MY. HOUSE






If I cannot refer someone to your place of worship; 

Do you want to know about it ?

Will you hear the plea of the Beloved in the pain of my words... 

By the absence of my presence;
will you notice...

Do you not realize how I long to be there, to be a part of the beautiful picture of life that could be painted in unison through His loving grace...

Do you not long for the seats to be filled to overflowing, and wonder why they are not...

Or will you justify yourselves in your own eyes, from a tainted view of falsehoods, devised to blind you from the truth... 
through the prideful ... "it's not me, it's you, lenses...
 
There is a problem in desperate need of resolution...
                             
I tried to tell you... begged Jesus on my knees to not send me with a message of correction , 
to one so much bigger than myself... someone to whom I looked up to...
 like a wide eyed child, in awe and wonder, of such great knowledge, like none I had ever come to know... 

Did you not feel the warmth of my love for you... For God ?

the deep respect I held for the great gift God had bestowed upon you...

 The eagerness with which I yearned to sit at your knee and soak up all you would teach me...

For these very reasons I am greatly pained as I write this message to you now...
  

That God given gift of knowledge that I thought I needed to learn;
 at the knee of one that I held in much too high a regard;

As it turns out all I needed ,
 was to trust in Jesus...

See, in Him , who  -IS -  
all knowledge, wisdom, grace and love; 
I had everything that I needed already...

When someone wields a sword in the name of God;

 it had better not be used like a weapon against one of His little lambs! 


Belittling others as a way of propping oneself up into a false sense of honor... 

 or worse,  God forbid;
 

Because God is not going to let His Little Ones be harmed , by the gracious gift,  He once bestowed upon another; 
instead , the gift itself just may be removed... 
or the grace it once held... 
certainly the blessing it came with...

I came; humbled , by the giver of grace itself... 
with a message larger than my station in life...
but I was cut down , ridiculed
 and His oh so gentle message of rebuke  ; rejected ...

oh my Beloved...

And His gracious heart assures me that it is not me, but Him , who has been rejected;
and my heart breaks anew for my Beloved...

The "gifted one", wielding knowledge as a sword , went straight to my heart...

But You oh Lord... 
You said to Me,
"Go child, and speak My words..."

and so I did, not by my strength , 
but Yours ...

and how I needed Yours my Beloved; as my knees shook and my hands trembled... 
and yet You moved me forward... reminding me with each scary step I took;

'Fear not, I am with you My child...
I will never leave you nor forsake you..."

and the word You kept locked in my little fretful heart;

"He who is in me is greater than he who is in the world..."

forward I marched, my little legs shaking, as I trusted in a God much stronger than myself...
but I am nothing Lord, why would anyone listen to one such as I ?

 and He reminded me that Moses had a speech problem that concerned him at being chosen for his task;
Jeremiah thought he was too young and inexperienced, for that which he was called;

Elijah felt suicidal when he thought no one was listening to the words of God;  and so on...( of the more well known examples )

When God almighty calls you to do something for Him, ready or not;
 you will move, fearfully at first, until confidence is built, through experience and learning to trust, which for me came by way of obedience due entirely to love,
 and finally into faith... 

For He stole my heart long ago 
with such merciful grace, a kind of loving tenderness that I had never before known, nor since have I beheld anything even resembling such graciousness...

... and the reaction to the delivering 
of His message broke my heart...

I'm so very sorry Lord, for Your words fell upon deaf ears... 

and I watched as my Beloved wept;
 tears of blood for the children He longed to help...

For the wounded hearts that would have to wait...
for the empty seats He desired to fill , in His house...
a house of worship devoted to the King of Kings, not us...

He who has ears to hear,
let him hear ! 
A wise man does not despise correction...
keep us humble Lord !


Even as I begged Him ,
to Not send me again... 
instead ; He gave me the job ... 

 






Jesus weeps for His children because He loves them with such great tenderness !
and when they hurt each other how much broader the swath of pain... 

"Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall in no wise enter therein..."

"For in as much as you have done,
 or have not done, to the least of these , you have done unto Me..."

If I have been received such as this; how shall my brothers and sisters be received..?

 Without love, all other gifts, tho they be holy and given from 
the God of heaven, come to nothing...






It is so sad to see these precious godly gifts, wasted, due to a lack of love...
and His house sits waiting to be filled...

"Love the Lord thy God with all your heart, all your mind and all your strength...and Love thy neighbor as thyself..."

These are not just mere requests, most especially to the servants called to preach and teach the gospel... they are commands of the most High God of all of creation...

And yet His most gracious offer of forgiveness awaits all repentant hearts... always...

Think not on how wise you are, for the moment that you do, the door to pride swings wide... 
I do not say this to eliminate good self esteem; but to put it in an appropriate light; there is a great difference between the two, and yet they are easily disguised as one another.  

If I speak ,
 oh Lord of my soul;
 let it be to bring You glory...
let my words be Your words ,
my thoughts  be Your thoughts...
let the beating of my heart be in unison with Yours my Beloved...
 for You have touched my lips with a burning coal, breathed holy fire down into my soul, and brought me from the door of death to everlasting life... 

I have given You my life ,to do all that is pleasing in Your sight  my Lord; 
though I am lowly ... I am Yours... 
and in You, all I ever need be... 


To You oh Lord, do I answer ...

It is Your face, my Beloved that I seek , to do Your good and perfect will...

I will not look to man for approval, nor shall I be overcome by any evil...

And I shall abide in the shadow of the Almighty, now and forevermore...

Whatever you do, do it in love, first of your God, then of your fellow man... 

"I discipline the children that I love..."


Thy will be done...

In the mighty and awesome name of Jesus Christ, savior of the world !
