turtledove-2 copy

I’ve felt your fear and looked for you, but you withdrew. You can’t see beyond what you must face because your fears are bigger than your faith. You only remember how much it hurt. You made vows. Never again. You built walls. Never again. You trust no one except yourself. Your life is an effort to protect yourself. You feel you must remain in control at all times. Those who disagree with you and make you feel out of control, you turn away from.  In this place, you won’t consider trusting Me. But you have asked to go deeper and I plan to honor your request. I am coming to bring you out of your fortress. Perfect love casts out fear. The things you have built won’t sustain you. Because I made you to need Me and to need others. As these things fall around you, you will feel your fears. But in facing them, order will arise out of the chaos. I will rebuild your walls and you will stand as I intended for you to stand… Leaning on your Beloved.

Song of Solomon 8:5b “Who is this coming up from the wilderness Leaning of her Beloved?”

Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; think about Him in all your ways, and He will guide you on the right paths.

mourning dove

The letter kills but My Spirit gives life. There is a season of loss and grief that is necessary for you to realize My resurrection in you. As you count yourself dead to sin, you will come to life through My power in you. The Dove came down on Me as I came out of the water of baptism. As you come alive My Dove is released and will lead you as one risen with Me. My Spirit calls to you and says “Arise My darling, come away My beautiful one. The winter is past, the season of singing has come.” Don’t seek to be wise, seek to be surrendered to Me.  I am calling you to allow My Spirit the freedom in you to bring you into a deeper relationship with Me.~Jesus

2 Corinthians 3:6 For the letter kills, but the Spirit produces life.

2 Corinthians 3:3 It is clear that you are Christ’s letter, produced by us, not written with ink but with the Spirit of the living God- not on stone tablets but on tablets that are hearts of flesh.

Matthew 3:11 “I baptize you with water for repentance, but the One who is coming after me is more powerful than I. I am not worthy to remove His sandals. He Himself will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire”.

Song of Solomon 2:10 My love calls to me: Arise my darling. Come away, my beautiful one.
