Tuesday’s Trench Truth
If you want to learn how to love and live more healthily, join us for our next series, Learning to Understand and Be Understood…coming to a trench near you.
Earthly love does not complete us
Even more so we find it can defeat us
Thinking it is the answer we are searching for
When all along He’s been standing there
arms open wide waiting at our heart’s door
Yet we beg for more…
More life, more money, more time
Why waste what little life we have thinking about things that shall pass
and will never fulfill our hearts, souls, & minds true asks
Give me HIS love
Because He gave me HIS life
Give me His time
That is more precious than gold
Let me sit in his presence as His story unfolds
I pray my life, love, and worth all come and flee in His time
His will be done
His Kingdom has won
No earthly love can complete us
and I pray no earthly desire come between Us
Only His love can fulfill us
and it’s up to us to
How many times do we hesitate to come to Him, sit in and soak up His presence because we haven’t been our best, or done our best? Oh you are going to love this week’s love letter from God’s heart to Debra’s to yours!
My dear one, come freely and boldly to Me, where love is enthroned, and receive mercy's kiss. Discover the grace needed to strengthen you in your time of weakness.
Come and spend time with Me that you may be strengthened each day. Come and be empowered to walk through each thing you are faced with, for it is My good pleasure to walk with you through each thing.
When you are feeling overwhelmed or tired, My love, retreat to the arms of your Abba Daddy, and let Me hold and comfort you. There are times for everything, so come for a time of refreshing as you receive My love and mercy.
Let everything that concerns you be drowned in My love this morning, for nothing but Me should dominate your mind. Beloved, be strong and courageous for I will fight for you, and you can rest in My love, in My care that is like nothing you have ever known.
Ouch! If I had a dime for every time I’ve said that in my lifetime, I’d definitely be further ahead financially! 😊
Welcome to Wednesday’s Word with Trench Classes United. Come on in for what I hope will be an encouraging message from my heart to yours.
Recently there have been a series of things that have hit my wall of faith…hard, and as hit after hit pounced on my heart, shooting attack arrows at what felt like almost everything I was doing, I wanted to duck and hide, to find a rock and just climb under it and not come out until it all stopped. I wanted to just quit!
But that’s not how life works, is it? We must face the attacks, allowing our faith to help us dodge the fiery darts that threaten to pierce through and weaken our faith, casting down everything that exalts itself against the knowledge of Christ. Not always easy to do, right?
The good news: WE ARE NOT ALONE IN THE FIGHT!
I was reminded of this well into what was feeling like an endless attack thru one of my devotionals and that day’s word was like an arrow of encouragement for my weary soul. It was armed with truth that helped to dispel the lies that were coming at me, from others as well as from my own private-party logic.
It was from John 15:1-2. These are the words spoken by Jesus Himself to His disciples that splashed that perspective just in time…right on time:
“I am the vine, and My Father, the vinedresser.” (in other words, the gardener.) “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.”
The good news is we’re not being chopped off at The Vine; only pruned to have others join us on The Vine, our resting place.
Think about this: when you walk by a tree, and you see all of its branches, do you ever see a branch white-knuckling it to hang on? No, they are just there, in The Vine.
In the pruning process, I need to remember that growth is rarely pain free!
It’s not always about who’s wrong, or who’s right
It’s the push, the pull, the dirty, ugly fight
We dream of white dresses and sweet, tender caresses
But sometimes this marriage really gets to the best of us
No two people are perfect; yet no love given from God goes unsurfaced
and if we remember the real reason He placed us here, together, forever wedded
There is a true meaning which is not about the butterflies and having the best of times
It’s not about hiding the hard truth beneath mountains of lies
But to be honest, To be real; To tell each other how you truly feel
The good the bad, the ugly and the sad
It may be tough but in the end it makes us, “us”
It’s what makes us tough
That true love; God given, undreamed of love
So open up to that partner you married
Someone you should trust who holds you accountable
And for whom you are to be reliable
It won’t always be easy, but His purpose prevails
Always, and forever, utterly and completely.
This thing called marriage was crafted and made
So two people on earth could love each other
Like Christ loves the church
Blameless, and forgiving
No scores kept ; No winning
Always there when you trip on your feet
Holding you up when the walk is rough
To be there for one another
Two bodies, one soul
Showing the world how His perfect love helps us grow
