The Wind

Posted by Yona on Wednesday, August 24, 2011, In : Poetry ... Prose 

As I sit outside on my swing, the L-RD comes to meet me. I hear His voice in the wind. The rustling starts out soft and builds to a huge swoosh overhead. I look up and see the leaves dance on the tree branches. The cooled air moves through the hairs on my skin. The L-RD speaks as He encircles me with His presence:

No object in nature goes untouched. When I come over you, there is no part of your life that I do not know, touch, and fill with my best desires for you. You are covered.

Peace ...

When the L-RD Speaks

Posted by Yona on Monday, August 22, 2011, In : Poetry ... Prose 

In the quiet, the L-RD speaks. He whispers His truth to our open ears. We filter His words through our present life and our emotions. Yet, distractions can cause us to half listen. Our hearing depends on our attentiveness, our willingness to clear our mind. We can see His Word for what it is and accept it wholly and completely. His Spirit is our direction and calls us into a righteous walk without fail. His presence is constant, His teaching is wise. He brings peace and rest to our souls. O...

Childlike Faith

Posted by Yona on Thursday, August 18, 2011, In : Walking with Him 

When I was a little girl, I was told stories like:

“If you swallow a seed, a tree will grow in your stomach; and if you swallow gum, it will stay in your stomach for seven years.”

Silly stories? Perhaps.  

What about these stories?

“Put your tooth under your pillow and the tooth fairy will come to leave you some money.”

“You better go to sleep or Santa won’t bring you any toys.”

“Don’t go in that room or the boogie man is going to get you.”

We’ve all heard ...

If I boast about anything, it will be about my Abba, the Creator of the Universe, the Creator of me, the One and Only true G-d.

The L-rd drew me unto Himself as a young girl. My introduction to the L-rd, prayer, and His Scriptures was through the women in my family.

He filled me with His Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) at the age of fifteen and has walked with me, teaching me ever since.

His ministry in me has been to use the many gifts He has freely given in order to testify of Him.

His gifts have been plenty, from equipment to do the task at hand to experiences of trials and joys. All that He gives is a gift, treasures of learning, growing, and drawing close to Him.

For me, the greatest of these gifts is to know Him intimately. Without Him, I am powerless against my enemies and fruitless for His kingdom. I am nothing apart from Him.

Through my acceptance of Messiah Yeshua's atonement, I received cleansing of my sins and a place in His Kingdom.

It is because of the Almighty's Chesed, mercy and loving kindness, to me that I am able to testify of Him, share the good news, and pour out His Chesed into my neighbor.

And so I boast about Him, because it IS all about my Abba and the salvation given through His Son.
