Today is the day we celebrate each other and forget to celebrate the One who made us.

What are you celebrating? We are in a season when we hear "Hark The Herald Angels Sing Glory to the newborn King" over loud speakers everywhere. "Joy to the World", "We Three Kings," and "Away in The Manger" are all playing in public places. What are you singing? What is running through your head? It is time to get your worship in anywhere and everywhere you go, people are wide open to it. This is the easiest season to worship out loud. Walk around singing, let people hear you humming. Let them ask, 'why are you so happy?' It is open door season. Use your time wisely!

Whose Miracle Are You?

Whose Miracle Are You? What have you done lately? Please seek out someone this holiday that you get to be their miracle. Let God use you to change their destiny! Please go find that dear little old aunt or your grandma. Take time to here their story, love on them, touch them, I am sure they don't get touched much. It is important , please step outside of yourself be someone else's miracle.

Most often your destiny is tied to doing something for some one else. Come on Be an Angel. Do a miracle, it may not seem like much to you ,but it could be a miracle to them. Please I am sure God wants to use you to do His work for Him.. God is in the people using business. Just a thought as we come up on this Holiday season..

My niece has sent an air plan ticket to me for the Thanksgiving season . With it came cash to put an extra suitcase on the plane and money for Starbucks because she knows I am going to have a layover. This was so dear to see, it touch my heart . She didn't want me to be out anything for coming, she just wanted me with her. You have no idea how dear this was to me! Please think of the details when you ask someone to come be with you for the holidays; Make them feel so special. Remember what brought you joy when you were together remind them of your favorite story of them and you. When My niece were little I had what was called a love box. They would reach in and pull out time, they were the "special one". It was lunch, or slumber party, or a night at a hotel. time in recording studio. it was about our time together. I held all my girls and loved on all of them I didn't want them to have life go by and just be given gifts but No me.. I want you to consider your own Love box what do you put in to it . Because at the end of your life that is what you will get out of .. Just a little Holiday memories. Be an Angel to someone this Season.. Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas .. My Savior Is alway celebrated here! May you fell His Gentle love this season and all year long. Pastor Cindi.

My Desires to Love My Lord with Such Passion as Man Has never felt or seen.

My passion is to bring forth something not yet seen in our generation... UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. I pray that I would become so enthralled with my Lord's love for me that I reflect it. 'His Love', a real love not an 'acting love'... something real! My God Is real! I feel His presence. I can smell His essence. I can feel His presence change the atmosphere in the room. The language of the Bible is as a Father talking to His children.. Read it. Cherish His words of love and mercy, they are given to you. Hold on to His word while you can and you still have the freedom in this country to do so. Your children will see Christ in you. I love you Lord, let your life and compassion flow through us. May we reflect Your Love.

Your most humble servant,

Pastor Cindi

The preparations of the heart belong to man!

Wow! Now here is a statement we should all be looking at..."the preparation of the heart belongs to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord" (Proverbs 16:1). Lets look at that first part of the scripture: what are you preparing for in your heart? Maybe you have prepared for God's best to overflow you, His strength to overwhelm you when the tidal waves of life come flowing in. Maybe you have been preparing for His greatest revelation to come forth from you by filling up with His Holy Word. Maybe you have increased your time alone with Him so much that others can't be around you without the conviction of the Holy One coming upon them. Maybe you realize His love so much for you that everyone who meets you, feels His overflowing love and mercy (Micah 6:8). What preparations are you making in your heart?

Lets take the last part of this scripture (Proverbs-16:1 part b): "But the answer of the tongue is from the Lord". Matt. 10:19-20 says, "but when they deliver you up don't worry about how or what you should speak. For it will be given to you in that hour what you should speak; for it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you. And 2 Sam. 23:2 says, "the Spirit of the Lord spoke by me, and His word was on my tongue. 2 Peter 1:21 reminds us that "prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit".

2 Tim. 3:16-17 tells us that "all scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work".

I love you! Prepare for His glory!

Its time to care about people!

I went to get my nails done at the local parlor. As I sat there, a man about 80 years old got off of the city bus, came in, and sat down in the salon. Lindsey, the women who runs the shop, came over to the gentleman. She sat down on a stool in front of him so he didn't have to move. She took off his shoes and proceeded to speak to him with such respect and honor. As he went to pay her for cutting his toenails, he reached into his pocket and pulled out his wallet. When he handed her the money she said, "oh no, that is too much, that is a fifty dollar bill". She said, "now lets put that back, you need to make sure you do not mix up your money". Next she said, "let me call for your city transportation and while you are sitting here I will trim your fingernails so you won't have to pay to come again next week". She helped him out. I praised her for the gentleness and respect in which she treated the man. She simply responded by saying, "he can't see well and I don't want him to lose his money". I told her that the way she honored and cared for him was beautiful. I was so touched. Then she astounded me with this statement: "I have to treat him as though he were my own grandpa. That is the only way to live in blessings." Wow! Wow! She got it. Don't you think it is time to show we care about people? Reach out, start treating the elderly as though they were the most important person in your life; instead of as though they are just in the way. I love my parents! I adore them! They are a gift and they are wisdom. They are priceless! Please look at the gifts that are right in front of you... while you have them. Open your hearts to love, love, love. It wins every time!

Exodus 20:12 "Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you."

I send love to all of you.

My Heart Races at the thought of My Savior

I can't tell you all what it is like to have this incredible love inside of me for our Lord and Savior. I feel as though someone is tapping me on my shoulder some mornings, sometimes its a shove, a push, to wake me up and I hear loud and clear, "come be with me".

I race as though my breath has been taken away. I can't wait. I almost start to weep at the fact I can not get to Him quick enough. I know He is longing to be with me. I know He wants His time with me. He knows how deep I love and how I long for these mornings where no one can come between us. Its just me adoring Him!

Please this is real! Take the time to set your self apart from all the world's foolish business. What you give to Him is nothing compared to what He wants to give to you. I can feel His love pouring into my heart, it takes me to a place no one can.

Once I was told more then 20 years ago that "I loved too much". I wondered to myself, is that at all possible? The pastors wife who said this, finished with this statement, "that deep of love brings a deeper pain, a lot of hurt, is it necessary to put your heart out there like that, can't you just close it off?"

This is, the world of today, they have closed off there hearts and they are numb to His love. They have no passion that says "I must run to Him.."

See beyond the Natural

If you don't see beyond the natural, you will waste your energy on the wrong enemy!

Too many of us are fighting the wrong enemy and using the wrong weapons..."for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds" (2 Corinthians 10:4). We spend way to much time fighting battles in our minds that were not meant for us to fight.

We see that in praise and worship, we shut the mouth of the enemy. "Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings we are ordained strength to still (or shut) the mouth of the enemy and the avenger" (Psalm 8:2). "For the voice of him that reproacheth and blasphemeth; by reason of the enemy and the avenger" (Psalm 44:16).

The enemy speaks into our ears and, we let him into our thoughts, we open a door for him to enter...shut him up! Worship your Lord. "But God hath chosen the foolish things of this world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty" (1 Corinthians 1:27). I love it every time I see the word "WEAK" because that is us, we are weak...Yeah!! That means to say: 'those of us who put our strength in HIM, Christ Jesus, "He fights our battles" "He is our strength"'. Pray in "His Will". His will is the Word of God. Quote God's word. I do not desire to quote men of this world, but God's word. It is what heals and gives life to those in need. "But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory" (1Corinthians 2:7).

What a mighty God we serve! God is faithful, "by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord" (1 Corinthians 1:9).

I desire for you to walk in His love and His glory that you may be a light to ALL men. This is a time when we need to see clearly and draw a line in the sand and not waste time fighting the wrong enemy. Don't ever be thrown off by the things of this world.. see beyond the natural and look at who your real enemy is.

You are greatly loved, may you show His love to all men everywhere you go. "Beloved let us love one another: for love is of God; and everyone that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not, knoweth not God; for God is Love" (1 John 4:7-8).

Much love and strength in Him who made you.

Love, Pastor Cindi

God is Calling His children to Reflect the Image of His Son

He is a God of Love ! Can we all say, Yes! He is a God of Love! (Please read 1 John 4:14-27).

We are servants of the living God. That means we are expandable. We are at His disposal. We must choose to think of ourselves, not as priceless porcelain, but as paper cups that God may use for what He wants to accomplish. You can not out give the LORD. God doesn't take anything away that He does not replace many times over. And sometimes He delivers in miraculous ways. Look at Dan. 3:26-29, "Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, who sent His Angels and delivered His servants who trusted Him".

If you and I are willing to put God first, then those around us will see Him also. They will see how you trust Him as you go through difficulties and they will marvel at what He does in and through your life. Please look at the following scriptures: Colossians 3:15, Romans 5:8, Hebrews 7:25-9:28, I Thess 2:12-13, 1 Cor. 1-9. Fellowship with Him.

Ask our Lord and King to transform you into the image of HIs Son. 1 John 4:17-18 says, "Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgement: Because as he is, so are we in this world. (v.18) There is no fear in Love; but perfect Love casts out all fear, because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love". And in 1 John 4:12, we see, "No man has seen God at anytime. If we love one another God dwelleth in us, and His love is perfected in us". Verse 21 is a command of God: "He that loveth God loves his brother also".

I want to end with this thought...Ezekiel 12:25,"' For I am The Lord, I will speak, and the word that I shall speak will come to pass. It shall be no more prolonged, for in your days, O rebellious house, will I say the word, and will perform it', saith the Lord God."

This is a strong word! It says to me "Let's take our God seriously". He has been waiting for His children to get their lives together. Now we are seeing, signs of His coming everywhere. We are hearing, stars are aligning with Revelation 12. I just got a magazine with Daniel's 70 weeks as a main article; posting the time line of Dan. 9:24-27. For the first time, Nasa is posting warnings of things to come. Matthew 24:37 says, "to those who see the fig tree bloom, this generation shall not pass". Well wake up! This happened nearly 70 years ago! Israel was put back into place in Nov. of 1947. No matter who does the time line, it comes out the same... "He is coming" and it is in our time!! It doesn't matter who is closer, all that matters is He is coming, and it will be in our time. Luke 12:56 says, "Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth: but how is it that ye do not discern this time?" (Matt 10:26 look for your self). Live as though He is coming tomorrow. Show His love stop the fighting. If love shows, we are a child of the King! What does your justified anger show? Who's image are you portraying then? Please, there is no time for foolishness.

I love you all, in Him who made us all.

Kiss the children, hug the Grandmas, call the great Aunts.
Build your relationship with the family, so that you are first a testimony to the family, then the rest of the world will catch on.
Stop worrying about everyone else's stuff and get the speck out of your own eye.

We are called to love as Christ would and did.

God's Blessings on America and pray for our Nation under God!
Cover us Lord! Forgive our Sins!
He stretched out His arms and died to cover us with HIs blood!

Love, In Him

I am always about my Fathers business.

Pastor CIndi

What Does the Lord Require of You?

I believe you will see in Micah 6:8, "To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God."

I see people running around trying to seek knowledge in so many areas that they can not focus on the call to "run for the prize" (Philippians 3:10-11). The Apostle Paul said press towards the prize of the" HIGH CALLING" of GOD in CHRIST JESUS. Focus on His word. Focus on how He requires us to act, in humility, that He may fashion US to be likened to HIS GLORIOUS BODY. Look at Philippians 3:10-20...was this too much to hope for? NO! Or the Apostle Paul would not have mentioned it.

We are to Love as Christ Loved

God's Grace

We do not have to wait until we reach Heaven to know the sweetness of having Him wipe away our tears. We learn now, how compassionate He is throughout our lives. There are some today that are always crying on someone else's shoulders. They can never seem to appropriate God's grace for themselves. When they suffer, everyone else knows about it. The real overcomer can be in great trial and yet, in the presence of others, happy and carefree. This is victory.

Oh, that we would read and meditate upon the scriptures! There is so much more than what appears on the surface. I say, "fill us with unspeakable joy" that we may endure! What will it be like when we see Him face to face in His fullness in all reality?
Let us read the word and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal the truth to our hearts. Are we afraid to go to the minister and ask him what something means? Why not ask the Holy Spirit, as you would your preacher or teacher? Talk to Him personally, out loud if you can; and then let Him speak through the Word. He will always speak through the Word of God. We are His; rise up and walk in His grace. He will prove wisdom just seek after HIm. "Grace: all that it asks, it provides". Quote by Amy Christine Richardson, I love that.

Please think on how you show His joy,and how do you show Him your love, your devotion, your adoration.

A man in a restaurant saw me with my bible and said to others "look she has a bible" the other man with him turned to me, and said 'yes why are you carrying it?'. "Oh", I said, " I was so curious I just can't put it down. I love my Lord and I can't wait to see what He might show me." It is in my purse in my car everywhere with me.. I love Him so much I can not be with out His hand written love letter to me.

In His Favor and Grace I move.

Ephesians 5:1-3

Much Love Pastor Cindi

What a Warrior

We say we want the deeper truths, revelation, knowledge, and discernment; we want to be 'joint-heirs with Christ' (Romans 8:16-18); we want all the gifts. We are called Kings and Priests (Rev. 1:5-6);(Rev. 2:10 The Smyrna church will get a crown of life). However, I have come to find that "all Christians" are not the same... in experience, in devotedness, in consecration, nor in overcoming. I want you to have a clear picture of a true overcomer and a warrior. I would watch a family look on, as the mother died slowly, a very painful and agonizing death. She never complained or said "Why me God?" This cancer did not change her relationship with her God. Her sickness did not change who God was to her. She was a warrior and an overcomer. She paid the price. She endured til the end. Will you endure to the end?

There is a price to be paid, as there always is for a monarch. We must be separated unto that calling and trained to fill that place. There is much suffering that precedes that glory. We must share His rejection and humility now. We must cast our lot with Him while He is without a throne.

My heart is to bring some reality in your thinking. I pray you will seek Him and that no matter how your circumstances may look, He does not change who He is to you!

Much Love,

Pastor Cindi

Passing on the Keys

During this season, when I am not speaking, I have been spending a lot of time with my parents. I go where they live and during the night and early mornings I walk with the Lord, hearing His voice. I go to the river and sit and watch while people fish. I have my pen and paper in hand and listen to worship so I can keep my mind on Him. Through this time I am feeling God put more love into my heart; and I am very grateful for that. To war in this time and season we need more love . I learn so much from my parents, when I am with them. I watch their undying love for one another. Their sweet eyes that love each other so openly; the way they still hold hands and want the world to know this is my "sweetie", this is what "till death do us part" looks like (they have been happily married for 54 years). They encourage each other, they lift one another up. They pat each other on the back and say 'I love you' at least once an hour. I hear my mother adoring my father saying, 'you are so wonderful Popi'. They read the word to each other everyday! It is an outward sign of an inward feeling. Wow! What love I was brought up in. It is no wonder that I hear people tell me they can feel so much love from our family. Much like the river I watch flowing down across the rocks, our love can change hearts.

Look with me please at 1 Corinthians 4:15 "After all,though you should have ten thousand teachers in Christ, yet you do not have many fathers. For I became your Father in Christ Jesus through the glad tidings (the gospel)." Whether or not your mentor actually "begot" you when you were born again, you need to find someone with the heart of a father or mother who will help you grow up in Jesus.

This is how the "Keys to the Kingdom" get passed on. Matthew 16:19 (in the amplified version) says, "I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind ( declare to be improper and unlawful) on earth must be what is already bound in heaven; and whatever you loose (declare lawful) on earth must be what is already loosed in heaven".

Mentors keep the flow going. A good mentor passes on the keys of the kingdom of God. They help you unlock the beauty and truth of heaven and life here on earth. They will show you (like a parent helps their child) how to walk in His peace that passes all understanding, and in His presence carrying His joy and love, as well as how to eliminate the things from your life that are not from God.

I think we often miss the greatest gifts that are put into our lives to guide us through the rough times. They are always right in front of!
Today I am passing on an important key: love your parents, honor them, do not abandon them in their time of need. Cherish the time you have. Tell them what they have done for you. Kiss them. Tell them you love them. Let's build strong families.

From a loving heart,

Pastor Cindi

I Love you Lord!

I love you Lord. As I learn to come into obedience quicker and as I surrender my flesh  I feel such an incredible closeness with my Lord. I really feel my Father In Heaven looks down with delight 
thrilled that His daughter desires to please the heart of the Father. I am not perfect, but I am forgiven. I desire to show the love of My Lord . Let this grow in you more, ask every day for more love that you may show the heart of the Our Lord Jesus! He gave His life for us! Surely your could ask for more of that kind of love.  Its the day before my birthday and as I sit here I am filled with so much  love and adoration for  my Savior and King. He has truly let me fill his love. May the love of the Lord fill your home as you worship Him.    Oxoxoxoxo

Loving my Father and the Son and The Holy Spirit

When we celebrate life we celebrate one another!

Don't let years go by while you ignore talking with someone who has hurt you OR with someone you have hurt. Is there anything so important that you would be willing to lose a precious life over? Because we will not mend our ways, because we allow the spirit of pride to reign, this keeps us from being whole.  Look at Psalm 23 and we see "Surely goodness and mercy will follow us all the days of our life". Let them! Let them be there and let them be what you imitate; Goodness and Mercy.

I realize; Understanding goals, relationships and who to help, and who to love is important. So be careful who you choose, and what you give your time to. You are not God, so you cannot change the world, He will. Trust Him and He will speak to you and tell you who you are called to and who you are not called to. In an old book written by Oral Roberts he wrote that the people he let closest to him are the ones who hurt him the most. He is very careful who he lets near him now; He shared this with me when I was with him on June 25th 2008.
Oh how weak the flesh is! Our words can so wound the body of Christ, I repent openly Father, I too, at one time or another have been involved in the wrong talk about the body of Christ. My soul weeps for those who are not willing to mend their ways or words.  

 It is the time that the Bridegroom soon cometh for His bride. The body is all split up with the stirring spirit's that will not, count it all joy. Move on ,"Love when it doesn't make sense". Celebrate one another while there is still time and please "Give Love" it is the greatest thing you can give..

I send out Love to all of you..

God Bless  you all

Christ like Quality for enduring.

We all hit times when everything in our spiritual life seems void of inspiration. You have to make a decision in advance that you will never give up on the pursuit of G-d. It has to be in you, written out on the tablets of your heart, so it can not be stolen or shaken off of you when times get tough. We must be like the animals that store up for winter. Always preparing ourselves for the time when we may not be able to reach for the word or put on our worship. It must be what makes up, "who you are.' This kind of tenacious commitment to endurance will open the path to the most meaningful dimensions of relationship with the Lord.
Do you realize nothing can grow in constant sunshine (it would be a desert.) We must have rain in order to bring growth, fruit, and make our roots go deeper. Winter comes in cold and hard, but it does a lot of unknown good as it kills the bugs. Trees send their roots down deeper, a lot of unseen good comes out of winter.

It is easy to endure in the good times.  It is when the hard times hit that our endurance is proven.  Look at Colossians 1:11 which says:  Strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness.  
James 1:2-3: My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.  
We can see how He brings Bible saints through their hardships. 
Look at Romans 15:4 which says:  For whatever things are written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the scripture might have hope.
The word patience here in the Greek is hupomone which means constancy, perseverance, continuance, bearing up, steadfastness, patient endurance.
Please I charge you to endure to the end...

Let's look at the represents the eternally valuable change that God works within us in a place of constant distress, sand gets stuck in the shell and the oyster keeps rubbing it. The longer the distress for the pearl the more luster and the more valuable it is.  That is liken to the hard times that come into our lives. When we endure in "Love" through hardship, we will find ourselves one day walking through the Pearly Gates the "treasure of perfected hardship" I say walk it out in Victory.  Don't ever give up!  Through the might of G-d's spirit any hardship can be endured.

"Enlarge in who you Are in the Spirit of our Lord"

You are greatly loved!

I Love the Greatness of Men Like Moses and Elijah...

Moses could have cried about his life and let it keep him down .. He could of gone on, said I was abandoned. I was raised in a foster home, I was not celebrated, I stutter.
"No! He stepped up in greatness and rose to the full potential that the good Lord had for him, he finished the race.. well done thy good and faithful servant.

Moses received the Ten Commandments, which are still the foundational laws. With the Lord's power Moses confronted and shook the most powerful kingdoms and authorities, including Pharaoh and the magicians of Egypt, with signs and wonders following! (See Exodus 7-11.) He saw the Red Sea split, miracles of supernatural provision, entire armies destroyed, and he led his people to the verge of the promised land (see Exodus 14:13-21; Numbers ,21:21-35; Deut . 32: 48-52). The experiences that Moses had are without number and the record does not fully capture ALL he felt, did, and experienced in God.

Elijah; was not just a prophet, he also moved in signs and wonders, he came against the 450 prophets of Baal, he called fire down from heaven, he would also be transported from one physical location to another (see 1 Kings 18:7-12). He could command rain to stop for 3 1/2 years and to start again (see I Kings 17:1; 1 Kings 18:1). He raised the dead and did provisional miracles, like multiplying the widow's oil (see 1 Kings 17:17-24; 1 Kings 17: 9-16).

We can clearly see the power of trusting in God and HE moved heaven and earth on their behalf.

I have taught for over 7 years on 'Immediate Obedience" I know that in these 2 men we see the fruit of obedience evident in their lives. ( James 1:22) " But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves" If you have read it, you must do it and be obedient to LIVE the word.

We also have been called up to greatness, "Come on" ALL OF YOU I am driven to see the Father (Face to Face).. Lets go. Get your self together, put on your parachutes, and get ready to jump! The Father needs people to join shoulder to shoulder, Now !!!!!!

This is the year 2009 All in His time .. Full Victory!!!! Walk in it! Old things have passed way all things have been made new.

Ephesian 3:20-21 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

May Our Father in Heaven enrich your view of Him
In Jesus Mighty and all powerful Name.

Love to you all Pastor Cindi
