Bride Arise!

“Prophecy to come; on bended knee.

Future bright; my spirit sees.

Fulfillment of Your Word is True;

Multitudes upon multitudes put their faith in You.

For out of the ashes Your Bride does Arise;

Holy Ghost fire on her resides!

Quicken the spirit;

Sharpen the sword,

For Jesus Christ is coming!

Our Saving Lord!


“And after these things I heard a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, “Alleluia! Salvation and glory and honor and power belong to the Lord our God!” Revelation 19:1 NKJV


Now I saw heaven opened and behold a white horse.

And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True,

And in righteousness He judges and makes war…

And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine line,

White and clean, followed Him on white horses.”

Revelation 19:11 & 14 NKJV

Whisper’s Scent

“Fragrant friend,

I’ll see you again.

After the snow and the winter winds end.

I’ll muse on your beauty; morning’s pink glow,

While the north wind’s howl, and the season’s blow.

Lightest of fragrance will beckon again;

To remember the whisper of my friend’s heaven scent.”

“The fragrance of their flowers whispers,

“There is a change in the air.”

Song of Solomon 2:13 TPT


We planted this antique rose over 25 years ago. Faithful to bloom in drought conditions and all seasons. Cuttings from antique roses are known to be gathered from abandoned homesteads, forgotten cemeteries, and wayside roads.

Blessings for a fragrant day,

Denise

Joyous Day!


“Frost on the pane;

Colors have changed.

Winter soon here;

Deer drawing near.

Leaves blow their way;

Joyous Thanksgiving Day!”


“Let us come before His presence with Thanksgiving;

Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.”

Psalm 95:2 NKJV


Our first cold morning. Blowing winds reminding the seasons are in change.

Blessings to you and your family this Thanksgiving Day!

Peaceful Heart

“Thank You Lord for Your faithfulness;

Yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Let me not borrow pain;

Nor be another’s sorrow.

Thank You for reminding me,

Even when I sleep,

You’re looking out for all my ways,

And in Your health You’ll keep.

Fix my eyes on Your plans;

Peaceful heart and stable land.

Assured You speak the best to me,

For in Christ Jesus,

I’m truly free!”


“You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You;

Because he trust in You.”

Isaiah 26:3 NKJV

Home healing from the change of seasons winds.

May you and your household be in perfect peace, and health today.

Blessings,

Denise

Thankful Goodness

“My heart is filled with wonder, a good and pleasant theme.

Thanksgiving to my Savior, Who never, no, not once, forgot or abandoned me.

Thankful for His goodness, drawing me each day.

His beauty seen in nature; for He is the only way.

Sunrises on the morning,

Light in rainy days,

Protection when darkness hovers,

Correction when I’ve lost my way.

I’m thankful for Your Presence,

Immanuel with me.

For in Your Peace and Kindness,

My heart sings out to Thee!”


I will worship You, Yahweh, with extended hands as my heart erupts with praise!

I will tell everyone everywhere about Your wonderful works!

I will be glad and shout in triumph.

I will sing praise to Your exalted name, O Most High.”

Psalm 9:1&2 The Passion Translation


My family and I are celebrating Thanksgiving today as it is my son’s day off from work.

Blessings to you and your family as we embrace this week of Thanksgiving!

See Praise!

“Swaying whisps chorus Your Name.

Sunlit leaves echo refrains.”


“Let the skies sing for joy!

Let the earth join in the chorus…

Until every swaying tree of every forest join in,

Lifting up their songs of joyous praise to Him!”

Psalm 96:11-12 The Passion Translation


“And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.” Isaiah 55:12 NKJV

In Honor of Veteran’s Day

“America,

My Father’s pride.

Oh, how he loved to serve by your side.

Fathers, Sons, and Daughters too,

Laid their lives down to fight for you.

If truth be told, they’d tell you so,

If called to arms, they’d willingly go.

The proud, the strong, integrity bound,

In serving you,

America was found.”


Honoring my Dad, who served in WWII in Germany. May we never forget the sacrifices our Veteran’s made and continue to make every day for our freedom.


As for me and my household, we will never forget you!

May God Bless America and all those who serve her.

Denise

Steps Entwined

“Your promise to the hearing heart;

Entwining threads of hope to start “


“He did not waiver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthen in faith, giving Glory to God.” Romans 4:20 NKJV


Beginning each day with little steps of faith entwined to the One who knows our hearts.


“So now wrap your heart tightly around the hope that lives within us, knowing that God always keeps His promises!” Hebrews 10:23 The Passion Translation

Not Afraid

Good morning Lord,

Thank You for this day.

You set it all in place; You planned it this way.

Glorify Your Son. Let the people call upon His Name!

For in Christ Jesus, we are redeemed and forever changed!


“I am Yahweh, Your Mighty God!

I grip your right hand and won’t let you go!

I whisper to you; ‘Don’t be afraid, I am here to help you!”

Isaiah 41:13 The Passion Translation


Stepping into a new day, and week holding on to the One who reminds me, “Do not be Afraid.”

Blessings,

Denise

His Unfolding Joy

“When viewed from the perspective of Scripture, history is more than the recording of the events of the past. Rather, what has happened in the past, what is happening now, and what will happen in the future is all evidence of the unfolding of the purposeful plan devised by the personal God of the Bible.

“All circumstances of life – past, present, and future – fit into the sovereign plan of God like pieces of a puzzle.”

Quote by Robert Lightner, theologian, Dallas Theological Seminary


“Then Abraham lifted his eyes and looked, and there behind him was a ram caught in a thicket by it’s horns.” Genesis 22:13 NKJV

Reading this verse, I have heard it taught, and believe, that “Isaac” and the “ram” are both pictures or shadows of Jesus Christ. (The Son and the sacrifice).

“…you have not withheld your son, your only son, from Me.” Genesis 22:12 NKJV

“And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” Matthew 3:17 NJKV

Reading further, my eyes landed on the words in verse 23 of the 24 verses in Genesis 22.

“And Bethuel begot Rebekah. These eight Milcah bore to Nahor, Abraham’s brother.” Genesis 22:23 NJKV


STOP. “Lord, why would Holy Spirit choose to finish one of the most important chapter’s in Scripture, Abraham offering up his son Isaac, with telling us how many children Abraham’s brother Nahor had?”

“Look again.” I heard Him speak to me.


“Then Abraham lifted his eyes and looked,”

Rebekah!” “LORD, Abraham saw Rebekah in the future! Isaac, his beloved son, married Rebekah, who bore Jacob, who bore the twelve sons, who bore David, who bore Jesus!”

Rebekah is the Bride!” The Bride! Abraham saw the Church, the Bride of Christ!”


This revelation changed everything for me. It deepened the significance of the love Christ has for us, His Church. Jesus saw us from the beginning. He, “lifted his eyes” and saw His Bride. The cross “behind him,” and His Bride in the future. We are in Chapter 22 of Genesis ❤️


The Bride, Jesus willingly offered up His life for His Bride.

“Looking into Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame…”Hebrews 12:2 NKJV

Jesus, yesterday, today and forevermore! “The sovereign plan of God. “

“I am by Beloved’s, and His desire is towards me.”Song of Solomon 7:10 NKJV
