From these eyes.

Looking out, from within,
I gaze at my life, 
here on earth.
Through these eyes of mine,
I watch.

Like a cinematic screen,
the movie rolls,
I see my teen years, my childish laugh.
My playful banter,
jumping in the hay.

Running through the grassy fields,
singing with my friends,
friendships gone,
but not forgotten.

Conversations recalled,
hands held,
family members embraced.
Through these eyes,
I watch.

I see my life,
through these eyes,
 I am the same inside.
As life plays on,
stopping for no one, 
through these eyes,
I watch. 

I am the same,
being carried along.
My body, outside, begins to age.
But I remain the same.
Behind these eyes,
I watch. 

People I have loved,
people I have lost.
I can not return to these scenes,
that play before my eyes.
I can not embrace those hands,
those hearts.
The time is gone,
This play goes on,
behind these eyes,
I watch.

This came out of a dream I had, where I re lived my past, from a binocular type of view, through my own eyes.
As I remembered all the days that I had lived, I embraced those past days.
 I  felt deeply effected.
At the end of the dream,
I was speaking to an old friend,
and in conclusion I was telling her that I get effected by sentimentality. It always stirs me, moves me and causes me to make a change some how.
 At the end of the dream, I was an old lady.
Perhaps it is a reminder at how fast these years on earth are?
Perhaps it is a reminder that we need to embrace those around us while we still can?
It certainly made me think.

Can of christianity please...

I had a vision/picture last night of liquid gold being poured out on earth from heaven, people loved this liquid and drank freely of it- those who were thirsty.

Then people began to package the pure liquid, labeling it in tin cans, like '7up', 'coke', 'tango' etc. As time went on, these labels became more about traditional and unique styles, causing division with others who drank of a differing can.
Some only drank on sundays, in a particular way, with a certain food, others didn't even like the drink, they just liked the social element of the preferred group.

Then there were those, who didn't chose a label to drink from, but found the source of the liquid for themselves! They were hooked up to the mainline and became intoxicated with heavenly revelations and to other groups looked crazy!

But God said to me, 'There will come a day when I will strip away all the labels and reveal the source of this liquid gold. It matters not which 'can' you drink from, what matters to me is your connection with me, divine love. I AM the source, I AM life, I AM the drink that will satisfy, and give you life. 'All who are thirsty, shall thirst no more, but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.' John 4.14

Create your own labels if you will... But God can not be put in a can, a box, a religion and be held there. His love COVERS the earth. His power, presence and light fill every crevice. Jesus made it possible for everyone to engage with the Father/Divine and how we connect to him is a personal matter, the important thing remains, God longs for you to KNOW him and feel his touch in your life..He is always searching for ways to get your attention, are your ears open and your eyes seeing?

Oh how he loves us!

I once had a vision, where I was in the universe, being gently pulled along by something. Drawn magnetically, it seemed, to something in the vast universe. Soon I came to a stop, I found myself hovering, suspended in space. As I looked down at my feet, I saw darkness and space, to my left and right, stars, and darkness everywhere. Something was holding me carefully. I then saw infront of me. An enormous face!

I knew at once it was the face of God. As I looked into his huge, penetrative eyes, I saw the universe within his pupils, then I had this awareness that I was in his eyes also. This caused a strange sensation to fill my being. I felt his overwhelming love fill me, I felt like I was a part of Him, and that he contained me within his gaze. We were intimately connected. Surrounded and filled with this indescribable love, I came to the conclusion that traditions and religions have at times mis represented God. Standing face to face, I detected no hatred, anger or wrath. All I could feel was immense love. I was the apple of his eye, and he wanted me to know it! ♥ 

Oh how he loves us!

He has made My mouth like a sharp sword

Isaiah 49:2 He has made My mouth like a sharp sword, In the shadow of His hand He has concealed Me; And He has also made Me a select arrow, He has hidden Me in His quiver. ♥ 


God speaks

God gentle whispers, booming inner voices, in your surroundings, through music and lyrics, through angels, through a peaceful calm in your soul, though dead ends, through his word, his spirit, the mighty thunder, the trickling rain, the quiet breeze, the sun rising, the dreams you dream, the thoughts you think, words of others, and many, many other ways....are you listening? ♥


The veil was torn

The veil was torn, the separation between heaven and earth disolved in Jesus. Freely, in Him we can be re born into his light and love. We can walk in open spaces. Heavenly realms, where angels sing and glory abides. Here is where we find our true selves-the whole of us. Mind-body,spirit, soul. We are enlightened-set free from the chains that hold us to this carnal world. We have wings to fly-knowledge beyond our years, keys to doors in kingdoms unseen, eyes that see and ears that hear. heaven meets earth. He was the bridge for us to return home. Selah ♥


Nothing separates us.

Romans 8:38
And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. ♥ NOTHING can separate us from our LOVING God. ♥ NOTHING!! Oh how He loves us.


The great divide

There became a great division between myself and the mountain. A raging torrent stood between us. I would drown and die if I tried to get there by myself. I was overcome with grief. But you became the water, you calmed the raging waves and carried me, in your arms to the mountains heights. Here I dwell safely, in pastures of freedom and enlightenment. This is where I began, and this is where I shall end. Because of your perfect love, I am now free. ♥ (c) Rknight


wine skins

`Nor do they put new wine into old skins, and if not -- the skins burst, and the wine doth run out, and the skins are destroyed, but they put new wine into new skins, and both are preserved together.' The new wine-Gods spirit is going to pour out all over this earth. We were once empty, but we are being and will be filled again. Our spirit man, cries out and searches for restoration and it is found in Him. God - fill us afresh with your spirit of truth. We were made in your image in spirit, and we will find ourselves in you once more. ♥ 


Time to go to sleep my child

Time to go to sleep my child,
I will meet you in your dreams,
time to lay aside your striving,
fall back into my arms.
Time to close your eyes,
I know how heavy they have been,
fall in to the beauty of surrender,
Release that sigh,
those heavy thoughts,
the worries and the wonders,
You dont need to know..
I will meet you in your dreams,
I bring all things to life,
it is I who have the keys,
not you,
So Rest.
In the light of a new day,
you shall rise,
with the strength I have given,
you shall come back from the grave,
with the love that I have spilled.
Your voice will start to sing,
like the bird at the break of dawn,
the hope that fills your heart,
will fill those that mourn.
from your rest,
with the best

The gate has been opened

The gate to spiritual fulfilment has been re opened. The keys of the King have opened them up for you. Walk freely in your spiritual self once more. There is freedom and life within..OPen the eyes of your heart and step inside! ♥
'All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation'


His life for us

So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. {His ways are not our ways...They are so much better!!} ♥



Whenever, though, they turn to face God as Moses did, God removes the veil and there they are—face-to-face! They suddenly recognize that God is a living, personal presence, not a piece of chiseled stone. And when God is personally present, a living Spirit, that old, constricting legislation is recognized as obsolete. We're free of it! All of us! Nothing between us and God, our faces shining with the brightness of his face. And so we are transfigured much like the Messiah, our lives gradually becoming brighter and more beautiful as God enters our lives and we become like him.♥


New places to run free

' I found myself approaching a large green open field. I stood a moment taking in my new surroundings. A tree with low branches, casting shade and shelter to its own trunk lay directly in front of me. A river, ran quietly along the bank, the grass swayed back and forth in the gentle, warm breeze. I pulled in a deep breath. I could taste the warmth of the air and the sun was shining directly onto my face, warming my skin and filling me with a sweet, satisfied swell. My heart seemed to be skipping, like an excited child. As my eyes digested this new open space, I knew I was going to enjoy running, dancing, sitting, swimming, talking to my heavenly father and enjoying a time of close fellowship with Him. I felt like a little girl who had been given a wonderfully lavish gift and I was distinctly overwhelmed and excited at the same time.
' My father loves me!' I was all warm with gratitude. I felt as if, in this moment, scales were falling off my eyes and beams of warm light were melting away any misconceptions
of my fathers love toward me. For years I had been held in dark places, feeling that God was angry at me, that I was a failure and a mess. But my walk with Him just kept opening up more and more of his perfect love. It was undeniable and I was hooked. The more of his love I felt, the more freedom I felt. ' (c) Rebekah knight 2011


Living flame

'Keep your eyes fixed on me. I am your father; I created you. I know you. I see you. Every area of your being, I created. Every thought, every doubt, every desire, everything is for me and made by me. When you speak, it is my breath leaving your mouth. When you see, it is through my eyes. When you sing, it is my song upon your lips, when you dance; it is my movement that you express. I am going to turn you into a living flame. Like a flame, you will declare my existence, my life, my passion and my love. You will be a flame that consumes the lies. Your life will burn away the dross of religion and tradition that has portrayed me as a dull coal. They have said that I am unable to consume, that I am unable to ignite. You know the truth. Speak the truth. Do not fear; I am with you, to the end of the age. I am with you.’

[c] Rebekah knight 2012


You be the artist

"You be the artist, I will be your canvas.
I will be the stave, You can write my melody. 
I will be the song, You be the breath on my lips.
I will be the body, You be my spirit.
I will be the danse, You be the beat.
I will be the eyes, You be my vision.
I will be the runner, You will be the destination.
I will be the flower, You will be the beauty.
I will be the hands, You be the touch.
I will be the heart, You be the blood in my veins..
Heaven meets earth...within us. ♥ 

Shine like stars!
(c) 2012 Rebekah knight
{Galatians 2:20} It is no longer I that lives, but Christ that lives in me. ♥


A collection

Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
When you pass through the waters,
I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
you will not be burned;
the flames will not set you ablaze.
For I am the LORD your God,
the Holy One of Israel, your Savior;
Since you are precious and honored in my sight,
and because I love you! ♥

'See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.'
Isaiah 43:19

(13 April 2012 

I sense Change is in the air- Its just a feeling, a kind of gentle knowing...But whatever it is, I must embrace it, not fear it or try to work it all out. God knows my path, He will guide me on it, one step at a time. ♥

'Only the dead fish go with the flow!' Change comes in many forms, but does not come by following the masses. You might have to go on your own for a while. ♥ 


If I ride with you..

“If I ride the wings of the morning, if I dwell by the farthest oceans, even there your hand will guide me, and your strength will support me.” ~ Psalm 139:9-10



"But I'll take the hand of those who don't know the way,
who can't see where they're going.
I'll be a personal guide to them,
directing them through unknown country.
I'll be right there to show them what roads to take,
make sure they don't fall into the ditch.
These are the things I'll be doing for them—
sticking with them, not leaving them for a minute." GOD ;)




fallen on the potters wheel.

I was talking to God this morning and explaining how I felt. Things dont always turn out as you imagined or expected. But what I do beyond that is down to me. He gave me a picture of a potters wheel, a man making a beautiful vase, but it slipped on the wheel and wobbled out of shape, until the beauty had disappeared. It was not only a poor sight to look at, but its function and use as a vessel had also been taken away. It could not carry or hold any water or wine. As I looked at this broken lump of clay God spoke to my heart. "You are this broken lump, things have shaken you out of shape and disappointment has left you flat. But you have a choice, You can recreate another vase, or you can remain broken. Who knows, maybe the second attempt will look even greater than the first? Perhaps you will be glad that you fell flat, so that the next vase could emerge? Will you get back on the potters wheel and start again? For I can only fill empty vessels, I can not fill lumps of broken clay. ♥'
Perhaps you are facing a new start, a beginning, a new day, Do you feel afraid to start again? Trust in God. He has never forsaken you. He is always willing to meet you at your point of need.


God knows our limits

God knows our limits-He promises not too push us over them. When we feel like we can't go on a step further, He will lift us up, strengthen us and bring us hope. ♥ 


Embrace the rain

Embrace the rain, because it's going to fall.
Embrace the rain, even though it is wet and cold.
Embrace the rain, let it soak your skin.
Let it drench the clothes you are standing in.
Embrace the rain, because it is going to fall.
Embrace the rain, as it waters the land.
Embrace the rain, It will hide your tears,
Let it heal and wash away your fears.
Embrace the rain, because it's going to fall,
Theres no point hiding from it, wishing it away,
It is here for a season, It is here for a reason.
Embrace the rain, for it is beautiful.
Embrace the rain and let it refresh you.
Embrace the rain, for when the sun does shine.
Your heart will smile and you will thank the rain.

Every season in our lives, has a reason. Do not wish difficulties away, see the beauty in them, embrace them and allow the work to be done in your heart. It wont last forever ♥

Are you waiting for An answer to a prayer? Are you waiting for direction? Are you wondering if God is listening? Wait.
For as surely as the sun does rise every morning, God is there. He is in control and wanting the best for you. Seek him, talk to him, wait on him. Be patient. His warmth and wisdom will become apparent once more. The sun will rise on a new day for you. ♥
