Ponderings of love and other thoughts

It’s been awhile, in that window days have gone by, and life has dragged and has been swift. My birthday came and passed by, I am a year older. To a new year of graces and mercies and to everything that bears the breath of heaven!

Lately, my heart has been lurking on “our oneness with God”, I am not sure I can articulate these ponderings yet. You know when you incubate something in your depths that only your heart seems to comprehend yet you really want it to bridge your mind so that you can be able to name it, explain it or describe it.

I have been quietly listening to my heart and been slowly trying to understand how the love of God morphs in our heart. How He moves, dwells, captivates, betroths and makes us one with Him.

I have traveled back to the time I got saved, when I heard Him speak to me so clearly yet inaudibly, no one told me it was Him, I just knew… and since then I got acquainted to a love I never thought possible, He has let me feel the pounding of His heart, I have dwelt there, and in Him I have found “completeness”, “wholeness”   I have tasted His love, fallen in it, tested it, interacted with and proved it…It has been more than I can comprehend.

I am compelled to believe God’s heart beats with every one of His, and when we hurt He hurts too. Our oneness with Him subscribes Him to our hurts and pain.

Most of the pain God allows is for our chastening, and chastening dispels and cuts off the degree of our human weakness [pride, selfishness, greed, vanity, unfaithfulness…….] to create space for more of Him, that He may dwell richly in us. So, if you’re being chastened, don’t be disheartened. Take courage, He’s with you! He’ll never leave you nor forsake you.

probably you’re reading this and have never experienced His love, or you’ve searched for love in the wrong places may God’s love find you.I sought love in the wrong places for so long, for so long I felt hollow until God’s mercies reached me.

I have in the past been that wrong place, I have treaded on hearts without care and wounded some badly, and for this I pray to be forgiven as I have forgiven.

tick-tock-tick-tock!

Tick tock tick tock!

Looking forward to 28th of May but at the same time I feel abit anxious.

How did years fly this fast, how did the years speed close to my 27th year?

This morning I had to keep reminding myself of my last post. That when a need presses hard on my heart, I will make hard stops for prayer, I will verbalize my needs to GOD. I realized I can’t carry the weight of my world and live, there are things that I just can’t handle on my own and I have learnt to be meek enough to take them at His feet.

When I heard the enemy’s whispers of how far off I am  from my dreams, I reminded myself the promises God has spoken over my life. The very words my Father whispered to me when I didn’t know how to hope again. God is not man that He should lie, He is God, the holy one of Israel who looks to His word to perform it.It is He who said;

“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts.10″For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, And do not return there without watering the earth And making it bear and sprout, And furnishing seed to the sower and bread to the eater; 11So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.Isaiah 55:10

I will hold on to His word and promises over my life, I will speak His word over my life over and over again until it becomes one with me, until I become one with His word. And of His word He says:

“keep my words And treasure my commandments within you. 2Keep my commandments and live, And my teaching as the apple of your eye. 3Bind them on your fingers; Write them on the tablet of your heart. Proverbs 7:2

I have stickers all over my bedroom of His RHEMA word, because His word gives me life, sustains me,  replenishes me, edifies me and builds me up.

So, my birthday is almost here, and I will take my notebook and pen and write down all of His gifts, I will chronicle His mercies, His goodness over my life, I will write all that I am grateful for. He has been more than gracious.

To my FATHER, who intricately wrought me in my mother’s womb, I love YOU more than any advancement I can make in life, than any gift You can give me, I love You than life itself. Thank you for 26th year and I pray for a 27th full of You!

Beloved daughter!
