Love You More: Charming but also too dry at times.

Love You More:  The Divine Surprise of Adopting My Daughter by Jennifer Grant

This is a story of a woman and her family's very personal journey into adopting a daughter from Guatemala.
Its unusual because you don’t expect someone with three very young children wanting to go into the process of international adoption. The book tells of her family life, friendships and some experiences of her life before adoption. She also touches on the presence of God through out this particular walk. She shares much of the process ; the paperwork, scrutiny and then the toughest of all “the waiting” for that child to come “home”. Then the bonding part of their relationship begins. Mia with her new mommy, daddy and brothers and sister.

I would recommend this book to anyone considering adoption. She helps take off the rose colored glasses that she admits that she had on. 
Also listed in this book were good resources; she definitely did her homework. 
She also had an unexpected but helpful short section about miscarriage; which she experienced.  
This book was eye opening in the area of how big the numbers of orphans and their living ( surviving) situations are.   She also touches on “ okay, you can’t/don’t want to adopt ?” then help in other ways; and then she listed a few ways to get a person thinking. Jennifer handled that part with wisdom and kindness. The only thing I disliked about the book was in a few sections it got long winded and dry with too many details; until it got back to her interaction with people in the story. 

I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255

Praise brings Jesus into it......

When Praise goes up,
the Blessing comes down.
Praise becomes the prerequiste
to your Miracle.
Praise brings Jesus into it.   T.D. Jakes

If your facing a dilemma, praise Him.!
If your in a valley, praise Him!
If your going through a storm, praise Him!
As  you praise Him,
-Jesus- the  Living Word of God
will walk right into your dilemma
and say, " Let it be so!"

will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.

Looking for 2 more pictures- about 2 more friends! 

Why rush ahead, since you don't really know where your going? But there is One who does!

Yielding to the Holy Spirit means you stop,
 and allow Him to proceed before you:
 then follow Him.
 Notice you’re to follow Him,
 not go ahead of Him.
He is your guide
and in order to get to where God has called you,
 you must yield to His leading.

A Thought Provoking Statement:

If.....  faith (for healing) comes by hearing
then how does sickness come?  
Joeseph Prince

My note: Is it possible that ONE of the ways it comes is we "hear"
it by fear?

Holy Spirit Influence

Holy Spirit Influence in 5 areas:

#1-He sets the stage for the Word of God.
#2-He separates & declares.
#3-He gives new birth to buried seeds.
#4-He wrestles with us to bring us to a deeper commitment
#5-He seeks a place to rest in authority.

Another interesting paragraph:
As Holy Spirit wrestles with us, another influence is always present-
" I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. 
  For I delight in the law of God after the inward  man;
But I see another law in my members; warring against the law of my mind,
 and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members"
Romans 7:21-23

Also Job 1:6:
"Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves
before the Lord, and Satan came also among them. "

The spirit of lawlessness always tries to lead us AWAY from where
Holy Spirit wants to take us.
If we heed the second force, he will bring us into captivity.

"Release your Destiny,Release Your Anointing

One of many..with a poem that is heart breaking..

Dogs needing homes

Dogs needing homes..
Texoma area/north texas/southern oklahoma by
Gina Gardner Adams presented on
Ricochet's Animal Rescue & Resource Page on

Here's the "poem" that HURTS:

"Unseen they suffer
Unheard they cry
In agony they linger
In loneliness they die."

This is so true for the animals that we see
listed here for rescue BUT
how much more so for people
who need rescue because
they too are experiencing
what this poem talks of ?

Stop Being Agitated!




Agitation is a distraction used by the enemy

and is designed to rob us of our joy.

We must refuse to be agitated.

In Creflo Dollar’s revealing series

 Stop Being Agitated,

you will learn how to overcome agitation

in order to remain peaceful and joyful at all times.

The choice is yours!

to some of this teaching

on video or audio.



** *To those called with the gift of healings:***

If you want to be anointed to heal the sick,
 you must continually consume the Word
 as it relates to healing.

 Once that Word on healing
 becomes established as true and possible in your heart,
you will walk in the power to overthrow spirits of infirmity
 (Luke 9:1-2).

In some ways its GOOD 2 B child-like

We need to remain childlike.

Smack Dab in the Middle of God's Love- okay for really young children

Smack Dab in the Middle of God’s Love by Brennan Manning & John Blaise.
Illustrated by Nichole Tadgell

Smack Dab is a children’s book with very cute, understandable title that maybe some one's own grandparent might have come up with. The story is one of a couple who express love to each other and those around them; everyone gets the overflow especially the children. The story always comes back to the theme of being smack dab in the middle of God’s love regardless of anything a child might think would disqualify them. This children's book is meant for very young children being introduced to the truth of God being our loving Father.  

This is the first time I have ready anything by either authors, and although I am on
the look out for Christian materials to share with the kids in my life, this one seemed just a little too bland. I did like the fact that another culture was represented in the story but still was looking for a little more substance. The Illustrations, were beautiful, that was something that I really enjoyed. Would I recommend this book to someone else? I’m not sure that I would unless they are looking for something extremely basic with pictures that the children could really enjoy.

I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade
Commission's 16 CFR 255.

A study of the Fear of the Lord


Who is Holy Spirit to you? How much of you does He have?

Tapping into the power
 of the Holy Spirit
 is the key to living a sin-free life.
 You can’t live your Christian life in your own power
because you will inevitably fail.
The power of the Holy Spirit is your key to victory.

The Lord Gives.

The Lord gives his people strength;
the Lord grants his people security.

Psalm 29:11 NET

Patterns to triggers of Insecurity

Some get really defensive or display false arrogance.
Some binge.
Some immediately retreat & withdraw.
Some drink Or grab medication to numb the feeling
Some shout and go into a rage.
Some subject their loved ones to excruciating interrogations.
Some grow completley cold & become punishing.
Some cry hystrically & beg for acceptance & love.
Some turn to compulsive self gratifications: pornography, danger, self-mutliation.
The list could go on & on.   -

Looking for a Bible Passage?

Here's a good place to check out: Bible Gateway

Praying Frog

Enough said?

God's Prayer Warriors by Jesus Daily

Could they be say praying:  Oh Lord, Deliver me" ?

Change your Atmosphere's

Choose one:
Worry or Prayer.
Anxious or Prayer.
You can't do both
and be effective.
Another way to look at it is:
You can worry OR
you can trust God.

This is not even addresssing the fact
that worry is sin.
Because God says DO NOT worry.
DO NOT be anxious about....
All this sprang out of the teaching Pastor Randy
gave @ Spring of Life Community Church.

A White fish..
I think that's what is also needed for the fish tank

you can be sure the Holy Spirit is on the scene.

How Towers of Lies are Built......then destroyed

"Strongholds are first established in the mind;
 that is why we are to take every thought captive.
 Behind every stronghold is also a lie-
 a place of personal bondage where God's word has been subjugated
to any unscriptural idea or personally confused belief that is held to be true.
Behind every lie is a fear,
and behind every fear is an idol.
 Idols are established wherever there exists a failure to trust
 in the provisions of God that are ours through Jesus Christ.
Some of the weapons that pull down these strongholds are:
God's Word (Heb 4:12,13), the blood of the Cross (rev 12:11),
 and the name of Jesus (Mark16:17).
 Strongholds are pulled down and
 confronted bondage is broken
 as these spiritual weapons of our warfare are employed.
 (See eph 6;13-18).

Friendship Flowers

"A friendship can weather most things
 and thrive in thin soil; but it needs a little mulch
 of letters and phone calls
and small, silly presents every so often
 - just to save it from drying out completely."

Its War, I tell you!

This morning the Lord brought back a phrase that He had spoken to me to meditate on several days ago::
" God's enemies are my enemies."
It brought with it the feelings of I will fight for God against his enemies,
thinking the devil and his dark works.
True but there's more!
Well Surprise!  Guess what?
  This morning Holy Spirit brought to mind the word "Enmity" that led to the scripture about there being enmity between the flesh & the Spirit. the next word I heard was "that means enemy". When I looked up the scripture Galatians 5:17 and compared to the word enmity in the dictionary- the very fist thing the dictionary said was "see: enemy"

So Gal 5:17 in the Amplified says: "For the desires of the flesh are opposed to the [Holy] Spirit, and the [desires of the] Spirit are opposed to the flesh (godless human nature); for these are antagonistic to each other [continually withstanding and in conflict with each other], so that you are not free but are prevented from doing what you desire to do."

The dictionary also says: The bitter attitude or feelings of an enemy or of mutual enemies, hostility, antagonism.

SYN- Enmity denotes a strong settled feeling of hatred whether concealed, displayed or latent (dormant, long time in our memory).
 Hostility usually suggests enmity expressed in active opposition, attacks, etc.
 Animosity suggests bitterness of feelings that break out in open hostility.
Antagonism suggests the mutual hostility or enmity of persons or forces, etc.

oh my gosh, its worse than I first thought. My flesh is an enemy to God. My flesh is at war with God! Never quite saw it like that before. CHILLING. . It really is all out war- in the inner realm as well as the outside world. . Which then led me to Romans 7:23 and 1 Peter 2:11; they talk about flesh wars.
It sure explains alot esp. when it comes to the unruly feelings that erupt.

Inner & Outer war.
Sure explains alot.
I'm not getting it confused, God loves me.
 I'm not the enemy.
But my flesh ways sure are.
Also ran across the scripture about don't look here & there for the kingdom
saying there it is or here it is, the kingdom of God is within you - but hey
I think thats a whole 'nother part of the adventure.

I Will Send My Wind to Bring Clarification ....July 2011

Eileen Fisher:
"I Invite You to Come Out of the Wilderness"

The following corporate prophetic word was given by Eileen Fisher on July 5, 2011 during her weekly Prophetic School of the Holy Spirit meeting in Colorado Springs, Colorado:

The Father would say, "I have called you each by name. I know each of you by name. I know where I am taking each of you by your name. I know where I have brought you from, by name. I know that I have written your name in the Book of Life. I know that you are hidden in Me, and now I ask that you allow yourself to be hidden in Me.

"I have placed you in My heart and now I would ask you to lay down all – all that would distract you from enjoying the pleasure of heart to heart. As you come to minister to Me, heart to heart, spirit to Spirit, life flows to and fro: to you, through you, back through Me, back through you. In turn you become living waters upon the dry ground, upon the desert, so that you can walk out of the wilderness flowing in the flow of My Spirit.

"Tonight I would challenge you and invite you to come out of the wilderness of dryness, to come out of the wilderness of trying to control, to come out of the wilderness of restriction to where you have come. You have put restrictions and regulation upon how, when and why I will or will not answer your prayers.

"Let Me answer at the highest: the highest time in the highest way on the highest highway. This is the highway of holiness that I would have you walk on. As you learn to dwell and live on this land and on the highway of holiness, then you will leave the wilderness. The dust will become nothing, but it will be a thing of the past. You will dust your feet and only see the good news on your feet.

Where the Spirit of the Lord is, There is Not Only Freedom But There is Joy

"Tonight I want to cover your feet in good news. I want to bring good reports to you. I want to take off of you the messages of man that have been a burden on your shoulders. I do not want a Bride that is carrying – carrying the burden man would put upon them, carrying the burden they have picked up. Instead, I want you to learn how to rule and reign, but with rest, with wisdom, with discernment, with strength, with knowledge and with joy.

"For I say to you – and I am going to write it on your hearts this very night – My joy is your strength. When you are weak you have placed and put aside the joy of your salvation. When you find yourself getting weak, come back to the knowledge of the joy of your salvation. Let joy be the connection. Let joy be the strengthener. Let joy be the thing that opens the doors and bring us into communication. Recall the days of joy and know that there are days of joy set ahead of you and set upon you. For know where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is not only freedom, but there is joy.

"Be joyful in the presence of the Lord."

"You Will Hear of Winds Across Your Nations"

The following corporate prophetic word was given by Eileen Fisher on July 12, 2011 during her weekly Prophetic School of the Holy Spirit meeting in Colorado Springs, Colorado:

I heard the Lord say, "I am declaring the wind over each of you right now."
 He said, "Stand. Arise."

I want you to stand up right now.
I heard the Lord say, "I am going to touch you.
My wind is going to come into your mind and it is going to
 cause chains of old to be broken so you cannot be tormented from the past
wind of the damage of the tornadoes that have touched down in your life
 and left damage, and confusion, and doubt, and fear.
 I am the same Lord your God who spoke to the sea,
and it obeyed Me and I calmed the sea.

"Tonight, I will send My wind to bring clarification
 and to bring clearing in your thought life to where you can think
 think and know My will, think and know My presence – that I can take
your mind and renew it in My wind: the wind of My Spirit, the wind
 of My presence, the wind of My Word.

"I am blowing away unbelief tonight. Where unbelief would come to rob
you of faith and rob you of joy, I would speak to that unbelief an
d I will say, 'Let My people go!' For I have called them to rise up
on the wings of eagles.
 I am calling forth eagles to run, and to walk, and to fly with the flow of My wind.

"For you will hear of winds across your nations,
 winds that have never been seen, winds man will try to explain away..
 I say it will be the wind of My Spirit, straightening things out
and placing confusion in the plans of the enemies. I say I am looking for
 a people to arise, to declare, to be filled with My wind. When you direct
 the wind of My Spirit, you shall see healing go into bodies
 that people have spoken death over. You will see healing go into minds
 where the mind has tried to trap My people in doubt and unbelief.

"You will see My wind come about you and in your household
and place things in order. I will direct My wind to go into your finances
 and command favor back over your finances. For I say unto you,
you are to declare the favor in the house of the Lord. My wind will
 blow and there shall be nothing, nothing, nothing that can withstand
My wind. All shall bow down because the wind of God has blown it
into its position. Know that if I can walk on the water, I can train you
 and raise you up to walk in the wind of My Spirit," says the Lord your God.

It Has Nothing to Do With Age Nor Gender

The following corporate prophetic word was given by Eileen Fisher on July 19, 2011 during her weekly Prophetic School of the Holy Spirit meeting in Colorado Springs, Colorado:

The Lord would say, "I am lifting up people.
I am lifting up a fresh wind of leaders: leaders who will cling to Me;
 leaders who will declare unto Me; leaders who will follow Me;
 leaders who will embellish My Spirit; leaders who will come forth
singing and declaring My glory. You are able to see the hour of Joshua
come forth. It will have nothing to do with age nor gender. It will be those
who carry a bold and courageous thing in the Spirit.

"I am putting in your hands tonight a new spear:
 the spear of truth, the spear of enlightenment.
I am going to bring you into a practicality of the power of the knowledge
 of My Word. Then you are to apply what I have downloaded into your spirit.
There is warfare to and fro, in and without. I would say it is the hour of settling
 My leaders to where they will recognize and hear My voice.
I want them to learn to draw from My strength in stillness.

"I have joined them at that banquet table.
 That banquet table has been prepared
in the presence of the enemies: yours and Mine.
 But it is a position of nourishment that I have provided.
 On this banquet table is My Word. It is the manna of My Word.
I would invite you to devour the manna of My Word.
When the enemy comes, you will simply serve the manna
 and he will be appalled at the manna. It will be Heaven-sent
 and it will carry with it the scent of Heaven;
 the scent and the fragrance of the Rose of Sharon.

You Will Come to Know Freedom, Freedom, Freedom

"I know many of you have been in the wilderness; I know many of you
 have been in the valley, and it has not even been of your choice or of your decisions,
 but it has been a forced position where the enemy has placed you
 in situations, people, and positions to bring you into a lower place
– not to the high places to feast but to the low places to where
you will examine your wounds and pick at your sores,
 and recall the hurt and reopen the wounds. I heal and I re-heal,
and I re-heal, and I re-heal. Now I want to change that,
 for I want to consume your woundedness in My Blood.

"In the process of consuming your woundedness, I will train you
 and teach you how to do warfare that is effective – much more effective.
It will not be voices filled with hot air and puffed up. Instead it will be voices
of authority, voices that will declare, voices who will have heard and
 have had manna with My Spirit, My Father and Myself.
When Mine come, they will come forth Heaven-sent.
You will become those just as I was, sent by the Father,
 for you are entering into a season of overseeing the vineyards:
the vineyards to where I am coming to plant fresh seed;
 fresh seeds that have been watered by the dew;
the dew that has come from the anointing of My Spirit.

"Be prepared to reap where you have not planted. Be prepared to be sent
 where you know not of. Be prepared to stand still when you
 are on your hind feet prancing around ready to run.
Be prepared to hear the whispers and the sigh of My Spirit.
Pray to know Me: know My heart, know My Spirit, and know My plans.
In this I promise you, by Myself, for there is no greater.
 You will come to know freedom, freedom, freedom –
 for I am raising up overseers and facilitators – but most of all,
 freedom fighters who will fight for My Kingdom but stay free in My presence,"
says the Lord your God. In Jesus' name. Amen

Showing Love- comes in all forms :)


its called ascii art; can't say I'd ever heard of it before.

How could I forget what He REALLY Hates? Part 2

Jesus,.... the very name of Jesus spoken aloud.
But spoken lovingly in/as worship?
he is saying, "foooorget about it"
Did the accent come through on that?
Every time he hears the word of God;
he's reminded of Jesus; the word made flesh.
The Blood of Jesus, the Blood being applied,
The Blood used as a boundary forbidding him entrance;
any remembrance of the Blood,
singing about The Blood of Jesus,
the words, "The Blood of Jesus is against you satan",
heart felt Communion,
people who are no longer strangers
 to their Covenant*there's that Blood again* 
Grrr...he just HATES it! 

Tuesday, August 2, 2011


Wow, pretty strong but I do hate him & everything he does!
The only one I'm allowed to: the devil.
So in view of that & because I love my God
and I hate what He hates..the works of darkness this one does
here is a reminder to self to make SURE I ALWAYS do what the devil hates!
Every time I do something he hates..I just punched him one...
he hates it so I'm going to make sure I do it..esp. when he tempts me not to;
I'm going to remember its because he HATES it.
When I don't feel like praising God; I'll remember the devil hates it. Ok, let's go!
Should help alot when the flesh is talking. Maybe its about that motivation, they are always talking about!   :)
The devil hates it : when I am consistent; being regular; regularly practising what I know & believe.
devil hates it when I speak in tongues or pray for anyone else to recieve this gift.
he hates it when I:  pray, lay hands on the sick, speak or read the word; talk the word to myself out loud throughout the day and sometimes night.
he hates it when I have hope, am encouraged, encourage others, encourage myself in the Lord.
he hates it when I walk in the spirit & not the flesh, crucify my flesh, prefer my brother/sister over myself.
Oh yeah, did I mention he hates me and my family, because we love & belong to God.
***Oh, And he's about to hate me alot more as I remember & push on these things***
he hates it when I tithe *there's another punch*, give offerings, give money in any way to the kingdom.
he hates it when I know & use Authority, remember who I am in Christ Jesus.
he hates it when I Fast!!!.
he hates it when I put on the Armor of God, or put it on anyone else.
he hates it when I obey God, am a hearer & doer of the Word, yield to God, trust God.
he hates it when I pray for our Leaders, 5 fold Ministry, Food Program, Youth, Children's Church,etc.
he hates marriage, my marriage and the fact I still am.  (by the grace of God,oh & he hates that too)
he hates it when I humble myself and when I refuse to grumble.
he hates it when I discern his dark works.
he hates it when I won't be distracted - during worship & other times.
he hates it when I give God first attention, and talk & listen for Him during the rest of the time.
he hates it when I co-operate with Holy Spirit; when He says "change this."
he hates all prophets; he hates me as a prophet, hates it any time I walk in that calling.

Wow, Thank you Jesus, I think I just had a Motivation Shift!!!

B Words

   Parashat Devarim: These are the Bees

The midrash notes the morphological similarity
 between the word 'devarim' (words) and devorim (bees).
The words of Torah can give joy and sweetness
to those who heed them (Psalm 19:10),
but they are a deadly poison to those who do not.
"Just as the honey of the bee is sweet
and its sting sharp,
so, too is the Torah".
Likewise, our words
can be used to build up,  edify & comfort others
or they can be used to tear down,  deliver poison, & cause pain.

Really Living!

When you live only to please yourself,
you are not really living.
 The abundant life God has predestined for you
 is hidden in His will;
 and you will not be able to find it
 until you have released the control of your life
to your heavenly Father.
