Today I heard a song on the radio. A certain line stuck with me: "Lord let me be a living sermon, because folks would rather see than hear one." As I was rehearsing it when I was grocery shopping, I accidentally said, "Lord let me be a living legend."

As soon as I said that, I realized the Lord had filled my mouth and I said, "Uh Oh!" He nailed me. I’d had a very crabby and insecure day, but no matter how crabby, I knew He'd still called me, and I just couldn’t run from that. In the car, I finally got the victory by shouting at the top of my lungs, "Hallelujah!! Thank You Jesus!" It was so loud it startled even me. I felt my cheeks turn red and I felt much better.

UPDATE FUNNY CONFIRMATION: I found out later that the same day Grandma Anna heard the Lord say, "Laughter, laughter. Rise up and be silent. Prophesying prophet. Computer. Your task." That is a funny pun and confirmation to, "Folks would rather see than hear one." I love how He speaks to us!


When I got home I typeset a business card for Cornerstone Masonry. The logo was a bunch of bricks being mortared together, with a trowel. There was a Christian fish in the bottom corner. I was thinking about rebuilding the walls after the spiritual war, and wondering how the Lord was going to do this.

QUICKENED GLANCE: At that moment my eye bounced to the bottom of my business card template where I had a pre-typed sentence for ease in formatting: It said, "Trust the Lord for Growth." He was answering my question of the moment.

QUICKENED BLOOPER: Then I made a typo. The line was supposed to say, "Quality work at an affordable price." I typed Quality Word at an affordable price! He is so fun.

Acts 15:16 KJV

After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up:



"A good example has twice the value of good advice." When I saw this my heart connected it with the Lord saying. "Folks would rather see than hear one."

My people are tired and crabby, having been plundered by delays in a long spiritual war. I will rebuild them one Word at a time as they trust Me for their growth. I will do a quality work among them and although there will be a cost, it will be filled with My great grace and be affordable.

I will send My loved ones forth as examples of My living sermons, as the world would rather see one than hear one. In the mean time, their personal stories of how I have spoken into their life shall become living legends for the generations who follow in their footsteps. I will plant their testimonies as memorial stones.

"Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men: Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart." (2 Cor 3:2-3 KJV)
