New


There's something about a fresh coat of paint, spring cleaning, and new beginnings...  It's exciting.  I think our spirits are keenly attune to God's Word, even if we don't know it or understand it.

We long for newness even when we don't like change.  We long for fresh starts, "do overs" if you will. New beginnings when we haven't been who we want to be...  God knew that and already enacted a plan for us.

"The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness." Lamentations 3:22-23

Oh, how these Words comfort me!  The last several years I have not been who I wanted to be.  I allowed the circumstances of life to have too much power to impact who I was.  God, in His Mercy & Faithfulness, has come to my aide and given me a fresh start, again. 

I sit here today so grateful & humbled that the God of the universe, that holds the universe in His hands, loves so deeply, so intimately, cares so much, that He made His Mercies new for us, every morning!  

Those who know me, know that I am an experiential person.  I need to touch and feel and taste a thing to really know it.  God knows that (He made me that way!) and I think it makes Him smile that when I do a thing, there is an alter of remembrance somewhere in the mix.  So, January 1, 2015 He and I spent the morning together & I scooped up armfuls of His Mercy, and even came back for more!  He & I, we worked out some things.  And then He gave me a great gift, a sacred gift & He used my husband to give it.  A sacred space for me to meet with The LORD.  As I type I am surrounded by memories & knowledge & things that represent journeys & things that just plain 'ole caught my eye.  Inspirations. 

So, new year, new Mercy, new space...  I thought it only fitting that the blog get a fresh look too.  Let me know what you think.

As for you my dear friend,  His Mercy is for you too.  For any season, any situation.  Don't wait too long to come to Him in the morning, there is something sacred about starting your day with Him & it changes things.  Don't we all just need arms-full of fresh Mercy?  He's waiting....

Gilgal – An unknown heart’s desire fulfilled

Gilgal
– An unknown heart’s desire fulfilled
My response to El Greco’s painting of “Christ on the Cross” circa 1600
You’ve haunted me since early youth captured, yet not knowing why. The agony was clear to see “languish” is the word that comes yet understanding escaped me and yet I still was drawn.
For years the image would come and then go. For years I’d ponder with sorrow For years I’d long to see you again And yet still not knowing why.
A fortnight passed and world away and I knew before I turned Your presence beckoned me Heart racing, feet rushing, boldly approaching You Causing alarm, laughable now, for it was love that drew me to You
Standing in Your Presence Tears of knowing joy Love so deep its painful Soaking You in Breathing You in Never wanting to leave Grateful for the most intimate gift.
Gilgal.
Knowing now (even in the smallest part) leaves me in awe and wonder more. Oil on canvas, nay, but more.Heavenly power imbued. It seeketh and it haunteth till the work of God is fu…

The Throne Room

Recently my sister and I had a conversation about the Throne Room of God and it reminded me of a precious encounter with The LORD a few years ago.  I share it that it might encourage you to enter His Presence, find the Love we all so desperately need, the Peace that surpasses all understanding, and an intimate relationship with The Almighty God through His Son, Jesus. Come, He is waiting…  The room is vast and i sense others there but do not see them. i feel all eyes are on me, yet it matters not.  i am drawn so strongly to the one before me that it's as though there is a tether in my heart that is being pulled in with each solemn footfall.  i am aware of nothing else, only this and only Him. The steps before me are gray, smooth, nondescript, but for the beautiful feet that rest upon the top one.  There are three steps and as i sit on the second step and pull the robe about me, i am aware of its vastness. It is deep scarlet red and Its train covers my every step. May a hunger for His P…

The Promise

The Promise
Can you see it?
When life swirls and hurls and feels out of control and we’ve lost our ability to even care, what in the world are we to do?
Remember the promises.
Lay hold of them.Lay our hand upon the Truth and let that Truth seep deep into every fiber of our being.Lay hands upon the rock solid, unchanging, ever present, steadfast promises of God.The ones given in His Word and the ones written on our hearts and the ones whispered in the dark.Remember them, meditate upon them, breath them in.
NO thing is impossible for our God.Did you hear that?How many times have you said that very phrase?But how many times have you actually dared to believe it, dared to act on it?
You see, there was this girl.She had her heart set on going to the Holy Land.Some may call it part of a bucket list.This was the only thing in this girl’s bucket!Problem was she was an ordinary girl, living an ordinary life, who grew up to be ordinary with ordinary job, ordinary income and responsibilities.It…
