HOPE

HOPE

From the Heart of Our Abba today:

Hope in Me.
Hope in My Love.
Hope in the validity of Scripture.

Hope not in:
Getting it right,
Getting what you want,
Or others doing what you want.

Simply HOPE in the FACTS:
I am God With You.
I am on your side.
I will NEVER abandon you.

You are safe in My Love.
Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him.
Matthew 14:22-33

Behold the Lamb of God

Behold the Lamb of God

Palm Sunday Reflection 2014

Behold the Lamb of God
Who taketh away the sin
of the world.

John “saw” Jesus as he really was.

When Jesus came into Jerusalem on Lamb Selection Day, there was a celebration among the believers.
But what were they celebrating?
Did they “see” clearly or did they “see” through their own desire and perception?
Was it Truth or distortion?
True hope or false hope?

They wanted, needed and hoped for a conquering king to defeat the Romans. That was their perceived need. But what Jesus actually came to do was what John said. He came as the LAMB of God to lay down his life so that we might LIVE and have abundant life IN HIM.
Not at all what they thought they needed. But EXACTLY what they and we all truly needed.

I wonder, where do I, where do we, have expectations that are not met the way we wish they were?
Do we know that we know that we know that GOD is totally with us, completely on our side, doing EXACTLY what we most need in every given circumstance?

Today let’s remember The LAMB of GOD has come! He is EMMANUEL, God WITH us all the time. No matter WHAT we are safe in HIS LOVE.

Beloved….
You are MINE.
You belong to Me.
I am always WTH you.

I see your struggles.
I am with you.

I see your hopes and secret heart desires.
I AM with you.

I see something you cannot see, your future.
I am WITH you .

Do not fear the struggles, the hard moments, or the scary times.
I am with YOU.

Beloved, NOTHING,
No situation,
No person,
No outcome,
Good of bad,
Can separate you from my love.

I AM my LOVE and
I AM WITH YOU.
Right this moment,
Every past moment,
Every future moment,
All the way into eternity.

Peace

Peace

When HOPE is difficult to recognize,
Perhaps impossible in the natural,
We remember He is our HOPE.

When JOY is elusive,
And very fleeting,
We remember JOY is our STRENGTH.

When PEACE wants to,
Sprout wing and fly away,
We remember YESHUA is our SHALOM.

His heart is crying out TO us.
His heart is crying WITH us.
His LOVE calls us,
Bids us COME.
Come and SEE that,
HE is GOOD.

EMMANUEL, GOD WITH US,
No matter what.

When I Am Afraid

From the Heart of Abba:

Fear is not from/of Me.

But that does not mean,
That you stand condemned,
When fear arises.

It is simply and invitation to come,
Lean and rest.
Allow love to penetrate.
Allow peace to calm.

I am with you,
Right now and at all times.

I was feeling fearful, then feeling “bad” for feeling fearful and the Lord reminded me, that some of the great men of the bible were afraid. David for one, who wrote most of Psalms. This Psalm does not say, “IF” I am afraid, it says “WHEN” I am afraid. There is another Psalm that says, “From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.” Psalm 61:2 ….Again it says “when” not “if”. Isn’t it great to have a God who understands?

Like a Child

Like a Child

Childlike FAITH.
Childlike TRUST.
Childlike JOY.
The ability to be present in the moment.
No matter what that moment brings.
Knowing that someone bigger than you,
Stronger than you,
WHO LOVES YOU,
Is WITH you.
And will NEVER abandon you,
Or leave you all alone.
Not afraid to cry, or giggle or even get angry.
Safely held in a love that is always SECURE.
No matter what!
