Freedom – Just as He Said!

Just what I trusted to happen has happened since I prayed and thrust myself upon the merciful Throne of God.

MUCH BETTER DAYS, MUCH BETTER ATMOSPHERE, MUCH BETTER LIFE!

And I cover that splendid testimony with the Blood of Jesus the Christ!

When I praised and worshipped God, He basically told me that His Authority within me is TONS GREATER than the problems buffeting me. The trials, tribulations, worldly issues, and overall “harrumphs” of others need not overtake my heart or my soul, my friends!  He basically said those afflictions were “a little thing” next to His Authority within me, and then He commanded me to USE my authority to bring JOY to this place!

I did!  It worked!  IT’S STILL WORKING! HALLELUJAH!

I thank God for my testimony of restored JOY in Him… for it sets the captives free (including me) every time!

Amen.

So How Was Your Day?

Resurrection Sunday was a complete blessing and total surprise for my best friend Lynette and I.  We started out the day with praise and worship, playing “The Easter Song” by GLAD (I love that melody!) and absolutely thanking God with tears and JOY for His sacrifice and plan of salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.  We’d made food and drink and were prepared to spend the day watching The Passion and getting intimately acquainted with our emotions in conjunction with God’s agenda for the day.

Wow… what God’s agenda turned out to be, neither of us could have planned!

As we watched the powerful depiction of Jesus’ last night and day upon earth, we shared our thoughts and continued thanking God for His staggering sacrifice on our behalf.  Then midway through the morning, around 9:30 I would say, Lynette’s daughter (and my God-daughter) Jessica texted us asking to speak with us in person about some things.  She was okay but just wanted to talk. Then her boyfriend John (whose family she was visiting for the holiday) also texted us with, basically, the same request.

Needless to say, with the prospect of our plans for the day changing radically, Lynette and I prayed about responding.  With God’s permission, we ended up bringing Jess AND John to our place for Sunday dinner and fellowship!  John (who is saved, btw) had questions about God on his heart, so we talked for quite a while about them.  Jess shared her heart with us as she desired – so did John.  We sang.  We spoke of family and friends and their own deepening relationship.  We prayed and ate a fabulous meal.  The day ended with Lynette and I bringing them back to the college dormitory with hugs and kisses and thanking God even further for a marvelous – albeit totally unexpected – day of celebration.

After Lynette departed, I finished watching The Passion and I talked and prayed and cried to God.  All good stuff.  All blessed.  It’s amazing how God orchestrates and plans His will for a day.  Lynette and I thought our day would be blessed only with our own company before God.  The Lord turned our two into four and blessed the whole thing.  We ALL got to thank God for His sacrifice.  We all got to talk and clear the air and receive the restoration of God’s peace.  We all laughed and sang and were deeply blessed.  Everyone got what they needed.  I pray you all also had a good and holy, blessed day of fellowship and praise to Almighty God.  Amen.

Our God is amazing.

Thank You, Lord Jesus

Good-Friday-WallpaperThank You, dear Lord Jesus, for making it possible by Your blood for me to be reconciled and reunited with Abba.  I don’t know what I would do if I couldn’t meet with Him whenever I chose… whenever He chooses… because of You, He’s always fully accessible to me.

Dear Jesus, I know I probably won’t realize fully what a fabulous gift has been granted all of mankind through Your sacrifice which we remember on this day.  Not until Heaven when You’re dwelling with us and we behold Your hands and feet and side forever will I even begin to absorb the staggering price You paid so that I could/can call Jehovah my Father… my Daddy… as close and warm as You do.

Thank You for wanting to share Him.  Thank You for being God also.  Thank You for making the way and being the Way to life with the Eternal Godhead and fullness of JOY forever.

I said, “share Him”, but I also realize that – with Almighty God – it is possible for all of us to have all of Him, individually and corporately, always… because of YOU.  I want Abba, I want You, and I want Holy Spirit with me forever… I can’t imagine life or living without the Three of You because there is no life without You all.  The Godhead IS Life eternal.

Merciful God, I bless Your Name and I bless Your plan of Salvation for the masses.  It has saved my life.  I am among those who have entered the Ark of Safety which is the Lord Jesus the Christ Himself… and I am so glad.  I am so glad.

My soul rejoices within me such that I cannot speak except to say, with my soul and within my spirit echoed in my heart of hearts…

BLESS YOU, LORD JESUS, for Your sacrifice commemorated by us this day.  You are the Door to the Father; You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God – and we worship Your Holy Name and Bless You forevermore…

“… and we believe and are sure that YOU ARE THAT CHRIST, the Son of the Living God.” (John 6:69)

In Your Precious, Holy, and Magnificent Name we thank and Praise You.

Amen.
