A Higher Love… #love

a higher loveI have always  loved that song by Steve Winwood!

Whenever I hear it, I turn it up..

And soak in every word!!

Maybe it’s because  those 5 words; Give Me A Higher Love, speak  to a hidden place in my heart that craves love, protection and mercy…

A love not based on what I do or don’t do..

Just love..

A love that softens my heart, melts my fears, and draws me to my knees ..

A love that protects, shelters and cradles my heart..

A blind love that sees deep in my soul, and never lets go…

A love that I can deeply..  truly depend on.

“Your goodness is so great!

You have stored up great blessings for those who honor You..

You have done so much for those who come to you for protection, blessing them before the watching world.

You hide them I the shelter of Your presence safe from those who conspire against them. 

You shelter them in Your presence far from accusing tongues…

Praise the Lord for He has shown me His unfailing love,  He has kept me safe when my city was under attack.  In sudden fear I cried out

“I have been cut off from the Lord”

But You heard my cry for mercy, and answered my call for help…”

Psalm 31 1-22

Oh, My Dear Heavenly Father, My Lord, and my Savior…

How I honor and praise Your Name

. You have cradled  my wandering heart and protected me from my fears…

Thank You for hiding me under Your wing, In Your presence and great shelter…

I stand in awe of who You truly are..

My God.  My Protector and shield…

Today I come before You, giving You my heart…

Thanking You for Your higher love that consumes my soul…

Oh, How I need You…

I give You my day, my hopes and my dreams…

Use my life to bring You praise…

In Jesus Name, I pray,


Live in Love,


The Lord watches over you – the Lord is your shade at your right hand..”

Psalm 121:  5

Ps.. I tried to attach the Youtube video of “A higher love”  but I couldn’t for some reason…

Look it up, and crank it up :)

Have a happy day!

A Home In Heaven… #trust

a home in heaven“I will praise You, Lord, for you have rescued me.  You refused to let my enemies triumph over me.”

Psalm 30:1-2

How I thank You, Oh Lord, for Your righteous right hand that covers my heart, and strengthens my knees…

“Oh, Lord, I cried out to you and You restored my heath.  You brought me up from the grave, Oh, Lord, You kept me from falling into the pit of death..”

Psalm 30: 2-3

My Abba, Father, my hearts melts with thankfulness, healing and hope… How I come before You fully  knowing, You, and You , alone; have restored my heart, and saved me from the pit of death.

You have prepared for me a home in heaven.

 With You…

Fearing the Floodwaters…? #foreverfaithful

fearing the flood watersFearing the floodwaters?

My heart aches with yours…

 Fearing that the dam is going to break at any moment.  Your heart is so super  heavy .. You just don’t have the strength to hold back the flood you fear is imminent…

Living under pressure and worry..

So life draining.

The Solution…

“The Lord rules over the floodwaters.  The Lord reigns as King forever.

The Lord gives strength to His people.

The Lord blesses them with peace…”

Psalm 29:10

Oh, Dear Lord, How I need your peace, and Your strength… Thank You for Your  sweet promises of hope.

I chose to come before you this very day, laying down my worry in exchange for Your goodness and grace..

Please, Father, fill me with Your hope, peace, and strength.  Quiet my heart and my thoughts, Oh Lord.  For You have been so good to me…

I raise my hands in honor of who You are.

My God and My king..

“Give honor to the Lord for the glory of His name.  Worship the Lord in the splendor of His holiness.”

Psalm 29:2

I am safe in Your arms, and protected from the floodwaters.  You are my great defender and lover of my soul…

Give me the courage to speak what is true.

May you walk before me, guiding my steps, and softening hearts…

May my day be filled with hope, and may other’s see the light of who You are through my eyes…

In Jesus Name,


Live in Love,


I rest in You…

“Trust Me”… #hope

trust me“No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him..”

1 Corinthians 2:9

Oh, how beautiful is that?

There is so much joy ahead…

Don’t give up in trusting His goodness.  His plan for your life.

Just keep doing the next thing, love Him, love others…

Your life matters.

People need hope. Love, and goodness…

Be the light, don’t give up :)

“Praise the Lord!  For He has heard my cry for mercy.  The Lord is my strength, my shield from every danger.  I trust in Him with all of my heart. 

He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy..

I burst out in songs of thanksgiving…”

Psalm 28:6-7

Dear Heavenly Father,

Good Morning… Thank you for another new beautiful day.

I come before you this morning wanting to surrender my thoughts and start anew in your presence…

My mind cries out to my heart, “Trust Him..”

Father I trust you..

May my days be filled with love.  Doing the next thing, and filled with joy knowing You have my life in Your hands.  No one can take that from me, and that makes me smile with so much thanksgiving!

Thank You for all that You have in store for me, may my life reflect all of that goodness…

In Jesus Name,


Live in Love,


“And God has actually given us His Spirit (Not the world’s spirit) so we can know the wonderful things God has freely given us.”

1 Corinthians 2:12

You can do it :)

Choose Hope… #hope

it's about God first blog“My heart has heard you say, “Come and talk with me.”

And my heart responds, “Lord, I am coming..”

Psalm  27:8

His voice so tender… So still. So quiet.

Do you crave His presence when you rise?

For me it started as an act of obedience…

I was a mess…

and as much as I used to HATE!

( I say hate instead of dislike, cause dislike would be sugar-coating it, and not truthful, and lying!! :/ LOL)

 that word… . the obedience word… 

( It even made my teeth grind… just saying!)

I have learned how much I needed to understand what it means to be obedient, and why obedience is so super important…”

(I truly can’t believe I just used “that “O”  word like 4 times!!)

For me.  Obedience came when I realized  I didn’t  like the person I was becoming  when I wasn’t  embedded in God’s word…

Embedded Definition…

v. verb
1. To fix firmly in a surrounding mass.
2. To enclose snugly or firmly.
3. To cause to be an integral part of a surrounding whole.
Notice.  Embedded is a verb.
An action…
Something you do.
I picture a little baby bunny embedding himself in the grass.. all comfy cozy :)
It takes some work getting his little body in the right place…
I went through a rough season of  “works“…
Amazing works…
I watched people’s lives being changed..
I watched people learn to trust God and be filled  with His Holiness and grace…
I got to be apart of the process.
It was good.
So good!
But.  During this amazing, and wonderful season,  Something else changed.  Me! I got busier and busier until I was completely depleted…
Not craving God’s presence or grace…
I started relying on my own energy and strength.
I was changing and not in a good way…
My times with God  became staggered… then all most none.
I was becoming emotional, and judgmental.
Confrontational: and justified in my feelings.
I could feel my peace in God slipping through my fingers…
I missed HIM…
I missed His encouragement…
His love..
His quiet whispers of hope…
As much as I loved watching people’s lived changed, I knew I was messed up!
I didn’t want to be the person I was becoming..
I knew the difference; and I knew why…
Doing anything out of Love for God is good… Always good..
But it’s so super important that your actions are an over flow from God’s presence in your life..
I walked away from what I was doing.
It was so not easy. I loved what I  was doing, and it was  fun.  I loved seeing lives changed…
But I missed my Savior so much more…
This is what obedience looks like to me…
“As Jesus and His disciples were on their way, He came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to Him.  She had a sister called Mary, who sate at the
Lord’s feet listening to what He said. 
But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made.  She came to Him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by
Tell her to help me!”
“Martha, Martha, the Lord answered, you are worried and upset about many things,
but only one thing is needed. 
Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her…”
Luke 10: 38-41
I have learned, and am still a work in the process, that obedience is doing the right thing and trusting God with the results…
I have heard the quiet whisper of God’s voice saying  that all He ever wanted was for me to be close to Him…
And He would do the rest…
Like Mary, I want to choose to sit at His feet, soak in His wonders.  His love.  His goodness and mercies…and leave the rest to Him…
Whose In?
Dear Heavenly Father, I want to be the person You know I can be… I need Your love running trough my veins…
Your truths penetrating my heart…
Forgive me for my busyness.  Help me to crave Your presence and peace..
I chose You.  First.
In Jesus Name,
I pray,
Live in Love,
Set aside a time each day to be close to Him :)
You wont me sorry!

Rest In His Security… #foreverfaithful

rest in his securityWhen  thoughts of doubt.. worry, or fear invade your heart…

When you are where you are,

and you can’t change what’s going on around you…

We need only to be still and breath in His amazing words of peace,  strength and power…

He has you cradled  in His sweet hands…

For He will conceal me there when troubles comes; He will hide me in His sanctuary. He will place me out of reach on a high rock..”

Psalm 27:5

There has been so many times in my walk with Jesus that I have heavily relied on those words..

I have visualized the storm raging all around my heart, felt His hands pick me u;p and place ever so high…

Away from all the turmoil and madness..

On top of that beautiful rock… In the open air, and gentle breezes…

That is where His peace surrounds…

He has never let me go..

The battles have raged on, but I have been safe in His holy sanctuary…

Oh, Dear Heavenly Father,

How I pray for my brothers and sisters.  May they be consumed by Your hand of goodness, and covered by Your great protection…

No matter what doubts or fears may be whispering to our hearts, may we find our refuge in You…

Not man.

Not friend.

Not mother or father…

Not worldly wisdom or advice.

But truly and wholly in You, Alone…

“The one thing I ask of the Lord-the thing I seek most-is to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life delighting in the Lord’s perfections and mediating in His Temple…”

Psalm 27:4

We come before You, this beautiful new day, Oh Lord, laying our burdens down, and resting in Your presence…

In Your sanctuary…

Help us to live in this day.. focused on the now.

Not the then, when or what ifs..

How we praise Your Holy Name for carrying the weight of those things that we just can’t change or hold on to..

We were called to live in freedom.. for freedom’s sake..

how amazing are, You, Dear Father!

Your love changes everything…

I love You,

In Jesus Name,


Live in Love,


“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.  Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.”
