There’s no shame in lookin’ like a fool when I give you what I can’t keep to take a hold of you – United Pursuit #HeadToTheHeart
My sheep respond to my voice, and I know who they are.
They follow me, I give them eternal life, and they will never perish,
and no one will snatch them out of my hand. – John 10:27-28
Sometimes you know, other times you have no clue, yet you are absolutely certain. When you follow that voice, the rewards are limitless.
To Know (def)
be aware of through observation, inquiry, or information:
We aren’t serving the Lord by putting up walls and being afraid. He is covering us and His peace gives us the permission to rest, be held, be protected, be sure and be still.
The verse I’ve been clinging to this week…
Philippians 4:6-8New Living Translation (NLT)
6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
8 And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.
Being Still & lookin’ like a fool
So the Holy Spirit had to remind me of this song several times during & after Revelation Wellness retreat as Satan attempted to call me a fool and accused me of looking ridiculous & unqualified… I’m NOT SORRY FOR MY PASSION MY FREEDOM OR FOR BEING A FOOL FOR JESUS!!!!
I had a really crazy encounter with the Holy Spirit during the black out worship service.
As we sang I felt Him walk up behind me and tap my shoulder. I had one hand on my heart and the other was raised in worship. He walked around me held the hand that was raised and embraced me. It literally felt like He picked me up and placed my feet on top of His and began to dance with me like when you see a daddy place His daughters feet on top of his so that he can show her the steps. He whispered in my ear ‘it’s ok baby we can dance as long as you as you’d like’… And we danced.
Just then David Freeman started ministering the ‘it’s not your fault’ message that broke of years of sexual abuse chains I hadn’t realized I was carrying.
During the final celebration Alisa Keeton called an invitation to anyone that felt lead to praise dance & again the Holy Spirit gave me permission to dance only this time it was a victorious dance of release!!! Family when His glory falls it breaks every stronghold even the ones you didn’t know you had! It is for freedom that He has set us free! Those who don’t move don’t know they have chains!!! I dare you to move and become a fool for Jesus!!!

Cultivate patience – PODCAST from Revelation Wellness
I don’t need more internet. I need more you. The world is chipping away at my heart. I’ve lost my joy. I need more you. More intimacy means into-me-you-see. I want more of you, not because I have worked my way into your presence but because I have rested in the truth that you are my rampart and my shield. You save me from the fowlers snare. I’m returning to delight myself in you.- Amen
