Vison...One Bumpy Ride

Joseph, Mr "Coat of Many Colors" himself, had a number of dreams that spoke of what God had planed for him many years latter. It was the telling of those dreams that literally set in motion that very plan. Joseph told his brothers, in detail, of his visions, and it provoked Joseph's brothers to take drastic measures. (We all know the story). Even Joseph had no ideal the plan that God had laid out. He had no ideal that his brothers would through him into a pit, fake his death, and sell him into slavery. All he really had was a vision that his brothers would one day bow before him. The events that took place in his life where filled with ups and downs; however, it was every single up and every single down in Joseph's life that set the field, if you will, for the next step in God's plan for him. Of course we all know that the day came that Joseph's brother's did in fact bow before him.

I find myself in a similar experance as Joseph. All I really know at this point in my life is that I had a vision. A vision of the most beautiful thing my eyes had ever seen. This vision has utterly changed everything I am. This glimpse into God's plan has driven my heart into a complete surrendering of everything I once thought, and it has birthed in me a zeal I had never known. I, like Joseph, am going through many ups and downs. My faith is being tried on every hand it seems. I shared my vision with brothers, and I to feel I to have been thrown into a pit. I do what I believe God is doing. I have traveled thousands of miles to be where I am right now because I believe in this vision. All I have is faith, and, believe me friends, in the past few weeks that faith has weakened. I am left with doubt once again. I know I know...I am pathetic. All I know at this point is I still have this vision that God has given me. I must look beyond what I see with my eyes and feel in my flesh, and put my trust fully in the One that has given such vision. I am here in Kentucky because I am convinced God has led me here. Even if everything is not going the way I seen it, I must trust. I one of Joseph's dreams he had bails of wheat, or something of the sort, bow to him. It did not end up that way. The bales where in fact his brothers. I am not saying anyone will bow to me, I am merely saying that God will work out His plan His way. I must always remember that even if I am being accused, as Pottifer's wife, and thrown into prison. If brothers don't walk with me or I can't get a job... God has a plan. I don't know what tomorrow holds, but I still know Who holds tomorrow.

As always...still thinking. God bless!

Walk In The Spirit Challenge

I would like to challenge all the readers to walk in the Spirit of God an entire day. Wake up in the morning and pray..."God, please help me to walk in complete obedience to you today. Help me to see You in every single thing I do. Help me to look for you on my drive to work/school etc. Help me to see and hear you in every person I come into contact with today. If you have something for me to learn Lord I will learn it. If you have something for me to do Lord I will do it. This day, and every moment in it belongs to You my Father...amen".

This will be no easy task as we are so used to walking in the normal every day jive of our every day lives, but I want to encourage you to keep on. Give your every thought to the Lord for an entire day. When you catch yourself drifting away, catch yourself, repent, then continue on. Even when your at work and your attention is supposed to be focused on that work, give it to the Lord. Have a song of praise in your heart to sing to Him throughout the day. Even in the most rudest person you meet that day, look for what God is saying to you. You never know, He may show you that your the same way. Do this as an experiment for one day, and see what God will do.

This is how the Children of God is to live every day, but we have so long missed Him. Remember, God Himself lives inside of everyone of His Children. We can't accomplish such a task without Him, for there is absolutely nothing about us that can live such a life. We are flesh, and we live carnally because we are carnal. But believe and trust in the Christ that is in us. I promise, when you begin to take on such a task as to believe and walk in this way, it will forever change how you view life.

I don't know, you know me...I am just thinking :) and believing!
