Updated to my ministry My Calling
STORMS HAPPENING IN THE WORLD AROUND US…
STORMS IN MY LIFE…
STORMS IN YOURS…
TURBULENCE ON EVERY SIDE.
One flip of the tv remote and the STORMS are raging before us: In the morning news of the world’s events, senseless tragedies, crimes, the political circus, floods, fires, sicknesses, earthquakes, heat rising, threats of war… you name it.
Enough to take away your appetite for breakfast.
Today… I have finally… surrendered to the fact that THIS IS my life, my purpose, my call: to INTERCEDE FOR THE WORLD’S HAPPENINGS AND PEOPLE, to travel the roads of adversity because it’s what’s always been:
STORMS arises on the waters of my own life.
FAITH in GOD and HIS WORD carries me TRUE NORTH so I don’t get off course, UNTIL WE GET TO THE OTHER SIDE.
HIS SPIRIT directs me in all things so that I STAY on TRACK to LEARN what I NEED to EVEN IN TEARS AND WITH SOME WRECKAGE AT TIMES THAT NEEDS HEALING, and
To APPLY those lessons to my life and walk.
THEN A TIME OF REST AND PEACEFUL WATERS RETURN AGAIN.
Am I perfect IN MOVING THROUGH THE STORMS? NOPE. BUT IN CONFESSING MY FAILINGS, I CAN AND WILL AND DO MOVE FORWARD ALWAYS!
ALWAYS LEARNING, EVEN SOME REMINDING AND RELEARNING, BUT MOVING AHEAD AS TIME GOES BY.
. In the world, in our own lives and in others lives.. BUT WITH JESUS I CAN FACE AND OVERCOME THEM, BECAUSE HE DID, AND HE IS WITH ME, AND AS LONG AS I KEEP MY FAITH, (NOT IN MYSELF), BUT IN HIS HAVING OVERCOMING THEM ALL, THEN I, IN TRUTH, HAVE ALREADY OVER COME THEM AS WELL BECAUSE HE LIVES IN ME AND I IN HIM.
I ALSO KNOW THAT MY PURPOSE… THE ONE THING I AM CALLED TO DO, NO MATTER WHERE I AM OR WHAT CAPACITY I AM SERVING IN, OR THE PEOPLE I AM SERVING, IT’S TO ‘WALK BESIDE THE ONES AROUND ME AS WELL’ THROUGH THEIR STORMS SO THAT THEY MIGHT OVERCOME THEM TOO. ISAIAH 61:3
Today I take hold of the ‘wheel with JESUS HOLDING ON TO ME.. GUIDING ME. IT’S GOING TO BE A JOY TO PULL INTO THE HARBOR OF HEAVEN SOMEDAY… BUT FOR RIGHT NOW.. I’M GOING TO FINISH THIS ‘SAIL’ STRONG AND BE ALL THE BETTER FOR IT!
