Finally, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me – put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. Philippians 4:8-9

Rejoice! For it is the Father's will, to give us the Kingdom....





This morning as I turned on my computer and was faced, as usual, with the never ending news around the world...the one announcement that caught my eye, was that of Christians in Iraq being killed for their faith.
This news is nothing new...lives of Father's precious ones are being snuffed out all over the world...
My own heart is grieved at the apathy of my feeling any deep conscious and experiential identification with their horrific and solemn sacrifice...
I've never felt such helpless-ness like this before...almost a vulnerable hypocrisy,  exposed to waves washing me to a transparency, leaving me uneasy in my comfortable-ness as a Christian...
Lord...I'm ashamed of my total lack of comprehension...true compassion and intercession on my brethren's behalf...my flesh knows nothing of the reality of such suffering...
I am obviously callous, indifferent, apathetic and pathetic concerning the complete surrender of my life to your interceding presence in me....
I confess to the morbidity of my confession...to the empty and clueless vessel that I am...
Help me....precious and wonderful Savior....Help me...
Explode within my heart..."Let there be Light"....move upon the voidness of my soul, Breath of God, Blessed Holy Spirit Word.
Let me kneel beside your interceding heart and "KNOW" with every fiber of my being,  what great Love has come to deliver us from this sinful and cruel world,  in total victory and promise of your eternal keeping, unto that Day...
Day Star rise within me,  Shine in the darkness...an exceeding great Light...
You are Father, Lord, blessed and eternal Holy Spirit...my God...allowed be Your Name...I surrender to your kingdom...let it rule in me, in the power of your might, by your Word and your Holy Spirit...even according to your will and good pleasure...let it be done...
Let the love of the brethren be your banner over me with love.
Not just in word or deed...but in the strength of your faith, your wisdom, your fellowship...
Let me truly embrace those who face the reality of persecution by those who do not know the meaning of Love...who are zealous without knowledge...
They are just flesh and blood...tools of a more cruel and dark force of unseen principalities and powers that would destroy God's kingdom and his host's...
Fit me for battle Lord...in heart, in soul and in mind...
For yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever...Amen

Sweet (((Joy))),

I have also been going through thoughts of being a lukewarm Christian. Knowing that He will spew the lukewarm out of His mouth on that day...

Amen to your prayer, dear one!!!

Lord, precious Abba, help me stop being lukewarm! Clothe me with Your Holy Light that continues forever burning white hot for You...

Sending much love to you forever & ever in our beloved Savior,

ooly!

Hello sweetheart; Thank you for the comment...I'm finding that what the Holy Spirit is speaking to one...He is very likely to be speaking to all...He is gathering us unto Himself in a way that will cause us to be more and more dependent upon him, in all areas of our life...much love to you and your dear family...praying that your husband is surrounded by Father's ministering angels...always and always.....jOy

É maravilhoso quando encontramos alguem que demonstra ter um coração tão sensível ao amor de Jesus por nós.Deus continue te abençoando e permitindo que escrevas cada dia mais, pois tudo que fazemos é para Honra e Glória do Pai. Fique na Paz com Jesus.
