O God, my God,

you have taken the ashes of my life,

the things that I thought I loved, the things I thought brought me joy and happiness,

Those things, the fools gold that held me captive to a life,

I felt powerless to change,

They dragged me down, enslaved me, making me want more.

All the while miserable, I dreamt of a rescuer a knight in shining armour,

I again, led away into captivity by putting my need for salvation

into people and things.

 

But Father, you knew, you knew what I needed,

you knew the depths of my despair,

you knew the self loathing

Waiting patiently for me to realise that you and only you are

my knight in shining armour.

 

Only you can restore my ruined cities,

Only you, O Lord, my God could set me free.

Father, you have set my feet to dancing, my heart to longing for you,

my soul pumping with excitement for what you are doing inside of me.

 

They ask , with arrogance,

What is your God doing?

I cry out with a shout of glee,

He, who set the stars in their place, who told the tides when to go in and out,

Yes, the very same creator of the universe,

 

He, gave me comfort for my mourning

He bestowed on me a crown of beauty

instead

of the ashes to which I so helplessly clung,

He bathed me in the oil of gladness instead of mourning

He gave me a garment of praise, especially made for me

Instead of the despair that had come in to ravage my soul.

 

You said of me, O Lord that I shall be called an oak of righteousness,

a planting of the Lord.

 

Lord, you redeemed me for the sole purpose of being the display or your splendour.

O, how I praise your Holy name O God,

Your promises for my redemption are great, and I will stand on them

As I reflect you every day, in every way.

Amen

I am forever thankful and grateful to God for his great love for us and His grace and forgiveness that he Lavishes on each one of us. Rejoice in Him today, for His great mercy)

 

I am created for your pleasure, created for your glory

You, my Lord, have taken my ashes of what I thought was living

and replaced it with your beauty.

You, my Lord, put your fragrance of life into me,

No longer do I have the stench of death, but I am filled with your fragrance of life.

To live forever with you, shinning, shimering, a great inheritance.

Only you my lord, understand the fullness of this inheritance,

Lord that you have prepared for me,

Others look, envy and even hate it,

But you Abba Father

Say

“Come home, my good and faithful servant, enter into your inheritance, where no moth or rust could destroy”

Thank you Abba Father

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ

Tiny faith is all it takes

 This morning I was driving my car when at the side of the road, I saw some workmen drilling holes in the ground. They were doing a huge construction work right on the main street going into Wye road, Sherwood Park.  I looked over and saw something that I had never seen before in my entire life, it was an industrial sized ‘saw bit’  I could not believe my eyes. It was humungous and scary looking. I never even know that size existed.

 It took a great amount of pressure to get it into whatever it was they were drilling. Even with that powerful machine, force had to be administered.

I had this sudden double beat of my heart as I realized a few things. The last few years it has felt like God has left me in the “dark”. I have found that I was feeling sorry for myself and at times wondering if God was even on my side anymore. Having to leave my country, long term illness, sorrow, exhaustion, lack of finances and many more things to remind me of my ‘lack of faith’. 

 Was it lack of faith?

NO! I had been believing a big lie!  How many times has the scripture been interpreted incorrectly and ‘lack of faith’ is one of them.  Jesus spent most of his time healing those who had just about NO faith. Many were unbelievers who, didn’t believe much until they SAW with their eyes!  New believers have a tiny bit of faith, as we know the size of a mustard seed. So where did that leave me and that huge drill bit? as I had been a believer in Jesus Christ for many years.

 I kept driving and felt God placing his hand on the little holes in my heart. The ones that had started off too small even for me to notice. The ones that made me bitter instead of loving as a believer should be.   I realized that those hurting parts that I allowed nobody to see, the vulnerabilities that happen along the way have never been hidden from his greatness and from his love.

 I AM vulnerable and HAVE to be, if God is to keep working in my life. I know that those trials that he has allowed, have been putting that ‘drill bit’ into my heart and I love the words he so gently spoke to me today, as I took a mental picture of that drill.

He brings those trials, so that we can have a hole that HE can full. I realize that every person is born with that vacuum that only God can fill. God’s will for us is that we would  (that we work out our salvation, with fear and in trembling, Philipians).  It is through hardship that we turn to God and HE in turn pours in the love, security, wholeness and healing through those very trials, which God showed me is like that mean looking ‘drill of life’.

We suffer and wonder where we are wondering…a desert,  a dry place… just as we think we are going to fall; when we feel the thirst drying us up like a cracked wilderness THEN Jesus comes along and reassures us that HE was always there. He IS a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

The next time that I am driving and I see those holes been drilled, I will remember that I am like a colourful road, I am under HIS construction and I am being made more like HIM, every day!

 We all need to be reminded that there is always hope.

 Remember that, when you think it is too late, when you heart is too full of pain, when you feel God has abandoned you….. You too are under construction and when God has finished, you will be more beautiful than any words could describe. 

  God could never gives up on you, so please child of God, don’t give up on him!

Mothers

God places such a fierce, loyal, protective,

 Love into the hearts of mothers

He places a love that is willing to die for their child,

 A love that will stay up all night nursing a child that is sick

  A love that will cry tears of joy at the simplest accomplishments of her children

And tears of sorrow when her children are hurt and sad,

Tears of sorrow,

at wrong choices.

It is a love that is deep within her soul,

 that no one can snatch away

It is a love that would move a mountain,

 with a teaspoon if it would help her child out.

It is a love that comes from late nights and early mornings,

A million diapers and feedings,

Fixing scraped knees, and kissing all boo boo’s

A mother’s love is hard to understand,

But know this one thing, it is with a willing heart

 that she gives of herself to love those whom God,

 has placed in her loving care.

She does it with great joy knowing that as she loves her child abundantly

she is being the hands and feet of Jesus here on earth.

My all in all

 Father, my God, my love, my savior, my all, without you, I am but dust on the ground

 But,

 You breathed your life giving spirit, into me your power, your love, you joy

 Everything that you are is in me, why then do I so often forget what you have done for me?

 You were beaten for me, spat on for me, unrecognizable for me

 But,

 Me, I , in my selfishness, I forget the pain, the agony, the sorrow, the loss of dignity, the shame, the sins

 My sins, her sins, their sins, black, yellow and white,

Because of our uniqueness and our wickedness you suffered,

But gladly.

 For you created the seed to grow the tree, you gave man the knowledge to create the tool,  That would cut down that tree

You gave him the knowledge to create the spikes, You even gave him the knowledge to create a cross.

 And

 Then you left it up to us, to decide how wicked we could be

As a race of people

 We didn’t disappoint you of course, showed you all that is vile about your beloved creation.

 And

 In spite of us, You bled, cried, sweated and died,

FOR ME!

 Your sacrifice made willingly so that I would see your great mercy

Your sacrifice that would open the way for me to come before the merciful;

Throne of Grace.

 I cannot even comprehend all that you did for me by your sacrifice, my heart rejoices at the knowledge that one day; I will share in the inheritance of all the saints that you have kept safe in heaven for me!

 Thank you

Merciful father.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ

Have you ever done anything and thought to yourself “oh what is the harm in that, no one will know or care”

 There once was a young man who loved speed. He was not all that particular about what was speeding, as long as he was in it. He was absolutely fearless. He was the kid that always climbed the highest on the monkey bars as school, jumped off the roof of his house to land on the trampoline below, his poor mother was not sure if either he or her would survive his childhood.

 Well the little boy grew into a teenager and acquired his driver’s license. He was so excited and could not wait to get his own vehicle to drive around town. As you can imagine he was a bit reckless behind the wheel and would always try to push the limits of his vehicle, without of course getting a speeding ticket.

 He tried really hard to impress his friends by his skillful driving and how he could speed through residential areas undetected by the law enforcement officers. He loved to squeal his wheels when he came to a stop at stop signs, especially if his buddies were in the vehicle. Some times he did not even bother stopping at the stop signs at all.

 In the same town lived a lady who enjoyed the freedom that her vehicle offered her. She could get her groceries from the store and she could visit her friends and go to all of the social events that she was a part of.

 She decided one day to run a quick errand on the way to visit her girlfriend for tea. She was a very conscientious driver and always checked her mirrors. She tried really hard to obey the stop signs and in all of her driving career had never received a speeding ticket or any other kind of driving infraction.

 She set out to do her errands and came to a stop sign in town. The young man was also fast approaching this same intersection. The people in the vehicle with him were encouraging him to drive faster down this street as it had a bend in it that was really exciting to go around, especially when you were speeding. Of course the young man was never one to back down on any challenge, so he sped up.

 The music was blaring in the back seat and everyone was having a great time in his vehicle. Someone’s cell phone rang and the young man thought it was his and started rummaging through the console of his vehicle for the phone.

 The next thing he knew; he heard a loud bang and looked up. There before him was the unthinkable. He had driven right into the back of a lady’s vehicle. It was badly damaged and so was his vehicle. His passenger that was in the front of the vehicle with him was moaning and holding his head. He had not been wearing a seatbelt and had hit his head on the windshield. He was in shock; he did not know what to do.

 The Moral of the story is this:

If you do something enough times it becomes a habit, and if you choose to disobey the rules set in place to protect you, you will end up having to pay the consequences for that choice.

 Just like this young man who had sped through that intersection so many times he did not even realize it was there anymore. 

 If we choose to ignore these safe guards, we will end up paying a high price for our disobedience.  Notice that this young man didn’t decide that he would speed and answer his telephone while driving for the first time that day. Instead, all of his choices and decisions in the past had led up to the events that occurred that day.

 Be careful what you let slide in your life; you never know where that slippery road will eventually lead you.

 God tells us that we are to guard our hearts, and our minds and our tongues. We are to think on things that will bring life to us and to other people.

I want you to stop and think for a moment about the things that you are letting slide in your life.

 Proverbs 4:23 “Above all else guard your heart as it is the wellspring of life”

 What are you allowing to become “Normal” for you? Are your words a little to sharp to others around you? What are the things that you are reading? Are they things that bring you closer to the lord or does it put a dividing line between you and Him?

 Are you participating in any ungodly practices? Like lust, sexual immorality? What are you letting slide. The enemy of our souls would love nothing better than to draw us away from the dynamic, exciting life that God in His great mercy says that he has given to us, His children.

 If you are allowing anything into your life that will draw you away from our Heavenly father, I ask you to consider stopping. Pray and ask the Lord to forgive you, fill you mind and heart with the word of God.

 You will be amazed how your life will be changed when you start to put positive practices into your life, instead of negative ones.

 God bless you

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ

I have written a short story to illustrate a point, please do not be offended by it, I am not trying to single any one sex out for their behaviour. To be honest, in my own home, I have experienced both sides of this story. I pray that you will read it with objectivity and realise that it comes from a heart that desires you to learn new things about living a life that is holy and pleasing to the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you.

 I have seen many times over the years of my marriage and observing others in their marriage how the power of our words can have either fantastic results or disastrous results.

 Why would I say that, consider with me for a moment, how you speak to someone and the tone of voice that you use; the depth of emotion all determines how the other person is going to respond back to us.

 For example:

 I come home after a long and grueling day at work, my boss had complained about something I did or did not do, the clients that  I was dealing with were none to happy and expressed that to me in a very vocal way. So by the time I got home I was physically and emotionally drained. I was done.

 My wife had a strenuous day dealing with our little children, she had to play referee, break up fights, feed them, change their diapers all day, listen to the screaming for this toy or that, do the laundry, pick up the toys that the children spilt for the tenth time, and make dinner when I get home.  You get the picture, I didn’t even mention half of the things that she did but she knows, and she is exhausted, tired of the kids, of the house and of me, for what reason I could not say at that moment.

 I walk in the door, tired and ask what is for supper. I forgot to say hello because really all I can think of is having some food and sitting down to relax.  I am done.  She is also tired and replies in a less than pleasant way that she had not started it yet. I get annoyed and say to her, “well the house is a mess it does not look like you have done anything all day.  Why on earth could you not do something so little as make me some dinner I am starving.”

 I have worked all day and I want to eat.  I storm into the kitchen, make myself a snack and go upstairs to our bedroom where I eat my snack in the peace and quiet. Have a nice long shower, lay on our bed intending on helping her with dinner, but fall asleep.  I wake up about a half hour later smelling the wonderful smell of my wife’s great cooking. Ah! How I love her, I think to myself. She is making my favorite food.

 Feeling all refreshed I grab some clean clothes and head down stairs. I smile sweetly at her and tell her how wonderful she is for making my favorite dinner. She makes a snide comment about how she has slaved all day. I get a little irritated but don’t respond. My children are crying and I ask her what their problem is and she says to me that “they  are hungry and if I was any kind of husband or father I would know that” I am shocked, what is her problem I think to myself, I am just making conversation.

 Her body language is telling me to back off but her second comment to me has sent me into a tailspin of pure annoyance. I tell her that I to have had a long hard day and I earned the money for this meal so I should be able to enjoy it without all of the attitude.  Lucky for me I had moved out of the kitchen at this point as she was cutting up the tomato’s for the salad and had a knife in her hand.

 We continued to cut each other down all evening; she was annoyed with my insensitivy at not helping out when I got home. To be honest I was just hungry and tired. I did not understand what the big deal was.

 When we finally got into bed, as any hot blooded American male I was ready to show my wife that I still had some stamina left after the day. So I put on my best charms to win her over. I literally got the cold shoulder, she told me to back off and that when I appreciated her a little more then she would be willing to respond to me in a more positive way.

 I was hurt and crushed, not understanding what had happened that evening. I felt like it was a waste of my time even coming home. Why did I bother when I got a response like that all evening? My wife on the other lay on the other side of the bed in tears which she hid. She felt totally unloved and not appreciated as a mother and a wife for any of her efforts.

 How do we get out of this? It seems to be a continuous cycle.

 This is an all to common scenario in marriages, why? For many reasons and I will try and discuss a couple.

 You see the first thing that people who are married to need to understand is that they have the power to build up their spouse or destroy their spouse just by what they say and how they say it.

I realise that it seems like common sense but most of us often speak without giving much thought to what comes out of our mouths. There is a very wise saying that comes from the book of proverbs that says, “Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing” Proverbs 12:18

 We have the choice of how we use our mouths, we have the choice to destroy the other person and tell them off and show them what we really think of them. Or our other alternative is to speak encouragement and love to someone.

 Do you remember that old song that all of us would sing on the play ground, “sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never harm me”

Read that again, do those words even begin to ring true with you. No, they are a lie, words do harm and they harm for a lot longer than what we think they do.

If you think back to your childhood and think of things that people have said to you, I guarantee that you will remember more of the negative and bad things that people have said to you than any of the good. Why is that? It is because words to harm they are like a cancer to us that can eat us alive.

 You are the only person that can change how you speak to other people. You are the one that is the gate keeper of all that comes out of your mouth. Think of the things that you have said to people and see where you would rate yourself. Would you rate yourself as a person who always speaks life giving encouragement to others or do you choose to tear them apart with your opinion. People who choose the latter response often justify it with; well I am just speaking the truth.

 Yes we need to always speak the truth to one another but in love. In a way that would build them up and not tear them down. Now imagine if that husband had come home and recognized that he was tired, and decided instead of being self absorbed that he would hug and kiss his wife and tell her how much he appreciated her hard work at home with their children. She probably would of responded way differently. He might of even being able to persuade her a little extra loving later on.

 It is all about how we speak and react to those around us. If any of this rings true to you, there is hope and you can change how you respond to those whom you love. It takes practice and determination to choose your words well.

 God bless you today

 

The Lord’s bountiful provision

 Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ

 Have you ever given much thought to the Lord’s provision in your life? Have you ever considered the fact that all you have as a Christian comes from the hand of God?

 Well I have been contemplating this exact thing lately, and thought that I would share some of my thoughts on the matter with you.

 I was reading the story of the Israelites and how they had been led out of Egypt by God. He had delivered them from the Egyptian army with a show of his mighty power. He not only parted the Red Sea, but when it was parted, it was on completely dry ground that the people of Israel walked over.

 He displayed his presence in the form of a pillar of cloud and a pillar of fire. Wow, imagine seeing that today, in our day and age, I am sure that we would absolutely freak out. He also sent plagues to the Egyptians that wreaked havoc on their society, all to display himself to the Israelites that he was who he said he was.

 So why is this important to us right now, well in Exodus 16, the Israelites are in the Desert of Sin. (aptly named I think) They watched how God delivered them, they even rejoiced over it. Now you hear them whining over their lack.

 You would of thought that they would have been confident in the Lord’s mighty provision already, because of all that they had been through. Instead they were complaining, they were hungry and wanted food, they even went as far as saying:

   “If only we had died by the Lord’s hand in Egypt! There we sat around pots of meat and ate all the food we wanted, but you have brought us out into this desert to starve this entire assembly to death” (Exodus 16:3)

 They grumbled against the lord, no longer trusting that He would provide for them, remember He had just brought them out of bondage, and they wanted to go back to it for some stew in a pot!

 The Lord did indeed provide for them, he sent manna (translated from Hebrew, what is it?) and he also sent quail. (Which is a bird that is low flying and easy to catch and kill)

 So my reflection has gone something like this; how often is it that the Lord provides for us in our daily lives, both spiritually and physically and yet we groan and complain about the apparent lack in our lives.

 The lord tells us in the book of Matthew 6:25- 34 that we are not to worry about our daily provisions as he will take care of it. Yet, we work longer hours, we scrimp and save every last penny, we trust in our own ability to provide and in the end, wear ourselves out. That is not God’s best for us.

The lord reminded me of something that happened many years ago. We were living in a small town in Northern Alberta, and we were planning on going to a major city for the weekend. On the Tuesday before we were to leave, I felt that the lord wanted me to take a whole chicken to friends of ours who we would be visiting.

 Well at first I have to admit I thought it was a really odd request, why on earth did I need to take a chicken to them? So I did what came naturally to me at the time, I questioned the Lord and even tried to fight what he had told me to do. I did not mention it to my husband, as he would have thought that I was completely crazy.

  I kept praying and telling God all of the good reasons why I should not take this chicken down to our friends. Like the fact that if I took this chicken down to them, I would not have one for my family.

  I also did not have a lot of food in my freezer at the time, and was planning on using the little that we had left when I got back. I also had paid $10.00 for it, (that was pretty expensive back then for a chicken).  I was looking at the loss of my chicken more than I was looking to God and his provision of that chicken.

 Now I don’t know if you have ever tried to resist the lord, but when you are in the process of resisting him, you are miserable, and it really is not a pleasant experience.

 By Thursday morning I had finally agreed with the lord that I would take the chicken to my friend. I was at peace within my spirit as I had finished fighting with the Lord, and said yes!

 Later that afternoon, the husband of a fellow sister in Christ, knocked on my door. He was on his way to work and his wife had asked him to stop by my house. He handed me a heavy plastic bag. I looked with utter amazement inside the bag, yes you guessed it, inside was a whole fat chicken!

 I did not know what to do, I laughed and cried, and confessed to him and my husband right there and then, that the lord had told me very clearly that he wanted me to take this chicken to my friend. That I was to trust him, but in my natural self all I could see was my loss.

 God, saw his provision for me and my family. So with great rejoicing, I took the chicken to my friend, told her of the wonderful way that God had provided, and reminded her that He not only loved her so much as to provide a chicken, but through his great mercy, taught me that when he told me to do something, he would not only provide, but that I would always have enough.

 My friends, I want to encourage you to put your trust in our heavenly father. He will never leave you, nor will he ever let you go without what you need. He always provides, sometimes in the most bizarre ways, but his provision is always there and on time for our need.

God bless you

 

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ

Have you ever wandered what it really means to be in Christ Jesus? I certainly have and the bible is full of illustrations that speak of this very thing. In the previous two articles in this latest section you can have a look and see many of the promises associated with the fact that we are in Christ Jesus.

I want to talk briefly about a couple of the blessings and promises that are given to us as believers in Jesus Christ. They have come to mean a great deal to me over the years as I have fought the monster of “low self esteem”.

My self esteem was so low that I did not believe that I was capable of doing anything, or have an opinion about anything. I really struggled in this area until God slowly started to build me back up. What do I mean by that, well God through his Holy Spirit, which I have living inside of me as a believer in Christ Jesus, started the process of lovingly showing me that I was loved by him, and that because I was loved, I was given the gift of his Holy Spirit.

Through devouring the scriptures in study, I learnt a fundamental truth that was life altering for me, and this truth in wrapped up neatly in a few verses in the New Testatment.

What is that truth you might wander, well it speaks of what Christ has given me as a gift, and has generously poured into my life. I was so excited, as I realised that in Christ Jesus,  I was capable of so much more than what I had thought possible. The great news is that, that promise is not just for me, but for you to. God through his great love for us, has generously given us everything that we need to live a godly life that is holy, set apart and devoted to Him.

These verses have had such a great impact on my life and my thinking about who I am and what I could do as a child of the Most High God. I pray that it will have the same kind of effect on your life as it has on mine.

1 Corinthians 4-9

4I always thank God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus. 
5For in him you have been enriched in every way—in all your speaking and in all your knowledge— 
6because our testimony about Christ was confirmed in you. 
7Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed
8He will keep you strong to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 
9God, who has called you into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful.

Brothers and Sisters, these verses are so important for us to hide in our hearts.

Verse 5 says that we have been enriched in every way, not just a little bit of enrichment, or what he could afford, or a little dab. We have been enriched in Christ Jesus in every way, in our speaking to others about Christ, and in our knowledge, not just on spiritual matters but in every way!

God showed me an important truth in this verse and that is this, we have been called by Him, from before time began, he set us apart to impact the generation that we are now living in. We all have been given different talents and abilities to perform the different tasks that he has set before us to do.

He then poured out through His mighty Holy Spirit, everything that we would need to be able to have the knowledge and wisdom to live our lives, in a way that was not only pleasing to Him but that it brought us fullfilment and an abundant life. That means that we really are capable of way more than what we think we are capable of doing. God has given us the tools to do it.

So why don’t we truly walk in the fullness of His promises to us, unfortunately it is because we do not believe Him. It has been a huge struggle for me to overcome this unbelief in my heart towards God and his promises for me. I have to be honest when I say to you though, that one day I  got tired of living off of the scraps of “just enough” I wanted to believe God for the full enrichment that He promised me as his daughter.

You, my brother and sister have the same promise. You too can rise above the mediocre christian life and be all that God has called you to be. I challenge you to believe Him today, that He truly has given you everything you need for knowledge and speach, and all the spritual blessings that you need. Start living today, like that is a truth. It is and He wants you to believe it and live it.

Rise above, and know that He who is faithful will keep you safe until the day you die, you have nothing to fear and you can in Jesus Christ truly live an abundant, extra ordinary life.

Believe today!

What I am in Christ

What God says He is… He is. What God says I am… I am.
What God says He has… He has. What God says I have… I have.
What God says He can do… He can do. What God says I can do… I can
do.
Therefore by faith in God’s Word and by the blood of Jesus, His
death, burial and resurrection,
I acknowledge, believe, and confess that in Him…….
I am loved, forgiven, cleansed, and released from sin with all its
consequences. I am prosperous, anointed, blest, holy, righteous, free
from condemnation, justified, sanctified and glorified, seated with
the Anointed One, Jesus in heavenly places of power, authority,
privilege and blessing.

I am a son of God, an heir of God and a joint
heir with Jesus Christ. I am His ambassador, His workmanship, His new
creation, a member of the body of Christ, a holy temple for God’s
habitation, a witness, a worshipper, and an effective worker for the
kingdom of heaven.

I am a living sacrifice and a walking, talking
demonstration of God’s amazing wisdom and grace. I am an overcomer.
I have healing, patience, love, boldness, confidence, and full
salvation abounding to me and through me. The riches of God’s glory
and His grace are mine in abundance.

I have God’s life and His Word is in me. His Spirit is in me.

I have joy unspeakable, peace unsurpassable, and love inseparable.

I have the resources and power
of heaven at my disposal. I have everything I need to accomplish
everything God has called me to be and do. I have the will and
strength to do God’s perfect will. I have a destiny of glory and
greatness before me.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. I can forgive,
love, believe, hope, endure, excel, dream, and become everything God
wants me to do and be. Christ is in me. Jesus lives in me, Jesus
prays through me, witnesses through me, forgives through me, dreams
through me, loves, hopes, gives, serves, overcomes and achieves the
impossible through me.

Hallelujah! Thank you Jesus! To You belongs all glory forever and ever!
