My God stuff thinkings

Pools are not unlike denominations - bodies of water cut off from the flowing source that once filled them, sitting to grow stagnant and sometimes bitter. People flock to them for refreshment in times of dryness, seek healing in the waters which a supernatural stirring or movement can gift, or act as a place for opposing parties to sit either side and then get up to fight each other to the death.


Check out all references to 'pool' in the bible.


It is awesome how God's wisdom describes a living, flowing and yet very dividing river of his Spirit to create UNITY in his people. There is nothing like our GOD!! His ways are higher than our own.

Praying for the future plans of our property. Dreamimg of turning it into the Habitation, as a tourist entertainment/education destination - a place of learning how tha brain works and how to form a new habit (like my new book). Complete with five massive GIANTS of fear and interactive things for people of all ages to learn about the God-designed cleverness of our mind. The trees will be filled with fairy lights for the healthy thoughts and the giants will taunt and be terrifying. The conscious will be above ground and the subconscious will be holes in the ground. The place can have accomodation for intensive education/support for teaching CBT techniques from Dr Caroline Leaf's and the Word's perspective. There could be picnic areas by the pond and so many other locations, and we already have the tracks dug for the paths for people to walk and discover all the brain science in 3D. The giants will be the draw factor and all the highschools can send teens to learn basic anti-anxiety and coping mechanisms for the stressors of life, then for those wanting a deeper look, God's story can be introduced and for those staying for retreats, they can be smothered in prayer and sessions from so many God-led people.

Pray with me.

Hershey, my chocolate labrador, had her nose in the door entrance when I was sweeping behind some furniture yesterday. She characteristically lunged for the crust of bread in the pile of dust. I shock my hand at her and told her to go outside. Uncharacteristically, she ignored me and kept trying to get the crust of bread from the pile. Again and again I told her off and tried to shoo her away (she is usually obedient). Finally, she dived in with her brown bulk and grabbed the crust, much to my frustration. I used the broom in my hand on her nose, though I felt it donked her rather roughly. She looked at me in pain and scurried away.

When the children arrived home from school, I heard one call to another to hurry up and feed Hershey! The child on duty for the animals had forgotten her morning job! I felt soooo bad that I had donked her. She was just really hungry!! 

 

Today, on my run, Hershey stayed behind me most of the way, at my heels instead of dog-dancing on ahead in delight. I thought of how much crime there is in the world, and the hateful anger and selfishness behind so many people's actions. I can guarantee they are all hungry!!!

 

Jesus calls us to feed - to give out food, to pass on morsels of sustanence, to gift life-giving stuff. To give them the Author of Life itself.

I can still hardly believe it 18 months later that the translation of the Book of Told for A21 Campaign into Portuguese is still going ahead!! Just had confirmation again and explanation of delays. God bless her and her family and all those who this might help either eternally or in freedom of slavery.

God...I'm facedown in awe.

 

God, I need you, need you, need you. Take my mind and rework it to be filled with the desires and passions of your own heart. Spirit of the living Son - it is such a privilege to have you! You, God, who has so many names to mark and define the so many aspects of your endless nature, the so many figures of redemptive protection you cover us in. 

I need more faith. I need more knowledge so I can speak and act in Your influence in every moment of my busy days. Build me up. Strengthen me. Cause me to hunger even more groanfully for you! 

 

You satisfy like nothing else on this earth. You garner admiration for all Your works even if they admirees do not acknowledge the artist. You are loved by so many, even, I think, those who have You confused under the discord of Christian disunity. God be blessed. 

 

How can I bless You more??? You have blessed me with so much!!!!

I can not ask for more blessings, nor for others... just for the world's eyes to be opened to the blessings that You have LAVISHED on us all - already!!!!

 

Shine in my hometown of Thames. Shine in New Zealand. Shine in every country! Raise up warriors to fight with the weapons You hold in Your hands.

This weeks memory verse: The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have devine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretense that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and take captive every thought to make it obedient to Jesus Christ. 2 Cor 9 7,8?

I am about to throw up from a vomiting and diarrhea bug that I have picked up from work. 

It is unpleasant to say the least, but I am reminded that ridding ourselves of viruses is not easy work. The body's response is to rally to the offender with fighter cells, and build memory cells to stand as a barrier to the virus for the next time it is introduced. Work this in me, Lord.

 

I am tired. Keep me from being over run. Build me up again. I get scared so often when I look around me. Keep my eyes on You, and Your power at work in me and all those who believe and act on Your words. Teach me how You build Your story into everthing about us. Open my eyes even wider!!! And settle my stomach. Blush

Kylie, I would be delighted to have my name as a side character in your next book. I am telling anyone who will listen that they too must read The Book of Told.

For the first time in many years I have found a book that I didn't want to put down. I wanted to just continue reading to find out where the story was going.
