Could we?

Could we talk of the growing shame and heartfelt sickness of self? A point of contact without desire yet full of desire? Not wanting to but doing it anyway.

Could we hold hands while revealing the heart? A tender touch of comfort with no desire but to heal, the ability to communicate without words the care for another as they pour out like a muddied stream seeking purification.

Could we find freedom from the injuries of self which is sufficient enough to share our true essence of life to another?

"Come to me all you who are heavy laden and I will give you rest," Jesus.

Love...Lost and Found

Most of us have had someone in our life which has enriched us. Being with them had made life worth living and the relationship brought deeper understanding to us about the meaning of love. We may have given so much meaning to the relationship that over time we began to find our identity through the intimacy we gained.

We all want love. We all want to know someone has deep care for us. One way that care is established as genuine is when it takes on a sacrificial nature. We only need to look toward Jesus to understand this great attraction to the purity of sacrificial love and how we can find identity through the intimate care it brings. He gave everything to allow us to become as He is and through promise dwell where He dwells.

Jesus was and is the great validate of men and women. Through His love and sacrifice He has shown how great our worth is to God the Father. Our worth is based on the Father’s love. Our personal worth is not founded merely on another man or woman. Only He knows us and loves perfectly.

Jesus was betrayed with a hug and a kiss. But that did not stop him from being raised from the death betrayal brought to Him. He was raised in greater power and identity.

God knows our deepest hurt has come from our deepest love. He knows what betrayal does to soul. He knows what love lost can do to identity.

My prayer and blessing is for all those who have lost love and have found a death in the process find no corruption of soul. But become resurrected in newness of life with secure knowledge of personal identity to God through Christ, the fellowship of family and with an eye to the future in the hopes of friends yet met.

My Lady Grace

There is a wonderful lady called Grace. When she found me I was living a life of selfishness and thoughtlessness. I was living a life of sin, sin against God others and myself.

Grace entered into my life with a smile. She opened her arms wide and wrapped me in the warmth of her love. Her acceptance caused rejection to disappear and brought a healing to my heart. My life took on a dramatic change.

Grace came into my life and changed my sight. Through the dynamic light of her personality my focus began to change. Those things I once saw as acceptable I could no longer allow.

Because of her presence in my life she has shown me to renounce, rebuke, and turn away from such things. Grace was placed in my life for purpose and a large part of that purpose was for salvation and to find the way of restoration.

Grace is a true lady, she understands my failures and my mistakes but she will not allow me to stay in them. As with all real ladies she sets her boundaries and will not tolerate abuse. She is here to help but beware, do not mock her nor abuse her.

Come to Me!

Know says the Lord there are those who’s tongue are a ready writer. They speak and their words are written into the hearts of men.

But I did not send them. Their words are not my words.

I call my servants to hold my people accountable in word and action but these speak of a false salvation a self salvation!

They seek to speak words of comfort enlightened by their own understanding of human nature all the while through the deception of their own hearts teaching, twisting and confirming among themselves that My grace is a license for sin.

When did I give My grace as a license to sin? My grace was given to bring freedom not bondage. My Grace was given to preserve Righteousness not destroy it!

They seek to heal yet give false healing! Where is repentance!

Where is the one speaking clearly My words? Repent be baptized every one of you in My Spirit and washed in My Word!

Come to Me with a desire to find freedom from the sins in your heart. Confess and reason with Me says the Lord and though your sins be as scarlet I will make you white a snow.

Come to Me and not these false teachers of men’s wisdom and I will heal you and remove from you the profanities spoken from your heart. I will place My words in your mouth and you will no longer walk in your ways but Mine says the Lord!

Come to Me and recieve the sincerity and dignity you were created to know!

Truth and Honesty

Honesty reveals our heart truth sets it free.

My last blog dealt with love and lies this post is about truth and honesty. As stated in the last post honesty equates love is present in inner personal relationships.

Honesty reveals the heart and presents our feelings, thoughts and actions concerning any situation we have faced in life. When honesty is presented it leaves the door open for empathy or for judgment.

Honesty gives clear choice to the person presented with it. Because of the fear of rejection some refuse to be honest. Others are users and pathological liars. Pathological liars can blame you for believing their lies. Pathological liars can believe they are being honest.

Honesty though a good trait for all of mankind is not truth. Honesty reveals our feelings or thoughts even if they are misguided. Honesty opens the door for truth to be known but is not inherently truth.  

Honesty can give to others a glimpse into our injuries and sins. Honesty can allow us to be open and let others know we have hurt them and possibly open the way for truth.

Truth on the other hand heals us of injury and sets us free from sin. Truth gives us the insight to protect ourselves and others. Truth acknowledges dignity and created purpose. Some who claim truthfulness are only being honest and do not have the maturity nor insight to walk in truth.

Father reveal Your truth to us; allow us to see who we are in the light of Your son. Reveal to us the difference between honesty and truth, the difference between our own misguided beliefs and beliefs based in truth. We are so quick to judge others by our own opinions help us seek to minister Your truth. Give us the discernment and wisdom to set proper boundaries toward those who would use us, thank you in Jesus name.

Love and Lies.

Love is not reflected through a lie, protection is not granted when it's told, lies are unseen hate and when found out they destroy the security they seek to build.

Shouldn't we be good to others and ourselves by speaking honestly? It is amazing that someone can be dishonest and think they are protecting us. In reality they are protecting self without regard to us.

Yes they can feel they are protecting us from the feelings of hurt their honesty would cause but really...who are they to deny us those feelings and the weight of thoughts they provoke. We are in part made up an emotional being. Feelings are one witness in self which allows us to make proper decisions. By lying as a means to protect they are actually stealing our free will. They are removing our ability in making choice through deceiving us.

Love will always seek honesty in any given situation. Love should be the basis of all communication. Love allows others the ability to know and be known through expressing thoughts and feelings. Love allows others to make a choice based on honest input.

Love is destroyed or weakened when lies are told. Perfect love cast out fear. The basis of trust is destroyed when lies are found. There can be no perfect love where there is fear and mistrust.

Jesus said Satan is the father of all lies. Lies are Satans creation. As Gods creation should we speak lies? Every person we meet is also Gods creation. Can we build or maintian creation by speaking something into it not created by God. The best way to encourage and build healthy relationships is to speak what God speaks.

This is a wonderful scripture that gives us a godly foundation to speak....

Php 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Look to the Horizon

Look to the horizon says the Lord for I Am doing a new thing the first shall be last and the last shall be first. In a single month I will begin to visit the earth with My Law and My Grace to bring judgement and salvation to each who has a heart to hear.

To some an attack to others salvation. Some will walk hand in hand with demons and others in hand with angels. Know says the Lord the lines will again be drawn on the ground and men will be given a chance to choose. No excuse can be given because I prove myself righteous in revealing.

I will pour out my Glory without measure upon My people says the Lord and they will walk in grace and truth. My Spirit will be their only source and their words will fill the earth and not fall to the ground. I will call forth the Body and Bride of My Son to do exploits, Yes in the presence of great and terrible destruction they will be the source of My peace revealed.

They will have all things in common and again the world will be shaken by the voice of their witness.

Do not fear what is coming says the Lord for it is My hand at work. I will cause time to be no more for all will dwell in eternity with Me. I will change you, I will restore you to your original place in Me incorruptible and eternal. Sin will be no more because of the sacrifice of blood and the power of the Resurrection. Those who overcome will kiss my Son.
