“You aren’t crazy. You aren’t crazy, you aren’t backslid and you aren’t alone. I have surrounded you with a tribe of those who have come out of the status quo and stepped into the chaos from which My kingdom arises and is established. Men around you may not understand. Those in your path may point you the other way, because they do not understand the mandate of heaven that drives you forward. Keep pressing into the pressure. Keep moving against the forces of darkness that would plow you under and leave you in a place of stagnation and death. This is your hour. This is that moment in your life that changes the whole circumstance and situation. Keep trusting. Keep walking in love. Refuse to war with natural weapons, but rather war with the armament of a life poured out like a drink offering unto Me.
I know the way that you take. I know you hold yourself responsible for many missteps and shortcomings. Realize that even though you felt gullible and foolish, that My perfection was still working in you to bring forth My perfect will. Those that took advantage of you and lied to you will be dealt with. They will not prosper in the things that they have purposed to do. Leave them to Me. Do what you can with what is in front of you and leave the rest go. Refuse to sit in the tombs of past regret, cutting yourself with the shards of self-recrimination. Forgive others and forgive yourself. Move on. Receive the peace that passes understanding. Receive the peace that doesn’t make sense right now but will keep you and bring you into the rest from which all transformation takes place. I hold you in the palm of My hand. I am working both to will and to do My good pleasure. You will see of the travail of your soul and be satisfied.” – Father’s Heart Ministry
This word went off in me this morning. Boy if it isn’t my story I don’t know what is. And I am willing to bet many of yours too.
We have to fight our way out of the cobwebs we get so tangled in-
Of our own making & sometimes by falling into another’s unaware.
I am so thankful that even when we make the biggest of messes or when we so misjudge something we thought was right for us that God is still right there – to rescue us, to teach us & to hold us through it – clear to the other side.
Our Redeemer lives.
I could just bawl thinking on His great love for me. For us all.
It washes us clean
Makes us new
And whole –
And lifts us up, beyond the barbed confines of ourselves.
We praise You above all things for it’s in & through You that we have our being. In & through You that have worth & value
And So. Much. Love.
All because of You, Our Daddy.
Rejoice y’all – He is Our King & Our Everything,
