Decisions, Decisions

Every day we make hundreds of decisions usually based on our worldly programming.  This programming in our heads begins the moment our brains and senses are developed enough in the womb to integrate information and continues until we die. 

The Lord wants me to stop blindly doing what I've learned and follow His advice.  My mother taught me when I was a teenager to put money in my pants pocket so I don't lose it.

So like I always do, I put the twenties in my pocket, but the Lord told me to not do this because I would lose it.  I thought this couldn't happen because I had done this with no problem for over 40 years, so I put it in my pocket.

Unfortunately, when I went to pull my money out to buy my groceries, it was gone.  Sometimes history repeats itself and sometimes it doesn't.

Even with supernatural help, we have to be open to following it and not just do what we have always done.  When we follow our worldly programming, we are not following our Lord Jesus.

Dear Lord, I am sorry that I ignored Your good advice.  Please forgive me and open my mind to Your advice in the future.  Thank You, Jesus, for helping me!  Amen

While my resolution was to be more obedient this year, I found myself quickly in disobedience after making this promise.  I needed a new cell phone, so I went to the store and purchased one.

This had always been a simple process in the past but not this time.  After returning the 3rd phone this week because something was wrong, I realized that I should have prayed for direction.

It is so easy to make decisions based on assumptions instead of being patient and praying for directions.  Obviously God had something else planned for me instead of a simple purchase.

Thank You, Lord Jesus, for my life of adventure!  This exciting life of holy direction is only a prayer away.

A Gift Of Health

Looking back at 2015, there are many experiences that stand out.  One unusual thing was menopause.

After meeting so many women with horrible stories of suffering from going through menopause, I was curious about what it would be like for me, because Jesus takes such good care of my health.  Well, it was very uneventful.

At first I thought maybe I was pregnant but after eight months of no symptoms, I decided it must be menopause.  I experienced no suffering, needed no medication and the only symptom was no menstruating, which was great.

Thank You, Lord Jesus, for Your gift of good health for me.  This free gift is available 24/7 anywhere for everyone through prayer!

A New Year

The Lord told me I was going to be a pastor and start a church.  But I'm thinking this world doesn't need another church.

I attend two very different churches, but I'm not a fan of religion because I personally know God.  I know what He wants for us and how we settle for so much less with religion.

We use ministers, rituals and traditions as a substitute for a close personal relationship with our Lord.  I find this all silly and small.

However, my new year's resolution is to be more obedient, so I agreed with Him.  And since starting a church means I will need more money, I received a check for $500 this past week to put towards it.

Dumping my negativity about church and completely opening up to the Lord's leading will truly make this next year a new one.  Thank You, Jesus, for directing my life!
