you know sometimes it seems like you have that "direct connection" w/ god and other times you wonder if He is really there, it takes a lot more effort to pray and try to connect. well thankfully the last 18 hours or so it seems like we have a direct connection. like i really am in step w/ him & his spirit.
simple prayers are being answered -- really quickly and then this morning he gave me a theme scripture so i thought i should share it on my blog
Spread Out! Think Big!
"Sing, barren woman, who has never had a baby
fill the air with song, you who've never experienced childbirth!
Youre ending up with far more children than all those childbearing woman. God says so!
Clear lots of ground for your tents!
Make your tents large. Spread out. Think Big!
use plenty of rope. drive the tent pegs deep
You're going to need lots of elbow room for your growing family. You're going to take over whole nations. You're going to resettle abandoned cities. Don't be afraid--you're not going to be embarrassed. Don't hold back--you're not going to come up short. You'll forget all about the humiliations of your youth. and the indignities of being a widow will fade from memory. For your Maker is your bridegroom. His name, God of the Angel Armies! Your Redeemer is the Holy of Israel. Known as God fo the whole earth. You were like an abandoned wife, devastated with grief and God welcomed you back, Like a woman married young and then left. Your redeemer God says I left you, but only for a moment. Now with enormous compassion, I'm bringing you back. It's with lasting love, that i'm tenderly caring for you.
