God's Way

We are about to start up this years In Search of Purpose En Route to Destiny classes in August. So since me and 3 other ladies are the 2008 alumni we will be group leaders this year.

Yesterday we had another meeting with some women who are interested in the class. Well as we were trying to get the DVD player to work we had picture but no sound. Of course the first thing we did was to rebuke the enemy. We went into a powerful Praise and Worship and Prayer. The audio was still not working. So one of our group leaders had a portable DVD player same thing happened no audio.

We then just starting talking about the class all of the alumni gave testimony as to how the class has changed our lives. We talked for hours,we completely forgot about the audio not working.

The Lord spoke to my Heart and said,you don't need audio everything that was going to be spoken from that DVD you all have given testimony of it.

So not all the time should we be so quick to give the enemy gratification when things don't go as we planned.

God has a way of making things happen the way he wants a certain thing to play out.

I encourage you all to look into the Polished Arrows International "In Search Of Purpose En Route To Destiny". This is a 14 week appointment with God. It is definitely a life changing experience.

If any of you would like more information just send me an email and I will get the information out to you.

Standing in God's Will

Today my Christian Sistah's I have declared and decreed that I Stephanie wearer of the Crown is standing in His Will. My journey that God has prepared for me is not a easy one,but I know that through His Grace and Mercy I will succeed.

I won't give up or give in
I will keep on til the end
I will keep steadfast unmovable
Always abounding in you Lord
I am standing in Your Will

I so much enjoy this song and especially today. For some reason this morning I felt like I have just been sitting idol on what God has called me to do. Then I heard this song,I listen to this song everyday,but today God allowed it to touch down deep in my soul. So this is my Will today to just Stand in His Will.

So Thankful

Today and everyday I am thankful to my Heavenly Father,but today is a special day for me. On this day May 27th is the day that I was born into this world I have been in existence for 49 years now.

Today as I arose out of my bed I gave thanks to God and as I meditated with him I was taken on a journey of my life. Oh our Heavenly Father is so merciful that he saved me from my own destruction. As I sit today in deep meditation with him just basking in His Glory. The song There Is None Like You echoes in my spirit. Now I have heard this song sang so many ways but I like it when it is sung slow. I truly like this version of the song,especially the pictures that are shown while the song is being sung.

There is truly no one like him,that even when we have turned our backs on him he is still right there never leaving our sides. Sometimes we get off the path that he laid out for us before we are born,but waits so patiently for us to get on the right path. How can anyone not want to serve such an awesome God.

So now I am proud to say that this is the year that I Stephanie Wearer of the Crown is on the battlefield for my Lord and Saviour. No turning back only moving forward to my great reward which is to have Eternal Life with my Heavenly Father.

Old Time Religion

Today I attended The Sister In Strength Bible Study. This is a bible study that we have every 3rd Saturday of the month. This month it was held on the 4Th Saturday because of plans other women had. Anyway as we were in our circle having intercessory prayer,God put the song In Times Like These in my spirit. As I sang the song all the other women joined in. God has placed these old hymns in my spirit for a reason.

He has told me that it is time that the Churches go back to conducting Church the way it was meant to be done. We have become some commercial wise in how we conduct Church.

I had sometime when I returned home to think back as far as I could remember when I would visit my Grandmother in Claremore,Oklahoma. Now my Grandmother was a Baptist,I can remember watching the Deacons sitting in front of the pulpit and singing without any music. I can remember looking at them and wondering are they sick or something,cause it just sounded like they were moaning.

If you take the time to think back then some 40 or so years,the world was nothing like it is now. Why? cause back then the Christians knew who God was,and they lived their lives just as the Bible said. There was no deviating any word that God had spoken. People back then feared God.

So ladies it is time we put that Old Time Religion back into our churches. There is nothing wrong with the new gospel songs,to me its just that the old hymns marinates your spirit

Ugly Religion

I have just started reading a book by Max Lucado titled AND THE ANGELS WERE SILENT. Yesterday I finished chapter 4 and it was about Ugly Religion. I felt that this Chapter would be good to share

In this Chapter Max uses the story of the blind men,how they were loud and obnoxious because they wanted Jesus to heal their eyes so they could see.

That is the way some Christians and Denominations are. They feel like God is to busy for the poor or little people. When they are denied access to Christ,it leaves them empty. Ugly Religion.

If you don't wear the right clothes to Church,or maybe your prayers are prayed differently. Your Church has few members than most. God is not concerned about any of that. He is more concerned with your heart being right.

He just wants us to do the best we can with what we have,and that is enough for God.

In Jeremiah 29:13(NKJV)
And you will seek Me and find Me,when you search for Me with all your heart.

I recommend this book to everyone if you have not read it already.

Times Like These

Today God put this song in my spirit

In times like these you need a Saviour
In times like these you need an Anchor
Be very sure,be very sure
Your anchor holds and grips the solid Rock

This Rock is Jesus,Yes He's the one
This Rock is Jeuse,the only one
Be very sure,be very sure
Your anchor holds and grips the solid Rock

In times like these you need a Bible
In times like these O be not idle
Be very sure,be very sure
Your anchor holds and grips the solid Rock

I pray that whomever this was meant for that it gives you much needed comfort in whatever you are going through

All Things Work Together For Good

Romans 8:28
And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God,to those who are the called according to His purpose.

Everybody is going to go through somethings that don't make sense. For instances losing your job,home,health issues and marriages and relationships. So we start to complain and grip and wonder why is this happening to me. I shouldn't be going through this. We do this because we do not have a full understanding and full knowledge of the word.

We are not going through a depression or a recession,this is the wrath of God. Even though we are Christians we have to go through the storms also. See God is tired of the way the earth has become corrupted,and people depending on man instead of Him.

Romans 8:29
For whom he foreknew,He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son,that He might be the first born among many brethren.

God's ultimate purpose for us is to grow more and more into the image of His Son. He wants to mold,shape and transform us into Godly,righteous and Holy Saints.

Romans 12:12
Rejoicing in hope,patient in tribulation,continuing steadfastly in prayer.

So as these trials come we should be joyful and thankful,God is working in our life,he has a plan and purpose.

James 1:2-4
My brethren count it all Joy when you fall into various trials,Knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work that you may be perfect and complete,lacking nothing.

Perfect-being without fault
Lacking nothing-having need of nothing

When one door closes,God has another door for you to walk through something better.

The difficulties and challenges are merely stepping stones toward your brighter future.

This was a message that God gave me. I just wanted to share it cause there might be someone who right now feels that there is no Hope that God has forgotten about them.

I pray that this message will uplift someone and give them Hope.

Thank you Lord

I Have a testimony this morning that I want to share. Me and a group of women were scheduled to go to Joyce Meyers conference in Tulsa,Oklahoma. We were suppose to leave this morning and return back to Kansas on Sunday morning. All last week a couple of the had some unexpected car repairs. We still were going to try and make the trip regardless. Sunday my sister came by and informed me that she had a tooth that was infected and causing her alot of discomfort,but she was still willing to go. So,Monday the Lord just put it on my heart that this was not our time,to much unexpected things were happening. My heart was like but I want to go and God said not this time. We cancelled the trip.

On Wednesday I went to my Doctor for a routine check-up,when the nurse came and took my blood pressure it was 170/100. I have never had high blood pressure before,but I have been noticing that I have been suffering with alot of headaches and sometimes I would feel like I was going to pass out. Now it has been some years since I have been to the doctor since I had no insurance. To God be the glory because I was able to find some insurance that I could afford.

I said this to just show how God knew what my medical circumstances was going to be. See I had not planned on going to the doctor until after our trip. Since we had to cancel I went ahead and made an appointment. It is so wonderful to be kept by Jesus.
He knows everything about us even when we don't.

So you see sometimes when we say yes to something and then things don't fall into place its because God knows what lies ahead and he is just trying to keep us safe. We all could have been hard headed and went on the trip anyway,but only God knows what would have awaited us on this trip.

The Talent (Chapter 4)

This morning as I had my quiet time with the Lord he spoke these words to me."You have a special talent that I have given you and you are just letting it go dormant". Now I have been unemployed since September and for the most part I really haven't been spending my every waking moment looking for a job. So, before I had my quiet time with Lord this morning I was pondering on a job. I had asked my mother about maybe I would look into being a bus aide. Her remark was that since they have been cutting back she didn't think they would be hiring. Okay,so back to the drawing board on a search for a job.

Now I have been conversing with the Lord and he tells me that I have just been sitting on a talent that he gave me. At first I was like no I don't think so,and then he said "you can sew can't you",all I could say was yes Lord I can but I have not sewn for quite a long time. It doesn't matter how long its been the talent is still there.

So, I have put my plan in motion,I was reminded of a sermon one of our Assistant ministers preached. He had spoke on not to think little but think big. I told my mom that I am going to be an entrepreneur. I have already started writing down my plans I am going to make some items and sell them at my mothers garage sale,then I am going to rent a booth and sell some items there,get me some business cards printed up and from there the sky's the limit. (Philippians 4:13) I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. God said it and I am going to do it.

Before I truly had opened my heart to the Lord, I never knew that when things would come to me I would always say something told me. Now I know that God had always been talking to me I just was so preoccupied in doing my own thing that I never realized it.

I am so grateful to be in the position that I am in now with the Lord. To know that there is nothing that we as Christians cannot accomplish as long as we trust and have faith in the Lord.

The Retreat (Chapter3)

On May 1st. I was able to go on my first retreat. It was me and 6 other ladies from our Purpose En Route to Destiny class. I have always wanted to attend a retreat so I was very excited to go. Our retreat was at Buffalo Ridge which is located in Williamsburg,Kansas. It was a beautiful place out in a rural area and very peaceful. When we arrived on Friday evening we had brought snacks and so we eat and fellowshipped together. We watched a very good movie called "End of the Spear"

This was a very moving movie for me. He shows how we should be forgiving Christians. I recommend this movie if you have not seen it.

On Saturday morning when I woke up I looked outside the bedroom window and I saw the Buffalo. They are amazing animals and I was in Aw watching them move. They would move and then just stop and it was like they were standng still. We could learn from these animals because they take their time they are in no hurry. We seem to at times be in a hurry,and for what reason whatever we have that needs to get done God will make sure it gets done.

Beginning of Transformation (Chapter 2)

I have always felt that there was something else I should have been doing in my life. My days and weeks consisted of going to work and Church on Sundays. I knew in my spirit that there was something missing. So I began to pray and ask God to send me someone who would give me that incentive to become more involved in serving God.

I had a co-worker who invited me to go to a evening program at her church. I went and I was really feeling enjoying the program. Then it happened they had a Prophet there and for some reason I wanted to just leave the building. In the back of my mind I remember being taught to be aware of false prophets. Well he asked everyone to come up front so that he could lay hands on them, of course I stayed in my seat. As the line got shorter he looked out in the audience and knew I had not been up so he called me up front. I went very slowly, when it came time for him to lay hands on me he told me that I had a peculiar spirit. Right then I was like to myself he really is off base. Then he told me that I was not suppose to be here, and I proceeded to tell him that I was invited. He said no that is not what I meant,you were not suppose to be born. Wow, that really blew me away and I knew then he must be one of those false prophets.

Little did I know that God was placing me back on the right path getting me ready for my purpose. One morning me and my mother were at the table and for some reason she started talking about how her pregnancy was when she was carrying me. I found out that my mother had a very difficult pregnancy with me,and that after she delivered me they had to resuscitate me. When she told me all this I shared with her about the prophet,needless to say we both just looked at each other and began to cry. So even when I was in my mothers womb the enemy tried to destroy me. That is why I love the song God Blocked It by Kurt Carr. That song is definitely my testimony.

My prayers were answered God sent a lady to our church and we just really connected. It is through her I am now involved in 2 bible study classes for women. I graduated in December from the Purpose En Route to Destiny classes. Through these activities I now have more involvement than work and Church. God is so good to us sometimes that we do not realize it. I thank the Lord each day that I came to realize all that he has for me.

I am a Preacher and Evangelist I would have gotten on the right path eventually but I am sure the Lord said this child needs a push. It is so amazing to me know all the things that I do now I have become a diligent seeker of his word. I am more knowledgeable of his word than I have ever been.

It has been about 2 weeks ago and I spoke at a High Rise for senior citizens. The title of my message was All Things Work Together For Good. The day that I was to deliver this message I was very worried that I would not deliver it right. So I kept going over it until God said put it away you cannot mess it up it comes straight from the Bible and those are my words. So as I was giving the message it was like I was outside my body,the words that I spoke definitely came from God. When I had finished there was a lady that came up to me and she said I enjoyed the message and now I have Hope. Wow,me who was once lost in sin,the Lord has come into my life and I have given someone hope.

A brief moment in the past (Chapter 1)

Wow, I do not know where to start my journey so far has been very eventful(PRAISE GOD).

I have always been a women who attended church pretty regular. Like most of you I was raised in going to Sunday School and Church. Of course as I got older and was able to make decisions on my own I did not attend that regular. So the paths that I chose to take were not those that God had paved for me. I had a bad marriage one that I had to endure verbal and physical abuse again this was a choice I made. Now I know what the word uneven yoke is all about. I and my 4 children attend church not on a regular basis but we did go. At times is was very hard because when we would return home from church I was always greeted by the enemy. Sometimes I felt like what is the use whatever I got out of the message and the fellowship with the saints has diminished now. One day I had finally had enough of this lifestyle and made the decision to get out of this marriage. That is exactly what I did.

I started this post with my broken marriage so that as the other post are read this might be a blessing for someone else who is are have gone through something similar if not the same. To know that there is a life for you that is far better than the one you have now.

I have come to understand exactly what is meant by the Scripture Romans 8:28 "And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God,to those who are the called according to His purpose". Now that I know what purpose God has for me,I am able to understand that all the trials and tribulations that I went through in my life was to get me to this season. Every obstacle that I have had to face was hard but now I can help someone who is going through what I had to endure. We need to know that as we continue on our journeys that God has paved for us we will have to go through somethings in order to do His will. Lets say for instance someone comes up to you who is dealing with something and this thing has pretty much exhausted them. So they come to you for some guidance. I feel that instead of saying to them I can only imagine what you are going through, you tell them I know what you going through and I am here to tell you that God will get you through it I am a living testimony that he will

My Personal Journey with God (Introduction)

Before I get started just want to say Hello to all Bloggers. I have been off the blog for sometime. But I am happy to say that I am back.

This weekend I went on a Christian retreat with some of our Purpose En Route to Destiny Leaders and new graduates (which I am ). We went to Buffalo Ridge which is located in Williamsburg Kansas. Going on this retreat has been something that I have always wanted to participate in,so this was really a treat for me. We were definitely in a rural area as we drove up to the site we saw sheep,goats,Angus cattle,chickens and roosters. To get a better ideal of where I was go to

There is so much to tell everyone of what has been going on in my life,so for the days to come I will be telling of my Journey that God has placed me on. I am so much more connected to him than ever before. So with that full connection that I have with my Lord and Savior the enemy has been on my heels like never before. But I am truly a soldier in the army of the Lord right there on the front line to do his will and to fulfill my purpose and destiny.

This is just the preface of my Journey,please return tomorrow for more.
