BREAK THE RULES

BREAK THE RULESBREAK THE RULES
My friends, I remember looking at this movie one day. It told the story of a man who wanted to become a doctor. Not just any doctor but a doctor that makes his patient laughs as part of their treatment.
This movie was based on a true story.
The first year medical student was breaking the rules passed down through the years. He was told that doctors are to treat the illness not the person. Doctors were to have their patients lie in bed, with no noise or movement and wait until they (the doctor) did their thing to heal them.
The lead doctor (the teacher) could not accept the young doctor’s ideas. The teacher told him that this is the way it has been done for years and the training come from some of the best minds in the field.
This one-year medical student could not come in and change things that his father, grandfather and his great grandfather before him were doing. The young doctor just didn’t know enough.
The teacher couldn’t see what the young doctor could see. The young doctor was looking through new eyes and peering deeply into the spirit of the patient. He showed love and compassion.
I compare it to what some churches are doing today.
The people (patients) come into the church (hospital) and sit there and the Pastor (doctor) tells the church what they think people need to hear. They cannot move or laugh unless asked to. You are just sitting there listening to the Preacher beat you down.
The Pastor is not letting the Spirit of God move over the people. The Spirit gives them what they need to get well. The Pastor has an agenda-on what he wants to say. His teacher has told him, “This is how it is done. You write it down on paper the night before. Whether or not the Spirit shows up; you keep going with the paper.”
Actually, you walk out of church sicker than you were before you went in. You just keep going back each time because you think it’ll get better someday.
If some Pastors would let the Spirit of God move in the church, the Spirit can touch people and they would be healed.
Each day, when I look at a movie or anything in life, I ask the Holy Spirit to teach me what I should learn through this experience. We do nothing without Him knowing. If you listen to that still voice in your head, He will tell you what movie to pick out at the store. This is how much He loves us.
The Word is the Spirit of God. This is what drew people to Jesus and His disciples. The Spirit of God is released through His Word.
If you just read your Bible and ask the Holy Spirit to teach you, He will show you how Jesus is laughter, happiness, peace, love, and joy.
Let’s break the mold! We have it all wrong!
Go to church, and laugh with joy and do not let anyone stop you.
The movie ended with the young doctor, starting the first hospital where doctors treat the whole patient. They found that laughter helps the patients heal faster.
I am singing, dancing and praising my God for what breaking tradition (rules) really mean.
God Bless You

SITTING AT THE FEET OF JESUS

SITTING AT THE FEET OF JESUS  JULY 2014 SITTING AT THE FEET OF JESUS
We all are doing things that are good. We are helping the needy, feeding the poor, giving our time to the sick.
We are doing so much that we cannot find time in our day/week to do anytime else. We go to church ever Sunday and some of us go during the week. We are learning about God’s Word, what Jesus said, and what the disciples did.
The church is telling you that what you are doing is good; this is what Jesus wants you to do. They are right; it is what some of us should be doing. But not all of us; only the one’s He has call to do that work.
It is one job Jesus has called all of us to do, and that is to stop and listen.
Stop talking, stop preaching, stop moving, just come and set at His feet and listen.
Let Him teach you, let Him talk to you, let Him tell you when and where He wants you to go, what He wants you to do this day. He tells us day by day, “I will give you your daily bread”. “I will give you the Word”.
Do not get so busy that you do not have the time to set at Jesus’ feet and listen. Do not get so concerned about time and whether or not we have enough to get all the things done. Saying things like;”There is not enough help, “all these people need to be feed,” “I have a meeting at church today”, or “I must go by and see Sister Jones because she is ill”.
When Jesus Himself is talking to you and you hear Him, that soft voice in your ear telling you to stop-Jesus will not stop you. He will not make you listen to Him. He will not make you do anything against your will.
Luck 10:38-42, the story is about two sisters Martha and Mary. [I’ll paraphrase a little here.] Jesus and His disciples have come for dinner; try to put yourself in their place. What would you do if Jesus was at your house for dinner? Martha was running around (can you see her). She is setting the table, pulling out the best plates, and there is nothing to drink. She stopped and thought about a center-piece for the table but there was no time to get it. Then she wanted to know where Mary was and why she was not helping. Martha needed someone to go the store (Wal-Mart) to get drinks. Martha was so busy. It was a good thing she was doing after all she had Jesus Himself at her table and about fifteen other Godly men there. Right?
Martha wanted to get them fed and they would talk afterwards. She wanted Mary to help her, she wanted Mary to stop listening to Jesus and come and help her in the kitchen. Martha believed that she was right in what she wanted; she was doing a good thing, so she went to Jesus with her complaints. She asked, “Do you not care that Mary has left me to serve alone?”
Listen what Jesus said to her: “Martha, Martha you are so worried and troubled about many things,” but the one thing you should be worried about Mary has found out what it is and I will not stop her from doing it.”
What Mary found out was that sitting at the feet of Jesus and LISTENING was the best thing to do.
If you stop and sit at the feet of Jesus before you move out to do anything, The Holy Spirit will make time for you. The Holy Spirit will give you the time you need to do all those things with ease.
He tells us: “Come to Me all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
Just put Him first.

God Bless You,
