It has been a while since I have posted. There seems to be not enough time in the day to get everything done. I sat down this morning to write something and I went blank. I have been overwhelmed with the Spirit’s moving in us as of late. Maybe I need to just share what is overflowing out of my heart because of God’s grace for us.
Gratitude is the main thing that is overflowing my heart. I am so grateful that God is pouring out on us. I have a strong sense of gratitude for all of the people that God has put in my life and for what each of you mean to me. I thought that I loved each of you as strong as I could but it is even felt greater in my heart! I am so thankful for each of you and I am amazed that we GET to do this thing called “life” together.
Peace is also overflowing in my heart. The peace that The Spirit is working and that all things are under His control is amazing. I know things are going on all over the world but we are sealed in Him. The world can fall apart but we are His. God’s love for us is overwhelming and it bring peace that passes all understanding for us. So, I am learning not to try to understand it just rest in it. I pray that you to can learn to rest in His peace.
The joy of the Lord is my strength! I have felt joy many times in my life but I am seeing it in a new way. I am finding that His joy is truly building up my spiritual strength. I have been asking God for a while now to show me the good in all things. Sometimes it’s hard to find but He has been faithful to show me through His word. I have a sense the He truly is making this joy new every morning. Whatever the day has for us, the joy of the Lord will come with it if we accept it, look for it and asked Him to show us.
Hunger for more of Him is another thing that is coming forth deep in my heart. I pray that this is in you as well. I want to know Him more. I want to sit at His feet and learn. My desire is for His will not my own. I want to stand in the gap for people because Jesus did that for me. I hunger like I have never hungered before. I pray that this never goes away for us. I pray that as we walk in the power and authority of The Holy Spirit we will desire this more and more.
Courage for the battle that lies ahead. I want to be in the front lines of this fight that I see beginning to rage in the hearts of His people. I don’t want to sit and wait for it, I want to run to it. I want to storm the gates of the enemy and fight! there is only one reason I want to do this. It is so that Jesus will use us to rescue and carry those caught by the enemy to the feet of Jesus. I want to see people get set free from the chains that bind them. I pray that you want to join me in this passion for the lost. I saw a video over the last few weeks that has just amazed me. I know that it has been out for a while but I want to post here as an encouragement of what I am talking about. To take on this battle arm in arm and to run toward chaos.
This video tells just a part of what is coming out of my heart. Thank you all and God bless you today!
In His Grip,
