WALKING ON UNCHARTERED WATERS...FOLLOW ME....

Good Morning,

"WALKING ON UNCHARTERED WATERS.....FOLLOW ME." Mighty words from the Father...

When I looked up the meaning "Unchartered" it said "moving in on UNKNOWN territory"

Wow how true is that for many of us right now?

Are you moving into an "Unknown" territory?

Does it frighten you? I hope not. God did not give us the Spirit of FEAR...

Does it make you wonder? Hopefully it does. For the Lord says " I know the plans I have for you."

Does it excite you to see what God has for you in this "
Unchartered" Territory? My hope is that it does excite you and that you are preparing yourselves for what HE has in store for each of us.

"FOLLOW ME" God is saying in order to walk on those "unchartered" waters, you must "FOLLOW HIM" Because He needs YOU to be WILLING to TRUST HIM and WALK beside HIM as HE shows you what is ahead.....

Personally for myself, I am beginning that WALK ON UNCHARTERED WATER. I am excited for what is being revealed and for what is yet ahead. I will FOLLOW MY FATHER as HE walks along side me each step of the way.....

GOD IS MOVING IN A MIGHTY WAY...AND HE IS SAYING "FOLLOW ME" "I AM OPENING THE FLOODGATES AND LETTING THE RAIN FALL ON YOU." "LET MY PRESENCE SATURATE YOU." "LET MY WORD SOAK YOU" "BE READY FOR I AM COMING!!" "ARE YOU READY FOR ME?"......

"LET IT RAIN....
LET IT RAIN.....
OPEN THE FLOODGATES OF HEAVEN.....
LET IT RAIN..... (Michael W. Smith)

In Gods Love,
Cindy

YOU ARE GODS GARDEN....

Good Morning,

This morning I am sharing a DEVOTION that I receive each morning in my emails.

I love this DEVOTION and I hope you will too....

In Gods Love

You Are God's Garden

1 CORINTHIANS 3:9 LB
9 We are only God's coworkers. You are God's garden, not ours;
you are God's building, not ours.

We discovered that God's Word is a seed (Luke 8:11). Now we see
that the Bible says that we, as believers, are God's garden --
the place where seed is planted.

The question for you to consider is: who determines the
harvest? God, or you?

(The harvest I speak of is the fruit, or result, of the Word of
God. The harvest of blessing that God's Word produces in your
life.)

I suggest that the harvest is mainly controlled by the one who
determines what seed is planted. Would you agree?

If wheat seed is planted, it is unreasonable to expect a
harvest of corn. If only a few seeds are planted, it is
unreasonable to expect a large harvest. Wouldn't you agree?

Yes, you are God's field, but He allows you a lot of freedom to
choose what will be produced in your life. And the main way you
choose is by choosing what seed will be planted in your heart
and mind.

You can choose something other than God's Word. You can also
choose different areas of God's Word. Planting different
scriptures will produce different results in your life.

If all you ever plant are scriptures on the new birth, you
cannot expect to have a huge harvest of healing or financial
blessing in your life. The choice is yours.

SAY THIS: I am God's garden. Lord, help me plant the seed of
your Word in me in abundance.

"LET IT RAIN"

Good Morning Ladies,

I love when the Lord wakes us in the middle of the night with either a SCRIPTURE, a WORD or a PHRASE...

Well, That is exactly what HE did for me in the wee hours of this morning.... HE said "LET IT RAIN".....just those 3 words...."LET IT RAIN".....I laid in bed wondering what HE meant by "LET IT RAIN".......OPEN THE FLOODGATES OF HEAVEN...I reached over and picked up my Bible and I opened it and right in front of my eyes John 7:34 appeared and it was already highlighted...."He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water."

I know in my heart that HE is preparing me for a NEW SEASON....He knows the desires of my heart. He knows the plans He has for me and He's saying "Now is your time to RAIN AND OPEN THOSE FLOODGATES AND HAVE THE WORDS OF YOUR HEART FLOW LIKE RIVERS OF LIVING WATER. I have been preparing you to go and speak my word into the world. I will make it possible." "For you have obeyed me thru all trials. You have trusted me." "Now my daughter, you are ready to LET IT RAIN and to OPEN THE FLOODGATES and let your words flow."

My hearts desire is to reach out to women who need encouragement, who need to hear the word of GOD, who need to know that there is someone who believes in them, that they are not alone.....

This is an exciting time. God has blessed me with an opportunity to speak at my FIRST Women's Event outside of my church. On May 28, 2011 I will be speaking in Largo, Florida at Pastor Melissa Sutton's church. The freedom of the Holy Spirit is going to "FLOW LIKE RIVERS OF LIVING WATER". I thank you Lord, for trusting me, your daughter, to go forth and bring the word to these ladies.

In the days ahead as I prepare to speak Gods word, please pray for me. That God will use me in a mighty way. That all that is said and shared will bring GLORY to HIS name. That womens lives will be changed.

"I am but the CLAY...I give MY LIFE to the POTTERS HAND."....

"With GOD ALL things are POSSIBLE."

"I can do ALL things through CHRIST who gives me STRENGTH"

I love each and everyone of you. May your day be blessed....

In Gods Love
Cindy

SOARING ON EAGLES WINGS.....Change is Coming. Renewal is Coming...A NEW Season is coming....

In ISAIAH 40:31 it says:

"But they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint: (ESV)

THE EVERYDAY BIBLE AMPLIFIED VERSION BY JOYCE MEYER says it like this:

"But those who wait for the LORD(Who expect, look for and hope in Him) shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up (close to God) as eagles (mount up to the sun); they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired.

Personally, I want to wait for the Lord....

As each NEW day begins I awaken with a joy of EXPECTATIONS...I set ALL my HOPE in HIM everyday. My strength is renewed, I have a NEW GOD GIVEN POWER to face each obstacle, each trial, each circumstance through the POWER OF THE LORD....I will MOUNT UP AND SOAR LIKE THE WINGS OF AN EAGLE, I have DETERMINATION....I will PERSEVERE and I will PRESS ON and not GROW WEARY....I will walk with my head held high....I will LIFT MY HANDS IN PRAISE AND GLORIFY MY FATHER FOR EVERYTHING HE DOES.....BECAUSE HE IS THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY AND TOMORROW....

I would like to encourage you, whatever trial or situation or circumstance you are going through, don't get downhearted.....Remember these words:

EXPECT- ONLY THE BEST THINGS IN YOUR LIFE...THE THINGS THAT GOD HAS GIVEN YOU

HOPE- FOR A BRIGHTER TOMORROW, BECAUSE GOD IS IN IT.....

POWER- THAT NO WEAPON AGAINST ME SHALL PROSPER....

STRENGTH- I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHO GIVES ME STRENGTH....

Remember God loves you and He is always walking right beside you.....

In Gods Love

The Journey of 2010.....

Good Morning Ladies,

Its been awhile since I have been here to blog....

So many things have changed....

The journey of 2010 was a very long journey...It was a journey of EMOTIONS...It was a journey of TRIALS.....It was a journey of the UNKNOWN.

2010 was a journey that GOD had destined for me. A journey that brought me CLOSE to HIM...this journey was a "I WALK BY FAITH AND NOT BY SIGHT" journey. It was also a journey of "PERSEVERENCE" and "PRESSING ON".....

2010 was the year that everything that my husband and I worked for was lost....

Our trucking business that we started when we moved here 6 yrs ago went under....

We went thru a CHAPTER 7 BANKRUPTCY....

The house that we had built went into foreclosure....

There were times when I didn't know where our next meal would come from....

During this ENTIRE journey, I never questioned the Lord.....I knew HE had a PLAN and PURPOSE for me...He had given me the word "PERSEVERENCE" for 2010....Every where I went, everything I read the word PERSEVERE would be there somehow.....So, PERSERVERE is what I did.

My Scripture for 2010 was "With God all things are possible" and "I walk by FAITH and not by SIGHT" my daily word was "I am but the CLAY, I give MY LIFE to the POTTERS HAND." and I did....I gave it to the Lord....It wasnt always easy....There were alot of tears....

The Lord got me thru this.....

After 10 months of Carl working 2 jobs that he hated, God blessed him with a job that he had been trying for, for 10 months....He got the job with Sarasota County Bus Company called SCAT.....He is doing what he loves to do...DRIVE...

I had a job for about 8 months....God brought me that job when I needed it the most.....But, HE also took me out of it, when HE knew that I needed to be out of there, because HE knew changes were coming in our lives and that I would need to be present during these changes...

God blessed me so that I could receive UNEMPLOYMENT during this time....

Carl and I had to find a NEW home to live in. In the beginning it was stressful. I didn't want to give up my home....I was uncertain if we could find a home that we could take our 2 dogs, 2 birds and boo boo kitty with us....Those are my "children"....

Everyday, I prayed without ceasing....I kept "PERSEVERING" and "PRESSING ON"....."I WALK BY FAITH AND NOT BY SIGHT"....."WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE".....

God heard my prayers, HE heard the cries of my heart, He would let me know that HE was PRESENT, that HE was with me during this journey and HE would NEVER LEAVE ME....and HE never did.....

HE Blessed Carl and I and our "babies" with a wonderful home....My aunt and uncle owned a home just 2 blocks from where we had lived....They had moved up to New Hampshire.....The tenants that were in the house at the time were not good tenants.....But, that is another chapter for another time...but, with alot of help, blood, sweat and tears OUR HOME THAT THE LORD PROVIDED FOR US IS BEAUTIFUL....

I say all this to ENCOURAGE YOU....To let you know, that if you are going thru some trial or situation and I know we all are, DO NOT GIVE UP....DO NOT LET SATAN GET A HOLD ON THE SITUATION.....

PRAY, PERSEVERE, PRESS ON!!!! GOD HAS A PLAN AND PURPOSE AND A DESTINY FOR EACH ONE OF YOU!!!!!........

I MAY HAVE LOST ALL MATERIAL THINGS IN 2010.....BUT THE ONE THING THAT WASN'T TAKEN FROM ME AND COULD NEVER BE TAKEN FROM ME IS MY LOVE FOR MY FATHER, AND THE LOVE THAT MY FATHER HAS FOR ME....

In Gods Love,
Cindy
