Thanksgiving Joy!

…and through the wild storms of life…

Happy Thanksgiving!

Remembering His mercies are new every morning and “He remembers His covenant forever.” Psalm 105:8 NKJV

Raising a banner of thankfulness for our Country and God’s faithfulness to our Forefathers and His promise to our children.

As for my family, today we celebrate and reclaim what was lost through a wild August rain storm. My desktop computer, although not on was plugged into the electrical outlet. The forecast proclaimed sunshine for the day, but none the less, the thunder and lighting came. Striking the house and taking my desktop computer as prey.

The photograph captured is of my son walking our land in liberty and freedom to proclaim God’s Faithfulness to remember His promises and covenant forever!

Restoration and Thanksgiving today, and through the wild storms of life, to know He will not forsake or forget His promises today or forever!

May you and your families be blessed in His rest today and always.

Thankful for a place to share my heart,

Denise and family

The Fire to Turn the Heart

My Dad and I
My Dad and I

“And he will turn the hearts of the fathers

 to their children and the hearts of the children

 to their fathers…” Malachi 4:16 (ESV)

 

I’m perplexed, daily,

by this last verse in the Old Testament.

“…to turn the hearts of the fathers to their children…”

How is this accomplished Lord? 


 

I was blessed with a wonderful earthly father

whose heart was always

turned toward me.

Even when I needed a beating

for making a wrong choice or

heading down the path of destruction.

In his love and attention,

I always knew his heart was for me.

His life choices reflected this truth

I felt it in my heart.


 

2015-12-19 Hearts turned - door

Daily I see,

Children who once came through

the open school door

happy and smiling.

Now enter,

as dead men,

with rattling chains

and bones.

 

When a passing smile in the hallway,

brought joy and a smile in return from theirs.

Now, a trip to the Office for a “belly ache”

and a tear of truth no band aide,

or remedy can cure.

 

“He will turn the father’s hearts to the children.”


 

Lord, we need Your Holy Spirit more and more.

Draw them Lord,

Lead them home,

Fetch their wandering eyes,

And bring their fathers home.

 

The hearts of Your children are broken.

Sadden by the choices their parents do make.

In this season of joy and gladness,

You are the Miracle it takes!

 

No hug or smile will bind the wounds

Too deep to aide or cover.

Lord, I’m asking You restore,

Repair,

and return their parents,

One to Love each other.

 

May Your Holy Spirit burn brighter

Than any Christmas tree,

As You heal the hearts of

Your children, and

Return their fathers

To Thee.”

 

Come home


 

What’s the answer Lord?

New Testament Scripture Truth: (Same Scripture as Malachi 4:16) 

“And he (speaking John his name means Grace in Hebrew)

…and he will go before Him (speaking of Jesus) in the

Spirit and power of Elijah (Grace)

To turn the hearts of the fathers to

The children…”Luke 1:16-17 (ESV)

John’s first words to the people,

“I baptize you with water,

 but He Who is mightier than I is coming

…He will baptizing you

 with the Holy Spirit

 and fire.” Luke 3:16 (ESV)


Life truth:

It takes the Grace of Christ,

And the Power of His Holy Spirit

To “turn” and change the

Hearts of men and women

To their children.

Jesus is the Miracle

Of this Season,

The Light, Truth and Power

Beyond ALL of man’s reason!

God bless and may there be

Joy, healing and

Restoration

as

Hearts “turn” to the

Father.

In Jesus Name.

Amen
