I hope I am not posting too often, but there is just so much that comes to mind, usually at night, that the next day I can't wait to post!!

Surrender. We sing the song in church, I surrender all. We lift our hands, cry out loud, bow down, but have we surrendered? We sing louder, cry louder......are we crying out to the song, or to The One that can deliver if we surrender? God wants all of you. Every part of you. He is too good to settle for less, too supreme not to want the best. There is good in you, lots of it.... for you were made in His image. Accept His Son..... the Holy Son Jesus! Invite Him into your heart. That is where the surrender starts. Surrender it ALL once and for all,  be free! Free to love, praise, worship, give and trust. I mean really praise, and worship. Not the ritual you do in church for the attention of others. But just you and God......alone. Enjoying each others company. That's what He wants......that's what you need. Sing to the deliverer, don't sing to the song, preacher, congregation, or to yourself. Sing to Him. Make a joyful noise.

I saw a video of a worship service where a cloud of gold dust settled in the sanctuary. I wasn't there so I can't say how it felt. Naysayers say it can't be real., but what if it is? Are you ready for the Glory Cloud to overtake you?? Are you ready for the Shekinah Glory of God to invade your life? Your mind? Shake you to the core? Jesus is the rider on the White Horse, and He will come with might, power and strength. Are you ready?? Can you handle the Glory of  The One....... The Anointed One?? Surrender it all, let it go. Release it to Him so when the Glory Cloud comes you aren't so wrapped up in yourself , situations, failures, and heartaches that you can't worship Him in His presence. You were created to worship, not the creation.......The CREATOR! You were created to worship in Spirit and in Truth. Do you know Truth?? Do you know the Spirit??

It takes surrender to say "Jesus I can't do this alone, I have tried and failed, I will continue to fail without You. Jesus you hung, bled, died, and rose again so that I may be FREE! Take my heart, break it,  mold it, INVADE it". He loves those requests! Like a doctor trying to revive a heart attack victim, He will massage your heart to get the Holy Blood that was supposed to flow in your veins from the beginning of time but has been blocked and tainted due to life, to flow back to your heart where it belongs. Your heart will beat differently. He will remove the bricks, bricks of shame, bricks of defeat, fear and by one, as He is a gentleman. He won't rip them apart. The Master Carpenter will make a path and build an archway around your heart with those bricks as an entryway, for HIMSELF. Let it flow. Let your DNA be remade. Surrender!! He is calling your name.

Ezekiel 36:26 (NIV)     I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.

Praise God!! And thank you, because if I had not met you, and been exposed to the money saving mom blog I would not have done any of this. So thank you for accepting my friend request and being supportive! That means sooooooooo much. :-) I love the way the Lord works! I take no credit for what He is doing in my life!!
