What the Lord told me about Thanksgiving.

Isaish 65:16-17
" For the past troubles will be forgotten and hidden from My eyes. Behold I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind. Verse 18. I will rejoice and take delight in my people."

God remembers, forgets, hinds, our past troubles and sins.
I am a new creation in Christ.
That my mistakes are small compared to the righteousness of His grace.

" Before they call I will answer while they are still speaking I will hear." 24.

Before I begin to confess God already hears
while Im speaking He was always listening

1john 1:9
He is faithful to forgive us of our sin

He is worthy of all glory and praise.

" Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain." Psalm 139:6

God is so loving.
I cant believe I would even lend my heart out to be consumed by anything else.
I long for the passion of Christ, no longer will I search for marriage or approval by man.
I will dig into the heart of my Father and seek the spirit to pour

romans 5: 5
" And hope does not disappoint us because God has poured out His love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit whom He has given us."

While we were still powerless and overcome with sin Jesus Christ, friday a thief sunday a king, gave His life so we , you and I can have life and He laid death in His grave.
Life is for you and I .
to walk in light 1 John 1
to walk in this truth that sets us free, to pray and have power in His name. But death is not like the trespass.
Gods give brings us life, the trespass brought death .

I am thankful for a savior who washes away my sin and forgets
who loves me with everything of His kingdom.
It is not about me, but others, and that is a beautiful love.
In the words of david. " you think Im undignified now, I will become even more than this."

All praise and thanksgiving be to you Holy and gracious father whop remembers my sin no more, all glory and power to Your name. Daddy consume me like a winters fall and come and burn me with a kiss.
In Jesus name and by the power of the mighty Holy Spirit. Amen.

And in today already walks tomorrow.

Its been to long.

How do we as people become so selfish?
When do we start over looking others to pride ourselves?
Its unique , The God and Jesus I fell in love with many years ago isn't the same one to me anymore....
Its not that He has changed.... its I..... that has changed...
I never thought it would come to this but I have become bitter towards people...
I have lost the reason to follow the Lord I fell in love with...
Its a wonder to me..
who was it that I feel in love with..
I remember being so connected with God.
How differently my conversations were with people..
How different my coffee tasted... how much better my days were..
This separation that I have come to know is not what I want for my life.
John 10:10 once told me Jesus came to give me abundant life and that in Him I can have complete joy.

I once heard a story .
There was this old man and his old wife and they would take road trips.
They drove a single cab truck.
And she being the head over heels in love woman would ride right by the mans side...
and one day slowly moved and moved until she was fasted with her own seat belt.
She looked over at her husband and asked " why dont we sit close to one another anymore?" and he replied " Who moved?"

It is I that has moved.
There comes times in a relationship were things are passionate..
I have yet to give Jesus a passionate moment with my heart. I have starved Him of the love He wants from me even though He promises good for me, I forget my roll in our relationship.
He is provider and my hands... can not.

Im relearning of who I once fell in love with.
I have told one of my students Jesus was all about meeting the broken where their at.
Im going to take my own advice.
Jesus once met a broken woman at a well and offered her life.
Well, Im thirsty
and hungry
and I dont ever wan to thirst again.

I'll finish this later.

until then.
Believing He is who He says He is ,
