Finish with no Vacancy

Hey guys it’s lexi here.. a couple of months ago during the g12 conference hawaii I was asked a log with so many other incredible People from my church (Word of Life christian Center). Anyways I wrote this and got share it on our countdown to our conference and I’m so excited to share with you all enjoy!

Scripture: Matthew 19:14 The Passion Translation (TPT)

14 Jesus overheard them and said, “I want little children to come

to me, so never interfere with them when they want to come, for

heaven’s kingdom realm is composed of beloved ones[a] like

these! Listen to this truth: No one will enter the kingdom realm of

heaven unless he becomes like one of these!”[b]

Daily… Jesus is calling and I believe his ultimate desire is your “WANT” for Him to be greater than your NEED. God wants us to draw near. In that secret place he always finishes what he’s begun in you. It’s through your journey with Him, Jesus takes you to that deep place. Did you know there’s always more? Did you know He wants to be with you all the time? Did you know He wants you to take time out of your day and just be with Him. So go ahead and be with Jesus. He’s there with you! It’s that drawing near of a child that you can just go right there to Him! Jumping in His arms! Going back to the start is being that child again, its being right there where nothing stopped you from getting you healing… because all you wanted was your daddy. Nothing stopped your embrace, because you’re a child… so you went running to Him! It’s there in the Child like faith of running to Him we find everything we ever needed.

Something to think about:

Go ahead and be with your Jesus. Make him your favorite, because you are His. He created you in His image (Genesis 1:27). I’m reminded of my Momma sharing a story with me about me, and she said, “It was when you were 3 years old we were in a line at McDonalds. I shouted… Momma please tell that lady, “Jesus loves her.” The Holy Spirit just reminds me daily of what he wants me to do and that he never leaves me. I get to that place when I become a child in His arms!

1

Declaration:

“Because I am a child of God. I can receive all he has for me and feel his warm embrace with everything I do.”

Make em’ Laugh (Lol)

Make em’ Laugh (Lol)

My friend told me that laughter is the best medicine. I absolutely love to make people laugh. It’s a serious joy that I have and I love just seeing smiles on peoples faces. I like to come to a place where I could be making them laugh so hard that they are almost peeing in their pants! This is the joy that I like to bring to anyone that comes around me! I believe I was born to belly laugh! I was just talking to my friend Shelby actually I’m gonna share with you our actual conversation!

Shelby: you know Lex, in the past few months i’ve learned if you don’t laugh you’ll cry. but why cry when there’s so much to laugh about, you know?

me: Yeah exactly and when you do laugh hard enough the tears come out anyways in a joyful way

These are real moments that I’ve had with people who deal with real life and the thing is the joy that the Lord brings you it’s not a feeling it’s undeniable there is this joy that comes from your bones. I don’t like to say o wanna make you forget your worries because reality it hard but when we can take a breather and just LAUGH 😂 SO HARD THE TEARS CLME OUT ITS THE BEST!

So I’m here to tell you let’s laugh together let’s have joy overflowing! When we can just tune into that joy he’s given us it sthe best ever!!!!

Let’s take a minute and laugh LOL

We are Family!!!

We are Family!!!

 “We are family”

Recently I got to be In Sweden it was such a blessing for me I got to meet people and Instantly knew and thought…

“Where have you been my whole Life?”

I Admire the Pastoral  family so much, they all became my sisters, brother, and Aunty and Uncle and instantly all their kids are now my Nieces and Nephews! This was a family going beyond my Hawaiian 🌺 Culture, it was a Jesus Culture! 

Honey I’m Home!!!!

_________________________________________________________________________

Question? 

Have you ever gone somewhere and knew  instantly knew  “I’m Home”!!! 🙌✨⚡️

This is  what it’s like with Jesus wherever we take Him,  we’re Home!

__________________________________________________________________________

God desires you to make him Home because his promise is that were Home with Him in us when we ask Him to come into our hearts.

Lets Read the word:

Jesus’ True Family

46 While Jesus was still speaking to the crowds, his mother and brothers came and stood outside, asking for him to come out and speak with them. 47 Then someone said, “Look, your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to have a word with you.” 48 But Jesus just looked at him and said, “Let me introduce you to my true mother and brothers.”49 Then gesturing to the disciples gathered around him, he said, “Look closely, for this is my true family. 50 When you obey my heavenly Father, that makes you a part of my true family.”

MY Repsonse: Now I want to now talk about my view and break down of this scripture. This verse is a key to understand one of the beautiful things about Heaven and Earth. Here we go. I believe Jesus was clear he wasn’t wanting his Momma to feel rejected but as much as he loved, even she needed to understand who she was in Her true FATHER “Abba”!

Does this make sense? So what was he trying to say here? He was saying Guys I love you so much so come know me through your true father, and my true Father God in heaven and lets live for eternity together because if you follow me we’re eternally family! Thats the thing about The Body of Christ we’re not distant cousins We’re instantly family! So Jesus gives us all this invitation to be apart of the Kingdom Family because His blood is what bonds us all and His blood is the one that is thicker than water!

_______________________________________________________________________

The Phrase “We are Family” is the  key that the Kingdom of Heaven isn’t a competition. We help one another in our short comings. Honestly when were honest about what God has done and even is doing in us that when Gods mercy is extended. God our Father comes just like he said he would because he is faithful to His Promise and comes to fill the cracks in our lives because that’s what family does. They protect the integrity of your heart and fill the areas maybe you thought you wouldn’t be able to fill . Honestly we can’t do everything so the Holy Spirit comes to fill the cracks. When we look to God again as our Father and We look to the cross and Jesus as everything Father, Son, and Holy Spirit!

We cannot have one without the other! Gods hand is on us in this special way where he shows us even around the world the people who will fill these areas!!!! “We are family”!

Come and Let the Holy spirit show you who your family is. So they can hep band work with you for His Kingdom Come!  I want to take a moment to twll you who is reading this I’m you’re Family and I love you!!!!

This Weekend Heaven touched Earth and He showed me the best How much he loves me because of the Heavenly Vision I’m in I have family around the World and wherever Jesus is I’m home! So I’m always Home.

Come on Home, Son or Daughter let’s do life together because We are Family!!!!

 This song here is a song that has really been ministering to me, it would be my Song of the week! 

I want to share some of my family from Sweden with you they are beautiful people inside and out!!!!

Love you all!!!!

Burrrrrrrnnnnnnnninnnnnn!!!!!

Burrrrrrrnnnnnnnninnnnnn!!!!!

So a book I’ve been reading lately is by Reinhard Bonke called “Holy Spirit are we flammable or fireproof?”

This has been incredible! We recently had our #G12Hawaii Conference which was huge for us and we had Evangelist Reinhard Bonke with us! It was an incredible time.. I had him and my Pastor (Pastor Cesar Castellanos) which to be around two GIANTS OF THE FAITH was THE ULTIMATE HONOR! My heart was so blessed and honor, but this fire that so many love and pray for is a time hear we can’t take slightly!

I don’t want to be fireproof I want to be

Flammable!!!!! Let me burn forever!!!

Let’s read: the word that brings life..

“Then his father Zechariah was filled with the Holy Spirit and prophesied: Praise the Lord, the God of Israel, because He has visited and provided redemption for His people. He has raised up a horn of salvation for us in the house of His servant David, just as He spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets in ancient times; salvation from our enemies and from the clutches of those who hate us. He has dealt mercifully with our fathers and remembered His holy covenant — the oath that He swore to our father Abraham. He has given us the privilege, since we have been rescued from our enemies’ clutches, to serve Him without fear in holiness and righteousness in His presence all our days.”

‭‭Luke‬ ‭1:67-75‬ ‭HCSB‬‬

The Holy Spirit is definitely a fire 🔥 that comes and burns us completely

When I read this chapter the Holy Spirit reminds me what he’s come to do in and through our lives! Always coming to burn us… I heard from “Lillian De Fin”

Smith Wigglesworth’ granddaughter said in a video “we all have the fire of God we just need to activate it, we’re all meant to do signs and wonder it’s not for just one person, we’re all called to do this”.

One of the main things I love about the time we live in is your anointing won’t look like my anointing. It can’t be and won’t be just like Lillian De Fin I’m sure wanted to look the way her grandfather did when she laid hands on people but it doesn’t look the same but it’s the same fire 🔥! We need to burn!!! Let’s read again

“the oath that He swore to our father Abraham. He has given us the privilege, since we have been rescued from our enemies’ clutches, to serve Him without fear in holiness and righteousness in His presence all our days.”

‭‭Luke‬ ‭1:73-75‬ ‭HCSB‬‬

I love how it’s says “to serve him without fear

In his presence all our days!

If you think about it that’s us with the fire of God on our lives forever that’s how he operates in our lives. He desires for us to be with him and when we’re with him we lay hands we want to go out and evangelize!

Come on let’s go and do it!!!!

What fountain do you drink from?

What fountain do you drink from?

So this has been something huge for me that I’ve been taught so much about being careful about the fountain you drink from!

I want to share a little bit with you!

When I think of a fountain I think of the Women at the well and how she spoke with Jesus but didn’t know she was speaking with Jesus.. actually let’s read it together!

“Wearied by his long journey, he sat on the edge of Jacob’s well. He sent his disciples into the village to buy food, for it was already afternoon. Soon a Samaritan woman came to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give me a drink of water.”

Surprised, she said, “Why would a Jewish man ask a Samaritan woman for a drink of water?” Jesus replied, “If you only knew who I am and the gift that God wants to give you—you’d ask me for a drink, and I would give to you living water.”

The woman replied, “But sir, you don’t even have a bucket and this well is very deep. So where do you find this ‘living water’? Do you really think that you are greater than our ancestor Jacob who dug this well and drank from it himself, along with his children and livestock?”

Jesus answered, “If you drink from Jacob’s well you’ll be thirsty again and again, but if anyone drinks the living water I give them, they will never thirst again and will be forever satisfied! For when you drink the water I give you it becomes a gushing fountain of the Holy Spirit, springing up and flooding you with endless life!” The woman replied, “Let me drink that water so I’ll never be thirsty again and won’t have to come back here to draw water.” Jesus said, “Go get your husband and bring him back here.””

‭‭John‬ ‭4:6-16‬ ‭TPT‬‬

Okay guys so as we just read this morning the fountain Jesus was talking about himself right? Come and drink from him and there will be a never ending springing well that’s what we can process after we have a covenant with God! It all start with

Me + Jesus = everything else

You + Jesus = everything else!

My dad who is also my Pastor shared with my family.. “many know enough of the word to know, but not enough to enjoy their life with Jesus”

So I ask again what fountain are you drinking from? We can be going to all these sources but God has called us to a specific place with him a specific church to dwell and allow the roots to be flourished and watered constantly!

Here a few questions to see what fountain you drink from?

What church are you attending?

Are you serving? Or do you only serve when you know you’ll be seen?

Do you know the spirit of your church?

So many times we distract ourselves with so many different ministries and we get excited what everyone else is doing and here God is waiting to show you like hey I have so much for your life come and just be with me I’ll water those roots!

Do you let your roots just slightly get wet or have they been hidden and rooted in the water of life ready to flourish?

Do you drink the fountain of Jesus and protect yourself with his word and guard yourself from being that sheep that just keeps going out?

He will always be the good shepherd or your life but he wants to come in and be every other name in the Bible for you as well! Can you let him be more to you!

It all starts in your garden go back and dwell in that tent with him today!

We have a conquest and the key for me is what I have with Jesus I would never trade for anything but I don’t keep it I share it and evangelism isn’t hard for me because I’m telling my story this how much I love him and I’ve activated the power of the Holy Spirit on my life so I can keep going and going because the fire in me and on me! Jesus told the women at the well “For when you drink the water I give you it becomes a gushing fountain of the Holy Spirit, springing up and flooding you with endless life!”

This is what he wants to do with your life!!!!!!!

Amen 🙏🏻

Take offs and Landing! ⚡️🛬

So recently I’ve been given the best opportunity to travel with my family for ministry but also fun as well!

I thought 💭 recently about the take off process all that it takes for the those who work the plane, and those passengers preparing for a take off.. the preparation for a flight I think can be sometimes very intense the preparation to go I don’t know the life of the pilot or the flight attendance but I do know a little of the life of the passenger. The other day my friend was texting me about all the preparations she was taking for her and her kids to get to go on this trip. And then there are unprepared yet prepped distractions that come your way!

I believe that God has been speaking to me about preparation and always be earnestly seeking so I can be ready for anything Spirit, Soul, and Body!

I was in this place recently when I was so annoyed because of something that happened but I was outwardly annoyed and in that moment I know that I didn’t say “hey this morning I prayed an led believed a distraction would come but even tho I wasn’t expectant or this distraction I was definitely well equipped for it. When we tune into what he Holy Spirit says to us about these distractions we are ready and prepared earnestly seeking and we will earnestly find. I was in the book of Luke and reading Luke 11. I was reading a book by Cindy Jacobs and below I’ll share my highlight and my notes..

I believe this was happening with me on the plane ✈️ and right now in this moment I’m believing for my laptop to completely be covered by the biggest prayers even for the smallest thing. But i believe the Holy Spirit just revealed that to me that “nothing is small to God” nothing nothing is even an inch away from his heart if it matters to us it matters to him. Of course we don’t think of objects as things that carry much of anything in our lives but, I know it’s key for us all to be in clarity that nothing is meaningless when we think it meaningless we don’t activate our faith. Because what constitutes that’s big enough for Him to move on your behalf! Yesterday when I was reading Luke 11 I was reminded of the faith God wants us to have…

So it is with your prayers. Ask and you’ll receive. Seek and you’ll discover. Knock on heaven’s door, and it will one day open for you. Every persistent person will get what he asks for. Every persistent seeker will discover what he needs. And everyone who knocks persistently will one day find an open door.”

Luke 11:9-10 TPThttp://bible.com/1849/luk.11.9-10.tpt

Another reference “You are blessed because you believed that what the Lord said to you would really happen.””

Luke 1:45 NCVhttp://bible.com/105/luk.1.45.ncv

So this was similar to that plane ride for me my emotions initially was annoyed and in that moment I spoke to that and didn’t allow my take off to carry any distractions and I dealt with the root. I was praying in the spirit because I didn’t know why this happened but God showed me this and it was wonderful. When you’re faced with difficulty and you already feel sorry for yourself you’re not operating in a life of faith. Because you’re thinking he doesn’t care about this. When you take off in your spiritual life,

Your physical life and your emotional life, don’t think anything is too small or even to big there is no measure for God! It’s the measure of your faith! Take off work it out and when you land, you’ll land in a place of peace understanding speaking to him directly Spirit to spirit the best code language!

Have a great take off guys love you all!

Take off picture ready for anything that God has 10 times More!

Landing picture with this winning gem 💎 Vale. My super friend one who had my heart definitely.

Her character reflects her heart for Jesus! Love you!

Living the Dream!

What is your dream? Have you ever received the dream or heaven for your life? If so, what does it look like? What does it sound like? Can you hear it? What keeps you?

It’s really important to receive this dream for your life. Maybe you ask this question who am I? What is the dream? What dreams do you have for me?

In order to know Gods dreams for your life you also need to know you’re season so that you can be the most fruitful in your season. When you don’t get a handle on your season or even had a clue your season has changed then this will be super difficult in your life..

this is a prophetic word I wrote out and I believe whosever reads this will get deep healing. Today let’s read his word. Get nurtured by his word and know his timing is beyond our recollection.

Below is the prophetic word go ahead and read!!!!

In this new season you’re in its unfamiliar but the thing I’ve learned is every time we change seasons it’s never the same because when we are in a “new season” it’s not like

The weather is changing and I know how it goes because there is only 4 seasons. Because when you are changing seasons with God it’s spirit to spirit so the season will

NEVER EVER BE THE SAME.

this is a super natural

Season and when you are in that you will

Be tested the MOST!

With every area of your life

Spirit

Soul

Body

But I will tell You this you will CONQUER!

Let’s know that everything the Father has for ya it stored up in the secret place that part of your season will never change things around you may change but he remains. My uncle Luna shared something recently that there was a reason he revealed himself as “I am” to Moses because we know he is all things past present and future, but he is always present. So take comfort even in your season he is in your present! Your right now!!!! Breath him in!

Recently one of my dreams came to pass me and a few of my family members got to go to England and see a beautiful nation! My heart was so blessed to be there! Here are some pictures of what God did in my season and showed me how I could

Still be “Living the dream”

What you see on the outside is only the beginning!

“Slow down take time breath in He says he’ll REVEAL WHATS TO COME. The thoughts in his mind always higher than mine and he’ll reveal what’s to come. So take courage my hope stay steadfast, He’s in the waiting, he’s in the waiting.” (Song take courage) by: Kristene DiMarco

That song completely ministers to be in my time with God and reminds me that what you see on the outside is only the beginning!

All of my conquests begins “in my secret garden” or as she refers “the waiting”!

the “Slow” is so important in your time with God! So many times we want to speed up so many things in our Lives actually almost everything we want to go into Hyper-speed. Yet what God has for us is in the “Slow” moments that we slow it down. The thing is we can’t get a day a back we can’t get a minute back its the way the time works so when we are in our “Slow” moment we are creating intentional time.  So many times people are wanting to make time or feel like there isn’t enough time in the day yet when we SLOW it all down.  We begin to see things in a different way. We see Jesus in a different way we actually get to know who he is. It’s in that moment in my Secret Garden we slow it all down and we see Jesus we walk with Him and he takes us and we see Him! When we slow down  we can see the Promise, but my point were not in our secret Garden for the promise that’s the extra stuff we get after being there delighting in all he is.

 

Psalm 100 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Praise God 

100 A poetic song for thanksgiving
Lift up a great shout of joy to the Lord!
    Go ahead and do it—everyone, everywhere!
As you serve him, be glad and worship him.
    Sing your way into his presence with joy!
And realize what this really means—
    we have the privilege of worshiping the Lord our God.
    For he is our Creator and we belong to him.
    We are the people of his pleasure.[a]

 

Now because I shared that verse above that’s the GOAL, Delight in the Lord our God, and in that place we will grow deep roots and the outer won’t be the main thing people will begin to see your Life  hidden In Christ! That is the GOAL  that’s what we begin to Look like in this time when we take time to SLOW DOWN! LET THIS HAPPEN! I hear Jesus saying to me “Hey Just say when” and he’ll do it! He’ll do it for you every way. So today lets not stop loving Jesus just when we see the flowers sprout in our Garden but let’s make it our Goal to be so hidden in Jesus  that everyone see’s Him in us. It’s like where did she go. Oh she’s hidden in Christ! 

 

2 Corinthians 5:6-8 (TPT) That’s why we’re always full of courage. Even while we’re at home in the body, we’re homesick to be with the Master— for we live by faith, not by what we see with our eyes. We live with a joyful confidence, yet at the same time we take delight in the thought of leaving our bodies behind to be at home with the Lord. 

 

Like I said the Goal is

  1. SLOW IT DOWN 
  2. FOR THE OUTSIDE TO ONLY BE THE BEGINNING 
  3. HIDDEN IN CHRIST!!!!

 

 

Today I want to talk about Magnify!!! (Roots part 3)

Today I want to talk about Magnify!!! (Roots part 3)

What do you magnify and what do you choose to magnify?

I’ve been in this place of roots and there are two sides of magnify..

My story: for me it started with unthreading like God told me, “im unthreading you now you will be bare before me. So I said yes Lord I want this. He did it! It was the hardest thing I ever had to face. You see people only saw the good that came out of It. But you see to gain real deep roots in Jesus he needs to reveal the pain and the care all at the same time.

When we magnify Jesus it doesn’t mean we numb the things he’s exposed but we know our source. So for me I never cared because I didn’t want to get hurt but the truth is I cared so much and it hurt so much when people would walk a way from me. Even being a leader the Negative way that I magnified my roots is I wrote people off. I stopped caring or I didn’t want to care about these lives, but you see Jesus isn’t like this with us. So for me I came to a new love for people and a new heart for them that I’m won to go after them because this the heart of Jesus even when I don’t know them he’s the miracle worker he uses me as a vessel to express the love I have for Him and pour out my love I receive by Jesus to give to them. Only the real Adversary is the one who wants you to have a bad attitude towards the one were after. Sometimes you feel like “God I’m tired of chasing them they don’t want to be here”. Than you hear a soft voice tell you “Then Stop chasing don’t worry I’ll give you a new strategy for them! You See God has already seen the Miracle happen before its manifested on earth so where is your faith? His time is perfect so we as his worshippers his followers don’t choose to put a time limit on God! I know it will happen so we  MAGNIFY THAT and nothing else. 

He shows me that my life being constantly refined in Him is okay for people to see the sorrow because in my sorrow there is victory!  I’m his but even while I’m being exposed its beautiful because my eyes are still on Him so my life is an open book and I’ll guide you to the places maybe you never thought you could go. I’ll take you to the green room I’ll take you to the backroom. That’s Jesus does for me everyday he takes me to the Green room. There are no limits for Him HE loves us so much and he chases after us. HE comes after us like wrecking ball. Wrecking all our plans that we think we had and he’s the ultimate Zig Zag master.

This is why the Scriptures say:

Things never discovered or heard of before,
    things beyond our ability to imagine[n]
    these are the many things God has in store
    for all his lovers.[o]10 But God now unveils these profound realities to us by the Spirit.[p] Yes, he has revealed to us his inmost heart and deepest mysteries through the Holy Spirit, who constantly explores all things.11 After all, who can really see into a person’s heart and know his hidden impulses except for that person’s spirit?So it is with God. His thoughts and secrets are only fully understood by his Spirit, the Spirit of God.  

2 Corinthians 2:9-11 TPT

So God desires to look at those roots reveal them only by the Holy Spirit and get rid of them once and for all. Declare them we need to stay connected to the Vine where we know he’s our source.

Below you will see some pictures of me worshipping God in this is my gratitude for what he’s done for me!!!!

My worship is my life in my worship I pour out my love all over Jesus for he first love me. He loves you right where you’re at. So today he’s after you I choose to see Him magnified! To make his name great and for all of me to be all for Him.. that’s my greatest desire. You don’t understand the grace that he constantly MAGNIFIES daily for us, and as we seek the purity because all we want is his heart he covers us.. come on now these are the roots I’m talking about to get that exchange from old to new it’s called “redemption” it’s taking out beck to the garden when all it was, was you and Him!

Roots. What is the root?

Roots. What is the root?

Devotional 

We are all Roots… maybe we are a root in someone else’s life… are you? What do you think?

We are roots? My sister and I were playing around talking and I asked her a question, “what’s the root to that?”. I believe that with everything there is a root. There are things I know the Holy Spirit wants to reveal to us about the roots in our lives!

But He answered and said, “Every plant which My heavenly Father has not planted will be uprooted. Let them alone. They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind leads the blind, both will fall into a ditch.””

Matthew 15:13-14 NKJV

roots go deeply into his life as you are continually infused with strength, encouraged in every way. For you are established in the faith you have absorbed and enriched by your devotion to him!”

‭‭Colossians‬ ‭2:7‬ ‭TPT‬‬

It’s generational. Maybe you know things about your families past or even present but if we do not cancel things, they can and will linger in our walk with God. In this awesome search, love and passion with Jesus we need to be able to ask for that purity of the Holy Spirit from the the blood of Jesus to wash us clean to walk white as snow from these roots…

So with roots there are good roots and bad roots. Earlier I was speaking of the bad roots but the good root is the last verse I referred to (Joel 1:3). When we get that cleansing power from the Blood of Jesus you receive His roots.

By the Holy Spirit we receive the TRUE VINE OF JESUS! Is there anything better than this love? Is there anything better than this TRUE VINE? My sweet friend Fanny 💃❤️my 👯‍♀️ (in Mosquera, Colombia)  asked that question: “is there anything better than that love?

And the answer is.. no, there isn’t! I have been reading all these testimonies this  past week from my last growth challenge and the question was, “When did you fall in Love with Jesus and how have you changed?”. Every time I would read one it brought to floods of tears to my eyes 😭 because of the power of His love. He has not come to condemn you or to attack you, but in your true heart of repentance He becomes that perfect exchange for your old tattered roots to be made new in Him… in His everything.

Could We just go for that last step? Could we throw our nets out one more time? Could we say, “Yes, Jesus I hear you, I’m coming to you. I follow you not just because I have been convinced but because it’s in me to do so.. I follow my Master I’m a learner and you are my teacher! My roots are in you!”.

Well, during the roots challenge I have been allowing God to show me areas in my life that need to be exposed so that He can get rid of them.

“SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT”

Having a subdued enemy is like a family that adopted a lion cub. This pet was the favorite animal of the family’s child and they believed that they succeeded in domesticating it. The cub was growing quickly and everything seemed to go well. Until one day, he tasted a drop of blood that proved to be just enough for his savage nature to be awakened. This caused the lion to kill the child. Something similar happens with those who have roots of greed, lust, and other sins in their hearts and have not truly uprooted them from their lives.

Excerpt From: Cesar Castellanos. “Declarations of Power for 365 Days of the Year.” iBooks.

Even now as I’m sitting here I’m remembering all these situations in my life that there was a root there yet I was so afraid to share them. My weight was an obvious one for me and my piercings became exposed, but when I began these growth challenges it was more for me. More a way to just show these areas in my life God wanted me to be completely open to Him.

Now with these challenges it has shown me areas in my life I need to strengthen. So I have made conscious efforts to get a hold of what the word says to do about my life and to have total dependency on the Holy Spirit, but I need to be be challenged and changed because I know this is the only way things will be changed in my life.

Have you been able to make conscious efforts in showing what you can allow Jesus to do in you? Are we making everyday our ROOTS go deeper in Him! Make everyday count!!!!
