Contentment

In Timothy, contentment is a huge common theme. Once you have reached a level of contentment putting expectations on people becomes less. You realize then, only God can meet your expectation in the form you are expecting it to be revealed. The word also reminds us how much of a fallen race we are and that man fail us daily. That’s something we forget to remember or apply to our hearts the moment, love seems to be showed indifferent to what we are use to.

The word also reminds us how we are crucified along with Christ. The crudifition is an agonizing thing, there is no way to avoid the pain but the verse reminds us that we are crucified with Christ. That being said, Christ is enduring it all with us and we are not alone during the processes. Also in Romans it’s mentioned how our spirit is willing but our flesh is weak. That is our constant battle as Christians, having to kill our personal desires for God will can prevail instead.

I feel like these 4 things are spoken in great detail in the Bible to protect our hearts. These are 4 very broad topics that seem to always mark us because we forget that no one can give you what God can. Humans fail us every time because every human has a constant battle between they spirit and flesh. Were meant to feel their failure toward us for we can remember the one who never does; God. The pain of human failure however is meant to be felt just like the crucifixion. Just how Christ endured the crucifixion we must endure it as well. We should channel the pain or hurt for a greater cause and not to victimize or justify, how we lack giving it all to God.

I think it’s hard for majority of us because God has put us in a position where the truth has been exposed and now we are called to break generational curses. We are rebuilding in our life a new foundation that no one prior really established or paved the way for us to follow in. So it’s a tiring thought having to give it our all to Christ because we feel like life already took so much from us. We enter in a state of wanting to receive because it feels like our whole existence has been just giving and no one is giving back. Then we need to get real with ourselves and ask how are we getting filled. We know pouring into others very well but getting filling we don’t. In order for us to get filled we must let our guard down and get vulnerable because intimacy could only be created when everything is exposed on the table with no reservation. If you lack contentment is because your life has lacked intimacy with the Lord.

Extending an olive branch 🕊

I won’t pretend that I understand or know the pain that you are holding within.

I won’t try to align our suffering to see if it’s rooted equally.

I won’t even try to comprehend to then sugar coat it with a beautiful bible phrase.

I won’t do nothing because I can’t…

But…

I will extend an olive branch.

I will extend an area where your allow to feel.

I will extend a space that no one will steal.

I will extend an arm and truly let you hold on.

I will extend my legs and walk miles with you or to where you are.

I will extend my heart and shelter what you lost grip of.

I will extend my mind and channel in everything your emotions left you blindside to.

I will do all this for I know this is where the gospel really steps into play.

But…

I’m only human, so I’m limit on how far I can get.

However I can intercede and provoke the dove to be set free.

That it may return with a new opportunity of reconciliation and restoration.

That it may return back with a sign that there will be life after this.

That it may return back with a sign that every seed that was drop has taken root and it’s just in a process of growing.

That it may return in hopes that a new direction will take place.

That it may return as a light, that all of this agony was just to fulfill a promise.

That it may return with a sign of a new covenant.

I pray that the dove comes back with an olive leaf in its beak.

I pray that the Holy Spirit will be poured out like how it happened to Jesus.

I pray that all of God’s children arise and take a stand.

I pray that the church sees this is something we need to take control of because politics can’t.

The legislation could put laws into place but the children of God can declare the blood of Jesus to go rushing into those stone hearts.

The legislation can present things in court but only God can put into place an order that no man can break.

The legislation can pretend to care but the Holy Spirit can bring conviction to every soul.

The legislation can try to fix all this mess but only God can cleanse the land and leave no trace of evidence.

The legislation can try everything but in the end it will still need God to step in.

There is a flood of anger, confusion, hurt, betrayal, abuse, injustice, sadness, depression, separation, division, numbness, grief, blood and tears flooding our atmosphere.

It’s been arising overtime.

But until the people don’t understand that we must take every step under the instructions of God, all things will continue to be wiped away.

From the roots things will be killed off and only those who obeyed will stick around to see a new place.

Let’s see pass the storm…

I hear and feel your trouble thoughts.

I know it must be difficult to turn off what has been influencing your emotions.

I understand that having proper facts and knowledge seems the best route to go.

I know the percentage of people asking “what should we do”, are higher than the “I might have a clue”.

I hear your moving lips and your silent ones.

I feel your struggle to go to bed every night because the “what if’s” are heavy on your soul.

I know you are trying to pray but finding the words have been hard.

I know your trying to smile through all of this, but yet have found comfort that your sad face is the common thread, everywhere you go.

I know things at home are getting tight.

I know it seems like each minute feels more like a miracle.

I know your strength is becoming weaker.

I know that we are walking under a huge cloud of mystery.

I know this is much bigger that me or you.

BUT ASIDE FROM ALL THIS I KNOW OUR GOD IS WITH US!

I know He promised that he will never abandon us.

He warned us that WE WILL PASS THROUGH AFFLICTIONS, but we must take heart.

He promised that ALL THINGS WILL WORK TOGETHER FOR OUR GOOD, even the parts we don’t understand.

I know He is our JEHOVAH RAPHA, OUR HEALER!

I know He is our JEHOVAH JIREH, OUR PROVIDER!

I know He is our JEHOVAH NISSI, OUR BANNER!

I know He is our EL SHADDAI, OUR GOD ALMIGHTY!

I know He is our ELOHIM, GOD OF POWER AND MIGHT!

I know He is our EL ROI, THE STRONG ONE THAT SEES!

I know He is our JEHOVAH SHAMMAH, OUR GOD IS HERE AND PRESENT.

THESE FACTS ARE THE PERMANENT ONES I KNOW, the other facts are temporary ones!

Things come and go.

Seasons are changing constantly.

News are changing constantly.

People are changing constantly.

Our hope is changing constantly.

Our strength is changing constantly.

Everything is constantly changing!

BUT MY LORD IS THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND TOMORROW!

Take courage and hold on, don’t you dare let go now!

OUR GOD IS A WAY MAKER!

HE’S ABOUT TO MAKE A WAY IN ALL THE AREAS MAN COULDN’T DO!

FOR IT’S NOT THROUGH OUR MIGHT OR STRENGTH BUT BY HIS SPIRIT, SAID THE LORD!

PUT YOUR PROPER ARMOR ON!

DON’T FORGET YOUR HELMET OF SALVATION!

DON’T FORGET YOUR BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS!

DON’T FORGET YOUR BELT OF TRUTH!

DON’T FORGET YOUR YOUR FEET PREPARED WITH THE GOSPEL OF PEACE!

DON’T FORGET YOUR SHIELD OF FAITH!

And DON’T FORGET YOUR SWORD OF THE SPIRIT!

Switch your “ I knows and what if’s “ to true facts that are unchangeable!

LET’S FINALLY SEE PASS THIS STORM !

What has love meant to you in the past and what does it mean to you now?

Watch what God does, and then you do it, like children who learn proper behavior from their parents. Ephesians 5:1 (The Message)

This week I began to question myself on, what love meant to me prior to this quarantine and what does it mean to me now. After some hard thinking it came down to two answers. Number one is that those that I love, I really love. How do I know this? The sense of need to see them during these social distance times. I have become accustomed to their presences. What does that have to do with love ? It helped me put into perspective that I truly enjoy having the people that I have in my life. It has helped me see that I will surely dread the day where I could no longer see them. It has help me care, love, enjoy, invest, and cherish them more deeper.

Now the second thing that popped up was, how distance I am from those I did see daily before all of this chaos. It’s horrible to admit because as a Christian you are called to be near and not far. Especially with those you saw daily. But and this is a big but …… if you can relate with me, I have some encouraging words to share. There is still time and you can fix what has been hindering you to reach out more. I know it might take some time and work. But that two things we have in this season, time and time to work with what God has called us to do!

We are born to follow in Jesus footsteps. Each one of us that are still alive and called to lean on God and his understanding. To seek wisdom from Him when we are lacking in this area. Jesus was neat to anyone who reached to him. He didn’t care what relationship they had prior. He was servicing everyone equally and that includes in relationships. I like to believe that Jesus was able to be his true self because he knew that he was called to serve while he was physically walking earth. There are many stories in the Bible where it wasn’t so easy for him to keep servicing but the only thing that came out of his mouth and into his mind was the will of his father.

What’s the point of loving those when they are easy to love ? Does that help us mature spiritually? Is there a bigger treasure to love those who seem impossible to love ? Are they impossible to love because they provoke us to grow in an area that we don’t want to face? Are they impossible to love because they remind you of all your past mistakes? Have you ever thought that maybe the demand to love your neighbor is written in the Bible because it’s very much possible to do ? If it helps, the next time you find it hard to love someone, remember that at one time in your life, you were difficult to love back ! If God could love us in every moment than we should love in every moment.

Love covers a multitude of sins!

“Who touched me?” Jesus asked.”

“Who touched me?” Jesus asked.”
How can it be that in a mist of a crowded place an act of desperation left you impacted.
Oh Lord you said my faith has healed me.
Look at my trembling self as I fall apart in your presence freely.
You see I hungered and thirst for your almighty power to flee this flood of blood.
It’s been years of me physically out pouring but…
Just a touch of the border of your mantle.
Every fragile piece of me untangled.
I fell.
I broke.
I weakened.
No longer drained.
No longer leaking.
No longer needing.
The power of your touch became my open door to healing.
Now you see Lord why I fell to your feet.
I was damaged.
I was ruined.
I was dying internally.
I ran through this crowd and secretly reached to you.
You didn’t see me but you felt power withdrew.
Immediately you had to ask who, yet you knew it was me who pursued.
A touch.
A miracle.
A move.
You said it was my faith.
I believe it was because you are my father.
For you knew me without knowing me and called me “daughter”.
I knew I had to run to where you were.
But you knew this act was the step that caused my agony to out run.

Now I walked under calmness.
Now I walk under joy.
Now I walk under a weightless self.
Now I know how true my father’s words were to me.
“Then he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace.”
Now I knew the peace I was under no longer had room for any other disease.

Vulnerability

For many years I was compare to glass.

So transparent but yet a soul that would easily crack.

Bulletproof use to be my type of frame, until love showed me I was still not safe.

I say love although I could debate, that at times it felt intoxicated than certain.

At times I smelled prison than freedom.

You never saw it physically but this was me internally.

Those that preached to me that being Christian was easy; lied to me.

I’m a witness that the trials came pouring, as soon as my lips proclaimed His glory.

It felt painful but with each step I got closer to my splendor.

The radiance of this King of kings and Lord of Lords; brighten all the cracks on me that had to be restored.

Restored?

A bit confusing when I thought saying I do to you, meant a clear slate.

Now I see I had more lines than a map that was draw on with no common sense.

I was thee purposeless map, to those that touch me and was comforted with being lost.

Now I’m told these lines have a purpose but was viewed completely wrong.

I was glass because many only gave me the option to be perfect.

Although they enjoyed my falls when they heard each cracking sound of my body hitting the surface.

Now I understand why I had to be a glass for those, who put the high standard on my soul.

For when I was not living for them, they had the ability of having all my flaws exposed.

Although when my lips muttered that night how broken hearted I was; love came full force and cause this glass to burst.

Now I’m no longer lines but broken pieces.

Billions of pieces that represented something I was missing.

My lips muttered again “fix me” under the hot shower.

I staged the scene by mistake and the Lord spoke to me in all the places that matter.

“I will fix you because you have surrendered, all the broken pieces that you couldn’t put together.

I will burn all that is not of me in you back to ashes.

It will hurt you but please hold on because the ending will magnify my purpose.”

Just like that, the seed that was planted in me was getting watered.

I was no longer in the shower but yet in my process.

Where hills and valleys will strengthen me.

Where I will come out unharmed.

“You see I am making all things new.

Which you will receive but first you must be processed.

For your eyes will finally see me and not your ears just hear me.

So whether your in the hills or the valley, you will find me.

I won’t be hiding but close to every reach out you do.

You see I love you profoundly and first but I want you to want me too.

Not just want me but place me first, for I know the future plans I have for you…”

I couldn’t help but to shout with all I had left;

Lord I will do whatever i must.

Where ever you send me, I will go.

Whatever I must speak, I will say.

Whatever I must believe, I will.

Whatever I need to do, I will do.

Just show me the directions that will lead me completely through.

“In order to be with me you must believe in me.

You must carry your cross.

You might wonder why you must carry again what I have already done for you.

The cross is not meant to torture or weigh you down but to remind you where you stand.

The son, the father, and the Holy Spirit.

Remember the next time you say your alone, that you are surround by a powerful stronghold.

You need to carry your cross because this walk requires vulnerability.

For everyone will see, including me.

That strong in me is a form of weakness to the flesh but strong in spirit.

That the weigh of this cross is for the chosen not to be blown when the wind blows.

But to stand firm, in posture on the word.

Hold on tight to every instrument I have given you to survive this trouble world.

That way, you will never forget what your called for.”

Victoria 💛
