God Changes Atmospheres As We Speak

img_0924

Just keep speaking as God directs. You have something to say. But wait, it’s as He directs, not in our timing.

In the speaking, light flows with sound, releasing creativity into the spiritual atmosphere – all through our words. There is a timing for every word released.

Words are important to God for they create, tear down, lift up………

Wait, release. Wait, release. That keeps us in step with Holy Spirit.

It’s time to get in step with Holy Spirit as the heart of the Father and the glorious beauty of the Son is revealed to us, in us and through us. Let’s not run with every word that comes to mind, every opinion, every thought. Let’s wait, meditate and then release. God longs for the word that we carry inside to impart life within us first before we speak it out. We become the message and the messenger.

Don’t run with everything you heart. Sometimes it’s just for you. No one else. Can you carry it until God says to release it? Can you? There are so many words floating around. Do you want to be known as a voice or an echo? Be patient.

When we run with an idea or thought or word that is not fully formed in Christ, it carries no weight in the Spirit. It floats around with nowhere to land.

To speak in the power of His anointing? That’s a different story. Words form within us. God directs their release and there they go, carrying the weight of eternity within them. They carry the sound of heaven. God says, “Let their BE!” And there was…..all because we wait on God.

So be patient. When life is forming within us, we don’t have to know every detail of what we carry. We don’t have to know all the answers or even to explain what we are carrying deep inside.

Misunderstood? That comes with the territory.  So many want something definitive, something they can understand and hold tight. But life is not always like that, is it? Are you carrying your dream? Then wait for the right timing to speak it out. When that time comes, we will be able to verbally speak what is inside, deep inside.

Holy Spirit whispers to many – “Follow. Me! We are going somewhere.” One step at a time.

 

In Christ,

P.S. I am in the process of developing a new web site with a new focus. It is in process. In the meantime, I will continue to post on this site until further notice.  In the future there will be a self-hosted site, separate from this  with a great clarity and creativity of what we are carrying in these times to impart into people’s lives.

What will I do with this site? Perhaps I will keep it going to just flow in random creative thoughts. Still thinking through that now. Thanks for being patient with me.

Turning the Corner Today – Creative Leaders in Christ, Rise Up

Child by WaterI want to speak to creative leaders in Christ, those willing venture outside the box of nominal Christianity to discover Jesus, creatively in His journey for our lives. He calls us ‘out’ to walk with Him in an expression of ministry that will hit the hearts of many who want to know His love, His salvation, His goodness and mercy.

Do you see God moving ‘outside’ the confines of our current definition of ministry?

Let’s walk with Him, step by step in humility and grace. God SYNCS each of us in Christ and into our creative expression. This by itself, moves us out and away from any box of comfortable Christianity. I like to call it creative expression in Christ, walking a true prophetic lifestyle in Holy Spirit.

As I move out, I immediately feel resistance. I face the choice of drawing back or to keep on walking with Him.

After years with this message stirring inside me, rising up and being shut down, today I am turning the corner. I can’t go back into what was. I press ahead. Join me on this journey as I turn the corner into the next phase of my glorious life. I write the story and perhaps you can glean something for yourself in all of this in the months and years ahead.

About 1 year ago, I attended a conference in Flower Mound, TX called ‘Limitless’. Focused on creativity in life, the revelation and impartation was amazing. There were deep times of worship, expression and waiting on God in an environment filled with His presence.

During one particular time, Jesus began to speak to me about the next phase of my life, my creative call.

I heard this……

IMG_9642Travel Scribe

Follow me in this okay? I want you to see yourself in this story.

When God said ‘travel scribe’, my natural mind kicked in and I found NO understanding as to what it meant.

Over the next year, God slowly showed me that it is a creative call, out of the box, defined by Him. It involves moving as Holy Spirit moves, involving travel, photography, speaking and writing. Along the way, we hope to establish a base in Raleigh, NC where a creative culture will be built. (Still mediating on this one as the attacks come telling me I lack everything to do this.)

This ‘travel scribe’ thing? The more I thought, the more my heart resonated with the very idea even though I had no complete understanding. Here’s my spiritual resume:

Travel – all over the world the past 20 years.

Writing through the eyes of Jesus prophetically

Love for adventure

Passion for  journey.

Still thinking how uniquely and creatively this revelation fills the very core of my being.

Next steps – a connection came with a glorious ministry out of Atlanta, GA. Check out the Scribal Conservatory Arts and Worship Center.

Something starts to form on the horizon, so small but something that draws me ever deeper into Christ as I follow along in this journey. He writes the story so I can’t stop to figure out the steps right now or I will be stopped dead in my tracks. I follow Him into what is on this horizon. He does this so as to keep me in sync with His Spirit, not my good ideas.

God wants to move outside the box and overall, change is resisted by the church at large. But, God will change His people and change the church as we know it in the process. I am part of that change? Are you?

God keeps talking about travel scribing, travel, and so much more. Places Iceland and Portugal on my heart. Opens up a trip to the San Francisco Bay Area for 2 weeks in July (my dearest home and a place I love). It’s my test trip out to see with the eyes of Christ, taking my family who live there along for the ride. I go with new lens for my IPhone 7 and fresh passion beating in my heart.

Do you see how God leads us one step at a time? Can you see a picture forming? Look for it in your own life.

I attend a Scribal Mentoring Course for 8 months, beginning in July.

Joined Tribe Writers with Jeff Goins.

I am reading, reading reading Creative Books.

Co-Creating with God Lyn Packer

Born to Create – Theresa Dedmon

I pray and worship daily as He downloads His revelation into my life.

Off I go…………..like many others, I like conclusions, a final picture or clarity but then I realize that God loves journey, adventure, walking with Him in life, NOW.

I look forward to you following along with me. God is writing my story. What about you? How is God leading you? It may be just a whisper. Don’t miss it okay?
