Reasons Why My Heart Sings 21

From a human perspective love feels right/ means being comforted and being understood emotionally.

God’s version of love requires us to put on the Whole Armor so that we can stand!

God takes into consideration our need to be comforted, understood, to have real and lasting stability, for unconditional love and opportunities to grow!

God does not waste one single moment of our life experiences. They all can be turned into divine teaching sessions!

God does not want you and I to bow to  fear AKA ( false evidence appearing real) .

In prayer we often ask God to divert our fears or we ask HIM to direct us around our fears.

Danger and fears are not always perceived as the same, by GOD.

What God  often does instead is to walk with us through our fears in very creative ways and HE provides us with the tools to over come them and place the enemy under our feet!

Good earthly fathers have many of these same qualities of helping their children do things that they did not think they were capable of achieving!

God’s way of nurturing is also to give us a deep sense of our real identity and sense of worth.

When we know our value and worth to HIM, then we can love ourselves although we are perfectly imperfect!

 

 

My heart sings HIS praises at this moment because…

 

205. I do not have to be perfect God’s strength is made perfect in my weaknesses! Through my cracks and breaks HIS glory can be seen by others that much more:-)

206.  I am so thankful for the fact that I continue to bear fruit in HIM.

207.  I don’t even mind and am thankful for the pruning that must take place constantly in my life so that I can continue to bear fruit into my old age!

208.  I am thankful being delivered from being B.U.S.Y (being under Satan yoke). God desires instead for me to BE more in HIM  not do more in an already impossible schedule.

209.  I am thankful for the God opening the eyes of my heart to see how perfectly HE has molded and made me to fulfill the unique calling that HE has placed on my life.

210. Thank you GOD for making me totally unique and irreplaceable no-one else can ‘snatch my value”  or take my place in your heart nor walk the path and reach souls exactly as You have crafted me to show YOU to this dying world.

211. Thank you, Heavenly Father for rescuing me from no-mans-land of self-service!

212. Thank you for the special gift promised to each of us that reads the book of revelation. Each time I have read it ( twice now) I have consciously been aware of being blessed but at this time I want to really focus in and thank you for the blessings that I have given that I have yet to perceive!

213.  Thank you, beloved Father for being the sweetener in my life that otherwise would be quite sour!

214. Lord, you’re so good and I am so thankful for YOUR heart, virtues and aspects of your character in each person, or situation you have ever provided to bless me  in this life! You’re not invisible to my heart, soul and spirit! You are everywhere! Thank you for for giving me the means ( method) to see and be with YOU in this life ( and beyond).

Reasons Why My Heart Sings 17

This day, I have been deeply moved by the fact that God has called me a friend!

My relationship with Christ is like a mufti-faceted crystal.

HE is my Lord.

HE is my Savior.

HE is my Friend.

HE is my counselor.

HE has been the Father long-lost breaking the mold of what I thought a Fathers love would mean.

HE mirrors to my soul the foundational elements of what my earthly relationships should contain in order to contain life in them.

157. I am thankful for the approach of a brand New Year!

158. I am thankful for my autonomy and loving my family and friends enough to share a measure of this gift with them.

159. I am thankful for the way GOD uses conflict to bring about a deeper awareness of how we move and breathe in relation to those around us.

160.  I am thankful for learning one of the keys to being a  peace-maker is not to attack nor to avoid.

161.  I am thankful for the gift of deeper clarity of perception that hindsight brings.

162.  I am thankful for healing of old emotional issues.

163.  I am thankful for the greater freedom experienced after I’ve walked through a trial.

164.  I am thankful for knowing and accepting that my journey with GOD was never meant to be on a crowded HWY!

165.  I am thankful for the fact that GOD has allowed me to know and experience HIS beauty, glory and wonder!!!

166. I am thankful learning not to’ judge’ even when hurt. Instead I evaluate people, places and circumstances. I can check, look at data and draw conclusions about the effectiveness or none effectiveness of people, place and circumstance in my life, then pray to GOD for further guidance on how to best go ahead.

167. I am thankful knowing that speaking the truth in difficult situations is NOT the same as evil speaking. The truth is often a hard pill to swallow even under the best of circumstances!

Beloved Father!

There is nothing in this universe as glorious and awesome as Your very Being! I long for Your presence in my world above all else!! You are goodness, perfection, beauty and food for my very soul. May You grow and magnify Your greatness in my heart, mind, body, spirit and world daily until You have Your being within me to YOUR full satisfaction and to Your greatest glory.

Who Am I, that You’re mindful of me? That You hear me, when I call upon Your Holy name?

You blow my mind and delight my heart!!

This is not my ministry but it is a place and a space for me to show case YOU more clearly and fully to a dying world that needs the gifts of Your being.

Reveal Yourself as The One And Only GOD…

GOD The Father, GOD The Son and Holy Spirit.

I adore and Worship YOU in all of Your functions, LORD!

168. I am most thankful for the fact that “I am A Friend of GOD!”

When I Say I Am A Christian-By: Carol S. Wimmer

When I Say I Am A Christian

When I say …”I am a Christian,”
I’m not shouting “I am saved”
I’m whispering “I was lost!”
That is why I chose this way.”

When I say…”I am a Christian,”
I don’t speak of this with pride.
I’m confessing that I stumble and need someone to be my guide.

When I say…”I am a Christian,”
I’m not trying to be strong.
I’m professing that I’m weak and pray for strength to carry on.

When I say…”I am a Christian,”
I’m not bragging of success.
I’m admitting I have failed and cannot ever pay the debt.

When I say…”I am a Christian,”
I’m not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are too visible but God believes I’m worth it.

When I say…”I am a Christian,”
I still feel the sting of pain.
I have my share of heartaches which is why I seek His name.

When I say…”I am a Christian,”
I do not wish to judge.
I have no authority I only know I’m loved.

Reasons Why My Heart Sings 15

Who is my Mother?

Who is my Father?

Who are my sisters and brothers?

I am a born again Christian.

Hallelujah!!!!

What exactly does the phase’ born again Christian’ mean?

It means that I have experienced two births.

One brought me into this world and just like you I was born of earthly parents and into a specific blood-line.

Within this earthly blood-line I have a mother, father, grand-parents, brothers, aunts, uncles, and cousins!

That was my first birthing experience.

But, my spiritual birth is what makes my heart sing!

This birth was one of my spirit coming to life through the person of Jesus Christ!

How can this be?

It was one very unlikely meeting.

A meeting of life v/s death.

Jesus, is light and life and I before I  joined with HIM was a shell ( a body with some basic wiring brain functions) and accumulated past experiences or memories.

I had a soul that had experienced its share of pleasure and troubles but my spirit was a place of voidness.

Many in the world still mistake that they have a living soul as being interchangeable with being alive spiritually.

The soul and spirit are not the same but communication can and does take place back and forth between the two.

The Spirit of God moved upon the empty/ darkness of my spirit.

And HE spoke LIFE into a place that was once dead as the dead-sea!

These are the Words God spoke directly into my spirit.

John 1:1-5 (NLT) 1 In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He existed in the beginning with God. 3 God created everything through him, and nothing was created except through him. 4 The Word gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought light to everyone. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.

Message Bible  John 1:1-5 The Word was first, the Word present to God, God present to the Word. The Word was God, in readiness for God from day one. Everything was created through Him; nothing not one thing!- came into being without Him. What came into existence was Life, and the Life was Light to live by. The Life-Light blazed out of the darkness; the darkness couldn’t put it out.

I knew not this above bible verse by heart through any effort of my own but it was the Holy Spirit that spoke these words unto me and I repeated them out-loud as I lay in my bed one evening with tears in my eyes!

These words brought a deep warmth to my renewed spirit!

I like yourself was born into an earthly family whom I love dearly.

However, Jesus Christ is my closest kinsman and my redeemer so HE is closer and dearer to me than any previous blood ties.

HE shed HIS blood to create a ‘new’ family/bloodline!

God, The Father loves all people and wishes that none should perish.

HE invites all to accept HIS very precious gift ‘Jesus Christ’ ( His only begotten Son) gracious invitation for communion and  fellowship in the dance of eternal life!

So all of you whom share this precious blood-line of Jesus Christ with me are my mother, father, sisters and brothers:-)

Let’s celebrate HIM as the gift that HE is this Holiday Season and let’s not forget that Jesus is the reason for every season!!!!!

It’s Wednesday and the best way to get over the hump is to make today a Holy Experience!!

Are you celebrating a personal harvest? I am.

In order to bring in the harvest we must make room. And sometimes a bit of remodeling is necessary as well!

Remodeling: Does is always have to be a messy affair?  Do you know what I mean?

But I trust GOD for the perfect pattern that is emerging beneath the remodeling chaos!

Getting right to my reason for my being here: to lift up my gratitude for my one and only Jesus who makes all things possible within me and my life affairs!

135. I am thankful for not being able to met my needs to satisfaction outside of GOD because it makes me desire and reach HIM that much more.

136.  I am thankful for the move of change going on in my life.

137. I am thankful that I am not in control and sitting in the drivers seat. God’s leadership of the resources HE has give me is much more effective than my own!

Reasons Why My Heart Sings 11

It’s 8:30 AM EST and GOD has been moving and shaking up things in my inner world.

You know that’s “da powa” of prayer.. to change the human heart.

Any of y’all know what it’s like to have GOD shake things up?

You know…

Loosing that make believe sense of being self sufficient and in control.

Pride rolling off my person like a mud land-slide!

Generally the experience of being drilled and turned.

Feeling the reality of old battle scars. Revisiting the raw, and the land of the unresolved.

Does this sounds like fun cupcake?

Well, what is fantastic is the GOD meets us and does some of HIS best work in those kind of  places ( in the human soul)!

 

Yes, my protection comes from the Lord, The Holy One! HE is the Ruler and King of my heart!
