NEW VISION

”Come up here.
Come outside.
Lift up your eyes.

Lift your eyes, high above the distractions and snares.

I ’ve got so much more for you.
So much more.

Follow me.
There is so much more to explore.
So much more to see.
New ways, new roads, new freedom for you to walk in.

Let go of those heavy burdens.
My yoke is easy and my burden is light.

New vision. I breath my Spirit upon you.
Be free.”

”For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
/Isaiah 55:8-9

”Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”
/1 Corinthians 2:9

Summer breeze

He sends his word and melts them; he stirs up his breezes, and the waters flow.” /Psalms 147:18

”My beloved spoke and said to me, “Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, come with me.

See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land.

The fig tree forms its early fruit; the blossoming vines spread their fragrance.

Arise, come, my darling; my beautiful one, come with me.”
/Song of Songs 2:10-13

”You heavens above, rain down my righteousness;
    let the clouds shower it down.
Let the earth open wide,
    let salvation spring up,
let righteousness flourish with it;
    I, the Lord, have created it.”
/Isaiah 45:8

”Your love is like a warm breeze.
The warmth of your breath is melting my fear away.

Your sun, your love, gently unfolds my so tightly wrapped up defense.
Like heavy chains falling off, one by one.

Now I’m free. Bursting into summer. Blossoming.

THE POWER OF GRACE

”But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”
/2 Korinth 12:9

When I fall,
I fall into your everlasting arms
You uphold me

I don’t have to have it all toghether
You hold me toghether


I don’t have to be strong
You are strong

I can shake off those heavy burdens
No need of them on my shoulders

Lighter, I can see clearly;

You carry me
So I can be carefree, in the care of God.

You remind me:
”Do not be afraid, I will never leave you. I will never forsake you.

My thoughts and plans for you are only good, I have a future and a hope for you.”

I trust you. You are my saviour, healer, shepherd and friend.

GRACIOUS

”The Lord is gracious and full of compassion,
Slow to anger and great in mercy.

The Lord is good to all,
And His tender mercies are over all His works.”

”The Lord upholds all who fall,And raises up all who are bowed down. The eyes of all look expectantly to You,

And You give them their food in due season.
You open Your hand
And satisfy the desire of every living thing.

The Lord is righteous in all His ways, Gracious in all His works.

The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, To all who call upon Him in truth.

He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He also will hear their cry and save them.”

Psalms 145:8-9, 14-19

STREAMS OF LIVING WATER

STREAMS OF LIVING WATER

”The wilderness and the dry land shall be glad, the desert shall rejoice and blossom;like the crocus it shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice with joy and singing.””For waters shall break forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert;the burning sand shall become a pool, and the thirsty ground springs of water;”Isaiah 35:1, 6

”Let anyone who is thirsty come to me, and let the one who believes in me drink. As the scripture has said, ‘Out of the believer’s heart shall flow rivers of living water.” /Jesus John 7:37

WHERE MY STRENGHT COMES FROM


”He gives power to the faint,
and strengthens the powerless.

Even youths will faint and be weary,
and the young will fall exhausted;

but those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength,
they shall mount up with wings like eagles,
they shall run and not be weary,
they shall walk and not faint.”
/Isaiah 40:27-30

Many of us thinks that strenght comes from being buzy and doing stuff. But sloooowly I’m starting to realize that it is the opposite. It’s only in the stillness, before God, when I lay my burdens and all my striving down, I find my strenght, true peace, rest, lightness, hope, joy, love and life.

”Come to me all you who are weary,
and I will give you rest.”
/Matthew 11:29 

MY RESTING PLACE

”This is my resting place for ever: here will I dwell;
for I have desired it.”/Psalms 132:14

”How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord Almighty!
My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.

Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young—a place near your altar, Lord Almighty, my King and my God.

Blessed are those who dwell in your house; they are ever praising you.

Blessed are those whose strength is in you, whose hearts are set on pilgrimage.”/Psalms 84
