This is a repost of a picture I took on the Central Coast of California right after the New Year. Someone may need this today... Rise Above the negativity and
circumstance..It may take an act of faith if your feelings are not lining up.. get out in nature and look up today..
All my love, Ann
TIME TO GET OVER OURSELVES!
I firmly believe every saint and Christian leader needs people in their life who aren’t impressed with their anointing or gifting and can look them straight in the face and challenge their character. Many these days are shouting, “Go where your honored and celebrated” but Jesus Christ by His own example is saying, “You need to go where you are humbled!" May we all take up our cross just like Jesus and follow Him down the narrow road of humility and rejection. -Jeremiah Johnson
REMEMBER WHAT GOD DID THEN... BUT LOOK FORWARD FOR WHAT HE’S GOING TO DO •
Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me. •
Remember what you’ve been through, places that you’ve gone, places that you lived, people and places where you previously worked at. Remember these things and thank God for them.
But look forward to where He’s going to take you!
I’ll never forget these condos we lived in back in Webster, TX. I’ll never forget that season of my life! I’m so grateful for the ministry position I had, the church I was a part of, and the relationships I built. Thank You God! But, I can’t remain there. God has more for me and for you! •
Prayer: Father, thank You for what You’ve done in my life! I praise You with everything that’s in me! I know You have more and You’re not done with me. I say YES to Your plans and future! In Jesus name, amen.

Some aspire to be forgettable or invisible, in ministry. I’ve pondered this ideology, and while I understand the motive behind, it is pure, I have come to the conclusion that I, humbly, disagree.
We are created in the very image of God, a magnificent creation, full of splendor. We are the sons and daughters of God, created for His glory.
We don’t need to remain hidden so that He can shine. He can’t help but shine. It doesn’t bring our Father glory for us to become invisible, so that He may be seen.
Quite the opposite is true, I believe. As we become lay down lovers, secure in our identity, in Christ, it is our heart condition that honors or dishonors our Father, not how visible or invisible we are to others.
For, each season brings with it a time of being hidden or a time of being seen.
If God needs us to be seen, it will do no one any good for us to hide away, trying to be invisible.
When David was called to be a shepherd boy, in the field, he was hidden for a season. When it was time, for him, to wear a crown that season ended.
King David was never meant to be forgotten. It pleased God to make his name known as a giant slaying, crown wearing, man of valor that His only son became a descendant of.
Whether in the field or in the palace, it is the position of our hearts that matters most.
Let us aspire to possess humble hearts, not craving the praise of men, but the approval of our Father.
Then when we shine, before men, we will not try to revel in the glory that belongs to God alone, but instead we will revel in the endless depths of adoration our Father has for us.
You don’t have to wait on a word from someone else. My yes and amen is extended to you every season, every morning, every noon, and every night.
All you have to do is, hold out your hands and receive what I’ve determined to give you. Can’t nothing and nobody take what is yours.
See, I predestined for you to walk ,upright, in the land of the living, blessed and highly favored.
So, don’t spend another minute second guessing or doubting what it is I have for you.
It’s a glorious day, right now. It’s a day of hope, right now. It’s a day I make beauty from all your ashes.
I’ve scattered your enemies. They have lost their hold on you. You’re free, finally free.
Now, look where I will take you. We will do great things, my child. Just keep your eyes on Me. Keep your hope, your faith, and your trust in Me. I’ll never, ever disappoint you.
