Quiet Time Results

COME:
Matthew 10:26-27 NKJV
26 Therefore do not fear them. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known. 27 "Whatever I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; and what you hear in the ear, preach on the housetops.

Matthew 10:26-27 (GOD'S WORD Translation)
26 So don't be afraid of them. Nothing has been covered that will not be exposed. Whatever is secret will be made known. 27 Tell in the daylight what I say to you in the dark. Shout from the housetops what you hear whispered.

HEAR: 
How often do I speak what's on my mind? Answer: Often! How often do I make sure that what's on my mind is the Word of God? Answer: Not often enough! How often do I stay silent unless God has spoken? Answer: Rarely!

Many of us humans love to speak. We love to hear ourselves speak. We don't often remain silent very well. Isn't this verse asking us to speak? Yes. It's asking us to speak something very specific. What God tells you in secret or whispers in your ear.

If 'm not spending time with Him in the dark, quiet, secret place than I won't have heard anything to say from Him.

Matthew 6:6 NKJV 
But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.

Psalm 91
1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

By spending time in His secret place I hear from Him. I get to hear things in my alone time that I can proclaim loudly from the roof tops, or from space even, which is technically what I'm doing right now as the internet lives travel under and over ground and even by satellite.

My secret place, lately, has been my office, at night when everyone else is asleep, or sometimes the car on the way to work. Where is your secret place? Have you spent time hearing from God? Turn off the radio, talk show, TV, Star Trek, Facebook, etc... Spend some time hearing from God.

Kenneth Hagin commented that some people say: "I don't know about those people who hear from God..." His reply was "I don't know about those people who don't!" If you are not hearing from God maybe your receiver needs fixing? That is the right, privilege, and responsibility of the believer is to hear the Masters Voice.

Isaiah 30:21
21 Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, "This is the way, walk in it," Whenever you turn to the right hand Or whenever you turn to the left.


DO:
I am going to make sure I spend time in the presence of God in song, study, fellowship, and prayer. Turning off the distractions around me.

PRAYER:
Holy Spirit, you are welcome hear. Come into this room and make it your sanctuary. Fill this room and my heart with your perceived presence. Speak to me. Here I am. Your servant is listening.

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…

Writing Prompt | Room and Bored

At the Heart Writers group meeting tonight, led by Lauren Stinton, we did a short writing prompt.

You have seven minutes to write (fiction or nonfiction) and it must include these three items/themes:

Jesus is Lord of allPrincessCat
Here is my result, with a bit of post-meeting editing and addition. Keep in mind, I wrote it in OneNote on my phone...

*** Room and Bored The light amplified through the double glass window pane, despite the clawed dusty drapes, warming Princess' furry belly. She was Queen of this castle and she held the honor with dignity.

Her human was a good servant. He brought her food at the appointed time. He changed her box. He performed his part admirably.

Then her life shattered.

Her human walked in the front door and laid a box on the table. "Princess, I have a surprise for you, " He said.

She rolled off the couch back and sauntered over. The pawed the box. It moved. She jumped back, "Moew," she cried.

A soft rumble came from the box.

Her hu…

Have you died yet today?

Recently, I said I wasn't religious but I did have a relationship with Jesus. The person replied that is a "textbook" response for a Christian; therefore, I am a Christian; therefore, I am religious.

I have to laugh because "religion" is the dead following of dead traditions. The difference between my two-way relationship with a real living person (Jesus) and a religious person is the difference between a Tree and a Motorcycle. They have nothing to do with one-another.

Yet, I can see how they get it. Religious people would read this passage and see something totally different than I see, yet we read the same passage.
...anyone who has died has been set free from sin... In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus... Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey—whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?

te'-man (teman, "on the right," i.e. "south"; Thaiman): The name of a district and town in the land of Edom, named after Teman the grandson of Esau, the son of his firstborn, Eliphaz (Genesis 36:11 1 Chronicles 1:36).

Husham of the land of the Temanites was one of the ancient kings of Edom (Genesis 36:34 1 Chronicles 1:45). From Obad 1:9 we gather that Teman was in the land of Esau (Edom). In Amos 1:12 it is named along with Bozrah, the capital of Edom. In Ezekiel 25:13 desolation is denounced upon Edom: "From Teman even unto Dedan shall they fall by the sword." Dedan being in the South, Teman must be sought in the North Eusebius, Onomasticon knows a district in the Gebalene region called Theman, and also a town with the same name, occupied by a Roman garrison, 1…
