With great tenderness and affection my soul cries out to you oh Israel...
From across the sea does my song for you rise... for the God of all creation has shown me a glimmer of His brilliant love for thee...
So deep is His longing for His child !
For to the least of these His precious children He has come with a message of hope to share with His Beloved.
In the eye's of the world and its many affairs I am nothing.
Israel oh Israel!
My child, My precious child.
Come close to Me, for I am drawing near to you.
I will draw you into the shelter of My strong embrace. With My mighty right arm I will strengthen you and protect you. I will gather you to Myself and shield you from the enemies of your soul.
I will comfort You when you mourn, for I have counted your tears...
Bring your little ones into the house of the Lord your God. Teach them My ways , write them upon their hearts .
I will nurture My children and show them great mercy.
Lord, You are my Protection, my Peace, my Holy Defender...
Thank You for being ever watchful over my soul, my heart, my life. You are my rock and my refuge. For I will call upon the name of the Lord and He will be my help in my hour of need. He will hear my cry and answer me speedily. I will look to the heavens, for my help comes from the Lord of my salvation.
You have delivered me from the mouth of the beast that had set his sites to devour me !
Again , I say to you, look to the Lord for your help !
The transformation of a soul
The purpose of hope...
Hope is the starting place of new and wonderful developments, prior to their manifestation upon the earth.
For if I did not hope, I would not have have learned and begun those first shaky steps of faith...
I would not have dreamed the dream that now comes to birth within my heart, within the world around me...
First in the heart, a small ember...
then in the mind, a dawn of creative processes... and the ember ignites into a small flame.
IDENTIFY the ENEMY WITHIN
Oh Lord defend and protect me !
To appropriately defend oneself we must first identify the enemy or enemies from within.
Emotions are critical components to deciphering the true identity of the one we desire to conquer. They often lead the way to the truth though in and of themselves are merely a symptom.
There is one thing I need to stress;
My own journey of discovery, healing and recovery of lost blessings did not even begin until I had come to the throne of God through His only Son Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit to whom I give all praise and glory.
and I the Lord thy God will bless those who bless you, and I will curse those who curse you...
Any questions ? Not for this writer. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob was quite clear on this. There are only two choices there, you bless or you curse. And whatever you choose will be coming right back to your own front door.
With our words , our prayers, our actions, our money, our time, even our thoughts carry a weight of responsibility.
When we choose to positively effect another person or body of people, there is a re-action if you will.
Love is a verb. It's an in action, an ongoing, in motion kind of word...
It is something we "do" in a variety of ways. Love is tenderness in motion. Through our softly spoken words, our prayers, the very intention of our hearts, we tenderly soothe the aches deep within the souls of each other. It is this energy that passes between two people as they touch with mutual adoration.
Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your mind, all your soul and all your might...
When Christ shed His blood on the cross, it was for anyone who believes, to be forgiven all his sins.
Not for a select few, nor for only certain trespasses ... All who believe in the precious name of Jesus Christ are set free and gain entry to life eternal with God in heaven.
That's it, so simple and yet so difficult for us to grasp. It is we who cannot forgive our offenders and ourselves our grievous sins.
what does it mean to love ?
It can mean a variety of differing things to a great many.
For me, to love is an act of faith, something we do, not knowing weather it will be returned unto us, something that is given freely, abundantly, lavishly without reserve or demands of a return on our investment of time, energy of goods and or money.
I describe it in this way because it is how the Lord Jesus and God The Father through the Holy Spirit have loved me.
There is only one kind of fear that actually helps us in life;
that built in run from danger kind of fear.
You know like when there is true danger heading right toward you, ie. an oncoming freight train or something that truly puts us in harms way. Most often our fears are not of this variety, not by a long shot. These are the fears that the deceiver would like very much that we keep intact. Such as, fear of not being good enough or acceptable in certain groups or peoples, feelings of shame, failure, worthlessness, hopelessness, etc.
