But, despite how WE “feel” His LOVE must flow. So, through HIS LOVE, it is possible. As always, I ask JESUS to do it through me. I ask the Holy Spirit to bring the desires of Heaven to this page. I ask the FATHER in Heaven to grant wisdom, protection and PEACE as others partake of this food. May you ALL receive what HE desires you to, as you read, reflect and receive.

I was listening to the spirit today. I kept hearing THAT storm is over. Just breathe. Now, there is NOT a day that goes by, that I don’t get encouraged by GOD. He uses SO many things to speak. The most powerful TOOL is the word. I spoke to a brother recently, and He reminded me that JESUS is the word. THAT is a VERY important reminder. Though, a VERY difficult storm has passed. There will be others to come. But, I also was reminded that JESUS is the keeper of the storms.

I usually like to write when I am focused, calm and connected in a peaceful way. Because, I hope that God uses me to bring that to others. But, today, and in the time I have been writing this entry, it has been different. I have been listening to God’s word since I woke up. I have just been weeping. So many reasons why. But, I believe the BIGGEST reason is because of the LOVE hidden in the midst of it all.

Love has been a funny things for me. It has been the hardest WAVE for me to experience. I have navigated HATE, REJECTION, ANGER, GRIEF, LOSS, and so many MORE. But, I asked God why LOVE is the hardest one. His reply was this: “MY LOVE REALLY DOES CONQUER ALL.” I remember as a child I would look around me. I was a talkative child, and I spent a lot of time with GOD until about age 7. I would talk to HIM. He would show me things. But, I would continue to seek what I SAW. I yearned for something tangible. TEARS were tangible. I cried a lot as a kid. People always assumed I was unhappy, depressed, or something bad. But, what I was then, is what I am now. HOMESICK. Let me explain a bit. I always knew who I was. I was then and am NOW, a child of GOD. My home is in HEAVEN. Though, I have had many earthly homes, and will have more, I know where I belong. That is HIS Grace is sufficient. His MERCY is new each day. HIS LOVE is why WE exist.

In some ways, I was like a “typical child.” But, in other ways, I was VERY different. I remember vividly the things I did wrong. Not because I feel guilty, or bad. But, because everything I did wrong was ALWAYS pointed out. Very rarely was the good stuff acknowledged. I want to be clear, that I am not angry about this anymore. It is just a fact. Seeing the good was like trying to find a needle in a haystack back then. I was always striving to be something better than people thought I was. But, I wasn’t asking GOD who He wanted me to be. I have spoken before about being disconnected from Jesus at age 7 1/2. That disconnect really lasted for about 22 years. In that time, I sank further into darkness. Miraculously because I did know who I was, and through Jesus you are guided to the Heavenly Father; I stayed connected with HIM.

I yearned for LOVE. It was my greatest desire. I looked everywhere. I recall that it was like a hunt. But, eventhough I sough and sought it, I ONLY found disappointment, pain, agony, hurt, depression, despair, abandonment, insecurity, and darkness. It seemed like no matter what I tried, I could not become anything good. Even now, when I think about it, I wonder. Why did I not KNOW that the LOVE was inside? That what I was looking for was not without but within?

The answer is because I had to go THROUGH to learn what was TRUE. These entries are getting more personal, and honestly I am NOT a fan of that. But, I have been called to share these things. My prayer is that what I tried to share as a child, will help someone. As a kid, my mother said something to me once. She said, “Katy you need a lot of love.” Here is what I heard, “You are exhausting, I will never be able to give you what you need. I wish I never had you. You are such a problem in my life.” I got ALL of THAT from her saying, “You need a lot of love.” But, now I know that her saying that I need a lot of LOVE was prophetic. IT was something that I would look back on as Jesus and me together navigated these waves. A disconnect does not mean something is gone. It simply means the access granted to it, is different than before.

IT fascinates me that for 22 years, Jesus watched me, prayed for me, LOVED me from afar, until the day that I would come back again. Now, THAT my dear ones is LOVE. For JESUS to TRUST that I would not fall so far into darkness, that I could NOT be rescued. I learned a lot about God, in the time of my child hood. Sadly, MUCH of it taught from others was misinformation. Even now, when people misunderstand me, it is not easy for me. Because GOD is healing that VERY deep wound. I learned a lot about evil. There were MANY people sent in and used to take advantage, stab, gossip, and so much more in relation to me. BUT, through it ALL the LOVE of GOD only, kept me a float.

I had a vision today. I was drifting on a small boat in the ocean. There was no FEAR of sharks, or anything bad. The boat was yellow, representing the GLORY of GOD. I had everything I needed. I had the word of God. THAT was ALL I needed. It was just me and HIM drifting along. The raft had red around the rim, representing the blood of JESUS. The book was GOLDEN, as the treasure it is. Here is what I know. It is okay to be drifting with GOD. I have to say that because in my life, I never really voiced that, and if I did, I was still doubting it. But, there is a point where in the drifting you REACH the destination.

The destination is where the promises unfold for you. WHY? Because you are LOVED. I mean, LOVED in a way THAT does NOT even have words. SO LOVED. I remember people would say that, and my first response was bad. I would say, “yeah right. ” I still have to fight that. Because it is HARD to fathom, embrace, and FULLY RECEIVE the LOVE of GOD. It is the greatest WAVE of HEAVEN. It conquers everything. GOD cannot be limited. He HAS NO LIMITATIONS.

Certain storms are over, and it is hard to wave good bye to them. Because, it feels like saying goodbye means, it is forever. But, the TRUTH is, if we will say goodbye to one part, the GOD can bring another and another and another. I know THIS. I have lived this. But, sometimes it is so hard to BELIEVE this. Thank GOD that when we struggle with that, HIS LOVE arises. Thank GOD there is nothing that can conquer HIS LOVE.

I had a song in my spirit today. It was NOT and really is not designed to be a worship song. I have memories as a teen of listening to this song after breakups. But, one day I listened and I heard God speak through the words. I remember crying hard as a kid. I look back now and I understand better why I cried. I yearned for HOME. I was so disconnected from everyone. No one cared, very often what I had to say. Because, it was NOT what they wanted to hear. I just wanted LOVE. I still just want LOVE, kindness and family.

In HIS word, He says the greatest of these is LOVE. Faith, hope and Love.

Hold on my heart
Just hold on to that feeling
We both know we’ve been here before
We both know what can happen

Hold on my heart
’cause I’m looking over you shoulder
Please don’t rush in this time
Don’t show her how you feel

Hold on my heart
Throw me a lifeline
I’ll keep a place for you
Somewhere deep inside

Hold on my heart
Please tell her to be patient
’cause there has never been a time
That I wanted something more

If I can recall this feeling
And I know there’s a chance
Oh I will be there
Yes I will be there
Be there for you
Whenever you want me to
Whenever you call I will be there
Yes I will be there

Hold on my heart
Don’t let her see you crying
No matter where I go
She’ll always be with me

Hold on my heart
Just hold on to that feeling
We both know we’ve been here before
We both know what can happen
So hold on my heart

The song was written by Genesis.

Here is what it means NOW to me….GOD wants me to hold onto HIS heart. The hem of HIS garment. To let mine be united with HIS. To remember the honor of suffering. To not allow the emotion to control, but to REMEMBER His LOVE will conquer, as it ALWAYS has. I pray this has been a blessing for you that have read it. I know that my HEART is not always easy to understand. I believe Jesus struggled with that too. I am grateful, that because of what HE has conquered and finished, WE will never be alone in the OCEAN of Heaven, or in this LIFE on earth. Humbled by HIS LOVE, embracing HIS spirit, I wait with HIM.

In His Grace and GLORY,

E and FAM
