Ending Your Effort-filled Relationship With Survival
(Two Lovers -Two Trees)
Papa God shared...
The same fruit begets the same fruit in your life. You have to be willing to start eating from a different tree. When you eat from the Tree of Life, your taste buds change and develop. Again, life in Me is about feasting! So, wouldn't you say it's not through your own self-effort and disciplined ways? It is a matter of developing new tastebuds by changing what your eating and feasting on?
Oftentimes you have asked Me in your heart, “Lord, if You could just speak louder and get my attention, that would really help!” But sweetheart, if I did that, you would come to me out of force. My sheep should be tender enough to heed a quiet, still voice and a gentle nudge of My Spirit.
What if you hear Me, but you are so accustomed to doing things by responding to force that you are asking Me...
I was asking Papa, why we have to go through all the things we do?
Of course, being the wise counselor He is, He asked me a question right back ... "Amy, What make a good Sea Captain?" "Hmmmm?" I pondered. He continued, "What makes a great sea captain, is that he is experienced in the ways of the Sea." Simple answer, yet always profound, I thought.
Think about it...
You have asked me the question, “Lord, What must I do?” Do? I question. Papa responded, Haven’t I already done everything? What more could you do? If you are trying to "do," it means you are trying to "earn." What could you possibly earn from Me that I haven't already given you? I don’t want you to be focused on your self-works. It can become a great trap that ensnares many of My children. Refuse to go down the path of self-works...
Moms, Satan’s looking for ways to destroy you—and this pretty much outlines his plan, right here. Written in C.S. Lewis’ “Screwtape Letters” style, it’s absolutely chilling!
My Dear Wormwood,
I was thrilled to hear you have been making progress with the mother. You have a good lead, from what I hear. She’s feels over-worked, unappreciated, and discouraged? I’m so glad to hear it. If you tread carefully, this can be a great opportunity. With the kids waking her up every hour last night, we already have an advantage. A tired Mom makes for a more emotional Mom, and an emotional Mom is a vulnerable one.
I do have a few tips. First, aim your best efforts at her marriage...
I am a part of the fellowship of the unashamed.
I have Holy Ghost power!
The die has been cast.
I have stepped over the line.
The decision has been made.
I am a disciple of His.
I will not look back...

DON'T GET STUCK AT THE HALF WAY POINT, DON'T TRHOW IN THE TOWEL OR GET TORN BY DIRECTIONS. FOLLOW PEACE AND MOVE FORWARD FOR...
This is your time for the bumper crop.
This is your time to see the green light.
This is your moment to walk out on that stage.
This is your time to put your hand to the Spirit led business plan.
This is your time to say no once and for all to the many things that distract you...
A Short Story by John Meyer... Late rent, bills collectors, overdrafts, self-effort, and a rock quarry...
"OMG! Not again! I can’t believe this is happening to me! I just can’t take it anymore,” shouts Jason, with a blistering torrent! The walls in his living room turn from a soft shade of beige to a cool grey in a matter of seconds, as the place turns into an echoing chamber of desperation and fear.
“I just don’t understand how this keeps happening to us? I am doing all I know how to do, and we just keep getting further and further behind! Why are these jobs not working out?” Jason continues as he slams himself into the wooden chair. Not realizing ...
