Gushing: Poured Into our Hearts

Detail of Painting in Progress

There is nothing like being receptive to the Love of the Lord pouring into your heart,
It is so much deeper a than a feeling, or knowing; His Presence is an experience, to be sought again and again.

This primary function of Man, once achieved,  is as a thirst quenched, an hunger satisfied, and a promise fulfilled. More intoxicating than the rest and refreshment of a warm alcoholic beverage on a cold winter's day,  for it lifts the spirit of a man to the heavenly places,  that he may consider his maker and feel lifted up on the wings of His great love.  

The Oil Elixir of His love is poured into us by the Holy Spirit. (Romans 5)
I happen to feel it through my head (Psalm 23),  
He fills us up our hearts to the extent you make Him Room..

Love keeping His Commandments.
Larn to walk with the Upright
Seek to keep His Day Holy
Walk by Faith and not by Sight
Build that personal relationship with Him
Learn to know and grow yourself.
Drink of His Eternal Light.

i climb the ladder,
to behold, and am beheld
To fly or fall through the clouds?
my wings fatigue, and i am lifted up
to step forward.

Arrows of God

"Do not be afraid, but go on speaking and do not be silent, for I am with you...." Acts 18: 8-10

† Acts 17 and 18 

Paul flies out like an Arrow from the hand of God; leaving a trail of the Holy Spirit's baptismal fire.  That by understanding and reasoning;  Greek Philosophers, Jews and Gentiles are convinced of the End Game from The Beginning.  

When the Father's Spirit guides you, its no small thing He accomplishes through you.
His Spirit is of Power, with Purpose and Direction and He -never- misses.

At times we get the wrong impression of what it means to be a Christian.  

Dr. Martyn Lloyd Jones states repeatedly in his Lectures " Why the most challenging thing you could think to do with your life is to become a Christian. "

Only those who haven't really considered the Word of God would dare to call it an opiate.  The Scriptures stir the mind,  ignites heart and challenges man to strengthen every single faculty of Being.  I say that if a man values himself he ought to consider The Scriptures as the highest exercise of Thought.

Praise be to the Lord! 
My God,  My Rock and My Redeemer! 
He trains my hands for war
and gives skill to my fingers for battle,
so that my arms may bend a Bow of Bronze!

Psalm 18:34
Psalm 144:1
II Sam 22:35

Wisdom and Discernment

I have a very soft spot in my heart for music that promotes a Life of Love.

In comparing secular lyrics from the 1940's to the lyrics of today,  we see a stark contrast in the focus and function of music at work within a population.  Wisdom is at work in the following lyrics:

"For you and I, and everybody
Must learn to give and take
We'll find, like everybody
It's worth it for happiness sake"
                              - Ray Noble 

Where once lyrics served as a binding agent,  almost medicinal in inspiring man towards his betterment,  now popular music is extremely self-satisfying. Promoting the destruction of bonds and devaluing of man under the banner of self and offense.  Here we see Folly at work:   
"Who the f-k do you think I am?
You ain't married to no average b---h boy.
You can watch my fat a-- twist boy.

As I bounce to the next d--k boy

( ...  which lyrics would you wish to be remembered by?)
