Father of “Good” Things

It’s been a weird feeling over the past week to not even want to post because I’ve been ill; believe me, that rarely happens.

There’s still congestion in my head and chest, but God has seen to my right mind coming back after a few days’ bout with fever (which always stinks); it’s given me unprecedented, renewed appreciation for WATER.  Simple, refreshing, living-giving, hydrating W A T E R.  The only thing that truly quenches our body’s thirst.

Ain’t that just like Jesus?

Let’s face it, friends, that parallel is timeless and awesome.  JESUS IS THE ONLY ONE WHO QUENCHES EVERY THIRST.

I’ve been pretty thirsty over the years, and I’m not alone, I know.  All those substitutions we look to and count on to transform our lives by shoving them into the “Jesus” hole in us… unbelievable.

What I Believe

Some folks believe God created everyone with a hole in them that only He can fill.  I don’t believe that.

I believe God created us all in perfect condition… Adam and Eve were filled by God and His Presence, completely; that’s what I believe.  Then came the enemy and temptation and mankind’s acceptance of sin’s deadly invitation…

I believe sin ripped a hole into what was once God’s perfect creation.  Think about it – there are no voids or failures  in God or in His works, ever.  God didn’t create the sin principle in us, and God didn’t create that hole – sin did. Mankind’s agreement with satan ripped that gaping maw into our fiber when we threw God out as our one and only Source, Supply, and Answer – and our loving God has been trying to heal us of  evil deeds and refill that hole with Himself through reconciliation in Christ, ever since.

That’s what I believe.

All Good Things

So Christ has quenched my thirst this week, in spirit and in body, by bringing me back to good health and to my right mind in Him – devoid of feverish attacks and incoherence.  Everybody – especially writers – deeply appreciates clear thinking.  I know I do.

Infections bite!

So thank You, dear Abba, for filling the hole in me.  Thank You for water and sunshine and rain and cool night breezes and warm blankets in winter.  Thank You for filling every hole and every need and every desire of our hearts turned solemnly and righteously to You.  Thank You that You are always and only the Father of Good Things.

THANK YOU.

So… how’s it going?

(I cover all the words and testimony of this “anytime” blog with the Blood of Jesus the Christ of Nazareth Who came in the flesh, and I forbid the enemy or any of his minions or operatives any access to any of it at all, in Christ’s name. Amen.)

This is a beautiful site where I can talk freely about just how I feel having a new ministry of three blogs and a soon-to-be-online website for the Lord’s commissioning of my heart and hands.  I love the look of this site and God blessed me to design the header for it also.  I’d been telling my best friend and twin sister, Lynette, for months that I should just have a blog called 3 Blogs and a Website just so I could talk about the experience of having all of this from the Lord so quickly. It’s going well.

The Blogs

The first of three blogs, “Daddy’s Girl” is on its way to 2,000 views which it will probably reach before the end of March. The second blog, “Beyond the Veil: Encounters in Vision” is a weekly blog I started about one month after DG… it’s now on its way to 300 views with only seven posts thus far… marvelous results.  And the youngest of the blogs, actually on WordPress, “How Did I Get Into This Family?” reveals my testimony pretty much from soup to nuts.  It has gained tremendous momentum of late, with already over 100 views and only four posts. It’s also weekly.

The Website

Lord willing, soon the Glory Shield website goes live, too.  Wow.  WOW… three blogs and a website since November 2012 and the love lamp for writing is never going out, in Jesus’ Name I declare it! It’s pretty cool, you know, how although I’ve been writing all of my life, the absolute love and bathing in it has not hit me until this… until this mission from God.  This vision of His to spread His word and magnify His heart to the masses has hit my door like a well-timed mail delivery… and I am the grateful recipient.  Oh, man am I grateful!

I elaborate even more about the experience of being commissioned with these works in the menu page titled, “Why?” It expresses my heart and emotions up close and personal regarding why I’m here on what’s actually the fourth blog in a blessed collection – but it’s an “any time” effort, as I’ve said so, in a way, it’s just for me (though it’s open to anyone who’d like to get to know a bit more of me).  The Lord is merciful, as always, and is really catapulting the ministry work through the three major blogs and soon-to-be website around the world, y’all.

How’s it going?  Why, very well – thank you!
