Life filled dreams with a Messianic perspective

We’re Back!

Well, my daughter and I are back from Arizona.  We did two dance workshops and it was very well received.  What a fun way to minister your gifts and love on people.

When we move in the giftings God has given us, it does damage to the enemy’s camp.  It increases the Kingdom of God and makes the path, for those who hearts God has prepared, to receive the word He has for them.

Move in what God has gifted you with today.  If you have the spirit of prophesy, speak it out.  If you have the gift of healing, speak out healing over those you meet.  If you have the gift of miracles, let them manifest.  (I bet you’ll have a crowd around you!)

Whatever your gift is, let God use you today to change the world.  Isn’t that one of the reasons we are here?

I would love to hear what you sense God has gifted you with.  What things do you see yourself doing for the Kingdom?

God’s Heart

My heart is grieved over how many people don’t know the loving God that I know.  Because of His holiness, many think of Him as intolerant and mean.  Because He is holy, He cannot change.  This is good news!  We don’t have to guess what His will is and what He expects of us.

We are the ones who have to change.  Again, this is good news!  We don’t have to be the same person as we are now.  We can get better and better as we let the Holy Spirit move in us.

Take time today to find out who God really is.  He is better than we think.

Monday Morning Blues

So, it’s Monday.  Are you excited?!  (Monday, Monday, da da da da da da…)  Anyone remember the Mamas and the Papas?

Oh sure, Kim.  Life is real fun every week going to a job I hate, working with people (okay, I won’t say it) and doing things for an employer who really doesn’t give a rip about me.  Sound familiar?  How many of us work too many hours for too little pay and too little appreciation?  Do you sometimes fantasize about going into your employer’s office and jumping on his, or her, desk and sing “Take this job and shove it”?

If you are stuck in this situation, it’s time for a change.  God has more for you than wasting your life in a job you hate.  If you hate where you’re at, then it is God’s way of saying you need to do what He created you to do.  If you don’t know what that is, then you NEED to spend some time with Him and ask what it is you were created for.

(Okay shoppers, go to the blue light special and check into our “Dream Department”!)

Dreams are an indicator of the direction you are supposed to go.  If you have forgotten your dreams, spend time with God and He will start to reveal what they are.

Jonas Salk, the person who discovered penicillin, said, “A dream is a blueprint to your ultimate achievements”.  Use your dreams to go toward who you really are.

Now, wouldn’t that make Mondays look better?

Our New Dog

We have a new dog.  She wasn’t exactly what I was looking for.  Her personality is too energetic and she has bad vices (nipping at heels, jumping on people, having accidents in the house).  But, because I have been spending a lot of time with her, she is growing on me.  She is a very sweet dog and there is not a mean bone in her body.

I thought about how this can apply to people who are not our favorite people.  They do things like, pick their nose, bite their fingernails, have body order, scratch in places you would rather not mention, you know who I mean.  But, when we spend time with them, the Lord seems to change our hearts.  We start seeing others through His eyes and our hearts are softened.

Take some time today and pray for those people who are not your favorites.  Then, when you run into them, your heart may have been changed enough to actually enjoy their company.  Okay, maybe not some people, but at least you won’t run the other direction when they walk by you on the street.

Bless those who are not a blessing.

We’re Almost Done!

When I see the signs of the times, I know that Yeshua is coming back very soon.  All the stuff we are going through now is sooooo temporary.  You know the stuff I mean.  Things like, the toothpaste lid is off again, the laundry is all over the floor, you know all the stuff that is your spouse’s fault.  (Okay, just kidding.)

But, we do go through stuff.  Some stuff is unimportant like the toilet seat lid is up again.  (I think you see the things that bug me.)  And some stuff is much harder, death in family, divorce or children out in rebellion.  All these things are temporary.  Whether we are going through the unimportant stuff or the hard stuff, it’s almost over.  We’re almost done!  Hallelujah!

Keep your eyes on the mark of the High calling of God.  He is returning soon and He has his reward with him!  Oh, people.  If we could really have these words be a reality in our life, it would revolutionize who we are.  God wants his word to be a reality for us.  God is not given to speaking idle words.  If He said it, it is true and will come to pass.

What a guarantee!

Grace for the Day

As I write in this blog, I try to use things that God is showing me in my own life.

We all are a work in progress.  I did something recently that was a mistake and I had to ask for forgiveness.  It is especially bad when you do it to someone who you really care about.  As I said, we ALL are a work in progress.

When we make mistakes, whether they are intentional or not, we need forgiveness and grace.  Forgiveness and grace shows God’s love to others.  At one time or another, each one of us need this and we need to extend it to others.  It humbles us and keeps us sensitive to the Holy Spirit.

If you have experienced this lately, give yourself and others the grace and forgiveness needed to go on.

WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES!  WE ALL NEED FORGIVENESS! WE ALL NEED GRACE!

If we repent, God is faithful to forgive us.  He knows our hearts and wants us to be free.   Don’t keep beating yourself up over a past mistake.  If you have asked God for forgiveness, he does not remember your sin as far as the east is from the west.

Be blessed today!

Whoo Hoo, Here We Go!

Have you ever been in the place where life just seems to get away from you?  You know what I’m talking about, the times that there is too much to do and not enough time to do it.

Right now, I am going through a time like that.  It is the like being on a roller coaster and you’ve just crested the top and now you’re starting to go down that steep hill.  Whooooooooo!!  I don’t know if screaming helps, but it sure makes you feel better.

Today my day is full.  I have a board meeting, I have to take my dog into the vet for a check-up, and I have my dance class tonight.  Somewhere in there, I’m supposed to cook a turkey.  Hmmm, is food really that important?

How is your day lining up?  Are you in the game of life running around and trying to find the ball when all the time the Lord is saying, “Hey, I have it right here in my hand.  Come and get it!”?  You run right by Him and and pray, “God, why can’t I find that ball?”  (Am I the only one who has done this?)

TIME OUT!!  Take a deep breath and see what God is saying to you today.  So many of the things we have been praying about, He has in his hands and we are just too busy.  If you don’t have time to spend with the Lord, you are too busy.  It really is worth it to stop long enough to hear what He says.

The answers are in His presence.

New Stuff

I wanted to let everyone know that my co-host, Matthew Lowell, has started his new Vlog!  We are excited about the changes that God is putting into our lives.  I will let you know when it is up and running.

I think you’ll really enjoy getting to know Matthew.  He is entertaining and funny.  I think you’ll enjoy the honesty and openess he exudes.

Please let us know what you think when they are released.  If you can’t wait, just keep your eyes opened to:  www.awakenrevolution.com    They should be up soon.

Okay, this is just too much fun!

Life Changes

We just got a dog.  Oh man, I forgot how much they need attention.  But, she is a joy and we love her.  It is just a life change for us.

Even small life changes can be a little hard to adjust to.  We all go through new changes throughout our lives and some are fun and some are not.  But, through every change God is there and equips us to cope with the changes.

If you have children leaving the house, this is a change.  If you are getting married, this is a change.  If you have a new job or job loss, this is a change.  If you have a new baby, this is a change.

Give yourself time to adjust to any new changes.  Sometimes we expect things to go perfectly right away and are disappointed when they do not.  Pray each day and ask God to help you to adjust to the change.  He knew it was going to come.  He has already equipped us to succeed and have victory.

Enjoy the process of change.  It is the only thing that is constant, besides the Lord of course.

It’s a New Day

His mercies are new every morning.  Great is His faithfulness.

Aren’t you glad that God gives us a new day so we can start fresh?  We can come before Him through the blood of Yeshua and be clean from all the previous garbage in our life.  He really has set us free.  What an awesome God!

The weather here today in Colorado is beautiful.  It is one of those spring days where the sun is shining and the mountains still have some snow on the peaks.  It is so easy to see God’s hand in the creation.  If the same God who made the mountains and everything that is in this earth can be extravagent with His creation, how much more will He be extravagent with us who gave everything for us to have life in abundance.

Breathe in everything God wants for you today.  Take time to look into His face and see what He will say.  He wants to have a relationship and He misses you when you don’t spend time with Him.

Enjoy your day!
