A Year of Continuing

The comeback is always stronger than the setback!

The War continues and the breath of God gives new life to His army. He said, "I am giving new life to my ARMY and they will rise up to be fruitful and expand my Kingdom in the earth. I am re-ordering those who have been out of place, I am re-storing those pieces that have been missing. I am re-building the structure of peoples lives to give them time to serve."

I see why God is rolling up His sleeves again. Sounds like some heavy duty work has begun.

We are individual pieces of the puzzle but we need each other because we all fit together to complete the picture that God wants to elevate, display, and use to expand His mission on the earth. It seems we have been stripped bare, made naked if you will, that our eyes would be made open to accurately see where we are, understand what we have and also what is missing....


Let's discuss:

  1. What needs to be stripped/made bare so you can be prepared to be your piece in the puzzle?

  2. How are you expecting your dry bones (bare pieces) to live? What will you say to them?

  3. What specifically are you doing differently this year to ensure the completion of your piece in the Masterpiece (puzzle).

  4. What are you doing to protect the unity in this Body so the Lord can command His blessing?

  5. What was your "Aha Moment" that opened your eyes to see something that was not crystal clear before?

Thank you for your precious time! Did I mention you are a "delight to the eyes." 😘

What a great prophetic word for this year! Thank you for bringing this word for clearer vision as if it wasn't crystal clear last year I got a new perspective. .


I am going straight for my aha moments. . . The one thing that really stood out was it is going to be puzzleing year. . Not only we will endure hardness but also patience.

And also that knowing that somethings might take some work makes me feel like the finished picture will feel so fulfilled. . . I am so grateful that God has not thrown in the towel but that He is saying I'm on the way. Help is coming!

Indeed! A Puzzling Year! I think that is why God said we need to be "instant in season and out of season" ... a three-strand cord is not easily broken! The things that may "puzzle" us will require the instantaneous response we will give it. Thanks for your post!😘

  1. What needs to be stripped/made bare so you can be prepared to be your piece in the puzzle? the thing that needs to be stripped bare is myself (the taking care of things myself). God has given me many gifts and talents to be able to fix and repair things, so I get very used to just taking care of things myself and not checking in with God first. So that is what needs to be stripped bare in my life.

  2. How are you expecting your dry bones (bare pieces) to live? What will you say to them? I'm expecting my dry bones to live like a servant, that is all about helping others the same way that God is…

Your statement “ get into my place so that another doesn't have to be in that place” struck me. When we’re not in our place it leaves gap. Even with the best intentions one piece can’t truly fill the gap completely. Cover the hole,yes; but every piece has a unique purpose. Rev. Bob always use to tell me as a child that “life is like a tundra - you leave an impression everywhere you go.” Within that same vein, what impression aren’t we making because we aren’t in our place?

  1. What needs to be stripped/made bare so you can be prepared to be your piece in the puzzle? When ever something is in the way of what God wants to do it always feels like self is what it boils down to- I look forward to the day where that is no longer the case. Besides that- what needs to be stripped away is preconceived ideas of what can and cannot be done. God is infinitely more creative than I am, so what makes me think that He will do things within a predetermined box created by my own thinking.

  2. How are you expecting your dry bones (bare pieces) to live? What will you say to them? Truly it is only God…

Start singing prophetically "So long self!"


Great to hear your eyes opening to the "abiding IN Him and just WITH Him" We all know "ADDS ON's" cost MORE!!!!! (whether it is at the Salon or at Pizza Hut) 😏

For what it's worth, I think your "piece" is becoming completely beautiful and exciting! 😘

The piece that needed to be stripped bare for me was the removal of the "task" function of being a witness. If it's a task it's something "I" have to do, and then it is just a manifestation of my flesh which doesn't produce a harvest. Stripping away disappointment, shame, frustration all of these things were causing me to jam myself into places because their was a task to be done instead of a relationship, a sign, and a wonder to be communicated.


Dry bones are told to "hear the word of the Lord"! I think this piece of the messages and my "aha moment" are one in the same. God's rolling up His sleeves, and help is on the…

Great post Melissa! I like how your eyes are opening to the the "bare/stripped" piece and also how "things in the flesh" were causing you to jam yourself in places you didn't fit. All of those things you named (disappointment, shame, frustration, and weariness) are real and can absolutely manifest in ways contrary to what the Lord's blessing can and should be. I know I have been guilty at times! It's definitely what happens when we busy ourselves with "the wants in life" trying to get somewhere other than where God wants us. Thank you for seeing that and also for your commitment to lookout for the precursors of discord. Being instant in season and out will cause a refres…

I feel the thing that needs to be stripped is self-reliance. I have much of the time said, “I can do this. I don’t need help”. Especially when it comes to the things of God. I have spent much time squinting, struggling trying to “make” things happen. I need to go back to basic faith and let God. To have the gospel working in my life.


I am expecting dry bones to live! For that to happen I must speak to that demon of self and tell it to lie down and be quiet. Then speak to those bones and tell them to rely on God and the promises in His word.


Specifically, I am making sure I am trusting…

Wow! Great post Sue!!! I love your explanation of a "false start"!!! I didn't realize that there is no grace for a second time! Ooooh CRITICAL that we DO IT this year!!!! The thought of the Lord telling any one of us that it's over, we are not allowed to run is grievous to me!!!!!!!!! We must all be diligent to do what He has commanded us to do and NO LESS!


Thank you for fighting! That is what soldiers do! I'm positive we can win this year with God rolling up His sleeves again! 😉
