God has a circle, a circle of love that is open to all that want to know unconditional love an affection. In His circle is a touch for all that feel alone, abandoned, neglected, violated and betrayed. When we have been hurt we may seclude ourselves from people, we turn to a lonley world of pain, isolation and silence.In Jesus there is healing from every pain, all abandonment, and betrayal. God says that He is always here for us, that He would never leave us or forsake us. Jesus draws us into His circle because He understands our needs. Hebrews 4:15 ~ “He has been touched, Himself, by the pain that touches us”. What better way to understand us an know how to love us than to have suffered the same.My prayer: May you find the loving touch of Jesus in His circle of love. May you be comforted an your tears of pain be wiped away. May you develop confidence an began to trust in Jesus, eventually becoming secure in your on personal self an be fully restored to a life hidden in the wings of the Almighty Father.

John 15:16 Amplified Bible (AMP)
16 You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and I have appointed you [I have planted you], that you might go and bear fruit and keep on bearing, and that your fruit may be lasting [that it may remain, abide]
It’s amazingly funny how I always thought that we had to chose God and then He would chose us. It was not until I began to really build a relationship with Him and allow Him to open the eyes of my heart that I started to desire more of Him and to let go of my way and allow Him to have His way. I began to wonder why and how, why is it that I want more of God and how is it that I want to do everything I know how to please Him, not sometimes but all of the time. I found out as it says in the Word that I did not chose God but that He chose me. He chose me to seek Him, He chose me to love Him, He chose me to answer His call, He chose me to want to do His will, He chose me as His vessel to be used by Him, He chose me to preach His gospel to the lost, He chose me to reveal His purpose to me, I could go on but I think you get what I am saying, I’m saying He chose me…..
I found out who I was in God, what my calling is and I long to fulfill everything that God has called me to be. When I began to seek Him daily for guidance and direction, He started showing Himself to me. As I see all things started to fall in their rightful place.
Matthew 6:33 Amplified Bible (AMP)
33 But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides.
It is through nothing that I have done that God chose me, but it is in seeking Him that I find everything. Most if not all of the time when God places something in my heart or He shows me something He wants me to know or do, I have know idea what it means at the time. I am most lost at that point but I desire to know what He wants me to know so I began to seek Him.. Some times I ave no idea where to even start, I can pick up my bible, open it and still have no idea where to go. I can start praying and still not know what He is telling me when I am done. But I do not give up, if I have to go through the entire day I continue seeking Him. God pursued me when I didn’t even think about Him so I now in turn pursue Him because of the desire He placed in me to know Him..
I feel like I just rambled on with the thoughts that fill me right now. But I say all of this just to say that In my seeking God I often do or say something everyday that was just what God wanted me to and I may not become aware that I have done it until it happens. This walk is not about me but about God’s people, His lost sheep. So everything that God does in me, through me and for me is not just for my gain but to show His love to His creations. So I thank God this day for choosing me and using me for His glory. I thank God that the veil was torn that I me come to Him and seek Him for my life and the lives of those that do not know Him..

Just about every morning when I am waking up, meaning I am still in a state of being sleep but I am slightly aware the I and waking up, I can hear a song down in my spirit. I believe that is the Holy Ghost and my inner man in tune with each other and they are meeting me in the beginning of a new day. I trust that the song that I sing is a clue as to where my heart and mind is the moment I enter the state of consciousness. This mornings song was a tune I remember singing as a little girl in the choir at church called “Silver and Gold”. It is a simple tune to me and I was oh so happy to hear it and that my soul and heart was in the right place.
Job 22:25 (Amplified Bible)
And make the Almighty your gold and [the Lord] your precious silver treasure,
The song simply says that I ‘d rather have Jesus than silver and gold., no fame or fortune, no riches untold, I’d rather have Jesus than silver and gold.
Exodus 20:23 Amplified Bible
You shall not make [gods to share] with Me [My glory and your worship]; gods of silver or gods of gold you shall not make for yourselves.
In the bible silver and gold was the currency in which the people used to purchase things. Today we use coins and paper , but the meaning to me is still the same. In my heart I choose not to worship money but to worship the Son of God. In Him every need is met. When I say need I do not mean just our material needs but our every need. Money does not make people happy but God is the source of all happiness and joy.
So in Christ Jesus I have all that I need and He is all that I can give to you.
But Peter said, Silver and gold (money) I do not have; but what I do have, that I give to you: in [the use of] the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk!
