Last night I slept very well. Dream-less at the beginning however the trip back to bed after a bathroom visit, wasn’t so fruitless.
I was entering a church meeting. No one smiled at me as I made my way to my seat.
A lady I know asked if I’d won any new people (curious phrase, huh?)
I shook my head and announced that I’d spoken with a few past ones though. She grimaced and the lady in the seat next to me said, “Then you’re under old covering.”
In the dream her statement bothered me. And as I try to recall the dream as I type this it no longer concerns me. My faith may have been shaken by one brutal tragedy which caused my prayers to be hindered in some areas (my heart issue; nothing to do with Christ) however, I know that I am not uncovered. My struggle in ministry isn’t about winning souls, it’s about heart issues.
Anywho, I have said all of that to remind you to take inventory of gained weight from past stuff. Don’t carry old grudges into 2021, or even into tomorrow. Allow unforgiveness to dissipate so that healing can begin. Selah
Do not focus so much on winning souls that you leave your spirit man unfed/unattended – hungry. And ignore church people! You know who they are… always complaining about something or other… joyless, just being seen attending the building racking in people points, neglecting heavenly treasures. SElah
Souls won over to Christ is achieved by simply living through and for him. Your life is ministry.
And in the words of the great Bernie Mac… Hi ya livin’?
Never forget that Christmas isn’t about getting or even giving for that matter. It’s about remembering that it isn’t anything this world has made it out to be… its about , its about, its about sales… and if you happen to believe that there was, a long time ago, a baby born in a barn… it is about him.

Wow! What a rabbit trail! Live with the understanding that youR life, how you live it, speaks louder than any scripture you can scream. SELAH
