    The difference between Religion & Relationship 6-18-18   "MONDAY MORNING MESSAGE"·MONDAY, JUNE 18, 2018   Religion is something that comes with imposing or enforcing. Its a man made, set of rules and rituals that can be devoid of true meaning, effectiveness and doesn’t cover every situation, every circumstance, every individual.   It's a process and means of manipulating actions and reactions to conform to an idealistic appearance of things even when the deeper issues and impulses still remain a factor, a causation or a symptom.   Relationship is a deeper, more relevant understanding. It is based on intimacy, communication and communion. It is not dictated by man nor is it hindered, harnessed or halted. When the Holy Spirit moves and speaks there is no interpretational error, no evasiveness, no misunderstanding and no refuting. It’s an individualized knowingness, between a being and it’s creator. Relationship does not need to impose itself, it is the value and integrity of the bond that keeps the parties engaging in an ever evolving, thriving meld of desire to be unified.   Religion goes about it’s process, belittling, trapping, conspiring, comparing and finger pointing. Accusations and false representations are easily concealed but not entirely inconspicuous. All deception will be consumed by God’s righteous decree and rule over validity, fairness, judgment and evaluations. These feeble misrepresentations are for but a time. Shame and regret will be the ultimate end of time wasted and energy squandered.   Relationship goes about its existence, knowing in a deep personal way, that there is safety and contentedness in ones walk. A good and peaceful repose, an understanding and a delight in the things that are pleasing to God. A desire to remain right in His eyes and a consistent walk that establishes that strength and authority. It's a mindset & a knowledge of having been “one who was without regard”, having been “one who was once ignorant”, having been “one who was at enmity”. It’s the compassion, love and courage, designed and backed by the Holy Spirit that disregards personal inconvenience for the sake of Sharing Truth. The knowledge of backbiting, covetous of the anointing, and familiar spirits will not dissuade the Relationship Loving Child of God. For we know full well, that if any of these things are occurring in our experience, as we diligently follow Gods promptings then we are doing an excellent job for the Kingdom, for these are the earmarks of the enemy being shaken!   The ultimate message here is this. If you are not 100% for Gods word, you are against it. That doesn’t mean that anyone can live up to it. Don’t confuse the two. God knows our weaknesses but what we are talking about here are those who do not want or like His rules. Wanting to please God genuinely is something only He can judge because only He reads and knows our real intentions. All is not lost if you recognize that YOU are NOT liking His rules. You can ask for forgiveness, you can ask to be forgiven, you can ask for a renewing of your mind. Being right with God starts with the knowledge that you are not but want to be.   Point put, if a person is not authentic, they are not hurting or offending me, it's God that they are betraying and ultimately hurting and betraying themselves. It would be better to just be than in attempting to deceive or portray one-self as a child of light, if it not be true. One is bad enough, adding the masquerade is a serious and dangerous infraction against the Lord God almighty. God will not be silenced, just because a person is uncomfortable with it. Those who are so far gone that discomfort doesn’t effect, they are called reprobate. They have already been cut off, by choice (their choice). Their end will not be a good thing, it saddens God and every true believer to think of what they will come to know (after it is too late)     Think twice, choose correctly and remain in the safety of the Lord! God bless!   JUST REMEMBER, THE STAIN DOESN’T COME OUT WITHOUT AGITATION   psalm 31:1-2 In you, O Lord, do I take refuge; let me never be put to shame; in your righteousness deliver me! 2 Incline your ear to me; rescue me speedily! Be a rock of refuge for me, a strong fortress to save me!   John 14:23-24 Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. Whoever does not love me does not keep my words. And the word that you hear is not mine but the Father’s who sent me.” 1 John 2:3 We know that we have come to know him if we keep his commands. 2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Revelation 22:15 Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.   Matthew 15:8 These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.   Isaiah 29:13 And so the Lord says, “These people say they are mine. They honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. And their worship of me is nothing but man-made rules learned by rote.   James 1:26 If a person thinks that he is religious but can’t control his tongue, he is fooling himself. That person’s religion is worthless.   John 2:9 Those who say that they are in the light but hate other believers are still in the dark.   Titus 1:16 They claim to know God, but they deny him by what they do. They are detestable, disobedient, and unfit to do anything good.     1 John 2:4 Whoever says, “I know him,” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person.   1 John 3:6 Those who live in Christ don’t go on sinning. Those who go on sinning haven’t seen or known Christ.   John 3:8-10 The person who practices sin belongs to the evil one, because the Devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason that the Son of God was revealed was to destroy what the Devil has been doing. No one who has been born from God practices sin, because God’s seed abides in him. Indeed, he cannot go on sinning, because he has been born from God. This is how God’s children and the Devil’s children are distinguished. No person who fails to practice righteousness and to love his brother is from God.   John 1:11 Dear friend, do not imitate what is evil but what is good. Anyone who does what is good is from God. Anyone who does what is evil has not seen God.   Luke 6:46 Why do you call me Lord but don’t do what I tell you? These people think there is another way to get into Heaven.     John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.“   2 Corinthians 11:13-15 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds.   2 Timothy 4:3-4 For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.

      Sometimes we are allowed to experience physical representations of actual spiritual lessons and training. The ultimate goal of that is to empower you and quicken you to quickly discerning Gods will, leading to immediate obedience and action. When the storms of life come, they are sometimes swift, unrelenting, disorienting. We have to know where our true north is. If the lights are out and the ground is now moving, your physical senses will fail you. Many times, instinct activates the carnal but the battle is won with spiritual prowess. We need not be worried or dismayed, scripture tells us that Our Lord is ever cognizant of our location and proximity we are under divine surveillance. It also reminds us that we know His voice, He is our good shepherd. Trust and an understanding of whats at your disposal is what's needed. Knowing how to access that and when to, is vital. God is always present where our praises are. It's evident then, as we wield our swords and lift the shields that we do so with His Magnificent name upon our lips, incessantly, unwavering, ever praising. Praising and thanking, thanking and praising, this turns the murky waters clear, levels the field, exposes the traps, encamps the wicked and exposes the enemy.   "You're going to face a powerful, invisible enemy every day-the Devil. …Put on your body armor and be prepared to fight him and his demonic hosts. Put on every piece of your battle dress" (Ephesians 6:10-20). "Stand…having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God; praying always. . . ." (verses 14-18) John 10:27-28  27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. Genesis 28:15 - "I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you."Psalm 32:8 - I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. Proverbs 15:3 - The eyes of the Lord are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good. Deuteronomy 32:10 - In a desert land he found him, in a barren and howling waste. He shielded him and cared for him; he guarded him as the apple of his eye. Psalm 32:8 - I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.

      Truly, God is the best friend I have ever had. But, have I always been a friend to Him?! Sadly no. I am a child of His, a servant, a humbled sinner, saved by Grace who now more than ever desires to be His best friend. I have always prided myself, in this life for the wonderful and rewarding friendships I have been able to foster over the years. I am truly blessed to have such long standing friendships with as many as I do. I love people, I love to help and I enjoy discovering what unifies us as much as what makes us unique, I celebrate that. Again, true to His magnificent consistency, I had many levels of confirmation this week. As I laid in bed, having this dialogue rung through my head, I realized and started stringing all of the correlations together, I kind of love that how these things are plucked from my every day, day to day and by the end of the week, poof, there it is a theme or a common topic. I watched another one of those remarkably encouraging evangelists who talked about how he graduated from servant to friend of God. How wonderful it was and how it transformed his walk and life. I too want that. I desire more than anything in this life to be considered by God to be His friend. I want to have those conversations, I want that total presence of Him as I go about my day. I have had moments, segments, seasons BUT I want more. It is merely now an act of conscious desire. He knows and I know it, now I rely on Him to give me that feedback. He is always there it was always I that deferred to being the needy one. Truthfully, I was in such a condition that I probably couldn't offer much more than my brokenness. Now, I desire to be whole and equipped, protected and provided for so as to free me up so I can truly concentrate and focus on that intimacy with Him. I want to know what makes Him happy, I want to know exactly when I bring a smile to His face.  I know He has a sense of humor, I want to laugh with Him. I want to be confident, not that I have such stature as to ever have Him consult me but I want to know His plans are, for myself, for this world, for tomorrow. I know I have His word. but I'm talking about a level deeper, the discernment similar and in real time just like how He leads me to my weekly message. My desire is that it doesn't stop with me. God can use more friends. Lots and lots need Him and take from Him, many serve Him but how many are truly His friend?!   “Draw near God and he will draw near you” (James 4:8) Romans 12:1, “Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship.”  John 15:4–6: Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. “I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. Matthew 6:33, “Seek first the kingdom of heaven and his righteousness.” I tell you, use worldly wealth to gain friends for yourselves so that when it is gone, you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings. “Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much. So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches? (Luke 16:9–11)   ~

    Life has a funny way of throwing you a curve ball. I spent the last two months in a state of pseudo -numbness. My brothers passing really affected me so greatly. Part of me felt like he was the only one person left to have been witness to all that I have been through, all that our family has been through. Someone who has known me since before I could speak. He too had been through so much, how could I deny that his going home to be with God is such a blessing for him. My connections to this world feel like they are dwindling and is that a bad thing? In my heart deep down, I just want Heaven. I want Jesus to come and for all of us to finally go home! I had been feeling down, worn out, affected and broken. I was just longing for another encounter with the Lord. Needing His touch, His voice, His comfort. As I lay there, watching a prophet of God talk about how God sings over us. He starting singing this song, it really touched me, it was as if God himself was singing it to me, tears started to flow. Near the end of his sermon, he stated that he felt that even as he had just sang, that he believed God was going to be singing over us tonight and that some of us would even have encounters, where we could hear it. Just as he was saying this,  my ALEXA device, which I keep on my nightstand, initialized and begin to play "top christian music". I was beyond blown away, knowing instantly this was God, getting my attention. I lowered the volume on the TV and wept as I listened. I soaked, I marveled, I melted in the realization This was the first three songs as they played....   1. It's not over Yet by King & Country https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XmTmTMcdxOs   2. Your Love is Loyal - Lauren Daigle https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xXKG-ooExGs   3. Whom Shall I fear - Chris Tomlin https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R0gu0nOaFsI   These songs just so ministered to my spirit, it was so amazing. There was another song that I have never heard before and I can't really remember it but at this point, I was drifting off to sleep. I was so enveloped in His love, it was magnificent. He desperately wants each of us to know how deeply in love with each of us that He is. Sometimes, the world we live in and the things we are exposed to dull His voice and His singing over us. The noise of this world can sometimes override His soft gentle voice but He never stops, never tires and never forfeits His position as our Father. He truly is Loyal! I still want Heaven and I would say to this world my bags are packed! When that time comes I am so ready! I know though, as God spoke to my spirit that it is not over yet. There is more to be done, more experiences to be had, a deeper awakening for this world, greater impartations, gifts, and anointings. I have been put in place for such a time as this for His glory and His harvest. Heavenly Father, I pray and plead the blood of the lamb protection over me and mine, over everyone who reads this. Lord, I ask that You give all Your children a similar encounter, a moment of extreme intimacy where there is no doubt in reason, in the natural or in the supernatural that it was You, the Almighty, so wonderful and might,y so all-knowing and all-encompassing. No denying, no explanations, just total perfection of timing and content that it is beyond, evident that it is YOU in that moment. I thank you, Lord, that you love me that much that you would bend down into my experience in such a way. It was exactly what I needed in that moment and I am forever grateful!AMEN   Susan Marie TheMondayMorningMessage.com MondayMorningMessages.com Deuteronomy 7:9 Know therefore that the LORD your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations. Psalm 86:15 But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.   Psalm 136:26 Give thanks to the God of heaven, for his steadfast love endures forever. Zephaniah 3:17 The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing. John 3:16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.  John 15:9-17 As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you.Abide in my love.  If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you. You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. These things I command you, so that you will love one another. Romans 5:8 God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:2-5 Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. Romans 8:37-39  No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave himself for me. Ephesians 2:4-5 But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ— by grace you have been saved. 1 John 3:1 See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him. 1 John 4:7-8  Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.  Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. 1 John 4:9-11 In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.

  • Life has a funny way of throwing you a curve ball. I spent the last two months in a state of pseudo -numbness. My brothers passing really affected me so greatly. Part of me felt like he was the only one person left to have been witness to all that I have been through, all that our family has been through. Someone who has known me since before I could speak. He too had been through so much, how could I deny that his going home to be with God is such a blessing for him. My connections to this world feel like they are dwindling and is that a bad thing? In my heart deep down, I just want Heaven. I want Jesus to come and for all of us to finally go home! I had been feeling down, worn out, affected and broken. I was just longing for another encounter with the Lord. Needing His touch, His voice, His comfort. As I lay there, watching a prophet of God talk about how God sings over us. He starting singing this song, it really touched me, it was as if God himself was singing it to me, tears started to flow. Near the end of his sermon, he stated that he felt that even as he had just sang, that he believed God was going to be singing over us tonight and that some of us would even have encounters, where we could hear it. Just as he was saying this,  my ALEXA device, which I keep on my nightstand, initialized and begin to play "top christian music". I was beyond blown away, knowing instantly this was God, getting my attention. I lowered the volume on the TV and wept as I listened. I soaked, I marveled, I melted in the realization This was the first three songs as they played....   1. It's not over Yet by King & Country https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XmTmTMcdxOs   2. Your Love is Loyal - Lauren Daigle https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xXKG-ooExGs   3. Whom Shall I fear - Chris Tomlin https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R0gu0nOaFsI   These songs just so ministered to my spirit, it was so amazing. There was another song that I have never heard before and I can't really remember it but at this point, I was drifting off to sleep. I was so enveloped in His love, it was magnificent. He desperately wants each of us to know how deeply in love with each of us that He is. Sometimes, the world we live in and the things we are exposed to dull His voice and His singing over us. The noise of this world can sometimes override His soft gentle voice but He never stops, never tires and never forfeits His position as our Father. He truly is Loyal! I still want Heaven and I would say to this world my bags are packed! When that time comes I am so ready! I know though, as God spoke to my spirit that it is not over yet. There is more to be done, more experiences to be had, a deeper awakening for this world, greater impartations, gifts, and anointings. I have been put in place for such a time as this for His glory and His harvest. Heavenly Father, I pray and plead the blood of the lamb protection over me and mine, over everyone who reads this. Lord, I ask that You give all Your children a similar encounter, a moment of extreme intimacy where there is no doubt in reason, in the natural or in the supernatural that it was You, the Almighty, so wonderful and might,y so all-knowing and all-encompassing. No denying, no explanations, just total perfection of timing and content that it is beyond, evident that it is YOU in that moment. I thank you, Lord, that you love me that much that you would bend down into my experience in such a way. It was exactly what I needed in that moment and I am forever grateful!AMEN   Susan Marie TheMondayMorningMessage.com MondayMorningMessages.com Deuteronomy 7:9 Know therefore that the LORD your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations. Psalm 86:15 But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.   Psalm 136:26 Give thanks to the God of heaven, for his steadfast love endures forever. Zephaniah 3:17 The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing. John 3:16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.  John 15:9-17 As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you.Abide in my love.  If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you.

    Does the Sun need to be validated in order to shine brightly, isnt its presence enough? .. I recall an occassion some years back; I was conversing with a group of friends and acquaintances, each was sharing valuable insights, stories &; assorted tidbits of information. A particular subject arose that I had measurable insight on, as I proceeded to speak, sharing what I knew; I was essentially called onto the carpet by someone to validate my words. Essentially what was said was that I speak with such Authority on things that a person might be inclined to just take what I say as fact regardless of whether or not it was valid. Yes, it was sort of insulting but I chose to address the real issue. I asked a few pointed questions, starting with; (1.) Have you ever known me to intentionally mislead anyone?…The answer, “No, you tend to take people under your wing, wanting to protect them”…I shook my head in agreement. Next, I asked, “Other than when I have something really amazing to share do you find me wrestling to dominate a conversation?”, The answer again was…”NO, not at all, you are a great listener”…By now my leading questions agitated this person enough that they rebutted with, “Well, if what you say is true, who and what entity is the source, from where did you learn it?”  I said; “Sometimes in life, the edification of actionable truth is more valuable than the pursuit of a validating the confined origin. Take what I say away with you and kick the tires a bit, you’ll come to find the soundness and solidity of it” For whatever reason God spoke through me in that and the issue was dropped. Job 32:88But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding. Contrary to what was suggested; I am a huge proponent of validating, cross-referencing, finding a solid footing to anchor a belief. There are some things that come to your knowledge by the spirit of God in an instant, where you don’t know how you know it, how it arrived other than the instant it clicks in your spirit. It is from this place where I had been speaking. It is the counterpoint of human intellect and a personal responsibility toward what is given and try it, search it out, ask for revelation, prove it right or wrong or just sit with it a bit and let God reveal the message with further confirmations in mind/soul/spirit. I’ve always been what I would call the Ultimate Optimist, I have a great ability to imagine, dream and desire the best possible outcome. When faced with the opposite, in fact, it just assures me that it THEREFORE MUST EXIST, simply based on the principle that if there is an obvious down, there is also an up, even if it hasn’t shown yet. This world is temporal, a place of degrees and axioms. The message that God has spoken so deeply on a level where words never even entered but only assured knowing is this, our experiences here are coming to a place of quickening; where thoughts become manifest, desires and dreams will drive up upon you, honking the horn, Impossible for some will be possible for others (for those who never dared to un-believe in them) limitations will be self-induced prisons and the Children of God will be Casting out devils from those who have given themselves over to wrongful thoughts &; actions/ Healing the sick for those who fear disease so deeply that they manifest it &; Moving Mountains out of the way for those who have built them with negative thoughts. All of these things will hinge upon harnessing God’s power, for those in close communion, full obedience and an eye on Zion! John 14:12Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.   1 Peter 2:6 Therefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Zion a chief cornerstone, elect, precious: and he that believes on him shall not be confounded. (Paraphrased excerpt from Matthew 10:1 and Luke 9:1-2)“Behold I give you authority over all the power of the enemy–over all thepowers of the devil–over all the powers of hell–over every diabolical spirit ordemon.” The instruction here from the Lord is to get very familiar with His word, it is the gateway to the fulfillment of every promise and every possibility. Faith is substance: Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.~ Hebrews 11:1 As we believe, we shall receive, in accordance with Gods will! Phillipians 4:8Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Abba Father, we seek your Divine Guidance here on this subject; we are at a crossroads between the needs that we face and the solutions that we are willing to accept. Help us to stretch far beyond our limitations to believe upon those things which bring life, health and joy. Help us to shun the imaginings of every odd and weird thing that pertains to darkness and the what if’s of life. Help us turn our imaginations to believe upon All things possible within your Will and the Kingdom. In Jesus Mighty and precious name AMEN   ~Susan Marie TheMondayMorningMessage.com www.MondayMorningMessages.com

        It has been a long hiatus of sorts. a mental and spiritual regrouping. 2017 proved to be a very challenging year on many fronts. First, unforeseeable circumstances nearly claimed my life. This caused me to retract a bit and focus on my physical needs.  I have made a promise to myself to honor my instincts and be kind to myself in every way possible. Easier said than done, especially for a woman like myself who was taught to fight through. One of the reasons why I am still here is because of my tenacity. But then I realize, NO...thats my attitude (under my control) but my presence is fully purchased by grace. I am still here and I survived because God has ordained that. It is because my mission is not yet fulfilled. Otherwise, there are a host of reasons that could have, should have, would have wiped me out, but it was God who did not allow that, it's just that simple. My dear brother passed away a week before Thanksgiving. This kind and gentle man had so many struggles in his life. It's hard not to miss him but I know in my heart of hearts that he is with Jesus, enjoying the eternal glory we are all promised when we surrender to the Lord. He loved Jesus and longed for heaven as I do. I am so glad that he has peace and happiness which he so very much deserves. His passing really rocked my world. It is just so much more different than losing a parent (which I and my siblings lost both of our parents). It caused me to really focus on the eternal. This place we know of as heaven but really do not fully comprehend. From what I do know, so many of my most cherished loved ones are there. More importantly, Jesus; the one who makes it all possible is there. I want it more than anything else I can think of. If only I could expedite the process. In my heart of hearts I just wish and pray that every human being alive would just accept the Lord so that we could all just go home already! Oh, if it were only just that easy! Prayers they will not cease, and witnessing, that will continue for anyone willing to examine my demeanor or ask of my assistance, I readily will show Jesus to them, in my actions and in my love. Words are important, as long as they back up what we exhibit. Whatever else, whatever the Lord leads me to, in an effort to fulfill the hurrying and not the hastening of His coming. that is what I pray for. I read somewhere that there are just 7 degrees of separation between us and every other person on this planet. If we would all just fervently pray over OUR CIRCLES OF INFLUENCE, the percentage, God is faithful to fulfill His promises. Ask and it is given, seek and ye shall find, knock and it shall be opened unto you.   The passing of my brother caused me to reflect so deeply. this poem is probably the closest thing to describe how I feel. There is a longing in my soul that nothing in this world can cure, except Jesus!

      Preservation is a byproduct of obedience. You can learn this fast as through one lesson or through repetition until you get it. Betterment is His promise to us, as He sorts & surveys our comprehension of this. When we are so fully in faith of belief that we surrender peacefully to God’s provisions and plans over us. Far better is that which He arranges than that which we might pick, thinking we know better. Not to say that He doesn’t inspire and invite us to dream big, or specific, for surely, He does. It is just a small adjustment but a pivotal one, where we recognize what we desire is also pleasing to God. It’s when we have those noble and notable notions, those are the ones worth actualizing. At a certain time in recent history, it was popular to find with, when you would buy a pricey garment or gadget, it would come with a proof of quality inspection. There would typically be an insert, a slip, a note, or sticker which read inspected by a signature a number or both. This offered perceived value, if not peace of mind. After all, that little confirmation carried a weight of expectation. Surely, if it passed inspection it is of good quality for me?! A likely supposition. We put an ounce of confidence in it, before even establishing whether it is a sound fact. Does not faith require of us, just such trust?! When we send everything through God’s sort and sift, surveyor belt, we have nothing but the best of results. Filtered, fantastic and infinite!Look to God in all matters. With Him as a business advisor, encourager, life coach, magistrate, provision source, public relations liaison and the list goes on. The spirit is always communicating. Let God speak over your life. When you have your confession triangulated off of His word, that is an angle of untold benefits. God also offers His little signs and signals, that His mighty hand was responsible. I personally love those ahahhh moments. In fact, that is the case with every outcome that occurs to His children. Sometimes, we are able to see the progression or the full circle, other times it is merely putting it up for the future. Our Father offers more than preservation, He also delights in helping us thrive. Heavenly Father, I pray and plead the blood of the lamb protection over me and mine, over everyone and theirs, especially our precious sisters and brothers in Christ, as well as all connected to us and through us. Lord, thank You for Your faithfulness. These constants and truths are a tremendous source of confidence with formidable reinforcements. ‘With thee for me’, ‘all things are possible’. Remind us Oh Lord to speak over our circumstances. Lord, as we wish them to be handled through You, that means solid and sound on both fronts, the seen and the unseen.   SusanMarie * ´¨) ¸.•´¸.•*´¨) ¸.•*¨) (¸.• ´ (¸.•` ¤ Susan SMZ3D ت smz ™ © ® RSS FEED : http://feeds.feedburner.com/MondayMorningMessagePlaces the most current message readily available in your browser bar- Just click to subscribe now Monday Morning Message Gift Shop http://www.MondayMorningMessages.com/Shop   READ THESE SCRIPTURES AND ALLOW THE SPIRIT TO SPEAK TO YOU ABOUT WHAT WE HAVE JUST DISCUSSED   Romans 8:31  What shall we then say to these things?

    The Monday Morning Message 8/28/17   The EGO MIND is a funny, fickle thing! Part narcissistic, part ignorant. Like the child that thinks he or she just exists, unaware of their own inception and blissfully ignorant of the constant support required in their sustenance. Take the letters of EGO MIND and re-arrange them and it spells GOD MINE or Mine God. This is so ironic and very telling. Because, anyone, at any time, cannot even claim ownership of their identity without the permission and providence of God. To say, “I am” this or “I am” that, quite literally asserts and simultaneously establishes the presence of consciousness which is founded and funded by God Almighty, the great “I AM”. The first, the last and the only! Even those who claim to disown God or reject Him. Are doing so under the umbrella of His allowance and affordance. Imagine how this must hurt our benevolent Creator who tolerates this terrible injustice. For He knows full well that it is to their own demise and He never intended for that, but it is a necessary byproduct of freewill and choice. Love, respect and trust cannot be forced. If He were to interfere it would not be fair and it would not be authentic. Love demands authenticity, so the Creator and reader of hearts knows His own creation. Regardless of that knowledge, God continues to love and provide, offering plenty of space for a change of heart. That thing that we call the human life span, is in many ways an act of His generous mercy. Nothing is anything without Him. Every knee shall bow to His mighty name. Every single life, existence, consciousness, former and present will at once, in every way know and acknowledge Him. it is being on the correct side of that equation that will ensure an eternal validation of security. To be on the wrong side of that equation unto death is a wretched and unnecessary tragedy. Romans 14:11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. KNOW GOD & KNOW PEACE or no God and No Peace! Choose this day whom you will serve. To not serve God is to serve Satan by default. Those are the only two choices and the enemy is happy for you to ignorant of that fact as he hates God and he himself, a former perfect & most beautiful angel forfeited his eternity through his own self-deceit.  Do not follow him, you will be eternally sorry.   SusanMarie * ´¨) ¸.•´¸.•*´¨) ¸.•*¨) (¸.• ´ (¸.•` ¤ Susan SMZ3D ت smz ™©®   YOU CAN SAVE A PDF VERSION OF THIS MESSAGE BY CLICKING HERE   RSS FEED : http://feeds.feedburner.com/MondayMorningMessagePlaces the most current message readily available in your browser bar- Just click to subscribe now  Monday Morning Message Gift Shop http://www.MondayMorningMessages.com/Shop   READ THESE SCRIPTURES AND ALLOW THE SPIRIT TO SPEAK TO YOU ABOUT WHAT WE HAVE JUST DISCUSSED   Exodus 3:14King James Version (KJV) 14 And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.   Malachi 3:6 For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.   John 5:30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.   2 Corinthians 2:11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.

    GOD IS FAITHFUL! (revisited from 2/2012)   Isa 55:11 11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. (KJV) What does that mean? How can we view this & fully absorb the impact?  Trust, Loyalty and Confidence have become commodities instead of virtues. Everyone has been touched by it, to some degree along the line; betrayal of a friend, disloyalty of a spouse! Confidences broken, abandonment, abuse, selfishness, fear, doubt, misguided intentions. People who lie to themselves will most assuredly have a hard time maintaining integrity in interpersonal relationships with others. Most of these people operate under a mode of conduct induced by some hurt or betrayal that they themselves had befallen. Yet, in other things, we give trust away so easily, especially when we are invested in the outcome. We want a certain thing so badly that the slightest hint that we might obtain it, we are ready to sign at the dotted line. When you order food at a restaurant, no one sits there & questions; “Are they really going to bring it”, “Am I good enough to be served what I asked for?"  Misplaced trust? YES, absolutely! We should only have as much comfortable confidence in God’s promises! He is so far above our limited viewpoint, knowing every variable, every potential outcome, every lesson assigned and the tolerances of each of us. Like that expression;  “When you are down to nothing, God is up to something!” Every bad event a christian faces, God promises to FAITHFULLY rework it into a blessing. Whatever happens is due to His Grace, whatever doesn’t happen is due to His Mercy, whatever eventually happens is due to His dominion!   Romans 8:28 28And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. The world wants it to show before they will go. God wants us to Trust before he delivers ...it’s a must! Faith is like a down payment, recorded and ordered, a contract between the Great I AM and little ol’ You! If we can just learn to look at it with our spiritual eyes, looking into His word, His character, His abilities; we would then see that NOTHING is impossible, goes un-noticed or slips through the cracks! It's as simple as that! It is SOUND BIBLICAL TRUTH & just because YOUR evidence hasn’t arrived yet, that doesn’t define, limit or prohibit God. It will come to pass! Every promise He makes, will come to pass! If He told you He will bless your seed and save your whole household, its a done deal! If He told you every tear you shed is collected, stored and recorded, you can bank on it! Acts 16:13 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.   Psalm 56:8 8 You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book. Our requests should always be in alignment with what God says is right and true. Remember the principle of reaping what you sew!

        There are two types of reality, that of the world, your flesh and that of eternity, your spiritual self. Most people seem to think that the flesh, that the human body is all there is?! They focus more on the repercussions of this physical existence not realizing God created every human being to exist for all eternity. That means when you leave this world only the flesh passes away, you have an eternal destination for that soul! Either redeemed or removed from the presence of God, each a result of personal choice & belief!   Did you know that all of the water that is on this planet has always been on this planet?! Because of our atmosphere, there is nowhere for it to go. It rains down, absorbs into the ground, evaporates back up into the atmosphere, forms rain clouds in a complex, yet simple cycle. Did you know there is a river of living water in heaven, (REV 22:1)?! I believe it could be the water that Jesus collects from our tears (Psalm 56:8) along with the water that flowed from His side (John 19:34). Our human body is mostly water, which I also find interesting too.   To help you grasp the "shift in thinking", what's greater, the drill or the electricity which flows through it? We are vessels, our time & position in this place is like that of a tool, our bodies were given to us so that our spirit could have physical experiences in this realm. You are a spirit inhabiting a body, for a season. Who we are and what we are, is really two separate things! Who we are, is a result of sin being passed down through the free will disobedience of our first human ancestors. What we are, is an eternal entity having a temporary carnal experience. We are solely the property of God yet He gifts us free will. Our very breath is issued from the mandate of His authority and was fully supplied by His initial breath of life. (See Genesis 2:7)   If we plant a seed, do we not fully expect for it to grow?! We see the picture of what the seed is to become and fully expect that is what it will be. We need to plant some eternal seeds, that yield in God's season! Eternal fruit is the result of everything sewn in obedience to Him. Now more than ever people need to plant seeds of kindness, forgiveness, service, mercy & faith. You may feel like a lonely drop of water, BUT you are part of Gods Eternal Ocean, YOU COUNT, that's why God chose to create you!   If you have good ideas, go water them. Almighty Lord, we ask that You give increase to every one of our suitable notions and lead us into the greatness You have designed for us in Service and Praise to our Almighty King, Lord & Savior, Your Son Jesus Christ AMEN!         Rev 22:1 And he shewed me a pure river of living water, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.   Psalm 56:8 You keep track of all my sorrows.[a]    You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book.   John 19:34 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.   Genesis 2:7  7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.   John 7:38 He that believes on me, as the scripture has said, out of his heart shall flow rivers of living water.       *´¨) ¸.•´¸.•*´¨) ¸.•*¨) (¸.•´ (¸.•` ¤ Susan SMZ3D ت smz ™ © ® RSS FEED : http://feeds.feedburner.com/MondayMorningMessage Places the most current message readily available in your browser bar- Just click to subscribe now    Monday Morning Message Gift Shop http://www.MondayMorningMessages.com/Shop
