[Poured Out in Ministry]


EXPERIENCE 3/09/04: I had just been thinking about the PonderWord that went out on yesterday's post, "Time to Recharge Your Batteries."

QUICKENED EYE GLANCE: As I was pondering that Word (while on errands), my eye suddenly glanced to a sign that read: "Interstate Batteries Sold Here."

FUNNY EXPERIENCE: We have now pulled into the store called Batteries Plus. This was not the same place as the above glance and I realized the Lord is confirming His parable about batteries. While I am waiting for Wayne, I am humored at what has just taken place. There are 2 trucks in the lot next to our car. One guy is hooking up to a fellow's truck. As he walks over to hook up the cables to the disabled truck, the fellow cringes and jumps out of the way. He obviously had tried to hook up cables before and experienced all the sparks flying when plugged in the wrong direction!


DRAINED IN MINISTRY - Time to Recharge

QUICKENED WORD PUN 11/9/03: After totally spending myself beyond my physical limits in a ministry situation, I was sitting in a car waiting for my ride to the train station. I was feeling totally wiped out and asked the Lord to recharge my batteries. I turned on my PC to find a PonderWord and a sign came up that said the battery was low and needed recharging. I chuckled at this quickened Word pun from the Lord!

I decided I needed a Word to Ponder so bad that it was worth getting the charger out and hooking up. I had been thinking about His promise that after my personally overcoming a long war, I would be sent as a doctor to help others recover from their own wars. I asked Him for a Word and then scrolled to the following wonderful confirmation to what I had been thinking:


What's coming Doc? Yep, that's what's coming! It's healing in a new day and you shall walk in a new level of anointing. I will make you like doctors of healing and you shall become My instruments for even the most delicate surgeries. And these patients won't have to pay anything. For My healing waters shall be freely given to all who would come.

It is just around the corner Beloved. I will surround you with My protection and covering. You shall live and dwell within the anointing of My Presence.

"Is anyone thirsty? Come and drink--even if you have no money! Come, take your choice of wine or milk--it's all free! Why spend your money on food that does not give you strength? Why pay for food that does you no good? Listen, and I will tell you where to get food that is good for the soul!" (Isa 55:1-2 NLT)


My weary one, you are just like the lap top computer. Your battery can only go so far before you must return to your power Source. You know exactly what that means. So come now and plug yourself in.

"Who is this coming up from the wilderness, leaning upon her beloved?" (Song 8:5




SIDE BAR NOTE: I have about 500 pages of Words to Ponder, (written from my rhema) in a file. Just like "anointed hands" when I turn to a scripture or a quickened Word in a book that exactly hits the spot, I often scroll in my PC the same way. My eye has glanced down the right hand side of the scroll bar to a certain location and then I scroll to that place to whatever Word is waiting for me. The Lord has used these Words to Ponder over and over again to feed, strengthen, guide, confirm and encourage me. His Words never seem to grow old or outdated. I know they are from Him for the relevant situation, when they are exactly pertinent to what I am thinking, praying, or dealing with.


The Words that I speak are alive. They give life. Some times you question if what you hear is My Word for your life. If I were to hook you to a jumper cable and charge you back to life, does it charge someone else? No, it is meant for your life. Does the battery question the Source of the charge? No, it simply detects life and energy and receives it. My Word connects with your heart and charges you with belief. My Words put a bounce in your walk of faith, by giving you a momentary lift off for the next step.

John 6:63 NKJV

It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.


[Continued] DRAINED IN MINISTRY - Time to Recharge

EXPERIENCE: I am now driving the final jaunt home from the train station physically exhausted and wiped out. I have been reduced to whining and misery.

HILARIOUS QUICKENED EYE GLANCE: As I was whining to the Lord for more strength, my eye fell on the freeway billboard. It said, "Enough Already."

I was totally tickled at this and found the energy to laugh, then my eye went to the other side of the freeway at another billboard. There was a picture of mother Teresa. The caption said, "Reaching beyond your limits with compassion."

HEARD [after I collapsing in bed at home] Well done thou good and faithful student.




{Words to Ponder are summaries of His quickened Words}


My special warrior child, I have watched you bravely stand strong against the opposing forces. I carefully surrounded you with My protection and covering as you poured yourself out as a soldier. You reached way beyond your own limits with compassion for others even weaker then yourself. Now you are totally spent. Enough already!

Your batteries need recharging. You have learned well the secret to My power. It is being plugged into My Presence and My Word. It is leaning upon Me in all that you do, and knowing your Source of life and strength.

I AM calling you into a new place dear one. It is a governmental mantle. You shall be given the authority and power to release the captives and heal them from their warrior wounds. Even as you were wounded and recovered, so shall you recover others. This will be a new level of anointing, for I AM turning up the dial on your giftings and My power shall flow even stronger then you have known.

Ps 71:17-18 NKJV

O God, You have taught me from my youth; and to this day I declare Your wondrous works. Now also when I am old and gray headed, O God, do not forsake me, until I declare Your strength to this generation, Your power to everyone who is to come.
