The Lord has Cleared the Stage of my heart. I am making room for Him–more room. Help me Lord Jesus to continue.
Life is so urgent it necessitates living slow.
– Ann Voskamp, One Thousand Gifts
In my reflection time this morning, (do you have reflection time every day?) I saw more about the Larger Expansive Story that is being written. I heard from the one who formed me about His Truth.
To fulfill God’s promise to us, He launches the most unlikely invasion of enemy territory (here, where you and I live) ever undertaken: the Incarnation. “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us.” Jesus came into the Kingdom of Darkness and, through His death on the Cross, redeemed us, from Darkness and from the hands of the evil one!!!
Redeemed! Rest in that today!

Even though this daughter made a stupid choice, dad’s love for her has never changed. He never forgot his promise to take care her!
The God in heaven loves His children more than an earthly father in the world. The Lord says to you, ‘Since the day you were born, I have carried you. I will still be the same when you are old and gray. I will take care of you!’
There are so many elements to fear. It is a vast subject. Fear is an emotion that is so harmful and negative that we respond with the most immediate action we can take to remove it or eliminate it.
I want to face my fears. I want to conquer my fears. I should say that I want God to enable me to conquer all my fears. Will I ever? I don’t know.
I know that I have Him and He opposes all the fear I experience. I am seeing fear is a wrong response and has elements of non-faith.
I want to get to the root of my fears and place them where they belong, in God’s care.
Ann Voskamp has made a statement or two about fear that speaks to me. She has written as though God is speaking. Maybe He communicated this to her in some way. Her book, one thousand gifts, does not designate.
All fear is but the notion that God’s love ends. Did you think that I end, that My bread and warehouses are limited, that I will not be enough? But I am infinite child, what can end in Me? Can life end in Me? Can happiness? Or peace? Or anything you need? Doesn’t your Father always give you what you need? I am the Bread of Life and My bread for you will never end. Fear thinks God is finite and fear believes that there is not going to be enough and hasn’t counted the one thousand gifts, exposed the lie at the heart of all fear? In Me, blessings never end because my love for you never ends. If My goodness toward you ends, I will cease to exist, child. As long as there is a God in heaven, there is grace on earth and I am the spilling God of the uncontainable, forever-overflowing-love-grace.
