Do not step into battles you are not meant to fight. For in so doing you can be taken out if wounded in those superfluous battles. Choose wisely before you engage. There are some battles you are called to but certainly not every single skirmish that presents itself.
Walk away from all disruptive spirits and situations to which you are not called. For with each such encounter you lose a piece of yourself. Your joy and peace are chipped away. Your heart corrodes (for it is always a heart issue) while doing little to theirs for that is where they
Someone asked me recently what fallback plan I had. Never really gave it much thought. I have been through a great deal in my life and I have come to know that as a human I can make any plan I want but ultimately God is in control.
Although I have been through things that truly would have taken many out of the game, He has seen me through every single circumstance. It was not easy at times to be sure. But, He was right there through it all.

Have you ever had a power outage that affects all communication? Where I live was hit by lightning several days ago and it affected internet, TV and phone and in some cases electric power. Crews are still working to bring many back up to full service. I am not a huge internet user or TV watcher but I must say when all access is cut off I realized how much I actually research online.

When you get caught up in the drama of the world you step off the Kingdom highway. You turn onto the wide road that leads to soul erosion. This world road is traveled by the majority so it can be subtly alluring. In the blink of an eye you can be on that road.
The Kingdom road is narrow for sure. Few find it. But, the Kingdom journey makes all the difference in the world.
Check the road signs. Check your heart (for it is always a heart issue). If you have wandered off the Kingdom road, get back on
Picture yourself walking along a path. You come upon a boulder in the center of the path. You can try to move it or just walk around it and continue on your journey. Next, you encounter a large rock, smaller than a boulder but large enough to clearly see it and avoid walking right into it.
Finally, there is a small rock which can easily be overlooked. Be careful that you do not stumble and trip over it for that could greatly impede if not completely stop your ability to go forward. Wounding or severe injury could result that could
Have you ever been rejected, abandoned, mistreated? I think most of us have been at least once. Some have been more than others. Some have developed deep roots of rejection that play out in every encounter and or relationship.
People will let you down at times. It is part of the human condition. To stay clear at the heart level (and it is always a heart issue) it is imperative to forgive every slight whether real or imagined, large or small.
When your heart stays clear you are better able to hear God’s direction. When your heart is clear you
