Entrusted

 

I laid it down,
conflict of heart
and soul;
dropped it into
the reaching hands
of Abba Father,
the One
who sees
and knows all.
I left it there,
entrusted to
the One
in full control.
Then entered
soul rest,
fresh breath
of wind
and Spirit.

I will stand upon my watch and watch to see what He will say
to me and what I will answer when I 
am corrected. Habakkuk 2:1

The Mender of Broken Hearts

100_3689.jpg.landscapeofheart

I have journaled for decades.
Poured out my heart on tear
stained paper. Held nothing
back from the One who held
me. Year after year I climbed
into my Father’s lap and gave

Him the broken pieces of my heart.

And He mended it. Again and again.

Now in the winter season of my life, I look back from heaven’s
point of view, 
and gratefully proclaim: He does all things well. 

Like yours, my story is different, yet in many ways the same.
Truth is we
 are all broken in some way. And we can all give our
hearts back to the only
One who can mend it. 

Are the details of our lives important? Maybe. Maybe not. I for
one don’t feel we
need to air our dirty laundry to those around us.
Some things are meant for God’s eyes only. The One who formed
us in our mother’s womb knows all about our lives. (Psalm 139)

I challenge you to take up your pen and write a letter to the only
One 
who can re-write your story. Pour our your heart and ask
Him to pour out His love.

He will. (John 3: 16)

Come to Jesus, our wonderful merciful savior. Our High Priest
who is touched by our feelings, and able to help us in our time of
need. (Hebrews 4:13-16)

Our Daddy’s Heart

scan0012

Time alone explained the true heart of our Daddy.
Seasons of his life reflected the loving care he gave our family.
We remember a daddy who held his children close, rocked
and 
sang beautiful songs of faith over us.
We remember long years of sacrificial hard work to provide for a growing family.
His example taught us to take responsibility for those we love,
even when the cost is great.
Looking back, we believe he would have given his life for any one of us.
That kind of love goes a long way when it is
forever modeled before you.
We remember the love that swelled our hearts when he would say;
“I’m the richest man in town because of the
seven children God gave me.”
We remember Daddy was always true to Mother.
Loving her, providing for and protecting
her all those years.
We remember a contagious laughter that just about lifted the roof.
Like the day we watched our favorite family movie.
Those were the times 
we just about got down
and rolled on the floor with him.
How we loved to hear Daddy laugh.
We remember challenging seasons of life, when hope was restored by
his oft-quoted confident words.
“Everything’s going to be all right”.
An echo of the promise of Romans 8:28:
“God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God.”

Thank you God for giving us a daddy that left us with
a legacy we shall always cherish.

Lean Hard On Me


Who is this coming up from the wilderness, leaning on her beloved?
Song of Songs 8:5

MoCKQFZxubLzY9LP03QVQeHj7Q6XrNQQTGXi1zwPnmE
My peace I give
 in the winding wilderness,
where heart and
mind are overwhelmed.
Worry not nor fret,
my daughter.
Lean hard on Me and
trust and rest.

My love I give
 in the valley of trials,
where tears
must fall along the way.
Offer me your tears,
My daughter.
Lean hard on Me and
trust and rest.

Put my tears in your bottle, are they not all in your book?
Psalm 56:8

More Precious Than Gold

The Valley of Trials

You have come through
the valley of trials,
and have found Me faithful.
You’ve wept and cried out,
worshipped, and leaned hard on Me,
and always—always
I’ve been by your side.

I’ve sung over you
and rejoiced to hear you pick
up the song
and sing it back to Me.
I’ve held you close
to My heart
when yours was breaking.

I’ve promised your joy will return
and will watch and
wait with you,

until you find it to be so.
I am all you need,
no matter
the season, trial or test.

I have found your tested faith more precious than gold.

I have sought you out,
chosen and called you to come to Me.
I am your very source of
the Bread of life and Living water.
I AM….I AM
and I’ll be what it takes
to meet your need.

These trials are only to test your faith, to show that it is strong and pure.
 It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold, and your faith
is far more precious to God than mere gold. 1 Peter1:7
