l LOVE DIVINE MOMENTS…

warrior

This morning I was up at 4:00am…Although I do love the early morning rises this was a little early even for me…there was no going back to sleep, so I decided why fight it…just get up and go to the gym now!! A friend had gifted me some gym time and although I do need it…at first I really didn’t want to use it. However, I didn’t want to dishonour my friend by not using the gift he thoughtfully gave to me either…so; I have been doing some boxing!!

While I was at the gym just punching the bag and pondering life; a gentleman who was working out near me, smiled and said “the way you are hitting that bag makes me think you have something heavy on your mind”…to which I just smiled and reluctantly responded. He then proceeded to say “Are you shadow boxing with yourself or is there someone you want to hit…to which I smiled and nodded my head no. Normally, I don’t talk to anyone at the gym other than the usual pleasantries of good morning, but he was persistent …He then went on to say “ You know some of the greatest contenders have had some pretty serious falls before they ever made their comebacks” I thought to myself…What an odd thing to say! He then went on to talk about two of my favorite boxers, James Braddock (Cinderella Man) and Muhammad Ali…To those of you who don’t know their stories… One is a story of a boxer (Cinderella man) who loses everything because of life’s circumstance (broken hand, the 1930s depression) and the other is a story of Ali who makes a choice to stand on his beliefs and not accept the war draft, which sends his career into a downward spiral… To which they both end up making exceptional comebacks!!

I have to say he definitely got my attention; I understand the odds of someone making such a profound statement and then using my two favourite boxers to validate their point, was highly unlikely. I began to recognize that the Holy Spirit was working through this man at this early hour in the gym…So I thought I had better pay attention!!

He then went on to say “I see you’re a fighter” I wasn’t really sure where he was going with this…then he proceeded with “You know a great contender will always surround themselves with the best people who support their dream”… “It takes a lot of people to get a great contender into that ring” I recognized that he was using an metaphor to convey his heavenly message…something that God knows I would understand. He then when on to say “The dream doesn’t die until the dreamer does” He then looked at me very boldly and intently and said “Do you understand what I am telling you?” to which I nodded and smiled to confirm that I had received the revelation of this blessing from heaven… he then returned the smile and said good and then just walked away.

I turned my thoughts back towards the punching bag and began to redirect my mind intentionally toward the message that I had just been so gracefully given…. There have been so many times that I have sowed a word into others’ lives but so few have ever been given to me…and yet here an unsuspecting stranger took a moment out of his life to sow a profound seed from heaven. I was very thankful for the gift of this stranger and for the gift that my friend had so generously sowed for my time here at the gym, which ended up being a divine opportunity for me to receive from my Heavenly Father. God knew that I was no stranger to boxing…I grew up around many boxers and spent a lot of time in the gym…I can see why He chose this avenue to send His messenger.

As I left the gym this morning …the warmth of the rising sun was shifting the cool morning air and I could hear the whispers of the Holy Spirit speaking into my heart saying “The season of chaos is over….Look toward the hope on the horizon” To which I responded, Yes Lord I will….
I actually really like the gym…the only downside is going out in the morning when it is so dark!!…. I guess it’s a good thing that I decided to take boxing instead of TiChi

May God Bless You and Keep You ~Sincerely Pastor Cindy 👼

The Facts and The Wounded Heart!!

dove5

The fact is that we have all been wounded, but the truth is there are lies attached to those wounds. Sometimes we live in these lies, reacting to and responding from them…. When this happens we are operating out of a place of deception and we are no longer exercising our Spiritual Authority; Our Position in Christ or Our Capacity to Live in Love!! I was recently ever so gently reminded of “the facts”…The facts of who I am and the power that resides within me….And how much I am Loved and Adored by my Heavenly Father!! God’s Love is abounding….it reaches beyond this natural realm and it destroys the illusions of the enemy’s deception; if we allow it too… We all have choices to make with regards to the importance of our heritage and our legacy; and the importance of our true ordained path in God. Remember; that no matter how deceptive the darkness may seem…you still possess a heartbeat that contains the light of heaven!!  Always follow your heart in matters of your heart and destiny…. listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit. Our Heavenly Father will never lead us astray…it is us and our attachments to societal standards that cause us to become entangled in the illusion of how things should be.

We must all learn to discern every circumstance and each person who enters into the sphere of our existence….Some situations and people are meant to empower us, while others are meant to destroy us!! Some are Heaven sent, while others are sent from the pit of Hell!! … Knowing the Truth and the Love of Heaven gives us the ability to discern correctly…Why??  Because Love always Sees and Serves a Higher Purpose!!  Even when it seems like you may be entrenched by the walls of the under world’s shadows…there is always a greater light!!! That Light is in You!!! Why?? Because All of Heavens Love is in You!! And where His Love is, No darkness has the ability to overpower it…..Walk in His Love and Live a Victorious Life!!

Thank you Heavenly Father for your Messenger of Love and the Gentle Reminder of the Truth… He has left his footprint in my heart 🐾❤🐾

May God Bless You and Keep You ~Sincerely Pastor Cindy 👼

When Life’s Undercurrents are too Strong….

raging waters

It was with sad hearts that the friends and family of William Johnston (Will) said goodbye to him today; Will was close friends with my niece Selena and her boyfriend Alex. He was a young man who was full of life and always clowning around…He loved life!!! He moved to London Ont. to start college in the fall and was looking forward to his new adventure!! He was a kind and generous young man who was loved by everyone who knew him!
Last Thursday, July 14th is a day that will be etched in the memories of all who knew and loved him. While having a fun day at the beach with his girlfriend in Port Stanley; Will ran into some trouble when he was swimming…and was pulled into an undercurrent. His girlfriend who was with him tried to save him, but soon found herself pulled into the troubled waters as well. The lifeguards were able to pull her out, but in spite of all their valiant efforts; Will was lost to the undercurrent and could not be found. His body did surface three days later and today surrounded by his family and friends he was laid to rest. 😭

It is heartbreaking to see the sorrow on the young faces that lost their joyful friend…Knowing that they will never be able to share the good times and laugh at all the silly little things he did to keep the cheer going is very sad!! He was full of life…. Why Him?? Where was God??… through all of the broken tears and sobs, they asked?? How could something so awful happen to someone so wonderful?? Well, I can’t answer the why?? But I do know that the Lord was right there with him, helping him fight the battle until his very last breath and when he couldn’t fight anymore, the Lord wrapped His loving arms around him and took Sweet William home to Heaven, where he will rest for eternity.

Our lives are all filled with valleys, peaks and yes even some deadly undercurrents. If you have taking any swimming lessons you learn that when you feel yourself being dragged into the torrent undercurrent, to take the deepest breath possible and relax because the stronghold of the current will release you… if you don’t fight the current!!! However, in our panicked state; it is our human nature to fight!! Then the fight causes the stronghold to tighten its grip; until we are unable to loosen ourselves from its darkness, which just pulls us deeper into its murky water! And then we lose sight of all hope, light and give way to the undercurrent for our final breath!! It is difficult to face some of these undercurrents that life sends our way….For Will it was the fight of his life and a battle that he lost.

In the past 18 months I have known five young people who lost their life to the various undercurrents that the shadows of darkness released into their lives…One through a car accident, one in a motorcycle accident, one was shot and killed, one died of a drug overdose and now one who drowned. My heart weeps for the ripple effects that these undercurrents have caused in the lives of all who were touched by each individual life that was lost. It is a reminder to us all, to value each precious moment we are given with each person who crosses our path or is a permanent person in our lives. …for we never know when their final moment will be!!

I don’t know what your battle is today…. What dark undercurrent is trying to destroy you!!! Maybe you are battling illness, depression, divorce or great financial loss, Maybe you have friends or family that are battling some kind of addiction or suffering some kind of hardship or loss. Maybe you feel unloved or unwanted. Or Maybe you’re just trying to catch a break in life so you can find your way out of the darkness and get your life back to being good and prosperous. Whatever your battle is today…. Remember to take the deepest breath possible and rest in the Lord, For while you rest in Him…He will battle the undercurrent for you!! He will destroy the darkness to bring you through the murky waters and deliver you to the other side!! The side where fresh water flows and peace can be found once again!!! He will heal your heart and restore your life…. He is always right here waiting for you!! Reach for Him and He will never leave you or forsake you!!

My prayers and love are with William’s family and friends…and they are especially with my dear niece Selena and Alex. May God embrace you all with His peaceful presence and shower His Heavenly love over you all.

Sincerely Love Pastor Cindy xo

A Word from the Spirit…”The Plot”

Hand of heaven and hell

There is a difference between a person who falls into sin and people who intentionally formulate a plot to sin!! One is a demonic influence that preys on our human vulnerabilities, which we all have in one aspect or another and it can cause any of us to fall …If you say you don’t have any weaknesses; well then lying and denial is your blinding flaw!! The other sin is much more sinister in nature and it is a satanic influence!! It is the incarnation of Satan operating through those who see only through the eyes of Pride and Self-Righteousness! It is the Judas that rises among you to enforce the plan of hell within your midst!! We all know what happens to Judas in the end…It was a short lived glory for him who betrayed the Son of God and the one who was his truest friend!!  To know that Satan has to go to such lengths to bring destruction into a life is actually a ‘Badge of Honour’…He doesn’t plot this extensively for just anyone; unless of course, you are a direct threat to the kingdom of darkness!!  Remember you are the light to rise in the nation; you have been giving all authority to drive the darkness out of the land!! Your heart is not one of a mere Emotional Christian filled with foolish reactions to the Dark Ones schemes and schisms …Your heart is as my Risen Son, filled His Heavenly Love that has been called into righteous action!!

 👼 Go Be the Light 👼

Love you all ~Pastor Cindy 💞

The Cross~Reviving The Truth

Cindy Livingstone Ministries® Revivalist~Resurrecting God's Heart

 
    jesus on cross                                                                        
                                   ~POEM~
 He died on the Cross, so we could live.
Free from our sins in which He will forgive.
He was hung high outside the village square,
Where all mankind just stood and stared.
His hands and His feet were nailed to the wood,
Still He believed that in man’s hearts there was good.
They watched His blood flow from His veins,
They had seen that His life was being drained.
He remained full of love even in the end,
Still giving hope to each and every friend.
He is still with us in our Father’s Heaven above,
For Jesus never doubted the ability of mans Faith and Love.
So let Him in and feel the flow,
For this is peace and the everlasting glow.

 May God Bless You and Keep You Embraced in His Loving Presence ~Jesus Loves You ♥♥♥ ~Sincerely…

Life in the Desert

desert

The desert season in life can be extremely challenging, it is the season that you usually walk alone and wonder if maybe that you may have taken a wrong turn in life…You can spend days, months or even years in this season and the longer your season is the more you question your faith or lack thereof. The people of Israel spent forty years in the desert and some even lost their faith. However, because I have known the desert season I can certainly understand why the people of Israel lost hope in the vision of the promise land…In this parched season it all becomes like a Mirage!! You think that you are there, at the Promise Land…But when you reach out to step into that Promised Oasis; … it all just begins to crumble around you and you are left standing there amid the arid sands of a vast desert that possesses no signs of life. As you stand looking out over miles of dunes….You begin to feel the grit of the blowing sands entering into your heart, which begin to cause hardening in the walls of its chambers; and Now you begin to fear that your heart will become nothing more than a hollow cast of stone.
It is in these seasons that you begin to seek to quench your thirst and search for a drink of life…a refreshing well to water your mind, body and spirit. However, this is also a time of vulnerability and because of your thirst; you may be tempted to drink from a toxic well…..For even Satan himself tempted Jesus in the desert to offer up a solution to get Him some bread for His hunger!!… And we are certainly able to be equally tempted by the adversary!!
In this season, this place of long days of scorching heat and cold nights of bewilderment; instead of looking outward toward the endless sight of the sand storms…Look upward toward the beauty and vastness of this endless universe… and remember the creator of all of this eloquent infinity!! He gave us the sun by day and the stars by night to guide us…He gives us His angels to watch out over us…He is the Lover of our Soul and He will bring restoration and an Oasis that is built upon the rock and not on the sinking sands. He is the promise keeper, for He is not like mankind who fills your heart with a false hope and He will never leave you or forsake you in any season of your life…Turn your heart toward Him and seize the river that flows and causes life to flourish in the desert!!

May God Bless You and Keep You Always 💞

Scripture Meditation
Exodus 3:8 So I have come down to rescue them from the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land into a good and spacious land, a land flowing with milk and honey—the home of the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites.
Numbers 11:1-2 Now the people complained about their hardships in the hearing of the LORD, and when he heard them his anger was aroused. Then fire from the LORD burned among them and consumed some of the outskirts of the camp. 2 When the people cried out to Moses, he prayed to the LORD and the fire died down.
Numbers 32:13 The LORD’s anger burned against Israel and he made them wander in the wilderness forty years, until the whole generation of those who had done evil in his sight was gone.
Matthew 4:2-4 After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. 3 The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.” Jesus answered, It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.
Psalm 91:11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways
Numbers 23:191 God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?

A Letter of Love…

Cindy Livingstone Ministries® Revivalist~Resurrecting God's Heart

night on the river

A Letter of Love….

Love is many different things,
No two people express it the same way.
It sees through the eyes of the heart,
And knows the sound of its own voice.
Love is Inclusion,
It does not divide but unites to conquer,
It is acceptance and respect in spite of differences.
And it possesses a boundless amount of forgiveness.
Love Stays Open,
Even when the gales of a raging storm flows in.
Though it may bow the sails of the ship it does not break them.
It may test the water with its wrath, but it does not drown them.
Love is Ownership,
Not is the sense of possession but rather in the sense of responsibility.
It cares for and tends to the burning embers of the infused hearts,
Constantly fueling and refueling until death do you part.
Love is Mysterious,
Always searching out new depths hidden within…

A Humble Heart

heart of the universe

No one sin is greater than the other in God’s eyes and we have all falling short of the Glory of God. It is better that we do not point out the gaps in people’s lives, rather that we Stand in those Gaps and intercede on their behalf….The older you get the more you realize that you need to extend grace to others because one day you may need that exact same grace bestowed upon you!! It doesn’t matter about what causes the sin, whether it be Sex, Power or Money; for these things and along with others have always been the devils lure since the dawn of time and in one way or another we have all fallen into the snare of the enemies illusion that these are the things that create surety in this worldly realm!! However, these lures may cause us to lose our sense of identity, and lead us into false realities, which can bring about destruction in our lives!! Yes being humble helps to keep us on the right path….however; life’s challenges can be so overwhelming at times that we can become distracted and stumble!! But if we turn away from the sin and ask for forgiveness than our God forgives us and remembers our sin no more…..It is only mankind and his self- righteousness that chooses to continue to pass judgement and impose a life sentence on a sin that we have been redeemed from….Not that sin does not have any life consequences and yes they should be paid according to the laws of the land, however, once a person who has turned from their sin and God pours out His grace on them…. You now will become the person who is in sin if you choose to pass judgement on them!! Some say pointing out a sin is for the purpose of wisdom and not judgement; However, Jesus Himself said “You who are without sin, cast the first stone” He was addressing the religious folks at the time, who were filled with their own self-righteousness rather than Christ’s righteousness. Then, there are some who say…We are to judge them by their fruits…Well there is a great difference between fruits and sin!! And yes producing good fruit (good things, a good spirit) is an important indicator that we are a mature Christian who are able to discern the difference; It does not in any way give us the right to judge sin…Only God Can Do That!!
Being Humble brings you into the awareness of our own imperfections within our soul…It does not keep us safe from the lures of the world or out of the reach of the adversary…it only gives us the advantage over them. We wouldn’t require faith if we didn’t need to overcome the obstacles in life…Even Jesus was tempted by the enemy, as were the apostles. So, often in life people who have one momentary lapse of judgement are abruptly stoned by their accusers and they will immediately turn your whole life into some sinister plot!! However, that is not who God is…He didn’t send is Son into the world to judge it, He sent His Son into the world to Save it!! And once He saves you…You now become a vessel of reconciliation and restoration!! Humility will always work toward restoration because having a humble heart is being in the heart of God.

Love & Blessings
~Sincerely Pastor Cindy

Scripture Meditation
John 8:11 But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives 2 Now early[in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people came to Him; and He sat down and taught them. 3 Then the scribes and Pharisees brought to Him a woman caught in adultery. And when they had set her in the midst, 4 they said to Him, “Teacher, this woman was caught in adultery, in the very act. 5 Now Moses, in the law, commanded us that such should be stoned. But what do You say?” 6 This they said, testing Him, that they might have something of which to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger, as though He did not hear. 7 So when they continued asking Him, He raised Himself up and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.” 8 And again He stooped down and wrote on the ground. 9 Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one, beginning with the oldest even to the last. And Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 10 When Jesus had raised Himself up and saw no one but the woman, He said to her “Woman, where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you?”11 She said, “No one, Lord.” And Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.”
Matthew 7:16-20 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.
Matthew 18:21-22 Then Peter came to Him and said, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?” 22 Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven.
John 3:16-18 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
Romans 5:19-21 19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous. 20 Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more, 21 so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
