Ebb and Flow . . .

cropped-wp-20141.jpg

There are times when the ebb and flow of our sojourn here comes as gentle as the edge water, caressing a quiet cove with each movement as it keeps time to the rhythmic harmony of life’s essence. Unfortunately, without warning, storms appear out of nowhere to send turbulent waves breaking upon our shores, snatching peace, understanding, and even life from us.  Dark, troubled times happen to us all, albeit some more than others, but it’s how we face those moments of doubt, fear or uncertainty that will see us through the heaviest of downpours. God’s promises are new every morning, and He is faithful and true to His Word without fail. If we look to Him in those times when the rain seems unending, His Light will come shining through, and we will eventually see rainbows of promise, dancing all around us! Trust me, I know!

James 1:17 New King James Version: “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.”

I Will Not Be Silenced . . .

Standard

Someday I may be forcibly forbidden to write or speak of  Yeshua-Jesus, my Messiah, the One who redeemed me from the shameful darkness of sin by giving His life for mine. But though my words be removed as though my tongue were cut out, my thoughts will continue to be on Him; my eyes will reveal God’s Mercy; my lips will smile and convey His Love; my hands will show His kindness; my arms will hold and give His tender comfort; my feet will walk in His ways and lead others down the narrow path that leads to eternal Life! Even in death, should my life be taken, all I have done in His Name will remain to proclaim His greatness, His power, His glory, His love, His forgiveness, His promises. You Cannot silence me . . . You Will Never Silence Him!

More Than A Blur In Time . . .

Standard

The Lord is my Light and my Salvation!

We exist this side of time and space for such a short period ~ a blur in the lives of some, an indelible mark in the hearts of others. The image we leave behind at the end will speak volumes about our life and the impact it has had on those we’ve come in contact with, whether family, friends, or even strangers. Either Christ, the Son of God, shines through us and uses us to light the way for those lost in the dark, or we walk in darkness ourselves and are forgotten . . . like a passing shadow.

While some would advise developing a thick outer shell so as to make it through life with as few scars as possible, I believe we need to become as thin as a gossamer cloud, so the Light of God’s Love within will emit a glow so bright it will beckon others to follow us into eternal blessings!

Joy~Peace~Trust: Come What May . . .

This photo of my ‘cabin’ Hummingbird encapsulates my feelings right now ~ that of joy, peace, and trust! I am hearing so many Christians talk about being nervous and wringing their hands and weeping and fasting and praying that this 2016 election will go their way. What way? Is not our way the straight and narrow path that leads to life eternal with the Lord? Our way needs to be God’s way. HIS Will, not ours. If our freedoms and our right to worship are taken away or we are persecuted because of them, are we any better than our brothers and sisters in Christ in China, Iran, parts of Africa or wherever else they may be living under evil leadership?

I’ve been fasting and praying as well, but the Lord has given me peace. I know He is faithful to His Word~the Bible~the Holy Scriptures, for He says He will never leave me nor forsake me. It’s my faith in Him that engenders joy, peace and trust! And so we can and aught to pray for peace, but if it does not happen, we have this confidence within us that it will be all right, according to HIS plans and purposes! This is our witness to the world . . . may we be faithful to it!

In His Love,

Once Upon a Time . . .

Here is a dream website I designed, which was to be created by my Son, who is now working for Brain Technologies in L.A. This was 12 years ago! I had worked on a vision, but it was too hard to put together at the time, and I had to settle for something a bit different. Someday I’ll figure it out, but ’til then it’s still my dream. And if I’ve learned one thing in this long life of mine, it’s never give up on your dreams!! Lord Willing, they Can come to pass!!

When God Speaks . . .

sunrise-10-9a

Early morning rises, and in the stillness of the quiet surrounding, all the din of past yesterdays, all the political rhetoric, all the weather related calamities, and all the unrest and upheavals in the world, but especially the Middle East, fade away into utter awe at the beauty before me. I take a breath and tell my heart to be still . . . God is speaking!

So if you find life is a bit overwhelming, take heart. I hope you have a place of quiet rest you can enter and feel God’s presence and know that He is in total control of everything. If not, simply close your eyes, and He will be there. Then still your heart and listen . . . I think you’ll find God is speaking.

In His love,

Mid
