Mourning In The Morning

2015-09-05 12.52.11I grew up in a generation of turmoil. But our turmoil seemed to have a respect factor, even in disagreement. I was a child of the 60’s and if you see some of my shirts you know that hasn’t changed all that much!

We were seeking something. Anything. Continue reading Mourning In The Morning

A Dark Horse?

lee1-150x150.jpgI was thinking about a friends recent Facebook post with regard to the elections and how he wondered if the person who will be elected is perhaps not even in the running yet.

I thought a little bit about that and I think many years ago that might have been true that there would have been somebody who could have come out of nowhere and change things and I’m not saying it can’t happen but I wonder if these things work against it. Continue reading A Dark Horse?

Declare – Thoroughly Make Clear

"Use me!"
“Use me!”

Yesterday had been a rough day on some fronts and as I was just falling off to sleep, I was awakened.

“Declare, declare, declare.”

What?

“Declare!”

My attention was being caught and my sleep was eradicated. A download of heaven was happening.

I grabbed my phone and began to research.

Origin

Middle English: from Latin declarare, from de- ‘thoroughly’ + clarare ‘make clear’ (from clarus ‘clear’).

I heard before I even grabbed my phone. “Add light. Clarify, make clear.” Not just clear, BUT thoroughly clear.

I have always believed that what you say is important. After last night I believe it more than ever. Is it possible declarations of the negative kind are making the atmosphere negative? That positive ones add light and life?

I know I will have more on this but I would be interested in how this might affect you.

Religion, Politics or The Kingdom

"Use me!"
“Use me!”

Each day we awake we are given a choice. What we will do with that choice often determines the quality of our life, our relationships and our endeavors.

Lately, there is a lot of talk about politics and religion. But not so much about the Kingdom.

Frankly, only one has any real appeal to me. I am sure you will discover it. Continue reading Religion, Politics or The Kingdom

God Bless You!

leejohndrowteamYesterday I had an encounter with a person so bitter over Christmas, it offended her.

I shared a bit about it yesterday.

However they got to that place of hurting did not matter. They were there. So much so they would break policy and find themselves constantly on the lookout for their boss to change the music back. Continue reading God Bless You!

Dominion – Requires Renewing

leejohndrowteamToday is the first time I have written in this style for a while. I have been very focused on my books and getting some things done. Cleaned up, rewriting and such. (Since June I have completed the following books:one on fathers, one on hearing God, a 30 day devotional that will ultimately become a 1 year book, a book on Christmas, a book on revival and started a children’s book.)
