two paths…seeking HIS Righteousness

twopathsSeems like I have been looking at these paths forever but in reality it has been 8 weeks.  Spiritually speaking.  Since walking on the path seeking HIS face, and HIS righteousness…the path keeps getting smaller.  Along with that, people tend to be left behind, and more believing God is needed. God will take care of those who are not going with, and God also calls me to follow after HIM.  The paths up to this point have been much easier for me to discern direction.  I am sure although I believe my road is extremely narrow, that it can become more narrow.  At the same times, I recieve warnings from other believers that this may be deception.  My only answer to that is…I need to believe GOD, and if I choose in error, I am still believing GOD, and HE will have to rescue me, and I believe that HE will.  Still not wanting to turn away Godly advice.  Are you starting to understand my dilema? 

I have come to this…

*Jesus is the way..and all men come to the Father through him. (John 14:6)

*My deepest heart cry is to know HIM more and love HIM more.  (Phillipans 1:9-11)

*fear of the LORD is sometimes interpretted as a critical spirit. Fearing the LORD is better than what men say. (Jeremiah 32:39)

*Walk by faith and not by sight.(Hebrews 11:1 )

*waiting for HIM to say “this is the road, take it.”   (Isaiah 30:21)

Last question for today..HOW does this verse play in to all that I am thinking? This is where I continue to come back to, and the verse that seems to be tucked in the back of my mind. ..

Isa 35:8 (NASB) — A highway will be there, a roadway, And it will be called the Highway of Holiness. The unclean will not travel on it, But it {will} be for him who walks {that} way, And fools will not wander {on it.}

Two paths…feeling the pressure to choose, and yet I want HIM to tell me. What HE speaks to me is…”Believe ME”..

(Update- I choose today, and I am believing God that HE is always faithful, and will finish the work HE has started in me and through me.  Thank you all for your great encouragement, and prayers! love you)

Note to “Self”

 

Self, you have become extremely annoying and overtly distracting.  Seems to me you were supposed to be dead, but when I least expect you..there you are with all your ugliness!  So what ever it takes, and however long the battle, you- Self can’t win.  You see…

I have been crucified with Christ, and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.  Galations 2:20

I am limiting my time this week on blogsville, I will still be around just not near as much…I am battling “self”, and not quite understanding how something that is dead, still has so much strength.  Do you battle with Self, is this something that will never end on earth?  If so, then what does Galations 2:20 mean…? 

Thought of this video and you can go there and see it Mercy Me- so long self

My Garden of Sanctification

The rock sticking out in the corner has been my seat in this cathedral for most of my life. This is where I learned the most.  Its still where I run to when I can’t think, and when I hurt, and when I am desperate to hear God’s voice.

I missed the fall colors when I took these pictures, and was so bummed that it was leftover colors when there, HE reminded me we were in a drought, and I was still seeing more color than most..was that enough for me?  Yes, the colors were awesome. The perfect world is yet to come.

Always stop here first, and pray.  Like coming home.  HE romanced me here long before I knew HIM. And through every disappointment, and fear, HE comforted me, and gave me a new perspective, HIS perspective.  This is my true church.

HE planted each tree, HE grew them, and colored them perfectly. And HE knew HE would use it to draw me to HIM.  That is the kind of GOD HE is!  All part of the plan. Do you know HE does the same for you?

This is the entrance to the seat overlooking HIS Grandeur, displaying HIS majesty.  Its very narrow, and little risky, it can easily be missed unless you know that it is there, but oh so worth it.  Sort of like the walk I have with HIM now. 

This is the wide path that will take you to the river if you stay on it, not a bad path, the views are okay, and there is not anything wrong with sitting along the river, I generally end up there, its steep to come back up, but missing the small path is really missing the whole picture. 

Do you have a place to go that the world can not invade? No distractions, No noise, silence…a place where God can speak and you most definitely will hear? I am praying that for you today.  I drive 40 minutes to get here, I worship with music the whole way, and then just HIM and me, my Bible, and usually tissues…since HE has opened my tear ducts( I didn’t cry my childhood, it was a sign of weakness), I can cry a river. 

HE calls us to the secret place..to pray and to be blessed.  Matthew 6:5-15  and this is how you should pray… “our Father, who art in Heaven, Hallowed is thy name (meaning Holy is your name)…”

Tell me about your place…even if its just a closet..HE honors that too!  

A sticky note from God…  Blessed are you, (enter your name), who seeks my face…come, I want to spend time with you…
