 It’s been a long time since my last post. I have had a lot of changes going on. Good changes, God inspired changes. Sometimes difficult changes. Mostly it’s about giving up self control and realizing I am only fooling myself when I think I can manage on my own without trusting God to take care of all my needs. And that includes friendships.

 Besides holiday cards, I also like to send out a note  to all of my friends. I want them to know how much I appreciate them and am so thankful for their friendships. I also try to keep up via phone calls. I’m not a big fan of texting, it’s so impersonal.  

I always thought getting personal snail mail was important. To be honest I even like getting junk mail. It tells me, “hey the world recognizes you’re alive and  living at this place”. Sometimes I even get a bonus gift or awesome coupon or notice of an upcoming event. It’s part of being more than a microscopic dot in a big atomic pool of life. There is so much going on in this wonderful life of ours everyone wants to be acknowledged for their existence.

I connected again with some friends that have been very busy in their lives. Busy with family and school and work.  And I reconnected with others that have been out of touch with me for awhile. It’s so good and healthy to reach out to one another.

Some have created new things in their lives. God related things. An example of this is my friend Lori. Lori and I have known each other through church and bible study groups and related events. She and I both have a heart for the Lord and for the homeless. I’m presently helping a group in my church here in NY.

Lori tells me she has started a church in Clearwater, Florida. She  also has a homeless ministry  and a dance ministry that she’s deeply involved in. She’s on Facebook if you want to check out her ministries.

The Dance Ministry is called “Hearts on Fire Ministry”, they’re awesome in their Praise and Worship of the Lord Jesus. I took this from her “about” page:

Freedom in Praise and Worship to Glorify God with The Creative Arts

Lately while doing my daily reading of the Word, listening to TV pastors, and also my inner spirit I have been hearing a repetition of encouragements and affirmations.I have been hearing messages of prosperity, wealth, health, restoration and renewal. some examples: Esther 8:2, Genesis 41:41-43,  Dan 2:48, Eccel 2:26, Jeremiah 29:11 (my favorite), Ezekiel 16:53. There are so many Scriptures to back up the blessings offered. I want to be restored, renewed, enjoy increase in my life. I refuse negativity, I embrace the good.

 I  live in a world where being accepted by others is what I once thought  I wanted to be. I thought being and doing what my friends did   was normal. I thought everyone around me was normal. I thought I was not normal so I tried to be “normal” like them . I was in bondage to many things. That’s the right word too, BONDAGE. Thinking I was a free independent person when I was not. Being a slave to money, accepting unacceptable behavior, being a workaholic so that I could attain a certain status or station in my life, being prideful and trying to get by like everyone else was. Doing things I never ever thought I would do. Little by little I was degrading myself, being cut off from what was good and clean and wholesome. I was a wreck, losing my self esteem and self respect. Chipped away little by little. Heavy shoulders, big burdens, ignorant of many things. For all my accomplishments I also kept getting knocked back on my rear. Over and over not knowing why.

I kept thinking God, I’m a good person, why God? Why is this happening? What is it that I’m doing wrong? One thing I did learn through all my trials and tribulations is that God does hear me. I just needed to recognize the answer when it  is presented to me.I had to have my eyes,ears and heart wide open. I had to RECEIVE the answer. It’s like an ah-ha moment. Okay I get it now. It’s not about me. It’s about Him. He’s my father, my Abba, my daddy. Like no father I ever had before. With Him I can do so much more than without Him. 

Thank God that I have been found and saved. Saved from myself, from sin, from Satan. I was a very lost sheep. Faking my way, hoping the next big catastrophic event would not spiral down to the pits of despair, desperation, helplessness and homelessness. I had incredible stress in my life.

It took awhile but  I am so thankful for who, what and where I am in my life. I have had many changes and losses but the  next changes, the good ones, the positive ones, I look forward to.  I have good Christian support systems. I try on a regular basis to do what I’m supposed to do in my  Christian life. Some days are more difficult than others. It’s not easy trying to live as Jesus wants me to live. But through Him all things are possible.

I believe in the messages, the affirmations of wealth, health, prosperity, and restoration. They don’t necessarily mean that I’ll be monetarily rich. I believe they mean that I’ll be a lot better off than I was before, when I was lost.

Blessings, Mary

The break between Bible study classes was brief since it was  the summer session. I thought the next set of classes at the School of Discipleship, was going to be very interesting, right up my alley so to speak. The first one was The Holy Spirit (Pnematology) Class, immediately followed by Book Of Revelation Part 1 Class. Never realizing how intense they could be right from  the start, I think I overestimated the workload. I decided to get on track asap. My usual routine was to take written notes and sometime during the week, type  them out and place in a binder.Noticing the extent of the notes I realized almost too late that I had to get a typing routine established more quickly. no more “Ms laid back in her homework or class assignments”.

These were two heavy duty studies deep into the biblical meanings of who, what, when , why and where of the Holy Spirit and the Book of Revelation. Lots of research, which I love, and answers to my many questions. Pastors Mary Kiegel and  Estell Keshock are awesome teachers. Making the Bible come alive. My brain visualizes descriptors and along with my imagination I can picture how it all was and see what will be coming according to His word. I can tell you that studying and reading up on Revelation is kind of a scary thing for such a visual type person as myself. I was actually drawing sketches of each Scripture and Word. Have you ever done that? When I looked back at the drawings, as simple as  they were since I am not artistic , Revelation had a whole new meaning to me.

I thought the first part was scary regarding  the seven churches, the seven seals, the Trumpets, the Angels and the locusts  were terrifying. Scary bugs, omigosh. Bugs from Hell, Demon bugs, ugh! That was only the first part of the Lords Wrath also known as  the FIRST WOE (Rev 1-9:11)! Geez Louise! If you can’t figure out at that time that it’s going to get worse I don’t know what to say to you. It gets MUCH WORSE(Rev 9:12-18)! Even so people don’t repent. What’s with that? It goes on again describing God’s Wrath getting Much Much  worse. Are you kidding, people are still not believing and repenting? I guess they are waiting until the very end to see if it’s for real or not.

Satan being the Great Deceiver he is, many will be corrupted, captured, corralled, cajoled, blinded, and well, deceived. By the time Rev 19 rolls around the world is in for quite a surprise.

But is it really? Hasn’t the Bible been faithfully telling us all what will happen in End Times? Have we been faithfully reading the Bible? Do you know that it is still to this day the best selling book in the world? I think we need to take it off the shelf  and get into a daily routine of reading it.

As for my classes I will be a diligent student and try to be a good Christian, doing what Jesus wants me to do. I might not always like it but He is my Abba  Father and I will be obedient to Him. I surely don’t want to be around for all  this nasty stuff coming, I prefer to be in Heaven, not in Hell or the Hell earth is going to become.where do you want to be?

Pick an H, Heaven or Hell!

Thanks Pastor Estell for  the use of your slogan.

Blessings, Mary

  Sunday I was doubly blessed to be able to attend two great worship services. The firstone at Calvary Chapel Worship Center, my regular church. The second one at The Daily Transformation Ministry where we had our Tea Party and also where we’re having a “Soaking Service” in ten days. That’s going to be awesome. A lot of people are really excited about that.

Pastor Strayer at Calvary Chapel Worship Center  always gives great sermons, awesome teachings. The kind that hit home. I’m sure many people were convicted in his teachings.

After the service at CCWC  I went over to hear Marisol preach at the Daily Transformation Ministry. Wow, it was getting hot in there. You could feel the Holy Spirit move through the place. Her husband Todd was doing the Praise and Worship and it was awesome. I discovered that he actually wrote some of the songs. What a gift!  The anointing was all over the place. I felt blessed to have the opportunity to witness to all the wonderful teachings and anointings. God is certainly moving in  these churches. After the Service, lucky for me it was Agape Sunday again! Who hoo. The food was wonderful and the fellowship was terrific as always. I am looking forward to the  fellowship and worship in the future at this very special church.

Don’t forget to come see all of us on Friday, July13, 2012 at 7 pm for the “Soaking in the  Holy Spirit Fountain  of  Fire and Healing.” at the Daily Transformation Ministry. Look for the links to their Facebook pages in my link section.

 Pastor Estell is having a service at The Daily Transformation Ministry on July 13, 2012. It will be a “Soaking in the Holy Spirit Fountain of Fire and Healing” ministry service. Thank you Pastor Freddy and the parishoner’s  of The Daily Transformation Ministry for having this service in your church. See link section for address and website of the church.

I have been listening everyday to the music from the website http://www.soakingwithapurpose.com. Wonderfully relaxing and fulfilling spiritual music. Please feel free to check out the site. If you know of other sites please let me know so I may share them on this blog.

I am anticipating going to this special service. I am believing it’s just what I need to fill me or re-fill me with the Holy Spirit.  I just want to seek more of Him.

A description of soaking was borrowed from the soakingwithapurpose.com website:” soaking is an intimate time where we place ourselves in a posture of rest in the Lord’s presence while listening to anointed music created to impart to our spirit and bypass our mind.”  What a beautiful way to describe it. To also have Healing along with the Fire of the Holy Spirit sounds like it’s going to be a powerful service indeed! I am so looking forward to it.

I think I will get there early enough to get a parking spot. Sounds like it’s going to be a full house, awesome.

P.S. The address for The Daily Transformation Ministry is 7425 Orchid Lake Rd., New Port Richey, Florida.

Today was such a wonderful day, we had our Tea Party. S.O.S ( Shedding Our Silence) womens group and Daily Transformation Church in New Port Richey, gathered together to teach and socialize on “The Beauty Within”. Pastor Estell  taught on the comparisons between our growth in Christ and the growth and release of a caterpillar from larvae, cocoon and finally a  butterfly of many  beautiful colors. We had good teaching,  Praise and Worship, music, fellowship with many sisters in Christ. The group effort in setting up the night before and the final arrangements prior to the Tea are depicted in the many pictures. It’s so nice when everyone can work together for a common goal. The Tea was a big success thanks to all who assisted, participated and collaborated. The table settings were nicely done with just the right feminine touch. The was a large variety of teas to choose from and a drawing for lovely baskets.

A big thank you to Pastor Freddy, Todd, Marisol, and the parishioners  from the Daily Transformation Church (see their Facebook  link in link section). Thanks also to all the lovely ladies that came to our Tea Party.

I hope we get to see you at our meetings on Wednesdays at Pastor Estells’ home from 7pm – 9pm. We also have a few more functions coming up, that you might be interested in being a part of.

After all being a good servant is one of the things Jesus wants of us. We need to be more obedient and not disobedient to the Lord. If you don’t already serve somewhere please consider doing so. We need to be part of the bigger picture and serving the Lord is certainly a good way to do just that.
