Captivated By Love

Ladies!!! Oh an interesting cause to check out for sure in this video here that Sam Samy shares:

I find it interesting that the lion wants to stay where it finds love in relationship rather than step out into the world all alone. As you know, Sam, a person is never alone because Jesus is always with us as His people of faith!!! Oh that just makes me smile!!! As you also know, Sam, Father created us for relationship!!! I am reminded that it is always good news wherever He opens and closes doors in our lives to put us in the divine place for us to be together with divine purpose with Him working in us as His people of faith!!! 🙂 Lots to ponder about this video!!! I am reminded of this song here about being a new creation in faith in Jesus and the specialness of His love:

Thank you for the pondering again today, Sam!!! I’m sharing it!!!

Lured by Light

Good pondering here in this video, Sam Samy!!!

Thank you for sharing this!!! It speaks to me and I will share it with my lady friends who journey my road of purpose with me to always be careful about what we let lure us because the devil disguises himself as an angel of light!!! Our defense is to stay close to Jesus and pray, pray, pray always!!! I like this song here about protection found in Jesus

Drawn Divinely

This Sam Samy video speaks volumes here!!!
Oh when you have a man in your life, his heart is your first priority, dear ladies of mine!!! It is good when the man makes himself very attractive, alluring and hard to resist in manly ways, too!!! Tell him what you find attractive for him to implement!!! Ask him what would be attractive to him for you to do, too!!!

The Champ In You

Well, our Father is with us and blessing us with the gift of a brand new day filled full of His grace to enable us to live and move and have our being again today and His grace will be what leads us through this day in triumphant procession as we keep our eyes fixed on Him!!! Oh He is a razzle-dazzle God who flat out just boggles our minds with the greatness of Him who puts the breathe in our lungs and the smiles upon our faces!!! He is without question the Champion of life and so there is no contest when it comes to letting Him be the greatest in life!!! Amen???

Holy SPirit AS Power.jpg

The good news is that He was a Champion in doing the challenging in life to make it so that we have a blessed life as His royal kingdom family forever!!! He went to the cross for us in the effort to not let the enemy of this world win in our lives and how did He do that??? He conquered life step by step, with prayer and the strength that His Father gave to him to be able to do so. Oh that is what our lives are is a process of keeping taking steps towards the light as Father reveals it to us and oh yes Jesus just like us had times where He sweated out the darkness in prayer. Doesn’t it bless your heart that Jesus gets our hearts?!! It sure does mine!!! His Word tells us of His understanding for us:

“For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are–yet He did not sin.” 

Hebrews 4:15

Jesus was triumphant because He had a Champion of love and grace and power and victory living in Him and so do we, precious saints!!! HOOORRRAAAHHH!!! We can’t do life on our own, but He in us through our faith in Him can as He tells us:

“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” 

Galatians 2:20

Faith is Having COurage

Jesus has always been sooo encouraging to us as His people in telling us how much we need Him and that “apart from Him, we can do nothing.” Oh He is the vine and we are the branches and as we stay connected to Him in prayer and in focusing on His written Word, hearing His small still voice within us just as He did on earth in listening to His Father in heaven, we too shall be guided and empowered from on high for “it is God who works in us to will and act according to His purpose.”(Philippians 2:13)

So in pondering all of this, we can rest in grace that we are sufficient to live life today because the Champion of Life Jesus lives in us, never to leave us nor forsake us!!! (Hebrews 13:5) Humbled by His holiness and grace and also empowered as champions in all things thru Christ who gives us strength – yep, that is us, dear saints!!! His grace is enough as this song says here. Enjoy life with the King who loves you today, who will be your guide all day through!!! It’s gonna be a heaven on earth day because we are not left alone to conquer life – got the greatest within us, through us and working all around us who can do more than we can even ask or imagine and He has nothing but good plans for us to prosper us and not harm us, to give us hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11)!!! Oh that all just makes me smile!!! Divine sisterly love to you wherever you are today!!! Father loves us perfectly forever because we believe in Him as our Savior!!! That’s enough to make us champions in His eyes and Him in us will help us have best life – the heavenly life on earth!!! 🙂 YYYIIIPPPEEE!!! BLESSED WE ARE WITH JESUS WITH US!!!

“You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you shall be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Acts 1:8

Forever Encouragement

One of the wonderful attributes of our Father for us as His kingdom saints is that we be encouraged in this life!!! I pray this prayer for you today along with myself and I find the reflection upon the words of great encouragement to my heart how much our Father loves and cares for us:

“May our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father, who loved us and by His grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.”

2 Thessalonians 2:16-17

As I reflect upon these words, Father reveals these thoughts to me:

  • God loves us!!!
  • God Himself is able to encourage His people and give them hope and inspiration.
  • He gave us His grace that our hearts be forever encouraged, free from discouragement from the enemy of divine life.
  • He gave us grace that our hearts would have good hope in His grace, love, power and eternal victory for us.
  • His heart is not only that we be encouraged, but that we be strengthened to carry out every good deed and in the sharing of His Word.

“His eyes roam throughout the earth to strengthen those who are fully committed to Him.”

2 Chronicles 16:9

As we step out from a heart committed to Him in our faith of His grace as sufficient for us, we will be given power – His strength in Him to carry out good deeds and share His Word to be His encouragement to those around us.”As it is written, it is “Not by might nor by power, but by His Spirit” that we do so victoriously!!! By His Spirit we can encourage others as He has encouraged us!!! He often works thru others to be His encouragement!!! The enemy of this world comes only to steal, kill and destroy, but our Father said He came that we would have life and have it to the full. Father is our forever rescue from the enemy and as times are right, He either empowers His people to be strengthened to fight the enemy in their purpose here in life, or He takes us home with heaven’s plans for us there and to be safe from the enemy of life as He tells us in His Word:

“The righteous perish, and no one takes it to heart; the devout are taken away, and no one understands that the righteous are taken away to be spared from evil. Those who walk uprightly enter into peace; they find rest as they lie in death.”

Isaiah 57:1-2

The Apostle Paul knew the longing to depart from earth to be with the Father, however, the Father inspired His heart that it was best for Him to stay on earth. Oh and his life still had much purpose!!! I have faith today because he followed Father’s heart for Him!!! The Apostle Paul wrote about it:

“If I am to go on living in the body, this will mean fruitful labor to me. Yet what shall I choose? I do not know! I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far; but it is more necessary for you that I remain in the body. Convinced of this, I know that I will remain, and I will continue with all of you for your progress and joy in the faith so that through my being with you again your boasting in Christ Jesus will abound on account of me.”

Philippians 1:22-26

I am convinced that our Father gives us the encouragement and will to live on in earthly life or pass from earth as He has divine purpose for us doing so. One of His saints, Elijah, was simply picked up in a chariot and transported to heaven fully alive (Genesis 5:21-24)!!! Now how amazing of a rescue to heavenly life is that!!! His heart for us as His people is this:

“For I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a good future.”

Jeremiah 29:11

“All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”

Psalm 139:16

“When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all. He keeps all his bones; not one of them is broken.”

Psalm 34:17-20

Oh if Father has called you to life today, you are where you are for divine purpose, dear one!!! Father will keep you encouraged to persevere where you are supposed to be!!! Me, too!!! Oh let us catch that Holy Spirit fire and burn within  as this song says here for His perfect plans for us that is never tempting us to do evil, but working where evil shows up to bring only good to His people thru it!!! Let us always follow Jesus and when in the need of encouragement, turn to the Lord who will guide us divinely and always to work divine good in our lives thru all circumstances!!! Our Father promises His people “Never will I leave you nor forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5) Father always has our backs and our good future!!! HOOORRRAAAHHH!!! LET’S GO WHERE HE SENDS US WITH FULLNESS OF HIS JOY!!!

The Fullness of Heaven

Over the past several weeks, I have been sharing from the writings in my soon to be published book “Running Your Road of Purpose.” I will continue to write and share here in the future, but in closing out this book study, I want to encourage each of your hearts in persevering in the running of your very own unique purpose in this life!!!

At your life’s end, may it be said of you that your faith was found in Christ for your eternal salvation (His gift to you), and out of your love for Him as a gift back to Him, that you successfully ran the road of God’s purpose for your life – you persevered!!! WOOOHOOO!!! AWESOME!!! ATTA SAINT!!! Your life was not wasted energy!!! You looked for and used your potential fully – you chose the best!!! As you continue running on your “homeward bound” road, my friend, may the grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.   Remember what we have talked about in this study. An expression from a Hallmark card reads “Be who you are. Do what you love. Make a difference. Change the world.” I echo these thoughts in the context of the following additional thoughts:

Be the special, unique athlete you were created to be – You were created wonderfully and equipped for a beautiful purpose!!!

run-for-the-prize

Do what you love and are good at – God has a plan for your life and He has given you a special passion for the work He prepared in advance for you to do. When you are working in your area of giftedness, you will love what you do, but remember that sometimes in life there will be those diaper changes! 🙂

Make a difference in the lives of people – Often people have improper mindsets about what it takes to make a difference in the world and if they can’t live up to the standard they have set in their own minds, they feel they are ineffective. We should never underestimate the power of a simply spoken word of love or a small, kind gesture, perhaps it will be the very thing that enables someone to see the glimmer of God’s love for them and that love is what they need to give them renewed hope and courage to continue on in their life. We will not know until eternity the full impact that our lives have had on others.   Jesus said in John 5:35 that John the Baptist was a lamp that burned and gave light (he testified to the truth of Jesus – THE light of the world). In Matthew 5:14-16, Jesus says that we are the “light of the world.” He tells us to “let our lights shine before men/women, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” Perhaps the people around you will see some small thing (a flicker of light) about you in the way you live out your life that makes them hunger for Christ in their own life. Little things mean a lot! YOU CAN make a difference in someone’s life.

God's Hands of Light

Change the world for Christ! There is only one YOU! Nobody can impact the world the way you can. If you do not share the gift of YOU with the world, the world will forever miss out!

Worthy Calling

I’m praying and cheering for you!!! I may not have the opportunity to meet you until we get “home” to the place that will be grander than any place we have been before and I want you to know that I look forward to that day.   It will be our “home sweet home” with God and each other!!! How exciting it will be!!! Psalm 16:11 says “You (God) have made known to me the path of life; you fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at Your right hand.” Knowing God and His history of blessing His people, I have no doubt that we will all be filled with joy in His presence and partakers in the eternal pleasures that He has planned for us at the end of our path of life. “He will wipe every tear from our eyes. There will be no more death or crying or mourning or pain, for the old order of things will have passed away” (Revelation 21:4).   Psalm 84:10 says “Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere.”  An excellent book that has me excited about our life after this life is called “Heaven” by Randy Alcorn.   With Randy’s reflection and what God has told us in His Word about heaven, I am sure when we all cross over the finish line into eternity, all of us will be in agreement that “there is no place like our eternal home!”

Heaven

Kingdom of Heaven in You

The Spirit and the bride say “Come!” And let him/her who hears say “Come!” Whoever is thirsty, let him/her come; and whoever wishes, let him/her take the free gift of the water of life” (Revelation 22:17).  

holy-spirit-leaks

“Amen.” “Come, Lord Jesus.” I close with this song here that welcomes Jesus’ full big picture presence and kingdom ushered in – in all it’s full glorious reality with us where the lion will be at peace with the lamb!!!
