Psalm 107:8 (VOICE) May they erupt with praise and give thanks to the Eternal in honor of His loyal love And all the wonders He has performed for humankind!
Beloved, what I have done is more than enough. That’s not to say I won’t do more, but it is a reminder to choose gratitude over greed, thanksgiving over longing. Choose to be content with what you have already been given.
Refuse to operate from a place of spoiled entitlement. There is difference between standing in faithful expectation and pouting like a child because your prayers haven’t yet been answered.
Choose well. Who would you bless: someone you’d already gifted who quickly cast aside their blessing to extend their hand for more? Or the one grateful for your gift and appreciative of its blessing in their life?
You woke up this morning, that is a gift. You are breathing, that is a gift. Look around you, see and acknowledge all I’ve done, for I love My children. Bless Me by seeing and acknowledging the outpouring of that love, by being a grateful child of Mine. Continue reading “Being a Grateful Child of Mine”
Psalm 68:8 (VOICE) The whole world trembled! The sky poured down rain at the power of Your presence; even Mount Sinai trembled in Your presence, the presence of the True God, the God of Israel.
Beloved, never underestimate the power of My presence. It causes darkness to tremble, the dead to come to life, it brings manifold change and tremendous breakthroughs. I AM God Almighty – El Gibbor, the Mighty God. My presences changes things. My presence will change you.
As you stand basking in My overwhelming love, allowing My joy to refresh and heal you – how can you not come away changed? Make the time, be intentional, and soak Me in. Allow Me to saturate you in the oil of My Spirit.
Then prepare, beloved. For the power of My presence brings forth response. It brings about action. You cannot know Me and spend time with Me and stay the same. It’s not that a response is required as much as it is inevitable.
So prepare to take new ground. Pour out your fresh oil with the knowledge that I AM always pouring back into you – just step into My presence and be filled – heart and hands open, beloved, receive from Me – then go forth. Expand the Kingdom.
The idea for this silk began a few weeks ago at church when my pastor was talking about having a “hearing heart” and was connecting it to the scripture in 1 Kings that is the foundation of this silk. It percolated for a couple weeks with God downloading bits and pieces here and there, birthing a new anointing oil in the midst of it, and finally bringing this forth. The name of this silk is Hearing Heart. The colors in it are:
- Light blue representing wisdom from above
- Purple representing divine authority
- Violet representing mind of Christ
- Pale pink representing compassion
- Silver representing wisdom of Solomon

1 Kings 19:12 (TLB) And after the earthquake, there was a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire, there was the sound of a gentle whisper.
Beloved, I AM the Lion AND the Lamb. The roar and the whisper. The thunder and the gentle breeze. Stay fluid and surrendered to My flow. Be mindful not to try to box Me in, or to say, “He only speaks this way” or “He only speaks that way.” I will not be contained or controlled. I defy definition simply because I AM beyond comprehension. Allow Me to choose the tone, the volume, the message…let My spirit govern the flow – for I see things you do not and have reasons for everything I do.
Quiet your spirit and stay open – malleable – in an active form of waiting; a state of readiness awaiting a word or a nudge from Me. Keep your wick trimmed and your oil ready, for the call is coming and you want to be found ready.
