Never Alone

Never Alone

NOT ALONE

Beloved,

There are lonely people everywhere.

Loneliness is core.

In fact, if other people were the criteria,

Everyone would always be alone.

Feeling alone indicates a void somewhere,

Something needed which is not available.

My children are NEVER alone.

All ARE alone at the deepest level,

UNTIL they become aware,

Of Emmanuel.

I am God With You.

I have been with since before I formed you,

In your mother’s womb.

I have been with you every moment of your life.

And I will be with you forever.

I am Emmanuel, God With You,

You are NEVER alone.

Beloved, bask and rest in this reality.

Savor My Presence in all times,

As well as within all time.

Refuge

Psalm 91-1-2

From The Heart of Abba Today:

Beloved, come away.
Come and simply sit and rest.
Come into the Secret Place,
Allow your heart to simply “be” still.

Come to Me.
I know that life can seem too much.
That is why I invite you to come to Me,
In order to receive whatever your heart needs,
In that very moment.

I AM is your hiding place,
Your shelter and
Your refuge.

Psalm 119:114 You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in your word.

Psalm 91:1-2 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

I choose this picture for the verses because you DO have to LOOK in order to see the words. They are NOT hidden at all, they are in plain sight. But we do need to be intentional to read them. Same with the Secret Place, the Hiding Place, the Shadow of the Almighty, it is not hidden but we DO need to be intentional about seeking it.

Heart at rest

IMG_5597

From The Heart of Abba Today:
Beloved,
Watch for Me.
Watch for evidence of My love.

Allow your heart to be enthralled,
By the many precious moments,
Hidden in the mundane events of the day.

In so doing your heart,
Will automatically rest in Mine.

I hold your heart,
Tenderly within My enduring love for you.

No day and no moment can be devoid of My presence
For I am Emmanuel.

Romans 8:38-39For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

The Secret Place

secret place

The Secret Place

There is place……..

A secret place

That I have given unto you.

It is for rest,


For nourishment,

For refreshing and,


For refilling.

It is the place where,


I am drawing you,

Every day,

As well as throughout the day,

To meet with Me.

It is a hidden place,


Where the snares of the enemy,

Cannot touch you.

It is a place, once entered,

That you will be drawn into,


Again and again.


For it is the place,

From which,

Life lived in Me flows.

There is a place….

A secret place,

Where the Love of God


Is flowing.

He is there,

He has always been there,

Waiting for us to come,

To the Secret Place,

With Him.

Come, My Child, to the secret place.

Sit with Me a while
.

Enjoy all that I am.


Receive all that I have
,

For you.



Then go out refreshed and refilled
,

To do that which,

I have revealed to you.

From within the secret place.

Note: The secret place is a heart place.

It is where your heart is open to Jesus.

It is a tangible place at times.

It is such a delightful place to be,
 to be in awareness of the presence of God.

For he is eternally present to us.

But so often it is so hard to remain still before Him.

As we do—
As we allow Him to ”see” into our hearts, then we will learn to take that sense of His presence out with us wherever we go.

I love the tangible awareness of His Love when it arises up from within our very being and meets with the Golden Love that He is ever and always pouring forth to us.

When we learn, as we allow ourselves to experience His presence–when we learn to abide in Him and to realize how real He is in us–then we are in the secret place.

When we learn–as we learn–how to get there from within any time–no matter what is going on around us–then we know true safety and security.

Being safe and secure means in a way that you know that you are loved.

We are too, totally loved.

Totally held secure in Him.

No matter what.

Things happen.

Things happened when we were smaller.

Things happen still.

For we live in fallen world among other fallen people.

But as we learn to dwell in the secret place–under the shadow of His wing–then no matter what happens on the outside–we are on the inside safe in Him.

For He is our  beloved–He loves us dearly–and He has promised to always be with us.  Forever.

We enter by praise and thanksgiving for who He is.

We enter by allowing Him full rein in our lives–surrender.

We enter as we become more intimate with Him,

As we allow Him in-to-me-see—intimacy.

And as we accept ourselves–all that we are right now–and hence are able to sit with Him–openly being just as we are-
It is there that we are filled, renewed, transformed.



Psalm 31:20
In the secret place of Your presence You hide them from the plots of men; You keep them secretly in Your pavilion from the strife of tongues.



Psalm 27:5
For in the day of trouble He will hide me in His shelter; in the secret place of His tent will He hide me; He will set me high upon a rock.



Psalm 91:1
HE WHO dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand].



Isaiah 45:3
And I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that it is I, the Lord, the God of Israel, Who calls you by your name.


know that it is I, the Lord, the God of Israel, Who calls you by your name.


Emmanuel God Who Is With us but also God who takes care of us

god with us

From The Heart of Abba:
Beloved
You truly do not know what any given day will bring,
You do know Who does know.

I know every single day of your life.
But not as a voyeur,
As a loving father.

I know what brings you pleasure.
I know what draws your heart to Mine.

I engineer the moments of your days,
In order to woo you to look to Me.

In EVERY circumstance of life,
I AM Emmanuel,
God With You.
But I am also God On Your Side,
God beside you.

God who is FOR you,
Rooting for you,
Providing for you,
In every moment of every circumstance of you life.

This is an interesting picture with a story behind it. I was at River Garden waiting for Don in rehab. I enjoy sitting by the water listening to worship music and just simply “being” and enjoying the beauty of the water and the trees etc.
My eyes were drawn to this BLUE reflection in the water. Often it seems like God is loving me, showing me His love and caring by drawing my attention to something that is just a tad out of the norm. Or out of the norm for me.
This blue was a reflection of the blue sky on an otherwise overcast day.
It could only be seen from where I was sitting. It could only be seen because of a tiny break in the tree canopy in just that spot. I knew I wanted to capture it with my camera, which normally I do not even take down there.
Today as I was writing and looking for a picture, I saw this one and realized it is perfect for the “writing” of the day.
Neat, isn’t it?

In Times of Sorrow

zep 3-17sunset

From The Heart of Abba:

When sorrow comes over you,
Like a shroud,
To cover your heart and soul,
Lift your eyes to heaven.
Lift your heart.
Begin to worship Me,
And the joy that bursts over you,
Will enthrall you once again.

The sweetest JOY is often found
In the deepest sorrow.

If you are so bowed down,
That you cannot,
Lift your eyes,
Or find your voice,
Then simply “be” with Me,
Just as you are in that moment.

Then your heart,
Will hear My song to/for you.
And your heart will respond.

Thinking as I write this of Zep 3:17
and Come unto Me all ye who are weary
and Psalm 121
Also Neh 8:10b the joy of the LORD is your strength.”

Paths

Paths

Paths

Broken steps,
Ragged paths,
Stumbling,
Falling.

None of that has the power,
To stop My will being accomplished,
In/for those who are called by Me,
According to My purpose.

Have I not said,
I will make straight,
And literally level,
The path before each of you?

In the Spirit,
Realize in your spirit,
My Spirit can and will,
Lift you up.

You will/can:
Soar,
Float,
Rise,
Over the broken path.

Broken stones,
Shattered hearts,
Broken lives,
Made whole ,
In the Presence of the LORD.

Healing Hands,
Touching,
Healing,
Restoring,
Lives long held in abeyance.

Opening hearts,
Restoring…
Beyond reason,
To be as I,
Created them to be.

Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight.
Isa 45:2-3 “I will go before you
and level the exalted places,
I will break in pieces the doors of bronze
and cut through the bars of iron,
I will give you the treasures of darkness
and the hoards in secret places,
that you may know that it is I, the Lord,
the God of Israel, who call you by your name.
Psalm 51:12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
