Unfailing love

Thank you Father that even though you are so great, so amazing, so powerful, so big - you hold me in the palm of you hand, you love me, you are interested in me and want me. Thank you for the precious gift of your Son, and through Him, I am justified and set free. Thank you for loving me so much and seeing me as valuable and incredibly precious.

Thank you Lord for talented, creative people who write songs, and make the words that I can't seem to form. Thank you that through others I can express what is in my heart.

A word in season

Today in church, I was enjoying our time of corporate worship and just spending time in God's presence. I worshiped, I praised, I welcomed such a wonderful sense of God's presence in the place. Then I was still. I just sat at the feet of Christ, in a sense, and just listened and allowed my spirit to hear Him.

I felt that familiar niggle - what if you are destined to be a nobody? What if you have had your day and you will do nothing for God ever again? You have tickets on yourself thinking that you could do ANYTHING for God. Bah... Satan. You think I don't know you? You think I don't recognize a jab from the enemy? Well listen here - I have faith in my God. God is handling it - so you can toddle off and annoy someone else.

My heart whispered... "when God? I know you are taking me through fire, to refine me and to prepare me. I'm at peace with that.... but I keep remembering the promise. I can't forget this. I can't let it go. It keeps coming into my thoughts. When?"

As I poured my heart out to God... I heard God start to impart and start to speak to me.

"Write this down."

So I sat down, in the darkened auditorium, and began to write.

Peace Skipper. Peace. Be at peace in every area of your life. Do not be afraid. I am with you. I am leading you. I hear your heart's cry. I hear you. I know you. I am leading. Have peace my daughter. Be at peace. Those dreams I have planted will happen. Peace. Do not worry. I haven't forgotten you. Everything will come to pass. Let your heart rest in me. Fully. Not just in certain areas. Every area. Trust me. Trust IN me. And be at peace.

Thank you Father for speaking to me. Thank you for your continuing comfort and reassurance that it's all ok and I'm walking this journey with you. Thank you for not leaving me to flounder - that your hand is there holding me, and leading me, and giving me a good shove in the right direction when need be. Thank you for being so patient with me.

New layout for new part of my journey

I know I have been rather quiet here lately - but the way my life is at the moment is all consuming.

I decided to change my blog layout - because a change is always good - but also to reflect where I am at in my journey with God. At the moment every single step I take - I am doing it with such faith that God knows exactly what he is doing and where we are going - because frankly I have no clue. But I'm not worried - because where he leads I know it's a good place. I know that God has a greater purpose and plan and I am just resting, waiting for it to be made known. I know that God will be glorified in every single area of my life - that has been the cry of my heart - and God has honored that. God is going to use this time to extend his kingdom, to allow me to minister to more people and share the goodness of God.

The peace I feel in my heart astounds me. But I rest easily and quietly in the hands of our loving God, truly believing that all things work together for good...

... because I walk by faith and not by sight.
