Just so you know…

I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth…and just so you know…I can still type and all that jazz…

Just so you know…I posted over at the “hormone site”.

The weekend was FULL to overflowing with projects and grandchildren. What was your weekend like?
There is a verse that I shared at the “Steppin’ Out Retreat” in Lake City a couple of weekends ago, I want to share it with you now—

“But these things I plan won’t happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, do not despair, for these things will surely come to pass. Just be patient! They will not be overdue a single day!” Habakkuk 2:3 (TLB)

Do you have a vision in your heart or mind that you feel burning to be released? I have for years! My desire is to share Jesus—in every way I possibly can. To be used for HIM—until I am used up and spent for His glory!

As I drove home one day two weeks ago, I found myself praying, crying out to Him and really just amazed that He could find a way to use me! (Isn’t that just like us…pray to be used and then be surprised when He calls on us!)

I asked Him quite plainly, “why Lord, couldn’t You have used me when I was cute and skinny?”

His reply startled me into a flood of shameful tears, “because dear girl, you were too full of self”.

No, He didn’t speak audibly, but when He speaks to me—it is a voice in my heart that I recognize—simply because I listen. But that was not always the case.

As a matter of fact, I can’t count the times I ignored the pull, the tug, and the voice of the LORD trying to lead me from disaster. But rather than listen and be saved from a pit of sin, I ignored that loving Hand and walked full on —head on—willingly into the pit of slavery and sin.

Today, the Voice calls. I pick it up as quick as I possibly can. I don’t have to check “caller i.d.” I know His voice. He is reminding me there is still much work to be done on me.

Be certain, He has ways of working —to remove all of you—and replace it with all of Him. It can be painful. The realization part as well as the actual “working it out of us”. It hurts to know we have failed Him. What’s more—to know that it could have been avoided.

My desire is to listen—to hear Him–and to act on what He says. I may not be able to see the outcome—but I must trust. That’s part of what this retreat is all about. Listening—obeying—trusting.

You don’t have to be a blogger to join in the sessions. If you feel the LORD calling you into an area of ministry–this retreat is the place you want to be.

After an e-mail this morning, and a phone call this evening, with two different speakers that will be here to share—the fire is alight afresh in my heart to give you the opportunity to receive from HIM all that He has to give you through this event!

If you have FAITH to believe He’s calling you…put some action into that faith and join us. I promise you —-the anointing will fall—the sessions on faith, freedom and taking the land for HIM will fire you up to do more—be more—say more than you’ve ever experienced before!

Seek Him about coming to the event. But whether or not you join us, seek Him to speak to your heart. You can hear Him if you listen close.

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any [man] pluck them out of my hand.” John 10:27-28 KJV
