Soul Cravings (Friday Blessings)

What is your hearts desire?

What does your soul crave for?

~

 

The ripples dance

as I step into

the river of life

I feel its life wash over my soul!

 

My lungs fill with song

as I inhale

refreshing winds

the breeze from the tree of life!

 

My heart beats with joy

as I walk 

with saints of old

the stories of His wonderful grace!

 

My soul is at rest

as I look

upon His face

the Emancipator of the redeemed!

 

This is my prayer

my hearts desire

what my soul longs for

a foretaste of heaven

will soon be reality!

Focal Point (Life’s Inspiration)

Who Inspires You?

What is your life ~ your souls Focal Point?

 

Do you ever feel your ambition level  is not reaching its plateau of possibilities, and your potential of positive writing experience is not measuring on the progress scale? Maybe life in general is lacking beauty and sparkle of creativity. Are you in a routine rut? Triviality of everyday life just might be empowering the wrong energy.

 

Let’s take a look at ambition levels, let’s measure positive actions that have or haven’t become reality. A little soul searching just might be in order! 

 

*Is your spiritual life ~ well being in order? 

*What is your purpose in life? 

*Is He your purpose?

 

When the Holy spirit is welcomed into a willing soul, a life long companion of grace is waiting to inspire! Being one with the Father will both empower and release a true freedom, causing adventurous flights of faith! These adventures can be overflowing with motivation, causing ones heart to brim with happiness, and spill over creating journals of encouragement! 

 

Just remember you don’t want to be looking back on missed opportunities of being liberated by the Holy spirit! Live your life to the fullest with your guide, your LIFE companion! The Great Emancipator, the Inspiration of life and writing. 

 

Ephesians 1:11

Living Bible (TLB)

  Moreover, because of what Christ has done, we have become gifts to God that he delights in, for as part of God’s sovereign plan we were chosen from the beginning to be his, and all things happen just as he decided long ago.

Managing “the pressure” with JESUS … (Avenue of Encouragement)

 

Luke 12:25 (NIV)

 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life?

 

 ***

Although we all live in a time of incredible progress, more and more people find it tremendously difficult to deal with stress, tension, and anxiety. This earthly realm we currently reside in, sadly offers extensive pressures and immense strain. 

 

In order to live confidently in these demanding times, lives in all areas must be committed to Christ our Lord. Only through this avenue of sincere intimate relations with our Saviour, one will achieve ultimate assurance and guidance through these earthly storms.

 

Our small efforts to be successful will slowly snuff out like an old candle stick fighting to stay lit. Stay focused on Him, feed on HIS word, keep your lantern filled with oil ~ HIS Holy spirit! It is then you can…

 

Live confidently, write with purpose, and share your offerings of encouragement, so that others may be encouraged to walk in HIS light!

 

Lend a helping hand of faith and courage. Pray together, trust together, rest together underneath the shelter of HIS unfailing word!

Proverbs 18:10 (NIV)

 The name of the Lord is a fortified tower;

the righteous run to it and are safe.

 

 

2 Corinthians 4:16-18 (Living Bible)

 That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our inner strength in the Lord is growing every day.  These troubles and sufferings of ours are, after all, quite small and won’t last very long. Yet this short time of distress will result in God’s richest blessing upon us forever and ever! So we do not look at what we can see right now, the troubles all around us, but we look forward to the joys in heaven which we have not yet seen. The troubles will soon be over, but the joys to come will last forever.

 

Friendship, an offering of encouragement, one of God’s many richest blessings ~ benefits of walking with our King! 

“May a heart be blessed, and a soul refreshed”

 

 

 

*** 

 Many years ago

twas a night without a moon,

the sky was dark and oh so cold

in the trees there was no tune.

 

For on this night the wind did blow

midst the storm a mighty gale,

arrows of rain had pelted down

that soon turned into hail!

 

A little robin sought his shelter

upon a maple high,

tossed about from mighty winds

he looked up to the sky.

 

“Dear Lord” he prayed “please keep me safe 

amid the dark, please shine your light”,

twas then he thought he heard a song

deep within the shadows night.

 

For underneath the spruces bow 

a little sparrow had nested,

refuged from the mighty storm

in His masters hand he rested.

 

On the winds his song it carried

to the maple high,

come my friend and rest with me

in His love we shall abide!

 

So the robin took his flight

to the spruce below,

together with the sparrow prayed 

and sang while billows rolled!

 

The robin prayed and thanked His Maker

for the answered prayer,

for sending him the little sparrow

for His love and care.

The Language of Tears (He Loves Me)

He has a name for every star

He sees the ones that fall,

He cares for every little sparrow

He hears them when they call.

 

So is it so surprising

that He bottles up my tears,

within His book He knows to look

He knoweth all my fears?

 

He knows the tears He counts them all

from all my sorrows, trials and cares,

my tears of joy and blessings too

the silent ones that I don’t share.

 

He understands He hears each one

as from my eyes they drop,

the ones that hide within my heart

each one I try to stop.

 

For only God can understand

the language of my tears,

He reads them all with love and care

throughout my earthly years.

Promise of Prayer

Was prayer part of your New Years resolutions?

 

Prayer’s foundation ~ God’s assurance! Spiritual exercising ~ spiritual energy that makes way for God’s bounty of promises! 

God’s promises that bless our present, and our heavenly future!

My great Auntie always told me, “Promises are God’s golden fruit, just waiting to be picked by your hands of prayer” 

I pray God will bless and guide our lives and offerings of encouragement.

Amen

Sharing a prayer I wrote last year; a prayer that remains current in my everyday walk with God.

 

Dearest Jesus Saviour of mine

I know Thou art with me and I am thine,

You are the Potter and I the clay

Mould me and make me have Thine own way.

 

Dearest Jesus lover of my soul

Embrace my life and make me whole,

Complete me I pray and never let me stray

From the rock of ages the true gospel way.

 

Dearest Lord shepherd of my life

Guide me through life’s darkest strife,

Hold me fast to the cross I will cling

Amazing grace forever I will cling.

 

Dearest Redeemer my El Shaddai

Your praises I’l sing in the sweet by and by,

Forever to dwell in the city of Gold

Surrounded by family friends and saints of old.

 

Dearest Saviour now I see face to face

Beholding your glory your love I embrace,

Arm in arm with saints forever I will stroll

Immortal will I stand as eternity unfolds!

 

Amen
