Transition: Believe it or NOT part 1 – Mary

22 06 2017

Welcome to our topic Transition! Today we will look at the transition of Mary, the mother of Jesus recorded in Luke 1:26 – 38, as she receiving the news of the coming savior.

First, the angel of the Lord signals the beginning of Mary’s transition as she hears the words, “Greeting you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.” It is recorded that she was greatly or deeply troubled, other translations used the word disturbed. Transition as it begins is often alarming and can deeply trouble or disturb us. This is normal reaction and we need to remember to respond rather than to react.

Second the angel encouraged her, “not to be afraid and that she had found favor with God”. Often when facing transition, we like Mary, look at it as a bad thing and we become afraid. Encouragement as we face the idea of transition helps use all!

Third, we see Mary questioning God choice; does he really know what HE is doing? Transition causes us to question what God is up to, even if like Mary who knew the scriptures, we know God is going to do something. Our question still remains, but are we really who God wants to use?

Final we see the angel sharing the news about her relative Elizabeth who was also pregnant. Mary found the comfort to come into agreement with God’s plans and later direction in how to navigate the pregnancy, going to her relative’s home.

Remember as God begins a new thing in your life, HE will bring you guidance and encouragement!

Blessings & Complete Joy!

Entering the New Season – part 3 Don’t Dwell in the Past

19 01 2017

2017Last time we looked at the key of Forgetting in our series of how to enter the new season, today we look at the second key. Dwelling and where we are to dwell as we continue in Isaiah 43.

 

“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.

See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?

I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”

Isaiah 43:18-19

 

Let us define the word dwell:

  • Live in or at a specified place.
  • Think, speak, or write at length about (a particular subject, especially one that is a source of unhappiness, anxiety, or dissatisfaction).

 

Once we forget the former things, we have to stop living there. We have to come out of the past. 2 Cor 5:17 needs to be ever before us in 2017, for those who accept Yeshua as Messiah are dwellinga new creation, the old has gone and the new is here! So you and I must resist our internal voice of the past which brings condemnation, that voice of mom, dad or other authority figure. There is a spark of truth which still hurts. That isn’t the devil. It is the past. You must take authority over the pain and hurt of the past, deal with the pain when God calls you to, and forget the former things walking completely with every ounce of your body, soul and spirit into the new thing!

 

I pray for each of you, I see the Lord blessing you, I see the Lord’s grace being poured out upon your past, that in that place of grace the peace of God which passes all understanding will guard your heart and mind in Yeshua Messiah as you walk into the new things which await you in 2017!

Join me next time as we look at the new thing God is doing in your life!

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

Surprise – Long Time NO See!

17 11 2016

changeFor some of you who have been with me for a while you have asked, have I quit blogging. I never quit, rather I was undergoing some changes and writing took an unexpected turn.

 

I lost a close friend in May 2016 who died unexpectedly from pneumonia. She was a key part of Complete Joy Ministries. When she died everything in the ministry fell upon my shoulders. It was a tough transition and I am glad to say our ministry is coming through to the other side. I am stronger, I am more committed to the work of the ministry to equip the saints of Yeshua to do the works of service Yahweh has prepared them to do.

 

As I come back to blogging I am not picking up where I left off with the Kingdom of Heaven and righteousness but speaking instead to where we are today in James 1:13. We are talking about change, temptation and the Kingdom of Heaven! We have a new president and we are in a new season. Here in the USA we are tempted to walk into the downward spiral of a country who walked much like I did into unexpected change.

 

James 1:13 No one being tempted should say, “I am being tempted by God.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, and God himself tempts no one. 14 Rather, each person is being tempted whenever he is being dragged off and enticed by the bait of his own desire. 15 Then, having conceived, the desire gives birth to sin; and when sin is fully grown, it gives birth to death. 16 Don’t delude yourselves, my dear brothers.

 

We are often tempted to do one thing or another. Join me next time when we take up the conversation on change, temptation and the Kingdom of Heaven!

 

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

How Committed Are You? Part 3

10 06 2016

12755593_sWe are in the series, How committed are you? In this new season, we all must assess how committed we are to our God and following His plans for our lives even when to follow means pain, struggle and loss. Today we are looking at the blindness of God’s servants.

Saul got up from the ground, but when he opened his eyes he could see nothing.

So they led him by the hand into Damascus.

For three days he was blind, and did not eat or drink anything.

Act 9:8 -9

I hope you are familiar with this story of Paul in the book of Acts and his conversion to Christ.  Each of us walk in blindness in an area until like Saul until we receive revelational knowledge from God. For Saul this revelational knowledge change himzagart701 - landscape from Saul to Paul and ignited his great knowledge of scripture, pointing the world both Jew and gentile to Yeshua and forever changing his ministry!

Like Saul (before the revelational knowledge) we can walk in spiritual blindness until the revelational knowledge comes. What are you waiting for? Has God touched your life and you know you have to wait? Allow another, called by God to speak into and minister to you as Paul did. Wait, Fast, Pray and seek God, pressing into all that He is calling you into so that when the revelational knowledge comes you will see clearly and begin your new work with boldness!

Join me next time!

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

Maturity in the Shifting Atmosphere

24 04 2015

11087581_sOver the late month as I seen the spiritual shift in the atmosphere while watching people who need to be spiritual mature, struggle. In this post we will begin a series on maturity, exploring how the shifts in the atmosphere affect people through the life of Moses.

From the moment of Moses conception the atmosphere on Earth began to change, as God’s plans of redemption began to come forth. The stage is set when baby Moses is set adrift on the Nile, in hopes to save his life. Years later another shift in the atmosphere took place, let’s look at it more closely.

Moses now a man & knowing the truth of his birth, he saw the injustice put upon his people and took measures into his own hands, Exodus 2. This choice revealed the shift the atmosphere as Moses struggled to agree with God’s plan and purpose for his life. In the spirit as the atmosphere changes we are always tempted to do things from our own strength, as Moses did. It take a greater level of maturity to be able to follow God’s leading and not strike out on our own.

So drastic was this change in the atmosphere that Moses was driven out into the desert. Man drove him out into the desert but it was God’s will for in going out from everyone and everything he knew, Moses began to build a relationship with his God, learning how to walk in obedience, maturity, and authority.

Join me for our next post shifting in obedience!

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

Standing Firm in Transition

6 03 2015

In this 20150305_115325season, are you struggling to stand as things are whirling around you and people who have been walking at your side suddenly have other things pulling them away? We must stand firm as everyone is in transition.

Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

1Co 15:58

It is easy to look at our suite and see CJM is in transition; from scriptures waiting to be put on the wall, to the need for a small end table in the CJM office. God knows our needs and we must stand firm and let nothing side track us from giving ourselves fully to the work of the Lord!

Recently I struggled to do just that, as I labored to put the Lord’s Prayer on the textured wall of the prayer room. DiligentlyMatthew scripture for three hours lifting masking tape from one word at a time. At one point I watched as the first two letters of the word temptation lifted again and again off the wall. They will forever be just a little bit off, reminding us temptation is there to throw us off if we aren’t careful?

I stayed with it, going up and down the ladder as I processed not only the job before me but the many changes since moving to our new location. When I finally finished I was praising God! We must take this scripture in 1 Corinthians to heart and remember our labor in the Lord is not in vain.

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

Life after Transition

17 11 2012

Today we finish our series on transition as we look once again at Jesus the man, as he interacted with his disciples after his resurrection in John chapter 20.

After Jesus had greeted them again, he said, “I am sending you, just as the Father has sent me.” Then he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.

 Joh 20:21-22

After Jesus died, the disciples did not know what the scriptures said about Jesus being raised to life. Often in transition, we are just as shocked as his disciples were about seeing Jesus. We think transition is the end of a relationship when in reality it can be the beginning of an even deeper one, as with disciples receiving the Holy Spirit.

In our lives it is tough to walk with someone when they are leaving, whether it is leaving a job, a marriage or a church. We must work through our feelings, as with Thomas who had to see his hands, or Peter who needed to be cleansed of his shame. We must understand God intends for transitions to bring greater blessings so we must choose to stay in relationship during and after transition.

Jesus had to choose to come back and interact with his disciples, which he did with joy and the disciples had to choose to recognize and accept his presences in their lives after the transition had happened for the blessing to be secure!

May you always receive God’s blessings as you walk through transition!

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie
