“But I am the only Love you will ever need!” – Psalm 29

June 1, 2011
Psalm 29:4 The Lord's voice is powerful; the Lord's voice is majestic.

God has given me more instances of hindsight and ah ha moments than I care to reveal. I would rather not write this message, but… a few days ago. Well.  I felt melancholic...  I know the reason I felt that way, but it’s not necessary for me to reveal it in order to bring you this message.

I made bad choices in my younger years – I wasn’t walking in God’s light. No excuses – that’s just my reality. And, the reality is that I am now facing those consequences. But the amazing thing is that I face consequences as I hang on to God. There’s one thing I’ve learned in my divine journey: I will not let go of God during my periods of regret.

Back to my story, a few days ago I had one of those regret episodes, but before I wasted precious time feeling sorry for myself, God spoke to me.  I clearly heard him say, “But I am the only Love you will ever need!” It took my breath away! I turned around and smiled at the air – as if he was standing there in human Jesus form! I realized that God is the only Love I will ever need. I am satisfied. God spoke.

  1. I completely understand why you didn't want to write this post. I too have felt lack of love in my life, and God said the same thing to me.

    I know that as humans we feel the need to have that relationship with someone else, and to be close to another human being, but I think that the lesson God showed me was that I wasn't prepared to love a human being unconditionally, until I experienced His love unconditionally.

    I am by far there yet, but I'm not where I was, and I know that no matter what life brings, I have what I need in Christ!

    God bless you, and thank you for sharing this blog!

When it hurts to care – Psalm 31:7

When it hurts to care – Psalm 31:7 Psalm 31:7 I will be glad and rejoice in your unfailing love, for you have seen my troubles, and you care about the anguish of my soul. One of God’s gifts to me is the ability to care about and pray for those who are ill. But right now, my mother is at the end of her life, and another key person in my life recently received bad health news. I also follow the Facebook journey of a courageous 12-year old girl, Jessie Rees ,  who suffered from two inoperable brain tumors. She passed away a few days ago. I am sad. But it’s interesting that in my sadness, I’ve come to appreciate how God works my faith steps. Before I decided that God’s purpose for me was greater than my own purpose, I had a hard time being close to people because it hurt that they might die or leave me. God opened my understanding (and healed me) so that I could come to terms with that and step into the gifts of compassion he planned for me. I started to feel that familiar hurt e

Sweet Sixteen

  Today is my spiritual birthday – the date that changed my entire life.  It’s the before and after life changing date when my eyes were  opened to the divineness of God. I’ve been on an exhilarating and sometimes uncomfortable journey  full of experiences I never imagined I could or want to handle. But the best part of my journey is how God expanded my closed “religious”  mind and views. The knowledge I have is but a drop in the cosmic (heavenly) bucket; and I’ve learned that I’m in no position to impose my views on  people of different faiths or no faiths. There’s room at the table for all of us. We are all welcome and loved! There’s always room at the table. My life has been about constantly getting myself out of comfort zones  I prefer…always hesitating but drawn to the next adventure. That fateful, ever evolving connection to God has powered everything  about my life. It has taken me from the depths of despair to the heights of love;  from the holy experience of helping loved ones

Scripture: Psalm 92:12-15 Psalm 92: 12 Good people will prosper     like palm trees,     and they will grow strong     like the cedars of Lebanon. 13 They will take root in your house, LORD God,     and they will do well. 14 They will be like trees that stay healthy and fruitful,     even when they are old. 15 And they will say about you, “The LORD always does right!  God is our mighty rock.” Keep learning – a lazy brain is a decaying brain Keep loving – don’t be bitter Keep laughing – 😊 Keep leaving your past behind – don’t live in the rear-view mirror of your life Keep longing Keep dreaming about the future – it’s a matter of attitude Keep looking your best Keep laboring and working – there’s no retirement in the Bible Keep learning, depending, and trusting in the Lord Keep listening to God – to know
