For your Maker is your Husband—the Lord of hosts is His name—and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer; the God of the whole earth He is called.
Only The Infinite Can Know The Infinite!
Developing My AWE-GOD With An Attitude Of Gratitude!
Oh Infinite AWE-GOD. I am so grateful for YOU. It is amazing how YOU know everything in my heart, before I think or act, YOU know. You know every motive to everything I do. The thing I am so grateful for today is that YOU care about what YOU know. YOU care enough to by Your Holy Spirit keep me perfectly aligned with YOUR righteousness, YOUR purposes and YOUR Kingdom Will for me. Thank You Jesus. Thank You Father God! Thank You Holy Spirit! I am grateful.
Only The Infinite Can Know The Infinite! God knows the flimsiness of every pretext and never accepts the poor excuses given for sinful conduct, since He knows perfectly the reason for it. God knew us utterly before we knew Him and called us to Himself in the full knowledge of everything that was against us. A.W.Tozer
victorious voyage With a Great God in seasonal time tours
This fast and this time apart from my "social media ministry" is truly opening my eyes to what You want me to step into this next season. I have some letting go and growing to do when it comes to The Kingdom of God, my real home, the place where I do belong forever. You want to increase in me and I need to decrease in my reliance on my human condition. Finite giving into Infinite! I also realize it is all about Your Kingdom too. For so long I have wanted more of YOU and Less of Me, but now, I feel you stretching that, in fact I can see that this next season of my life, You will be teaching me to let go of this world in my heart, completely and be ALL-In with the Kingdom of God, where I belong. This fast and this time apart is truly showing me the lack I have in that area. It is time to be fully invested in my real home, The Kingdom of God, to be not only all in with YOU, but all in with my citizenship in the Kingdom of God. I know without a doubt, You, Holy Spirit will teach me this in my next season of this great God adventure called Salvation! AWE-GOD! I know you will teach me how to bloom here without digging my roots here, by clinging to YOU and digging my roots in kingdom soil. It seems like a paradox. How can you bloom where you are temporary planted without having roots here? Well, I know one thing that gives me hope that I can learn this and that is YOU, Lord God are the Master of Paradoxical living, where common sense is thrown out and Kingdom understanding lives. So I look forward to this new season of growth, expecting and anticipating nothing that I can comprehend, but by Your Spirit, knowing that you will help me discern the paradoxical truth and live by the miracle of Kingdom wisdom! AWE-GOD! I am Yours, I am part of the Bride of Christ. I have a home in Your Kingdom that You have gone to prepare for me. I am putting my YES on the table… I will to do Your will, to learn of Your ways.
******Ramah From God******
Ramah Word! Selah …pause, and calmly think of this :
As for your season of loneliness you have endured and chosen to grow through and learn contentment through, MommaMac, I have this to say to you today:
Isaiah 54 [a]Sing, O barren one, you who did not bear; break forth into singing and cry aloud, you who did not travail with child! For the [spiritual] children of the desolate one will be more than the children of the married wife, says the Lord.
2 Enlarge the place of your tent, and let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out; spare not; lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes,
3 For you will spread abroad to the right hand and to the left; and your offspring will possess the nations and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.
4 Fear not, for you shall not be ashamed; neither be confounded and depressed, for you shall not be put to shame. For you shall forget the shame of your youth, and you shall not [seriously] remember the reproach of your widowhood any more.
5 For your Maker is your Husband—the Lord of hosts is His name—and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer; the God of the whole earth He is called.
6 For the Lord has called you like a woman forsaken, grieved in spirit, and heartsore—even a wife [wooed and won] in youth, when she is [later] refused and scorned, says your God.
7 For a brief moment I forsook you, but with great compassion and mercy I will gather you [to Me] again.
8 In a little burst of wrath I hid My face from you for a moment, but with age-enduring love and kindness I will have compassion and mercy on you, says the Lord, your Redeemer.
9 For this is like the days of Noah to Me; as I swore that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth, so have I sworn that I will not be angry with you or rebuke you.
10 For though the mountains should depart and the hills be shaken or removed, yet My love and kindness shall not depart from you, nor shall My covenant of peace and completeness be removed, says the Lord, Who has compassion on you.
11 O you afflicted [city], storm-tossed and not comforted, behold, I will set your stones in fair colors [in antimony to enhance their brilliance] and lay your foundations with sapphires.
12 And I will make your windows and pinnacles of [sparkling] agates or rubies, and your gates of [shining] carbuncles, and all your walls [of your enclosures] of precious stones.
13 And all your [spiritual] children shall be disciples [taught by the Lord and obedient to His will], and great shall be the peace and undisturbed composure of your children.
14 You shall establish yourself in righteousness (rightness, in conformity with God's will and order): you shall be far from even the thought of oppression or destruction, for you shall not fear, and from terror, for it shall not come near you.
15 Behold, they may gather together and stir up strife, but it is not from Me. Whoever stirs up strife against you shall fall and surrender to you.
16 Behold, I have created the smith who blows on the fire of coals and who produces a weapon for its purpose; and I have created the devastator to destroy.
17 But no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall show to be in the wrong. This [peace, righteousness, security, triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord [those in whom the ideal Servant of the Lord is reproduced]; this is the righteousness or the vindication which they obtain from Me [this is that which I impart to them as their justification], says the Lord.
Isaiah 54:1 Although this chapter is primarily intended to express Zion's joy over redemption, it has also a very personal, long-neglected, and often overlooked message for women—the lonely, the disappointed, the childless, the widow. It has all the glorious confidence and assurance, the incentive and understanding, for which feminine hearts have longed throughout the ages! Every woman who will read it every week for a year with receptive heart and mind will find herself not only spiritually prepared for her own childlessness or widowhood, should it come, but also supplied with rich treasure with which to address the similar needs of countless other aching hearts to whom the Holy Spirit is here speaking.

My Thoughts About This = Miraculous Musings! J
Amazing Promises! Thank You Father God! Peace, righteousness, security triumph over opposition, this is our heritage as YOUR children. You are our vindicator, there is no greater. You are my justification, there is no better. The very thing that is closest to our mom's heart apart from YOU, being 1st Lord Jesus is our children, our grandchildren and our spiritual children and this promise I will stand in for them. Great shall be their peace. Without peace, nothing in life can be accomplished. Peace is so necessary, our soul at rest so our mind can function and our spirit be led into the Sovereign Sway of God. My loneliness has been great in this season of my life, sometimes more than I could humanly bear. Not knowing why YOU moved us out of the ministry at Ft. Benning, so quickly disturbed my peace as I leaned upon my own understanding and tried to make finite sense out of the Infinite. I am looking to YOU. I am desiring with all my heart Jesus to be content here, to bloom here where YOU have placed me. Jesus!
Isaiah 48: 1-11 "And now listen to this, family of Jacob, you who are called by the name Israel:
Who got you started in the loins of Judah, you who use God's name to back up your promises and pray to the God of Israel? But do you mean it? Do you live like it? You claim to be citizens of the Holy City; you act as though you lean on the God of Israel, named God-of-the-Angel-Armies. For a long time now, I've let you in on the way I work: I told you what I was going to do beforehand, then I did it and it was done, and that's that. I know you're a bunch of hardheads, obstinate and flint-faced, So I got a running start and began telling you what was going on before it even happened. That is why you can't say, 'My god-idol did this.' 'My favorite god-carving commanded this.' You have all this evidence confirmed by your own eyes and ears. Shouldn't you be talking about it? And that was just the beginning. I have a lot more to tell you, things you never knew existed. This isn't a variation on the same old thing. This is new, brand-new, something you'd never guess or dream up. When you hear this you won't be able to say, 'I knew that all along.' You've never been good listeners to me. You have a history of ignoring me, A sorry track record of fickle attachments— rebels from the womb.
But out of the sheer goodness of my heart, because of who I am, I keep a tight rein on my anger and hold my temper. I don't wash my hands of you. Do you see what I've done? I've refined you, but not without fire. I've tested you like silver in the furnace of affliction. Out of myself, simply because of who I am, I do what I do. I have my reputation to keep up. I'm not playing second fiddle to either gods or people. I claim to be Yours, but do I constantly-consistenly live like I am?
My Thoughts About This = Miraculous Musings! J
Could our suffering be because of this very thing, because it burns off the fickle attachments of our heart to this world, a place where we don't belong. I have ignored YOU, Lord, so many times. You spoke in my life, I acted like I had not even heard it. I have had really fickle attachments to this world and all my plans in it. You have spoken to me, I need to be talking about it, living it and being ALL In with You and Your Word. . I claim to be Yours, but do I constantly-consistently live like I am? So many times I cried out to you, not understanding the suffering I was seeing and experiencing. This helps me understand, I see it now as part of YOUR Longsuffering with us, with our human condition. It is Your way of reaching our full focus, pulling us in Holy Alignment with YOU, fully facing us to You. I am not a good listener, I am very distracted by the "things" of this life. Please don't stop talking to me, help me learn to be a better, more focused listener Holy Spirit. Strip me of the things that keep my focus here and not on the Kingdom where I belong. I belong to YOU, I belong there, this is not my home.

Building 429 Where I Belong
I am breathing, but am I alive?
I am not home yet, this is not where I belong. Take this world, give me Jesus!
Are the walls falling down around you? Jesus is an assurance that does not crash in, always strong. Live in Him
Feel lost in this world!? This is not where you belong. Accept Jesus. He is your future, your hope!
Breathing? But are you alive? This is not your home. Accept Jesus. He is your future and hope!
This is not where I belong. I have a future and a hope in Jesus. I will bloom here where I am planted, but my life roots are in Kingdom soil, because of my true future and hope, I will be found in Jesus.

Verse Of The Day@biblegateway.com
Ecclesiastes 11:5 "As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother's womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things." NIV
Notes From Listening To Ecclesiastes 11. I learned this past weekend that Ecclesiastes was written by Solomon during the time he was backsliding away from God. It is so amazing that God used him during this time to speak to all of us. AWE-GOD!
Cast your bread upon the water… you don't know what disaster will come on the earth. As you do not know the path of the wind… how can you understand the work of God… let not your hands be idle. Light is sweet, it pleases the eyes to see the sun. Remember the joy and the days of darkness, everything to come is meaningless. Follow the ways of your heart and what your eyes see, God will bring you to judgement. Banish anxiety, cast off the troubles of your body for youth and vigor are meaningless.
My Thoughts About This = Miraculous Musings! J
It is funny how he was seeing that everything he strove for in his youth when he got into his older years was meaningless. I like the reference to idle hands, how it ends up to bite you in the end. We can't understand the work of God and it is a waste of time to worry over what is seen, because God is working in the unseen, not the seen and when He does bring it forth we are so blinded by our human condition being wrapped up in trying to understand that we can't enjoy the fruit of God's labor. Everything to come is meaningless on this earth, so don't cling to things here, enjoy them while you can but hold them in lose hands, because this is not our home.
Holy Spirit Inspired…. He speaks, I listen and obey… Thank you for teaching Me!
Galatians 1:12 (NLT) I received my message from no human source, and no one taught me. Instead, I received it by direct revelation from Jesus Christ.

Luke 24:13-24 The Road to Emmaus
13-16That same day two of them were walking to the village Emmaus, about seven miles out of Jerusalem. They were deep in conversation, going over all these things that had happened. In the middle of their talk and questions, Jesus came up and walked along with them. But they were not able to recognize who he was. 17-18He asked, "What's this you're discussing so intently as you walk along?" They just stood there, long-faced, like they had lost their best friend. Then one of them, his name was Cleopas, said, "Are you the only one in Jerusalem who hasn't heard what's happened during the last few days?" 19-24He said, "What has happened?" They said, "The things that happened to Jesus the Nazarene. He was a man of God, a prophet, dynamic in work and word, blessed by both God and all the people. Then our high priests and leaders betrayed him, got him sentenced to death, and crucified him. And we had our hopes up that he was the One, the One about to deliver Israel. And it is now the third day since it happened. But now some of our women have completely confused us. Early this morning they were at the tomb and couldn't find his body. They came back with the story that they had seen a vision of angels who said he was alive. Some of our friends went off to the tomb to check and found it empty just as the women said, but they didn't see Jesus."

My Thoughts About This = Miraculous Musings! J
The two disciples walking the road to Emmaus said, we had our hopes up, to them the situation was over, they were no longer hoping. Jesus was right there with them, they did not recognize Him. They did not look beyond the situation with hope, the death of Jesus was their endgame, they did not look further or hope further than the earth, the finite to the Infinite! We must look past the finite and see the Infinite, we must look past this world and see Jesus, see His Kingdom and hope beyond here to where we belong!
25 And [Jesus] said to them, O foolish ones [sluggish in mind, dull of perception] and slow of heart to believe (adhere to and trust in and rely on) everything that the prophets have spoken! 26 Was it not necessary and [h]essentially fitting that the Christ (the Messiah) should suffer all these things before entering into His glory (His majesty and splendor)? Amplified Bible
My Thoughts About This = Miraculous Musings! J
This is what needs to change in me, my faith needs to be grounded by belief, so no matter what is happening in the situations around me, I have a sharpened perception of Kingdom purposes in play, a discernment that is steadfast upon a complete reliance, trust and belief in My KING, My Jesus and His way, His truth, His Infinite Life. I lean too much into the finite, I need to learn to lean into the Sovereign Sway of the Kingdom of God. This is not my home, my home is the Kingdom of God. I need to change this Lord, I see it now. I need to pull up the rest of my roots from this earth, and be fully vested in Your Kingdom. The completely You are asking for is not only in my relationship with YOU, but my relationship to Your Kingdom, where I do belong. Help me Jesus, change me Jesus. I am the one on the Emmaus Road, walking beside YOU in Your presence sharing my shattered faith because of what I see, not WHOM I see. Help me see YOU, Jesus in the All of my everything and be ALL-IN with Your Kingdom. More of You, less of me, more of Your Kingdom, less of this world! I have always hoped that, more of YOU, less of me, but never tagged into my hope, more of Your Kingdom, less of this world. Let it be so!
Excerpt From Streams In The Desert By L.B. Cowman
http://wisdomhunters.com/ Boyd Bailey
"You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water. I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory. Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you." Psalm 63:1-3
The God of the universe looks for those who would be with Him. The Lord longs for His children to take time to experience His tender loving presence. Almighty God is not needy, but wants His creation to come before Him in humble dependence. He knows prayer is what's best for those He bought with His son's blood. Generosity toward God in daily doses of solitude and communion are the wisest gift. Our presence gratifies God.
Like an earthly father revels in the joy of being close to his precious child, so our heavenly Father smiles to see us—His children—sit next to Him. The grace of God is not garnered with a drive-by life. Rather, when we park our lives in His presence and turn off the engine of our activity, we activate His perspective in our heart and mind. We invest in intimacy with our heavenly Father in order to fulfill His agenda in our daily calendar.
"For day after day they seek me out; they seem eager to know my ways, as if they were a nation that does what is right and has not forsaken the commands of its God. They ask me for just decisions and seem eager for God to come near them." Isaiah 58:2
Furthermore, be careful not to slip into a routine of perfunctory prayers that miss the heart of your Master. Your generosity toward Jesus with your time, doesn't buy you time to do your own thing. Rather, you engage with Christ, so that He can love you to better understand His heart, and embrace His better way. By exposing your life to the Lord, He bathes your behavior with a body wash of grace and holiness.
Your generosity toward God in your time with Him can take on a variety of applications. Maybe you commune with Christ as you walk alone in a stoic cathedral, or perhaps you celebrate Jesus in raucous worship with other Christ followers at Sunday church services. You may engage Him as you stroll in your neighborhood, sit by a quiet fire, rest by a bubbling creek, or as you watch His heavenly handiwork in a brilliant sunrise or sunset. Above all else, be still, know He is God, be loved by Him, and then love on His behalf!
"He says, "Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth." Psalm 46:10
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I long to give you my time, to be loved by You and to love.
