My Little Blue Jacket

Jeremiah 33:3 (AMP)
 Call to Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things, fenced in and hidden, which you do not know (do not distinguish and recognize, have knowledge of and understand).

My summer project is to go through the Bible study questions in Beckoned by the King and write posts on my answers.  I hope you will join me and allow the Lord to show you a side of His heart and your own not previously seen.  We look through a glass darkly amen?

We are Beckoned by the King.  Can you hear Him? is the subtitle of the Bible study questions.  Questions designed to cause us to press in to His heart, listen until we hear Him speak.

I heard Him speak as I answered the question “What do you think would be the benefits of living your life according to God’s Word?”

“You will be focused Child, focused on being single minded as you learn to flow in the Spirit and live in the Spirit.  You are going to become aware of the modes of your flesh and why you act/react the way you have in certain situations.

You are ready.  You have waited long.  Waited with tears and aching heart, wanting to understand why and where the root of rejection came from.

I know you thought it was your inability to hear until you got your hearing aids, but truth is Child, the root is a result of your hearing but not understanding who was speaking.

You were walking home from school one rainy day in late November.  You were wearing your favorite blue jacket.  I know!  You loved that jacket because it gave you a feeling of summers never ending.  Your ‘ways’ had not automatically switched to ‘My Way’ when you were born again.  I knew you were still rebellious but I also knew you wanted to tell the world about Me.  You hardly even knew Me, but you were different and you knew I had done an amazing work in your heart.  You just didn’t understand because you were My brand new baby.  I loved you then and I love you now, even as I have faithfully loved you through all the years you saw through the glass darkly.

That day, the day I reveal to you now, the enemy of your soul spoke a lie into your heart.  His lie seed was planted in your heart and the soil of your heart received it.  For years it has been hidden and fenced in and you did not even know what is was.  Now I will show you.

The enemy of your soul lied to you when he planted the idea in your head that your Mother didn’t love you as much as your sisters because she had already bought them winter coats.  It was a skillfully aimed thought, neatly placed into your mind.  Unwittingly you believed it.  You believed it because you were still rebellious.

Today your heart is fully turned toward Me.  Today, all thought of rebellion has long since gone.  You know you were loved and I know your heart aches at the realization of not embracing the love of your Mother, a relationship forever ended here on earth.  She carried you deep in her heart, she loved you fiercely, wanting to protect you from feeling rejected but not understanding why you would.  She would phone you on your hard days.  The anniversary date of your abortion.  Remember?  She would call you and tell you how proud she was of you.  How much joy she had in seeing what you had done with your life because of your lifelong commitment to be faithful to Me.

The little blue jacket representing rejection has been replaced with a cloak of scarlet and purple.  You are washed in the Blood, you are part of a Royal Nation.  You are one with Me and you are one with others in the Body of Christ.  You have been accepted in the Beloved, My banner over you is Love.

The wind of time has nestled you close to My heart, listening, hearing My heartbeat of love.

You are in My embrace as I lead you in the dance.  I am the Wind in your sails blowing you home without spot or wrinkle.

You are a woman of substance.  Substance in your spirit fed by your relationship with Me.  Substance, like hot lava flowing out and touching and changing the landscape of broken hearts and lives.  Your faith has substance I am pleased.’

You are Beckoned by the King

 

With love and joy in our journey,

Jeannie

    I’m so glad that God, whom we serve, has great and mighty things in store for us. He has things for us that have been concealed from the enemy , things that are beyond our limited imagination, and things that no man can prevent us from partaking of. Continue to walk in HIS favor!

    Jeannie, you are an anointed daughter of the Most High and I so love this word from the Lord. Not long ago I had an encounter with Jesus where he replayed a childhood scene that I will be blogging about too…..He is sooooo personal!!!

    • Jeannie says

      Bless you Dixie. I have come to the conclusion that we go through what we do so we can experience the mighty power of God working in us and through us and offer hope to others. I look forward to reading your story because it is His story of grace at work in you.

    It was so refreshing to hear someone share how God actually speaks to them in their head. So many preachers, authors and websites try to say that God ONLY speaks through His Word. Thanks for sharing! I’ll have to take a peak at your book!

    • Jeannie says

      Cheryl, I am glad you sensed a refreshing in your spirit. If, as His sheep He said we would know His voice then it is up to us to pay attention to His speaking. Learning to recognize and obey His leading is key to living the victorious, abundant, overcoming life He promised!

    So glad to know that someone else (hopefully many people) carry on conversations in their head with God. He has been there with gently prodding and encouragement all my life. I am so glad that I opened my mind to hear Him. Thanks for a great blog post – your writing is beautiful…very poetic.

    Jeannie- some of this has touched a nerve.God is putting His finger on a deep rooted pain in my heart. I have just come from a monthly meeting of Christian women where the speaker spoke to us about grace to forgive.
    Mum died a year ago, and never accepted salvation. My step-dad has just gone into care in the same aged-care hospital where Mum was for 2 years before she dies, and there are lots of triggers at the moment as I visit him in there !!

    Looking at your post: The enemy of your soul lied to you when he planted the idea in your head that your Mother didn’t love you. I beleved she couldn”t show love to me because I pulled a kettle of boiling water over myself at age 3 and although it was MY fault, she withheld love from me because she blamed herself.

    Your words again>:You know you were loved and I know your heart aches at the realization of not embracing the love of your Mother, a relationship forever ended here on earth. She carried you deep in her heart, she loved you fiercely, wanting to protect you from feeling rejected but not understanding why you would.[ I’m not sure about that at all] I didn’t feel loved because she mocked the strong faith I had in the Lord from a young age- she was even jealous of it. Because she rejected the Lord it felt like she rejected ME.

    Today I can agree with you in this >: The wind of time has nestled you close to My heart, listening, hearing My heartbeat of love.

    I know God loves me, and that’s the only thing that really matters.BUT I feel the Lord is also saying that Mum DID love me, and that I feel guilty that I didn’t receive love from her. SO today I am letting that GO, with His help.
