"At the Center of His Heart"



February 17th, 2014

You are at the center of God's heart.
There are many things going on around you, in your life,
in the work you do and what you want to do.
But those things are all peripheral to Him!
What He cares about most is you!

He wants you to know
how much you're worth,
how much He loves you,
and how He sees you;
He wants you to be healed,
and He wants you to be free.

He knows what you're feeling, and He feels it, too.
He cries when you cry and suffers when you suffer.
He longs for you to see His tears of love for you...
and when you begin to see His tears of love for you,
it will wipe your tears away.

"Shadow"



April 19th, 2012

God says,

"Beloved, I remember you.
I see you as you are,
but you cannot see who you are.
You can only see the surface,
but I see inside.

"You are in pain, My beloved.
Come away from here.
Come away with Me.
I will heal your heart,
and you will see your beauty."

"My Favorite Place"

"My Favorite Place"

November 24th, 2011

You will always be Father God's little girl! You will never grow too big to sit on His lap. You will never be too dirty for His arms to hug you. He will never be too busy to pick you up and hold you. He will always be a place where you can find rest and comfort. His love for you will never change.

Will you come let Him embrace you and adore you forever?

"I will turn their mourning into gladness;
I will give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow."

- Jeremiah 31:13

"Not Guilty"

Not Guilty

January 4th, 2011

Maybe in the "in between" moments when you let down their emotional guard, maybe you have moments of despair and sorrow because of where you are and what you're doing. Maybe you feel guilty about it, like you have no one to blame but yourself because you went into this work on your own decision.

But God sees and He says you are "Not Guilty"! He loves you and He doesn't blame you. He doesn't want you to feel guilty; He just wants you to be free! He wants you to know His love for you and to know your own worth.

You already know the darkness of the place you're in, and you know how you got into it. The weight of blaming yourself gives you nowhere to turn to, no relief or from that darkness.

But God is saying, "No, not guilty!"

Because He died for you on the Cross to take away your guilt.

"Be Free!"

August 4th, 2011

He Himself bore our sins in His body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by His wounds you have been healed.

- 1 Peter 2:24

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

- Galatians 5:1
