Love 

WORTHY THOUGHT: Seek to live in His love
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers a multitude of sins. -1 Peter 4:8 

There is a special relationship between all sincere believers with good matureness. 

We must intensely and fervently love each other because love covers a multitude of sins. 

It inclines us to forgive and forget offenses, rather than get mad and spread gossip or seek revenge. 

The scripture teaches us to show mercy for others, forgive and continue to love them just as God whom first loved us, has shown mercy and forgiven us of our own sins. 

We love because He first loved us. -1 John 4:9

Finding Me 

Surrounded by darkness

No way of escape

Tormented by demons

Holding me hostage

I trample on love, mercy and grace

I wouldn’t allow it to stick to me

Darkness clings like a wet blanket 

I can’t shake it off

It became part of me

Through the choices I made 

And the choices that were made 

On my behalf

My heart ruled by fear and hopelessness

Not a flicker of light in sight

I am sinking deeper and deeper away in despair

Darkness took over every part of me

Dark thoughts

Dark words

Dark face

Far from the life I imagined I’d live

Then all of a sudden there You are

Like a beacon of light in the dark

Stepping into my life

You are dressed in glory

You glisten with love

I try to hide, but I am overtaken

by Your holy presence 

I am numb by the peace 

enveloping You

You take a step closer to me

Till I stand in the shadow of Your

passionate love

Darkness had to flee at the sight

of Your majesty

I am so aware of my brokenness

So aware of every disappointment

So aware of the pain I have caused You

I wait for You to judge me

Instead Your love draws me in

Giving me a glimpse of Your heart for me

An all consuming fire flowing from Your being, 

Burning away all that has clung to me

Replacing darkness with Your light

I am free at last

I am overwhelmed by Your presence

Speechless that You came looking for me

Nothing could stop You from finding me

In Your gaze I found myself

I know that I am deeply loved

My dress once torn and stained 

is now replaced with royal robes

My face once immersed with pain

Now glistens with Your love

My whole being is lavished with 

Your kindness and grace

I am free to be Your bride

I am redeemed

I am deeply loved

Nothing could stop You from finding me

Triumph And Tragedy 

As I walk this great unknown

Questions come and questions go

Was there purpose for the pain?

Did I cry these tears in vain?

I don’t want to live in fear

I want to trust that You are near

Trust Your grace can be seen

In both triumph and tragedy

And I have this hope

In the depth of my soul

In the flood or the fire

You’re with me and You won’t let go….

What a beautiful Promise we have that in the flood or the fire, triumph or tragedy, God is always there and He won’t let us go.

I Have This Hope – Tenth Avenue North 
Lyrics:

As I walk this great unknown

Questions come and questions go

Was there purpose for the pain?

Did I cry these tears in vain?

I don’t want to live in fear

I want to trust that You are near

Trust Your grace can be seen

In both triumph and tragedy

I have this hope

In the depth of my soul

In the flood or the fire

You’re with me and You won’t let go

But sometimes my faith feels thin

Like the night will never end

Will You catch every tear

Or will You just leave me here?

But I have this hope

In the depth of my soul

In the flood or the fire

You’re with me and You won’t let go

So, whatever happens I will not be afraid

Cause You are closer than this breath that I take

You calm the storm when I hear You call my name

I still believe that one day I’ll see Your face

And I have this hope

In the depth of my soul

In the flood or the fire

You’re with me

I have this hope

In the depth of my soul

In the flood or the fire

You’re with me and You won’t let go

In the flood or the fire

You’re with me and You won’t let go

Restoration Stories – Joann Carpenter 

I have walked with some of the shadiest characters–drug cartels and drunken fools–and put those closest to me in danger to witness my own twisted downfall. 

I’ve suffered near death experiences through abuse from the hand of man and my own choices- I am only alive because of the Father

After hitting my knees crying out to the Father “Help me I can’t do this anymore,” HE, after allowing me to walk 24-years in rebellion, addiction and tragedy, stopped time and reached inside of me and pulled 24 years of victim mentality, addiction (smoking cigarettes and pot, drinking, occasional cocaine, and sexual desires) right out of me. YHSVH began at an accelerated rate restoring all that the enemy has taken and multiplied His goodness.

After the Angel of The Lord came to me in 2011 revealing who I was as a prophet and oracle, He began to train and equip me for the revealing of this position, laying a foundation for what was to come. I have been anointed and equipped with the honor to serve the King of kings, Lord of lords, opening the blind eyes, deaf ears and command the lame to walk into the deeper, hidden mysteries of heaven, revealing our true identity. It is here, His original blueprints over our lives and all of creation manifest on earth as it is in heaven.

I am a sister, mother, daughter, wife, YHSVH (Jesus) friend, minister, Kingdom Dweller, Son(position) of G-d, Author of a New upcoming book  “NAVIGATING THE ASHES-Discovering Your Blueprints”, owner of Arising Sons of God and public speaker. I operate from the Government of Heaven as an administrator/legislator—All for the advancement of the Kingdom of Heaven, as it is all about Him and His Glory to be revealed. All of Him, none of me.   

Some Scriptures I really love:
He said to them, “Therefore every teacher of the law who has become a disciple in the kingdom of heaven is like the owner of a house who brings out of his storeroom new treasures as well as old.” Matthew 13:52 NIV

For in Him we live and move and exist [that is, in Him we actually have our being], as even some of your own poets have said, ‘For we also are His children Acts 17:28 AMP

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33 KJV

2 3 4 Get Ready For More

          

This morning I awoke at 2:34 am and I heard the Lord say…. 234 Get ready for more.

I got excited because I have been getting a whisper from the Lord for months now with the word “Windfall“.   

wind·fall

ˈwin(d)fôl/

noun

    * a piece of unexpected good fortune, typically one that involves receiving a large amount of money.”windfall profits”

    * synonyms:

    * bonanza, jackpot, pennies from heaven, stroke/piece of luck, godsend, manna from heaven

As I looked up the definition these 2 synonyms are what caught my attention.

           godsend, manna from heaven. 

So I asked the Lord to unpack this MORE; and Windfall for me….
I was taken to Deuteronomy 11. 
 “And if you will indeed obey my commandments that I command you today, to love the Lord your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul, he will give the rain for your land in its season, the early rain and the later rain, that you may gather in your grain and your wine and your oil. And he will give grass in your fields for your livestock, and you shall eat and be full. ~ Deuteronomy 11:13-15

 “See, I am setting before you today a blessing and a curse: the blessing, if you obey the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you today, and the curse, if you do not obey the commandments of the Lord your God, but turn aside from the way that I am commanding you today, to go after other gods that you have not known. ~ Deuteronomy 11:26-28
                    Bingo! Jackpot!
                    The godsend

god·send

ˈɡädˌsend/

noun

1. a very helpful or valuable event, person, or thing.

2. synonyms:

3. boon, blessing, bonus, plus, benefit, advantage, help, aid, asset; More
Did you catch that right there in the synonyms? -MORE 

The benefit, bonus, advantage, help and MORE is in the godsend, God himself and also His Angels He has put on assignment for you. 

The manna from heaven (miraculous provision from God) that’s our windfall. 

The building up for us to receiving more, the key that unlocks the more, the open heaven that makes way for the windfall is in our obedience to God and His Word. 
We build upon each right choice, each moment of uncomfortable obedience we tackle, that is what makes room for more and opens up the blessings of the Lord, our manna from heaven, our windfalls to fall down. 

Where there once was / God now supplies:

Lack / Abundance

Curses / Blessings 

Fear / Courage

Grief / Hope

Confusion / Clarity

Disappointments / Determination

Sickness / Health 

Brokenness / Wholeness

Rejection / Protection

Rebellion / Obedience

Found And Free 

I was lost, but now I’m found.  

Blind, but now I see.  

Enslaved to the past, but now free.  

Broken, but now mended.  

Fearful, but now fearless.  

Anxious, but given peace.  

Alone, but now He’s with me always.  

Tired, but given new strength.  

Depressed, but now He’s lightened my burden and shown me that this life is worth living because it was worth Him dying so I could live this life abundantly; without regret, without fear holding me back.  

I may be my worst enemy, 

but God is my greatest friend, 

and because He’s greater in His strength 

than I am in mine, He’ll defeat me with His love and kindness and show me that 

when I’m weak, He is strong to deliver me from myself and the enemy’s grip on my life.  

As death is knocking on my door, 

so is God and his knock is louder than the enemy’s; the one who wants to kill, steal, and destroy me.  

Christ came so I might have life and have it abundantly.  

So, why have I not taken advantage of it before now?  
Because I was once deaf to His voice, blind to the light, and allowed the enemy to take me captive into a deep, miserable, and painful place of enslavement to that which God had freed me from even before I was born because as He hung on the cross He said, “IT IS FINISHED.” 

Those words encompass all that I have done, am doing, and will do in the future that doesn’t align myself with God. 

But because He is a loving God, 

He will keep showing up to grasp my hand and help me stand when I fall for the things of this world.  
I know I can’t fill the void inside with anything or anyone outside of God, for God created me with this void that ONLY He can fill.  
I want Him in my life more than this world has place.  

I want my life to be in align with God; 

a mind set on His will and plan for me, 

thoughts that are of Him, 

a heart that loves as Christ loved me, 

words that speak life, 

and actions that are pleasing to my heavenly Father.  
What He did for me at the cross I could never repay, but He gave me this life and these gifts and talents; what I choose to do with them for His kingdom is my gift back to Him.  

So, may I let go of fear holding me back from all that God has for me, and let God lead me into the way of the everlasting.

~ Bethany Anne 

Charity 

WORTHY THOUGHT: Charity begins today. 

Today somebody is suffering. Today somebody is in the street. Today somebody is hungry. 

Our work is for today, yesterday has gone, tomorrow has not yet come. 

We have only today to make Jesus known, loved, served, fed, clothed, sheltered. 

Do not wait for tomorrow. 

Tomorrow we will not have them 

if we do not feed them today.

-Mother Teresa 


Proverbs 19:17(ESV)

Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed.

Acts 20:35 (ESV)

In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”

James 1:27 (ESV)

Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.

Once we take our eyes away from ourselves, our interest, and ambitions, then we will clearly see Jesus all around us.

~ Angela Lipe-Pattengill 

The Sun Stood Still


“So the sun did not move, and the moon stopped until the people defeated their enemies. This story is written in the Book of Jashar. The sun stopped in the middle of the sky. It did not move for a full day.” ~Joshua‬ ‭10:13‬ ‭ERV‬‬

Heartache, defeat, shattered dreams, and broken hearts, all experienced by an innocence that was stolen, a sun that was forgotten, while destiny and time seemed to stand still. 

The battle ground seemed dreary and victory seemed hopeless, in the blanket of the night, God knew there would be freedom. He awaits, waiting as we get ready and prepared for the battle ahead. 

No matter what your battle is God never stops thinking of you. He understands your pain, heavy heart, unanswered questions, and unresolved resolutions. 

He is constant in the sky above and on the earth below. Find comfort in him today.

~ Baring His Beauty,

Deep Love 

You saw me

When no one did

You searched for me

When I was lost

You wooed me in

When I wasn’t even aware of You

What God is this that would follow us to the ends of the earth?

What God is this that never gives 

up on us?

What God is this that fights for us when we don’t even know?

His love is relentless

It follows us into the darkest 

of places

It follows us through the valley 

of death

It follows us till we have reached 

the end

Finds it way through every crack 

in our heart

Found its way to my dark soul

See behind the masks I chop 

and change

The picturized smile I portray

He doesn’t give up, even when I reject His love

He doesn’t give up, even when I tell Him to

He pursue me relentless

Shows me that I am worthy

Till I run into His arms of love

His love mixed with my tears of shame and guilt

Cleanse my heart

Uproot my fears

Heal my scars

Erase my shame

Transform my life

Till all I can see is His love 

flowing from the cross to me

A wretch

A sinner

Turned into a son and a daughter

I never knew a love so deep existed

It leaves me breathless

hungry for more

It is deeper then my loudest sin

Higher then my silent shame

Wider then my desperate fears

I am lost in it

Forever one with it

I will never get enough of it!

~ Ebigale Wilson
