Vacuum

This word has a distinct definition. As a verb, to clean with a vacuum cleaner.

As describing this somewhat quirky  word , a friend and I were talking about how we can use vacuums to clean up our lives for GOD.  It’s never easy to run this tool, especially when others are not bothering with whats in disarray in their house.  I’ve not wanted in so many incidences to clean up my appearance , it’s so much easier to put on a pair of jeans and a t-shirt , rather than be lady like with one of those flowing satin blouses that look so feminine, telling myself clean up your act lady, let GOD make whats old new again.

1 John 1:9

If we confess our sins, HE is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Cleansing ourselves from evil , GOD is faithful in saving us from all daily dirty dealings . In confessing, we are forgiven of sins all in one good swipe. There is a vacuuming going on with little knowledge on our part of a great power at work . In comparing isn’t this actually how a vacuum works?  Clean up the dirt and freshen up for a new day. In the midst of it all there HE is, sweet JESUS  . Everything has a new look and the heavenly fragrance has taken over. Vacuuming out all the filth from our lives and being cleansed ultimately changes how clean things are.  How about that!  I’m wondering, have you cleaned up yet ? Does your new vacuum work better today? The vacuuming days are not over buy a long shot, seems cleaning never ends.  A funny thought just came to mind, you’ve just finished with the last room in the house and in comes the dog and kids, man it’s a daily thing, more cleaning to do, just like our own soul house , right?

What do you get, from what you’ve been given?

What do you get, from what you’ve been given?

Such a strange thought, yet interesting , especially if you’re trying to be a better person.

Colossians 4:5-6

Be wise in the ways you act toward those who are outside ( the Christian faith). Make the most of your opportunities. Everything you say should be kind and well thought out so that you know how to answer everyone.

From this scripture it’s a fact that JESUS is our example of being wise in how to treat others. Great opportunities with experience of respect and well thought out responses in showing loving-kindness .    In watching others , inevitably we’ll  be disappointed in time, we are all discomfited by others behavior on and off.

Have you ever been around people who speak out of turn , trying to carry the conversation to meet their needs?  The meer idea of kindness seems ridiculous to the out spoken. Usually the so-called well thought out ideas of these individuals within the conversation don’t have much credence .  They find being right is being the one who has the last to say, and having had the longest to say it.  In this example where is the surrender, does GOD get to be the focus?  Are we allowing HIM into our lives so to answer others with the right spiritual thing?  What do you get from what you’ve been given?

It’s not what we’ve been given, it’s what are you going to do with what you’ve been given.

JESUS just for today,  to the best of my ability I’m going to be a top person for YOU. I’m going to look beyond the borders and coasts that YOU have broaden for me. Live out loud with a followers voice , sing unto YOU with a brassy noise so to declare , I am the righteousness of GOD in CHRIST because of JESUS.  To be this top person is knowing the praise belongs to YOU FATHER, then I know what to do with what I’ve   been given.

HUNGER and THIRST

I  was thinking about how hungry I am. So hungry I’d probably eat what was there for the taking, not to feel the hunger pains. My stomach was announcing to the world, if you don’t eat now I’ll broadcast what’s going on, we all know what that means.

Also, with the hunger comes a tremendous thirst. When you’re hungry you’ve got to have something to quench that need .  Sometimes if we don’t eat or get something to drink, the body starts to tremble, it’s like being on shaky ground. We need to be filled. All this outside trouble with eating comes from within. What’s the struggle ?  This food, drink and outside things I’m talking about, it doesn’t come from a glass or bottle, nor does it say fresh fish or display a date on it.  It comes from the deepest part of self. Some days, just speaking of it makes me so emotional I start to cry. We need to be fed! It’s the thirst and hunger inside that never goes away, we need nourishment. Do you know what I’m talking about, it’s JESUS!

Communing with HIM helps to remember what JESUS did for us. How HE stepped up to the plate and said, I AM, HE, the one you are looking for. And did you know when JESUS spoke, all 300 to 500 Romans fell to the ground?  I thirst for that kind of love. I want to feed on HIS example on how HE treats people. This type of food and drink is spiritually injected when you know the love of GOD. This love GOD has for HIS SON JESUS, teaches how to love. This is Grace !

When reading the word, your thirst goes away and every time you read and turn  a page the hunger that you’re searching , it’s found. Words like, MY grace is sufficient for you. Or he who believes in ME shall never die. And one of the greatest, John 3:16,  For GOD so loved the world, that HE gave HIS only begotten SON, that whosoever believeth in HIM shall not parish but have everlasting life. Rom. 5:8

 Can you imagine, its extremely hard to imagine this scenario ?  GOD all-knowing, all-powerful, orchestrated with HIS SON, JESUS, what needed to be done to save the world and this sort of timing , heavens timing , concluded the answer to man’s fate.

 Come along with me , lets read GODs masterpiece together, be fed and no longer thirst.

JESUS

JESUS, for today can I just thank YOU for breathing living in love and favored by the FATHER ?

Just for this moment, can I be still and listen to what the will of GOD is for me ? Can I in life now, find the time to reflect and know HE IS GOD ?

Is it possible for the light of THE MOST HIGH GOD to shine on me when I don’t see it ? Will I know of the power of JESUS in me when I need it the most ? How is it the CREATOR of this massive universe loves me ? Do the stars shine for me every night ? Can I educate myself enough to know what our PERFECT GOD, FATHER ABOVE ALL  wants for me and mine ? Would I be able to express what HIS SON JESUS did for me when in the darkest hours appear ? Will the gentle misty night come with news of JESUS without a threat of the enemy consuming my thoughts, actions, being ? How is it we stay on the straight path when all seems to be falling into the pit of life, and have sinned ?  Is it JESUS ? Where does this powerful love hit us, in our hearts, souls, inner spirit, or is it everywhere when it takes us to peace ? Do I get to see JESUS eyes looking at me, like when HE looked at Simeon after carrying the cross ? Does my heart go with me to heaven to tell JESUS how much I love HIM, THE FATHER and THE HOLY SPIRIT ?  Will I get the pleasure of speaking YOUR NAME to thousands here, ever ? What’s YOUR most important need for me to do for YOU ? Do you want to build a castle with me and we can adore YOUR FATHER together  with songs never heard before ? Is the universe going to rise up in splendor with us at  end time and bring homage to the KING of KINGs ? Do we get to eat at the table with YOU , have our favorite foods together, or will it be something I’ve never tasted before ?  Can I drink wine with YOU JESUS, like at the Wedding at Cana in Galilee, as we slip away into long conversations in eternity ? Do YOU think we will swim in the living waters in Heaven daily ? How do we dance on the streets of gold, with harps, violins, or maybe electric guitars ? Do we get to sing with a voice not known by man here on earth, there in Heaven ? Can angels and lions play piano at YOUR dinner parties ? Is the address, Unity 777 Trillion Court Heavens Way, The Eternal City where we will experience the concert of everlasting contentment ?  And who’s to say, I’m a hero in Heaven and I get to hold the gold sword to protect YOU my KING ? If prayers are answered , will our families be together at the throne of  GOD so to share everlasting love, because of YOUR SON, JESUS CHRIST, KING ABOVE ALL, REIGNING MAJESTY, THE GREAT HEALER, LORD OF LORDs, and SAVIOR ?  And if that’s so , do we ride ship less into the galaxy of stars because of YOUR promises ?

And my last question for now, do I get to love you forever like you love us ?  As a believer, undeniably, all are a yes, they are a given when you love HIM,  like HE first loved us.

See YOU soon with love to Heaven and back,                                               One of YOUR Daughters

ps ,    Look into the eyes of a child of GOD, and see HIM looking back at you …

Lilacs of Love

Have you ever put your nose in a bunch of lilacs before?  If you haven’t  you might make an effort to do just that. My prediction is, you will be lingering for some time faceless to the public.

Understanding the glory of GOD is phenomenal. HE gives and gives and gives again. I was picking a bouquet of lilacs one day when the fragrance was so empowering that I couldn’t  keep my face out to the flowers. I could feel GOD’s goodness drawing me into the aroma of HIS love.  From that day on lilacs have been my favorite flower. Every time I get a bouquet of them the pleasant smell has to be like heavens host, and GOD is sending me HIS  p.s. of love in the scent of lilacs.

At this very moment I realize that I have always had GOD’s fragrance in me. As a child I had a hiding place that was hedges and hedges full of lilacs. The fragrance kept me in this beautiful safe place.  I was forever at peace with this gorgeous aroma of heaven. Thank you GOD!   YOU take my breath away. YOU’ve been loving on me since I was a child , actually  long before and YOU have never stopped. No wonder lilacs are my favorite. YOU blessed me with heavens scent and I’m living Heavens fragrance of YOUR love.

Don’t miss out on stopping and smelling the lilacs, you deserve a field of purple vision, which by the way is royalty in view.

 

This is dedicated to JESUS……

Gifts to you for the taking

Gifts to you for the taking.

How great is your day? It’s morning and GOD is in the house.

Little whispers of children’s voices are floating in the air.

Morning brings joyous calming to a peaceful heart, when like the ripples on a lake from a tiny chick catching up to her momma.

In my grand daughters laugher I feel soft kisses on my heart there is where all memories are stored.

Do you remember how sweet it was when you woke as a child with a clear head, nothing to do but play all day? That’s the peace of GOD , HE is child like always in our lives.

On a mountain top you see clarity every where, trees swaying to a song of someone singing gospel on a boat dock. You can hear HIS voice in the distance telling you it’s alright.

The day you were born the awesome Power of your CREATOR has kissed you into life. Have I remembered as I’ve grown how blessed I am because of HIS grace ?

See the Majesty when you hear the park filled with people laughing sharing at a family reunion.

It tugs gently at me to feel HIS ALMIGHTY HAND at work that gives HIS children peace of mind in a blissful moment of HIS love for us.

Ocean hearing is like nothing else. The instant you breathe the air something calming happens . Wanna swim with me, is what I hear. HE is always inviting you to come into HIS arms to rest in HIS breath of glory.

Can you see peace? Can you gaze at grace? Is knowledge of powerlessness caressing your mind. Have you embraced the love yet?

There is nothing in life that has given soothed warming heart pleasures then the unmerited favor of GOD.

When the surrender of all who you are melts with ease over your existence, no other known peace is found on the planet. GOD!

Given to you , from HIM, the grace which is JESUS, to walk in utter heart, mind and soul wonderment of heavens breath is the gift ! There is nothing you have to be concerned about.

The child in me comes alive again which is HIS words, be child like ! Know that I AM GOD ! HIS words to me.

HE favored you with angel wings over your life, sending calming ocean waves, breath taking children’s laugher, smiling family kisses, mountain visions with clarity of HIS great OMNIPOTENCE.

This is our CREATOR , our living , loving GOD, our peace of mind. Our surrender of life to the UTMOST EVERYTHING.

Why don’t you come along HE has a castle waiting for you, paved with streets of gold. HIS love for you is immeasurably , wonderfully wonderful. Come swim in the living waters daily , HE is there, waiting on the front porch calling your sweet name.

To my grandchildren, Allie Drew, Riley Ella, their loving parents, Jessie and Joe, Aunt B. and the future grand babies to come.

Thank you FATHER, YOUR love takes my breath away!!!!!!!

Who is JESUS

Who is JESUS

JESUS is the son of GOD, in Matthew 4:1 JESUS is being tempted by the devil. JESUS had fasted for 40 days and 40 nights , He was really hungry. The devil says, if you are the son of GOD tell the stones to become bread. I love what JESUS says. JESUS answers, it is written man shall not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of GOD.

The devil tempted Him again, he takes Him to the holy city and stands in the highest point of the temple and says, if you are the son of GOD throw yourself down, for it is written He will command His angels concerning you and they will lift you up in their hands so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

JESUS answers , its also written do not put the Lord your GOD to the test.

Then again the devil took Him to a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor, all this I will give you he said if you bow down and worship me. JESUS said to him away from ME satan for it is written worship the Lord your GOD and serve him only.The devil left and the angels came to attend Him.

This is such a beautiful passage in the bible because it shows you that JESUS is GOD and was human. He was showing us we don’t have to be afraid, we have been saved and nothing can hurt us. Greater is HE that is in you then is in the earth.

Reading this over and over helped me to see my humanism. I want to be able to stand my ground and be all I can in any situation. To be a good person, a top person, but there is no way this can be. The only perfect person was JESUS. He was, is and ever shall be perfect, thank heaven for that.

How is it that I think in life’s ups and downs that I can be anything other then I am.

Scripture shows right thinking makes for right living a quote from Pastor Joseph Prince. Praying over a situation that can’t be resolved is the way to peace. When in fact no one can control anything or anyone, once set in motion its done. Struggling to achieve the final say, will eventually stop you in your tracks. You mind and body can only work so hard. You’ll have health issues, possibly fatal if not caught in time.

Thank YOU FATHER for showing me the way to peace, the way to rest, the way to live and love so not to be a prisoner of self. The mind is a terrible place to be for any length of time. Rescue yourself by trusting in someone greater then you, this is the GREAT , I AM.

The still small voice says , the righteous will be fed.

Sight

So, we can see because we have sight, Right? There’s not a day that goes by that my sight doesn’t give me a morning sun rise and an evening sun set. Ocean waves to watch, or beautiful smiles from my grand daughters and loving looks from my family that make my day. I’m so grateful! There is a different kind of sight other then seeing  , one that comes from faith. If you are having trouble grasping this, just know that if others have it you will too in time  if you want it.

Sight, an instance of visual perception.  Anything that is seen.

GOD gave sight to the blind . The man knew he would see again because he had faith in JESUS, he had a heart with sight . He knew that his faith would restore his sight like that of the boy he once was.

I was thinking on a message of inner sight. I was swimming and happened to look out the window when I saw what seemed to be hundreds of birds, birds on a wire.  I turned away and then there were maybe 20, then 10 then 1.  The thought that came to mind was you are never alone, GOD is always there even when the others are gone.  JESUS said, I will never leave you nor forsake you, never not ever.  Deuteronomy 31:8

Sight comes in different ways if we are open . We don’t have to see to have 20/20 vision.

Being overwhelmed with grace that comes even when we don’t deserve it or know about it till it’s right before us, thats 20/20 vision.   Sight has vision of untold measures to be experienced .    When restored we will be able to see when darkness surrounds us. JESUS promised us that HE will never leave us, nor forsake us  never not ever.

I love JESUS vision.
