The God of all things is Holy, He is love

God is love. This earth constantly gives us a fake love, they feed us a lie and say to us, "doesn't this taste like love?"
NO! For we have tasted and seen that the LORD is good. He is true love, the true love only comes from and through our father. He is the definition of love! Do you know him? Compare him to the world. The world does not measure up.
So I was listening to some worship and the lines said --> He always knew me, the earth could never hold this love that burns my soul
God knows you! All of you, he knows the words that you are about to speak before you say them, the thoughts you have before you think them psalm 139

waves can't quench the Love that God has for his children, it won't be washed away. This is not a petty love of roses and chocolate. This is HARD CORE love. Described in Song of Songs as as STRONG AS DEATH, JEALOUS LIKE A GRAVE, BURNING LIKE A BLAZING FIRE this is not just love like the world tells you love is. this is a love from a HOLY God!

you and me created to know the Lord, the pure love of the father, made by him, made for him, not a mistake, but for the purpose and GLORY of a worthy God!

p.s. I am blessed so blessed to be living in answered prayer, i am off to Belize March 14-22 and get to continue to work with Praying Pelican Missions this summer! Thank you Jesus <3

Writing on your hand does help you remember

hello lovely people :)
Ok so I have some very exciting things to share with you tonight. The Lord is faithful!
We will be looking in Isaiah tonight.

Isaiah 49, the whole thing, but zooming in on vs. 15-16.
    HERE IT IS: "Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you! See I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me.

The Lord remembers you, everything about you, he sees your walls, you are engraved on his hand!

Isaiah 44, zooming in on vs. 1-5
     HERE IT IS: "But now listen, O Jacob, my servent, Israel, whom I have chosen. This is what the Lord says- he who made you, who formed you in the womb and who will help you: Do not be afraid, O Jacob, my servent, Jeshurun, whom I have chosen. For I will pour out water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground; I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring, and my blessing on your decendants. They will spring up like grass in a meadow, like poplar trees by flowing streams. One will say, 'I belong to the Lord', another will call himself by the name of Jacob; still another will write on his hand, 'The Lord's', and will take the name Israel."

We are to remember that we are the LORDS! it is not good to forget this. How powerful is it that we belong to the Lord!

I pray that these verses and there connection hit you deep on the inside. That you can grasp it better then I think I get it at this moment.

Be encouraged for the Lord has not forgotton you, you are ever before him!

God is good! His way is perfect!

Ok dear friends, so BIG things are happening, and I will get around to sharing them when I have a clearer picture and possibly a plane ticket! My friend just told me to read psalm 19 and wow is it powerful.

take time and look it up :)
I read it and then was looking at the other things on this page, for me it is page 302 and 303
and wow found many great things! Take a look at things around 19. For me psalm 18:30-36 just jumped out.

Lets take a look here: "As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the Lord is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in him. For who is God besides the Lord? And who is the Rock except our God? It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect. He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he enables me to stand on the heights. He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze. you give me you shield of victory, and your right hand sustains me; you stoop down to make me great. You broaden the path beneath me, so that my ankles do not turn."

How great is the picture of him stooping down and making us great. I don't think I even can understand this at the moment.
Only God can make our ways perfect, and make us be able to stand on heights! He calls us on to those hills. Like in Song of Songs 2:8-14 he calls us out of a rest time onto moutains and hills. THE SEASON OF SINGING HAS COME :)
Have a blessed day, be encouraged in heart and united in Love, the Love of the LORD!

A quick night of typing about wonderful things

I'm starting a blog, I have read many cute ones. I really like cute things and I like writing. Writing seems to be a way, for me at least, of learning deep on the inside what I seem to be learning. Do you get what I mean? Some times things hit us and don't really sink in. I pray for things of the Lord to sink in, and things of the world to bounce right off! True that!

So my blog name comes from Colossians 1:15-16 how amazing is it to see that we are made by Christ and for Christ! I can get lost in this thought because it shows the love God has. I didn't just make myself and now he has to "deal" with me. He made me! and I was not made for myself or for this world, but Praise be to God, I was made for HIM, a holy, just, perfect in love, God! and the same goes for everything in heaven and on earth, which means you too, by him and for him.

SO Colossians is a letter writen by Paul. I was just taking a look and read the start of Colossians 2:1-3 and LOVE it.

Lets read shall we:  "I want you to know how much I am struggling for you and for those in Laodicea, and for all who have not met me personally. My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge."

How lovely is his purpose? For me it is lovely, and I am defining lovely as powerful and beautiful. I know that there are many times I find myself needing to be encouraged in heart, and united in love.  And why is that? SO I can know Christ, even all the hidden things.

Ok, I think I could type all night. So this will be all for now. Be encouraged in heart and united in love, by Christ and his living and active word!

<--- here is a picture of some fun peeps, I needed to see if I could figure out how to add pictures :) haha
