Moving at the Speed of Love

Lord, I’m tired of doctors sticking labels on me
Like a Venn diagram of disaster.
Here is my mini pharmacy on the shelf:
This for that and that for this, and by the way
Some more because of the side effects.
Death threats disguised as diagnoses.
Heal me, Father! Touch me, Jesus!
Rescue me from this failing body!
Make me whole! Do you believe your Father, or the world? The Kingdom you reside is not the flesh, And you possess the blessings I’ve unfurled, So open up your eyes and look afresh. Rejoice in your affliction for it brought You to this place of need so you can see The multitude of gifts that Spirit wrought, When you fell on your knees with faith in Me. With wisdom, understanding and of might, The power I gave Christ who dwells in you, As you now dwell in Him now walk in…

(I JOHN 5:20 - Little children, keep yourselves from idols.)

Lord, what are You telling me here?

Abide in Me, My child, the Way is straight,
And do not be distracted by the waves.
The enemy would seek to agitate,
With idols so designed to sire slaves.
Such simple things as random idle thought
Can pull you from the union we enjoy.
Take captive every introspective jot,
Discarding all that seeks to steal your joy.
Keep focused on the love I have for you.
Remember I affirmed you from the start,
And as My child, all Spirit’s gifts are true.
You’re always in My thoughts and in My heart.
	Whatever draws your gaze away from Me
	Are nothing more than idols and debris.

Lord, how do I apply this in my life? I’ve given you an arsenal to wield Against the wily plans that Satan plies. The…

Quiet Time 7/9/22

(DEUTERONOMY 31:8 - And the Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.)

Sometimes I feel so alone, Adrift in an ocean of helplessness. My enemies encircle me like sharks, Patiently waiting for me to fall. I am hedged in on all sides And I see no escape. Even though Your presence isn’t felt In these moments of despair, You are with me Incessantly whispering love Into my weary soul. You, O Lord, are my one Beloved; Your promises are true And unfailing. If in fear I don’t sense You It is I that has become numbed By the troubles of this world. But when I cry out to You, Here You are. I forget. You never do. Dismay is transient. You, Lord, are not. Lead me…

Quiet Time 6-22-22 (I CORINTHIANS 15:31 - I affirm, by the boasting in you which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.) What are You telling me, Lord? I died upon the cross so you can live, My body broken, bruised so you’re made whole; My blood was shed so all your sins forgive, I gave my all to save your precious soul. Now you believe in Me with all your heart, And here I dwell in you, My dearest friend; You must be broken daily to take part In all the love and glory that I send. To die to self is life in Me, My love; Surrender all you have with childlike trust, And know I won’t forsake you from above, For in your faith in Me you must entrust. When you die daily, I much more emerge, And here, abide in Me, as we…

(PSALM 16:1 - Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust.)

What are You telling me, Lord?

Take refuge in the love I have for you,
For I surround you with My hedge of grace,
And as you cling to Me with faith so true,
The veil will fall so you can see My Face.
Let nothing stand between the two of us,
For I desire no less than we be one,
And you will know we have much to discuss,
The mysteries that prove you are My son.
Your trust in Me must be so absolute,
For with such pure devotion freedom reigns,
And from the root of hope you bear much fruit,
The glory of My love in you remains.
	Pick up your cross and know that I am Here,
	Preserving you with love and joy so dear.

I John 4:18 Quiet Time

Moving at the Speed of Love

(I JOHN 4:18 - There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.)

Agape love will drive out every fear,
For it displays the perfect will of God.
Considering another’s need is dear,
Whereas a move by angst is surely flawed.
Whatever fear you have will hold you back
From all the gifts that comes from perfect love,
Until the enemies of God attack
And you’re trapped in the flesh and all thereof.
There is no fear in love, it cannot be.
One draws you back, the other draws you in.
Surrender all to Christ and you will see
His Presence casts out fear for love within.
     The only thing to fear is God above;
     With awe and reverence to Him in love.

6/8/22 Quiet Time

(PSALMS 19:1 - The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork.)

Like stars among the trees are fireflies,
While honeysuckle fills the summer air,
And constellations dress the southern sky.
All point to God His majesty declares.
Behold the moon! The mistress of the night,
Reflecting glowing luster from the sun,
And here on Earth creation shouts delight
For all He is and all that He has done.
The glory of the Lord is plain to see,
Within a child’s eyes and mountains tall!
A grain of sand, the swelling of the sea,
The universe proclaims that God is all!
	Attune your heart to love and you will hear
	The heavens praise the name of God so clear.

Moving at the Speed of Love

NOW You tell me to write.
I feel a soft click in my soul
Like a mystic tumbler sliding into place.
NOW You tell me to speak,
With wide open heart,
With suffering and joy.
You get through to me now
As if I’d gained new ears
Attuned to the Spirit
You are my King,
My All.
You tell me there is only One,
You in me
In You.
Is the Kingdom
And the Power
And the Glory
In all ways,
The Way.

*Da,YOU are my voice now.

(Ephesians 1:11-12: 11. In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, 12. that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory.)

9/12/21 – Every Spiritual Blessing

Moving at the Speed of Love

(Ephesians 1:3 - Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ)

Jehovah Jireh promises such gifts
Beyond the count that mortal man can reach,
Of blessings from all spiritual lifts
To those whose Lord is Christ in heart and speech.
Believing that He died for all your sins,
And rose again to conquer death and hell,
You reap the benefits of those who wins,
The Kingdom’s glory now upon you dwells.
Accepted and adopted without blame,
The mystery of God’s will He gives with grace!
A holy child of Abba is your claim,
Ambassador to Heaven in this place!
	Embrace through God your new identity;
	The gifts He showers down on you are free.
