But those who wait on 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.

My Worship time
You can read My my secret door experience, where the Lord himself guided me
into His Presence. I also share the Spirit-Led Music in our “Music Resources” section
or read “My worship MUST HAVES to hear what always helps me “get there”, and a little
on what others have experienced with the same resources.

He continued to minister to me...and He will do it for you also!
Ask the Lord to reveal to you what YOUR “time with Him” looks like. He knows
your schedule, your cares and all that you have to juggle in a day. He also knows
the way to reach YOUR heart so it may be a different book or prayer or even a word
from His Word that He impresses upon your heart but ask Him to design what this time
looks like. Remember that it IS a sacrifice...but the blessings will far outweigh
whatever you give up. Get good worship music, get a clean journal and write down
your prayer requests, your adoration words...and what you hear FROM HIM!
Run after Him,
wait until you receive “The Blessing”.
And may He drench you with His glory!
In His grace and mercy,
“...bind up that which is broken and strengthen the weak” (WEB version) says to me
that He will heal the sick, strengthen us when we are weak, encouraging us and pouring
out His strength. The American Standard version switches the words a little: “I will
seek that which was lost, and will bring back that which was driven away, and will
bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick...” Which
I STILL take to mean that binding up the “broken” is also speaking about our HEARTS,
as this verse suggests that the sick are the ‘weak’ ones.
“You do not need anyone to teach you…” (1 John 2:27)
“And ye have an anointing from the Holy One, and ye know all the things.” (1 John
A short testimony
(ok, maybe not so short but it's good!)
On Valentines day, 2008, upon rising that morning, the Lord told me to get
up and collect a journal that I had tucked at the bottom of a bookcase and forgotten
about.. He impressed upon me that I was to take it to a chair that I never sat in,
in the far corner of my living room, and “journal my prayers”.
My feet didn't even hit the floor before I started whining: “LORD! You KNOW
that I never stick to anything like that whenever I try it! I mean, how many TIMES
in the past have I tried to journal Do you even REMEMBER HIGH SCHOOL?!” I even reminded
him of all my failed attempts during my adolescence when it was cool to have this
small, cute little book with the tiny key that opened it the lock, keeping it's contents
private from the rest of the world.
Well, I followed through with His directive, complaining and grumbling all
the way down the stairs, barely awake up enough to realize what I was doing, still
sleepy when I reached down and tugged on the buried book.“God Calling” was a calendar
devotional that I put away upon receiving as a birthday present because my sole desire
was to hear only the Lord’s word, and the idea of “flowery verse” seemed so trivial
and didn’t interest me in the stage which I at. So in taking this book too the comfy
chair which I felt He directed me to, I plopped down (still with irritated attitude
and barely awake), I looked up and said, “OK lord, how about if I go to the exact
DAY that is listed for today and read that message first?” rebelling against what
I believed to be silly and legalistic at best.
Oh THANK you Lord, for your grace and patience with me!
(Isn’t it nice that he doesn’t smite us as the thousands in the desert who were
swallowed up in the ground after complaining about having to wait longer to comet
into the land of milk?!) I opened that devotional and I started to read the selected
devotion assigned for February 14th (Valentines day! I KNOW! Funny, huh?) and read:
“You do not realize that you would have broken down under the weight of your
cares but for the renewing time with Me. It is not what I say; it is I, Myself. It
is not the hearing Me so much as the being in My Presence. The strengthening and
curative powers of this you cannot know. Such knowledge is beyond your human reckoning.”....
I stopped suddenly and looked around, for I felt that I was not alone and I
also felt totally EXPOSED, my heart laid bare as if held hostage. I continued on:
“This would cure the poor sick world, if every day, each soul, or group of souls,
waited before Me. Remember, that you must never fail to keep this time apart with
Me. Gradually you will be transformed, physically, mentally, spiritually, into My
likeness. All who see you, or contact with you will be, by this intercourse with
you, brought near to Me, and gradually the influence will spread.”
“You are making one spot of earth a Holy Place, and though you must work and
spend yourself ceaselessly because that is for the present your appointed task, yet
the greatest work either of you can do, and are doing, is done in this time apart
with Me. Are you understanding that?”
“Do you know that every thought, every activity, every prayer, every longing
of the day is gathered up and offered to Me, now? Oh! Joy that I am with you. For
this I came to earth, to lead man back to spirit-converse with his God.”
I sat there for a long moment in silence, almost unable to move, still feeling
as if I were not alone, and in truth, I wasn't. The Lord knew exactly what I needed
to hear: He knew my heart cry for “more” and even showed me how to GET “more”. “God
Calling” is the book that I started my devotions with and is the daily writings of
two anonymous women in the 40's who call themselves, “The Listeners”. They lived
in England and were sick and impoverished, and came together in prayer daily, writing
down ONLY what they heard the Lord saying to them. You can find editions still out
there with or without journal space to write your OWN writings, or you can find them
online here; http://www.twolisteners.org/God%20Calling%20TOC.htm
To make a long story short, I set up my own “praise time” with prophetic praise
music (music written spontaneously “in the spirit” as people worshiped the Lord),
coming “into agreement” with the worshipers, as the Lord showed me that this also
releases an anointing.
Again, assuredly I tell you, that if two of you will agree on earth concerning anything
that they will ask, it will be done for them by my Father who is in heaven. (Matthew
I wrote down my prayers...and about 3 weeks later, I started to write and found myself
writing words from THE LORD HIMSELF! I listened and wrote what I believed I heard.
(I share some of these on “Letters from Daddy”)
“Oh Lord, could you BE that good!”
A month after that, as I continued in this time with the Lord each morning,
I started to doze off during worship time (well, I WAS pretty groggy as I came to
this activity upon rising and before doing anything else), only to wake up suddenly
from a dream I had, feeling guilty about “sleeping on the job”, with the Lord's words
in my head responding to what I had just seen - which ministered to me the areas
that I had been bringing to Him! I was having VISIONS! He was teaching me through
visions! (you can read more on our “Outpourings” page.
About a month after that, I started going to God's word BEFORE I did my writings
and other readings, and even MORE blessings occurred. I started out in worship,
listening to worship music and coming into agreement with the worshippers, loosing
myself in full adoration until I felt at peace, until I felt I was in the Lord's
I would then pick up my Bible, hold it to my chest and ask “Where Lord?”...and
then I would wait, listening, just as I listened for a small voice when I did my
writings. And then I heard it, that whisper that said a word, a chapter, and then
I waited and then heard the number to look up. The Lord ALWAYS ministers to me.
It was amazing and I KNOW that you cannot just open His word to any place and MAKE
it work to your circumstances, so this “coincidence” I KNEW was of the Lord. It’s
HIS DESIRE to encourage us and minister to us.
HE will minister to you!
I remembered in Ezekiel 34 where the Lord says “WOE to the Shepherds” because
they “did not bring back the lost, bind up the broken hearted and heal the sick”.
This was a HUGE revelation to me that we are SUPPOSED to heal the sick, being ABLE
to heal the sick. I was stuck on this concept for over a year as I so desperately
wanted to learn more about our true role in the church, that our life on this earth
is not our own and not for our own purposes, that we are ALL disciples if we call
Christ our savior, we are ALL supposed to be ministers of a sort.
When no one else is there, HE will minister to you!
Ok, that’s a whole other topic for discussion but I brought it up because I was reminded
of that while in prayer one morning and then the Lord said to me “what about the
REST of that...?” and so I went back to Ezekiel 34 and looked up the REST of that
chapter and this is what He said:
I will seek the lost, and I will bring back the strayed, and I will bind up the injured,
and I will strengthen the weak, and the fat and the strong I will destroy. I will
feed them in justice. (Ezekiel 34:16)
