The Dialogue

THE PLACE

March 5, 2021


When have you learned something when “place” played a role?

Sitting around circle at school The Community gathered close The Question was spoken What do you value most?

If you could choose one thing Only one thing you could save What one thing would you choose To live out your days?

Do not pick three wishes,

Nor money, nor clothes,

Nor say your health, nor your animals

Not your mom or dad or anyone who is close.

But pick some thing

One thing THAT REALLY MATTERS MOST. What would the students say

As they listened intently as to what each one chose?

A boat, a plane,

A special gift of some sort

The answers were given one by one And the answers were short.

Then my grandson

Who is my student as well What did I hear him say? What did he tell?

“The one thing that is so special to me The one thing, I knew from the start The only thing that I really want

Is the one thing that is in my heart.”

My grandson is not yet a man, He is the one I call “my boy” He did not ask for a new gun, Nor any kind of toy.

“Our LAND is what I want to keep, Harvest Fields is what I want to be mine, Our land, all 128 acres in Gibson.

It’s where my life is defined

It’s where I hunt and fish

It’s where alligators and wild animals roam Where I walk in the woods with my dogs

It is there that I call home.

It is where deer and ducks live

Where eagles, owls and hawks fly high, It is the place where I smell the fresh air It is where I look to the sky.

It is a Place of no limits The Place for me

The Place of my future My Place where I am free

The LAND is THE PLACE

I ask you to give

If I can ask for only one thing

It is the only place where I feel that I live.”

THEN it was my turn in the circle to speak

What would the teacher say was the one thing for him? “My porch” overlooking my land

This is THE PLACE where I want to live til the end.

PROCLAIMING A NEW DAY OF FREEDOM TO BE YOU

January 19, 2021


YOU ARE FREE. PREVIOUS LIMITATIONS ARE BROKEN.

TIME TO SEE INTO YOUR FUTURE. TIME TO FLY.

We decree the year 2021 is a new day. A new decade has begun. Shalom. We speak shalom. Peace to you and your family. Freedom for our people. Christ has set you free.

This is the year of repentance from sin and death, and to receive the joy of your salvation. Turn from the wicked way. Turn to God. Receive Jesus as Savior. Confess Jesus as Lord. Be born again into His kingdom and walk worthy of the calling of Christ that He has in your life. God transforms you by His Spirit and Word to be the YOU that He created you to be. Receive your forgiveness and freedom. Be purged through the power of the blood of Jesus. And what you receive freely from God, freely give to others. Christ sends you out on His mission to set captives free.

This is a year to claim your inheritance as a child of God. This is your debt-free year, your prosperity year. Christ paid the price for you to be free from sin and death. This is Your year of spiritual and physical health. This is Your year of spiritual and physical wealth. This is Your year to see visions and dreams from God. This is your time to exit the limitations of your past world and enter the place that God has prepared for you as your new world that He envisions and created for you to receive.

The World has tried to say that you aren’t allowed to be you, that you are bound by what “they say” you are, and you are limited as to where and how far you can go. We do not subscribe to the World’s limiting definition of who we are, what we are allowed to do, and where and how far we are going in life.

God says YOU ARE FREE IN CHRIST.

We subscribe to the Word’s limitless definition of who we are in Christ and what we can do through God. “We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.” (Philippians 4:13)

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things have become new. (2 Corinthians 5:17)

This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!

Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage. (Galatians 5:1)
