An absent heart is one that isn’t connected to the Spirit; it is empty of love and has lost touch. Do you understand that your spirit must be nurtured and loved or your inner being becomes orphaned and disinterested in life? This is the core of depression. I do not want you to live by your feelings, but I want your feelings to live–be alive in you.
I AM the Essence of Life
And it is My Spirit that causes your spirit being to come alive. Therefore, do not neglect the most precious gift I have for you each day–that of My Presence. If you take the time to be quiet before Me, focused–your mind not drifting, but giving attention to Me…
I will renew you like a fresh Spring rain
This is necessary and essential for you to be healthy, and to keep and maintain a positive and joyful heart.
It is My Blessing
Be alive in the Spirit and thrive in My Love, and My life-giving source will flow through you to others as well. You will find yourself nurturing and loving others without even realizing it–it will come naturally.
Well, naturally, it comes from Me
For I AM the giver of life
And when you connect to My Spirit, basking in My Presence, depression will flee and…
You will be free!

“I bless the Lord who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me. I keep the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my soul rejoices; my body also dwells secure. For thou dost not give me up to Sheol, or let thy godly one see the Pit. Thou dost show me the path of life; in thy presence there is fulness of joy, in thy right hand are pleasures for evermore.” Psalms 16:7-11
“Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary, his understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength.

Great to see you Bethany! God bless you!! I think the post tonight (May 31st) is the best the Lord has spoken to me. Thank you so much for your faithful support!!
Great post! Thank you for your faithfulness to the LORD!
It is my blessing to serve! I made a mistake when I first made the comment on what I thought was the very best of His posts, meaning the Strand of Pearls and originally indicated this one. I corrected it, but don’t think anyone read it for this one received a huge amount of views and Strand of Pearls, hardly a glance. Ah well. Be blessed my friends, I miss my daily posting, but I must be obedient to His call. He tells me I must be rein trained and so I will be. Love you all!! Lori
