Reminded Of…

Things I Am Reminded Of…

Don’t confirm friendships with accolades of praise, true friends Celebrate each other.

Embrace every scar as a lesson — to make me more like Yahweh/God.

Grow in a love relationship with the Author of Scripture, The Creator of Life and all things Living.

Embrace every pain as a peeling away the layers of the onion that we are — to make me know that in new ways, I am enough…He is enough.

Embrace every moment as a treasured gift— one it might never have been. This causes me to wake to all everything as grace.

If you count each “Fear Not” in Scripture, there’s apparently 366 — one for every day of the year, plus one on Leap Year.
YHVH/God does not give us a spirit of fear. 2 Timothy 2:17
Faith is the SUBSTANCE of things hoped for, the EVIDENCE of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1

If we want to live the fullest life and be obedient to Yahweh/God then we have to have faith over fear each day of the year and then a little more.

Faith is the Substance, not fear.

Thou Shalts

The Thou Shalts…
The Torah of Messiah includes the following commandments:
“Thou shalt believe thou are my beloved – entirely accepted and entirely forgiven”
“Thou shalt forget the shame of thy past”
“Thou shalt stop thinking of your sin but rather of My great remedy for your life”
“Thou shalt let me carry your woundedness far away, yea, to the bottom of the sea”
“Thou shalt live in My love and be filled with its spirit,”
“Thou shalt believe in a joyful ending, that My love is stronger than My justice,”
“Thou shalt fear nothing but that which causes you to lose sight of My love for you…”

Bike Chains and Rubber Bands

I’m half a century and half a decade old this year…birth year that is..and it seems like I am still peddling backwards to move a little bit forward.  It seems the bicycle of life has a rubber band instead of a chain. While giggling inside as I shared that thought with my friend Karen, who is 4 days older than me and her response, “Don’t forget you and I are living in the land of many deliberate sins against our FATHER. Right now heavy warfare is played out around us, that effects us, like the economy continuing to drop.

But remember ALL HIS benefits and Thank and Praise Yahweh for the littlest things, even a piece of bread. Because you and your family are So Loved, and so much drawn to HIS Heart as HIS people. I will pray about a bike chain”.  Yes, I do remember these things hourly it seems for each day I am alive. I woke to the moon flashing in my face and 30 minutes later, a gorgeous sunrise.

Restoration

“I think we do not attach sufficient importance to the restoration of the Jews. We do not think enough of it. But certainly, if there is anything promised in the Bible it is this. I imagine that you cannot read the Bible without seeing clearly that there is to be an actual restoration of the children of Israel…May that happy day soon come!”
–Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892)

Though

Though the fig tree should not blossom And there be no fruit on the vines, {Though} the yield of the olive should fail And the fields produce no food, Though the flock should be cut off from the fold And there be no cattle in the stalls, Habbakkuk 3:18 ~

Yet I will exult in the LORD, I will rejoice in the God of my salvation.
