I woke in the night with words on the wind. ‘2020 is a HEAVY Door – it needs to be opened to the future. But……..’open gently and slowly – a little bit at a time.’
I was at first concerned. The year 2019 has ended with increased news of suffering and FIRES as the Australian bushfires continue rampaging over the land causing heartache, loss and sorrows.
Last Sunday the gentle beauty of spiritually chasing butterflies (symbols of the Hope, Love, Joy, Peace and New Life of the Christmas Season.)was deeply encouraging in my heart.
Then spiritually before me was this extremely heavy door to a New Year.
The prayerful Revelation is unfolding…This door is pregnant with Possibilities and HOPE. It is VERY HEAVY.
‘Open it slowly – do not fling it wide or your view may be impacted by the BIG PICTURE.
Through the first chink allow the spiritual ‘butterflies’ to trickle.
Prayerfully now with HOPE this 1st Day will be lived. Keeping always the needs of ‘others’ before His Throne of Grace, we can then affirm the ABUNDANT Christ-life that is ours, while needing ‘others’ are also with us.
HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL
JESUS SAID. ‘Follow Me, I will give you life in all its FULLNES. ‘
Matt. 28:20B. Lo, I am with you always even to the end of the age.
You are Loved! Deeply, Dearly and ETERNALLY.
I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions.
I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.

Yes Faye, I agree with your words. This coming year is going to be one of standing strong in Jesus our Strongtower because the winds are blowing for sure. I love how the Holy Spirit goes ahead and prepares our hearts and minds so we don’t feel dread of the days’ news or weather. God bless you Faye! Chasing butterflies from our coast to yours! Happy New Year! Denise ps: Saw on the Weather Channel the beautiful fireworks displayed over Sydney last night!
Happy New Year Faye. Thank you for gracing my life with your friendship, Steve. 😀
I like your “heavy door” analogy. It is pregnant with meaning.
My Dear Aglow Sister Faye. When I read ‘ Go Steady.’ I saw a window and felt The Lord say. “ Look through the window and look through the window frame. Remain in me and trust in me to guide you through the door. Look, is there a handle for you to open the door ? Trust in me to guide your hand to open the door at the right moment.”
Psalm 32:8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you shall go . I will guide you and watch over you.
Thank You Faye and Blessings 💟Maria
Dear Maria, I sincerely thank you for your comment. Blessings
