He Is Here 


Many times in my life I have questioned, “Is God really here?” Is he here when a mother loses her precious child? Is he here when she cries out in pain? Is he here when grief seems harder than living? Is he here when sickness has no end? Is he here when hate is favored over loving? Is he here when it seems as if the world were going to break? Is he here?

Even still,
HE IS HERE.

“He told them a story. “Look at a fig tree. Any tree for that matter. When the leaves begin to show, one look tells you that summer is right around the corner. The same here—when you see these things happen, you know God’s kingdom is about here. Don’t brush this off: I’m not just saying this for some future generation, but for this one, too—these things will happen. Sky and earth will wear out; my words won’t wear out.” Luke‬ ‭21:29-33‬ ‭MSG‬‬

You Have A Choice 

Fallen by nature, pain from this earth will come and try to destroy today, tomorrow and the next. 

Stand firm in God’s promises for he does not waver. He is standing with you and he never moves away. He is your power and your strength. Lean in and not away, hold on tight, and do not lose sight of the hope he delivers. 

The enemy will try to convince you that the only choice you have is to unravel before him. Don’t believe him. He comes to take everything you have to gain by choosing something different, God’s truth. 

Remember there is much more. An abundant life awaits you. Reach for it. Step up and out of what’s comfortable so that you can grasp it. Praise be to the Glory of God once you find it. 

Her very own leaders are rapacious lions, Her judges are rapacious timber wolves out every morning prowling for a fresh kill. Her prophets are out for what they can get. They’re opportunists—you can’t trust them. Her priests desecrate the Sanctuary. They use God’s law as a weapon to maim and kill souls. 

Yet GOD remains righteous in her midst, untouched by the evil. He stays at it, day after day, meting out justice. At evening he’s still at it, strong as ever. But evil men and women, without conscience and without shame, persist in evil.” Zephaniah‬ ‭3:4-5‬ ‭MSG‬‬

Guiding Love 

The LORD will guide you always; 

he will satisfy your needs 

in a sun-scorched land 

and will strengthen your frame. 

You will be like a well-watered garden, 

like a spring whose waters never fail.”

               Isaiah 58:11 NIV

The Lord is steadfast, always. His path is never unpredictable, it is clearly marked. He satisfies our needs, even when we can’t feel that he is near. Our faith determines the footsteps on our journey. When we seek and draw in close, he gives us the strength to stand up tall. He leads us to the tranquil places of his heart, while watering our soul. Be guided by his love. An abundant life awaits you.

Hold Tight 

“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.” ~Hebrews 10:23 ESV

Often times it’s hard not to waiver in the turmoil, heartache, uncertainty, or challenges that we face day to day. It can be difficult to see any light when we are in the storm of life. 

God is our strength, stronghold, refuge, and resting place. He only desires us to know that he is faithful and stands in his promises. 

Whatever you may be facing, be assured that the Lord stands beside you in this place. 

Hold tight to the confession of your hope. 
His promise awaits you.

Blessings Come By Trusting 

“But blessed is the man who trusts me, GOD, the woman who sticks with GOD. They’re like trees replanted in Eden, putting down roots near the rivers— Never a worry through the hottest of summers, never dropping a leaf, Serene and calm through droughts, bearing fresh fruit every season.”   ~Jeremiah 17:7-8 MSG

When We Can’t See What’s Ahead – God Can

Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God’s Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don’t know how or what to pray, it doesn’t matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans. He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. That’s why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good.” ~ Romans‬ ‭8:26-28‬ ‭MSG‬‬

Jesus acknowledges every detail. He understands every one of our circumstances, even when we forget that he already knows where they will leads us. 

He is here, even when it feels like he seems far away or non-existent. 

He is with us, because his breath dwells within us and he loves us in every way. 

Some of the greatest gifts come from the moment that is in the present, in the smallest amount of grace, and a power far beyond our imagination!

God’s View 

The reward of humility [that is, having a realistic view of one’s importance] and the [reverent, worshipful] fear of the LORD Is riches, honor, and life.” – PROVERBS‬ ‭22:4‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Misbelief……..we all struggle with it.

Inadequate pieces of our heart…….we have those places too.

The enemy likes to mirror back a reflection onto our heart that represents his lie of deception. 

The truth is that no one looks at us the way God does. 

Isn’t it wonderful to know that God sees in us what we can’t see in ourself? 

He teaches us in his love. He sees beauty and we are his magnificent masterpiece.

Loving Reprimand

“Better is an open reprimand [of loving correction] Than love that is hidden.” ~ PROVERBS‬ ‭27:5‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Often times, when I am not looking above, or standing firm in the affirmations of my blessings, I can get caught up in the negative things that surround me.  

I forget that I have been chosen and created for more.

I can go after hidden love, the kind I’ll never see in things, or receive by human flesh. 

My mind is closed to the loving reproach of the Lord. I miss out, on an abundant life, one that should create a heart full in thankfulness. 

Yet, God in his magnificent power, seems to meet me despite the learning I’ve yet to accomplish. He doesn’t condemn me. He gently reminds me that it is an open mind that finds direction. 

It is from HIS heart where real love is deposited.

Baring His Beauty,

Reflection

“As in water face reflects face, So the heart of man reflects man.” – Proverbs 27:19 AMP

Today is a new day; it is the start to a new beginning of what can be.

 May you be richly blessed while being an example that is holy, in HIS reflection, demonstrating the essence of the creator.
