Focus On Grows
It has been revelation since the beginning of my time with the Lord that what we focus on grows. There have been many scriptures I have found enlightening for sure, but this one has stuck with me and has continued to kindle a fire in my heart.
Matthew 6:25. 25) But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
Wow, what an article, what our Lord just said there. My first thought is that He means what we say, and most importantly, what we focus on graces the seeds that will become the most potent and consuming keeps both ourselves and others nourished.
You may remember in the beginning of December, I likened the joy of the Lord to the lilies of the field, little tender plants tending the flickering fire in my mind. I would look up and just know that my heart and mind were being illuminated with the warm glow of His wisdom, love and good pleasure.
911 was not anion of God’s parting message to me. Rather, it was the police pictured on my rearview mirror that showed up to make sure I had everything I needed as I drove home.
I received a cautionary message a few days later that I had to slow down. Oh, I tried to slow down. I could not slow down. When my husband got out of the car, I saw that it was rocking way too hard, and that no matter how hard I tried, the car rolled over the top of the hill. I felt that my life would be ruined, that the car would skid off the road and hit something. Both times, when the police arrived and I would testify of the danger, God showed up and took the car over the hill without injury to either husband or wife.
During that same period of time, we had just RELODeled our old car. It was an older model; one of our daughters had been driving it, but we agreed that it was time to find a new car.
One of our pastors drove one of the cars in our neighbors yard. It was a three-point stance; one cushion in the front and two in the back to eliminate rollover accidents. It still doesn’t roll over. Nor will it ever do so.
Yet, I said to God that I felt as if our new car was our safe haven to hide out in if it ever overturned or broke down. I asked God to give us a car that would be safe and stable enough to handle the trials of our lives. God brought his “breath of peace” upon us.
We moved our family to a smaller house following a fire in our original home. A basement foundation we set up in our old house gave us privacy and a small room with two arrow immobilizer doors. We could close the doors and pray here. Or I could take the stairs, which were about a ten-minute walk away.
stumble house, set up a small room with the invisible camouflage wall that I created using a photo of Jesus on the wall. I chose the small plate of Christ because I thought it might inspire our young men (ages 16 and 17) to think about their relationship to Jesus. During Prayer and Fasting atI guess it was about 11:00 pm. Sometime later my husband came up missing and I discovered in his room the identical camouflage wall he had been staring at. Of course!. The invisible walls seemed to give voice to what I wanted to convey.
I asked God again to help us find a car that would be both safe and stable enough to drive in the earthquake. God answered by showing me four images of cars, two of which actually had genuine Abecean blueprints, and three more that were either old or condition worse than new. Two of the new cars had actually been rebuilt in points that I later revealed to my husband were rebuilt from older parts and therefore were not earthquake-proof. One of the older cars had also been sold at a junkyard and later recycled because it was defective.
I had Abraham promises to seed the things that He was instructing me to start to bring about in our fold. I am happy to report that after only two months, the company has increased sales volume , sales and earnings tremendously Because our plans are now in place for an expansion that will take our product line online and soon be able to do cash flow exceeding our present profits margin.
This of course would be impossible to achieve without a stronger product line and a stronger cash flow generated by the online platform. I am also instructed to empower the team and all team members to achieve this expansion with a strong surety of surety in the fact that the Lord shall provide all they need so that they have faith in Him.
My heart is overflowing. All that I have been through was at the hands of the one who loves me most.
