KEY TO “NOTHING MISSING, NOTHING BROKEN”

 

key

 

When Hunny and I started off on a mini-vacation with our little motorhome, and things began breaking, I remembered Father’s words to me a couple months ago.  “Nothing missing, nothing broken”. It spoke to me of wholeness and completeness and the effect of His presence.

But did He mean more than the completeness of my soul and spirit?  Was that completeness also for our motorhome on this vacation? Or should I begin rationalizing because I live in a fallen world and this is the victimization I must expect?

How can that be?  In my mind, that was like saying “God is good in the spiritual but not so much in the natural because He is impotent in this fallen world”.

That can’t be true because most of us have experienced miracles and power.  We know Father is more than willing to move things on our behalf.  But the success of our prayers often seems sporadic.  So, we search for the constant as we excuse the inconstant. And we remember the scripture that says He will use everything to our benefit.

He will.  That was obvious when the towbar on the car broke and Hunny had to drive the car behind the motorhome.  It worried me because Hunny had been having problems with pain in his hip while riding in the car.  So, I prayed for him every mile we traveled. And Father turned it for our good. The pain was gone and Father gave us a revelation. Pain had come from Hunny’s body alignment. He leaned back when he was a passenger but sat straight-up while driving. It was a simple revelation and yet a miracle. Father had used the situation for our good.

On the last morning, as we prepped the motorhome for the final leg of our trip … another thing broke.  And then another.  They weren’t big items.  Nothing that would cause serious problems.  But suddenly out of my gut rushed something akin to righteous indignation.  I blurted out the words, “That is it!  Nothing else breaks!  This is my kingdom!  And everything here is perfect! Nothing missing, nothing broken!”

But a question hung in the air.  How does “nothing missing, nothing broken” apply to our practical lives?

Then after we got home, Father seemed almost too eager to fling the doors wide open for me to see. He pounced on the subject as soon as I poured a cuppa coffee and sat down at my desk.

He said we had been under spiritual attack which He allowed so I could grasp another of those kingdom keys from Him. Those keys make me an Overcomer.

“Anything is possible if you believe it. Do you believe you can have a life of “nothing missing, nothing broken”? He asked me.

“Father, are you saying we can live without anything breaking?  Ever?”

He reminded me of the children of Israel wandering in the desert for 40 years with Moses.  Their clothes didn’t wear out.

Then He asked me, “Imagine how much better your finances would be if you never had to buy things because the previous one broke?”

Then I saw an aspect of abundance that I hadn’t considered.  And I cringed at the thought of wearing the same shirt for 20 years. But His point was to expose the hole in my purse.  Even as we gain income, expenses increase.  Sure we can blame it on the economy or the government. But, it always seems like something knows we have more money and it sets out to drain it from our hands.  We get $250 in an unexpected bonus, and the next day a tire blows out costing exactly $250. I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s noticed this. And I’ve always thanked Father for preparing us for the disaster.

But what if He is sending blessings that the enemy is stealing simply because I don’t know I can declare “nothing missing, nothing broken” in my kingdom?  What if this theft is possible because I excuse enemy attacks by saying “we live in a fallen world”?

Father reminded me that I have exactly what I can believe in my life.  And when I can’t move that needle closer to perfection, then maybe it’s because I’m accepting attack as normal, and victimization as part of life.

I’m very aware that every obstacle He has allowed in my life proved to be an opportunity for a new level of truth.  It caused me to go to Him for a key to overcome the challenge. Usually, I don’t do well overcoming when I resort to formula prayers and methods. But when I go to Him and get the key. Wha-la!

Father pointed out to me once, that the whole point of this life is learning to be an overcomer.  That is primary.   We aren’t here to endure a fallen world and live as victims in it.  We are here to change the status quo.  Make a difference. Move the needle and bring heaven to earth. That’s what the keys to the kingdom are for.

I certainly must admit that nothing … NOTHING on earth feels so good as when I get a key to an obstacle … and the key turns the lock!

It has nothing to do with working hard to have enough faith.  It’s simply about knowing Father has keys and He wants me to have them too.

I can’t prove to you that this works in my kingdom. All I know is that with each revelation of how the kingdom works, my life seems to become a little more perfect. Drama, turmoil, and chaos that I endured for so long, disappears farther and farther into the past. And perfection permeates everything more and more. Some of our friends don’t get it and they think our words about Father are just silly. But it goes on right before their eyes. And I think they are amazed even when they won’t admit it. Lol.

Yes, something that could have been a horrific disaster happened on our vacation when the tow bar broke. We don’t even know how long we’d been traveling with it that way. And in the status quo natural the car could have easily broken away from us on the highway. But it didn’t. And I believe it couldn’t. That’s because of the Angels and the divine protection we have, of course.

And in addition to using this for our benefit, Father opened a door so the repair may cost us nothing, or at worst, a minimal charge. Of course, just because we’re responsible people, we’ll have extra backup precautions installed too. And they will also not cost us extra.

I suspect that “nothing missing, nothing broken” will go on in my practical life. Simply because I finally believe it is a piece of the kingdom on earth. And I want every piece I can acquire of that amazing existence.

Certainly, I’m going to keep letting my Spirit declare awesome things over my kingdom and I’m going to keep asking for keys that bring heaven to earth. After all, I don’t have a problem living in paradise right here in front of everyone. And maybe I’m not doing it as well as I could be, but I’m doing it better than I used to. That’s progress in the right direction.

So, how will I feel if something breaks? Or something is missing? Will I sink into depression and the feeling that I’m doing it wrong? Nah, that’s not how the keys work. They aren’t my creation. They are Father’s creation and so am I. Whenever the consistent becomes inconsistent, it’s because there’s another key.

The Kingdom is a living thing. It is fluid (you know, like “living water”). And it is Spirit. It’s Alive. And so is everything in it. So, predictability often goes right out the window. And that’s the characteristic that keeps me reliant on Father every time, for every thing. I have come to love living this way. It’s an adventure!

Thank you for joining me on my journey. I love sharing the victories with you and I hope they bring overcoming blessings into your life.

IN THE SPIRIT OF LETTING GO

letting go

 

Back in the day, when Hunny and I were more immature, we’d have some rip-roaring episodes now and then. Father never condemned me for any one of them and as I look back now, I can see His hand in each one. They were how we learned to live with each other, give each other wide berth to be ourselves, and respect the strength we inherently possessed individually.

Honestly, neither of us thought our marriage would survive very long. We were both so strong-willed and assertive. The match was definitely equal.

But we did learn. Sometimes unwillingly.

And we didn’t always go to bed in forgiveness. However, we often woke up that way.

It used to surprise me when I’d turn around and suddenly love him dearly when only moments ago anger had been spilling over. I remember the first time it happened, I resisted. After all, I was mad at him, wasn’t I? Shouldn’t I still be?  He hadn’t apologized.  And he had hurt my feelings.  I’d even cried my heart out.

But my Spirit would insist that I should simply let it go, and let love and laughter fill the space between us again. It was weird. We hadn’t settled anything. Shouldn’t we sit down and talk about this at length? Shouldn’t we hash out the boundaries?

Nope. Apparently, we shouldn’t. According to the Spirit inside me, we should leave what lies behind and step into the Joy and Love that is freely available.  It felt unfinished like leaving dirty dishes in the sink.  But it also felt like release and like lightness shining.

I learned to let go.  I learned to laugh and hug and kiss without knowing the answers to the questions.  And I learned to relax.  No one had to be in control when Love was around.  Mostly, I learned to let Father worry about it.  He’s a lot smarter than me anyway.

I know this isn’t traditional Christian teaching. But this is what we came to know as the resolution to all things. Let it go. Let it be. We weren’t wise enough to fix the inner workings of our personalities and characters. Only Holy Spirit knows what lays at the bottom and how to mold it. So, we let Him do what He does best.

And if the situation required a forthcoming decision, then we were a bit more respectful of each other in the following discussion.

I wanted to share this with you because, just maybe, your relationships aren’t traditional either.  And just maybe you need to hear that it’s OK.  Maybe you too have discovered unconventional means of resolution and healing.  And maybe it is the good thing to do.  The peaceful, loving, and restoring thing.

When Father’s Spirit lives inside us, He is more than capable.  He can do so much more than we have learned.  And we truly can lean on Him for resolution and love.  He is overflowing with it and gives it freely.

Hunny and I don’t live with old resentments or wounds and we have never given much time to apologies.  But if you ask either of us what has kept us through the years, we’d probably answer “Letting go and laughing”.  It’s miraculous.

Thank you for joining me on this journey.  I send blessings to accompany you on yours.

THE LIMITATIONS OF OUR SIGHT

eyes

 

A few years ago, Father began introducing me to the limitations of our sight. It began with flashes into the heavenly realm.  And moved into full blown visions.

I discovered that I may have been seeing flashes all my life but had learned to shut them off, ignore them, and filter them out of my focus.  It’s a process similar to looking at a fly sitting on a window.  Our eyes will adjust to the fly and filter out the view outside the window.  It’s the same process with camera lenses.  We can blur the background so much that it almost completely disappears.

As we filter out input year after year, it becomes second nature.  We don’t realize we’re doing it anymore.  So, when our relationship with Father grows, and we want to see more of what He sees, we ask for that sight.  And then struggle to receive it.

However, apparently, it isn’t a receiving action we desire, but a re-training of a lifelong habit. Continue reading THE LIMITATIONS OF OUR SIGHT

TIME JUMPED BACKWARDS TWO HOURS

time

 

A few nights ago I got up and walked to the bathroom, past my digital clock which said it was 3 a.m.  When I went back to bed, I rolled onto my side where I noticed through the window that the motion light was shining on the fence outside.  And the clock now said 1 a.m!

I stared at the clock incredulously.  Since it’s a digital clock which displays the number one as a straight line, it’s highly improbable that I could mistake that straight line for a number three.

And what critter was on my property that caused the motion light to turn on?  There are a few feral cats in the neighborhood so, I didn’t think much about this detail. Continue reading TIME JUMPED BACKWARDS TWO HOURS

ARE WE PRACTICING THE KINGDOM ON EARTH?

ascension

 

All creation is waiting for the revealing of the sons of God.  It is the one thing that will unequivocally change the way life on earth functions and display the qualities we so deeply desire.

No matter how godly this nation can become, it will never be The Kingdom of God on earth.  It will never be God’s expression of Himself on earth.  And our President can never lead us into that fullness.

Only we can do that by individually pursuing The Kingdom and our Continue reading ARE WE PRACTICING THE KINGDOM ON EARTH?

CAUSE AND EFFECT, and Gravity

Cause and effect

 

Let’s talk about Cause and Effect.  And maybe about Gravity, too.

It’s true I don’t take cause and effect very seriously anymore. After all the years of miracles and favor and such, I don’t expect everything that goes UP, must come DOWN.

For instance, for every financial mistake I make, I don’t have to live in financial hardship. For every virus I contract, I don’t have to be sick. Continue reading CAUSE AND EFFECT, and Gravity

GOD WEARS A PLAID SHIRT

plaid

 

Hunny had a dream in which God wore a plaid shirt and looked like Andy Griffith.  It was an oddball answer to a couple days of illness.  And I want to share it with you because I enjoy the way Father performs uniquely in our life.

Tremendous pain coaxed him to call me home from work but my Hunny wouldn’t concede because he’s a tough guy.   So upon my arrival, we began the process: vitamins, herbs, and prayer.  I tried to visualize him well, but it was a weak vision at best. Continue reading GOD WEARS A PLAID SHIRT

HOW TO LOVE EVIL PEOPLE BY CREATING A NEW REALITY

 

how to love

 

In spite of how far we’ve come as new creatures in Christ, most of us still struggle with how to love evil people.  While Father has been teaching me how to create Heaven on Earth, one tiny step at a time, He recently revealed that creating also has an effect on evil  people and the result makes them a whole lot easier to love.  So here goes some sharing.

HOW TO PRAY FOR SHOOTERS AND TERRORISTS

crosshair-97971__180

Once again, this topic is so important that I’m not going to spend a lot of time prepping you.  Basically, the same approach we used to pray for the police officers is the approach we use for the other guys.

Again, I know you’re frustrated by the shootings that keep happening.  It’s time to stop responding to evil the same way, again and again.  It’s not working.  It’s time to step into The Kingdom and do this Father’s way. Continue reading HOW TO PRAY FOR SHOOTERS AND TERRORISTS

TEST THE SPIRITS part two

test the spirits part two

Can we test the spirits of people who’ve died?  I discovered its quite simple, but we are often held in unnecessary fear on this subject. I had quite a bit of it until Father pointed out that the fear was keeping me from experiencing Him without limits.  I often asked Him not to scare me and He showed me that asking this was based on fear.

Besides the fact that we have all kinds of scary ghost tales built into our cultures, I had my own peculiar version. Continue reading TEST THE SPIRITS part two
