SURRENDER

 Let your river flow Father. Bring me into the depths of you. Let me drink from the purity of your truth.  Poor over me today so to capture my heart with utmost trust in that which runs from the spring of your mighty hands.  May your living water awaken me, renewing my strength in obedient service to you and those you place before me.  Rinse away any impurity that may infect my mind, heart, or body, debilitating me from your sanctification. May I go forth in relationship with you,  identified as your own, valued as evidenced by your unconditional love, purposed by your ordination, responsible surrendered through humility, submitted by choice, obedient to your call.  -Clint Fleming "And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect." Romans 12:2 NASB "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father

Protect Your Mind

  Hello.  How does that saying go, "Another day, another dollar"?   Some days it just seems like our only purpose in life is to "keep the lights on and mouths fed".  No matter how true the contrary, it's hard not to fall into that mindset. "For I know the plans I have for you..." Jeremiah 29:11-14.  How do you and I participate in His plan being responsible to the "surrender" John 3:30, Jeremiah 10:23 and the "doing" James 1:22? As I write this, and I imagine as your read, those concerns, decisions, or circumstances of life waylay in the mind. Like trying to balance oneself on a teeter totter, one step too far to one side, your off balance and risk a fall. No, not that the fall would necessarily cause injury, but may lead to doubt, either in yourself, God, or both. Walking the path of His plan may seem at times, like walking a tight rope. Each step you take, your body flails to maintain balance. Ever watch a tight rope walker?

Moving Mountains

When does God move mountains in your life? When you trust in His coordinates and put on your hiking boots.  Jeremiah 29:11-14 -Clint

Happy New Year

Well, Another page to be turned over as we look ahead to a new year. Hopefully 2020 served to  open the eyes of each to see how prevalent and diffuse the enemy is.  If there was ever a  need for focus, it is now. What is necessary for each as we are called to focus on Fathers will/plan?  1) Relationship:  Relationship is key!!!! Each member of the body must be in constant communication with the triune God head.  A healthy relationship with God is not only being mindful of Him, but intentionally seeking Him in mind, body, and soul.  Praying to Father, studying His word and doing as He instructs through His word and Spirit are exercises to build a deep, intimate relationship with Father. Obedience!!  Physical exercise allows for your circulation to flow uninterrupted. So does your Spiritual and mental exercise. Mediocrity is the agent to induce imminent Spiritual death.  2) Communication: Communication is a necessary component of any relationship. Prayer is key to open, intimate relation

Merry Christmas!

When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy. After coming into the house they saw the Child with Mary His mother; and they fell to the ground and worshiped Him. Then, opening their treasures, they presented to Him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. Matthew 2:10‭-‬11 NASB

To Be Or Not To Be

During my career as a Paramedic, I would teach CPR to the public so to empower the students with the skills that could help him or her save a life.  Who is the first responder to the first responders? The general public. During my CPR classes, I would refer to my students as the first responders. Why? Because they were.  By reffering to them as such, I instilled a sense of belonging which would in turn help to secure the individuals sense of ownership to the well being of his or her neighbor.  In Acts 20:35, Paul teaches that we are to help the weak. Also, we are reminded of the words of Jesus, "it is better to give than to receive".  What is the value of ownership without the understanding of the significance of that of which you own? Setting aside greed, ownership should bring a sense of gratitude. It is that gratitude in the believer that should act as the motivator to give. If I have Christ, understanding the significance of that relationship, I should be be grateful and

CROSSROADS

  I stand at an intersection all alone. I've not been here before, its unfamiliar.  Which direction to take is unclear, my path Is unknown. My heart is heavy, I'm vulnerable to fear. I need help with every decision, I must not be confused, my head needs to be clear. LORD open my eyes, open my ears,  open my heart, lead me in the direction of which I'm to start. In this uncertain time, I'm overwhelmed,  Seems like I'm carrying such a heavy load, Help me give all of which burdens me over to you So I will reach your goal, and at this Crossroad, you I trust will get me through.
