Prepare the way of the Lord

COME:
Matthew 3
3 For this is he who was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah, saying: "The voice of one crying in the wilderness: 'Prepare the way of the Lord; Make His paths straight.' "

Luke 1
76 And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Highest; For you will go before the face of the Lord to prepare His ways, 77 To give knowledge of salvation to His people By the remission of their sins, 78 Through the tender mercy of our God, With which the Dayspring from on high has visited us; 79 To give light to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, To guide our feet into the way of peace."


HEAR:
I got stuck on this one line today: Prepare the way of the Lord. How do you prepare the way of the Lord. What does that mean? It's interesting to now too that it wasn't just his mission to prepare the way it was his message. He was the voice crying out: PREPARE THE WAY!

What does it mean to prepare the way? I find in Luke the mission given to him prophetically by his father the priest.

  1. To give knowledge of salvation
  2. To give light to those in darkness
  3. To guide us in the way of peace

Do you see how each begins with give. God is a giver. We who are his are also givers. Our mission is to give. Salvation points to the fact that we were slaves to sin and the curse. But THE BLESSING has been restored. We preach THE BLESSING and all it's benefits (Psalms 103) everywhere we go.

Light refers to understanding. Darkness operates a certain way. In a corporate world darkness says: "Take because you fend for yourself", "Lie to get ahead", "Step on or over others to climb up".

More importantly Darkness says things like: "It's flu season, I get the flu every year. I wonder how bad it's going to be this year?", "I live on a fixed income", "I don't see how I could ever make it", "This kind of bad stuff just happens to me all the time, I must be unlucky", "I know this relationship is bad for me, but I just need her/him".

Light shows us that THE BLESSING prospers us in the midst of famine, heals the incurable disease, and meets every need we have. It's a new way of thinking.

Peace is from the Hebrew word/idea of Shalom. Nothing missing, nothing broken, everything whole and complete! There are ways that lead to life and ways that lead to death.

Proverbs 14:12 NKJV There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.
Proverbs 16:25 NKJV There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.

The natural man says during famine: Hoard, hold, store up. The Spiritual man says: GIVE MORE, sow, increase!

DO:
My mission in life, preparing the way of Jesus into the lives of people around me, AND preparing the way of Jesus to return to this earth and find a glorious church:

  1. To give knowledge of salvation
  2. To give light to those in darkness
  3. To guide us in the way of peace
PRAYER:
Holy Spirit! You are welcome here in my life, heart, mind, house, and ways. Lead and Guide me into all truth and show me things to come so that I can prepare myself, my family, and those I am assigned to coach and train.

John 16:13
13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come , he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear , that shall he speak : and he will shew you things to come .

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

Flavia Antoinette Wolfe: Here's what happened...

Flavia Antoinette Wolfe died this morning (06/25/2018) at approximately 2:45 am PST. For update see

The following is meant to answer some basic questions that everyone's asking me. I'd rather send a link then type or talk it out over and over. I'll add more memories and things later as I recall or rediscover. It's a little cathartic for me, to be able to get it out of my head anyway.

The background leading up to this morning:


On May 24, 2018, I got a text with a picture of a positive pregnancy test followed by "So... Boy, girl, twins?"We made appointments, got excited. Flavia was overweight but in generally good health otherwise, so-say-the-tests. However, the pregnancy hit her hard and fast. She said within a month of that test she was feeling like she did when she was six-months pregnant.06/06/2018: She took the boys to get Fro-Yo, it was nice outside, they decided to walk a…

Resume: God's or Yours?

What if your resume was more about God than you?Do a search for "Resume" online and you'll find things like the "10 words that ruin a resume", "6 tips for writing an effective resume", or simply "How to make a resume".

While these are all fine and good, helpful even, there seems to be a missing link. There's one big thing that's not being said by the experts about resume's that needs to be said.

What is a resume?Recently I was talking with a close friend who is a hiring manager.During the conversation he made a point that struck home with me. He said: "What do your qualifications, or those of the other interviewees, have to do with your getting hired? It's the Favor of God that's going to promote you in due time, not your qualifications."

WOAH! What a a great reminder! It's about God, not about me!
In addition, he noted how he has so often seen a resume embellished or enhanced in an attempt to sell "how gre…
