New Beginnings with ONE Resolution

Every day can be a new beginning and a fresh start but somehow in this world most people look to Mondays and January 1st to begin again. I want to bring a 2nd look to help renew and refresh your memory and to explain how the work got done.

Still there are some who seem to repeatedly ask, “What new resolutions will I determine to habit each day this week or this year?” This mentality can keep us searching for what is wrong with me or what do I need to “do” instead of keeping our focus on what “has been done.”

I am so thankful for the love shown to me by Pastors Gary and Sandra Garner, Pastor Lynn, their family, and church body during the loss of my husband, Pat. The picture with the New Beginnings clock was a gift to me while I was there in Arkansas.

Pastor Gary said it well in his Six Steps to the Throne series and booklet. “By Him giving Himself for our sins, He delivered us from this present evil world. The cross was God’s way of delivering us, not only from who you used to be, but from the evil of this world.” Our old man was crucified with Christ to rest in the new creation of God in Him. (Galatians 6:14 & Galatians 1:3-4) We are here to rest in the NEW creation of God, created in righteousness and true holiness. Each day is fresh to rest in peace without fear.

Seeing what Jesus DID for us was once and for all, so we would know Him and settle down into His love. Jesus came confirming the royal mandates from the heart of God. It is said of the children of Israel that the greatest evil they did was not the golden calf but their unbelief. Praise God for Romans 11:32 & 33 … whereby He hath concluded us all unbelievers so that His Covenant of Mercy is enforced for all. How is this enforced? By the power of the same spirit that raised Him up out of the grave. The Spirit of Holiness is what Romans 1:4 states, which spirit with whom we are made partakers with Christ and share all things as a joint heir of salvation. (Hebrews 3:12)

It is time for us to reap what HE HAS sown for us.

While I was growing up, my dad worked for Voice of America and KTAR news. He would tell me it is always important for you to “consider the source” first. I took that to heart for my spiritual journey too. Our source is rooted and grounded in the love of God and His Spirit of Holiness. He is also called The Root of Jesse which is Jesus. This life in the Kingdom is lived from the inside out.

Trying to fix ourselves can be depressing. No matter how hard we try, it is impossible to be grateful and depressed at the same time. When we keep our focus on the New Creation Man in Christ, joy is experienced with a heart that is thankful. Looking and focusing on New Year resolutions can keep us looking at the wrong man. Trying to fix ourselves or feeling incomplete when He said, “I myself will satisfy your heart.” In Psalms 23 … the Lord is my Shepherd I shall not want  is translated I shall not need anything to complete me.

Did you forget where you walk and the beauty of His resting place? Recognize means to KNOW again. There is only ONE resolution for me each day in this New Creation Man of God. To Know Him and the Power of His Resurrection which is Christ the Spirit of Holiness. We are in a fixed position of rest in His holy habitation. May you know Him in a new and fresh way today and all year through. ~Always-N-Joy, Joanne

We Believe What we Tell Ourselves

Are you thinking about changing a few things this New Year?

The greatest turn around can be when you believe and repeat the Report of the Lord!

What is the report of the Lord? Wow … where do I begin? Well, He put His covenants in unshakable peace so we would walk before Him in love without fear bringing us much JOY. We can begin with God is WITH them and IN them to be FOR THEM. He is in us because He cannot and will not deny Himself. We are one joined unto the Lord and His Spirit.

The Ark of the Covenant went out before them in a 3 days Journey to search out a resting place FOR THEM. (Numbers 10:30)

A reconnaissance mission was sent to go ahead of them to spy out the land; 10 of them brought back an evil report. The word EVIL here means a report that says that land “eats up the inhabitants” to devour, burn up and consume by fire. Sound like a report of HELL. Just sayin’ … you go look at it and see what they should have come and said. (Numbers 13:32) The report should have been Jesus became as the wicked man on the Cross and David said in Psalms that the wicked was made as hell. Jesus conquered death, hell and the grave for us. Father said, I will even remember for you! The promised land is the Man Christ Jesus our Lord of Righteousness.

The other 2 witnesses came back saying “we are well able” to possess this land.

You have not as yet come to the REST and to the inheritance which the Lord your God GIVETH to you! (Deuteronomy 12:9) Why? Because they were believing the wrong report. The report of the Lord was … In Truth you HAVE been promised this Goodness!

You can change what you tell yourself and report to others. Good News Reporter!!
I am believing …

God’s tender mercies are over all His works. I am a work of His Heart!
I am walking before Him in Truth with great mercy and righteousness.
I am not just lovable but I am Love.
The Time is NOW.

May you begin this New Year 2013 with a new story and a new report. It is guarantee to be the wind that empowers you to reach a New Port of Call!! Always-N-Joy, Joanne

White as SNOW … HO HO HOLY!!


White as Snow!! There is no color white in snow. The white on snow is LIGHT and its highest intensity on matter. The leper who cried unclean went out from the King’s presence white as snow!! Now crying Ho HO HOLY!!! Yes, our Peace matters!!

2 Kings 5:27 & Isaiah 1:18

A STABLE Influence … EST. From the Beginning

It’s a Beautiful time of the year with all the decorations, nativities, choirs, and lights all aglow. What’s important is that Christ in our hearts is a Forever Season of lights, love, and peace resting at home in the beauty of His majesty. Joy and Peace are experienced when we believe. What are you believing? Our beliefs move us to action or stop us in fear. Do you really believe anything is possible with God residing on the inside of you this year?

Galatians 5:4 “Christ has become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are still trying to work to get holy by the laws you concur; doing this ye all are fallen from grace.” Holiness is your source of God’s nature, now rooted and grounded in His  love with holiness as your tap root. Wake up it’s Christmas morning every day … It’s time to believe and just receive. No struggle, no fight, no worries just Christ. Established in you from the beginning with an ending secured in light.

The Righteous Babe born in the manager was a visible expression of Father’s invisible eternal everlasting established truth. ESTABLISHED means to rise up, to stand righteous, to be fixed in a position of rest, to confirm, ratify, and give effect to.

Oh yeah, Glory to God in the highest!! Jesus was the visible expression that we can’t wreck holy and perfect. Father’s oath of one man to give us the gift of His birth and death. One man to Gift us with His raised up and awakened Life knowing of His Glory. Now and forever more covering the earth with peace and joy. The Great Sheet spoken of in Acts 10 & 11 is Christ and His glory covering the whole earth. So we can hear His One Voice of acceptance and that IN EDEN daily we are His delight.

From the Beginning Father has fixed in rest His Covenant oath that He has established Himself a Holy people. We are that royal priesthood and the holy nation called in faithfulness.Not by the works of our hands but by trusting and believing He is forever faithful. Jesus Christ the Lamb of God was slain before the foundation of the world, not just 2012 years ago.  This world and our beliefs in this world have made the Word of God to no effect because we would rather hold on to the traditions of men. The Covenant of Levi – Levi means in union as One Spirit … this Covenant oath by God Himself has been secured. Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection shows us that, “nothing can separate us from God who is love.” This is the Kingdom we  are to proclaim, His Righteous Gift of Christ, Peace on earth as it is in heaven, and Joy everlasting fixed in the Spirit of His Holiness as one new creation man of God.

I like to say, “You are already all ready!!” Hebrews 12:13 reminds us to trust He has “made straight” the path for our feet. STRAIGHT here means to be joined as one with His Spirit of Holiness. Verse still reading …lest that which is lame be turned out of the way but let it be healing!  Stand up IN CHRIST the Holy ONE of God. It is there IN Him and where He is there is Holy. There were still people in a fixed position of rest laying with a great multitude of impotent, blind and sick folks waiting for the moving of the waters at the pool of Bethesda and laying in the street to touch the HEM of His garment. The HEM is linen righteousness which is Christ. The water is Christ the River of Life in you. We cannot continue to forsake His Covenants and fix our eyes on cancer awareness. He even returned us to behold the goodness of the Lord in the land of the LIVING where there is peace and rest. Dead means no knowledge of God and how Christ was placed in them. No knowledge that Christ is forever moving and having His being as the River of Life in them. They rejoiced at the works of their own hands (Acts 7:41) when known unto God are all His works from the beginning. (Acts 15:18)

The Kingdom of God is FULL to overflowing … but what will we believe. Will we apply our heart to know Him? Will we study to show ourselves we are already all ready? Can we be still and know Him? He said, “Behold the King of Glory within YOU.” We don’t need to wander any more wondering when … it is TODAY!! Wise men still SEEK HIM.

We walk in the Path of Righteousness for His Holy name sake! That path is holy, glorious and without sickness or disease. Isaiah calls it the Highway of Holiness. (Isaiah 35:1-10) I believe and know this is the day, the hour, the year, the season to be rejoicing for our eyes see Him within all mankind. Where He is THERE is Holy!! Our ears hear we are His delight, we are cleansed from crying unclean to holy now. (Matthew 11:5) The dead in Christ are raised up because dead means no knowledge of God or of Christ in man. Yes, that is what Jesus came to give to mankind. His death, life, light, and mind. Also, His understanding of Father’s business EST. From the Beginning and yes, how He is the Lamb of God.

Hark!! This “angel” is declaring, “It is time for us to reap what God Himself has sown for all of us in all of us. He will render unto all mankind His day judged in righteousness according to His works, love and mercy!” Believe the report of the Lord and that it has been established in TRUTH. Ecclesiastes 8:16 When we applied our hearts to know Wisdom/Christ Jesus and to see the business that has been done in the earth we awakened from our sleep.

Oh Come all ye Faithful, Joyful and IN a “STABLE” Covenant of Mercy and with the Power of His Love (1 John 2:5-7) … Unmovable, unshakable, and blameless before Him and unchangeable in His Holy Holiday’s!!

Acts 17:28-31, 7:41, 15:18; Romans 1:4, 4:6, 2:6; John 10:25; Mark 6:56; Luke 1:75, 6:18; 1 John 2:24-29; 2 John 1:5-10; Deuteronomy 29:25; Isaiah 14:7 & 8

Good News Reporting – Peace on Earth

Jesus Himself said, “The power to heal was “present” in them to heal them all.” Only ONE turned back to say Thank You!! His Name Wonderful means full of miracles. His Name Rapha means stitched together as one. Holiness is unto the Lord … pure and white, clean and bright. That is what we see “in the Light.”

The KEY is … can you just return to GIVE Thanks? They all gave thanks in their own language. 1 Corinthians 14:16 Praying in the spirit you GIVE THANKS very well!! No interpreter needed on this one. Just Say Thank You! JESUS is the ONE who returned thanks for us!! But can we BE a “thankful” witness? There is JOY and PEACE when you repeat the report you believe! What are you reporting? Listen to what you are repeating.

Good News reporter. …and to ALL a Good Day and Night!

Matthew 11:25; Luke 5:17, 10:21; John 11:41

Joy and Peace on Earth

Jesus did not come to make God’s Love possible but to make Father’s Love Visible. His birth, death for us and as us, along with the power of His resurrection life confirmed the truth for us from the beginning. One Man, One Lamb, and One plan… Once and for all sealed with His Covenants of Love, Peace, Mercy, Union, and Holiness unto the Lord.

Knowing and trusting HIM that we are ONE now, helps us take a deep breath knowing there is nothing that needs to be done but rest in the works of His Hands. He has said, it is finished, blessed, sanctified, and called it holy for us!! ;♥) … and God Winks.

Jude 24 reminds us by saying, “Now to Him that is able to guard you from stumbling. He has SET you IN HIM, who is the Presence of His Glory and you are without blemish in exceeding joy.” Without blemish? Yes, He is Holy! Since the root is holy the branches BE HOLY too! Christ IN YOU is your Hope and His Glory!! He abides and remains as one with us even when we cannot believe it is true. Why? Because He is Faithful and cannot and will not deny Himself. Yes, Your Peace Matters! He calls you HOLY!

There is joy & peace when we believe … but what are you choosing to believe? Faith is when I trust and believe Him with my heart and my hands open to receive His provision. He remains as the Faithful One even when we cannot rest or relax enough to know, see or feel His giant size grip of Grace. Why? Timothy knew His will and purpose was to have Christ gifted inside every man. The Hidden Treasure now abiding in our earthen vessels to enjoy this day He has made IN Glory. His will has been done on earth as it is in heaven. Oh what LOVE!

2 Timothy 2:13-15; Romans 11:16 & 15:13; Colossians 1:27

Show them WHERE they walk …


Holiness is not something we finally attain – Holiness IS where we Walk IN HIM all of our days. Christ Righteousness is our FREE GIFT He gave to us. That they should be clothed with white linen, clean and pure. Linen is the righteousness of Christ in the saints.

Those who were called to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb did not come because they felt unworthy and that they were not dressed with the proper attire. God is well pleased because of the Lamb of God given for all and dressed us in Fine Linen which is Christ His Holy and Righteous gift. There is JOY and PEACE when we believe and receive His Gift.

“For unto us is born this day in the city of David our Savior which is Christ the Lord.”

Luke 1:75 & 2:11; Romans 1:4 & 5:17-20; 1 Thessalonians 2:12

What is God’s Joy that He made to be our Strength?


… You all rejoice with Joy unspeakable being full of Christ His Glory: Unspeakable means to be IN a completion that is indescribable.

Again the Kingdom of Heaven is likened unto a Treasure hidden in the field. Christ is the Kingdom of Heaven and also called our Holy Justice Habitation. The field is Christ, white with the harvest of His holy, pure, sacred life, light, love and lamb. We are encouraged to enter into the Joy of the Lord and allow His joy to be our strength too. His JOY is Christ.

When we hear the Word of God we are exhorted to receive it with Joy. That word is that we have been accepted into the beloved. Right now approved and well pleasing because of Christ hidden within us.

The Joy of the Lord is seen in Job 33:23-26 & Romans 5:14-21 I’m paraphrasing …” if and there is, a messenger to show unto man his righteousness; he finds God to be gracious and has realized the blessing shouting I found his ransom. We have already received the favorable report that God is well pleased with us because of the Lamb of God and his blood cries Holy. The JOY is seen on His face  because He rendered unto all mankind His righteous Gift of Christ within us. This a HUGE!!! Rendered means to repent, return back to God, restore, refresh, repair and bring back to mind. This was included in IT IS FINISHED!! Anything we think God requires of me it was completed and paid in full so we could dance with JOY!!! Are you dancing yet??

It’s always been established from the beginning … God’s one man plan. He provided Himself the Lamb to silence the Liar with the Truth. He also was the HAIL sent to remove the refuge of lies. That is why He is called MY REFUGE!! We can see this also in the death and life of one man; the Man Christ Jesus. Also, we see this in the sign of the sinless unleavened Bread and holy noble Wine. In the first Adam all die and in the Last Adam all are made alive because of the righteous gift of Christ Jesus our Lord. Even the First Adam was a type and shadow of Christ who was to come. Disobedience also means to hear amiss and unbelief. Obedience means to trust and believe. Jesus even paid the price for our unbelief and was raised up into newness of life for us with fruit unto eternal life.

That is why we rejoice knowing Jesus did the work for us from the beginning knowing our ears must hear the truth to obey with gladness and joy in our hearts. He paid the price in full for our ears to hear, our eyes to see, our tongue to speak and repeat His truth and glory. To cleanse the lepers so they cry Holy instead of unclean, and to raise up the dead in Christ who have no knowledge of God. Father established us and planted us in Christ His garden of delight. We are His peculiar people. Peculiar means to hide the treasure of the King in a safe place. Oh yes, called His chosen generation, His royal priesthood, and Holy nation.

… May you experience JOY this holiday like no other. He even died to pay the price for our unbelief sealed with a Covenant of Mercy to keep His Love for us all unconditional!! Now that’s Good News to Rest and be Merry!! Yes, there is Joy and Peace when you believe! I hope you dance because your Peace Matters to Him and there is Peace on Earth goodwill towards all!

Happy Holy Days … From all of us at Always-N-Joy! Joanne

BE Good for Goodness Sake!!

~♥GOODNESS♥~ means Fit for use, virtuous, uprightness (righteous) in your heart and in your life, gracious, and kindness. Oh the riches of His grace in kindness!

We can have all kinds of material comforts but, if our spirit is not at peace it can cause us to “feel homeless.” His eternal covenants are to SET our hearts at rest knowing we are at home IN HIM in a completion that is “Fit” for the Kingdom of God. Fit means to be well off, prosper, to be righteous and well done. Aaahhh! ♥ So just BE GOOD for Goodness sake ~ Just one more of His Wonderful Gifts within you right now. Your Peace Matters!

His Peace ~ Gifted with a Lifetime Guarantee

Our Always-N-Joy ministry verse is Jeremiah 6:16 … Why? Because our peace matters to God. If in the natural people are winning the Nobel Peace Prize for bringing peace to the world without fighting; then by gosh Our Father who established world peace from the beginning all the way to the end should be heard and understood. Always-N-Joy is a Voice for Peace to do some serious resting of our hearts and lives.

This is what the LORD says: “Stop at the crossroads and look around. Ask for the OLD, godly way, and walk in it. Travel its path, and you will find rest for your souls. But you reply, ‘No, that’s not the road we want!’ (Jeremiah 6:16) OLD here means the old, ancient, eternal, perpetual, ALWAYS, forever, everlasting and what is hidden. What did He hide? He hid Christ in us, and in a fixed position of rest with peace that surpasses all our understanding. It is the honor of Kings to search out the matter.

Christ is all in all and is the Righteous path and our Ancient of Days. He is an eternal, everlasting path that is sealed with the heart and word of our Eternal Father. He sealed them with the blood of the Lamb of God slain before the world began. Covenants of oath that are unshakable and unmovable. Can we just say with a Lifetime Guarantee? Jesus was the visible expression of an invisible truth. He was called the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. (John 1:29 & 36)

Jesus came confirming the Word, establishing the truth and showing its validity. Making good the promise of God that indeed we have the announcement and message of blessing upon our lives with signs and wonders following Him. His name Wonderful means full of miracles. We are already full of His grace Gift. He came for us to see the Perfect Man spoken of in Psalms 37:37 which states, “Mark the  perfect man and behold righteousness; the end of that man is perfect peace.”

Yes, Your Peace Matters!

Always-N-Joy because of our Lord & King of Righteousness & Peace, Joanne
