Nourished UP in Him this morning!

Stirred UP to remember His yoke IS UNION … what God hath joined together let no man put asunder [asunder means to separate, divorce, or divide].He hates divorce was to the wandering children of Israel who went about establishing there own ways of righteousness. Setting up vain ways to join themselves to God in their own understanding; instead of just trust and believe they were IN HIM Holy and blessed to possess the Holy land. Christ is the Holy One – the Fit Man – the Perfect Lamb – the One Rock IN whom we stand.

His JOY – This is That – is He has rendered unto ALL men His Righteousness [Christ as all in all] and that is the JOY seen on His face, the favor, the Power of the Resurrection, and our shared strength with Peace to abound IN ONE sound.

A Life Built on Faith

What are you building into your life each day?

So many things I see around me in the natural that are under construction. Beliefs are continually under construction. Advertising is trying to get our attention and to believe “it’s the real thing.”

Faith means to trust and believe. More importantly in whom or what have we put our trust in?

The focus of our attention in this world is forever changing. Having a life built on Faith is trusting the truth of God’s word to be forever settled in heaven and on earth. In heaven is the invisible and on earth is the visible.

We can experience a knowing in our heart that all is well. Our Father is forever satisfied and well pleased with us.

It doesn’t matter how strong we are. We all have down times or what I call needing a mental health day. What’s important is to hold onto hope. Christ in us is the Hope to anchor each thought. A stronghold is only a mindset that has believed a lie.

It’s time to be kind to your mind. No fight is needed even that has been completed. It only takes the letting go of the old to make room for the new. Return your focus to the Light and Love is letting go of those lies.

Lies that no longer serve you anything but stress and worry to feel driven and hurried. The truth is Love and it does feel good. It is peaceable and patient. Patience is the fruit of trust which circles us right back to Faith.

God’s Love is present IN us to know He is patient with us. I believe in strengthening my life built on Faith.

Happy Fall Y’all!
