Planting Seeds for Divine Life

It’s summertime here in Idaho and I just love seeing life thrive!!! It is everywhere that I look around. All the trees are growing and bearing fruit, flowers are blooming, gardens are bringing forth produce and I am amazed that all of these things began with a small seed planted into the dirt that along with water and the light of sunshine have produced such divine works of art by our Creator!!! As I ponder this today, Father speaks to my heart thru this Bible verse here:

“The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. He who loves his life loses it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it to life eternal. If anyone serves Me, he must follow Me, and where I am, there My servant will be also; if anyone serves Me, the Father will honor him.” 

John 12:24-26

Seed in Ground

When you go into a store in the beginning of spring after the cold winter season, you see little packages containing seeds that must be pressed down, buried, put out of sight, then watered and given light and over time, those pressed down, buried seeds put out of sight have produced great beauty that glorifies our Creator and produces that which brings blessing to the people of the earth.

Childs Seeds

Jesus likens this to our lives. Each one of us are as seeds capable of growing into uniquely beautiful creations that bring glory to our Father and that bless others.

Sunflower Seeds

In order for our Father to be glorified and in order for others to see the blessing of divine fruit produced thru us, though, there are seeds of sin that must be pressed down, buried from sight, watered with our Father’s living waters and warmed by His sunlight to be anything but a dead seed that is unfruitful in its left unattended state. For each of us, that sin that Father wants to bury and in it’s place grow or produce what is of beauty and fruitfulness is different from each other and He can guide us each individually as to what that is. What is it for you, sweet saint??? I ask myself the same question and I love the visual of taking whatever that sin is and with our Father’s help, seeing it buried, put out of sight – not visible any more, having it watered by His living waters and warmed by His loving sunlight to see our lives produce forth what is of blessing to Father and others and oh how wonderful to think of ourselves as being our best potential of bringing forth greatness thru our lives in this life for heaven!!! HOOORRRAAAHHH!!! LET’S GO FOR IT, SAINTS!!! 🙂

Seeds of Person Growing

To love our lives enough to hate our lives of sin is not what earns us heaven because our faith in Christ Jesus’ work of beauty on the cross has forever rescued us and given us a place in His heavenly kingdom, but we get to live life our best here and Father’s promise is that if we lose our lives on this earth for Him, we will keep all of what our lives produce in heaven in heavenly rewards!!! As Father says:

“God is not unjust; He will not forget your hard work and the love that you show Him as you help His people and continue to help them.”

Hebrews 6:10

“Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with me, to render to every man according to what he has done.”

Revelation 22:12

God Crowning Saint

The fields are ripe for harvest – the potential of the dirt fields within us each are such that they can produce a tremendous harvest of blessing!!! What can we each willingly bury and look to our Father to help raise up blessing in its place??? Proud of ya’s for praying about it with me praying about it, too!!!

“We can do all things thru Christ who gives us strength.”

Philippians 4:13

Empowered by Grace

Jesus said: “I am the vine, you are the branches, apart from me you can do nothing. If you abide in Me and I in you, together we will bear much fruit.”

John 15:5

Loaded Fig Tree

Jesus’ precious grace is sufficient for us to bury what we want to!!! His grace is sufficient to smile upon us wherever we are at in life!!! His grace is sufficient to work in us to will and act according to His purpose as we yield the seeds within us to Him for divine purposes!!! His grace changes us divinely as this song says here!!! How exciting to be the masterpiece of our Father’s work happening in us!!!  Let us shake with the divine changes that take place within us with Father’s Spirit watering us with living waters and moving us to the amazing!!!

Watering Flowers

Much love to you, precious saints!!! Jesus understands us, does not condemn us and also sees us with tremendous divine ability to do amazing things to bring heaven’s harvest to earth as we look to Him to provide the divine to take place within us, thru us and all around us!!! I’m a gal going in being buried in the depths of heart and trusting Father to work at growing to produce the heavenly from within me with ya!!! WOOOHOOO!!! How exciting to see the heavenly of Father working in us popping up wherever we are planted!!! We are His beautiful garden and He is caring for us perfectly!!! Blessed are we to be His fearfully and wonderfully made works!!! We can know that full well and oh that just makes me smile!!! 🙂

Soaring in Waiting Faith

I hope your day is going awesome wherever you are, sweet saints!!! Let us keep the faith in all circumstances as we wait upon our Father of miracles because WOOOHOOO nothing is impossible with Jesus for us kingdom kids as this songs says here:

Two Wings

As the eagle depends on our Father to soar, so shall we soar in divine life victory as we look to Father!!! He has given us not a spirit of fear, only the power of His love at work for us and His strength will be more than enough to get us to divine life always!!! His divine plans takes time sometimes to bring about, but as we keep patient in faith, we see the divine in perfect timing – not too soon and not to late for it to be divinely perfect!!! HOOORRRAAAHHH!!! YOU KNOW HOW TO BRING US DIVINE LIFE JUST RIGHT, JESUS!!! PRAISE YOU!!!

Eagle in Flight

Here are some thoughts for us all to ponder in the waiting for divine life happening:

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.

Psalm 32:8

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths.”

Proverbs 3:5-6

“If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small.”

Proverbs 24:10

“But those who wait on the Lord, shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles. They shall run and not be weary. They shall walk and not faint.”

Isaiah 40:31

Eagle and Sunlight

Oh no need to faint while waiting on the Lord, dear ones, for He is faithful to see us thru as we pray, commit our plans to Him and wait on Him to act in every way we need Him to!!! Waiting on Him to enable us is key to strength and soaring strong in all of divine life, so let us keep trusting in Father’s perfect timing in whatever circumstance we have committed to Him to help with in life!!! Proud of you for doing so, precious family of faith!!! I’m keeping trusting in Jesus for soaring divine life for all my days with ya’s!!! He who loves us and has called us to our life of purpose is faithful to see us thru as more than conquerors in all things!!! YYYEEESSS!!! VICTORY DANCING IS ALWAYS SURE WITH JESUS!!! HE KNOWS JUST THE RIGHT TIMING FOR EVERY STEP!!! DIVINELY CHA, CHA, CHA WITH JESUS LEADING FOR THE DIVINE DANCE THRU LIFE!!! 🙂

A Tiger in Your Tank

Fill ‘er up, please!!! Oh that is a phrase I heard spoken to gas station attendants often as a little girl when I was with my parents in their car out of fuel. It is something that in some places you still hear today depending on if the law allows a person to fill their own fuel tank or if a hired hand is requested to do so. That ole E for empty is not something you like to see when you are out on a roadway with a long ways to go to the next city!!! I remember a time when I was traveling with others to an event that put us on the road for home late into the night and as we were riding along, the driver said “I should have filled up with gas before we left. Oh I hope the gas station in the next town has pumps working at 3:00am in the morning!!!” YIKES I SAID TO MYSELF!!! PRAYER TO JESUS WAS MY RESPONSE!!! I was praying and we were driving on fumes I am sure as we pulled into the station. The next question was will they take a credit card and sure enough, they did and we were able to get the empty tank filled up and we made it home to see the sun rise and the birds singing!!! NOW THAT WAS A BEAUTIFUL SIGHT TO SEE FOR SURE FROM HOME AND NOT STRANDED OUT ON THE ROADWAY!!! It was not the first time of being delivered thru prayer to Jesus, either!!! PRAISE JESUS!!! 🙂

As I ponder this memory, Father puts it upon my heart that every person has a fuel tank that can be empty and in need of a “fill up.” In fact, each one has a couple – one being the stomach that can at times seem like a bottomless pit when real empty or hungry physically and the second is the human heart and our Father tells us in His Word it is always in a state of needing divine spiritual fuel due to being empty with these voids:

  • It desires unfailing love
  • It is lonely
  • It is fearful
  • It has guilt

The antidote to all of these ill-feeling conditions is Jesus!!! He is the One who:

  • Loves us thru our faith in Him perfectly
  • Fills our voids or emptiness, our spiritual hunger
  • Gives us peace that transcends all understanding
  • Makes us brave and strong in Him
  • Forgives us for sin, extending us unconditional love and grace thru faith in His perfect performance on the cross to give us victory from Satan our accuser who lies to us continually to empty our heart tank!!!

Let me ask you today as I ask myself, dear saint…how is your heart today??? Whatever our need, let us cast our cares on our Father, for He cares for us!!! He has many ways of providing just what we need as we turn to Him and trust in Him. I am doing divinely well today, but I appreciate the message of this song here that speaks of our need to always turn to Jesus when we need help filling the hole in our hearts and being reminded of who we are in Christ Jesus’ love and powerful energy!!!  Let us look to Him to fill our hearts and pour out of His Spirit’s love to keep telling others of the source of their being filled with the fruit of Jesus’ Spirit within them thru faith, too. If someone has a sickness of heart, would we not want to help them??? Even beyond that, we can save them from death, giving them eternal life and all the fullness of the glorious riches of Christ’s love in His kingdom!!! All hearts need the good news of Jesus and Jesus can work thru anyone to help another!!! Let us as our Father tells us:

“…As I have loved you, so love one another.” (John 13:34)

How can you help add divine fuel to fill a heart needing filled up with Jesus where you are today??? Father has us where we are for divine reasons – “to help fill up” others with the good news that Jesus longs to pour into every heart to get them over the road of life to home safely and happy with the fullness of blessings in Him!!! 🙂 Happy travels to ya wherever you are!!! Let us seek not to leave those stranded with an empty heart tank that we see along our life’s way!!! All need the divine filling of Jesus as abundant heart fuel to keep going!!! When our hearts are full of Jesus, our heart motors are gonna be roaring for the going for Jesus with divine performance and energy!!! Have you ever heard the phrase of having a”tiger in your tank!!!” 🙂 Exxon used it as a corporate logo in years past.

Tiger in Your Tank

Tiger Tail out of Tank

Jesus is even greater than a tiger in yer tank; He just makes ya smile – He puts the smile in tigers, too!!! 🙂 See:

Happy Motoring

Making regular pit stops of quiet time with Jesus for refueling and He’ll keep us fueled up for moving with divine performance and energy along the road to our eternal destiny for sure!!! So let us be filled with Jesus and go rescue those stranded with empty tanks along the way of life!!! We can give them the premium fuel – the supreme fuel of Jesus!!! WOOOHOOO!!! ANOTHER WAY TO SAY THIS IS “GO GET ‘EM TIGER!!!” 🙂 ROARING OUT FOR JESUS WITH YA’S AND HAPPY MOTORING IN DOING SO!!!

 

Divinely Well-Watered

“The LORD will guide you always; He will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.”

Isaiah 58:11

YYYEEESSS!!! Picture this: Have you ever been in a hot dry desert place and found a cool sheltered spot with an ice-filled glass of cold water to quench your thirst??? If so, then you know what I’m talking about when I say that is how Jesus makes a difference in our lives as we look to Him to guide us, meet our needs and give us strength to keep going for divine life when the enemy of this world wants to leave ya sun-scorched!!! As the Apostle Paul in Biblical times understood well – Jesus saves and he also said “My God will supply all your needs.” (Philippians 4:19) As Jesus was faithful in yesterdays, He still is today and He will be in all our tomorrows to give us what we need as we look to Him and step out and shout out with excitement into life in faith as this song says here.  One of the ways that He meets our needs is through Him flowing into and thru each other!!! We are each one here on purpose with each other, dear family and breathing in His grace to us each that is sufficient for forever divine victory life with Him wherever He takes us!!! WOOOHOOO!!! IT’S GOING TO BE FUN!!! YAY!!! FOREVER BLESSED FAMILY TOGETHER WE ARE AND NOTHING CAN SEPARATE US FROM HIS LOVE!!! OH THE DIVINE FOREVER VICTORY LIFE JESUS BRINGS TO US TRULY IS OUR GIFT OF REFRESHING AAAHHH THAT IS ALWAYS HEAVENLY GOOD AND DIVINE PERSPECTIVE IN OUR LIVES THAT LEAVES US ALWAYS IN AWE AND PRAISE OF HIM!!! He leads us step by step to it and when we finally see it – WOW!!! IT’S AWESOME TO US!!! Trusting in Him and waiting on His timing and divine ways is key to our peace and joy!!! All the glorious riches of heaven’s fountains of victory are truly forever ours as kids of faith, so let’s keep the faith together!!!

Need guidance in something in life??? Got a need you are feeling the heat of??? Need strength in some way??? Claim the promise of our Father that as you seek Him, He will be found by you and you will end up as He says,  like a “well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.” Jesus always has a way of working all things out for the good of those who are called according to His purpose and conforming us to His wonderful image!!! (Romans 8:28-29) Life is always an exciting divine learning experience as we journey along in the divine adventures of He who loves us and delights in us looking to Him and saying “Abba, Father!!!” His fountains of victory – it is always a divine opportunity to see His faithful Holy Spirit spring forth in us all as kingdom family, thru us all and all around us all, bringing the refreshing living waters of Heaven flowing into our lives on this earth!!! OH JESUS, HE IS SOOO SMART BEYOND US AND BECKONS US EACH ONE TO TRUST HIM!!!  I’M A GAL TRUSTING IN HIM FOR THE DIVINE LIFE MOVING FORWARD FOR US ALL WITH YA’S!!! FOREVER BLESSED ARE WE!!! I CAN HARDLY WAIT FOR EACH DIVINE SECOND TO HAPPEN!!! 🙂

Jesus Streams

Grace Content

Good morning, ya’ll wherever you are today!!! It’s a beautiful day here in Idaho where I am and I give thanks to Jesus with you for His gift of life together!!! His grace is amazing to us all every day!!! He has made life in our personal relationship with Him all about our relationship being more important than perfect performance for He knows that as humans on this earth there is no way that anyone can perform perfectly, therefore, He performed perfectly on the cross so that we could have a beautiful love relationship with Him thru our faith in His work to defeat our enemy in this world!!! Now how sweet is He to care about you and me that much!!! Because of faith in Him and His big ole heart of love, our Father tells us this:

“And although you were formerly alienated and hostile in mind, engaged in evil deeds, yet He has now reconciled you in His fleshly body through death, in order to present you before Him holy and blameless and beyond reproach–if indeed you continue in the faith firmly established and steadfast, and not moved away from the hope of the gospel that you have heard which was proclaimed in all creation under heaven of which I, (Paul) was made a minister.”

Colossians 1:21-23

Grace flows into us of faith – how is Father’s grace moving your heart to let it flow out to those around you in life today??? YOU and JESUS team bring the beauty of heaven to earth as YOU step into life to love!!! Sooo proud of you for doing so!!! A coach who understood our Father’s heart once said of his team’s efforts although they did not win every game: “We did a great job and the kids and my life are enriched by it and I will take that!!!” 🙂 Me, too!!! Divine sisterly love to you all as you go thru this day with Jesus with ya!!! I am always blessed by this song here of Father’s amazing love and grace:

Two Hands and Heart.jpg

Father’s Love is Fitting

The understanding of Father’s love and promises is the comfort in all of life situations. As our Father tells us:

“Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.” NIV
“Be happy with those who are happy, and weep with those who weep.” NLT
Romans 12:15

Jesus understands the hearts of all people and guides us in how to love those He puts in our lives. The best thing we can do always is to help others know of God’s love for them in whatever circumstance they are in in life as this song says here.

How can you testify of Father’s love to those in your life where you are today, family of faith??? Perhaps it is in prayer, in words or perhaps it is in actions. I am proud of you for doing so!!!

Shaped By Mercy

It is a divine day everywhere I look today, kingdom family, for I see the work of our Creator – the work of His hands and His intelligent design in all things good all around!!! Oh how true when He tells us “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:9)

Given that, while our Father is all about relationship with us and delights to call us His kids of faith, because of who He is, we as His created should bow our knee to His wisdom and understanding that is so far beyond us!!! Oh truly who of us is the wiser to Him??? As the Apostle Paul understood:

“Who are you, O man, who answers back to God? The thing molded will not say to the molder, “Why did you make me like this,” will it? Romans 9:19

Clay in Potter's Hand

We could also say why did you make my life like this, however, our lives are often the way they are because of our own choices!!! WATCH OUT!!! OH LET’S KEEP OUR EYES FIXED ON JESUS!!! YIKES!!! When we have questions, this is not to say that it is wrong to ask questions of our Father and as we do, our Father will help us to understand what we need to for moving forward in faith. A good prayer to pray is “Father, in regards to this situation in my life, please reveal to me what I need to know and/or do to move forward for divine victory life.” Then as we seek out His answers to us, He promises us “Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the Lord,’ and I will bring you back from captivity.” (Jeremiah 29:13) It just might be that our pursuing Father’s heart for us might deliver someone else from captivity, too!!! WOOOHOOO!!! I love that thought!!!

With You We Are Victorious

While we are saved by grace and not by works, being contrary to seeking our Father, to let questions about God be an excuse for not pursuing life with God and walking forward in faith has a price tag that will only buy us less than divine life so it is best to seek our Father on such things for best life!!! He tells us to “Cast all our cares on Him for He cares for us.” (1 Peter 5:7) Our Father is all that is good!!! God is good all the time and all the time, God is good as this song says here!!! We would not even be able to breathe on our own without His gift of life to us!!! Because a person’s heart may want a particular thing right now and our Father is not providing it yet does not mean that He has turned His back on bringing us good in life. We know from His Word His heart for us:

  • “For I know the plans that I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
  • We also know that “God works all things for the good of those who are called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28)
  • “…the lovingkindness of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear (reverence) Him.” (Psalm 103:17)
  • “For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end–it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.” (Habakkuk 2:3)
  • “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths.” (Proverbs 3:5-6)

In light of these thoughts, what question is on your heart that Father is calling to you to seek Him out about so that you can know what you need to know and proceed forward as you need to step??? I ponder the same question before Father, too!!! As we seek Him, our lives will be shaped by His mercy to us as His kingdom family for sure!!! Let us always wait for it – it will be a divine heavenly revelation in the right timing. Until then, we can act on the light that we have for the step that we are on. It is the best place to be until we have the next step!!! Oh I am a gal always asking my Father lots of questions and listening and watching for His answers, too!!! Why??? Because I have learned that our Father is sooo smart beyond us all and He is all love and powerful beyond all that we see beyond us!!! We can trust in Him to work victory beyond us even when we cannot see what He sees!!!

God Rewards Those Who Seek Him

HOOORRRAAAHHH!!! GO FATHER!!! KEEP BRINGING THE DIVINE!!! WE BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF PRAYER TO YOU WHO IS ALL POWERFUL IN THIS WORLD!!!

Power of Christ

Ya know – it is sure wonderful to have such a divine connection with our Father!!! It makes life heavenly, full of light and exciting to have His always fascinating perspective!!! To us He is as a roaring lion and gentle as a lamb, stronger than a wild ox and He rides forth on a white horse as one called Faithful and True and oh so much more!!! I’m thankful with ya for all that He is!!! He is…ugh…indescribable??? Oh, I know this about Him – God is good all the time and He just makes ya smile and know you are loved!!! 🙂 It’s because He is our God of perfect love!!! LORD HAVE MERCY??? – YEP!!!

God Is Love
