What Is "Hydrated With Love™"?

Hydrated With Love™ is a writing ministry to which I was called in December 1996, by the Lord, Jesus Christ, who guides me, through the Holy Spirit, in this calling which the Father has anointed and inspired for His children. The purpose of this ministry is to bring those who believe in the Son of God, into a closer and more intimate relationship with the Christ who died for forgiveness of their sins at Calvary. For He loves each of them with an everlasting unconditional love that will never forsake them through all life trials, temptations, and pain. He is the Light of this world, and all need Him for completeness; without His presence in one's heart, a continual sense of dissatisfaction will prevail, which cannot leave unless He indwells that heart through the Holy Spirit.

Once a person invites Jesus into their heart, sincerely asking Him to rule their lives, while repenting of all past sin, the Spirit can then become their permanent helper and teacher, who will convict them of future ungodly behavior. For all sin and fall short of God's glory; it is the Spirit who pricks their heart, as reminder, until they confess to Him sincerely. Then, peace will instantly come to those who honestly admit their error to God. By His grace (unmerited favor), we are absolved, when we humbly come before Him, in confession.

Hydrated With Love™ is a ministry of vessel shaped verses and mini-teachings which contain a message from the heart of God, each written by one who was taught by the Spirit. All are called by God to use their gifts, trusting He will faithfully equip each with the necessary talent, motivation, strength and direction to complete what He first birthed. No one should ever ignore or suppress their giftings, for in expressing the love of God to others through His unique gift in them, He will bestow rewards for their obedience. Blessings flow to those who step out and help Him draw others closer to His love.

"Hydrated With Love™ began with verses of encouragement to others, given away as led by the Lord, then grew gradually as Carolyn obeyed the Spirit. Collections from notes taken at meetings, conferences, retreats and services, were given to leadership to bless their work and teachings. Markers and verses for gatherings and outreach, especially through Aglow International, have brought healing and comfort to the Body. Commissioned works have been given as gifts, while others were sold for a time through the Olive Branch Christian store in Bel Air, Maryland. Several collections have been written, samplings of which are on this site, for use by teachers, missionaries and other believers, as God uses these writings to point hearts to His Word.

Hydrated With Love™ was the name given to Carolyn for the ministry portion of her calling, for she was healed of a lifetime of gastrointestinal illnesses from chronic dehydration, in November 1996. Once hydrated with the love of Jesus in April 1996, the spiritual foundation of Carolyn's healing had been laid. After many months of obedience involving her family and workplace, a series of healings began as reward for her faithfulness. The joy of the Lord has been upon and within Carolyn, causing her, above all else, to yearn for others to know what she has found. This joy and healing in soul has grown as God has faithfully shown her how to forgive and move beyond cares of this world to endure, in Him, then confidently step forward as He leads. The zeal of the Lord is upon this woman, and as her pastor has told her, it is contagious. God's people are to be ambassadors for Christ, never hiding beneath their heart His light that is in them. In truth, it cannot be hidden from those truly filled by the Spirit of the living God. It will reflect from their eyes and very countenance. For divine Light will reflect from a merry heart.

Carolyn has been called to place her inspired writings, in part, on a website, as a way to introduce her and her works to a greater number, for it is time, God's time, to do so. All works being presented to you are based on scripture, and therefore do not lie, but rather enlighten, strengthen, and aid in spirit and soul restoration and renewal. Scriptural support undergirds the writings, for she has researched diligently to prove and substantiate all that she writes; for to present her Savior falsely would not be in keeping with her heart to uphold, lift, and glorify Him in all she says and does.

I endorse this website. I cover the writings with My banner of love. No evil will befall this child of God nor her household, nor her earthly home and property , for My angels surround her and them throughout the day and in the night. No weapon formed against her will prosper, for My blood, My Name and My Word cover her and those of her blood. All who believe have weapons and armor of protection; know them and apply them to your temple daily. Seek first My kingdom and go to My Word, to know that I have given My angels charge over you who believe. Resist the enemy and submit to Me, then be assured and walk in victory over darkness. I will not forsake. Come to Me when burdened and I will give you rest. Know that I who am in you is greater than he who is in the world. Be led not into temptation. Stand on My promises. Trust in the Lord with all your heart; lean not to your own understanding; in all ways acknowledge Me and I will direct your pathways. Be at peace. Fear not, for I have not given you a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind. Believe My sayings. Trust Me. Walk in faith not fear.

May the works of this site saturate your hearts with agape love and begin the necessary healings for your own life garden. May each who read the words of this ministry become more hungry for the Bread of Life and the Living Waters present in God's Word. May the River of Life come into all of God's beloved, quenching Spirit and soul thirst, causing all to taste then seek after the Lamb of Liberty who set them free from sin captivity for all eternity."

NOTE: The words within quotes which you have just read were breathed out (inspired by) Spirit. As I struggled with right wording for this explanation, He came to my rescue. Not by coincidence, I had just heard a message by Joyce Meyer, an awesome teacher of the Word, who spoke of going boldly to God to seek His counsel; I was desperate, having spent many days trying to define this ministry for you. After repenting, I was sent to a number of scriptures seen below, then wording came together which I pray will clearly explain His definition of Hydrated With Love™. I have come to learn that I can do nothing without God's help, but as His Word tell us, "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."
