Yes, it's been a very long time since I have written. Too long! I have been under siege by the enemy, enduring a time of much pain and illness. But I am emerging restored, healed, and delivered! All glory to God!
He met with me this morning and spoke these words to me, which I know are to be shared with all of you. Wherever you see the word "flock," please insert your own person or ministry or assignment.
"....from complexity to simplicity. Time to breathe deeply. Time to reconnect with your Source."
"You see only a small remnant, a tiny flock I have given you in two places. You see lack, but I see gain. You see poor, but I see rich. You see the value of numbers, but I see the value of hearts.
"This is the time for you to be still and do the work I have given you. Greeley Place and the Door of Hope ARE your little flocks; remember the word I gave you: Be shepherds of God's flock that is under your care, serving as over-seers - not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not greedy for money, but eager to serve; not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock. And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away." (1 Peter 5:2)
Then He directed me to the recent post of Holisa Alewine: "Father is re-building His house. The tragedy would be to stop in the middle of the re-model because we became tired of the dirt and the confusion."
He spoke again:
"Patience, child. From complexity to simplicity. I work while you wait. Your wait is NOT inactive; wait upon Me as a waiter waits upon his table. Keep your focus on Me and attend to the small needs at My table. Then....because you have kept the WORD OF MY PATIENCE, I will also keep you from the tribulation that will come upon the whole world." (Rev. 3:10)
How then do we prepare for the coming wars and collapses?
