Let these writings be as embers in the Wind, carried off and causing wildfires…

Here we go

So i guess my first blog post should be something about why I decided to start writing…

We’ll first thing I’ll make clear, I’m completely obsessed with Jesus and the Kingdom of Heaven.

 I’ve been on a pretty amazing journey so far & it has set the bar for me to just expect more amazingly supernatural things to happen!

 I will also make clear that I’m determined to KEEP IT REAL.  And fortunately the supernatural is pretty real and happenin’ in my life.

No my life is absolutely NOT perfect, haha.  I go through storms and I’ve faced many trials but I stand firm knowing the God who holds me will always be faithful!  Now anytime I am going through a crazy season I find it exciting to see how Jesus is gonna work it out for me.  So I’ve just been falling more in love with my Savior every day & I felt it put on my heart to share.

 Much of my posts I expect I will be under the influence of the Spirit- He has given me so many revelatory gems to share.  I really try to write whatever overflow I get from my intimacy with Him.  So I am hoping this will reach some of His beloved.  And even if just ONE person, this will have been worth it.

I am passionate about seeing God’s people encounter His eternal Love in His presence & discover who they really are and what they really mean to Him!  I questioned what to write about, because I’m a mother & a wife and there’s a lot of different things one can right about.  But these are the revelations the Holy Spirit has poured out on me & they come so naturally from my relationship with Him.  The writings are very dear to my heart & I hope they will be to whoever else reads them.

So, here we go.

Made by LOVE, to love and BE LOVED…

 

Have you ever stopped and really soaked it in? Have you stilled yourself lately and observed the beauty created in and around us? There are endless details, delicate and profound. The eyelashes intentionally placed just above your eyes. The wind? Fire? How it is all interlinked somehow- one needing the other? Sounds? Music? The perfect placement of our solar system? The force that literally holds everything we know together.  Symbols in the bible and in our world.  Like numbers- ever notice how certain numbers God used a lot in the Bible are infused all over our world and in science?  What about the 12 tribes of Israel?  And 12 disciples…12 hours of day and 12 of night… and so much more that fascinates me but that’s for another post. We should be always conscious of these things.  These things are whispers of His ways; His love.  We’re not always aware.  We admire it, maybe take notice but we become so used to it.  Used to breathing or being- and we miss the message.

But why?

Something I came to understand about all these things, our very selves as well, is that we are not only loved by God- but are active expressions of His love. Of Himself.  We are a divine expression of our Master, our King.  The eternal & everlasting God, Yahweh. When God spoke us into being- He breathed life out of HIS very being. Out of Himself, out of pure, divine Love.  Awaken to His love.  It’s all around you… You can’t escape His love.  Like the air we breathe.  This life has message.

That is why sin is so unacceptable to Him. It is our misalignment with our created purpose. Sin is translated literally as “missing the mark“. This revelation goes so deep and is so infused with such intense love- it’s impossible to completely understand. If you can stray away from all worldly perversion of sex for one moment and grasp the act of sex between a husband and a wife, full of passion and love, resulting in multiplication of selves- maybe we can get a quaint picture. We have been made out of love. Both physically and spiritually. This is why intimacy kept pure between a man and a woman is so precious to Him. It is a representation of the Artist and Author.

The Devil himself knows it.  He knew about this Love from the beginning.  So from the beginning he had a plan to destroy that image; the understanding of our identity in Love.  He set out to pervert marriage, sex, the idea of love…every little thing he could hack up to ruin the very core of our reason for existence- the message… and mostly the image of who our Maker is.   And the only one who can restore this truth is Truth Himself.  Satan set out to sow strongholds in your mind.  The Devil hates God.  And he hates you because your meant to look like God.  Pretty simple.  And he’s not stupid.  Since the beginning he knew to go for the mind.  If you can get to the mind of something, you can control it and from there- destroy it or others.  That’s why the first encounter we have with him in the Bible is of him manipulating Eve into questioning whether or not God REALLY did say not to eat that fruit.  But lets not be an Eve.  WE now have the honor of the Holy Spirit’s indwelling.  And with our submission and His leading- we can be set free from mindsets we didn’t even know we had…and receive the MIND OF CHRIST.

How can we fully understand this?  How do we get the mind of Christ?  By asking for and receiving the Holy Spirit.  Then by reading His word (a good place to start is between John and Jude in the new testament) and speaking His promises over our lives and believing them.  Because He is the Way, the Truth and the Life.  We have to let the Holy Spirit redirect us to the Father. If you still have strongholds (wrong ways of thinking- any thinking patterns that wedges between the ability to love others or be loved by God or others is my simple definition) that hinder this understanding- you can ask Him to help you.  There really is no strict list of steps because it’s all a supernatural inner healing that the Holy Spirit gently works out.  It’s really about believing what He says and asking Him to get to work.  It’s a wonderful thing to be free and have the mind of Christ & see things from His perspective. Then you will finally have a true sense of Identity.  We were created for love, by love, to love and BE LOVED.

Do you see your value through His eyes?

I’m in awe of His splendor.  Just sitting here meditating on how amazing His intentions towards us.  I look around and let it settle in how His thoughts are so high toward us.  He has literally done everything around us FOR US.  Words can’t even describe it.  I can’t even find a way to express His awesome love!  He first loved US.  Starting from the very beginning of life.  He formed the earth and everything in it FOR US, presenting it before us as a token of His love toward us.  The earth decorated for us as a gorgeous wonderland filled with wonders to be discovered.  With mysteries and expressions of His immense love for us permeated throughout it all.

The reason I emphasize that this was all FOR US is because of the small revelation that it took Him “5 days” to fully ready it all for us.  Like a welcome party He built and decorated the entire universe from the greatest detail to the smallest so that everything was fully set and displayed upon our entrance.  Then like an amazing Dad awakening His beloved child on their birthday, He crafted and breathed us to life.  He awakened us to the fully perfected wonderland of love at last… on the 6th and last day of His creation process.  And on the 7th day, He rested.  He gazed upon us pleased and fully content with the expressions of His love toward us.

We have little understanding of His views and thoughts toward us.  The enemy will try to destroy this understanding by implanting lies in our heads.  One is that we are a mistake.  Another is that we are a disgrace to Him, and so many more.  But however you see yourself, your life, value and the world around you, I encourage you to ask Him to let you see through His eyes! Just go before the throne (your secret  place of prayer) and ask Jesus to show you what He really sees when He looks at you.  Ask Him how he really feels.  I pray that the personal revelation will blow your mind!  It has to me.  I see everything differently in life after encountering Him and listening purposefully to his pure and true small voice.  Anything that does not align with the words He said over Jesus, “this is my BELOVED son/daughter in whom I am well pleased” is a lie.  Reject it and replace it with the truth.  You are now made right with God.  It’s now your responsibility to tear down those strongholds (lies) and renew your mind.  You are fearfully and wonderfully made!

What would life be like if everyone had a full & constant understanding of LIFE as a gift?  If we were conscious of every breath and heartbeat as a whisper of God’s words I LOVE YOU.  And i don’t mean our shallow, tossed around version of I love you.  I mean His.  His version is constant action even if in His stillness.  His love is the giving of Himself.  In our very creation and existence we are a product of His love, of Him who IS LOVE.  A very great thing to be a product of in my opinion.  How much more would we value ourselves if we knew our specific makeup, talents, dreams and creative abilities were a facet of who He is?  Or if we were aware of how He paints the sky uniquely for us everyday.  He delights in you, and His eyes are fixed on you.

Don’t forget to thank Him today but mostly ask Him to make you more aware of His gifts to you in this Life.  Of course the very best gifts of all, His Son who saw you as valuable when He came to die in your place.  And then sent the Holy Spirit to live IN you and never leave you.  He is thrilled about you! You are a treasure to Him.

“The Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure that a man discovered hidden in a field. In his excitement, he hid it again and sold everything he owned to get enough money to buy the field.”

Be who He says you are…

I am Authentic.  I am Creative.  I am hand crafted.  I am profound.  I am beautiful. 

I am custom made.

No one else can do what I was designed and destined to do.  I am not to be restricted by regulations of man and religion.  I am not to be confined to the pattern set by the men and women before me.  I was made with an authentic mind and with creativity engrafted into my being.  Because my Creator is creative, I am a Creative.  I can’t be someone else’s design & they cannot be mine.  When I am in my right identity and I break free out of the container man has put me into, I will naturally worship and glorify my Creator because I am aligned as His perfect design.  I am designer quality.  I am pure.  I am not determined by the value “man” places on me. 

My Creator says I am priceless.

I’ll use the analogy of a diamond.  Would you trust just anyone to determine the value of a diamond? No.  You would be absolutely sure to choose someone who is qualified/accredited for this.  And if you possessed an uncut raw diamond would you allow just anyone to determine and perform how it’s cut? No.  You would surely choose an Artisan that was skilled and an expert at performing this task.

No two diamonds, even with the same numbers, handle light or “perform” the same. Cutting, more than any other factor, determines the beauty and brilliance of a diamond.  A “D” color diamond, though high on the color scale, may lack beauty and brilliance due to poor cutting.  A flawless diamond may also lack beauty and brilliance due to poor cutting.  In order to find a diamond that is both beautiful and brilliant, it is necessary to first search for a diamond that is well proportioned, and then to balance out the color, clarity, and size with budgetary considerations.

And if you would be so particular with a DIAMOND, why then would you be so lenient with your very own person? Your life, dreams, identity, worth, value?!

Allowing just anyone to handle the dreams God has placed in your heart.  Allowing just anyone to determine your value, purpose, “cut’.  Allowing your destiny to be shaped and conformed to the destinies of those before you? When we believe the lie that we are not who He says we are and listen to any other voice, we are allowing others to determine our value.  Diamond’s don’t have a say in how the gem cutter should cut it, or even others.  Some diamonds want to just be a rock and fall on top of you and hide your brilliance!  You get where I’m going with this!  When we allow others to pick apart, confine or quench our God given desires- we are allowing THEM to cut us into shapes that deem our lives and purposes a value LESS THAN what our very Creator has intended it to be.  You were not meant to STAY on the very path OTHERS set before you.  The only person’s path your to walk is Jesus’ and that’s cause He’s the only one who can walk you through your true destiny in His love an grace.  You were not created to be a model of another person’s life.  You were not made to just sing the same song as everybody else.  Or paint the same painting.  Or dance the same dance.  You are an attribute expression of our Creator.  A masterpiece of the Master.  And He wants to “chisel” you out of the mold.  He wants to shape you into the perfect fragment meant to reflect and filter His light in a way no one else can!

 

So ask Him to show you how you’ve been restrained, bound, conformed in any way today!  Just ask the Holy Spirit to set you free & give you the wings you were always meant to have.  His voice is the ONLY voice you should allow to determine who you are and what you’re about.  Ask Him to silence every other voice.  Whether it be the world’s, traditions, religion, voices of fear or insignificance.  Most of us have lies we’ve believed for so long- it’s impossible to expose them without the help of Holy Spirit.  He is the Way, Truth and the Life.  We will know our true identity the closer we get to the Maker of that identity. You’re a valuable work of art which without would make the Kingdom of Heaven incomplete. Be all you were designed for! When you know who you are in Him, then you can be all you were made to be and do all you were made to do.

He died, bled and conquered death all for that you know…
