ET S’IL Y AVAIT PLUS POUR VOUS?



Alors voilà. Vous y êtes. Au bord de ce ravin plein de questions. Que vous ayez 20 ans, 40 ans ou 60 ans, vous y êtes peut-être. Et cette question qui revient sans cesse : Mais qu’est-ce que je fais là ? Quel est le but de ce que je vis sur cette planète ? Tout est confus, rien n’a de sens. Vous êtes peut-être actuellement employé dans une société et à un poste qui au fond ne vous correspond ABSOLUMENT pas ? Vous êtes peut-être mère au foyer et rêvez d’un changement dans votre quotidien ? Vous êtes peut-être tout fraîchement titulaire d’un diplôme dans un domaine spécifique, sur le point de démarrer dans la vie professionnelle et vous vous demander en réalité si vous faites dans la bonne vocation ?

Toutes ces questions, très souvent sont le début d’un flot d’autres questions qui n’ont su tarder ou ne vont pas tarder, croyez-moi. C’est exactement là où je me trouve à l’heure où je vous écris.

« Oui, mais à partir de là, je fais quoi ? Je suis perdue ! Quelle est mon échappatoire ? »

Et bien bonne nouvelle ! Le simple fait que vous vous posiez la question prouve déjà que vous êtes entrés dans un processus de réveil et j’aimerais même dire de réveil spirituel ! Parce qu’au fond, Dieu nous a TOUS créés pour une raison. Nous avons TOUS une mission sur cette terre, auprès des gens qui nous entourent, au sein même de notre famille et c’est parce que d’avantage vous attend que vous en arrivez aujourd’hui ici, avec ces questions répétitives qui ressemblent à un « bord de falaise » du quel vous pourriez glisser à tout moment.

Encore une fois, j’en suis arrivée là moi aussi. Il est clair que quand nous nous retrouvons dans cette situation, il semble juste bien difficile de faire demi-tour. Et s’il y avait plus cher lecteur? Et si ce que nous vivions n’était juste pas ce que Dieu nous appelle à vivre ?



Et cette question nous ramène aux fondamentaux bien-sûr. L'un de ces fondamentaux est sans conteste LA FOI. Cela demande beaucoup de foi que de croire en un futur qu’on ne voit pas encore, en des promesses qui sont à venir. Mais au final, n’est-ce pas l’essence même de la foi ? N’est-ce pas « la ferme assurance des choses qu'on espère, la démonstration de celles qu'on ne voit pas » ? (Hébreux 11 :1)

Cher lecteur, Dieu désire que nous croyions Sa Parole sans aucune autre preuve, et c’est alors qu’il agira pour nous, selon le degré de notre foi. Dieu nous fait des promesses et Il ne ment pas. Ne croyez pas qu’il est inactif car c’est le sous-estimer. Alors que Dieu retarde l’échéance de Ses plans pour nous, comprenez qu’en fait, Il prépare ses instruments et mature notre force. Il n’est jamais dans la « hâte ». Dieu préférera passer des années à vous préparer pour les extraordinaires plans qu’Il a pour vous et ne voit pas ce temps de préparation comme trop long ou ennuyeux. Ce temps est primordial pour vous faire entrer dans votre destinée. Dieu est entrain de vous éduquer pour votre futur service pour Son Royaume et pour de plus grandes bénédictions. Alors n’essayez pas de dépasser Dieu, laissez Le gérer car personne d’autre mieux que Lui ne sait ce qui est bon pour vous et l’heure à laquelle vous serez prêt pour « le grand saut » dans votre ministère !

Croyez-moi, si vous vous sentez bloqué là où vous êtes, dans l’incapacité d’avancer parce qu’il vous semble qu’il n’y a aucun chemin, soyez patient, priez et demander à Dieu de vous révéler ses signes et merveilles !

Quelque chose de mieux vous attend.
Ce que nos ancêtres ont vu de loin, nous le verrons de près si nous persévérons.

Et cette attente, encore une fois, va vous demander beaucoup de foi. Mais rappelez-vous, comme le dit Lisa Bevere (célèbre conférencière américaine chrétienne) votre héritage ne vous vient pas de vos parents. Votre héritage de promesses divines vous vient de Abraham, appelé le père de la foi. Avancez par la foi. Rappelez-vous aussi que la foi n’est pas vague. Elle est une substance et quand elle prend place, Dieu peut agir à travers elle.
Commencez à rêver, donnez-vous des buts et laissez Dieu faire son travail. La seule chose que vous devez faire de votre côté, c’est de croire par la foi et de persévérer.

AND IF THERE WAS MORE ?




Here we go. Here you are. Right on the edge of the cliff full of questions. You might be 20, 40 or 60 years old, this question comes back every day now: What in the world am I doing here? What is my goal on this planet? Everything is blurry, nothing makes sense. Perhaps at the moment you are employed in a company or have a job that doesn’t answer your heart’s desire AT ALL. Perhaps you are a mom at home and dream of a radical change? Perhaps you just obtained your graduation, about to start in the professional life and you wonder if the area you studied in is really what you want in life?

Very often, all these questions are the beginning of a wave of a hundred others that just jumped into your mind or are about to, trust me. It’s exactly where I am at the very hour I’m writing you.

“Yes, ok. But from there, what do I do? I am lost! How can I get out of here?”

Well good news! The simple fact that you ask yourself the question proves that you are already in the process of an awakening and I would like even to say a spiritual awakening! Because God created ALL OF US for a reason. We ALL have a mission on earth; a mission with friends around us, within our family and it’s because something more awaits you that you came to this point today, with all these repetitive questions that seems more like “a cliff” where you could slip at any time!

Again, I am there too. It is obvious that when we end up in this situation, it seems difficult to turn back. But WHAT IF there was more dear reader? WHAT IF what we live weren’t the only thing that God wants us to live?



And this very question brings us back to the fundamental of course: FAITH. It requires a lot of faith to believe in a future we don’t see yet, in promises that are to come. But by the end, isn’t the very essence of faith? Does not faith “shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see”? (Hebrews 11:1)

Dear reader, God desires for us to believe His Word without other evidence, AND THEN He is ready to do for us “according to [our] faith”. God gives us promises and He doesn’t lie. Don’t believe God is inactive because this is to under-estimate Him. When God delays His plans for us, it’s only because He prepares His instruments and matures our strength. He is never in a hurry. He spends years preparing those He plans to greatly use, and never thinks of the days of preparation as being long and boring. This time is primordial to make you enter into your destiny. God is in the process of educating you for future service and greater blessings. So don’t try to run impulsively ahead of the Lord because only He knows best what is good for your and when you will be ready to enter into your ministry!

Trust me, if you feel stuck where you are, in the incapacity to move on because it seems there is no way, be patient, pray and ask God to reveal you signs and wonders!
                                    
Something else awaits you.
What people have seen in a distance, you will see it closer if you press on!

And again, waiting will require a lot of faith. But remember, as Lisa Bevere (American pastor) said, we are not coming  on our parents inheritance, we are coming on Abraham legacy of faith; Abraham is called the father of faith. Move on in faith.
Remember also that faith is not blurry. Faith is a substance and when it takes place, it allows God to work through it.
Start to dream, set goals and let God do His work. The only thing that you need to do on your side is to trust by faith and to persevere.

Persevere… « pierce » and your life will « veer »

FIRE . The dictionary gives us the definition as being [a state, process, or instance of combustion in which fuel or other material...

SING IN THE FIRE!



FIRE.

The dictionary gives us the definition as being [a state, process, or instance of combustion in which fuel or other material is ignited and combined with oxygen, giving off light, heat, and flame.] but also as being  [the destructive burning of a building, town, forest, etc.; conflagration.]

In summary, the fire destroys everything on its passage. And it’s obvious that most of the time, we compare all of our worse trials to hell on earth; hell that is clearly defined by [a place full of burning fire].

As I have been going through a clear abandonment the past summer on June 29th, I can tell you that I was in hell this very day and the days that followed. When my ex fiancé cancelled the wedding 3 weeks before the due date (can’t believe it was almost 9 months ago), I really felt in my bones and flesh what it would be to burn in an eternal fire, where sadness and hurt never stop.

I felt helpless, powerless and in a state where life was almost not worth living anymore. This trial has definitely been the worse in my life and the past months have mostly been a constant fire for me.
It has been a long process in my heart to understand that trials and difficulties can really be seen as opportunities. Yes, I know, it sounds outrageous if you are not at this stage of healing but trust me, trials are opportunities.

Trials are here to test our faith; this is something I am sure of. Sometime, we don’t understand the trials we go through and might never be able to receive or give an explanation to it. But I know for sure that we have a God who will always be by our side and able to lift us up, no matter what trial we go through.

I don’t know about your trials dear friend… But I can tell you about mine. I realized that all of them and especially the one from the past summer brought one common thing to me: they brought me closer to Jesus. Closer than ever expected.

Dear reader, the fire you and I go through is not here to consume us. The fire is here to purify us.

These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. ~ 1 Peter 1:7

This passage in the bible proves us clearly that our faith is always brought to test, as the gold is, in order to be liberated from all our impurities.

Whatever happens to us on this earth, this shouldn’t bring us away for the ultimate plan God has for us. Trials might come our way, but the plans God has for us are good and amazing and will take place!
Going through the fire will not kill us but make us stronger. Remember that it is in our weakness that God glorifies Himself. It is when I am weak that I am strong in Him.

So when you feel like you are going through hell on earth, remember that you have Jesus for you. Jesus conquered death at the cross. Remember that no power in the dark world, no evil spirits in the heavenly places can destroy you. Train your heart to stick itself on the TRUTH OF GOD! It is when you will order your soul to praise God and trust by faith, taking the weapons He gives you, that you will be able to pass through fire without even being burned. You will see the fire as an opportunity to grow in faith, you will see people getting to Christ because of your story, you will see signs, wonders and miracles happening all around you!

When your heart will understand the purpose of your trials rather than to try to understand the trial itself and when it will submit to God no matter what, even a fire 7 times hotter will not scare you, because you will know that your God protects you as He did with Daniel and his friends.

Daniel 3:19- 27
“He (the king Nebuchadnezzar) commanded that the furnace be heated seven times hotter than usual. […]Then the high officers, officials, governors, and advisers crowded around them and saw that the fire had not touched them (Daniel and his friends). Not a hair on their heads was singed, and their clothing was not scorched. They didn’t even smell of smoke!”


So, dear reader, wouldn’t it be the time to press on and sing in the fire?

IT IS TIME TO HEAL



Hi everybody,

This article will be a little different than the other ones because I have been hearing the Holy Spirit telling me « it’s time to use your blog as I always wanted you to use it ».

Long story short ; I received a word of knowledge a few years ago, from a Church based in Temacula (CA) and the pastor received from the Holy Spirit that I would somehow minister in a specific subject for a specific people : women.

I never really felt close to that idea but kept the word in the back of my head, until this very year 2016 where everything became clear. However I didn’t really know how it would end up on the blog so my previous articles are mainly written for both men and women.
I knew I had a quite difficult story and that the Lord had His word to say by using my story, but I had no idea when and where.

To fully understand the deep meaning of my thoughts right now, you need to know my story in its whole and without any filter.

As you probably read in my previous posts, I started this blog because I was about to get married the past year to my best friend but he decided for no specific reason to cancel the wedding and break up 3 weeks before the big day. You can imagine that this situation has been a shock for me and my heart but what a very few of you know or have noticed is that the exact same situation happened to me 4 years ago already. And it is at this moment that I received this word, saying that my brokenness would be used by God to speak to women all around the world and to let them know they are loved by God, no matter what brokenness they are going through.

Now, I got this word 4 years ago, without knowing or even imagining that the same horrible story would knock at my door 4 years later.
In between those 2 situations, I kept the vision on my heart but had nothing more to do with it, as I had myself unsolved issues in my heart, unsolved pain and brokenness that haunted my little world. How could I possibly help broken women if I myself was broken ?

But believe it or not, it’s only when I’ve been broken the second time and in the midst of the worse state my heart could know that I decided to open my journal 5 months ago and share with you those lines.
It’s when I was on the bottom of the pit, crying and screaming after life, wondering why I had to go through this again and again that Jesus told me with His still voice « Honey, I am with you in this situation. And though it hurts, I will show my glory through it. You will prove women that I am greater and bigger than their biggest wounds ».

So from today dear reader, that you are a man or a woman, you will find the same intensity in my writing but it will be simply directed to women and girls, as I feel called to specifically speak to their heart. Guys, you still can read and identify your pain to mine though ;)

However, I think that the heart of a woman has something so special that it has to be wrapped in soft cotton and to be spoke softly with attention and it has in the same time to be waken up in order for them to become warriors!
I think that women have their word to say in our today’s generation and in order to speak frankly and with wisdom, they need to heal first from all the wounds that are still renting some places in their heart.

Girls, you have been broken in multiple ways and one particular way that hurts to the point to think about committing suicide (no kidding) is when we feel rejected and abandoned by the one we love.
What is more frighten for a girl than to be dumped like a vulgar sock thrown on the ground, just before what should have been the most beautiful day of her life, being abandoned by a husband who have found « happiness » in the arms of someone else or being thrown away by a boyfriend at a moment of life that seemed like the bloom of so many promises !
If that happened to you, I am right here with you. I understand and I want to tell you that you are not alone. Because beside the fact that I understand your pain and suffering, there is someone greater who understands even better because He has been abandoned as well, He has been rejected and left away. He has been mocked and mistreated. This loving and caring person is no other than JESUS.

And it requires a complete open heart in the midst of pain to fully embrace His love. It is too great to understand and very often that’s what brings us into confusion, what makes us run away instead of gently accepting His open arms.
It took me a while to understand that fully hearing from Jesus and fully knowing Him requires more than just worshiping Him through some songs on Sunday morning and having some bible reading duties once in a while.

To be here today, and being able to tell you about my healing process, I have had to pass through fire and hell honestly! I have needed to feel powerless on my own to finally start to open the bible in the right way, open my heart completely to my Lord and Savior and since then, this changed my lifeRemember that it is when you are weak that you are strong in Jesus. And you will experience this only by spending time with your creator.

We will talk more deeply about my healing process in another topic but to close this one girls, I just quickly wanted to tell you about Christa Black Gifford’s book « Heart Made Whole ».



This book has been a revelation to me and so far, has played a huge role in my healing process. I advise you to buy it as soon as possible, this book is a gift from God.

Be blessed,
Kath Leen.

DO YOU WANT TO BE HAPPY?



There is a big difference between knowing God and knowing God.

Alright, alright, alright I know your thought on this; But what in the world is she talking about, she just used the same word twice ^^
Yes but knowing God selfishly and knowing God unselfishly is absolutely not the same thing. And when I use the word "knowing", I mean here "to know Him in all the ways: as the God of love, the God of peace, the God of joy, the God who corrects like a dad, the God of patience and slow to anger etc...
Unless we step out of our self-centeredness and the way we think Jesus owns us happiness, we will never know God perfectly for who He is and expand our relationship with Him.

Take the example of Paul; it was never about him, it was never about his needs but always about Jesus. And trust me, as he was a well-known  Jew, student of Gamaliel and extremely appreciated by the High Priest and his “team” of fellow priests, he could have keep walking into pride and pretty high self-esteem, right?! But the moment he met Jesus, it has never been about him anymore and Paul got to know God in such an intimate way that their relationship almost makes me jealous ^^.

Come on, let’s read closer; Paul has been put to jail, beaten and mistreated but we never read once that he regretted his devotion for Jesus or that our God has been unfair to him. Paul and Jesus had what I would call a great friendship!
Paul understood one thing that for some reason, many Christians today don’t get at all: The goal of us being here is to glorify God and to serve His Kingdom, not ours. Not the little world and kingdom we imagined for us but indeed, the Kingdom of our All Mighty God. And again, without us knowing God personally, misunderstanding of who He is and disappointment will follow on the road.

The original plan for the human being is to worship God. God created us to worship Him and live in His presence. From there flows all the blessings He wants to give us. Why am I sure? because Psalm 37:4 says “Delight in the Lord and He will give you your heart’s desire”.

From there, we all know that putting God first in all what we do is an actual blessing because God will honor our faithfulness. And as He delights in us, His heart of Daddy wants to satisfy our soul.

Today, it’s really clear in my heart that Jesus is first and my life will never be the same as I am pulled closer to Him.
I realize personally how selfish I have been the past years. I always loved and knew God for sure, but oh boy in such a selfish way!
I always felt like God HAD to make me happy, if God says He loves me, He should make me happy.
But happiness doesn’t depend on how we feel today in certain circumstances. Happiness has a way deeper and bigger meaning. Being really happy is to know that we have a God who supplies and loves us no matter whatWe have a Jesus who paid the ultimate price on the cross and gave his life when we were the one supposed to do it. When we understand all what God has done for us and what He keeps doing, happiness takes another definition and direction. We start to be happy even in the midst of suffering, stress, craziness with life, disappointment with people and sickness because God is the strength of our joy. And we will understand this only if we start to know God.


Do you want to be HAPPY? It’s all about knowing Jesus. Don’t delay, ask God the Father to open your heart and touch it in order to get to know Him intimately.
