I just want to BE WITH HIM

This month of consecration has been a marvelous journey and my heart just longs for the Lord like never before. I'm not overwhelmed by the circumstances and situations surrounding life and ministry. I see the Lord seated on the throne, exalted. And the train of His robe fills the temple with Glory. And the whole earth is filled with His Glory. Our God is greater, Our God is stronger. Our God is higher than any other. Our God is healer, Awesome in power...Our God, Our God. What a mighty God we serve! Angels bow before Him; Heaven and earth adores Him. What a mighty God we serve! Nothing is hidden from Him. Nothing is too hard for the Lord.

I haven't been as consistent as I should have been and haven't always stayed on schedule with my Bible reading plan, but it's okay. So many times the Lord just called me to sit and wait in His presence. It happened so many times that I realized He was trying to make a point. I needed to just BE with Him. The more I am just WITH Him, the more I see Him. The more I see Him, the more I want to see Him. So many earthly desires and longings are fading away. Success is not based upon the number of people that attend on Sundays. My self esteem and self worth is not measured by notoriety or fame.

I just want to BE WITH HIM.

31 Days of Consecration

The Lord has put it on my heart to begin 31 days of consecration during the entire month of October. I’m not calling the entire church family to do it, although any and all who feel the same way can participate. It will be a month of prayer, fasting and communing with the Lord. He’s put in my spirit to drop TV and video watching from my daily routine and spend that time in the word and prayer.

Fasting will be part of my daily and weekend schedule. I just know that HE’s calling me away with Him. So I may not be blogging for a while and that’s okay. This will be very personal and private, so if you don’t hear from me for a while, that’s what is going on with me this month.

This is day-1, and the Lord woke me up at 5:00 am. We have a walk-in closet and I’ve made some space in there to go in and just stretch out and pray. He’s already given me the focus for the month and it comes from one of my absolute most favorite worship songs.

It came up out of spirit during this morning's prayer .With all that’s going on in the world, the Bishop Long scandal, the violence, the turmoil, the disasters and the heavy demonic waves that always come forth in October, God has given me the focus. In case someone reads this and desires to join with me and us, during this month, the focus is simple. ALL I NEED IS YOU, LORD…
