JOY IS POWERFUL

Quite simply, what brings you joy? Joy is a pretty good indicator that you are hitting your stride on the right path. Notice the feelings that arise as you move easily through your day. Pain is also something to pay attention to. This is an indicator that something needs to be shifted. So become more curious about your pain as well. When you feel this feeling, simply observe and accept it. Do nothing but feel the feeling. My tendency is to put the focus on the cause of the pain (usually another person), however, that victim mentality is no longer the work for me. I don't know about you, but I'm getting pretty tired of my patterns and getting tired of being in pain, wanting things to be different than they are and wishing they would (or magically that the other person would change). I have been in the thick of it, and it is a dead end for me. More and more, I realize that I create this feeling all on my own, not wanting to take responsibility and make a shift within. I am looking to become more whole within myself. More self-contained and connected with spirit. That feeling of bliss, the feeling of the 'yes', of moving towards the joy, is an indicator that we are moving towards spirit and is quite fulfilling, for we cannot simply curb our addiction to painful feelings; we must replace them with something positive.

As you move through the world this week, pay special attention to what helps to make you feel good. Make your list of favorite things. Each day, practice something on this list.

For me:
  1. An entirely free ME day
  2. Watching a sunset 
  3. Chatting with a friend over a tea
  4. The elements: being outside (riding with the top down is included here)
  5. Kissing
  6. Moving my body vigorously
  7. Handwriting in my journal 
  8. Coffee
  9. The ocean
  10. Helping someone and expecting nothing in return

  2. LUCIFER WANTS YOU DRY

    Why does Satan want you to stay away from the the watery grave of baptism?

    1. Mark 16:16 He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned.

    Lucifer wants you dry so you cannot be saved.

    2. Acts 8:39 When they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord snatched Philip away; and the eunuch no longer saw him, but went on his way rejoicing.

    Beelzebub wants you dry to prevent you from rejoicing.

    3. Acts 22:16 Now why do you delay? Get up and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on His name.

    The Devil wants you dry so your sins will not be washed away.

    4. Galatians 3:27 For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.

    The prince of darkness wants you dry so you will not be clothed with Christ.

    5. Acts 2:41,47 So then, those who had received his word were baptized; and that day there were added about three thousand souls. 47 ...And the Lord was adding to their number day by day those who were being saved.

    Satan wants you dry because he does not want you saved and subsequently added to the Lord's church.

    6. Romans 6:4 Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.


    The prince of devils wants you dry to keep you from walking in a new life with Christ.

    7. Romans 6:6 knowing this, that our old self was crucified with Him, in order that our body of sin might be done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin;

    Lucifer wants you dry so you will remain a slave to sin.

    8. Romans 6:11 Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.

    Beelzebub wants you dry so you cannot be alive to God in Christ Jesus.

    9. 1 Peter 3:21 Corresponding to that, baptism now saves you---not the removal of dirt from the flesh , but an appeal to God for a good conscience---through the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

    The prince of the devils wants you dry because he does not want you to be saved.

    10. Acts 2:38 Peter said to them, "Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

    Lucifer wants you dry because he does not want you to have your sins forgiven nor does he want you to receive indwelling gift of the Holy Spirit.

    11. Colossians 2:12-13 ..buried with Him in baptism...13 When you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made you alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our transgressions.

    Beelzebub wants you dry because he does not want your transgressions forgiven.

    12. Titus 3:5 He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have dine in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by thewashing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit,

    The Devil want you dry so will remain unsaved.

    13. John 3:5 Jesus answered, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

    The prince of darkness wants you dry in order to keep you from entering the kingdom of God.

    14. Ephesians 5:25-27 ...Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, 26 so that He might sanctify her , having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, 27 that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory , having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless.

    Satan wants you dry because he does not want you sanctified, cleansed, nor holy and blameless.

    15. Revelation 20:15 And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

    Lucifer wants you dry because he does not want your name written in the Lamb's book of life.He want you to be thrown into the lake of fire.
