PEACE by piece

This morning HE woke me early. I thought at first, I thought I was going to sleep in. But, GOD is so gracious. He knew it was not meant as a complaint. Rather an observation, that I was called to get up earlier than expected. I LOVE God. He gives us exactly what we need. Gently, I could feel that tug. I could sense the “I have need of thee.” What an honor.

This topic was given to me yesterday. While driving yesterday the most beautiful thing happened. God had given me a word. It was “Daughter I want you to drive until it gets dark.” I said, Okay Father. Now, normally it gets dark between 8 and 9. But, He kept the light in the sky until 9:30 or later. He had us stop within about 30 minutes or so afterwards. here is what is most significant. 30, is Biblically the blood of Christ and dedication. Also, when looking in the rear view mirror, it was pitch DaRK behind us.

It was really amazing. I mean I was just in AWE. I heard the LORD say, “My PEACE is the missing piece.” I saw a vision while driving, of a puzzle. I mean THIS puzzle was HUGE. It was the Last piece of the puzzle. I asked, ” What does this mean?” I heard quite simply,  The number one thing that the adversary does, it to try and even temporarily take the peace of my children. It is a mighty weapon. Be still and KNOW that I am GOD. Let me teach, guide and direct and YOU will not fail because I will succeed.”

Now, many know what we are enduring. We are approaching the 7 month mark of our precious butterfly taking flight. Yet, GOD is being so incredible. I mean truly in many ways, by HIs Grace and through HIS power, we are receiving Heaven. I struggled with this trip we are on. I mean that in so many senses. It has been and still is, a constant surrender. A constant, “Okay LORD, your ways not mine, or David’s or anyone else’s.”

But, having said THAT, I have never been so touched by GOD. I have NEVER in my almost 38 years had the level of intimacy that I now have. I believe it is because WE are partaking in HIS suffering in a whole new way. Is it because I am special? Well, in a sense YES. But, not like you may think. It is because GOD sees US ALL as special. To HIM WE are HIS babies, rare Jewels to a world that is mostly lost.

I am going to post a few scriptures on PEACE. For those who read this blog you know how much I love the opentopics site. 🙂 The main point of this entry is that the PEaCE of the LORD is what overcomes. It is FAITH in HIS promises. Like humpty dumpty, we FALL but He picks us up and He puts us back together again. IT is done BY His peace, as HE pours out HIS GLORY. We are renewed peace by piece.

Be still my soul, Be still. Wait patiently until. My heart unites within the walls of HIS LOVE. Be still my soul be still. God is commanding us from the deepest place of LOVE that WE can fathom. He is commanding us to receive HIS peace. But, WE cannot do so without repentance before HIM.

That is the number one lie the enemy tells. I mean he is somewhat “famous” for false peace. No Glory is ever given to the adversary. Though, it may appear it is. It took years to stop focusing on circumstances. Even still, it is a daily submission to GOD. I mean, I am far from perfect. But HE can and does perfect my ways by HIs LOVE. He can do the same for you.

So, as a mom, and I still am; reminding myself 😉 I must remember to stay focused. This is true as a daughter, a COG, a wife and any other hat HE gives me to wear. The focus must remain so that HE can maintain. It remains on HIM. It does not mean that WE will never lose focus. sometimes things seem blury. But, at the cross He has hidden secrets. They abide within us, but within GoD who dwells within HIS children.

We are temples of the LORD. Even a person who naturally has not chosen GOD is still loved by HIM. However, HE may know them, but they don’t really know HIM. At least not in a way that is tangible and conscious. When Sarah Beth was little, I would think and pray. One thing that would pass my mind is; “I hope she knows God.” She came in knowing GOD.

Everything is NOT necessarily mind blowing. God is most often found within the simple places, and faces. But, everything, every PIECE and every PEACE is important to God. I cannot tell you how many times He reminds us to stay wrapped in HIS LOVE. In psalm 91 it is clear. It talks about the power that comes when abiding in HIM. Is it our power? No, it is not. It is the power of God gifted and spread of over us, because oh how HE LOVES us.

I want to say to those who have LOST children something. “They are not LOST to GOD.” In fact, if these children passed and were under the age of 12, they are with HIM. There is no doubt, question or agonizing needed. He FOUND them. You know that phrase, “One mans junk is another mans treasure?” Well, GOD does not make JUNK. We are ALL treasures to HIM.

We fall down, we LAY our crown at the FEET of JESUS. ~

He will pick it back up, after cleaning it up, and making it all shiny and NEW. He will pick us up. When Peter walked on the water, and began to fall, Jesus extended HIS hand to HIM. He does so now unto you precious ones. Will you receive it? Will you lay down every burden and care? Will you LET Him lift you up? Because He is waiting, and the time is running. The clock of this world is ticking by. One day, this world will run out. I ask you, to please consider a change. Consider giving the brokenness to GOD. It is a gift to HIM. The best one we can ever give to the one who LOVES us most. Thanks be to GOD.

What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.

Lord, WE come before you fully armored, because we know THAT is a gift from you. We know that when we begin to surrender more, the attacks will at first appear to be stronger. Each new level will seem tougher than the one before. But, your GRACE is sufficient. YOUR power is perfected in our weakness. Thank you for your LOVE. Thank you for taking our brokenness and making us whole. Thank you for giving us the honor of being alive. Thank you for bringing healing straight from Heaven. We praise you GOD. We repent for places we may falter, and even on behalf of others who don’t know these Heavenly secrets yet. You are a faithful GOD. Nonetheless, you arE GLORY.

In Jesus Name and BLOOD,

Amen

This song keeps coming to me…

“Coming Out Of The Dark”

Why be afraid if I’m not alone
Though life is never easy the rest is unknown
Up to now for me it’s been hands against stone
Spent each and every moment
Searching for what to believeComing out of the dark, i finally see the light now
It’s shining on me
Coming out of the dark I know the love that saved me
You’re sharing with me

Starting again is part of the plan
And I’ll be so much stronger holding your hand
Step by step I’ll make it through I know I can
It may not make it easier but I have felt you
Near all the way

Coming out of the dark, i finally see the light now
It’s shining on me
Coming out of the dark I know the love that saved me
You’re sharing with me

Forever, forever I stand on the rock of your love
Forever I’ll stand on the rock
Forever, forever I stand on the rock of your love
Love is all it takes, no matter what we face

Coming out of the dark, i finally see the light now
It’s shining on me
Coming out of the dark I know the love that saved me
You’re sharing with me

I know it was written by Gloria Estefan.

I was thinking about the lyrics. I would say bar none….that THIS is where I am. Finally in the LIGHT with HIM. I have always been there, but never like this. It is like I visited it before, and now I live there. Thank you GOD that your light NEVER goes out. Hallelujah!!!!!!!

 

In His Grace and Glory,

E and Fam
