God has made His abode within our breasts: when He rouses us, the glow of inspiration warms us; this holy rapture springs from the seeds of the divine mind sown in man.

~OVID

May we all rise to new experiences and new life today.

Clearing our throats; bugs in our Bibles.

Thanks Bishop for the words yesterday!

I pray that pain does not linger or last long after the root canal, and does not become too distracting. Wisdom and blessings on all your preparations for Uganda!...as well as to all those who will be traveling with you.

May today bring new experiences to us in creating new worlds by the words from off our lips.

It is well...everything is alright
I am strong!
It is fininshed!

mom's car is broken down this morning...IT IS WELL.

I need some work and a lot more money...IT IS WELL AND I AM STRONG.

Fighting some bad thoughts about myself and things...IT IS WELL, I AM STRONG...IT IS FINISHED.

Bishop,
This is my first time blogging. I figured, better late to the party than not showing up at all. I have been thinking about something since last Wednesday night’s service and after yesterday’s word…can no longer keep it to myself.

You were more or less saying last Wed. how you had no idea how to have that “revelation” word every time you preached. How you wished it was as easy as saying to the Holy Spirit to just give it to you every time. Well, I too pray for the Holy Spirit to reveal whatever I need to hear, what it is that I need to apply to my life, and what I need to know or be challenged with…Just so you know, I am NEVER disappointed. You always “bring it”! So whenever you feel like what you preached wasn’t exactly what you thought it should be…just know that there are those of us who “hear” the Spirit within you and are getting exactly what we have prayed for…the “revelation word” we needed! Yesterday’s word was a perfect example!

I was telling a friend yesterday what an amazing artist you are. Like many artists who paint, you can see a vision of what you want to translate into a painting and then create it beautifully on a canvas. But you also have another gift of a master artist. The ability to see revelation the Holy Spirit wants to say and then using colorful words paint this amazing masterpiece with such eloquence and passion. Some people just don’t get the “art” in front of them. What seems so obvious to some can be just a bunch of jumbled up colors to another who choose not see the whole picture and vision of the artist. I want to thank you for being such an amazing communicator, the Holy Spirit artist within you always speaks a masterpiece with every word. I am one art lover that is standing in front of it seeing every detail, noticing every color, and the defining strokes, and who totally gets the whole picture!

As for the upcoming additions to our CITN family; I couldn’t be more thrilled and excited to embrace those coming from the Cathedral. Something amazing always happens when you pull an anointed and gifted family together, but more so…for those who are questioning…I want to say that I trust you as the head of the house to lead us where the Holy Spirit directs. You have always shown that He goes before you in all things. What an amazing opportunity we have to walk in love and acceptance, but also to move forward in the next phase of CITN! I am with you all the way! It’s gonna be an amazing journey, one I do not want to miss!

Thanks
Sweetspirit

You know it really pays to read an entire passage before reacting. As I read this I got to the point where it says "hope to get Chapter 14 finished today" and in the mindset of all that is being reported on in the news recently, I automatically went to bankruptcy mindset when I heard "Chapter" I don't even know if there is a Chapter 14...

I was ... Read Morelike no no no what in the world is he filing bankruptcy for.

Then I realized that you were talk about MkITN... Very relieved and I will make more of an effort to read all, before reacting.

Hope the root canal goes well, or as well as it can. As I have stated before, I really enjoy reading what you post. Peace to you.

Good message yesterday, glad you are not tired of us pulling things out of you, I tend to do that a lot. I have so many questions I would like to ask you at times but you are answering them without me even having to ask you personally. When I go back and look at my notes it like wow I was wondering about that. Now I don't have to make a dunce out of myself by asking in person.
