    God gives us opportunities to change! I'm so bless that God can work in me and through me if I'm willing to give it all to Him. I have be walking in hurt, anger, unforgiveness... I been holding that in and not letting God in. I got a change to talk one on one with a wonderful Lady (Elder Christy) and basically she said to give it all to God. She said to tell God how I really feel and let him heal me... Sounds simple but it was so hard. It was hard for me because for so long I was walking in this hurt and I felt like no one else was able to help with the pain. I didn't want God knowing what he already knew... My hurt. God was just waiting for me to open up and let Him in. He can't work in a vessel full of damage and He is willing to help take care of that damage once we realize we can't do the healing without Him.
    I had teary eyes listening to Pastor Aaron Sunday. I love when you are going through something and the preacher starts to talk about things you are going through lol... I make that face of, How did he know that? Who told him that? But really is just God speaking.
    God doesn't want a helpmate that is not willing to talk to Him about things. All God wants is for His people to spend time with Him so He can clean them and renew them. That sounds like a wonderful God to me. God gives us choices, Will we follow His instructions or keep that Leprosy. For myself I had a choice to keep dealing with the hurt or follow the instructions of opening up to God and letting Him heal me. The instructions of God are simple but we has humans make it so hard because we want to get clean, heal, delivered...etc.. our way. But now I see that my way didn't work or I would have been free already. I choose His WAY today! I choose today to give it all to God. I choose today to keep His oil burning! I choose today to be FREE.

    Praise God Stephanie!! I am so blessed to hear you listening to God and doing what He says so that He can meet you where you are. I love how God speaks to each of us through His Word, whether it being preached, or when we read it, right where we are and what He is doing in us.

    The message was fantastic, thank you Pastor Aaron.There were so many nuggets throughout that you cannot possibly go through them all without writing a book so I won't. But what God has been dealing with me in and Pastor Aaron brought it out is obedience. He asked a question that really goes hand and hand with obedience. He said, "What do we tell ourselves is okay so that we can desecrate our temples?" It is so easy to look at all the pagan holidays that we came through and say, "I don't do that" and think we're okay and yet not obey God in some other area of our life and still desecrate our temples.

    I have been searching because I want to be more dedicated this year than I was last year and what I am seeing is that I have to be more obedient and not just in the things that I agree with. It's so easy for me to obey God and man (my boss, husband, leadership, etc.) in areas that I totally agree with but when it comes to things I don't agree with or think are silly, or maybe just think aren't that big of a deal, I realize I don't always obey. I do most of the time but will find myself with excuses why I don't some of the time---which means I've been learning disobedience this past year instead of learning obedience. I REPENT!!

    Every time I do something contrary to God's word or what someone else has said to do that has authority over me, and I choose to do something else, I learn how to disobey again. I have always thought of myself as someone who strives to obey and after God began to reveal the little things where there has been disobedience, I realized there is so much more than I thought. I realize I had been too much like Naaman when he wanted things the way he wanted them or the way he thought it should be, instead of just obeying. I thank God for revealing this to me because I had no idea how much disobedience I was walking in. If I want the power of God in my life---and I DO!! then I am going to continue to learn obedience this year in all areas, not just the ones I like or agree with.

    Is the force with me? Not enough... As a minister of the gospel, I am instructed to live the gospel. 1 Corinthians 9:14 14 Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel. I share this scripture because as Pastor Aaron preached, I cannot live the gospel may way and think God is going to honor my disobedience or can I be blunt, desecration of the temple. I have learned so much over the past couple of weeks of what a truly dedicated tabernacle looks like and how God works through those who truly are after His heart. The force, aka God's presence, can only dwell and remain with and in those tabernacles that are dedicated. Yes, we have the ability to repent and ask God to forgive us and He is faithful and just to cleanse us and forgive us of all our sins but why am I choosing to sin in the first place is a tough question I am asking myself. I cannot have God's deliverance and supernatural presence my way, it is his deliverance and work anyway therefore He has the right to do it His way. Ugghhhhh. O wretched man that I am to think we can have the gospel our way and as Sister Stephanie mentioned in her post to hold on to feelings that we should have given to God a long time ago. Thank you Stephanie Carter for a great post!!!!!!!
    Time for me to truly make room for God to move because I need Him to move in my life ASAP. What is that going to require, me to repent and get out of the way so He can move and for the force to be flowing with me, always!

    Stephanie Carter:
    " I didn't want God knowing what he already knew.." What a great statement!! It is so simple, we make it hard. When will we realize that God already knows? He wants true relationship with us which requires back and forth. So emptying ourselves of all the guilt and hurt by talking to our Father about it is relationship! Thank You Stephanie for baring your soul and showing us what it takes to get rid of the junk. I love God more each day when I am talking with Him. Hiding things from God is not a good plan. ROll on and discuss!

    Elder Christy
    " I did it my way" The old song that so many love says. What a wrong statement. You have hit it on the head . If we get it in our hearts that we can be obedient every time if we agree or not. we open up the blessings of God. Guess what, if leadership is wrong God will reveal that and get it on track if we are praying. We all like to take the easy path. that is why the Word says wide is the way to destruction and MANY there be that find it. Some people say we are "Narrow minded" . I say thank you! that means I must have found the narrow way! If we are in the light as He is in the light.....Staying in the presence of the Holy Spirit is the best way to be obedient. Roll on and Discuss !!

    Minister Ryan Welker
    AS leaders some times we hold stuff in that we should be giving to God, because we spend our time ministering to the needs of others. Continuing to take out the trash is the way to walk in blessing and honor. We have so much going in our minds from the never ending noise of this world that we need to be aware and empty the bad every day . ( He said to himself) .. Discuss on and Roll on with Jesus!

    Thank you for sharing Stephanie and thank you for another reminder that God's instructions are more simple then we make them. I've been taught that... but seem to forget it, if I have truly learned it at all. Could be there is more that I am trying to do my "own way" than I thought, as you said.

    Pastor Aaron made a statement in this message that struck a chord with me. "Close the door behind you, have a relationship with God that you can be alone with Him." It's so much easier to press in and focus on God when we are together as a body worshiping, learning, praying. But, when I am alone, there are times I have 1,000,000 other thoughts going at once distracting me. (Still working on that erase the chalkboard technique...) I think part of what is holding me back is just as Stephanie said, trying to do it my own way. I am not going to learn the Torah by osmosis of laying my head on it and letting it soak in. It takes dedication to close the door and study the Word, learning who God is by it, and, for me, not getting impatient that I am not learning faster.

    I don't want to be the one saying "I only have this little oil, I need more before you can do anything with me God". Forgive my stubbornness Father!

    Great realization/ I think we want to push forward our "Agenda" and God says "Give it all to me and I will make your agenda really work! I hear ya about putting too much pressure on yourself. It is a journey and God already knows as Stephanie was saying. "I didn't want God to know what He already knew" You are growing just right and press on toward the mark of the high calling of Christ. Roll on!
