TODAY'S WORDS ARE TO: TAKE HEART!



Today’s Words are to: TAKE HEART!

Yes, friends it just that clear, take heart. In big caps, in enunciated syllables if you will! In an exaggerated dialect, speak it and register this: take heart! Meaning don’t worry, don’t fret, don’t be intimidated, don’t be afraid! As Bishop Brooner would say, “Don’t be afraid, afraid of false evidence appearing real.” My God it’s good to know that we can take comfort-own the security that God’s steering our lives, God’s vessel-us, my life, and your life! He cares for what concerns us. This was made so clear this morning as I sat myself at my desk and prepared for another work day. At the click of a mouse here‘s what was once again revealed during a devotional moment on: Blue Letter Bible.org:

Today's Promise from the Bible

John 4:14

But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

Reflection

Take heart in the evident promise of your salvation: that always and forever shall your soul be filled to overflowing with abundant and eternal life! Never shall you thirst. Never shall you dry up. Never shall your soul be parched. Rather take joy in this: unto everlasting shall your heart's thirst be quenched as rivers of God's living water pour down from heaven as you bask in the glory of God's own Son: Christ Jesus.

The sentiment of today's devotional lines up so beautifully with my post written during Lenten season: MEET YOU AT THE WELL: HAVING A HEART-TO-HEART WITH JESUS! shared on my blog: Celebrating Ordinary Days With Extraordinary Promises. After reading this post we can breathe much easier. Let’s exhale! God is our very breathe! That’s all the reason to praise the Lord inspirit and in truth!

Let’s prepare for the day ahead and sing about God's glory with Mary Alessi and her anointed friends, We Thirst For You. Come on, come on and be ushered into praise and worship. Listening to the lyrics and participating in this awesome praise and worship you can't help but to react and bask in the glow! The Holy Spirit is speaking. Let the chills run down your spine, the hairs stand up on your arms as your soul relishes that all the hustle and bustle does not negate that our real search is a soul-a heart awakening experience. Why? Because we thirst for Him-more of Him! Jehovah, Friend, Father, Teacher, Lord, Shepard, Mother, Savior, Jesus Christ, Adoni Messiah! Blessings to you today on this refreshing, restorative day!


May Alessi & friends singing: We Thirst For You

GOD HAS A PLAN FOR YOU! BLESSINGS TO OUR BELOVED MEN: A FATHER'S DAY TRIBUTE!



“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness”
(2 Timothy 3:16-17)





'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'

Jeremiah 29:11




Happy Father’s Day to all of the brothers, uncles, stepfathers, adopted Big Daddies and super fathers. You are our beloved men both young and old-standing in the gap for us: your children, loved ones and many others that depend and count on you!


Priceless is what you are! We cherish your loving guidance, coaching, strong silence, active participation, unique discipline, direction, no nonsense demeanor, humor, finances and constant prayers. Because God has fashioned you, we are confidently assured! There’s assurance that you’ll share your heart and be there to celebrate our accomplishments.


Thank you for providing the needed support and love on those countless occasions…Yes, we know without a doubt that you like our Heavenly Father are a present help! Take a look in the mirror and confidently realize that you are an awesome help especially when we are experiencing hardships, moments of being left out in the rain, waiting in the corridors confused, perplexed, and seemingly abandoned.

Like the countless nights you patiently sat between the door and the phone anticipating our return home; greeting us with a firm scolding.

When you gave your last few dollars, knowing full well a paycheck was weeks away;

When you told us so and reminded us that you weren’t surprised with the outcome;

When you planted that kissed on our foreheads, hugged our shoulders and encouraged us to be calm and not utter a word;

When we made that dreaded phone call and got a surprising conversation that changed our outlook and lifted our spirits;

When you sat on the floor with the other parents as we served you Peanut Stew and recited our poems;

When we felt embarrassed by your school visit, but later appreciated how you demonstrated your concern by your active involvement.

Oh the gratitude list grows moment by moment. You are doing an exemplary job! Thank you for being a steady stream, an anchor and our strength! We praise God for your wonderful presence. May you continue to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit! Remember God has a plan for you, the Holy Scripture says so!


Enjoy your day and this virtual gift of this TD Jakes video. We love you truly, Happy Father’s Day!
