Keep On Keeping On ~ DeVonne Reed

Good morning!
I am sharing what is in my heart this morning.
I am thinking this, therefore, I am speaking it... out loud this morning!

I choose to speak LIFE!

Luke 6:45. KJV.
Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks!

Luke 6:45 TLB.
Whatever is in the heart OVERFLOWS into speech!

I know, IN WHOM I have BELIEVED and I am FULLY PERSUADED, HE IS ABLE!
HE created me!
I will not be afraid!
HE paid a great price for me, HE bought me!
HE calls me by my name!
I am HIS!

Guess what?
NO MATTER what I am GOing THROUGH, or where I am WALKING, HE IS WITH ME!

Guess what?
"IF" I stop in the middle, it will be just as far for me to walk back, as it will be for me to keep walking forward!
I am determined... I am NOT STOPPING, I am GOING THROUGH!

Isaiah 43:1-2. TLB

1. BUT NOW THE LORD WHO CREATED YOU, O Israel, says, "Don't Be Afraid, For I Have Randsomed You; I Have Called You By Your Name; You Are Mine."

2. When you GO THROUGH deep waters and great trouble, I WILL BE WITH you.
When you GO THROUGH rivers of difficulty, you WILL NOT drown!
When you WALK THROUGH the fire of oppression, you WILL NOT be burned up- the flames WILL NOT consume you.

"Heartstrings" ~ DeVonne Reed

I read an article titled, "Broken Heart Syndrome".

Being skeptical, I asked my Dr. about this. He said, "it is true."
The facts are, that some have died with a broken heart.


Matters of the heart, matter!


This definitely, lets me know that the heart is very strong, and at the same time, it is delicate and very fragile.

All of us at one time or another, have experienced people playing with and upon our heart.

 Some people will continually play with it. As long as we allow them to do so.

They start out with good intentions. Making promises to you, and reassure you,  they have no intention of hurting you, or ever leaving you broken.

But...then things change, and...

The lyrics of their song is not in sync with the music they begin to play.

It is no longer in harmony.
It is out of tune.
There is no rhythm and it skips a beat.

They begin striking chords out of harmony, pulling and plucking at these strings until, their song is no longer soothing to your soul. Actually, there is no song left to sing. We are left with a broken heart. Completely broken.

Think about it...this organ, the heart it has strings, "heartstrings."

Don't allow your heart to get played too much, guard it!
Because it can be broken.

We have been told what does not kill you, will make you stronger!

So how can you mend a broken heart? You can't!  Only Jesus can do that!
There is hope. Pick up all of the fragments no matter how shredded they may be, and carry them to Jesus, HE has "healing hands."

Proverbs 4:23.
Keep thy heart with ALL DILIGENCE; for out of it ARE THE ISSUES OF LIFE.


Who is playing on our "heartstrings" today?

Words Matter ~ DeVonne Reed

Proverbs 18:21.

Death and Life are in the POWER of the tongue, they that love it will eat its fruit.

The Bible gives us a GUARANTEE, we will eat our WORDS, again!

Death or Life!
Good or Bad!
Bitter or Sweet!

Death, bad and bitter words, tear us down as well as others, and they do not taste quite as good going back in, as they did coming out!

Words of Life, good and sweet things that are spoken in and with the RIGHT attitude, will build us up, as well as others!

Start building up, instead of tearing down!

I choose to  speak "words" of life, I like their flavor, they are sweet!

When Seeds are planted, and tended, they will grow! Right?!

SO, pick your seeds wisely! Because, after they are planted, they WILL bear much fruit, bringing a bountiful harvest along with it!

That little member.. the tongue, speaks. People, we create our atmosphere. What is happening in your world? Is it a mess or is it a blessing.
Life can be a good adventure or a bad one. With our chosen and spoken words.

You and I may have spoken WORDS a year ago or possibly they were spoken yesterday, it does not matter when, they were spoken, they will come into fruition.

Isn't it true? We all want to blame someone, for the death we speak into and over our own life. We especially want to falsely accuse God or the devil, for making us miserable, when in fact it is our own fault!

Stop it!

We need to take responsibility for ourselves. Take a long LOOK IN THE MIRROR!

See it, see it...THERE IT IS!

It is you!

It is me!

"I" am the REAL SOURCE OF my PROBLEMS!

We do it to ourselves!

SO, Don't blame others for what YOU have allowed to slip out from between your teeth and then expect them to eat of your fruit!

Definitely, out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth will speak!
WEIGH YOUR WORDS!

Cleaning my own plate is enough for me!

When we finally realize, that what we are speaking matters, we can change things, by SPEAKING LIFE, NOT DEATH!

The Last Time ~ Author Unknown ~

The Last Time

From the moment you hold your baby in your arms,
you will never be the same.
You might long for the person you were before,
When you have freedom and time,
And nothing in particular to worry about.

You will know tiredness like you never knew it before,
And days will run into days that are exactly the same,
Full of feedings and burping,
Nappy changes and crying,
Whining and fighting,
Naps or a lack of naps,
It might seem like a never-ending cycle.

But don’t forget …
There is a last time for everything.
There will come a time when you will feed
your baby for the very last time.
They will fall asleep on you after a long day
And it will be the last time you ever hold your sleeping child.

One day you will carry them on your hip then set them down,
And never pick them up that way again.
You will scrub their hair in the bath one night
And from that day on they will want to bathe alone.
They will hold your hand to cross the road,
Then never reach for it again.
They will creep into your room at midnight for cuddles,
And it will be the last night you ever wake to this.

One afternoon you will sing “the wheels on the bus”
and do all the actions,
Then never sing them that song again.
They will kiss you goodbye at the school gate,
The next day they will ask to walk to the gate alone.
You will read a final bedtime story and wipe your last dirty face.
They will run to you with arms raised for the very last time.

The thing is, you won’t even know it’s the last time
Until there are no more times.
And even then, it will take you a while to realize.

So while you are living in these times,
remember there are only so many of them
and when they are gone, you will yearn for just one more day of them.
For one last time.

Bud And Blossom ~ DeVonne Reed

Good morning momma <3
I have said it before, I'll say it again, you my dear are the most beautiful girl in the world! I love you!

Today would have marked 62 years of being married to Daddy, if he were still with you.
<3 Happy Anniversary <3

I remember you telling me, about the first time you saw Daddy, you were 8 years old and Daddy was 12. You fell in love at such an early age, but looking now, God was truly setting the stage.

You always said, if you could not have Daddy, you did not want anyone else, either. Smiling.

It is amazing...even then, you knew you were his, and he was yours. You knew, that you were his one and only, and I believe, in your heart, you still are!

Could it be there really is such a thing as, "Love At First Sight?" Yes, there is!

I saw clearly, how true love is exemplified between a man and the love of his life.
Between my Daddy and Mother, this man and his wife. Thank you, Daddy and Mother.

Momma, I do not know or even begin to say that I understand, how you feel. I can only imagine how much you miss Daddy, everyday, but especially, today. I imagine, you long to see him, to hear his voice, just to touch his hand once again, and one more time, just to have him near, to hold you tight and whisper in your ear. <3

Today, I know you will reflect and recall from the memories you hold in your heart, those that you so deeply cherish and treasure. I know it will bring a smile to your face. Ahhhh yes, the memories, of your beautiful, once in a lifetime, kind of love.

I wrote this just for you.

Bud And Blossom
By: DeVonne Reed

Once upon a love story, so this story goes...
There was a beautiful, red haired little girl and a handsome little fellow.
Two young and innocent souls exchanging their shy, sweet smiles
and blushing glances.

The moment their eyes met, they knew it was fate and not just by any chances, that
their path was chosen and ordained by God above. HE gave them a seed of love.
The seed was planted deep inside their hearts of these two, and it grew.
Eight years passed. They never lost sight of one another.

Genuinely in love they married on March 14, 1953. These two became one.
This kind of love you don't see much anymore, because people think and choose, that love is not worth fighting for.

Others make a wish and have a dream, hoping to find this kind of Love.
They will have to keep on searching, because truly yours was sent with many blessings from the Father in Heaven above.

Love in full bloom, left the lingering scent, etched within my mind. Reminding me of what it means to truly give your all.

LOVE, became a bud, a fragrant flower in the stage of blossom.

Addition Multiplied ~ DeVonne Reed

2 Peter 1:1-8 KJV

1. Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith (of EQUAL privilege with ours) with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ: (All believers have EQUAL standing and SHARE the same blessings).

2. Grace and peace be MULTIPLIED (abundance) unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord;

Grace: unmerited favor.

Peace: sense of well being and the attendant blessings that a person enjoys because of a RIGHT relationship with Christ.

3. According as his divine power hath given unto us (resources HE provides everything) ALL things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory (HIS OWN GLORY) and virtue: (goodness).

A combination of glory and goodness, refer to the moral EXCELLENCE of CHRIST.

4. Whereby are given unto us EXCEEDING great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers (participate in) of the divine nature, having escaped (Jesus Christ offers and is the ONLY WAY to escape) the corruption that is in the world through lust (evil desires).

It is only through faith, I build my foundation on God's love. Then, I may start ADDING each one of these qualities together, that SPRING from the previous one.

5. And beside this,  (for this very reason) giving all diligence, (make every effort) ADD to your faith virtue; (goodness) and to virtue knowledge;

6. And to knowledge temperance; (self-control) and to temperance patience; (perseverance) and to patience godliness;

7. And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. (LOVE).

I "added" verse 8.

8. For IF these things be IN YOU, (IF you possess these qualities) and ABOUND, (they increasing measure) they MAKE you (keep you from being) that ye shall neither be barren (ineffective) nor unfruitful (unproductive) in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

GOD'S addition sums it ALL up!

Here is the math. You do it!

Adding: faith + goodness + knowledge + self-control + perseverance + godliness + brotherly kindness + LOVE = ABOUNDING, EFFECTIVE, PRODUCTIVE, KNOWLEDGE OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST.

I Choose to Forgive ~ DeVonne Reed

Thinking out loud and speaking, from experience, "IF" people would just do things God's way, the RIGHT WAY, as many scriptures instruct and tell us to do them, many offenses could be avoided all together, or at least kept at bay.
We have NO EXCUSE, not to be forgiving towards one another.
THE WORD says, "IF" we cannot forgive, neither will God forgive us.

Mark 11:25.
25. And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive your tresspasses.
26. But IF ye DO NOT FORGIVE, NEITHER WILL YOUR FATHER which is in Heaven forgive your tresspasses.

 Luke 17: 3. Take heed to yourselves: IF thy brother tresspass against thee, rebuke him; and IF he repent, forgive him.

2 Corinthians 2:7.
So that contrariwise ye ought rather to forgive him, and comfort him, lest perhaps such a one should be swallowed up with overmuch sorrow.

I desire GOD'S mercy, HIS grace and HIS FORGIVENESS, therefore I choose to FORGIVE.

How about you?

A clear conscience, sure is a soft pillow!

Breakfast of Champions ~ DeVonne Reed

Breakfast Of Champions by DeVonne Reed

As a child, on Saturday mornings while watching cartoons, I  remember seeing and hearing commercials on TV. I especially remember the ones about certain cereals.
Like all children, I liked and would rather have the sugary, sweet, and fun cereal.
My mom payed attention also. She purchased some brands of cereal, because of their advertising and persuasive slogans.

I remember, the "Wheaties" commercials.
"THE BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS."
They included along with their slogan, pictures of hundreds of different athletes from many different sports and teams, and even endorsed the Olympic games.
"WHEATIES"
"THE BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS. "
Not just anyone was put on the box of "Wheaties", only the best of the best!

I remember this slogan, in particular, "BETTER EAT YOUR WHEATIES."
I was inspired! I wanted to be a champion, also! So I ate my "Wheaties."
After tasting them, I was disappointed, because they didn't taste like much of anything to me. Ha! Besides, eating them, did not make me look like or act like any of the people on that  large, orange box!
I often wondered, did these famous people really even eat the breakfast of champions?
Probably not. Was their picture just an endorsement? Another means to have great sales?
Probably so.

There is a BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS!

Did you awaken hungry?
Are ready for breakfast?
No, it's not Wheaties. "smile."
This food will give you supernatural strength, keen eyesight, and sharp hearing.
It will change you from the inside out.
The best part about it is, you can eat as much, as you desire!
You won't have to count calories, either. "smile."
                           
IT IS THE WORD OF GOD.
You should try HIM! HE is "indescribably" delicious! There is an endless supply!
There is plenty! There is enough for everyone! Will someone please pass the Bread? Jesus is the Bread of Life!

John 6:35, 47-48. KJV
35. And JESUS said unto them, I AM the BREAD OF LIFE: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that BELIEVETH on Me shall never thirst.
47. Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that BELIEVETH on Me hath EVERLASTING LIFE.
48. I AM THE BREAD OF LIFE.    Oh taste and see that the Lord IS GOOD!

Now, after you have eaten the Bread, aren't you thirsty?
There is fresh Water to drink! This water, is so refreshing, it will satisfy your deepest thirst.
You know the kind of thirst I am talking about, we all have experienced those times you when nothing else will quench your thirst, but water. Jesus is the LIVING WATER!

Are you  parched, tired, and weary. Then, COME to this fountain. It is continually springing up.
Drink from this Water and you will never thirst again! He will refresh, rehydrate, replenish and completely satisfy our dry and thirsty souls.

John 4:10. KJV
Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the GIFT OF GOD, and WHO it is  that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of HIM, and HE would have give thee LIVING WATER.

Breakfast is served. Come to the table.
Get your fill to eat and drink, but ALWAYS keep that hunger!

Jesus holds the world record for being, "The Heavy Weight CHAMPION" of the WORLD!
He carried and bore the weight of your sins and mine. YES, the weight of world was upon Him. He Is The Champion! He has WON! If we believe in HIM, WE WIN!

NEW ~ DeVonne Reed

I have some very comfortable, old clothes, that I love to put on when I want to kick back and just relax. These clothes, are clothes, that I would never wear out in the public. I only wear these clothes in the privacy of my own home.

But, when I have an event to attend, I change my clothes.
To be presentable for the occassion.

Before Jesus, came into my life, my spiritual life was a mess. I was clothed in and I wore an old, filthy, tattered, torn and stained garment, I was marked and scarred by sin and that defined me and labeled me as a sinner.

But, after I repented to Jesus, I confessed to Jesus and I believed in Jesus, HE cleansed me and HE washed away all of my sins. I had an inward change of "spiritual" clothes.
As I read the Bible, I found out, there are some things I must do for myself. I had to change! CHANGE my ways of living, my ways of walking, my ways of talking, my ways of thinking. My WAYS had to CHANGE! My whole conversation, my WAY of life had to be transformed. Thank God, I am not that same old person, I have been conformed into the image of Christ.

When we "put off" the old garment and "put on" THE NEW, we are fully dressed.
When we clothe ourselves, in His nature and HIS attributes, we will manifest, and begin to show, that we are a NEW creation in Christ Jesus!


Just like a woman, expecting a baby, her body changes, usually around 5 months into her pregnancy, she get the baby bump! She cannot deny or hide it, when she begins to show.

Yes, Thank God We Will Be CHANGED!

Many of us say, we are carrying the SEED of GOD, which is the WORD, which is Jesus!
Can anyone tell you are pregnant with HIS FRUIT? IS HE SHOWING and being REVEALED THROUGH YOU? Can the world see Jesus in you?

With Jesus working on the inside of me, while I am working on the outside, we are working together, and I am CHANGED! No longer, will things remain the same!
When I do not know where to go or what to do, I follow HIM, and the whole course of my life will begin to flow in a NEW and different direction.

John 14:6
JESUS IS THE WAY!
JESUS IS THE TRUTH!
JESUS IS THE LIFE!

We are given a NEW and living WAY. Hebrews 10:20.

HIS WAYS ARE EVERLASTING! Habakkuk 3:6.

HIS WAY,  is of peace, Ezekiel 34:25.

HIS WAY,  is of Life and peace, Malachi 2:5.

He will give us a NEW song. Sing unto the LORD a new song. Isaiah 42:10.

He has given us a NEW name. Luke 10:20. But rather rejoice, because "your names" are written in Heaven.

Revelation 2:17. And in the stone a "NEW name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

Revelation 3:12. Him that overcometh I will make a pillar in the temple of my God and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my GOD, and the name of the city of my GOD, which is the NEW Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my GOD: and I will write upon him my NEW name.

Romans12:2. And be not CONFORMED to this world: but be ye TRANSFORME by the RENEWING of your mind, that ye prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of GOD.

You may say, " I have messed up, and I failed!" So what! Who hasn't? If you still have breath in your body, then you still have a purpose! GOD has a plan!
Get up! REPENT! Start over, because, Failure Is NOT Final, With Our Father!

We ALL have the opportunity to, turn Over a " NEW LEAF."

With GOD ALL THINGS are POSSIBLE!

HE Makes ALL THINGS NEW!

2 Corinthians 6:2.
Behold NOW IS the accepted TIME; behold NOW IS the DAY of SALVATION.

Joshua 24:15.

10. For it is with your heart that you BELIEVE and are JUSTIFIED, and it is with your mouth that you CONFESS and are SAVED.

Simply
1. CONFESS with your mouth.
2. BELIEVE in your heart.
3. BE SAVED.

Come unto Jesus, give HIM your life TODAY!

Jesus is THE WAY, THE TRUTH and THE LIFE.

EFFORT ~ DeVonne Reed



"IF", I PUT FORTH THE EFFORT, giving 100% to diligently work, doing my best, in everything I do, physically, mentally and spiritually, I CAN and I  WILL ACCOMPLSH, ACHEIVE, ADVANCE, AND END AT MY DESTINATION!

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

NOTHING worth having was ever acheived WITHOUT EFFORT.

The difference between ORDINARY and EXTRAORDINARY is that little extra.
~ Jimmy Johnson

EFFORT is IMPORTANT, but KNOWING where to make an EFFORT makes ALL THE DIFFERENCE!

Commissioned Part 1

I am adding myself into this scripture. It is personal.


Acts 17:28.

For In HIM we (I) LIVE and (I) MOVE, and (I) HAVE our (MY) BEING! As some of your own poets have said, " WE ARE (I am) HIS OFFSPRING."


HE, JESUS, IS THE KING OF GLORY!


HE came down from the Father.

From Heaven to Earth.

Jesus was carried in an earthen vessel, for the usual nine months, until the time of HIS birth. HE was born of a virgin, Mary.

She wrapped HIM in swaddling cloths and laid HIM in the manger. She loved, held and kissed her firstborn son, the precious LAMB OF GOD.

Mary knew and kept all these things and pondered them in her heart...

THE SON OF GOD, was raised and lived as a carpenter's son.

He grew. He was strong in the Spirit, HE was filled with wisdom: and the grace of GOD was upon HIM.

Even at the age of twelve in the temple, HE astounded men with HIS understanding and answers. When HIS earthly parents found HIM, HE replied, "Do you not understand, I AM about MY FATHER'S BUSINESS."

 HE was on a mission, to fulfill THE FATHER'S COMMISSION.

HE WALKED AND TALKED WITH MAN.

HE did many miracles.

THE RELIGIOUS CROWD HATED JESUS THEN, and THE RELIGIOUS CROWD STILL HATES HIM TODAY!

Why?

Because, men still love darkness rather than light.

Men do not want to be called out or exposed for their lies and hypocrisy, and don't you dare tell them they are wrong or try to correct them with GODS WORD. Like Jesus, calling their sin -sin, or their evil actions, evil! DON'T YOU DARE EXPOSE THEM, BY THREATENING THEIR PRESTIGE OR THEIR SECURITY OF INCOME. This is what Jesus did! They thought HE was going to tear their playhouse down. They thought HE would RUIN everything they had built. CAN YOU SEE IT? This pattern remains in our world today.

To be continued...

D'sHeart <3

Commissioned Part 2

Part 2.

These RELIGIOUS men, got mad! They were angry with Jesus, they began to plot together, in unity, of how they could get rid of HIM.
They wanted to kill HIM! They wanted HIM dead!
They cried, "Crucify Him, Crucify HIM."
Among men... the religious crowd, HIS Mother, HIS family, HIS disciples, HIS followers, many stood by helplessly, watching, yes, people saw HIM, HE was whipped and beaten beyond recognition.
HE was hung on an old rugged cross, hanging there, with huge nails through HIS hands and HIS feet.
HE EVEN ASKED THE FATHER, "WHY?"
HE SAID, "NEVERTHELESS, NOT MY WILL, BUT THINE!"
HE lifted HIS VOICE and HE CRIED, "IT IS FINISHED!"
HE hung HIS head and HE Died.
HE DIED FOR YOU AND I !
From the Cross to The Grave
HE was in the Grave, three days, just like HE said.
BUT....
On the third day, THE STONE WAS ROLLED AWAY.
THE ROCK OF AGES WALKED OUT!
HE IS WITHOUT A DOUBT, THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE!
HE'S ALIVE, HE'S ALIVE, HE'S ALIVE!

THANK YOU JESUS, for YOUR LOVE, YOUR MERCY and YOUR AMAZING GRACE!
THANK YOU, for taking my place!

THANK YOU for bringing me from sin to Salvation!
THANK YOU for opening my prison of darkness, allowing me to hear and see.
THANK YOU for loosing the shackles of bondage and setting me free.
YOU granted FREEDOM to me, now I walk in YOUR MARVELOUS LIGHT!


I owed a debt, I could not pay. HE PAID A DEBT, HE DID NOT OWE!

HE WAS CHOSEN TO BE THE ONE, WHOM THROUGH SALVATION WOULD COME.

John 3:16-17.
16. For GOD SO LOVED the WORLD,
That HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON,
That WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH
IN HIM
SHOULD NOT PERISH
BUT
HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE.

17. For GOD sent not HIS SON into the world to CONDEMN the world;
BUT that the world THROUGH HIM MIGHT BE SAVED.

You are filled with purpose and a reason.

Revive Us Again ~ DeVonne Reed

Psalm 85:6. WILL YOU NOT REVIVE US AGAIN?

REVIVE:
1. Revive cause to regain consciousness. Resuscitate.
2. Give new life or energy to. Repair, quicken, renovate.
3. Be brought back to life. Strength.
4. Ressurect, restore from inactive or unused state.
5. Come to.

Judges 15:18-19. NIV.
18. Because he was VERY THIRSTY, HE CRIED OUT TO THE LORD, " YOU HAVE GIVEN YOUR SERVANT THIS GREAT VICTORY. Must I NOW DIE OF THIRST and FALL INTO THE HANDS OF THE UNCIRCUMCISED?"

19. THEN GOD OPENED UP THE HOLLOW PLACE IN Lehi and WATER CAME OUT OF IT. When Samson DRANK, his STRENGTH RETURNED and he REVIVED.

Sunday morning March 1, 2015, our church began a revival, it ran through Wednesday night, a total of five services. Let me tell you, this was not just an ordinary meeting, nor any common church service! It was New, it was like heaven, right here on earth! Filled with the fire of the Holy Ghost, yes, eye opening and life changing!

While listening to the man of GOD, Prophet Brother Daniel Lee, as he spoke under the anointing. His vessel was filled with living water and he broke the Bread of Life, in the power and demonstration of the Holy Ghost. HE SPOKE THE UNADULTERATED WORD OF GOD!
He spoke to THE WORD, the SEED that I am carrying within me. He confirmed, what I had already read and studied prior to his spoken messages. I ate and drank from the table of the LORD! GOD IS GOOD! THE LIVING WORD, that resides within me, was quickened and began to LEAP!

The spoken WORD, was perfectly seasoned with salt, and made me thirst for Jesus NOW, more than ever before! This level of hunger and thirst, has caused me to take desperate measures! I am determined to sit at HIS feet and seek HIM! NOTHING ELSE has or ever will fully satisfy the longing of my soul, like Jesus has! Oh! I wish, I could convey, just how much Jesus really means to me!
I am in pursuit after HIM, because HE IS what MATTERS most in my life!

"Fill my cup, Lord, I lift it up Lord
Come and quench this thirsting of my soul
Bread of heaven feed me till I want no more
Fill my cup, fill it up and make me whole."

There is a banquet table, beautifully spread, it is full!
There is plenty, a never ending supply, there is enough for everyone to eat of this BREAD and drink of this LIVING WATER, until we are completely satisfied!
No one, ever has to leave HIS table, hungry or thirsty!

How hungry are you? How thirsty are you?
The empty and hollow places in our lives can be filled.
Don't die of hunger!
Don't die of thirst!
COME AND DINE!
Eat and drink at HIS table!
Be strengthened and be revived!



To the hungry, The Master is calling, "COME AND DINE!"
With Jesus we will feast eternally!


Psalm 85:6. WILL YOU NOT REVIVE US AGAIN?
The answer is YES!
YES, HE WILL!

The Harvest is Plenteous ~ DeVonne Reed

MY house is full
But MY fields are empty
Who will go and work for ME today?


Matthew 9:37-38 KJV

37. Then saith HE unto HIS disciples, The HARVEST truly is PLENTEOUS but the labourers are FEW;

38. PRAY ye therefore the Lord of the HARVEST that HE will SEND forth labourers into HIS HARVEST.

Tell someone, about Jesus, today!

Tell them, that HE LOVES THEM!

Tell them there
is still power in HIS BLOOD!

Tell them, HE IS THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE!

Today
is the day of Salvation!

Matthew 24:44  NLT
YOU ALSO  MUST  BE READY ALL THE TIME, FOR THE SON OF MAN WILL COME WHEN LEAST EXPECTED. 


READY OR NOT JESUS IS COMING!

HE Knows My Heart ~ DeVonne Reed




You know...we may never know, what someone is dealing with, facing or in the midst of, at this very moment.

Others may find fault, maybe, even judge our good intentions and totally misunderstand our words.

But...Today, I will be grateful that God understands. HE knows all about me.
You see, HE knows my heart.

PERFECT PEACE! NO Doubt or Confusion! ~ DeVonne Reed

Isaiah 26:3. NIV
3. YOU WILL KEEP IN PERFECT PEACE THOSE WHOSE MINDS ARE STEADFAST (STAYED), BECAUSE THEY TRUST IN YOU.
4. Trust in the LORD (JEHOVAH) FOREVER,  FOR THE LORD, THE LORD HIMSELF, IS THE ROCK ETERNAL (STRENGTH).

I choose peace! I have PERFECT PEACE!
PEACE: HARMONIOUS; freedom from disputes.

I have kept my mind focused on the Lord. Because I recognized these two things were "trying" to overtake my mind and enter my spiritman.

DOUBT:
1. Doubt, uncertainty, incertitude, dubiety, doubtfulness, dubiousness,
(All meaning) the state of being UNSURE of something.
2. Doubt, dubiousness, doubtfulness, question UNCERTAINTY about the TRUTH or FACTUALITY or existence of something.


CONFUSION:
1. Disorder resulting from failure to behave predictibly.
2. State characterized by a lack of clear and orderly thought and behavior.
Example: "A confusion of impressions."
3. Feeling of embarrassment that leaves you confused.
4. Act of causing a disorderly combination of elements with IDENTITIES LOST and distinctions blended.
Example: "The confusion of tongues at the Tower of Babel."
5. A mix up. A mistake that results from taking one thing to be another.


PLEASE, don't misunderstand my intention here.
BUT...Don't ASSUME YOU KNOW anything about what the Holy Spirit was speaking to me. REMEMBER, HE was speaking directly to ME, not you.
Make "NO MISTAKE, I COMPLETELY, understood what was spoken."

I want to say to those of you, that are still trying to "figure out" or think you have the interpretation of HIS WORDS TO ME...LISTEN...You do not understand, and don't know where the source of this doubt and confusion stemmed from.

I have never DOUBTED MY GOD! I have never doubted HIS WORD! NOR have I ever been CONFUSED when HE SPEAKS. I am HIS sheep, I KNOW HIS VOICE. The stranger I DO NOT and I WILL NOT FOLLOW. I FOLLOW HIM!

I have been "surrounded" by this "doubt and confusion" in a place where it should NEVER BE ALLOWED!

Insomuch, HOLY SPIRIT instructed me that I needed to... NO, wait, excuse me, HE TOLD ME, I HAD TO SEPARATE MYSELF from it and those whom it was coming through. It came through, People.

At the time, I did not, and I could not UNDERSTAND this!
Having to do this was very hard for me, BECAUSE I LOVE ALL PEOPLE, and these PEOPLE ARE people, whom I LOVE very much! But, they were THE source of my feeling, so much doubt and confusion.
HE told me to be aware and observe, my surroundings. I did. Listening and watching. I heard one thing and watching them DO the complete opposite! This brought much doubt and confusion, from them.
It was not and is not within me but, it definitely had surrounded me!

However, Holy Spirit SPOKE ,"be still!"
"BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD." I listened. I usually, do not tell anyone of my private time, alone with the Father and I speak this as humbly as I know how. I am definitely not patting myself on the back here, but I was extremely and deeply effected by this, so much in fact...I have spent hours on my face crying out to GOD, for the understanding, of it. I have wept, and shed many tears and prayed many prayers because of this. Being still there, in HIS PRESENCE, it was then HE SPOKE PEACE and HE gave me CLARITY! With CLARITY, I have seen clearly, with my spiritual eyes and heard with my spiritual ears.

I needed confirmation, and I received it! I am very thankful.
Thank GOD! There are still true prophets in our land! Setting things straight and back in order, clearly HEARING the WORD OF THE LORD, and are not afraid to speak what "Thus SAITH THE LORD!" Thereby, exposing the WRONG (EVIL). Speaking the TRUTH (GOOD). Giving RIGHT direction to all who are willing to hear.
Without any DOUBT or CONFUSION. I heard, GOD TRULY confirming HIS WORD, to me!


Romans 12:18, 21. KJV.
18. "IF" it be possible, as much as lieth in you, (it depends on you) LIVE PEACEABLY WITH ALL MEN. (Everyone).
21. Be NOT overcome of evil, but overcome evil with Good.
