COMING INTO TENDERNESS 8/17/05
HEARD: Melted the ice.
COMMENT: I think of tears when I think of ice melting.
The are many whose hearts have grown numb and they are
no longer able to weep tears, get in touch with their
emotions or feel much of anything. This is due to
suffering childhood isolation of rejections or
abandonment and lack of bonding. It can also be related
to suffering deep disappointment from wounded
expectations. The Lord is going to heal these wounds and
help people to shed tears, become vulnerable and
tenderhearted once again.
CONFIRMATION ANOINTED HANDS: I turned to the
following Word to Ponder
WORD TO PONDER: THE FIRST SIGNS OF HOPE
Even as you were planted deep within the soil and
endured a cold winter ground, so shall My Son warm your
climate and bring you forth in renewed hope once again.
There comes a day of breakthrough when a bulb
breakthroughs its dark surroundings into the light of
day. It may appear but a bud in a cold climate, but that
bulb reaches higher and higher until it comes to
fruition. Just as the bulbs you have watched this
Spring, I see that your head is showing. You may think
its cold and bleak, and your nose may feel very cold,
but I know that winter is changing and new beginnings
IMPRESSION: When thinking about the ice melting,
I thought of the excerpt of the following Word to Ponder
I had sent to someone:
“… Search for them. They dwell in the shadows. Many are
numb of pain, due to the coldness of isolation. They
will not know the true identity of their pain until the
thaw begins. Be there, shepherds of Mine heart. Be there
to warm them and comfort them through the thaw. Never
let the breath of condemnation touch their shell.
Embrace them. Give them My welcome covering and the
warmth of My fire…”
CONFIRMATION: I wondered if that was what the
Lord meant by telling me the ice was melting. After that
I received a second confirmation today about the ice.
Someone sent me a dream where the football field had
been frozen over and was melting. I knew this was a body
Word because of my past dream about the frozen ski
slope. I am hoping the Lord is saying the 2nd ski slope
may have melted.
PAST DREAM: I saw 2 very large ski slopes that
were running parallel to each other. One was deep in
snow and the other was glazed over in ice. Suddenly I
realized that where I had been standing was not a ski
slope after all but a river and it was just now
beginning to melt and break its ice free. Just as I
realized this, I was swept into its flow. I scooped some
children to go with me and we went swimming down the
river. As we turned a bend, I looked up and saw the 2nd
"slope" and knew it had yet to thaw and it was a second
even more powerful river. The second one went into the
first one and they joined together.
Comments: In past rhema, snow, cold or ice
has meant a cold environment frozen over by enemy
restraints. Two means double portion. Therefore, I see
this dream representing an area in the river of God that
is melting old restraints and beginning to flow. The
waiting double portion is not yet "thawed."
QUICKENED CONFIRMATION: This afternoon I was
cleaning the kitchen after receiving all the revelation
about the ice melting and I noticed there was a line of
water streaking across the counter. As I pondered where
it came from, I suddenly remembered that it had come
from a small snack container that had a snack, drink and
ice. Evidently the ice pack had melted and left a puddle
on our kitchen counter.
WORD TO PONDER: CREATED FOR RELATIONSHIP
Like the radiant sun on a cold day, I have been silently
shining My face upon you. You have often wondered why I
would touch you in such a way. This has been My love
language melting your mask. Yes I know your pain, dear
one. You may have hidden it from yourself, but you have
not hidden it from Me.
I created you for relationship. I planted this need so
deep that even you do not understand its depth. The
enemy has known this, and has plotted to steal
relationship from you. His plot has been to so thwart
these blessings that you would feel alone and isolated
even among a full house or a crowd.
You have suffered the bitter coldness of thwarted
expectations. Trying so hard, longing to be loved for
who you are, and proving yourself worthy for the
fellowship that you were created to have… Life has not
gone the way you hoped or planned.
Yes, I have been mostly silent as I have warmed your
layers. Your numbness has even kept Me at bay, even
though that has not been your desire. I AM bringing you
through this time, dear one, so that you know My heart
more because of it. I have wanted loving fellowship just
like you. And I want you. Yes, dear one your ice is
melting. You are adopted and chosen as My own. You
belong to Me.
Rev 3:20 KJV
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.
