I DARE to BELIEVE

BELIEVE

By: Susan Deborah Schiller

It was 3 am and I awakened with the thought, "Take a quantum leap!"

Startled, I arose from bed and fired up my computer, to discover that Merriam-Webster defines a quantum leap as: "An abrupt change, sudden increase, or dramatic advance."

My throat constricted and something from deep within bubbled to the surface and I suspected God was cooking up something extraordinary!

"What do you want?"  is the question I felt He wanted me to answer. Have you ever asked yourself that question?

To answer this question you must exercise your imagination. To imagine means to expect, to dream, to anticipate, to visualize, to believe.

To do that is to OBSERVE THE POTENTIAL of a thing, and scientifically it is called "popping a qwiff". Popping a qwiff initiates the chain reaction of a quantum leap, according to David Van Koevering in "The Physics of Heaven".

David quotes "1 Corinthians 1:28 ”…God (has) chosen…things which are not (the invisible) to bring to naught things which are (the visible).” and continues by saying, "This Scripture makes sense only when you understand it at the atomic and subatomic level. Everything is made up of atoms, which are frequencies of energy. These frequencies of energy are the voice of Jesus causing all things to be! Atoms are made up of subatomic particles, and subatomic particles are made up of superstrings (which are toroidal vortices of energy). Superstrings are tiny donut shaped packets of energy that spin at a frequency – or sing as in a pitch."

Perhaps a more simple explanation comes from Steven Pressfield's advice to novice writers:

"Begin at the end. Figure out where you want to go and work backwards from there."

So I'm going to pop a qwiff here by writing about 2014 as if it has already happened, following a fellow blogger, Ronne Rock's, lead. I'm going to imagine a whole year's worth of working, writing, playing, and living are winding down, already finished. All I have to do is observe the potential.

We don't have to live by default, you know. Maybe this is what Miriam Hellman means when she coaches us to "rise up!"

"Despite what other people might think is your fate in the future, God is ready to deliver you out of all the expectations of your enemies. Some of your enemies are sure that you are finished. God says you are only beginning. Rise up." ~ Miriam Hellman

It's in the telling of our tales, the truths being told, that we are set free to be all we are created to be and do.

2014 is my year of freedom. It's a time of jubilee. It's a year of grace, wisdom, and rest.

My book has been published and released to the public. It's in the hands of women who will also rise up, gain the courage to stand, and to let go of their shameful history, spiritual poverty, victim mentality, and destitution.

I see a long line of younger women eagerly reaching for the audio versions of my book. Those who listen to the words are transformed, strengthened, and together we become a tribe of warrior princesses.

I will believe even more. I will believe for contagious joy, creativity, and passion for life!

More women will receive the courage and strength to bare their hearts, to expose the spots and stains and wrinkles to the Overcoming Love that washes them "white as snow" and propels them to fly!

2014 is the year I am avenged for all the wrongs. My reward is several hundred souls saved from the fires of oppression and injustice.

Okay, I will believe for even greater things than this.

I will believe that former enemies will become friends. I see unity among Christians who were formerly divided against each other. I see reconciliation through humble repentance. I see contrite spirits and letters of apology.

I see our collective stories building a bridge of understanding and closing the gaps!

I see smiles and laughter.

I see provision, even extravagant provision.

I see peace and prosperity in the return to a simple lifestyle… eating non-processed living foods, sewing our own clothes, growing our own garden, raising chickens, and riding bicycles or horseback.

The next step is to work backwards, now, and to create realistic and measurable goals that will chart a path to this vision. But the main thing, the first thing, is to BELIEVE. To dream, to risk, to dare, to give it my all.

How about you? Do you have a vision for 2014? Do you have a word for next year, for the next five years? What do you DARE to BELIEVE God for? Have you popped a qwiff? 🙂

With all my love,

Sue

THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS:

I keep hearing thunder in the heavenlies, and I hear the Lord declaring that victory is yours–by the power of His Spirit, which He is amplifying in this season. You will have the victory if you believe what God is speaking. The power of the most Holy Spirit, will come upon you to cause you to be more than a conqueror in this season. "Only believe, and do that which I have called you to do, and you will be amazed at the outcome", says the Lord.

 
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:  
Evaluate where you are spiritually by looking to see where you have been and how far you have come.  And, establish awareness of where you are going.  It is necessary to keep pace with My purposes for you at this time.  These are days of defining moments that will carry you to divine destiny, says the Lord.  2 Peter 1:2-4  Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

Susan, this is beautiful!  There are so many women out there who need this kind of inspiration, support, and encouragement to rise up!  (As we know, this rising up cannot be done alone.)  I just know you are going to help empower so many others to find their lost voices and to learn to live fully as God created them to live.  I hope to be joining you in this venture.  

Also, I absolutely love the Miriam Hellman quote.

You have a lovely future, Susan and I believe it has already manifested for you. I, too, plan to have a better year than I've ever had.  A future of physical healing as well as emotional.  I'm glad that I found your website and look forward to coming back.  Thank you!

I love your quote,

"Begin at the end. Figure out where you want to go and work backwards from there."

Susan, I am with you. This is the year of "naked" for me and I am determined to discover how to live that way – unashamed! Just as He intended for us. 

This was especially moving to me: "Like discovering pearls hidden within oyster shells, my greatest joy comes from listening to their life stories and helping them see beyond the "spots, stains, and wrinkles" to the pure, spotless daughters of God they truly are." 

It is my prayer to see myself that way in the coming year. Your words are always a balm to my heart. I cannot wait to see where He takes you.
