**God always has a plan
**God is love, and shares with me

**My identity is found in HIM
**Everything falls on HOPE , FAITH, LOVE, GRACE, MERCY, and a never ending supply of all!

Pondering mind....

My pondering mind continues to run on..and on...

Father God,
What was it like for you to transform God the son in to a human form? How much did you have to give up to come here? Did you hear you tummy growl for the first time in all eternity? Did you feel what a tear felt like for the first time? As a baby, did you all ready see the shadow of the cross, and was it present through out your earthy life?  Did the Angels gasp when you disclosed your plan to them?,or did they rejoice immediately?  Although Mary was submissive to your will, did she ever doubt, or have great fear?  

Altho my mind runs on and on..I know that this holiday is not about a baby, its about your redemption plan. The great extents you went to in order to build the bridge to bring us back to you, even while in a cursed world. You are amazing! Beautiful! We are so very loved by You.  I cannot wrap my head around all that you sacrificed to bring us to you.  Only a heart of Love, Mercy, Grace, would even attempt it. Yet you did it all, while we still walked in sin.  I can not comprehend.  But I am grateful, thankful, humbled...that my King would confine himself in a human body, for no other reason than to die for me, leaving all the riches of Heaven, a truly perfect, holy, supreme being....for someone like me. Thank you, Happy Anniversary of the day your plan unfolded for man's redemption,  as the angels dance around your throne.  Your princess who loves pondering on things above!

God loves the children

Father God, 
you placed a young girl(7) in my path today, her story ripped my heart in pieces. so very beautiful and innocent in appearance, but nothing in her young mind is innocent. Sin in the world has already gotten to her.  As i looked at her, i heard you remind me how you love the children.  Even at her young age you are forming her testimony. the doors for me to help her, or bring others around her. Oh how i pray that the things she has encountered is all that she will have to, and You will show yourself to her. Protect her. Bring adults in her life that will raise her in you.  praying that you are already moving in her heart, and that she will sleep in your shadow, dreaming the things that little girls should dream.  Your princess who is sure she just met her little sister in you

traveling thru Baca

Psalm 84:5-7
Blessed are those whose strength is in you,
who have set their hearts on pilgrimage.
As they pass through the Valley of Baca,
they make it a place of springs;
the autumn rains also cover it with pools.
They go from strength to strength,
til each appears before God in Zion.

The Valley of Baca, a desolate place, dry, sadness, weary...we go in and out of it as we continue to press on towards knowing and loving the LORD more.  Not to be confused with James 1 that tells us about being tossed around like a man with a divided heart.  We have a choice in the valley to draw closer to the LORD and allow HIM to shine through us. The most amazing thing about the valley is.....others are watching us as we go through our trials, and they can see Jesus in us, even when we don't.  

On our pilgrimage, when the valleys seems to about crush us, we need to remember to ask HIM "what do you want me to learn here?" and praise HIM through it.  No its not a normal worldly thing, but we are not at home here, we belong to heaven...a heart on pilgrimage headed and pressing hard..traveling to our final destination..HOME. Traveling from strength to strength..

Lord, thanks for bringing me back here to remember the lessons you taught me in this.  I have a heart set on pilgrimage, this world is going to be uncomfortable to me, and at times i won't fit in here. But Heaven is my home, i belong to heaven...having a focus on the eternal, home with you, where this all started and will a life without end, without tears, without broken hearts, without death.  

I so needed this scripture, it seemed to pull it all together for me. your princess whose heart is set on pilgrimage

Letter to my Watchman

(blogged Bible Study is on hold, but will get back to it asap)

My Sacred Watchman,
I am humbled at the way you watch over me! Thank you. You reach much farther than my mind can comprehend. I don't know how things get so out of control, or how distance comes between us, but you are always faithful in keeping your eye on me, and never allowing me to get beyond your reach. No matter how far i get from you, You are there.

While reading through Isaiah the last couple of nights, i am forced to look at my own unfaithfulness to you. Thank you for rebuking and then reminding me of your unfailing love, your compassion that is for me. Losing hope, and forgetting what i am here for, is devastating to me and everyone i connect with.  Its hard at times to stay in the fellowship of believers when it always seems i don't measure up.  It really only matters what you think, and that i am walking in your shadow.  

I can't help but your other children struggle the same or is it just me, and the Isrealites?  Really don't hear many fess up to being like them, just alot of people with lots of instruction, and coming across as perfect in you.  

I just want to be real..real in You, real in roles as parent, wife and employee.  I love that you have your eye on my, and that I am precious to you. You never let go, you are always faithful. You are my watchman, and i am your princess who definitely loses sight of her mission way too often.

Blogged Bible Study- Ephesians 2-in the heavenly places

Ephesians 2:1-6 
 And you were  dead in the trespasses and sins  in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following  the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience— among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body  and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind.  But God, being  rich in mercy,  because of the great love with which he loved us,  even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— and raised us up with him and  seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.

Lord, in our immortality, we have so much trouble just seeing what it is you saved us from. We can quote words, but when it comes to a heart connect, we struggle. As  I read this again, I stuck fast to these few verses... While we followed your enemy the prince of the air, while we were dead in our sin, your great love made a way for us to be alive together with Christ.  How great is your love for us! Because of your grace we are saved from eternal separation from you. As hard as it is at times for me to grasp this love that you have, i can not wrap my head around the fact, that we are already raised up and seated with you in the heavenly places in Christ.  Just another awesome thing about you! You see the whole picture, you already see how it all ends, and how eternity with you begins and goes on and on..we are already seated in the heavenly places with you, in Christ.  That is quite enough for this princess, understand it fully-no, believe it-yes. Thank you Lord for saving us, and even as we followed your enemy...This GRACE, this LOVE, such MERCY...YOU alone are worthy of all my praise, what priceless gifts you have given to us, we can't comprehend.  Your princess who is now pondering on the heavenly places.
