I love this man "Yeshua"

Recently I heard a song called "Let Go Now" a 9 minute rendition by Kelanie Gloeckler. As I heard this song multiple times and meditated on its words, the Holy Spirit's presence was surrounding me and bubbling within me. It was almost as if my heart was about to explode multiple times. I knew then at the moment the Holy Spirit was presenting me to this man "Jesus" ...all I could say is I am in love with this man "Jesus". The Holy Spirit was presenting me as a bride to the Son of God, tears rolling uncontrollably, my devotion and commitment unceasing and my surrender complete.

The song has these two beautiful lines in its chorus: "All I want to do is lose myself in you, lean back in your arms and just let go now." O Lord I want be in the center of your holy flame, your ways are higher than mine, ready to give you everything - to take your heart to the ends of earth. The songs goes on to say "I surrender to your holy burn, break me wide open to carry your heart".

I love you O Jesus. There is no one I love more than you and you have my everything.  I know now what Mary Magdalene and the disciples felt when He was around. I understand the parable of the ten virgins the five that had the oil - "the oil is the intimacy" - I know I am not coherent or correlating rightly here but I know its about being in "crazy love" with Him and enjoying Him constantly.

Blessings & Shalom,

Promise Verses From My Quiet Time

Isaiah 41:10 "Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you, with My righteous right hand."

Isaiah 41:15-16 "Behold I have made you a new, sharp threshing sledge with double edges; You will thresh the mountains and pulverize them, And will make the hills like chaff. You will winnow them, and the wind will carry them away, And the storm will scatter them; But you will rejoice in the LORD, You will glory in the Holy One of Israel." 

There are lots of hidden messages that He is revealing to me which I won't necessarily record here but the Lord has impressed on me and Sarah about the rivers flowing from bare heights and the planting of different types of trees. Here is the pic that Sarah drew of the different trees mentioned in Isaiah.

Isaiah 41:18-19 "I will open the rivers on the bare heights and springs in the midst of the valleys; I will make the wilderness a pool of water. And the dry land fountains of water. I will put the cedar in the wilderness, the acacia and the myrtle and the olive tree; I will place the juniper in the desert together with the box tree and the cypress, that they may see and recognize, and consider and gain insight as well, that the hand of the LORD has done this, and the Holy One of Israel has created it." 

We have been and continue to be in the season of God's revelations, closeness and our home is a greenhouse for believers, planting of mighty oaks and in the midst of battles, resting in pools of living waters. 

Come and Drink!!! May these living words be encouraging to you too...

Blessings & Shalom,

Prophetic Painting

Been very busy with taxation season last month but now I plan to catch up on some writing. End of January got an unexpected gift; a painting from a prophetic artist friend of ours Lori Vafiades. The painting is that of Joshua lingering at the entrance of the tent of meeting. Here is the picture:

What Lori didn't know was that I had written a poem a few years ago with the title "Lingering" that talked about Joshua hanging about the tent long after his leader Moses had returned back to the camp after talking and being in the presence of Yahweh. Lori titles the paining "The Young man would not depart from the tent  ". May we all continue the lingering and the longing for Him. Wait we don't have to long or be that desperate...His presence is very close. Yet He creates the longing for you to come more closer.

Blessings & Shalom,
