I want to relate to some friends as ordinary friends, even though they are close to me. Then there are the friends who are extremely close to me – one is human, the other is God. I really am not super ultra close to anyone of flesh on earth other than my best friend and twin sister, Lynette. I’ve talked about her in the Daddy’s Girl blog and she is priceless to me.
There are others I consider very good friends and always have, but it rests there. I don’t want a laundry list of super ultra close friends… I’m not the type to have that – believe it or not, it’s because I’m waaay too private a person.
Blogging is actually the continuation of a move the Lord made back in 2009 when I self-published two books of visions that He’d actually given me in 2006. Sharing them with the world (when I cherished them so as “private matters” between me and God) was an awfully big step in my maturity and obedience in Him. Also, their time had come to be shared; they weren’t supposed to be shared any sooner than 2009 and I was definitely on board with that!
How Did I Get Into This Family?
The things the Lord has asked me to share in the one blog I have not talked about at length yet are EXTREMELY personal occurrences in the testimony of my life. But the time has come, and I now recognize it as truth where, for the sake of the growth and edification of the Body of Christ, I need to share these things just as God brought about the times and seasons for things to be shared with me by those He marked to nourish, counsel, and educate me in the things of His Spirit.
For this generation – it’s my time. I had that prophesied over me as well, and I believe it. Holy Spirit is doing mighty things through each of these blogs (and I cover that truth and testimony with the Blood of the Lord Jesus, and forbid the enemy or his flunkies any access to it whatsoever, in Jesus’ Name). How Did I Get Into This Family? is the blog of my testimony growing up as a child gifted with discerning of spirits. I pretty much tell people that my childhood was a basic side-by-side comparison of the righteous and the wicked mentioned in Psalm 1 –
“Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of God, and in his law he meditates day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water which brings forth its fruit in its season. His leaf also shall not wither, and whatsoever he does shall prosper. The ungodly are not so, but are like the chaff which the wind drives away; therefore, the ungodly shall not stand in the day of judgement, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the ungodly shall perish.”
Yep, that’s about it in a nutshell. That’s how I grew up with people in my house – those on the Lord’s side, and those not. Under Holy Spirit’s auspices, the blog’s unfolding the details of all that and my emotional bondages because of it, from which the Lord has been steadily freeing me. Praise God. God is the Master over it all, folks – the Master of FREEDOM from bondages big and small, the Master of MERCY, GOODNESS, KINDNESS, and UNDERSTANDING. The Master HEALER and FORGIVER. He’s enabling me to forgive AND He’s forgiving me, because no coin in existence has only one side… there are ALWAYS TWO SIDES to every “coin” and situation of life. Always. I forgive, but I must also allow God to show me where I must be forgiven for misunderstanding and maligning Him and His goodness over the years. I am so grateful He understands me FAR (more like lite-years) better than I understand myself.
The blog’s title comes from the very question I used to ask myself as I was trying to figure out (first mistake right there) why God would designate me a seer in His realm and then allow me to grow up in a household with… um, such interesting family members. The blog itself is accessible through the menu up top for your reading pleasure but, be advised, it’s not a “walk in the park” accounting. At times it’s pretty real and I’ve only just begun to explain things.
Anyway, I’m thankful that God has chosen this blog and its testimony for the benefit of those also who see in the spirit realm and who have received God’s faithful designations over their lives and want to ensure they are not crazy, only gifted. That’s a manna-sized mission for me, and I enjoy it personally every week.
I also still really enjoy sharing my thoughts here with the hearts and minds of people kind enough to stop by and also with plain old cyberspace. There’s something comforting for me about just sending my words out into space; there they reverberate and travel into eternity forever – did you know that? I didn’t, until a few years ago!
The secret to God-defined success in blogging is asking for the wisdom of the Lord before each post. When you sit down to share a work that could change someone’s life, my friends, FIRST pray to the Lord for His wisdom to share only those things HE WANTS SHARED. Pray for His Spirit of self-control that you will not share anything He doesn’t want shared. God had my Pastor tell me this – and she was right on in her hearing of Him in these areas, as usual. I am very grateful, and that humility mixed with my obedience is really taking the blogs to newer and higher heights of ministry each day. Amen.
God bless whoever is reading… Have a really nice day!
