Michelle's Anointing Oils today: Magnify Your Purpose


This morning when I went into my quiet time, I was led to the book of Habakkuk.  

I went with wonder as this is one of those “little” books of the Bible that aren’t frequented as much as some of the others.   Yes, I have been there before, but my mind was open and looking for what I was to receive today For Such A Time As This insight. 

Well, as always, I was expanded and encouraged.  

The purpose of this book:  To show that God is still in control of the world despite the apparent triumph of evil. 

It was written by the Prophet Habakkuk between 612 and 588 B.C.

During this time Babylon was becoming the dominant world power and Judah would soon feel Babylon’s destructive force.  

Judah’s last four kings were wicked men who rejected God and oppressed their own people.  Babylon invaded Judah twice before finally destroying it in 586. It was a time of fear, oppression, persecution, lawlessness, and immorality.  

Hmmm, sound like a similar scenario?

Habakkuk couldn’t understand why God seemed to do nothing about the wickedness in society.  Then he realized that faith in God alone would supply the answers to his questions.   

We have the same spirit of faith as Prophet Habakkuk. Where are we choosing to put our faith? 

Instead of questioning the ways of God, we should know that we can trust His ways. He loves us and promised to never leave us, to cover us, to supply our needs, to give us the desires of our heart. We should realize that God is totally just, and we should have faith that he is in control and that one day evil will be utterly destroyed. 

In the meantime, we need to trust Him and do our part.   We were created with a purpose, a calling on our life. No one can do what we were specifically created to do. Only we can fulfill our role and purpose. He can get things done without us, but do we really want to miss out on the joy and blessing of being outside of his will? 

Here are some ponder points:

  • Is what I am doing continuing Jesus ministry that he started while on earth for us to continue? 
  • Am I stewarding and shepherding to my greatest ability? 
  • Do I have my vision written down and posted where I can see? (Check out the vision resource area at StandingTheGap.com under the Life Advocate Toolbox Resource section.)
  • Am I walking in my life calling and purpose or am I interfering by trying to walk in someone else’s and coming in second best? 
  • Is the way I am living my day to day life strengthening and encouraging others or depleting and weakening others? 

As always, I share from the love of my heart. I am passionate about Standing The Gap from where you are to where you can and want to be.   

Be Blessed!

Anguish? Limbo? Obliterated? Sorcery?

Anguish? Limbo? Obliterated? Sorcery?
Our current social challenge is stirring up so many different feelings and emotions.  

For some, this is a time of Ecstacy. A time of being open and willing to accept the truth.
A time of trust. A time of being Divinely guided.
A time of Euphoria. A time of your head and heart being connected.
A time of growth and expansion of knowing and being a better you. 

For others, this is a time of Anguish.  A time of suffering. 
A time of Limbo. A time of waste. A time of no direction.  
A time of Obliteration. A time of loss of identity. A time of nothingness.
A time of sorcery.

As I have shared in the past, our body has an intricate alarm system that alerts us so we can come against the areas that are breached and take control. 

We are our own best advocates because we know and hear our body like no one else can.
Even better!  
Are you ready for this?

We 
get
 to
CHOOSE!!!

We get to choose life or choose death.  

We even have tools that we can use and master to help us succeed in everything thing we do.  

Today's video gives some tips on how to use one of the Tools in our Life Toolbox to help overcome the negative and firmly stand in the positive mental and emotional stance. 

This just makes me want to dance! 
(Which my dancing tends to bring laughter ... and in my books laughter is good especially when I'm laughing with you.)

I'm choosing to thrive during this time of fear hype and rights tampering decisions made by our leaders.
I'm choosing to live freely.
For me, this is a nesting time.  
A time to clean out the clutter. Time clutter, physical clutter, emotional clutter.  
It's a time of Freedom gain.  
It's a time of relationship restoration and restoring.
It's a time of honing and mastering current skills and new skills.
It's a time of nurtured growth.
And
I'm TOTALLY THRIVING and adoring helping others break free from the past and thriving themselves. 

How are you choosing to use and walk out this gift of "time out" that has been given to you? 
Post your comments, I adore hearing where you are at and how I can encourage and support you.
