Pain Can Have a Purpose

Are you a Mother?

Then you have given birth.

Remember labor?

Yeah, it’s called “labor” for a reason. I have had four children, some natural, and some by c-section. Either way, it hurt. It was painful. There were times I did not know if I or the baby would make it. Yet we endure. We keep pushing. Because there is a baby coming. Something new is being born. A baby is coming!

May I be so bold as to say this happens not only in the Natural, but in the Spiritual as well. There are new things being born, new babies coming, and God is using you to birth it. It may hurt, you may not like it, it will be uncomfortable. Yet, I can tell you with assurance,  It is worth it! Do not give up, do not give in, there is a baby coming! A new life is being born, into the Kingdom of God.

Do not lose hope, God knows what He is doing. And He still loves you – even when you said “that”. He knows we say a lot of things we don’t mean when we are in labor.  Ask Him yourself, He forgives you. He knows pain too.

GOD’S PROMISE TO YOU

A woman, when she gives birth to a child, has grief (anguish, agony) because her time has come. But when she has delivered the child, she no longer remembers her pain (trouble, anguish) because she is so glad that a man (a child, a human being) has been born into the world.  (John 16:21 AMP)

*

Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. (Isaiah 43:19 AMP)

*

Hear, O Lord, have mercy and be gracious to me! O Lord, be my helper!

You have turned my mourning into dancing for me; You have put off my sackcloth and girded me with gladness,

To the end that my tongue and my heart and everything glorious within me may sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever. (Psalm 30:10-12 AMP)

MY PRAYER FOR YOU:

Dear Lord,

Thank you, you, for using us to birth new things into your Kingdom.  Calm our spirits, despite the pain. Help us to remember that this pain has a purpose, and something new will be born into our lives, in Jesus Name.

Raindrops Are Tears

RAINDROPS
©2013 Diana Rasmussen

There are tears
my heart can’t hold
falling down soaking the ground

Water from my soul
releasing pain
My cry to begin again

From a secret place
I see your face
Your raindrops are tears
Sent from above
pouring out grace and love
Your raindrops are tears

Drench my hurt
flood over my pain
You call me by a new name

Soaking the trees
healing all things
that are precious to a King

From a secret place
I see your face
Your raindrops are tears
Sent from above
pouring out grace and love
Your raindrops are tears

You wept when I wept
You cried when I cried

From a secret place
I see your face
Your raindrops are tears
Sent from above
pouring out grace and love
Your raindrops are tears

Ghosts From a Dream

Ghosts From A Dream

Old Buried feelings
holding hidden meanings
Up out of the grave
Trying to enslave
*
Ghosts from a dream
with silent screams
*
Painful memories
Negative energy
Burial chambers
Echo things unseen
*
Ghosts from a dream
with silent screams
*
Brought out of the night
Into the broad daylight
Whatever was covered
will be discovered
*
Ghosts from a dream
with silent screams
*
What’s said in darkness
Will be heard in the light
The Ghosts from a Dream
Dissolve with their schemes

Time to Dance!

 Time to Dance!

Hope-is-the-ability-to

I came across this saying on Twitter this morning and it spoke to me.  (Thank you Green Light Lady aka Wendy!)  See I started my Physical Therapy this week, and let’s just say it did not go well, and I have more work to do in order to walk without limping.  Guess I should have had PT 1 1/2 years ago. Not such a bad thing, but not what I expected.  So, for today, I am listening to good music, reading the Word, and like my husband says, SPEAK THE WORD! This is the WORD he game me this morning to meditate upon:

 And if the Spirit of Him Who raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, [then] He Who raised up Christ Jesus from the dead will also restore to life your mortal (short-lived, perishable) bodies through His Spirit Who dwells in you. (Romans 8:11 AMP)

I’ve heard it said that we have to exercise our Faith Muscles just like we exercise our bodies. So, I will do my PT ankle exercises and exercise my Faith Muscles too.  When things look impossible from man’s point of view – that’s just the recipe for a miracle – all things are possible with God!

It was reported to King David that God had prospered Obed-Edom and his entire household because of the Chest of God. So David thought, “I’ll get that blessing for myself,” and went and brought up the Chest of God from the house of Obed-Edom to the City of David, celebrating extravagantly all the way, with frequent sacrifices of choice bulls. David,ceremonially dressed in priest’s linen, danced with great abandon before God. The whole country was with him as he accompanied the Chest of God with shouts and trumpet blasts. But as the Chest of God came into the City of David, Michal, Saul’s daughter, happened to be looking out a window. When she saw King David leaping and dancing before God, her heart filled with scorn.  (2 Samuel 6:12-16 MSG)

My Prayer For You:

Dear Lord,

Let us focus today on You, Your Word, Your Promises.  Let us listen for the melody of the future and dance to it today! And thank you Lord, that we don’t have to wait for the “Mical’s” approval; we are gonna rejoice in you with reckless abandon, despite what anyone says or thinks, in Jesus Name!
