How can one heart feel so much…yet, feel so little throughout different seasons of life? The heart and mind, the spirit and soul – they are each, in their own right, quite the intriguing and unpredictable thing! Music echoes that sentiment back to me. Its depth is felt resounding through every ounce of my being. Its vibrations of intrigue, its rhythm of unpredictability in the creation process, are perceived as well.
No matter its beauty…or even music’s intricacies and wonderment…It cannot compare. Nor does it even begin to allow me the necessary understanding to grasp the complexity of the mystery of God’s Great Love for me! The Depth, The Width, The Height, The Length – It reaches to the heavens and stretches across the sky, shaking the very earth with its Might! It breaks the sound and light barriers with the speed in which He sends it directly to the heart that calls upon Him!
His Love has changed my life. He has taken my old heart and given me a new one, just as He promised.
There is no greater gift than our Father’s Love for us.
1 John 3 says this: “See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God; and such we are! For this reason, the world does not know us because it did not know Him.”
Writing for Him as I seek Him – that’s the journey that this new heart of mine started me off on so many years ago. Those new desires He placed in my heart to do as I have been called to do – came with an Overflowing cup of His Great Love!
Thank God for His Provision – always – yes, I do.
Thank God for His Love – always – this, I do, as well.
Thank God for Him…for simply being Him. For all He does and all He is to this heart of mine – always. I will continue in this.
Writing songs for Him and breathing life through the music He gives me – well, I can pray for no better way to exist, to move, to have my being than to continue in the work He has set before me, as His Child. Singing Praises to Him every day through Word and Song. I am all in for Him.
I will not be shaken.
I will not be moved.
I will not be afraid.
No weapon formed against me shall prosper – BECAUSE My Father is the maker of the enemy who attempts to fashion the weapon.
He is Omniscient and Omnipotent – Almighty, My Lord, That He is! His Protection is ever-present, His Love Unfailing!
I will continue in this ministry of reconciliation we are called to! I will continue to be set apart!
Glory to Him!
Praise be to the Father!
I encourage you in this day. Look to the Father.
His Good Promises await!
His Love for you endures forever!
Jesus-the Vine, My Father-the Vinedresser
John 15:1-11 (NASB)
I am the true vine,
and My Father is the vinedresser.
Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit,
He takes away;
and every branch that bears fruit,
He prunes it so that it may bear more fruit.
You are already clean because of the word
which I have spoken to you.
Abide in Me, and I in you.
As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless
it abides in the vine,
so neither can you unless you abide in Me.
I am the vine, you are the branches;
he who abides in Me and I in him,
he bears much fruit,
for apart from Me you can do nothing.
If anyone does not abide in Me,
he is thrown away as a branch and dries up;
and they gather them,
and cast them into the fire and they are burned.
If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you,
ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.
My Father is glorified by this,
that you bear much fruit,
and so prove to be My disciples.
Just as the Father has loved Me,
I have also loved you; abide in My love.
If you keep My commandments,
you will abide in My love;
just as I have kept My Father’s commandments
and abide in His love.
These things I have spoken to you
so that My joy may be in you,
and that your joy may be made full.
