Healing Our Finances

Episode 82

Since October 2018, the Lord has been speaking to me about the coming Financial Shift, meaning an increase of finances. We have experienced it in our church, and I have experienced it personally.

What is interesting about this increase is it has not manifested in a single way, but through a variety of different ways.

Let me share one example of a creative way God showed us to bring in income.

We had sold our house and downsized to a smaller one. We realized in this move, much of our furniture would not fit. God reminded me of a friend who does estate sales and I contacted her. We were able to sell all of our furniture and bring in additional income for our move.

I have also realized that God wants us to be healed from our unhealthy relationship with finances in order for us to be good stewards of this influx of funds. A few weeks ago, I taught about Financial Healing. You can listen to the class on the church website by clicking the link: Financial Class.

In this blog, I am sharing a few of the highlights from the class. My goal is to help you get free of any hidden lies about your ability to handle money or being wealthy.

Taking “No” Off the Table

Episode 80

I have an interesting topic to share with you. Today, we are going to talk about Taking No off the Table. I am hoping these illustrations will help you realize how necessary taking No off the table really is in order for you to accomplish your assignments.

The Lord has definitely challenged me to think about the No’s that create roadblocks to my assignments. Let me explain a few types of No’s I have come across. Incidentally, they are all examples found in people in the Bible too.

Like those before me, I had to learn to take my “No” off the table. I have included the references so you can read more about the process each one went through.

Let’s get started our first No.

Confidence to Risk

Episode 79 (Replay)

I am continuing with the series from my new book, God’s Dream for Your Life. Today, we will talk about Confidence to Risk.

This quote by T.S. Eliot will give you a little insight to the direction we are going today.

“Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.”

We are positioned for the impossible every day! This seems like a dramatic statement; nevertheless, it is true. Just as Jesus went around doing good, healing the sick, defeating the enemy, multiplying food, so can we!

However, there are risks involved to walk as Jesus walked on this earth. We have to risk stepping out of our comfort zone, practicing what we have learned and be willing to make mistakes.

One of the reasons this seems risky is because we are experimenting with something new. However, the more we practice taking risks each day releasing all that God has given us, the more we develop our ability to do greater things.

In John 14:12-14, Jesus shares how we can have confidence to risk doing the same mighty miracles He did.

Embracing Our Assignment

Episode 78

I went on a sabbatical for a week to hear from God and prepare for the next couple of months. I also wanted to work through the timing of the goals I had set.

God began to talk to me about my assignment. And frankly, I did think I was doing my assignment. What I didn’t realize is that I had added goals that were good, but did not aligned with God’s assignment.

Immediately, God had me delete three goals! As I looked at the shortened list, a new excitement arose in me. I could see the correlation of the refined, more focused vision.

Since returning God gave me Scriptures, which have empowered me in this journey to stay focused and on-point. He gave me the verses and then an explanation of how to apply these to our assignments.

As I share them, I pray for you to hear clearly and connect precisely with God’s assignment.

What is happening with your assignments?

I Know Who I Am

Episode 77

I have discovered a new song, well at least a new song to me, I Know Who I Am. It is sung by Sinach. Every time I hear this song, I have to dance — I have added the YouTube link so you can dance, too!

This is a song of declaration of who we are in Christ. When we declare the truth of who we are, there is a response. Our thoughts, our emotions, and our bodies aligning with the truth brings a response. Both science and the Bible agree — truth breathes life.

In the very simplest form, Dr. Caroline Leaf describes this process in her book Switch on Your Brain.

“ Research shows that 75-98% of our mental, physical, and behavioral illness comes from one’s thought life.”

What is really being said here is —

The thoughts we choose to think determine our health.

Dr. Leaf continues, “Science and Scripture both show that we are wired for love and optimism, and so when we react by thinking negatively and making negative choices, the quality of our thinking suffers…”    

The Scripture states, “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he” (Proverbs 23:7 NKJV). It is our thought life which determines our capacity. So we must know truth and be able to declare who we are as opposed to the lies.

Turn on the Light!

Episode 76

Today I want to share something that happened to me that was ridiculous! It was definitely my fault, but I realized the incident carried a good message for all of us.

Weather temperatures are relative to what you have become accustomed. Living in Florida I am accustomed to warm temperatures year-round. However, lately it has been windy, rainy and cold all day. Sunday was particularly cold but we went to church that morning and another church meeting that evening.

We finally arrived home around 9 P.M. and I was freezing and decided to put on my pj’s and unwind a little. Well, my unwinding ended with falling asleep on the couch. I didn’t realize how deep I was sleeping until I headed to bed.

I entered into the bedroom with my eyes closed and didn’t bother to turn on the lights. I decided to head into the bathroom before falling into bed.

Next thing I know —- BAM! I ran right into the bi-fold closet door that my husband had left open. My little toe bent sideways and immediately I said to my foot, “Don’t even think about being broken!”

And here is the RIDICULOUS part — for a brief moment I was mad! I thought — Why didn’t he close his closet door?

Then this quiet voice whispered to me —

Why didn’t you turn on the light?

I laughed out loud — of course, I could have turned on the light.

I was telling my girlfriend about my little accident and she said there is a prophetic word in this for all of us. And there is — and it begins with a question:

Why do we find ourselves walking in darkness when we have the power to turn on the light?     

And take note, for some of us the reason is we do not recognize the darkness around us.

Here are 4 Reasons I have found for walking in darkness.
