I don’t have much to write about that I haven’t already written about here and here.

So it seems to me like I’m a broken record lately.

It’s about Jesus.

It’s about love.

It’s about how I’m feeling about those two things.

It’s about life in the prayer room, as an intercessory missionary.

But its just like Chris commented on my How I feel…post. Emotions change, God does not. Amen.

Life has it’s ups and downs. I have my ups and downs. But God never changes. I can always count on Him, especially when I can’t count on myself to be consistent.

He has a perfect track record. In every instance of my life He has proven Himself faithful! He has proven Himself full of love. He has proven Himself perfect. I can trust Him, I can believe Him, I can give Him everything and He won’t take advantage of me. He doesn’t reject me or abandon me. Nope, He is always there. He never breaks His promises. Oh he is not a covenant breaker, He is a covenant keeper! Always, and forever!

I have to keep testifying of how great God is! I can’t keep it in, over and over again I will praise Him! I will tell about His goodness! Even when I don’t feel like it or it doesn’t seem like it. I will testify of truth. He is truth.

Bless the Lord!

Journal excerpt from Feb. 11th, 2008. (stuff in dark blue is added, light blue is taken directly, word for word from my journal)


Struggle #1

I’m having a really hard time concentrating. My thoughts are all over the place. I need to take every thought captive.

(This is one of the biggest struggles once you sit yourself in the presence of the Lord. The enemy does not want you to encounter the Lord or hear His voice or talk with Him. So he is going to distract you. And one of the easiest and subtle ways is through our thoughts! This is a daily thing. To set your mind on things above. Col. 3. I’m still moving into greater places in this area.)

Struggle #2

A big strugggle I have is spending time with You outside of the prayer room! And not wasting the other time I have…And I want us to spend as much time as we can in the prayer room but this struggle should challenge us to be disciplined with our time outside of the prayer room. Because one day if we aren’t in the prayer room, our biggest challenge will be to spend time in intimacy with You. We should learn the discipline now so that when its even more challenging we can press in! Let us press in. Not waste our time or spend our mundane and bored moments in legitimate pleasures but in HOLY PLEASURES! Challenge us Holy Spirit. Let us be readical and consecrated! Do this in me! I want to do it God! Spend more time with you outside the prayer room.

(Another huge struggle. So its a struggle for anyone to schedule time with the Lord outside of daily work, friends and responsibilities. Its the same with us in the prayer room. I don’t just want my whole spiritual life to be in a room. I want to encounter and know God even outside the prayer room. And not just talking to people about God and fellowshipping. I mean getting in the secret place. Sitting before the Lord, worshiping Him. Loving on Him. When you are in that place 6-7 hours a day, when you get home its easy to get caught up in other things. But oh how I want it to be in EVERY part of my life. And to the greatest degree! I want God to invade my life! I want to fellowship with the Spirit even while doing things like blogging, dishes, eating, sleeping, reading, talking!)

Prayer Request…

Confirm if this is Your will! The building on 5th street.

(Just wanted to testify how God answers prayer, and even if you have to contend for a while! This is one record I have of my prayers for our building. We now own it. We bought it in Jan. almost a year later from this prayer! The first prayer I have recorded for this building we bought, was Aug. 1st 2007. God does answer prayer, but in His timing! Thank you Jesus for hearing our prayers!)

——————————————————————-

Truth…

Your banner over me is LOVE!

(This is one truth that I keep meditating on. That God loves me, and it is His motivation! He loves me! Wow!)

Conclusion…

Tonight concludes my time with my family.

Off tomorrow for a fun filled day of friends and driving.

I was able to see a couple of friends today. Spent a couple hours wrapping presents with my friend Erin. And then made some posters with my friend Josh and the kids in his youth group for a parade they are in. The kids are part of an organization that takes a stand for purity and abstinence. Its pretty awesome to see kids desiring to be pure and to go against the culture of sex before marriage. Way to go kids!

I had this conversation with a girl there:

girl: “Do you think we will get mobbed for standing for abstinence?”

me: “Its totally ok if you get persecuted for Jesus! Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness sake for theirs is the kingdom of heaven!!”

(the girl kinda shakes her head yes and smiles while staring at me. As other girls turn and stare too.)

Hey its the truth. Just thought they should know. 🙂

I am currently in New York visiting my best friend, Allison. And I was just meditating on a passage of scripture this morning: Psalm 73:25-28. I was just ministering to the Lord, thanking Him for all that He has done in my life when I remembered this verse. Back in September and October the Lord was leading me through the wilderness. I asked Him to make me a woman of desperation and to reduce me to One Thing, and He was doing that. So I really clung to this verse. Especially verse 26 and it says “My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” and then verse 28 says “But as for me, the nearness of God is my good; I have made the Lord God my refuge, that I may tell of all Your works.” So I clung to the promise in this verse. If I make the Lord God my refuge, I will make it through this time of trials and testing so that I may tell of all of His work that He did in me.

HE DID IT! I was sitting here this morning thinking, I haven’t spent as much time with Him as I wanted to, but this entire trip I have been telling of all of His works in my life! It is so beautiful. I have been able to testify of how GREAT my GOD IS!

He is the God that He says He is. His word is truth and I want to stand on it. And I’ve seen it come to pass in my life! Jesus is amazing, and I love Him more than LIFE!
