New Season, New Hope

I hardly know where to begin but let me start by praising Jesus for all His good and kind mercies. I had been thinking every year would be the same but this year has been so different. And what a difference too, as I’ve been on a journey of finally accepting my past and other issues, and realizing that these don’t need to define me anymore. There are people that Abba has brought in my life that have been speaking His message to me that I can be an overcomer! I do have the victory in Him! I am His child!

Faith in action, faith in provision, faith in perseverance, faith in His strength in my weakness, etc and so on. I can’t wait to see what’s next!

Till Jesus wills it,
Godspeed!

Wounds and Scars

hopepic2
If someone asks, ‘What are these wounds on your body?’ they will answer, ‘The wounds I was given at the house of my friends.’
Zechariah 13:6

 
Funny, you never really think of your friends betraying you until one day it happens and you’re like, “what just happened?” It blindsides you out of left field.  With an enemy you rather expect it and look out for it, but not from someone you trust.
 
The psalmist speaks of my own familiar friend who I had trusted has lifted his hand against me. He and I walked with each other and shared bread together.
 
Christianity is an interesting faith because things happen that you’d have never guess would happen and hoped that it wouldn’t. In another place in Micah, I believe, it says not to trust anyone – not even the wife or the husband leaning against you because sometime they might use whatever you have and say against you. 
 
What I would like to be and happen is to be true when the rubber meets the road. When the time of testing happens, to be a true friend and not wound the one closest to you.  But I know its not always like that.  Although, even wounds can be trophies to remember and rejoice about.  Again, Christianity is interesting.  Reactions that God requires is a head turner.  They are totally against the grain of what the world calls rational and realistic. 
 
In closing, the words of Paul are thus;  From now on, let no one cause me trouble, for I bear on my body the marks of Jesus. Galatians 6:17
 
Till Jesus wills it,
Godspeed!

Christ is All and is In All.

My desires have been in conflict for a long time now.  I have a wish for a husband and a deeper desire for intimacy with Jesus Christ.  Meanwhile I’ve had to see friends and family get engaged and marry, while I have seemingly been moved over.  And I confess, seeing my circumstances and hurting over this has made me blind to the truth of what Jesus has been trying to teach me.  He wants me, and He wants me to choose Him over all.  He wants me to be so happy in Him that nothing else compares.  My wants and desires aren’t bad but they aren’t beneficial to what I need now, and that is being all and giving all of myself to my heavenly husband and Lover of my soul who’s been consistently wooing me into relationship with Him.

I surrender now my Love! Come!

Till Jesus wills it,
Godspeed!

Gender Neutral and LGBT

I’m not a supporter of this by any means however what with the news going on and on about it, and now that Bruce Jenner has “changed” his sexual orientation, a thought struck me. Some men that I’ve known have gotten in touch with their feminine side (not that they changed their identity mind you,) but they just enjoyed being around women. Papa was one and he often talked about being gender neutral in Christ, a bond and spirit that goes beyond the normal way of looking at genders. David and Jonathan’s love for each other, for example, was more then the love of women. They weren’t homosexuals, but rather their bond went even deeper than that.

This goes so much deeper then what we know, and while I’m having trouble explaining myself, Heaven help me because I have to try. Bruce, who was/is born as a man was feeling lost as to his identity, and was brainwashed and stripped of happiness and contentment. So in order to find an identity he decides he will be a woman instead. What’s wrong with this picture or what else is going on? I think the LGBT community believes that it doesn’t matter who you’re with as long as you are happy, but that they are looking for something even more than that. They are looking for an identity to call their own. Unfortunately something happened to their identity and they are looking for a bond that goes much deeper then what we see.

Till Jesus wills it,
Godspeed!
