"The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion — to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair." ~ from ISAIAH 61 Bible verse for this Blog

W.O.W. ~ "... In Our Struggle"

[image credit: Nancy McGuirk]

"Turn down the volume of the world and listen for the

WHISPER OF GOD"

... that's what I've been doing and look forward to each ...

Whisper On Weds.

and my emails that come from LOOP or The Passion Translation
to see which one, I will take with me this

Walk On Weds.

sometimes I try both and other times
just the special 

WHISPER

I need that I hope speaks to you

there is a sweet breeze
outside this day
so
I pray that the Holy Spirit helps you

HEAR HIS WHISPER

"I love you even in your struggle"

"I love you in your struggle and weakness. While you are still far off, I run to you in restoration. While you are still speaking your words of repentance, I am forgiving you. While you are pondering your future, I have gone before you to open up the way. While you are asleep, I place My grace over you. While you hope that your family is healed, I am at work in hearts to make you whole.

Within you is a deep need. That need is for My grace and mercy. More than a Companion to you, I will be Strength and Grace in your every moment. Not one thing will keep Me from cleansing you and empowering you in My grace. I will use you even in your weakness to bring healing to your family. Look to Me and hope in Me. Place all your expectations in Me and I will never disappoint you. Do not expect your family to change, but expect Me to change your heart and then I will change your family and bring them to Me.

Every time you feel this deep need, receive more of My grace. Like a river that always seeks the lowest place, My grace runs down into the deepest need of your heart and fills it to overflowing. Soon you will leap over every way and run victoriously through the ranks of the enemy's forces that have come against you.

I will train you in My grace to win every battle and defeat the discouragement that has sought to muffle your voice. You will rise and run into My grace and find all that you need, for I am the Extravagant Father who understands you fully. So come and expect Me, the Faithful One, to work through you to change the world around you.
Brian Simmons and Your TPT Team

{you too can enjoy all 52 of these devotions in this book or through biweekly emails from 
The Passion TranslationBroad Street Publishing Group}


2 Timothy 1:12 
The Passion Translation

"The confidence of my calling enables me to overcome every difficulty without shame, for I have an intimate revelation of this God. And my faith in Him convinces me that He is more than able to keep all that I’ve placed in His hands safe and secure until the fullness of His appearing."

{this one takes the previous quote one step beyond}

Of course, I have much more of my own to share about how this one impacted me the day that I received it and the thoughts that were whirling around in my head and how each morsel touched me, yet I "pause" and really fight "to be still" so that what God breathes to you in this "whisper" is not at all impeded by my own words and how I experience God's timing and this word whispered by TPT. Since I am so blessed to have this entire book of 52 "whispers", I might have read this or not yet, however, when it is chosen and sent by TPT on a given date, well, just let me reiterate that it's God's perfect timing for me. So thankful for this and how God loves us in our struggles and weaknesses and He knows each one even before we do, which always leaves me - aMazed


* added note - just as I finished this and went to the first image's linked site
I read Nancy's blog for that day
which goes with this perfectly
- of course, only God :)
He's in every detail!

JCBC ~ 1

Discussion #1

"PEACE IN THE WHIRLWIND"
{it's the January 3rd devotional entry from "Jesus Calling"}

I have been in some "whirlwinds" in my lifetime but I can't recall much peace in those times. In fact, the mere mention of "whirlwind" to me, connotes anything but peaceful - it's more like everything being twisted and turned upside down; a stirring and sometimes whiplashes of wave after wave of ... 'messes', problems, situations whirring around ... yet God's Word speaks to us of remaining at peace ... calm ... Most often it is this peace we find in Jesus and with Jesus inside of us that sees us through each 'storm' and whirlwind, anchored in Jesus ... steering straight onward, holding on and trusting that we can get through anything with our focus on Him rather than the "whirl" or the "wind". Most often easier said than done. Don't let the situation take the wind out of your sails and send you whirling about, seek that internal peace knowing Jesus is our anchor and His Spirit is the wind beneath our feet that guides us beyond what we see or cannot yet see but simply believe. Read the reassurance Jesus speaks into us in Sarah's Jan. 3rd entry and the Scripture passages.

SCRIPTURE(S)

Psalm 31:19-20 (NASB) John 16:33 (AMP)

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS
for the comments

{I believe every discussion has 3 like these.}

"Please read the devotion (or listen if you have the Jesus Calling audio book) and related Scripture passage from "Jesus Calling" dated January 3, and then answer/discuss these questions:

1. You may find yourself in one or more multiple roles as a wife, mother, career person, caretaker, confidante—the list could go on. 
Are there times in your life when you feel burdened with the
many responsibilities that go along with these important roles? 
What are some of the ways in which you cope with this? 

2. Today’s reading advises us to “learn to hide in the secret of [God’s] presence, even as you carry out your duties in the world. (He) is both with you and within you.” As you carry out your many responsibilities  can you see the ways that God is working with you and in you to guide you each day?

3. It can be worrisome to juggle so many responsibilities, which can rob us of the peace of the presence of God. John 16:33 reminds us: “I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world”(AMP). Take a moment to think of the things that are troubling you as you go about your work, and imagine how God is walking with you and working in you to conquer each of these issues—keeping you from worry and harm and bringing you peace." from "Jesus Calling", Women's Discussion Guide

I am sharing these today, but cannot guarantee that I will be able to each time. So be sure to download the Women's Discussion Guide from "Jesus Calling" as I recommended in the "BIG ANNOUNCEMENT..." blog post {that I kept moving forward daily as a reminder so it now precedes this one}


[image credit]

Father,
Hide me in the secret of Your Presence.
Remind me often in the midst of the whirlwind of this
world's trials, tribulations, distress and frustration
to take courage and be confident, certain and undaunted
not giving in or giving up because 
Jesus overcame the world and conquered it for me
depriving any power of harming me.
Jesus is my Burden Bearer and my Constant Companion.
Thank You that I can release all my burdens and trust that
 You are with me. You are within me. You go before me.
You open the way, You make a way, You are the Way!
Refresh me in the Peace of Your Presence today
and Always ... in Jesus' name

MORE "LONGING IN ME" for SECURITY

Although the "Longing in Me" Online Study with Faith Gateway had their Wrap-up this past week and the final chapter of Sheila Walsh's study guide book was last week, her regular book with this title had more content and chapters. But somewhere throughout this "longing" study, I admitted to myself that I most definitely struggle with my security. Yes, I know I am secure in Christ Jesus but let's face it, I'm not living like I am. So I began this other reading plan when decided that I had a greater "longing" for security than I thought as I read this 12 day devotional from a book written by Anna Light - "In_security: Break Free from what holds you back" ... I think most of us deal with insecurity about something ... so maybe this You Version reading plan or this book is for you. Today, I have decided to share the last of the 12 day one provided at You Version although every one of them was invaluable to me. {I highly recommend}

640x360

John 8:36 ; 2 Corinthians 10:5; Ephesians 6:10-18
{I guess this fits with Session 2 of the "Longing in Me" to be protected}

as you'll see below in my personal 

"Freedom Fighter"

"People who are free draw others to themselves. They do not compete, compare, or control. When they are no longer bound by insecurities and lies, they are able to be fully present, care-free and joyful. That’s what we all want, isn't it, to be the person God created us to be, unhindered by the doubt, fear and insecurity that holds us back? As you continue to walk in freedom, that is exactly who you can become.

But finding freedom from insecurity is not a destination or an end goal, it is a continual process of taking our thoughts captive and making them obedient to Christ. Once you overcome one insecurity, there will be another to overcome. We will always be in need of God’s continual power and guidance to walk in freedom.

When you do find that freedom you will know it, you will feel it. But do not be surprised if you run into a few naysayers on this journey—people who are not yet free themselves. They are fighting their own battles and need your love, grace, and acceptance to start their own journey toward freedom.

None of us knows what someone else might go through to overcome their insecurities. No one but the seeker can appreciate the pain, tears, doubts, fears and questions that go into finding one's identity in Christ. It takes work, dedication, faith, and the encouragement of others. So, let’s make a commitment to always encourage one another toward that freedom. This Christian walk is truly a fight. We are all in battle with our common enemy. Let’s become freedom fighters—in our own lives—and in the lives of others.

When you make a commitment to find freedom you will discover a power rising from within like a spiritual adrenaline, giving you the strength to do what you never thought you could do on your own. Old fears will fall away like loosened chains. Apprehension will be swallowed up with faith. His love will free you and fuel your forward action. Nothing will be able to hold you back when you stay connected to His love. You will be motivated to lay down your insecurities and be free. There won't be room for fear and lies because you will fill your heart with truth. Fight for your freedom and you will live free. Free indeed."


The title alone convinced me that this was the right one to share
especially on this Memorial Weekend

"Freedom Fighter"


I actually had another episode to share from my trip home kinda related to this - freedom. It is not one that goes along with this devotional or this weekend, but one that threatened my personal freedom and had others concerned about me until they found out I was alright and it was nothing more than a cruel scam. This episode, however, makes one step back and appreciate our real freedom won for us. 
{I'm thinking it may not be such a good idea to write this publicly or maybe it is and will stop this from happening if someone (me) dares to publicly expose this so I am.}

On the day of my uncle's memorial service, both my home in MN and my rental home in MX received alarming calls. The ones in MN did not realize that the ones in MX were so alarming, except that there were many calls to confirm that I was OK, just to hear from me, which of course, I was totally unaware until late afternoon. The person taking care of my dogs in my rental home received several phone calls demanding a ransom payment for me. The first call, even had a woman screaming, crying and repeating his real name {How?} and then a man came on demanding the payment or I would be killed. My dog's caregiver tried to explain that there was no money or access to any possible from MX and that I was not related to this caregiver in any way. I already had told people that my spouse (like the American government and other nations) would not and could not pay ransom or afford to pay for such incidences or it would just increase the likelihood of more happening. yet this does not deter people from scamming. We have seen countless news' headlines and stories of this throughout the years and how individual families try to negotiate unsuccessfully and at times successfully.
Yet this is the time in which we live. When I called home in between the afternoon, I found out that I had many calls from MX but my husband was not quite sure about what or from whom, yet it had to do with the dog care giver, and the owner (I thought of my house but it was really a dear friend at the corner store who is the owner there and she was calling for my dog care giver to assure that I was alright). There were numerous calls and demands until she told this person just not to answer so when I tried calling - no answer, until I wrote her or called her (I can't remember). Not knowing and no answer at my MX house, I thought perhaps the owner had told my dog care giver that he could not stay there and my dogs were left alone. The real truth was even worse just because I did not know or call until late in the afternoon. But what a cruel interruption to my day and my time with my cousins and their families. I had to asked to be excused of joining them because I had to get home (yes, right in the middle of rush hour and much road construction detours-it was awful not knowing) and if you can imagine, even more alarming for them waiting for my call or just to hear my voice and know it was not me in any danger. 
But the insecurity in me, alerts that fear inside that it could have been or still might happen on my way back. So both sides urgently needed to HEAR that I was OK upon arrival. And, of course, I had to believe that God held me in His hand and was indeed my Protector. No matter what ... God would not choose this for my departure from here or have brought me here or so close to be returning as soon as possible if this was His plan. So question marks flash??? and once again, I see how the enemy loves to rattle everyone's faith and security with cruel, sickening crimes and calls of desperate people in a fallen world filled with more and more evil. 

Scams and the real thing need to be stopped! Crimes of kidnapping, murder and all the other evil have gotten way out of hand. People need to be prosecuted that commit such frauds and they need to be found out. 

I long to be found in_security of Jesus
but not this way.

Working on all my fears and insecurities
shouting out
devil
not a step closer
not one more scheme
not one more devastating event

You're done
and
I'm taking back all that belongs to God

You're finished
and
your cohorts too!
So back off Scammers!


"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms."

Ephesians 6:12

I am a
Freedom Fighter
on my knees
and
I'm back in my
"War Room"
praying
Fervently
after all, a while back
this was 
FerVent Friday
and
that enemy is
MESSING
with
the wrong person



{by the way, I was able to see "War Room" while home and it's a must see}
Power's rising up in me

it's Friday
and

I got me a 

Battle Plan

of 

Prayers

from another book from the movie

my one in English is at home but I have one in Spanish here
SO
HA-HA-HA
I'm serving ya' notice - Hands off of me, my family and those who care
for me and mine
My GOD is BIGGER

IN CONTROL

He's already defeated you

April 17 - 2 Kings 3:15

Chris Tiegreen (C.T.) 


Thank You Lord for the music that removes the blocks of me listening to You. Forgive me for the times I fail to listen to You because of my emotions being up or down, for any anxious thoughts, mental strategies or momentary moods that I allow to pass through my thoughts instead of engaging and focusing on You. May You always be first in my thoughts and my heart. I thank You for the symphony of instruments or sweet song of a dove that alerts me in the morning so my spirit can hear Your Voice as I trust in You. I so desire to hear the 'language of Your heart'. Thank You for these guiding prayers to lead me straight to You.

April 18 - 2 Chronicles 20:14-15

... "Holy Spirit, give me the boldness to take steps of faith. Help me to be discerning without over analyzing - to trust Your ability to lead more than my ability to miss Your leading." ...
Chris Tiegreen (C.T.) 

April 19 - 2 Corinthians 1:25

... "Father, I trust Your will - even when I don't understand it, and even when others might think I'm foolish for following it. I embrace Your wisdom, no matter how it appears" ...(C.T.) 
Chris Tiegreen  


April 20 - Matthew 11:25

... "Father, I want to hear Your Voice in the midst of life's circumstances - just like Jesus did. Bring me to that place of listening. Give me the sensitivity to hear and the boldness to believe." ... (C.T.) 
Chris Tiegreen 


Oh Yes, Father, in the midst of every circumstance
may I clearly hear You and follow Jesus.

“O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, thank You for hiding these things from those who think themselves wise and clever, and for revealing them to the childlike. 26Yes, Father, it pleased you to do it this way!

Keep me seeking Your wisdom like a child.
Keep me sensitive and humble.
Keep me bold in believing
as You bring me
to that place
of
LISTENING
to
You

W.O.W. ~ NOT SPIRITUAL ENOUGH

[image credit]

... "Lord, I don't want to be paralyzed with uncertainty. Help me to follow Your voice even when I have questions.Please direct me as I move forward, and keep me in the middle of Your will."... Chris Tiegreen April 13 - Genesis 12:4


I shared this back on SONday when I gathered all the prayers for this week from "Hearing His Voice" and I mentioned that I might share the entire devotional "From the Heart of God" ... which is the one for Fri. however, I'm combining it with this one.

I thought about just this prayer this morning and how fear, insecurity and/or uncertainty have indeed paralyzed me from doing anything, moving forward or moving at all. So I leaned in to hear God's "whisper" and listen to His heart. 

"You would be shocked if I told you how many people refuse to seek My voice because they feel disqualified. They assume they are not 'spiritual' enough. The vast majority of people who believe I speak to human beings have enough faith to believe I will speak to someone else. But they doubt I will speak to them. They don't consider themselves worthy enough, devoted enough, tuned in enough, deep enough, prayerful enough - or anything else 'enough' - to be able to know Me well and sense My presence. They speak of My aMazing Grace and relentless love ... for others. But their faith fails to accept My Grace and love for them."

When will you understand? I've taken away everything that interferes with your ability to hear Me and receive My love. I've cleared the path between Myself and you. All that remains is for you to ask, seek, and believe. You are already holy enough, spiritual enough, and worthy enough. You must position yourself to hear, but not by earning the right. The only things you must achieve are rest and trust. I give gifts, not merit badges. There's never a need to doubt My willingness to make Myself known to you."

"Don't keep your distance from Me. I've gone to great lengths to bridge that distance and unite us as one. When you run from Me, hide form Me, or even just grow cold toward Me - whether through your guilt, shame, fear, or apathy - you are wasting a gift I have paid an enormous price to give you. I'm intensely interested in your relationship with Me. That relationship will flourish if you are intensely interested too."
{copied by hand from Chris Tiegreen's devotional book "Hearing His Voice"}


How often I have felt I was not 'enough' so clearly that carried over to my spiritual life too. But there were also times I guess I must have thought, I was more than enough by my actions until I learned that without Jesus, I am nothing and with Him, I can do all things, through Christ who gives me strength. Yet for some intimidating reason, I do believe God speaks to people, but have a hard time with believing He might speak to me, because I'm just not 'spiritual' enough and that whole list yet, hardly worthy of hearing God. So this is so true for me except that I love to be in His Presence and I do know when I am. It's just that my approval and people pleasing need crosses over to God too! Thus, you can tell how I related to this as if Chris wrote this just for me from God. I'm just not distant from God.

"Lord, may I never let my own insecurities come between us..."


Then I recalled what 
Laurie McClure
suggested
at the
end
of
the
beginning blog post
before the prayer
with Faith Gateway's new 
Online Bible Study
"The Longing in Me"
by
Sheila Walsh

..."And lastly for this week, I encourage you to consider question #5 on page 17 and if you can, grab a mug of coffee or tea (Sheila’s a Scot so she would probably have tea), and take that long walk someplace beautiful. I’m going to walk on Crystal Cove beach -- my favorite place.

On your walk, ask these questions:
  • Of yourself, ask "When am I most aware of my longing for God? Is my longing for God now strong, weak, or somewhere in between? And why?"
  • Of God, ask, “Lord, I know that You long for me. Will you show it to me?” " Laurie McClure
So, this is perfect motivation and fit for my Walk On Weds.

"When am I most aware of my longing for God? 
Is my longing for God now strong, weak, 
or somewhere in between? 
And why?"

I use to "long for God" when I was in need and then I became more aware of a deeper longing in my time alone and especially when awakened in the early morning hours ... then it ended up being an intimate longing met on Fri. and sometimes continues through the weekend as I lean into Him, hearing Him ... and this year, I am really "longing" to listen more intently, so I'd say it's stronger every time. This week, in the 1st session of "The Longing in Me"... is "the longing to be chosen". Many times, we know that "we are chosen" by God yet it takes awhile for us to really accept, that the God of the entire universe really chose me ... "I am His and He is mine."

or 
as the song says
"For I am Yours and You are mine"


“Lord, I know that You long for me. Will you show it to me?”

OK, I realize that I did not stick to what I wrote my plan was for this series of doing it on Tues., Thurs. and Sat. because my others days already were committed to other "writings" ... however, I find it easier, if at all possible, to just focus on one prayer a day. Today, however, I've decided to post the entire week since tomorrow is "aMazing Mondays" plus this Mon. another Online Book Study starts with Sheila Walsh. You may find me reposting the prayers later this week again for that day alone, if I have no other "stuff" for that day. Of course, I receive "whispers" twice a week in my emails from LOOP and The Passion Translation and sometimes from other sources, yet I'm working towards "Hearing His Voice" directly and one day being able to write what I hear as I listen. Many "whispers" seem to be personal nudges right now for me ... but the ones that Jennifer Camp shares seem like anyone can be blessed by hers which is my aim. Broad, but specific, as I LISTEN for His Voice. In so many ways, this is just another "Soaking On SONday" (S.O.S.) because I just love "soaking" and "soaring" ... on SONdays. As we "soak" in our day of rest, speak with Him, we can tune in to LISTEN


April 10 - Proverbs 3:5

... "Lord, I don't want to just do whatever seems right. My understanding is limited, but You know what's best. I want to hear You clearly and specifically." ...
Chris Tiegreen (C.T.) 

April 11 - Proverbs 3:6

... "Lord, I'm seeking Your will in everything, just as You instructed me to do. I want to live without regrets, which means living with clear vision
and purpose. I'll wait as long as I have to in order to hear You. Please reward my persistence with direction and a deeper knowledge of You."... Chris Tiegreen (C.T.) 


April 12 - Genesis 12:1

... "Lord, I'm listening for You in whatever ways You want to speak, Please draw my attention to the messages You want me to notice. Let me hear Your singular direction from multiple angles so I can believe it's Your will."...
Chris Tiegreen (C.T.) 

April 13 - Genesis 12:4
{happy birthday, big brother! 
although I know you won't ever see this here}

... "Lord, I don't want to be paralyzed with uncertainty. Help me to follow Your voice even when I have questions. Please direct me as I move forward, and keep me in the middle of Your will."...Chris Tiegreen

April 14 - 1 Thessalonians 5:11

... "Holy Spirit, use the screen of my imagination to write Your will, impress Your thoughts, and draw Your pictures. Speak into the hearts of Your people through me."...

Chris Tiegreen 

April 15 - Isaiah 44:22

"From the Heart of God"
{I noticed that when it is these, my favorites, 
that they are most often from Isaiah. 
I love Isaiah too! So this makes sense.}

... "Lord, may I never let my own insecurities come between us. You have invited me freely into Your presence; any hindrances are my own doing. Help me to come to You freely."...
Chris Tiegreen (C.T.) 


{how often I tend to not realize this - "any hindrances are of my own doing" even that my own insecurities most likely are also. How I need to think on this when my insecurities surface or show up.}

Maybe I should end here with the 15th, a Friday ... because as you know, I'm away ... and I could really do these all on Sat. (6 p.m.) for the next week. Oh, and I also may choose to type out the entire "From the Heart" devotional for the 15th.

But just in case ...


April 16 - Exodus 3:2


... "Lord, I know the costs of hearing You are high, but I still want to encounter You. I am willing to face the responsibility of knowing Your will." ...
Chris Tiegreen (C.T.) 


... "Yearn for God's Voice,
but make no mistake about what the yearning will lead to:
greater hearing and therefore, much greater responsibility.
An exceptional encounter with God demands
stepping into an exceptional destiny." (C.T.)



YEARNING = LONGING

Chris Tiegreen (C.T.) 

Perfect 
for my Friday away

"Many cry out for an outpouring of My Spirit, but few are willing for Me to do that in whatever I please. Do you understand what it means when you ask this? You are asking for an experience with Me ...

Do you long for this? ... You will experience My Spirit abundantly. 

Ask for this, I told you to seek first My Kingdom, and this is the highest priority in that search. The Kingdom must come in you before it comes through you. Don't look for the Kingdom around you without looking for it deep inside. I will pour out My Spirit - My Perspectives, My thoughts, My Power, My heart - within you. Only believe. And then be open to whatever I do."
