Cover

The technological strides in our world today bring our generation such conveniences as never before. With the wave of dealing deliveries and online everything, comes the convenience of having church without being in one. I am not against telecast ministries, on the contrary. I glean a lot from them.I do not have any problem with e-ministries. The inbox can attest to that 🙂 What i seek to speak of is a cover. Are you covered?

To glean of Him through whichever source is an important lesson especially to the many anomalies that make up living as we know it. But the value of belonging to an actual church, having the cover of not just a pastor. But the grace He bestows upon the house set apart, where two or three gather in His name is an important facet that we may be quick to let go of in our embracing of the conveniences available to us.

Only when planted in His house will we flourish in His courts. The fellowship of believers strengthens us and the cover of His altar blesses us.

Only when planted in His house will we flourish in His courts. The fellowship of believers strengthens us and the cover of His altar blesses us. I pray that He draws us to churches He ordains for these are different times. Many are just but beautiful halls with empty altars giving watered down wine to those who will walk through its doors.

That we may obtain cover and the impartation of graces much wiser than we. And with them not only grow, but be better equipped to fulfil Hiss will for us. You may have tried it before just to be turned away by the very arms you longed will welcome you home with an embrace. I pray that His healing grace may draw you back, that such may not stand between you and His inner courts. That He may guide us to shepherds He will use to guide us to the point of alignment with his will for us.

Seek not a perfect one, none exists. For if the church were without spot or blemish, w would be on the other side of heaven right about now. Rather. seek Him on the mater. he is faithful to answer and guide you not just to a church but to an alter ordained by He. to a family chosen for you. And there you will experience a rush as the rain falls and your roots are spurred and your leaves sprout in season. And there you will bear much fruit.

Leaning

It is becoming increasingly difficult
This leaning on everlasting arms
Because every once in an often while
I tumble over and realize I wasn’t really leaning on what I thought I was
I know the only way to let it out;
This fragrance kept so safely inside is like Mary –
To break this shell that holds it in
Yet often I’m afraid I’ve had it too long I forgo the value inside for the worth of the gates that hold it back
Mary understood what I have trouble remembering
That the box was to hold it all for just a while
That it became when its walls would let loose
I am afraid to break Lord
I am afraid
But You have not given me a spirit of fear
So help me find this strength You see in me
…this strength you leave in me
Because…
It is becoming increasingly difficult
This leaning on everlasting arms
