Happy New Year!

Happy new year and welcome to the new Schlyce Jimenez Ministries blogsite. That's right, the time to launch the ministry God has placed in my heart has finally arrived! Needless to say, I couldn't be more excited. When Brian and I felt led to move to Colorado last year, we knew it was purposeful but we weren't exactly sure what the Lord had up his sleeve.

We've always had the desire to live in the mountains, but we didn't really think it was part of the ministry. We just thought maybe we'll have a retreat or vacation home there someday. But then last year in prayer, the Lord spoke to my heart from Haggai 1:8 which says "Go up to the mountain, and bring wood, and build the house; and I will take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified saith the Lord."

So here we are, not even a year later, living right at the base of Pike's Peak and preparing to build a ministry. Actually the town we live in is Cascade, Colorado. It's a small town about 8 miles from Colorado Springs. You take this great little highway up the mountain towards Pike's Peak that runs right beside a beautiful mountain stream to get to our new house. It's breathtaking, really. Everytime I drive home I think of the scripture in Psalm 37:4 which says "Delight yourself in the Lord, and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart." God is so wonderful and has been so good to us!

So needless to say Brian and I are overjoyed at what the Lord has planned for us in 2008. We're seeking the Lord and praying over the vision for the ministry and currently in the process of forming a 501c3 for Schlyce Jimenez Ministries (SJM). We have so much in our hearts. We're currently praying about the structure of the ministry and whether we should start a church or prayer and healing center. Honestly, I've never envisioned myself as a pastor although I've always known I would start churches. Go figure... Also, I've had a prayer and healing center in my heart for a long time so I know that this is a big part of the vision. So if anything, please keep Brian and I in your prayers regarding receiving God's blueprint for the ministry.

If we know one thing for sure, it's that this is God's house not ours. So we want to make sure that we build it to his exact specifications. Which reminds me. The first monthly publication for Schlyce Jimenez Ministries is scheduled to be mailed this week. In it I talk about getting on God's program for 2008. It also includes a propehcy for new year and a prayer confession designed to help us fulfill God's plans this year. So if you'd like to get on our mailing list, please contact Schlyce Jimenez Ministries at PO Box 12, Cascade CO 80809 or at info@sjmi.org.

God bless you and keep walking by faith!
