"He is My Permanent Position!"

"It is in the intimacy of God's embrace I will dwell. If I must run into His arms, it indicates I have gone off on my own. I must not do so. One split second without Him and I am back in my failure and defeat. In every temptation or circumstance, He is my permanent position." -- Stephen Manley 

Give away your life... To God exclusively and indefinitely!

Be A Genuine Jesus Lamp...

I've been saturating in the Sacred Scriptures all year. Especially in The New Testament Gospel writings of Luke, The Holy Spirit has been speaking so very much to me from The Holy Counsel of God. 

So, today, one line from the lips of our Lord Jesus (recorded in Luke 11:35) stopped me immediately in my tracks:

"So, be careful that the light in you isn't darkness."

I can only plead The Blood of Jesus and pray: 

"Father God, You have searched me and know me. Please let the Light in my life be Your Legitimate Light. Let all other lights go dim, and only The Light of the Life of Your Son, my Savior, Jesus of Nazareth, be the illumination within me. I desperately despise darkness and purposely ask You specifically to be The Beacon of my Being. I want to be a genuine Jesus lamp. In Jesus' Name. Amen.

Give away your life... To THE LIGHT!

"Be My God." -- A Prayer

"O Lord You have searched me and known me..." -- Psalm 139:1

"My God, You are the God of the early mornings, the God of the late nights; the God of the mountain peaks, the God of the sea; but My God, my soul has further horizons than the early mornings, deeper darkness than the nights of the earth, higher peaks than any mountain, greater depths than any sea -- You are the God of all these, be my God. I cannot search to the heights or to the depths; there are motives I cannot trace, dreams I cannot get at; my God, search me out and explore me, and let me know that you have." 
-- Oswald Chambers, (The Psalmist has implied these truths prayed above.)

Give away your life... To Your God.

"Grief is..."

I tweeted this quote last night and 24 hours later it is still deep water for my mind. 

"Grief 
is losing a single person and feeling as if the world is empty."
(Meryl Streep quote, Grammys)

Must surely be how the disciples felt right after Jesus died on Calvary's Cross. 

Give away your life...

Jesus Was Sourced By The Holy Spirit

Luke 4:1-2 GWT
“1 Jesus was filled with The Holy Spirit as he left the Jordan River. The Spirit led him while he was in the desert, 2 where he was tempted by the devil for 40 days.”

Luke 4:14-15 GWT
“14 Jesus returned to Galilee. The power of the Spirit was with him, and the news about him spread throughout the surrounding country. 15 He taught in the synagogues, and everyone praised him.”

Luke 4:16b-19 GWT
“He stood up to read the lesson. 17 The attendant gave him the book of the prophet Isaiah. He opened it and found the place where it read: 18 "The Spirit of the Lord is with me. He has anointed me to tell the Good News to the poor. He has sent me to announce forgiveness to the prisoners of sin and the restoring of sight to the blind, to forgive those who have been shattered by sin, 19 to announce the year of the Lord’s favor.”

Give away your life... To The Holy Spirit.

"It is Enough if it is His Blessed Will..."

With infinite care and forethought God has chosen the best place in which you can do your best work for the world. You may be lonely, but you have no more right to complain than the lamp has, which has been placed in a niche to illuminate a dark landing or a flight of dangerous steps. The Master of the house may have put you in a very small corner and on a very humble stand; but it is enough if it is His blessed will. Some day He will pass by, and you shall light His footsteps as He goes forth to seek and to save that which was lost...
-- Selected

Give away your life.. To The Master.
