PASSION IS IN FASHION

Hi Warrior,
This song, SHHH, is an “impromptu” recording from our jam session the other night. I wrote it not based on prurient interests or about my husband , but because I see and hear things: Husbands too busy or distracted to tend to their mate’s needs (BTW, someone else is always willing), and wives so busy bickering and complaining, they fail to notice that they are no longer heard-And so begins the disconnect.

Remember the flame that once was? It didn’t go out on its own. Reignite the passion and everything else will fall into place. If you don’t feel a flame, then pray for an ember. And if you don’t feel like praying for an ember, then pray in the Spirit (which you should do anyway) because HE is your Counselor, your Mighty Advocate, and as such, will always lead you towards the perfect will of GOD for your life.

10 Then He arose from there and came to the region of Judea by the other side of the Jordan. And multitudes gathered to Him again, and as He was accustomed, He taught them again. 2 The Pharisees came and asked Him, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?” testing Him. 3 And He answered and said to them, “What did Moses command you?” 4 They said, “Moses permitted a man to write a certificate of divorce, and to dismiss her.” 5 And Jesus answered and said to them, “Because of the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept. 6 But from the beginning of the creation, God ‘made them male and female.’ 7 ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, 8 and the two shall become one flesh’; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh. 9 Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.” Mark 10:1-9

I know what it feels like to want to quit, and the minute your mind starts going down that path, guess who’s right there with you to push it along?  I’ve said many times that you can justify any wrong with little effort, but fact still remains, The LORD GOD hates divorce:

“For the Lord God of Israel says that He hates divorce, for it covers one’s garment with violence,” Says the Lord of hosts. “Therefore take heed to your spirit, that you do not deal treacherously.” Malachi 2:16

Dear lovely, I’m certainly not encouraging anyone to remain in an abusive or adulteress  situation, but rather, I am speaking to married couples who have just grown weary in love: There’s nothing better on the other side because after the newness of lust dissipates, what’s left are the same ancient-old issues of humanity. Oh yes indeed, there’s nothing new under the sun..

“8 All things are full of labor; man cannot express it. The eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing. 9 That which has been is what will be, that which is done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun.”  Ecclesiastes 1:8-9

HERE’S MY NUGGET TO YOU: Do not become separated; mind, spirit, soul, or physical, for if so, by one, each, you may be lost and not found-And how sad is that!

Until next time,
Stir the fire a little 🔥

LITTLE BIRDS

“Do not curse the king, even in your thought; do not curse the rich, even in your bedroom; for a bird of the air may carry your voice, and a bird in flight may tell the matter.”  Ecclesiastes 10:20

Be careful lovelies, not to utter things of little to no value. In my industry of entertainment, people are so busy bashing, and stomping, and accusing, that they have become ABSOLUTELY FRUITLESS: A bad tree cannot bear good fruit, but, a good tree can go bad! While I am a considerate listener, I refuse to ever be drawn into another’s drama. I hate gossip, I hate backbiting, I hate backstabbers, and LORD knows, I loathe a busybody! If you are busy working out your own salvation with “fear and trembling” you will not have time to notice (or care) what anyone else is doing.

“12 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; 13 for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.
14 Do all things without complaining and disputing, 15 that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, 16 holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain.” Philippians 2:12-16

I am a nice girl, a fun girl, a loyal girl, but I will not be drawn into anything that requires me to break my prestigious rank. We are warriors in the Army of JESUS and set above the standards of the world – Soooo, put a smile in your heart and wear it where all can see it! Remember, LOVE covers (blankets) a multitude of ill will ツ 

Have a beautiful week!
Love, DestinyB / CYU

THE OPENING ACT

stageYOU

 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.”  Matt 5:14

When I was out for a run yesterday, the LORD spoke these words to me, “YOU ARE NOT AN OPENING ACT, YOU ARE THE HEADLINER”

I chuckled and agreed but as I continued on my way, I realized that the LORD was not specifically referring to me but to HIS people.

Are you an opening act? No, dear lovely, you are not an opening act, but rather, you are the headliner with a limited amount of time to dazzle the world with your gifts & talents before you return to the earth.

“All go to one place: all are from the dust, and all return to dust” Ecclesiastes 3:20

Dear shiny thing, the world awaits your arrival and as the LORD puts it, “You are the light of the world” and the world needs your light, not the other way around!

I wrote a song (off of our first CD) titled, “A SONG UNSUNG” and if I can find a download, I’ll come back and post it here, either way, the song is about my biggest fear and that is squandering the relevance of time and talents. As you, I’ve only been given a short amount of time to achieve the things that are my purpose, and to be frank, I need several more lives in order to accomplish all that I enjoy, but, as I press forward towards the mark of my high calling, the things that truly make me happy move up to the front, and the other things find their place behind those.  If I have the time left, I will do a variety of things, but, if I don’t, I will do what I am created to do, called to do, asked to do, blessed to do, and honored to do..Will you?

We are each a facet of GOD’S Glory (and sense of humor), and we are only given a moment in time before we return to our creator – The choice is up to you what you will do with your remaining days but I hope and pray it is in line with your FATHER’S brilliant design:

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5

Are we all prophets? No, but we are all a unique expression of our CREATOR’S  character, and therefore, HE speaks through the work of our hands. So, go proclaim the greatness of GREAT GOD JEHOVAH and conquer your land. The clock ticks, and time moves forward whether you participate or not.

I used to think that I was necessary to the House of David and the LORD’S PLAN, and would threaten HIM that I was giving up my calling when I was upset about certain injustices, but as I matured, I came to know that while it saddens our FATHER when HIS kids accept less than HIS best, there’s always a remnant willing and waiting.

“When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.” 1 Corinthians 13:11

I want mine, and I want you to have yours, so man up, get up, wipe off, and march on, because your audience awaits ♛

HAPPY EARTH DAY

8 But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. 9 With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the similitude of God. 10 Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so. 11 Does a spring send forth fresh water and bitter from the same opening? 12 Can a fig tree, my brethren, bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Thus no spring yields both salt water and fresh. 13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom. 14 But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth.  James 3:8-14

I sat down to write/right about Earth Day 2018 but instead the Holy Spirit directed me to address something else..

We’re all on a journey; some, are nearing the end, other’s, just beginning, and I’m not referring to life & death (although sometimes it feels like death), but what I am referring to is the journey that leads to the door where destiny and preparation intersect, and your, “Now”, begins. I like to refer to it as, “Your visitation”.

First of all, I will say that I understand, sometimes a little boasting seems necessary and maybe even fitting. After all, who but you knows how much you have endured to be where you are at this moment?!  BUT, on your way to your journey’s end, keep your tongue quiet because loose lips bring destruction to the truth, which of itself, should be spoken sparingly.

A talebearer reveals secrets, but he who is of a faithful spirit conceals a matter. Proverbs 11:13

Warrior, the narrow path is a hard passage at times, but will ultimately produce all you have believed for: The wide way becomes bottle-necked at any time and you have no way out but to endure its troubles. I’m going to write an entire teaching on this subject because the law of reciprocity is real, and no amount of begging, crying, or demanding, will cut short its sentence.

Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.” Matthew 7:13

I know it’s hard to watch the unrighteous prosper when you have done all to stand on a promise yet (but about) to be fulfilled. I get it! Even more difficult is trying to explain why you are where you are, and not where some suppose you should be. If you listen to the flesh, it will give way to self-doubt, which brings all kinds of thoughts, which  in turn, encourages the mouth to speak, which may destroy all that you have so diligently endured. It is possible to fail, even now.

YOU CHOOSE: You may trust in the flesh, which agitates one’s sense of right or wrong, or, you can trust by faith, which you know, never forsakes.

“For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish.” Galatians 5:17

Again, I say, on your way to the journey’s end, keep your tongue quiet; quarantine it if you must    YOU’RE ALMOST THERE…Happy Earth Day lovelies!

Love, Destiny /C Y U

HE ROLLED OUT THE RED CARPET

Recently, I had the displeasure of seeing someone I know go from a place of honor (for him), to basically losing everything and for no good reason other than self-sabotage. This person had come from a rough several years but with prayer and application, he was able to obtain a stable job, a nice place to live, and even found a girl who could see his potential and not his past. In all, the LORD was very good to him, and in a very short passing of time, this man’s life was on a beautiful path.

I can’t dwell on it and it’s really not even my business except he involved us by asking for prayer prior to, so it makes me sad because the LORD answered our prayers, and unlike some of us who are asked to endure much more before we receive, his blessings were almost instantaneous.

“Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.”Prov 16:18

I won’t go into details but suffice it to say, arrogance, pride, fear, and choice caused this beautiful gift from the LORD to decay bit by bit until he was left with nothing but his bad choices. To this day, he refuses to accept any blame.  Yes, indeed,  pride does come before the fall..

“Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall” 1 Cor 10:12

Satan is sneaky and knows just how to infiltrate the arrogance of man: Let us never forget where we came from and how we got there. There isn’t enough talent in the world that can set you as high as favor from the LORD GOD, nor is there a desert so desolate of one who once knew the way and turned..

“So he answered and said to me: “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ Says the Lord of hosts.” Zech 4:6

Keep the WORD alive and living, and you will never stray..

“For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12
