Advent

For many of us, the church season leading up to Christmas is called “Advent”. It is a time to remember not just the first Coming of Jesus but also that He is God. He has come, He will come and He is continually coming (present).
In the beginning Elohim, created the heavens and the earth. But the beginning was not really the beginning for “I AM” aka God has always been.

The basic meaning behind the name Elohim is one of strength or power of effect. Elohim is the infinite, all-powerful God who shows by His works that He is the creator, sustainer, and supreme judge of the world. “Bring to an end the violence of the wicked and make the righteous secure—you, the righteous [Elohim] who probes minds and hearts” (Psalm 7:9). (Gotquestions.com)

I love remembering that God, (Elohim, “I AM”) came as Emmanuel, a baby to grow and then to die in order that we could have his very present help during every single time of need. “I AM” is ALL we need and not only that He is also Emmanuel, God With Us.

In church Sunday we were singing a song with Keep Watch, Take Heart and I knew I would make this poster. And that since I am very blessed to live in Florida, it would have the beach as a background.
Remember God said to the sea, “This far and no further”? (Job 38:11). That difficult thing in our life has been told, “this far and NO further” too. And we also have Emmanuel with us.

Step Away

From the Heart of Abba:
Beloved,
Come away with Me.
Step aside from the hustle and bustle of life.
Come apart and simply “be”,
With Me.

Allow My love to wash over you.
Practice being present to and with Me,
Irregardless of how you are feeling,
Or what is going on around you.

My arms are always open to receive you.
Will you enter my embrace of pure holy love?
Refreshing Love to restore your soul.
