Time…

Time…

“the indefinite continued progress of existence and events in the past, present and future regarded as a whole”

Her tears fell on gravel of time

she was tired of peoples opinions

telling her what to do

and who she should be

she was tired of living up

to others expectations

that she forgot who she was

and all the pretty little things

she liked

she became weary and angry at herself which lead her to believe a voice that had drilled her most of her life “what is wrong with me”

they would say

look at her

she’s too much

she shared too much

she loved too much

her beauty was too much

she is too much

she had a past she thought

would never let her go

“do you have any convictions”?

the lady with piercing blue eyes

her face more than close

to her face in that moment

she froze and just like her old court days when the judge cracked his hammer and wanted to throw her down his chambers because she was guilty “silence in the court room” was the silence in this room

a thousand horses ran wildly through her mind everything came rushing back everything she had ever done

all her convictions she had committed

her past her present

her soul began to feel the resurrection of pain guilt shame trauma fear

all the stones people had thrown at her over time and in this time.

Is this how Mary felt when the religious leaders threw her to the ground at the feet of a man who did not come to condemn her but to love her and show her the way to life?

She was ashamed of herself, too much guilt to even look him in the eye

until his hand of generosity reached out to her she wasn’t expecting anything from him;

but he whispered her name

looked past all her shame

the words He spoke comforted her soul and brought hope

“You will be too much for many but don’t worry about what they say you keep being you and keep being too much cause I have placed too much inside you to not let people see My glory if they say you share too much they are trying to stop what I’m saying through you apart of what they say “she is too much” is true because I created you to be too much

He helped her to stand on her feet again

He stood between the religious ones who have tried to keep her in a box of her past

He lifts her chin welcomes her

she looks at Him

she catches his eyes

she can’t look away

captivated by his mercy and grace

He whispers

“when I look at you I see Me

I cannot help but cry because I know the darkness you’ve had to go through to get you right here

right now

I’ve surrounded you with My beautiful light

you didn’t give up no matter the pain and never seeming to end battles one after another you never gave up you got knocked down but over time you arose and allowed me to steady your walk

You are forgiven.

Not just the surface stuff but the hidden stuff you hide within I see it all and it’s time to release it, release it all, it’s not who you are

all those things are used to torment you. It’s time precious one, it’s time to let go you will arise from the fire more at peace you will walk a little lighter and joy will flood your soul expect unusual which is just right for you, you hear my voice come walk with me beloved.

He makes all things beautiful in his time and for every season under heaven everything takes time to heal

to break down

to build up

to weep to laugh

to mourn a time to dance

Man made a cage

but I made your wings

it is for freedom that I came

to set you free

~ Ngahuia Harvey

It was like a dream come true when you freed us from our bondage and brought us back to Zion! We laughed and laughed and overflowed with gladness. We were left shouting for joy and singing your praise. All the nations saw it and joined in, saying, “The Lord has done great miracles for them!” Yes, he did mighty miracles and we are overjoyed! Now, Lord, do it again! Restore us to our former glory! May streams of your refreshing flow over us until our dry hearts are drenched again. Those who sow their tears as seeds will reap a harvest with joyful shouts of glee. They may weep as they go out carrying their seed to sow, but they will return with joyful laughter and shouting with gladness as they bring back armloads of blessing and a harvest overflowing!

~ Psalm 126:1-6 TPT

My Paradigm Shift

God is God Alone

And I am never on my own

My heart needs to know

He has called me as His own

I am unapologetically blessed

No need to know

what happens next

Trusting in His leading

And obeying His Call

Laughing at the future

Knowing Jesus did it all

Faith without borders

You are my rescue story

God uses your tears

to water your dreams

As impossible as it may seem

Believe as you triumph victoriously

Even if you have Faith as small

as a mustard seed

Faith, Love and Hope is All you need

You were created for much more can’t you see?

Lay down your life daily

So that you can be found acceptable in Me

All battles are won

because of Calvary

And every need is met

in His perfect timing

Keeping no account

of cancelled debt

The slate has been wiped clean

We have been redeemed!

Rejection?

No, My child it’s divine redirection

You will always be the object

of the Father’s affection

Like a child standing

on Daddy’s feet

In the dance of Love

Where He takes the lead

Lovingly guiding

As He dances to His own beat

Holding you close

never letting you go

Relentless pursuit

Forever in His Grip

I’m still in His hands

And a part of the Master’s Plan

Dance on disappointment

And watch how

your future unfolds in Me

You were purchased in full

And fully redeemed

The thought of His Love

A blissful retreat

Forgiveness abounding

At the Mercy seat

My Paradigm Shift

My place of Peace

God You are my everything

No greater Love can ever be found

Except in the Father’s loving arms

And where Grace still abounds

Did You Ask?

Did you ask the Lord for patience?

Did you plead for it in prayer?

But when tribulation tried you,

Did you think He didn’t care?

Oh, my child, He heard and answered,

Answered full your earnest cry:

“Tribulation worketh patience!”

Now you know the reason why.

Did you ask Him for submission?

Did you ask for it in prayer?

But when suffering came upon you,

Did you think it wasn’t fair?

Oh, my dear, He heard and answered,

Though not how you wished, ‘tis clear;

For we only learn submission

By the things we suffer here.

‘Twas unselfishness you wanted?

Did you plead for it in prayer?

But the sacrifice He asked for,

Did it seem too great to bear?

Oh, He cared, He heard and answered,

Answered full your heart-felt prayer;

For we learn to be unselfish,

By the sacrifice we bear.

Did you ask the Lord for victory?

Well, He took you at your word!

Tho’ when the battle raged around you,

You wondered if He’d heard.

Oh, my child, He heard and answered,

And He gave you your request:

For how can you win a victory

If you never face a test?

Did you ask to be made humble?

Not to have self-righteous pride?

But then wonder when He published

All your failings far and wide?

Well, my child, that was His answer

To your prayer of desperation:

The surest way to be made humble,

Is to bear humiliation.

Judge not God with mortal’s judgement, When your prayers are answered so;

For the truest paths for Christians,

Often lead through vales of woe.

And the answers that He gives you,

Will be truly good and fair:

Though you may not understand them

Till you view from over there!

My Worship Belongs To You

Amazingly Real

No matter what you’re going through, may you remember that your identity is secure in Christ; it’s not up for grabs or changeable with popular opinion.

Jesus is sold on the idea of you and loves how He made you!

May you trust Him to guide, provide, correct, and redirect you along the way.

May you love people, but keep your hope in the Lord.

May you see with eyes of faith even when you can’t find a reason for hope.

Seasons come and seasons go, but God’s love for you is abundant, profound, and amazingly real, right here, right now.

Walk like you’re loved, because you are, beyond your wildest dreams.

Have a beautiful day!

~ Fenich Jerry

You Will Overcome

May you step back from the things that frustrate you and consider what God might be saying to you here.

Is He asking you to lay down your arms and entrust your soul to Him?

Or is He asking you to raise your shield and stand in faith?

Either way, you’re not at the mercy of your circumstances, you have His mercy and He’ll keep you steady and sturdy in your faith.

Don’t take the bait of offense.

Look up and do what Jesus tells you to do!

You will overcome!

Blessings on your day today.

~ Fenich Jerry

Establish

May the Lord Himself establish you in His highest and best purposes for you.

May He open doors, move mountains, and bring provision in the very near future.

May He confirm your faith steps and energize your prayers.

He is mighty, He is good, and He cares about every detail of your life.

Dare to obey Him and do what He says.

He’s making a way where there is no way.

He loves you truly and deeply.

Trust Him today.

~ Fenich Jerry

Above All Else

May you–above all else–see yourself as someone Jesus loves.

May His affection for you heal you in the deepest ways and inspire you like nothing else ever has.

May His saving grace and enabling power compel you to dream with Him, believe in Him, and take crazy-faith-steps because of Him.

May every lesser voice and every lying circumstance fall by the wayside so that all you hear is His voice in your ear saying, ‘This is the way, walk in it.’

Nobody’s opinion matters as much as God’s.

Nobody can save, heal, redeem, and refresh like Jesus.

Walk intimately with Him today.

His will for you is your best-case-scenario.

~ Fenich Jerry

Now

Be here now

Be present to

What god inside of me would do :

Teach preach outreach >

Don’t just wish but

Get out there and

Catch the fish

And once they’re caught

They’re cleaned loved taught

To see they’re more than what they thought

To free their core

To see there’s more

Than just a key to heavens door

To do the stuff

Be smooth not rough

OR rough not smooth -?

(Depends on where you’re out of balance ) >

Create spiritual elegance

In an environment of risk

Yes that’s the womb : spiritual matrix –

A learning curve > not just a fix :

A Burning bush that calls you near

Unveils the reason you are here

Through daily scramble – navigate hours

A ramble through thorns – thistles -flowers

Ups and downs / success and failure

Equip you

to find your future

Uplifted view / upshifted gear

A brave new world and fresher air

Go >

See what’s really inside there

Battle past the outer layer

Find the child inside the man

Find the diamond in the mine

Find the pearl inside the shell

Ride the whirlwind transcend hell

Dance on demons waltz through seasons

Sing through rain

grow strong through pain

Find will (when down) to rise again

To persevere to stand. Endure >

To resist temptations allure

Create a structure so secure

That stormy skies /death /lies /heartaches

All failure folly and mistakes

evaporates…..

The Snow White Christ emancipates

New worth awakes > scale TEN earthquakes :

The levee of your whole life breaks >

The snow globe shakes…..
