Today’s Devotional (6/16/14)
Thank you Lord <3
It wells up in my heart; from my heart
My eyes start to water
Ready to fall across my face
I feel it - in my eyes
I see it beginning to water
It’s my heart and what it is feeling
It is my heart flowing through my eyes
In the form of tears
Water coming out of my heart
Pouring through my eyes
Ugh! Quick!!! Wipe your tears
(I say to myself)
I don’t want anyone to see
I don’t want anyone to know
What my heart speaks through my tears…
Depression is like walking in a dark tunnel. You can’t see what’s in front of you, and the fears begin to kick in. But then you see it, a glimmer of light, piercing through the darkness, calling you to come forth, out of the abyss, out of the dark cavern, out of the black hole. It is calling you forward, to come into the peace that passes all understanding, that comforts you, that is there for you. And so, inch by inch, step by step, you walk toward the Light, hoping that this isn’t some mirage, or some trick, or lie to get you out of the darkness into another pit of darkness. And yet you keep moving toward the Light, where you are tenderly and gently encompassed with the purest form of love… and love that does not measure in its giving, a love that does not judge or is prejudice. A love that accepts you right where you are and this Love holds you, in the safety of His heart.
In order to see the Light at the end of the tunnel, we must be in the darkness. In order to move toward the Light of Hope, we need to know what it is to be hopeless. For we cannot know positive without experiencing negative.
nobody knows how many times i’ve cried in my room when nobody was watching. nobody knows how many times i’ve lost hope, how many times i’ve been let down. nobody knows how many times i’ve felt like i’m about to snap, but i just don’t, for the sake of others. nobody knows the thoughts that go through my head when i’m sad, how horrible they are. nobody really knows
I know what you mean…
FINDING OUR WAY HOME… The Beginning
Truly I am learning about me, about myself..knowing who I am, knowing about me, knowing who Christ is in me and through me. Looking into the deepness of me… it makes me nervous.; but I know my God is with me,
through the process, through the revelations, through this journey.
I’m recognizing things abut me, but I know I’m not alone…
My Lord and my God is with me, every step of the way through my journey of freedom. For whom the Son sets free, is free indeed!
Transparency takes courage; because you have to choose by faith in God to look deep inside your heart and mind, and face those dark memories, those dark emotions and allow the light of Christ, to bring you through it. Though I walk through the valley of death (darkness) I will fear no evil (for God did not give us the spirit of fear) for you Lord God are with me, every step of the way of this transformation and the processing of my freedom through Christ Jesus.
Bad news. A major vulnerability, known as “Heartbleed,” has been disclosed for the technology that powers encryption across the majority of the internet. That includes Tumblr.
We have no evidence of any breach and, like most networks, our team took immediate action to fix the issue.
For He holds us safe and secure in the palms of His hand, and nothing can snatch us out of the hands of our God.
A few years ago, my granddaughters and I went to Subway’s Eat Fresh. There was a man there, digging in the trash can, looking for food. As we were walking in the door, I turned around and asked the man if he would like a sandwich. He said that he would love one. So I went in and got him a foot long tuna with all the veggies. After I gave it to the man, we went on our way to eat our own lunches. My oldest granddaughter said to me: Why did you buy that man a sandwich? You shouldn’t have. I told her that Jesus said we should help where we can, even feeding someone. She was so mad. But as I explained to her, eventually she began to understand. Mind you, she was around 7 years old at the time. LISTEN: All it takes is helping one life, to encourage you to help others. JESUS said that when we help those in need we are doing it unto Him. How else are we going to be an example to our children and grandchildren of what it is to love, to share, to give, to be an example and extension of His love?
Everyone has an opinion:
personal view: the view somebody takes about an issue, especially when it is based solely on personal judgment
estimation: a view regarding the worth of somebody or something
expert view: an expert assessment of something
But not everyone BELIEVES:
accept something as true: to accept that something is true or real
accept somebody as truthful: to accept that somebody is telling the truth
credit somebody with something: to accept that somebody or something has a particular quality or ability
I would rather you BELIEVE IN ME, instead of having an OPINION OF ME! So instead of judging me (based on your opinion), how about you accept me because you believe in me and who I am. To do that, you’ve got to get to know the ‘real’ me. Not the me of the past, but the me of today, of the NOW, of the Present!
This is amazingly good stuff!
We all know that we have an enemy - an unseen and messed up con artist surrounded by twisted cronies who want to take us out and make us ineffective in our spiritual walk. We know that he lies to us about who we are and how the Lord feels about us….
This year is about moving forward, making changes, pressing toward the mark of the high call of God through Christ Jesus on my life, running the race, fighting the good fight, making a difference, inspiring, encouraging, and building up. It’s about mentoring, discipleship, teaching, helping, assisting, doing, not just talking, sharing, not just waiting to receive. To set hearts on fire with the love and passion of God. To ignite, set fire to, fan the flame to visions and dreams that burned out, or are simmering, waiting for that breath of God to stir it all up again to bring it to its fullness and completeness <3 So tell me, what kind of IMPACT do you want to make for Jesus through your life in this world? I want to impact the world for Him, by Him, because of Him. Let’s go pass the fire of God, and set the world ablaze for Him with His love, His passion, all that is Him and is of Him. <3 So who’s up for an adventure for Yeshua, for Jesus? <3
