No matter what you’re going through and no matter what challenges you, or your loved ones may be facing; when you remember your divine connection AS ONE – Love, Light, and Gracious support is accessed and you begin to claim your birthright.
These “storms” are never for our testing but to show us “How fortified we are in Him.“ We will see when squeezed what comes out. That just let’s us know is it in love or in fear. Then handle with tender loving care and know the solution is right near by.
We can resist and hold on to control or release control and know there is a bigger picture that we need to SEE. If we are weary it is because we trust our strength. Trust HIM and you will surely soar.
We continue to ask for the LIGHT to shine for our Soul to be shown Peace and Rest. We are promised there is joy and peace when we BELIEVE. Our natural eyes may not always see this. YOUR spiritual eyes though will notify your heart and your heart will notify your reflection.
Christ IN us is the Force of our Source that is always by grace and mercy. Perfect LOVE (Christ) throws out ALL fears because the PRESENCE of LOVE is THERE.
May your eyes see and your heart know this love so amazing.
There are tokens of His Love to be discovered each day!
In Genesis – He said, “By MYSELF have I sworn these things.
As we have received the Mercy of God it says that we faint not. The Covenant of Mercy is in place for God’s sovereignty to rule and reign in truth.
“And let us not be weary in well doing; for in due season we will reap if we faint not.” Galatians 6:9
This word “NOT’ added after “we faint not” – is there because it is an adverb of negation meaning No – Not – Never will we faint. Why, because He has promised He will do all these things Himself and working together for the good of all in His Love. He will manifest His promise of Christ in each and every man. He will not – no – never fail not one word will fall void but every word producing fruit unto eternal life.
This word “in well” doing means beautiful by reason of purity of heart and life, handsome, excellent, eminent, choice, precious, useful, suitable, commendable, admirable, noble, AS ONE ought to be.
Let me remind you we looked at this word “goodness” of God and goodness means to be righteous, upright in heart and life. It was Jesus’ job, purpose and reason for being sent. He completed it and we reap the benefits. This is unconditional love in eternal motion 24/7 – 365!
When I turn to taste & see then my mouth gives thanks & praise unto the King of Glory! What we believe is what we repeat. There is joy and peace when we believe the truth.
Christ IN us IS already all things we will ever need & everything that pleases the Father perfectly for perfect peace to reign in us. We can resist and refuse to be comforted but His Love is still ruling and reigning because we are ONE and He cannot deny Himself.
Now being Restored-Renewed-Refreshed by the Power & Presence of God IN me I AM healed, delivered & rich. He is my treasure in this earthen vessel – CHRIST is the Power, Presence, Portion, Purpose & Provision for all I AM today.
Now well able to rest & have my being in Joy & Peace.
Always-N-joy because what He started … He finished!
… and for all of us in this beautiful morning! Joanne
Are you wondering where or when you will really rest?
Walking today in the mall after work – I stopped to look into one of the store windows and over heard voices talking about being tired of all the responsibilities that came with getting married.
He said, “I’m tired of being the one to give and to share, wondering if anyone really cares. This rat race has become to much to bear and just a little cooperation would be nice. Where can we stop tonight for something to help me get some much needed rest?”
Do you know where to rest your heart and your head? Is the burden more than you can sometimes bear?
I think we have heard more than enough times what Jesus has to say. “Come unto Me, all that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and you shall find rest for your souls”
But do we know what He was talking about when He stated, “Take My Yoke upon You?”
His yoke is being joined together AS ONE Spirit. He has reminded the disciples the Spirit of Glory and of God has rested upon you as Father placed Him on Me. There is a river that flows refreshing you from the very Presence of the Lord.
We can see this truth in Matthew 19:6 … What God HATH JOINED together let NO MAN put asunder. The word JOINED here means to Fasten to MY YOKE – united & joined together – Being joined to the Lord IN ONE Spirit is HIS YOKE that is easy & light!! Mark 10:9
Turning towards Him and leaning into what He has placed inside of us on purpose is Christ the anointing and the Holy Presence of our Father. Where ever He is there it is Holy.
Right there IN Christ He has you in a fixed position of rest. Ask Him tonight to help you relax and be refreshed as you go to sleep knowing He is there. The blessing is sure and ours for the asking with joy and peace promised when we believe.
Always-N-Joy with Love still amazing, Joanne
Good Morning! Just a quick nugget to share with you this Thursday morning…
He is our Sabbath Day and He said Keep the Sabbath Holy – He is Holy -The Root is Holy which is what produces the fruit on the branches.
If the Root BE holy the Branches BE Holy too — so we are to dress it and keep it holy!! He’s got us covered – the root word for covered is TO BE HID -where? IN HIM who is Holy!
The Former Rain was when the Manna Fell in the Wilderness for them every morning. The Bread of His Presence & they said, what is it?
The Latter Rain is is the Message of His Righteousness & people who know what it is.
Christ in US is the Bread of His Presence, His Glory and the knowledge of it is Christ now covering the whole earth.
When He reigns it Pours!! Always-N-Joy, Joanne

I was walking around my apt complex to walk off some extra weight, stress from work and grief therapy for me since Pat died. Being single again was not on my day-timer. Our apartments have a special perk benefit. They pick up our trash curbside Mon-Wed-Fridays.
Each morning when I walked I was able to SEE the trash laying out for pick-up. Some things were not even in bags, as the complex requires. Some bags the birds were picking at. The smell of some…well you can imagine. I began to appreciate this benefit and the one WHO picks it up for us and takes it to the dumpster to save us the walk. I had wondered if anyone ever said THANK YOU. I had this PUSH in me to bring my permanent Sharpie Marker to write on the bags and boxes left out…THANK YOU with smiley faces. I walked for 2 weeks more without doing that, because I thought how silly if the neighbors saw me writing on trash.
Well, one Friday I started my walk and got about 1/2 block away and saw some trash that really I wouldn’t even pick up if that was my job. That was really raising a question in my mind and the faithfulness it showed by this young man dedicated to his job. I went back home to get the marker and said, How silly for me to worry if someone should ask …I am only writing THANK YOU on their trash. Well, I giggled and had fun and was so blessed to Thank Someone. I then realized how committed and doing the job that so many of us forgot could be offensive and reek making it harder for Francisco.
I went home after writing on all the trash bags and boxes left outside that day and wrote a Note on Paper and taped it to mine. Thank YOU for keeping us cleaned up all week!! I wish I was bird that day to SEE his face and wondered did he notice, (who can miss a smiley face) and what did he think? But, I knew in my heart that GOD noticed and I realized anew HE is never afraid of the trash we put in His hands each day. Our mistakes, losses or the smell of the attitudes we speak in hurt or pain. He shows us His Love and Light clearing the way again, removing the trash I put out for HIM.
Hope this finds you Always-N-Joying each moment! Joanne
In our lives a storm can appear suddenly. Stop long enough to throw these anchors to stabilize and hold steady – this too shall pass.
These can be used to stabilize any Relation-ship, Fellow-ship,
Champion-ship, Citizen-ship, Partner-ship, Court-ship, Disciple-ship, Distributor-ship, Friend-ship, Leader-ship, Member-ship, and Workman-ship.
1.) Christ IN us – Our place there is guaranteed in rest & peace.
Philemon 1:6, 2Cor.4:6, Jude 1:24
2.) Our Union “AS ONE” with Him – Joint-Heir
1Corinthians 6:17 and 12:13
3.) His Covenants – What He has in place to remind us exactly how HE is keeping us. Isaiah 54:10, Hebrews 13:20
4.) Race Gift – Righteousness which is Christ in us.
Romans 3:24, Romans 5:17-21
5.) Mercy – His Covenant of mercy is in place for our unbelief.
With God ALL things are possible because we are rooted and grounded in the Love of God.
2Timothy 2:13, Romans 11:32, Psalms 23:6, Romans 15:13
Psalms 23:6 “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.”
Philemon 1:6 “That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which IS IN you IN Christ Jesus.”
Romans 5:21 “That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through Righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord” Christ IS the Righteousness of God.
Romans 15:13 “Now the God of Hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound IN Hope, through the power of the Spirit of Holiness.”
Jude 1:24 “Now unto Him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the Presence of His Glory with exceeding joy.”
What kind of adventure are you living?
What kind of life are you hoping for?
The treasure hunt that our Heavenly Father has placed here on purpose for us brings joy and peace when we seek to find Him. The LIFE is Christ and the tokens also called signs are like stones of remembrance or trail markers. The joy is finding these pointers that have been set in the WAY and the TRUTH all aglow showing us the Father and His Love. Love notes all over our days and nights.
I know in the natural I have left plenty of love notes in lunches packed, on sidewalks written with chalk, and even put love notes on letters mailed out for every mailman to remember WHO they are.
One day it hit me — if my heart is so overflowing with Love to put out visible signs for the ones I love, so they can remember – it was a DUH moment with smiles. My Father in heaven, invisible to my natural eyes must have a “visible token” for me to find too!
That day – I squealed, “let the bragging of God’s adventure begin.” Then I started looking for love He placed on purpose for me. Remember, they are there for you too!!
You choose what you gather each day. Whatever you focus on you are sure to find it. What have you been looking for? Or should I ask, what are you expecting to find? The harvest is Christ and fruit always unto eternal life. If you focus on the wrong man instead of marking the perfect man (Psalms 37:37) you gather in vain.
When I travel and minister talking to others they tell me: I’m stressed out, stretched to their limits, working to hard, scared about the future, out of balance, can’t trust anyone these days, leaning into chaos and wishing for more well being, ease, lightness, fun, peace and grace in their lives.
I am looking for Righteousness, Peace and Joy. My King who is Holy, Righteous, Loving, my Faithful Witness, Glorious, Tenderhearted, Merciful, and full of Goodness. That’s just a small portion of what I have found all over this trail. He silenced the false witness and liar by setting the presence of Himself within us.
I took a second look at the Cross and found the Light shining like pieces of silver and gold rocks along the path I am on, for the renown of His Holy Name.
He put forth His Hand upon the ROCK of Christ and He overturns every mountain for me and you, by the ROOTS of His Holiness. They all did drink the same spiritual drink because they drank from that same spiritual Rock which followed them all of their days. That Rock today is still called Christ.
It’s always been this unconditional LOVE is FOR YOU!! Yes, finding His Peace that matters! Always-N-Joy!! Joanne
