Touching my heart right now
‘The first step in establishing healthy boundaries is to believe you are worth protecting and have the right to be safe.’ Yvonne Martinez, Take Back Your Life
What a powerful song!
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.
I had the privilege of ministering at The Rock Church, Grow Women’s Conference in Castle Rock, Colorado a few weeks ago alongside Bernie Ooley who is my hero! It was awesome to see God rock the women’s lives as they encountered his heart of love, value and honour during worship. I released a word about back pain and destinies and God healed backs and released destinies. One woman who had experienced pain all over her body for over 20 was healed. It was such a blessing and honour to serve them. We stirred up their beautiful hearts and I can’t wait to see how they turn the world upside down for Jesus!
I have decided to think for myself. I’m not rebellious or independent, nor do I want to re-invent the wheel, so to speak. But I will not let Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Piers Morgan, Ed Schultz, Bill O’Riley or anyone else for that matter think for me. I have been commanded to arise and shine not arise and reflect. I have been called to be a voice not an echo. ‘ How Heaven Invades Earth by Kris Vallotton.
