Thankful Life - May 31, 2014

Good day brothers and sisters... preparing for my day... getting quiet and leaning on my LORD for the day.

Enjoy this beautiful day that our LORD has made and our Lord has made possible for us to walk in hope, joy and love.

(John 3:16-17, 1 Thessalonians 5:18)

"And give thanks for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ." ~Ephesians 5:20 (New Living Translation)

“I thank my God always for you because of God’s love and kindness given to you through the Messiah Yeshua, in that you have been enriched by Him in so many ways, particularly in power of speech and depth of knowledge." ~1 Corinthians 1:4-5 (Complete Jewish Bible)



Living a thankful life has its perks... you begin to see things differently and the light is always on. Just my thoughts.

Help me LORD to know that this mountain before me, or this climb ahead of me will be strengthened and fortified by Your promises and hope. Thank You mighty and faithful God for loving me so much. thank YOU Father for never leaving me, and pursuing me, even in my mess, and among my messiness. I love You Abba Father and cannot imagine this life without You. In the name of Christ Jesus, let me LIVE rightly and wholly as Yours. Amen.

You do it "one thought"... one word, one verse... at a time. You dive in, drive forward and don't let the enemy take any credit for anything that you don't accomplish. You fight your own will by giving all the desperation, depressive thoughts and uncertainty to God... HE WILL FIGHT THE BATTLE because the battle that is not flesh is HIS... all His, and Jesus already won.

What is our job? 

"Putting on the whole armor of God" ~Ephesians 6:11

"Dwell in Him... He is our refuge our fortress" ~Psalm 91:1-16

Remember "...we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds...Hold every thought captive…” remember that He is the victor... ~2 Corinthians 10:3-5

"God is our shield..." ~Psalm 84:11

So what are you focusing on today? 

Is it your 'circumstance'? Or what Jesus did for you?

“Trust in the LORD and do good;
Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness.
Delight yourself in the LORD;
And He will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the LORD,
Trust also in Him, and He will do it.” ~Psalm 37:3-5 (New American Standard Bible)

I love this.... "DELIGHT YOURSELF IN THE LORD.....

...and HE WILL GIVE YOU THE DESIRES OF YOUR HEART."

The more you focus on HIM, the more His desires for your life, will become YOUR DESIRES...

Thankful Life - May 21, 2014

Oh LORD, I seek You... Father, come in - I know it's messy and in disarray at times, but YOU are welcome. Show me how not to hide, how to exude You. Help me know that You are in Your dwelling place, my Tabernacle... Your Temple... Let the doors of this tent fly wide open and let me know YOUR presence in this place. Remove the mess LORD, as I follow and love through obedience. Correct me. Let me see Your blessings. Let me know Your daily and moment to moment mercies. Let me grow in Christ... and be more and more like Jesus through every moment of growth. Let Your light shine, and my light that is YOU be seen to others.

Help me LORD to know that this mountain before me, or this climb ahead of me will be strengthened and fortified by Your promises and hope. Thank You mighty and faithful God for loving me so much. thank YOU Father for never leaving me, and pursuing me, even in my mess, and among my messiness. I love You Abba Father and cannot imagine this life without You. In the name of Christ Jesus, let me LIVE rightly and wholly as Yours. Amen.

I want to encourage you to seek Him diligently. In the midst of sorrow and turmoil, He is waiting. In the circumstance that seems hopeless, He is waiting. In the times when you don't see an out, He is waiting.

He is waiting. He pursues You throughout your life, and delivers salvation unconditionally, and free to you. Will you meet Him as He waits?

Often times, we worry needlessly... we allow the enemy, habit or our past dictate our worry barometer... We truly need to live today - allow our past to help us make better decisions, while today gives us permission to let go of the past. Jesus is our NOW - not the abuse, not the illness, not a failed relationship, not the abuse you have gone through... it is not dismissing those things or you, but negating who they came from. You are not alone. Allow God to heal and take what is not edifying to Christ or encouraging scripturally. He will take it all, and leave you with hope, but you have to let Him have it. Let us not keep picking up the past, the hurt, the heartache, BUT HANG ON TO HIS PROMISES.

When we allow our past to become our present, we dismiss all of what God has for us. Let today be the day you allow the ashes of the past to become beauty of His victory on the cross for you. Healing comes when we let go of our own beliefs about our life... and who we are AND hang on to His promises of hope... keep your focus on the LORD, and He is faithful.

For this I am grateful.

I have been needing time with my God... and being reassured of who I am through Christ, as well as whose I am because I chose to believe... I chose to trust... I chose to live for Christ. And daily, I choose to believe... I choose to trust... I choose to live for Christ.
