"The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion — to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair." ~ from ISAIAH 61 Bible verse for this Blog

BELOVED

"Beloved, you have at times thought time with Me an obligation, and have seen it on occasions as drudgery. Sometimes you come because of guilt and feel you will miss out or be penalized if you don’t. There are times you come and right when I am ready to open the windows and doors of Heaven to pour out My goodness, you turn away because of unworthiness or busyness. This must not be. I have so very much to give…so much love to provoke in your heart towards Me, others and yourself...."

MY FATHER'S HEART

"The trouble with nearly everybody who prays is that they say “Amen” and run away before God has a chance to reply. Listening to God is far more important than giving Him your ideas." ~ Frank Laubach
Psalm 150
1 Praise the LORD. Praise God in His sanctuary; praise Him in His mighty heavens. 2 Praise Him for His acts of power; praise Him for His surpassing greatness. 3 Praise Him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise Him with the harp and lyre, 4 praise Him with tambourine and dancing, praise Him with the strings and flute, 5 praise Him with the clash of cymbals, praise Him with resounding cymbals.
6 Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD.

I should have shared this last Sunday, on Father's Day...
I have been reflecting & praying all this week
...to Our Heavenly Father
who I honor with this song as my prayer!
I had shared this on my blog back
when I started in 2008 but that video is no longer available,
so in case that happens with this one
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNnBpZ-kp1I
Here are the words:
My Father's Heart ~ Rachael Lampa
Let everything that breathes
Praise You
The earth, the sky, the sea
Praise You
Just as nature shows to us
Your blessing
Soon I find my heart
Confessing
Chorus:
My love is not my own
It all belongs to You
And after all You've done
the least that I can do
Is live my life
In every part
Only to please my Father's heart
Verse 2:
Love is all You need
To heal us
Flowing from the heavens, Jesus
And with one voice we'll sing
Together
And this will be our song
Forever
(Chorus)(Instrumental Bridge)(Chorus)
MAY YOU
ENJOY

SPIRITUAL SUNDAY

LINK UP or JUST ENJOY and
BE BLESSED
AS YOU ENTER into WORSHIP
MAY OUR HEARTS and ALL THAT IS WITHIN US
PRAISE HIM
and
LIVE OUR LIVES
to please
ONLY OUR FATHER'S HEART
Heavenly Father... as I come before You, each day in prayer, and worship You alone, may I linger long enough to hear You, to listen to Your reply, to give You a chance to speak to my spirit, resonate in my heart and live through me throughout each day. As I pause and listen to You, may my ears remain attentive all day long as You whisper sweetly to me, calling me back to spend time with You... in each activity, may You be in the center and may my thoughts, words and actions reflect someone so in love with the LORD that I pour forth more of You and less of me. May my flesh surrender to You and I commit living a life fully under Your control, guidance, wisdom, and flow in Your Spirit and fruit so others will know how Great You are...the great I AM... the Alpha and Omega... the Living Word & Water of my soul, I thirst and hunger for more of You in me... abundantly... in Your aMazing Grace and Love... that's why WORSHIP is a WAY! Happy Father's Day (belated) but wished every day that You be happy in all You are accomplishing in me and through me... as I walk ever so closely with my hand in Yours... trusting and believing... in Jesus' beloved Name...
ADDED NOTE: the initial quote struck me and others so I wanted to share a bit of who is Frank Laubach:
Dr. Frank C. Laubach (1884-1970) was a Christian Evangelical missionary and mystic known as "The Apostle to the Illiterates." In 1935, while working at a remote location in the Philippines, he developed the "Each One Teach One" literacy program, which has been used to teach about 60 million people to read in their own language. He was deeply concerned about poverty, injustice and illiteracy, and considered them a barrier to peace in the world. In 1955, he founded Laubach Literacy and Mission Fund, now called Laubach Literacy. During his latter years of his life, traveled all over the world speaking on topics of literacy and world peace. He was author of a number of devotional writings and works on literacy.

Meanwhile, I heal and rest in the shadow of the Almighty
under His wings
and
so should you
no matter what healing you may need...
COME TO A PLACE of HOPE
1 Peter 5: 7
Psalm 55:22
Hebrews 4:15-16
"There are times when we pray and we long to pour out our heart to God, but for whatever reason we feel we cannot. I would encourage you to talk to God just like you would talk to that good, close friend - the one with whom you can pour out your heart and be completely unafraid.
We read in Hebrews 4:15-16, "For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin." That verse is telling us that Jesus Christ, our High Priest, is a feeling person, and He can feel our pain and our infirmities. He was tempted like we are, and He knows what it is like. The next verse goes on, "Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need."
As you pray, I encourage you to go boldly before the throne of God. Tell Him the things that are on your heart. Tell Him your hurts and your pains, your disappointments, the things you struggle with, the things that you are tempted by. Do not hesitate. Do not think, "Well I can't tell God this. He doesn't want to hear it." He already knows anyway. "
Prayers are always welcome
at
The Lighthouse of Prayer
I pray that today or any day you would sense the HEALING HAND of GOD in your life of your hurts, hang-ups and habits. He is Our Healer! He is Our Deliverer! He is Our Counselor! He is the wings that lift us up or cover us with love & protection. He is Our Shield! He is Our Protector!
He is all this and so much more! He is ever so loving, faithful, patient, forgiving and strong! The list of His character traits is endless and His grace is so aMazing! Far beyond our infinite thinking, He extends to us promises that never fail, a life for all eternity, a complete package as Our Savior, Our Redeemer, Our Lord ... just make Him YOURS!!! WOW! He is an awesome God!

Precious LORD, Even in the process of healing, grieving, growing, we can PRAISE and WORSHIP You! It is at times like this that I run to You even more... and now I've learned to keep on PRAISING You because You see the whole picture, You know the reason, You know the beginning and the end, You are the Alpha and Omega, the Great I am. I praise You when I'm not sure You're there, just because I know You are... my heart just may not be aware. I come to You with THANKS for all You are doing while I'm in this place and have just come to TRUST You have the complete plan, and will bring good from all of these times. Because You are God... and You are on the Throne, in Your authority, I step out in faith and continue this journey with You ahead of me, beside me, behind me and surrounding me. You are an awesome God! No matter the circumstances, You are in control. I surrender each day to You.
All GLORY, HONOR and PRAISE to YOU my King... I see Your Healing Hand and I hold on...

"IF WE ARE THE BODY..."

June 14th, 2010 – August 9th, 2010

What does it mean to be the body of Christ? How does that play out in our everyday lives? How do we, as women, fit in to the body?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TkH101kgT9U

"...We need God and His Word. We need other believers...."

AMEN!

It's time to GO DEEPER...

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS for this first week:

Do you daily study your “reflection” to see if you have “something in your teeth?”

What kind of accountability of believers do you have in your life right now?

[Need to go read there to have a better understanding to answer]

Continually find myself returning to the 'cocoon' and transformation part, even after sharing...growing...maintaining... will I ever be a beautiful butterfly? Filled with hope and commitment as I go through the 'process' and clean house, changing and healing...
*[You have to read & do this book - it's meant for all of us
to have freedom from hurts, hang-ups and habits,
not just recovery from addictions but sin and poor choices]
HAVE YOU BEGUN YOUR HEALING?
RESTORATION, RENEWAL? REVIVAL?
THIS IS WHERE THE HEALING BEGINS...
God saved you by His grace when you believed. And you can't take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago. (Ephesians 2, NLT)

"...HOW DEEP
HOW STRONG
NOW BY YOUR GRACE
I STAND...
...OUR PRESENT, OUR FUTURE, OUR PAST
IS
IN YOUR HANDS
WE'RE COVERED BY YOUR BLOOD..."
MY LIFE IS IN YOUR HANDS
and
I'M SO THANKFUL
Currently in a study group that's excellent and I highly recommend the book "Life's Healing Choices" Freedom from Your Hurts, Hang-ups and Habits by John Baker
Life's Healing Choices: Freedom from Your Hurts, Hang-ups, and Habits
accompanied by an 8 Session DVD taught by Rick Warren based on the Beatitudes in Matthew 5:3-10. "HAPPINESS is a CHOICE and you can choose it one choice at a time..."
Much to heal and learn... but HEALING IS IN HIS HANDS...
[source]
"I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge -- that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God."
