I’ve moved around a fair amount,
And marriage by far, is the saddest, loneliest place I’ve ever lived – cw

You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book Psalm 56:8

Why do you keep records of something? You keep records of things that have value. Birth certificates, insurance policies, to prove validity, you keep records. So now reconsider & reread “You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book”

He’s collected my tears in a bottle, nothing was wasted, he has the proof! And if the evidence wasn’t enough, he backed each one up with the paperwork and made record of each one in a book.
Now even our sins, if we ask, are forgiven and separated as far as the east is from the west. But our tears aren’t wasted, even if it seems like they went unnoticed unredeemed, they didn’t. There’s evidence, he saved each one and recorded it. Wow!
See before I reread this I wanted to shout if you know how many tears I’ve cried why doesn’t that jog your memory enough to step in, how many tears have I cried over this situation alone, gallons perhaps! If you hold my tears in your hands which I thought you did because of the casting crowns song, but I see now its a bottle, isn’t it overflowing now? Where’s my rescue, where’s my rest. If I can’t quit, where’s the ladder to get over this mountain, where’s your victory, show me again what it looks like, because I’m lost in defeat. The only part of me that’s not quitting is the you in me and the you in me’s always enough. It’s just today I could use a little bit more of you in me.

Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy Psalms 126:5 and that’s the soundtrack to my victory dance.

Unravel Love

What if it’s possible to unravel love.
I mean think about it
If you unravel a lie it can destroy an entire family. In the business world a single lie unraveling devalues shareholders & devastates everyone invested or involved. The thing about a lie is when you find one it always uncovers more, that’s the destroying rot of a lie, they grow like mold eating away at life because lies are alway buried and buried things take root and roots that are fed run deep.
Now I believe my God that holds the world in his hands is balanced.
I believe that Satan is not a creator he is a counterfeiter.
I believe that we’ve been unraveling lies so long, the statement unraveling love seems as practical as a purple unicorn.
I’m not gonna let a liar; in fact the father of lies convince me that uncovering the ability to unravel love is a pipe dream.
I believe it’s a word from my Father happily saying look here, yes here…ohhhh you’re getting sooo close.
I believe unraveling one thread of love leads to an entire nest of love & pulls at the very fabric of our design, God is Love! That’s a quote, we are made in his image, that’s a fact. All of creation is groaning & waiting for the children of God to understand who they are & who’s they are and then apply it!!
Everyday for weeks I’ve been asking the Father over & over & over again, “how do I unravel love in my family?” where’s the thread I pull on in this situation?
I believe when God says seek & you will find.
My God is not a Liar!!

My God is HUGE
And although I have rattled some cages this week they are tremors of just that, cages that hold a desperate roar dying in fact to convince me of the only thing it has to sell, fear
My God is HUGE
He’s not scared so neither am I! He said greater is he who is in me, so I say
My God is HUGE
When I feel worthless he reminds me of my worth, when I feel penniless he reminds me of his worth, when I feel the most unloved, he absolutely lavishes me with the deepest seeping love that it leaks in & fills all my cracks
My God is HUGE
And the tremors from the cages I’ve rattled, they know with face, what I know with faith, for what I revel in they slithered from, I was called in & they were called out, I’m redeemed & they’re doomed. I’m highly favored & they couldn’t be further from the truth.
My God is HUGE.

What are you Chasing?
Everyone’s chasing something, we chase dreams, dogs chase their tail, some of us run fast enough that we can actually see what we’re chasing. No matter was your pace is something lies ahead that keeps you from turning around, so what is that?
What is King Saul would’ve chased after God the way he chased after David, well that would’ve change history. He was capable of the chase, because he chased, he had the time, because he used it, he had the resources because he used them. King Saul spent his life chasing David.

You can use hind sight to change your chase, history is being made every day. You are in charge of the direction of your chase. Generations from now will history look back & admire your chase or will they learn from your waste.
