The Lifting

Outer Banks seagull, lifted and free

A bird soaring high above the earth, lifted by the winds.

A leaf fluttering and flying, lifted by the breeze.

A massive airplane defying its weight, lifted by the wind over and under its wings.

Our spirits, when God rushes through, with His Holy Spirit wind to lift us.

The feeling and miracle of flight, the relief and freedom of forgiveness in Christ

Be blessed today. Know the love and forgiveness of Christ in your heart. Let the lifting of your spirit commence. Love, Lisa

Our Shepherd

 

Trusting sheep in County Kerry, Ireland

“He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young.” – Isaiah 40:11

 “When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd. So he began teaching them many things.” – Mark 6:34

“For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; ‘he will lead them to springs of living water. ’And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.’ “- Revelation 7:17

“The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.” – Psalm 23:1

Praise God that He loves us and cares for us so well. No matter what comes, He is there to find us, to rescue us, to feed us, to lead us to a place of peace. Blessings, Lisa

The Turning

The wind. The clouds. The change. The turning. How I love it.

I spent a glorious afternoon yesterday watching, feeling, praying, loving the wonder that is our God. The turning of the season was a thing of beauty. I tried to document it so that I would always remember.

Before the turning. Sunny, humid, 85 degrees fahrenheit, still.
The gathering clouds of the approaching cold front. Occasional breeze, humid air, 85 degrees F.
Approaching cold front, gusty winds, temperature drops to 75 degrees

This morning, breezy, beautiful, 50 degrees Fahrenheit

I pray that you know the height and depth, the strength, the force, the power of Christ’s love for you. He made this beautiful world, for you. He made beautiful plants and animals, for you. He made laughter and sunshine and wind, for you. He went to the cross and paid for every one of yours and my sins. He is waiting by the right hand of God, for you.

Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved. The turning.

Praise be to God above, Lisa

Peace Despite

Rossbeigh Beach, County Kerry

Peace despite the raging sea, the howling wind, uncertainty

Peace despite the circumstance, the strong what-ifs, the hurt within

Peace, it comes as gentle dove, as quiet voice, as ever there

Peace His Name is Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Risen Lamb

May you find the peace that passes understanding, resting in the arms of a great and unchanging Savior. Blessings, Lisa
