Following the shining water through the hills and highways of Heaven to find the green throne of God.
We have all experienced getting up in the morning, finding that rare perfect morning. God is in His Heaven and all is right in our world.
Imagine how the earth appeared to Jesus the first Easter morning. His sacrifice complete. Knowing all the Life ahead of Jesus. Picturing His Father running to Him.
What Jesus has brought our new earth:
Revelation 3:5-8The one who conquers will be clothed thus in white garments, and I will never blot his name out of the book of life. I will confess his name before my Father and before his angels.
Consider praying with your mind completely open to what God would say to you. Usually when this request falls on me, I draw a blank. And today I started to do that again. Except this time I felt very peaceful. So very peaceful - I tried to remember peace connected to a peaceful time - 2014. And I thought of a very rainy spring day. Looking out was so very, very beautifully green after an unusually grey and overcast winter. The incredible green, the gentle and persistent rain blessing us all. Watering Father God's earth lushly and abundantly. All of our family was home. All were quiet and occupied with something, all were almost humming they were so happy and at peace.
A friend of ours was once on an oil rig outside of Norway. He said he was so very, very cold. He tried all methods to warm up and finally he decided he needed a shower to be warm. And finally he was warm to his depths. In his prayer life, his very faithful prayer life, he told people - when you have done all you know to please God. When you are weary. Or when you have tried all your opportunities. And you need to be lifted up. Sit and be as earnest as possible to Father God. Completely open. And let God soak you with His Love. Let Jesus love you. Be nourished, be washed, be soaked. The Love of Jesus streaming down. Renewal. Replenish. Loved.
The Spirit of God over the waters
the God of heaven,
the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments
a prayer to the God of my life -
8 By day the LORD directs his love, at night his song is with me
God of Justice
The God of peace be with you all. Amen.
2 Corinthians 1:3
The Father of compassion and the
God of all comfort
2 Corinthians 13:11
The God of love and peace will be with you
I keep asking that
the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father,
may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.
1 Peter 5:10
God of all grace
Abba, Beloved Father of all,
Bless Tom for his completion of the joys and work you provided him - he has been faithful.
Bless his companions, seeking the will of God working the cause of the Gospel. Their names are also in the Book of Life.
This blessing of his loved ones, they will be dressed in white. Jesus will acknowledge them as the Beloved of Father God, naming them before our Father and His angels. Ephesians 3 calls these families in Heaven.
Their names are in the Book of Life, Jesus, who takes away the sin of the world. Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing! Jesus our God is worthy. Jesus has washed the feet of sinners with Love. He opens and unties the Word of God. He opens the Book of Life forevermore.
Father God, You provided a cloud by day and pillar of fire by night. You declare Your steadfast love in the morning, and your faithfulness by night, in this amazing peace - we offer - lifting up our faith. Lifting up our cares. To You, Abba, in our wonderful Jesus Christ, trusting our cares, lives, thanksgivings of health, expectations of Your Love and Joy - our Loved ones. Those who make life meaningful in the riches of Your Holy Spirit. And will know all Christians carry their prayers to Jesus and we unite the Lights shining in us as Lights of God, giving the earth of God's expectation of Eternal Love.
In these miracles, we trust all to You. In Jesus. Amen.
