Break it down now....

Wouldn't you love it if I put in some MC Hammer in the background for ya???

But that would not be very Godly would it?? I am not feeling me some Jesus when I hear MC Hammer! But, I couldn't resist.

The word that Beth brought us this past weekend was SO HUGE that it needs to be broken down.

We have us an inheritance girls!!

Psalm 16 was our text for the weekend. Honestly, I don't know if I have ever read this Psalm.
I had nothing underlined in it prior to the weekend. That is probably a good indication that the Lord was going to speak a NEW WORD over me. Or at least a fresh word over me.

Vs 5 and 6 tell us ....."LORD, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure. The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance."

Jesus Christ didn't ONLY come to save us. He is here to give us something too.

Excuse me?? You want to give me more Lord???

Romans 8:15-17 tells us that we are his children and therefore we are heirs--heir of God and co-heirs with Christ.

Excuse me?? I am an heir of Christ. Say that out loud a few times. Go ahead and say it.

"I am an heir of Christ."

We need to adopt a mentality every single morning before our feet hit the floor that we are an heir to Christ.

If we truly took this truth to the spiritual bank every day then we would not deal with ourselves cheaply. We have a responsibility to show the world who we belong to. And, when we do that....we are not boring people!! We are on a thrill ride of a lifetime. The world needs to see that.
Our inheritance is in Christ. We are His. Our inheritance is distinct yet different. Our inheritance is in Christ. This is a new concept for me. I am dying to tell you more!!

More on that tomorrow..... Baby steps. Remember, I said we gotta...

"Break it down now..."

One more time...I am an heir of Christ!!! Gosh that sounds delightful.

I like the inheritance part!

I'm slowly (and I mean slowly y'all) working my way through the Book of Psalms. Unfortunately, I get to about Psalm 5 or 6 and can't remember what 1-4 were about. So I start over. I dunno...it's just what I feel I'm supposed to do.

Can't wait for the next break down~

Fran! I stumbled across your blog from your facebook page and I love it! What a wonderful reminder that we have an inheritance in Christ, such a great message. Hope you are doing well and I'll be checking in more often - you should visit my blog too :)

Christie Carioto said...

Oh! I forgot this was under my married name now - this is Christie Terreson :)

Denise said...

Keep breaking it down my sweet friend, love you.

Profbaugh said...

Good stuff, Frannie!! Thanks for posting it. This brought me right back to the Alamodome.


Teresa said...

OH MY! OH MY! Psalm 16 is mine!! Too many details to explain, but just let me tell you that it is becoming crystal clear why I didn't get to go to SA at the last minute...because had I been sitting there when Beth said to turn to Psalm 16...I would have fallen out in the floor..cold!!! The Lord knew I could handle this teaching a little at a time....so Bring It On!

Cheryl said...

From what i've been reading the lesson on inheritance was OUT-standing.
To keep with your MC Hammer theme:
we now need to say to satan-

Can't touch this, na-na-na-na
Can't touch this!!!!

Love ya!

I didn't know you were on fb, I'll try and contact you. I love me some fb!

Emmy said...

You are an Heiress! A beautiful one too with "Holy to the Lord written on your forehead! : )

Love you!

Emmy : )

Beth sure did teach us a Word this weekend, didn't she?! I'm still going over my notes each day trying to absorb it all!


Yolanda said...


To think also that we are co-heirs, meaning Brother/Sister! Awesome!

Heir of God, co-heir of Christ!

I'm coming back!

ocean mommy said...

Cracking up at Cheryl's "can't touch this..." Sounds like a Jennyhope comment!! :)

I am going through my notes AGAIN. And it is a blessing over and over..some of it hard, but a blessing.

I'm so glad that God saw fit to bring you into my life. :)

Love you girl!

I'm so glad you are going to share you little nuggets of gold!! I look forward to hearing each and every one! Loved all the photos you shared.
Hope you are catching up on your sleep!!

Melinda said...

Hey Sweet Fran!

I've been driving all day, taking some stuff down to my daughter that she forgot when she went back to school. This inheritance stuff just keeps going through my head! I've been trying to "break it down, now" all day! :o)

Should have my take on it up and running tomorrow!

Love you to pieces,

Brooke said...

The way you put that "I've got a picture of you, do you want it" with a smiley behind it makes me believe I probably don't want it nor do I want you to post it to the WIDE WORLD WEB!!!!! hahahahaha
Ummm...you can email it to me at mailgirl1978 at gmail dot com. :))

Toknowhim said...

Thanks for stopping by today. I have seen pictures of your sweet face all over blog/Siestaville this weekend. Through the recaps of SA I got to see another side of you that is just adorable. You are too cute!!!

PS... You said (in a post I think) that you felt like this past weekend held a big change for you... Would love for you to post about it :)

Lisa @ The Preacher's Wife said...

Girl, I'm going to copy and paste your recap.

I love you so much!!

jennyhope said...

I am thinking of taping myself to put it on the blog of me reciting psalm 16 for you (j/k). Just so you know. I have loved the psalms and made my abode there for so long.

Darlene R. said...

I'm with Lisa, I think I'm just going to link up to your post! You do it so well!

Love you so much, Fran!

colorfulwoman said...

Ok, this unfortunately has nothing to do with inheritence! But...I used to pride myself in the fact that I could sing the entire Can't Touch This song in like 27 seconds :) I know, it's crazy...but I was like 13 or so:)

I blog so you can get a glimpse into my life as wife, mom of 3 boys, and someone who simply wants to bless others along the way. Have fun and be sweet :)
