LIFE FOUND IN A STUMP

PLANTING TREESd

LIFE FOUND IN A STUMP

Israel has fallen, the tree stands no more
The axe has been swung, and down she comes
Where the tree stood, only a stump remains
Damaged, rotting, broken and stained
And so the song is sung by the Angels tongue
I will make the rivers flow on barren heights
And springs within the valley’s
I will turn the desert into pools of water
And the parched ground into springs
See I am doing a new thing, do you not perceive
And all whom are wise shall see his glory
He set the trees together
“I will put the cedar in the wilderness
The acacia and the myrtle and the olive tree
I will place the juniper in the desert
Together with the box tree and the cypress
And though they all get cut down
And only their stumps remain
He made a promise through the ages
A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse
From his roots a Branch will bear fruit
Through Jesus hallelujah

I want to give you some insight to this deep poem full of scriptures. At a time when Israel was fallen from God, the scriptures tell us that They were still Gods chosen and our God was about to do something, send Jesus! God describes Israel like a tree cut down and left to be a stump! He speaks of a shoot that will come out of the stump bringing new life and fruit!

He also talks about trees that God, Jesus will put together which speaks of each of us and so the poem is about each of us when we feel like a cut down tree, that a savior Jesus was sent to bring a shoot from our stumps to bring fruit and new life!
The shoot is Jesus, God bless!

HE TAKES US PLACES OF A DIFFERENT KIND

A MOMENT IN HEAVEN

HE TAKES US PLACES OF A DIFFERENT KIND

From the hill top, all I see is green
The rain that falls is seen
As it falls over the forest
and reflects off the leaves
The sun breaking through the clouds
Beams of light, as it gleams through the trees
Beautiful is not the word to describe, but glory
He took His time to tell a story
As I walk down the hill, the rain is pouring
It strikes my face with a slight sting
I’m ready for shelter
Very little on this journey did I bring
As I get to the edge of the the forest
I get out my sheer to cut a path
Looking forward to begin drying from the bath
The forest is very dark, with sunlight in certain places
Giants leaves, vines, bushes, and trees
Sounds of birds singing, and the buzzing of bees
little did I know what this journey would bring
I found shelter and a place to lay my head and then I dreamed
There was an Angel that glided down from the sky
Terrified, I asked myself, why, she was here
She said, this rain forest is a magical place
Where you will find the wonders of Gods grace
Everything here symbolizes spiritual truth
It is here if you open your heart, you’ll regain your youth
Your mind will open, your eyes will see, Him in everything
Journey, discover, enjoy the wonders of this holy ground
Look around and listen for His still small voice
when you wake, you can come back to visit, it’s a choice
At anytime open your heart and your mind to the spirit
In no time you will hear it, the rain pouring down
The wonderful sound of the trees blowing their leaves
You will see the unicorn glowing through the trees
As she makes her way to the falls, where the river calls to Him
Glory is the God on high, when we enter into the presence of the divine
He takes us places of a different kind

Jeremiah 33:3New International Version (NIV)

3 ‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’

Is it wrong to put things like unicorns, the word magic, and female angels in a Christian post? Have things gotten so legalistic that simple imagination is seen as evil or mythology. Is it not possible there are creatures of beauty in heaven we have no concept of. I love to write, and I love figures of beauty. By no means do I desire to mislead anyone’s beliefs. Or add something that isn’t in the bible. I believe God knows our hearts and loves us to dream of beautiful things even if they are not mentioned in the bible. If it bothers you I will remove them, let me know!

A TIME FOR THE SWORD

A TIME FOR THE SWORD

Where there are clouds
There are lies ready to shout
In the wilderness it’s dark
Once inside it’s terror is stark
Where the Jedi is trained
Where a death remains
Of ones old self
The wilderness is transforming
A time to be conforming
To the one that is truth
A time to battle the burden of proof
Trusting on the Word alone
A time to set the tone
For future events
A time to build a tent
For the Lord
A time for the sword

Matthew 4:1-25 [Full Chapter]

[ Jesus Is Tested in the Wilderness ] Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.” …

If we are to walk as Jesus walked, we will be tested as He was tested. We will not have the perfect victory as He had, but we will see His perfect victory through our imperfections! Sometimes we create the wilderness experience ourselves by our own choices.

Exodus 7:16

Then say to him, ‘The Lord, the God of the Hebrews, has sent me to say to you: Let my people go, so that they may worship me in the wilderness. But until now you have not listened.

Whether we created it ourselves or God simply led us into the wilderness, the wilderness experience is intended for us to come to a place of submission and worship to God. We will remain defeated until we are exhausted of all our efforts and learn to rely totally upon Him!

Leviticus 16:10

But the goat chosen by lot as the scapegoat shall be presented alive before the Lord to be used for making atonement by sending it into the wilderness as a scapegoat.

Notice the scapegoat was sent into the wilderness, just as the Israelite’s, Jesus, Job, Moses, You and I. It is important in our walks. It is probably the most important time for training purposes. How you come out of it will define the soldier you will be for God!

Psalm 15:1 [ Psalm 15 ] [ A psalm of David. ]

Lord, who may dwell in your sacred tent? Who may live on your holy mountain?

There must be the making of a sacred tent in the wilderness. A place for you and the Lord. A place where you throw out sin, and worship the Lord during the wilderness experience.

Job 22:23

If you return to the Almighty, you will be restored: If you remove wickedness far from your tent

Psalm 27:5

For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent and set me high upon a rock.

Psalm 61:4

I long to dwell in your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of your wings.

ALREADY BOUGHT AND PAID FOR

ALREADY BOUGHT AND PAID FOR

I wonder if God loves to shop
I bet He does, as He goes from yard to yard
Looking at people’s junk
They say one mans junk is another mans treasure
I believe God looks for junk and turns it into treasure
The biggest job for God is not finding the junk
The junk is everywhere
It’s convincing the junk, it’s treasure
One must understand the power in His word
One must dare to believe, and receive
I wonder if God is shopping at your house today
I wonder if He was, what you would have to say
Would you tell Him why you are not worth the time or day
Would you tell Him there is better junk then you
Or do you already since, you are more than junk
Or do you feel like a ship that’s already sunk
There is something special about junk
Some junk is priceless when found by one with knowledge
Some junk when in the right hands
Can be worth more than when new
I happen to ponder this thought, then thought of you
I hope this message is getting through
He knows your inner struggles, the rejection you feel
The power in His message is real
You just have to believe
Quit comparing yourself and receive
There is a miracle knocking at your door
Push through your thoughts, open your heart
There is something beautiful in store
That something beautiful is you
Already bought and paid for

Zechariah 9:14 The Lord Will Appear

YOU WALKED WITH ME

YOU WALKED WITH ME0039

(You walked with me) was written at a time of reflection. looking back at my walk with God and seeing where He was every step of the way. I know at times it may seem like God is far away or that He is too busy dealing with bigger problems than yours. I can tell you that the bible says that God is Omnipresent! He is everywhere, all the time and He is with each and everyone of us in the deepest most intimate way. Our God is a Big God, He is capable of doing many things that are beyond our understanding.

God pays so much attention to us, He has counted the number of hairs on our head. So faith must take us to a deeper place in our hearts to see God. Our hearts are the door way to Gods kingdom. The only way to see Him is to go deep into your heart and there He will be sitting beside you ready to speak wisdom, love, forgiveness and promise. This life and it’s testimony is all about will you believe God and the scriptures? The reason we have scriptures are for the testimony of other believers and the word of the living God. When we look at the people of the bible and the incredible stories of faith that play out, we can identify with them in so many areas. We can see their struggles with sin, their doubt, their disobedience, their trials, times of great defeat and great victories, times of great loss and times of incredible blessings, most of all their lack of faith or their tremendous courage and faith. We get to see the transformation that takes place like with Apostle Paul for example. A man persecuting the church to become one of the most powerful men of God!!! (You walked with me) Each of them in their own right will and have said those words ( You walked with me)!!!!

24 Enoch walked with God [C he had a close relationship with God; Heb. 11:5–6]; one day Enoch could not be found, because God took him [C like Elijah (2 Kin. 2:11), he did not die].

Stories like Enoch the bible clearly says he walked with God. Imagine if you respond to Gods call, trusting Him, walking it out with Him in faith. Regardless of how perfect you are. Just as you stand, to choose to walk with God and respond to His calling. Joseph walked with God, his own brothers ripped off his coat, poured goats blood on it, threw him into a pit, sold him into slavery and left him as dead. Joseph was thrown into prison on several occasions until God brought him to his purpose. You see reflection on our walks are very needed to see where we have come from and where we are going. This life takes courage and prayer but it is the greatest journey one could ever go on.

My apologies I haven’t posted in some time. I have been very busy lots going on. I will try to post more often. I hope you are blessed by my blog. May your walk with Him be deep and fruitful. If you are still waiting to respond to His call, I encourage you to know the only true living God Christ Jesus!
