Creatures and Community

Toads, fleas, and bunnies…

What do toads, fleas, and bunnies have in common? They hop from one place to the next.

Beware of toads that come and sit, croak, and spread a toxic infection; then hop away.

Beware of fleas that come and go, biting multiple times.

Beware of bunnies; they leave behind good fertilizer but they eat and leave.


Flies, mosquitoes, and spiders…

What do flies, mosquitoes, and spiders have in common? They are busybodies.

Beware of flies; nothing good e...

Singleness of Mind and Heart

Posted by Yona on Monday, September 24, 2012, In : Walking with Him 

How often do we do things “knowing” that it would please HASHEM, but in our hearts we have a double motive, one to please the Father and one that is self serving?

In our minds, we know that certain things please HASHEM. We often think of obedience.  But does that obedience flow from a well in the heart of pure love for HASHEM? Or does our heart seek its own reward? Our mind and heart should be in sync in action to wholly please and honor HASHEM. As we renew our minds to the mind of Yesh...

Let Those Who Have Ears to Hear Boldly Exhort the Truth

Posted by Yona on Sunday, September 2, 2012, In : Preach it: Teach it 

The L-rd woke me up in the middle of Hurricane Isaac, about 3 AM. He told me to write down this message. Those who know me well know that I tend to give a Word in a most gentle way; however, this message came with a firm call to warn. If I may take the liberty in saying so, this message is not coming from the Lamb; this is from the Lion.

The L-rd says Repent and Turn from your wicked ways. Come out from the pagan practices of the world.  It doesn’t get any more direct than that. The L-r...

If I boast about anything, it will be about my Abba, the Creator of the Universe, the Creator of me, the One and Only true G-d.

The L-rd drew me unto Himself as a young girl. My introduction to the L-rd, prayer, and His Scriptures was through the women in my family.

He filled me with His Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) at the age of fifteen and has walked with me, teaching me ever since.

His ministry in me has been to use the many gifts He has freely given in order to testify of Him.

His gifts have been plenty, from equipment to do the task at hand to experiences of trials and joys. All that He gives is a gift, treasures of learning, growing, and drawing close to Him.

For me, the greatest of these gifts is to know Him intimately. Without Him, I am powerless against my enemies and fruitless for His kingdom. I am nothing apart from Him.

Through my acceptance of Messiah Yeshua's atonement, I received cleansing of my sins and a place in His Kingdom.

It is because of the Almighty's Chesed, mercy and loving kindness, to me that I am able to testify of Him, share the good news, and pour out His Chesed into my neighbor.

And so I boast about Him, because it IS all about my Abba and the salvation given through His Son.
