The Journey of Obedience – Journal Entry #2 (March, 2018)

I don’t know about you, but when things don’t go as I plan, I normally want to change the plan (which is a NATURAL thing to do??).  However, when we’re in the midst of a SPIRITUAL Journey, the rules change!  The Lord will ask us to do things that are a tad uncomfortable (like WAITING until He tells us to take the next step!).  He takes us out of the realm of reasoning and into the spiritual realm of FAITH.  Contrary to popular belief, when we operate in faith, it does not mean that there’s the absence of doubt.  I’m now two months into this new journey and I’m struggling!

And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed and therefore I spoke,” we also believe and therefore speak, …  II Corinthians 4:13 NKJV

So, I ENCOURAGED myself with this Facebook Inspiration post…

EVERY DAY….. Your journey will only get Better!!

49560068 - live your best life written on desert road

… knowing that He who raised up the Lord Jesus will also raise us up with Jesus, and will present us with you.    II Corinthians 4:14 NKJV

Resurrection power come forth, as we speak to all the lifeless things in our lives!

Then, as the month draws to a close, this Facebook memory pops up!!!

DO YOU?????

 

NEXT JOURNAL ENTRIES (April, 2018)

Healing Virtue

For the past few weeks, I had been struggling to write a post.  So I just started jotting down titles and “Healing Virtue” was one of them.  Now the really hard part was to find the words to go with the title.  Then I was thinking about the people that God has allowed to cross my path, since I started Order Your Steps.  I’ve met cancer survivors, transplant survivors, persons with various challenges… and since God has ordered my steps, I know that it has not been by accident, nor a coincidence!   Order Your Steps is not just a ministry of organizing & order, but also one of healing (physical & spiritual).

I did a Google search on the word “virtue” and found this:  The word “virtue” is translated from the Greek word “dynamin”, meaning “the power of the Spirit”. This power of the Spirit, or healing virtue, is invested in every believer.**

Healing is not just from physical illness, but spiritual also.  Many of us face many challenges; stress, frustration, anxiety, fatigue, disappointment, etc. etc. etc. caused by family, friends, co-workers, managers, supervisors… you get the idea!!!!  Some of us are married, single, with children and without children.  We are just caught up in the hustle and bustle of life.  The chaos has become our norm.  Some of us are unemployed, underemployed & others are extremely overworked.  Many are at the very top of the corporate ladder and thrive on the fast pace… but I would like to propose that ALL of us should consider a Spiritual De-cluttering.  This clutter and disorder is hindering our ability to reach higher levels, to achieve our full potential and operate with the spirit of excellence that we expect of ourselves and that God expects of us.  Yet, we won’t make time to simply Breathe, Enjoy Life and Live It to Its Fullest!  

If the weather will cooperate in the DMV(like today!), it will actually feel like Spring and we will officially begin our season of refreshing & new birth.  As we start spring cleaning and organizing of our physical space, let’s take the time to cleanse our inner space, spiritually de-clutter and walk in our Divine Order.

Let the Healing Virtue of Christ flow through your life!**

Where is your Clutter?

clutter2150x100There seemed to be a fair amount of interest in The Psychology of Clutter.  Thanks to all of you that took time to comment!   It is interesting to look at a scientific perspective on the effect that clutter has on our mind, our behavior and our overall disposition.  From a spiritual perspective, I have shared more than once how I believe that clutter / disorder has an affect on many aspects of our lives. Order Your Steps has been in existence for almost two (2) years.  It has been a blessing to have a steady stream of clients, although customers have come and gone. We have looked briefly at those individuals that try a professional organizer (PO) and decides not to stick with it, but there are others that have not made the call…

 Are YOU one of them?

If you were to call in a PO for help,
