As I opened up my emails this morning, I read my devotional from Our Daily Bread, that a friend shared with me almost twenty years ago.
I can still remember the first one.
It was about a pearl’s creation.
Did you know that it’s the irritants from sand that causes the pearl to be formed?
What a revelation by a parable.
Got any irritation going on in your life?
That blessed my life then, and it blesses my life now.
Thank God someone shared that information.
I just read in John 13 where Jesus told His disciples that;
“From now on I am telling you [what will happen] before it occurs, so that when it does take place you may believe that I am He [who I say I am—the Christ, the Anointed, the Messiah].”
John 13:19 AMP
If you guys could only peek into my heart today.
This blog, like the others I’ve shared since January, were all written and titled ahead of time.
Jesus was, and is doing, exactly what He said right here, for me.
And if He’s doing it for me, it’s to get to you.
I had a surge of Thankfulness in my heart last night, for every reader and partner here.
This blog is the avenue that God is using to get His heart to you.
We’re partners because I have words to share, and you all, have ears to hear.
I wanted to say all these things today, but didn’t have any idea, what I would open to this morning.
I just had this title and the thought of opening my emails.
And then I knew.
It was His Heart, of Thankfulness, for you.
I appreciate the Words of encouragement and at times sharpening, the Words these other author’s share with me.
Didn’t Jesus say, freely you’ve received,
Now, freely GIVE?
There were days that I felt I couldn’t catch my Breath, and there was the Word-
The exact Word I needed to change my mind from flesh to Spirit.
I saw these emails and devos, not just as someone’s talent,
But the very Words of My Father, and Savior to me.
Remember how I said Lauren Daigle wrote Rescue just for me!
Look at what Jesus told the boys about this:
“I assure you and most solemnly say to you, the one who receives and welcomes whomever I send receives Me; and the one who receives Me receives Him who sent Me [in that same way].””
John 13:20 AMP
This is Why and What I’m Thankful for.
I’ve freely received and I’m thankful for that, but I am now freely giving, and I’m thankful for that as well.
I’m THANKFUL for your hearts.
I believe it’s good ground.
The kind that produces 100 fold.
It’s gardening season for the Weible House, but
Months ago, my man started to prepare the soil.
I am doing the same in my heart.
And I believe you are as well.
Another Mighty Man of God told me not long ago, to never become familiar with the Word.
That means you can’t become familiar with me or anyone else, that God uses to speak to your heart.
Absolutely you should Judge all things by the Word of God,
But so often we see each other as family.
Instead of seeing each other as the answer to the question in our hearts that day.
God has so much been sharing revelation with me on this.
Paul would say he wanted to know nothing about others except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
Yet, the majority of the time we’ve been living like we know “what you did last summer!”
Not receiving, because we’ve become familiar with flesh.
In my flesh is no good thing.
No matter how much or how little talent I have.
Talent doesn’t change us.
The Word does.
Look for it.
Be blessed by it.
I’m encouraged by your heart’s to Follow Jesus.
God spoke to one of the Old Testament prophet’s and said, that “He had reserved for Himself (God) 7,000 that had not bowed their knees to Baal.”
Greater than that Prophet is here.
His Name is Jesus,
And we are that 7,000!
Not bowing our knees or our hearts to anyone, or anything but Jesus.
It’s a pleasure to partner with you!
I see us like the Peter, James and John.
Our boats coming together to load up the harvest for the Kingdom!
If this blog blesses you, share it.
That’s how we work together.
Before I started writing on my own, I shared what I had received in my emails.
Still do at times.
But whatever it is that God is sharing with you, share it with others.
That’s How the Kingdom operates.
He takes what’s in your hand, and multiplies it.
You are precious in my hand’s today.
I’m lifting you all to the Father.
Grace and PEACE be multiplied!
