God has invited me, Julie True, to “infiltrate the earth with sounds of healing” through music, worship, creative sounds, prayer, words of scripture, words of hope and encouragement, and words of declaration that all spring from a heart that believes that God is good, and that He is willing and able to heal us – spirit, soul, and body.
I’ve accepted the invitation, and I’m moving forward, as God gives me favor and opens doors to take what I have in my hand, and pour it out. Would you like to join me?
In the past, I didn’t think that I had much to pour out, but I now know that it doesn’t really matter what I think. It just matters that I take what I have and pour it out! Like the story of the widow in 2 Kings 4: who took the little bit of oil that she had, gathered vessels to pour it into, and then the oil kept flowing as long as she had vessels. When she ran out of vessels, that’s when the oil ran out. So I’m here to pour into human vessels what God has given me.
After many years of leading worship in churches and in conferences; worshiping in public and in the closet, I have found that there is an underlying desire I have for every worship time that I am a part of: I want to help create an atmosphere where I, and anyone who wants to come along with me, can connect – spirit to spirit – with the Living God. When that happens, I believe that we bless the heart of our Papa God, and we personally are affected in deep and powerful ways that can change our lives forever.
When we worship our creator, savior, and the source of all life, out of an overflowing thankfulness to Him and a desire to honor Him, our eyes are opened in new ways to the awesome love of God. Faith rises in our hearts, and many times we are healed – physically and spiritually. If you haven’t tried it before, then why not give it a try now? You’ll see what I mean.
Today is a new day….a new beginning. I’m so thankful that God’s mercies are new every morning. No matter what challenges I may have been faced yesterday, today is a new day.
In this season of my life, God has been reminding me of the incredible power my words have for creating either life or death. For years I thought I was fostering great lines of communication by talking with my husband and others about all of the problems of the day. Much later I realized that all that time, I had been sowing seeds of doubt, unbelief and negativity in my life…..NOT a great crop to sow.
Since that time of revelation, I have been in the process of re-training myself to think and speak differently……to call things that are not, as though they are, and to make declarations of faith. It’s been amazing to see what happens when I make my words line up with God’s truth, and with God’s desires for my life. I’m beginning to see a whole new type of crop being grown in my life….faith, confidence in God’s goodness, and a “knowing” that He is working ALL things together for good in my life.
Sometimes I find myself beginning to listen again to the voices of fear and doubt in my head, or the replaying of tapes telling me all that I’m not and never will be. I have found that this usually happens when I’ve been isolated from life-giving people for too long, out of touch with the Word of God, or when I’ve stopped serving and helping others.
All it takes is a wakeup call in my spirit, though, and the response of my spoken words of faith and life…. and my path is refreshed and reset.
So here’s my prayerful declaration for today…
Thank you for your faithfulness to me, God.
I am expecting good things for my life today.
I’m your child, and I know that you love me with the heart of a Father.
You are good and your love endures forever.
