Hi! This is just a little FYI that I am sharing with you about several posts that I will be adding to this blog in the coming days and weeks – the essence of which will be bible teaching and sharing experiences that have to do with “These Three Things” ….. Personal Worship, Understanding and Placing the Value on God’s Word that is truly there , and Praying in the Spirit. I don’t think that I can over state the value of these three precious things God has brought to my life for how much they have helped develop the sensitivity in my spirit to hear.
I will be starting these posts with a study about “personal worship” – with teaching and sharing about having a very personal – “one on one” time of worship between you and God – something He wants from every one of His children. It’s an open avenue for Him to touch the deepest part of your being.
I’m not starting the study itself in this post, but below I want to share with you one of the many devotional writings and poems that I have received from the Holy Spirit – more often than not – I begin to HEAR these in my spirit at times when I am alone and worshipping God and our Lord Jesus.
THE DREAM OF FREEDOM
Note: This writing was given to me for a dear friend – in whom I have been blessed to witness a remarkable growth and maturing of gifts into the call that God has for her – but it is also “an invitation” to any and all who will read it and “believe” that God has more for them too.
The dream of freedom – lifting up as it were on eagle’s wings …..
The dream of healing – oh wonderful marvelous thing…….
Closer to Him who loves me, now I’ll be ……
Free to fly – and free to see – with the vision that He gives me!
Heavenly dream – I can only imagine …..
What soaring with Him – yet still down here – could be!
(And now – I’m thinking …… and writing…………….. still held captive by Him and all that He is doing.)
As I watch you, I think of how incredible all of this is …….
And – “Why do I not also want to fly?
Is it a laziness in me – or did He put this burning that is within me ……..?
To stay down here and help others as they dream of and aspire to get there
Where they can be free (still being here – and yet soaring with Him.)
Oh Jesus – I love the fellowship with You – the spiritual gifts and my call – And if that call keeps me ……
On the ground where I can see …….
All the marvelous things You are doing in others – then so let it be!
For this passion that burns within me – is to be –
Here and now – exactly “where and what” You made me to be!
For I know that one day I will fly there too …..
Glory, oh glory – what a dream, Jesus, I have from You!
(And now as I am winding down, one last thought comes to me – an awareness that You gave each of those who love You their very own dream – and as you and I take that dream and spend time with Him – we will do exploits …. and we will indeed fly like the eagle – right here with Him!)
