Forever Faithful

For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.” Psalms 100:5 ESV

Our Lord is pleasing. He is our moment of opportunity and daily advantage.

God does not change who he is over something he feels or doesn’t feel. He is constant and unwavering.

For every sin, Jesus suffered death and yet our Lord remains glorious in life.

God loves beyond human imagination. He will always love because he can not exist by being something that he is not.

Our God is love.

He loves you. God loves who he created before you; He will continue to love those after you.

That is who our mighty father is.

Baring His Beauty,

Tiffany Thomas

Set Apart By Grace

You specialize in mending

and restoring hearts

Your love searches for the broken

The downtrodden

The wounded ones

Rejoicing over one lost soul

You pick us up

You clean us up

You turn our hearts back

to Yours

You search the gutters

The backstreets

The places no one

chooses to go

Your love stronger

than the powers of darkness

Lure every heart

No matter how dark they

have become

Into Your marvellous light

The wayward ones

The prodigals

The misfits

The ones beyond repair

You don’t care

Your love can do the impossible

Shine through the darkest

heart

You use our pasts

You use our pain

You use what the enemy

meant for our harm

To create the most beautiful

tapestries and work of art

In lives that were once consumed

by Darkness

Deep processes You put

Your set apart ones through

We huff and puff

We crawl and cry

We sometimes even dare

ask why?

Our pain turned into armour

Blinding the enemy as we

go higher

Our battle scars we wear

with honour

A reminder of our faithful Father

We reflect Papa’s heart in

all we do

We love Him more than life!

You marked us with

Your love

We are set apart by grace

Our lives a living sacrifice

To accomplish every dream

Papa has for us

You call us into Your

inner chambers

Where few chose to tread

For too long we were kept

in dungeons

Chained to painful pasts

The enemy held us hostage

He knew how courageous

we would be

When fear has lost its grip!

Too late, we know our worth!!

Death could not hold the One we

choose to adore!!

Death has lost his hold

on us!!

Emptied out

Dead to self

We chose to lay down

our lives!!

Love has won our hearts!

All for the Cause of Christ!!

The Journey

Hook Line And Sinker

This week the enemy was working a bit overtime trying to make me take the bait of offense.

Oh, I nibbled on it – more than once.

I had one thing / situation / or conversation after another that had me nibbling a bit on offense.

By Thursday, the last disappointment or discouragement that came my way had me ready to go full on Mr. Bean or run away from all people. I even told my husband that I was DONE WITH EVERYTHING! And EVERYONE!

He recognized I was just trying to tackle a bit too much in my own strength and that I am still good at times at stuffing my emotions so he suggested I take it to God and not out on him or anyone else.

That got me laughing and not more offended which was a good thing for him, so I made a choice.

I could stay pissed off or offended or I could praise. God told me years ago that I can’t do both – you gotta choose.

I chose to praise.

I praised – I blew my new shofar – I danced through my disappointments and together we prayed.

Instantly all the things that had me offended and pissed off all week melted away.

I was able to Forgive Release and Bless everything and everyone.

I decided also to trust that God’s ways are always higher than mine or others.

I can always take those stings of hurt and disappointments to Him instead of swallowing that nasty bait of offense hook line and sinker.

I hope you will too!
