a word.

August 8, 2012

You want a word…   You read I have that deal with Him…  So you asked.

I feel like others could benefit from it…or rather just seeing part of this process… So take this word for yourself…Or read it to help you accept or learn about your own process. If nothing more I hope you can come to this without judgement for how I get to this…because my purpose to post this here is for others to see the process. I hope you can keep this space safe and allow me to let you in like this. I understand we all come from different backgrounds.

So I sit in the quiet and I get nothing… it always frustrates me when I know very little about why someone wants a word… but it is probably better that way. Then I can’t be influenced to think one way or another. So I sit and I can hear kids in the other room arguing about the rules of water polo in the Olympics and I can’t stay focused. Frustrated, I put on some music to drown out the sounds of this house…something that helps me center my prayer, music that beats with a heartbeat of throne room….
I think it is no accident that the pencil tip breaks and I am sitting in front of a keyboard with an open empty screen….
and like gliding through it all, it just flows…..


…He says that He saw you plowing. You plowed ground no one had ever been to.. He watched you …HE sent the Son to shine on you and you kept plowing and HE smiled…and then HE saw you plant the seed… He saw you. You walk the field.. He saw the birds land and they took it away. You picked up the dry dirt in your hand and let it funnel out as dust and HE saw you kick the dirt… but this harvest that He will let you harvest will not be planted by human hands.. it will be a super natural planting… let the birds take what they took,ok… because HE wants a clean harvest that you look way up  into the sky and you say” it all came from You”.  He will multiply your harvest… He will bless the work you have done…. but He wants you to know that no work you do is needed… He loves you just as you are… you don’t have to prove yourself…your worth… you are a caretaker by nature… you feel worthy when you tend…and HE says he is blessed by you… you are a blessing just as you are… and He will send you to a harvest planted by him… and you will need to gather them together just to bring it all in… you are faithful to Him and HE has loved you in your sleep as much as He loves you in the field…

I hope that means something to you… but know once you ask for “a word” and you get something… it’s up to you to judge it, make sure it is for you. Feeling a bit vulnerable before you right now letting you see me like this. So much hesitation in hitting “publish”…not about the word, that is sound. Hesitation in putting myself out here like this, but someone else out there needs to know; that you have this too. Well if it doesn’t apply…. here is a video that is pretty good…so it won’t be a total wash:

      I am an East Coast girl well sorta…
      anyway…what strikes you as something you would want to discuss.
      I think the discussion itself could serve people…most people just read and wonder…you read and commented.

        I’m in the middle of Canada!
        Really, this whole idea of ‘having a word’. I go to a baptist church – enough said? I don’t doubt it for a minute though. I’ve been going through a prayer ministry over the last few months, and a lot of that involves praying for images, visions, etc. Staggering stuff.

        Perfect… okay no one but God is 100% right 100% of the time. Pressure off. The most peace to my soul thing I have heard on this topic is when major names (Big Wigs if you will) have given words to people and been completely wrong…does that discount everything they said? No… it is always up to the recipient to judge the words/advice/revelation/inspiration they feel is for them. Aside from being wrong…which is okay..some wouldn’t call it wrong so much as they would call it learning….I believe “words” are multi faceted. Think of The Word…it inspires us differently at different times.
        He knows the desires of your heart… He gave them to you and the heart to go with it, lol… so trust that HE put that need for interaction with the spiritual in there too.
        You come humbly and open only to Him … things will shake out the way they should.
        Just know you may make mistakes….its the other person’s job to judge it for themselves.
        ask for more revelation on the subject from Him.
        It will happen more and more.

        Or…Sarah… give me a word.
        I am safe… if you are totally off base, no loss.
        Besides I think words are multifaceted…so even at first glance it seems wrong to me…I am comfortable chewing on it and thinking about it. Words are funny that way.
        No pressure…just offering it up to you.
        no worries.

    I don’t think I’ve ever thought about me being the one giving the word! Glad I found you at aholyexperience. 7 kids?? I thought I was doing good with 3! And though I didn’t birth them in a bedroom, I did birth two of them in my dining room. 😉

    • August 8, 2012 3:47 pm

      fair enough.. I think you get a badge for birthing them in the dining room for sure! 🙂
      I am glad you stopped by.. I love when people have interesting things to say.
      Good time!

        I’m really maxing out my comment limit here! I looked for an email instead, but don’t see one.
        So when you post something like this, I can read it, and things pop into my head about how this might relate to me. But you didn’t specifically receive this word for me. So is that how it sometimes works? Hopefully I don’t sound too simplistic.

        I have rarely seen a word for just one person… I know people want to think themselves so unique. Lol. That being said if you or anyone else feel this specific word resonates within you…I believe He is talking to you,too. Your path is different then the next persons… So the way it impacts you would be different then it resonates with someone else.
        Besides I felt very clearly this was to be shared… I could have emailed the specific person direct… But i could just tell there was much to be learned or shared by setting it out here…. And clearly that has rang true. 🙂

    “HE has loved you in your sleep as much as He loves you in the field…”

    Yes! Love that image. One translation of the well-known Ps. 127:2 says, “He gives to His beloved, even in their sleep.” Even when there’s nothing they can do to deserve it or serve Him or love Him back — HE GIVES.

    That is the Gospel, is it not?

    You might feel vulnerable, friend, but your words are Truth. Never apologize for Truth, even if it’s whispered in your ear. Be radically faithful to what He is showing you . . . we must if we will “choose Him first” over and over again.

    I haven’t been here in sooo long. Good to see you again. 🙂

      welcome back… glad you stopped by and with such encouraging awesome words.
      Thank you…love it!

    Stumbled across your writing tonight…I selected 55 from the comment icons 2x and it didn’t work(my lucky number:)… Randomly picked yours…must have been ment for me to read…
    Thank you.. Beautiful, thoughtful writing that made me think God loves me for who I am right now…needed to hear that…. My husband and I relocated with our 4 children to a new area from my home where I was born and’s where we went to college actually..and it’s hard 😦 Very homesick…and feel bad for feeling bad…your writing made me think.
    Thank you…

      Hey hey… I have done this too. Not know but back when we first got married. I know it is hard. Let your self feel it…and go to the other side of those emotions.
      You are allowed to miss where you were and feel loss. Let yourself process it.
      But also…in all of that… Let Him provide for you. You aren’t doing this alone. HE has made a way for you… So look for Him… and ask Him, where are you? Let me see how you are providing for me in this?
      He will make Himself known.

    Goosebumps when I read parts of this post….

      IT is so neat how people are responding to this. Comments and emails…some phone calls from local friends.. it seems that this really did need to be out here for others.
      I am glad it touched you.
