Rescue me, O LORD, from my enemies; I take refuge in You. Teach me to do Your will [so that I may please You], For You are my God; Let Your good Spirit lead me on level ground.
~Psalm 143:9-10 AMP
Baring His Beauty, Tiffany Thomas
Tell her that she is beautiful
That I love everything about her
The way she smiles
The way she carries herself
I even love her silliness
Her love for others, but mostly when
She searches for Me
She does not have to compare herself
If she is too “this” or “that”,
I created her in My image and in My eyes she’s perfect
I knew her before she was born
I created her to be One with Me
I love the woman she’s becoming
Tell her to let go of what was
The hurt, the pain, the betrayal
I will heal her wounded soul
Quiet her restless mind
In Me she will find perfect peace
There is so much hidden within her
It’s time for her to run with Me
To discover her place in Me
To share her gift with the world
She will find what she needs in
Her worth at My feet
If she longs for Me with her
I will take her on adventures
In Me she will find her home
Tell her to let go of her fears
I will replace it with a faith so strong
I have heard her desperate cries
Saw her tears, when no one did
My love for her is relentless
I will wash away her pain
Anoint her with fresh oil
Dress her in robes of love
She will know that I am her
The One who gives her wings
Daughter of Zion don’t be afraid
For what you need is found in Me
You have wondered around for
Putting your trust in man
It only brought you tears
Give Me a chance to heal your heart
I loved you since the beginning of time
And as you go with Me, into the unknown
Our heart’s will beat as One
The depths of My love will set
You will know a peace that passes all understanding
For My perfect love casts out
Together we will rule and reign
We will be unstoppable
Fearless amidst every storm
You will find your place in my heart
along side other bride’s

I didn’t think I’d find You here- in the middle of my deepest fear…..
I love these lyrics! See image below:
God is here in the middle of the
The healing that hasn’t happened yet…..
Another great song by Ellie Holcomb off Red Sea Road Album.
Find You Here

God is not afraid of a fight; neither should we be. Our dad is bigger than the enemies dad; he is stronger, wiser, and more loving. I love the fearlessness of the angel, Michael, in the movie of the same name. God is not afraid, the angels are not afraid, so we do not need to be afraid. We just need to be sure that we are fighting with God and not against him. We need to be sure that we are fighting the battles that he wants fought, fighting with his weapons, and fighting for his glory.
We are fighting the good fight of faith with the weapons of faith, hope, and love. We believe in God’s promises, we hope in our heavenly rewards, and we love with his strength. Doubt must give way to faith, despair must give way to hope, and fear must give way to love. All of our daily disciplines are to prepare us for victory in the day of battle. With God we shall do valiantly, for he shall trample down our enemies.
Our doubts will dissipate in the light of all of God’s sure promises. He has never failed us, and he never will fail us. He will come through with just what we need just when we need it. John tells us that if we are abiding in Christ, abiding in his word, and bearing fruit for him, then our prayers will be answered.
Then, despair must give way to hope. We will be assured of victory in all of our struggles. We will be assured of great heavenly reward as we learn to overcome in every season and in every trial. We will be assured that Our Father is delighting in us as we learn to delight in him and fight along side him in the great battle of the ages, the great battle for souls.
Then, love will be our constant companion, our strength, and our song. Our fears will melt away as we occupy ourselves with loving well and living well and bringing joy to Our Father’s heart. When we live in love, we live in God, and he lives in us, and love never fails.
I just returned from the whole Disney Theme Park trip in Orlando, Florida. I am still trying to wrap my mind around the huge amounts of people these parks draw in each day.
One would think a Thursday in February would be a smaller crowd at the Magic Kingdom. Nope, not the case at all, thousands poured in at the magic opening hour of 9 am. Since I was in line to get autographs from all the different Disney princesses my attention was drawn to watching the little girls meet and greet these beautiful Disney actors.
They were playing their part perfectly as if they just stepped out of their particular animated movie to specifically greet you. One couldn’t help but get caught up in the wonder of the fantasy of these characters. Even so much as to go and get pixie dust in our hair after meeting Tinker Belle. Yes, the mom’s needed faith, trust and a little pixie dust dropped on their heads too. It’s quite easy for me to go into pretend mode and be a princess. After all I grew up on Cinderella and believed I too would meet my Prince Charming and live happily ever after.
I was reminded this week at Disney that we are ALL created for a purpose bigger than ourselves. We have the DNA of our Creator flowing through us that causes us to look upward and beyond. Yes…..to infinity and beyond just like Buzz Lightyear. No wonder so many people are drawn to the Magic Kingdom. These are not just kids who are being mesmerized by the possibilities of flying like Peter Pan or having “Magic” power to make all your dreams come true.
We were created for so much more than we are experiencing currently on earth.
We are the sons and daughters of the King of Kings. If we decide to step into our royal calling through the blood of Jesus. We too are sprinkled with something far more powerful than fairy dust. We have the ability to be co-heirs with Christ.
This is a happily ever after story for us.
We have a choice to choose the side of good and or the side of evil.
I choose to come as a child and receive my inheritance in Christ Jesus.
The huge Tree of Life is the center of attention at The Animal Kingdom. I will admit I couldn’t keep my eyes off of it. It has all the animals slightly hidden and carved all around the trunk and branches.
It is our salvation in Jesus Christ that makes the Tree of Life come alive daily in all of us.
It’s magical not easily explained.
We are in the happiest place on earth when we rest our heads on the One who leads us through the circle of life. If we listen closely we can hear Him whisper, “You are a child of mine!”.
Have you heard the song, ‘No Longer Slaves’ by David and Melissa Helser?
Check it out below.
Discover who you can be in Christ if you choose to step into royalty and live happily ever after to infinity and beyond.

“You will also be a crown of beauty in the hand of the LORD, And a royal diadem in the hand of your God.”
“Now if we are children, then we are heirs–heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.”
I Peter 2:9
“But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;”
(Children of God)
“So you are no longer a slave, but God’s child; and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir.”
(Tree Of Life)
“‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paradise of God.'”
“The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, And he who is wise wins souls.”
A compass is used to help you find your sense of direction and ultimately guide you where you need to be to get you where you need to go.
A great tool when lost.
An even greater tool to always keep on hand.
That is how many are in the world today; Lost; without a sense of direction of where they need to go.
A compass points you North, East, South or West- but the Great Compass of life; always points to Jesus.
You won’t get lost or wander aimlessly with Jesus.
He will always help you find which way to go.

WORTHY THOUGHT: We should look for opportunities to use words that will encourage us and fellow believers.
Anxiety in the man’s heart weighs him down, but a good word cheers it up. ~Proverbs 12:25
The most encouraging words we could ever use comes directly from the Word of God.
We are told in Proverbs 12:25 how the right message of encouragement can help someone over come feelings of anxiety and discouragement.
Here is another reminder of God’s promise to help overcome our anxiety and discouragements.
“So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
Thank you Father God, for being so good to us and for always being with us in good times and bad. Amen.

We just walk with our masks on
Pretending to have it all together
While inside we sit with our
scars and our pain
We cover the scars, try to hide
The bandages wet with our tears
There’s no time to deal with heart issues
No one to listen
No one to talk to
We drift in the background
Clinging to our pain like a prize
We are in this rat race leading
While we run further away
From the King of our hearts
Tormented in our minds
Our hearts never free
To taste the depths of His extravagant love
Our time to be loved is now!!!
Long enough, were we bound up
in robes of our past
Holding us captive
With no sign of freedom
While He wants to dress us in robes of His love
He is wooing us, to find the path to His heart
Step out of your grave clothes
Take off your mask
Trade your ashes for a love journey
Trade your pain for freedom unknown
In Him you will find what you need
He will calm every storm you are facing
Together you will win many battles
Your King has summoned you to
He extended His scepter to you
You are deeply loved and favoured
He will take your brokenness and make you whole
He is a covenant God
He paid a high price for you to be free
He will meet you in your deepest pain
There is no time to waste!!!
For your time to be loved is now!!!
He will erase all your pain with a stroke of His love
Others still bound up are waiting
To step into their lives
Their freedom is bound up in your surrender
Stop wasting your time on things
of the past
In Him you will find a brand new start
I see your face radiant with joy
His peace invading your whole being
You are finally free to love and be loved
There is a new song on your lips of redemption and love
You have exchanged your rags for a garment of fine linen and silk
You have made yourself ready
As your eyes lock with His,
and you are finally free
You step out to rescue other bride’s
For their time to be loved is now.
~ Ebigale Wilson
What if I saw me the way that You see me?
What if I believed it was true?
What if I traded this shame and self-hatred for a chance at believing You?
