All That Matters Is…..You Are LOVED

Standard

I must be honest here, the LORD has ministered to me, on multiple occasions with music. Anybody else? Please share if HE has because HIS goodness and faithfulness brings HOPE to those that DO NOT HAVE HOPE!! I remember about 4 1/2 years ago when HIS Word being sung to me and by me over and over were the only things that got me through the day… But God is good and HIS promises of Jeremiah 29:11 are true and stand FIRM..

290a0a8a930b6adb3c0a38772ab677ed This world has heartache and we do walk through some of it during our time here on earth.  But that doesn’t define US.. Not in the least.  Don’t let anyone LIE to you and tell you that you are depressed, you are messed up, you are too broken to be made whole again.. All that is LIES!! Lies to steal away our true IDENTITY..  What is your identity?  Has anyone ever told you?  Have they explained that you are a son or daughter of the KING OF KINGS?  That you are a royal people?  That your Abba Father in Heaven is love and HE created you to LOVE YOU.  John 1:12 is beautiful.. “Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believe in His name, He gave the right to become children of God – ” 1 Peter 2:9 speaks of our position in the kingdom.. “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of the darkness into His wonderful light.”  Romans 6:6 speaks of our freedom.. “For we know that our old self was crucified with Him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin.”  Absolute amazing Words that bring life to our souls.

So lately the Lord has been ministering to me through Colton Dixon’s latest song, All that Matters.  I wake up hearing this song and I want to hear the truths spoken in it over and over.  My spirit testifies with my Christian brother’s Words of praises and worship to our GOD.  If you haven’t heard it I highly recommend you downloaded it from iTunes.  So here are the words:

[Verse 1]
I’ve tasted hopelessness
I know what heartache is
But somehow through all of it
Your love remains
I’ve lived through brokenness
Feeling faceless
I’m not anonymous
You know my name

[Pre-Chorus]
Your word is
A light unto my feet

Your love is
My identity

[Chorus]
All that matters
Is you make all things new
There’s no disaster
That You cannot undo
This world will fade, and life will change
All of this is true
But all that matters
Is that I matter to You

[Verse 2]
You’ve counted every breath
Each hair upon my head
You know exactly who I am
And will always
So I stand with confidence
On all your promises
Your love is evidence
You know my name

[Chorus]
All that matters
Is you make all things new
There’s no disaster
That you cannot undo
This world will fade, and life will change
All of this is true
But all that matters
Is that I matter, yeah

[Bridge]
All that matters is your love will never fade
All that matters is you’re for me for always
All that matters is your love will never fade
All that matters is you’re for me for always

[Pre-Chorus]
Your word is
A light unto my feet
Your love is
My identity

[Chorus]
All that matters
(All that matters)
Is you make all things new
There’s no disaster
(No disaster)
That you cannot undo
This world will fade, and life will change
All of this is true
But all that matters
Is that I matter to you

[Outro]
All that matters
Yeah
All that matters is your love will never fade
All that matters is you’re for me for always
All that matters is your love will never fade
All that matters is you’re for me for always

IMG_6094Psalm 119:05 says “Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.”  Our true identity is HIS love, because He loved us first.  When we are dirty, when we are filthy with sin, when we are in the mist of it.. Jesus walks into that mess to PULL US OUT and offers us FREEDOM.  I just started reading Without Rival by Lisa Bevere and was struck by a sentence she wrote in it.  She says “Knowing who you are is vastly more important than knowing where you are or even what you can do.  Because He is your Creator, God has quite a bit to say to you about who you are.  And who you truly are carries within it the revelation of what you could be.”  L-e-t  t-h-a-t  s-i-n-k  i-n!!  So loved ones, go find out Who your Heavenly Father is because He will reveal to You who you are in Him!! And trust me YOU ARE LOVED.. Like Colton says, “All that matters is that I matter to You” and He is for You and Me always!

Blessings Beloved!

What Happens In Times of Trouble?

Standard

51087053641__779904B4-795C-40C9-8B40-A3ABC7128992

Our family has had an interesting couple of weeks to say the least.  My MIL, whom I sometimes do Facebook #LiveStreams with, because she is so cute, fell.  Her fall WAS NOT just a normal fall.  Because she has dementia and has had it for about 6 years (each year progressing more and more) she does NOT have normal reflexes. When she falls, the falls are bad because she doesn’t put her hands out like you or I would.  So this fall was completely absorbed by her left shoulder and left side of her head!  Ouch!!

So one hour before I am set to go to a concert that I had been looking forward for a couple of weeks I get a call from my husband super upset telling me what the doctors had told him.. His mom had two holes on the top of her head and needed to be air lifted to the hospital in Tampa because it specialized in trauma and was better equipped to treat her.  They knew she would need to have surgery in her brain to either relieve the blood already there or operate to STOP any further bleeding.  Needless to say, I left work and rushed to meet my husband, son and father in law at the hospital.  As I was traveling to the hospital I was in prayer for my mother in law.  Even though I don’t remember the exact words I prayed, I remember saying, “God, the doctors say one think but You have the final word God and You are the best physician.”

Upon arrival at the hospital we had to wait for the staff make sure that she could be seen and for the nurse to come and take us to her since she was in the trauma unit.  As you can imagine, all this was extremely stressful for all of us!! But I did notice something remarkable.. What is the word I am looking for?  A remarkable peace in me, one that I have not had before in these types of situations.  You know the ones where someone you love is hurting or hurt and there is absolutely nothing you can do!!  I have been here before and I would just completely freak out!! But not today?  Today I had peace and I decided that I was going to turn to my Heavenly Father FIRST.  I was going to remain in that space, that place of PEACE.  It is truly a remarkable place because I was able to just sit there and OBSERVE everyone else and focus on what the nurses (primarily ) at this point where saying.  As I watched my family, I could see the stress, the fear of the unknown.  I looked at my father in law and seriously thought he was about to be admitted himself from the sheer look of worry and stress on his face!! I remember just waiting and praying and waiting and listening to the promptings of the Holy Spirit.

Just then the nurse came in and as she updated us on what was happening, we watched her, eagerly awaiting Some Good News!   But that never came, she proceeded to tell us that my MIL would need not one but two surgeries and that as an older dementia patient, the anesthesia would NOT be good for her because of her dementia.  The head surgery was also NOT a good thing because it can speed up her dementia.  So there we where waiting for the neurosurgeon to come and tell us the bad news!  Just then I felt prompted to pray for my MIL with my whole family.  And that is exactly what we did!  We prayed a fervent prayer trusting that God would heal her head and she Would NOT need surgery in her head!  We prayed for healing to come in the Name of Jesus.  We prayed that HE is the ultimate physician and could heal her and it didn’t matter what anyone else had said before then.  Could God do a miracle for her?  Would HE?

Well my friends I am here to share with you that HE indeed did do a miracle that Thursday night right before our eyes!  She went from needing two surgeries because she also shattered her humerus bone to not needing the neurosurgeon to operate on her head NOR needing shoulder surgery as they said that her bone could heal on its own.  I don’t know about you but during times of trouble I made a choice.  I choose to go to my Heavenly Father in prayer.  To sit still and listen to what He has to say and to believe that I have a BIG, BIG GOD THAT ANSWERS PRAYERS AND DOES MIRACLES!!

PS My MIL is currently in rehab and we are praying for a complete recovery so that she can come home soon and be with the ones that love her to pieces!  Thank you for letting me share with you the times and circumstances that increase my faith and trust in GOD!

Blessings Beloved!
