This week, I was reminded about the importance of time. Throughout the course of my friendships and relationships, I have been reminded to slow down and enjoy the sweeter things of life. To me, after being close to death and being involved in the new age, I am not caught up in things of this world, and that has been hard for people to grasp at times. I have learned what is important to me and what is simply a trap of this world. However, through that mindset, I started to lose precious moments with others becoming hyper focused, and ironically, losing some of the lessons that I lost through those experiences.
I was reminded by LaRette of simple connection this week. The ability to simple enjoy another persons presence or gaze or reading the Word together, and how powerful that can be. So many times, Satan and the elites of this world have us engaged in things that simply do not matter one bit. As I left work on Wednesday night, I was exhausted. I know in my heart we are not meant to be enslaved sheep on this planet, and it is only going to get worse unless we fight the current tyranny that is going on.
I rested in Jesus that night. It was the only thing I could do. I rested in the love of the Lord and that Lord is my strength and refuge.
About a year ago or so, I ran into people who told me I needed to get into praise music and worship music. One day, while listening to darkness and phone call after phone call at work, I was lead to the Upper Room In Dallas, Texas. I was brought to tears with the music and filled with the presence of the Holy Spirit. I cannot tell you how much I needed that music on that day. It was heavy. We were short staffed, but the presence of the Holy Spirit filled me immediately.
For this week, I wanted to share one of the artists who has touched my life. Her name is Abbie Gamboa. She just came out with a new album. Her song pure is so deep. I wanted to share her song from a live session that was recorded at the church. Her out pouring of love and humility and praying for purity, and to love Christ and others without agenda left me in tears at the gym this week.
For accountability goals this week, I am asking my readers or those who are new to me, to focus on this song and getting your priorities in order. Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to you areas where the elites and Satan has you engaged in that are keeping you from fulfilling God’s purpose for you on earth. Thank Jesus for the purity of your heart. For those that you have been neglecting or taking for granted, tell them you love them. Make them a priority. It had been a few months since I had talked to a close friend, and some time and distance had been needed. She is a single mother, and one of the best people I have ever met. She has helped to shape me into a more Godly man, and without her love and support throughout the years, I would not be who I am today. She has held me accountable and helped me to become purer, closer to the Lord. JL, I thank you for that. Meditate on the song pure by Abbie Gamboa in the link provided below. I encourage you to buy her new album on I-Tunes as well. Thanks!
