What voice are you hearing?

Standard

I have been meditating a lot on this topic-
We are a triune being- we are a spirit, we possess a soul, and we live in a physical body.


…and a few days ago during my morning devotion it came up again…

So I decided to give birth to my thoughts and see what’s born…

Many have ‘awareness’ of this concept, based on bible truth-but few have revelation that we are a three part being and each part has a voice:

‘Conscience’ is the voice of our human spirit.
‘Reason’ is the voice of the soul, or mind.
‘Feeling’ is the voice of our body, or flesh.

Our Heavenly Father connects with us through our spirits, our inward witness… He doesn’t speak to our soul or our bodies… 

Nowhere in the Bible are we told God speaks to our body., or has a relationship with our mind.  

On the contrary, it’s our spirit man that is born again, but our mind has to be renewed daily.

Yet, the enemy ALWAYS gains access to us through our bodies (flesh) and our souls (mind)… in the ‘sense arena’- Satan appeals to what we ‘see’, ‘feel’, ‘hear’, ‘imagine’ or ‘think.’

And this is where it’s dangerous.

Satan is a liar, the father of all lies, in him there is no truth.   (John 8:44) He is a master of deception, and though there is nothing good about Satan, he is good at what he does:



Kill.  Steal.  Destroy.

That’s it.  That is his job description according to John 10:10.

He uses our senses to deceive us, so he can steal from us, destroy us, kill us.
Satan can not succeed however, unless we permit him to.  And God will permit what we permit.

Most of us get caught in the ‘feeling’ part… and get stuck there.

Many believe if they feel sick that they are sick.  Then they begin confessing the sickness, and their confession soon leads to possession… 

Before you are even aware- the thought that came by a wrong feeling was entertained, and settled into the heart, then confessed out of the mouth- bingo.  

Life is born from the wrong thought, that failed to get caught or run through the filter of Truth, God’s Word.

Follow the fruit to its root. Did it come to kill, steal or destroy, or, did it come to bring life, more abundantly
Folks- consider the root and inspect the fruit.


Many times you will actually hear people refer to a sickness as theirs…  In talking about it, without thinking, often they will say something like “my cancer has returned” thus, they are calling it theirs.  
Or, will say something like “I have the flu.” Taking ownership of it… agreeing with, permitting it rights to remain., assuming  there is no other way- if they have medical facts it exists, if they are feeling the symptoms, it must be so. 

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” (Proverbs 18:21).

Many believe that if they see, hear or feel it, ‘it’ must be true.

I’m not suggesting we live with our head in the clouds and ignore reality, symptoms, feelings or facts.  I’m stating that though something might exist and be a fact doesn’t mean it has the rights to remain and become a truth.

Friends, there’s a profound difference between ‘truth’ and ‘fact.’

If we give in to what we feel, or hear, or see- we are not living by faith. We are living by the worlds standards, not God’s.  We become a ploy for the enemy.

If we ‘feel’ something, we believe we ‘are’ what we feel. If we go by feelings alone, we become deceived and give in to these feelings.

God doesn’t call us to walk by our ‘feelings’. 

He created us with feelings, our emotions serve a purpose and it’s good to understand them, but as believers, we are not called to live by our feelings or get caught in the sense realm.

Rather, we are called to live by faith., by the Spirit. Not by sight.

Feelings are subject to change.

Thoughts and reasoning are subject to change.

Feelings and thoughts are based on facts- and facts are subject to change.

Truth (Jesus is Truth- and Jesus is The Word- therefore God’s Word is Truth.). So Truth, however, will never change, but has the power to change facts when acted upon by faith.

We are spirit, soul and body. Each has a voice.  

So… I’ll close with this thought provoking question:
Which voice is dominating you?   
1 Thess 5:23. Romans 8:1.  

12 Cor 5:7-10. Gal 5:18-20.

John 17:17.

Such a Time As This

Standard

I received some bad news today regarding Charles in Uganda.
Charles is a 15 year old boy whom I met in February this year, 2017, while there on a mission trip.   

Though there were thousands of people present who we prayed with, helped, and ministered to- when Charles approached me asking for me to pray for him, something happened.  
The Holy Spirit deposited this message into my spirit, “He is why you are here.”
Instantly, God-bumps arose all up and down my arms, an an instant Word of knowledge came to me by the Spirit.
Charles needed our help- and I was the vessel to get him connected to the help he needed.
Charles was diagnosed with a rare cancer at the early age of 9. 

His loving parents spent all they had to get him the care he needed, which included radiation, chemotherapy, and when that didn’t stop the aggressive cancer, surgery to remove the tumor on his right eye.

Sadly, the family ran out of funds… and the returned surgery planned for 6 weeks later never occurred in 2012…so this young boy had an open wound in the area where his eye used to be… getting infected…
When I met him this February, the eye was covered by gauze, and tape, but it was unclean.  When he asked me to pray for him, he apologized for the odor and pointed to his eye.  

He explained what I just shared, and asked if I would pray for him to be healed.  The odor was quite foul.
Yes.  
I laid hands on him, and prayed for his healing.  I prayed for his provision.  

I found out he had to drop out of school, since all the funds were being used for medical.  I found out he had a large family of brothers, and two young sisters.  I found out he had a dream.
But, like most 15 year olds, he had given up on his dream of becoming a doctor, because he had given up all hope of living through the cancer.
Without funds, there would be no treatment.
Without treatment, the cancer would continue spreading, and would eventually take his life.
So we said no to Satan, the spirit behind the sickness that bound him, and called him healed by the blood of Jesus.
I led him to the director, and first got him to wound care to treat the infected area, and then obtained permission to personally assist him. (Necessary when on a mission trip with an organization other than your own.)


We were able to go with him to meet his family at his homestead village in the bush.  


I was able to hold his hand, and watch hope come back to his countenance, with a smile from ear to ear.

I told him how God loved him so much and saw his struggles, and sent me from America to Uganda for such a time as this.  
I told him we would do all we could to help him get the eye surgery necessary so he could return to school.  I said ” hmmmm. Dr Charles…. that sounds good!”  
So a plan was arranged with the local doctor and pastor, funds were given to have Charles and his parents sent to hospital and to provide for food, transportation and lodging, and medical testing.
This all began on 2/24/17.  His initial biopsy showed him to be cancer free!  We were so happy! 
But then other symptoms began to appear… and his short term hospital stay has now grown into 5 months… and more bad news…
The cancer has returned and he will need to begin aggressive chemotherapy again on this coming Tuesday.
My husband and I had been covering the ongoing expenses each month out of pocket, and reached out to others through speaking engagements Churches 4 Africa: Planting Seeds 4 Love, through our newly formed non profit, iamjesusgal ministries.
The initial funds received specifically for Charles has long since been sent. Much more is needed.  
How can you help?
First and foremost, pray.  Prayers of faith for his complete healing are vitally important while we wait for these symptoms he’s experiencing to line up with God’s Word.  Prayers for finances to come are also needed.
****In order for Charles to receive treatment and ongoing medical care, we are asking if able, please make a contribution on our website, Iamjesusgal ministries, and in the comments state ‘Charles medical care-Uganda’.*****
The Christian Doctor, whom I personally know there in Uganda, is working hand in hand with his cancer doctors providing his care as long as funds continue.  She is reporting back to me his specific needs, and giving an account of each dollar given.
Currently they are in need of $500 US dollars very quickly., to ensure he receives necessary medical care.
I’m saddened by this news., but hopeful for his prognosis based on GOD’S report! 
Thank you to all who have helped thus far.  Thank you for reading this, and I hope, thank you for sharing this… and more, I hope, thank you for prayerfully making a contribution to help Charles live and not die.
“I will live and not die, and shall proclaim the deeds of the Lord.”

Homeless Center: it SHALL come to pass

Standard

When God gives you a vision… when God gives you a word… when God gives you a promise- then you can believe it shall come to pass. 
We founded and lead a 501 (C) 3 non profit ministry, ‘Helping The Homeless.’ 
God gave a clear vision plan, and step by step over the last 7 years it’s been unfolding into existence just as He said. 
 Every step has been laying the foundation, strong and sure, for its purpose. 
People are God most precious and valuable asset. 

Yet in our world we have people starving, hungry and thirsty, homeless. 
And people with the means to change this often walk right past them. 
We treat animals with better provisions of shelters and humane societies than our struggling neighbors, and this just is NOT OK. 
I’m not talking about applying a bandaid to a gapping wound- I am talking about a plan to resolve this problem for good.   I’m talking about a solution. 
A bible based plan, one that God Himself implemented and illustrated for us. 
We are by faith calling our 12 month Christ-Centered discipleship center, ‘CAMP RESTORATION’ into existence- a place where the hurting and broken people struggling with homelessness can come restore their lives and hearts freely, build a firm foundation of faith, learn job skills, anger management skills, money management skills, receive the love and support needed to get back in their feet and become independently dependent on Christ, then assist with finding transportation, employment and own housing during transition into being back in their own… 
I can see it.  Can you visualize it? I’ve been seeing it, ever since God gave me the vision in a dream.  And it SHALL come to pass!
It’s all about loving our neighbors and caring for others the way God said to do, changing the life of homelessness one person, one family at a time.

Gabriella’s Prayer 

Standard


Introducing to you a “prayer mission@ challenge…
 “Gabriella’s Prayer”
This precious young girl, Gabriella, only 10 years old- has a heart of gold.
She heard about our mission trip to Uganda, heard about the 15 year old boy named Charles who has been fighting a rare cancer in his eye and brain whom iamjesusgal ministries is funding his medical care-


She heard about the struggles his family has to find food and efforts to find water by walking hours carrying plastic jugs, returning with dirty water…

she heard about his little sisters fighting malnutrition and parasites…


And so Gabriella decided to do something about it!!!
She raised on her own $32… and donated it to us today.
Her prayer is that God will multiply this $32 so that we can present Charles and his family with a BRAND NEW WELL!!!

A water well in the poorest part of Uganda saves lives.

Thus, we launch “Gabriella’s Prayer!”
We are asking you to match her donation by going to our website, 
 Iamjesusgal ministries website
and click on ‘donate now! In comments, please put ‘Gabriella’s Prayer’ for Charles water well!
Then-
Please share this, add hashtag #Gabriellasprayer and join us in faith and watch God do it!!!
By providing this for Charles and his family, the entire village benefits!

PLANTING SEEDS

Standard

As a young girl in 1975, God placed His Love in my heart for Africa.  A missionary came to my church, and showed pictures of childrenfrom Africa who were very poor, very hungry, and very thirsty.
  I cried.
Something stirred in my heart when I saw those images. It left an impression on me that became part of me.  
HOW?


How can we, here in the USA, have so much, when they, there in Africa, have so little?
WHY?
Why-WHY did God bless us with an abundance, to the point where much of what Ge has given is wasted?  Much we have is taken for granted, not even used, even disregarded, as if it’s not important. 

Why is that?  
I’ve not been able to rationalize the why’s.  Nor have I been able to forget.
It’s not fair for us to have so much and they have so little.  

MAYBE…


Maybe, when God blessed the USA, when our founding forefathers created our governmental body on Godly principles and values…
Maybe, when God poured out His blessings upon us as a nation so much so there wasn’t room to contain it…

Iamjesusgal 
Maybe, when God saw the worship, virtue, and devotion to Him and His Holy Word as a Christian Nation– He expected us to OBEY His Word?
Maybe, when He blessed us with wealth, He intended us to USE the wealth and prosperity He blessed us with to HELP OTHERS in need, first here at home, and then to our NEIGHBORING countries? 


No where in scriptures does it say we are to bear one another’s burdens ONLY IN AMERICA. (Or, only at OUR church!)


No where in scriptures does it say we are to do unto others as we would have them do unto us ONLY IN AMERICA. (Or, only at OUR church!)


No where in scriptures does it say we are to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, give drink to the thirsty, and provide shelter to the homeless ONLY IN AMERICA. (Or, only at OUR church.)


God commands us, His Church, the body of Christ, to GO YE into the WORLD, not ONLY IN AMERICA. 


God so loved the WORLD and sent His only Son Jesus into the lost and dying WORLD, not ONLY IN AMERICA. 
God established my missionary journey right here where I live- in my daily life, in my community, in my work place (a Christian Insurance Agency God blessed me to own).  Then He expanded my journey regionally… with a Homeless Ministry God led me to establish and lead, Helping The Homeless Ministry.



But the impression of hungry, needy children in Africa He put on my heart as a young girl… and the LOVE for the people of Africa He placed in my heart as a young girl, never faded.   
My love for Africa only grew STRONGER.
Last year, April-May 2016, I was blessed to go to South Africa on a mission trip with the Joyce Meyers Ministries HAND OF HOPE.  I was in a very small, impoverished village called Idutawa, in Butterworth. The feeling of FINALLY placing my feet on the soil there for the first time is indescribable!
There were incredible sights, but even more heartbreaking ones.  The lifestyle they live is straight out of the Old Testament era… with shepherds guarding their flock, plowing fields by hand, walking miles to find water and searching daily to gather food to feed their families.  

Then this year, God lead me to return to my beloved Africa- to Uganda and to Tanzania. 
I knew as soon as I was there THIS was where God wants my ministry to focus. 
The people are beautiful and work very hard for basic essentials necessary to live- clean water & food. 
We are spoiled here in America and blessed beyond measure- everything we could want or need at our fingertips- but why is this so?
The purpose of wealth is NOT to hoard to ourselves. There’s people, PEOPLE– and children- CHILDREN!!! dying of starvation… and we CAN and SHOULD do something about it.
We have the ability to make a difference and to end world hunger.  But will we?  
We are.   And you’re invited to help. 
iamjesusgal ministries is currently speaking at local churches presenting “CHURCHES FOR AFRICA: PLANTING SEEDS OF LOVE.”

Between May 3- May 10, we will have Minister-Missionary Wendy Roundy and her Tanzanian guest, Bishop Andrew Mukasa, speak on the mission fields in Uganda and Tanzania.   Roundy will continue to schedule speaking engagements beyond this date upon request.
You will learn first hand accounts and up to date issues these people are challenged with, AND WAYS TO PLANT YOUR SEEDS OF LOVE.


It’s been said that one person can’t change the world.  But I disagree.
According to scriptures we were created to multiply, ‘every seed reproduces after its own kind.’


Each one of us, doing our part, reproduces in others, and the world is changed for Christ.

One person can’t change the world, but ONE CHURCH (the body of Christ) can.

I can’t say THANK YOU enough to everyone who has sown seeds into our ministry.
It’s not ‘my’ ministry.  It’s OURS.  God called us together as one body to do HIS mission of reaching the lost and helping those in need.
YOU are making this happen!  
Thank you, and may God bless you!
