Reasons Why My Heart Sings 19

When I was a child I remember each Wednesday or Friday ( depending on the year and grade level) being ‘show and tell’.

Do you remember those school day, school days, dear old golden rule days?

Now that I am a student/ disciple of Jesus Christ I’m back in school!

Feeling like a child, in that everything I visit and learn being fresh and new.

Christ has restored my capacity for pure wonder!!

Secretly I think HE kind of enjoys my awkwardness and utter dependence upon HIM ( wink)!

HE likes to use show and tell techniques in the teaching model HE employes with me.

AND.. I often feel a little like Alice In Wonderland falling down the rabbit hole ( wee) 🙂

Or even like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, watching Kansas go bye bye:-)

See, when we take trips like these, my only anchor is my relationship with The Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Wanna make HIM smile, trust Him! As it really speaks deeply to HIS God-hood!

If you want to walk in The Spirit with GOD, then your going to have to turn in your perceptions for HIS.

You’re game I know and it all sounds simple enough, right?

But, seeing and looking at life through someone else eyes means letting go of your own sense of  reality…what is concrete, unchangeable and immutable.

Not so easy, right?

But, your life will be changed forever in the most profound easy and you’ll be ruined for walking through this life without the sacred peeking out from behind every experience:-)

This week beloved Father I want to make mention of  some of the things I am especially thankful for.

179. I am thankful for the fact that YOU are the most awesome teacher ( knowing what it means to administer a lesson holistically).

180.  After said lesson, thanks for dropping me back off  safely in Kansas!

181. Thank you for helping me to understand the deeper reasons behind the three-letter word… why

182. Thank you for revealing your self as the reason behind all other reasons.

183. Thank you for showing me that the only cure for idolatry is a life spent in constant worship of YOU!

184.  Thank you for controlling my thoughts so that they do not control me.

185. Thank you for the richness and depth of experiences that you give me to further show more aspects of Your glory:-)

186. Thank you for being The only one true GOD and the head of my life.

187.  Thank you for being my best friend ( sorry it took me so long to see this fact)!

188. Thank you for meeting me at the Cross and teaching me that YOU are bigger than all my problems and directing my thoughts back to YOU.

189. I crown you as King and ruler of my heart ( thank YOU Jesus for residing there)!




Reasons Why My Heart Sings 13

Praise GOD!!

I know I’ve been ‘changed’  because my name is in the ‘Lambs’ book of life’!

So much of what I have to be grateful for can not be expressed easily in nice neat little sentences but this fact will not keep me from the process:-)

I missed posting last week but GOD had to clear a path so that I could get back to HIM here, in this place at this time!

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?

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.

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!
