What is stress? How do we have a Weight Relief Wednesday
and get over the HUMP DAY to become lighter, healthier and free?

I began the
“Thankful Revolution” because of an intense reaction to my stressful
situation and how I was being sapped of energy, vitality, life, and
everything within me felt as if it was short-circuiting. I had become
depleted of my livelihood and my drive to strive was gone or leaving
soon!

Now, what brought me out of this
internal demise was a
boost of energy that came from JOY and Laughter and basically from God
Himself where it says the JOY of the Lord is my strength and that early
morning/late night when my son and I prayed and somehow my feeble inner
self said Lord I thank you for this cup of soup. Causing a chain
reaction of hysterical laughter from my son and then that energy was
transferred to me and ignited my inner spirit into catching the wave of
Joy and Laughter and pure silliness. That laughter boosted my moral
and redirected my mental focus from a plight into a Light situation. No
more was there a spirit of heaviness in me and my mind wasn’t focusing
on the present situations which were causing overwhelming anxiety and
gloom. I had allowed the frustrations that I had internalized inside of
me causing my entire body to become impacted into a state of migraines,
insomnia, loss of appetite, fatigued, etc. Once that Boost of JOY
(Just Outrageous YOKE BUSTING Laughter)
; I then was
able to deal better
mentally and physically.

I had a break in current…rather the
negative energy that had been running internally inside of me was broken
long enough cause a stoppage of that flow and then when I had a
reconnection of the energy current inside of me it was not full of
contradictions, negativity or doom and gloom; what was now ignited
within me was a flow of positive strength building and renewed mental
thinking energy and focus.

————————–..————————–..———————–
The scripture says
to from the Message Bible translation the following:

Matthew
11:28-29 (The Message)

28-30″Are you tired? Worn out? Burned
out
on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life.
I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with
me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay
anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll
learn to live freely and lightly.”

Asking
us are we tired?

 AND
YES I WAS…are you or have you been struggling with keeping energy in
the midst of your trials? Do you feel worn out by the cares of life
burdening you down? Do you find that your consistent “church going”
isn’t having any impact in your life and basically you have not have
life or that life more abundant. Here you have been a Christian all
your life going to church and being a good person and doing all you can
to be a good person; going to all the church meetings, being on the
praise teams, helping everyone else with their problems, going to visit
the sick and shut in, driving the kids to all of their after school
activities, being the number one sales person on your job, making sure
there is a family meal when your husband comes home…the list goes on
and on and on…here these are “religious” or habitual actions you are
doing daily which really bring you stress and sometimes when not
properly dealt with by you will cause you to have a short circuit or
sapping occurrence and maybe even harmful side effects to your body and
mind.

We have to really take God’s word as
the medicine and
guidance for our life so we can truly have the best life available for
us to live. the Lord says in the scripture That in the times when we
are bogged down with the cares of life and basically STRESSED out; we
have to get ourselves back into that intimate place of peace and joy and
love that only the Lord can give us and is actually WAITING for us to
come back to. The Lord desires to restore our energy and peace and
mental renewal so that we can find a balance and strength to press
forward REGARDLESS of it circumstances change.

The Lord in that
moment showed me how to get back to a place where my thoughts were no
longer seeped in a vile putrid doom and gloom concept of focusing and
reaction to my current situation: whether jobless, full of debt, no
transportation, not in the best health I wanted to be, feeling of
failure, overwhelmed with inability to really drastically get out of the
inevitable and impending financial hardships, possibility of
homelessness…I mean the list goes on and on..and my mind had gone
there to the horrible reality of my present and current situation rather
than really BELIEVING God’s promised word for me and my home/family.
Which is He said don’t get weary in well doing for in due season I would
reap if I faint not. I was fading fast, I had fainted and got weary
and was chained by the stress of life instead of freed by the word of
life which says He who the Son sets free is free indeed!

For a
moment I was thrown for a loop and that mind of mine got me in a way of
wrongness and thinking ill which created an internal illness and place
of pain unnecessary pain. God doesn’t want us to take on burdens that
we
are not capable of handling or carrying. He already says that He is
the one who can carry the loads and we just need to rest in Him and rely
on Him to take us through the journey with His YOKE for us to ease the
load and create a smooth transition out of the current station we find
ourselves into a new path and road where it is smooth and easy and full
of HIS JOY.

Over the past weekend on Saturday God
was reminding
me that HIS grace is sufficient for me and that He is the one to bless
me with all things that He is the one who tends to my every need so why
should i be discouraged and worry like the song says if His eyes are on
the sparrow then I know and must remind myself that I know He does watch
over me.

When I continue to abide in Him and
His word it helps
my mind not to become idle in a wasteland of despair but to become
ACTIVATED into the energy of HIS promise. God’s word is full of promise
and expectations and that’s where I choose to reside. That’s where I
choose to focus my thoughts and my energies. There’s where I decided to
relinquish all of the acidic vile downing position of focus and take up
HIS way of thinking and doing.

Immediately my spirit was
renewed. My posture restored, My energy was revived and my mind clear
to receive of Him.

Some how I had a purpose reminded to
me which was
just write haha.

So, here you got it …the “Thankful
Revolution”
and everyday God gives me something. So, what I give I share. I pray
it helps someone; if only to be a benefit in myself it has changed the
complexion of my life and for this I truly am thankful!

I
didn’t have and still don’t have the resources right now to fund a
campaign needed to tend to migraines and possible diseases resulting
from all the stress I was building into my life and allowing to crumble
my vitality and strength. So, I had to get with the Deliverers
plan…

the Blood Cross and Sword Shield policy

…where the Blood of
Jesus has covered me and…

continued from previous…That
Blood Cross and Sword Shield
plan allows the Savior
to be my insurer
and I have a policy tied into Him. I am now one who can claim the
benefits of peace, rest good health…now that my soul (mind, will and
emotions) are prospering. Truly God’s word gives us perfect balance to
live if we truly get with Him as He
 says to do. If we truly come away with Him
and let the sword of His word cut out all of the dross of life the waste
and weights that so easily beset us to sin…basically it’s not His
command for us to worry or be

“stressed out”

that leads us to a life of
defeat and slow or in some cases fast death

 (whether
it’s a death to our
bodies, or relationships or outcomes).

 We really need to be
mindful…of what He says about protecting our thought life. We have to
renew our minds so that we can see clearly Him and His ways of working
all things out for our good. Really we must realize that any ANY
suggestion or thought that we are always going to have failure or not
make it or things wont change and it will get worse and we will just
never get out of debt or have a restored relationship or be healthy is
NOT what HE says to us and obviously suggestions from the adversary
whose only function is to suggestion and condemn and plant thoughts and
situations into our lives which would steal our life and effectiveness,
kill any chance of hope and expectation and destroy all our purpose and
drive to do what God says and live the way God says to live so that we
could really live ON PURPOSE and IN OUR PURPOSE.

So, here’s the
thing…a lot of us want to reduce the weights of our world and want to
alleviate the current pressures that our environment is dictating will
be our fate…and we can. We must just get back to the TRUTH of God’s
word for us and banish the foul snare and trap that would have us tied
in knots and basically in a way where our FUSE blows

 (FUSE=focus

unravels sending explosive-detriments)

No MORE will we have a
mind that is not focus on God’s word on the matter.

No more will
we be unraveled and frazzled and bedazzled into a breakdown and
unbearable weight where we cease to function.

No more will we
have signals sent to our internal body and spirit which constricts and
short circuits our energy flow and causes stagnation, depletion and
eventual early demise in all aspects spiritually, naturally, physically,
mentally, etc.

No more will we explode just blow up
in fits of
anger or sadness or emotional instability or react and perceive our
current situations in a manner where there is NO WAY of ESCAPE…that
isn’t even God’s word on the matter. God always assures us that He
doesn’t give us too much that we can bare and that He always assures a
choice that we can make which will show forth that one WAY of escape
from any and every situation or journey in life we are finding ourselves
faced with and dealing with….God is the Way and His Word gives the
escape route.

I hope that this brings you a recharge
and refocus
and wake up call to let’s work together to reduce the weights of worry
and sin and stress off of our lives and get in shape through abiding in
HIM and His word.

We have to trust the Lord regardless.
We
have to do what His word says and that is in everything we shall give
Him thanks. Not saying everything is a grand joyful situation and we
need to be “actors” just reacting from a script really playing like
nothing is wrong…NOPE things are wrong and we ARE going through and we
HAVE loss things….and when we are truthful enough and basically
transparent with the Lord on our feelings about the matter of how we
feeling about the situation we find ourselves in…sometimes that means
crying out whether we THE MAN or THE Super
Woman
(hahahaha) we got to go
before HIM real and raw and let Him know I am having a rough time with
this place I am in and I need your help. HELP ME!!!! Once we realize
that and really get a grip; miraculously God will say My Yoke is easy
and burdens are light.

WOW
what a “wonderful observational word”

that the Lord cares for us and has
never left us nor forsaken us. What a
wonderful observational word that He wants to take all of our cares
upon Him because He is capable of dealing with them and helping us get
through to be “better and more effective”. It is definitely NOT God’s
will for us to be drained and dying all stressed out! So, don’t get that
twisted thinking God gave you all the mess you going through; He may
allow it but He doesn’t always give you what you are walking in or going
through so stop being mad at Him. Take a look in the mirror or really
analyze who is speaking into your life or making suggestions in your
ear.

The adversary doesn’t want you to
prosper and be in good
health. The adversary definitely doesn’t want you to renew your mind
and abide in God’s word so you can be set free. And definitely the
adversary doesn’t want you to wake up to who you really are and what we
really have available for our benefit based on the

Blood Bought Covenant
of our own health and life insurance policy the Cross and The Shield
… The Blood and the Sword…Jesus and God’s Word.

What
if it took just one moment in time…say this moment where you are
reading this message from my heart to yours to allow you to say “Lord
thank you for this cup of soup” and find a silly hilarious laugh again
which sparks your personal passion renewal to live life and that life
MORE abundant. I believe it is so because God is not a respecter of
persons and what He does for one He does for all. It doesn’t matter
what you have or don’t have…all you need is HIM! All you need is to
recognize that HE LOVES YOU and CARES for you dearly and wants the VERY
BEST for you and That He is not blind to your situation. He realizes
where you are at and what is impending on your doorstep or in your
mailbox or in your bank account. God knows and feels you. He is not a
God who will not provide for you. We ALL of us have to fight for the
right to laugh again and have our best life ever. The Lord promise that
our latter days would be better than our former days. He says that HE
restores all that the worms of life

 
(WORMS=worries,obstacles,r..elationships,mental
anguishes,situations-say
it aint so!)

These worms have really done a great
damage in our core
being and our focus and our passion and purpose and energy and hope.
It’s is time to stomp on the worms and know that the God of deliverance
and restoration has personally taken care of all your worms of life and
brought a total restoration QUICKLY for you. Now go ahead shake yourself
off and take all the leaches off let them be burned off by the washing
and fire of Gods’ word that you embrace now as your mantra and your
mental thoughts. Think on the pure thoughts the Holy thoughts the good
report thoughts the life altering and shifting thoughts that assure you
of your outcome with purpose, joy and effectiveness. You are the head
not the tail, you are more than a conqueror in Christ Jesus, with God
nothing is impossible you can do all things through Christ who
strengthens you, God’s spirit sets the captives free and you are one who

has the GREATER one living all up inside of you!There is no lack in the
Father.Do
what you know to do to be obedient Pray FAST Sow seed in
obedience and I assure you that with the little you have to give all of
it back to HIM HE does exceeding abundant above all that you can ask or
think. Trust God and watch Him do what HE does with glorious outcomes
so that His light shines bringing all into a fullness of Joy and
wonderful splendor. Let the ridiculous favor of the Lord be your best
friend.Allow His Grace and Mercy to run and capture you.Know that in Him
you have blessings not curses because that is HIS covenant relationship
and the policy terms of condition.He
loves us and gives all that we
need to take care of us. This is just a few things I wanted to share as
we are on our HUMP DAY!Be Blessed!

HUMP DAY

meaning Having Unveiling
MIND-altering PROMISE
PROCLAIMED

…another Myrrhism from me…

instead of Wed being laborious
and thought to be sometimes a struggle of a day because we know only a
few days after WED then the weekend and still though not soon enough
hahahaha…well let’s replace that negative thought with the new message
that HUMP day
means He reveals nuggets of gold and keys
to JOY and living and rest which sustain and propel us continually to
forward movement and progress

…we
now are going to HUMP or Having
Unveiling MIND-Altering PROMISE PROCLAIMED on Wednesdays.

 (smiling)

Well I feel better; what about you?

Love you all dearly and want
the best for you so let’s now enjoy again and laugh again and really
just REST again regardless of what issues are hovering around us…it’s
not our issues to try to carry and work out…we aren’t built to handle
it…that’s God’s duty and He says it’s His duty so let Him take care of
it…like He says to cast all our cares upon Him because He cares for
us which is in I Peter 5:7~For once it’s okay to let someone else take
the load and pass the buck onto Him .

Now, instead of having our
lives bogged down with a messy mental harassment of doom and gloom and
no way out thinking let’s get to a place of joy and thanksgiving and
rest again in HIM. Let’s enjoy His presence and praise Him with song
and dance and His word.

I love you always and know that in
this
new beginnings of uniting in a mobilized effective unified and
passionate force/army who is strategically placed and fired up with
purpose WE WILL CONQUER ALL and REALIZE all of our hearts desire into
full fruition.

Thank you for taking the time to
fellowship with
me this morning. Let us continue to encourage one another through
actively praying with each other, writing words of exhortation and
edification on each others walls or send a joyful enlightening email
and really being that ONE person to create an avenue of change. Why not

be the ONE to usher in a new reality of focus and life for another…it
starts first with us individually and then seeps into our homes,
neighborhoods, cities, states, nation and entire planet…and it only
takes ONE person to be an agent of change and create a ripple of new
life MORE abundant as we journey together in our “Thankful Revolution”.

Please take the time to show your
support and share you
personal testimony. Please take the time to go to my new site on
mysapce and become a friend/fan and leave a comment. Let’s do this
together because there is strength and power in people working together
in unity and it is sweet and pleasant even to the Father when He views
His people joining forces moving mountains building faith and trusting
His
word as the ultimate truth of our realities and gospel “good news” of
His Kingdom.

That’s what we are here now calling
forth His
Kingdom here be established here on earth in us earthen vessels as it is
in heaven until full restoration and manifestation of His glory known
and seen by all mankind.

Amen indeed.

Love you
always~Shalom

But as for me, I will
look to the
Lord, I will wait for the God of my
salvation; my God will
hear
me. Micah 7:7

I Will Look to the Lord
Israel’s King
David once wrote:
The LORD is near to all who call upon
Him,
To all who call upon Him in truth.

He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him;

He also will hear their cry and save them.

Psalm 145:17,18 (NKJV)

In the “evil day,” the day of great difficulty
and
trouble, we
may feel that God and any hope for
renewal or joy is far,
far
away. But the Lord
our God is never far away from those
who
trust in
Him. As the Psalm above says, God is near to all

who call upon Him in truth.
Micah, the prophet of God
quoted in the graphic
featured on
this page, lived
many years after King David. By the time

Micah
came along, Israel had fallen far from the good path
the

people had once walked. God sent Micah and other prophets
to

raise a cry, to call His people back to repentance.
Micah

warned of severe judgments to come, and
spoke clearly of
the sins
that were all too common
in his day.
But he also warned Israel’s enemies not to
celebrate
the
nation’s troubles too much. One of
my all-time favorite
passages is in chapter 7 of
Micah’s book of prophecy.
Speaking on behalf of the
city of Jerusalem, Micah says:
Do not rejoice over me,
my enemy;
When I fall, I will arise;

When I sit in darkness,
The LORD will be a light to
me.
I will bear the indignation of the LORD,

Because I have sinned against Him,
Until He
pleads my case
And executes justice for me.

He will bring me forth to the light;
I will
see His righteousness.

Micah 7:8, 9 (NKJV)
In the Bible, wherever God
speaks of judgment and ruin,
He also
speaks of
mercy, forgiveness and restoration. The very
purpose
of God’s correcting hand is to save and restore
us.

He delights in doing good.
Some of the troubles we
face in our own lives may have
come
about by our
own bad choices, our own greed or selfish
desires or

cowardice. Yet the message we have in Scripture is clear:

God will forgive when we turn to Him for forgiveness and
help.

God will make us clean again. God will take great
joy in
bringing us safely home. He longs to hold each
of us
close
to His heart, and He is always
watching for the first sign
of our
return. Jesus
compares sinners to lost sheep, to
wandering
sons,
to precious coins, and He makes it clear that even
the

angels of heaven rejoice when one of us is “found” and
brought

home again.
Not every difficulty
that come into our lives is the
result of
some sin
in our life. Sorrows come upon all people, no
matter
how good they try to be. We all lose loved ones.

Anyone can lose a home, a job, physical ability, a good

reputation. Anyone can be injured in a collision or
suffer a
devastating illness.
But no one needs to
walk alone in difficult times. No
matter how
difficult the day becomes, or what you must go
through,

look to the Lord. Call upon Him and trust Him to see you

through.
As He promised to His people long
ago, so in Jesus
Christ His
Word stands good for
you as well:
Fear not, for I have redeemed you;

I have called you by your name;
You are
Mine.
When you pass through the waters,

I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they
shall not overflow you.
When you walk through the
fire, you shall not be
burned,
Nor shall the flame
scorch you.
For I am the LORD your God,

The Holy One of Israel, your Savior.

Isaiah 43:1-3 (NKJV)

No one who trusts in the Lord ever
walks alone, for God
is with
them. Look to the
Lord Jesus Christ for help and comfort
and

strength. He will not ignore you or turn His back on
you.

He will help you.
Finally, the Apostle Peter
gives us the perfect closing
thought
on this, and
yet another promise from the Lord:
Humble yourselves
therefore under the mighty hand of
God, so
that he
may exalt you in due time. Cast all your anxiety
on

him, because he cares for you.
Discipline
yourselves, keep alert. Like a roaring lion
your

adversary the devil prowls around, looking for someone to
devour.
Resist him, steadfast in your faith, for you know that
your

brothers and sisters in all the world are undergoing
the
same
kinds of suffering.
And
after you have suffered for a little while, the God
of all

grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ,
will

himself restore, support, strengthen, and establish
you.
To
him be the power forever and ever. Amen.
