Living with what I could change, but don’t!

I have heard, "just live with it" many times in life, and it upset me because they did not have to live with it, I did! And at times, friends and family added a caveat to try and make me feel better, like, "just live with it, for now." They did not understand that it did not make me feel better, it left me feeling hopeless. But even more difficult to handle is when I heard, "just live with it" within myself. And the unspoken caveat in me was, "because you know it will never change, even though it could." Ouch! Then through prayer and self-reflection, I realized there were things I found "the art of living with" in my life. Knowing I could change but didn't was heartbreaking until I grabbed onto the hope of God's Word and the grace…

The Art of Intentional Learning & Pruning

Proverbs 1:5 (KJV) A wise man will hear and will increase learning.Proverbs 1:5 (AMP) The wise will hear and increase their learning.Proverbs 1:5 (ESV) Let the wise hear and increase in learning.Proverbs 1:5 (NIV) Let the wise listen and add to their learning. In this scripture, we hear a clear message that if we are wise in our hearing, we will increase our learning. Being wise in our hearing is being intentional in hearing because that will dictate our learning. What does "The Art of" mean? The art of something is when we move in it, creating beautiful work by using our imagination and proven truths. We need to understand that this same beauty is when we live with a mind and heart of intentionality. Our learning is like our legacy; not optional. We will learn, and we will have…

Absolute & Key: Speaking Boldly: It Is Simplified Warfare!

In these our end times, speaking boldly is key! Understanding Simplified Warfare, according to the scriptures, is key! This teaching from Dr. Aikens is timeless because it is The Word, but it is for today, no matter what your today is because it is full of the revelation from the Holy Spirit through His Servant. As you partake of this wisdom and revelation, Dr. A. walks you through part of the Book of Acts via what we call "Apostle-phrased." "Apostle-phrased" is when she takes The Word and through the Holy Spirit using the different versions, such as KJV and AMP, and combines them into a paraphrased writing, that gives us clarify and applicability for such a time as this. Read, pray and ponder this meaty message from Apostle Dr. Aikens on "speaking boldly", now and always as we are lead by His Spirit. Glory!…

Jane’s Journey “Grappling”

Jane's Journey "Grappling" Jane's Journey is my transition into "hereafter" or my "from now on" of retirement. I am writing here to inspire, stir, awaken, and encourage you to engage with what is in your heart to enjoy and with the simplicity of crafting your hereafter daily, as it becometh you. Retirement is when we realize and engage the times, ideas, and realms of possibility that our heart looked for and your mind imaged but never tasted of, until now. In the first segment of Jane's Journey, It was about reviewing the preparation done to be ready to enter retirement. After three months, I did the second segment on reflecting and facing the changes, challenges, and how all my preplanned did not work as I had planned. And now after six months of retirement, I am grappling! Grappling is to…

Be Not Weary

"Weary", is a word that when we even hear it, we can feel our energy trying to drain out of us, just as the sound of the word. If we look at what weary means we will find various descriptions but these two are the most interesting and apply to us as "Warriors of Well Doing". First, weary is described as feeling or showing tiredness. When we hear, "she is so weary working and carrying for sick children", we relate to the fact that she is not getting enough sleep and even more, she has no time for herself, therefore she is weary and we feel her weariness. Secondly and more to the heart of the matter when we feel weary, it is described as reluctant to see or experience any more of what we have been dealing with or…

The Art of Management and Marriage

I want to share with you two extraordinary roles that over time have become looked on as ordinary. They look ordinary because those that skillfully do them make it look so easy and natural. But the truth is there is nothing easy, natural, or ordinary about them. I am speaking about "The Art of Management and Motherhood". So why do I pair these seemingly different roles together? I do so because I have occupied both of these roles for over 30 years and I know that they are more similar than different. Those of us that are skillful at management and motherhood carries a wide range of influence on this generation and the generations that will follow after we move on to a new season. Art is not perfect and neither are we. But art is skillful and so are…

With God, No Problem is Too Big to Overcome!

This post is the revelatory teaching notes that Dr. Aikens taught from in the Bootcamp entitled "With God No Problem is Too Big to Overcome!". Posted by Rev. Jane Babich after attending the Bootcamp. “With God No Problem is Too Big to Overcome!”                                                                       Dr. Audrey Aikens It is the stormy, contrary and boisterous winds we all experience in life that can convey so many revelatory concepts we can learn from if we are determined to walk with God. Winds can bring in floods to lash against us as weapons formed full of threatening sounds. Their distorted sounds can stifle our attempts to “speak boldly” in faith; when despite our efforts we still hear challenging reports of devastation sighted. From Adam, we learned we can be equipped with all the best God has to offer and still, we’ll find winds full…

Recognize and Respect the Press of Others

As we continue to look at the ability we have in building a well-crafted legacy, we have discussed the four foundational elements that bring movement within your building. They are Passion, Bravery, Forgiveness, and Restful Emptiness. Click the links to read about each of them. In this segment, we look at recognizing and respecting how we "builders" demonstrate a pressing of moving through challenges and obstacles we face. The press of others and yourself is the fuel that keeps us moving, expands your thinking and contributes to our personal growth RESPECT Respect comes from a Latin word that means “to look back at”.  Respect is given “after”, or on the other side of a circumstance or season. Respect is a response to something that causes us to look back at it in wonder and admiration. Respect does not have to be spoken…

Revelatory Understanding of the “Spirits of the Lord”

This post is the revelatory teaching notes that Dr. Aikens taught from in the Bootcamp entitled "Spirits of the Lord" Posted by Rev. Jane Babich after attending the Bootcamp. The "Spirits of the Lord" are key to our understanding of the power God gives to those that know Him as "Ruwach-Yahweh" or "The Spirit of God". The Spirit of the Lord as "Ruwach-Yahweh appears first in Judges 3:10 Judges 3:10 "The Spirit of the Lord was upon him, and he judged Israel. He went out to war, and the Lord gave Cushan-rishathaim king of Mesopotamia into his hand. And his hand prevailed over Cushan-rishathaim". It then is seen thirty more times scripturally; and yet He is the same revealed from at the beginning as the Spirit of God; and who speaks last in Revelation 22:17, as the “Spirit” assigned with the Bride to say.…
