Calling all Christians…

Let us all over the world, in every body of Christ… locally and long distance… PRAY!  In every church and every people, joined together in unity… ‘One New Man’… with One Psalm and many prayerful petitions… for such a time as this!

Years ago now, I had been asked by a couple of wonderful friends at NorthernChristian.org to present a ‘short-bio’ of who I am.  And even though they did not know me as a close neighbor geographically, they knew how difficult a task, writing a ‘short-bio’ would present me. ;)  [I'm still a long talker!]

“Who am I, O Lord, and what is my house that You have brought me this far?”

I had been honored by my friends, to announce to you WHATs NEW4Events a year after they had helped me in its creation.  However blessed, I still couldn’t wrap my head around how I got to that place.  You see, a couple of years before nnyphishnet’s birth [on June 5, 2010], I was completely afflicted by a condition I called “technologically challenged”.  I also had a lot to say at that time, and the times that followed [having been overwhelmed daily by all He had to say to, or did for- me], but sadly nowhere to share it. When suddenly, the Lord laid on my heart (and plate) to ‘build a website’  ["PHISHnet"]… an on-line Jesus net @work.

“This just had to be a mistake”, I thought. I would be the last person He would use for this or any task. And after numerous conversations with the Lord on His obvious error in choosing me, I conceded and began looking for assistance.

For years, I had searched and bugged people, to no avail.  Until that day… the day I had lost all hope and I cried out…

“O my awesome, wonderful, graceful, and all powerful God (who has been way too good to me)… “Why do You keep me here???”  I fail You at every turn.  People have said this and that about me, but how can any of this be… I am a nobody and ‘I’ve got nothing’ without You, and I can prove it’… I don’t even have a job.

My identity isn’t even worth borrowing, so there is no worry of it being stolen.  I can’t do what You have asked of me.  You must have mistaken me for someone else or sincerely overestimated me.  I can’t possibly be the one You think I am, can I?  So God… what do You say?  “Who am I, exactly?” and “Why am I here, in this place, at this time?”

For so long, I’ve failed at getting the job done.  I feel useless in building Your kingdom here.  I know that You are in and can do all things, but my heart so wants to delight Yours Jesus, that my weakness cripples and breaks mine.  So here it is… if You want a website… ‘please’… You are going to have to build it Yourself, miraculously implant this ability in me, or place someone in my path to teach me.”

I am here today to tell you… HE did all three.  Within days of my prayer, I received a forwarded email announcing a FREE…

“:: UPCOMING WEB WORKSHOP ::  Mark your calendars!  We will be hosting a workshop on Saturday, June 5 from 9:00am to Noon (location TBA).  We will cover website building, effective use of on-line social networking (like Facebook and Twitter), and other on-line concepts for churches and ministries.”

The workshop was at Clarkson University in Potsdam, NY and even you must realize by now… that I was there w_a_y passed Noon… 8-). [THANK YOU♥ PAT & PATTY at NorthernChristian.org!]

I did not walk away from this day with two computer programmers to do my bidding, but rather two awesome friends who joined me in fellowship, networking, and love… as teachers.  The Lord had given them a heart bent on ‘training me up in the way I should go’.  And I THANK GOD for them.  My journey since June 5, 2010 has been miraculously God… HAPPY BIRTHed DAY nnyPHISHnet!  We did it!  Thank You Lord!

I repeat myself when I tell you that “I hate reading & writing, and I can prove it!”  It was not until the Lord wrestled me to the ground ["Get on your face before Me, and tell Me who it is, you love!"], that I could do either… or well.  To this day, I remain “technologically challenged” and without a doubt- nothing without Him. 

I believe that God doesn’t call the “righteous” [where's His testimony there?], but rather, He makes right [and causes all things to work together for good]- the called. 

If you like what you see, hear, or feel, don’t thank me… Thank Jesus!  For all the things I’m not, there’s Jesus!  For all the things I am, there’s Jesus!  For all… Stands Jesus!

“Behold, I [Jesus] stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me.”  [Revelation 3:20]

So here I was, at the sort-of end of my ‘short-bio’, and I hadn’t even scribed a tip from the proverbial iceberg of testimony, blessing, or biography, of ‘who I am’ and how far I’d come… with Him.   I could have qualified myself with a resume of worldly credentials, but I count “all that” as nothing, compared to the honor and glory of serving God.  It is in Him alone, I qualify.

Jesus is my only religion.  My church is the Kingdom of God.  And I stand and proclaim… for Unity in His body, awaiting His revival and second arrival… “The Kingdom of God is near!”  And when we are all on the same page… “WOW GOD!”

I have often said “If you have to ask me if I am a ‘Christian’, then I am not doing my job.”  Shouldn’t the Spirit and the Light go before me, announcing my faith?  So I ask you “How am I doing?”  And when I ask the Lord “Who am I…”- I can’t help but look to you and ask “What do you see?”  Shouldn’t it be you and your letter of recommendation, who writes on my behalf?

Respectfully submitted,
…  jam4JESUS

Delight yourself in the Lord; And He will give you the desires of your heart.” [Psalm 37:4]

“And all things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.”  [Matthew 21:22]

1 Timothy 15:12 I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into service, 13 even though I was formerly a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent aggressor. Yet I was shown mercy because I acted ignorantly in unbelief; 14 and the grace of our Lord was more than abundant, with the faith and love which are found in Christ Jesus. 15 It is a trustworthy statement, deserving full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, among whom I am foremost of all. 16 Yet for this reason I found mercy, so that in me as the foremost, Jesus Christ might demonstrate His perfect patience as an example for those who would believe in Him for eternal life. 17 Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.

If He can do any or all of this for me, He most certainly can do any or all things for YOU- as well!

Jesus drew a line in the sand for…

that’s right… you!

So what’s going on in The Kingdom?

Jesus built it. We need to run it. Jesus asked Peter three times “Do you love Me?”.  My spirit receives this message as… we are to do the will of the Father, serve our Lord Jesus, and be guided by the Holy Spirit 24/7.

It’s not when we feel worthy of the call, or when we feel we have the resources, or when or to whom we feel like tending to,   but…

             24/7     Jesus said “Feed MY sheep”

 (Seriously- How will they know if no one tells them?)

So- this is how I propose to start this…

Every so often I will highlight a worship song or songs that speak to my heart, wake me up in the morning [or middle of the night], I find myself singing, or just because He says so… and post it here.

“Lord I need You!” [whether sung by Chris Tomlin or Matt Maher] is and has been right along, one such song.

Another of my long time favorites by Chris Tomlin is…

“I Will Follow!” 

I believe, one of the ways the Lord works to accomplish this task ["Feed My sheep!"] in me, illuminates from this website.

And…


       + Where “In Christ, daily…” is the Home page,
“Welcome to In Christ, daily…”  is the House for
Dr. Charles Stanley and InTouch Ministry’s
daily devotionals… to follow, keep right.  The last is  first.  [The last entry ended a few years ago :( so not to infringe on any copyright laws.  I just love how the Lord used (uses) Dr. Charles Stanley and I desired to pass it on.] 
 

+ My passion is for The Lord… to hear my heart, see  “jams4JESUS”…

“… for God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.”
[1 Samuel 16:6-7]“

 

 

 

  + Providing “WHATs NEWs” in The KINGDOM…

See “WHATs NEW4Events” page for updates and “WHAT’s NEWs… Archived” for old testimonies.

I have ceased posting on this page for the time being, seeing how I could not do this service justice.  [If no one tells me, how will I know?]

 

 + And the Big Picture…
“KINGdom COME”, “JESUS Boot Camp”, “Jesus 3D.S” & Virtual Bible Stories were all BIG works in progress.  They started as VeBS (Very exciting Bible School) ideas for all ages, but never were received.  The one that has stayed with me all along is “Jesus Boot Camp”.  So I’m sticking close to Jesus for the rest.

…Stay Tuned…

+ I, this webpage, are all still a work in progress…  ‘Being confident of this very thing, that HE who has begun a good work in me will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus’ (Philippians. 1:6)

If you are so moved by the Lord, please bless me with your input…
“We are one in the Spirit, we are one in the Lord”… “And they’ll know we are Christians by our love”.

Colossians 3:12-17 (NASB): 12So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience; 
13
bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you.    14Beyond all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity.  15Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful.  16Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.   17Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.  
 

Luke 10:27  “So he answered and said, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,’ and ‘your neighbor as yourself’.”
      
         

While I’m waiting… I will serve You, I will worship, I will not faint, I’ll be running the race…

(Hebrews 12:1-3) Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged (faint) in your souls.  

While I’m waiting…

“HOSANNA”

I see the King of Glory
Coming on the clouds with fire
The whole earth shakes
The whole earth shakes

 

 I see His Love and Mercy
Washing over all our sin
The people sing
The people sing

 Hosanna   Hosanna
Hosanna in the highest

I see a generation
Rising up to take their place
With selfless faith
With selfless faith  
 
I see a near revival
Stirring as we pray and seek
We’re on our knees
We’re on our knees
  
  
 ” Heal my heart and make it clean
Open up my eyes to the things unseen

Show me how to love like You have loved me

Break my heart from what breaks Yours
Everything I am for Your kingdom´s cause
As I walk from earth into
Eternity “
 
HOSANNA IN THE HIGHEST!!!
(Hosanna – Hillsong United)

    Great Job, Julie! Hope to see you soon. I owe you a lunch!

    • nnyphishnet says:

      Thanks Pat! I couldn’t do it without my LIFEline. I’ve got nothing without HIM and I can prove it.

      I am looking forward to meeting again. I miss you! There is so much Kingdom business at hand. And I am all about my Father’s business. Praise HIM! Thank You Lord!

      & Pat, Are we still on for Sackets? Really… anywhere would be great. Soon?

      When I think of meals I think of Revelation 3:20 “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.” Jesus, I want to dine & dance with YOU… forever! YOU name the place.

    Hi Julie, I enjoy the variety you share with the videos and your messages, I’m always amazed that God has gifted His Children so uniquely.

    I can relate very much to the woman caught in Adultery with being a sinner who was judged by others unlovingly, Jesus does not condemn and yet He has every right to, He never sinned, but He did say to this woman, go and sin no more and He would not of said this if it was impossible and we know that it isn’t, in Christ Jesus no temptation will be greater then we can bear so we can choose not to sin and Jesus empowers us so we don’t, the Devil flees when we come close to God.

    What if we see others sinning in the Body of Christ, God tells us to warn them and we will if we Love them, they are in danger but we do so in Love and for Love and also remembering that we were forgiven of great sin so who are we to point the finger critically at them.

    1 John 3:9 No one who is Born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been Born of God.

    1 John 5:18-20 We know that no one who is Born of God sins; but He who was Born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him. We know that we are of God, and that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one. And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding so that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.

    Christian Love from both of us- Anne

    • jams4JESUS says:

      AMEN! THANK YOU ANNE!
      God sure is G_R_E_A_T! I was just thinking about the Wonderful new friends the Lord has brought into my life to Bless me. You, Anne, are one such blessing. Thank you for praying for me [I know you do].

      I often see a parallel between the woman caught in adultery and the woman at the well. [Maybe because I identify with both.] I, having now left my life of crime to sit at the Lord’s feet, is still reminded of the woman who left her first love, and wondered around until she found Him [Mr. Right is Jesus].

      As for the Well… I just commented the other day that “I am the woman at the well & I can prove it.” I think when people read about her in John 4, they think “how awful, promiscuous, and how much a failure she must have been in life; possibly failing themselves, to consider how she got there or that we all are just one stone’s throw away.

      Was she raised in abuse and neglect and in having been so, found herself to be of no value… except for that? “This must be the way to a man’s heart”… so off she went to seek love in all the wrong places, with men often presenting too many faces. Could she have been a widow or at least felt like one because when he left her it really did feel like death? Or, was it considered among the people that a man [or two] sent her off with a certificate of divorce, with grounds only to seek the arms of another woman [or in this day & age... whatever]? And at the end, could the one she is with now really not be her husband, even though he stood before witnesses and said “I do”? In any case once she [we] encountered Jesus, whether at the Well or caught up in adultery [or whatever]… all things worked together for good. “And Jesus said, “ I do not condemn you, either. Go. From now on sin no more.” John 8:11

      I have often pondered to the point of revelation that God has me living out life scenarios [starting with abuse in childhood] to aid and rescue [or at least identify with] those He places in front of me now. And so I have lived long enough to know that there are always two sides to every story and I am right here waiting for my happily ever after with Jesus… HE PROMISED!

      GOD BLESS YOU ANNE! And “THANKS” again for all you do!
      julie

      As I was reading your comment, I was reminded of the message in Ephesians 5 (NASB)…
      Be Imitators of God
      Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children; 2 and walk in love, just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma.
      3 But immorality or any impurity or greed must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints; 4 and there must be no filthiness and silly talk, or coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks. 5 For this you know with certainty, that no immoral or impure person or covetous man, who is an idolater, has an inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.
      6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. 7 Therefore do not be partakers with them; 8 for you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light 9 (for the fruit of the Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth), 10 trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord. 11 Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them; 12 for it is disgraceful even to speak of the things which are done by them in secret. 13 But all things become visible when they are exposed by the light, for everything that becomes visible is light. 14 For this reason it says,
      “ Awake, sleeper,
      And arise from the dead,
      And Christ will shine on you.”
      15 Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, 16 making the most of your time, because the days are evil. 17 So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. 18 And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit, 19 speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord; 20 always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God, even the Father; 21 and be subject to one another in the fear of Christ.

  5. Freedomborn says:

    It seems that we have walked the same road dear one, I will leave you a link, it has others links that also speak of my early years , to sum up though, like yours my life has been a hard one but it was never God’s will that I suffer like I did because of others sin, nor was it His will that I suffered because of my own sin.

    Blog Post – http://freedomborn.wordpress.com/2011/09/27/the-early-years-a-little-lost-girl/

    We are both forgiven Julie in Christ Jesus of the great sin that we did, sin that hurt God, others and ourselves and because of our heart repentance they are remembered no more, we now shine our light as it reflects Jesus’ Light within us.

    God bless you greatly Julie – Christian Love Anne.

    • jams4JESUS says:

      THANK YOU FRIEND… I NEEDED THIS! It is SO GOOD to have sisters!

      Speaking of the sister connection, I am reminded of a recent conversation with the pastor’s wife at my home church. She was amazed by a women’s conference that she attended in June, where numerous women began to tell of their past horrors of abuse, several for the first time. And it all started with one disclosure. I believe it only takes ONE to open the flood gates and from here… His Healing begins.

      Anne… I pray doors open and arms swing wide for you, for such a time as this. I believe some of the Lord’s greatest work in and for you, is yet to come! :)

      May the LORD BLESS you INDEED!

      Anne you truly know how to brighten one’s day. Thank you! And you do it so beautifully with flowers… [His flowers sure do make 'perfect sense'.]
      “But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and manifests through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place.” [2 Corinthians 2:14]

      I love you Sis! And I pray the bouquet He sends to you is filled with your favorite fragrance.

      Philippians 4:17 Not that I seek the gift itself, but I seek for the profit which increases to your account. 18 But I have received everything in full and have an abundance; I am amply supplied, having received … what you have sent, a fragrant aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, well-pleasing to God. 19 And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. 20 Now to our God and Father be the glory forever and ever. Amen.

  7. Donna says:

    Hello, just found your blog. Looking forward to following your posts. You are a kindred sister in Christ…..Donna

    • jams4JESUS says:

      Hi Donna! I so enjoyed your blog. You have such a freshness & beauty in your writing style that it clearly illustrates that… you’ve got heart! I think it is a fair assumption that where like-minds think alike… like-hearts feel alike. :) God Bless you!

      • Donna says:

        Thanks so much for your encouragement! I am a work in progress and so is the blog. As I find other bloggers like you, I am able to learn from different parts of the Body of Christ, world wide. Wow! I am loving other views that glorify God! I believe the Lord is going to use blogging even more than any other aspect of internet communication. I have discovered that to be a blogger you have to write what you are passionate about. So, as I write I have to examine myself before the Lord. Oswald Chambers has a quote I really appreciate.” Never testify with your lips what you don’t live out in your life.” I would add to that… never write a post that I don’t sincerely believe, that the Holy Spirit isn’t enpowering, and that I don’t strive to live out.So, it is good accountability for me and a great release of the River of Life He pours over me. I love finding other Rivers of His Life like you….love you already….Donna

        • jams4JESUS says:

          Donna… I love the salt & light you bring to the family table. Thank you! I so appreciate your kind words & encouragement. And I look forward to seeing how the Lord will use your beautiful voice throughout the world-wide-web. May the LORD BLESS YOU INDEED!

    I loved your comment on RJ’s “Real Christiana” blog this morning!

    • jams4JESUS says:

      “Thank you Andy!” I love how the Lord uses RJ Dawson, and many others (like yourself) who focus on Him, to speak to His people. And then, how God causes these good works to stir the people who love Him, that they also- may speak with His purpose. God is so good and awe-inspiring! 8-)

      GOD BLESS YOU!!!

  9. Hi Julie, I found your link on one of my Posts and was wondering how you are going, seems so long since we shared.

    Thinking of you- Christian Love – Anne.

    • jams4JESUS says:

      Hi Anne! It is well with me as I hope the same for you. I find the 23rd Psalm to be a daily affirmation of how wonderful it is to live with Jesus. God Bless you my friend! <3
      Love In Jesus! ~ julie

  10. I have read so many articles or reviews regarding the blogger lovers but this post
