TODAY’S WORDS ARE TO: TAKE HEART!

Yes friends it just that clear, take heart. In big caps, in enunciated syllables if you will! In an exaggerated dialect, take heart!  Meaning don’t worry, don’t fret, don’t be intimidated, don’t be afraid! As Bishop Brooner would say, “Don’t be afraid, afraid of false evidence appearing real!”  That’s what fear is.  My God it’s good to know that we can take comfort-own the security that God’s steering our lives, God’s vessel-us, my life, and your life! He cares for what concerns us. This was made so clear this morning as I sat myself at my desk and prepared for another work day. At the click of a mouse here‘s what was once again revealed during a devotional moment on: Blueletterbible.com:

Today’s Promise from the Bible

John 4:14

But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

Reflection

Take heart in the evident promise of your salvation: that always and forever shall your soul be filled to overflowing with abundant and eternal life! Never shall you thirst. Never shall you dry up. Never shall your soul be parched. Rather take joy in this: unto everlasting shall your heart’s thirst be quenched as rivers of God’s living water pour down from heaven as you bask in the glory of God’s own Son: Christ Jesus.

The sentiment of today’s devotional  lines up so beautifully with my post written during Lenten season: MEET YOU AT THE WELL: HAVING A HEART-TO-HEART WITH JESUS!   shared on my blog: Celebrating Ordinary Days With Extraordinary Promises.  After reading this post we can breathe easy. We are well assured!

 Let’s exhale! God is our very breathe! That’s all the reason to praise the Lord!

Let’s prepare for the day ahead and sing about God’s glory with Mary Alessi and her anointed friends,  We Thirst For You.  Come on, come on and be ushered into praise and worship. Listening and participating in this awesome praise and worship you can’t help but to react and bask in the glow! The Holy Spirit is speaking. Let the chills run down your spine, the hairs stand up on your arms as your soul relishes that all the hustle and bustle does not negate that our real search is a soul-a heart awakening experience.  Why? Because we thirst for Him-more of Him! Jehovah, Friend, Father, Teacher, Lord, Shepard, Mother, Savior, Jesus Christ, Adoni Messiah!  Blessings to you today on this refreshing, restorative morning!

 May Alessi & Friends singing: We Thirst For You

DREAMERS, BE ENCOURAGED BY AN AMAZING JOURNEY ~ A PRAYER FOR GOD’S WILL

 
 
 “Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them slip from your heart as long as you live.

Teach them to your children and to their children after them.”
Deuteronomy 4:9
 
 
‘If you can’?” said Jesus.
“Everything is possible for him who believes.”
Mark 9:23
 
 
 
Dreamers keep dreaming! Hold on, don’t let go of the dream that won’t die, won’t go away! Our hair may be wind blown, possibly gray around the edges, clothes scorched and singed from the fires of life, but we’ve made it! Everyday is a new possibility! Here’s a message I wrote a while ago and I sincerely believe it’s still relevant. Let’s revisit this reminder to stay determined! As they say, “Keep it moving! Keep the dream ever before you!” Remain steadfast, moving in the direction of your heart’s desire and trust that God is your faithful anchor! Move on, your life’s journey awaits you!
 
Where will your life’s journey take you? What is burning in your soul to accomplish? What are you believing God for? You may ask yourself quietly, “Can God really take me there or am I fooling myself?” Well it’s up to you to trust Him or not! I strongly believe that your second guessing is delaying the answer to your heart’s desire, your prayers.

As you map out your steps, your route, your destiny I encourage you to ask yourself some important questions. You need not have all the answers just the vigor to step out in faith. Or will you give up and let others stand in your way? Just possibly-maybe in your heart of hearts that inner voice will convince you that what you are hoping for is impossible? Find Holy scripture that speaks to your reservations. I am convinced that those negative conversations, and negative voices are not the divine that dwells within us. I implore you,  don’t let the enemy rob you of your divine calling and an awesome life’s lesson that waits you. Your journey will show the world that God has equipped you to survive. God desires to inspire all of us, but especially you!

I pray you persevere, hold on and simply believe that what awaits you at your journey’s end or at the fork in the road was meant for your good. But you’ve got to make a move in the direction in which you’ve been ushered to go. You’ve got the power-it’s your call!

Take a look at this amazing journey of a young man named Kingsley who’s in search for an improved life. Kingsley’s journey from the Cameron to Europe gives new meaning to the word “determination”! I thank God for this photo journal that allows us to witness this young man’s struggle, but more importantly what it means not to be detered!

Take heart, continue in prayer and push on my friends! God doesn’t fail, let His love and His promises keep encouraging you in your quest to move forward. So many have overcome and you can too!

 A Prayer for God’s will from St. Augustine of Hippo:

God of our life, there are days when the burdens we carry chafe our shoulders and weigh us down; when the road seems dreary and endless, the skies grey and threatening; when our lives have no music in them; and our hearts are lonley, and our souls have lost their courage. Flood the path with light, we beseech the; turn our eyes to where the skies are full of promise; tune our hearts to brave music; give us the sense of comradeship with heroes and saints of every age; and so quicken our spirits that we may be able to encourage the souls of all who journey with us on the road of life; to thy honor and glory.

 


Excited About The Days Ahead!
