Just Breathe

Breathe in:
Father, you love and accept me,

🍃

Breathe out:
All the time, no matter what.

 

Dear friends, I hope this anchors your souls and lifts your spirits.

~Romans 8~

I Need You

Father, it is so easy for me to drift from you – to forget that you are all I need, that You are the One who will satisfy all those empty spaces I clamor to fill. …….Thank you for your faithful and patient presence in my life – always drawing me back with your comforting staff. .

I need you. I really need You.

Lead me to those green truths my soul is lacking, so I can feast and lay hold of You that much more. May You increase, and may what I think “I” need become less important.
To You be the glory.
Amen.

 

When You Feel Alone

Relationship

He made us in His image

So we could understand

A measure of His Pearson

Thus, more closely to Him stand.

🍃

When walls came down to separate,

He came in and tore the veil

And with it also tearing fear –

His furious love won’t fail.

🍃

The Word gave spoken language,

And through it’s threads the written letter

So we could read His heart and mind

And get to know Him better.

🍃

He was not content with just our move

From Hell to Heaven only;

He placed us in Him and He in us,

True intimacy- never lonely.

🍃

What can we say to such great Love!

Could anything be better?

Humankind has many longings,

Which He meets perfectly to each letter.

🕊

When You Think You’re Not Worthy

I think we have all felt that way – like God is distant. But really, it is we who move, shift, and drift – and He understands. He just wants our companionship and loves to hear us. So, may I encourage you with this:

What is the most important part of prayer?

COME

“Therefore let us come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our times of need.”

“That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death” Phil 3:10
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Fellowship of Suffering ~ A Divine Exchange

Open my eyes to clearly see;
the path You took of humility.

Bend my ears to every sound;
Your silence cried out when beaten down.

Enhance my taste to every good
that joy in pain You understood.

Train my scent and oil my prayer –
a sweet smelling savor to break that snare.

Then full my arms to Thee embrace
as I fellowship in sufferings face to face.

~~~~~~~~~~

“Consider Him who endured such contradiction of sinners against Himself, lest you be weary and faint in Your mind.” ~Hebrews 12:3

Prayer Challenge

In my prayers of deepest longing,

I ask You to saturate, invade, take over.

~~

And I yield to You my dearest belongings;

my fears and speeding thoughts by your love, lowered.

~~

Here poised, can I pray without condition –

willing,
surrendered to face

pain for Your end, all-wise?

~~

And, to set my face steadfast –

resting,
knowing Your compassion overwhelms all hurt,

And You, Yourself, shall be the prize?

“My grace is enough; it’s all you need. My strength comes into its own in your weakness. Once I heard that, I was glad to let it happen. I quit focusing on the handicap and began appreciating the gift. It was a case of Christ’s strength moving in on my weakness.” 2Cor.12:9 MSG

“Walking with Jesus is not a task to be performed, but a relationship to nurture.” Suzie Eller

Faith uncorks the bottle of your soul and lets God in.

May you filled with all the fullness of God.
