Integrity

Today we are talking about a subject which I have encountered many times over these last three weeks, the lack of integrity. The lack of integrity seems to be a growing epidemic in our culture.

My most recent experience with the lack of integrity began about 3 weeks ago when we purchased a new house. After 4 delays in closing and a dismal walk-through, my husband and I were actually stunned by the lack of commitment held by others in a verbal agreement. By both the builder and their real estate company we were given promises that were neither upheld nor acknowledged.

Apparently, I have been living in a bubble in my dealings as I was really unaware that this level of bad character existed. And it appears to come without any remorse or concern. 

What describes someone who walks in integrity?

Heaven’s Think-Tank

I have such an exciting revelation to share with you today. It all began yesterday with a word from the Lord out of Luke 8:10, “To you it has been given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God…”.

And I asked, “So Jesus, what is on your heart?” Immediately, in a vision, I saw the sun setting on the horizon.

Jesus spoke to me and said, “Look beyond the horizon.”

I saw the brilliance of the sun filling the sky, and colored in orange with an amber glow encircling it. Little did I know this would be a continuing vision bringing me to a new revelation.

The next morning, the Lord began to speak to me about the horizon again. “Look beyond the horizon to what you cannot see.”

In the Spirit, I could see the same beautiful horizon in front of me, but this time Jesus was standing behind the sun. I ran toward Him and leapt over the horizon. We stepped through the galaxy into a white cloud – room – like place. The interesting thing was, there were no edges, no corners, just a fluid movement within the room.

Suddenly, I heard these words think-tank in Heaven.

Healing Our Finances

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.

Promise of More 2019 (Replay)

We are entering into 2019 with a promise of MORE! Today, we will talk about how 2018 may have increased your ability to obtain the MORE coming in 2019.

Let’s get started on today’s subject, 2019 Promises More.

The Lord spoke to me and said, “More is just the beginning — 2019 will set the momentum for the next 10 years of breakthrough.”

Are you ready to design 2019 as the template for the next 10 years?

Take “No” Off the Table

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 Take a Risk for God

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

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

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.

1) Who does God say you are?

Turn on the Light!

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.

Uniquely You

“Each of you is an original.
Each of you has a distinctive voice.
When you find it, your story will be told.
You will be heard.”
~ John Grisham 

My online More 2019 group was praying and brainstorming about the strategy for one of the members new business.  Someone asked this question, 

“What makes you unique?”
