God is speaking to me simply about “life”

I feel like The Lord God is speaking to me simply about “life” and about being “alive.” More than that I know He is speaking to me about love and what it means to truly love and to be able to love with all of your heart. I know He is healing my broken heart.

I am so grateful that God keeps reminding me of when Jesus was on The Cross, in the final moments of His Crucifixion. Even though our Savior was in such terrible and unfathomable pain and suffering for all of mankind, He was still concerned with the best interest of others. In the worst of His circumstances, He was only worried about how He could make someone else’s better.

 

John 19:26-27 (KJV)

26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!

27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.

 

I am so moved by Jesus’ love for others in my heart. God is working something new in me. He has placed in my heart a desire to know Him like never before, to pursue Him with all of my heart. God has also revealed to me what real love is. Real love is Sacrifice and serving others. Real love is not just a feeling but a decision.

I praise The Lord God Almighty that this morning He had a dear Sister in Christ send me this beautiful, inspirational music video. It quickly brought me to tears. The song is called

“Rise up” by singer Andra Day.

The lyrics to this song below:

Rise Up

By Andra Day

 

You’re broken down and tired
Of living life on a merry go round
And you can’t find the fighter
But I see it in you so we gonna walk it out
And move mountains
We gonna walk it out
And move mountains

And I’ll rise up
I’ll rise like the day
I’ll rise up
I’ll rise unafraid
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousand times again
And I’ll rise up
High like the waves
I’ll rise up
In spite of the ache
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousands times again
For you
For you
For you
For you

When the silence isn’t quiet
And it feels like it’s getting hard to breathe
And I know you feel like dying
But I promise we’ll take the world to its feet
And move mountains
We’ll take it to its feet
And move mountains

And I’ll rise up
I’ll rise like the day
I’ll rise up
I’ll rise unafraid
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousand times again
For you
For you
For you
For you

All we need, all we need is hope
And for that we have each other
And for that we have each other
We will rise
We will rise
We’ll rise, oh oh
We’ll rise

I’ll rise up
Rise like the day
I’ll rise up
In spite of the ache
I will rise a thousands times again
And we’ll rise up
Rise like the waves
We’ll rise up
In spite of the ache
We’ll rise up
And we’ll do it a thousands times again
For you oh oh oh oh oh
For you oh oh oh oh oh
For you oh oh oh oh oh
For you

Even in the shower as I was washing my hair today The Holy Spirit was ministering to me about purity and life. He was showing me how there are so many chemicals in the facial wash that I have been using to clear up my skin. Recently my face became very dry and irritated because I was using the facial wash a lot more. Man made chemicals are harsh on our bodies. I am interested in looking into natural soaps and remedies. God is making me whole just like I prayed. I prayed He would make me whole in healing my broken heart so I could love Him with all of me and keep the commandments. He’s doing even more still.

God is restoring ALL parts of me and my life. All aspects of my existence are being made whole. Jesus came to set the captives free. I am learning what it means to love God wholly along with loving others entirely, to become selfless like Jesus and not follow the natural selfish ways of the flesh. Jesus is going to restore what’s been broken in making it brand new. He can and will do that for all of us if we just ask.

He’s teaching me to be quiet. God is answering my prayers and giving me the ability to be still before Him, to have more quiet time with less noise and confusion.

Psalm 46:10-11 King (KJV)

10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

11 The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

 

No more tension, fear, pain and being uncomfortable with my stomach in knots…just the peace of God, resting in The Arms of Jesus. Casting all my cares upon Him for He cares for me. Not worrying anymore, but instead trusting that I am completely safe in The Hands of God, and as it is written, nothing can pluck me from His Hands. I am learning what it means to surrender to God. The more I let go the easier it gets. This is something that He has to work out in all of us. We are all different and at different points in our lives.

Thank you Jesus for all of this and I pray that you bless someone else with what you have had me share in Your Holy Name, Amen.
