I HAVE COME TO SET YOU FREE

I HAVE COME TO SET YOU FREE

I see you, I’m waiting
My dear, time is fading
I long for you to see
I have come, to set you free

Everyday I wait, for you to hear my call
The life I have for you, delivered from the fall
A renewed life, will come to be
I have come, to set you free

If you could open your heart to me
You would see, what your life in me would bring
My love for you, would sing
I have come to set you free

So let the clouds be moved
So your heart can be soothed
Let my light in, let it gleam
I have come to set you free

Let your faith be awakened
Let your hope be renewed
There is promise waiting for you
I have come to set you free

I come across people everyday that do not understand what Jesus has done for them. I see the love of God reaching towards them yet they refuse to see. If they would make the smallest effort to find the truth, what God would do in their life. If you are reading this and the person I described sounds like you. Please make a simple prayer from your heart asking Jesus to show you that he is real and open your heart for Him to show you. I am confident He will do Just that. May you know the full love and understanding of our Lord Jesus Christ.

WHEAT WITHOUT WEEDS

A MOMENT IN HEAVEN

There I stood at the wheat gardens edge
As I stood looking over the hedge
I noticed something odd with the wheat
I took notice because there right at my feet
Weeds were growing, they were there without me knowing
Only when they are full grown, their differences are shown
It caused me to ponder with thought
About the weeds in my own life
Full grown I take notice and strive
To change those things in me that don’t belong
If not dealt with they take over becoming strong
And hard to pull out
Their seeds blow and grow even more
Until they grow out of control and life is torn
By my poor choices
Though when I notice and fight to pull them out
The wheat of my heart rises and shouts
Of the bread to eat
It’s so sweet
Wheat without weeds

CORD OF THREE STRANDS

CORD OF THREE STRANDS

Connected by cord and strands
Woven together, though built on sand
Two cords standing alone
There is love, but missing the stone, to build upon
Two cords, still missing the third
You wonder if your heart is heard
Your efforts go misunderstood
Carry on, you wonder if you should
Your hope is lacking the nerve
To stay on this broken curve, Of mixed emotions
The notion to look above
Might you see heavens glorious Dove
Though two can keep each other warm
Can they withstand the storms
Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves
When two hearts get pushed apart, us this life tells
It just might be making room for the third
A strand the Dove carries by word
The truth of life spoken
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

Ecc 4:12

When God is the third strand, there is nothing you can’t do.

GOD READS MY BLOG

I FOUND CHRIST_edited-1

TO BE KNOWN

Do you see me
Can you hear my heart
Have I poured out, and given part
Of my treasures deep within
Has who I am, been truly given
To you as a gift
I can’t see you
Do you think you know me
Together by words, are we free
Can we fill each others needs
To be known

Does God read my blog? I believe He does. I believe He is my number one fan. The desire to be known, and there is one who knows us more than anyone.
God takes more interest in us than we can truly understand. Blogging, I have come to realize, I have a strong desire for my voice to be heard. Not only are we heard but our person is revealed through what we write. Our interest, our person, personality, passion, heart, and Character for the most part. Are we the same person outside of the blog as we portray ourselves in the blog? Well for me, the blog brings out the best of me and that is one of the reasons I love it here. I do love this community! I want to be able to express myself outside of this blog as well as I do inside it.

There are so many writers on wordpress. All seeking the same thing, longing for our voices to be heard. Hoping for as many likes as we can get. We all desire to be liked. If we struggle to talk to people face to face, blogging sets you free to unleash all that has been bottled up! The question remains though ” does God read my blog”? If He does, what does He think about it? Is what I am writing about, adding to others in a positive uplifting way? Am I providing a service to help others? Is what I am writing, giving something that I have spent years sacrificing, learning, growing, suffering, pouring myself into to give away?

If God is reading your blog, would you write about the same things? Would you write directly to Him? I’m guessing you never thought about it! Is what you write solely for yourself? Not as If there is anything wrong with that, I only ask merely to direct your thoughts. I know writing fills a certain need in each of us! I guess, the inspirational heart God has given me, is to inspire others to find more joy, satisfaction, blessings, purpose, and gratifying extension of yourself through your writing. I know by having a heart first toward others, fills a deep place in my heart. I believe because of my relationship with God and my deep love for Him, my writing is inspired by Him. I actually believe He reads it, before I write it. Sometimes I write so fast because the thoughts flow like a rushing stream. Sometimes I pause and wait on the Holy spirit. My desire is for when you leave my blog, that God leaves with you, holding your hand. I hope that as your reading it, He is sitting at your side reading it with you. I believe God reads my blog!

The Call of Jeremiah
4 The word of the Lord came to me, saying,

5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew[a] you,
before you were born I set you apart;
I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
6 “Alas, Sovereign Lord,” I said, “I do not know how to speak; I am too young.”

7 But the Lord said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am too young.’ You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. 8 Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the Lord.

9 Then the Lord reached out his hand and touched my mouth and said to me, “I have put my words in your mouth. 10 See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant.”

thank you for all of the likes, I desire to know your hearts as well, please leave your thoughts and comments! Thank you and have a blessed day!

MEMORIES

MEMORIES

I stopped, triggered by emotions
The child experiences as I stand now grown
Looking back to the things which molded who I am
Whispers of sorrows, mostly memories of sad
I see how this precious heart tampered with bad
How I drowned my sorrows, how I toughened up
How the bear came out and would erupt
Wounded as a child, I see how, those I wound
I see the precious God who knows my heart and where it’s been
Now sifting through my memories deep within
As to help me to identify why, who I am
The child, the man
Challenging me, to heal and to then heal
There is a peace within as he guides
My, memories

GOING THROUGH THE FIRE

GOING THROUGH THE FIRE

My heart aches, my circumstances shakes
The foundation of my flesh
The inner dwelling surrender I’m undertaking, I’m pressed
Against the wall of my unwavering heart
I glare at the orange, the blue
The red flames, the dancing art
I stare as my hearts surrenders to the burn
Knowing the beauty in Your work I turn
Into your loving flames, into the fire
The potter at work, one can only admire
From the kiln my only desire
Is to be in His arms
I know when I submit to His work
Not far His promise lurks
Holiness I acquire
Going through the fire

A NEW NATURAL

A NEW NATURAL

Living in the natural anything goes
The heart ponders decides and knows
What is right, what is wrong
Living on the edge at times, it shows
Discipline decides the character
Pressing against the tide
Un-natural living against the current
A raging fire in the furnace
An invisible power erupts
A glow burns away all that corrupts
The super-natural falls upon
The heart that’s willing to go beyond
Entering in by the spirit
Born again by the work of the cross
The old ways counted as a loss
I have found, a new natural

THE LIGHT OF TRUTH

LIGHT OF TRUTH_edited-2

How often in your life do you think you miss God present and active in your life? Do you think its possible you missed Him last night? This morning? How about last week, when you got into an argument, when you were late for work, when you were at home feeling lonely, during your worst day last week and nothing seemed to go right? How often are you looking, thinking, paying attention to the things of God and God Himself? How open are you to Him? Are you looking? Opening your thoughts, mind to Him. Do you think He is here right at this moment? Do you think He is so active and focused on you that He is constantly trying to get your attention and teach you how to see Him, hear Him, and recognize when He is really trying to show and teach you something that could change the rest of your life. Do you think that its even possible to know God like that on this earth? I believe God is active daily in each of our lives. Desiring to reach you deeply, so He can be glorified through you. Every thought God has toward you is full of joy, love, and hope of your life to be found deep in Him.

At this point in the message I want to take inventory of your heart. Did you start reading this post feeling fatigued, down, troubled, worried about something, hurt from something that recently happened? Where you already in the spirit feeling good with your focus already deep upon Jesus? If you were already focused on Him, your heart right at this moment is eager for all that God has for you in this message. God is already filling you with Joy and excitement for the way He is touching your heart, and you cant wait for the conclusion. The feeling is like you haven’t eaten and you are being satisfied by every bite! If you are the other, you started reading this post with a feeling like that of being in a dark room. Stress, confusion, hurt, worry all have that affect on us. As you started reading, Like Nathanael under the tree, he sees the light of Gods glory but doesn’t really know fully at this point what is taking place. For you it is like being in a dark room and you light a match, the same thing spiritually is happening to your heart and it is recognizable. Truth focused on God has that affect. Those dark feelings are there by the enemy to distract you from God. God using them in moments like this to open your heart and touching you by the light of His spirit, the match! See your day is already moving in the right direction! Praise God! He is focused on you and has set this day apart for you. For you to know He is active in your life, you just need the right focus! Lets look at the scripture and what takes place with Nathanael and his encounter with God.

Jesus Calls Philip and Nathanael
43 The next day Jesus decided to leave for Galilee. Finding Philip, he said to him, “Follow me.”

44 Philip, like Andrew and Peter, was from the town of Bethsaida. 45 Philip found Nathanael and told him, “We have found the one Moses wrote about in the Law, and about whom the prophets also wrote—Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.”

46 “Nazareth! Can anything good come from there?” Nathanael asked.

“Come and see,” said Philip.

47 When Jesus saw Nathanael approaching, he said of him, “Here truly is an Israelite in whom there is no deceit.”

48 “How do you know me?” Nathanael asked.

Jesus answered, “I saw you while you were still under the fig tree before Philip called you.”

49 Then Nathanael declared, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the king of Israel.”

50 Jesus said, “You believe[h] because I told you I saw you under the fig tree. You will see greater things than that.” 51 He then added, “Very truly I tell you,[i] you[j] will see ‘heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending on’[k] the Son of Man.”

Nathanael was like some of you, praying, very focused and seeking God. This message comes along like a light touching your heart and you see it. Through the light from this message, the Lord comes to you by the power of His spirit, as you sit under the tree of your computer, and your heart says ” you are the Son of the living God”! The Lord reminds you, He is with you and sees you sitting there. His presence comes and reminds you how to get out of the dark places of your heart, how to be refreshed in Him, and removed from the heaviness of your sin or attacks from the enemy, and troubles from this life. He reminds you He is always with you, all you have to do is open your heart and focus on Him. The match is His truth touching your heart, and the end result is His anointing having an affect on your heart, which is the evidence He is with you!

God bless, fullofrosesinspirationals

IDENTITY

Identity0013A

Identity, is one of the most deep complicated subjects. I recently had a conversation with someone very close to me about their purpose in life. The conversation was anxious, in desire for change! I recently did a post on desire, but this takes desire to an even deeper place. Even though we have many desires, desire does not claim our Identity. We must decide who we are before we can even sift through our desires.

Sometimes we can want things simply because it is popular and it is a direction others are taking. In helping the person I asked a question, what separates you from everyone else? Then I answered the question because I know this person well. I said the thing that separates you from your friends and others is the fact that you think through your choices and usually you make the hard decisions that require sacrifice! This quality is your best quality I said! This quality is a given blessing and is a part of your Identity. I then said but you have to ask yourself are you going to listen to your friends or are you going to continue to be what separates you from the crowd?

Everyone is searching for Identity! The only true place to find it is through Christ! The more we walk with Him, the more shall I say, we become ourselves! Honestly we start out so lost. Through a process we slowly begin to find ourselves through our Identity in Him! Praise you Lord, thank you! This transformation can’t happen without worship and His word, quiet time with Him and meditation.

We have an inner battle taking place between the flesh and the spirit and this is what causes us to want to go the same direction as the world.

Matthew 7:13-14 [Full Chapter]
[ The Narrow and Wide Gates ] “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

Moving towards Christ and struggling through the process of following His word is the only way to find your true Identity. Learning sacrifice and conforming to His will, is when you the clay, begin to take shape! Your Identity!

Isaiah 64:8 [Full Chapter]
Yet you, Lord, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.

God bless you in your search for your true Identity!!!

Blessings to the New Year! It’s your year!!!
