Journey to Quebec


These are my notes of some of what I learned etc as I drove across the country to our new home. 

Journey up: 

Day 1: NS to Edmunston 

Even if surrender.
God, even if _________happens, still I will trust You. 
SO Often, it’s only when I begin to release the thing I want… that God comes in ( either to give it anyway, or else w the comfort and peace) 

— also take life as it comes, take the day AS IT COMES- instead of trying to manipulate and have things a certain way..
– same w Charles , take him, and the kids as they come too. Hear the voice and Will of The Lord in his words and requests. 

Advent lyrics, Paul Overstreet:

Wise men still seek Him

Those on earth who realize how much they need Him
Following Jesus wherever He may lead them

Wise men, still seek Him ‘
Day 2: NB to Ottawa 

33 days consecration: 
The Holy Spirit does nothing without His spouse, thus she is the mediatrux of all grace 

Recognize the multitude of mercies – through her spouse the Holy Spirit!!!

EXAMEN- to not complain- focus on the good things God is doing in our lives!!
COVENANT!

-Total dependence

-Accept all as coming from her loving hands 

-Constant recourse to her

-Purity of intention SELF DENIAL!!

Walk in faith while pondering in your heart. 

Day 3: Ottawa – Quebec!
Oh yeah…

That when I accept these little setbacks, etc, and bring so tired, or sore and continue driving ( continuing along God’s will) — I am carrying my cross.

Every time I decide I’d rather do things another way than what is- I am throwing my cross to the ground. 
Oh yeah- back home, my day to day life was still mine, to make with what I chose each day, but now, now my life is Yours… I mean I came all the way up here for You!!! And That fact won’t change. 

And as we drive in, everything is snow dusted and so pretty! And my heart feels strangely at home w all the farms in the hills. 

Lamps with Oil

Sept 1

 

This morning the daily gospel was the parable of the 10 virgins
This is so a parable for our world today. There are so many people who are not wise.
Christ is coming, we have reason to believe not the coming at the end of the world but that Christ is coming in a very special way to His people. And He’s going to be coming soon, and after He comes the door will be shut.
The foolish were late and when they did finally come The Lord didn’t know them.
That is why it is so important to make time to spend w God. Because it is the ones who spend time with Him, now, that He will know, because they took the time to know Him.

The foolish took their lamps as well, they wanted God, but they didn’t have any oil for their lamps because they never put in the time.
And then it was too late. The door was shut.
The wise are those spend time w God
it’s so important to make that time to spend w Him, more important right now than anything else.

I Am in Everything

A conversation with God

Aug 9 2015

 

Heavenly Father, Daddy God, please come and fill me with Your powerful creative love.

I Am in EVERYTHING. Every breeze, every leaf, every weed growing in your front yard. 

Every car too? Well yes, every atom of matter is You! You hold everything together…

I am in every body, every cell, every soul that you meet, great and small, angry or kind. I am in every heart, though not all know it. 

It is love that does all this. My love for My creation, for My children, is higher than the heavens and infinitely more vast than the universe. No instrument of technological achievement could ever probe it’s depths, it is something that can only be felt in the heart. 

Yes Lord, and there are times when that love touches mine and it’s so vast, it’s HEAVY! It’s thick and bursting, my little heart can not possibly hold it, Lord, it seems that here You only give us the tiniest of tastes! 

It’s true, and no man on earth can grasp it either, not even the Saints, though they come much closer than most. 

You are my daughter! I will love you forever, I will like you always, as long as I’m living My child you will be. 

Glory

 This is the true glory of God: a love, that thinks only of the other, and not of itself.

Finding Him

On the days when I am focused on God and seeking Him ( and not consumed by thoughts of some certain outcome) there are days I can draw close and stay close to God, and find His Peace and Presence, and some days when I just can’t,  but on Sunday I finally understood why. 

Like the man who found the treasure in a field, Matthew was not looking, he found Jesus by accident. Other times, people are searching, really searching- like the wisemen, like me.

And to such people, the bible promises us in Jeremiah, ***if you seek Me WITH ALL YOUR HEART, you will find Me. ***

— those times, when I feel lost from the moment, and God… 
It’s not enough to look around me for God, restless, self-conscious and  still half- thinking about other things…( I do get stuck in that!) Yet I think, when God alone is what I am looking for, –  He is easy to find!! 

So the path is, to let go of everything else first, and THEN look for Him, and call to Him!!!

Wrestling 

It’s not where are You God, because I know where You are…

Here with me.
But, It’s why is that not enough for me?? 

because when I think about it all, It still feels too much …

Because I forget.. or just can’t find You in it…in the chaos 
— God, whatever happens in my day just help me to find You.

You are all I really want, every minute of the day.

Jesus, I trust in You today and always. Not what I want, what You want, because all I really want is You
