Faith Filled Friday
My dear one, drink deeply of the pleasures of Me, your God. Experience for yourself the joyous mercies I give to all who turn to hide themselves in Me. For I am your God and there is none like Me! Come and learn of Me, come and rest in My Presence, receive of My strength today. Come and walk in the garden of My peace today. Come and let My love fill your heart as you meditate on My goodness.
See yourself walking along side Me as I show you things you did not know. What is the cry of your heart? What is it you would like Me to be for you today? Will you let go and let Me be that for you, without trying to control all the circumstances? For My ways are far above your ways and My thoughts higher than your thoughts. Even your imagination, as good as it is, cannot even come close to My splendor.
Beloved, let Me be the One to WOW you with My creativity that is matchless in all the world.
Life happens too slow – or that used to be so. Looking back now, those were the days of easiness, the days of sweet freedom. Yet I always found myself seeking the next season, never able to “just go with the flow” and having to constantly be in the know.
What comes next? When will my life go as planned? It never did and I knew I had to leave it in His hands. Stop with the incessant planning and perfecting – and start living. Instead I kept dreaming. Dreaming about life as if it were a movie; playing out perfect scenarios in my head. Knowing in the end it was never His plan, and for me, I would have to move on. Onward, ahead.
And as soon as I stopped wishing, I began living, and the pictures, they stopped playing but for me the real movie was just beginning… so fast, with no preview. No time for planning or knowing. The scenes, they just kept rolling. The funny thing is, now life won’t stop spinning – the once “too slow” is now so fast, and when I look back I can’t believe how He shaped my past. So perfectly. So intricately.
Every moment, every worry, all those times I just wanted it to ‘hurry’ – He was moving me to be exactly where I am supposed to be. Am I where I wanted to be? That no longer matters because I am becoming the woman He created me to be. At times feeling unready – but knowing that now I have four hands and two hearts to keep me steady. A Father above, who has gifted me with so much earthly love.
And I stop in awe as I remind myself all over again that my life is in His hands. There is no reason to worry. Nothing is in a hurry. His timing is perfect. His movie forever playing.
Standing on the rooftop; Staring into the sunset
Ready to fly; Ready to scream
Feeling the chill air, the nightly breeze
Darling, hold on to those beautiful wings
Embrace the uncertainty
Knowing that you are becoming exactly who God has called you to be
Now float, float into His embrace
Into the breeze, feeling the mercy
Knowing that this world that tends to bring you to your knees
Is not your final resting place, not your final destiny
Your soul belongs in eternity
Closing your eyes, you are now ready to fly
Trust those wings to carry your burdens
Carry your weight, light as a feather, forevermore
No matter how worn, no matter how torn
Trust in Him and you will soar.
“But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” Isaiah 40:31
Oh what sweet words of wisdom to walk with for this new year! Thanks for joining us for Coffee Hour with Chicklit Power and Faith-Filled Friday’s with Trench Classes United. Enjoy this love letter from the heart of God to Debra’s heart now to yours.
Good morning, My child.
True love for Me means obeying My commands, and My commands don't weigh you down as heavy burdens. I never ask you to do anything that you cannot do; and then I give you the strength and the ability to do what I do ask. So My burden is not heavy. If you are feeling weighted down today, take a step back and do a quick inventory: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual, then you will find what is putting a strain on you.
Take care of yourself that you may be strong for My work. Rest when you need to rest. Take time with Me that your spirit can be refreshed. Be sharp, be quick to declare My Word. Have a Scripture for everything! Then you will have an encouraging word for everyone you meet along the way.
Everything I do is to make you more like Me. Look at your life, your activities; do you look like Me? Beloved, let your love for Me flow through you causing you to love your neighbor as yourself.
From His heart to yours,
Faith Filled Friday
Good morning, My warrior. My grace is always more than enough for you, and My power finds its full expression through your weaknesses. So celebrate your weaknesses, for when you are weak you sense more deeply the mighty power of Me living in you.
I desire that you look to Me in all things; that you learn to trust Me and rely on Me; that you train your ear to hear My voice, to know the leading of the Holy Spirit. I don't lead you into bad situations and if you are listening to Me, you will never find yourself there.
Take an inventory of your life. Are there things that cause you to compromise yourself, your faith? Are you full of worldly desires, selfishness or bitterness? You say that I am your Lord, but you never let Me sit on the throne of your heart and life. I desire to be your Lord, your Savior, the King of your life.
Beloved, I desire to be the God that leads you out of the desert and into the promise land, where there is milk and honey.
From the heart of God thru…
The greatest gift ever given, the biggest sacrifice ever suffered is the “Who” and the “Why” of today.
This Christmas, may you create memories that make your heart smile and carry you to and thru the new year!

Oh, it’s such a wonderful time of year to just be…joyful, with family, content, soaking up love and creating memories that make us smile in the years ahead.
Thanks for joining us for our Monday’s Message from Abby.
On the Eve of Christmas we do hold dear But it’s more than gifts with ribbons
All the family & friends that have come near and garland with bows
celebrating the giving of joy It’s about being led by His Spirit
& the birth of a baby Boy wherever you go, He goes
We give & receive Seasons are changing and so are we
We wrap & we bake Each day we are closer to eternity
The feeling of warmth as our hearts partake an eternal life given by Him
Is a feeling of love that cannot be replaced In a place with no evil, no more sin
But let us remember the real reason we celebrate His son He did give
The birth of a Son to let us truly live
The way, The Truth, The Life a life full of love
The One a gift from above
He is the reason we dedicate this one day of the year no present can surpass
to be filled to the brim with holiday cheer no gift ever outlast
The glitter, the snow the human He became
The lights all aglow to save us from our ways
So on this special holiday
Let us remember to also give thanks
That one day soon you will see Him at Heaven’s gate
and thank Him, praise Him face to face
Faith Filled Friday
Good morning, My love.
Remember to stay alert and hold firmly to all that you believe. Be mighty and full of courage. Let love and kindness be the motivation behind all that you do. For love and kindness are what people remember.
You can tell them about Me all day long, but unless you are compassionate, unless you love unconditionally, people barely hear you. But when your life lines up with My Word, that is when you become most effective.
People want to be delivered from the hell they are living through now, they don't really care about the sweet by-and-by. Do you take the time to listen? Do you care about their struggle? Sometimes the best answer is to listen. Some just need to be heard. And when you take the time to just listen, oh My love, then you can shower them with love and compassion, for that is worth more than silver and gold.
People need to know they are loved. Just like I gave My life for you, I gave My life for them. Beloved, embrace those I put in your path for they need your love and My life.
Turning your day around But you’ve been drifting off to sea
When life has flipped upside down drowning in a mind filled with unease
Is much harder than it seems with thoughts that this life is not working
But that heart of yours is stronger than you think exactly how you were hoping
The knots you’re feeling Just wait and listen
The heart aching Drown out the noise
Gut wrenching The thoughts of negativity
Twisting and reeling depression, and sorrow stained dreams
It’s reeling you in This life is all that we are given, worth much more
to feel like a failure than to be driven by self-doubt and fear
leaving you wondering When you realize your time is so very near
where in the world is my Savior… Happiness will replace those tears
“Right here”, he whispers Remember this, and never forget:
Everything you are doing is right
Keep praying with all of your might
Look to the Light
Your future, darling, is more than bright
I love when someone is so willing to share their heart, and especially when that heart is so in tune with God’s! Thanks for joining us for Coffee Hour with Chicklit Power and Abby, and Monday’s Message w Trench Classes United.
Those burdens your carrying Look up to me
That weight you’re feeling my hand is reaching
Let it go; give it to Me reaching towards you
My love is for you
I have made you
I have created you Let your worries become mine
and I will sustain you and your troubles
they will be lifted
You worry about the days ahead Ask and it will be given
But I have said
I will carry you Seek Me and listen
I will rescue you to the words I speak
and I will sustain you Feel the whispers I breathe
of My love, freely given
Child of mine
Do not fret Child, I will make your doubts disappear
I am always near
