As I am listening to my playlist on youtube, the song comes on Alabaster Box, by CeCe Winans. The song ends, and she speaks, You don’t know what I have been through. You weren’t there the night Jesus found me. You did not feel what I felt when Jesus wrapped His arms around me! You don’t know the cost of the Oil in my alabaster box. No one knows what you have come through, so many people “think” they do, or make comments about that they do. We/ each of us has such emotion that is welled up inside of us and it’s time to let it out. Of course don’t sin. Scripture even says, “Be angry and don’t sin” In context of Ephesians: 4:25… Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbor: for we are members one of another. 26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: 27 Neither give place to the devil. Only the Lord knows our pains beside we ourselves. We want everyone to understand us, to accept us, and that will never be. BUT GOD does understand us, accept us and that is because HE CREATED US! He has wonderful plans for us; Jeremiah 29:11 …. For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. He created me you/us/me in the wombs of our moms….. Psalm 139:13 For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb. You are like clay in My hands too, says our Creator! Pay attention to what He told Israel, and He say’s to you! I created/made you! Jeremiah 18:1-6 The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord: 2 “Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will let you hear my words.” 3 So I went down tothe potter’s house, and there he was working at his wheel. 4 And the vessel he was making of clay was spoiled in the potter’s hand, and he reworked it into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to do. 5 Then the word of the Lord came to me: 6 “O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter has done? declares the Lord. Behold, like the clay in the potter’s hand, so are you in my hand, O house of Israel. It is now time to humble ourselves…… II Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. We are in a time of revival, and that revivals starts with true humility, letting God be the Creator and not the aquaintence of ourselves. Are you ready, It’s time! Let’s go, be, and do what He has called us to be and do. SHALOM!
I love nature/creation and in so, see/hear great things most don’t. From the colors of the underside of leaves, to how many wings a dragonfly has. Here recently I keep hearing a sound and a few weeks ago, looked up into the sky when I heard it. At first I could not see what I was hearing, and even was wondering if it was angelic. I got my binoculars and saw these birds that were black and white and were surely flying in/around/by/out of one another. Now I declare that where one has waited for sometime, some…………… time……………… :
The time has come and will be swift this week! Ones throat will vocalize with another and this will be a true of those of us that will gather in small groups for the Lord God this season even! Black and White stands for the fact that many of us, see in that way! We either see it black or white, not a grey. This is even in ones walk with the Lord. No grey areas………….. Grey Areas
So often we can get information/communication of the Lord God, through situations/ colors/ foods we see or eat, and ever so many other things. This posting is about the swifts and we are in that time of having much we have waited on, be it for a season, or many have waiting their entire lives for some things………………….
Another tidbit about the white throated swifts are the fact they only get into large groups where they commune/live. When they fly it is usually in very small groups, and that is the season we are in. The body of Christ has come into a season of meeting in small home groups, as well as meeting in coffee shops and maybe even parks/ outdoor areas. This is a time of being intimate for so many are not and keep alot to themselves. A time to trust your “issues” with a few others. We are the Body of Christ and we NEED and SHOULD meet more together. It is time to strengthen and be there for one another. One last tidbit, (as important as all else), keep those things quiet/to yourself and don’t share outside the group/ except with Holy Spirit.
