We tend to give away what we believe we have received from God. If we believe we are deeply loved by Him (and we are), we give deep love. If we believe we are fully forgiven (and we are through His Son), we give away forgiveness to others. If we believe we are given His abundant grace (and we are), we extend much grace.😃

 

Many more times than not…we should be praying it…and not saying it. 😃

If it’s not necessary to say…it’s necessary not to say it. BUT if God puts something kind and/or loving in your heart and mind over another person…I would say that’s absolutely part of why we have mouths…speak it out…speak Life to one another today…go ahead try it! 😃😏

So everyday I wake up I know I won’t get it “all right”, but I know the One who will! 😊😃☝
He makes our paths straight… He makes us strong in our weaknesses… He makes us holy and righteous… He sends His angels to our aid… He brings His peace and rest to us… He is our shelter… He accepts us and adores us just as we are! ‪#‎ingoodhands ‪ #‎blessedbeyondmeasure

Thinking and praying about death this morning… actually not in a morbid way… just praying over some people who are dealing with it, in a couple of different, and extremely difficult, situations. Breaks my heart to see the pain of loss, and even possible loss. As I was praying this morning… I sensed the Lord’s Presence…I saw Him placing His hands on some hearts…asking His Father for things in prayer…leaning over…hugging and giving each one what they needed for that moment… Some people seemed to “know” He had done something…and others did not. However, in each case…He was right there…closer than their breath. Our Creator cares about His Creation…His Children. I can’t imagine being in some of the moments these precious ones are dealing with and enduring…But I have seen The One Who knows all…cares beyond anything we can truly comprehend…His Love…His Heart is for us…He is with us in ALL storms…

Prayed for so many this morning…will be continuing though out the day as I usually try to do…for the hurting, for the ones hurting for someone else who is hurting, for parents of sick children and for some who simply want to be parents, for several people who are mourning losses, for those who are overwhelmed, for those who are stressed, for those who have no idea what is going on, and those who do and can’t figure out how to deal with it, for so many young people who have questions about their future, and everyone else who is doing the same no matter what their age.

We live in a fallen world with fallen people, BUT we have a God who sits on THE Throne and is good, loving, caring and PRESENT in our troubles.  I pray today that we look up to the Heavens and say, “Yes” and “Amen” to all He is and all He has for us in this day. Even in the yucky times, and the good…He is right beside us…and right beside those we love and care for.

Father God, please bring Your Peace, Lovingkindness, Insight, Understanding, Rest, Tender NEW Mercies, Grace, Provision, and Protection into the lives of all who read this and everyone they love so dearly today. Lord, bring Your overwhelming Peace and Abundant Joy to us and over us! Be our Light and fill us with Your Truth in all we do today.  🙂

“He Is With You”

There’s a time to live
And a time to die
There’s a time to laugh
And a time to cry
There’s a time for war
And a time for peace
There’s a hand to hold
In the worst of theseHe is with you when your faith is dead
And you can’t even get out of bed
Or your husband doesn’t kiss you anymore
He is with you when your baby’s gone
And your house is still, and your heart’s a stone
Cryin’ God, what’d You do that for
He is with you

There’s a time for yes
And a time for no
There’s a time to be angry
And a time to let it go
There is a time to run
And a time to face it
There is love to see you
Through all of this

He is with you in the conference room
When the world is coming down on you
And your wife and kids don’t know you anymore
He is with you in the ICU
When the doctors don’t know what to do
And it scares you to the core
He is with you

We may weep for a time
But joy will come in the morning
The morning light

He is with you when your kids are grown
When there’s too much space and you feel alone
And you’re worried if you got it right or wrong
Yes He is with you when you’ve given up
On ever finding your true love
Someone who feels like home
He is with you

When nothing else is left
And you take your final breath
He is with you

Troubles, trials and the pits of our lives are often very deep and dark, BUT beyond thoughts or imagination is God’s boundless grace and redemption…we are not our failures and trials…we are loved, cherished, and held by His loving arms, no matter what…and that is the truth! Believe and behold. 🙂

Stop…breath…look around. God has this. He really does. There is nothing that has caught Him off guard…nothing is a surprise to Him. Yep…He’s got this, He is holding you, and all of those you care so deeply for.  🙂  Rest your mind…and carry on in His Peace today.  🙂

I especially like to come to the Lord in my mornings and “give” or “hand” Him my day and all it entails. I LOVE doing this, because I know (and believe) it’s the BEST place for me, my day, my life…everything and everyone in it…to be run through His heart and pumped back out in His Fullness of Love, Abundant Grace, massive Protection and Provision… all beyond what I could ever do, hope, or dream.

Father, I bring you all of me today…I know You Love me, and all those I so deeply care for, more than I can (until eternity life with You) comprehend. My heart has no safer place, than to be in Yours! My life has no better place than to be in Your hands. I release me and my entire day to You, and gratefully receive ALL You have for me today! Thank You Father beyond what I can truly put into words!! Amen! 🙂

Praying the other day… and just began to praise God for SO much! Especially Him teaching me and helping me learn to be content in ALL things…no matter what. No matter what things “look” like or “feel” like.

As I continued praying He showed me a picture from what looked like a mountain top. From the place we stood, and as far as I could see… dark, dismal, barrenness land. I looked over at Him and asked, “What is this place?” It felt cold and so void of life.

As I turned to look back out at it all again… He caught my arm gently and said, “Here, try these on.” …and handed me what looked like a pair of sunglasses… Yep, you guessed it! …Boy did things change as I slipped those suckers on!! Every inch and more was covered in unbelievable and unspeakable beauty!!! The hills rolled with the greenest of trees, and flowers burst out everywhere…the valleys covered in tall fine grass…every color was bright and looked as if it was all covered in diamond and gold dust…it looked like nothing I have ever seen…nature in all of its created splendor and glory!!

I definitely did not want to take those glasses off and hand them back!! However, as I did… the entire area looked SO different to me…Not quite as amazing as it did with my “GOD-glasses” on…but it held to a most beautiful place…it lingered…my heart was full…and I completely forgot what it had looked like before. I got a glimpse of how it always looks to Him… always good, always beautiful…always full of abundant life.

I heard Him whisper in my ear, “Keep your eyes on Me…and I will take you through life…through the tough times…through the parts of life that make no sense…If you keep your eyes on Me… I will show you The Truth and the beauty that supersedes this world. The hardest part will be in your willingness to put and keep on My “glasses”… to believe I have the best in mind for you, and those you love and care for… to desire to stay nose to nose with Me…so you can see through My eyes.”

I am willing Lord… can You super glue those on to me please!! 😉

Many times in my life…which especially showed up in all of its glory when I became a mom, was the lie that I could fix everything for those around me I dearly loved. I remember sitting down and begging God to help me… I was beginning to feel like I was losing my mind…how could I possibly have these sweet blessings and NOT be TOTALLY equipped to help them through EVERY issue, pain, trauma, and problem?!

I remember like it was yesterday… God showed me a picture of my girls…and others around me…they all had “holes” in them! All different sizes and shapes. Of course, my first question was…”What the heck are those?!” And then…”Where did they come from?!”

He said, “Those are places I am meant to fill…I am the ONLY One who can fill them.”

I was amazed! I was worn out, because I had been trying to take His place! I was horrible at it by the way. He even showed me the ones I had been a part of actually putting in them!! I was horrified! And…humbled…I remember just bawling my eyes out… I had no idea.

He assured me of His deep love for me, and said while He worked in these places my “job” was to pray and love…and help if, and only IF, He led and directed me to… Whew!!!

I think I took one of the deepest, most relieving breaths ever as I took down my “Hole-filler” sign and put up my “I love you and I am here for you” sign! Much better!! 🙂 So now when I see a “hole” in myself and/or others … I simply look to Him and say, “There is a ‘hole’…it’s all yours.”

I am not a natural hoarder of things. However, a long time ago, the Lord gently pointed out to me that I was a “hoarder” of my hurts, pains, trauma, etc. I had several “closets” that needed major overhauling. I am thankful He loves me SO much, and knew if we cleaned those out…I would experience true freedom, love and peace beyond all understanding. I still have a “junk” drawer…and He faithfully comes along and lets me know when it’s time to clean that out too.  🙂

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ 

So very thankful that God showed me my past hurts, pains, abuses, losses, mistakes, and even stupidities…are not WHO I am in Him…grateful for His healing and loving hands over my life.  🙂

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ 

Thankful God sees me through His Son glasses!!  🙂

Feeling grateful today for maturity.

Loving how God has brought me, ever so gently, from a place of believing that others were responsible for how I felt…what I thought…and even what I did. I remember God saying, one day, “I gave that power to you…not them. I also gave you the ability, through Me, to change all of this…to believe differently.”

I was like, “I am willing Lord…please come to my rescue! I am worn out trying to be me through other people’s lenses.”

And He did!! Rescued me right out of that pit! The one that says…Our value is determined in what others say about us, how they treat or have treated us in the past, etc. God had given me a lot of power…but I had “given” it to others…and in that choice…I had no peace. So…I began to take it back…to trust in who God says I am…in who He created ME to be. When other people said things, and/or treated me in ways that did not line up with that…I chose to believe God, and let all of that go! It wasn’t mine to take in…to believe. All that stuff was in their buckets to deal with…not mine! God taught me to run things through His “Heart filter” …over myself and others…what a difference it makes to have the right belief system in place!!!

Peace is available in all things and with all people! I did not say it was an easy process, BUT it sure has been a worth while process!!

Seek Him and ALL these things will be added to you! God is SO good!!

There’s something powerful about INVITING God into the very core of your heart and life…Imagine us feeling forced to love Him, and/or be in relationship with Him. He will have NO part in that…He desires deep and intimate relationship, but will in no way dishonor our free will/choice to enter into that relationship…what a wonderful God we have!  ‪#‎wow ‪#‎ourchoice  ‪#‎purelove  ‪#‎giveHimyourall 🙂

Thinking of how, the second I became a Christian, God handed me EVERYTHING as His fully accepted and beloved daughter!! I LOVE how He has gently taken my hand (as His little child), and helped me to understand, little by little, how to take His power and apply dominion over all He has placed in my charge! …His Lovingkindness abounds!!!‪                  #‎livingtheredeemedlife  ‪#‎restorationrocks ‪ #‎satanliesGodwins!! 🙂
