Stand

trust God moon

From The Heart of Abba

Beloved,
STAND firm
In My Love
My Provision
My Protection.

That sort of standing
Is different than standing on your own two feet.

It is a LEANING all that is “you” in/on all that is “Me”

It is a running into the shelter of My Presence with you.

Remember I am always PRESENT with/to/in you
and where I am there is freedom.

Freedom from fear,
Freedom to “be” who I created you to be.
Freedom to live and move and have your very being in Me.

So Stand and continue to stand.
You are firmly and safely held secure
In My love.

(Kind of like the moon is firmly and securely set in the sky.)

Ephesians 6:12-18 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this [present] darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) places. 13 Therefore, put on the complete armor of God, so that you will be able to [successfully] resist andstand your ground in the evil day [of danger], and having done everything [that the crisis demands], to stand firm [in your place, fully prepared, immovable, victorious]. 14 So stand firm and hold your ground, having tightened the wide band of truth (personal integrity, moral courage) around your waist and having put on the breastplate of righteousness (an upright heart), 15 and having strapped on your feet the gospel of peace in preparation [to face the enemy with firm-footed stability and the readiness produced by the good news]. 16 Above all, lift up the [protective] shield of faith with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. 18 With all prayer and petition pray [with specific requests] at all times [on every occasion and in every season] in the Spirit, and with this in view, stay alert with all perseverance and petition [interceding in prayer] for all God’s people

I AM Is WITH Us

From the Heart of Abba Today:

When you are awake,
I AM is with you.

When you are asleep,
I AM is with you.

When you are happy or sad or glad,
I AM is with you.

When Iife is beautiful,
I AM is with you.

When life is sad,
I AM is with you.

When you love yourself,
I AM is with you.

When you despise yourself,
I AM is still with you

There is nowhere to run,
No escape,
From the LOVE of the Great I AM.

For He IS LOVE and,
HE IS WITH you,
No matter what.

In Exodus 3:13 God said, I AM who/that I AM, Ehyeh asher Ehyeh.
Present tense, I AM. Omnipotent, Omniscient, Omnipresent. GOD!

Note: Look carefully at the picture. KK is there. MiMi is with KK. He is not noticeable at first glance and I am not seen at all. But KK is there. I was very aware of exactly where KK was every moment, even though I was also taking pictures. KK was near water and I was making sure KK was not IN the water. Because he trusts me, he was free to roam and enjoy himself. I AM is always WITH us, always aware of us, attuned to our every need. We may “forget” He is there, but we can be sure that He is. No matter what. Wherever you are today, whatever your need, you can rest assured that God, who is still and forever, I AM is with you.

An Invitation to Come

psalm 62-8

From The Heart of Abba Today:

Beloved,

When I invite you to come to Me,
To step aside from the cares of the world,
And simply be with Me,
It is a literal invitation,
To come apart.

It does not always need to be a physical coming.
You have the ability to Come to Me,
From within other activities,
To bring your heart,
Even when you can not bring your body.

It is important to begin each day physically meeting with Me,
To set aside all the cares and distractions of life,
And come and literally “be still and know”.

I am with you during the most mundane circumstances of life also.
Whenever you feel your peace being shaken,
Pause, even if only inside your mind/heart,
Come to Me,
Invite Me into that circumstance.

You will find EVERY time,
Than I am right there.

God of ALL Comfort

IMG_3020 copy

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.

A Heart at Peace

peace in knowing

 A mended heart, or really a heart which is BEiNG mended by the LOVE of God, is a very tender heart.

 Today in my quiet time, the LORD was speaking to me of His unchanging LOVE and so I made a “reminder”. 
We are loved and beloved in The Beloved.
When we “remember” that, then all else fades away and we know beyond a shadow of a doubt that we ARE SAFE to “be”.
From the Heart of Abba today:

Beloved, I am the LORD who heals your heart.

The ONE who goes before you.

The ONE who is with you, LOVING you.

Performance has nothing to do with being loved.

Performance is what a person does for an audience.

Being loved by Me is a position and becomes, as you receive it, a state of being as well.

You ARE loved.

You step into being loved as your part of who you are.

My love is unchanging and does not depend on your actions at all.

You simply ARE loved.

Live life from the position of BELOVED and much that hurts your heart and wounds your soul will simply flow over you without penetrating to your heart or affecting your behavior because you will KNOW that no matter WHAT you ARE loved.

Beloved, you are held both tenderly and securely in My Love for you.

El Shaddai

2 cor 12-9

Whatever we need, emotionally, physically, spiritually God, our Abba is also El Shaddai.
Often like Paul, we wish things were different. We may long for a “break”.

We may have implored God to do something-anything.
In His love, He may respond as He did to Paul, My grace is enough.
He is indeed our El Shaddai.
He could indeed remove or stop whatever “it” is, but sometimes He does not.
Then our heart can cry out to him and we can no matter what come the place of REST and TRUST in His comfort.
Yes, even in the storms.
El Shaddai is our All-Sufficient Sustainer. It is God “El” who helps, and it is God as “Shaddai” who abundantly blesses with all manner of blessings, including the ability to endure what may seem unendurable.
I saw a quote I liked online. It says, “to experience God’s sufficiency, we must realize our own insufficiency.” So true.
Be blessed today in knowing that our All Sufficient God is also Emmanuel, God With Us.

A Trilogy on Bringing Ourselves and “IT”…Whatever “IT” is to HIM

I am

From The Heart of Abba:
A Trilogy on Bringing Ourselves and “IT”…Whatever “IT” is to HIM

Part I

Beloved,
When you are exhausted,
Especially when you are soul or heart weary,
As opposed to physically weary,
That is an invitation,
To stop and simply “be”,
With Me.

No agenda,
Not to study,
Just an invitation to simply come,
And Rest.
Pause and
Remember You ARE Mine.

Part II
Beloved,
When you enter a place,
I also enter that place,
For I AM is with You.

There is no place you go,
No season you endure,
Alone.
You are never alone.

All the days of your life,
“I AM” has been WITH you.

When life on earth is over,
“I AM” will still be with you.

There are times when you are
Aware of My Presence.
There are other times,
When you are,
Unaware that “I AM” is
With you.

In both sorts of times,
“I AM” never changes.

When you feel alone, lonely,
Or any other heart-longing emotion,
Remember “I AM” is there.

In fact, Beloved,
Those emotions are an invitation,
To simply pause,
Quiet your heart,
Your mind,
Your body,
And intentionally “look” for Me.

When you do so,
You will find that “I AM,
Emmanuel is there.

Part III
Beloved,
It is in the stillness that I come.
In the quietness, I come.

The world around you needs not be literally still,
But your heart becomes still.
Your body becomes still.

My spirit rises from within as well as from without.
Your heart suddenly knows that “I Am” is here/ there with you.

No need to speak although you may.

Simply enter a time of restful respite.

As you sit and just allow,
My love to touch and penetrate those famine places.
Living Water will flow,
To wash to cleanse to restore,
To bless and to draw your heart into My embrace.

Many times you have been here but it is not the (literal/tangible) place.
It is the lingering memories,
Where your heart remembers other times and places.
When “I AM” was present with you.

Peace shalom of and from your Abba to and for you…

Abba Father

psalm 73

From The Heart of Abba Today:
Beloved,
You are my child.
I care for you:
Emotionally,
Physically,
Spiritually.
I always want the best for you.

People will misunderstand you,
Abandon you,
Neglect you,
Use you.

I will always:
Be with you,
Be for you,
Be on your side.

I will NEVER abandon you,
Nor forsake you,
For you ARE mine.

I AM your comfort,
Your Strength,
Your very present help,
In times of need,
And times of peace as well.

Be Still Again

psalm 31-3

From The Heart of Abba Today:

Beloved, I love you.
I see what you are going through.
I know your heart,
And its struggles.
I know the hopes that have been laid aside.
Yes, laid aside because a hope is not abandoned.

Lay the dreams and hopes,
The “what ifs”,
As well as the “I wishes”,
At My feet.

Allow Me to hold them for you.
Then arise and go about your day,
Alert for My Presence,
As Refuge,
As travel agent (ordering your day),
And Comfort.

Sometimes during a day,
Or a season,
I will take one of those dreams, hopes, “what ifs” or “I wishes”,
And give them to you.

But remember, the package may be very different.
The dream, the hope, or even the wish,
Will have been transformed,
By Me.

And Beloved,
If I give you a “what if”,
You will find that truly,
I am ALL you need,
To deal with that as well.

No need to worry, fret, or strive.

Simply REST in Me.

Heart Yearning

Heart Yearning

There is a yearning
Which cannot be described
Only felt/sensed

It is common to all mankind
Only vital connection
With the Lord
Can satisfy that yearning

It is deep
Primordial
Always present
But not always at a level of awareness

That is why Jesus says,
“Come to Me,
All you who are weary.”

When we accept His invitation
To come,
We are always touched,
Changed,
Restored,
And filled,
With/by/in/through
His Love.
