Shalom

From The Heart of Abba Today:

Beloved,
This is a new day,
A brand new day,
A fresh day.

It is good to begin a new day,
In My presence,
In My Word.

“I AM” is the comfort your soul/heart longs for.
“I AM” is all you need.
“I AM” is always with you,
Loving you,
Leading you.

There is NO circumstance of your life,
Outside My will for you.

Come to Me.
Rejoice in My presence with you.

My Presence is Shalom,
Enfolding,
All encompassing,
Peace filled
Hopeful,
Shalom.

 

Hope

From The Heart of Abba Today

Beloved,
Never despair.

Even when you feel hopeless,
There is hope,
Because I am your Hope.

No situation or circumstance of life,
Is ever devoid of hope because I am your Hope.

I have promised never to leave you nor forsake you,
Therefore, you always have hope.

Remember you do not live by sight alone,
But by ever Word that proceeds from Me.

When hopeless despair threatens you,
Be it for a moment or a season,
Run to Me.

If you can not Run to Me,
Then fall in a helpless clump,
And I will come and rescue you.

Verses to ponder:
Isaiah 35:4 Say to those who have an anxious heart, “Be strong; fear not! Behold, your God will come with vengeance, with the recompense of God. He will come and save you.”
Heb. 6:19 We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain,
Matthew 4:4 But he answered, “It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”
2 Cor. 5:7 for we walk by faith, not by sight.
Deu. 31:8 It is the LORD who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.”

Whispers of Rest

I am reading a book by Bonnie Gray called Whispers of Rest. It is really good. She has been challenging us to rediscover our dreams and/or begin to dream. At this season of life, which is very new and fragile in a way, I am learning to live again.

From the Heart of Abba Today:

 

This is the dream for now.
To REST in Me,
To come and continue to come to Me
From within every single moment of life.
To live as Beloved.
No need to measure up, get it right or figure “it” out.
Safe and secure.
To simply “be”,
Who you already are….Whispersofrestday 20.jpg

Rest vs Frazzled

psalm 46-10aa.jpg

From The Heart of Abba:

We were at worship Sunday and singing this song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eFByOX8Fb0M and the Lord began to remind my heart:

When you are tired of/from standing,
Weary from the race,
That is not a bad thing,
Or an indication that you have been bad.

It is rather an invitation to lay down and enter My rest.
Literally lay down,
Or choose a place to sit that creates rest in your spirit.

It is simply time to hide all that is you, in the shelter of the Most High, under the shelter of My wings.

Verses to Ponder:
In Luke 10:41-42 Martha is harried and worried from doing and Jesus speaks to her, I think cutting right to her true heart need and says, “But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.”
And that one thing is to simply “be” with Jesus, resting all that we are in all that He is.

Psalm 91:4 He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.

Matthew 11:28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

Exodus 33:14 14 The LORD replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”

Psalm 46:10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”

By His Wounds

From The Heart of Abba:
 
I was listening to a song which has only one lyric, “By His wounds, we are healed”. The lyrics were stuck in my mind. So I began to ponder, this is the result.
Be blessed in the LOVE of God.
 
By His Wounds,
We are healed.
 
First in the Spiritual, then as we come into alignment in the natural,
Emotionally, Physically,
Heart, mind, body, soul and spirit.
 
Not by any person are we healed,
It is by the Spirit of the Living God.
 
Circumstances may remain essentially the same,
Our aches and pains (physical and emotional)
May remain….
 
We ARE healed simply by coming into alignment
With the will and Person of the One who loves us.
 
We are healed, changed, transformed and renewed
Each time we pause and enter into communion with Him.
 
So WHY do we look to others?
To circumstances?
To anything other than being still and
Resting all that we are in/on Yeshua?
 
1 peter 5:6-7 Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, so that in due time He may exalt you. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
Psalm 55:22
Cast your burden upon the LORD and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken.
Jeremiah 17:14 Heal me, LORD, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise.

His Own

Psalm 63-8 .jpg

From The Heart of Abba Today:

Beloved,
You are mine.
I have GOOD plans for your life.

I have promised never to leave you,
Nor forsake you.

In fact I am He who carries you.
Even to your gray hairs
Or loss of hairs,
I AM will carry you.

Surrounding you with songs of joy
Sung from My heart into yours.

I have promised to
Support you, uphold you, Enfold you
By My love.

My strong right arm is with you.
My eyes are always upon you.

Why?
Because I love you and
You are mine.

Psalm 63:8 I cling to you; your right hand upholds me.
Ephesians 4:15 AMPC Rather, let our lives lovingly express truth [in all things, speaking truly, dealing truly, living truly]. Enfolded in love, let us grow up in every way and in all things into Him Who is the Head, [even] Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One).
Psalm 32:7 You are my hiding place; You, Lord, protect me from trouble; You surround me with songs and shouts of deliverance. Selah.

 

 

Gift of God

steadfast love.jpg

From The Heart of Abba Today:

I had been remembering how much I loved day lilies in my early adulthood.

On an emotionally difficult day, while exercising in the pool, I looked and God had sent me a blooming day lily right in my flowerbed.

He was gracious enough to draw my attention to it.

You know a day lily only blooms for ONE day.
So in order for me to experience it, Abba arranged a whole bunch of things.

Surely He is El Roi. God who sees and cares and knows.

What is your Abba sending your way today? May we all have eyes to see…

Remember…

From the Heart of Abba

Where do YOU need a touch from God today?
In what area of your life do you need to know that God is with you?

Beloved,
“I AM” goes before you
In every moment of your life,
“I AM” is with you

There is nothing,
No moment,
No event,
No season of your life,
You will go through,
Or have gone through,
That is devoid of
The Presence of “I AM”.

Come to Me, Beloved,
Come just as you are
Bringing all that is “you”
Into awareness of and
Alignment with “I AM”.

Ask for the ability to trust,
What you you cannot see,
But know is true.

“I AM” is always with you,
Always loving you,
Always going before you.
Simply because you are,
My Own.

Happy Blessed Mother’s Day

mother's day.jpg

From The Heart of Abba

For those without a mother,
For those whose children are far away,
Or those who have no children,
For those who long or longed for a child,
For those who are in sorrow for a mother
Who has gone before, or
Even worse a child who has died,
For those who are separated from family,
For those who may feel lost or forlorn,
For those for whom this weekend may be hard,

May the LORD,
Who is the GOD of ALL COMFORT,
Draw your heart close to his.

May the God of ALL PEACE gather you under His Wings.

May the Spirit,
Who continually flows to you and through you,
Touch you with healing,
To restore to you,
ALL that is missing,
Or feels like it is missing in your life.

God has promised to meet all our needs.
This weekend may be hard for you,
In small ways or what feels like insurmountable ways.
But God….
Has also promised to make all things work to our good.

So for the lost,
The lonely,
The grieving ones,

Or any hidden areas where we feel that way
In our own heart for whatever reason,

May this be a weekend where your heart,
Your mind,
Your body,
Your soul and
Your spirit have a FRESH encounter with LOVE aka Jesus.
