Linda Mose Meadows Guest Host @ WOKB Radio
Many, O LORD my God, are the wonders you have done. The things you planned for us no one can recount to you; were I to speak and tell of them, they would be too many to declare. Psalm 40:5
Three times a charm! This old expression resonated in my spirit when I realized that I needed to blog about this weeks exciting, upcoming event with Jill Capri Simms. She is a humble and generous woman of God; an anointed ministry leader, music composer, soon to be newly published author and an insightful trail blazer. I encourage you to visit her website at: http://liberatingtruth.wix.com/jcsimms.
As an adult I’ve heard it said that, “three times a charm” and lately I am prone to believe that. I suppose the sentiment is that by the third undertaking you should be able to embark upon a familiar task with great ease. That could and should be the case but the flipside is that faith and favor aren’t predicated on intellect and repetitive activities. Thank God for Jesus and his open door policy! He will bless you in multiple ways you can’t fathom but truly will applaud. There are occasions when we have to repeat some life lessons before we can comfortably maneuver and hit our stride. But truthfully this isn’t about our natural stride at all! It’s about understanding that God’s sweet grace and mercy have everything to do with our navigating, surviving “successfully” down the dusty tracks of life. And being well acquainted with the trinity: the benevolent Holy Father; the loving Son, Jesus Christ and relying on the constant companion, the Holy Ghost! Now that’s hitting your stride! Three times is indeed a charm!
Jill understands the power of our triune God! God mercifully plants the right people on our paths to encourage us and show us the way. My conversations with Jill confirm that.
God has gifted each of us and no matter what we perceive as our impact it’s vital to remember that the focus isn’t about us. Ministers like Jill and my husband really walk well in the truth of those shoes! Like Max Lucado says, “It’s not about you!” I realize this recent blessing God has bestowed upon me is far bigger and more important than me. Clearly I see it now! It’s about Jesus’ agenda and what he desires to do for us, in us, and yes, indeed through us! It depends upon us and our receptivity to the divine encounter had with the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost which leads us into all truth about God’s instructions and plans for us! But will we believe our sacred encounter when it occurs? Jill addresses that question eloquently in her upcoming radio show and actively demonstrates it in her multifaceted ministry.
(I am a witness: be a willing, prayerful vessel and watch what unfolds!) I trust that you too will choose to believe that our availability and faith in God works in direct concert with His divine plan. Relax and trust that our faith journeys include a divine plan (an intended “service” plan) that works well in conjunction with God’s kingdom building here on earth. Either way, if we partner with Jesus it’s definitely a win-win outcome! And oh yes, our partnership garners an encounter straight from the throne room. Even the fiery darts and unwelcome trials which weigh heavy upon us won’t topple over us.
I pray that you’ll join me on Thursday, September 13th at 6:15pm. This will be my third weekly trek to Florida’s Urban Empowerment Radio station and I am happily reporting. My first visit on Thursday, September 6th, 2012 was as Jill’s guest author sharing my devotional: The Blessedness of Believing A Devotional Journey of Life’s Lessons and God’s Promises. Today, I am giddy with excitement because on this third visit I will return to WOKB 1680 AM as the guest host for Jill Capri Simm’s Liberating Truth which airs on Thursdays at 6:15pm. Hope you’ll listen in and learn more about Jill’s ministry and her soon to be released book: Him: Encounters with the Third Person.
God is surely in the blessing business and it’s good to realize that His encounters and blessings extend beyond the third, fourth and fifth times. Who knows what my future holds for media broad casting, and beyond but one of the things I am most comfortable about is the assurance that God does have a good and righteous plan for my life, for Jill’s ministry endeavors which doesn’t exempt you! Just imagine the wonderful encounters the Holy Spirit has awaiting you! It’s a matter of choice, a sure safety net! Turn on the radio up Ricky, Liberating Truth is on!
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Jeremiah 28:11 NIV
