What is Happiness?

Happiness is not an expression of your surroundings, but a condition of your heart. If your heart is not sound, neither will you be found to be happy.

A kind and gentle heart can be just as unhappy if trust is broken–pain attacks; the heart of a gentle soul retreats, often feels defeat and may never trust again.

The hardened heart brazenly moves forward, brashly confident; a disguise of fear–years of pain have taught it to remain, aloof. Both seemingly opposite hearts are the same–wounded.

I speak gently concerning this subject, for I know how deeply you have been hurt. When trust is broken, it is not easy to repair. Man cannot heal a broken heart, but I can and I AM here. I am near to the brokenhearted and I see your pain–you need not tell Me–I SEE.

“The Lord is near to the brokenhearted, and saves the crushed in spirit.” Psalms 34:18

I need you to trust Me.

We are going to begin anew, to review what isn’t right. I AM asking you to give up the fight–and REST.

You see it isn’t a fight, if you’ll fall into My arms, for I’ve got your back–I’ll keep you from harm. Together we’ll carve a new path–walking hand in hand and you’ll see that, as I put My trust in you, you’ll begin to trust me too. And soon, very soon, you’ll find that all is well. Your broken heart will begin to mend, as pain and confusion come to an end.

“Thy word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” Psalm 119:105

Soon you will see that, trust placed in Me, is the only way to be free.

So I tell you that ‘happiness’ is a thin veil if under the surface your heart is not well–all will come crashing down. We must get to the core–into your heart I will pour My love and remove the veil. The joy that springs forth of the happiness now is, truly a heart made well.

Fall into My arms.

Let us begin

“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence, and take not they Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of thy salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit.” Psalms 51:10-12

“Blessed is every one who fears the Lord, who walks in his ways! You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands; you shall be happy, and it shall be well with you.” Psalms 128:1-2

“The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade on your right hand. The sun shall not smite you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life. The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth for evermore.” Psalms 121:5-8

“O taste and see that the Lord is good! Happy is the man who takes refuge in him!” Psalms 34:8

 

Heaven If You Will

There has been sunshine in your life, heartache and gladness; you find that even in your day you experience many emotions that vary along the way. And, I too, experience many emotions, yet I remain constant, even; this is what I would like you to take notice of and to follow. To remain even–steady; cautious, yet boldly stepping forth in faith. Joyful, yet watchful–prepared.

Your adversary is always out there looking for an avenue to strike, but you need not fear–you must not fear. Do not give opportunity for the devil to come into your life. Strife and fear are open doors that give license for him to enter and cause turmoil and harm, but you must be the one that opens that door–don’t open it!

Very simple, don’t open the door to the enemy and he cannot come in.

I have given you authority over all the works of your adversary and over every thing that creeps and crawls on this earth–use it! Rise to a new level of awareness in your life. Feel emotions, but don’t allow them to rule.

Are you not in charge of your body, mind, will and emotions?

If you are not, you need to be–you must be, and that is your first step in breaking free of the cyclical bondage that holds you back from experiencing all I’ve planned for you; the freedom I’ve paid for.

Your true fulfillment in life rests upon you knowing who you are in who I AM, and acting upon that knowledge–make it truth in your life.

Make Truth your life.

Live by what you see in Me and walk free…

Be Free

I so long for you to find it–find freedom and to keep that stance–maintain it; in it you will find such rest, joy and peace like Heaven on earth for those who will find it…

Heaven If You ‘Will’

“We know that any one born of God does not sin, but He who was born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him. We know that we are of God, and the whole world is in the power of the evil one. And we know that the Son of God has come that has given us understanding, to know him who is true; and we are in him who is true, in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.” I John 5:18-20

“–according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with might through his Spirit in the inner man, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have power to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fulness of God.” Ephesians 3:16-19

“Put off your old nature which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and put on the new nature, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness. Therefore, putting away falsehood, let every one speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another. Be angry but do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and give no opportunity to the devil.” Ephesians 4:22-27

“Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” Ephesians 5:1-2

“–for once you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord; walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), and try to learn what is pleasing to the Lord. Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.” “Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of the time, because the days are evil.” Ephesians 5:8-11, 15-16

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we are not contending against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against the powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the equipment of the gospel of peace; above all taking the shield of faith, with which you can quench all the flaming darts of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Pray at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication.–” Ephesians 6:10-18a

“Be watchful, stand firm in your faith, be courageous, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love.” I Corinthians 16:13
