Rejoicing on the Altar

So I was sitting here this morning talking with the Lord, when He asked me this question,

"Amy, do you really need someone else?"



So, just to fill you in a bit, so you have some context as to why the question was asked, I will share a bit more.

You see I was pouring out my heart to the Lord about (what I believed was) my need for someone to come along side me in my (ministry) life before I could fully blossom and flourish in the call He had for my life.
*(mind you this is not the first time I have had this conversation with the Lord -lol- none the less as always and ever so graciously with immense love, the Lord continued to converse with me as if it were the first time)
When I was done (whining) pouring out my heart to the Lord, He asked me the question,

"Amy, do you really need someone else?"

My answer? 😊
"No. Lord you know I don't." 💕 "You have become to me, all that I need."  💗

Then the Lord reminded me of a dream I had years ago, 

Where He spoke very clearly to me about my call. It wasn't the first time and it wasn't the last.
However it was very powerful.

After I was reminded of that dream Holy Spirit began to bring to mind a wealth of scripture that lifted me up as I lay on my altar

This first scripture is one of my favorites. I speak this one daily.

Galatians 2:20  "I have been crucified with Yeshua Messiah and I no longer live, but Messiah lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God,who loved me and gave himself for me."

Luke 9:23 "Then Yeshua was saying to everyone, “If anyone wants to follow Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross every day, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it."

John 12:24 "Amen, amen I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls to the earth and dies, it remains alone. But if it dies, it produces much fruit."


John 3:30  "He must increase, while I must decrease.”

You see, (being transparent here) I am on the downhill side of my natural life. I have lived through a great deal (of horrific traumas) here on earth. I only have the good Lord to credit for my life. 👣 He has been with me every step of the way! He has turned every tragedy into a victory! Psalm 34:19


So here I am still and I am continually learning how to live a life of rejoicing in the grave!


Which is just another way of saying dying to ones self - in all things - every day - at all times - in every situation. - It's not always easy. 


Because, well, I am still in this natural body. 


That's when I so appreciate this beautiful scripture found in the Psalms 103:14


"For He knows our frame.

He remembers that we are but dust."

I suppose it's quite apropos that King David was one who wrote this Psalm for us. A Psalm of the attributes of our loving Heavenly Father. Our Creator.

I don't suppose King David had too many friends after Jonathon. However, you sure can tell just how much David knew and loved His Lord by his writings. 💖 💔 💕 💗 Through it all. The brokenness. The sin. The heartache. The loneliness. The repentance. The passion. The obedience. He was surely a man after God's own heart. 

Oh dear Lord, help me too be all you have created me to be. To live a life worthy of the calling I have received in Yeshua Messiah. Through you Holy Spirit. For your Glory. Help me to rejoice daily in dying to myself as I live to serve others in your love...like you!

Give Me a Heart Like Yours! 


I want a heart like yours Lord.
No other heart will do.
I need a heart like yours, Lord.
If I’m to love like you.

I want to love them like you love me.
You’re always gentle and kind.
Never boastful, proud or rude,
I want to love them like you.

You never look out for yourself Lord.
You’re always looking out for me.
You don’t keep tabs on every thing I do wrong.
You never anger easily.

I want a heart like yours Lord.
No other heart will do.
I need a heart like yours, Lord.
If I’m to love to love like you.

I want to love them like you love me.
Always being my best friend.
Never delighting when evil comes my way.
But rejoicing in the truth instead.

I want to love them like you love me.
You've never failed me yet.
You’re always there to protect me Lord.
Ever trusting; in me your hope is set.
.
I want to love them like you love me.
I want to touch them like you touch me.
I want to show them that your love is real.
I want a heart like yours, Lord.

I need a heart like yours.
Give me a heart like yours.


A heart like yours.











I love you Lord ~ AmyColleen

No More!


Silence captivates - in a loud unmanageable way
Road blocks of words - deafening stillness lay
Screaming whispers - of deepest despair
Every turn - each breath - every stare

Completely alone - in the midst of a crowd

Every touch point - loneliness surrounds 
You over there - Me over here
Alone are the lonely ones - in deepest despair


"Alone are the lonely ones in deepest despair."

Oh how I remember - I was once "the lonely one in deepest despair!"

No more!

I once felt "Alone in the midst of a crowd."

No more!

I once could not stay in a room without ambient noise of "some -kind" at all times because of the "screaming whispers" of my past! Afraid of the deafening silence!

No more!

I have been set free!


Halleluiah! By the love of Adonai! I have come to receive and know the Amazing Grace of God and come to know Yeshua our Messiah! Through him I have been set free from all the above! I no longer have to be afraid of my own thoughts.

Yes - Sometimes I feel so helpless, because as much as I remember what it was like to live in darkness and despair, and I do remember, at the same time, much of the time I feel so helpless. I feel as though I am so ill equipped to be able to adequately share with everyone just how incredibly, wonderfully, awesome, loving, gracious and beautiful the Lord was, has been and is to me.
To be able to adequately share how he lifted me up from death's door time and time again. How he put a new song in my heart!!!

Heaven Awaits


Warm, soft, strong,
His arms hold me close.
Tenderness, peace, love.
He speaks with His eyes.

Together in silence.
Face to face at last.
Tears of joy shed together.
No memory of my past.

A love to die for.
A death to live for.
The two become one.

My Lord and me. 
  
Heaven awaits.

My Wish For You

Dedicated to my precious, dear Sisters in Yeshua


My Wish For You

I wish I could take it away for you;
All the pain and torment, that seems so untrue.
I wish I could say I’ve walked down that road;
Have it be enough to lighten your load.
I want so desperately to reach out in some way,
To try my best to comfort you today.
Doing what ever is possible;
Turning time back if it were plausible.
It’s just not that easy though, I know.
As this is some where only you can go.
Even as someone who loves you so much;
It’s not mine you need, but the Master’s touch.
So I will be looking in on you through prayer.
In the morning and evening, with much care.
Trusting our good Lord to take care of you.
Believing him to see you through.
I shall do this with all of my might.
Remembering you, morning, noon and night.
Though this is so very hard for you;
Remember the Lord will always see you through.

I love you.

No One I Have Ever Known







There is no other love like Yours Lord.
It never waxes or wanes - forever consistently the same. 
(Yes I realize I doubled up there - the point)
You say what you mean. You mean what you say.
Your love is completely unconditional.
You knew who I was before I was who I am.
Still You never have left my side.
You watch over me every moment of each day. 
You watch over me all through the night.
Sing me sweet love songs while I sleep.
You're waiting for me with a smile when I awake.
You know every thought I think and every word I am about to speak, before they are even formed on my tongue.
Still You patiently sit and listen to me. I mean really listen to me, ramble on and on and on as if it were the first You had ever heard was on my heart.
You are like no one I have ever known.
Lord,You loved me so much that You wanted me to live forever with You.
That
You chose to take my place at the execution stake.
You stood in my place. Took my punishment.
So, I would not have to be punished.
So, I would not have to die.
You loved me so much.
So very much.
Lord, there is some much more.
But, basically this says it on a nutt shell.
There is no other love like Yours!
