Jerusalem






On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west, forming a great valley, with half of the mountain moving north and half moving south....(Zechariah 14:4)

When God chose Abraham.............He made a covenant with him....God WILL NEVER break His covenant with Israel!

The tide is turning......................toward Israel!
We must PRAY daily for the peace of Jerusalem. This is the only city that we are to pray for that is MANDATED in the bible!
  
Psalm 122:6;
Pray for peace in Jerusalem. May all who love this city prosper.

Romans 10:1;

1 Brothers and sisters, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for the Israelites is that they may be saved.


By God's GRACE and MERCY........we have been grafted in.





Matthew 24:9;

9 “Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me.

No matter what Israel does she is condemned.........it is a double standard.  They are constantly told:
"RESTRAIN!" While numerous bombs are being dropped daily on their schools, homes with innocent people being killed.

Genesis 12:3;
I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you."

Haggai 2:4-9;

4 But now be strong, Zerubbabel,’ declares the LORD. ‘Be strong, Joshua son of Jozadak, the high priest. Be strong, all you people of the land,’ declares the LORD, ‘and work. For I am with you,’ declares the LORD Almighty. 5This is what I covenanted with you when you came out of Egypt. And my Spirit remains among you. Do not fear.’

6 “This is what the LORD Almighty says: ‘In a little while I will once more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land. 7 I will shake all nations, and what is desired by all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory,’ says the LORD Almighty. 8 ‘The silver is mine and the gold is mine,’ declares the LORD Almighty. 9 ‘The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,’ says the LORD Almighty. ‘And in this place I will grant peace,’ declares the LORD Almighty.”


Pray to see through biblical eyes...........stop listening to the news and man look to the Word of God...........it is because of the Jews that God has blessed us with so much! Peace will come one-day to Israel and all of Israel will be saved! That is a fact!
There are some churches and pastors that preach the Church has taken the place of Israel.....THIS IS NOT TRUE......-that is called REPLACEMENT THEOLOGY!!! If you hear this in your church RUN!!!! The Church and Israel are SEPARATE...... The Church is us the Gentiles who were grafted in and we are the "Bride of Christ."  Israel is from the seed of Abraham.........Israel is the WIFE OF GOD!!!!
We the church have to be in the world but not of it.

Join me will you in daily praying for this incredible place that God himself chose!

all is well,
Robbie


Please take the time to read this article; excellent explanation of what Replacement Theology truly is:


Replacement Theology
by Anonymous, 1989




There is a lot of confusion going around these days about God's
promises, even among our own ranks here at (unnamed organization).
I'd like to take this opportunity to dispel a little of the confusion.

There is a powerful movement afoot called Replacement Theology
which states that the church is Israel and the promises given to
Israel were primarily for the church. This movement is
incurring the wrath of God, as it increasingly condemns the
nation of Israel as illegitimate, which is natural for folks who
believe the church has replaced Israel. Even among those who
still hold to Israel to one degree or another, there seems to be
a propensity for yanking Old Testament promises out of the Bible
-- and, I might add, out of context -- and indiscriminately
applying them to modern church situations. The tendency is to
select those promises which fit church theology (like healing,
prosperity, victory) and ignore those which do not (like
punishment for rebellion, keeping of feasts, sacrifices). To
set the record straight: the church did not yet exist when
those promises were given, and they were not given to Israel as
a "type" of the church until the church should inherit them.
The Old Testament promises were given to Israel, and they apply
to Israel. Many of them ALSO apply to the church in a general
way, and many of them apply to all nations in a general way, and
many of them apply only to Israel. We have got to quit assuming
that just because some teacher of the Word says the Bible says
something is ours, that it is. We must understand the situation
and context in which the promises were given -- promises of
blessing and/or cursing, of redemption, et-cetera -- before we
can understand the promises themselves.

Let's take as an example 2 Chronicles 7:14. Most people today
are familiar with that verse, but unfortunately the vast
majority of the church in America seems to have gotten the idea
somewhere -- not from God -- that the promise is to America. It
most assuredly is not. Let us read the passage in its context
(2 Chronicles 7:11-20):

Thus Solomon finished the house of the Lord and the
king's palace, and successfully completed all that
he had planned on doing in the house of the Lord and
in his palace. Then the Lord appeared to Solomon at
night and said to him, "I have heard your prayer,
and have chosen this place for Myself as a house of
sacrifice. If I shut up the heavens so that there
is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the
land, or if I send pestilence among My people, and
My people who are called by My Name [over whom My
Name is called] humble themselves and pray, and seek
My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will
hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and
will heal their land. Now My eyes shall be open and
My ears attentive the prayer of this place. For now
I have chosen and consecrated this house that My
Name may be there forever, and My eyes and My heart
will be there perpetually."

The context here is the completion and dedication of the temple
in Israel. Note God's promise concerning "this house".
Speaking to Israel, the Lord promised to forgive the nation and
heal the land if the nation would repent. The entire nation is
called "My people". Israel is called by God's Name. This
promise was NOT given to Japan, Albania, or the United States,
none of which is a nation "called by My Name". Unfortunately,
we in western society have twisted the meaning for our own
supposed benefit to allegedly say, "If My people which are
called by My Name (the Christians within the country) ..." But
it does not say that. Now the promise CAN apply to a nation
other than Israel in a general way: certainly if any nation
(America included) will repent, God will restore the nation and
forgive the sin and heal the land. The key is the distinction
between who is Israel and who is not. If the church is Israel,
then one can truly say, "If the believers will repent and pray,
I'll restore their land." But believers have already repented,
or else they wouldn't be believers! The confusion comes from
erroneously assuming the church is modern "spiritual Israel",
having replaced national Israel. It does not say "If the
Christians will pray and intercede and repent". Repent of what?
The believers are already the righteousness of God in Jesus, and
it's not for the righteousness of the believing 1% that America
will be judged, but for the sin of the wicked 99% who refuse to
repent. The promise concerns a NATION repenting, not God's
people WITHIN A NATION repenting and praying. We are the temple
of the Holy Spirit, it is true, but our repentance does not
nullify the justice and righteousness of God. He cannot leave
America unjudged and remain a righteous judge!

Elsewhere in the Bible we find the answer to how God deals with
a wicked nation where a few people are righteous. This is one
of those passages the modern Word of Faith and Kingdom Now
people like to avoid, because it pretty well debunks their
misinterpretation of 2 Chronicles 7:14. This is found in
Ezekiel 14:13-20, and it is one of those places which speaks of
all nations in general (starting with verse 21 -- not quoted
here -- the Lord starts to apply it directly to Israel):

"Son of man, if a country sins against Me by
committing unfaithfulness, and I stretch out My hand
against it, destroy its supply of bread, send famine
against it, and cut off from it both man and beast,
even though these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job
were in its midst, by their own righteousness they
could only deliver themselves," declares the Lord
God. "If I were to cause wild beasts to pass
through the land, and they bereave of children, and
it became desolate so that no one would pass through
it because of the beasts, though these three men
were in its midst, as I live," declares the Lord
God, "they could not deliver either their sons or
their daughters. They alone would be delivered, but
the country would be desolate. Or if I should bring
a sword on that country and say, 'Let the sword pass
through the country and cut off man and beast from
it,' even though these three men were in its midst,
as I live," declares the Lord God, "they could not
deliver either their sons or their daughters, but
they alone would be delivered. Or if I should send
a plague against that country and pour out My wrath
in blood on it, to cut off man and beast from it,
even though Noah, Daniel, and Job were in its midst,
as I live," declares the Lord God, "they could not
deliver either their son or their daughter. They
would deliver only themselves by their
righteousness."

Can our righteousness deliver America? What does God say about
it? The only people who will be delivered are the righteous,
and we've got to quit praying out of God's will and asking Him
to deliver the wicked, because He is a righteous and just God
and He will judge sin. The smart thing is to get your sin
judged on the cross so you're free of it and you don't get
judged yourself. We need to pray for people to get saved, and
for wisdom for our leaders, and whatever else the Word tells us
to do. But know this: God is about to judge this nation. It
is His will to do so, indeed, He MUST do so. It is NOT His will
that any perish, but that all be saved. Nevertheless, Scripture
is clear that God hates sin, and He will destroy the nation that
continues to sin. He will also leave a righteous remnant.

The next time you hear someone quoting 2 Chronicles 7:14 over
America and admonishing you to pray for restoration of America,
just remember God isn't going to restore America. God is
restoring Israel now, and human government is coming to an end,
because the Messiah is about to return as King of kings and Lord
of lords; and soon the Word will be fulfilled which says, "The
kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and
He shall reign forever and ever." Why should God put off
Messiah's return so Americans could enjoy a few more years of
materialism and debauchery? We need to get in on what God is
doing, not try to make Him conform to American Christianity and
an American Jesus.

Noise








Indeed, obedience must be given with genuine good will, because God loves a cheerful giver.
If obedience is given with a bad will and with murmuring not only in words but even in bitterness of heart, then even though the command may be externally fulfilled it will not be accepted by God, for he can see the resistance in the heart of a murmurer. One who behaves in such a way not only fails to receive the reward of grace but actually incurs the punishment deserved by murmurers. Only repentance and reparation can save such a one from this punishment."
Benedict of Nursia

It's funny that silence is what I crave.........but even on my walks I hear bees humming......... dogs barking...... birds chirping even the plants are swaying to the rhythm of this world
Is it possible to hear with our world so full of noise everywhere?
Last night as I tried to sit in silence I hear the water running from the teens starting the shower...........it's 10pm and I feel so tired. Baseball is blarring on the television. I hear a radio from another teens room. Then another teen slams the refrigerator door for the 100th time. If silence is truly a miracle itself..........why is it so hard to have?
It's true I guess that the days of noise can be deafening and cause you to lose your way


The visions of my past of being silenced now by the redeeming blood of the "great I AM!"
As I lay on my bed at night it is me who closes my eyes and wishes I could climb into the lap of the Saviour............and sleep away with the wings of grace covering my ugly.

There are the days when I feel so small............because He is God that is everywhere. And who am I the women with unclean lips..........craving Silence which is wiser than Speaking.

There are days when the tongue whips words out the harsh and you wonder how you could have really said that.
It is then I think about the WORD himself............the one who is true, and pure who bent the lowest of them all........who kept himself the silent to take it all for us. Who is this God I have to ask myself?

The world is so full of noise but it is Him so full of truth. Yet He is indescribable.........with His outstretched hands........open and willing to take the pain of being nailed to a cross.......a cross He even carried on His back.......the one with no beginning and no end. With words being taunted at Him for hours but His lips never SPOKE stop because He was consumed with, " AGAPE" love for us that is incomprehensible.............it requires no WORDS for He is the WORD Himself!

Who is this God I have asked..............The one who carried it all for sinners........even when the sin was heavy, messy, and ugly.   He never said a word..............but continued to carry the cross for us all.


God the light of the World..........who came only to save. The one who is the Word that surrendered His all for the ones whose mouths can't stop............ complaining........... gossiping................screaming  "it's all about me."

Silence can offer up our embrace.
When words are many, sin is not absent, but he who holds his tongue is wise.(Proverbs 10:19)

He who bleed............for us all................who took darkness upon himself........only to give....... us the true meaning of LOVE.
Our God is love and love is God.
Want you join me in getting to know the WORD himself this year?






all is well,
Robbie

To Follow or not to follow?






The day begins again.................I inhale and exhale hard..............wondering  which way do I go in a world that has me spinning out of control lately?


I wake early in the wee hours of the morning to feed..............on the one true food that matters....."the word."  But apparently I am continuing to miss it.................I fumble and stumble my way through ........hearing only what I want to hear.

Not wanting the fire to burn.................... through the layers of me.
Yet His grace..........circles me again and again.  I grieve.........because it's me that continues to live........thirsty!

I see the well.............it's right in front of me...........but I clinch my lips the tight............WHY? I scream..............why want I drink the water of everlasting?

Maybe to drink is to follow....................on a path of the unknown.  Maybe I am scared.........tired and weary.


17 As He was setting out on a journey, a man ran up to Him and knelt before Him, and asked Him, “Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” (Mark 10:17)



 21 Looking at him, Jesus felt a love for him and said to him, “One thing you lack: go and sell all you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.” 22 But at these words [a]he was saddened, and he went away grieving, for he was one who owned much property. (Mark 10:21-22)



What does it truly mean to follow Him? 
Surrender I  hear him whisper..................a life of surrender!
The surrender of our wants...............the surrender of the temporary things of this world. A heart transformation is needed.............before we can surrender our will for His will. Where the eternal things become our number one priority!

Sometimes life can be messy......and........dirty........... and God says it's OK because I came for the messy!
We need to feel the weight of the cross on our backs. Sometimes in this life we will have to taste suffering.............. rejection...........and things that are unpleasant.
Real followers taste it! Or should I say drink it and..............they are never thirsty again.

A true FOLLOWER surrenders his all...............and says not my will but yours Father.

Want you join me in this 21st century................letting it be all about FOLLOWING THE KING?
This world is not our home...............We are only passing through............we are merely sojourners.  Abraham continued to live in temporary housing as He picked up his cross to FOLLOW Jesus..............He lived in a tent because he knew that the world he was living in was only temporary he was only passing through.
To FOLLOW Jesus is going to require us to look at this world as temporary............it's a daily  sacrifice of dying to ourselves!


Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. (Matthew 16:24)

We live in an upside down world................where up is really down...........and the lower we bend the closer we are to seeing His face! Make that cross heavy Father, we want to see your face!

A pledge by a late bible teacher..........RUSSELL KELLER:

He suggested that it would be a good idea to write out a brief document on a piece of paper, sign your name at the bottom, and make it a habit of recommitting yourself to it on a regular basis.


Having been born into the kingdom of God. I do hereby acknowledge that God's purchase of my life included all the rights and control of that life for all eternity.

I do further acknowledge that He has NOT guarunteed me to be free from pain or to have success or prosperity. He has not guaranteed me perfect health. He has not guaranteed me perfect parents. He has not guaranteed me perfect children. He has not guaranteed me the absence of pressures, trails, misunderstandings, or persecution.

What He has promised me is ETERNAL LIFE!  What He has promised me is ABUNDANT LIFE. What He has promised me is LOVE, JOY, PEACE, PATIENCE, GENTLENESS, MEEKNESS, and SELF-CONTROL. He has given me all of Himself in exchange for the rights to my life.

Therefore I acknowledge this day the relinquishment of all my rights and expectations, and humbly ask Him by HIS GRACE to replace these with a GREATUL SPIRIT.......for whatever in His WISDOM He DEEMS to allow for my life.


What a difference our lives would be if we started from the very beginning of each day SURRENDERING full rights to our lives to Him!

We must pour out first to be filled!



But I will rejoice even if I lose my life, pouring it out like a liquid offering to God, just like your faithful service is an offering to God. And I want all of you to share that joy.
Philippians 2:17; NIV

Eye Protection




Be careful little eyes what you see,
be careful little eyes what you see,
for the father up above is looking down in love,
 oh be careful little eyes what you see.
Singing this song when I was young, taught me that I was responsible for what I did with my body.
Not only are we to guard our hearts, but our minds, our eyes, our ears. I feel like I would be better off living in a bubble.

Proverbs 4:23-27
" Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Keep your mouth free of perversity, keep corrupt talk far from your lips. Let your eyes look straight ahead, fix your gaze directly before you. Give careful thought to the paths for your feet and be steadfast in all your ways. Do not turn to the right or the left, keep your foot from evil.


I rarely eat lunch in the break room at work. It is usually too busy to actually sit down and enjoy your lunch, watch a little TV, etc. But today was different, It was actually a pretty good day, one that included lunch in the break room.
I went to the cafeteria with a couple other nurses. We grabbed our lunch, and rushed back upstairs. Especially cause we could be called back into the unit at any time.
The TV was already on, half the time you cant find the remote and you just watch whatever is on.
Well of course it was a talk show- with every thing a Christian women should stay away from. I sat there- actually kinda entertained from the mess of their lives. There were prostitutes, pimps, their families, their friends. etc.
I have to admit that I did feel a little conviction, but who knew where the remote was and I wasn't the only one in the room.
So I sat there and laughed at these people air their dirty laundry all over day time TV.
I should be ashamed!!!
Some of the comments my coworkers expressed- should have made me blush, but it didn't. I sat right there and ate my lunch and participated in sin.
Then a 22 year old, Christian man- coworker- walked in. saw what was on the TV- actually heard the evil- heated up his lunch and walked out. He must have taken his lunch into the unit to eat.
Probably to get away from the sin.
I felt terrible- convicted. How can I be so weak. We are suppose to be an example to others, but why is it so hard.
I didn't say anything to him at first, I waited a week- then I apologised for staying and participating in that mess.
He actually thanked me- full understanding- and stated that he felt guilty for even staying to heat up his food. He was glad that I expressed by conviction. How lonely it is to walk with Jesus. We need to stick together and be the light to this dark and miserable world.
How could God use a 22 year old to witness to me- It should be the other way around. I am usually so quick to point out another who sins, when I should be on my knees worrying about myself
I know that we are human and are suppose to learn from our mistakes, but why is it so hard.
I did ask our father, Yahweh, for forgiveness. That I was sorry for being so weak. And prayed for strength.
I pray to be a witness - to show a Godly example- to show the love of Christ. I pray for another chance to be strong and be a witness to others.
In his service.

Teshuqah- hebrew for DESIRE

(asking for grace for last weeks quietness............lots of head colds and teens with final exams that also consisted of shorter school days . Life has had me spinning a bit disoriented lately.)


In the winter, seeing a tree striped of its leaves, and considering that within a little time the leaves would be RENEWED, and after that the flowers and fruit appear, I received a high view of the PROVIDENCE and POWER of God.....................(The Practice of the Presence of God).....Brother Lawrence.

     I thought my story.........was already written.......but it turns out there is always second chances!
Hiking 5 or 6 miles straight up a mountain wasn't my idea of fun!
Winter can be uncomfortable for some due to the ground being cursed.....bringing forth thorns and thistles.

     When I hiked up that mountain in October at the Cove..............pouring my heart out like dirty water............wanting so badly to shed my dirty little secrets............I Him whisper to my heart......."rock!"

But I doubted...... did I really just hear that?  "ROCK."
Me of so little faith!

     Separation I scream.................from the old rock where I have been embedded so long!

Hosea 10:12


12 Sow for yourselves righteousness;
reap steadfast love;
break up your fallow ground,
for it is the time to seek the LORD,
that he may come and rain righteousness upon you.

God is Love...............Love is God!
( Agape)
 means "love" (unconditional love)

John 13:34-35
 
34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
My view laying on my back in front of the barren forest looking up!

 I live the bare and barren................as a winter tree with wounds.............unprofitable........fit to be torn down and burnt!

I have no green shoots in me.......no fruit here I scream...............just old thorns and thistles!

It goes back to the days of Adam and Eve...................where they abandon their God-given role.
Where the Lord says to Cain before the first murder committed............"SINS DESIRE IS FOR YOU!"  "You must RULE over it!"
He fails and so do we. Has our discontent with our lives permitted our own DESIRES to eat of the forbidden fruit?

(Yes we have all eaten the fruit of lies...................because of our trust in SELF.)
The trees start to sway to their own rhythm............of this world. Maybe they are exposing me for who I really am?  What is buried deep I cry? It's me who is scared of my old wounds starting to bleed.
I lay for a while and listen..................to the wood-pecker that is knocking hard on a tree.
Is God knocking?............Knocking on the door of my heart and yours asking.........."Will you welcome me with Joy and Thanksgiving?"

Recreate in me a new heart...............harbouring nothing that would keep thy presence from me!

What's buried the deep can corrupt the heart and keep us from producing fruit!
Occupying our time with trivial things that change daily.

"Give ourselves up to God, with regard both to the things temporal and eternal, and seek SATISFACTION ONLY in the fulfilling of His will, whether He lead us by suffering or by consolation,  for all would be equal to a soul truly resigned.......(SURRENDERED).-Brother Lawrence.

If I truly DESIRE to know God.........................then I have to be willing to surrender to God so He can break up the hard, barren ground in my spiritual life!
In Hosea......God caused them to DESIRE................ that LOVE (AGAPE); relationship with HIM.
He enabled them to see. Do we truly want to see? 

His desire for all of us is to get back to our 1st love.........................."CHRIST."

Through grace my dear friends................we can surrender all.........and drink from the very water where we will never thirst again................drinking of the joy's........found only in HIS presence.

Join me will you?



all is well,
Robbie




so thankful;
for the fog on a cold Jan. morning
rain drops that keep on falling
giggling teens up-stairs
warmth by a fire place
candles burning bright
a new year that is bringing changes
a God who draws you near
the sound of water rushing strong in a creek bed
rocking chairs
clean bathrooms
a break from work
cleaning out closets
quiet mornings with the King
darkness
mirrors of reflections
desires that can change
simplicity

Opportunities






Before Jesus departed to his heavenly throne to  take his position at the right hand of our Father, he spent time with his final eleven disciples- commanding them to " go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit." Matthew 28:19-20
If these were the last words spoken to his disciples, you know they were very important.
Acts 1:8
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."
Christ commanded us to tell others about him and promised us that he would give us the power to do so.
Also, No one can tell your story- telling others what Jesus has done for you is what he commanded us to do.


As an ICU nurse I have opportunities every day to tell others about Jesus- NO.... it is my obligation as a christain to tell others about Jesus. Do I want to save his Mercy and Grace and Love just for myself and my family?

I could tell you numerous stories about how christain nurses and doctors pray for and with their patients. It would take all day to tell every story.
I am reading a book now- Gray Matter. A book about a neuro-surgeon who prays with every patient before and after surgery. Regardless of how the surgery goes- he gives God the glory.


I held her hand as she held onto life. " Im so weak- I almost left this earth". After hearing that- I usually know that their time on this earth is short. There were a lot of people in her room, she was 90 years old, but still wanted everything done for her at this time. As I held her hand and looked up and down her arm for a vein- to start an IV in. I asked her- " Do you know Jesus". I pray for boldness at work, I wanted to scream it, but instead I whispered it. " Oh yes" she said. After that brief moment, the only thing she could say- was Jesus, Jesus. That is the sweetest name I know.
What a precious time. I want to yell out his name.

Use what time we have on earth- use the opportunities to tell others about Jesus. Talk about his goodness to others- to your friends. Tell them what he has done for you. And in everything give him the praise and glory, that he deserves.
In his service.

Weekends are for reaching and quietness






All is quiet here this week...........except for the rain! The trees blowing with the rhythm of this world.
I am resolving to sit a spell in quietness.............reaching for God............remembering that to reach for God is to reach God!

May your weekend be one of reaching for Him even if it requires sitting in the uncomfortable stillness, committing to attempt placing yourself in the quietness of Him!

May all your weekend warm friends be one of reaching!

all is well,

Desire





As the sun rises to meet the day I rummage through photo's from my trip to Israel!


As I look out the window this morning............the sun glistens through the trees and I watch the tree tops sway to their own rhythm. But it is me who feels a void.............my heart I left in Israel!

     But I know these feelings I have for that Country is not of my own will........there is very little that I have chosen for myself. Because their is a God in heaven who is moving...........speaking and who still performs miracles today! He is the one who appoints my lot and determines my path. He himself has placed HIS desires in my heart;   for the apple of his eye........."Israel."

Today was a; "Revelation," for me in my quiet time this morning.............God has been circling me with the same question for months"Robbie, what do you truly desire?"  For months I have been coming up with numerous answers:  " to know Him more,.........to be more Christ-like,........to be His friend,...........to be a better Christian!!!

rev·e·la·tion
[rev-uh-ley-shuh n)
noun
1.
the act of revealing or disclosing; disclosure.
2.
something revealed or disclosed, especially a striking disclosure, as of something not before realized.
3.
Theology .
a.
God's disclosure of Himself and His will to His creatures.
b.
an instance of such communication or disclosure.
c.
something thus communicated or disclosed.
What I DESIRE................for myself I CANNOT attain, BUT.....what HE DESIRES in me HE can attain for me!
Maybe what we all need in 2012 is a REVELATION...........of the truth.........that because of our own flesh.........we DO NOT have the ABILITY to place God at the center of our life! God himself has to place himself there!

Maybe this day we could ask together.............with our hands held out OPEN.......for the gifts that He has for us. For Him to take our eyes and fix them upon HIM!

As the rain moves in and the sky turns grey............... it's me who whispers; "make this day a day of of obedience, a day of spiritual joy and peace.

And through each small death of our flesh........God perplexes His Kingdom forward.
Let us not be afraid when life seems the heavy because He is my father and yours.............we shall not be afraid!

all is well my sweet friends,
robbie
