Editor's Heart for June 2020

Keep your heart with all diligence,
For out of it spring the issues of life.

Proverbs 4:23 (NKJV)

... having put on the breastplate of righteousness...

Ephesians 6:14b (NKJV)
For the past several weeks (or months, etc.), I have been meditating on and studying the principle and standard of holiness... God's holiness, the holiness He requires of us, and everything in between. So, of course, a Scripture that came to mind was Proverbs 4:23, and its instruction for us to guard our hearts. Imagine my surprise when I turned to this familiar passage to find that the word keep is used, NOT the word guard. Hmmm... so out came the dictionary.

The first definition given for the word keep is this: to have or retain possession of. I could stop right there, 'nuff said. But I won't, haha.

In this world, where we are constantly barraged with offers inviting us to GIVE OUR HEARTS, whether it be to an individual, a cause, a pursuit, we have to fight diligently to possess our own hearts, our own loyalties, in order to present our hearts to our Father God as a spotless, blameless, holy offering. My heart is the only thing I have to offer Him, the one thing that is mine to give.

The second definition give for the word keep is this: to continue or cause to continue in a specified condition, position, course, etc.

Another thing the Holy Spirit has been impressing on my heart in my studies during this season is that there is an instance and a maintenance of most spiritual pursuits, i.e.: there is an instance of salvation, and then there is a walking out of my salvation "with fear and trembling"; there is an instance of deliverance, and then there is a moment-by-moment, day-by-day maintenance of that deliverance, etc. So in my presentation of my heart to God, there is both the instance in which I have chosen to make that offering, and then there is the choice-by-choice surrending of my will and crucifixion of my flesh that KEEPS my heart on the altar before Him.

Beloved, we live in crucial times. We cannot afford at this time to give our hearts to ANY person, cause, pursuit that has not come to us from the Father's heart, from the Father's will. No matter how appealing. No matter how justified in the eyes of the world. No matter how necessary from a natural perspective. Keep your heart, beloved; protect your heart, so that you may present it on the altar to Almighty God, not just once but continuously.

Feet on the Street

This whole month and until God says otherwise, Evangelist Nissa Fulton and various others, have been bringing the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ to the streets of Baton Rouge. Primarily at the riverfront area, witnesses have been offering the message of repentance and salvation to all who will receive.

Outreach has been starting at around 8 PM on at least 5 nights a week. Please contact us via methods below if you would like to be involved or would like more information.

Our cities, our nation, even our world are in dire need of God's intervention at this time. Please be in prayer with us for God's hand to move and save mightily.

Servant's Heart Outreach

On Saturday, 06/06/2020, at 3 PM, Breathe L.I.F.E. went out to minister the Word of God and the mercy of salvation to those in need... accompanied by some food and hygiene packs too! This is a monthly event (at least, if not more often). If you would like to donate, we typically make packs containing small containers of shampoo, bars of soap, deodorant, toothbrushes, toothpaste, razors, washcloths, and other personal hygiene items. Cash donations are welcome as well.

To donate...
ALL cash donations go directly into supplying the outreaches or other ministry events. There are no salaries or personal expenses paid to any Breathe L.I.F.E. team members.

Praise report: This month, we can report we had the largest volume of food donations in the history of the Breathe L.I.F.E. outreach program!! Thanks go out to Jambalaya Shoppe, Domino's, Raisin' Canes, and Buffalo Wild Wings, as well as several individual donors, for whole-hearted support!

Repentance Call

We are SUPER excited to announce that God has called us to an even more extensive evangelistic outreach effort! Beginning in July 2020, we will be traveling to nearby cities with the Word of the Lord, as it has ALWAYS been proclaimed: REPENT and believe the gospel (good news) of the Lord Jesus Christ!

Exact dates and locations will be announced closer to each trip. Stay tuned! And reach out to us if you would like to be involved... by going with the team, by making a donation that enables the team, or by being part of an organized intercession to support the team spiritually.

Administrative Information

Breathe L.I.F.E. has prayerfully decided to pursue registration as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. This registration will enable us to do a number of things that will assist us in our evangelistic purpose. We need to raise approximately $1,200.00 to file the necessary forms and copyright/trademark our name and logo. We are asking YOU to PRAY: (1) pray that the financial need will be met and the paperwork process will go smoothly; and (2) ask God how He wants you to be involved in this process. Thank you in advance for your prayers and support!
