“Go Shut Yourself Inside Your House”

Ezekiel 3:24

Thank Buenosia Carol for the picture.

“I come to the garden alone while the dew is still on the roses” Music, musical, musical notation, musical note, musical symbol ...

Through this epidemic, there’s no difference for people who were shut in before; living alone, not driving, maybe not walking, having meals delivered to them. Now we’re all living like them.  Could they have resilience that we sometimes lack?

Matthew 24:13, “Those who endure to the end will be saved.”

LORD Father, help us care for our neighbors and friends, keep communication open, bless them with comfort, provisions and encouraging words and songs.

Pumpkin Seed Vision and Grounded Prophecy

Romans 8:37-39, “Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

“For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

After my friend’s ankle surgery, the doctor told her on March 17, that she would be ‘grounded’ until end of May.  She was to keep off her feet, using a wheelchair to get around one floor of their home.

This seemed to replicate the whole world being told to stay in our homes. She’s a constant intercessor for others.

On March 28, I noticed a whole pumpkin on someone’s curb. Suddenly a vision: the pumpkin was split in two, the seeds were sown and grown into new plants all in about 2 seconds.

This seems to parallel the rapid contagious behavior of the C virus.

Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy. For he who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God, for no one understands him; however, in the spirit he speaks mysteries. But he who prophesies speaks edification and exhortation and comfort to men.”                              1 Corinthians 14:1-3

Extend Your Soul to the Hungry

If you extend your soul to the hungry
And satisfy the afflicted soul,
Then your light shall dawn in the darkness,
And your darkness shall be as the noonday.

The Lord will guide you continually,
And satisfy your soul in drought,
And strengthen your bones;
You shall be like a watered garden,
And like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.

Isaiah 58:10-11

Open your mouth for the speechless,
In the cause of all who are appointed to die.
Open your mouth, judge righteously,
And plead the cause of the poor and needy.

Proverbs 31:8-9

Kathy’s Smile

“But as many as received Him, to them He gave power to become the sons of God.” John 1:12

“And if children, then heirs – heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.”    Romans 8:17

Kathy, a sister in Christ, informed me that people with money need the Lord, too. Even more that people in material need.

Father, let us be your united children, bless, encourage and admonish one another in love

 

 

Marry Me, Jesus

“The bride belongs to the bridegroom. The friend who attends the bridegroom waits and listens for him, and is full of joy when he hears the bridegroom’s voice. That joy is mine, and it is now complete.” John the Baptist about Him, John 3:29 (NIV)  

My soul kept crying out this way to Jesus a few months ago. Is He not our Bridegroom afterall?

“Whoso seeketh her early shall have no great travail: for he shall find her sitting at his doors.”  Song 6:14 (KJV)

 

Divine Friendships

Dear Lord, thank You for this warm, richness of divine love from my friends.  When they or I need, You pull us together though we may be miles apart.  Remembering prayers, joys & hardships over the years.

Thank You for new friends and the funny things we share and how we meet.  Thank You for renewed friendships we rediscover each other further along the river of life, and welcome the joy in common bonds.

“I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.”                    John 15:15

“A man who has friends must himself be friendly, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.”      Proverbs 18:24
