What I love about this scripture is that While Nathaniel was most likely meditating and reflecting on himself, Jesus saw him.  How great is it to be going through so much in life and then to have the Son of Man say he saw you even when he was not feeling his best, maybe even thinking on what has become of his life.  Maybe even he hearts desires that seem like they will never come to pass.  When Jesus saw Nathaniel under the fig tree, He's saying he saw his heart, and his chartacter.  The kind of person he really was.  He saw his potential, to be shaped and molded into the image of Jesus Christ.   Even when you are dealing with much or few God sees everything about you.  He want to give you your hearts desire.  He sees your desires, your innermost thoughts. God will manifest his presence in your life if you just give yourself away to him.  Give him everything you own, hold on to nothing.  God Manifested himself that day to Nathaniel by letting him know he saw him.  When he told him this Nathaniel said You are the Son of God.  Meditate on God and let him Manifest his presence to you.  You need his presence in everyday life.  You need him to accomplish those dreams and plans you have, and only he can do it.  Only his Presence in your life can make you successful!  While you are under your fig tree, show God your heart.  You don't have to be tough, or be too strong, just be real with your father.  It is where the Figs were that he found Nathaniel and Nathaniel wasforever changed for the better.  He found purpose and reason for living.  God's Manifested Power showed there.  When I am praying and spending time with God, just thinking about where I want to go and the person I want to be, I always think of this scripture.  Even when I am going through tough times I think of this and I hear Jesus saying "I see you, I know who you are, and I am going to deliver you, save you. and give you the desires of your heart".

John 1:43-47


The following day Jesus wanted to go to Galilee, and He found Philip and said to him, “Follow Me.” 44 Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. 45 Philip found Nathanael and said to him, “We have found Him of whom Moses in the law, and also the prophets, wrote—Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.”
46 And Nathanael said to him, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?”
Philip said to him, “Come and see.”

47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward Him, and said of him, “Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom is no deceit!”

48 Nathanael said to Him, “How do You know me?”
Jesus answered and said to him, “Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you.”

49 Nathanael answered and said to Him, “Rabbi, You are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!”

Where He Goes...You Go




 11x14in Ruth Scripture Quote Illustration by unraveleddesign. This would be great on a wedding entry table or guest book.
Today All I want to give you is to follow God! Never let him out of your sight. No matter what may be going on trust him, decide to make your home with him. He has decided that he will make his home with you if you obey him. Don't push the enemy out. Just as Ruth decided that she was not going to leave Naomi on her own, and that even though everything that caused her to stay near her had gone, she still decided to stay with her and not leave her. We need to take on that same attitute with God. When things are going wrong it is not God that is causing it, so don't leave him, don't give up on him. I am encourged today and want to encourge you to just stick with it. Things will brightem up. Tell God today that where he goes you will go, where he stay you will stay, where he moves you will move. When you do this you can never go wrong. Just as when Ruth stayed with Naomi, stay with God! He is faithful! He loves You and he created you and I do his work. That is why we were created!

God Bless!

Happy New Year (Year of Manifestation)







 Trust in His timing, Rely on His promises, Wait for His answers, Believe in His miracles, Rejoice in His goodness, Relax in His presence. 
I wanted to just say Happy New Year!  I love brand new years because it gives you a chance to start over, for new beginnings, new blessings, growth, and to put into action the things you learned to do and what not to do.  Each year there has been words that here on Beautiful Awakening we have as our theme for the year.  It is not something I just come up with but I pray and ask God what should my focus be for my Ministry online.  What do you want us to focus on to get better at, to be more productive at.  2 years ago it was the year of opportunity, last year 2013 it was the year of Greatness.  Year of Opportunity was just that. I was provided opportunities to make small changes and to develop.  I did not understand why such small changes but I took it and trusted God.  Last Year it was truly a year of  Greatness.  I grew so much in my prayer life, became great at it simple because I had so much outreach for prayer from those who crossed Beautiful Awakenings Path.  As I spoke greatness things did not always seem so great but I knew God had it in me.  I studied the messages that God gave me to give to you all, I needed them too.  Before 2013 was out what I had been desiring that seemed so far in a distance happened and Greatness was given to me.  It was over two years in the making.  God showed me his greatness and my greatness through him. When you learn to be obedient, trust God and live Holy, he gives greatness.  That is what I was teaching all year.  GREATNESS!  This past year you all may have received your greatness in the areas your were seeking God to move in but this year we have to go deeper.  Yes I know you may have thought that you  received the Greatness and that is it, but no that is not it. You have it now you have to operate in it.  This year is the year of Manifestation. This year we are going to see the presence of God like never before.  Some of you are waiting to see God in his Glory, to see him deliver and breakthrough some chains and bondage's.  Don't panic or give up because God is going to do it.  You want just the little taste of what he has already done for you to Manifest, Grow bigger, stronger, deeper, and more in abundance then this is the year for you. Let's look at the meaning of Manifestation

The basic meaning of this word is ‘to make something visible, or clear, to make something known, to reveal something’.  

 For something to be revealed, or made visible, there must be light, the source of which must be God. Therefore God Manifestation can be briefly described as the enlightenment about God, making Him known or revealing Him in some form.

This year for things that have been unclear for you, things that just have not made sense to you, I believe you  will see.  When you are able to see and realize why the pain, why things have gone the way they have you can being to move and operate in your calling.  Each one of us have been called... You were not only called just to take up a seat in Church but you have been called to  lay hands on the sick, drive out demons, break chains and bondage's. You can only be affective in this once you have seen the Manifestation of the Presence of God.  It is powerful and very effective.  When Jesus left the disciples he told them that soon they will know why things happened the way they did, why he was dying and going back to the father but he was not leaving them completely.  They did not understand.  They believe but did not understand.  They only understood and believed what was going on when the Holy Spirit came down and the presence of God was on them and they started to speak in other tongues.  When this happened the Manifestation of God came down and people believed that had not before,  and thousands were added to the believers that already existed so that they could be even more effective as Christian.  We will get more into this during the year but I wanted to encourage you that at beautiful awakening we are here to walk this faith journey with you, We need the Manifestation just as  much as anyone else and while God is teaching me to teach you, I learn in the process and grow also.  So remember this is the year for you to see the presence of God to be all over you, for him to do the impossible, for your to be enlightened on who he really is and what he is capable of .  He is Great and Mighty!  God Bless you all and Happy 2014!!!!

Luke 5:15-17
But he would withdraw to desolate places and pray. On one of those days, as he was teaching, Pharisees and teachers of the law were sitting there, who had come from every village of Galilee and Judea and from Jerusalem. And the power of the Lord was with him to heal.
