You Called My Name

It has been three years since I wrote or recorded a new song. Not sure why. Guess I just got stuck there for a while. Just working, living life, whatever. You know, life is what happens when you have other plans, lol! Anyway, the dam has burst open, and those living waters are flowing again! Here is. My latest song. Chords and melody yet to be determined. Might change it, you know, it’s a work in progress – just like me.

“Can a woman forget her nursing child, And not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surely they may forget, Yet I will not forget you. See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands; Your walls are continually before Me.” – Isaiah 49:15-16 NKJV

You Called My Name

-Copyright 2018 Diana Rasmussen-

You call me out of darkness, Into your marvelous light

Created to reflect your glory, holy, blessed and bright

You call me free and forgiven, I hear the falling chains

I thought I was dead, but now walk out of my grave

The moment you called my name

I see it on your palms engraved

My heart will never be the same since

The moment you called my name

Your anointing breaks the yoke, I’m no longer a slave to sin

With the weight of your Glory, spirit and freedom reigns

I’m not bound to this world or it’s troubles

You call me Chosen, Beloved, my King of all Kings

The moment you called my name

I see it on your palms engraved

My heart will never be the same since

The moment you called my name

You stand by my side, call me your child

Heal my heart hurts, wash off my dirt

Blessed by your Name, My life’s in Your hands

The moment you called my name

I see it on your palms engraved

My heart will never be the same since

The moment you called my name

Doors of Opportunity are Opening for You

There is an appointed time for you. You are here, now, in this place because God has decided these are the times and places where you would live and carry His light into the darkness. There are doors of opportunity opening for you.chosen

Don’t look back, look up. God is calling you to arise and walk forward with Him. He has gone ahead of you and prepared the way. He is the Way. He will give you His dreams and visions for you as you seek His wisdom. He will meet you in the morning and walk with you through the day. He will be the last one you talk to before you sleep. He will watch over you in the night. He will never leave nor forsake you.

Opportunites are opening for you. There are open doors are all around you. Ask the Lord which one to walk through. He has a greater vision for you. He has a better plan than right here right now. This is not all that there is. There is more, greater vision, greater territories and greater revelation are coming.

What God has ordained no man can stop. You have been appointed. You have been commissioned. You have been given the authority to bring Heaven to Earth. You will see the miraculous. The blind will see, the lame will walk, the deaf will hear, the dead will rise. You were born for such a time as this. God will do amazing things – through you!

Arise my love…new opportunities await you!

before you

“No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And their righteousness is from Me,”
Says the Lord. – Isaiah 54:17 NKJV

Leave your captivity. Jesus has redeemed you by the blood of the Lamb. You are holy, you are righteous, you are free.  This world cannot hold you. You are a citizen of Heaven passing through this world, spreading God’s love and light.

leave captivity

For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,  who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself. – Phillipinas 3:20-21

“Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving;  meanwhile praying also for us, that God would open to us a door for the word, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in chains,  that I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.

Walk in wisdom toward those who are outside, redeeming the time.  Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one.” – Colossians 4:2-6 NKJV

You Are Not an Accident

Did you ever feel like an accident?

Did you ever feel like life is some cruel joke?

Did you ever feel like God made a mistake?

Those are lies from the enemy to discourage you. I know, I listened to the wrong guy for years. Yeah, in the natural and the spiritual, lol! It’s funny how when the enemy wants to discourage you he will send a critic. You know – that person who has nothing good to say about you.  The person who finds fault with everything you do or ever did. Guess what? He’s lying!  God didn’t say that about you. He says something completely opporist.

I can’t tell you what freedom I felt when I finally didn’t have to believe what everyone else said about me. He who the Son sets free is free indeed!

Here is what God really thinks of you. It was news to me too!

Psalm 139:13

Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out; you formed me in my mother’s womb. I thank you, High God—you’re breathtaking! Body and soul, I am marvelously made! I worship in adoration—what a creation! You know me inside and out, you know every bone in my body; You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something. Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before you, The days of my life all prepared before I’d even lived one day. 



Isaiah 43:1 1-4

But now, God’s Message, the God who made you in the first place, Jacob, the One who got you started, Israel: “Don’t be afraid, I’ve redeemed you. I’ve called your name. You’re mine. When you’re in over your head, I’ll be there with you. When you’re in rough waters, you will not go down. When you’re between a rock and a hard place, it won’t be a dead end— Because I am God, your personal God, The Holy of Israel, your Savior. I paid a huge price for you: all of Egypt, with rich Cush and Seba thrown in! That’s how much you mean to me! That’s how much I love you! I’d sell off the whole world to get you back, trade the creation just for you. 

 

chosen

John 15:16

“You didn’t choose me, remember; I chose you, and put you in the world to bear fruit, fruit that won’t spoil. As fruit bearers, whatever you ask the Father in relation to me, he gives you.”

You are NOT an accident. You are NOT a mistake. The Maker of the Universe has chosen YOU! He who made everything thinks you are special – the apple of His eye. He has great plans for you – good plans – plans for a great future, and not to harm you!

 

 Just Think,

You’re here not by chance, But by God’s choosing.

His hand formed you and made you the person you are.

He compares you to no one else— You are one of a kind.

You lack nothing that His grace can’t give you.

He has allowed you to be here at this time in history

To fulfill His special purpose for this generation.”

Chosen – Teen Bible Study

CHOSEN

(Click for downloadable lesson)

Do you remember gym class? I hated Gym.  Especially waiting to be chosen for a team.  The world is sometimes cruel with how to be chosen.  Whether it is at school, at work, or with a relationship being chosen makes us feel special.  It makes us feel wanted.

So, what’s the Good News?  God has chosen YOU for his family.  It happened even before you were born.  From the womb He called you and knew your name.

I started writing a Bible Study for our teen class at Church.  I think on Sunday’s I will share these with you.  Feel free to download and use.  God bless you!

 

Chosen

From http://godspeed247.ning.com/group/the-secret-garden-of-my-beloved

“For you are a holy people [set apart] to the Lord your God; and the Lord has chosen you to be a peculiar people to Himself, above all the nations on the earth.” (Deuteronomy 14:2)
The [Holy] Spirit and the bride (the church, the true Christians) say, Come! And let him who is listening say, Come! And let everyone come who is thirsty [who is painfully conscious of his need of those things by which the soul is refreshed, supported, and strengthened]; and whoever [earnestly] desires to do it, let him come, take, appropriate,and drink the water of Life without cost. (Revelation 22:17 AMP)
From Twitter Today @MaxLucado 
God will be the daddy your daddy was not. “I will be a father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters.” (II Cor. 6:18)

You are chosen, you are special, you are treasured, you are the Bride of Christ!
