God Defines Me

There is a keeping of faith brothers who dwell together, one runs his course and passes off his baton off to the next runner. I was at a memorial service today and it was such a lovely thing to see a faithful life live and now to be known as he is known.

The biggest lie is that servant-hood is slavery. No, in service comes great joy which reaches deeper than feelings. Joy is shut up in the bones of those whom God has kissed.

Our life kiss back to Him is to tell upon the mountains the wonderful things He has done for us and the things freedom cannot help but express.

Even when nothing is said, light shines through and bears witness of God’s Love.

The plural many-sided God trumps the dull singleness of sin.

A life freed from the grave is worth more than gold. As a brand plucked from the fire is one on fire for the Lord.

All will come to see one soul passionately ablaze for God.

This Love is beyond written description and deepens with Him as a time to maturity for resurrected bodies merge with our souls in the age to come.

The reason beauty is worshiped is that human hearts long for that eternal beauty that crown of life awarded to those who run their race well.

The single lopsidedness and ‘depth’ of sin leads to death, hell and the grave.

Whom a person serves before they die, they shall serve eternally.

I personally know the struggle of the flesh and what it wants daily as Paul said ‘I’ die what I want I overcome by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of my testimony and don’t love my life to death.

What I want is daily nailed to that execution stake, I don’t turn my hand back and away from the plow that the Lord has for me but I press up and onward to the higher calling.

I challenge fellow servants, repent, repent; turn from your evil ways and turn to the God who just longs to love on you.

I guarantee you will be persecuted by forces that seek your elimination. But, greater is He in me than the enemy of this world system.

One repents as a lifestyle, as a life choice.

I refuse the allow labels placed on me to shape me. God defines me, He leads me. He rescues me. I breathe in His name and breath out praises to Him.

Sometimes only I can say ‘help God’ and I am enough and accepted by Him, I accept me. What others think doesn’t rock my world, only Yeshua has my heart rock solid on fire for Him.

The mist ascends the flame of God tests and tries me. The heart is pried open again a physical ache wounds bittersweet.
I’ve been pressed and overcome by You God.

You are so jealous your very Name is something that evokes my inner being. You see the being in me. You are the One who Loves me who ‘gets’ me, who is always there for me.

God my expression can’t be contained. I asked for Your fire to char my bones, Your very flame opens my eyes. As a hatchling opens eyes, the womb of the morning pierces with Your kind gaze.

Saw open the heavens and come down Holy Spirit. Shred my pride, God, break my will, God.

God join You to me, I join myself to you. I am joined at Your hips.

I take your Name.

You break the bow, bend the spear and tell wars to stop the proud drop at your very voice. Your glory will overcome all creatures.

God of Jacob with Your heavy weighty Love so crush me, so melt my heart. So spar with me and win.

-My Jewish Love, God of Israel-

You move my heart, I see the nations rage and yet You the Lord Who sits above the helix of the earth, You God Who made all creation, You God Who echoes peace be still, be not afraid.

Your Voice echoes in the chambers of my soul. I consider the works of your hands, I consider Your awe inspiring effervescent blinding light.

Be still oh my soul, quiet my heart like a weaned child from his mother. Be still, hedge me into your thorny garden. Your locked resting place.

Though the ground gives way, though mountains recycle into the seas Your Foam ascends and upon my heart have you set Your Seal,

Have You so burned my mouth with the coals of purity?

Eritrea: How do we understand the cross?

Dr. Berhane spent 11 months in prison for his Christian faith and work; he watched friends and fellow prisoners led away to execution. But he also saw God’s hand at work as fellow prisoners accepted the gospel message and turned their hearts toward Christ. Dr. Berhane tells us what God taught him through dark days of suffering and how he prepared himself to face persecution. Finally, he’ll update listeners on the current situation for believers in Eritrea and share specific ways to pray for that African nation.

Be Still and Know That You Know

God uttered “relationships.”

Also vocalized was ‘there is a moment and a season for everything under heaven.’ Indicating this season of what I perceive as an impasse, God sees as a respite and refresh in Him.

I don’t know what the next seconds hold, but I do know that Jesus lovingly grips me up and guards my thighs.

He is my resting place. I query the next move.

In the waiting I discover abundance, His riches, and his peace that passes anything I will ever realize.

He’s summoning me to the hammock of grace, yet again. 🙂

To sway on and let Him blanket me.

Rising helix of understanding, That God is my portion; in this I find ease.

In returning to God and rest I will be kept, in hush and secure confidence Jesus is my strength.

Isaiah 30:15

I Charge You.

Don’t forget those that are suffering for their faith in God. This rings in my mind quiet often. Do not forget. I am thankful that I can go to a house of worship without fear of being followed or killed for it. I am thankful that I wasn’t lined up on a beach and executed for being a Christian.

I can’t forget other brother’s and sister’s for we are of the Body of Messiah, we are the Bride He is returning for.

Make no mistake, wherever God has called me I will go. More then likely and lately it’s meant dyeing to what ‘I’ want, and living for what God wills.

That is a kind of martyrdom too, only the intentional denial of self even when self is screaming blood murder.

I urge you fellow readers to come to the One who has open arms and kindness to you. I challenge you readers to stand up for what is right, not to change your moral code based on popular opinion but even in the face of death, you stand firm.

Having done all, stand.

Fight the good fight of faith.

A Story of Mercy

 

bestill

Be Still and Know He is God.

This is my May 2013 Testimony before I graduated from Mercy Ministries, Now called Mercy Multiplied. This coming May will be the three year anniversary! Praise God!

As a kid, I felt very misunderstood and misplaced. I befriended others who were considered social outcasts.

Middle school and high school years were difficult, and I began to struggle with borderline anorexia.

When I was 17, I witnessed a shooting while on a mission trip, which was traumatic, but I think I just tried to block it out and go on with life.

During my freshman year of college, I started to self-harm.

During my sophomore year, I was dismissed by the university because of the way I was hurting my body through cutting and abusing diet pills.

When I returned home, I was very bitter and I struggled with binge eating and cutting at an even harsher extent.

At age 21, I attempted to take my life.

 I felt chaotic and aimless.

Thankfully, I didn’t die.

God still had plans for me.

I found out about Mercy through my grandmother who had suggested I read “Echoes of Mercy.”

I decided to apply because I had had enough of the struggle I had been facing and wanted freedom.

While at Mercy, I was set free from self-harm by God, and have learned I am uniquely His.

I also learned to take my thoughts captive and much more.

After Mercy, I plan to return home to live with my parents and get involved in local outreach.

I look forward to going to church and volunteering there.

I would really love to use my musical gifts to exalt God.

I also want to finish school to become a Professor of Biblical Studies.

No words can describe how thankful I am for all the staff has done.

They have shown love and kindness and were so willing to come alongside me to help me through this season in my life.

Choose God, Choose Life

As the days go by we choose how we spend out life breathed time. every human on the face of planet earth…

Each person shows the handwork of God almighty, the heavens declare His Glory…Both those that believe and follow Him and those that choose not to…

The God like ability to be self aware, to reason, to choose…Is a gift every single one of them…

God is simple and yet profound awesome and loving, Holy Awesome and full of a Holy Jealously…There is no high like the Most High 😀

I’m telling you God is so Good! Ask and receive the entirety of who Jesus is who the Holy Spirit is…Out of our belly’s come rivers of living water, that water that Jesus spoke of that was from Him where we wouldn’t thirst nor hunger…

God fixed my car! It needed to be fixed, my father’s inspection wasn’t a big bill!

Praise God!!

Hosanna!

If I could pour out the Spirit through this post, through these typed words…Can I just say that God has given me Garments of Praise in exchange for a spirit of heaviness, and Oil of Joy in exchange for a spirit of grief, beauty for ashes!

He moved the mountain of cutting my body to hell!

He saved me!

He is faithful, He is Truth in the flesh!

He is alive and well!

Grab hold of Jesus, He will not let go, even when you yourself want to give up!

At Day’s End

There will not be a day that Yeshua isn’t by my side.

With my entire being, I worship You God.

You God are faithful when all around is losing it’s head in madness…

I find my center in who you are Jesus, my salvation, my strength, my all…

God clear my mind, have all of my world, make my heart beat in time with Yours…

What is on Your Mind God?

What gives You Joy?

I surrender all, ‘I’ get out of the way, to walk in The Way, The Truth and The Life you’ve breathed into my lungs…

A Glorious Upset

What looks strange, in the midst of the madness there will be power rung by heaven, the heaviness of God poured out ‘upon all flesh’ as it was in Acts, as it said in Joel…For Adonai’s name sake, for everything good and perfect is from the LORD!

For His own sake He will lift those who put their trust in Him, He will lift them up! Vengeance from God takes a form no one sees coming, it always has and always will…

revenge comes in the form of salvation of those who have once persecuted! For how is evil overcome? With good! With the goodness of God! what better revenge on the darkness then to push the gates of hell back with new children of God!

One heck of an upset!

What makes us for a second think that the same Son of Man who overturned the tables when He was here upon the earth, what audacity have we to think that He who overturned tables of the money changers won’t overturn court rulings or turn the world on it’s head for His Glory?!

When Daniel was persecuted, when they brought charges against him for lifting the God of Israel up in prayer, Daniel kept on praying and the jaws of the lions were slam shut because of the angles keeping them shut, but they devoured those that threw Daniel there in the first place.

In Isaiah chapter six verse one:

In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted,seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple. Isaiah 6:1 NIV

In that day Egypt and Iraq will be connected by a highway, and the Egyptians and the Iraqis will move freely back and forth between their lands, and they shall worship the same God.  And Israel will be their ally; the three will be together, and Israel will be a blessing to them. For the Lord will bless Egypt and Iraq because of their friendship with Israel. He will say, “Blessed be Egypt, my people; blessed be Iraq, the land I have made; blessed be Israel, my inheritance!” Isaiah 19:23-25 NLV

God will have the final say, God bless your inheritance, God come quickly and Lord I lift my eyes up to You to behold Your Glory, Your Might, Your Peace that passes anything I can grasp and I don’t want it any other way.

Your Way alone Lord God, Your Kingdom Come YOUR WILL be DONE ON Earth as it is in Heaven!
