The Spirit of Man/Woman

Cindy Livingstone Ministries® Revivalist~Resurrecting God's Heart

spiritmanGod created man in His image and breathed life into this man, which He called Adam.  Adam dwelled in a heavenly garden know as Eden; with his help mate Eve.  One day while in the Garden they partook of the tree of knowledge of good and evil and this caused them to become self-conscious. By becoming self-conscious they essentially died to the Spirit and were banished from the garden.  Death of the Spirit does not mean physical death, it is a reference made when an individual is separated from God’s Spirit. God does not commune with His children in a natural, physical way, but by the connection of His Spirit.  God cannot commune with anything unholy and because of sin; Adam and Eve were now unholy.  Since the deception of the serpent caused Adam and Eve to fall into sin, God would now curse the serpent and foretell of His…

Divine Resolve

0-a-protect

I received a gift last week and that gift was the true revelation of forgiveness!! Sometimes we go through life saying that we have forgiven someone or something, but in actuality there is still a part of us that is holding on to the offense, injustice or hurt and pain of the circumstance. True forgiveness is as though the offense or injustice never occurred…it is wiping the slate totally clean to restore the relationship or situation back to its former state. We never lose the value of the lesson, but we no longer hold any emotional attachment to it. True forgiveness removes the root of bitterness, animosity, strive or ill feelings and replaces it with wisdom, love and peace…. It is a divine resolve!!  As I stood there facing this person last week, whom I once held unforgiveness towards; I began to realize that I no longer harboured any discord in my heart for them…I had been healed from the bondage of their actions!! However, I could see within their spirit the discontented frailty of whom they had become because of their lack of peace in life and now all I wanted was for them to be free from their cavern of darkness.  Lost for a moment in the abyss of not knowing what to say…I heard the quite voice of the Holy Spirit say “Tell them you forgive them” Even though I had already forgiven them in my heart, I understood what the Spirit was doing…He was giving forgiveness a voice, so that it could be echoed through eternity to break the spell of darkness over them and replace it with Heaven’s divine love!! Although nothing miraculous happened when I said those words; I do believe there was a shift in the spirit realm over both of our lives!! And I do believe that, that shift will gain momentum and become a greater service for the Glory of God!! ©

Be Blessed and Have a Forgiving Attitude Today ~Sincerely Pastor Cindy 💞

Therefore I say to you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much. But to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little.   -Luke 7:47

2017 – The Year to Prosper

hidden-sun

After a long arduous year of what seemed to be endless days of whirlwinds and pitfalls for many of us in 2016…I am happy to report that the tide is turning for 2017…. The Holy Spirit is saying “It is the year to prosper”  To prosper is to thrive or flourish;  it is to live abundantly!! Being prosperous encompasses many aspects within our lives; it is to be healthy in our body, soul and spirit.  It is to gain knowledge and wisdom while being humble, it is to open our heart to be continually renewed by the flowing rivers from heaven, it is to speak and receive affirming words for our souls, it is to expand our sights to see beyond the horizons in front of us and yes it is to grow in our financial stature as well.

To prosper is to move from your current life circumstance and into the blessings that Heaven is waiting to release to you. To prosper is to take action; to take steps toward your goal, so that God can work through your actions…. Most of what you need in life will be brought to you; for God is the provider, but most of what you want in life you will have to go and get!! You obtain it through your words, your actions and your willingness to walk your path set before you to reach your goal no matter what!!!

“The Year to Prosper” means that God has placed you directly in the position to release abundance into your life, but you must be willing to receive that abundance by following the path of the Spirit, and your Heart…even when it is uncomfortable to do so!! You may be required to let go of some things or some people, you may have to change your routine, places you go, your career, the place that you live or possibly many others things….but I can assure you that whatever it is that God is asking you to let go of…Cannot match the blessing that He has in store for you. It is a leap of faith and it will take courage to take that leap!! But it is not Gods plan to harm you…. He loves you and He wants you to prosper. Your Heavenly Father wants to bless you, but you must open yourself up to those blessings. Do your part!!…So God can do His!!

May 2017 be the best year of your life; May you hold love, joy and peace in your heart each and every day throughout this year, May you receive all the blessings that heaven has for you; And may you always walk in the Spirit and in truth.  

Happy New Year!! ~Sincerely Love Pastor Cindy 💞💞💞

 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

PRAYER ~FREE TO LIVE!!

prayer3

Heavenly Father we thank you for the blessings of this new day…this new season, for the beginnings and the endings in our lives; for we know Lord that all things work for your purpose!! We adore you Father, you are a magnificent creator and our hope is in you Lord.  You, God have cast your light on each step of our journey…You send your angels to watch over us and it is your love Father that always pulls us back from the edge and into your arms of safety… We thank you, Lord. Father, may we always stand in your love and allow it to be our signature in every aspect of our daily lives…For without love it is impossible for those who are lost to recognize you…Love is life and life eternal is the blessing of receiving the gift of your Holy Son, Jesus.

Father we pray for all who are lost and in the grips of the adversary’s darkness. We ask Lord that you overshadow that darkness and infuse your light and love into their veiled hearts; so they may receive the Heavenly Love that is knocking on that blocked doorway!! Lord we stand in faith and declare that any who are battling with any spirits of fear, timidity, bondage, oppression, depression, confusion, or unclean spirits are freed in your name Jesus!! We speak faith, boldness, freedom, power, joy, clarity, and purity over their lives and declare that they are conquerors through you Lord. For those who are battling with any spirits of infirmity; those bodies that are holding any deceases, virus, ailments, allergies, discomfort or having mobility issues in any area, we speak health too them now. We command the infirm spirit to release you in Jesus name and we ask that you receive total healing from the top of your head to the tip of your toes; by the authority of the cross and the power of this anointed prayer…you are free!!!

Lord may we honour the gifts that you have placed in each of us, may we never compare or compete with one another but celebrate the uniqueness of each gift that you have placed in our spirits. . May we recognize and share the strength of our gift and may others lift us up with their giftedness in the areas where we are weak. Lord may we always have open loving hearts in all of our relationships; May we prosper and grow together! May we carry each other through the bad times and may we rejoice with each other in the good times. May we increase in wisdom and knowledge…And in revelation of the truth found in your word!! May we discern all spirits that are around us, whether they be of a human, holy or evil nature!! Draw us close to you Lord and Keep us on your well-lit path until you call us home. We thank you Heavenly Father for your grace and your mercy in each and every day. In Jesus Name We Pray.

May God Bless You & Keep You Embraced in His Loving Presence💜 ~Sincerely Pastor Cindy

Fickle Love

heart-sparkle

One of the greatest gifts God has ever giving me is the ability to love people in spite of themselves!! Some people are so fickle …and their love wavers based on various circumstances within each of their relationships…their love is conditional!! They lose sight of the fact that there are many facets to relationships and that each relationship is significant in one way or another to our lives. My intention in each and every relationship is to never work against it, but to always foster a harmonious balance that allows each individual the freedom to be who God has created them to be…all the while remaining in the established parameters. We all live within and function within our various attributes…and we are all striving to reach various goals both as individuals and as respective units…Relationships are a gift from God, whether there nature is of the business, personal, family, friendship, or the intimate loving kind…each holds value in Gods eyes… And though, I may not express it in words that often, once a person’s life touches my heart; I will always embrace them with love and respect…even when they are undeserving of it. Why?? Because I know how much God loves me…. In spite of myself!! 

Love & Blessings…Enjoy Your Day ~Sincerely Pastor Cindy

 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” -John 13:34-35

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 💞
