Let Me Do the Heavy Lifting

I feel like lead today, I’m facing a big change in my life and the impact of it feels like a great big slab of concrete on my back.  On the way to the shop, the Lord reminded me that he carries all of my burdens. We had a chat as I walked along the path, at first I thought; God you are not my servant or my bag carrier how can I expect you to carry this?  God challenged my thinking,  reminding me that he tells me to cast my burdens on him because he cares for me.  Then he showed me that he likes helping me because he is my good good father and he wants me to know that he is supporting me.  So, I let him take the slab of concrete; I saw him touch it and its size went from a massive dominating thing to the size of a coin that he popped into his pocket, he smiled at me. Then I saw him giving me a piggy back which made me smile.

I thought, I can walk through this thing with God by my side, if only I will let him do the heavy lifting.  I also saw the challenge that I am facing from God’s perspective.  Like the scene from Transformers where the military have a cube called the All Spark that the meanies are looking for.  The All Spark took up a lot of space in an underground facility but when Bumble Bee, one of the Autobots,  touched it the All Spark reduced to the size of a small cube that could be carried in a boy’s hand.

God, I will let you do the heavy lifting and I will remind myself of your perspective so that I can live in the peace, joy and the lightness you promise me.

How God Works 1

This year was the first year I tried to grow some veg. Gardening has never appealed to me. Both of my parents came from farming stock and had green fingers. When I was a child they used to ask my sisters and me to help them with the gardening. I could never understand why they enjoyed gardening and used to run a mile at the very mention of the word.

I definitely do not have green fingers, I generally forget to feed and water plants and so eventually my neglect kills them. This year I felt a new ability to commit to grow something from seed.  I am surprised by what I have learnt through this process. My spiritual mum Ve always says ‘if you want to know how God works look at nature.’  I have to agree with her as I have discovered growing plants really does give you a window into the way God the creator works.

Witness To My Heart

Single Cover
Do you have trouble believing that Father God loves you?

Do you know how much He loves you?

Do you know He leaps for joy whenever you bound into His presence?

This song might change your life if you let it!

John Ryeland Director of The Christian Healing Mission suggested that I write about the Father. He gave me a couple of books to read one was ‘From Oprhans to Heirs’ by Mark Stibbe and the other was ‘The Father’s Blessing’ by John Arnott. Here is the song that came out of my studies on the Father’s love.

This song changed my life. I’ve always known in my head that the Father of heaven loves me. The head knowledge needed to get into my heart and stay there, which is the work of the Holy Spirit and not something that I could do for myself.

The song asks the Holy Spirit to ‘get this truth into my heart’ and to ‘witness to my heart until I really believe’. As I sang the song and it became a part of me God convinced of His unconditional love, His approval of me.

You can listen to the song via the player on the right and you can download the song from iTunes. I’ll post a chart for the song soon but in the mean time here are the words.  The main thing that will stop you from receiving the message of this song into your heart is disagreement.  John Ryeland always says as much as you can let you inner voice say yes to the truth that you hear.

Witness To My Heart

I know you have adopted me

You’ve given me a family

I know that I am your child

And you are my Father

  

Well I know this truth in my head

But I need to know it in my heart

  

Spirit of God

Fall a fresh on me today,  today

Spirit of God

Reveal the Father’s love for me again, again

Witness to my heart

That I really do belong

That I have a place in His heart

Get it into my heart

Get it into my heart

  

Witness to my heart till I believe

Recording date set

The recording session is booked and from here on in life gets a bit more intense with rehearsals, coaching, artwork etc.  I’m so excited to finally get back into the studio to record this song.  I’ve been in so many situations where I have felt that people need to hear this song and at last I’ve got my act together!  I’ll be in the studio in mid May.
