His Design

“Give me an understanding heart…”Psalm 119:34

“Covered with Your sunlit kisses;

Designed by Your purpose,

And not my futile wishes.”


“Give me an understanding heart so that I can passionately know and obey Your truth.” Psalm 119:34 TPT

Bridal View

Reservations cancelled and scheduled for another time and season.

In the midst of this storm we ride out together there is hope in our future.

 

“Today I thought Your plan involved a wedding in Virginia.

Family gathered, hugs and kisses, future commitment.

Instead You’ve revealed Yourself so clear.

“Draw into My Presence”

For I Am Your shelter, joy, and wedding feast,

Hope unlimited.”

 

“I will greatly rejoice in the LORD,

My soul shall be joyful in my God.

For He has clothed me with the garments of salvation,

He has covered me with the robe of righteousness,

As a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments,

And a bride adorns herself with her jewels.

As the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth,

So, the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth

Before all the nations.”

Isaiah 61:10-11 NKJV

The First Thing

“Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.” Proverbs 16:3 NIV

“Put God in charge of your work, then what you’ve planned will take place.” Proverbs 16:3 The Message

“The plans of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the LORD.” Proverbs 16:1 ESV

 

Mary Pondered – Maidservant

The definition for the Hebrew word Maidservant is to spread out…

“But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart.” Luke 2:19

First mention Maidservant #8198 shipchah (shif-khaw). Strong’s Concordance pg1992.

I wonder if Mary pondered, maindservant as to spread out, to stretch, to share what she as a family…the Good News.

Wings Restored

Enlargeth my territory,

Enlighten the skies.

Wings restored of brokenness

Darkness lifted, Spirit flies.

 

“He fills my life with good things, so that I stay young and strong like an eagle.” Psalm 103:5

Yet Unseen

There’s a significant difference between the place of in the middle and of caught in between.

One is the season of hope and waiting and the other of seeking the answer to the question yet unseen.

“For the vision is yet for an appointed time; but at the end it will speak, it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” Habakkuk 2:3 NKJV

But the just shall live by his faith,” Habakkuk 2:4 NKJV
