Decided to repost this from 2009, as the message is incredible, and seems we need to be reminded often. We are not guilty anymore, Mercy is ours!
This is something that has plagued me for many years,..about the time I believe I am walking in the blessing and feeling redeemed, forgiven, and restored..
In my Face! always wondering, how could that have come back to me again in a such a crippling way..When we believe God, have repented, HE promises to take it away as far as the east is from the west, never to belong to us again..we are Free from the past…we are certainly not guilty anymore..I needed this video, and thought maybe you do too..
Not Guilty Anymore-AaronKeyes
I don’t know if anyone else needs this today..but i do!
Princess, stand in Awe (previously posted in 2008 on my blogspot…before moving here..)
We leave the radio on in the kitchen always, I am not sure why we do that except maybe the dog needs company and is confined to the kitchen. 🙂 It is always on a Christian Contemporary Radio station, so this morning while in search for my coffee, it spoke to my heart. “Stand in Awe and worship, come adore, King of kings and Lord of lords”. Praying this morning for a heart that will constantly stand in Awe of my Awesome God. The world just pulls us in so many different directions, and the negative seems to out weigh the postive most days, but the focus is to stand in Awe and worship! Music ministers to my soul in great proportions, and I do thank HIM for giving me song in my heart, and praise on my lips. GOD is so very good to me and I am so undeserving of anything. I love that most about HIM this morning. God is happy with God, and therefore it pleases HIM to call me HIS own, to adopt me into HIS family, and to put my feet on solid ground.
I spoke of the out reach in earlier posts, and wanting to start with the children in my area. I have stressed over boards in the church, I have stressed over prayer support…and this morning I am repentant for unbelief. What I felt was the first step proved to be no step…hahaha God totally opened the door, and all we had to do was walk through it! Prayer support-God provided in my siesta sistas, dollas, diva princess’. I saw with my own eyes yesterday the power of your prayers, and I thank you for interceeding on our behalf. I love how the whole thing works, although I don’t understand it and don’t think I want to…I think I would rather stand in Awe and worship our Father of Unfailing Love, who does not send us with out HIS own plan in place. HE does not fail us!
My King, Yahweh, Abba,
It is a gift just to stand in Awe and worship You. In all your power and beauty, I am overwhelmed in the fact that You move Heaven and Earth on our behalf. “who is man that you would be mindful of him”…thank you that you are so very detailed in our lives. Forgive my foolishness and unbelief, if there is any pride in me, please bring it in my face and deal with it. I know that the road to You is not the easier of the two, but it is the blessed one, resulting in crossing the finish line and You are my great Reward! Thank you for my sisters in You, and how they encourage me, and for the prayer cover you have provided. Thank you for opening the door, and allowing us to see it and walk through. Thank you for the sunshine this moring that is such an awesome display of your faithfulness to me, and a constant reminder to walk in Your light. Jesus, again today I want more than anything to live for you, and to be a picture of YOU to someone else. Touch my lips with coal from your altar, and purify me to stand in your presence-the presence of my HOLY GOD, and stand in Awe and worship. Send me. Overwhelmed in your Goodness, Your Princess
IT’S TIME! time to stand up and be counted..what do you believe? who do you live for? where have you been? what have you learned? now take that information and tell it to who ever will listen, disregard the ones who won’t.
How very sad it would be if Jesus died to save us, and the result was merely fire insurance from hell. nothing more nothing less. How sad it would be if the only thing that came from the pit we used to call home, was an occasional nod of the head, a quick smile, and “thats nice dear, just sit over there and we will all be so happy that Jesus left you in”.
Lately , i ‘ve been thinking of the woman in the Bible, and how God used them to further HIS plan. He could have picked people who were all together…or was it a matter of fact that none were all together? HE used them..prostitutes, idol worshippers, seductive, and schemers…beautiful, and pitiful, woman who had families that threw them away..the old testament is full of these kind…the new testament again…same kind of women..some plagued with illness, some curled up (from what it doesn’say..i can think of some things that curl me up), adulterers.
GOD felt it important to put them in there with their stories, for people to learn and see HIS grace, mercy, goodness, and although they made bad choices..HE used it for HIS glory. We really need to stand up..we really need to take a moment and just feel the thing…
the gentle touch of our savior, gently lifting our heads, softly speaking life into our very souls, and remembering…we are not who we were…we are HIS treasure, HE found great joy in saving us..HE delights in who we are becoming, HE see the finished person in us…How great is our GOD? stand up and be counted..NO fear..NO shame..we don’t have to sit in the back…quietly..We have a seat right up front! “He prepares a table for us in the presence of our enemies” sweet
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)
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”.
