A Word from the Lord.....Featuring Tracy Teppler

I love how God uses people and I love it and am humbled by when the Lord sometimes uses me in some small way.  I love when someone is desperate for a touch, a word, from God and... they get it.  I love when one is in church and you see how people have been touched by God.

I WANT THAT TOO..

I WANT THAT... for me too.  My husband and I have been going through a very hard thing and its culminating in a court case on the 7th of February, but I have been fearful and alternating between begging the Lord to intervene before then, or begging Him to make it go away!  We have been trying to do all the right things, like reading God's word, trusting Him, speaking His word over the situation... But it is TOUGH to have faith in the face of the enemy's attempts at destruction when you have been standing for so long.

And then.... WOW!

The morning after a 5 1/2 hour meeting with our lawyers to prepare for the court case, the morning after being emotionally drained and emptied, I go on facebook.  You know, check out what everyone is saying, looking for positive thoughts, great scriptures and someone else on facebook, a continent away starts chatting with me and 5 minutes in she says the following:

What I hear is God saying, "Pray for her to have bubbling laughter at the very mention of this situation, that the joy would pour from her." And what I see is it is like a weapon, and every time Satan tries to goad you with this, you bubble with joy and laughter, and he is so enraged by your reaction, he leaves. And I feel like the Lord says this is YOUR personal weapon that He has fashioned just for you. Have you asked for joy in the presence of your enemies or something?
and then...
 I keep seeing you in a room sitting at a wooden table. It looks like what i think a courtroom would look like. Big ceiling fans hanging down.  And instead of being anxious, you almost cannot contain yourself. You are filled to overflowing with joy and laughter.
WOW, goose bumps, chills, tears!  This is a woman I have never met, this is a woman who knows nothing about this other than the previous day was tough for me in this meeting.

LAUGHTER, JOY, OVERFLOWING...

I can never again say, "I want a word from the Lord"  because I have now had an awesome word from the Lord.  I can hang on to it for dear life with much laughter, and much joy bubbling forth from the Lord, from inside my heart.

Don't give up waiting and longing and desiring a word from the Lord.  Seek Him and He will be found.
Jer 29 v 13:  And you shall seek me, and find me, when you shall search for me with all your heart.  

 Enjoy God bless
Tracy

  3. Oh, Tracey, that is such a goose bumps story! Can't wait to here more on the story. But God is always the biggest BUT of all...and also the best intervention comes from the most unexpected places. So glad that this sweet friend reminded you just so with the But God just right for you...

    But God has revealed those things to us by his Spirit. 1 Corinthians 2:10 For the Spirit searches everything, even the deep things of God.Oh I am inspired to write about that now!
    HUGS!

  5. Tracey, from what I've read so far, you DO have a word from the Lord--His Word.........as He's been speaking to you about not caring at all WHEN we read it, but THAT we read it.

    And, He's given you the blessing of speaking through someone half way around the world just to let you know He sees you.
    Oh, He's a great big God.

    Thanks for sharing this story.

  6. Saw you were guest posting over here and had to come read it! I'm glad I did. You know, I really think that prayer online is not really taken seriously a lot of the time. But, just as this situation, God can move through the internet to place a sentence or two at just the right time for just the right person. Praise God for His no boundaries pursuit. :)

  7. I have found more support through my challenges in this beautiful community than I have on this side of the computer - the prayers have sustained me, encouraged me - and understood, teaching me more how to live grace and hope - and unconditional love. Beautiful testimony of how He reaches us:)

    (so excited about the results, too :)

  8. Hi Tracy, I so desire to hear Him speak. He has been so good to me. He does speak and we must encourage others to know He has given us spiritual ears to hear. But also are natural ones. May everything work out quickly!
    Blessings, Roxy

Fresh Bread

Give us this day our daily bread.......  The smell of fresh baked bread never fails to have my mouth watering and my nose on high alert, not to mention the warm savory taste each bite brings with melted butter dripping over and drizzling down my finger tips. To say I love fresh bread is an understatement at the very least. Bread that gives me nourishment is not to be wasted, and neither is the spiritual bread my daddy God has for me.

The last week or so, when my alarm starts ringing and before my eyes are open, I ask the Lord to give my daily bread. A fresh word, a warm aroma, and a sweet taste of his bread (word) to begin my day. Now I must be honest and say I am far from a morning person. I am not the "jump out of bed, feet hit the floor running, birds chirping" kinda girl. I am a " hit the snooze button 5 more times, slowly sit up , and pry my eyes open with a crow bar" kinda girl.  And thankfully my daddy God knows this, after all …

When God Says Go, Will You Go?

Remembering the story of Jonah , God instructs him to go to the city of Nineveh and preach against it because of all the wickedness there. However Jonah fled from the Lord and ran in the opposite direction. After being thrown into the sea and swallowed by a giant fish for three days, Jonah cries out to the Lord and is then spat up from the belly of the fish to go and do as he was instructed.

Jonah 1:1-3
The word of the Lord came to Jonah the son of Amittai saying, : Arise, go to Nineveh the great city and cry against it, for their wickedness has come up before Me." But Jonah rose to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord. So he went down to Joppa, found a ship which was going to Tarnish, paid the fare and went down into it to with them to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord.

I still have a time wrapping my head around the fact Jonah was in the belly of a fish for three days. I can not fathom the intense grossness of it all. Can you? Had he gon…

His Binding Love Letter

Here it is post Valentine's Day and though I am not a huge fan of this particular holiday, I do find a tender sweetness of it's meaning.

Sometimes being single has it's downfalls and holidays are a reminder that I am indeed single. Most of the time I am quite content where I am in my journey of singleness and then there are those times in between when I wonder if I will ever share my life again with a man. I do not ponder on that thought quite often as I know my daddy God has a plan and the right man for me.  This year Valentine's day was odd for me. I was not in a place of sadness nor did I feel sorry for myself. It was not a pity party holiday for me but yet I found myself wanting to hear I am loved. And I believe my daddy God wanted to show me as well. So yesterday as I read many beautiful post from what seemed like tons of flower pictures, and candy filled "I love yous", I secretly asked myself what is my love letter in life…
