Also 'Aligning your soul with the goodness of God'
Have you ever noticed the cross, the tree Jesus was hung on is a plus sign ???
This verse is a plus sign to me...
Romans 8:38-39 NIV
"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord"
This week God says to tell them to live on purpose, spend time with Him and He will tell you how...
He will reveal secrets and give revelations to what you know. Read below article on 'Aligning your soul with the goodness of God"
Cleansing N Uplifting Prayer
Scripture Passage: John 10:22-32

Even though Christmas is past...
Remember Jesus is the reason for the season !!!   I also beleive we are the reason He came....
    Here is my prayer for this time of year; The mystery of Christmas draws near & the Festival of Lights celebration, Hanaka
Father, thank You for the gifts and blessings You’ve given me. As the rededication of light & the mystery of Christmas draws near I close the year with love and forgiveness. Reflection of time gone by & still I try that I might the log from my eye. My prayer is a Christmas wish that all the humankind in this the world know You & one another better, to live as brothers and sisters in peace, understanding that we are children of the same Father. Revealing to them Your beauty, grace, and real love; Especially Your mysteries of promises, love & grace. Blessing all of us Your infinite wisdom and tender mercies and knowing the Shekinah Glory...
Also Thank You for keeping me on track and ordering my steps so I keep on soaring and exploring love & Your word. May I always know how to cowboy-up Jesus, that I can grab leather, then with a shout without any doubt with my unshakable faith that mountain steps aside. Oh Papa renew my mind & restore my body, keep me close to You always as I set my love on You in Jesus’ name I pray on this day and every day. Amen.

Now right now there is a blanket of hope.
2012 is a year that you can refire, ignite those old dreams, rekindle love, for God's favor abounds this year. It is time to get close to Papa God, if He is not your Abba it is time to look at Father God in a new light. Start a relationship with Him. It is time to go fishing and play catch with Him so to speak... He is giving out favor for those who ask. missed opotunities are realigned, gardens of druaght are restored, dreams awakened. The blankett of HOPE is there even in times of difficulty. It is time to be prophetically wise and proclaim what it is you are rekindling... speak it aloud. Carry your dreams and goals in your pockett and speak them often. Spend time with God when ever you can. Soak in His presence every chance you have. Love Him, ask Him and He will give. Hope abpounds in 2012 if you allow the words Come, allow, recieve and forbid where thay are applicable.

Spirit blessings awaits, meditate and marinate in your secret garden. Remember everything has a season. We have to prepare for each season so we can enjoy them. Start speaking today right now in what you want it to be, “Something Good is going to happen”. It’s fall and I brought in and stacked wood and trimmed the trees so they can hibernate the winter. What are you doing for your soul for up coming season?

2nd Tim. 1:6&7, NKJ “Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you...” For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
   Do you need some freshness, some get-up n go in your life right now? How about a little stirring of your gifts? You may simply need to ask God to stir up what He has placed on the inside of you and cleanse you. Wake up those gifts, Bring back those dreams, Revive those talents inside. What you wait’n fer get a long…
   Haven’t you ever heard of a one-track mind? The enemy likes to plant a thought in your mind, then over time it becomes a belief. Before we know it, he has made a stronghold in you. Thank God there is a way of deliverance. “I will meditate in Thy precepts, and have respect unto Thy ways.” Psalm 119:15. Meditate on see John 15:3; 16:24;17:17; & Eph. 5:26; Rm.5:2. We need to hope on purpose, love on purpose, declare joy on purpose, rejoice in our problems on purpose.
    Go to your Secret Garden and meditate soak in His presence. God’s Word cleanses you when you submit unto Him & ask. I can picture myself going around the barn yard and stalls, cleaning up the dung, pitching it into the wheel barrow, cleaning up the place happens because I do it, someone has to do it or it would over run the place, I would be walking in it, let alone that stink. That is what Lord Jesus does to your mind, sending the angels out in cleaning up strongholds & filth in us, and carting it out. Praise God, Hallelujah! Supernatural cleansing powers can sweep over & through you right now. Let the fresh winds of your Holy Spirit blow through your temple cleansing your body & mind making you holy and pure again. 2nd Tim. 1:6&7, NKJ “Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you...” For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
My Prayer, what’s yer’n…? It’s OK use mine, you can even make your own. God loves original, it does not have to be spelled right or even have correct Kings English just from the heart.
  Oh Father God in heaven, I come humbly to You, I submit myself as a living sacrifice. I give You my past, my disappointments, my brokenness. I ask that You to sanctify me & take out the bad strong holds and ideas of satan. Fill me with Your hope and expectation and give me the dreams and desires that You have in store for my life. Stir me up. Thank You Papa God. I pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
  Now you are stirred so start thinking hope n love, stop living with a wishbone and live with back bone, be on purpose in joy. Choose to be a blessing to somebody. Choose to love your work or school. Declare I am going to have a good day… self talk is where you are and where you are going so speak something good. Most of all speak to your mountain. Mark 11:23 … whoever says to this mountain,`Be removed and be cast into the sea,… by this one thing there is no body that is not without hope, everyone has a chance and second chance over and over, there is nothing impossible with God. Speak good stuff into your life…

Happy Trails & yer trials

Aligning your soul with the goodness of God

“I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master's business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.” (John 15:15 NIV) “He is a God who is passionate about his relationship with you” (Exodus 34:14 NLT). “He made the entire human race and made the earth hospitable, with plenty of time and space for living so we could seek after God, and not just grope around in the dark but actually find him” (Acts 17:26–27 MSG). .
Knowing and loving God is our greatest privilege, and being known and loved is God’s greatest pleasure. God says, “If any want to boast, they should boast that they know and understand me .… These are the things that please me” (Jeremiah 9:24 TEV). It’s difficult to imagine how an intimate friendship is possible between an omnipotent, invisible, perfect God and a finite, sinful human being. I ask you in what ways can you pursue a deeper relationship with God? What do you think about the truth that the Creator of the universe desires an intimate relationship with you?

    You have to understand who you are and what you are. You are a spirit with a soul living in an earthly body known as the flesh. It is kinda like when a man takes a walk in space he has to have a space suit in order to go out into an environment that is not conducive to his body. He is able to walk in space and get the job done. Yet take note his space suit does not tell him what to do or how to do it, it warns him of danger and lets him know when all is OK. This is what we humans do we our spirit and soul live in a suit (the body) that enables us to express ourselves and function in the world. The problem we let our body tell us what to do by our senses.
       Understanding the three part make up of man 1stThess. 5:23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Your spirit lays blameless, understanding we are 3 part beings. Spirit, soul, body… My spirit is sanctified wholly is blameless. This what I am talking about aligning the spirit, soul and the body follows.
      Remember God made us in His image and He is a trinity God (I am not going into that you have to research that, it is basics of Christianity). When God took a piece of ‘Himself’ and made man, He made me in His image and I am part of Him Wow that is so cool to me. We have to understand we are a spirit being that has a soul, and you live in a physical body. You have to have a body to be able to expression in this world. 
      People live in this world not knowing this and it takes the discovery of Christianity that defines who and what you are. When you get saved it is your spirit and it is reborn and perfected with the same thing Holy Spirit has. God poured the love and everything you need in your walk in Christ.
2ndCor. 4:14-18 14Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you. 15For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God. 16For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. 17For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; 18While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
   Therefore - Because of His grace, we faint not (The outward man - the body; The inward man - The spirit & soul). If you read John Wesley came to the same conclusion. I have studied & read that K. Hagen, K. Copeland, & C. Dollar all came up with what I am saying here about the human being is a 3 part man Spirit that is in the heart and the soul making up the mind, character, will & receiver of our emotions. While our body has what it takes to express it’s self and perceive expression of others, the senses which evoking our emotions in getting our soul to react in danger, in ambulatory of our movement, along with happiness, grieve, & help us perceive to think in what are surrounding are. 1stCor. 9:27 But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway. The real you (Spirit & Soul) has to be kept the body under control. 1st Pet. 3:4 But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. The hidden man of the heart that is not corruptible.
      Believe with your spirit man in my inner most self agrees with the word. Rm.7:22-24 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.  O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? Your body believes what it senses. Your body believes the senses and your spirit believes the word. The body has to use the body senses to hold things, to walk, to function here on earth, your spirit man has to get a hold of things by spirit. Do not reason with what the body is sensing completely, take all information under captivity & by what spirit receives think and decide, believe with the heart.
    I understand this is a lot to comprehend it may take you a few times in reading this and talking it over with God. Back to what we were talking about.
   Your soul is the joint, the connection to the body and the soul is connection to the spirit. If you can get your to soul and spirit aligned, then the body has to follow, in doing this, you can then apprehend whatever the spirit has access to… The hardest part of this whole concept is when you speak the word and go on about your business and you are still experiencing the pain or the problem is still glaring at you. What you have to do is choose to focus on the Lord and His word, not your circumstance or problem. This is a discipline, it is not be easy for most of us. So we focus on God and go on about our business & operating in what the word says. I know when I have a headache if I focus on something else then it dulls and eventually goes away. If I focus on it I sometimes have to take an aspirin and lay down. So what I am saying is focus on the word and believe it then go about your business the pain will disappear, the bill will be taken care of, money will come, opportunity will open,,, whatever you were in need of will manifest. This is life changing set of statements Please ponder this chew on it. If you can get this concept and execute every time something happens that you need changing you can do it. You can change circumstance, any lack, any disease, or any problem that arises can & will have a solution. Hmmm what are the possibilities of God? Isa. 26:3-4 You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You. 4 Trust in the Lord forever, For in YAH, the Lord, is everlasting strength.
     Your mind is the key to this thinking, your mind is operated by your soul being influenced by the body which operates by your senses. The battle is keeping the body from directing you by your senses. The way the word tells you that you must come under the authority of your spirit which is connected to God’s spirit. Your body believes what it hears and senses. That is why you must choose the ways of God. This why when you receive a healing and later it goes away because your mind said to you I think I was healed. This opened the door for the enemy to come back and say you are not healed. Did you get this principle? You have to keep telling your mind and body the word, the ways of God and His promises to triumph over the body senses.
    John 3:5-6  5 Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Understand like I said before there is no direct connection between flesh & spirit. Your physical body cannot contact your spirit, only soul and spirit can communicate. The spirit of God needs to influence our soul so we can keep our body and soul in alignment with the spirit. This means we are in alignment with God, tuned into His frequency. Ok you get it? Is it starting to come together?
     Problem with a Christian Spiritual reality cannot be felt by the body. If it could we would be on board a lot easier yet we would fall out just as easy. We cannot feel the power that raised Jesus from the dead. Yet we have the power only we cannot feel it or touch it, we have trust it, we have to believe it, it is called faith… now do you understand? Eph.1:15-21  15 Therefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, 16 do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers: 17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, 18 the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power 20 which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. There is a lot here to grasp God gave us all the power and everything we need until Jesus returns. He gave this us so we could overcome any mountain and live in the blessing and not as others in the curse. We have this and revelation by staying attune in His presence in our relationship with Him.

More to come soon about alignment and how recieve, to apprend it, to activate it into your life...

The other day God has been saying we need to hear Him and that we need to take another look at what He said in "you reap what you sow" There is a spirit
about the world that all we can think about is planting money. The word is we need to look at it from another perspective, you reap what you sow, so be careful of what you think, & speak for this is what you are harvesting, maybe this is the answer to your break through. Stop grumbling and pay attention to what comes from your tongue there is like and death in it...
Here is the latest message I need to edit it, thought I would go ahead and psot it, it seems timely;
Prayer Procedure 
Look up effective prayer on to finish this article.

One of my favorite scriptures is; Jer. 33:2-3 “This is what the LORD says, he who made the earth, the LORD who formed it and established it—the LORD is his name: ‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’ Believe me He is revealing much lately. He has giving me revelation about prayer and how we as Christians go about it. Prayer is our right and one of the best tools. Yet we need to know who we are and we have power and authority. We also have our part to do besides wait on God.
   Prayer is not just for emergencies, it is the way for your life. Spend time with God and your prayers will be powerful. Think of prayer as like a bank. If you have money in the bank it takes the banks procedure to deposit and to withdraw from your account. By spending time with God and doing what He tells you and you completing deeds that life gives you to react is how you make deposits. Understand also God has been putting interest into your account from an endless supply. Write your check with prayers, prayer is the way to with draw. So seek what God has for through the way of the Kingdom. The word says seek the kingdom first. Look up the meaning of the word ‘seek’ and meditate on it. Prayer and speaking the word into your life activates the angels in working on your behalf. Know Jesus paid for everything so we are adopted into the Royal Family, we get to inherit all that He worked for, we get it now, as soon as we learn how to pray and receive and take what is given. The word is clear we have to do our part. Learn to do our best and let God do the rest. Yet many believers will pray to God for Him to speak to their mountain. God will not do what He has already commanded you to do. You pray to God to receive what Jesus has made available to you Mark 11:24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
    Let me give you a little insight, it has been revealed to me that it is our responsibility to speak to the mountain in our lives. Addressing our problems and circumstances, speak in authority, using the power of God. I call this living in the protocol of the Royal Family of Jesus. Learning who we are and how to do that is the trick. Some get it right away others have to work at it and work at it over and over, the later being me. What is sad is some use their mountain as an excuse… like Dr. Phil says howz that work’n for ya?
For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he says shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he says [Mark 11:23, Matthew 21:21, Matthew 17:20, Luke 17:6].

Understand there is a procedure and different approaches to problems and circumstances:
James 4:2-3 You want what you don't have, so you commit murder. You're determined to have things, but you can't get what you want. You quarrel and fight. You don't have the things you want, because you don't pray for them. When you pray for things, you don't get them because you want them for the wrong reason-for your own pleasure. Dan. 11:32 With flattery He will corrupt those who abandon the promise. But the people who know their God will be strong and take action. Heb. 10:32-33 Remember the past, when you first learned the truth. You endured a lot of hardship and pain. At times you were publicly insulted and mistreated. At times you associated with people who were treated this way. Mark 11:23-24
   Understand your fight in this world is in principalities of not of this world. Seek the Kingdom first. Luke 18:1 men need to pray about everything. This way you qualify for answers. Learn to ask for the right question and for the right answer with wisdom from God the Father. Don’t lose time in seeking the help from others, seek the Kingdom and start the power of prayer.
When sickness or a storm (problem) strikes, sober up, and get it together so you can refocus on what is needed. Put your attention on God’s promises and word. Use your weapons and tools of God.
God is bigger than he who is in the world. Encourage one another and self if needed. Do not blame God or anyone, take action.
Make up your mind that the world’s word is not going to be the last word. It will be the word of God applied with prayer & faith.
Stop all pressure to react wrongly.
You don’t have to beg God for healing or right action, God wants to heal or you to have what is needed to correct your situation, to the extent that you are blessed and prospered more than you were.
Know and apply God’s word. Apply healing scriptures or the scripture related to your situation.
Picture in your mind that it is done, think as though it is already done. Then thank God for have done it. Be thankful for all that God does in your life. By doing these things it brings you into alignment with God and His word and aligns you with success. Victory is yours.
Don’t spend time in worry or believing the word from the world. Be careful of self speech or talking to others, stop rabbit trails and stick to the main path in where you are going.
Decide to fight with all your might, be passionate in what you are doing. Know that God and the word is one, that this is power for creating dunamis power to bring your answer to pass.

Happy Trails

Keep an eye out for another article it will be a buster... it is about an impartation of an anointing.
Here is a taste a poem He gave me for it.

A Transfiguration
A bidding of a Will, to which we bend…
The heart of Man is not compounded of lies,
yet draws some wisdom from the only Wise one, Jesus, in the stillness it calls Him.
Man is not wholly lost, though now estranged, man awaits the groom…
While we wait what creative act, what strange comings & going shall we do?
A transfiguration of imagination of mind to mind comes a shining…
A refracted light glows in a colorful hue,
aw what yonder light do you see,
is it a transfiguration of you and me?

Prayer to Jesus  
The Lord has been giving me for a month now that He is opening heaven’s door and pouring out Shema Shema; ears to hear. We are always singing out our praises to God, He says read Ps. 33.3 …which is sing a new song to Him. Well know this, He is saying get ready He is giving us ears to hear so we can hear His singing a new song to us. So listen, spend time in your secret garden with Him. He wants to sing to you a new sound and a new way of manifesting prayer and glory for what is needed to bring the glory down to help with great commission.
Pray & have Knowing Faith; Ask God what to do, Take authority; Repair Soul Wounds; Apply the prayer to the Glory Light; Be Thankful and praise God; Break your Word Curses, and replace them with good…
Here is a prayer that my Holy spirit gave me speaking in through different names of Jesus, what do you think?

Oh Redeemer; Lord of my salvation, I offer my whole being as a living sacrifice upon the Cross to serve You only... because I believe Lord...I believe Your only son Jesus Christ was born here on earth; that He walked here among us showing us, many signs, wonders, and miracles; that we persecuted Him and we crucified Him and He died on the cross saving us and washing us from sin with His blood; that He was buried in a tomb and the rock was rolled away by angels; that He ascended into the Heavens to sit with You, Oh Lord, at Your right hand; that we are nothing without Him. 

Thank You Sweet Jesus, thank You Father; thank you Holy Spirit.  I speak this in the names of Jesus. Amen...

Happy Trails and new breaking dawns early light…

Git’n it right
Feelings, thinking, imagining, and ruling your body.
  James says what you speak and think is what you are… life is not a gamble, God is not up in Heaven sittin on His throne angry at everyone, He is always there in your life ready to do good when you call upon Him. God is a loving and kind God.
  Acts 10:38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. Acts 10:37-39 (in Context) Acts 10 Read the whole chapter. Ps. 59:16, NAS "But as for me, I shall sing of Your strength; Yes, I shall joyfully sing of Your loving kindness in the morning, For You have been my stronghold and a refuge in the day of my distress". I do not know anyone who does not go through puzzling conditions, situations, and/or circumstances in life that can cause distress, worry & anxiety. The key to overcoming this kind of circumstance is exactly what David did in the above verse in Psalms.
   In my book ‘12 Day Trail Ride’ the Holy Spirit expressed this a lot to watch what we speak especially in the storm. He also said spend time with God as much as possible… in the healing rooms we operate best under the influence of the Holy Spirit. So understand it is OK to be drunk in the Spirit, drink the new wine, soak in the presence. This brings a new perception in being drunk, this is a better kind of intoxicated. So, when the storm gets to rough, just go get drunk with God. It is a better way to handle problems, law, and sin. So step up to God’s heart ask Him, Papa can I come in? Come on in… Hmmm I don’t know how. Well just focus on Me. Hmmm I don’t feel like I am there… you are, ask Me a question and be still in Me.
Paul says in the bible this about our sin and law: Rm. 8:2-5 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
    So what are you doing speaking about your feelings and that speak to your body through the (flesh) carnal man or telling it how to behave and line up with God’s word through the Spirit man. And now what the law code asked for but we couldn't deliver is accomplished as we, instead of redoubling our own efforts, simply embrace what the Spirit is doing in us.
  The cowboys of the old west lived by a code, even if they were outlaws. That my friends is what we are to do, even though we are flesh (outlaws) we have to live by the code. Which is listen to what the Marshal says or we git hung (that is hung up in life and losing our life).
   We human beings think we can do it on our own. Yet the bible keeps saying community, we are to love one another, help one another. Be dependent not independent. We end up obsessed or possessed with in what we worship. Worship starts in what we pay attention to. By our own measuring, our own moral muscle we seem to never get around to exercising what the word says in real life enough to git’er done. I am here to tell ya, those who trust God's word & action in them find that God's Spirit is in’em, livin, and breathing God! They are the one’s who have good health and shalom.
  Obsession with self and demonic activity, this kind of attention is a dead end; attention to God leads us out into the open, into a spacious, free life. If’n ya focus on demons and sickness then ya have to do a lot of fight’n. Don’t ya remember Jesus tell’n us His yoke is light? He even said what ya worry’n about? Ever thang ya eat just passin through, it’s the thing ya are putt’n in yer mind… it’s a passin through. What counts is what is going in the heart, that is what sticks around.
   Even a minor’s jackass knows when he is walk’n across a face of mount baldy that is solid rock where the trail is cut out foot holds, he focuses on his next step not on the mountain and the rock. If’n he did he would truly fall. In other words focus on what the spirit is tell’n ya, not the flesh is a say’n look out, look at that rock you can’t do it, this is to scary. That my friend is pain talk’n, satan tell’n ya things of the world… He has no power unless you give it to him and he knowz it.
  I think I read were Kenneth Hagin said you have to stop listening to the flesh talk, and start listen to the spirit. If you step back and see the big picture in what the word is saying about us. Then you can see that we are spirit beings. This worldly body is temporary. You see the spirit lives in our heart (my opinion), that is why I listen to my heart and not my feelings. When I finally got this, that is when my knower knew and I started controlling my body. Not what someone else said or how I felt. I started tellin my body what it was suppose to be doing not what it was feeling. Once I got this in my mind I have been able to burn off excess fat, over 30 pounds, just by declaration in prayer. You can do this with anything in life you want to git rid of…
  Now if you are more body conscious than when someone asks how you feeling? Then you can respond by not saying… not so good I am fighting a cold and sore throat. Well that would just seal the deal and you would git it, so keep a fight’n or line up with the word and what your spirit is tell’b ya. Declare divine order, divine health, divine love through-out your body.
   So some people are body conscious, feeling conscious that is what rules them. They are hard pressed to find my God of Shalom. Their body’s are king and their feeling are their God. Plain and simple the body dominates, & it rules.
  If someone asks me how I am doing I say I am living the dream and I am well. That is what my spirit is tellin me and I am tellin the person and my body. It is kinda like let’n your soul wounds from the past rule you.
   A saint can go to a sozo session or sessions or some school or session of healing the past and not following through. You say follow through? Yes, it is called renewing the mind, training the old mindset what you have done. You recognize the past and removed the teeth, it can no longer eat at you and tare your mind and peace to shreads. Know you know the truth and you spirit is in control. You speak the word and know the word, it belongs to you, it is Ramah, you know it in your knower. I received a miracle in my knees my meniscus was replaced by God and I walk pain free. I know the word that brought it about and know the miracle. The word of it is Ramah to me now, it is in my knower.
   It is kinda like pedal’n a bike, one leg is pedal’n with what in what was you were sozoed about yer soul wounds, now it is up to my other leg to pedal with training and renewing, living life with what ya know and not expect’n my other leg to pedal the bike with my soul wounds healed. It takes both legs to pedal the bike over the mountain.
   Putting what you have been taught and the word that Lord has given you speaking it to your life. See it in your life, speak into the glory in your life, and it becomes reality. Hmmm imagine that !!!
   Here is a declaration for you: I am a spirit being who lives in a body. So not being so conscious about my body-instead of allowing my body to rule me, I let my spirit man and my heart rule me. Now I live by my body lining up with my spirit, for it is partnered with God. God lives in me therefore I am a God being, living in Love & Shalom. I speak this in the name of Jesus, Amen. Know you are the Amen to God. Make your own declaration and speak it often. Happy Trails or should I say Happy trials… smile
