From glory to glory.....

Some thoughts from my desk - Saturday, November 23, 2019

I came across the photo posted below while doing some organizational work to my office desktop computer today.  This picture was taken in June of 2011 in Taormina, Italy.  It was a time of great transition for Melinda and me.  I am so often blessed and comforted when I have experiences in which the Father puts me in the perfect place, at the perfect time and nudges me to look up!  That is exactly what happened that day in Taormina.  And when I looked up, this is what I saw - "CHANGE AUTHORIZED"!!

I felt that I should post this photo this morning and say to you that you have been called to a life of representing your Father.  In order for any of us to come more into that work, we must walk through - go through, change.  We have heard it said that God takes us as we are but never intends to leave us as we were!  I have been journeying with God since I was 20 1/2 years old.  I am now nearing 70.  The constant care and attendance of my Father through all of these years gives me great comfort and hope.

Today I say to you, and remind myself, that change has been authorized!!  We will go from glory to glory - from strength to strength, as we follow on to know the Lord!  Transformation is His work not mine or yours.  My work is to believe.  My work is to position myself for His continuing work in me.  The same is true for you!  As you continue in His word, you are His disciple, and you will know the truth and the truth will set you free!!  Lift up your head dear one, the King of Glory will come in!!!  And He has already given the order, "CHANGE AUTHORIZED."
