Adventure Awaits

I woke up last Sunday morning, just as I do everyday, with the sound of a thousand tiny shrieks of joy coming from my three year old. “Mommy, get up! Mommy wake up! I want to play dress up.” I’m not exactly sure how often I sleep in anymore, it’s so rare that today 9:30 felt like noon…

I reached over, grabbed my phone and saw a text from a long-time friend saying that she was driving through Nashville on her way to Florida. As it turned out, later that evening I found myself in her car on my way to Florida as well.

Was this planned? No.

Had I thought this through, and specifically allotted three days of my week for rejuvenation? Not exactly.

So why am I writing a blog post about this? Because there is a principle, we type A-over planning-calendar loving people must learn to embrace…

Leave enough room for the SPONTANEOUS, it’s in those suddenly and unexpected moments you will find joy!

In less than 2 weeks I will be boarding a plane with my husband and 2 kids to fly across the Atlantic and live as Missionaries in England for 3 months. I have labored over the details of this adventure, tirelessly ensuring personal things will be taken care of before we depart and arrangements are on point for when we arrive.

Often times we can get so caught up in the planning and preparing, that we forget to pause and embrace the divine moments God intended for us to live in. I encourage you today, if you’re like me and find an oh-so-glorious love in the details of properly executing your To-Do List and crossing each detail off with a fine-tip sharpie… stop for just a moment.

You may not be breathing in the salty fresh ocean air that wafts over you as you lay in the warm sun on this Florida beach… but wherever you are, embrace the now. Breathe deep. Live in that moment God has placed you in. Lift your head, look around at those he has placed in your life and take time for these intentional relationships.

And please… always remember to use pencil when marking your calendar.

Aligning Yourself to the Sound of Heaven

Revelation 4:3-8 (AMP) boldly declares,

“And He Who sat there appeared like [the crystalline brightness of] jasper and [the fiery] sardius, and encircling the throne there was a halo that looked like [a rainbow of] emerald. Twenty-four other thrones surrounded the throne, and seated on these thrones were twenty-four elders ([b]the members of the heavenly Sanhedrin), arrayed in white clothing, with crowns of gold upon their heads.

Out from the throne came flashes of lightning and rumblings and peals of thunder, and in front of the throne seven blazing torches burned, which are the seven Spirits of God [[c]the sevenfold Holy Spirit];

And in front of the throne there was also what looked like a transparent glassy sea, as if of crystal. And around the throne, in the center at each side of the throne, were four living creatures (beings) who were full of eyes in front and behind [with intelligence as to what is before and at the rear of them].

The first living creature (being) was like a lion, the second living creature like an ox, the third living creature had the face of a man, and the fourth living creature [was] like a flying eagle.

And the four living creatures, individually having six wings, were full of eyes all over and within [underneath their wings]; and day and night they never stop saying, Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty (Omnipotent), Who was and Who is and Who is to come.”

There is a sound, a vibration, a frequency that emanates from the Heavens and permeates the Earthly like waves that crash upon the coastal shore. It is the avenue in which the supernatural becomes natural. The transient link between two worlds, merging them into one, even if for but a moment.

In my previous article I wrote about how Christ is the light of men and at the sub-atomic level in the molecules of man is congealed light. These molecules, atoms, protons, neutrons, etc. all vibrate and emit frequencies. So how do you learn to operate at a higher, heavenly frequency? How do you align yourself to Heaven’s sound? The answer is simple. Worship.

One key, that is overlooked by some, is purely worship. The Four Living Creatures never stop crying, “Holy, Holy, Holy”. The Elders around the throne continuously throw themselves down in worship and declare, “Worthy are You, our Lord and God, to receive the glory and the honor and dominion, for You created all things; by Your will they were [brought into being] and were created.” When you open your mouth in praise and declare the glory of God, you in turn create or ‘frame-up’ the atmosphere of worship and out of this place comes the glory realm.

I heard a preacher say it like this, “You praise until the spirit of worship comes, and then you worship until the glory comes then speak out of that glory.” It is a tangible presence, a weighty realm whose attributes can be felt. This is where the lightings and the thunders and the roars of many waters release from. Where the supernatural manifestations of God pierce through our natural dimensions and things which were not, become as though they are. Where the unseen realm produces a visible substance that points to His wondrous works and His glorious goodness.

So tonight, remember the key for your victory in accessing and aligning yourself to Heaven’s frequency is found in the depths of your worship of the Living God. If you desire His glory to manifest in your personal life, and you are asking Him for signs, miracles, and wonders… take it up higher, press in a little longer and you will feel the shift! You were created as His vessel of honor to display his glorious wonders in the Earth, so let your light shine!

Frequency of Heaven

You have authority over whatever comes into your world. Anything that makes contact with your sphere of influence, you have the jurisdiction to accept or eradicate. Whether intentional or by accident the thing that is trying to latch on to you that is of a lower frequency, shake it off.

Like the Apostle Paul (or Taylor Swift), who shook off the snake as it bit him (Acts 28)… You too can loose yourself from what appears to be a deadly poisonous attack. It is an illusion and it’s vibrations can’t penetrate the divine light of Christ that dwells within you.

light-burstJohn 1:1-5 (Amplified) declares, “In the beginning [before all time] was the Word ([a]Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God [b]Himself. He was present originally with God. All things were made and came into existence through Him; and without Him was not even one thing made that has come into being. In Him was Life, and the Life was the Light of men. And the Light shines on in the darkness, for the darkness has never overpowered it [put it out or absorbed it or appropriated it, and is unreceptive to it].” 

Christ’s light is the vibration that resonates at the very core of our molecular structure. Scientist have found deep within the atom’s nucleus, beyond the protons and neutrons is congealed light. When you align yourself to Heaven’s sound, even the atoms that make up your physical body will begin to vibrate at a higher frequency. Your circumstances will have no choice but to respond and the weight of this God-given authority will saturate each word that proceeds from your mouth. You will truly ‘frame up’ or create the framework for your world with your words.

So don’t let the illusions dictate your demeanor. Tonight, take dominion over the peace in your home, the health of your children, and the love in your marriage. Reign in this life!

A Proverbs 31 Woman

Y’all… I knew I should have been a Fashion Designer! Now I have some scripture on it…

fashion

“She makes her own clothing,
    and dresses in colorful linens and silks.
Her husband is greatly respected
    when he deliberates with the city fathers.
She designs gowns and sells them,
    brings the sweaters she knits to the dress shops.
Her clothes are well-made and elegant,
    and she always faces tomorrow with a smile.
When she speaks she has something worthwhile to say,
    and she always says it kindly.
She keeps an eye on everyone in her household,
    and keeps them all busy and productive.
Her children respect and bless her;
    her husband joins in with words of praise:
“Many women have done wonderful things,
    but you’ve outclassed them all!”
Charm can mislead and beauty soon fades.
    The woman to be admired and praised
    is the woman who lives in the Fear-of-God.
Give her everything she deserves!
    Festoon her life with praises!”

Proverbs 31: 22-31 (MSG)
