Amen, Carol(Griff2734)! I love your sig. line and Life motto: JESUS FIRST! Amen and Amen! I remember when going through my own cancer journey....not knowing at the outset what my journey would look like or how long I would remain on earth.....and the thought came: either way, I WIN! Whether I remain - it will be to serve the Lord, to love others, and advance His kingdom....to lift Jesus up in the midst of my journey - whatever that be.......if I die, I will go to be with the Lord! I honestly could say, there was part of me that would LOVE to go be with my Savior...but He had a different path....He chose to heal me, which is for other's wellfare and good, as I have been given more time on earth to advance His gospel through His Spirit.....
Yes, JESUS FIRST in everything. He is our SOLE reason for LIFE, our sole SOURCE for life and living. He gives LIFE it's sweetness, for HE IS OUR LIFE.
Griff, I pray for your complete healing.....for I see that you have the power and authority in your voice of our MASTER of Love. May you have long life and see many days....that your voice can proclaim like a clarion call for all to come to JESUS!
God continue to bless and flow through you MIGHTILY. In Jesus name.

Hi Sue I am rejoicing with you right now the Lord has taught me its all about him its Jesus First all day every day he is my everything. He has chosen all of us for his cause what did he tells us before he went to be with the Father...

Matthew 28:19
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

This is what we are all called to do to lift HIGH THE NAME OF JESUS!! to let everyone know that he is the only way to heaven...The Lord has blessed me so much during this time of what could have been a dark time for me, being diagnosed with cancer I could have let the enemy come in and feel sorry for myself but JESUS FIRST..my life is his he knows exactly what is going on and my main reason for the breath I breathe is to lift his name this is why I was chosen, why you were chosen.

There are so many people out there who dont know who Jesus is lets tell them if people havent heard lets tell them that Jesus is God lets tell them that Jesus lived without sin lets tell them that Jesus died in their place for their sin, lets tell them that Jesus rose to conqueor satan sin and death hell and the wrath of God. Lets tell them that he is the way the truth and the life lets tell them THAT THERE IS NO SALVATION APART FROM HIM!!!!!

Acts 4:12

"Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.Ē

This is why you were chosen.....LETS TELL THEM ABOUT JESUS!!!!!


Jesus first

Yes. That very same conviction has come to me in recent days. We must be about the King's business!!! The evil one fills us with distractions....to keep us from our calling as Intercessors....as "Kings and Priests unto our God."
I confess I get concerned over "me....my work....this or that going on in "my" life...while the world is going to hell.
Forgive, sweet Lord. I choose this day and this day forward to BE ABOUT MY FATHER'S BUSINESS!!!! I WILL step into my role as INTERCESSOR as never before. I will wrestle in prayer over friends, family, and the lost....
there would be no greater regret when our Lord finally comes to take us home, than to see how much time we WASTED on temporal things that pass away......may it not be so! Instead, may we be faithful to be about the Father's business, so that when He returns, we can enter into the JOY of our Master as we hear His "WELL DONE, GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT."

LORD, help us be aware of the times....and to "number our days" aright.
AMEN. MAY IT BE SO, IN JESUS NAME.
Sue

Hello everyone love all your replies you all teach me so much and I just wanted to thank you all for your faithfulness to this team and to our Lord Jesus. Its overwhelming to me sometimes when I think the Jesus has chosen me. I think WOW!!! the creator of the universe chose ME, he actually wants to have a relationship with ME, he really wants to get to know ME!! That is just mind boggling to me he chose us for a reason so I have a few questions for all of you..

What is it going to take?

In my study of the word and in my prayer time I couldnít help but feel a deep desperation and fear, yes fear for my brothers and my sisters in the Lord, for my family and for my friends who donít know the Lord. Why? I asked the Lord why am I feeling this way and I believe this is what the Lord said to me. Time is getting near and my children and the lost still are not taking me and my word seriously. My children are not ready even though my signs are all around them I see them living for this world and trying to live for me and you cannot have both. Its either me or this world and they are choosing the world over me. I said Lord what is it that you would have me do? He simply said pray, pray like you never have stay in my word and be in communication with me every single day for them. Continue to witness watch and pray for my coming.

Does it matter to you? Does it matter to you at all that Gods heart desire is for all of us to be with him? Why donít we want that? Why donít we want to spend time with God its should be our first priority every single day.

Family of God we donít weep anymore for the lost or for our family and friends, we donít go to God in prayer anymore like we are suppose to and weep for them. Yes we are concerned but when was the last time you were in ANGUISH over them. Where it just took you to your knees and you cried out to the Lord for them?

The devil doesnít want us to labor in prayer anymore he wants to take the fight out of us and we are letting him. We sit and watch television and our family and friends are going to HELL!! We are so busy doing so many other things but when was the last time you wept over your family, your friends, the lost?

What is it going to take for us to wake up and see that this is not a game this is about yours, mine and their eternity? People its getting late and its getting serious donít tell me your concerned when your spending hours in front of the t.v. and the internet. This world cannot give you joy only the Lord can give you joy, joy unspeakable donít you want that for yourselves and for your family and friends?

What is it going to take for you to see this is the time, time to be on our knees in ANGUISH fighting against Satan who wants to take you and your family and friends to hell with him? We need to start taking God seriously we have become too passive. When was the last time you fasted and prayed for them?

What is it going to take? What else does Jesus have to do? How many times has he come knocking at your door and you have been too busy to answer it?

What is it going to take Christian for you to ANGUISH over your loved ones and the lost in prayer and seek God for them? What is it going to take?

Jesus first

Griff and Shelly and Missy, this is exactly what I am doing right at this specific time.

I am taking a step back in my life from all things and examining my faith and my walk to test the spirits and to make sure that I am truly being transformed according to LoveHimself and to test and magnify His grace and love in my life and how He is transforming me and re making me.

I have to make sure I am in His timing and His will of love and obedience and make sure I am being true to myself and to Him.

I have more thoughts about what you said Griff, and they came to me as I replied to your blog, so I will share a portion of what i wrote on your blog:


Once again your words have blessed us. As you wrote, in the bible it said,"Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves." I believe this means you stand in your faith. Your faith surrounds you, it guides you, it molds you. Your actions make you,and in the end your are Christ's child, and in the end He claims you as HIs own!

It is so important to examine our thoughts, words, and actions. If we truly do this, and yearn to become closer to God, and improve ourselves through purification. I believe at some point we want to die to our flesh. We want to change our ways. This is a natural process, because God can not be made full within us if we are full of sinful ways, thoughts, and actions. We are made to grow closer to God. We can not change without examining ourselves.

Yes, Missy I know this feeling very well. For years as I was growing up God repeatedly told me things about myself. I told myself i was wrong. I told myself i heard Him wrong,. I misunderstood. I humbly share the things were so mightily I told myself, HOW could they be true, I am just a little kid, I am no one. But God was persistent, and repeated the same thing over and over. In my early twenties I finally accepted the whole thing God had been telling me. You see, to my head what God was telling me was impossible. When I came to accept the truth of God's words, I remember asking Him, how could this be, you know God this doesn't make sense. He told me, "It doesn't matter if it makes sense, it only matters that you believe." When I reached my 30's a huge spiritual growth had occurred. Now, I am almost 43 and my life has taken on a course which is unbelievable at times. God wants me to do so much and i want to do it all. I don't have the whole story, not do I want it, but my heart is excited, I am on fire for God!

Griff, it was so good to talk to you on the phone. My spirit has missed you voice, your
laugh, your spirit which is so full of the Holy Spirit. Your friendship has deeply filled my life.

I don't mean to leave anyone out in my reply. What everyone has shared just has touched my heart so much, how can my words begin to express it? This team, I love you all. Thank you for the blessings each of you bring. How we feed one another. Thank you dear team members for what each of you have written and shared!

I praise God for shining upon this team. For it is His. Missy and I give it to Him, as we pray for guidance from Him. I just thank you God!!!

Dear God, please continue to help each person on this team. Dear God thank you for bringing each person to this team.

God ministered to my heart with this exact message this week:

John 15:16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruitófruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.

Now I don't know about you, but if I were going to pick someone to appoint, someone to bear a bountiful harvest in this life, someone who would be given the authority, privilege, and responsibility of asking things of Almighty God, I don't think it would have been ME. If my son were perfect and was the King of all kings and I were going to choose a bride for him... I definitely don't think it would be ME. But choose me God did. Wow. Doesn't that just blow your mind?!!

Shelly that is beautiful what you shared. I at times need to remember this;

The Lord said, ďI have loved you.Ē Malachi 1:2

Father, your love never ceases. Never.
Though we spurn you, ignore you, disobey you, you will not change. Our evil cannot diminish your love. Our goodness cannot increase it. Our faith does not earn it anymore than our stupidity jeopardizes it. You donít love us less if we fail. You donít love us more if we succeed.
Your love never ceases. Your love we do not earn.
I know He smiles at us with such love, even when we are so serious about what we think He may see in us.
He knows your loving heart and He loves you and me inspite of our selves:-)

Love and Hugs,
~Erin




Walk through your journey with a loving open heart and as well mind. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

I just recently joined this team...and wow....what a beautiful team to be a part of...such honesty...such transparency....such fervor and passion for our Lord. The team name bears the humility that our Lord loves....our dependency on Him.

Glittergirl and GRIFF2734....your hearts are like that broken alabaster jar....yielding such a sweet fragrance, and the intoxicating aroma of Christ......your hearts are beautiful....your love for Him and desire to glorify Him surely must melt our Savior's heart.

Keep shining girls....I join with you in pursuit of our King and the Lover of our souls....may our very lives be a fragrant offering, and lived only in and through our union with His precious Holy Spirit.
Sue

Philippians 1:21
For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.

Ive read this scripture many times but when my eyes landed on it again I gave it alot more thought. With this phrase, Paul is saying "I can't speak for you but I can speak for myself." This is similar to our common expression today "As far as I am concerned" Paul was faced with the prospect of death at the hands of the Roman government. It in those "dying times" that one often thinks about the things that are the most important. It was not difficult for Paul to explain what was of utmost importance to him. What makes your life worth living? your family? your work? your reputation? etc

Paulís life, the sum total of his reason for existence. All of Paulís activities and interests, his entire existence was within the sphere of Christ, for indeed, "from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen." (Romans 11:36)

Paul's words mean more than most men think; they imply that the aim and end of his life was Christ, his life itself was Jesus. In the words of an ancient saint, he did eat, and drink, and sleep eternal life. Jesus was his very breath, the soul of his soul, the heart of his heart, the life of his life.

Can you say, as a professing Christian, that you live up to this idea? Can you honestly say that for you to live is Christ? Your business-are you doing it for Christ? Is it not done for self-and for family advantage?

As I pondered this scripture and asked myself these questions I took the time to examine myself for Paul asks us to do this daily.

2 Corinthians 13:5-7
Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you unless, of course, you fail the test? 6 And I trust that you will discover that we have not failed the test.

Then I prayed:

Lord, accept me; Im here to present myself, praying to live only in Thee and to Thee. Let me be as the bullock which stands between the plough and the altar, to work or to be sacrificed; and let my motto be, "Ready for either."

As I go through this journey of stage 3 cancer I cant help but to think of my lifes end and how ready am I to meet the Lord. Examining all that I do and the whys and the hows and if my life does stand up to my motto of JESUS FIRST. Its in this self-examination that I find myself not caring about the things of this world like I used to. It is all about Jesus everything we do, everywhere we go the reasons we do what we do and act like we do. It must be all about him for we were born to worship and serve him and thats it..I can now understand how and why Paul felt the way he did.

Paul knew that death is not a defeat to the Christian but is merely a graduation to glory, a "net gain" in accounting terms. When a Christian dies, he (or she) really begins to live to the full, for he passes into the perfect, eternal, glorious union with Christ unhindered by the world, the flesh and the devil.

So now I am excited more than ever I find myself saying "Oh Lord I cant wait to be with YOU!!"When a Christian dies, he has just begun to live..I understand what Paul is saying and how he felt I now raise my hands in praise to the lover of my Soul Oh my Jesus how great you are how you have changed my life.

Thank you for opening my blind eyes and my deaf ears to see and hear your beauty to know that you bless me daily to know that you love me with an everlasting love and to know my eternity is with you how I cant wait for that day to finally see you face to face help me Lord to live the rest of my life only for you to die to self to see and live only for you..Your will not mine until I see you Lord I give you and surrender to you my life I am yours use me to the advancement of your Kingdom I am ready.

Philippians 1:21
For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.

I feel your love Bobbie. Really, I am doing better now. I know He sees me as you have written. But, there are times I fail to be my best. I know during those times he is still loving me. But, I want this team to see all of me, and what I go through. The only way I can do this is by writing it out to you.

Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the thoughts that I have toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace, not of evil, to give you a future & hope.

He Has Chosen Me

He has chosen me
I will take the stand
He has chosen me
I will do His plan
He has chosen me
I will live it out to the end
He has chosen me
I will take HIs hand

~ Glittergirl

Obtaining to become my best, it helps me to remember God has a plan for my life. It is my desire to fulfill all the things God wants me to do. It is the devil's plan to keep me distracted from the result of pain, attractions, offense, and disobedience. I thank God for guiding me, protecting me, and renewing me. Dear God I never want to fail you. I want to keep my thoughts, words, and actions pleasing to you. Help me dear Lord to serve you & to always be your representative, your dependable disciple.
