Will You Open The Door?

“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” Revelation‬ ‭3:20‬

Jesus is alive, real, and draws people to Himself (knocking). We must put our faith in Him to receive forgiveness of our sins and be cleansed of them. This results in eternal life! It is such an amazingly simple thing, probably the most simple thing in all of existence: to trust in the God who literally created your soul. Yet, it can be so hard to get to that place of full surrender and faith. Why?

Because humans tend to trust in what they can see, and disregard what they cannot see. Our tendency is to trust in the tangible and reject the unseen and spiritual. Because of our sinful nature, we suppress the existence of God in our hearts because we can’t see Him, and put all our trust in humanistic ideologies, theories, ideas.

We all do this, every single human being. Until we come to a place where we acknowledge that God is real, He is who He says He is, and we do what He requires.

Thankfully, God is so incredibly amazing that He requires very little from us, because He Himself did all the work. He came down from Heaven, lived the perfect life we couldn’t live by following the law perfectly, and died for us a tortuous and painful death. The death that we deserve. All He requires from us? Our trust. Our faith in Him.

It takes one moment, one act of faith that sets your soul on a secured path to heaven. He is drawing you, and you must respond. This decision of whether or not a person opens the door to Jesus Christ will be the because decision in our life, and it has eternal consequences.

God is so beautiful, even though people deny Him and are children of wrath (before a person is born-again they are a child of God’s wrath) even though people deny Him and reject Him, He is still ready and willing to have a relationship with those who turn to Him! All it takes is faith in Him.

It’s as easy as letting go, humbling yourself and surrendering to the Almighty God. And when this happens, you’ll have a close, intimate, unending relationship with Jesus Himself! He’s waiting and knocking at your door, He wants you to open to Him, repent and trust in Him.

Once that door is open, it can never be shut and the Lord will keep you close to Him forever. You’ll be covered by the blood of Christ and born-again, your soul protected before you die and you’ll be taken to heaven after you die. There’s nothing greater on this earth than that. Open your door to Him (faith) and you’ll experience salvation for your soul and the true love of Christ. ♥️

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves. Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.” Romans 1:16-25♥️

The Power Belongs to God


The power will always belong to God.💫

A l w a y s.

If your life seems out of control, remember that all power in heaven and earth and under earth belongs to Him. Be comforted knowing that our God is fully capable of caring for His own people. If He’s willing to die for us, He’s willing to take care of us in our current circumstance.

He made the stars in their brilliance, the mountains in their majestic grandiosity, and also your heart in its fragility. He reigns over it all, and nothing is outside of His control.

I Just Want to be With Him

14021556_885658361540954_4214709855004362449_n

This world is beautiful, and I love living here. I love the life God gave me, and He satisfies my soul. But the closer I get to Him, the less appealing this world is. He makes everything else seem so dull in comparison. Just being in His presence hits me with such delight, joy, and a taste of Heaven; but all the while simultaneously experiencing a greater and deeper feeling of discontentedness in this world. Though He fully satisfies and fills me, there is this other part of me that becomes more and more dissatisfied and uncomfortable here. The more satisfied I am in Him, the less satisfying this world is. It’s a strong tension. Because I am both already a citizen of Heaven, but also living on earth. This world is not my home, and it only gets more and more apparent in my spirit.

This truth allows me to let everything go here, and give my whole self to God while I’m walking on this earth. I fully realize that I am here for Him and Him alone, for His purposes and His pleasure, and that I will one day see and experience all of the pleasures in eternity. This world may seem like it provides so much enticing gratification, so much of which seem difficult to let go of, especially for something we cannot tangibly grasp at this time. But just because we can’t see Him, doesn’t mean He’s not real. Nothing on earth could ever compare to the pleasures of being in God’s presence in paradise forever – the place He prepared for those who truly love Him.

If everyone had a momentary taste of what they could have in Heaven if they ask Jesus to be Lord over their life, every single person would let go of false treasures and fall to their knees before God and never be pulled by this world again. But that’s not what God wants. He wants our love and devotion because we want HIM and not a ticket to Heaven. We can’t see what God’s people are in for once they pass from this world to the next, but it will be unsurpassably beyond our wildest dreams. Thankfully, during my lifetime on earth, He allows me to escape into His arms.🌙💛

I just wanna be with Him.


{John 17:24}
“Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, be with Me where I am”

{Philippians 3:20}
But we are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting for him to return as our Savior.

{John 17:16-19
“They do not belong to this world any more than I do. Make them holy by your truth; teach them your word, which is truth. Just as you sent me into the world, I am sending them into the world. And I give myself as a holy sacrifice for them so they can be made holy by your truth.“

Our Thirst for God

14063989_883831341723656_5627061374244093867_n

There is a deep thirst in our soul that only God can quench. It is unquenchable by anything else.

We thirst for the true God. We thirst for the One who made our hearts. We thirst for our Creator, our Saviour, our everything. We thirst to be close to Him.

And until He quenches that thirst, we will only to continue to thirst.

Once you encounter the living God, and experience the Spirit of Jesus and His presence, no longer will you thirst. You will be drinking from the water of life. No longer will you be satisfied with anything lower than Him. All other things in this life becomes blurred like a wet black and white painting on a canvas, and ALL you can see is Him: clear, bright, shining, glorious.

As your eyes of love cut towards Him, He’s powerfully moved by you. He drinks in your love and feasts on your worship. He feels deeply for those who belong to Him. And His feelings are of intense love. Once you become a new creature, baptized with the fire of the Holy Spirit, you will never again thirst for anything less than God Himself. Nothing else can or will ever satisfy! He is it. We receive from Him, and He receives from us. Separation ceased, we become one with our God in sweet everlasting relationship.

Only God can give us exactly what we need perfectly, and oh! How He does it so completely and with master skill.👑💕

{Psalm 42:2}
“My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.“

{John 4:14}
“But whoever takes a drink of the water that I will give him shall never, no never, be thirsty any more. But the water that I will give him shall become a spring of water welling up (flowing, bubbling) continually within him into eternal life.”

{Ephesians 2:4}
“But God–so rich is He in His mercy! Because of and in order to satisfy the great and wonderful and INTENSE love with which He loved us,”

{Zephaniah 3:17}
“For the LORD your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.”

{Song of Solomon 6:5}
“Turn your eyes from me; they overwhelm me.”

God’s Creation in Snowflakes

14068130_881102418663215_405496489497641769_n

Glory and honour and praise to God forever and ever and ever and ever and ever! Snowflakes are some of my favourite things in God’s creation. They are glorious! Look at this. This is a real picture of a snowflake up close. When you view this snowflake, does this not look DESIGNED? It’s perfect, creative, mathematical. Design and unity do not form and flourish out of chaos. Design and unity, along with perfect mathematical measurements, comes from a Creator.

It’s interesting that in our physical world, we look at everything not found in nature as created. Building architecture, clothes, electronics, beautiful artwork (which many times replicate the beauty and creativity of the natural world), baked goods, and so much more. We accept that it was built, designed, made. But when we look at the beauty and perfection and majestic qualities of the natural world, (all these of which surpass man made created things immeasurably), we are quick to dispel it as random chance.

Big Bang, a chaotic explosion that occurred with absolutely no causation or purpose. And boom–designed, perfect, unified, mathematically perfect, harmonious, creative, mesmerizing beauty all around us. But many still don’t believe there is a Creator behind it.

This snowflake is one of which trillions exist in any given year, and not one has been found exactly like another. There has never been found a replica. Ever. And by these findings, we can rationally assert that there is an extremely low probability of two of the same snowflakes ever existing.

How incredible is that?? It is creativity and unlimited superiority beyond our mind’s ability to even fully absorb. We can’t fathom there being so many different designs and shapes of snowflakes, because we’re human and have limits. But there IS a God who has no limits.

His creativity is endless. The beauty He makes is endless.

Though snow falls and covers the ground, and snowflakes are here one moment and melted the next. Humans can’t even see them in its detail with the naked eye.

This enlightens us a little bit on why God creates: for His pleasure, His overflowing love, His enjoyment, His purposes, and for His glory.

And when we’re able to see these snowflakes up-close via microscope or macro photography, it is such a gift to our eyes. We are able to indulge in a beauty that almost always passes us by, unnoticed by the human, even though snow surrounds us much of the year.

These little flakes of snow are just so, so beautiful and breathtaking. And when we are gifted with pictures of these, we are able to feast on a drop of the beauty, glory, and splendour of God Himself.❄️

{Job 12:7-10}
But now ask the beasts, and let them teach you; And the birds of the heavens, and let them tell you. Or speak to the earth, and let it teach you; And let the fish of the sea declare to you. Who among all these does not know That the hand of the LORD has done this, in whose hand is the life of every living thing, And the breath of all mankind?

I fall for You Every Single Day

14063783_880398755400248_5934527971058054480_n

Everyday, when I open my eyes, I realize all over again how lucky I am to have you.
But it’s not luck, because it wasn’t by accident.
I was Yours before the foundation of the earth.
I was Yours before I knew I was Yours.
And being Yours, every morning as my eyes open, You take my breath away. 
You take my breath away as the first thought of You passes through my mind.
You take it away, only to give it back to me, so I can then give my breath back to You in sweet, overwhelming, fiery, intense love, worship, and adoration.
Let every part of my life be worship unto You.
Let my fragrance be a pleasing aroma to You and You alone.
Oh God, you are all I want.
You are all I will ever need.
Strip me of all I have and I will still want You.
I thirst for You. My soul longs for You. My whole being pants for You in excruciating bursts of love and joy as I wait for the day you come.
You are my treasure, you are my gold, you are my silver, you are my all in all. Nothing else even matters outside of you.
You are my love, my life, and I am so in love with You.
Every morning, it’s anew.
It’ll never fade because the depths of Your love will never end.
You’re perfect, breathtaking, and Your love sets me ablaze.
Like a fire that cannot be quenched.
Nor will ever be put out.
I love You more than I have ever loved anything before.
I’ll never love anything the way I love You.
Let me go deeper.

Everyday I fall madly in love with you all over again.

{Ephesians 1:4}
“Just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him in love.”

{Song of Songs 4:10-11}
“Your love delights me, my treasure, my bride. Your love is better than wine, your perfume more fragrant than spices. Your lips are as sweet as nectar, my bride. Honey and milk are under your tongue.”

{Revelation 22:17}
The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.”

{Job 22:25-27}
“And make the Almighty your gold and [the Lord] your precious silver treasure, Then you will have delight in the Almighty, and you will lift up your face to God. You will make your prayer to Him, and He will hear you,”

{Song of Solomon 8:6}
“For love is as strong as death, Jealousy is as severe as the grave; Its flashes are flashes of fire, The very flame of the LORD.”

{Psalms 42}
“So my soul pants for You, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God; When shall I come and appear before God? Deep calls to deep at the sound of Your waterfalls; All Your breakers and Your waves have rolled over me. The LORD will command His lovingkindness in the daytime; And His song will be with me in the night, A prayer to the God of my life.”

In the Morning, I need Jesus

13935058_876921179081339_1315116509880811852_n

Yes please!💛

There is no better way to start your day with the resurrected King, the living God Almighty. The One who was, the One who IS, and the One who is to come. Oh, how my heart calls out to Him when my eyes open, longing for his sweet presence and intimacy. He fills my cup, and my soul is satisfied. He is the bread of life, and I need to eat the Word of God and absorb it into my being before I can do anything else. I do not live by bread alone, but by every single word that comes out of the sweet mouth of God. 

There’s something extremely powerful about starting your day with Jesus. Just like food gives energy and sustains, you would never start going about your day without putting something in your stomach, lest you faint. Likewise (but so much more!), Jesus gives us everything we need to start our day – closeness with the living God and a satisfied soul, filled with His love and strength. It’s so imperative that lovers of Jesus spend deep solid time with Him! I don’t want to start my day with anything other than intimacy with God. I don’t want to see anyone before I talk to God and tell Him how much I love Him. I don’t want to get busy before I spend time basking in His light. If I neglect this, I neglect the very breadth in which I exist, and I will run on empty. I need His filling and His touch every single morning.

{Psalms 90:14}
Satisfy us each morning with your unfailing love, so we may sing for joy to the end of our lives.

When my eyes open, give me Jesus. 💛 He’s all I want.

God is my Warrior

13900141_875177325922391_6035177056667166698_n

I can’t even begin to recall how many times in scripture that God calls us to have courage and to not be afraid. Hundreds of times. How beautiful is that? He’s so concerned with ensuring that if we’re His, we have absolutely nothing to ever worry about. God is sovereign and He works everything out for our good, for those who love Him. EVEN when we mess up and sin, and make mistakes, and fumble – time, and time, and time again. There is no better security or assurance than this! He wants us to trust Him as our warrior God, carrying us through this life on earth and fighting our battles as well as equipping us with His armour.

The battle belongs to the Lord our God. And He so delights when we fall to our knees, lift up our hands, and give all our cares and concerns and problems to Him. He adores a heart crying out to Him. He delights in taking care of us and sheltering us under His wing, as a mother hen covers her babies. We’re God’s babies, and we have nothing to fear, as long as we’re clinging to Him. He is in control and He is more powerful than even the most horrible circumstances or scariest situations. Even during these times and seasons, we have nothing to fear. The God of all that exists has us in the palm of His hand. We can never be snatched out of His hand, which means we have nothing to fear. If our God is for us, who can ever be against us??? Not demons, not any spiritual thing, no authority, no calamity, or hardship, or trying time, or pain, or even DEATH – not even death can separate us from God’s love and protection and sovereignty over our lives. His seal is over our heart, and our name is written on the palm of His hand. We’re His, forever. And He will protect us every day for the rest of our lives here on this earth.

What a glorious warrior King.💛

{Isaiah 49:16}
See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me.

{exodus 14:14}
The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.

{The Song of Solomon 8:6-7}
Place me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm, for love is strong as death, jealousy is fierce as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, the very flame of the Lord. Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it.

{Romans 8:31-39}
What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us? Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else? Who dares accuse us whom God has chosen for his own? No one—for God himself has given us right standing with himself. Who then will condemn us? No one—for Christ Jesus died for us and was raised to life for us, and he is sitting in the place of honor at God’s right hand, pleading for us. Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.” ) No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

{Ephesians 6:10-18}
A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm. Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared. In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil. Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.

{Matthew 23:37}
“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones God’s messengers! How often I have wanted to gather your children together as a hen protects her chicks beneath her wings, but you wouldn’t let me.”

His heart is so sweet.💛

Anchor for our Souls

13939415_874286076011516_44404743150076963_n

Our soul is not scattered by the force of the waves that sometimes ingulf us; nor the strength of the winds that, at times, surround us; nor the burn of the intense heat of the sun on us; nor the numbness of the cold that can fill our bones. When we are God’s and belong to Him, our soul is anchored on the strongest and most steady and immovable thing that we can ever trust: God, our strong anchor. When waves crash and winds blow and heat burns and cold freezes, we will always find firm fitting in the steady Anchor of our soul.

He’s the one who will lift us out of the water that we drown in. He’s the one who holds us steady as the wind threatens to carry us away. He’s the one who shields us from burning, and the one who keeps us warm even during the coldest of seasons.

When you have God, you have everything. Though to the world you might be poor, because you have Him you are truly rich. You have the Anchor for your very own soul – the most valuable thing we possess. It’s good to trust God with our soul, there is no safer place. He is the One who made our souls, and He is the only One who has the power to guard it and keep it.

How do we make Him the Anchor of our souls?

Trust Him. Believe that He is who He says He is. Saturate yourself in His Holy Scriptures. Cry out to Him. Cast all of your burdens on Him. Worship Him. Praise His beautiful name. Bask in His presence. Be still before Him. Ask Him to be in every aspect of your life. Run to Him first, no matter the problem. Desire His will to be done in your life above your own will. Desire your desires to be His desires. Recognize your need for Him. Depend on Him more than anything else as the God who will care for you. Realize we’re here for Him and Him alone. Thank Him. Love Him with all of your heart, your soul, your mind, your strength.

Abide in Him, and He will abide in you. Turn to Him, and you will receive the Anchor for your soul. One who will hold you, sustain you, protect you, carry you, shield you, teach you, grow you, strengthen you, guide you, and love you more than anyone ever could.

{Hebrews 6:19}
This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary.
