Jesus the Conqueror


Jesus is all-conquering. Face all your difficulties in a spirit of conquest. Wherever Jesus is, there is victory. There are always choices with Jesus leading your way.  Forces of evil flee in his name.  Claim big victories.  Fear not.

Learn what it means to trust God in everything. You will never be the same again before that moment.

Be Still and Fight


James 1: 12 “Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.”

Do you know what that means?

We are to wear the devil out.  He gets weary trying to keep up with the faithful champions of endurance.

Lately, I am swiping at him from all angles.

Actually, clobbering him.

There is something to be said for justified anger. It breeds passion to do something about that which has been unjustly treated.

The injustice going on in the world has hit an all time high; but on the other side of that is a powerhouse uprising  in the hearts and souls of determined Jesus people.

As I have had to refrain to some extent from using this somewhat broken laptop, I refuse to allow the enemy to stop me from doing that which God has called me to do. If for no other reason I will keep blogging just to make him mad.

The enemy hates perserverance in God’s people. He hates endurance.

Those who seek to remain loyal to God’s call burn him out.

We must have the attitude we will out run him; debiltate him and cripple his incompetence.

Crisis is a normal event in the champions of Christ. Around every corner lies one more battle, one more fight but what most do not anticipate is Jesus is way ahead of it all.   His steps are placed on the scrimmage lines of good verses evil; and he always wins.

Endurance, perserverance doesn’t always come in the packages of action. Human nature is to rush or stir up some accomplishment; an activity producing a visual achievement.

However, agitation is hostile to good.  Calm can perform two actions at once; constructive of good and destructive of evil.

Yes, calm is an action; it is called trust.598770_10151537509956718_743984452_n

God says it is wrong to take matters into our hands quickly or to speed into action. This is where “be still and know that I am God” comes into play. Check in with God first before making any kind of move.  If he says be “patient” then wait until you know you have heard from him.

Go against the grain of the world in fighting off the enemy.  He detests the peace of Jesus in the soul of workers. We are left unburdened and victorious at the same time.

Now that is my kind of warfare.

Scattered Brains of Uncertainty


Dealing with the public most of my life has been well, bewildering. Honestly I don’t know how people get through a moment with their skeptical attitudes, suspicious uncertainties and scattered brains.

Growing up in a family business you could see them coming. As you run for the back door to escape their wrath, long winded conversations or their boring, ordinary lives they wish to telecast you ask if it is worth it to have them as customers.

Lately in my own Property Management business, I have run into some very ( let’s say to be nice) rigid and demanding, laborious and problematic, unyielding and burdensome people. Was that nice enough?

I could add irritating, stiff, and forget a picnic with them. Now I understand I am not perfect (my family has no problem reminding me of my faults) but at least I am trying!

At least I have ushered in my own diagnosis of mental lapses, waning memory and off the wall emotions. So what is their excuse?

My bubbling personality somehow misses the boat with some people. They are either set on being lifelessly formidable or one card short of a deck.

After an encounter with such menacing buffaloes use to be I would ask myself,
“what did I do wrong?” “Was it me?” “Was it something I said?”

Age gives you wisdom and for some added security with whom you are especially if you know Jesus. I finally learned for those who can’t find a parking space in an empty parking lot, somewhere a village is missing its idiot.

I try to be nice. I bend over backwards to accommodate others. I invite them into my home. I share. I try to give the benefit of the doubt. I understand their outlandish needs and do my best to solve them. AND WHAT DO I GET!

I get a proverbial punch in the mouth or an attack of hostility that links me to their depraved, tormented existence. To their advantage God and my husband have held me back from my violent intentions.

My aspirations to show them Christ appeared at the forefront of our meetings. My trusting heart has been to communicate where I stand which is at the feet of Jesus.

My faith position opened the door of exploitation. Their sly entrapment crept through the words not spoken and gestures of deceit as if I was moronically naïve.

My soul grieved over their spiteful undermining and needful attempt to prove the validity of their lost case.

Proving me wrong, or proving they were absolutely correct became an overriding destination in their soiled minds.

Little did they know my attachment and relationship with the “great vindicator.”

Little did they know he has taught me to sit back and wait for his army.

Little did they know their quest to throw me an injured curve would boomerang.

Little do they know I forgive them for they know not what they do.

Luke 23: 34
