With all the work on my website, I got 2 months behind
in doing rhema. This whole thing really stretched me out
of whack and I lost my resting place in hearing Him.
12/27/04: Almost at the end of their rope.
I saw an email with the subject titled in all caps,
You have made sacrifices. Support you in this. Playing
work to do. I'm ready to go forward. Can't you help me?
It was fainting. Sweetheart, I will sustain you. Thou
wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on
thee. Calm down. Connected. Lean. She rests with deep
intimacy. My daughter.
HANDS: I turned to a page and in the margin it said,
Perspective is different. Then I turned many pages over
to: "The secret to developing an eternal perspective in
the midst of earthly problems. They were able to live
above their circumstances and rejoice, even while being
persecuted because of their firm grasp on who they were
in Christ and where they were going."
Stretched out of balance.
WORD: Anna came in and shared what she had just turned
to in her Selah Words, (which are the harvest of her own
rhema, like my Words to Ponder are a harvest from mine)
and it was perfect for my prayer request that the Lord
bring me back to my resting place.
WORD: YOUR RESTING PLACE IS TOPSY-TURVY 9/21/02
resting place is topsy-turvy. You sigh and you cry as
though I have not spoken to you the truth. The truth
should be of great comfort to you, dear one. So, again I
say, you shall be made whole! Put aside your own agenda
and believe Mine. Yes, it is awesome and you can
scarcely believe I Am speaking about you. But it is
truth, My love, and everything I have promised will come
true in your life there on earth. Not one thing has
failed thereof of all My good promises to you. So, come
into My rest and wait patiently for it all to come to
set another time for entering his place of rest, and
that time is today. God announced this through David a
long time later in the words already quoted: "Today you
must listen to his voice. Don't harden your hearts
against him." This new place of rest was not the land of
Canaan, where Joshua led them. If it had been, God would
not have spoken later about another day of rest. So
there is a special rest still waiting for the people of
God. For all who enter into God's rest will find rest
from their labors, just as God rested after creating the
world. Let us do our best to enter that place of rest.
For anyone who disobeys God, as the people of Israel
did, will fall." (Hebrews 4:7-11 NLT)

prophetic revelation, punched with the word of wisdom

a divided heart. Many responsibilities pull and tug and
demand your attention. Only one will do. And that is to
yet to understand what it means to cast your care upon
Me. My burden is light and easy when you are yoked with
Me, just as two oxen at a plow divide the load and
neither feel the true weight of the burden. Because you
are ensnared by the tangled cares, you have forgotten
your resting place; that place where you bring all that
divides your time and energy back to Me. Allow Me My
place by your side, helping to divide your load and
partnering with you to get the job done.
your responsibilities back to Me and let us rearrange
your priorities. Together we will divide the load and
not your heart. Together, in one mind, in one purpose,
we will get the job done and you will find joy and
energy in the process.
Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou
art careful and troubled about many things: But one
thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part,
which shall not be taken away from her." (Luke 10:41-42)
