Websites, Worship, and Anniversaries

I had a fabulous time with the Lord on Monday and realized it was the one-year anniversary of the Glory Shield Ministries website.  God made my heart so light and joyous as I wept and worshiped Him, I wrote down the freeing thoughts that crossed my mind about our times of intimacy…

While we give our hearts to God laying on our faces before Him, His Holy Spirit softly removes all the heartache from our consciousness… the weight of oppression disappears along with pressures, hangups, misunderstandings… all the things that drag our focus away from mighty Abba.

The entanglements and the Lord then “throw down” right before us, and the Lord kicks satan’s butt.  The enemy is but a fly on the table of this world before the Presence of Almighty God (I love that analogy!); God’s big finger flicks him all the way across the Sea of the Forgetfulness and makes him take a look.  The sea laughs and cries out to him, “all your tauntings are forsaken! And the sins that you provoked exist no more in God’s beloved!”

When we rise from time with Abba, there remains a clean space shining, and our hearts burst forth with the JOY of soaring far above each circumstance.

Hey, tell me… WHO is like our God?

Happy Anniversary, Glory Shield!

Thoughts on Summer and God

Lord willing, this will be the first summer I experience since starting the blogs and website.

Daddy’s Girl was born in November 2012, followed quickly by Beyond the Veil, the testimony blog many of you are familiar with called “How Did I Get Into This Family?”, and then the Glory Shield Ministries website.  This diary blog brought up the tail end praising God for all He’s wrought.  Boom, boom, boom… His progress in me has been great over nearly eight months!

Now the flourishing green of summer is upon us!  It is my favorite season; always has been.  My writing does very well in summer (I cover my words and testimony with the Blood of Jesus, as always).  The blogs should do well also.

Right now in New Jersey it’s raining off and on, as it has been over the past two days.  We’ve needed the rain and I’m glad to have it.  God revealed also to my pastor that His rain is often symbolic of Holy Spirit’s outpouring.  That’s a nifty thing.

I look forward to producing more and more on the Glory Shield website, especially since I’m feeling better; it’s been a lesson in great love and perseverance starting that site.  I’ve wanted to do so for quite some time, but I’ve only been truly “ready” since February when we flashed on the air by God’s grace and power.

Ever been in heaven with what you’re doing?  Ever been so delighted you’re practically beside yourself with JOY? That’s how I am feeling right now, Saints… and I praise God for it all because He’s the Author of it.  I asked Him for a way to use the teaching gift He’s given me.  I asked Him to expand my writing abilities and avenues, and He’s done it.  He’s done just that in answer to prayer, but also in fulfillment of His pre-planned destiny for me since before I even knew how to write or picked up a pen!

God is amazing.

The luscious, velvety green of summer is His, too, you know… and I look forward to praising Him in it.  Amen.

Oh, yes… there’s also a kind of quietly beautiful poetry site I’ve recently begun at poeticverse.weebly.com. Stop by soon, won’t you?  =0)

Truth is, I’m SO Glad!

The website makes me SO happy!

Ever just smile and smile and beam and beam within your spirit for seemingly no reason at all?

Well, I’ll tell you what… it’s NEVER for “no reason” – Jesus is ALWAYS the reason!

The Glory Shield website got its first subscriber today – mainly this late because it’s taken me a while to get my plug-ins and widgets together – and I am just THRILLED to pieces about it!  It’s so important to get the word out and the work out and the message out the way God wants it… oh, He’s in charge of all that all right – but my “ducks in a row” is a matter of obedience, and I’ve really been focusing on that.  It has paid off waaaay before now, you understand, but seeing that first bright subscription was a manifest encouragement Abba knew that I needed!  God didn’t need it – I did.

God is good.

But I just love teaching and preaching and writing, writing, writing… I love changing the look of the site and adding things here and there as God directs.  I love HIM – period.  Truth is, I’m more than happy today, friends (happiness is transient) – I’m FULL OF JOY! And I want to write about it!  I feel like a kid in a candy store! I love serving God and others through the ministry blogs and the website and ALL that God has given me to proclaim His Name, His Fame, and His G O O D N E S S!   Hooraaay! My heart is glad and my soul is truly rejoicing in God my Savior…!  Amen.

I write when I’m Joyous, I write when I’m angry, I write when I’m sad, I write when I’m disheartened, I write when I’m warm and fuzzy, I just write, write, write, write and TODAY I’M FULL OF JOY AND HIS GRATITUDE FOR LIVING LIFE ETERNAL WITHIN ME!  I’m where I am most of the time, truth be told… I just don’t write enough about it, I guess.

Thoughts of Joy zig in and out – thoughts of Joy just zag around;

I’m rejoicing with a shout – full of Love where God abounds!

And may His awesome JOY remain… to infinity, and beyond! (I just love Buzz…)
