Walking In The Love Of The Lord; Casting All My Cares On Him!
From the time of Noah, God's promises have been true. My one hope is to press into the Father of All Creation, the Lord God Almighty of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and the Prophets, for He is the Word of Life and from the Beginning. Holy, righteous and just and there is no truth outside of Him. May the Lord Be Praised Forever!
In the sanctuary of solitude
Serene my thoughts kneel
Bowing to hold my heart in sacrifice
Keeps me quiet for just an hour
You are gentle with me Spirit
Sealed from urges to go mad
Seventy year's meditation offers
You Spirit, a few morsels of time
The stairs to the Secret Place
In the shadow of Your wings
Have been built on years of longing
Though just a speck in forever more
I open my hands before You
And look - they're filled with peace
My soul too is mended, rested, refined
Made sacred in my worship here with You.
|Dear God, my Father, Lord and King,
In the darkest of days, when the evil forces of Satan seem to have an overwhelming power to reign down terror, Your light of steadfast love and redemption will dismantle and destroy all the works of our enemies. You will draw all of Your beloved to Your “Way of Holiness” so that nothing unclean may do harm to those who are Yours. The day of singing and gladness are on the saints the more the darkness tries to be more horrifying one day to the next. Sorrow and remorse is completely overcome by the Lord Jesus Christ, and his Disciples are on the road to eternal victory. To Your Glory Most High God.
Isaiah 35:4 & 8 & 10
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.”
And a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the Way of Holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it. It shall belong to those who walk on the way; even if they are fools, they shall not go astray.
And the ransomed of the LORD shall return and come to Zion with singing; everlasting joy shall be upon their heads; they shall obtain gladness and joy, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
I will put away the sorrow and sighing as You, O Lord, have already won the battle over sin, death and darkness. Your light shines on the “Way of Holiness” and I will praise You for the love that You demonstrate with each new day. Alleluia!
"May Be Amazing!"

"March 26, Through April 3, 2023"
You are Holy, Righteous and Just and everything that has been created, devised, planned, and executed is through Your great, awesome wisdom and power. You alone secure everything, including the generations. You make all things to be at the disposal of those who will bring about the revolution of Your Kingdom on the Earth. Your praise will be lifted up by Your own children, the offspring of every generation, to Your honor, glory and praise! Amen.
Of Old You laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of Your hands. They will perish, but You will remain; they will all wear out like a garment. You will change them like a robe, and they will pass away, but You are the same, and Your years have no end.
The children of Your servants shall dwell secure; their offspring shall be established before You.
I will worship You, O Lord in the beauty of Your holiness. Be exalted! I will instruct my heart to look to the God of all Creation with understanding and wisdom that all that is blessed in this life is from You. You cultivate my heart with truth - that I may walk in the path of righteousness all of my days. Thank You Father for working in me. Cultivating me.

THE DAWN PROCLAIMS CHRIST
Garden in the mist of a new day's dawn
Light tear filled eyes soft, love filled eyes
That look for the Son of God, the Christ
Precious ointments for His body.
They will need help to roll the stone away
God provides a Gardner,
but the stone's been rolled away.
He is risen, Christ is risen,
The Son of Love whose resurrection
Ignited rebirth will tilt the world over

Rejoice Holy People Of The Lord
There is nothing in me that qualifies me to enter into the courts of heaven with praise. And yet the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, calls my name. Gives me a new course to my life and requests with fervent lips of love, "Praise Me! Praise Me who made you and redeemed you from the pit. Out of a groove that put me on a road to death, and destruction, the Holy God of the Universe, radically changed my course. I am now a citizen of Heaven!
I praise You O Lord! I Praise You for Your Love! I Praise You because You Are Love. I Praise You because You are life and have made death to have no hold on my life! Alleluia!
ISAIAH 61:10 - 11
~I will greatly rejoice in the Lord,
My soul shall be joyful in my God;
For He has clothed me with the garments of salvation,
He has covered me with the robe of righteousness,
As a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments,
And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
11~~ For as the earth brings forth its bud,
As the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth,
So the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.

I am glad for my daughter Kim today. As I remembered Pastor Tosha in a dream, I am reminded of my daughters Molly, Angela and Kim. But it is Kim who is on my heart. I pray that she will find the love that is an eternal, ever burning kind of love. Bless her husband Nate as well as they journey in this life without shame, guilt and regret
"I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy,..."
When will I see my sweet girl again Lord? Will I be able to hold back the tears for all the lost years between us? Please make my joy full and bring her to me, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
Gracious Heavenly Father, Your display of "shock and awe" last night is still ringing in my ears. What lightening what thunder. Everything lit up in the midnight sky and the heavens roared. I am glad to be Your child as You prepare for the homegoing of Your church. How wonderful it will be to meet Your Son Jesus in the air on that glorious day! I will remember last night as how quick and glorious will be the church's snatching away in the Hour of our Lord.
Thank You for the reminder!
1 Thessalonians 4:15-18
For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God.
And the dead in Christ will rise first.
Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words.
Your Church is thriving Lord, Your church is glowing with beauty. Those who were not of us are departing swiftly and those chosen for the return of Your Son are putting on their veil, adorning themselves with service, and proclaiming that the awesome day of the Lord is at hand! To You be all glory, honor and praise, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
Everyone who seeks the Lord finds Him. The favor we find with God is that He knows our name. In finding God, favor is immediately granted to receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit. Infilled with God's own person, His glory is revealed to us and we are revived.
Old passes away and all things are made new. Everything that I once held dear is now rubbish compared to knowing the One True God, El Shaddai, Yaweh Yeshua, Adonai!
Even on days when I forget to thank Him, and praise Him and worship Him, He remembers me, and shows me a kindness, or a deliverance from some crisis, or even a gentle word of encouragement, and I know I have His favor.
Somedays, even as Moses was required to do, I must ask for His favor. He has always granted my request.
For how shall it be known that I have found favor in your sight, I and your people? Is it not in your going with us, so that we are distinct, I and your people, from every other people on the face of the earth?”
And the Lord said to Moses, “This very thing that you have spoken I will do, for you have found favor in my sight, and I know you by name.” Moses said, “Please show me your glory.”
As the train rolls through my city I am reminded of God's favor. Because He loves America, and the children of those who made a covenant with him in 1620, He has once again sent His revival fires. I can feel it my blood and I can feel it in my bones. He has sent revival to bring all of His children home! I will look up! I will keep a careful watch for He is returning soon!

A Missouri Friend
Today my Lord has taught me a bit more about being a friend. He put me on the highway out to where an acquaintance of mine works. J agreed that we should go talk to him. We knew him from a fellowship group at church. The Lord had an invitation for him. It was an easy contact. We chatted. He received what I had to say. I turned to go and something in the spirit had shifted. I quickly reviewed my words to make sure I had not said something offensive.
No. At least not vocabulary wise, but something in the spirit was troubled and I knew it driving all the way home. In my bedroom I challenged that "thing" that had risen, that was a joy stealing, demon. Never in my life had I encountered this spirit, but there it was, and I warred against it, until I sensed God had taken over the battle. It was won. My sense of joy and peace returned. I was certain this was true from my "new Missouri friend."
The battle was not mine, but I certainly was assaulted in the spirit as was my "new Missouri friend."
My new friend is now mine, and he is my first Missouri friend, and no demon in hell is going to stand in the way of our friendship growing! Blessed be the name of the Lord, the One, who had just taught me, the way to take the battle to the enemy, by way of the "Holy Spirit anointing," from Adonai.
Out of my core, came rivers of living water, and by decree, declaration and prayer, moved the battle into my Father's realm. Thank You Jesus!
I am going to love and cherish my new friend right into the eternal Kingdom of the Living Holy God!
JOHN 7:37 - 39
On the last day of the feast, the great day, Jesus stood up and cried out, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’”
Now this he said about the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were to receive, for as yet the Spirit had not been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.

Unforgettable, Beautiful and An Excellent Wife
A mother, in Proverbs 31, admonishes her son to find for himself the "Excellent Wife." Mom, of course, takes all of the guess work out of who she she is considering for her son. She itemizes all of the traits an "Excellent Wife" must possess, and one may wonder what kind of a miracle is this extraordinary person! But of all the "Excellent Wife's" cherished characteristics, this, in my experience, is the most vital for a peaceful, prosperous, life: Proverbs 31:30 "Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised."
Proverbs 31:10 -14
An excellent wife who can find?
She is far more precious than jewels.
11 The heart of her husband trusts in her,
and he will have no lack of gain.
12 She does him good, and not harm,
all the days of her life.
13 She seeks wool and flax,
and works with willing hands.
14 She is like the ships of the merchant;
she brings her food from afar.”
My precious wife J, is truly a gift from God. J is the "Excellent Wife" of Proverbs 31. She could have prodded and pushed me to come up to her standards for being the "perfect husband." Instead she served me, loved me, and sowed words of kindness and encouragement until God helped me become the priest and king of our household. J has been my greatest, most faithful friend, and I truly would not be whom I am today if not for her prayers and steadfast love.
It was this week 48 years ago at a celebration of her twenty-first birthday, that I fell in love with J and committed my heart and life to her. Like all love stories ours is filled with both joys and sorrows. But today, we celebrate an Old Year Passing and a New Year Beginning more in love now than ever before!
