My Words

My child
​My words
that
I have given you
whether
written or spoken
that you share
with those around you
and those
you serve
joyfully
whether
listened to
or read
have
the inbuilt ability
to change
and
impact
these lives
forever

T​he words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and
they are life. ​Jesus – (John 6:63​)

The Void

Without You Heavenly Father
life has a void.
Thank You Father,
that
as You have filled
the void
in our lives,
today
we ask that
as we serve,
through us,
we will help You fill the void
in those
You are calling,
those You are restoring,
and those
who You love,
In Jesus’ name,
Amen

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as
you trust in Him. – Romans 15:13 (NIV)

My Voice

Precious children, you have heard, recognized, and responded
to My voice of hope, comfort, and grace. Many are waiting
to hear the same voice from Me, their caring Shepherd.
Today, as we together serve those I have called you to,
you will be to them, My voice of hope, comfort, and grace.
I have chosen you for this from the beginning.

Heavenly Father, for the privilege of presenting Your voice
on earth, we are grateful,
in Jesus’ name, Amen.

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow
me … you have not chosen me, but I have chosen you. –
John 10:27; John 15:16

Together

My chosen ones
the delicate blending
of my creation is proof
that
it makes no difference
how often you do what
you do
or how good you are
at what you do
without
My companionship
and blending
it will never
produce
​My ​grace
or
​My ​
beauty

others flourish
as we serve
together

For apart from me you can do nothing.- John 15:5

Grateful

Grateful

to live to see
another day
to appreciate
its worth
to anticipate
what each minute holds
as we share its value
with expectant lives
around us
floods our hearts
with gratitude
and grace
thank You
Heavenly Father
Amen!

I will sing aloud of Your mercy in the morning … I will tell
of all the marvelous things You have done. Psalm 59:16/Psalm 9:1
