    What an encouraging and very personal message! Every message is meant to be personal, but honestly this felt so much more personal to me than anything in a while. When I first heard the message, live on Sunday, my first thoughts were, "I think I have had some miscarriages because I'm not seeing certain things (mainly harvest from evangelism) in my life."
    However, over the last couple of days I have been seeing something else. I listened to the message again and went through my notes and looked up scripture and God began to remind me of change that has been happening in me. Seed, God's word, has been growing and changing me. The thing is it's been so internal, mindset changes, emotional changes, and even changes in my will, that unless you're with me everyday, you may not really notice, because it's been subtle.

    The life that has been growing in me brought me to a place where when a lie comes, or my emotions try to tell me something contrary to what God's word says, I looked to His commandments and bring it all back to the truth. This has kept me safe this past year. And it has caused me to see how much the commandments of God are truly grace and truly a better way to live as He intended. The life growing in me, brought me to a place where I fasted longer than I ever have and got emptied of long held beliefs about myself, and found out that even when my flesh thinks everything negative and wants to just quit, I know the truth and the truth prevails in my life.

    The life growing inside me has caused me to want souls more than a personal blessing for my own life. It has caused me to talk to strangers. Maybe I hadn't gotten to the point that the words I would say would be rivers of life flowing good news, but I still started talking to strangers. Now I know that the life growing inside of me is ready to be brought forth.

    It's been taking all this year for the growing on the inside in order to make me ready to give birth to something holy, pure, and incorruptible, which only comes from the seed of God. There has been a whole lot of bad, corruptible seed I have had to get rid of, and a whole lot of weeds that had deep roots from generations that had to be removed. I realize there may be some things that I'm still dealing with but I am finally seeing evidence of change in me.

    My body is continually changing for the better, as I am thinking so differently about what I put in it and how I take care of it. My mind is continually changing for the better as I continue to see myself more like God does and I finally believe He created me to share good news with strangers. In fact, my mind and heart has changed to the point that I don't just want to do this because I know we are supposed to but because I want to see people saved. Now the life that is growing in me is changing "how" I talk to strangers. This is something I cannot figure out or try and do in my head. I cannot think my way into talking to strangers the "right" way. It's not about that. It's about life flowing out of me wherever I am and that is something that happens when life is in you. That is when the word has become life in my life in this area of evangelism, and I am allowing, permitting the word to become life in me.

    Elder Christy thanks for taking the time to discuss this week! You are a faithful discusser because you see the purpose of it. It is the same with what you are seeing in the message. When we go from "I know God says it, so I am going to do it" to "I not only know God says it but I see He has a purpose in it" WOW now it really clicks. It starts with obedience and faitth is added then we get the bigger picture! Now we are talking to strangers because it is changing their lives . In addition it changes our lives with each encounter.
    great observations! Roll on with Jesus!

    When I think of intimacy with God, I'm reminded of what it's like for a man and woman who want to be in a relationship together. Many people outside of the relationship will have their different views and opinions about the person that you have feelings for, but you want to find out for yourself what this person is REALLY like, who that person REALLY is. You really don't care too much about what other people have to say about him/her. You desperately want to spend as much time as possible with this person. And as the relationship grows you learn what is important to the person that you love so much. You'll eventually know this person well enough that if you hear anything being said from other people, you'll know if what is being spoken about the person you love is out of character or not. Because you've taken the time to get to know the core of who he/she is.
    I want to know my God even more than that. To be intimate in such a way that I will know the difference if someone tries to tell me something untrue about Him. I want to be so passionately intimate with Him that I will see what He sees, and love what He loves. We have been learning that His desire is that every creature gets the opportunity to get to know Him. Intimacy...Is there life after love? We can be completely passionate about Him and intimate with Him, but if there is no life that comes out of that intimacy, what's the point? Life- I see life as being the souls He wants us to win. So out of the intimacy I have with Yehovah, is there any evidence of life...any more souls? I know it takes time after seed has been sown to see if anything has produced from in it yet. So where are the souls from the seeds that have been sown so far? I ask this question a lot. But here's the answer I think I'm seeing right now.... Couples are intimate everyday, sowing seed, and no it doesn't always produce into a baby. BUT then there IS a time where FINALLY ONE produces, out of the hundreds and hundreds of times that a couple would be intimate. And in my recent experience with having a baby, even THEN we were surprised!
    So, in all this, this is what I heard... Keep being intimate with Yehovah, keep sowing seed, and at some point that tiny little seed WILL produce into a life, a soul, and it will be a miracle! But it would never had happened if the intimacy and seed wasn't sown in the first place! This encourages me to keep going. Plus, just like being intimate with my husband, every time I sow seed with Yehovah through evangelism, a baby (or soul) may not produce, BUT each time I DO feel a little bit closer to Him. So win-win. ;)

    This message caused me to really evaluate my intimacy level with God. Since God is love, there is no life without love if He is not the love we are being intimate with.. Without love, we can not have life. So is there life after love? In order to have life, we have to be intimate with the only TRUE love that exists and that is Yehovah Himself. Once we know that love and become intimate with Him, life/seed is conceived in us and then brought forth at deliverance through fruit/works of God. I cannot birth a Holy Thing from Yehovah unless it is conceived from loving Him. Whatever I conceive apart from Him, is flesh fruit and that will be burned up when I stand before Him. God tells people to depart from Him because HE NEVER KNEW THEM! Too many times people say, I know God but I always ask them, does God know you? What god are we intimate with on a daily basis. This is a question that I am know asking myself daily...... Great message to prepare us for the feast of dedication!!!!!

    There's a lot of things that we can be intimate with being close with God is more than just living with him. Being around him is a great start but being one with God being in unity with God it's another whole level.
    That level produces something we can be around him and that may not totally produce something but when you are one with him when you're at peace with him you will be changed there will be a deposit in your life that will produce something that cannot be produced unless the pure seed of God is deposited into our life the real manifested works of God cannot be produced in just the flesh it requires God's input.
