Philippians 4:13 (AMP) I can do all things [which He has called me to do] through Him who strengthens and empowers me [to fulfill His purpose—I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him who infuses me with inner strength and confident peace.]
Beloved, I AM greater than you know and your strength is found in Me. I AM filled with seeming contradictions, using the foolish things to confound the wise. So rest in Me and grow strong. In your weakness, My strength is made perfect. You don’t have to be big and strong for I AM, and you have simply to be like Me.
Walk in My ways, follow My heart, and trust in Me – then see what I do. Suddenly the impossible is possible. Don’t discount any possibility because with Me nothing is out of reach. Yield to My will and My plans and you will see Me move through you in ways you couldn’t even imagine. Breathe Me in beloved. Worship with all your heart. Walk confidently in Me.
John 15:4 (GW) Live in me, and I will live in you. A branch cannot produce any fruit by itself. It has to stay attached to the vine. In the same way, you cannot produce fruit unless you live in me.
Beloved, increase comes from Me. Stay firmly rooted. Life can only come from the source. Draw from Me. Drink deeply from My living water – the flow of My Spirit – be saturated in My presence and allow that rich, life-giving atmosphere to bring forth much fruit.
Deep wells pouring forth, gurgling up from deep within you as My Spirit stirs and hovers over you as you rest and dwell in My presence. Behold, I AM doing a new thing, will you not know it? [I sense Him smiling as He asks that as though He knows already of COURSE you will want to know it.] New life – increase – is coming. Increase is here. Continue reading “Increase Comes Through Me”
John 15:16 (GW) …I have appointed you to go, to produce fruit that will last, and to ask the Father in my name to give you whatever you ask for.
Beloved, I have created you to bear fruit – fruit that will last. See with My eyes and hear with My heart, as you do you will know what to ask for and when, and you will know you do so in My name and under My authority. Then watch Me respond.
Be moved with compassion. Hear past the outer layer of a situation to the heart of the matter. Allow your discernment to grow and increase as you cultivate your spiritual senses and tune in more and more accurately to My frequency. Be patient with the process and remember it will always be ongoing for you cannot begin to fathom the depths of Me. Allow My Spirit time and space to move in you. Align with Me. Abide in Me. Bear fruit.
Matthew 4:1 (TLB) Then Jesus was led out into the wilderness by the Holy Spirit, to be tempted there by Satan.
Beloved, do not be afraid of temptation, for I will not give you more than you can handle. For I AM with you – beside you – here to strengthen you when you reach for me. I will always provide a means of escape. No trap set by the enemy to ensnare you is without a means of deliverance.
Change your point of view. Embrace each temptation as an opportunity to build strength, your inner fortitude. See each one as an opportunity to find your strength by relying more heavily on Me that in your weakness My power might be made perfect. My grace is sufficient, beloved. Rest and rely on Me.

John 17:17 (AMP) Sanctify them in the truth [set them apart for Your purposes, make them holy]; Your word is truth.
Beloved, allow yourself to decrease that I might increase within you. Yield to My refining process. Let Me burn away the dross leaving you brilliant and sparkling that you may shine blindingly brightly. This is My sanctifying process. The process by which you become more like Me – more radiant – that your countenance might glow from My glory. Waves of glory!
I have new levels for you. Shifting the atmosphere and opening up heaven to draw you in closer still to Me. Allow Me to gently change you into the fullness of all I’ve called you to be. Give the process the time it needs, the journey itself is a blessing and rushing the process only causes you to miss points along the way so yield to both My process and My pace. I will increase My blessings upon you. Receive it, beloved. Continue reading “Yield to My Sanctification “
James 1:19 (VOICE) Listen, open your ears, harness your desire to speak, and don’t get worked up into a rage so easily, my brothers and sisters.
Beloved, be intentional to bridle your tongue. Resist the urge to vent your frustrations and instead cultivate peace so the frustration won’t come as easily. Like a muscle that can be trained and strengthened, you can increase your ability to hold onto your inner peace. Press into My Spirit. Allow Me to bring you shalom – the peace that wars against chaos – in every circumstance. What you feed will grow. Will you feed the frustration or feed the peace?
Listen, beloved. Hear beyond people’s hurts and pride. Hear what is underneath them. Listen with My ears and hear with My heart. See the wounds and brokenness that cause the behavior. Be moved with compassion. Pray for them. Demonstrate My love instead of reacting to offense. Choose to love like Me, and walk in peace and unshakable joy. Continue reading “Bridle Your Tongue and Love Like Me”
Acts 2:3 (AMP) There appeared to them tongues resembling fire, which were being distributed [among them], and they rested on each one of them [as each person received the Holy Spirit].
Beloved, let the flame of My Spirit ignite your life and your walk. Operate in the heat of My love, and warm those around by radiating it outward. You are a conduit of Me – of My Spirit – and you are surrounded by people who are in desperate need of a touch from heaven. Be My hands, beloved, and be My touch in the lives around you.
Be ready for divine appointments. Be ready for Me to interrupt your schedule with My agenda. Be ready in season and out. Be ready, beloved. Be ready.
This silk came out of a church service a couple weeks back. We have a number of river/water silks already, but God showed me He wanted something new. It started stirring up during the “I Rest in You” song mentioned in the letter (you can hear us singing it in the background on this video) and below is what came forth!
He had me make silks for both ladies who wrote the song and a pair of spin wings for myself. You’ll see some of the pics/video of those throughout. The name of this silk is River of God. The colors in it are: Continue reading “Silk: River of God”
James 1:22 (VOICE) Put the word into action. If you think hearing is what matters most, you are going to find you have been deceived.
Beloved, knowing My word is vital. You know this to be true. And knowing it is useless without putting it into action. Knowledge puffs up. Love takes action. Love chooses to obey and trust. Love chooses to extend mercy and forgiveness. Love seeks to bless and care for others. Love is reflecting Me.
The enemy will always seek to distort My will. He will twist My word and try to bring confusion. Rely on My Spirit to guide and direct, and to bring clarity and discernment. Do not expect perfection because even I don’t expect it from you. Be quick to correct your course if you find you’ve stepped off My path. Repent and realign with Me. I AM patient and slow to anger, and I extend much grace. Receive it and walk well with Me. Continue reading “Love Takes Action”
