Lost and Found
Friday, March 23, 2012
Riding in to work, the fog is heavy but yet visibility is crystal clear in front of me. I can't see the things afar off, there's just pure white density but my immediate path is not obscured. My mind begins to wander about the path of life and how we can vividly see the things around that many times are not what we envisioned our paths to be. We look ahead and we see bleakness through the heavy fogs of burdens, trials, and circumstances. But yet there's something on the inside that tells to keep pressing no matter what it looks like. We ultimately know that something is the Holy Spirit on the inside that nudges us forward. If we keep it real, there are so many things going on in our lives at times that our vision is obstructed by the fog delays and we resort to calling it something. Jesus our guide, keeps us moving and what once seemed so far off appears right in front of our faces and we realize it was there all the time, it just wasn't in plain view.
Well something got ahold of me on my ride in and my thoughts were shifted to a text I had received earlier from a beloved sister that ended with "Have an outstanding day!" HALLELUJAH! HALLELUJAH! HALLELUJAH! A praise erupted from me as the Spirit began to speak to me encouraging me to...
- Keep out standing the enemy - fight him with praise
- Keep out standing the attacks - combat them with spiritual weapons
- Keep out standing the bites of the spiders that desire to keep you entangled on their webs of envy, jealousy, and deception - I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD...WHOM THE SON SETS FREE IS FREE INDEED
- Keep out standing the lack - I AM going to do exceedingly and abundantly above all you could ask or think and I will supply your every need according to my riches in glory
Keep outstanding and watch me move like I did in Exodus 34:10-11. Watch me move like I spoke those my chosen servant on the Daily Devotional, I am going "to do things in this season for my people that only I can do" "Be obedient to my commands and 'wait for my marvelous, miraculous, awesome plan to unfold".
Be encouraged to keep OUT STANDING whatever you are going through in your life, knowing that as long as you keep it moving forward, following God's commands we shall be blessed for leaning not to our own understanding.

When we work TOGETHER we (T)ell (O)ur (G)od (E)ssentially (T)hat (H)elping (E)ach-other (R)everances him for He calls us to bear with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.Be encouraged in the Word of Ephesians 4:1-6
I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that you walk worthy of the vocation with which you are called, With all lowliness and meekness, with long-suffering, forbearing one another in love; Endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body, and one Spirit, even as you are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

Love more than the day before. Love things less and people like they owe you nothing in return. There's more gratification in loving those who don't love you back than to hate them in return. Today I pray that bitterness is replaced with compassion, anger with joy, and all negativity with love. Don't allow your good to be evil spoken of...sow love no matter what it looks like.
I conclude with the memory of a song I heard Ashley Jones sing Sunday "I pray we'll all be ready when he returns!
