    My Home

    Eternal Lord upon the Throne
    Safety is found in You alone
    Righteous King, Sovereign One
    Who compares to You?
    There’s none
    Take away all that I have earned
    I have no loss
    For You I yearn

    The beauty of the shining ones
    surrounds me
    But then I see the despair
    Of those who sought another
    How could they compare
    I refuse to put my eyes with any aspiration
    of hope elsewhere

    My eyes need to see Your beauty
    Your goodness, Your Face
    My heart needs to be filled with
    Your promises, Your peace, Your grace
    My ears need to receive
    Your word, Your tone, Your sound
    My lips need to bring forth fruit
    From the tree where
    life and love abound
    I bless You, Wise and
    Righteous King
    To You my heart and mind
    will cling
    Instruct my mind through the day with gold
    And through the night, my heart behold

    How can I fear lions attempting to roar
    But cannot when they see
    I’m the one You adore
    I do not tremble, I do not shake
    I do not quiver, I do not quake

    This is my life
    Earthly wealth is far from me but
    I have treasure stored up,
    Though few walk with me
    I’m never alone
    For You are always near
    Though my dwelling place fall apart
    You alone are my home
    You are beauty
    In You, my body rests and has joy

    The Voice Translation

    Matthew 13:52 Every scribe and teacher of the law who has become a student of the ways of the Kingdom is like the head of the household who brings some new things and some old things, both out of the storeroom.

    Psalm 84:1 How lovely is Your temple, Your dwelling place on earth,
        O Eternal One, Commander of heaven’s armies.
    How I long to be there—my soul is spent,
        wanting, waiting to walk in the courts of the Eternal.
    My whole being sings joyfully
        to the living God.
    Just as the sparrow seeks her home,
        and the swallow finds in her own nest
        a place to lay her young,
    I, too, seek Your altars, my King and my God,
        Commander of heaven’s armies.
    How blessed are those who make Your house their home,
        who live with You;
        they are constantly praising You.

    Psalm 16:1 Protect me, God
    , for the only safety I know is found in the moments I seek You.
    I told You, Eternal One, “You are my Lord,
        for the only good I know in this world is found in You alone.”

    The beauty of faith-filled people encompasses me.
        They are true, and my heart is thrilled beyond measure.
    All the while the despair of many,
        who abandoned Your goodness for the empty promises of false gods, increases day by day.
    I refuse to pour out blood offerings,
        to utter their names from my lips.

    You, Eternal One, are my sustenance and my life-giving cup.
        In that cup, You hold my future and my eternal riches.
    My home is surrounded in beauty;
        You have gifted me with abundance and a rich legacy.

    I will bless the Eternal, whose wise teaching orchestrates my days
        and centers my mind at night.
    He is ever present with me;
        at all times He goes before me.
    I will not live in fear or abandon my calling
        because He stands at my right hand.

    This is a good life—my heart is glad, my soul is full of joy,
        and my body is at rest.
        Who could want for more?
    10 You will not abandon me to experience death and the grave
        or leave me to rot alone.

    11 Instead, You direct me on the path that leads to a beautiful life.
        As I walk with You, the pleasures are never-ending,
        and I know true joy and contentment.

  • It’s Not Too Late for a Diet Change

    Avoid the processed food – food that has been broken down and pulverized so that it is more palatable but void of substance.
    Remember when the tares and the wheat are sifted, it will be the wheat which has bowed low in maturation, full of substance and nutrients, that will be spared.

    Matthew 16:5 Now when His disciples had come to the other side, they had forgotten to take bread.
    v 6 Then Jesus said to them, “Take heed and beware of the [c]leaven of the Pharisees and the Sadducees.”

    7 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, “It is because we have taken no bread.”

    8 But Jesus, being aware of it, said to them, “O you of little faith, why do you reason among yourselves because you have brought no bread?

    9Do you not yet understand, or remember the five loaves of the five thousand and how many baskets you took up?

    10 Nor the seven loaves of the four thousand and how many large baskets you took up?

    11 How is it you do not understand that I did not speak to you concerning bread?—but to beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees.”

    12 Then they understood that He did not tell them to beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and Sadducees.

    Leaven – added to the dough to make it puffed up, rise, palatable. It’s the stuff we add to God’s word to make it more appealing and give us a sense of satisfaction.

    While people are looking for words from the Lord; they will be found by those who are speaking few.

    Amos 8:11 (The Voice Translation)

    The Eternal Lord says,

    Eternal One: The days are coming
            when I will send a famine on the land—
        Not a hunger for food or thirst for water,
            but starvation for the words of the Eternal.
    12     People will stagger from the Dead Sea to the Mediterranean Sea,
            and from the north to the east;
        They will run everywhere, desperate to hear the voice of the Eternal One,
            but they will not hear it.

    We eat what we crave
    We crave what we eat
    We eat what we crave
    We crave what we eat

    They feed the belly til they’re full
    Still they starve, still they drool
    They read and read enough to learn
    Still they starve, still they yearn
    Famine is coming, but not for bread
    Still they eat, but they will dread
    Hunger will be for words of life
    No longer processed for them.

    It’s not too late to start discerning the true word of the Lord.

  • 2001 Journal Entry

    I’m cleaning out the contents of my home – years of “stuff” stored up that I don’t need and can no longer keep. I don’t know what treasures I have with all this stuff.

    I found an old prayer journal from 2001. I was almost going to throw it away as there wasn’t much significance in it; prayer requests for older coworkers mostly. But I came upon this entry:

    9-10-01- Dreamt of being by a river with a huge helicopter being unveiled. I realized this river was in Stratford, Ct, on the other side of the bridge from Sikorsky Helicopter. My dream was in color.

    Sikorsky is a large helicopter factory where I worked as a young woman. I riveted military helicopters like the BlackHawk, SeaHawk and even parts for AirForce One. It wasn’t unusual to dream the above, except my dream was on Sept 10, 2001 and I hadn’t worked there since 1981. I also no longer lived in CT. I lived in Florida for 15 years by this time.

    9-11-01 – U.S. Attacked! Both Trade Towers hit by hijacked planes. The Pentagon hit. Speculation as to Osama Bin Laden responsible. Thousands of lives lost. U.S. to retaliate. I have never seen war. As a child growing up, I watched my uncle go to Vietnam and seeing soldiers everywhere, but I have never known war.

    9-12-01 – The reality has not hit me yet. There is a quiet somber but as I watch the news, I feel very distant. I don’t like that I’m feeling distant. Thoughts go through my mind about lack of compassion, but I am reminded that I have trained myself over the years to be emotionally detached from trauma, especially when I can do nothing about it. I can only look for opportunities to comfort, encourage, be a light for Jesus, tell others what the word of God says about things. I think this is the beginning of sorrows.
    It is a pretty popular opinion of the churches in America, these churches who study biblical prophecy, that this is the beginning of the end. Many may have not had thoughts about God, and some do not even still, but it would be a good time to think about Him. From my thoughts, it should be a priority to get understanding.

    9-13-01 Pray for President and family, VP and family, Congress, CIA, FBI, Local Law Enforcement
    Pray Psalm 91 over our nation
    2 Chronicles 7:14
    Pride, Pride, Pride, Pride
    Laodicea – Rev 3

    What I’m hearing on the news: We WILL, We WILL, We WILL (Isaiah 14:13, 14 For you have said in your heart:
    ‘I will ascend into heaven,
    I will exalt my throne above the stars of God;
    I will also sit on the mount of the congregation
    On the farthest sides of the north;
    14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds,
    I will be like the Most High.’

    Ted Koppel, Sunday night 9-16 “the American people are getting angrier”

    My prayer: Our victory depends on our hearts turning back to the Lord – NOT our ANGER, or STRENGTH. We won’t win by our own strength. Pray for REPENTANCE!

    9-17 -01- Fireman who went into (ground zero nyc) said on the news “It’s like the gates of hell in there”
    John McWethy said OBL and entire force went underground. Bad news.
    Bad news bad news bad news.
    Good news
    John 3:16-18
    Luke 2:10,11
    Psalm 27:13,14 I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living – wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.

    That was it. Nothing much of significance but I felt it was important to capture this morning. Why?

    I’m cleaning out my house today. All this STUFF has bogged me down and I’ve lost sight of what I truly have.

    Words the Lord has given.

    So much stuff.

    Back to my reading. Psalm 75 catches my attention.

    Some translations say “when the earth and all its inhabitants dissolve”
    That caught my attention today.

    From The Treasury of David, by Charles Spurgeon
    Psalm 75:2. When I shall receive the congregation I will judge uprightly. This is generally believed to be the voice of God, who will, when he accepts his people, mount his judgment seat and avenge their cause in righteousness. It is rendered by some, “I will take a set time; “and by others, “I will seize the moment.”

    “God never is before his time,
    He is never too late.”

    He determines the period of interposition, and when that arrives swift are his blows and sure are his deliverances. God sends no delegated judge, but sits himself upon the throne. O Lord, let thy set time come for grace. Tarry no longer, but for the truth and the throne of Jesus be thou speedily at work. Let the appointed assize come, O Jesus, and sit thou on thy throne to judge the world in equity.

    3. The earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved. When anarchy is abroad, and tyrants are in power, everything is unloosed, dissolution threatens all things, the solid mountains of government melt as wax; but even then the Lord upholds and sustains the right. I bear up the pillars of it. Hence, there is no real cause for fear. While the pillars stand, and stand they must for God upholds them, the house will brave out the storm. In the day of the Lord’s appearing a general melting will take place, but in that day our covenant God will be the sure support of our confidence.

    “How can I sink with such a prop
    As my eternal God,
    Who bears the earth’s huge pillars up,
    And spreads the heavens abroad.”

  • A Keystone Connection?

    The keystone metaphor. The keystone is the component of a structure that is irreplaceable. Without the keystone, a structure could be reassembled, but could never be the same as if the keystone were present and functioning in its role.

    POTUS opened the door of all doors. Expand your thinking. What is the keystone? Q

    Some of us come here to drop crumbs, just crumbs. POTUS is 100% insulated – any discussion suggesting he’s even a target is false.

    Is Epstein the keystone, having the key to it all that takes everyone down? Think Epstein’s client list. Who had that information?
    Who ALSO has that information?
    Did the FBI want that information?

    Expand your thinking.

    It’s not just the world stage – what you see happening right now will sweep through the church!

    Wake up!
    Open eyes!
    Be alert!
    Get ready!

    Isaiah 22:22 The key of the house of David
    I will lay on his shoulder;
    So he shall open, and no one shall shut;
    And he shall shut, and no one shall open.

    When You Know the Playbook

    Psalm 11:1 In the Lord I put my trust;
    How can you say to my soul,
    Flee as a BIrd to your mountain”?

    When you know the Playbook (language)

    Do you really believe he did not see this coming?
    Do you really believe he was caught off-guard?
    Do you really believe there was damning evidence?
    Do you really believe he’ll be feathered and tarred?

    He knows the playbook.
    When you know, you know.
    Stop saying “Oh no! We’re doomed! We’re going up soon!”
    Stop saying “Oh me! Oh my! It’s time to fly!”
    Stop saying “Oh Please! Oh Please!” as if to beg
    Remember Jael knew how to use a tent peg
    Right in her kitchen.

    Judges 4:21 Then Jael, Heber’s wife, took a tent peg and took a hammer in her hand, and went softly to him and drove the peg into his temple, and it went down into the ground; for he was fast asleep and weary. So he died.

    Romans 41:11 By this I know that You are well pleased with me,
    Because my enemy does not triumph over me.

    The Lord is not just pleased with us because we make good, upright, moral decisions. He is pleased with us when we trust Him TO USE US TO SLAY THE ENEMY! We need to know the playbook.

    We are overcomers, not merely undergoers!

    Definition of overcome

    transitive verb

    1 : to get the better of : surmount overcome difficulties They overcame the enemy.

    Definition of undergo

    transitive verb

    1 : to submit to : endure

And Jesus said to them, “Therefore every scribe who has become a disciple of the kingdom of heaven is like a head of a household, who brings out of his treasure new things and old.” Matthew 13:52
