Wrong Number Miracle

Virginia Saenz could hear the desperation in the voice of the telephone message. It was 5 a.m. on the day before Thanksgiving, and the caller, Lucy Crutchfield, was trying to tell her daughter that she'd send money for groceries -- but she'd have to miss a mortgage payment to do it.
But Crutchfield dialed the wrong number. Instead of getting her daughter, she got Saenz, a real estate agent from the San Diego suburb of Tierrasanta.
"I know right now we are all struggling," Saenz said. "Lisa on the phone, she sounded so desperate for her daughter, it broke my heart."

Saenz did the only thing she could think of -- she called Crutchfield back and said not to worry. Crutchfield would pay the mortgage, and Saenz would handle the groceries.

"She said, 'You have the wrong number ... don't worry any more,' " Crutchfield recalled.
For Crutchfield, it was a holiday miracle. Her house is already in foreclosure. Her mother recently passed away, and Crutchfield is now trying to pay off her house. She had a money order prepared to make a mortgage payment on that house -- but was going to cash it in when her daughter called asking for money.

"I thought I was going to lose that house, too," Crutchfield said.
Saenz told Crutchfield to keep her money and promised to take care of her daughter. The real estate agent then called Crutchfield's daughter.
"I asked her what she would like, what her kids like, and then I felt really bad because she said she only wanted eggs and milk," Saenz said. "When somebody only asks you for eggs and milk, they are in a really bad situation."

So Saenz went grocery shopping on Thanksgiving morning with her 14-year-old son in tow to tell her what kids liked to eat. They bought food for a Thanksgiving dinner and enough groceries to get Crutchfield's daughter through the end of the month -- her next payday.
She said the act of giving made "the day special for me."
"I helped somebody," Saenz said Friday. "I think it's what anybody would have done."

Eric S. Page reports about all things San Diego, but he draws the line at cat stories.
Look how God works! Miracles still do happen if you only believe! ~Lady A~

A Prayer For You

"May there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us."

Are We Connected?

November 17th, 2009

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God. There are times in each of our lives that we must evaluate the people surrounding us. While we love to have people within our inner circle, it is imperative for us to make sure each person around us has been placed there by God and not because of our fear of being alone. In life there will be times when you will experience lonely periods, as well as discomfort from within. You will desire to do the same things you were able to do before but your spirit man will reject it. During the times when your spirit is willing but your flesh is weak, you must make sure the people around you are such that they can uplift you in prayer and not encourage you to sin against God.

Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you. My friend, it is time to ask that one question to everyone around you. The question that will determine if people in your life are there for a reason, a season or a lifetime (purpose). What is the question? It is very simple! The question is … Are We Connected? To be connected means to join or fasten together usually by something intervening. At this point in your life, you no longer need one-night stands but covenant partners in the Lord. People who pray for you fervently and faithfully. People who hold you accountable for the actions you perform and responsible for the assignments entrusted to you. The Bible declares in 1 Samuel 18:1 - And it came to pass, when he had made an end of speaking unto Saul, that the soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul.

My brother, my sister, do you have any person in your life willing to endure the fire with you? Do you have anyone in your life who sows into your spirit? Beloved, there will be times when the entire crowd is screaming your name. They will applaud everything you do. But there will also be times when the same crowd will criticize and scorn you. They will try their best to tear you down. During these times, do you have any brothers and/or sisters connected with you in the spirit? Better yet, are you connected to anyone in the spirit? The Bible declares in Proverbs 18:24 - A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother. Are We Connected? Prayer for Today: Father, please show me the people who are connected to me no matter what happens. In the name of Jesus … Amen!

Scripture Reading for Today: Proverbs 17:17 & Genesis 17:2

May God Bless you at Your point of need!

Often we try to separate our personal lives from our spiritual lives. Many see Jesus as a way to Heaven and the solution to spiritual problems, but they fail to see that He is the solution to all of life's problems.

Positive mindset is as necessary to your life as oxygen. When oxygen is deprived from you for just a few will struggle, fight, resist, whatever you need to do to stay alive! The simple act of breathing invites life in and sends poisons out. Don't drown in the suffocating grip of negative thoughts, words, or people. Make sure you have the life giving power of positive influence. Get it and keep it!---Pastor A. Wallace

Worry only about the things under your control, the things that can be influenced and changed by your actions, not about the things that are beyond your capacity to direct or alter. ~Charles E. Hummel

Slipping Into Other's Shoes

Ever notice how easy it is to make negative judgments about other people?

Whether it’s “idiots” we encounter on the road … or “slower than slow” people who serve us … or “losers” who can’t play sports nearly as well as our kids can – many of us have developed the knee-jerk habit of assigning degrading labels to people we don’t know. We don’t really know them, or their situations, or their challenges. But we sure as heck know what they should do. Or at least that’s the way it seems when we spout out phrases that begin with:

They oughtta … Why don’t they just … It’s easy – all they need to do is ….

Nope, we don’t know those folks, but we know what they are; we’re not in their situations, but we know what they should do. Hmmmm. If all that seems illogical, unfair, presumptuous, and disrespectful to you, you are right. And if all that seems like terrible behavior for leaders to exhibit, you are doubly right!

To be sure, situations involving other people – including those that occur in our teams – can seem clear, simple, and very black and white from where we stand. But we need to remember two things: 1) Unless we’re dealing with (or have dealt with) the exact same circumstances, we’re on the outside looking in, and 2) The real world is rarely black and white – it’s usually shades of gray.

Yes, leaders at all levels need to remember those truisms. More importantly, they need to apply them! That requires less presuming and more understanding. It’s about making an effort to see things through the other person’s eyes … about walking awhile in his or her shoes. And that is called EMPATHY – a critical component of quality leadership.

Changing Conditions

When conditions change for the worse, there is no need to despair. For you have the ability to respond. With every new problem there are plenty of new opportunities. Every setback represents a new starting point from which you can raise yourself to higher levels of purposeful achievement. Just because things have changed is no reason to give up. In fact, that makes your worthwhile goal even more valuable. There is always a way to get where you have chosen to go. Each challenge gives you new ways to add value to your dream. Always, life is overwhelmingly abundant. When conditions change, you have the chance to see aspects of that abundance that you did not previously know were there. Pause for a moment, take a deep breath, assess the situation, and re-focus yourself on the path you have chosen. Then step boldly and enthusiastically forward with more positive determination than ever. -- Ralph Marston

The Tongue Can Be Your Worst Enemy

Your words, your dreams, and your thoughts have power to create conditions in your life.
What you speak about, you can bring about.

If you keep saying
you can't stand your job, you might lose your job.

If you keep saying
you can't stand your body, your body can become sick.

If you keep saying
you can't stand your car, your car could be stolen or just stop operating.

If you keep saying
you're broke, guess what? You'll always be broke.

If you keep saying
you can't trust a man or trust a woman, you will always find someone in your life to hurt and betray you.

If you keep saying
you can't find a job, you will remain unemployed.

If you keep saying
you can't find someone to love you or believe in you, your very thought will attract more experiences to confirm your beliefs.

If you keep talking about a
divorce or break up in a relationship, then you might end up with it.

Turn your
thoughts and conversationsaround to be more positive and power packed with faith, hope, love and action.

Don't be afraid to
believe that you can have what you want and deserve.

Watch your
, they become words.

Watch your Words, they become actions.

Watch your Actions, they become habits.

Watch your Habits, they become character.

Watch your Character, for it becomes yourDestiny.

The minute
settle for less than you deserve,you get even less than you settle for.

Thought I would share this with you.

In the search for Me
, I discovered Truth.
In the search for Truth
, I discovered Love.
In the search for Love
, I discovered GOD.
And in God,
I have found Everything.

Be Blessed

Watch how your
circumstances and situations begin to change when you change the way you speak.

'Life is like melted butter. . .once things cool down, it can be reshaped!'

Blow Me a Trumpet

This is your day, and this is your Father's world. He created it just for you. You are an heir to the universe. Your only boundaries are your own perceptions of potential. You can reach father than your finders and leap higher than your doubt. If you lift you head and raise your hands, the clouds will run away. You are kissed. Didn't you know it.? Haven't you realized? That's why you are alive to show it. So show up an show off and show out. It is morning!

Never lose that child like belief in the impossible. The fantasies of the faithful dispel the myths of the frightened. Somebody blow me a trumpet! The races are about to begin, and the daughters of God are all dressed up. The have stripped themselves of the cares of this world. They have washed away the abuse of their childhood. They have demanded their inheritance, nursed their won babies, strengthened themselves, and prepared their feet to run.

They are sisters and brothers of the Cross, survivors of the secrets. The have lain awake trembling and even cried through the night. Some have screamed from bruised lips, assaulted bodies, broken hearts, betrayed trust! But what of the night ? That's right, what of it? Haven't you heard? It is morning. Sound the alarm.

Loosed? You'd better believe it. The are loosed from the tragedy of a long and dismal might. They are the sons and daughters of Abraham. They are people with a promise. Precious promises are waiting for loosed people who have made themselves ready to take the kingdom by force. No more forbidden fruit for them; they are taking a bite out of life. No more restrictions or inhibitions. Many have been held back by the fear of failure and rejection. Tell the critics the Father says, "Let My people go!" Only a foolish person would fight a man for his daughter when it is God the Father he will have to fight.

The trumpet has sounded. You are loosed!

God's Cedar Chest

Is your heart broken because of immoral relationships-perhaps incest-that took place in your home when you were young and vulnerable? Women who have a desperate need for male attention have usually come from a s situation where there have been no positive male role models in the home. Since they didn't get enough nurturing as girls, they find it easy to compromise and agree to do anything to gain male acceptance and love.

Millions of women have longed for a loving embrace from fathers who walked out on them or were never around. If you're one of those women, there is a way to fill the emptiness inside. The Lord will fill that void in your life. He wants to be the heavenly Father who will mend your heart. Through His Spirit, He wants to hold you. He wants to give you a hug.

Look for His helpers in the Church. Many men are learning that a woman who is not their wife is to be treated as a sister. Big brothers protect their little sisters' they do not take advantage of them. A brotherly and sisterly love does not include sexual intimacy or self-gratification.

The Song of Solomon shows a progression of the relationship between the writer and his wife. She was his "sister" before she was his bride. Solomon wrote of protecting a little sister. "Enclose her with boards of cedar" (see Song of Solomon 8:9). The Church is God's cedar chest!

God's people are to nurture and protect one another. It makes no difference how turbulent your past life has been, God still cares. Allow Him the privilege of doing what Absalom did for Tamar. When Tamar lay outside Amnon's door-broken and brutally violated-Absalom took er in and cared for her (see 2 Samuel 13:19-20).

The secret of being transformed from a vulnerable victim to a victorious, loving person is found in the ability to open your past to someone responsible enough to share your weakness and pain. There can be no better first step toward deliverance than to find Christian counselor or pastor, and come out of hiding. If you seek God's guidance and the help of competent leadership, you will find someone who can help you work through your pain and suffering. The Church is a body. No one operates independent of another. We are all in this together.---T.D.Jakes

Jesus had no servants, yet they called Him Master.

Had no degree, yet they called Him Teacher.

Had no medicines, yet they called Him Healer.

He had no army, yet kings feared Him.

He won no military battles, yet He conquered the world.
He committed no crime, yet they crucified Him.

He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today.

I feel honored to serve such a Leader who loves us!

God's Blessing is Over Flowing!

Treasure Within You

Something inside of you has been locked up. God wants to unlock it. He knows what gifts and abilities and dreams He has put in you. He knows how to touch them and how to bring them out.
When you get beyond your low self-esteem and stop comparing yourself to other people, and you begin to accept what God has given you, then you are in a position for Him to bring to birth all He has created you to be.
There are things in you that have been overlooked by you, ignored by others, perhaps even ridiculed by some, but God calls those traits His treasure. And He wants to bring it forth.
Every man and woman alive is a treasure chest. Each one holds something God intends for them to use in fulfilling His purpose for their life. And in the process, they will bring Him glory. My brother, my sister, find out what treasure God has hidden in you, because the devil is going to fight you for it. He knows the treasure is there and he wants for his purposes. He wants it bad.
So many people today are fight the devil and don't even know why. It's because they haven't discovered the treasure that lies within them. The devil knows it's there. God knows it's there. So the fight is on.
Your treasure is powerful in God's service, and the devil knows it. What he doesn't know is that your treasure is also a weapon you can use to defeat him in your life. The devil will do anything the can to sabotage your self-esteem. He doesn't want you developing your assets because he doesn't want you to give birth to what God has put within you. Being loosed means that your treasure has been released. It means that the gift has been bound within you has been issued an emancipation proclamation. It means that you are free to blossom and bring forth fruit! When the treasure within you is loosed, you are at liberty to deliver God's purpose in your life.
Now giving birth may require intense effort on your part. You may have to push like a woman in labor. You may have to fill your cheeks with air and push with all your might. So get ready, son and daughter of the living God, and soon you'll hold a treasure in your arms.---T.D. Jakes

People try to keep other people "in their place" so they can control them-so they can lead them to what it is that they want them to have, and to nothing else. When you are delivered by God, you may need to say no to those who have kept you in a stall of their own making.--T.D Jakes

Thursday, July 16, 2009

The Lord wants to speak a word of faith to you. He wants to set you free from every power that has kept you in bondage. In order for that to be recieved in your spirit, you must allow Him to come in and instill faith.---T.D.Jakes

God's Operating Table

When the Scriptures declare that mean "always ought to pray and not lose heart." (Luke 18:1), they are speaking of living in a state of open communication with God, not necessarily jabbering at Him nonstop. Some people ramble on for hours on their knees and end up watching the clock, trying to get in a specified amount of prayer time.

We are called to live in a state of open-hearted communication with the Lord. Complete exposure before Him brings a sense of vulnerability, yet every one of us desperately needs someone t help us. someone who is able to understand our deepest issues.

Since you never think a thought or say a word that God does not hear and know, there is no need for a sanctimonious misrepresentation of who you are. No need for the strain of continual camouflage. You stand naked before Him in the same way a person lies naked on an operation table before surgeon. The patient is neither boastful nor embarrassed, but understands that their conditions is necessary to the relationship. Whatever the doctor finds in her body-either healthy or diseased tissue-is already present, and the patient must rest the conviction that the doctor possess the skill to perform the proper procedure.

Before your heart can be pure, God must flush away the corrosion and corruption that blocks the flow of His grace and mercy. The Greek word for purity, katheros, is the word from which we derive our English term, catheterize. This is a medical procedure used to cleanse, flush, or release fluids from the body. God is continually sending a deluge of His cleansing grace into the hearts of His children. But He can't clean or purify what you hid in the secret corners of your heart and mind.

My sister and brother, you will never worship God in the beauty of His holiness if you live in the shadows, wrestling with unconfused sin. Whatever you do, find your place in the presence of the Lord. He is always there, waiting to comfort and to heal.

Bondage on the Inside

Long after I was saved, I still thought I needed to be delivered from the devil. The popular phrase at the time was "The devil mad me do it." Well, I didn't want the devil to make me do anything, so I prayed hard to be delivered from him.
After a while I realized that the devil wasn't the problem. I stopped wasting my time praying about him. I changed my prayer to, "Lord, save me from me. Please don't let me destroy Your promises with my predicaments. Please don't let me do myself in Deliver me from my own evil tendencies."
Some people don't blame the devil, but they blame other people or a specific person or a group of people. The real issue is this: What matters in the long run is not what people say about you or to you . It's what you say about yourself to yourself.
A spirit of infirmity may not always represent a bondage that another person places on your life. It may represent a bondage on the inside. And you can't walk away from that kind of bondage. It will keep you locked up-until you quit agreeing with the person who has mistreated you or the event that crippled you.
So many people have made it their life's work to change somebody's opinion about them. They are determined to prove that they are valuable in that other person's eyes. Their consuming ambition is to show somebody that they are good, that they are fin Christians, that they are important.
Never allow another person's opinion of you to become your goal. The fact is, some folks might never like you. They many never approve of you r think you're good. They man never change their opinion of you.
If you agree with the person who rejects you or abuses you, the you put yourself into bondage to that person. If you say, "You were right to hit me-I deserved to be hit. You were right to leave me-I deserved to be left. You were right to hurt me-I deserved to be hurt"....then you are tying yourself up with their opinion of you rather than tying yourself into God's opinion of you. When their opinion of you becomes your bad opinion of you, you've built a prison inside your soul with only one prisoner-you. Are you prepared to deal with the fact that the person you've spent your entire life trying to impress may never be impressed? Are you prepared to face the reality that, from God's perspective, it doesn't matter?
If you are going to deal effectively with people in this world, you must be able to work right alongside others without allowing yourself to be controlled by them or governed by their opinion of you. Likely, the deliverance you need most is not a deliverance from the devil or a deliverance from another person. The deliverance you probably need most is a deliverance from some faulty notion you have in your won heart and mind. Be loosed!

The Ultimate Sacrifice

Isaiah 53:4-12

You have been called out and separated by God. You were not created to be popular. You were not called to cliques or clubs. You were chosen to fit in the hands of God who has already accepted you. Insecurity dissipates in the reality of divine truth. How I want you to know the height and the dept of His unfathomable love for you!

Some women or men have never been secure in the love of their natural fathers, and it affects how they view their heavenly Father. But listen to me. There is no doubt about His love. He made the ultimate sacrifice just to prove the authenticity of His love for you.

You are so valuable that Satan held you for ransom, knowing that your Father was so rich! He asked of God, "What would you give to see this woman or man freed?" Your Father sent His Son armed with love and wrapped in flesh. He said, "This is how much I think she/he is worth." Jesus hung His head between His shoulders and died naked on a tree because you mean so much to Him.

Never again insult His great sacrifice by questioning His love. You may not see it or understand it, but believe it. He absolutely loves you. Not just when you are right. He loves you when you are wrong. That is what gives you the power to right the wrongs you've made. He wants desperately to heal the aching heart that has believed the lies of life. You are special and vibrant, full of potential and possibilities. You are the daughter of a King. You are the son of a King. He is the King who spared no expense to pay the ransom that delivered you from the things that held you hostage. Get a clue; catch the hint; you are somebody!

These are the truths He wants every believer to know. There are the words I found in the Bible. It is a living love letter to a dying world. It is a statement of intent from a God who wants you to have it all.

His arms are outstretched. He is waiting for you in the secret place. He will not fail you. Rise up, rise up with a quickened pulse and a gleaming eye. He is all yours, and it is good. A no from His is as sweet as a yes. It is the evidence of His intense attraction to you and His raging love for you. Your life is about to crescendo into a symphony of praise. When His plan crescendos, you will be glad you didn't settle for you own way. He is up to something. Do not miss it!

Proverbs 13:12 (NIV)
Hope deferred makes the heart sick,
but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.

Are you still waiting on your healing, family member’s salvation, unfaithful husband’s repentance, trying to get pregnant or breakthrough in a certain area? Do you think God has forgotten you? Fear not, because He has a word for you today. Just as God kept His promises to Abraham, Isaac and Moses He will surely keep His promise with you.

Whatever it is that you are waiting for or whatever that God promised you don’t give up on hope. We are walking in finished works so freight not, you already have the victory in Christ Jesus. Take your eyes off of man and self and focus them on God. Reposition yourself, put on the full armor of God and dig your heels in the word of God. God knows all that He has for you.
Yes, you maybe hurting, yes, you may want to throw in the towel, yes, things may not seem fair, yes the promise is taking a little longer then what you expected. But know this, we serve a Mighty God. Allow God to perfect what He has placed in you. Don’t despise the process from going to the pit to the palace. Let patience have its perfect work in you. God is building you to last in this last hour. You might even be saying, “Jesus already went through hell, so why do I?!” “Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.” If they gave Jesus the King OF Kings, Son of God living hell on earth then what more do you think you are going to experience. Besides, don’t you want to reign with the Most High God. Are we not ambassadors here on this earth? Aren’t we to set examples of Christ for others to see God’s light and truth through us? No, it’s not always easy, but guess what, “you can do ALL things through Christ that strengthens you!” Philippians 4:13(KJV).

Ask God for more grace and He will give it willingly. Give all of your heart to God for He’s waiting. All the secret areas or hidden sin, and wrong motivate, whatever it is, release it now in Jesus name. Submit all of your concerns, worries, doubts, and fear. And receive His love, assurance, and peace in Jesus name!

Take off the garment of despair, and put on the garment of praise. God has not forgotten you! Speak words of life and not death over your situation. Yes, you are Healed, Yes, you are free and delivered from what the devil has had you bound to. I command the oppression over you to be broken right now in Jesus name! Be free in Jesus name from the lies of the enemy, you are no longer a prisoner. Come out of alliance with fear, doubt, and unbelief and realign yourself with hope, peace and faith. You are the head and not the tail. You are above only and not beneath Deuteronomy 28:13. You are in the final stages of receiving your promise. Don’t give up now. Does a woman giving birth give up on the last push? No! So neither shall you! Receive today and let the words of the Lord recharge you for your promise are here! Now wait on His timing. “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matt 6:33 (KJV). Remember you are not alone for the Holy Spirit is your comforter. Rest in His arms today and allow God to restore your hope.
I love you and stay encourage.
Yours truly,

The Promise Keeper

Hebrews 11:6

God will reward those who keep on seeking Him. He may not come when you want Him to, but He will be right on time. If you will wait on the Lord, He will strengthen your heart. He will heal you and deliver you. He will lift you up and break your chains. He will give you the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness (see Isaiah 61:3). He will keep all His promises.

But you have a part to play. And that part is faith. When we believe God's promises, we are counted as righteous. Righteousness cannot be earned or merited. It comes only through faith. "By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible" (Hebrews 11:3). God wants us to understand that just because we can't see it, doesn't mean He won't do it.

By faith Sarah believed that she could conceive a baby even though she was past childbearing age. She believed that God was capable of giving her a child regardless of what the circumstances looked like. From the natural perspective, it was impossible. The enemy certainly didn't want it to happen. But God kept His promise.

Abraham received many promises from God regarding his descendants. God told Abraham that his seed would be as the sands of the sea and the stars of heaven (see Genesis 22:17). The first promise represents the natural, physical nation of Israel. These were the people of the Old Covenant. But God didn't stop there. He also promised that Abraham's seed would be as the stars of heaven. These are the people of the New Covenant. That's the Church. We, too, are seed of Abraham. We are the stars of heaven. The only thing between the seed and the stars was the woman. Can you see why Sarah had to receive strength to conceive a seed when she was old? When she believed and conceived, God multiplied her blessings.

Whatever God give you, He wants it to be multiplied in the womb of your spirit. When you bring it forth, it shall be greater than what you had. The enemy wants to multiply fear in your life. God wants to set you free from fear and fill you with faith. You must learn to trust God enough to allow Him to come in and plow up your life. He may need to root out closet skeletons and replace them with new attitudes.

Satan has assigned fear to block up your womb and cause you to be less productive than God wants you to be. Don't be afraid. You are God's. No matter the desire or the blessing that you seek, God has promised to give you the desires of your heart (see Psalm 37:4), and He always keeps His promises!

Testimony of Venus's Dreams

Read Venus's testimony .

They say “When you have a dream, hold it tight”. I say, “When you dream, don’t let go of it, but hold it loosely.”

"I am a person who likes a million things, wants to be a million things and dreams about a million things. In other words, there is really no dominant thing that I want or dream about. I sometimes think its dangerous to think or desire that way. But it is amazing how God surprises us.

Surprise # 1: A few years back, about 2005, I desired to travel. I love the beach, the sand, the sun and the water. In my country, we have great beaches. One of which is found in the island of Bohol. Bohol is a very beautiful place, but also very expensive. So I started holding that dream tight, - saving, finding another job, and always setting my eye on that goal – GET to BOHOL!But nothing happened. Things worsened. I lost my job, I have not saved a penny and the chances of getting to Bohol slowly dimmed.In 2007, I volunteered to work for my city for less than a year, the government offered us a department outing. And yes!!! In BOHOL – all expenses paid!! And the best part is? I went there twice in one year!!! My cousin, got so heartbroken that she wanted to getaway somewhere, she dragged me along. And yes – it was also an ALL EXPENSE PAID TRIP!

Surprise #2: When I went to college, I stayed at an Uncle’s house in Manila. My Uncle is a very driven and motivated person. He would feed on John Maxwell. I came to love Maxwell too, read his books and listened to him. I wanted to be a speaker.After college, I was asked to speak in a lot of youth camps, tell stories to kids and lead some youth groups. The stage was my throne. I knew very well, speaking is what I am good at.But in my country, and with the career that I have, being a public speaker is only on the side. I mean, I don’t have masters, I have no credibility ( I couldn’t count the times I was asked to speak about love and courtship.. hahahha!!), I have no connections.But God made the events in my life so twisty I lost some confidence is speaking and lost that prowess on stage. Then my employer sent me to join the Toastmasters’ Club. The club’s curriculum helped me a lot , inspired me and gave me hope of recuccitating my dream.Last week-end, I won the Humorous Speech Title – District Level. That’s NATIONALS!!!! I believe I am a good speaker. But a humorous speaker????? I am so way far from being funny! But, well, that’s how God surprises! It was an experience of being nobody to being celebrity! People took turns having photo ops with me, congratulating me, some gave me their card, there was one who asked me for a dance (which I declined! Hahahah). Unbelievable!!!

Surprise #3: My now ex-boyfriend was my high school best friend. We have been best friends for years and years. It only ended when we broke up. It was painful to lose a boyfriend, but it was more painful to know that my best friend went along.Words were said, things were done. I forgave but he couldn’t forgive himself. I had hopes of being friends with him again. I dreamed of the day when we pick up where we left off – as friends. But he kept telling me , not just once, but many times over that “we would never befriends again”. Last weekend, I was in his city. We talked and he poured out his heart to me like he used to. I gave him the same stern comments I use to give him. He gave me this unbelieving look he used to give me. We laughed. We were silent. We embraced. We fought. We are friends again. And yes, purely friends again!!God is a God of Surprises. I keep singing Jars of Clay’s “Eleventh hour”. My favourite line is “I won’t give up on giving you a chance to blow my mind”. I had dreams. I tried running after them but they were elusive. Only when I gave up and held them loosely, did I see them fly. Only when I surrendered and told God to take charge, did they come to reality.Dreams should be sanctified. WE need to align them to the will of God. So I say, don’t let go of them, but hold them loosely.Isn’t it sweeter when you let go of something and then it comes back to you on its own, and fastens its hold on you? And then, it is the Dream that doesn’t let go of you.
Surprise # 4 is on its way. I know it. I just know it by heart!."

When Go Says No

Job 23:10

Some of the greatest challenges to our faith are those moments when we must endure that cold blight of a disappointment. The greater the anticipation, the greater the disappointment when we fail to receive what we have anticipated.

I know firsthand the sinking feeling of dejection that comes into your heart when things fall through. It feels almost as though an earthquake has struck in you heart. The very things you were counting on the standing on have slipped from under you, and something inside you begins to sink. The floor gives way, and everything you have planned seems meaningless. The temptation is to have an all-out pity party-complete with candles , cake, and ice cream!

There is no shield that can keep away the days that come teach our hearts submission to God's will and purpose for us. There are no cards that are so poetic, no roses that are so fragrant that they dismiss the tingling sensations of brokenness that come upon us when we see our expectations cave in. It's a feeling that will bring the most mature person into a fetal position. It comes as if it will not leave, but you can be sure that is not so. It will go, and the sun will come again and rebuke the clouds that have hidden the light of God's purpose from shining through to you.

There is within the human capacity a tenacious survival instinct that kicks in when we are at our lowest. It enables us to succeed through the storms of life. The will come, but they will not overthrow you if you learn to trust God even when you can't trace Him.

He is so wise. He knows the greater truths that can only be realized by eyes that can behold today and tomorrow in one glance. His vision supersedes our nearsighted requests centered around the thirst of the day and not the droughts of the future. He must, as a good Father, deny requests that would insult the greater destiny He has prepared for those who are His. He is a God of tough love. He has the ability to firmly decline a request when you would be endangered by a positive response. In short, He love you enough to say no! You may not know why you have had to face the chilling winds of despair, but trust His love. Thrust God t renew you. And just live on.

1. Stop sitting on your assets, gifts and talents. Procrastination is a thief. Tap into your creativity, purpose, imagination, intuition, network and resources.

2. Stop worrying. Action and faith speak louder than fear. Thou shall let go and let God. (Therefore do not worry and be anxious.- Matthew 6:31)

3. Avoid distractions, impatience and clutter. Keep the main thing...the MAIN THING. Follow your list of things to do to remain focused, organized and productive.

4. Find a balance between encouraging and helping others in need and knowing when to distance yourself from "energy vampires" who drain you with their drama and negativity.

5. Do the math and count your blessings. Praise God in the good and the difficult times.

6. Develop the self-esteem and courage to say "no" or "yes" when it is appropriate and necessary.

7. Be a good listener and observer. Keep your eyes, ears, heart and mind open. Blessings and breakthroughs can show up in unexpected ways.

8. Build strong character. Serve others (family, community, employment) with integrity and best practices.

9. Continue to seek ways to grow in your education, faith, self-esteem, skills and personal growth.

10. Drink plenty of water, eat healthy foods, stretch/exercise and take good care of your body. Remain active. Remember a sense of humor is healthy. A daily "laughsitive" moves out joy-blockages i.e. toxins, stress, anger and fear.
