years slipping.
pages turning.
seasons changing.
constantly moving. Stepping. Growing. Ever forward. Ever quickly.

to such a beautiful place.

healed and being healed.
Renewed and being made new.
A place of restoration and freedom.
no fear, guilt or regret,,
This place that You’ve brought me to,,

and yet I hear You whispering,,
daughter, don’t forget.

don’t forget the chains,
         that held you down so tightly.
the darkness,
        you walked around in blindly.
don’t forget the wounds,,
        that have been turned into scars.
the past and the rescue,,
        that have made you who you are.
don’t forget the place,,
       that you were lost,           and found in.
the mountains that I moved,,
       so you could be forgiven.

reconciled and chosen,,
a new heart beating—no longer hardened.
sitting at Your table,,
replacing memories of being thrown out of the Garden.

this bread,
                    it is My body.
this wine,
                   it is My blood.

of My sacrifice.
enter in to My surrender.

daughter,, do this to remember.

“the joy of the LORD is your strength."        
                                                                     Nehemiah 8:10

“but let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them ever sing for joy, and spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may exult in you. “
                                                                            Psalm 5:11
“count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know  the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.”
Psalm 16:11
“You make known to me the path of life; in Your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore. “
                                         Psalm 16:11
“light is sown for the righteous, and joy for the upright in heart.”
                                                                                                              Psalm 97:11

“yet I will rejoice in the LORD; I will take joy in the God of my salvation.”
                                                                                                                       Habakkuk 3:18

“may you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy…”         
Colossians 1:11                                                                               

these things I have spoken to you, that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. “ John 15:11

“for the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.”
                    Romans 14:7

There is something powerful in the joy of the Lord,, something supernatural, otherworldly. it can't be can't be imitated.
it may not change circumstances,, but it changes changes changes responses, actions, words. it provides evokes awakens breeds brings Him glory.

                  oh what joy we have in the Holy Spirit!

[receive My joy today].

a gap filled.

it’s so easy to feel forgotten.



out of place.

somehow even in what is meant to be our Body, we feel insignificant.

we doubt the gifts He’s given us.

we believe the lie that we have nothing to offer.

but His heart is crying out,,

                          You are needed.

For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned. For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness. Let love be genuine.”
                                      Romans 12:3-9a

When you believe the lie that you are not, and you shrink back,, a vital piece and function of the Body is missing.

Walk in humble obedience. Stir up the gift that He has given you. Bless others.

 Even when no one else notices,, He sees you.
