When our tent is folded, it is not the knowledge in our braincells or the amount in our wallets and bank accounts that counts, it is what we grew in our hearts. Gary AmiraultJesus Loved His Enemies

Adam’s transgression led us into the death realm, but that’s not the end of the story:   “For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead.  For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive”  (I Cor. 15:21-22).  Christ is our “escape hatch” from death and dying, deprivation and depression.  ALL men were plunged into the thorns and thistles by Adam, but praise God, ULTIMATELY, ALL men will be saved, redeemed, restored, made alive, and empowered by God to become His children! Believe it! Jan Antonsson

If “The nightingale sings best with a thorn against her breast,” why not we?

Love your enemies

Love your enemies

Susan Gilbert Dickinson in a letter to Emily Dickinson(1861)
“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before,  looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls.” Hebrews 12:1.
Imagine the song that shall break forth in creation when the fullness of all that has been accomplished through suffering for righteousness sake will be revealed. It won’t be about whining; it will be about the new wine of the kingdom of Jesus — it will be victorious and glorious — a crescendo of joy through suffering.

Jesus and Child

God/Heart Hugs

 

 

    “…people were bringing little children to Jesus to have Him touch them, but the disciples rebuked them.  When Jesus saw this, He was indignant.  He said to them, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.  I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.’  And He took the children in His arms, put His Hands on them and blessed them.”  Mark 10:13-16

 

     A friend told me about a touching conversation between her two grandchildren, 5 year old Matthew and 3 year old Sarah.  The boy said to his sister, ‘I talk to Jesus in my head!’  to which little Sarah responded, ‘I don’t ~ I just cuddle with Him!’ Read the rest of this entry »

Present to Jesus

“When I was just a little girl and loved Him sooooo much, that I asked Him if I could do something special for Him when I grew up, like make Him a present….of me….” Those words came from an email I received from a woman who is presently going through some difficulties. What a delightful thought. How precious! How innocent! I’m sure our heavenly Father is delighted to hear such expressions. But the truth goes much deeper. Our heavenly Father from before the foundation of the world created YOU to be a gift to Him. And in this child he stirred up the thought that He had in mind when He created this child. Deep calls to deep. Love goes out and returns. God is a gift to us and we are a gift to Him.

There are many lying voices coming from many sources in this world, media, fashion and entertainment industries, religions, governments, the devil, parents, siblings and other people who stained our consciences making it difficult for us to make such bold declarations like giving ourselves to God as a gift. What value do we have to One who made everything? I tell you truth when I say the words of that little child are worth more to God than all the churches, temples, synagogues, mosques and all their wealth combined. Now whether you  realize it or not, you ARE a gift from God to Himself. It is a wonderful revelation which brings great joy to one’s heart when this truth is revealed. It happened to me on Valentine’s Day, 1985. It was revealed to me that I am a gift to our heavenly Father and He sent the gift of His Son in my heart to reveal the Truth about me and Him. I rejoice as I write in confidence that one day (if you haven’t heard already) He will reveal this Truth to you. Happy birthday, child of God! You are a precious gift to God!
