Glimpses

This is just a little part of the journey for me, You have promised to take me past this, to a place of pure joy and everlasting peace, a place where my body will no longer try to hold me back, a place where my mind will not be constantly assaulted with thoughts of failure and condemnation, I get glimpses of what You have for me as I dwell in Your presence and hide myself in You, I see glimpses of heavenly glory, Jesus by Your side and me seated at Your feet absorbing every word spoken to me, and in the blink of an eye I am on my feet dancing before You, my King, my Lord, my Abba, Your love is fueling me, giving me the strength to keep dancing……..

What is God up to??

I sometimes wonder what You’re up to, when I tear up and start crying for no other reason than You are caressing me with Your love and my spirit breaks forth is reason enough, but tonight I felt that it was for another reason, that it was Your passion for us crying out to be known, to let You be our everything all the time, not just when we need help, but when we are taking each breath, in the simple and the ordinary, in the complicated and extraordinary. You want us to be intimately aware of You with us and in us,knowing that it is You who is orchestrating every moment of our lives, Your heart cries out to us to just come and be with You, You desire that we simply recognize that Your grace is what sustains us moment to moment. I hear You telling me that we are to take Your grace and run with it, let it loose in our lives and see what happens and see where we are taken while in the grips of Your grace. That’s what You want, it’s what You gave it to us for.
“So go and be amazed at what I will do when you decide to accept my gift of grace and you run with it”, says the Lord.  Linnette
Embrace Gods grace

Every moment is a Jesus moment

We are to endeavor to see and recognize outstanding Jesus moments each and every day. This is what my Pastor asked us to do this week.
As I thought about what some of those moments might look like I realized that being at church yesterday was in itself a whole lot of Jesus moments put together, just to be there, sitting in a chair, feeling better than I had in quite a while was His doing.
Being taught the message of grace by a Pastor who I kind of think of as our Paul, someone God has handpicked for us and for those who will hear him through the many media outlets available to him, so many Jesus moments over the span of years, but all of those put together to bring me to this moment in time.
And I realized that it was somehow easier to look back to see what Jesus has been doing in my life, like the pieces of a puzzle falling into place, each one being placed correctly but not being able to see the picture they become until the last piece is placed, but trusting that the end result will be the completed picture. It’s a picture of how our lives in Christ are, each moment may not make perfect sense or we may seem incomplete but as we trust God and as we accept that each moment of our lives are Jesus moments we have the confident assurance that the end result will be perfectly complete. Every moment is a Jesus moment!
Spend some time just looking at what Jesus has done for you and you can’t help but get excited about what is yet to come!!
