You Are Loved

Remember who you are....a child of God

Remember what you are here to teach.... you are unconditionally Loved

Awaken

"We are the sons and daughters of the Father, through Yeshua. You are risen with Christ. Awaken to the power of your resurrection in Christ."

Leave Heart Prints Wherever You Go


"Whatever our hands touch -
We leave fingerprints!
On walls, on furniture
On doorknobs, dishes, books.
There is no escape.
As we touch we leave our identity.

Wherever I go today
Help me leave heart prints!
Heart prints of compassion
 Of understanding and love.

Heart prints of kindness
And genuine concern.
May my heart touch a lonely neighbor
Or a runaway daughter
Or an anxious mother
Or perhaps an aged grandfather.

Send me out today
To leave heart prints.
And if someone should say,
"I felt your touch,"
May they also sense the love
 that is deep within my heart."

Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone), Chris Tomlin


Chris Tomlin – Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone) 
From the album – Until The Morning

 Chorus:
Amazing grace How sweet the sound That saved a wretch like me
 I once was lost, but now I'm found Was blind, but now I see
 'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear And grace my fears relieved
 How precious did that grace appear The hour I first believed

 My chains are gone I've been set free
 My God, my Savior has ransomed me
 And like a flood His mercy reigns
 Unending love, amazing grace
 The Lord has promised good to me
 His word my hope secures
 He will my shield and portion be
 As long as life endures

 The earth shall soon dissolve like snow
 The sun forbear to shine
 But God, who called me here below
 Will be forever mine Will be forever mine

Deditio


Deditio: (latin for 'unconditional surrender')

“Trust only in his Way, his Truth, his Life.” 

Forgiveness.... no fear...... Deditio,
knowing no one and no thing can hurt us

For all you Ted Dekker fans out there... #outlaw #deditio #theoutlawchronicles #teddekker #penandink #art #design #artisticdesign


"Do you know this word Austin?”
“Deditio.”
“And it’s meaning?”
“It’s latin for unconditional surrender. The demand of the Roman empire when it conquered its subjects.”
“The same Romans sometimes exacted that total surrender using a cross. But in the end, it’s surrender that conquers."
~ Ted Dekker (from "Eyes Wide Open")

Obedience is Spiritual Alignment


When God's Will becomes our own, we are in union. Obedience is Alignment with our true Self.


"Today we consider a lie and send it shrinking away like a tired old wolf who has lost its teeth. The lie is in our understanding of obedience.

When we hear the word obedience we often feel the burden of its demands on us. But today, think of obedience in its truer context. Obedience is simply alignment with light and beauty.

A bolt obeys a nut when you screw it in, unless they are out of alignment. A horse surrenders its resistance and obeys its master when it comes into alignment with that master, as one, joined in agreement. Now back to the lie. We have been led to believe that we are unworthy and must obey another, Yeshua, who is worthy. It is true that Yeshua is worthy, the lamb who is perfect. He is the Christ.

But you too are now worthy, one in Him. You too are one with Christ, because as Paul writes, Christ is all (is you) and in all (in you.) So aligning yourself with Christ is also aligning yourself with your true Self.

Today, align yourself with the truth of who you are in Christ which is your true identity. Align the small self you think of as you, with the self that is glorified and who is already one with Christ. Align your experience of this life with your 'Christed' Self and you will be in obedience to the Word because you too are now the Word--the manifest expression of God in an earthen vessel.

In Union with Christ there can be no other way. Christ in you and you in Christ (which is Christ as you) IS the only Way. There is no other way to know yourself as the daughter of the Father but by this. Indeed, this IS salvation as we know it.

Today, align yourself with who you are, and let all the lies of who you are not slink away like the toothless wolves they are.

What good news this is! Look at what Yeshua has done for you and be in awe of the lamb who was slain to glorify you! How beautiful you are! It is a good day to be alive!

Know thy Self."
