Welcome to Transition?

16 06 2017

TransitionToday we begin talking about transition with our post, Welcome to Transition! We will endeavor in this series to simplify transition as we look at the life of Christ who made one of the largest transitions first from God to Man, becoming the atonement for our sin as our Messiah (1Jn 2:2) and then back again from Man to God as our risen lord (Lu 24:34).

 

Let’s define what transition is: passage from one state to another, or to change.

 

Transition as with the birth of a child is both wonderful and painful at the same time. Any family, will tell you that. Whether we begin with Mary or Joseph, the parent of Yeshua, both were given time to transition, both were given time to ponder, to embrace or reject the truth and meaning of the transition. With time, a key element, they both came to embrace it allowing God to prepare them for the coming season of Messiah’s birth!

 

Through the life of our Messiah we see everyone must come to that place of embracing transition and understanding the struggle with feelings is an important part of building kingdom authority to walk successfully in the new season which transition ushers in!

 

Join me next time as we look at Mary in the post, transition believe it or not part 1!

 





Long Time No See!

8 06 2017

moveIt is hard to believe it has been 5 months since my last post! There was a time when doing two posts a week was the norm. For my long time readers, I am still here.

 

Since 2013, my priorities have changed quite a bit and with the changes my time has become a precious thing. CJM has gone from no office, using my pastor’s office, to now having over 1200 feet of office space which includes a conference room for holding classes. To that in the last 4 months we have added an office in Salem at Salem House of Prayer on Wednesdays! Little did I know things were going to blossom and grow the way they have!

 

I am writing this blog to renew my commitment to posting once a week. This first post is just one to catch up and say, surprise I am back!

 

Join me next week when  I will be writing my 250 words on Transition, Believe or Not!

In Yeshua,

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?

1 04 2016

12755593_sToday we begin a new blog 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.

Who is blind but my servant, and deaf like the messenger I send? Who is blind like the one in covenant with me, blind like the servant of the LORD?  You have seen many things, but you pay no attention; your ears are open, but you do not listen.”

Isa 42:19 – 20

In this passage the Lord is speaking to His people Israel who were supposed to be in a committed relationship with Him and willing to follow His plans in their lives, but clearly if you read on, they weren’t as committed to Him and He was to them.

Like Israel, you and I can take our relationship with the Lord and His plans us for granted. We can read our bible, go to church and yes even pray as if they were all part of a grand Christian check list, instead of that place where God releases His plans and strategies.  This is a new day and a new season. Do you hear the Lord calling you into a greater level of relationship? Are you willing to be fed and equipped with new manna you will need to enter new territories where you have never been before?

Join me next time as we explore how we as His servants can become deaf.

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

Shining While We Wait!

22 01 2016

2016 calendarWe began this series with a prophetic word for 2016 and the truth that God intends to work in and through each of us in 2016, so the light of the Lord to shine! Today we explore what it means to shine while you wait!

 

“Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.” Waiting is the hardest part, but it is well worth it.

Psalms 27:14

 

These words of Psalms 27, go deep within us as we struggle to wait for our assignments in 2016 to begin. For some it is because of illness, like a good friend I know, things aren’t going well for her. She has been ill and it has affected her life in many ways. Yet she is struggling to be strong, she is struggling to wait for the Lord to break through, she knows first hand that waiting is the hardest part, maybe you do too.

 

I am waiting for the birth of a grandchild, there is nothing I can do, I pray, I wait, I support and I love. Those are the same things I do as I walk with my friend. Whether it is looking from the outside as with my grandchild or if you are the one who is in the midst of the struggle like my friend, things are happening as you wait, you are becoming stronger, your will to wait for something to happen is where your faith shines through and your will becomes solid as a rock.

Christ in the Garden of Gethsemene, Heinrich Hofmann, 1890

Christ in the Garden of Gethsemene, Heinrich Hofmann, 1890

I have a beautiful picture of Yeshua kneeling on a rock in the garden of Gethsemane where he sweated blood and his disciples fell asleep three times. This picture always comforts me because it reminds me of the sacredness of our struggle to wait and how even in that moment his faith shined brightly for us to see.

 

Know waiting is an important part of life, and as scripture tells us, it is well worth it!

 

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

Finishing Well

10 07 2015

mountain and valley1We are in a series called maturity in our ever shifting atmosphere.  Last time we explored God-given maturity and beginning well. Today we are looking finishing well.

When I think of finishing well these words, he who began a good work in you… from Philippians 1 come to mind. Let’s look at the whole verse.

“In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”

Php 1:4-6

Paul is speaking of those people who partnered with him in the spreading of the gospel. He is confident that God who began a good work in them, to follow Christ, will carry them through to the very last day of their lives.

The key to finishing well is relying on God. Hebrews 12:2 tells us “fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of faith”. It is in keeping your eyes focused on God and looking to at Jesus’ life as our model we learn how to finish well.

Two years ago, God gave a vision of an Oregon Tabernacle Tent and how 10 people would sew into this work and finance thetabernacle tent to buy purchase of this tent. Some have prayed into this vision, others have given to its purchase and this week CJM purchased the 20×20 tent. This phase of the journey is finishing well, having come through the believing for its purchase. It took keeping our eyes focused on God, his plans and purposes to see it come into reality. It seems a long time coming, yet as CJM purchased the tent I thought, “really God are we ready to move forward?” So we are off to another beginning and I know God will bring the Oregon Tabernacle Tent mission to completion as we keep our eyes fixed and focused on him!

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
