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

Revelation to See

“In the Valley of Vision I heard You speak to me. “Open the eyes of your spirit and there you will see.”


‘The burden against the Valley of Vision.” Isaiah 22:1 NKJV

The Passion Translation says it this way, “A prophecy concerning “The Valley of Vision”. What’s happening with you?” Isaiah 22:1 TPT

“What’s happening with you?”


I was definitely the Proverbial “deer in a headlight” when I read this sentence.

Lord, how can one see in a Valley? The question His Word posed, “What’s happening with you?” is one I have asked Him and myself for months now. What is happening with me?

Vision in the Strong’s Concordance is the number 2384. Chizzayown – it’s meaning is a dream or revelation. I knew God was trying to get my attention, and answer the question I’ve been pondering in my heart for months. “What’s happening to me?”

Revelation. Open up the eyes of my spirit. Put aside my flesh or the popular “how do you feel” and listen to what He is showing me.

I’ve been carrying a “burden” in my heart for almost a year. It’s time to reclaim my purpose and get on with His plans for me in life.

Revelation light. I’ve been grieving and it’s time to heal.


I picked up my camera for the first time in a very long time with vision to see. “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and staff, they comfort me.” Psalm 23:4 NKJV

I’m thankful for a Savior who in the Valley has never, no not ever, lost sight of me. I pray today if you have found yourself carrying a burden of heart to lay it down at the feet of the Cross of Jesus Christ for He will comfort you.  Allow His revelation light (His Word) guide you to His purpose for your life. In Jesus Mighty Name. Amen🙏


blessings, denise

Good Hope

“Where are the promises of Your song?

They seem to be distant like a long ago storm.

Remembered in name but gone all the same;

Where are the notes of Your horn?”


“Glory to God in the highest realms of heaven!

For there is peace and a good hope given to the sons of men.”


“When the choir of angels disappeared and returned to heaven, the shepherds said to one another,

“Let’s go! Let’s hurray and find this Word who is born in Bethlehem and see for ourselves what the LORD has revealed to us.” Luke 2:14-15 TPT




“You are wearied in the length of your way; yet you did not say, ‘There is no hope.’ You have found the life of your hand; therefore you were not grieved.” Isaiah 57:10 NKJV


“I created the fruit of the lips, “Peace, peace to him who is far off and to him who is near.” says the Lord, “And I will heal him.” Isaiah 57:19 NKJV

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

He Healed Them All – Last in the Series of Walking about Capernaum

I know on any given day it is next to impossible for me to stop by and visit with each of my WordPress neighbors. The confines of life and time prevent even the most willing of reader and neighbor from doing so. Then there was Jesus.

Two thousand year ago, in His first recorded miracle of changing the water to wine at the wedding in Cana, stepped into Capernaum. Jesus, our Bridegroom, steps into our lives to do the same today. Jesus path to our door. Touching our lives, health, homes, relationships with His miracles of refreshing joyous life, even when our “jars” have gone dry and all hope is lost.

Cana Wedding – Jars displayed in Church located on the site of Jesus first miracle.

Cana Stone Water Jar.

Oh, the marriage supper of the Lamb and His Bride.

“…for He has covered me with the robe of righteousness…and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.” Isaiah 61:10

Jesus, drawing all people to Himself to raise the dead, heal, touch, embrace, change lives, give new direction, and touch hearts.  Jesus of Capernaum.  Jesus the same yesterday, today and forevermore.

God Bless and Shalom!

 

“Let us rejoice and exult and give Him glory,

For the marriage of the Lamb has come, and

His Bride has made herself ready…

Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.”

Revelation 19:6-9 (ESV)

 

“Come to Me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and

I will give your rest.” Matthew 11:28 (ESV)

His Garment Sweep – The Woman on the Street – Capernaum Part Seven “4”

The last of The Woman on the Street of our walk about the neighborhood of Capernaum.

This poem was written when I woke one morning after a dream where I was missing “teeth”. Feeling a bit down, I ponder the dream and its meaning in the midst of writing this mini series of Jesus going about the neighborhood of Capernaum.

Once again, thank you my WP neighbors for always welcoming a fellow neighbor back…even if we are missing a “tooth” or two.

“Right here on “Joyless” street;

There’s a hole in the smile of all my things neat.”

Reaching to touch His garment sweep.

The “blue” was from the cerulean mussel, the rare color was used to dye the tassels. This prayer shawl is an example only of what the “woman” would have been reaching to touch on Jesus’s hem.

From sickness to health;

Darkness to Light;

From everything wrong,

To everything right.

 

At the place where

He turned my smile to bright!

Healing is found in

His wings were we meet,

Between “Joyless” and

“Joyful” Street!”

 

 “The Sun of Righteousness shall arise

With healing in His wings…”

Malachi 4:3 NKJV

Touch Him– The Woman on the Street – Capernaum Part Seven “3”

“For she said to herself,

“If only I may touch His garment, I shall be made well.”

But Jesus turned around,

And when He saw her He said,

“Be of good cheer, daughter;

Your faith has made you well.”

 

Jesus knowing,

She hadn’t been touched in twelve years,

She had nothing left to live on or for,

She was far from her home,

Wandering Alone,

Looking for healing,

But she heard the name of Jesus.

 

Turning around,

Jesus

Looking into her eyes,

Called her “Daughter”.

 

I don’t know if I’ve heard a more beautiful story of healing love.

 

“And the woman was made well from that hour.”

Matthew 9:21-22 (NKJV)

 

The Woman on the Street – Part Seven of Capernaum by the Sea “2”

“But as He went, the multitudes thronged Him.

Now a woman, having a flow of blood for twelve years,

Who had spent all her livelihood on physicians and

Could not be healed by any,

Came from behind and

Touched the border of His garment.”

Luke 8:43-44 (NKJV)

The “blue” was from the cerulean mussel, the rare color was used to dye the tassels. This prayer shawl is an example only of what the “woman” would have been reaching to touch on Jesus’s hem.

“You number my wanderings;

Put my tears into Your bottle;

Are they not in Your book?”

Psalm 56:8 NKJV

 

I love how Jesus was right within her reach.

What an encouragement to know,

He meets us right where we are;

Often not in our four walled houses,

But in the midst of our wanderings.

“Are they not in Your Book?” Psalm 56:8 NKJV

Having Heard – The Woman on the Street – Capernaum Part Seven “1

It has taken me two weeks to mull over the story of the Woman on the Street of Capernaum. I hope you don’t mind joining me  for a day or two as we watching her miracle unfold.

Would the woman with the “issue of blood” having heard about Jesus, used her last coins to go by boat to Capernaum?

Located on the other side of the Lake from Capernaum, is the City of Tiberias, a major Roman town known for its warm springs used for healing. Did she hear about Jesus there? Could she have used the last of her coins to pay the entrance tax to look for the Man in Capernaum?

Could someone have told her whose house He was staying, or did she just follow the crowds while she walked the streets of Capernaum.

 

“When she heard about Jesus, she came behind Him in the crowd and touched His garment.” Mark 5:27 (NKJV)

Jesus would have worn something similar to this as His prayer shawl. The tassels is also known as the “wing” as in Malachi 4:2 “healing in its wings.”

Breaking the Law, she pressed in to touch the hem of His garment, Jesus turning spoke the words she longed to hear…

The Door of Healing – Capernaum Part Five

Healing came through The Door when Jesus entered Peter’s house.

View of the Synagogue from Peter’s house.

After leaving the synagogue on Sabbath, Jesus’ path took Him right to Peter’s mother-in-law in her time of need. Jesus reached out His hand, “and lifted her up”, and “immediately the fever left her.”(Mark 1:31)

Excavated walls of Peter’s house.

Church with a “clear” floor for viewing built above the walls of Peter’s house.

Peter’s house is located within a short walking distance of the synagogue.

Restoring Oil

“The pain subsides,

In passing time.

New day dawns,

Restores the oil.”

 

“Therefore we do not lose heart.

Even though our outward man is perishing,

Yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.”

2 Corinthians 4:16 NKJV

Recovering Tears

DSCN8418

“To recover at

Your feet Lord.

Tears held back,

Feel so sweet.

Let them flow,

Let them flow.

My broken heart

Only You do know.

Recovering at Jesus’ feet.

For He loves much.”

 

“…and she began to wash His feet with her tears.” Luke 7:36 NKJV
