Crosswalk - An interaction of faith in you, me and God.
Hello Daddy's Children
Daddy inspirations about being a warrior.
I keep getting the word Warrior.
Wow when I look it up it said someone engaged the enemy or experience in warfare. Then I found a deeper meaning that the name warrior means JOY! As well it mentions the clear characteristic is courageous. The qualities of a warrior are one of wisdom, devotion, strength, honor and pride.
Daddy is speaking in mighty ways.
He is calling us to be Warriors for Him to engage the enemy with the Victory of the Cross as a breastplate upon our chest which protects our heart. Wow when I saw that it also means JOY, it reminds me so much that how we are called to be His Joyful warriors remembering we are not defeated by the enemy in our sin or temptations, in otherwise the enemy is defeated by the blood of the lamb whom was slain for us to set us free. Amen. A warrior whom is courageous, whom is not afraid. Did you know in the bible it says 365 times "Do not be Afraid" one for each day. The Lamb of God whom takes away the sins of the world walks by our side, with all the heavens. His right hand is victorious over us. A warrior, whom seeks the Holy Spirit, finds wisdom, a warrior seeks dependence on God finds strength, a warrior follows His commands finds honor with God, a warrior whom is devoted in prayer (rosary) is faithful to him, a warrior whom finds the truth finds selfless pride that he is nothing without him and needs him more.
Increase in us Lord so we may decrease.
We are His Warrior. I claim it in Jesus Name. Continue to stand up to the enemy for in the Name of Jesus you are not defeated you are Victorious through the Power of the Cross. Amen.
For you are not alone as you are aware the heavenly angels fill your place.
Along with our Mama and Sweet Jesus.
In the meantime I just keep seeing this in my heart. Training.
Just like a soldier whom needs to train for battle.
During this time Daddy is training us to be His Warrior.
As the Lord continues to restore His Children, let's continue to go back to the foot of the cross to all that we carry deep in our hearts and we will be transform into the Child of God whom he has called us to be.
The enemy may wants to try to make us feel ashamed and this is a lie to hold us back from being the victorious child of God. This holds us back from growing into holiness; this holds us back from our relationship deepening with the Father. We are not ashamed we are victorious. I say it again we are victorious in Jesus Name. When the enemy attacks and see the warrior whom knows they are not defeated he will leave in Jesus Name and through the intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
I truly experience in my heart he is definitely doing great things to all His children whom He is calling out.
Let's continue to fall face down at the cross!
Thanks for your prayers. I ask you to pray for me that I speak Daddy's will for I have been ask to do a 10 minute testimony of being an effective servant of Christ.
O how he reveals in my heart He hears the cries of our heart. More than I can find words to express. All the dreams and visions he has put on our heart for the building of His Kingdom will come to flourish by the blood of the Lamb.
1. Now I myself, Paul, urge you through the gentleness and clemency of Christ, I who am humble when face to face with you, but brave toward you when absent,
2. I beg you that, when present, I may not have to be brave with that confidence with which I intend to act boldly against some who consider us as acting according to the flesh.
4. for the weapons of our battle are not of flesh but are enormously powerful, capable of destroying fortresses. We destroy arguments
5. and every pretension raising itself against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive in obedience to Christ,
6. and we are ready to punish every disobedience, once your obedience is complete.
7. Look at what confronts you. Whoever is confident of belonging to Christ should consider that as he belongs to Christ, so do we.
8. And even if I should boast a little too much of our authority, which the Lord gave for building you up and not for tearing you down, I shall not be put to shame.
Maybe some of us are wondering why in spite of the fact that we have good speakers and leaders, the community is still not growing as it should be. We try to justify that community growth is not based on quantity but on quality. We sometimes forget that quantity is the product of quality.
The big question or challenge is, "Are we really building a Christian Community or just a group?" If we go back to the time of early Christians which we can read on Acts 2: 42-47, we will note how deep and strong the love of every member for one another was. They did not consider what they have as their own but for everyone in the community.
A Christian Community should be a place of love, hope, peace, joy and healing. Everyone should be an instrument of love, more so, a blessing and inspiration to one another. Everybody should speak, act, and work for the salvation of every member. It should not be a place of intrigue, gossip, judgment and condemnation.
We need to TRUST one another as God trusted us so much. We need to understand that we have different levels of spirituality. Our weakness can be the strength of others and their weakness can be our strength. Although our goal is to be perfect, we cannot be, for only God is perfect. Let us accept the truth that we need one another. Let us support the strength of others and help them on their weaknesses. Let us be humble also to accept the truth that we need the help of others to overcome our weaknesses.
False spirituality is when we become self-righteous as if we are the only ones who are good. True spirituality is when love, patience, understanding, and forgiveness go wider. When we learn to accept the strength and weakness of others and accept our own weaknesses, too.
We need to move forward from the emotional level of love to the spiritual level of love. Emotional level of love focuses so much on feelings, emotions and expectations. If this is not satisfied, it leads to frustration and condemnation. Spiritual level of love is to love like Christ, to understand that we need one another. We need to trust the goodness of the person. Let us not forget that whatever and no matter how big the sin of a person is, God is still doing everything for his salvation, as what He is doing for us, up to the point that He even gave His only begotten Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, to save us. Do not act the other way around, for we have no right to destroy what God is trying to save.
Let us always remember that we are all so precious to God and the value of each one of us is Jesus Himself on the Cross.
Christian Community should be Christ - Love driven!

SPIRITUAL VIDEO PRESENTATION
Peace in the Midst of Storm" by His Eminence, Thomas Cardinal Collins, Archbishop of Toronto
Easy enough for God to say! "Don't worry, Peter. There is no reason to be terrified." Even seasoned veterans know the smell of fear when they launch into perfect storm. And who can blame them? Storm has been seen with casualties. Somebody has to die! Then again, storms are the scary. There are battles against cancer, for example, every bit as hard fought and frightening as armed conflict, battles within families, within the workplace, and even within the church. Not all are terrifying, but all of them are discouraging. So, His Eminence, Thomas Cardinal Collins encourages us on how to claim God's promises under the midst of whatever problems we happen to be facing this very day, he is there with us. Indeed, Peter and the disciples have indisputable proof that God provided a miracle to safeguard his chosen people.
There are many things which can create these storms which come into our lives! The death of a loved one, financial disasters, divorce... when the one you thought you could depend on walks out on you, and many other things which can destroy your happiness and your well being! He is our Blessed Assurance! Put your trust in Him my friend! He is with you and He will bring you through your storm! O Hallelujah! Click play icon or picture to watch the video.
