It's time for me to Move

Exodus 13:21 By day the LORD went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them on their way and by night in a pillar of fire to give th e m light, so t hat they could travel by day or night. Greetings Be Inspired Friends! Today after almost 13 years with my current employer, I leave; making today my last day at my job.   I believe the Lord has moved me and I am excited to see how the new advent u re will unfold.   As always, I hope that the character of Christ may shine through this vessel; at t i mes filled with flaws, but surrendered for his use. Pray for m e!   Looking forward to continuing our "email relation s hi p ".  I move to a new place of employment; not a new position in the Kingdom!   Hallelujah! I seek to please you Lord, be my guide! God bless you!~Liz www.lizrod.com

A Witness Left Behind

Mark 5:1-20 (NIV) They went across the lake to the region of the Gerasenes. When Jesus got out of the boat, a man with an evil spirit came from the tombs to meet him. This man lived in the tombs, and no one could bind him any more, not even with a chain. For he had often been chained hand and foot, but he tore the chains apart and broke the irons on his feet. No one was strong enough to subdue him. Night and day among the tombs and in the hills he would cry out and cut himself with stones. When he saw Jesus from a distance, he ran and fell on his knees in front of him. He shouted at the top of his voice, “What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? Swear to God that you won’t torture me!” For Jesus had said to him, “Come out of this man, you evil spirit!” Then Jesus asked him, “What is your name?” “My name is Legion,” he replied, “for we are many.” And he begged Jesus again and again not to send them out of the area. A large herd of pigs was feeding on the nearby hill

Lord of the Sabbath

John 5:1-15 The Healing at the Pool Some time later, Jesus went up to Jerusalem for a feast of the Jews. Now there is in Jerusalem near the Sheep Gate a pool, which in Aramaic is called Bethesda and which is surrounded by five covered colonnades. Here a great number of disabled people used to lie—the blind, the lame, the paralyzed. One who was there had been an invalid for thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, he asked him, “Do you want to get  well?” “Sir,” the invalid replied, “I have no one to help me into the pool when the water is stirred. While I am trying to get in, someone else goes down ahead of me.”Then Jesus said to him, “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.” At once the man was cured; he picked up his mat and walked.The day on which this took place was a Sabbath, and so the Jews said to the man who had been healed, “It is the Sabbath; the law forbids you to carry your mat.” But he replied,

Ephesians 2:4-5  But becau s e of his great love for us, God, who is r i ch in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgression s —it is by grace you have been saved. Good morning "Be Inspired" Family & Friends! I usually don't repeat the message I send you every m o rning.   But today, I have chosen to repeat this one. Yes, you guessed it, Mercy & Grace, my fu r ry fa m ily me m bers turned one year old on Saturday. These precious critters have brought me much laugh t er as they run through the house, constantly playing together and at times destroying everything in their path.  It ' s very rare to ever see them apart. Mercy & Grace seem to enjoy being together all the time.   They often follow me though out the house...you would think I have two doggies :)   Hmmm . ..I ju s t love it!  God is s o good to me! -----YEAR WAS 2011 On Thur sd ay, July 14t h , after the d eath of my beautiful kitty Bunny..

Remembering my Friend Janet

John 11 : 25-26 (NIV) Jesus said to her, “I am the res u rrection and the life. He who belie v es in me will li v e, even though he dies; and whoever li v es and believes in me will never die. Do you believe thi s ?” Today I want to honor my sister-in-Christ and fri e nd, J a net Martinez, who i s now out of our sight and beholding the face of o ur Lord.  I met Janet years ago through mutual friends; friends or better said s i sters-in-the Lord. I met her through my sister Diana & brother Ruben. I knew her thro ug h Vivian and I knew her via Adrianne. Something beautiful happens when lives are touched by t h e Spirit of God.  Ordinary people; people who at one time did not know how m uch God loved them; regular every day folk livi n g life one day at a time. People with dreams and hopes. Men and women f rom all walks of life inter a cting and then sometime happens. Jesus, known to those who h ear his
