The Meeting

He’s asking for you.

Opening where I left off, seeking to hear His voice, I happened upon Lazarus in his tomb.

“So when Mary heard this, she quickly went to find Him, for Jesus was lingering outside the village at the same spot where Martha…” John 11:29 TPT

-Stop-

Hearing Him speak directly to me,

‘the same spot where Martha left Him’.

Lord, where did I leave You?

Did my “Martha” and all her busyness inside “the village” concerned with the many details of work, and service, forget where I met with You last?

Was it in the quiet of summer past?

Have the days and months become one empty vat?

Where did I meet with You last?

Call forth the one who sleeps!

Awaken my ears and heart to beat.

Lazarus, come out!

“The Master is here and He’s asking for you.” John 11:28 TPT

“When Mary found Jesus…she fell at His feet in tears and said, “Lord”.

John 11:32 TPT

Lazarus, the one who God aids.

“And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:13 NKJV

He’s asking for you.

Dream and Play

“Waking to Your sunshine,

The rising of the day.

Giving glory to our Creator,

For in Christ,

We live, dream and play.”


“For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on the earth… All things were created through Him and for Him.” Colossians 1:16 NKJV

Prepared

“Nourish Up!

Revive me according to Your Word,”

Promised life,

Your best is yet reserved.”


“The Kingdom of heaven is like a certain king who arranged a marriage for his son and sent out his servants to call those who were invited to the wedding; and they were not willing to come.

“Again, he sent out other servants, saying, ‘Tell those who are invited, “See, I have prepared my dinner…and all things are ready.

Come to the wedding.”’

Matthew 22:1-4 NKJV


“Revive me according to Your word…

Revive me, O LORD, according to Your lovingkindness.”

Psalm 119:154 & 159 NKJV

Unto You

“Anoint my hand

In the things of You.

Protect my feet

As I walk it through.


Bless my thoughts with

Your Word Divine.

“Holy unto You”

According to

Your plans

Not mine.”


“A woman came to Him having an alabaster flask of very costly fragrant oil…” Matthew 26:7 NKJV

Bridal Hour

“Come out of your glass box,

Too long you’ve been concealed.

Pickup your shield of faith,

Remove your bridal veil!


Slip on your shoes peace,

Declare the Spirit’s Truth.

Walk in your Kingdom Power,

Arise!

This is the Bridal hour!”

“Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day…above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darks of the wicked one.” Ephesians 6:13&16 NKJV

Song in the Wind

“All writing is in a sense a prayer – a sending out of hope, a thanksgiving, a celebration, a song sent into the wind that we hope someone will hear.” Quote by Georgia Heard


Writing the words scored on our hearts happens for me in the quiet places of life. In the uninterrupted times when the house is asleep or the rare days of gardening outside in the light.

Raking pass the clutter of the “to do’s”…


Stepping into the ideas, dreams and stories my heart longs to share.

Cutting away the weeds of negativity…


Not listening to the trash talk, “Your not good enough,” or “No one else will care to read.”


“Weeds were wrapped around my head.” Jonah 2:5

Uncovering a nugget of truth.


It takes persistence to break open the time…


Once opened, beauty blooms upward toward the light renewing the passion planted deep inside one’s soul.


“In hope believed.” Romans 4:18


Let it not be said of me, she didn’t find the time to write, to embrace her destiny for if she passes by her heart’s desire as “…a song sent into the wind…”

“I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out.” Luke 19:40 NKJV


“Blessed is she who believed, for there will be a fulfillment of those things which were told her from the Lord.” Luke 1:45 NKJV


“Like an open book, You watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before You, The days of my life all prepared before I’d even lived one day.” Psalm 139:15 TM

Perfect in One

You are the storm,

You are the Sea.

You are the One Who rescues me.

At Your word mountains move.

In the sound of Your voice Peace is heard.

Declaring Your love with the rising of the Son.

I live, breath and walk to be with You as One.

“I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me”

John 17:23 NKJV

“You live fully in Me and now I live fully in them so that they will experience perfect unity.”

John 17:23 TPT

Warrior Word

Let the Bridegroom leave His room,

It’s Prophecy’s hour,

In Kingdom Power.

Unsheathe the sword,

You warrior word.

His Bride is here.

Relationship draws near.

Give their full yield.” Joel 2:22 ESV

And the Bride her chamber.” Joel 2:16 ESV

Be Still

“When I awake.”

 

Silencing the sounds.

Peace embraces.

Holy Quiet surrounds.

 

“He will quiet you with His love.” Zephaniah 3:17 NKJV

 

“How precious also are Your thoughts to me, Oh God!

When I awake, I am still with You.” Psalm 139:17-18 NKJV
