False Prophets

July 20, 2015

The trouble in life is not the struggle or challenge. It is the false notion of separation we feel. The Lord recently reminded me that nothing can separate me from His love. NOTHING. Romans 8:38 – Martha L Shaw

I Am NOTHING

July 8, 2015

. . . without you, Lord!

I do not believe in coincidences, i believe in God-instances, so when I read “nothing can separate you from my love” this morning, I knew it was not by calendar or by chance. Like Peter, my response was also “Lord, you KNOW. ..” and He does, but HE made me reread it a time or two and as I write this I am just now catching the significance.

When I feel completely robed in His love, none of my shortcomings or failures, or challenges weigh me down or scare me, but at 2am, they woke me up in fear. I prayed and got back to sleep but was disappointed in myself for having misplaced His peace. “Will I ever get it right?”

On my own? NEVER. BUT I was reminded of the words of assurance that “nothing can separate you from my love” and so when fear and trembling come I will repeat those words until my heart and mind are one! JOIN ME!

I Did NOT!

June 22, 2015

I have a friend who wakes up all aglow and usually singing.  My late Mom often woke up singing church hymns.  Me?  Clear the way!  I need my coffee, shower, and quiet-time!  Yes,  I sometimes awaken in song, but not too often.  Not today.

How we feel does not need to rule the day.  Hope is within us

freedom thoughts

.  Pray with me . . .

Lord,

I give my all to you and

ask that you enable me

to reflect your joy and hope

on this day and always. Amen

Awaken and pray

Clouds suddenly reveal Son

Hope-my hand in His

Taking Off The Blindfold

May 29, 2015

Blindfolded we dance

Sun still shining as we sing

Darkness holds no fear

By Martha L Shaw – ©  5-29-2015

blindfolded

I was not what you’d call an athlete as a kid but I was active, running and biking and playing games without fear.  I wanted to swing the highest and bike the fastest.  We played games with masks fearlessly and when it was someone else’s turn I laughed as they wandered.  Now as an adult with failing eyesight, darkness comes unexpectedly and scares me.  Familiar hallways seem filled with obstacles waiting to hurt me.  Gone is the girl laughing with her blindfold on.  This fear is not necessary.

23 Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble;  – Proverbs 3:23

Light . . . Darkness . . . why fear one over the other?  If I am on the path with my Lord, day and night are both alike.  He will not let me fall.    I am His.
