From The Heart of Abba Today:

Each day is a new beginning.
Each day is a time to begin with Me,  
Walk with Me during the day and
End the day with Me. 

Be alert during the day for arrows that point to something that disturbs your heart.
Then quickly “run” to Me and ask Me what is going on.

I am always with you,
Available TO you and
Caring FOR you.

Lamentations 3:22-23
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
23 they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.

First Response (Kindness)

phili 4-9

From The Heart of ABBA Today:

Kindness is going the extra mile when your natural man wants to rant and rave.

Kindness flows from the river of Mercy-Grace Love within.

It is not a natural response, and yet it can become a first response.

In order to manifest kindness, you MUST first be filled with Living Water.

The Living Water of His presence will smooth the natural first response,

Cover it with a gentle first response.

Beloved I AM the FIRST RESPONDER but YOU must make the 911 call to activate that which is already there, ready and waiting.

Those 7 First Response Units you saw yesterday were nothing compared to the legion of angel army or the Presence of the Holy Spirit when you send forth that distress call.

The pathways of connection are made by daily being in My Word, daily and moment by moment choosing connection of a heart level with Me.

As a side note, think about your cell phone text component or word processing on a computer. It can actually learn the words you commonly use, even names spelled different than the norm. We learn the WORDS of LIFE by reading, speaking, studying and meditating upon them.

Philippians 4:5-15 NASB

 Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The LORD is near. 
 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to GOD. 
 And the peace of GOD, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in CHRIST JESUS. 
Finally, brethren whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right,  whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. 
The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the GOD of PEACE will be with you.

The Rock aka Perfection, His or Ours


From The Heart of Abba Today:

Beloved you are not perfect.
You are not going to do life perfectly.
Nor is anyone you know.
I love you, imperfections and all.

When you fail,
Come to Me.
When you fall apart,
Come to Me.

When you want to scream and pitch a fit,
Come to Me first.

Your worth, your value,
Is not linked to how well you do life.

Your worth and your ability to recognize it,
Is wrapped up in your ability to come before Me,
Just as you are,
Then allow Me,
To calm and quiet your heart,
Your mind,
Your spirit and your body.
Just like that weaned child,
At his mother’s breast.

There is, as you know,
Peace in the midst of unpeaceful circumstances.
It is a heart peace nothing can steal.
It come from a heart at rest in My love.
A heart that knows it is safe to simply “be”.

John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.

Be Still

be still

From The Heart of Abba Today:

To “do” or to “be”,
That is the question.

When faced with a choice,
To “do” or to “be”,
What will you choose?

Will you “be” with Me, first,
Before you go and “do”?

Will you “be” who I created you to “be”?

Or will you choose to do,
Anything, everything “they” set before you?

Come, My child, and simply,
Be with ME,
Before you go and do.

You are after all a human being,
Not a human doing.

Be still to know…that I am God…who loves you…who enables you…who empowers you to go and do and be who you really are.

God Is With Us

IMG_4852 copy i am is with us copy

From the Heart of Abba Today:

In the beginning,
God was I AM.
In the difficult circumstances of life,
God is I AM.
At the end of life,
God will still be I AM.

God is ALL we need,

When the future appears murky,
God is I AM.
When you can’t even envision a future,
God is still I AM.

God is:
With us,
Present to us,
For us,
Eternally omniscient,
Always omnipotent,
Vividly omnipresent,
Especially when we can’t see Him.

Heart Touches

heart touches

From the Heart of Abba Today:

Come away with Me.
If only for a moment.
Come away and receive,
What your heart longs for,
A gentle touch,
A healing touch,
A restoring touch,
A moment of knowing that,
You are safely held,
In My love,
No matter what.

There is a verse I love in Isaiah 30:15 KJV For thus saith the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not.

Why don’t we?

Precious, yes YOU….

precious copy

Read Isaiah 43…Here are some snippets from it:

.“Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine….

…When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.

…Because you are precious in my eyes, and honored, and I love you…

…Fear not, for I am with you;…

…..everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made.”….

….my servant whom I have chosen, that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he. Before me no god was formed, nor shall there be any after me….

….I, I am the LORD, and besides me there is no savior…

….I am the LORD, your Holy One, the Creator of Israel, your King.”..

…Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old.
Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert….

…the people whom I formed for myself that they might declare my praise….

…“I, I am he who blots out your transgressions for my own sake, and I will not remember your sins…

Have a Blessed Day

when life is too big

From The Heart of Abba Today:
When the longings
The hopes
The fears
When life itself is just too big
Either in a good way
Or a difficult way

There is comfort and hope and shalom
When you remember
That I search the deepest places of your heart
I am acquainted with ALL your ways
So I do see, know and care
And as always, I am Emmanuel

jer 17:10 “I the LORD search the heart and examine the mind, to reward each person according to their conduct, according to what their deeds deserve.”

Romans 8:27 And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.
Psalm 139:23 Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.
Psalm 139:1-5
O Lord, you have searched me and known me!
2 You know when I sit down and when I rise up;
you discern my thoughts from afar.
3 You search out my path and my lying down
and are acquainted with all my ways.
4 Even before a word is on my tongue,
behold, O Lord, you know it altogether.
5 You hem me in, behind and before,
and lay your hand upon me.

Sometimes we use these verses to keep us on the straight and narrow…but the truth is GOD does know our every thought, our every need, our every joy as well…so when we have those days or seasons where we just “can’t” and we don’t even know WHAT to pray for, God already knows. We can choose to trust, lean, and rely on Him.

From Abba’s Heart: Safe in His Love


From The Heart of Abba Today, Aug. 3:
There ARE things in life, seasons which are difficult.

I AM with you, always,
To the end of the earth or your time on earth.

Awareness does not change the reality.

I am your EMMANUEL.
You will never be alone.

Just as you had that sudden awareness of Me yesterday,
So also will I always send that awareness in times of need.

Do no worry about tomorrow,
Or even the next moment.
Remember, I am already in that next moment.

And YOU are SAFE in My love.

Acts 17:28a For in him we live and move and have our being
isaiah 40:11 He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.

Matthew 6:33-34a But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.

Matthew 1:23 “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”).

God of ALL Comfort

If you really look at this photo, especially the sand, you can see something interesting.

Notice that in the bottom of the picture one is just entering the beach from some steps. The sand is disturbed and that sort is difficult to maintain your balance when walking. Then as one gets closer to the water, the sand becomes hard packed which is much easier to walk on. Next there is really wet sand, and finally the actual water.

Days can be like walking on the beach. During a day we may move from difficult moments to easy moments to moments where waves are crashing over us. But the GOD of ALL COMFORT is always with us.
