"Entangled with Joy" an uplifting word to "un" tangle and reconnect with the heart
So back to my search for something to give you!
One of the most encouraging things I have found is to watch or to listen to ourselves recorded. I heard a testimony from a saxophonist who was hospital bound with not long to live. The Lord told him to play his "videos" of himself playing the saxophone. The sound of his personal ministry healed him in three days; they released him from the hospital with a clean bill of health. That testimony has stuck with me.
Testimonies are found seated within the mercy seat of Christ. Exodus 25:22 You shall put the mercy seat on top of the ark, and in the ark, you shall put the testimony which I will give to you. Testimonies are alive. They are God's agreement, it's His will, and He desires to do it again. That is why He holds them within the Mercy seat of Christ. Not one of the articles placed inside but within the covering. Cherubim look into them.
I just re-listened to a short audio of my teaching, titled an Encouraging word from a bible study series I called the Many Moods of Minnie. Yes, Minnie, the mouse. That's another story. I found it buried in old files and recorded on a phone before they were "Smart." I think its almost 15 yrs old. It took me a bit to place it until I recognize familiar laughs from the audience. Just to hear them again touched me. We move on in many ways but hearing joy bubbling reminded me of what He has done inside of me. That is the heart of Thanksgiving a grateful "remembering" for what He has accomplished. It's a work of the heart.
My personal revelation has grown, thankfully I didn't bite my teeth with something I said. It encouraged me to continue to believe, to press forward, pursue. That God still believes in me, that I will accomplish His good pleasure throughout my life.
It blessed me. I believe it will bless you.
I re-found a lost treasure,
My gift to you.
Put your headphones on while you're making pumpkin pie or getting down the Christmas boxes from the attic. Enjoy your family.
No really, enjoy your family.
