My Favorite Revelator

gaillovesgodspoetry

A God in heaven that revealeth secrets,
To make known what is in man’s heart.
He setteth up His Kingdom,
And tears others apart.
He revealeth true intentions.
He delivers delightful surprises.
He uses dreams to break our pride,
In some our hope arises.
He whispers secrets so personal
He’s jealous to defend.
For if we say a word to others,
It will not make any sense.
He giveth knowledge to the understanding.
He giveth wisdom to the wise.
He is the Light in the darkness.
He opens the blinded eyes.
This same God who loves me,
And whispers which way to go.
I trust Him with my secrets,
And all the things I do not know.

Such A Gift

Christ is such a GIFT! He was given and given so much on our behalf. What a gift to know Him, love Him, and serve Him. I pray that you are able to accept and enjoy your gift in Him too! ❤
God is such a GIFT! He has been generous with us from the moment He gave us life. Without Him, nothing and no one would be. The most precious thing He ever gave me… was His Son! He gave Him for you too! God loves you! ❤
The Holy Ghost is such a GIFT! He gives me guidance, comfort, and peace that passeth all understanding! The most beautiful comfort He ever gave anyone was to my Savior as He hung on the cross for me and you. He is more than willing to give you the peace and comfort you seek! The Holy Ghost loves you! ❤

The Days Were Accomplished

“And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judæa, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)
to be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.
And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.”
– Luke 2:4-7 KJV

Today, Lord, You emphasize to me that Joseph too was a part of Your great plan. All of it was You… Mary as the chosen obedient virgin… Jesus being conceived of the Holy Ghost within that obedient virgin… Joseph being a chosen obedient lineage of David… the city of Bethlehem being the birthplace… Nazareth having something good to come out of her… being taxed together to historically record their union and location at the time of the birth… and that the days were accomplished according to the One who designed them.

Your Son would be born and wrapped in a manger because You led them to an inn with no room… representing each human heart that has no room for You. But just as every soul that filled that inn had purpose in accomplishing Your plans, You sent Your Son to save each one of us from ourselves. Your Son represents the love You have for each one of us, and the lengths You are willing to go to… to help us see You… to welcome You… to love You.

You do not force any of us into a relationship, but are more than willing to make such powerful statements with Your love, as no one knows better than You, our nature to judge the greater the humility and mercy one shows us the more they must really love us. Thank You for loving us more than we could ever understand! Thank You for loving us!

I love You too, Father! ❤
I love You, Jesus! ❤
I love You, Holy Ghost! ❤

According To Thy Word

“And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren. For with God nothing shall be impossible. And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.”
– Luke 1:35-38 KJV

This morning’s whispers from You, Lord, are pretty cool, and so personal. You told Mary that her cousin Elisabeth was pregnant before anyone else did, and before Mary went to see Elisabeth. You told her it was a son before there was such thing as an ultrasound. You told her that Elisabeth was 6 months along in her pregnancy. You reminded her of Elisabeth being of old age and called Barren (not that she was any longer! 🙂 ). You pointed out to Mary these things (and how much more in those words only You and Mary know) in telling her/answering her in how it was possible for her own self to have a child without knowing a man yet.

No wonder she believed the angel that said with God nothing shall be impossible. No wonder she had no doubts in what You could do for her, or through her with being pregnant with the Son of God. No wonder she believed everything according to Thy word. I know we think of Mary as just a humble spirit, but it’s no wonder that she also had excitement in her spirit. It made her no less humble.

May we be obedient in believing that nothing with You shall be impossible. May we humbly accept Your will… the Lord of our lives. May we trust You with what we don’t understand, even when You speak so openly clear with us. Thank You for being willing to speak clearly and patiently with us. Thank You for sending Your Spirit, Your angels, and all things that You know would encourage us to believe.

Thank You for being the wonderful God that You always are! Thank You for sending us Your Son. Thank You for allowing the world to know Him as a tender and precious baby. Thank You for allowing us to celebrate with You… the pregnancy announcement… and the journey of waiting for His arrival… the great anticipation You allow us to experience with You… in allowing us to read Your word. And to join in the celebration of His arrival all these years later… and every joyful year at Christmas.

Congratulations, Lord, on the arrival of Your Son!
He’s so absolutely and magnificently wonderful!
Thank You for allowing me to love Him too! 🙂 ❤
And You! ❤ 🙂

Gifts 2017 #4 Family, Heaven, Technology

Christmas Countdown: Family is a gift. As we have lost so many, it makes each one still here a gift. I thank God for my sister Sandra, my son Anthoni, my brother Nathan Brookshire, my brother-in-law Tim, my stepdad Bobby, my uncles, my aunts, and of all my cousins, and that includes adopted, foster, and in-laws. I will be tagging you each that I can on FB. The most important thing we learn from family is we do not choose them. God does. God wants us to know it’s ALL about being His children, and trusting in God the Father, His precious Son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. We are ALL family in Him. THANK YOU, GOD ❤ for family!!

Heaven is a gift. Heaven is not just a place that awaits us, but it holds some of the people whom we love and miss so dearly! We have family, friends, church family, and so many more safely in the arms of the One Christmas is all about. We will meet that special Someone some day, and His Dad! And just think… all of those He used US to either lead to salvation or encourage in some way will be there too! Then one final Christmas day, WE will receive our gift of entering Heaven, and taking up residence in the home He went away to prepare for us! ❤

Technology is a GIFT: It may seem trivial to say this, but by the grace of God there is so much that can be done through technology: listening to audio-bibles, sermons, hymns, Christian radio, Christian Christmas music, encouraging others, praying for others, watching a plane fly across the country to keep up with loved ones making it safely home, using Google maps to help someone lost while on cellphone, and so much more, including this moment of being able to praise my Lord before the world! ❤ Love you, Father! ❤ Love you, Jesus! ❤ Love you, Holy Ghost! ❤

Great and Mighty

Great and mighty is the Lord our God.
Worthy and honorable is the great JAH.
Our tongues and voices should never cease
to praise the God of eternal peace.
He created our bodies and souls.
He created the world which He controls.
He gives us mercy and shares grace.
He sent His only Son to save.
He resurrected His precious Son
to send to us the Holy One.
The Holy Ghost comforts us,
all because of the blood of Jesus.
How great God is to share so much
and all because of perfect love.
Sing ye people, sing of earth!
Sing of God and His mighty worth!
