freedom so profound

I have been experiencing a great deal of new feelings lately, not sure of what is going on in my life. Now I know, I am experiencing freedom for the first time in my life. It is a great feeling. Freedom.

—————

 

As far as the eye can see,
As far as the heart and soul feel
A thunder roars inside,
The horizon is alive with fury
The sea shapes the earth
Deep shades of blue tint the horizon
Salt crystallizes my brow
There is a curse that breathes
As the tide draws away
Creating the shapes of the earth mesmerizing

I tuck in my jacket, huddle inside
Such a striking sound, airborne
Thunder roars in my ears, sounds or oceans
Airborne, breezes gather images
Feeling cold, I gather my jacket, tightly
I embrace my walk of freedom with every stride
Rain caresses my face, yet a fire burns inside
Free is the soul, free is the heart, once bound
So profound

In the dark of night

In the dark of night, sometimes I don’t know the way
God is there waiting for me, if I pray, tonight
I know He is there ready for me, waiting to listen
He sent, His Son to show us the way to the light
God has shown me the way, the way to live right
There are times when around me comes dark thoughts, dark fear
I call Jesus, I pray for help, I know he will hear me
Jesus shows me the way, to trust and faithPRAYER-SERIES
He is in my heart, I live now as I should
Live for Jesus, trust him, When you give up your ways
Of living in the darkness
See the Saviour, who saves us all

In Jesus name Amen

Abiding in Him.

Thoughts sometimes come to my mind
Sometime my mind is covered in pictures
Today my thoughts have changed to that of Jesus
Jesus flocked by children, the little lambs of God
And one lying in his arms, searching Jesus’s eyes
A child knowing he is secure in Jesus’s arms

I have been weary of late, my heart and soul
Weary of thoughts, my ills had caught up with me
My Spirit longed for the goals I set, myself
My yearning, with every fibre of my body
Leans on Jesus’s body, Oh! to be that child again
Lying on Jesus’s lap, to forget my fears
To forget the tears I shed, and swiftly fall into a peaceful sleep

Life is not always so, sometimes we fall
Our earthly being, is always searching
For something more, to fill our heart
But now I feel differently, I feel Jesus in my heart
He is my Saviour, and my faithful one.
He knows my sins of the past, He forgave me
Today He sees me just as I am
With compassion in his heart not judging me
Yet when I am weak, and sinful
I talk to Jesus and ask for forgiveness
Jesus was like us once, He walked the earth
He understands our troubles, and through love
He guides us through our troubles
Abiding in Him.

In Jesus name Amen

Healing time

Australia we healed together

———————-

Where the mountains are blue, glistening with gems,
Home is where the mountains talk to me, feel the heart of the mountains
Let the rivers run down below the tall gums, so striking and tall
There is wisdom in the land, there is soul in this land
Older than time itself, so much to know and learn
Try to understand this land, find the healing time
Across the wide brown land, covered in wattle

You’ve heard my voice, You’ve felt my tears
For so many years, when I cried,you cried,
You’ve laughed, you’ve sung, cheers to my joy
The pain of my tears, were swept away, as I,
Learned to walk with you, you healed as I healed

Your tune, marched me through the darker days
I walked a line, towards the mountains, towards the sky
Finding my way, where the mountains talk and the river runs free
Wisdom and soul, flows through my heart in this land
Yet I am not afraid, I am not alone
You brought me back to the mountains, where the blue reaches the sky

Where the mountains are blue, glistening with gems,
Home is where the mountains talk to me, feel the heart of the mountains
Let the rivers run down below the tall gums, so striking and tall
There is wisdom in the land, there is soul in this land
The sun rises above this land, that no-one can understand
A sun golden and pure, rebirths each days
In this healing time of nature and me

You’ve heard my voice, You’ve felt my tears
For so many years, when I cried, you cried,
You’ve laughed, you’ve sung, cheers to my joy
The pain of my tears, were swept away, as I,
Learned to walk with you, you healed as I healed

We turn to YOU

Isaiah 30:21

 

And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, This is the way, walk you in it, when you turn to the right hand, and when you turn to the left.

 
We turn to YOU, God, we grab YOUR hand
To feel YOUR confidence in YOUR hands
As YOU shower us with praise and confidence
YOU are willing to listen to everyone
Take on all the worries of everyone
YOU have shown me, how to be still, and listen
Taking away my worries, building my strength
Praise the Lord, and SHOUT out his name
I have been emotional these past few weeks
At times, Lord, YOU know emotionally distant from all
My nerves have been on edge
YOUR kindness has restored me to myself
YOUR hope for me now restores my peace of mind
Your intercession in my life lifted my SPIRITS
I hear YOUR words, “PEACE”
Let everyone’s heart not be troubled
Let everyone’s heart not be afraid
Pray that our nervous anxieties
Our emotional turmoil be at PEACE
And that we all may know YOUR peace
YOUR place of REST

In Jesus name may we be at peace, strength, confidence
And shout out to the Lord, YOUR prayers of thanks
AMEN

Psalm 25:9
He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way.

Proverbs 3:6
in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

Isaiah 29:24
Those who are wayward in spirit will gain understanding; those who complain will accept instruction.”

As I begin my day God

As I begin my day God
My thought are with YOU
My thoughts of how YOU have changed my life
My thoughts on how YOU have affected many
Working in their lives, each day

Without them knowing, YOU are there

As I wake, I hear YOU listening about me
Listening to my dreams, my hopes
My joy in the relaxation I am creating with YOU
My SPIRIT was down for a while
You revived my SPIRIT
Lord, please be with us all
We cry out to YOU in JOY, and sometimes sadness
Please be with us all today

As I relax my mind with YOU today
Keeping YOU in my thoughts
Praying for my friends that need YOU
To feel YOUR presence beside me
Supporting those that need YOU

My prayer reaches far to the corners of the Earth
Dear, Lord, lift my SPIRITS, light the lights of many
Please make the lights of YOUR kingdom shine
For all those to see, YOU are with them in their time of need
Share YOUR praises with all

As I wake today, into YOUR world, I see a world
Unlike any other day, but YOU GOD make it special
Your GRACE has fallen deep inside my soul
Growing everyday, it’s taken me a while to understand
What YOUR GRACE meant
We hardly know or understand it fully

YOU have promised to be with me as I have promised to be with YOU
YOU are guiding me on my JOURNEY, You are my companion
YOU have shown me how to live, how to trust again
YOUR influences in my life has changed me
YOUR influences in my life has given me a purpose

My mission today is to grow
Share YOUR word with many
The bond of connection with GOD
Created me in a new world
Trust GOD wherever we are
That Trust can never fade
GOD is there for us all

Just knock on the door of God
And HE with find you

In Jesus name today and always Amen

Psalm 95:7

My morning

Dear God,
I am starting my morning now till I go into to hospital
With prayer, You have been hearing my messages
All year, you have been hearing my thoughts, my dreams

My inner most, soul

You have shown me Your Love and companionship
How you companionship extends to al is amazing
Your friendship enables me to talk openly about life
You opened, Your home of worship to me
A stranger in Your midst, You shared Your home freely with me
Many who seek comfort in your home, showers me
With glorious fellowship, showing me love, and trust
On equal footing with many, without favourism
Many strangers that have crossed my path
Teaches me friendship in another world
Dear God, You have showed me the way
In a new world
In Jesus name Amen

Praise God

Dear Lord, I write to you this morning
I praise you for your guidance
I have repented my sins, just as I am sorry for my sins
Please forgive me, for my sins, of the past
In your name Jesus
I forgive all others, for what they have done against me
Over the years life has been hard, I rebuke Satan from my mind
All the evil from my mind, and all the confusion
To you Lord, I am forever grateful, Lord Jesus
I am still amazed at Your strength, how you have saved me this year
I felt as thought I was truly going down, In the depths of despair
You have placed your healing hand upon my shoulder
Now as you change me Lord Jesus, please strengthen my body, my spirit, my soul

I praise you Lord Jesus, I shall follow you
I thank you Lord Jesus for the gifts you have given me
Your life has filled me with the Holy Spirit

You have been my strength of peace, guiding me

In your name Jesus Amen

Emotional healing with God

I first went to a healing meeting and found it so reassuring, that I can actually healing with God’s Help. Emotional healing is something I needed at the time and still do. There are many of us that are wounded emotionally and many that won’t admit it either There are many variation of emotional brokenness and pain, as many as there are different types of people. There are causes behind emotional pain and brokenness, mine was from many different types of abuse, some experience it from another’s sin, or different aspects of life in general. In life we all experience some form of emotional battle.
Emotional harm comes from sleeplessness, depression, anger, anxiety, fear,, broken trust,, chronic pain, illness, meaninglessness life. Today modern lifestyles are a melting pot for emotional destruction. As we draw away from the community and rely on yourself for support, you move away from trust worthy behaviour and towards selfishness away from the morals that give our life purpose. I know I shut myself of from the world, not trusting anyone, I had been hurt so much life had affected my physical health as well as mentally. I have had to battle my way to the surface, slowly clawing my way back to real life. There is no quick and easy fix to emotional healing, it takes a long time.. It is not just accepting Jesus in your life, following God’s walk is the first step to emotional healing. He is the one who restores our soul, it is a healing process and we must remember that. It involves choices to trust and obey God. Healthy interaction with others is important.
At the group I went to we did a bible study and meditation on God’s word, prayer for people in need. Taking control of our thoughts, letting the Holy Spirit come into our life and captivating our thoughts.. I knew I would not go back into the old ways of my world. It is important to stay on the path of God’s word. I needed also to forgive those who have hurt me and in turn I have found I can be kind and compassionate towards those that have hurt me. God forgave me my sin and accepted me back into his fold. Today I need to see myself as God see me. I am involved in Bible study, I wish to learn as much as I can about God the Father and Jesus, plus teaching myself at home.
Jesus has helped me find emotional healing, as I admitted I still need more. His spirit and spirit of kindness will eventually win through. Helping us all heal emotionally. To be able to find peace in this world has been a rewarding experience, I am still searching but I know I will succeed.

Learning about the Apostle Peter

I am writing this from unfamiliar ground tonight, I have been thinking all afternoon about the sermon given today by our newly ordained minister. She gave a gentle but poignant sermon on the life of Peter the apostle.
Showing pictures and talking about life, in general from a fisherman to a cattleman in the outback of Australia.
Peter had been given a second chance at life by Jesus, most of us around the world can count the amount of chances we have at life on our hand. Most of you know the story of my life and the second chance I have had to make a go of my life.
I know I am not a leader like Peter, but in some ways I maybe, I have taken a chance on putting my story out there for people to read in hope that it may help someone. People know my faults but for some reason the people I have met have seen there is something about me. I know I have turned my life around full circle, I like the fact that there is still some silent healing that I do for myself in prayer to God at home. But in some ways I have to open the door a little bit more.
As the story goes, Peter met Jesus of Nazareth and it changed everything. Something out of the ordinary happened to me, I walked into a church, looking for something, I did not know what; something captivated me. I thought, “Is there something to church?” I went back again and again and eventually Baptised again, for myself. I was Baptised before as a baby, that did not mean anything after a lifetime of emptiness.


As Peter realised, Jesus was holding a hand out to him, so he could follow, as my faith has grown and I began to follow, more and more. I am not writing this to dust the tickets of my shoulders, or to get a big head, I just know that no matter what we go through in life we do get a second chance at life.
When I first walked into church I knew I was sinking, I did not know where to turn to solve my dilemmas of life. Everyone has to take the first step to creating a second chance at life and this was mine.
Peter the Apostle was a very human like us all, as humans we all make mistakes and I searched to find Peter did make mistakes as well. Sometimes still I am unsure of the church and puzzled by the human reaction to church. I may make the mistake of not talking about how my faith has grown, with people I know; I am the only one in my family that has found faith and grown to know that there is more too God the Father and Jesus. They have shown me that I am now capable of Love, Loyalty, something that I did not understand about life. I do know that I am still at fault of being hasty, but not as bad as I once was.
I am glad that I have search further into the understanding of Peter the Apostle, just knowing there are people throughout history, even as far back as biblical times that show us we can all take a step towards and new beginning of life.
For many years I denied there was a God or even Jesus, it was always pushed down my throat, there were faults in the bible. Then there were the atheist in my life that was strong and toxic. I now know better.
Today I felt honoured to listen to today’s sermon; I was 59 when I first walked into a church for the first time since I married. So my journey is still very new

Luke 5:6-8

6 And this time their nets were so full of fish they began to tear! 7 A shout for help brought their partners in the other boat, and soon both boats were filled with fish and on the verge of sinking.

8 When Simon Peter realized what had happened, he fell to his knees before Jesus and said, “Oh, Lord, please leave me—I’m too much of a sinner to be around you.”
