A Safe Place to Fall

DEPENDENCY
C S Lewis: having to depend solely on God is what we all dread most.


From The Father's Heart

My child, your independent spirit sometimes gets in the way of My work.  Trust Me to work through you.  Dependency on Me is not a weakness but, rather, shows your willingness to obey and exchange your agenda for Mine.  I did not say, "God helps those who help themselves."  Rather, "God helps those who depend on Him."

A Grateful Response

If You depended solely on Your Father for strength, Lord Jesus, how much more do I need You?  When I try on my own, every effort fails.  When I depend on my own strength, I am too weak.  I desire to mirror You, Jesus. Thank You for modeling the Father.  I depend on You.

Simple Truth

Every believer needs to celebrate Declaration of Dependence Day, daily.

EMPATHY
My son is learning to count from 1 to 10. He counts everything from toys to trees. He counts things I tend to overlook, like the wildflowers on his way to school or the toes on my feet. My son is …
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted
and saves those who
are crushed in spirit.
Psalm 34:18


From The Father's Heart

My child, do you know that when you hurt, I hurt?  Pain is no stranger to Me.  I have been there, and I understand.  I'll walk with you through your fires, and I'll wipe away your tears.  When you cannot walk alone, I will carry you.  Lean on Me today.


A Grateful Response

It is You, Lord, who heals my broken heart.  You stand nearby, ready to wrap loving arms around me when the hurt becomes too great to bear.  When my dreams are crushed, You, not time, are the great healer.  You feel my hurts, Lord-even more than I do.

Simple Truth

There are no sorrows greater than our God can heal; there are no hurts deeper than He can feel.

AWESOMENESS
There is no God like our God

For who in the skies above
can compare with the Lord?
he is more awesome than all who surround him.
Psalm 89:6-7

From The Father's Heart
My child, are you struggling with the rigors of life's existence? Turn to Me. Is there a problem you don't understand?  Let Me help.  Look around My world.  Would someone who created the mysteries of the universe abandon you without a clue?  Your welfare is My business!

A Grateful Response

Scientists and archaeologists marvel at heaven and earth's mysteries.  All the genius of human inventions cannot compare to the creativity of Your hands.  The birth of an infant, the design of the snowflake, and the intricacy of the human body are all too marvelous to comprehend.  O God, You are awesome.

Simple Truth

The beauty of a golden sunset is God's "Amen" to a perfect day.

From The Father's Heart

My child, I know your lifeless condition apart from Me.  I've seen you at your worst.  Yet My heart yearns for your fellowship.  That's why I showed My mercy even when you didn't deserve it.  I pardoned your eternal prison sentence when you lived on death row.  I love you infinitely more than you are capable of loving Me.

Like the woman at the well or the beggar by the road, I am overwhelmed by Your mercy and goodness.  For giving Your love freely, for pardoning completely my selfish nature, for accepting me unconditionally long before I knew You-I thank You, Lord.

Simple Truth

We sometimes settle for drops of mercy when God wants to give us showers of blessing.

I AM
For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, "Do not fear; I will help you." Isaiah 41:13 Bible verse, scripture, Christian Inspiration quote.


From The Father's Heart
My child, who am I? Where did I come from?  Are you frustrated trying to explain My character and existence?  Before the world existed, I was.  Before you ever knew Me, I am.  Ad long after this world has passed away, I will still be.  I am more than a higher power or an explosion in the universe.  I am beyond your understanding; yet because of our relationship, I can fellowship with you.  I am that I am.

A Grateful Response

"Prove there is a God, some say.  But Lord, the evidence waits to be tested and experienced.  I see You in a thousand sunsets, and I commune with You daily in the garden of my heart.  By faith, You are and You were.  You always will be the great "I Am."

Simple Truth

He is the "I Am" And I am His.

We are the clay, you are the potter;
we are all the work of your hand.
Isaiah 64:8

From The Father's Heart

My child, did you know I designed the shape of your life?  The clay doesn't ask the potter, "Why did you make me this way?"  You may think your flaws and mistakes disqualify you for usefulness, but I control the potter's wheel.  I have chosen you for My glory.  Remember, broken vessels often reflect My beauty and light the most.





A Grateful Response





With firm but gently hands You take this lump of clay-my life-and form it into a vessel of beauty and honor.  When I refuse to lie still in Your skilled hands, You patiently remake me from the marred, broken pieces.  Thank You for creating me in Your image, Lord.



Simple Truth



If we are not content with who we are, then we are not content with who God is.

GREATNESS
Wow... Gods greatness!  He calls all the stars by name! He knows of everything and everyone!! AMEN!

Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise;
his greatness no one can fathom.
Psalm 145:3

From The Father's Heart


My child, there is nothing insignificant in your life.  I care about it all.  You may feel small in My presence because I am a God who moves beyond the finite mind.  But you are important to Me.  Your worship is sweet music to My ears that makes our relationship close.


A Grateful Response

Down through the ages men and women have tried to understand Your greatness.  Each generation searches for words to describe You, Lord. And even when I open my mouth to voice Your praise, I am speechless.  I stand in awe with all of creation and applaud You, God.  How great You are!

Simple Truth

When we are right with God, we are at home in His presence.

My child, when your heart is full of fear, run to Me.  Don't look anxiously about you, or live by "what ifs."  No matter where you are, or what you're doing, just speak the name of Jesus.  I will not always remove you from danger, but I am always right beside you, dispensing My angels wherever you go.  Those whom I love, I also protect.

A Grateful Response

Winter's blast has come at last, but in the chill of each new morning, Your warmth hovers near, Lord, to protect Your creation, both great and small.  Whatever the danger, wherever we go, You are a wall of protection, guarding every step we take.  In You I am safe, Lord.

in all the earth!
Psalm 8:1



From The Father's Heart

My child, My world is no mistake.  I designed every part of creation for your celebration and enjoyment.  With every breath and every stroke of My hand, I've painted you a picture of excellence.  I've given you My very best.  Why?  So you would recognize who I am wherever you go.

A Grateful Response

Who can describe Your beauty, Lord?  Who can praise You adequately?  Your work in the heavens and here on earth is without comparison.  Each minute detail is created perfectly with divine order.  All of creation cries out in unison, "You're the best, Lord."

Simple Truth
God is not capable of anything less than the best.

My child, I hear your cries for help.  I am never too busy to come.  I am only a prayer away.  Are you being chased by shadows of your past?  Are your circumstances robbing you of strength?  Come to Me.  I am your rock-solid shelter.  There you can rest, until your heart is strong enough to travel again.

A Grateful Response

You are the stabilizing force in my life, Lord.  I am but a pebble, but You are my rock, my hiding place in a world that is shaky and uncertain.  Blessed be the rock.  Your strength is awesome.

A Grateful Response

Jesus, You stand as a bridge, bringing me to the Father.  Your sacrifice ripped away the wall of separation and ushered me into God's presence.  Your death made possible my life.  The price You paid sealed my peace treaty with God.  We are no longer enemies but friends, Lord.

Simple Truth

Peace is not a feeling; it is a person.

At times, my eyes are blind to the dangers ahead.  Emotionally and physically exhausted, I look to you, my source, to guard me.  Like an ancient sentinel on guard for the enemy, You alert me from Your watchtower.  Your angels are before me, behind me, and beside me.

Simple Truth

The journey is not so hard when your eyes are on the Lord.

FORGIVENESS
How to Forgive When You Can’t Forget

"For I will forgive their wickedness
and will remember their sins no more."

From The Father's Heart

My child, of course I know your past.  Why do you wrestle with something that I so long ago forgave?  My death paid for your wrong actions and attitudes.  The "books" are now balanced.  I no longer hold you accountable for what you did in the past.  You are forgiven.  Now let Me fill those clean pages with a future that I have designed especially for you.  Hold your head up, but keep your heart bowed before Me.  Together, let's press on to the prize for which I have called you.

A Grateful Response

Lord, the past is gone, and I must leave it behind.  Although I remember my sins well, You have thrown them into the sea of forgetfulness.  You remember them no more; You refuse to hold me responsible for what You have forgiven.  If You forgive me so completely, can I do any less?

Simple Truth
God will never abandon a repentant heart.

" I am the good shepherd;
I know my sheep and my sheep know me."
John 10:14

From the Father's Heart

My child, you may think you know where the pastures are greener.  At times you may even try to sneak under the fence or walk another path.  But as your good shepherd, I know your name.  And I will never stop looking for you and calling you back.  You may not understand My reason for boundaries, but the gate is there to protect you.  I will feed you with nourishing food-not just for your body, but for your soul.  I will give you rest, refreshment, and joy for your journey.  Stay close, because I am all you need.

A Grateful Response

Wherever I go-up steep mountain paths, through the deep valleys and green pastures, or around still waters-You walk beside me, refreshing my spirit and restoring my soul.  If I stray, You pursue me until I can rest safely in Your arms again.  What a wonderful shepherd You are!

Simple Truth

You can't hear the shepherd's voice if you're always following the wrong sheep.

REFUGE

PSALM 57:1. God is my refuge:

God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
Psalm 46:1

From The Father's Heart

My child, sit down in the boat. Don't look at the billowing waves or the sea spewing its anger in all directions. I made the wind and the sea; they listen and obey My voice.  I walk on the clouds, and they thunder the their praise.  I blink My eyes, and lightning reflects My power.  I hold out My hand, and the storms are stilled.  So, take My hand, sit down, and relax.  Do you think the God who knows the number of hairs on your head will abandon you in your greatest hour of need? Be still, My child.  You are safe with Me.

A Grateful Response

When the storms rage around me, I can always run to You and rest, Lord.  In turbulent times, in trials and temptations, in weakness or in fear, You are my strength, and Your hiding place is secure.  Bless You, Lord, for being my refuge.

Simple Truth

If God does not rescue us immediately, it is only because He has a greater purpose in mind.  He will still give us peace in the center of our storms.

His compassions never fail.
They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
Lamentations 3:22-23


From The Father's Heart

My child, are you struggling with failure?  My compassion has no end.  While I will not compromise My plan for obedience, I am not deaf to your cries for help.  What you see as the point of no return, I see as the possibility of a new beginning.  I have no desire to destroy you or My dreams for you.  Like a father loves his child, I, too, love you.  Rest in Me daily, and let Me demonstrate My love and compassion to you.

A Grateful Response

No matter what I did yesterday, You stand before me each new morning with outstretched arms, inviting me to start over.  You see me not as I was, but as I am becoming.  Your compassion overwhelms me and draws me even closer to You, Lord.

Simple Truth

God's plan is never destruction, only restoration.

Isaiah 40:28

From The Father's Heart

My child, when your thoughts are filled with the ugliness of the world, remember it is not I who erased the beauty.  I splashed the parched ground with paint drops of color.  I nestled my creatures safely together like clustered jewels and carved out a home for each one.  Every day is a personalized tapestry of love from Me to you.  From the beginning, I planted My beauty in your heart so you could see life through My eyes.  Those who cannot acknowledge the glory of My creation will not recognize Me.

A Grateful Response

We can have hope because God is forever faithful. -Typography Theme -Different size options available -Frame not included -Instant download high resolution option:

As I look back over my life, Lord, I see the tracks of Your faithfulness.  Sometimes carrying me, sometimes walking beside me, You are always the same.  Time after time, even when I fail You, Lord, Your promises remain.  You are always true to Your Word.

the Beginning and the End."
Revelation 21:6

"If you knew the gift of God
and who it is that asks you...."
John 4:10

From The Father's Heart

My child, of all the gifts you receive this year, what can compare to the very first gift-Jesus?  Which one offers lasting peace and eternal security?  After the ribbons are torn from their brightly wrapped boxes, which ones will bring contentment and comfort and hope long after the celebrations are past?  My child, keep Me in your celebration-always.  And remember to celebrate with childlike faith My greatest gift to you for all time.

A Grateful Response

You are more precious than incense, more costly then gold, more fragrant than myrrh-You are the priceless gift of God.  I can only offer You humble gifts-a solitary prayer, a sacrifice of gratitude and praise, a broken life.  Jesus, You'll always be the very best gift to me.

Jesus is the only gift that lasts forever.

PRINCE OF PEACE
Al de carácter firme lo guardarás en perfecta paz , porque en ti confía. Isaías 26:3 NVI http://bible.com/128/isa.26.3.NVI:

For to us a child is born.....
And he will be called...Prince of Peace.


From the Father's Heart

My child, how the world longs for peace! Just as I wept over My beloved Jerusalem and My people's rejection of Me, I mourn when men and women today look for peace-in everything but Me.  As Prince of Peace, I was born not to rule government, but to rule and bring peace to hearts everywhere.  I love when you look to Me for peace, My child.  I give you My peace-peace with God and the peace of God, both found in Me.


A Grateful Response

Your arrival brought great promise: peace to all the world.  Some came seeking an end to oppression; others expected a prince to rule.  As Prince of Peace, You brought the only lasting peace-not with the world, but with God.  And You came to rule in the heart, not on an earthly throne. Thank You for Your peace, Lord.

When Jesus entered the world, peace entered our hearts.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE

Even Your enemies hush when heaven speaks Your name.  All creation bows with wonder as the night of miracles approaches.  You revered Your Father, always doing what honored Him the most.  I, too bow in reverence and celebrate Your coming, Lord.

But I never will.  I am the way.  Follow My footprints, and you'll never lose your way home.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE

My child, apart from Me, you have no wisdom, and life serves no purpose.  My Spirit, the breath of the Almighty, blows through your heart, soul, and mind, and fills it with heaven's thoughts and desires.  Every time a positive thought is born; each time your heart swells in love toward another; whenever you experience an "ah!" moment of truth; the breath of the Almighty has been at work.  It is My Spirit that draws you into My very presence.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE

Your Spirit is the breath of the Almighty, the One who gives me life, the One who determines my purpose here, the One who helps me understand spiritual truths.  You fill up my God-shaped vacuum, Lord.  Thank You for breathing on me, Holy Spirit.

Sweet breath comes from putting His words into our mouths.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE

You're the cavern by the ocean; You're the lighthouse on the sea.  You're the towering oak with leafy arms; You're the cabin in the woods.  wherever danger lurks; wherever winds blow, You are my shelter from the storm.  I can hide in You, Lord, until the storm has passed.

his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:19


FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, have you been begging for crumbs lately?  I've prepared steak and potatoes for you, only part of a complete five-course meal.  Do you think others will believe I can supply their needs if you don't believe Me?  When your heart's desire is to please Me, your requests will be My desires for you.  I own it all, My child.  Let Me give you some of your inheritance.  Let Me supply your needs.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
Even when my bank account registers zero, my heart is full of Your provision, Lord.  You are the supplier of my need, but not the gratifier of my wants.  You are my only true resource.  Thank You, Lord, for Your goodness to me.

RESOURCEFULNESS
He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted. Job 5:9:

Taking the five loaves and the two fish
and looking up to heaven.
he gave thanks and broke the loaves.
Matthew 14:19

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART

My child, what's in your hand?  When I once asked Moses, I turned his rod to a serpent and back again.  I once asked that question of a little boy and multiplied his offering of five loaves and two fish to feed over five thousand men and their families.  Whatever you have in your hand is what I will take and use,  My child, to feed others and to multiply My kingdom's work.  Trust My resourcefulness.  What seems little to you is all I need.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE


Lord, You took a lump of clay and created man.  You turn a desert into a springtime garden and dig a well from a mirage.  You feed thousands with only crumbs.  My "I think I can't" turns to "I know I can" when I look at Your resourcefulness, Lord.  You're amazing.

SIMPLE TRUTH

A king deserves a royal prize, beyond all earthly measure,  I'll give my heart, and nothing less-the highest of my treasure.

LONG-SUFFERING

Long suffering:


The Lord is longsuffering, and of great mercy,
forgiving iniquity and transgression.
Numbers 14:18

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, sometimes you are so impatient with your own and others' faults.  I know it takes a lifetime to build strong character, and I know My timetable for you. Know that I am long-suffering.  My patience never runs out for My children.  I am the God of many chances.  But remember, the longer you stay away, the harder it is to return.  Don't let a single day go by without our fellowship.  And while you're at it, be patient with yourself and others.  My goodness leads others to repentance, just like My discipline.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
Lord, You are long-suffering, slow to get angry or impatient over my faults.  You never excuse my sin, but You forgive much more than seventy times seven.  Your patience waters my life with fragrant drops, merciful gifts to a dry and parched spirit.

SIMPLE TRUTH
Never demand from others what you are not willing to give yourself.

FRIEND WHO STICKS CLOSER
THAN A BROTHER
A friend loves at all times proverbs 17:17 // Canvas quote // bible verse:

But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
Proverbs 18:24

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, I know what it's like to be betrayed by a best friend.  One of My close disciples, Judas Iscariot, turned Me over to My enemies for thirty pieces of silver.  And all My disciples left Me in My time of deepest need.  But I am not like that.  I am your best and closest friend for life.  You will never regret our friendship.  Have I ever let you down?

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
The best of earthly friends will fail us at times.  Even the closest family member will disappoint.  But You are the friend who sticks closer than a brother.  You are the One who loves me unconditionally.  You are the One who never leaves.  You are my friend for all seasons.

SIMPLE TRUTH
Jesus is the only One who will lift you up-and never let you down.

ASSURANCE
Cool doodled inspiring words printable:

"If you have faith as small as a mustard seed...
Nothing will be impossible for you."
Matthew 17:20


FROM THE FATHER'S HEART

My child, do you still have difficulty believing anything is possible?  The older you grow, the more you will have to work to see with childlike eyes of faith.  A mustard seed is a tiny amount of seed-faith, but it grows into a huge shade tree.  My assurance comes from My Father, whose word is all I need. Is My word good enough for you?

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE

Lord, You loved the word impossible.  No problem was too difficult for You to solve.  No person was too diseased for You to heal.  No life was too sinful for You to forgive.  You placed Your assurance in Your heavenly Father's power, and He never failed to deliver.

SIMPLE TRUTH

A tiny grain of faith will bring a mountain full of hope.

...............................................




SOWER
Parable of the sower, among thorns:


"The one who
sowed the good seed is
the Son of Man.
Matthew 13:37

 FROM THE FATHER'S HEART

My child, every good seed that has been planted in your heart comes from Me.  I grow wonderful gardens, but the soil must be prepared.  I'll help you keep your heart pliable, free of hard clumps.  I'll provide nourishment, but you must provide the soil.  I need you to sit in My presence often.  Soak up My showers of goodness; drink in My fertilizing love.  You need ample doses of the Son in your life.  Before you know it, you'll see new growth-and new plants.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE

You planted me, just like a seed, and from my earliest beginnings, You've watered, fed, and nourished me until I could reproduce other plants.  I thank You, Lord, for being the sower of good seed in my life.  My eyes are on the Son.

SIMPLE TRUTH

God adorns each day with bouquets of blessings.
......................................................





TRANQUILITY

C.S. Lewis quote - Life with God is not immunity from difficulties, but peace in difficulties.:


Without warning, a furious storm came up on the lake,
so that the waves swept over the boat.
But Jesus was sleeping.
Matthew 8:24

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART

My child, you need reminders often that I am Lord of your rocking boat.  You may think I'm asleep, but I never slumber or sleep.  My eyes are always riveted on the world-and on My children's lives.  But there is more at stake than your small world can acknowledge.  Rest, Child.  Just rest in Me.  Others need your peace, not your frantic worry.  Let Me be your tranquility.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE

Storms never bothered You, Lord.  They were only opportunities to give God glory.  In the midst of raging waves, when the spray of salt has drenched all  hope of escape, You are still there.  Your tranquility speaks peace to my soul.

SIMPLE TRUTH

If God had intended for us to swim on our own, He would not have given us a lifeboat.

ORIGINALITY
You have no rival. Let that sink in! no one can replace you. #lisabevere #withoutrival Lisa Bevere Without Rival when you discover God has created you uniquely you won't spend your time trying to copy everyone else.:


For you created my inmost beings;
you knit me together
in my mother's womb.
Psalm 139:13

From The Father's Heart

My child, your frame was not a haphazard creation.  I didn't use the same mold to make cookie-cutter shapes and sizes for My children.  Each one is original.  No composites of DNA can ever completely duplicate your heart, soul, and spirit as I created you.  I took great delight in watching each tiny finger and toe being formed in the womb. And when your tiny heart first beat within your mother, all the angels could hear Me rejoice.  I make no mistakes.  You're special to Me, My child.

A Grateful Response

You design each of us with intricate and delicate care, just like a tiny snowflake.  There are no two the same, for You specialize in originality.  Lord, You created me as one of a kind, with my own unique, designer genes.  You're the best, Lord.

Simple Truth

After God breathed life into you, He destroyed the mold.

HOPE OF GLORY

Colossians 1:27 KJV  To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory::

To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles
the glorious riches of this mystery,
which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
Colossians 1:27


From The Father's Heart

My child, if you never had any tunnels to go through, and if you never experienced despair, why would you need to hope?  I have a purpose in everything, even suffering.  Sometimes that purpose is to show you that I am your only hope of glory.  I'm the only One who knows the intricate mysteries of life.  And I choose to pour out those riches to you, My child, because you are in Christ.  In darkness or in light, I will always be that hope for you.

A Grateful Response

When hope is only a dot on the horizon, You flood my life with showers of encouragement.  My hope is in You, Lord: You are my destination; You are my consolation; You are my celebration.  You are Christ in me, my hope of glory.

Simple Truth

Hope is a paint drop of color in an ordinary day.

Act justly, love mercy, walk humbly, scripture sign, Micah 6:8:
How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
Psalm 139:17



FROM THE FATHER'S HEART


My child, I'm thrilled to see you today.  I always am.  You were on My mind long before your birth, and every day I'm thinking up new ways to bless you and use you to bless others.  If you tried to count My thoughts, you'd tire before the day ended.  They are as numerous as the grains of sand on the beach.  How do I really feel about you?  Precious is your middle name.  I hope you'll always feel the same about me.


A GRATEFUL RESPONSE

You never forget my birthday, Lord.  You're always thinking of me.  Before my eyes can greet the early morning's sun, before my ears can hear the robin's first song, You're already waiting to greet me with loving anticipation.  Lord, thank You for Your thoughtfulness to me.

SIMPLE TRUTH

There's not a single day but what God thinks of us, we are always on his mind.

He had great authority,
and the earth was illuminated
by his splendor.
Revelation 18:1

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART

My child, remember that bad things do happen to good people.  You live in a fallen world.  But in your darkness, I will provide light.  Brighter than any angel's splendor or shining sun, I am the light.  As your illumination, I will push back the dark corners of your life until you can see clearly again.  I will never leave you without hope-or light.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE

Soon after the twilight hours are gone, as light seems to fade sadly into darkness, there You are, Lord shining as a lighthouse to guide me through the night.  And soon my darkness is past, for You, my illumination, have appeared.  Thank You for Your presence, Lord.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Jesus is the light of the world.  We are His matches.

"I am your shield, your very great reward."

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART

My child, do you understand all that I have planned for you?  Everywhere you look, I have planted My blessings for you.  Those who love Me will never be disappointed.  Think of life as a treasure hunt, only let your search be for Me.  Others look all their lives for meaning and purpose, but at the end of their rainbow there is no pot of gold, only heartache.  When you search for Me, you will find great, abundant treasure.  I am your very great reward.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE

Lord, I need no wreaths or victory crowns.  My life deserves no praise.  You are enough, just to see Your face and to live in Your presence forever.  You are my great reward.  With thankful adoration, I can share in a royal celebration forever.

TRUSTWORTHINESS
Scripture art, Trust in the Lord, 8x10 Fine Art Print | StudioJRU - Print on ArtFire:


The angel said to me,
"These words are trustworthy and true."
Revelation 22:6

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART

My child, have you read My account lately of heaven and of life's final events?  Exciting, isn't it?  You don't understand it all?  You don't have to.  Sounds too beautiful to be true?  Golden streets, crystal rivers, tree of life with fruit for healing-trust Me, My child.  These pictures can't begin to describe the beauty of heaven.  My name and My words are the same.  I am Trustworthiness-and everything I have said in My word I will do.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE

From Your very first command, "Let there be light,"  to the last "Amen" announcing Your second coming, You have trustworthiness.  Not a single word will pass away, not a word of truth will be lost, because Your words never return void.  How faithful You have been in my life!  I trust You, Lord.

God has prepared a place where every dream can find fulfillment, and every hope can find a home.

DEFENSE
Why did I put this in my pro-life board, you ask? Because I know that the Lord is my defense from all of the hatred that is sure to come my way because of where I stand. I will not be moved!:


But the Lord is my defense;
and my God is the rock of my refuge.
Psalm 94:22

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART

My child, do I need to open your eyes as I did to My servant long ago?  In the heat of battling your habits and temptations, or when circumstances try your patience and faith, remember I am your defense.  My angels do hand-to-hand combat at My command.  You may not see them, but they surround you, day in and day out.  Open your eyes of faith.  The battle is mine.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE

Like a veteran returning home from foreign wars, I see the scars of battle, those incurred when I fought apart from Your strength.  But when I depend on You alone to man the front line for me, I'm a victor every time.  Lord, thank You for being my defense.  I'm glad You're on my side.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Like a shining star, He lights our path, even in the dark.

REWARDER
Revelation 22:12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. Revelation 1:7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him ... Those who pierced him are death but still they will (have) seen him. God is timeless.:
Because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists
and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
Hebrews 11:6


FROM THE FATHER'S HEART

My child, do you know how much I enjoy rewarding My children?  I love when you go on treasure hunts in My Word.  I've hidden so many special treats there, just for your eyes.  They will bless your socks off!  I am the rewarder of those who diligently seek Me with their whole hearts.  I've never yet turned away one who sincerely came looking for Me, and who really believed who I was.  And I never will.  Some rewards are for now; others are waiting for you in heaven.  Your faith, My child, is what pleases Me.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE

Lord, You do not play hide and seek with Your children.  You're the rewarder, always waiting at the end of my search, like the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.  Lord, the reward of Your applause, Your familiar "well done" is all that really matters.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Each journey with God is an adventure of faith.

Amen... Lisa Christiansen, child of the one true king ΙΧΘΥΣ:


"Can anyone teach knowledge to God,
since he judges even the highest?"
Job 21:22

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART

My child, pride is a dangerous thing.  Be careful, lest the knowledge you acquire puff you up and make you obnoxious to others.  The one who gives ready answers without thinking is like a cloud that brings no rain.  I am knowledge itself, and though learning from others is beneficial, I am your ultimate source of information.  Check out My words in Scripture.  There, you'll find everything you need for holy and righteous living.  Knowledge without love is useless.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE

Those who tried to confuse and correct You were silenced by Your knowledge, Lord.  Who can argue with the God of the universe?  Who would dare to correct the God Most High?  Yet at times, even I have questioned You, Lord.  Your knowledge is too great for me to begin to understand.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Better to have a big heart than a big head.

BEAUTY
 :

One thing I ask of the Lord...
to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord
and to seek him in his temple.

Psalm 27:4


FROM THE FATHER'S HEART

 My child, My beauty is for you to enjoy.  Everything I've created, I've made for you.  Look around. There's beauty in the earth and skies, in every field and flower, in every creature that walks on earth.  And My beauty is in you, Child.  You don't see it?  Maybe it's because you're looking in the wrong mirror again.  You are beautiful to Me.


A GRATEFUL RESPONSE

When I think about the beauty of Your creation, who am I,  Lord, that You consider me?  Yet as magnificent as Your works are, there is no comparison to Your own beauty.  My one desire is to be a God-seeker, not a people-pleaser, and that I could live in Your home and worship You forever.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Beauty is in the eye of the believer

TOWER
You are my shield, my strength, my portion, my shelter, my strong tower and my deliverer.:



The name of the Lord is a strong tower;
the righteous run to it and are safe.
Proverbs 18:10

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART

My child, when terror rises up like an erupting volcano, stop, drop, and pray.  Cry out to Me, and in those precious moments, you will feel a surge of courage as you've never known.  Call My name, and you'll sense an invisible tower looming out of nowhere. Run to it.  I'll be waiting there for you with open arms.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE

I cry, "Father" and a thousand currents of lightning carry Your name to the highest heavens.  Farther than the eye can see or the ear can hear, You are waiting to rescue me.  You are my tower, a place of safety and refuge daily.

SIMPLE TRUTH

We need not fear, for with every step, and every place, God is near.

PLANTER
Psalm 1:2-3 (ESV) ~~ but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.  ~~ Meditate on God’s Word | Psalm 1:2-3:
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.
Isaiah 61:3

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART

My child, do you sometimes feel like a tiny acorn surrounded by huge oak trees?  I hear your sighs.  I know how badly you want to grow, yet there are times you may see no progress at all.  Trust Me.  I am the planter.  It takes years to grow a sturdy oak.  Don't be impatient.  Just because you can't see the branches doesn't mean My power is not at work in you.  Your labor is not in vain.  In time, you, too will become an oak that offers shade and blessing to many.

A GRATEFUL RESONSE

At times I've wished to be a strong, study oak, or maybe a pine whose green branches grace the forest all year.  Yet sometimes I feel like I'll always be a twig.  You decide what I'll be, according to your divine plan.  I'll bloom, Lord, wherever I'm planted.

SIMPLE TRUTH

He is the planter; we are the seed.

EVERLASTING ARMS

You have chosen me & called me for great things. So I will chose to say yes to your way, your will, & your plans.:


The eternal God is your refuge,
and underneath are the everlasting arms.
Deuteronomy 33:27

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART

My child, do you fear stepping out in faith?  Are you like that baby eagle, trembling before you try out your wings?  Are you looking down at the ground or up at the sky?  Remember, at the moment you exercise your faith wings, I am there to catch you if you fall.  Underneath the thin air you will find a cushion awaiting your landing.   My everlasting arms will be your pillow.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE

When I'm afraid or hurting, I run to You to find refuge.  Halfway there, You meet me, Lord, with arms open wide.  Tenderly, You scoop me up, and there, in Your everlasting arms I rest until the fear and pain are gone.  You're such a comfort, Lord.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Faith gives wings to our dreams.

............................................... 









GENTLENESS
Philippians 4:5 be gentle, loving and kind to especially those whom can be no benefit to you.:

By the meekness and gentleness of Christ,
I appeal to you.
2 Corinthians 10:1

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART

My child, is My gentleness such a difficult character trait to mirror?  Perhaps it is because you confuse it with weakness.  I only reflect My Father's personality.  If the awesome God of the universe, who has all power and all might, could still care about the fall of one sparrow or hug a child to His heart with the tender love of a mother, can you not believe gentleness is a virtue?  Let Me fill you with My gentleness. It's impossible on your own.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE

The gentleness of Jesus is not just for babes, but for every one of God's children.  Lord, You treat each one of us as a fragile flower, a delicate blossom to be handled with care.  Thank You for Your gentle and personal attention.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Jesus is God's personal hug to us.

.....................................................






INDESCRIBABLE GIFT
I asked Jesus "How much do you love me?" Jesus replies, "this much" & stretched His arms out on the cross & died.:


Thanks be to God
for His indescribable gift!
2 Corinthians 9:15

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART

My child, the next time you are feeling unimportant or slighted, remember again My indescribable gift to you-the gift of Myself.  To the common observer, My life on earth had a humble beginning and a tragic ending.  But the trained eye will recognize heaven's love gift as the One to all the world.  I exclude no one.  Those who reject the gift choose their own fate.  Take the indescribable gift of My presence-and offer it to those I send your way.  It will change their lives forever.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE

Of all the gifts I've ever received, none compares to You, Lord.  You are the indescribable gift, packaged with love and sent with heaven's blessing.  Thank You for the wonderful gift of Yourself-the gift that keeps on giving and giving.

SIMPLE TRUTH

One heart to give in simple faith, one testimony true, one gift, one song, one life, one heart-I give them, Lord, to you.

..............................................






INFALLIBILITY
HEBREWS 4:12~~~One of my favorite scriptures <3:

All your words are true;
all your righteous laws are eternal.
Psalm 119:160

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART

My child, you can never add or subtract anything from My words.  They are infallible, as am I .  Others may try to change the rules in midstream, reinventing codes and creeds that fit their lifestyles and pleasures.  But My Word and My principles still stand.  Test them, My child.  See if I will not pour out a blessing upon you and the ones for whom you pray.  Trust My decisions and My infallible character.  You will see one day how the puzzle of your life fits together.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE

You are the only One who ever lived that has infallibility.  Human error abounds, but You are the perfect rose, the spotless lamb, the purest gold.  Though You make allowance for my errors, You never make mistakes.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Our perfectionism will drive us to failure, but our dependency will lead us to God.

How many are your works, O Lord!
In wisdom you made them all.
Psalm 104:24

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART

My child, did you know I had dreams, too?  Who do you think designed every four-legged creature, every flower petal, and every winged insect?  Who hung the stars in space and hollowed out the ground?  Who raised the earth until it loomed majestically toward the sky in snow-covered brilliance?  And who wrote the prescription for your eyes, hair, body shape, and gifts?  My imagination lets Me dream big dreams, and My power accomplishes them.  All things are possible through Me, My child.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE

You wrap the mountains in a coat of majesty and sprinkle the earth with heaven's manna.  You dot the night skies with Your magnificence, reminding me of my insignificance.  You paint the earth with a multitude of colors.  Lord, I love Your imagination. 

SIMPLE TURTH

The wonder of God's creation is surpassed only by the beauty of His love.

LEADERSHIP
On the days I feel low I look at this and I beleive God is always at my side. Keeping me going.:


Do not be discouraged,
for the Lord your God
will be with you wherever you go.
Joshua 1:9

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART

My child, when others question you in your hour of trial-"Where will you find a job now?"  "What are your plans?"  "Why did this happen?"  "Can you really do that?"-here is how you can respond.  Say these words: "My Father knows the answers. And I trust His leadership.  No matter where I go, or what He asks me to do, I know He will be with me. I'm not afraid because my leader is trustworthy.  He will never leave me alone."  It will strengthen their faith-and yours.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE

Lord, You did not abandon us in some deep cave shrouded in mystery.  Future events are not left to chance but are well planned in the Father's mind.  You, Lord, are the revelation-showing us God's nature, reputation, will, and our future.  Thank You for including me in Your future.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Tomorrow is never a question when God is in control.

.....................................................






PERCEPTION
We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:5:

The Lord knows the thoughts of man;
he knows that they are futile.
Psalm 94:11

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART

My child, whatever you think about in your heart determines what kind of a person you are.  Ask daily for My perception.  Every negative thought is like a poisonous pill that feeds your circulation with defeat.  Let My thoughts penetrate your heart and soul so that you can keep heaven on your mind.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE

As I bring each thought to You, Lord, You shape it into a beautiful flower.  You know the deepest things in my heart, and only with Your mind can I think about things that are pure, lovely, and of good report.  Thank You for Your perception, Lord.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Each day brings new celebrations to mind as we trace the threads of His faithfulness and love.

He will not grow tired or weary
Isaiah 40:28

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART

My child, does your heart lack "get up and go"?  Is your faith anemic?  Do your knees buckle each time I call on you for a special task?  Are you approaching emotional burnout?  Cease your striving.  You'll wear out if you don't.  Wait on Me.  Let Me empower you.  My supernatural energy will keep you going and going and going.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE

When light streams through my window, and morning calls too soon, You remind me that You are my strength, Lord.  Your energy becomes mine, as we plan the day together.  You're what keeps me going, Lord.

SIMPLE TRUTH
In the arms of God, we'll find a resting place, a refuge for our weary hearts.  In His love He'll walk beside us, holding our cares gently in His hands.

GOD is Everything to me and my family... To "Me" and to "Ours" too, gf in Christ!!! - ks:



For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
and are justified freely by his grace
Through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.
Romans 3:23-24

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART

My child, sometimes I see you trying to strain for My approval like a child acting out to get his parent's attention.  Your activities, busyness and good works add nothing to our relationship unless they are done because of your love for Me-and not to earn My favor.  I am the justifier, who made you pleasing in My Father's eyes, not because of your performance, but because of My death.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE

How could I measure up to a holy, righteous God as You?  I fall short, again and again.  Yet because of Your love and grace, You are the justifier-treating me as if I had never sinned.  Because of Your death, every sunrise is a brand-new day to welcome with joy.

SIMPLE TRUTH

God's thoughts never change toward His children.  Day by day, He showers us with new mercies, unlimited grace, and unending love.

Repairer of Broken Walls."
Isaiah 58:12

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART

My child, all My children suffer "breakdowns" in their walls at one time or another.  Those gaps in your armor where sin has broken through, those tears in your heart that thoughtless actions ripped away, those tornadoes that whipped through your life without a warning-I've seen them all, My child.  But I am the Repairer of Broken Walls-and that includes your heart.  Renovation is My specialty.  I'm always gentle but thorough.  Give Me your heart daily.  I'll do the rest.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE

Just like the broken-down walls of Your beloved city Jerusalem, my life had been broken beyond repair.  Yet You took the remains and mended  the damage, restoring what was destroyed.  You are the Repairer of Broken Walls and because of You, I now stand complete. Thank You, Jesus.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Time alone never truly heals.  Only the Father's touch can restore completely what was lost.

COVERING

 :

Blessed is he whose transgressions are forgiven,
whose sins are covered.
Psalm 32:1

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART

My child, sin leaves you exposed to all kinds of catastrophes-like trudging through a blizzard in shorts or walking through hot coals barefooted.  But My death, My blood, and My love form a covering for you.  No longer can the sins of the past haunt you.  Live in My joy and freedom and in My covering of love and forgiveness.  My favor rests on those who have asked-and received-My forgiveness.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE

Lord, You send a blanket of love, like new-fallen snow, to cover my life parched with sin.  As time goes by, You melt each flake, never stopping to look underneath the covers.  Soon blossoms appear where nothing grew before, as You replace the desert with springtime.  You are my covering, Lord.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Is there a safer, warmer place to be than beneath the covering of God's arms?

FIRMNESS
PSALM 18:32 ~ God makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he enables me to stand on the heights:


Your statutes stand firm;
holiness adorns your house for endless days, O Lord.
Psalm 93:5


FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, though your enemies try to shake you to the core, you can stand firm.  Because I am with you, you need never stumble or fall.  I am rock solid, and I will be your firm  foundation when everything else is crumbling around you.  Give Me your hand and hold on tight.  Together we can withstand any "earthquake."

A GRATEFUL RESONSE

I have not built my faith on sinking sand or crumbling rocks.  Your Word, Your very nature, has firmness, Lord.  And as long as I plant my life in the center of Yours, I can stand confidently.  Lord, You and Your Word will never end.

SIMPLE TRUTH

When the only place we can look is up, He is faithful to meet us and greet us at our point of need.

INTELLIGENCE
well said:

The Jews were amazed and asked,
"How did this man get such learning without having studied?"
John 7:15

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART

My child, all the degrees in the world will not make you more like Me.  But I have given you the mind of Christ, and I expect you to use that mind to its fullest capacity.  Meditate on My words daily.  Others were astounded at My intelligence because I spoke My Father's words.  When your time comes to speak, trust Me.  Don't rely on your own intelligence, or you will fail every time.  Open your mouth, and I will fill it with My words.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE

Those who listened to Your words found no Ph.D. following Your name.  You were taught at the knee of Your Father.  You spoke not Your own words, but the words of God.  Lord, I praise You for Your intelligence.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Lord, teach us to open the doors of our minds, and shut the doors of our mouths.

DEPENDABILITY
Photo, a post from the blog Spiritual Inspiration on Bloglovin'.:


"The Father loves the Son
and has placed everything in his hands."
John 3:35

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART

My child, are you ready for more responsibility?  Are you ready for Me to enlarge your area of influence?  As you prove faithful in small things, I will give you more to handle.  My Father entrusted Me with His plan for the world.  My dependability is an example for you, My child.  If I ask you to do anything beyond your resources, it is so that you will trust Me to work through you and give Me glory.  When you're ready, just ask.  I'll stretch your abilities-and your territory.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE

There was no job too hard for You to complete, no responsibility too difficult for You to handle, no burden too heavy for You to bear.  God entrusted His power, love, nature-His all-into Your hands, Lord.  Because You have dependability, I trust You with my life.

SIMPLE TRUTH

It only takes one-plus Jesus.

SAVIOR
Whether he is a sinner or not, I don’t know. One thing I do know. I was blind but now I see! - John 9:25 I was becoming frustrated of saying it. Everyone was asking, but no one was listening. I answered the same way and yet they kept on asking. Again. And again. No one ever seemed to hear what I say... CLICK THE IMAGE TO KEEP READING:
"And we know that this man really is
the Savior of the world."
John 4:42

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART

My child, it was for you I died-you and the whole world.  I came to rescue the ones lost in their own world of suffering and meaningless confusion.  I came to open blind eyes, long closed to the truth.  I came to open the gates of prisoners whose hearts were hardened by hatred.  I am the Savior of the world, and whoever believes in Me for their salvation will never die.  But I am also your personal Savior, continually freeing you from strongholds that threaten our fellowship.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE

Lord, You walked into my prison of darkness and broke the chains that had bound me for years.  You are not just my Savior.  You have released prisoners from fear and shame for centuries.  All power and might belong to You-my Savior, God, redeemer, and friend.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Who in their right mind would want to reenter prison after tasting freedom?

PRECISION
Praise Him in the hallway! Yes, God is about to open another chapter in my life, waiting on God, Amen:
There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven.
Ecclesiastes 3:1

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART

My child, waiting is hard for you sometimes, isn't it?  All good things come to those who wait for Me.  You are anxious about many things, but you can trust My precision.  As long as there is life and breath, there will always be seasons.  And as long as I rule the world-which is forever-you can count on My perfect timing in your life.  All things are beautiful in their time-even you, My child, especially you.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE

Spring waters the parched ground.  Summer's sunshine wraps each flower with a warm coat.  Each golden leaf falls as if on cue, and nature waits with hushed voice, as You seal winter with a kiss of sleep.  Thank You for Your precision, Lord.  You're always on time.

SIMPLE TRUTH

 Trust holds on....when fear lets go.

AWARENESS
His Eye is on the Sparrow, and I know He watches me...one of my favorite songs.  He watches over us all!:
"You see the people crowding against you,"
his disciples answered,
"and yet you can ask, "Who touched me?"

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART

My child, no matter how large My world grows, and no matter how many children I have, there is room in My heart for every one of them.  I especially hear the cries of My hurting children and feel the touch of faith from those who press through to reach My heart.  I want all to come to Me, and none to perish.  I am aware of every heartfelt need, every devastating pain, every crushing blow you face.  Reach out and touch Me, My child, and I will make you whole.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE

You see my face, speak my name, and touch my life, even among a thousand other people.  How is it that You, who care for so many, still have time for me?  Your awareness of those around You amazes me, Lord.  You are such a personal, loving God.

SIMPLE TRUTH

When we travel, we see landmarks.  When Jesus traveled, He saw faces.

...........................................................





WATCHMAN

He will order his angels to protect you wherever you go. They will hold you up with their hands so you won't even hurt your foot. on a stone. Psalm 91:11-12:


The Lord watches over you
all who love him.
Psalm 145:20


FROM THE FATHER'S HEART

My child, you can relax in My arms.  I'm much more capable of protecting you than you are yourself.  Are you terrorized by the events you see in My world?  A thousand may fall all around you, but I will keep evil from your home.  I am your watchman, and I have eyes in the back , front, and on the side!  I can see in every direction what's coming your way.  Nothing escapes My attention.  Continue on faithfully, My child.  I'm in control.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE

Just like a faithful security guard, wary of every surrounding detail, You keep watch over my life.  I trust You, Lord, for You see before me and behind me.  In daylight or dark, from every direction, I feel Your awesome protection.  Thank You for being my watchman.

SIMPLE TRUTH

We are never out of sight or out of mind.  God's love and light reach farther then the eye can see.

GIVER OF GOOD GIFTS
When it comes down to it all humans are equal. Even criminals to non-criminals. We all have different opinions, there for we see each sin differently. We either all deserve nothing or all deserve everying. Its pretty clear which one when we just glance at the world.:
"How much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!"
Matthew 7:11
FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, I get so excited thinking up all the surprises I'd like to send your way.  Gifts.  Wonderful blessings to enrich your life.  There's so much I want to do for and through you.  But there's a catch.  You limit Me, My child.  Come, sit a while, and tell Me your heart's desires.  You have not because you do not ask.  Trust Me to take every desire and wrap it in the way I know will bless your life the most.  Wait until you see what I've planned for you today.
A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
Whatever You give, Lord, is good and perfect.  You wrap each gift with tenderness, adorn it with love, and tie it up with ribbons of blessing that fill my days with heaven's best.  Nothing that comes from Your hand is a mistake.  You are the giver of good gifts.  And I receive You gladly. 
SIMPLE TRUTH
The best things in life are found in Jesus.
