Welcome to my 'heart' (blog)!

This is a place I'd like to share my heart with anyone interested in reading "random thoughts" on my journey called life :) I would like to offer a place of encouragement and joy and hopefully inspiration in this culture that seems so bleak... *Enjoy!

Thankful for Simplicity~

I am so thankful for the simplicity that is in our GOD...to know Him is to LOVE Him...to love Him is to OBEY Him...to obey Him is to dwell in PEACE and REST! :) There is safety within the bounds of our Father. He provides what we need to live and love and abound in every good work...because I can TOTALLY TRUST Him, I can live in faith-not fear; in wonderment-not worry; in great joy-not despair!! HalluYAH! :) I'm so very very thankful.

I am blessed beyond measure to be able to live such a fulfuilled life, because HE has given me LIFE! :) Now do not misunderstand, in our culture we tend to immediately assosiate 'fulfillment', 'success', and 'blessings' with financial/material gain or possession-- NONE of which I'm implying....No, HIS LIFE is so much MORE than THAT. Treasures that cannot be offered by anyone or anything other than our Father. As we draw near unto Him and embrace Him...we are filled to overflowing...as if He cannot contain Himself in His delight for us :) What a joyous place to live!

 When we draw near unto YaHWeH and behold 'WHO' He is...we are faced with a choice: to embrace Him or to resist Him. To embrace Him is to embrace ALL that 'is' Him...every opinion and judgement that He holds...every command of His will and heart...every 'thing' that "makes Him" WHO He IS. To resist Him, is to be as the children Isreal...they beheld Him at the mount and told Moses  to face Him FOR them-they themselves resisted...they also resisted Him as their King, desiring an earthly king (as all the other nations around them-seeking to be as 'the world' instead of receiving GOD's desire for them). And couldn't we go on and on about the many many times Isreal resisted our Father instead of embracing Him with their whole heart? And can't we go on and on about our own choices...resisting Who GOD "IS" instead of embracing Him whole-heartedly? But I'm thankful that He has chosen to show us Who He is through His Son, our beloved Messiah. I'm thankful He has chosen to extend His grace and mercy to us and He makes them new every morning...Great is His faithfulness!!

Choosing to live within our GOD and to embrace the life He has chosen for His creation...and then experiencing All that He desires for us....isn't it THAT SIMPLE? :)
