New world..New Kingdom.

I was never very interested in religion. People assume religiosity is a given, when you introduce the fact that you are a christian. But this is not so. Too many harsh wars have been created by religiosity. My ideas of being a christian are simple. I Know-Jesus. He is my salvation from this life, corruption, and death. He gives me life, hope and love. I know my Father in heaven, has an ultimate plan and purpose for me in this life, and through his Spirit, I am able to accomplish it.

 My eyes have been opened to a new world. A new Kingdom, my first experiences of this world came years ago, when I realized that I did not want to live, unless I had something worth living for! I started to open my heart to God, hear his gentle voice and was guided by his spirit.
 I am a very visual person. I love colour and creativity. I was designed and created this way. So when I experience another piece of God, it is usually through visual form. I have dreams, I see visions, and I am blessed to see God in this way.

 I become very much like a little girl, watching a colourful cartoon when I see things of heaven in my minds eye. I am awe struck with the way God opens up revelations to me and teaches me about himself and his kingdom. I love sharing these times with others also, to help them see God in this way too.
 I used to run a lot. (before having my children) I used to put on some jogging clothes, drive to the beach where I lived in Wales, get out the car, in the crisp coolness of an evening and I would head toward the miles of flat sand. I always liked to go, when it was dark enough to see the moon. The wet sand would become like glass, and the reflection of the sky would be mirrored on the surface below my feet. I would be running on top of the clouds, towards the great round light of the moon. It was beautiful. I would run and speak with God and pour out my heart to him.

 One evening, the moon was low on the horizon and its reflection was as clear as crystal on the vast wet sands below. I stopped to take it in. I heard the voice of God speak to me. " Which is more real to you, the skies above or the reflection below?" I stopped to think, Knowing God never speaks without reason, I pondered on my reply. " I believe that the skies above are the reality and that the reflection below is mearly a reflection..but what are you trying to show me here God?"

 He answered, " My kingdom should become in your heart a reality. My world exists, parallel to your world, yet to you it is like a blurry reflection. I want my world, to become so crystal clear to you, that you have to question what is more real to you. Make yourself intimately acquainted with my kingdom, by spending time with me in heavenly places..this way, you will change your world into a clear reflection of heaven."

I have never forgotten that lesson. I came away, feeling like my mind had been blown away, to think outside of the box that we have been born into.
 It is like walking around with one eye shut. There is so much evidence, even in this life, of new realms of creation. Life under the sea is another world we have little understanding of, because we live above water. Yet, it doesn't stop all of that sea life and wonders of the deep existing! We are just unaware of it.
 Choose this day, to become more intimately acquainted with your heavenly Father,read of his word & let his spirit guide you into all truth. Let him show you his kingdom and life, which will cause you to walk in a very different way. Touching heaven and changing earth.

For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand [anywhere else]; I would rather be a doorkeeper and stand at the threshold in the house of my God than to dwell [at ease] in the tents of wickedness.-psalms

 O you who dwell in the gardens, your companions have been listening to your voice--now cause me to hear it.-song of solomon

Pretty, crystal, blue with little pink hearts.

Has anyone else noticed how recent perfume bottles appear to be getting more elaborate looking?
I personally, love walking through the perfume isles in Debenhams, taking in all the fancy, ornate bottles and smelling all the different scents. I find myself, like a moth to the flame, reaching for the bottles that are pleasing to the eye. Somehow, with a connection in mind, that if it looks so pretty and feminine, it must smell divine also!
Oh - how I am wrong sometimes!!
Many times I have taken a deep intake of a breath through my delicate nostrils, to be slapped in the face with a horrific waft of nastiness! I pull a face and promptly return the bottle to its shelf and move on.
I am also, often surprised by the sweet and pleasant smells that come out of the very plain and simple looking bottles.
How we can see this happening  in life sometimes. So often we see people who are very attractive in their external features. They are well dressed, well spoken & well presented individuals. But, sometimes what comes out of their hearts can smack us in the face, like a nasty smell!
Outward appearances are not always a key to the internal heart of a man.

2 corinthians 4:7
We now, have this light shining in our hearts, but we are like fragile clay pots, containing this great treasure.

As you go about your week, keep this thought in mind. Do not judge those around you or make assumptions on what they are like , by their external appearances. Take a moment to remember the perfume isle. Appearances are often deceiving. Take the time to look within, to take a waft of the beautiful scents of peoples spirits & hearts. Look at them with Gods eyes. The greatest treasures can often exist in the simplest of pots.

Pretty and carved, beautifully.
Ornate in design, shaped elaborately.

Fancy and fussy,with flowers and trim.
I cant wait to smell, what comes from within!

Oh, oh you caught me off guard,
oh, oh, I feel you are flawed,
Oh oh, you look so divine,
but oh oh, you're no friend of mine!

Perfume, you are , not appealing to me,
your like perfume, that is so flawed, 
you look like you are the part, but i was so wrong.

God in his infinite wisdom, 
created the inner man.
The best part of us,
 is not how we look, but of the flavor of hearts.

we're like perfume, hidden within,
fragile and delicate pots.
we're like perfume hidden within,
fragile and delicate pots.

A recent song-in reflection.

There is a table, laid out before us.
Its a feast, for you and I.
will you come to eat and drink, before him.
Or will you remain the same?

There is love and life and truth here
and its all laid all out, for free.
There is love and life and truth here
and its all, for you & me

We're running this race.
come on !
Pick up the pace.
we're running for him.
We're running this race.
come on !
Pick up the pace.
We're running for Jesus

Step up to the table,
Stretch out your arms,
Take eat, of his presence,
and feel his  loving arms (embrace you.)

Step up to the table,
Come drink of the wine.
His blood will cleanse you,
from all that brings harm.

His love ever flowing,
 It is laid all out for you.
Come & feast here forever
On his light and life and truth.

Feast on love and truth and life
It will feed, clothe  & protect you
all and through your life.
This is not the time to live for you
This is our time to live for him...
