Not a Moment & Surrendering

“There’s not a Moment in which God does not present Himself under the cover of some Pain to be Endured, of some Consolation to be Enjoyed, or of some Duty to be Performed. All that takes place Within us, Around us, or Through us, contains and conceals His Divine action.”

“Surrendering is Intentionally laying down the Power I Possess. And have I Considered that the power I lay down is often More powerful than That which I’m laying it down in front of? Therefore, I would be Wise to recognize that Surrender is less the Absence of Power and more the Presence of Fear.”

Forgiveness Trumps Negativity

If you’re living a life of negativity, it’s time to kick it out the door and move forward.

I didn’t see for a long time that I was, it wasn’t that I chose to live that way, I was affected by many things in the past. Almost everyone is. I have moved on from that, learned to forgive myself first, then Others.
Forgiving ourselves helps us to be free from negativity …there are also other ways that can be utilized.
I believe one of the hardest things we are called to do in our lives, is to forgive ourselves, In all truth and being completely open with our Creator.
A lot of times I knew I had forgiven others but I could never let that nagging feeling go and I knew something in my thinking wasn’t correct. My mentor pointed out to me that I likely had not forgiven myself and when explained I knew it to be true.
Many times we can’t see our own positions or shadows. If approached in gentleness and love this is something that can be changed in your lives too.

Loving Yourself

You cannot hate your way into loving yourself.

Telling yourself what a failure you are won’t make you any more successful.
Telling yourself that you’re not living up to your full potential won’t help you reach a higher potential.
Telling yourself you’re worthless and unlovable won’t make you feel any more worthy or lovable.

I know it sounds almost annoyingly simple, but the only way to achieve self-love is to love yourself—regardless of who others think you are and where you stand and even if you know you want to change.

You are enough just as you are. The Hebrew word that helps me is Dayenu and it means, It is enough, so it is enough that you someone that the Father made.

Woman of Courage

I found this on a facebook timeline and wanted to share:

I believe that we have to continue to speak things to ourselves and trust in them.. Declare them over all those doubts..
You are what you believe you are.

Tell yourself..

I am courageous..
I am determined..
I am unstoppable..
I am victorious..
I am love..
I am gifted..
I am anointed..
I am blessed..
I am successful..
I am healed..
I am beautiful..
I am whole..
I am confident..
I am forgiving..
I am grateful..
I am generous..
I am strengthened..
I am well-able..
I am favored..
I am God’s masterpiece..
I am not who I was.. I am who I am becoming..
Less of me.. More of Him..

Keep speaking life to yourself..
and don’t just say it..
Trust in it..

Captivate Us

Your face is beautiful
And Your eyes are like the stars
Your gentle hands have healing
There, inside the scars
Your loving arms they draw me near
And Your smile it brings me peace
Draw me closer, oh my Yeshua
Draw me closer, LORD to Thee

Captivate us, Yeshua
Set our eyes on You
Devastate us with Your presence
Falling down
And rushing river, draw us nearer
Holy fountain consume us with You
Captivate us Yeshua, in You

Your voice is powerful
And Your words are radiant bright
In Your breath and shadow
I will come close and abide
You whisper love and life divine
And Your fellowship is free
Draw me closer O my LORD
Draw me closer LORD to Thee
Let everything be lost in the shadows
Of the light of Your face
Let every chain be broken from me
As I’m bound in Your grace
For Your yoke is easy, Your burden is light
You’re full of wisdom, power and might
And every eye will see You…

New Moon, Clean Feet

Today our family does foot washing. In doing this it represents for us a new month, we let go of ‘Egypt’ which is anything in the past that affects us negatively, from the month before and start fresh.

We make an Agreement that we are willing to forgive ourselves and seek forgiveness from YHVH.

This act has helped me more than anything I know, to let go of my past. It can be repeated over and over, I do this through Mikveh on a personal level.
