****Being God's Ground Crew****

Good Morning Happy Sunday, I pray we all had a blessed weekend, and that wherever we are this weekend we be a blessing and a bright light, making those who know what we're going through ask us how we go through what we do with a smile, and than we get to glorify the Father, and bring one of His children home and back to the path that God chose for them to be on, or perhaps we will meet someone who can give us some encouragement and rejuvenation by talking ...and sharing our Father's words. All I know is that if we have God at the front of our minds than we are guaranteed a good day, because we have our eyes on Jesus and not our circumstances. As we read in:

Hebrews 12:2-3New International Version (NIV)
2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

Thank you Father for the Sacrifice of Your Son, our Savior, for walking by our side in all situations, I pray for those who are suffering in any way, and that we remember our Father's words above, remember He wants the best for us, that He equipped us for all circumstances with a full set of Armor as He speaks of in:

Ephesians 6: 10-17 10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

The world is beginning to resemble just what the Lord forewarned us would happen, and sadly He explained it was only the beginning, so you can only imagine how important it is we wear our armor daily. Would you walk into a quarantined building without a protective suit? I think not, nor can we go out into our day not knowing what lies ahead without first consulting with our Lord on the day which He has planned, and secondly, prepared by being fully equipped. May our week reveal all our Father's gifts and blessings on our path, may the enemy be kept at bay by our preparedness,
and may we all be a vehicle, that Shines our Lord's Light for all in the dark to find their way home. We lift this and all things up in the blood and name of Jesus Christ Amen

I hope the below poem from my upcoming Devotional "Poems of the Eternal Heart a Daily Devotional" inspires your week. :)

We Must Always Be Prepared
It's just a natural reflex,
when someone that you love,
is headed towards the danger zone
and suddenly needs a shove,
For how many times have we set out
on a path we thought was right,
only to find out once we arrived,
our assignment was not in sight.
That's why communication is
 the key we must behold,
though talking is important,
it's in the listening where we're told,
Exactly why He keeps us here
so He can use us as He needs,
for we're His mighty vehicles
with whom He spreads His seeds.
To rescue all His children
is the goal at hand,
if only we'd remember
it's His footprints in the sand....
