Our Almighty God, our Lord Jesus, inspired Prophets by the Holy Spirit to make Himself known to us long ago. Our Father does NOT withhold the truth from us. "You who call yourselves citizens of the holy city and claim to rely on the God of Israel — the LORD Almighty is His name: I foretold the former things long ago, My mouth announced them and I made them known; then suddenly I acted, and they came to pass. For I knew how stubborn you were; your neck muscles were iron, your forehead was bronze. Therefore I told you these things long ago; before they happened I announced them to you so that you could not say, ‘My images brought them about; my wooden image and metal god ordained them.’ You have heard these things; look at them all. Will you not admit them?" ISAIAH 48:3-6 ~ On my knees I take it, take it ~ dropping my resistance, dropping my pride, dropping it low and surrendering all to You oh Lord who sits on the highest sovereign throne! Lord Jesus I admit my sin of stubbornness, my unyielding stiff neck of iron that avoided a communion, a conference of listening and obedience to You. Forgive me Lord Jesus for my idolatry of music, and the Internet to mingle and meet a man of God. Forgive me for the idle time spent online to pacify my desire for a mate, and to be recognized for any accomplishment. Forgive my lack of trust in You, and for my impatience. ~ “From now on I will tell you of new things, of hidden things unknown to you. They are created now, and not long ago; you have not heard of them before today. So you cannot say, ‘Yes, I knew of them.’ You have neither heard nor understood; from of old your ears have not been open. Well do I know how treacherous you are; you were called a rebel from birth. For my own name’s sake I delay my wrath; for the sake of My praise I hold it back from you, so as not to destroy you completely. See, I have refined you, though not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction. For my own sake, for my own sake, I do this. How can I let myself be defamed? I will not yield My glory to another." ISAIAH 48:6-11 ~ AMAZING that in the year 2011 ~ that my eyes and ears have been opened to see and to hear what the Spirit spoke 200 years before Jesus was born, and 26 years after I was spiritually reborn. “Listen to Me, Jacob, Israel, whom I have called: I am He; I am the first and I am the last. My own hand laid the foundations of the earth, and My right hand spread out the heavens; when I summon them, they all stand up together." ISAIAH 48:12-13 ~ Listen to God the Father Barbara, whom the Lord has called, God is the first and the last to be praised for He laid the foundations of the earth and by His right hand He spread out the stars of the universe. “Come near me and listen to this: “From the first announcement I have not spoken in secret; at the time it happens, I am there.” And now the Sovereign LORD has sent Me, endowed with His Spirit. This is what the LORD says— your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel:
“I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go. If only you had paid attention to my commands, your peace would have been like a river, your well-being like the waves of the sea." ISAIAH 48:16-19 ~ My Lord calls me by name, 'Barbara come near to Me and listen to this! From the first announcement in Genesis - your Father kept NO SECRETS. At the time it happens, at the first of all creation, during the age of time - the Father, Son and Holy Spirit was there! NOW that my Lord God sent Jesus to earth as a man, to walk and talk with us, to experience every emotion; including fear, jealousy, rejection, and every temptation ~ so that today Barbara would KNOW HIS compassion and LOVE for her. Like Jesus submitted to death on a cross, so too Barbara dies to herself. Jesus told His disciples that He must go so that God would send the Counselor to comfort and guide us. His promised ETERNAL HOLY SPIRIT lives inside Barbara ~ to teach her what is best for her and to direct Barbara in the WAY to go. God gave her the Old Testament as a witness to disobedience, and to compel her to obey that she may have PEACE like a river in this day ~ 2011 years after Jesus ~ My God is an AWESOME GOD, He reigns on heaven and earth ~ and again I bow to the cross and submit my life, hopes and dreams to Christ as His willing servant. AMEN


  1. "For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be." PSALM 139:13

  2. Thinking of you.... Maryann Callhan

    She can deal with stress and carry heavy burdens. She smiles when she feels like screaming, and she sings when she feels like crying. She cries when she's happy and laughs when she's afraid. Her love is unconditional. There's only one thing wrong with her. She forgets what she's worth!

  3. Thank you Barbara for your prayers and our conversation. I appreciate all of the wisdom you share. which comes from trials and experience. I will heed your advice, dear woman in Christ. And thank you again for your friendship. Enjoy being pursued by Preacher John. That too, is awesome. By the way, I sent the brave-teacher blog post to another teacher here in the state of Washington. Be blessed in the Christ we serve this day dear woman. All for now. W ~
