We Hear So Many
We hear so many say, More of You, less of me. But the Lord isn't trying to get rid of us! Perhaps we should say, More of You in me. That is His desire for us, for
He enters us to make us whole and heal us!
My Grandmother Grew Up In
The Depression Era
By Kathy Mote
My grandmother grew up in the depression era. In a time where even food was scarce, she paid to have
her portrait done. Not just once, but many times. When she went to be with Him, we found dozens of them.
I found this deeply curious, and I said so to the Lord, even as I was gazing at my own reflection
in the mirror. And then all at once it hit me. I am of the same heart posture she was!
I cried out to the Lord, willing to offer Him my vanity. What He said was, “Don't worry about it.” Well,
thank you very much, but I am VAIN! What can I do about it? This time, His answer was, “I will handle it.”
This was over 30 years ago and I am almost 64 years old now. In those years I purposely
did not behave in what I knew to be a vain manner, but I found that vanity is really a quality of the heart that does not see Him. So, vanity is pride that comes from seeing self instead of seeing Him, but knowing this did not heal me.
For that 30 years I walked in a repentant heart. Oh, did I desire to see Him, know Him, please Him, be with Him, bask in His presence and know His approval, which I have learned is His presence in me. I yearned for Him like one who is cold would
desire a warm ray of sunshine to wrap up in.
But as I near my 64th year of being stuck in this flesh that weighs me down, burdens and deceives me, He has shown me His purpose in what I have come to know
as my deepest place of surrender, my sense of self. His love for me has taught me a deep desire for Him, and that is how He healed me.
So this is what He has done to heal me. As He prepared my heart for
Him, He made it His own, and now in my heart I know and see Him. He knew what He was doing when He made us as we are, for who we are without Him is what we surrender to receive Him. That is the great exchange, dear Lord, Your heart and Your Life for mine as
you Live and move in me to heal me. That is how I see You.
You Have To Give Him Your Heart
By Kathy Mote
You have to give Him your heart to know His love for you, because He enters your heart to show you His love for you. This will be
an ongoing relationship as He reveals His heart to you.
By Kathy Mote
In a vision, the Lord showed me something, and I would like to share. He said He made us who we are, and as He
speaks, our hearts hear Him. Like little flowers growing in the world, we are of Him and we will come to Him. He said His voice resonates in our heart, and like flowers growing in the sun, we rise to be near Him. As He speaks, His voice enters our heart, but
those who are not of Him don't hear Him.
He said that with His breath He fills us and the sound of His voice is what lifts us. That is why we are beginning to see we are different, but that should not
alarm us. There is a truth hidden deep in His heart, and that is what He will reveal in us. We are few, but we come to Him as He calls us.
So with His breath He awakens us, for our heart is where His heart
is revealed. His presence is His influence. Man has thought that his destiny was up to him, but to understand what God is doing, you have to see His heart on this. He is creating His image in each of us and He is not finished. He is about to prove man's thinking
to be baseless. He will disavow every falsehood by His glory in us.
So, Beloved, don't think it strange that your trials have left you humbled. It was always His presence humbling you to bring you to Him,
for being humbled is part of belonging to Him. Humility is how He dresses, warms, keeps, fills, cherishes and protects, calls and gathers His children to Him. You are the expression of His heart, and He has carefully nurtured and tended you.
If You Feel The Lord Pressing
By Kathy Mote
If you feel the Lord pressing your heart, be encouraged by what an act of love this is. Our Father corrects
our heart to change our nature by impressing us with the desire for Him.
Do You Remember The Story of
By Kathy Mote
Do you remember the story of the Phoenix, who in the heat of conflict goes up in flames, only to rise from
the ashes with twice the strength because no matter the conflict, she is what she is called to be? This is the Lord's Beloved today.
The Lord Showed Me
The Lord showed me something that should have comforted my heart. It made me feel frustrated until I surrendered my heart to Him on the entire subject of sharing His heart. To do that humbled
me to my core. I don't know why it was so difficult, but I will share.
I stand alone in my relationship with Him. Everyone does. What He is doing in me is by His presence, and it is impossible to 'share'.
You can speak to someone night and day of the living God, but until He speaks to THEIR heart, they do not hear Him. As He brings us into Him by entering our heart, that is where we are. That is the only way to know Him.
This is not a lonely life, it is a magnificent life. We don't fit in the world because the world doesn't fit in with us. That is a different perspective, and it is one that doesn't hurt.
By Kathy Mote
The Lord's agenda is not a carnal one. It is His desire that His heart be established in our heart. This establishes
us. His plan is not to bring a carnal Kingdom to the earth, it is to bring His Life breath by His presence into us. Of course He provides for us! He is gentle and tender and quite generous.
Those who desire
Him to bring their desires to Earth miss the point of all He desires for their heart. Their priorities are all mixed up as they neglect to seek His heart. They look for the expression of their carnal desires. They forgot to desire Him, the Giver of Life.
The Lord said something to me that filled my heart with excitement for what lies ahead. He said, If you knew what was coming, you would be delighted, not unsure and afraid. Trust Me instead. As you trust Me, you will
look forward to My will. To bring you into My will is my delight in you.
🥀A word about the picture that was chosen for this post. It speaks deeply of what it feels like to fit only in the deep and secret
place and nowhere else. We know and live in the deep of His heart, but the deeper we go, the more foreign we are to the world. I think it is beautiful because it touched my heart. Please forgive me. I mean no offense.
There Is A Man
There is a man who would be king. His place in time was taken from him, but God's plan is not being delayed. People either love him or hate him. Those who love
him know God's purpose in him. Those who hate him don't see that he is a spear in God's hand. Those who don't see the Lord's plan walk in their flesh.
Hard to blame them, the Lord doesn't reveal His plan
to those who oppose it. But I am sent to say that nothing will stop God's perfect plan. He is giving the enemy enough rope to hang himself with. That is God's purpose in what we are seeing today. The Lord is refining every heart.
