Beyond

Beyond

You flew to me out over the sea

Rising with a storming gale

Spreading out Your ancient arms

I saw You through the veil

Glorious Your light was blinding

Yet as I took Your hand

I settled on a floating cloud

And there You made me stand

Holding each and every breath

As fear rose from deep inside

My heart stopping all at once

Looking down at the crashing tide

You said softly “Just trust Me”

As I looked into Your loving eyes

I knew my heart was about to burst

As we soared beyond the skies

Only He

Only He

 

the winds soared like God swiped an angry hand

trees fell into crumbling slabs of splinters

rained pounded sideways flipping the mist

the clouds now a falling soggy fog

the silence shattered with creaking branches

leaves torn grow as a shroud over the cold ground

amidst it all a clean freshness rose

along with a sweet childish soul

as I stood face up asking once again why

the storm drenched me to my shivering skin

hiding the tears only He could fathom

Dear Lord…

Dear Lord, please be with my friend today, she’s like a sister to me. She’s been there for me so many times I can’t count. She’s the most loving kind giving, God fearing, God worshiping, God loving and God giving person I know, and today what I have feared for years myself… happened to her.

I can’t begin to imagine her pain. I can’t begin to say the right words, I can’t even fathom the hurt she feels right now.

All I know is she is the last person on earth who deserved this.

I know for sure You will hold her in Your heart, if only I ask. Therefore I ask.

Wrap her in Your Love, drown her in Your Peace, and give her Your Almighty Strength.

Amen.

He Shines

He Shines

 

Flyin’ like a bird in a breeze

Or hopeless and on my knee’s

He’s there, He shines so bright

Darkness runs from His light

 

Sailin’ across deep blue seas

Or problems comin’ in threes

He’s here, He shines so bright

Darkness screams in flight

 

He loves me deeper than the sea

He loves you just as deeply

I sing His name today and tomorrow

I sing in praise no matter the sorrow

 

Soarin’ on His wings of Grace

Or hiding the shame on my face

He’s there, He shines so bright

Darkness flees in fright

 

Racing across warm dunes of gold

Or crawling through freezing cold

He’s here, He shines so bright

Darkness hides from His sight

 

He loves me deeper than the sea

He loves you just as deeply

I sing His name today and tomorrow

I sing in praise no matter the sorrow

 

He fought the darkness and overcame

He wore the scars of all our shame

He willed us to follow His light

He’s here, see how He still shines bright

 

He loves me deeper than the sea

He loves you just as deeply

I sing His name today and tomorrow

I sing in praise no matter the sorrow

JESUS SAVES!!!

So for those of you who know me, and follow my blog, actually reading what I write about, I’ve been questioning something for some time now.

I’ve been questioning whether or not we are to pray TO Jesus, and I’ve been asking God to show me, or tell me the answer. I had a fear inside that we are NOT to put Jesus, Yeshuah, HIGHER than God in that respect. So for some time now, I’ve been seeking answers.

Well, the other night, I think I was given the answer. It did not come in the form of a deep voice speaking to me. Instead, it came to me in a nightmare, one that scared the snot out of me… but it showed me CLEARLY that even if we shouldn’t pray to Jesus INSTEAD OF GOD THE FATHER, there IS POWER IN HIS NAME! Great power, and that the use of his name JESUS, instead of Yeshuah, is OK. Both of these thoughts have worried me, that our corruption over the generations and language change of Yeshuah to Jesus, has always struck me as total DISRESPECT, but even that seemed to be cleared up for me when I woke from this nightmare. As some of you may know, I’ve struggled for years with violent pain and sad filled nightmares. MOST of which eventually come true… so with that in mind…

Here is what happened. It is the TRUTH, for I NEVER lie when it comes to God and Jesus, YHVY and Yeshuah…so just know this is exactly what happened….

I was being tortured by demons. Full out tortured, to the point of what my mind knew was pure evil rape. I was being held above my bed, floating somehow, and stretched out spread eagle… while they tortured me.  But in my mind, I INSTANTLY knew that if I banished these demons in JESUS NAME, they would be gone. SO I opened my mouth, to scream, but it was like the demons were stretching my mouth and blocking me from articulating the words. It took me several tries to formulate the words but I eventually managed to scream…”BE GONE…IN JESUS NAME I DEMAND YOU BE GONE…IN JESUS NAME I BANISH YOU!”

And BAMM… I woke up and was lying peacefully in my bed. I lay there wide awake for half an hour or so…just contemplating what had happened, and it made me realize just HOW POWERFUL JESUS’ NAME really is. And it made me realize that the use of the name Jesus, rather than Yeshuah, is just fine.

There is POWER in His Name alone, let alone realizing HE IS GOD’S OWN SON! He must have been given GREAT POWER if HE truly can banish evil demons. You may think to yourself, that oh, Debi, it was just a nightmare…but I kid you not, these were demons. And since I’ve been writing this blog, I’ve been told by several people to be careful, because evil will be looking for me, and when ever any one gets closer to God, evil tries even harder to destroy us. I believe it’s true, that the more I write on this blog about God and Jesus and the Holy Spirit, with 800 people following me, a lot of which do NOT believe as I do, I truly believe evil is looking to destroy me. I’m reaching too many people for it not to have noticed me! I think I may be drawing them, and believe me, I will turn CLOSER AND CLOSER TO GOD because of it!!! THEY WILL NOT SWAY ME! or scare me! FOR GOD SO LOVES ME!!!! THIS I KNOW!

SO…keep that in mind folks, when you are struggling with anything hard, or wondering why evil has come into your life…keep JESUS in mind. He is the SON of the MORNING, and believe me, by morning I was NEVER HAPPIER to have HIM on my side. He is also the KING of the ANGELS, so pray to HIM whenever you need angels to watch over you, or someone else. 

I have a dear friend who has told me repeatedly when I feel pain physically, or am ill…to simply say “BY JESUS’ STRIPES I AM HEALED!” And THIS thought alone was what reminded me during my nightmare that JESUS SAVES!! IT is not just a cute colloquium or silly phrase…HE SAVES!!! HE TRULY DOES!!!

THANK YOU JESUS!!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU JESUS!!! YOU THE MAN! :)

A Season in Stone

A Season in Stone

sentinels standing silently

cold and unyielding

guarding without menace

yet exuding fear

within a perimeter

between smiles

cross-thatched in denial

crisscrossed in an empty threat

for no one escapes

and few desire entry

where wilting flowers once brave

abide a cold shoulder

supported by shabby tufts

echoing a span

of rapture and will

scorn and warmth

with wisdom learned

perchance passed on

perhaps wanting time

just dust in the wind

a dwarf in a universe

shortsighted and slighted

suffering instinct and passion

where a burden with weight

became a mockery of cherish

much like the stone

carved with a date

to exemplify an entire soul

already seeping softly

into the freshly turned dirt

Let it go… Let God

Finding forgiveness from one day to the next

in myself and for others is as hard as it gets.

There isn’t much in life that appears to be harder

even death can be easier to handle and find peace.

Losing a job, a friend, even a child lost in time

seems easier to process than forgiving someone.

Truly forgiving, deep down, letting it go to never return

makes us greater, stronger, able to rise above the pettiness.

Yet today I don’t seem to be able to find it in myself once again

therefore I pray, ask for strength and hope God will do the work.
