There is always hope | God’s glory can always be seen, no matter the season | 

Have you ever read the call of Ezekiel? In a small section of 10 verses and  the Lord used the phrase “rebellious house,” or “rebelled” four times, one time after another. If there is ever something being repeated, it is a pretty good indicator that someone should be taking note of what is being said. The Lord is sending Ezekiel to a people who most likely won’t obey the word of the Lord, but the Lord is going out and saying, “Hey! Ezekiel! I see you. I see the people that are your brothers, that don’t listen, but I see your heart, and I want you. I want to use you and I want you to succeed. I see your different, so here is what I have for you— what do you think?” God called him to be different, but just like the people of Israel had a choice to whether or not they were going to listen to the word of the Lord, Ezekiel had a choice to not respond to the calling that the Lord had for him. However, Ezekiel responded and decided to walk with the Lord. What would you believe the implications would be to respond “yes” to this call? Ezekiel was being compared to every person that he has ever known and to every person he most likely ever meet, and was told that they are rebellious— they don’t know the Lord, and they don’t listen to the Lord, but you Ezekiel, will you be different? Ezekiel seems to be a processor type personality, so at first I think this call would just be a shock, but as he would be thinking more about the Lord and what he is calling him into, how he will be emotionally separated from his loved ones and friends, because he knows that the message he will be given will probably cause divisions between them and what they believe, but I believe that there was something deep inside of Ezekiel that would have always told him that he was created for something different and would feel the pieces of his soul being placed together. With all of these things just being thrown around his brain, he would also be thinking about the vision of the Lord that he has just witnessed, not being about to deny the greatness and the power of what he has just expirenced. Ezekiel would be picturing the majesty, the awe, the beauty. Ezekiel had an experience with the Lord that no one could ever talk him out of having happened or tell him what the glory of the Lord was not, because it was so personal and real, and that *knowing the Lord* is what empowers Ezekiel to take up his calling and walk. 

» What have you asked God for? What prayers have you prayed, radical prayers to do something that no one else has done, to change the world, to be a networker in which the impossible finds the possible, to be different for the sake of Christ. I know in my life, I have often prayed radical prayers to venture out and do what no other has done before, but forget that sometimes that journey is one that strips us from the things that may hold us back, people, places, the land of familiar. I know that God will not give us anything that we have not asked for- and often times we forget what we have even asked for. We sing songs about giving it all to Lord, trusting that He would make something beautiful out of us, to walk on to the waters where feet may fail, but lean not on our own understanding and allow our lives to be in the hands of the Creator. Do we truly understand the implications of the words that we are giving power to in our lives? Do we understand the difference from believing in a God, and being in love with Him? 

What is it that you feel the Lord is calling you into? What are the dreams of your heart that you pray God use you to accomplish?

> Don’t forget the prayers deep inside your heart that the Lord is calling to the service. God prophetically proclaims what we can do, and He supernaturally enables us to do it—sometimes that comes with a process however. 

Truth

**Holiness begins in the mind.**

»Our thinking effects how we act and react to the world around us. If one wants to know what a person believes, watch their life. Our actions will become the mirror into the patters of our thinking. This is a sobering thought into the vulnerability of our insides being seeped out into the hostile world around us. The things that man keeps hidden inside will made it’s way into the surface. Because of this thought, the things we keep cultivated inside are vitally important. The mind is a fascinating living organism, storing and sorting through memories and information. These waves of information and memories send messages to the rest of our bodies, effecting our hearing, seeing, touch and feelings. All of these waves of information our virtually closed off to the outside world. There are thought that never verbally make it to the surface in the expression of sound and words, but get transmitted either though action or expression. Emotions betray that which man tries to hide from the world. Once the things that are inside are out and exposed, they then become something that can tangibly be dealt with. Once the patters of our minds are manicured into health, our lives will begin to reflect the thought that we carry about ourselves, about God and about others.

Today I got inner healing and broke off curses spoken over me during my time of conception through the months I was growing in my mothers womb to the time I was birthed. Month by month I went through my creation process. It is amazing to realize the battle that is raged over something that seems to start out so insignificant as a sperm and an egg joining together.  How I have learned that the enemy would have liked to hold me bondage to believing I was a mistake, but I know I have been protected through it all. My timing was perfect and my gender sparked a joyous celebration in heaven.
This picture that I have taken of a shark egg reminds me of the worth and purposefulness of every living creature—especially the time in the womb, or in this case the egg, This picture speaks to me how every season and process in our life matters and effects the atmosphere, people and generation we are living in. I believe that God is not careless in His creation and that He is not causeless either.

Books enable one to step into a new world, to expand ones sense of reality and dares them to think, dream and live bigger than they already are.
