Babies-a creation and a gift

I believe that Babies are just that Babies at the time of conception.  The Bible states that God knit us together in the womb, with  a plan and a purpose.  I just came from Tam’s Inprogress , she has a powerful post today about Babies, aborted, miscarried… so sad how as a people we can be divided on this and call one a fetus and one a baby.  Then curse one and bless the other.

I am believing that the babies i have miscarried are in heaven with a loving God.  I believe HE had a plan for that miscarried child even if its to be with HIM and spared from the cruel world we call home. Maybe to teach us to trust HIM, lean on HIM, but not to pretend that it didn’t happen.  I do not agree with abortion, but i do know that some of us were not taught the wrong in it, and have been filled with the knowlege that its just a fetus, and i have the right to decide whats best for me.  This thinking is a lie, straight from the pit of hell..some of us bought it.

I know where alot of you stand on the issues of abortion. I have one question for those of you who are unforgiving to the women who has had abortions.  “Does the blood of Jesus wash away all sin, or just some?”  So many are covered by the blood of Jesus, the old is gone the new is come..They belong to heaven, their sin has been removed as far as the east is from the west, by our Creator.  Who can limit HIM?

If you can please go read the post that inspired my heart to write today, Inprogress (love her, she is my sister in Christ, and very dear friend)

Overwhelmed, in Awe

Sitting here before the LORD, and wondering what makes the Almighty Creator of all things give attention to my trivial every day life? I am grateful that HE does, and no doubt He has been showing off lots lately.

After a year of praying for my man to get a different job and to find a church family, God has provided both.  The new job starts in March, and in March a new opportunity to lead women has also opened.  Finding my heart and mind flat before the LORD…There comes a time in knowing Him that there is no words for what He does, and words are few….

In my human mind, i can not comprehend what HE is doing, or why He would want to save me from my past.  There will never be a day that i will be able to repay Him, and my surrender to HIS love for me is all that He is asking.  He wants all my dreary, shame-filled life in return for His everything..HE wants to be my everything..HE wants me to love Him with all my heart, soul, mind and strength.  He lifts my head in front of HIS other children, and I become broken.  He sings over me, He watches over me 24/7, my praise causes Him to dance over me, and at this very moment, i sense He is smiling and telling the Son, ” thats my girl, she believes me today”.

Look What God Has Done

I truly have been blessed beyond measure, and so have you. But we do have to look for it. Acknowledge that all good things come from God.

I started blogging while in a pit, and asking for accountability and desire to know HIM more and love HIM more…HE answers those kind of prayers..not as we might think, but as HE sees beneficial to us.

Posting some pics here of the blessings HE has given me the last couple of weeks! People who have fanned the fire of my soul, friendships that will last an eternity, and a safe place to bare my soul. Thank you God for your provisions!

National Day of Prayer

Did you have a celebration in your area for the National Day of Prayer? We always do  here in PA, corporate prayer, speaker, music…tons of people, and family friendly as well.  This year was no exception, well except for that Beth Moore was our speaker, and Travis was our worship leader…I don’t need to tell you that GOD was huge in that place!  I know HE is huge everywhere, but i don’t always sense that..and this time I did!

I will post some pics later today or tomorrow, I am really pressed for time right now, but just had to share with you!! So excited today about what God is going to do as a result of our prayers.  It rained here saturday, sunday, monday, tuesday, wednesday, thursday morning..and then it stopped, and turned into the most beautiful spring day over and around the NDP ampitheater, and the ground was not muddy…amazing! God is totally about HIS children praying!

Of all the things I could quote from yesterday this one is still my favorite this morning… “take heart, GOD is not on vacation”….first you laugh, and then it sets in, and wow! what a thought to keep front and center.  (BTW-no more whining about my hug and kiss…I so got it!! hahaha i do love my MamaBeth!)

Taking Some Ground, In JESUS name!

This morning was like any other Saturday morning, heading out to get food for hungry growing children!  In the car stereo, was Travis Cottrell~Unashamed Love. Of course, it needed to go UP! LOUDER!  in a matter of moments he escorted me right into the throne room, where I needed to be so desperately. More than I knew.  As Worship just filled my Saturn, the presence of the LORD was strong.  Been wondering lately, how does one love so deeply the LORD, and over time it seems to become natural.  HE is so NOT natural, HE is supernatural, there is no way that we should ever just stop jumping up and down over what HE has done and is doing.

The last few years, we have been through some things that only God can save us from. And save us HE did. But the scars have been deep, and on occasion painfully reminding.  We have come through Immorality/pornography, miscarriages, and a broken family to a whole family. God has moved in ways that are incomprehensible, and still knowing that HE has done these things.  I don’t know what you have been through, but I know when God moves HIS hand and saves you…you just can’t shut up about it! This is where the enemy put me in bondage again…

God moved on my heart to teach women, and I did for several years.  I live in a area where religious Bible teaching is prominent. Once they hear my testimony of where I have been and what Jesus has saved me from, the shots begin.  Some how, the enemy used them to sit me down, to lower my hands in praise, and to believe that I should just be happy that God has brought me into HIS family, but there really is no place among them.  How I tried to become part of one family after another, and the same thing happened again..

After months of no worshipping any where, God lead me Lifes Changed by Christ. Amazing.  Still there has been this darkness lurking around me..part of the legalism that bound me raced through my mind..”there is unrepentant sin..this is as good as it gets,..just be glad you have been saved from hell…no one wants to hear you…”  While pondering these things I have decided….

God will speak to my heart about what is wrong, as long as i keep my heart open to HIM! I did need some repentance, seems that I have been angry with GOD for bringing out of all the abuse in my life to abuse me again in Jesus name…

Then it happened! my worship, my freedom from the legalistic bonds that were trying to suffocate me. HE did not save me from the pit to sit me in the back seat or to allow self righteous people to make me hang my head yet again. NO that is not my GOD, and IN JESUS NAME, I am taking back the ground that my DADDY gave to me..Thank you Jesus for breaking through again and again.. Thank you for Beth Moore who taught me your Truth, and how to look into it my self, and thank you for Travis who taught me how to sing your praises from my heart.

Things R Not Necessarily as they Appear

I love some Old Testament! These are the books that show our Gods power and might, and faithfulness to those who BELIEVE HIM, and are busy about HIS work. HE is the same today, tomorrow, forever..I do believe this!  As the LORD brought me upon this section of scripture last night, I saw many many world issues we face today, not much different than this time period. I looked at the fear of the servant of Elisha, and we resemble him.  Fear in what is around us, and what appears to have taken control.  And I must tell you..things are not necessarily as the appear.  You  see, my GOD is in control, and although things may not unfold the way I want them to, it doesn’t change not one thing about HIM.  I love that knowledge! If we could see the war in the heavenlies all around us, how different would it be…I think it would change everything! But we walk by faith and not by sight…this I know..but maybe we do not ask for the right things, and then Believe it, without reservation…why? fear..Fear not for the LORD is with you!  I needed this, and thought I would share..

 

II Kings 6:15-19

15 When the servant of the man of God rose early in the morning and went out, behold, an army with horses and chariots was all around the city. And the servant said, “Alas, my master! What shall we do?” 16 He said, “Do not be afraid, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” 17 Then Elisha prayed and said, “O Lord, please open his eyes that he may see.” So the Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw, and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. 18 And when the Syrians came down against him, Elisha prayed to the Lord and said, “Please strike this people with blindness.” So he struck them with blindness in accordance with the prayer of Elisha. 19 And Elisha said to them, “This is not the way, and this is not the city. Follow me, and I will bring you to the man whom you seek.” And he led them to Samaria.

This is the legacy I hand down to my children…you see, this same GOD/Yahweh, is also my ABBA/Daddy, I refuse to walk in fear, and I refuse to let my children think for one minute that their GOD is less than what the Bible says HE is..as a believer this is part of your legacy/family treasure..believe it, then pass it on…(we do have a rich heritage in Christ!)
