Learning His Love Language

A child’s life is built upon the ABC’s . . .

This is the foundation for learning the structure of words, spelling, speaking.

Every born-again child of God must learn their ABC’s . . .

Atonement

Blood

Cross

It is the foundation for your life—Eternal Life.

“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23

All sin must be atoned for by the Blood of a sinless man—My sacrifice for thee.

Your act of faith to receive, My Blood, forever changes you to be–just as if you’d never sinned. . .

Forever to be with Me!

As simple as the ABC’s . . .

Why complicate it?

Just receive.

Come to Me as a child . . .

Accepting

Believing

Confessing

“Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” Mark 10:15

My Love Language — the Word — I AM!

“He is the image of the invisible God, the first-born of all creation; for in him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or authorities–all things were created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. He is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning, the first-born from the dead, that in everything all the fulness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.” Colossians 1:15-20

“He came to his own home, and his own people received him not. But to all who received him, who believed in his name, he gave power to become children of God; who were born, not of blood nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth; we have beheld his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father.” John 1:10-14

“And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12

“For no human being will be justified in his sight by works of the law, since through the law comes knowledge of sin. But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from law, although the law and the prophets bear witness to it, the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction; since all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, they are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as an expiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God’s righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins; it was to prove at the present time that he himself is righteous and that he justifies him who has faith in Jesus.” Romans 3:20-26

“But what does it say? The word is near you, on your lips and in your heart (that is, the word of faith which we preach); because, if you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For man believes with his heart and so is justified, and he confesses with his lips and so is saved. The scripture says, ‘No one who believes in him will be put to shame.’ For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; the same Lord is Lord of all and bestows his riches upon all who call upon him. For, ‘every one who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved.'” Romans 10:8-13

Secrets of the Heart

Put yourself in the place of Peter. Imagine how he felt when he so wanted to give his whole heart, and yet his heart betrayed him with feelings he did not know.

In the best of times and the worst of times, we are made more aware of the truth in our heart . . .

The pressure reveals!

“As in water face reflects face, so a man’s heart reveals the man.” Proverbs 27:19 NKJV

Therefore, tend to your heart, always. Be ready in season and out; for you know not what may come.

Are you ready to give answer for what may be revealed–what is in your heart?

You are the keeper of your soul. *see note below.

Peter was surprised, but I already knew. (Matthew 26:33-35, 69:75)

You see, I don’t reveal to embarrass or shame you, but that you may know–just what it is that needs to go. Don’t wait for Me to show you the truth, as did Peter.

Fill your heart with Truth, to reveal the truth–

What needs to be?

What needs to leave?

Serve Me with your whole heart!

*(Freely attend to your soul as you would a garden, removing the weeds, tending the fruit. Each heart and soul must be tended, as unto Jesus; the “Overseer” of each soul surrendered unto Him.) (I Peter 2:25) *Note added to amplify.

“My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; For they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh. Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life. Put away from you a deceitful mouth, and put perverse lips far from you. Let your eyes look straight ahead, and your eyelids look right before you. Ponder the path of your feet, and let all your ways be established. Do not turn to the right or the left; Remove your foot from evil.” Proverbs 4:20-27 NKJV

“‘Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do the things which I say? Whoever comes to Me, and hears My sayings and does them, I will show you whom he is like: He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when a flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was founded on the rock. But he who heard and did nothing is like a man who built a house on the earth without a foundation, against which the stream, beat vehemently; and immediately it fell. And the ruin of that house was great.'” Luke 6:46-49 NKJV

“And he said to him, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself.'” Matthew 22:37-39

“Catch us the foxes, The little foxes that spoil the vines, For our vines have tender grapes.” Song of Solomon 2:15 NKJV

Turn on the Light Please

There’s darkness all around–deep darkness. Yet, many do not notice, cannot discern, the cause or purpose that this might be.

“But the wicked walk in thick darkness, like those who travel in fog, and yet don’t have a clue why they keep stumbling!” Proverbs 4:19 TPT

What reason?

The gross magnitude of sin threatens to consume. Brave is the one praying in the dark–the cold, the night.

Turn on the light!

What is the purpose?

Time is running short–for all will see the Glory.

The purpose of the enemy is to push back the Light, but he has no righteousness in him. Therefore, he has no power to perform. He creates an illusion; for if he can persuade you to accept a lie, you hand him power. For it is Light–Truth that overcomes darkness, all else is a lie.

Do not hide the Truth–I AM!

Shine!

“Do not detour into darkness or even set foot on that path. Stay away from it; don’t even go there! For troublemakers are restless if they are not involved in evil. They are not satisfied until they have brought someone harm. They feed on darkness and drink until they’re drunk on the wine of wickedness. But the lovers of God walk on the highway of light, and their way shines brighter and brighter until they bring forth the perfect day.” Proverbs 4:14-18 TPT

“For God, who said, “Let brilliant light shine out of darkness,” is the one who has cascaded his light into us–the brilliant dawning light of the glorious knowledge of God as we gaze into the face of Jesus Christ. We are like common clay jars that carry this glorious treasure within, so that the extraordinary overflow of power will be seen as God’s, not ours.” II Corinthians 4:6-7 TPT

“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hid. Nor do men light a lamp and put it under a bushel, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16

“Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and thick darkness the peoples; but the Lord will arise upon you, and his glory will be seen upon you. And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.” Isaiah 60:1-3

“Light rises in the darkness for the upright; the Lord is gracious, merciful, and righteous. It is well with the man who deals generously and lends, who conducts his affairs with justice. For the righteous will never be moved; he will be remembered for ever. He is not afraid of evil tidings; his heart is firm, trusting in the Lord.” Psalms 112:4-7

“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being changed into his likeness from one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.” II Corinthians 3:17-18

Truth Prevails

Look around you–it appears that everything has changed, and the world is not as you once knew . . .

But, did My Word change?

Will it ever?

No–it is written, even as–written in stone!

When Moses broke the tablets of stone, it did not stop the Word.

When a virus has claimed many lives, My Word is still True . . .

For those who believe, My Word is–as new!

Righteousness shall prevail, and Judgement too. Think about which of those pertains to you!

Will you be found rejoicing, or shaken?

Listen to the Truth–forsake the lies, for they’ll bow–

will you?

“Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that in due time he may exalt you. Cast all your anxieties on him, for he cares about you. Be sober, be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking some one to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experience of suffering is required of your brotherhood throughout the world. And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, establish, and strengthen you. To him be the dominion for ever and ever. Amen.” I Peter 5:6-11

“Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved.” Psalms 55:22


I invite you to scroll to the message, “Books for Inmates,” to learn how you too may participate in sending the Lord’s Compassion to inmates in prisons, jails and rehabs nationwide. Please consider joining this ministry to place “Comfort in the Challenge,” “His Voice in My Heart” and soon to print, “His Voice in My Heart, Vol II” in the hands of those hidden from society, but not hidden from God. These books are filled with messages from the heart of God. Messages of love, hope, healing and freedom; as well as many amazing, true testimonies of the miraculous power and love of God. This author is not taking anything from the first three published books. All money will be invested in books to help those struggling to find new life. We offer hope and the Good News of, truly, a new life in Christ!

Thank you, for prayerfully considering partnering with us to touch the hearts’ of this hurting nation! All donations are tax deductible. Scroll down to “Books for Inmates” for more information. Again, thank you!

“‘Lord, when did we see thee hungry and feed thee, or thirsty and give thee drink? And when did we see thee a stranger and welcome thee, or naked and clothe thee? And when did we see thee sick or in prison and visit thee?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.'” Matthew 25:37-40

In the Quiet Place

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

A Feast for the Least

It is pleasant to hear words that are tender and sweet, but sometimes I must speak words that are strong meat!

The days are speeding up, and winding down.

That may seem a contradiction in terms, but it is a sign that the Time is near. Look up at the hills, for your Help cometh, and one Day I will come in the clouds.

“Redemption draweth nigh,” but I AM the Redeemer–even now!

“‘And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and upon the earth distress of nations in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves, men fainting with fear and with foreboding of what is coming on the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to take place, look up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.'” Luke 21:25-28

I will come for the redeemed . . .

Will I be returning then for you?

“Behold, the Lord has proclaimed to the end of the earth: Say to the daughter of Zion, “Behold, your salvation comes; behold, his reward is with him, and his recompense before him.” And they shall be called The holy people, The redeemed of the Lord; and you shall be called Sought out, a city not forsaken.” Isaiah 62:11-12

Much sport is made over those ‘set apart.’ It is true that they have My Heart, but do you?

Or are you one ‘making fun’ too?

The Truth has been watered down. An attempt to make it ‘palatable’ for those who have no ‘taste.’ Mere fodder it becomes, no better than waste–and still it is despised.

“‘Salt is good; but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltness be restored? It is fit neither for the land nor for the dunghill; men throw it away. He who has ears to hear, let him hear.'” Luke 14:34

Don’t you see?

The Truth is a banquet–a royal feast for a king!

Man sees no ‘difference’ when offered the ‘floor.’ Why not show them the ‘Royal Staircase’ to more! If you are ashamed, and pretend to not be different, then you are living far below, and don’t even know, your place in My Kingdom.

Come and Dine!

Then you will have food to offer–the ‘offering’ of a King!

You must first be filled–the least shall be first–Come and Dine!

Where are your mockers now?

Oh, now, they’ve ‘watched’ you eating.

Oh, now, ‘you see’ they are hungry–NOW offer them to ‘share’ your FULL plate. You’ll never run out–if you continue to Dine!

I prepare a banquet for you, in the presence of your enemy. But a banquet has many guests, and there’s plenty of room. Why don’t you invite your enemy?

–to Come and Dine!

“I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: preach the word, be urgent in season and out of season, convince, rebuke, and exhort, be unfailing in patience and in teaching. For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own likings, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander into myths. As for you, always be steady, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, fulfil your ministry.” II Timothy 4:1-5

“–‘I know your works; you have the name of being alive, and you are dead. Awake, and strengthen what remains and is on the point of death, for I have not found your works perfect in the sight of my God. Remember then what you received and heard; keep that, and repent. If you will not awake, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come upon you.'” Revelation 3:1b-3

“‘Those whom I love, I reprove and chasten; so be zealous and repent. Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me. He who conquers, I will grant him to sit with me on my throne, as I myself conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.'” Revelation 3:19-22

Announcing A New Published Book!

“His Voice In My Heart”

Listen to His Voice, as He speaks messages to you to affirm, heal, deliver and deepen your relationship IN HIM.

Also Available from Nation of Women Publishing–

“Comfort in the Challenge”

A timely book for this troubling season!

Notice the title. This book was written in dedication to care-givers; created and printed in 2019 before anyone had ever heard of Covid 19. I had a different title planned for the book, but the publisher rejected my title and suggested this title, that the Lord had spoken to her. We didn’t know what was coming, but He did! This book wasn’t written to sensationalize a current event. It was spoken by God in provision for a time to come and that time is now!

Book Order Link: https://www.nationofwomenpublishing.com

These books are not my words; other than testimony pages, they are all His messages. Listen as He speaks to your heart and takes you on a journey to bring healing and wholeness to your spirit, soul and body. These messages speak His heart, but they are not to replace the Word; they serve to amplify the Word with practical application and insight.

Read the Word!

Scriptures are included with every message. Take the time to look them up and study the Word. It is the Word that Saves, Delivers and Heals. Jesus IS the Word, and He chooses to have relationship with YOU!

All proceeds for ‘Comfort in the Challenge’ go directly to Canaanland Ministries. A faithful ministry devoted to equip men to overcome addiction and find new life in Christ. Both books are $14.00 USD each, plus tax and shipping and may be ordered from the link above.

A Christmas Miracle

Hello everyone,

I want to tell you about Jesus the Healer. Those who have followed this blog might be thinking right now, what have you got to say? Your husband died, what can you tell me about healing? Yes I was there with you on that one–my faith was greatly shaken when my husband died just a year and a half ago of Glioblastoma–not my faith in God, but to pray for healing. I had believed with all my heart that my husband would live and not die, and when he died it rocked my world.

My husband’s death didn’t change God, it changed me!

I will not go into all that I have been through in the last two years, I have yet to understand it all. It is far too vast and complicated to relate or relive again, but I will tell you that I can fervently say, JESUS is the HEALER!

A white-faced and shaken co-worker related to me one day a couple of weeks ago that she was scheduled to go to University of Michigan Hospital to start the process for a liver transplant. The MRI showed that without a new liver her life would be ending soon. She has a husband and three little kids and should have a long life ahead of her. I told her God can heal her and related healing stories that I had experienced; especially one of a co-worker that had hounded me to pray for her that God would heal her of Rheumatoid Arthritis. Recalling that incident, I admit that I didn’t have the faith to just jump right in and pray for her, as she was not a believer. I know God often heals unbelievers, though it is a gift and not the Covenant right as that of the children of God. Therefore, I was concerned that it might not happen and send her further away from God. Instead I urged her that she pray and behind the scenes I sought God and waited.

One early morning He woke me up with scriptures, one after another that I wrote down, and He spoke to my heart…

“Today is the day to pray for Carol, I’m going to heal her.”

Now I had ‘heard’ from God and had the faith to pray. She held the door for me that morning, the first person I saw. I asked her if she still wanted prayer and said, “God’s going to heal you today!” She lit up with excitement and said, yes! We enlisted another co-worker, a Christian, that she was especially close to, to join us in prayer and set the time to be at our break. In the privacy of the bathroom we tried to lay hands on her, but the Fire of God came down so HOT that we couldn’t touch her and with tears streaming down all three of our faces, she was instantly healed! As Carol sailed out of the bathroom, with a huge smile on her face, she looked back at me and announced, “You didn’t know this but today is my birthday!”

No I didn’t know it was her birthday, but God knew

Carol told me the next day that she had gone home and rode her horse for the first time in two years. Praise Jesus for His healing power! I felt it was lack of faith that I didn’t pray for her right away, but maybe God didn’t give me that faith because He wanted her to have a special birthday surprise. His timing is perfect if we wait on Him, and this extra special day especially spoke to this unbeliever that God knows and cares about her personally–He knows her birthday! Later we went together to pray for another of our co-workers that was sick, and that day I had the privilege to witness Carol ask the Lord to come into her heart Glory to God!

So I told this current co-worker that story and talked to her of faith. She said she is a believer and believed that God will heal her. I didn’t lay hands on her, as often we Christians do. Though I kept searching my heart to see if He wanted me to, I didn’t receive that lead. We were in agreement and we believed. I have been immersing myself in the Word of God and countless teachings, prayer and counseling; working on my heart, my soul and building my spirit man. I wasn’t kidding when I said my world was rocked and I knew that the only way I would survive was to dig deeper into the Word and the Ways of God–dig until I found out what is amiss in me. An unending job–there is always more and to build on what is right–the Truth of the Word!

One day at home, as I was praying for my co-worker, again the Lord spoke to my heart, so clear it was nearly audible. “I have heard your prayer and I am going to heal her.”

As the tears streamed down my face I rejoiced and thanked Him for His unending Faithfulness!

Over the period of about two weeks the Lord asked me to relate to her a couple more stories of personal accounts I had experienced of His Healing Power, to build her faith, keep her strengthened. She is amazing and grabbed ahold with a child-like faith that was matter of fact–a done deal. I am sure this made God smile. It wasn’t begging or pleading or straining, just belief that what He says He will do–HE WILL.

“Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Matthew 18:19-20

UNWAVERING TRUST

One time I did speak to her about fear. I could see something in her eyes. She admitted that she had some. Well, who wouldn’t? But I explained that fear was the opposite of faith and it is double-minded. To be in faith, fear must go!

“Have no anxiety about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7

Again with that wonderful child-like trust she cast fear down, firmed up her faith and believed. At about a week and a half she said she was feeling better. I said “that’s cuz you’re healed.” she nodded in firm agreement. U of M had called but she was sleeping and they left a message. She tried to call them for a week but could only leave messages that they didn’t return. I told her that is because she is healed. She whole-heartedly agreed and at the end of two weeks, or thereabouts, went in for a second MRI.

Two MRI’S side by side and a puzzled doctor, whom has no explanation, but said, “What are you doing here? There’s nothing wrong with you!” Her new MRI showed the same liver, but brand new, completely healed. He came to set the captives free!

Praise Jesus–The Healer!

“O Lord my God I cried to thee for help, and thou hast healed me.” Psalms 30:2

Glory to God!!

It wasn’t my faith that brought forth her healing, it was hers! I poured myself out for my husband to be healed; I believed with all my heart, but the person that has the need must connect their faith with the Healing Power of God. Jesus is always willing to be your Healer. Healing power is always flowing out to you, if you simply believe. But things like doubt and fear and double-mindedness or words that speak unbelief, quench that power. The means to drive that out is to know the Word of God. Get it in your heart until you know that you know that you know!

If you are a born again believer it is your covenant right to walk in health. Your covenant says that you are already the healed and sickness, disease the trespasser. Line up your heart, mind and especially your mouth with the Word of God. You need not beg God to heal but as you ask Him, simultaneously demand, using your God-given authority, that sickness leave; speak of your body healed. Many do not believe until they see the symptoms gone; oh if we would only believe before we see, then it would be! Find out what your covenant with God is and Live in the fullness of all it contains!

Many say that God gives them sickness to teach them something. Blasphemy!

“He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.” I Peter 2:24

Jesus is the Healer.

He is always good! Don’t believe that lie, but be built up in what His Word really says to LIVE HEALED.

“If you will diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord your God, and do that which is right in his eyes, and give heed to his commandments and keep all his statutes, I will put none of the diseases upon you which I put upon the Egyptians; for I am the Lord, your healer.” Exodus 15:26

May we all attain the wonderful child-like faith that my co-worker friend displayed. May we all receive the gift of Healing that she received.

May we BELIEVE!

Thank you Lord Jesus! Thank you for Healing my friend! May this Christmas Miracle remind us all that Jesus and His Love is the reason for the season.

May you experience the unending Love of God and His Miracle Working Power in your life today!

Merry Christmas!

“And he said to them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel to the whole creation. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover.'” Mark 16:15-18

 

My Child

I will instruct you in the way you should walk and yet your feet will stumble from time to time as you begin to learn My ways.

“— for a righteous man falls seven times, and rises again; but the wicked are overthrown by calamity.” Proverbs 24:1

Your patterns will wish to repeat; habits are hard to break. But your comfort lies in the Truth that I AM with you–you are never alone. I see what you can’t see, and I hear what your heart doesn’t say to you, but to Me it speaks loud and clear.

Quiet your heart like a weaned child. Cause it to listen to Me.

O Lord, my heart is not lifted up, my eyes are not raised too high; I do not occupy myself with things too great and too marvelous for me. But I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a child quieted at its mother’s breast; like a child that is quieted is my soul.” Psalms 131:1-2

I AM Wisdom. I AM Power and Strength, but I AM the Lamb of God, gentle and kind–I AM.

So, do not fear that you may stumble–look up. I will not cause you to fall. If you look up to Me you will have it all My child.

Think about that…

MY Child!

“If you faint in the day of adversity your strength is small.” Proverbs 24:10

“When my soul was embittered, when I was pricked in heart, I was stupid and ignorant, I was like a beast toward thee. Nevertheless I am continually with thee; thou dost hold my right hand. Thou dost guide me with thy counsel, and afterward thou wilt receive me to glory.

Whom have I in heaven but thee? And there is nothing upon earth that I desire besides thee. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion for ever.” Psalms 73:21-26

“My son keep sound wisdom and discretion; let them not escape from your sight, and they will be life for your soul and adornment for your neck. Then you will walk on your way securely and your foot will not stumble. If you sit down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet. Do not be afraid of sudden panic, or of the ruin of the wicked, when it comes; for the Lord will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being caught.” Proverbs 3:21-26

“—fear not, for I am with you, be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my victorious right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

 

 

Built to Last

You’ve been beaten down, but you’re not beaten!

Remember that!

Tear down all the things in your life that do not seem right, but don’t give up on the fight.

When it seems as though your life is a confusing mess–a mass of confusion–tear down until you reach Truth–rock solid.

If what is built isn’t right, tear down until it is, and build again.

Just build again.

Build from the Truth that you know; judge your life as you go, but don’t stop building. Re-construction is part of life–all must take time to fix what’s not right.

Begin again…

and again.

It may seem then, that you’re not getting anywhere, but it is one life. With each re-build you have:

  • More wisdom
  • More knowledge and understanding.
  • Your contracting skills are improved–increased.
  • Lesson learned–more is released.

The final building–without blemish.

Matured to stand the storm–less mess.

Don’t shy new construction–tear it down, to build you up!

Built to stand…

Built to last!

For we are fellow workers for God; you are God’s field, God’s building. According to the commission of God given to me, like a skilled master builder I laid a foundation, and another man is building upon it. Let each man take care how he builds upon it. For no other foundation can any one lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

Now if any one builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble–each man’s work will become manifest; for the Day will disclose it, because it will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test what sort of work each one has done.

If the work which any man has built on the foundation survives, he will receive a reward. If any man’s work is burned up, he will suffer loss, though he himself will be saved, but only as through fire.” I Corinthians 3:9-15

“The Lord is not slow about his promise as some count slowness, but is forbearing toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a loud noise, and the elements will be dissolved with fire, and the earth and the works that are upon it will be burned up.

Since all these things are thus to be dissolved, what sort of person ought you to be in lives of holiness and godliness, waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be kindled and dissolved, and the elements will melt with fire! But according to his promise we wait for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.

Therefore, beloved, since you wait for these, be zealous to be found by him without spot or blemish, and at peace.” II Peter 3:9-14

 

 

 

Greater Love

Legends have come and legends have gone, but there is one thing that lasts a lifetime…Love.

You might not think that–given the current divorce rate, but the one factor that drives those to divorce is love–

for self.

Now, what are the two greatest commandments?

Love the Lord, thy God, with all thy heart, with all thy soul, and with all thy strength and with all thy mind.

And

Love thy neighbor as thy self.

If you would love others as much as you love yourself, you would be loving your God with all your heart. For only when a heart is turned toward God, does it love another with the love of God beyond themselves. And that kind of love, Agape Love, lasts a lifetime.

Legendary love?

It’s not a legend–it’s the Truth.

Love.

“And behold, a lawyer stood up to put him to the test, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” He said to him, “What is written in the law? How do you read?” And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.” And he said to him, “You have answered right; do this, and you will live.”” Luke 10:25-28

“But I say to you that hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. To him who strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also; and from him who takes away your cloak do not withhold your coat as well. Give to every one who begs from you; and of him who takes away your goods do not ask them again. And as you wish that men would do to you, do so to them.” Luke 6:27-31

“We love, because he first loved us. If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen. And this commandment we have from him, that he who loves God should love his brother also.” I John 4:19-21

“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you; abide in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.

This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.” John 15:9-12
