It Doesn’t Matter… but it Does.

Current deep pain mixed with prior pain from the past can just hit you hard when you are a baby Christian.

Learning can be disrupted when there are clear misunderstandings…especially when you know you’ve been called by God to be part of something that is way bigger than yourself, but the other part of the called does not see it.

Spiritual moms and dads…They are part of a higher calling by God. Whether or not they respond to the call by God to help guide and be alongside those who need to learn…can impact the spiritual family foundation.

Worship, Prayer, Praise… that is the only answer. Leaving the call by God unanswered hurts deeply.

Continue to speak truth, allow the Lord to mend those hurt places and allow humility and grace.

Pray for those who also fight in the trenches with you and pray for the battles that occur everywhere.

May those who are also broken find that they can be made whole in Him.

Change

Change is looked at as positive or negative in most cases based on perception, need, desires, growth, a calling, emotions and feelings.

But if we take a step back…

Can we justify calling anything really negative in the grand scheme of things?

The ebb and flow of life…

It seems complicated by many and orderly to some…but very colorful to others.

Yet still there are shades of gray and days where the dark corners seem easier to find comfort and safety.

It is truly mind over matter?

Or just learning to step back and take a deep breath?

Change.

For growth and development?

For allowing the senses to take a break?

For establishing healthy lifestyle practices?

For finding yourself?

For combating emotional fatigue?

For saying enough is enough?

For discovery and inspiration?

For mental clarity?

…so many ways that change can impact life!

Take a deep, long breath… He knows.

Jeremiah 29:11 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

11 For I know the plans I have for you”—this is the Lord’s declaration—“plans for your well-being, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

The Mighty Warrior

You can’t see it, but you can feel it…

If you close your eyes, you can sense it…

His feathers on your face, soft, gentle, with affection…

He loves you more than you know. It is a love that surpasses all understanding.

How can He love so unconditionally? Because He is who He says His is…

He is the Mighty Warrior, the Prince of Peace, the True Vine, the Good Shepherd and the Light of the World.

He first loved us… He knit us together… He chose to die on the cross to give us direct access to the Father.

I want to go deeper and further with Jesus…

The racing heart, the cluttered mind, the deep deep hurt that cannot be undone…

Or so it seems…

You walk outside, the wind whips around you, in the storm, He is there.

He is there…He stiffens His arms to shield you and love you through it all.

He exclaims, Child put on my Father’s armor!

Even if it means that I must work through the pain to find freedom in Him.

I will move forward.

Breathe…

Inhale…Exhale….

Inhale…Exhale…

Inhale…Exhale…

His love is all that matters.

His embrace, His guidance, His Call.

I am His child.

Hold on tight, you must go on.

He is the Mighty Warrior, He’s got you.

Not Going Anywhere

A friend sent me a song today to listen to…  It is called “Not Going Anywhere” by House on a Hill.  Songs really speak to me.  It is one of the ways that Jesus speaks to me.

He truly does speak.

This song in particular revealed to me that He does hear us even though we might feel or think that He doesn’t a lot of the time.

BUT… God does listen.

Here is what I am hearing from Him today.

  • Yes, I know it is hard for you to trust that my love or any love is safe.
  • He will never ever leave me.
  • Even when I unload my junk from life or the sins that I may have been caught up in… He is not going anywhere!  He is staying right there with me, fighting with me and for me.  He is here.  No matter what.  I might say…but.  But, God is not leaving.
  • I am not perfect, BUT He is.  I struggle with perfectionism and even trying to please other people.  When I am me, raw, naked, just me… I am not perfect alone, But I am made perfect in Him alone.
  • I am still learning and growing… He is still there and not going anywhere.
  • When I can’t breathe, He is there and not going anywhere.
  • Even when I feel like I keep messing things up in life, He is there to redirect and teach me more about who He is and that I can trust Him.
  • In those moments of fear, He is there and saying, I’ve Got This, Fear is a Liar.

I may be messy, imperfect, fearful and afraid of loving and trusting…

Only He can make me whole.

He is NOT going anywhere and He Does NOT break promises.
