Frustration

Turns out you can't turn around something
 that has been going downhill
and picking up speed
for 10 years.


You can try.


Go ahead and try.


And learn the definition of frustration
in all of its glory!

Such Love!

"And the LORD said to me, “Go again, love a woman who is loved by another man and is an adulteress, even as the LORD loves the children of Israel, though they turn to other gods and love cakes of raisins.”  Hosea 3:1


"How can I give you up, O Ephraim?
         How can I surrender you, O Israel?
         How can I make you like Admah?
         How can I treat you like Zeboiim?
         My heart is turned over within Me,
         All My compassions are kindled."  Hosea 11:8


“I will heal their backsliding,
I will love them freely,
For My anger has turned away from him."  Hosea 14:4


"Yes, I will rejoice over them to do them good, and I will assuredly plant them in this land, with all My heart and with all My soul.’"  Jer.  32:41





21 "But I had pity for mine holy name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the heathen, whither they went.22 Therefore say unto the house of Israel, thus saith the Lord God; I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for mine holy name's sake, which ye have profaned among the heathen, whither ye went.
23 And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the Lord, saith the Lord God, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.
24 For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.
25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.
26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
28 And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God."  Ezekiel 36:21-28



"whom heaven must receive until the period of restoration of all things about which God spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient time."  Acts 3:21


If only we will see the absolute, resolute, unchanging faithfulness of a covenant making God to Israel as proof of His absolute, resolute, unchanging faithfulness to the gentiles whom He mercifully grafts in to His chosen people.


Such Love!

True Love True Humilty

Only in His light do we see light.
Natural light, natural seeing, natural perception is all wrong.
Better to be a people in darkness, awaiting the dawning
of the True Light, than to be a people walking in the light
of their own sparks.

Up till now, I have not acted in True Love, with True Humility.

This journey, this moving toward a place of death to self, a place
where His light, His love, His humility rule and reign is completely
dependent on His faithfulness.

Every revealing of the falseness, the lies, the cover-up, the desperate
attempts to appear to have something I do not have...
Every revealing brought sorrow, but it should have
brought joy.
Rightly understood the uncovering of the lie is the death of the lie.
And then truth can begin to arise.

I am not, but I AM is!
