BREAKING GROUND

BREAKING GROUND

The ground is hard, dry from no rain
Winter is far from my eyes
My body weak and in pain
My vision is clear of what the hard work will bring
Every stroke of the pick breaks a piece of my insides
Like the pounding waves bringing in the tides
The clouds begin to form, dark and gloomy
Carrying with them doubts flowing through me
The rain begins to fall covering the body of land
Filling the heart of it and turning it into sand
I begin to feed the soil as the seeds leave my hands
Soaking in the joy of the rain upon my face
I realized a change was taking place

Galatians 6:7

A MOMENT IN HEAVEN

A MOMENT IN HEAVENA MOMENT IN HEAVEN

I awoke this morning to the birds singing
I went outside, there was a sense of well being
The air was so fresh, a calm breeze blew across my face
It was so quiet, as if everyone was sleeping
I found peace and joy in my heart
As if the world had stopped just for a moment
The longing in my heart to draw near to You
I closed my eyes and pictured You in my head
The flowers in the garden began to bloom
The trees filled with the shiniest fruit
The grass grew seven shades greener
The grape vines that never produce were full
A rainbow had criss-crossed another rainbow across the sky
It was most beautiful
A stream came rushing through my feet
Fish with wings jumping over me
The sky a shade of blue I had never seen before
A Man in white came walking towards me with a gleam in his eye
I have never seen Your face, but I knew it was You
Lord please don’t make me leave this place
He spoke to my heart with a smile on His face
I realized there was still more to be saved
With a tear in my eye, I smiled
He knew my love for Him
Keeping all in my heart of that day
I will seek all that You lead me to

Isaiah 65:17

A New Time Is Coming

17 “·Look [T Behold], I will ·make [create] new heavens and a new earth,
    and people will not remember the ·past [former things]
    or ·think about those things [bring them to heart/mind].
18 My people will be happy and joyful forever
    because of the things I will ·make [create].
I will make a Jerusalem that is full of joy,
    and I will make her people a delight.
19 Then I will rejoice over Jerusalem
    and be delighted with my people.
There will never again be heard in that city
    the sounds of ·crying [weeping] and ·sadness [crying].
20 There will never be a ·baby [infant] from that city
    who lives only a few days.
And there will never be an older person
    who doesn’t ·have a long life [L live out his days].
A person who ·lives a hundred years will be called young [or dies at a hundred years will still be considered a child],
    and a person who dies before he is a hundred will be thought of as a ·sinner [or accursed].
21 In that city those who build houses will live there.
    Those who plant vineyards will get to eat their grapes [C as opposed to times of conquest, when homes are confiscated and crops are stolen].
22 No more will one person ·build a house and someone else live there [L build and another inhabit].
    One person will not ·plant a garden and someone else eat its fruit [L plant and another eat].
·My people will live a long time,
    as trees live long [L For like the days of a tree
    shall be the days of my people].
My chosen people will live there
    and enjoy the ·things they make [L work of their hands].
23 They will ·never again work for nothing [not labor in vain].
    They will never again give birth to children ·who die young [L doomed for misfortune/disaster].
All my people will be blessed by the Lord;
    they and their ·children [descendants; seed] will be blessed.
24 I will ·provide for their needs [L answer] before they ·ask [call],
    and I will ·help them [L hear] while they are still ·asking for help [L speaking].
25 The wolf and the lamb will ·eat together in peace [feed/graze together].
    The lion will eat hay like an ox,
    and ·a snake on the ground will not hurt anyone [the serpent’s food will be dust; Gen. 3:14].
They will not hurt or destroy each other
    on all my holy mountain,”
says the Lord.

When I wrote this poem I was at my dinning table early In the morning drinking my coffee when I was moved to go out into the backyard. The minute I got outside I felt the Lords presence and closed my eyes when I had the vision of the beautiful poem. I believe we can find a piece of heaven here on earth. Heaven is reachable through our hearts. Our hearts are the door way to Heaven. When we open our hearts in worship to Jesus we enter into His presence, the kingdom of God! Heaven is the finish line of the race we are in. Heaven will be the frosting on the Jesus! Heaven in all its glory will not compare to Him. We Have access to Him now!

Everything in this life has a current that pulls out into the deep sin of this world. Drawing us away from His kingdom and His presence! Opening our hearts to Him is like swimming against the current of the ocean, helping you escape the current of this world and finding the safety in His truth. The more we go against the current, the more we find ourselves on the narrow path walking in His kingdoms glory. The more we are in touch with God and the more we gain a taste of what is to come.

I want to encourage you to go against the current of this life and have a moment in heaven today. The moments in heaven give us all we need to reach our full purpose in this life, leading us into all of His glory and bringing with us as many as possible to heaven eternal!!

Thank you for following this blog I am encouraged by your passion for Him. As I read many of your blogs I am so touched by the diversity of Him in all of you. God bless you in all of your moments with Him until we are with Him completely for all et

THE LOVE OF THE FATHER

THE LOVE OF THE FATHER PSD_edited-1The love of God is hard for many to understand, The reason for that is our flesh. The flesh condemns us to the grave. Our sin and flesh keep us from God. The enemy Satin uses our weakness, the flesh to lie to us and keep us from the truth that is spirit. The spirit of truth! Faith is spirit! Christ promises are spirit. The word of God is spirit! It is the spirit that covers us, It is the spirit that sets us free. If we walk by the flesh and the lies of the flesh it only brings lies and death, but Christ made intersession for us that is through His spirit. So we must walk by the spirit of truth and put away the lies of the flesh  that only bring death.

If you are a perfectionist the flesh and lies are your worst enemy! You see you are a sinner, we all are and unless you realize that it is Gods spirit and death on the cross that has cleansed us and has set us free, can you receive the gift of the spirit and walk in it. Walking with God just as you are, imperfect. Following God and walking with Him through all your mistakes and imperfections. Trusting Gods perfect work on the cross will finish its work. This is walking by the spirit.

Romans 8

Expanded Bible (EXB)

Be Ruled by the Spirit

So now, those who are in Christ Jesus are not ·judged guilty[a] [condemned; punished for their sins]. [L For] ·Through [or In] Christ Jesus the ·law [principle; or power] of the Spirit that brings life set you[b] free from the ·law [principle; or power] that brings sin and death. The law [C of Moses] was without power, because the law was made weak by our ·sinful selves [sinful nature; T flesh]. But God did what the law could not do. He sent his own Son to earth ·with the same human life that others use for sin [or in a body like ours, prone to sin; L in the likeness of sinful flesh]. By sending his Son ·to be an offering for sin [L concerning sin], God ·used a human life to destroy sin [L condemned sin in the flesh]. He did this so that ·we could be the kind of people that the law demands that we be [L the law’s righteous/just requirements would be fulfilled in us]. Now we do not ·live [walk; C life’s journey] following our ·sinful selves [sinful nature; T flesh], but following the Spirit.

God’s Love in Christ Jesus

31 So what should we say ·about this [in response to these things]? If God is for us, ·no one can defeat us [L who is against us?]. 32 He did not spare his own Son but ·gave him [or delivered him over; C to death] for us all. So with Jesus, ·God will surely [how could he not…?] give us all things. 33 Who can ·accuse [bring an accusation/charge against] the people God has chosen? No one, because God is the One who ·makes them right [declares them righteous; justifies them]. 34 Who can ·say God’s people are guilty [condemn; pronounce punishment]? No one, because Christ Jesus died, but he was also raised from the dead, and now he is on God’s right ·side [hand; Ps. 110:1], ·appealing to God [interceding; pleading] for us. 35 ·Can anything [or Who can] separate us from the love Christ has for us? Can ·troubles [trials; tribulations] or ·problems [distress; hardship] or ·sufferings [persecution] or ·hunger [famine] or ·nakedness [destitution] or danger or ·violent death [L sword]? 36 As it is written in the Scriptures:

“For ·you [your sake] we are ·in danger of death [L being put to death] all the time.
    ·People think we are worth no more than [L We were considered like] sheep ·to be killed [about to be slaughtered; Ps. 44:22].”

This is the love of the Father the love that has surely set us free by His spirit! So live by the spirit!

Psalm 68

Expanded Bible (EXB)

Praise God Who Saved the Nation

For the director of music. A psalm of David. A song.

68 Let God rise up and scatter his enemies;
    let those who hate him ·run away [flee] from him.
Blow them away as smoke
    is ·driven [blown] away by the wind [Hos. 13:3].
As wax melts before a fire,
    let the wicked ·be destroyed [perish] before God [Mic. 1:4].
But ·those who do right [the righteous] should be glad
    and should rejoice before God;
they should be happy and glad.

Sing to God; ·sing praises [make a psalm] to his name.
Prepare the way for him
    who rides ·through the desert [on the clouds; C as on a chariot; 18:10–19; 104:3; Is. 19:1; Dan. 7:13–14; Luke 21:27; Rev. 1:7],
whose name is the Lord.
    Rejoice before him.
God is in his holy ·Temple [L abode].
    He is a father to orphans [10:14; 146:9],
    and he defends the widows [146:9].
God gives the lonely a home.
    He leads prisoners out ·with joy [with singing; or to prosperity],
but ·those who turn against God [L the rebellious] will live in a dry land.

May this Christmas be yours in Christ Bless you! www.fullofrosesinspirationals.com

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!
