The EIGHTH Day 2

When it is NOT your turn to move...

When It's NOT Your Turn To Move... #BloggingontheGO Romans 15:5-6 NIV May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Greetings! BlogFam, for the last month or so I have been writing about transition, changing, moving on, and saying goodbye. However, I do realize that there are some of you who feel somewhat disconnected from the conversation simply because it is not your turn to move. You are excited about the shifts in the lives of your friends. You are not jealous. You want to see them do well. However you are not moving yourself. You are not moving because perhaps you are awaiting that final word of confirmation or perhaps you are resolutely clear that you are already exactly where you need to be and until your assignment is complete in that place and with those people, you are being still. Today, my friends, will you indulge me and allow this word to minister to those whose assignment is to be still? PLEASE DO NOT BELIEVE THE HYPE!!! Moving On is not all that some of those around you have made it appear to be... especially for those who are moving out of order, out of turn, out of line, out of the timing of God. And those who are moving need the support and love and patience of those who remain still. It is not a dishonorable position for one to remain... particularly if you know that this is where the Lord would have you to serve at this juncture. If you are choosing to remain stable, still, set in the place where God has you in a season that is not yet over, then KEEP STANDING!!! Your prayerful presence is a testimony of our text on today... Romans 15:5-6 NIV May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. In other words... BlogFam, your stability in the midst of the movement of those around you is a witness that God is able to help you to endure whatever you face right where you are as well as encourage you, uplift you, strengthen you, and give you the peace of mind to remain. Just because there is movement around you and seemingly without you, check again. Look in the mirror. Go back to your prayer closet. Get in tune with the Holy Spirit. The movement in your life may not be the kind that warrants a going away celebration or a moving truck or a new place to live, work, or play. God moves us in so many ways including ways that keep us exactly in the same space and place where we have been. And your ability to just be still in obedience to the One who set you there in the first place has been God's creative way to bless those around you who have no idea where they will land when all their moving halts. And since God has already given you endurance and encouragement, you are now being summoned in this hour to share the same with those who are moving around. It may not be your turn to move but it is your time to remain as a stabilizing presence by the power of God that looks with compassion upon those whose life is shifting for good....or for bad. It is your witness to them about the keeping power of God that will bring the shifting and the standing together so that with one mind and one voice you all may together glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. My friends, do not dismiss this season of stillness and stability and stick-to-it-ness as a time that you are being left out or forgotten or weak. No! If you are in a place where peace reigns in your heart and you know you were set in this particular situation for a reason, a divine purpose and all apart of God's miraculous plan, BE STILL. IT IS NOT YOUR TURN TO MOVE! It is your turn to be a witness to all who are moving all around you. It is your turn to allow our God to show them through your life that God will help you to endure, to hold out, to keep pressing on. It is your turn to speak words of life and encouragement to remind them that God truly is in the mix of it all. It is your turn to remember the times you have moved in your own life and to be a resource, a companion, a prayer warrior, and a friend in the same spirit that you once received. It may not be your turn to move but it is your turn to just be still in the mind of Christ and... May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. AMEN. God Loves You and I Do Too!!! Delesslyn FOLLOW @AudraSunshine or @Spiritedconcept

The Privileges of being DEVOTED to God - Psalm 91:14-16


The Privileges of being DEVOTED to God
Psalms 91:14-16 CEB
God says,
"Because you are devoted to me,
I’ll rescue you.
I’ll protect you
because you know my name.
Whenever you cry out to me,
I’ll answer.
I’ll be with you in troubling times.
I’ll save you and glorify you.
I’ll fill you full with old age.
I’ll show you my salvation."


Greetings!
BlogFam, I have a question that only you can answer. ARE YOU DEVOTED TO GOD?The answer is either yes or no.  And it is so important that you have an answer to my question.

High Rise Living - Psalm 91:9-13

HIGH RISE LIVING
Psalm 91: 9-13

Because you’ve made the Lord my refuge,
    the Most High, your place of residence—
        no evil will happen to you;
        no disease will come close to your tent.
Because he will order his messengers to help you,
    to protect you wherever you go.
They will carry you with their own hands
    so you don’t bruise your foot on a stone.

THAT Will NOT Come Nigh Unto Me! Psalm 91:5-8

#BloggingOnTheGo THAT Will NOT Come Nigh Unto Me! Psalms 91:5-8 CEB Greetings! BlogFam, THANK YOU for your patience this past week! I did make it successfully to my 200th day of blogging on the last Sunday of June 2012 and due to other professional and academic writing obligations I took a quick break and I am back with a renewed commitment to the task, the call, and my divine assignment to inspire others through my writing. I will continue through Psalm 91 and we will prayerfully discern where the Spirit will lead us next. PSALM 91:5-8 Don’t be afraid of terrors at night, arrows that fly in daylight, or sickness that prowls in the dark, destruction that ravages at noontime. Even if one thousand people fall dead next to you, ten thousand right beside you— it won’t happen to you. Just look with your eyes, and you will see the wicked punished. BlogFam, I am not sure how you will take this statement but as a child of God, I truly believe that there are some things (and certain people) that will NOT come nigh me. You can call me naive. You can call me jaded. You can call me inexperienced. You can call me crazy! BUT I just believe with all my heart and in the depths of my soul, that there are some things that I will not have to deal with, struggle through, or stress over. And I believe this to be true for all of my fellow sisters and brothers in Christ. There are some things that will NOT come nigh unto us simply because we are in relationship with the Lord God Almighty. Now I know that some of you want a list naming everything that I am referring to. I understand that. But I do not have one to give you. This is what I do know about THAT .... THAT is that. THAT is anything and everything, anyone and everyone that the Lord God did not, has not, will not ordain, correct, sustain, prosper for MY life. YES, THAT includes the good and the bad, the happy and the sad, the mountains high and the valleys low, the rivers wide and the creeks shallow. There are certain things and people that I will NOT have to face! So, BlogFam, Don’t be afraid of terrors at night, arrows that fly in daylight, or sickness that prowls in the dark, destruction that ravages at noontime. Even if one thousand people fall dead next to you, ten thousand right beside you— it won’t happen to you. Just look with your eyes, and you will see the wicked punished. This is the promise of the Lord! I know that there are probably some things and people that are in your life today to which you wish you could have avoided, averted, or arranged in such a way that would keep you from dealing with all the stuff you are dealing with right now. I know and I have been there and done THAT. AND I made it through! HALLELUJAH! I made it through. I may not have known what hit me at the time but I made it through. I may have cried my eyeballs out and had some sleepless nights but I made it through. I may have seemed like I was not acting like myself, but I made it through. AND because I made it through, I can testify... As a child of God, I truly believe that there are some things (and certain people) that will NOT come nigh me!!! And if THAT whoever or whatever comes, God is WILLING and God is ABLE to KEEP ME in sickness and in health, in construction and devastation, in curiosities and atrocities, at night and in the day, when I'm alone or in a crowd, GOD IS ABLE to do whatever God needs to do in me, around me, and through me in order to keep His word. For THIS is the Word of the Lord... Psalms 91:5-8 CEB Don’t be afraid of terrors at night, arrows that fly in daylight, or sickness that prowls in the dark, destruction that ravages at noontime. Even if one thousand people fall dead next to you, ten thousand right beside you— it won’t happen to you. Just look with your eyes, and you will see the wicked punished. TGBTG!
