You think the quiet times, the silent times, are hard times–difficult to understand.
You question if you have done something wrong or offended Me.
You feel the loss, the separation, as if you’re apart from Me.
Can you understand–solidify in your heart, that we never part?
Your thoughts must match the Word or they are futile thoughts, unproductive–a waste of time; when I would have you draw closer to Me.
When it seems as if I AM absent, I cause you to stir.
“As a hart longs for flowing streams, so longs my soul for thee O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and behold the face of God? My tears have been my food day and night, while men say to me continually, ‘Where is your God?'” Psalms 42:1-3
Come up higher–seek more–drink deeply from a ‘new’ well.
My Grace abounds to you, as you find your ‘new place.’
And yet, you’d thought you had done something wrong; that I had hid My Face from thee. You couldn’t be further from the Truth. The Truth is where I’ll always be. Find the Truth, for I AM, your quiet place in Me . . . Rest in that.
Rest in Me!
“So then, my soul, why would you be depressed? Why would you sink into despair? Just keep hoping and waiting on God, your Savior. For no matter what, I will still sing with praise, for living before his face is my saving grace!” Psalms 42:5 TPT
“So I say to my soul, “Don’t be discouraged. Don’t be disturbed. For I know my God will break through for me.” Then I’ll have plenty of reasons to praise him all over again. Yes, living before his face is my saving grace!” Psalms 42:11 TPT
I invite you to click the tab at the top ‘Books for Prisoners’
On this page, you will find that we are in the process of sending out “Comfort in the Challenge” and “His Voice in My Heart” books to prisons, jails and rehabs all over the country. The current total is (3,310) books! Please consider partnering in this mission of bringing the healing and restoring love of God to those hidden from society, but not hidden from the Lord.
We welcome all contributions, big or small. Every effort counts and you will share and have part in setting the captives free. Some may never see the outside of those walls, but they can be free in their hearts; and serve their time in anticipation of an eternity of freedom that no one can take away.
“‘Now I will arise,’ says the Lord, ‘now I will lift myself up; now I will be exalted.” Isaiah 33:10

♥ Do not hold back from supporting ministries that are preaching the gospel around the world. They serve the Lord and are reaching places you may never see. When you support the preaching of the Gospel, you support the Lord’s work and hasten our coming Lord, King Jesus ♥
Human nature tends to shoot their best supporting foot, just because it steps a little different than the other. May we all take on the ‘nature’ of God and receive His peace and understanding for one another!
Thank you for sharing this and for your generous donations, in partnership, to reach the world!

Thank you for leading me to their site. I have several published books and I sent 56 books after Thanksgiving and have another 182 boxed to send after the New Year. May the Lord bless this prison ministry and you and your loved ones now and in the new year.
That is so wonderful!!
