Uninhibited 

I wake up and release my confessions 

I clear my vision to the possibilities 

I stretch forth my arms and receive gratitude 

I pick out my desire to wear reckless abandon 

I get up and run out uninhibited 

God deposited the word “uninhibited” into my thinker a couple of weeks ago. I have been rolling the word around and around in my head asking God to reveal to me it’s meaning. 

It gets personal and God shows me how he desires to walk out my relationship with Him without restraint. 

Think about how the word could relate to you? 

How can you enter His courts with praise without caring what anyone else thinks of your singing?

How can you drop off the entanglements that keep you from seeking Him? 

How can you walk on the wild side pleasing Him with all that you do?

How can you love and trust Him without hesitation?

How can you wake up each morning free with out restraint?

How can you go without hesitation and not look back?

2 Corinthians ‪3:17‬ “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.”

Galatians 2:4 “…our freedom that we have in Christ Jesus…”

John ‪8:36‬ “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.”

Proverbs ‪1:33‬ “But whoever listens to me will dwell secure and will be at ease, without dread of disaster.”

Romans ‪8:15‬ “For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, ‘‪Abba‬! Father!’”

2 Timothy 1:7 “For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.”

Psalm 56:4 “In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I shall not be afraid. What can flesh do to me?”

Uninhibited,

Indescribable 

  
One of my favorite things is seeing God show off! Seeing Him work through others in magnificent ways is beyond thrilling! 

 Being a part of His plan, though, is even more…well, it’s indescribable

Use me, God! I am willing! 

 Jesus, allow me to be Your hands and feet!

 Teach me to be a fisher of men! 

 I want to be like the birds that sing Your praises, like the flowers that bloom to Your song, like the stars that shine in the darkest of nights…all being who they were created to be!

 Allow me not to wither away as the parched plant in a neverending drought. 

 Allow my heart not to hollow as with the start of petrified wood or harden as fossilized stone.  

Protect me from the weathering work of the enemy and the venom of the serpents that threaten to steal what You say is mine. 

 Seal shut the wounds deep within me that hinder Your work! 

 Stop the salty flow of pain and replace it with Your gentle kiss! 

 Show me how to love like You! 

 Accept my repentance for holding on for so long to things that were never meant for me to bear! 

Receive these things and have Your way!

 Receive ME and do as You wish! 

 May all of these things be done according only to Your will. 

Amen…and so be it.

I Want To Be Where You Are

  
What if you started off each day with that declaration??

I Want To Be Where You Are

I wake up and shout this out loud. Okay, maybe after the kids and husband have left for the day I start shouting. 

Let’s go to Jazzercise, Jesus!!” I whisper as I get ready to leave. 
I chuckle as I imagine if He would be wearing His customary brown robe we all see him portrayed in the movies.  
I got to admit that kinda tripped me up trying to visualize him jumping and grooving to the music with a robe flapping around. 
I started to imagine him in old fashion peddle pushers like the men wore in the 1800’s. I don’t know why I took him to George Washington’s era but that’s where we went. 

Then I saw him wearing brown loose pants and a button down brown shirt. 
I noticed it took my mind to things I didn’t think about before. I could see in my minds eye Jesus walking around touching the ladies on their heads. As if the touch reminded them He loved them and delighted in who they were. 
It caused me to join Him and pray a quick prayer over the ladies to bless them and draw each of them closer to Him. All of this being done while I am trying to keep up with the moves and steps of the instructor. 

This is why I am always in the back!!! 

It’s best for everyone I am there

Next stop is the store. Jesus accompanies me as I run to get a few groceries. As I walk around I am aware more than I have ever been before of the people in the store. One by one I pass them. Jesus and I smile and agree together that God has good good plans for them and we declare that anything stopping them from their destinies will be cast aside. We proclaim that they will experience a relationship with their Creator and Company. (Holy Spirit & Jesus)

It’s just a simple fun way to bring Him into your everyday life!!

I am reminded that our minds are powerful and really determine the outcome of each day. 

Will we chose to keep our eyes fixed on Him or the circumstances of life that weigh us down and bring us into fear or anxiety? 
I think Jesus likes shopping!! We are going there again tomorrow and will see what happens!!

Philippians 4:8

“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”

Place this verse in your front and center data brain base!!

If you find yourself not motivated to take Jesus out of your house with you for the day then pray and ask for a desire to want to be with Him!!

Say this prayer and play this song today and see what happens!!!

 ~Keep Grooving with Jesus, 

(He Has Miraculous Moves)

Lord, 

        Wake us up and put a hot fire under us to thirst for you and desire you!! We are running after you. My soul longs to be where you are today. ~Me

A Close And Loving Father 

  
Father, we are forever thankful that though we walk in the mist of trouble, you will revive us.

You my Lord, will stretch out your hand against the wrath of our enemies and Your right hand will save us. (Psalm 138:7) 
Father we give our praise and worship you on this beautiful day. We are so grateful that you are not a distance Father. That you are a close and loving father. That your love is unconditional and everlasting. As your child I long to make you proud. For you my Lord alone are my inheritance, my cup of blessing, you guard all that is mine. The land you have given me is a pleasant land. What a wonderful inheritance!! (Psalm 16:5-6) 
I praise and honor You as my Father God, and I give You thanks always for all the things especially Your love. (Ephesians 5:20) You are my Creator, you are my Heavenly Father, you are our all mighty powerful God. You are my light and salvation.
I thank you Lord that whenever I am afraid, or I am in need, that I can always trust You. That when I seek you that you hear me, and you deliver me from all of my fears and from all of my troubles. 

So today my friends, go out with great confidence knowing that you’re not walking alone, that the Lord your God is always with you. He is a close and loving Father. When in need today speak to Him and He will hear you. He will deliver you. 
Have a blessed day.

I Can And I Will 

  

I can and I will….

Stand and fight for those who do not know Him,

Living out my life as a reflection of Jesus Christ,

The one who freed us from slavery, death

And darkness that once lingered within our numb souls

That is now awakened in His eternal promises

 

I can and I will...

 

Speak out for those who are voiceless yet long to be heard;

I no longer care what the world thinks, for my fight is not

Against flesh and blood, but against the one who comes

To steal, kill, and destroy that which God is calling me into-

His plan and purpose for my life that will bring glory to His name

 

I can and I will….

 

Forgive as Christ forgave me, in my sin and rebellion;

Bleed a tongue of prayers raised to my heavenly Father,

Accept His will for my life, whatever it may be,

For I no longer desire what I want, but what He does

With the life He gave to me, I now give it to Him as a sacrifice

 

I can’t and I won’t….

 

Again believe the lies that I once accepted as truth,

Allowing darkness to rob me of the life given to me at birth,

For He’s calling me into the war grounds of this soul

Beating now in rhythms of perfection He’s orchestrated

Into my being, as an instrument being played by the Creator

 

I can and I will….

 

Keep fighting the good fight for my good Father

Who has saved my life from bondage in darkness

And freed my soul, breathing into its ocean,

Giving me the depth of understanding He’s entrusted to me,

For without Him, I wouldn’t exist, therefore, I am His

           ~Bethany Anne 

No Shilly-Shallying 

  
I tell my children if it matters to you, it matters to God.  

I don’t believe any prayer with a right heart is too trivial or insignificant to God.

What I do struggle with is the shilly-shallying part.

I know what God’s word says, but sometimes I let fear and doubt creep in. They are master creepers too. Like those super quiet ninjas disguised and they just jump right out and before you know it they are swirling ninja stars at your head. I was a pretty good dodger in my dodge ball days…. but those red balls rarely hurt as I can only imagine what a ninja star would feel like. Yikes!

Lately, the Lord has been telling me – “No Divided Loyalties”- you cannot say My word and declare something if you really don’t believe it or Me. You live by My ways or the worlds ways -but not both.  
Another Yikes! 
So I can’t just cover up my shilly-shallying with another prayer of -Lord, I believe – help my unbelief? 

Nope, It’s all about growth, believing, trust, and your heart.  

I can pray that prayer genuinely – but not as a cover up for my unbelief and doubt, which is how I mostly use it.

God has been speaking so many truths and revelations to my heart lately and one He is speaking very loudly to me is that if I take God at His word for all His other promises, why do I think some things are just beyond His control? I am being double minded and that is not the mind of Christ.  

I have wrestled with this in my own life and in my own healing, and I am also seeing it wrestled with by many of my friends and family too.
So today’s 15 of 15 of My Fasting Experience downloads, these two verses were unpacked to bring me back to reflect on many answered prayers and many unanswered prayers.   

I started to think back that when I was not double minded and let the doctors, or specialist, or opinions of others sway me, or my own pre-judgements, deter me; I actually saw God move some incredible mountains.   

So today was a confirmation for me that we take EVERYTHING to God in prayer. We ask the Holy Spirit to help us when we don’t even know how or what to pray. We ask the Holy Spirit to reveal ANYTHING that is hindering our prayers, and repent and rectify those things. We keep declaring His Word over our situations and asking those mountains to move. We have No Divided Loyalties- and there is to be absolutely none of this shilly-shallying mess going on.

               

Lord, help me to have no divided loyalties when it comes to You, my life, or my prayers. No fear or doubt when it comes to You and Your word. Reveal to me anything hindering my prayers. Show me if a spiritual conflict is delaying Your answer. Show me how to fight these battles that rage with Your Holy Spirit and Your Word. Give me boldness to declare Your promises over anything and everything in my life and in the lives of others without any doubt. Thank you for answered prayers and unanswered prayers. Help me to trust that You work EVERYTHING out for my good. Let me remember to take it all to the throne and not the phone. To vent it all vertically and keep my heart free from anything that would take place over You. Thank You for giving me ALL power and authority over the enemy. May I continue to suit up in Your armor daily to fight the good fight of faith. In Your Son’s Mighty Name. Amen.

Listen to me! You can pray for anything, and if you believe, you have it; it’s yours!~ Mark 11:24 TLB 

Jesus was matter-of-fact: “Embrace this God-life. Really embrace it, and nothing will be too much for you. This mountain, for instance: Just say, ‘Go jump in the lake’—no shuffling or shilly-shallying—and it’s as good as done. That’s why I urge you to pray for absolutely everything, ranging from small to large. Include everything as you embrace this God-life, and you’ll get God’s everything. And when you assume the posture of prayer, remember that it’s not all asking. If you have anything against someone, forgive—only then will your heavenly Father be inclined to also wipe your slate clean of sins.” ~ Mark 11:22-25 MSG 

It is God’s will to remove mountains of resistance or denial from our life. God has the power to do miracles – but not as a result of a positive mental attitude. The God of the kingdom in our recovery is the God of the impossible. If we want God to work a miracle of healing in our life, we cannot just pretend to believe. We need to admit our helplessness and put our life into God’s hands. He will then walk with us as we face each new step in recovery. ~Life Recovery Bible 

We know that God works all things together for good for the ones who love God, for those who are called according to his purpose. ~Romans 8:28 CEB

Prayer is listed in Romans 8:26-28 as one of the ways we improve our conscious contact with God, and Paul assures us that the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit is at work within us as we pray. We are not left alone to work out our problems. As we entrust our life to God, He directs the events of our life, even the painful ones, for our good. He can turn even our mistakes into the means for our growth and blessing. ~ Life Recovery Bible  

Mirror 

  

 

Define

A mirror can be defined as something regarded as accurately representing something else.

 

Affirm

James 1:23-25 “For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.”

 

Recall

Every morning, I use my mirror to prep myself for a day of work. The mirror to me is a reflection of what others see. About a week ago, I stopped for a minute and thought about what my reflection represents. I took another look into the mirror and looked deeper into my soul. In a moment of deep reflection, I asked myself:

1. What do I really see in this mirror?

2. Do I see myself as GOD sees me?

3. Am I reflecting a godly like image to others?

 
At that moment, I asked GOD to humbly come into my heart. I immediately started praying for myself and praying for others. It was such an Ah-ha moment. Here’s what I learned at that moment.

1. Many of us avoid mirrors because we are afraid of what we will see.

2. Many of us have a distorted view of what we see.

3. Many of us ignore what we see.

 
I learned that when we look in the mirror, some of us are crippled by fear, judgement, shame, guilt, worry, and stress. Often when we see these ailments, we ignore them and we operate through with a crippled state of mind. We become functionally mentally ill and sadly accept our lives as normal. I also learned that many times we avoid mirrors because we know that our baggage will be revealed and we feel so overwhelmed by the thought of letting go of the baggage, we tell ourselves it is easier to simply cope with it.

 
The reflection of what we see in the physical mirror is closely related to the reflection of what is seen through our spiritual mirror. When we open our hearts to GOD, we are forced to be honest with ourselves. God will show us the areas of life that we need to change. The word tells us to not only be hearers of the word; but doers of his word. When we adopt the practice of being doers, not just hearers, our reflections will change. Will we mirror a more Christ like life.
 

Decide who and what you want to accurately represent and watch GOD work!

I challenged you to move from a crippled state of mind and use GOD’s remedy, the word of GOD to help you use the mirror to:

1. Assess yourself spiritually

2. Align yourself with the word of god by doing.

3. Affirm the word and work of GOD by speaking life into your current image.

4. Choose to see yourself how God sees you.

 

Exercise:

Dear God,

Thank you for helping me to live out your word. Thank you so much for helping align myself with your word so that what others see is a reflection of you. Thank you for allowing me to see you as you see me.
