Old Foul Spirit of Negativity



I really did not know what else to call this thing. The Lord showed me this in a dream. There is this miniature human, like a dwarf-imp; the bodily features are correctly proportioned. It was more the size of a toddler, but with gray hair. It sits around looking for a vulnerable person onto whom it can latch. Out of its mouth is this stuff (pretty disgusting really-like a flow of baby spit-up that never ceased). It was covered with it. So, in the dream it latched to me.

I ran everywhere trying to get rid of it. The harder I tried to push it off, the tighter it clung to me. I finally woke up from the dream; pleading the blood of Jesus to wash me from any spirit of the enemy (Satan). I asked the Lord for forgiveness for letting it near me in the first place and, finally, I asked him to root out anything that would have caused such a spirit to be attracted to me.

#Let Contentions Turn to Compassion

It has been a little while since I posted. I have been away from the computer for some growth and meditation time. Sometimes the Lord moves things out of the way so that he is the one to whom we go for help or conversation. Sometimes it is so that our own spouses are called for work or friends are not available. So JESUS is right there saying, okay everyone is gone. Care to give me a shot at your problem?

#Do You Really Know Jesus(Knowing Him on a Deeper Level))?

    When I was young, I went to church and heard the stories of Jesus and his many miracles: his birth, his life of healing, teachings, dominion over natural laws and ultimately his death and resurrection. I appreciated all I heard and began to love this Jesus for all he did for me. This was what I was raised to know through Sunday School and church attendance.
    As a young adult, I began to deal with some things from my childhood that I did not understand as a child. I committed sins on a regular basis to cope with some of the losses I experienced. Looking back to that time, I see how sensitive I was and how much I wanted to please Jesus and be close to him, but I kept falling short.

#Only Trust Him (Cure for Impatience)!

May 10, 2014

We all question the events in our lives when we lose those that are close to us, lose jobs that we had held for years, homes, money, retirement, dreams. We all ask the same question, Why? or why me? Why did God have to let this happen to me?

Job is the perfect example of this scenario, especially when his friends enter the scene and counsel him about his walk with God. Surely, the innocent would not be punished as your are (paraphrase). or You must not be a real Christian if you're broke or ill of health. God isn't smiling on you now is he? All the while we know we have done our best to stay close to the Lord and live the way we should according to his Word.

There are lessons (plural) to be learned in these times:

#Words do Hurt but Jesus Heals (Wounded by Words?)

5/5/2014

Words of violence and hatred are thrown across cyber-space and destroying others in what we call cyber-bullying. This includes the use of cell phones with internet and text capabilities. It really does not make a difference what manner or tool is used. It is still bullying; and it has been around for decades and even centuries. There is still damage at its wake.

Where Would I Be Without the Lord?

5/3/2014

I am truly grateful that the Lord is for me and I am for him. I know that it is for nothing but grace that I am able to look to him in love and devotion. If it were not for him I would be lost-totally lost. He has been better to me than I could ever be to myself.

I listened to a sermon today about the way we think as blood bought children of God. If we claim to be children of God (by regeneration) we cannot entertain the negative, fearful, worrisome, wrathful thoughts that come only from the devil himself.

A Work in Progress

May 2, 2014

Good evening and thanks to those who dropped by. Things are slowly coming along on this blog but I am encouraged; however, knowing that it will all turn out for the good and that many will be touched by its ministry. Construction is a little more difficult than I had expected, but I am learning as I go. It is a journey just to get this blog working the way I want it to work.

I hope to have more content in the near future.

Thank you for your patience; and God bless.

Welcome!

Welcome! 

Something has been itching me to start a blog. I know I do not have a famous name, wealth or pedigree as far as this world is concerned. I am a child of the king and beloved part of his Bride the Church. What I do have I give you; a look into my journey home. I will share my hopes, dreams, songs that moved me that are my works as well as others', books read, scripture from the Word of God that have lifted me in times of doubt and frustration as well as advice that I have gleaned along the way. 

My journey began as I turned my life, with its failures, fears, false securities, successes and future sights; over to the One true God-Jesus Christ. 

Again, this is my journey home to be with the best friend I have ever known! May this journey's blog encourage and build you as it has me! If you do not know him I pray that you will; and will join me in this wonderful journey to see Him face to face. 

Blessings in His Wonderful Name,

Kendra St John
