God is near the brokenhearted

The Isaiah 53:5 Project

“God is near the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”

– Psalm 34:18

I’ve experienced it. You’ve experienced it. Rejection is painful. It makes you believe you’re not valued, not wanted, and causes you to feel bad about yourself.

Isaiah 41:10 says, “Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

There was a period in my life when I experienced rejection from all different angles. For a time, I wondered if God even cared, and found myself asking, “Where are you God? Do you hear my prayers?”

In the Psalms, David often wrote out of his own grief and loneliness, crying out to God to hear his pleas, feeling overwhelmed and desolate in his heart.

The feeling of loneliness as a result…

Are You Watching?

Are you looking for Jesus? Or..are you caught up in the things of this world? Many are sleeping and not watching for The Master’s return. When Jesus catches His Bride away in the air, it will be like in the days of Noah and Lot. Life is carrying on as normal before The Tribulation. People are eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, buying & selling, planting and building. People are busy in their plans concerning this life on earth, forgetting that at any moment now the sky will part as the Trumpet of God sounds and the dead in Christ rise first. Do not be caught up in this world. It could occur any moment & the “left behind” multitude realizes that the Bride of Christ is gone with the Bridegroom.

Bride

The Book of Revelation is a literal book and nothing is clearer than the company of Tribulation saints in Revelation 7. No picture in the Book of Revelation is more graphic than this multitude of dying or dead saints, martyred for their faith in Jesus Christ. This vast number is clearly the multitudes that missed the Rapture but repented and became willing sacrifices for Christ.

The cost of discipleship today does not touch the cost of discipleship after the Rapture. The devil will have lost the prize of the “Bride of Christ” he had so determined to destroy. Being left behind, then in order to follow Christ and make it to Heaven, the only way will be dying for Him, as a martyr. The Mark of the Beast that enables people to buy or sell in their right hand or forehead is a guarantee for Hell once you take it. It’s easy to say you wouldn’t take the Mark of The Beast for Jesus in the Tribulation…but think about starving to death for instance. Read Revelation Chapter 13.

Matthew 25:6-10 King James Version

6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.

7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.

8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.

9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.

10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

Are you shining bright for Christ, or are you lukewarm? Are you living with one foot in the world and one with Jesus? This is so serious!

Mark 13:32-37 King James Version (KJV)

32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.

33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.

34 For the Son of Man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.

35 Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:

36 Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.

37 And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.

Also,

Luke 21:34-36 King James Version

34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.

35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.

36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

AMAZING GRACE

The Isaiah 53:5 Project

Grace is a word not used much today. Maybe because the act of being gracious isn’t being taught. Isn’t it funny how some of the old traditional things like good manners, obedience, team work, non violent behavior and caring for each other has to be taught? Maybe that’s why we’re in the state we’re in as a nation today.

Many of the above behaviors are spoken of in the Bible. Most of the characters in that book are just like us. They needed to learn these basic tenets of behavior. We are all by nature sinful. We’re born screaming and protesting and we often go out of this world the same way.

Moses gave his people commands from God. They weren’t merely suggestions. The first talk about loving, honoring and serving God and the rest deal with our relationships with our fellow man. They are still valid today, whether they…

With God I Can

tyLordJESUS

Romans 8:14-18 KJV

14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

 

Praise God for The Holy Spirit reminding me tonight that I need not feel condemned and guilty for lack of servitude. There is great need and opportunity in my very path to serve and to help others, but I am not doing so.  I was reminded tonight that I cannot do it of my own strength. Thank you Jesus! I need to ask God to change me from the inside out and make me able to serve. You see, in listening to the enemy (the accuser of the Brethren), when pointing out my shortcomings I became very depressed. I went to sleep confounded without words.

After I got up, the sweet Spirit of God reminded me of this truth: Father God will finish what he began in me by Himself. He doesn’t need my help. I need His. I cannot change things myself by my own strength. It begins with my personal well-being. The devil has been attacking my entire daily life. I have been going around in a negative circle.  My body clock is off with poor sleep. I am napping around the clock without an actual nightly sleep cycle. Because I am exhausted, I am not exercising, not to mention the poor diet. I am not equipped for the job without my Heavenly Father doing the work in me necessary.  I may be weary and worn but I know that God can turn all of this around. So I give it to Him.

Not by might, but by His Spirit.

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”   Philippians 4:13

Live Like John The Baptist?– A “Heart-Check”

The Abuse Expose' with Secret Angel

As I spend time with God today, I find myself reading about John the Baptist. How many of us would submit our lives to God enough that we would live in the wilderness, eat wild honey and locusts and not care if others thought that we were crazy? How many will leave all that they know behind when God says to go? How many will do whatever God says to do?

Child of God, there is beauty in the valley. We just have to ask Him to show it to us.

Oh Jesus, sweet Lord of mine, please take my hand and lead me through this wilderness. I cannot see but I’m learning to walk by faith. Hold me tight and I will bury my head in your chest and release all of this pain. All of these tears you will catch and they are not in vain. No matter what the enemy says, I am still a Daughter of The King. Though it hurts so much and I can’t make sense of anything, one thing I know is true. You are mine and I am Yours. You never left my side before, and from every pit You’ve delivered me. Jesus I love you and I know that no matter how dark this night may be or how long and winding this valley is…You are embracing me ever so close and I am growing in You. Father God, I am being conformed to the Image of Your Son. Amen.

If you do not know Jesus personally as your Savior and The Lord of your life…

Cry out to Jesus tonight with all of your heart.  Ask Him into your heart and be saved this day! You can’t do this on your own. This Living Water is free for ALL who thirst.

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Brokenhearted and Crushed

The Abuse Expose' with Secret Angel

Brokenness is not a place that any of us want to be…
but it’s a place that many find the One who can put us back together.

Have you ever been this low…
like there’s no lower you can go?
Have you ever felt this crushed…
like your body and soul are mushed?
Have you ever felt so pulverized…
like every ounce of you was crucified?
It’s a place of brokenness…
filled with heartache, pain, and loneliness.
Where no words can sooth your heart…
and the pain of brokenness will not depart.
But God…

All things work together for good…

It was 5:30 a.m. and I woke up in the middle of the night so I went outside to pray. I talked to The Lord about all of my plans on going back to the daily walk today which naturally has 3 blessings:  1. a great night’s sleep,  2. weight-loss, and 3. lifted depression. I realize I need to cut sugar out of my diet because it has once again crept in and taken over ever so subtly. I dealt with an eating disorder for years and found recovery in Christ, but like everyone else I have to be cautious about what I put into my body. Sugar causes depression. Personally, once I get back on the sweet-train I gotta keep on going.  But I went back to bed because it was too early for walking.

I woke up in bed 5 hours later to the sound of my husband calling my name for pizza at 11:30 a.m. So I stumbled out of bed and went in the kitchen. I am lactose intolerant and that cheese pizza was loaded with pain. I picked up 2 very small pieces and at my desk in our office I had 1 piece and a couple bites of the other. Poor decision making. This was a snare from Satan himself.  Today is one of the days my husband and I get along best because there’s money. He wears me out and it’s by the grace of God that we are still together. I’m not perfect either, but he is truly a vessel in which the enemy tries to tear me down. Being unequally yoked is terrible and I would never recommend it to any believer. But then I saw this.

Bible and God Quotes:

Yep. I could’ve died and gone to hell some years back, or been left behind because I attended this particular Church all my life that didn’t teach the whole Bible (I didn’t know there was a rapture). I have been forgiven much and I struggle with loving much. My patience is weak and I’m not one of the stronger sheep in the flock, but Jesus sustains me and has brought me this far in life. I know somehow in the end something amazing is going to come of our 7 year union. It has definitely stretched me out to the end of my limits. Sometimes marriage is like a box of chocolates. Ya never know what you’re gonna get… But looking back I know it saved me from the road I was on. Thank you Jesus.

I pray that my husband comes to know Jesus before it’s too late and I know God could use him in a great way for his purposes in the coming harvest. I’d prefer it be this one, but who knows. Miracles happen daily.

Romans 8:28 kjv  “28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

No matter what you are going through, don’t give up. God has plans for your life. Even on your darker days, He does not change. Be blessed today in Jesus’ Mighty Name!  †

And I'll never be the same
