. Magnifying his imperfections will prevent you from seeing him as God sees him. It can also leave you feeling hopeless and stuck.

Reflect back on the things that you first fell in love with about him.
Thank God for him and for loving you through him.

Set “belittling” aside for it tears down the man you fell in love with and prevents him from becoming the man God has meant for him to be.

Build up your spouse with words of kindness.
Strengthen him with words of encouragement.
Put on peace and be kind to him.
Speak life into your marriage and into your husband’s heart.

Remember, your both on a journey that you both chose to walk together…. enjoy it 🙂
