Letters from a Loving Father Pt.7

Hey Guys...I'm coming back, maybe after my vacation, but I love all of you, that you for your comments and here is the last installment of the Letters series...hope you enjoy...

Beloved,

I AM the Lover of your Souls. There is none that compares to my love and the love I have for you. I want you to realize that. I know how easily you can get heavy laden with the little mundane tasks. It is all in my design. I have things under control. Please believe me when I say that. I care for you so deeply and I want to pour out that love and care all over you until not only your saucer is wet but the very floor. I want you to allow me to fill you up with my love so that you can spill over and wet others saucers.

You are mine and I do want you to hide in the shadow of my wings. I am truly pleased to give you the keys to the kingdom. I have embraced you in my loving arms and I shall never part from you, not even for a moment. I deeply love you. I deeply love you. Did you hear that, I DEEPLY LOVE Y…

Letters from a Loving Father Pt. 6

Loving Child,

I heal the brokenhearted and bind up their wounds. I am fighting for you. I will win the war and when the arrows beat down I will cover you as a shield. You do not need to bear your grief or sorrows for I hold them in the hallow of my hand. Do you realize that when you dwell on the things that you do not do well or the sins you have committed that you bar my very blood from reaching your soul? You don’t allow me to give you the forgiveness you desire for you are mired in your pity. Let go and let me heal. I can show you mercy and loving kindness and restore a new heart in you. I make all things new all things holy.

I am Light and darkness cannot dwell where I dwell. Do not go on living in spiritual darkness, you are only lying to yourself. You will experience wonderful fellowship and joy with each other and me if you would but live in my Light. Confess your sins to me and I will forgive you and cleanse you of every wrong. You can depend on me.

Your Protector,
Lord

Letters from a Loving Father Pt. 5

Sorry I've gotten behind on this guys...here it is...

Blessed Soul,

I do not need the bulls you sacrifice or the blood of goats. What I want instead is your true thanks to me and a remembrance of the vows you made to me. I want you to trust me in times of trouble and I will rescue you and give you my glory. Basically, I want all of you. The very breath you breathe. I want it all. I desire it all. I will have it all for I am Sovereign and just. I want to see my kingdom manifest through you.

Never forget the things I’ve taught you. If you want a long and satisfying life, closely follow my instructions. Never tire of loyalty and kindness. Hold these virtues tightly. Write them deep within your heart. Trust me completely with your very soul. In everything you do, put me first, and I will direct you and crown your efforts with success. I know your inmost being for I knit you in your Mother’s womb. You cannot hide from me. I desire it all. I want to reveal the destiny I have for your life,…

'Tis a Joy to Sing to You!

Oh my goodness! I DID IT!!!! Well, I didn't, God totally did...I sang in church Sunday night. It was Nichole Nordeman's song "I Am"...I'm just beyond humbled at the grace God has given. I'm not sure what it means, and I'm struggling so with so much right now personaly, family, work, etc...but I just know, because of that small measure of grace Christ showed...that all this stuff will work itself out. Thank you everyone who commented and encouraged me. Thank you Kat for dropping by and kind of pushing me a little bit extra to do it (by the way I can't access your blog...:( God is just so faithful and good!

I was browsing blogs and you know what you guys spoke to me in so many ways...Becky talking about Risking Everything and listening and following...Claire talking about balance and perspective, and Jettybetty talking about Surrender...my gracious God was speaking to me. You guys are awesome.

Please remember Gayla as her Mother is close to going home (w…

I "Heart" Memphis!

Well, folks...I have tried to catch up and drop by all your blogs...sent a few post to my email to read later, etc...you all have been so busy it is difficult to catch up...didn't respond, but read them all...God is moving.

I just wanted you to know that, well, my baby sister leaves tomorrow for Memphis Tennessee. That's right she is moving...moving there because she feels that is where God wants her...she has got an apartment and the things she is bringing, but nothing else. Keep her in your thoughts and prayers has she is moving, in finding a job, and her health...she is coming down with some kind of viral infection (I swear she is Job)

I also ask for real prayers and direction in my life as I begin to plan a trip to North Carolina at the end of this month. Just pray from beginning to end, from preparation for the trip to visiting, to what God wants to tell me, to where He wants to lead me. I'm like Kat "Amy" I don't want to do anything without God moving in …

Emotional Purity

First, thank you for everyone who took the time out of their busy schedule to respond to my last post. It thrills my soul when my sisters got my back, ya know what I mean. That is so awesome “Pilot Mom” about your son…I’ll keep him in my prayers as well…I’m holding onto faith! Thanks “Kat” for everything, Becky you move me out of complacency, all of you are blessings to my soul.

I just have one more short thought on the same topic. You know there is much talk on saving yourself physically for marriage. That is marvelous, wonderful, and beautiful…etc… Even if there are questions on what boundaries you should cross, date/ don’t date/ hold hands/ kiss/ don’t kiss/ careful where you put your hands, etc… there is an opinion out there from everyone. However, if I mind my Ps and Qs and behave myself like a little prim and proper lady, let’s say for the sake of saying it, that I don’t even kiss…BUT…in my heart I fall in love with every guy that is remotely nice to me or that I find remotely at…

Are You My Brother?

So, a few nights ago I was cruising through the channels on my television winding down from a long day of work and I flipped through to TBN and went on passed. My brain registered that there was an extremely attractive young man on the channel so, my curiosity peeked, I turned back and noticed that he was indeed an extremely attractive young man and I thought I would stop by and see what he had to say. Needless to say I was blown away. It was Jason Illian, a very handsome 30 years young man…Jason was a football player at Texas Christian University and graduated at the top of his class, in 2005 he was on the Bachelorette and the reason for him being on TBN, well…he was talking about his virginity. Now, here it a 6’4”, black hair, ….well let’s just say tall dark and handsome man, who by all rights could probably get a girl to do whatever he wished, and here he is being a man and saying I’m a virgin, there is nothing wrong with that, and it is time that we start raising men to be Godly e…

Love Letters from the Father Pt. 2

Oh My Beloved,

How blessed I am to commune with you this evening. All I ask is that you allow me to love on you a little. Do you even realize how my heart delights in you? You are my beautiful masterpieces orchestrated by my very hand. I did not craft you by mistake and there is no room for junk in my art gallery. When I see you displayed on my wall my heart flutters and my lungs fill with pride. I am so completely in love with you. You are more precious to me than all the lilies of the valley, the birds in the air, and the grass of the fields. You captivate my very being. You are fearfully and wonderfully made.

I have created in you a pure heart and I daily renew your spirit if you would only let my love for you spill forth. I will never cast you from my presence and I have given you the Holy Spirit. I want to restore in you the joy of your salvation and delight in watching the passion dance in your eyes. I want to give you a willing spirit and sustain you through the grind of daily li…
