Look for...declare...believe...


There's been a message of clarity that's been spoken into my spirit...
Be OFFENSIVE!
What does that mean?  For me, at this moment it means that I am to LOOK for joy in the middle of sorrow...it means to declare VICTORY in the middle of battle .... it means to believe that the promise of God's provision is a promise HE IS KEEPING.

Look for it - declare it - believe it!

Have you seen the waterfall at Crater Lake????  There's a waterfall at CRATER LAKE!  Like the lake isn't reason enough to make the trip!  3 or 4 years ago I asked Dennis if we could try to see every waterfall in Oregon.  The challenges with my parents have meant that I needed to stay close to home, so no big waterfall adventures.  But, look what the Lord did for us.  We got to drive around Crater Lake one day last week, and there it was....a WATERFALL!  (Big smile)




Heidi just sent this picture of Jack 'interviewing' some people (he didn't know) with his play microphone!  (Another big smile!)


LOOKING for it....the moments, the people, the faithfulness of God that brings joy...
DECLARE it....VICTORY...
BELIEVE IT.... provision and promise of God

The LORD is my Rock, my Fortress, and my Savior;
my God is my Rock, in whom I find protection.
He is my Shield, the power that saves me, 
and my place of safety.
I called on the LORD, who is worthy of praise,
and He saved me from my enemies.
Psalm 18:2-3

I do not trust in my bow, my  sword does not bring me victory; but You give us victory over our enemies, you put our adversaries to shame.  In God we make our boast all day long and we will praise your name forever.
Psalm 44:6-8

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him,
so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Romans 15:13
