To Be A Leader

Leaders must be clear where their center is, their core, their beliefs and values. They must know the issues at hand...then be strong, confident and lead the way through the storm. IT TAKES COURAGE OF CONVICTION!

Faith and Grace

Grace gives us the promise, the  blessings of God.
However,  without Faith, we can't  access you trust enough to receive the blessing that God has already made available? Yes, you are worthy.

Yeshua's Promise

Yeshua...Servant and Savior.
He fulfilled one blessing by giving us eternal forgiveness/pardon from our sins, by the shedding of His blood because  He loves us, not because we deserves it.
He will bless us again by returning as the Prince of Peace. He also said "Baruch haba B'shem Adonai" let's  make Him and His promise known to all...and remember...
Sha'alu  Shalom Yahrusheliam! There must be peace in Jerusalem,  so please, pray for that peace. Shalom and Blessings,... Deborah Mullan/ IvyLaneLifestyling

Purposeful Clarity...Cut Out the Noise!

Lord, we pray that we hear Your Word so that we may have purposeful clarity and think and do according to Your will. Let us not be confused and deafened by the noise that is of this world or evil. Let us be Still in the Peace of Your Shalom  and Trust in You. Amen and Amen. A thought and prayer from: Deborah Mullan/ IvyLaneLifestyling

Will and Willingness

Good, Exceptional and Perfect...God's will for us only requires us to aim high. He doesn't ask for perfection,  just that we have the willingness to strive towards it His name.

Draw Close and Take Shelter in Him!

Version (NIV)

Psalm 91
1 Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.[a]
2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
    my God, in whom I trust.”
3 Surely he will save you
    from the fowler’s snare
    and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers,
    and under his wings you will find refuge;
    his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night,
    nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
    nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
    ten thousand at your right hand,
    but it will not come near you.
8 You will only observe with your eyes
    and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
    and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
    no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
    to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
    so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
    you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 “Because he[b] loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
    I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
    I will be with him in trouble,
    I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
    and show him my salvation.”
Praise be to our Lord...may we always remember that we are His bride and He longs to draw us closer to Him in His most high and intimate place...His heart. Trust and be bold in His presence... in the name of the Star Shalom, the Prince of Peace, our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen and Amen

First fruits offerings in the High Holy days

Isaiah 55:6 says call on the Lord while He is near. Have you given any thought as to how that influences  you, your actions and why?
We understand and are greatful that He is with us always. Why then, at certain times in God's calender, is he closer to us? This month is one example of those appointed times when His blessings and mercy are shown to us much more clearly and abundantly.
To sum this answer up, we turn to the ancient Hebrew. Three times a year God opens the windows of heaven and He moves closers to us. The first and most important is the first fruits offering which allows us to return to the city of refuge. It is happening now, in the Hebrew month of Elul.
We are entering the beginning of the High Holy days of the year. Passover,Pentecost are the two other times we honor Him in a special way and now, in the month of Elul (which takes us into Rosh Hashanah,  Yom Kippur and the Feast of Tabernacles) we are in the most Holy time and God blesses us according to how we have lived up to His expections.
These are appointments on God's calender. We are in, but not of this world...and the first fruits offering allows us to return to the city of refuge...allows us to return back to Him.
It is then we receive our blessings.
Have our lives made enough of a difference that will allow for those blessings? You might want to think deeply about this. Enjoy the coming High Holy days, but do it with great respect, reverence, humility, and sublimation.
This is the time for repentance...
Make sure your first fruits offerings are worthy. Don't  come empty handed.
May the blessings unto you be many ...
Praise to our Lord Jesus... our Messiah, for delivering us and making us worthy of these blessings so we may receive God's gifts.
Deborah Mullan

One day!

One day, at a time hidden from us, we will lay down in His Shalom and peace will reign...B"H
Amen and Amen.

Serving with joy.

Go about the business the Lord has given you today, no matter how humble or inconsequential  you believe it to be, at this time. Whatever you must do, do it with  delight and pleasure. Do not look at it as a suffering you must endure, but as a joy to love and serve. Jesus suffered and paid for the grace you receive.
Jesus also washed the feet of Peter and others at the last supper. There, He represented himself from a place of humility not pride. Jesus also said that the greatest amongst you is the servant of all. #agapelove

You matter, guard your heart...

Do you ever meet up with  friends or family members and feel terrible about yourself because of something that came out of their mouths? Perhaps you hear statements that are meant to seemingly correct you, but only   strike hard upon your heart. No, it wasn't only some random aspect of you they was hurtful to your sense  of well being and purpose . My question to you is, why are you allowing them into your life? Yes, you may have to tolerate them being present,  but you don't need to put such a high value on what they say about you. You may wonder if they may be correct and you may be less than you should be. My answer is simple really. If they are coming from a good place and are a blessing in your life, a relationship with them won't  require you to tap dance on egg shells in order to spend time with them and not feel wounded. If you know people like this, it's OK to to walk around them and get them out of your way. You may think, that's  not very Christian. However, it does not serve you or God to be controlled  and manipulated by someone. There are people in this world who mean your harm. They may be in great pain themselves. Pray and be an example to them...but don't be their victim. Turn the light on and remove the darkness. Proverbs 4:23 says ...above all else guard your heart,  for everything you do flows from it...
Your thoughts are powerful and  you may end up a reflection of those thoughts which were instilled in you by someone speaking something other than the  truth of God's word. You are a blessed child of God. Turn on the light. No person can turn on darkness, it's  not possible, choose otherwise. Keep in mind that you don't  need to hate them,  that would be wrong. Just don't  give them power over your life. Walk on knowing you are a valuable part of God's intentions. Keep busy with the wish to be a blessing to others. There is much inside of you that is worthy and good. Can't you feel it inside your bones? Make your life and the life of others rich by making your gifts come alive. Remember, the opinion of those, who seem to be so perfect and laud that perfection over your head, are nothing more that illusion. Believe in yourself and have Faith in God.

Be a blessing.

God's great hand reaches out and puts us where we must's  no accident. It's our Father's love for us making things right. It's a great moment when we stop asking for a blessing and become one. Deborah Mullan/ IvyLaneLifestyling
