"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

The Broken Way - Week Four

Week 4
 Feb. 12-18

"...Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus." — Philippians 3:13-14

Philippians 3:13-14

Jesus, thank You. I don’t have adequate words to say thank You, to say I love you. Thank You for koinonia, for the fellowship we share with others who call you Savior, too. Thank You that You will never leave us, never forsake us, never be separated from us. Thank You for loving us unstoppably!  We love You, Jesus! Amen."

* This goes perfectly with this week's special event and another really great book I am currently reading for a review "No More Faking Fine" by Esther Fleece - it almost has stopped me from continuing this study and the "Finding I AM ... because it is definitely a wonderful accompaniment to the woven tapestry altogether in this process of "healing" that God has me working through ... from all ends and sides. Although I hardly ever "fake fine" ... much of what I am reading from Esther, is so very applicable to "The Broke Way" plus all my reading plans with You Version and even church sermons ... God is really driving home how important "healing" is for me and how He has been continually healing me spiritually, emotionally, and other ways as I learn to lay down wrong thinking and reactions, habits that don't belong, years of unresolved conflicts, situations never dealt with instead running away from them, trying to escape the pain and further consequences and continuation but nothing has changed; it all still remains, until I totally allow God to heal completely, which may not happen until the other side for me, yet I'm concerned about the others that need healing just as much, and this breaks me even more - however our God is faithful as we come to Him, cling to Him, empty out what doesn't belong and allow Him to heal and wash us with His aMazing Grace, Mercy and unconditional Love!!! I am overwhelmed when I think on all this and sense His Almighty Presence doing a real work (as I pray for so many others too). I have been isolating myself and I think it is for protection, self-preservation, not able or wanting to lose control and let God be God in everything and just trust Him with it all. I'm realizing that after 20 years away ... I am still as wounded as I was before ... and ever so thankful that God has been with me, held me constantly and although I did not complete all He or I had hoped in these last 20 years, I am still a work in progress and God knows my heart as He holds me closely and daily reminds me I am His and oh how He loves me - which I guarantee is the same for you, whatever and wherever you are in this journey, He's waiting, He's right there and without a doubt You can trust Him to get you through with a better purpose and resolve, using every part to piece you all together once again according to His plan, His will and His design that has no flaws, and your failures or burdens - those weights, those "etchings" have all been covered by His Cross, His wounds, His stripes - we don't need to fake, we need to get real and deal, all He desires to heal and wants to now so open up, lean on Someone confidently, knowing God cares and is waiting for you to come, lay it all down and surrender to a complete healing and bringing you to a healthier state of being rather than doing, and a more compelling doing with His Kingdom purpose and plan rather than being just comfortable where you're at ... we're destined to grow on this journey to be more like Jesus, in fact to be Jesus in a hurting world that needs Him more than ever. Listen with your heart - no, better than that listen with His heart, open your eyes, ears, heart and life to His and the move of His Spirit through you to others in Jesus' name ... 

You Are Redeemed!
