As I sat on the Metro train this morning, glancing at the tall statue like clock to check the time, the Lord spoke "It is time". Time for my people to come out of complacency and come into the very purpose of why they are created. We, especially as believers, must move out of the rituals of the world and begin to walk in a place of the heavenlies. We must not take on the attitude of heaven is my waiting place but begin to live in the heavenly realm now!! For you what has the Father spoken to you about you and the very purpose of you coming into the earth - Stop the busyness, listen and then be obedient. "It is time for you!!!!
Jeremiah 29:11 - For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

Morning... regardless of how bad yesterday was, no matter the wrong choices we made, this morning is new. I love mornings because of the opportunity to do differently, see differently and experience something that I have never experienced. His tender mercies are new each and every morning. So... look for the new mercies and benefits that He loads us with daily. Don't miss it by complaining about what is not or blaming yourself, but be excited and look for what is new. Good morning!!!!
Lamentation 3:22-23 - It is of the Lord mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassion fail not. They are new every morning; great is thy faithfulness.
Psalm 69:19 - Blessed be the Lord who daily loadeth us with benefits even the God of our salvation.

Several months ago I had a dream of standing at the bank of a river. There were people traveling the different roads to the river like me. We all crossed the river each day to get to the other side where we worked. This particular day the river was high. I stood and watched the first person step in and the water came to mid-chest. The second person stepped in and went a little further and the water covered their head. I stood there wondering how I was going to get to work because I couldn't swim (even in the natural I can't swim). As I stood there, two lady friends walked up and asked me if I was going to work. I responded that the river was too high and I couldn't swim. They assured me not to worry because they would hold me on each side and get me across. When I woke the Lord spoke to me to not be afraid to step into the deep and that He had already positioned those to help me get to the other side… destiny. So…, what has God spoken to you through dreams and visions with interpretation to take you further on your road of destiny? It is not enough to have dreams and visions, but what do we do then. Let us take the necessary steps to get to the other side for what awaits us. Push away from the shoreline of comfort and familiarity. See you there!!!!!!
