Valentines Of Love

So what if today, in this month of hearts and roses, we could see all the promises of God, as valentines of love, spilling out from His vast abundance into our empty hands and hearts?

What if we could just catch them like light, falling stars and see the reality of them in the palms of our hands and depths of our souls? What if we could just grasp the reality of the promise that He who promised is faithful, both now and forever? What if we could do that and just look up into the heavens to see the sweetness of His faithfulness just falling upon us, surrounding us and sustaining us?

The writer of Hebrews exhorts us to faithfulness when in 10: 23 he pens the words,

“Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep His promise. Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works.”

So just maybe, as we step out today, in any way the shut down would allow, we could be challenged to hold on firmly to the hope of our hearts; that huge hope that transforms life because Christ’s death and resurrection effectively help us win a right relationship with God through salvation and forgiveness, so that every day of our lives, He is all we need to get through!

So many promises follow a saved soul, don’t they? Promises of unconditional love, protection, care, provision, vindication, strength, courage, help, preservation, healing, joy, peace, goodness, and blessing in abundance. Yeah, there are hard places where rough spots pursue, but we are winners in this race and as we look around we see those blessings keep spilling out and falling into our corners and we are blessed with so many of them!

We can know that He who promised is faithful all the time in every way. So, right now, look up and catch those hearts of love and promise, straight from the hands of the Father to you. Catch them! Grasp them! Hold them tight! Stand firmly on them and don’t waver then make every effort to share them, motivating and encouraging one another along! ❤❤❤

He’s In The Boat

 

So, on the upside of down today, it’s all ok. You know it is! Really, deep down you know it is! Sure, maybe a lot of downer stuff, snuffed out yesterday really good but there’s always an upside. Always something good in the bad. Always something positive in the negative. And always, always a lesson or two to learn from the stuff that went down, to make us better, not bitter.

Bitter poison vibes will seep into the very core of our spirit to plunge us into rapid ruin. So we don’t want to go there! Let’s not allow our downer disappointments to usher us into such desperate places! Today is a new day! So rest now! Rest in sweet places with your mind and let Jesus into the trouble and into the boat, much the same as He did in Matthew 8:23 – 27, when Matthew penned that old, familiar story of Jesus getting into the boat to start out across the lake with his disciples. Oh, you know it well.

“Suddenly a fierce storm struck the lake, with waves breaking into the boat. (What a downer!) But Jesus was sleeping. (What a downer!) The disciples woke Him up shouting, “Lord save us! We’re going to drown.”

Jesus said,

“Why are you afraid? You have so little faith.”

“Then He got up and rebuked the wind and the waves and suddenly there was a great calm.”

Wow, just like that, all the fearful, downer moments in that boat were brought to peace, when even the wind and the waves obeyed Him. When your downers make you desperate, cry to the Lord, as the disciples did in that little boat beaten against the waves and the odds and tossed into the winds. You can know He’s not really sleeping but standing by to give you a faith check and heap of help for your heap of trouble. He’s got your stuff, and He’s got your back! He’s in the boat, and all He needs from you is your sincere, child-like faith and trust in Him! So now, beautiful you, that really bad, downer day is placed into His very capable hands and even though it seems like He’s asleep in the trouble, you can know, He isn’t!

Set your faith loose in the storm and find better, not bitter.

So Safe

Sheltered in the arms of God; it’s a safe place to be. So when all rages wildly about you and your mind is doing whirling twirls in no kind of organized fashion, the place to be is quiet before the Lord and held tightly in His safekeeping ’til the quiet comes.

Humpty Dumpty

For all of your broken heart and weary, beautiful soul, there is healing in Jesus name.

So here you are, and you’ve has just done a Humpty – Dumpty off the wall and shattered into pieces, but yet, though shattered, there you stand, because life doesn’t go away just because does it? Oh, it’s you, but it’s not you, as you stare into the reality of that surreal nightmarish picture. How? Why? What? yeah all the questions track you down, but no answers beat you up, step on you and grind those already fragmented shards of life into the dirt.

All the king’s horses and all the king’s men can’t put you back together again. Can’t fix it! Can’t mend it! Can’t make it better! No, it can’t be repaired because it’s yours and no one could ever understand, not in a million years could anyone get it! Not now, not ever!

The Good news is, the King can! The One Sovereign King can do it! He’s got the broken pieces! He’s got the skills! He’s got the plan! He’s got the mercy! He’s got the grace! His life was broken too, so yours wouldn’t have to be. Because He was crushed for you, He’s got life for you! And while He holds you in those arms that carried His cross of death, He’s got you in those skilled hands that took the nails! Those same divine hands that healed the sick, and yeah that raised the dead to new life. He’s in the business of putting lives back together again. Reach out to Him! Get with His program and let Him teach you! Allow Him to work His custom plan from the ground up in your life! God’s words through His prophet, Isaiah, to a stubborn and rebellious people, are words for us today in Isaiah 48:17,

“This is what the LORD says, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel, I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is good for you and leads you along the paths you should follow.”

Although it’s a promise first spoken to Israel, It’s a relevant message for those of us travelling this journey of life in need of guidance and help along the way. For those of us who’ve done Humpty Dumpty’s off the wall. So, those broken pieces are fixable, our part is to simply and humbly bend down to pick them up and hand them over and let our Sovereign King do the transforming work in us!
