Here I am sitting at the computer this morning looking at the blank screen before me upon which I have not written words for nearly half a year. Its a little bit scary to be here in this quiet spot.
Quiet, because no words have been recorded for so long and quiet because it is quiet here at home…alone. A rarity it is to have a few hours of alone time before me!
But God…God has been faithful to scribe my heart with His word and I have been learning to hear His Voice in the busy and oh, so different life He has ushered me into.
Faith takes different twists and turns in the King’s River. The River moves and flows and is full of currents and eddies and for those on shore watching, the “River people” are never in the same place. If I were to be doing everything the same here and now as I was when my circumstances were different then I need to question whether or not I am lead by the whisper of the Holy Spirit.
I loved when I blogged and wrote regularly, sharing all the Lord was revealing and teaching me, and yes, I have missed my time here. But…but God has me in His River and I cannot stay in the same place. His words continue to pour into my heart and while I don’t seem to have had the time to write them down, the Lord has given me people who I can share face to face, heart to heart with. No words have been wasted, they have just taken on a different venue as God scribes His word on my heart and then gives opportunity for me to speak them.
He is fully acquainted with every area of our lives and knows the deepest desires of our hearts. There is no good thing He will withhold from us and when we learn to yield, surrender and abandon ourselves to Him, He strengthens us with nothing less than His own mighty strength. Our hearts are prepared for the dwelling of the Son-King and the life of Christ will be evident through our own as we walk and live by faith in the power of God.
We are one with Him. Jesus has filled us with the fullness of Himself and we lack nothing. We have been made full having come to fullness of life in Christ. We are filled with the fullness of the complete Godhead and nothing is missing or lacking in our growth.
Because we have been made full, there are no empty spaces.
Are we living with eyes wide open so we see and know with the eyes of our heart, the immeasurable, unlimited and surpassing greatness of His power IN and FOR us who believe?
The lives we live, day in and day out, yielded to the Spirit of God will express and reflect the fullness of the Godhead through our broken but surrendered vessels.
We are whole and complete in Him and our true lives are found in Him.
Our true life is Him!
Are you learning to lose your life only to find everything you need is (in) Him?
MEL THOMPSON says
So good to read (and hear) your thoughts once more. I once read that Peripheral Vision enables us to be aware of our surroundings while remaining focused on our destination. Knowing you from a distance has certainly let me know that you have “peripheral vision”!
As some have said, “You don’t need to know where you’re going if you know the One who does. And dear friend, YOU do KNOW the ONE!
Jeannie Pallett says
Mel, thanks for being such a great encourager. Truly, you have blessed me over the years and I appreciate your words of wisdom always. I do know the ONE and along with the knowing comes great TRUST! Bless you.
Mary Gemmill says
What a treat to see some words from You, Jeannie.
We are at very similar places in our journeys through life and faith.
My heart agrees: We are one with Him. Jesus has filled us with the fullness of Himself and we lack nothing. We have been made full having come to fullness of life in Christ. We are filled with the fullness of the complete Godhead and nothing is missing or lacking in our growth
God bless you.
I hope you will get to write again before too long.
Jeannie Pallett says
Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and your heart with me Mary over the years. I have just sat down now to write a bit…stay tuned!
