Briefly unavailable for scheduled maintenance. Check back in a minute.

The words appeared as I was trying to work.  “Briefly unavailable for scheduled maintenance. Check back in a minute.” Clearly their idea of a minute is different than mine. After 11 minutes I realized they are on “daylight wasting time.”

From a dream last night.

I looked at the web page control panel (Something I feel I have been doing a lot lately!) and stared. The options were amazing. Unlike a standard web system where I could control color, font styles, images and such, this one was so much different.

Each panel had options for the “day”. You could choose everything for the environment from weather, location, encounters and outside or inside. You had options on other panel to choose moods, type of interactions and opportunities. The lists were full and amazing. Like an actual control panel, you could leave things open ended or you could get very definitive. You could “trust” in the system or you could become creative and let the uniqueness and personal expression come forth.I awoke from that dream at 2 or so and thought, the message is “simple” that you are in “control” of your destiny. I felt the nudge of the Lord saying, “People have control and influence that they have not tapped into. If they realized how simple it was to change an hour or a day.” I thought how true is that? With one click I can change the background of my web page from white to black. I can add color or light.

underconstructioEveryone has a “page” of life. What you do with it will be your choice on so many levels. Whether you “color” or add “imagery” your basic page will be there for the world to see. Some pages take way more time in the background than is currently appearing. I am sure some of us feel like those “annoying” little icons that say “web site under construction” are appearing on our page.

sound barrierYesterday, I went to prophesy over a woman in our church fellowship who was going to speak. I had heard a loud “bang” earlier and I thought, “thunder snow”…  Except there was no precipitation and no clouds in the sky. It was a spirit thing. When I went to speak over her, I saw the “sonic boom” of her words. When someone breaks the “sound barrier” they are not aware of the noise. Observers hear and witness it. The word I had with it was “turn and see the word of the Lord”.

You do not always see who you impact, whose life you intersect with sometimes. People are watching your “web page” and you may not even know who they are.

As you “program” your day perhaps not everything has to be perfect. Perhaps some things can be left open to chance. Sometimes you need to plan for spontaneity. But as you program basic settings and determinations you will open your life to better things. Maybe not the things you even want or see, but the things you need in your life for the future.

Last week, one of my actual sites, “The Weekly Clarion” suffered a major crash. I had gone to completely update everything! (Sometimes you will feel like you want to change everything. Ever been there?) As my site sat “down” not going anywhere, not being visible to anyone, I was frustrated and trying not to lose peace.  A friend came along and said, “I can fix it”. A few hours later he sent me a set of instructions. One of the instructions was to “shut off” a certain feature. (Ironically the feature was “classified”!) The result of this crash was to learn to be okay with others helping. Everything internally was restored, I had a huge learning curve overcome and now it was just the restoration of basic information.

Was it fun? NO! Did I learn anything? I learned a lot. The basic system was always there. I was not seeing the expression of my thinking and thoughts come forth.

Today begin the process of letting others add value to your life as you begin to choose the “settings” for your destiny and purpose to become manifest.
