Our Joy....

Went to the Living Proof Simulcast this weekend. It was awesome to say the least. God spoke to my heart. Mandi also went..... I went to a church in our area. Mandi went to a church in Dothan, Ala. We were 200 miles apart but both listening to Beth Moore speak on Ps. 37.

You know God spoke to me ...and God spoke to Mandi.... He ministered to her heart and to mine. Not about the same thing.... but where we were both struggling. Isn't God faithful?

The Simulcast was in 516 different locations, 45 places in the United States and 8 different countries. Over 90,000 women.

One of things she shared was

Nothing dictates our lives like our desires. We are dictated by our desires. We need to transform our desires.....

Delight yourself also in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. Ps 37:4

She asked us what do you want your life to be... what do you want that dash on your gravestone to be about?

God sees the end from the beginning.

Another thing that spoke volumes to me.....

Nothing is passive about patiently waiting for desire to turn into delight.

If God has not turned our desires into delight we are NOT to give up... she said the hebrew word for *wait* means "anxious expectations" (up on our feet)....

Don't give up....

till faith becomes sight.... TRUST God and do good.

God will reward our perseverance of faith........

This helped me so very much. I have a sustaining longing (desire) that I have been praying about ... and the word that was spoken to me.. to all of us... to not give up that God is UP to something... to keep looking UP.

Yesterday in worship..... our music minister sang "Praise You in the storm" ~ I love the words....
"I lift my eyes unto the hills where does my Help come from.... my Help comes from the Lord, maker of heaven and earth"

As I took my Wyatt by the hand... and we walked down the middle isle of the church to tell our pastor and the church... that he had trusted Jesus as his Savior.... peace washed over me.

God sees the end from the beginning......

Only trust Him... only trust Him.....


  1. Such encouraging, hope-filled words Teena. I'm so glad the Lord spoke through Beth to both of you.
    I have been so blessed by her ministry.
    It is exciting to know that the Father delights to give us the desires of our heart - as we give our hearts to Him.

    Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Safari.
    I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know.
    The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon.
