Ok, gush!! This recoding is from my daughter, Squeaks. I just had to share it. There are a few glitches but that is ok she is not a professional. Squeaks version of "Smile" by Uncle Cracker.
Squeak's blogs; The Minstrel Warrior and Hidden Doorways.

Job 29:23-25 NIV

They waited for me as for showers
   and drank in my words as the spring rain.
When I smiled at them, they scarcely believed it;
   the light of my face was precious to them.
I chose the way for them and sat as their chief;
   I dwelt as a king among his troops;
   I was like one who comforts mourners.

Jesus Culture- Rooftops

Kim Walker

Jesus Culture Awakening 2011 Chicago August 3rd - 5th, who's going? I sure do want to go but, one it is too far and two I think they are sold out. If you are going I sure do hope you have an amazing time. I am sure this will be a Spirit filled event.

Revelation 16:15-16 NIV

“Look, I come like a thief! Blessed is the one who stays awake and remains clothed, so as not to go naked and be shamefully exposed.”
Then they gathered the kings together to the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.

God; Who is He and what does He want?

I had a really cool conversation with a young man Tuesday night. We were talking about Jesus and how he agrees with me that there will be a huge awakening in not only our town but in our province and all over North America. He, I'll call him John, also believes that this awakening will start with the younger people ushering it in by their love for Jesus and their persistence in seeking His face. John was at the prophetic conference I attended last week and he really experienced the power of the Holy Spirit and was filled with the love of the Lord.

Our conversation was directed towards what will draw people to Jesus and the awakening. John explained to me how one day while he was working, a man, I'll call him Thomas, from our church came in and questioned John on why he was so full of life and joy. John went on to explain to this man that it was because he loved Jesus so much and was just over joyed with how much Jesus loved him.Thomas scolded John and told him that he shouldn't focus on the love of Jesus but on repentance. Thomas left John with the words I'll be praying for your salvation.

Wow, generations at odds again! This really got me into my thinking mode about Who is God and really what does He want? Repentance? Love? Devotion? What is He looking for? Thomas is correct in saying that we need repentance and John is correct in saying we need to seek His face. I believe we cannot have an awakening unless all the generations work together with the passion our Lord has given each of us.

Luke 5:31-32 NIV
Jesus answered them, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

2 Peter 3:9 NIV
The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

2 Corinthians 7:9-10 NIV
yet now I am happy, not because you were made sorry, but because your sorrow led you to repentance. For you became sorrowful as God intended and so were not harmed in any way by us. Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death.

Psalm 24:5-6 NIV
They will receive blessing from the LORD and vindication from God their Savior. Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek your face, God of Jacob.

2 Chronicles 7:11-13 NIV
“When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place. 

John and Thomas are both correct, we need repentance while we are seeking His face and I believe this is what God wants us to do, for God is love. Generations need to work together not knocking each other down. The younger cannot say to the older this is the way it is to be done and the older cannot say to the younger no this is the way. We need to take the gifts and passions that God has given each generation and combine them together in one voice glorifying and honouring God; seeking His face in humility and repentance.

1 John 4:7-10 NIV
Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.

God is love. He sent His only son for you and for me. Right now He is all cuddly, warm and very welcoming but soon this will not be the case for the Bible tells us that Jesus will be returning and He will be returning as the Warrior He is, after all He is the Lion of the tribe of Judah and He is coming back to claim all that belongs to Him and that is His church, the people who have believed on the work He did on the cross. No one knows the hour or the time of His return but if you follow the news you are sure to know that the time is growing short.

Come into Him now for He came as a lamb and we are living in a time of grace. His love abounds and His gifts are good, seek His face, repent of the old self and walk in the footsteps of Jesus. Come as you are right now for He loves you so much and He has patience and is willing to teach you and pick you up when you fall. We are heading into a great awakening don't you think it would be really cool to be a part of it?

Acts 2:17-18 NIV
“‘In the last days, God says,
   I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
   your young men will see visions,
   your old men will dream dreams. 
Even on my servants, both men and women,
   I will pour out my Spirit in those days,
   and they will prophesy".

Building up or Tearing down

Ephesians 4:29-32 NIV

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. 

Google Image
I use to, (before kids and RA), work with hard to handle, 'dangerous' horses and I was quite good at getting a hard to handle horse to submit. The reason a horse will be labeled 'dangerous' is because these are the type of horses that would rather fight than flee. If you have a 1300 pound horse fighting you the outcome will likely be either a wounded trainer, or most often the case is a battered and abused horse which then becomes very dangerous because they would rather fight then submit under almost any circumstance. These are the horses that I thrived in working with and I had huge success in dealing with 'dangerous' horses. Why? Because I used Ephesians 4:29-32 and converted these words into horse language. Yes, you read this right, horse language. :) I could take on one of these massive beasts and gain their trust, getting them to do anything I asked them to do all in a matter of a few months. How, by TLC (tender loving care). Telling them in body language NO you don't act like that and YES you do act in this way when they show even the slightest movement towards what I asked. You cannot bully a horse with the fight tendencies but you can convince them with positive actions that what you ask is beneficial to them in the form of rewards. The same is true for people. 

When someone corrects with harsh degrading words our tendency is to fight back and rebel instead of correcting our ways. If you pull your brother or sister aside and gently correct them with positive up lifting words yet still letting them know what they have done is wrong then the results will pull towards a self correction in attitude and repentance of the sin committed and a willingness to do what is right.

When Jesus was on the cross He said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”. Luke 23:33 NIV  Again after He rose up He showed Himself to the disciples He said,  And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive anyone’s sins, their sins are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.”  John 20:22-23 NIV

Jesus wants us to forgive and build each other up in the Lord. These are some of the very last words He spoke before He gave up His life and then again they are some of the very first words He spoke when He had risen and shown Himself to the disciples. Forgiveness is hard especially when someone close to you has hurt you. But it is the forgiveness and trusting again that allows us to become free.

One of the horses I owned was a very dangerous filly who almost killed someone by kicking them in the chest and collapsing their lung. She was labeled dangerous and was going to be shot. God led me to her and I begged the owner to let me buy her. He was only willing to agree if I could prove to him that I could work with her in front of him. If I could show him that I could handle her then he would sell her to me. I had only 1 week to spend with her before I had to show him I was able to handle her. By the time I had to perform in front of her owner, I was able to have her follow me around the arena, pick up her feet and make her back up, which is huge trusting feat in a horse with fight tendencies. He agreed to the sale and wished me luck. I ended up calling her Majestic Warrior, for she had a fighting heart that was so big. Eventually War would do anything I asked of her because she trusted me and if horses could forgive, I believe she forgave people for the wicked abuse she suffered at the hand of a cruel owner.

Forgiveness is the key to healing physically and spiritually. When we hang onto hatred, fear, anger, mistrust and so on we cannot heal. God also tells us that if we do not forgive then He won't hear our prayers. Our hearts need to be clean in front of God, we need to confess our sins to Him even the little sins that we think are not important, you know that little white lie you told? Yea that one. :)

James 5:14-16 NIV 
Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.

Every abused animal that I have ever worked with turn out to be some of the nicest animals ever, willing to go that extra mile because of kindness shown to them. If this happens with mere animals can you imagine what would happen when kindness is shown to  people? I believe there would be more people giving their lives over to Christ if we did as the Good Book said, love your neighbour as yourself. After all we sure do take care of ourselves. 

Pray, in all things ask and talk to God, repent of our sins, (all of them), ask for forgiveness, forgive those who have hurt us, even though they really don't deserve it or continue to hurt us. Then, I believe, we will experience the freedom that God has for us.
