Whatever strikes my fancy now and then....

We are sons and daugthers of God.

"This is my son in whom I am well pleased. " I say that about my son. God spoke those words about his son Jesus in the Bible.

I am so pleased that my son, Ari Ben, comes to my site and reads my thoughts here at my blog journal. This is a good place to share what the Spirit has told me...

Dayton Conner Pozos is my awesome grandson! If he has the heart of gold like my son possesses, then Dayton will grow up with God's light in his eyes. Recently my son called me the day after he heard some troubling news. Ari said to me, "I had five minutes of joy today." I could feel his joy flow into my heart and soul. When your soul is discouraged, praise the Lord. When you fear the unknown, praise the Lord. When you need a miracle, praise the Lord. God inhabits the praises of his people.

Life is like a box of chocolates! You never know what you will get. One thing that is for sure is if you put God first in your life you are promised
God's favor. God's favor is very powerful. God will grant extra special
favors to you. Ari Ben means "Lion of God" in Hebrew. Ari Ben is favored by God. I remember when he was small and I had him dedicated at my church, The Promiseland in Austin, Tx. Ari Ben was just a small bundle of joy. My pastor held him and lifted him up to God in prayer and asked Jesus to light the paths of his life and let the Son shine on him. Well, one thing I know for sure is prayer works. I have petitioned Jesus many times in prayer. He has reached down with the favor of God and answered my prayers.

Do you have God's favor in your life?

If not,

"Knock and the door will be opened"
"Ask and you shall be answered"
"Seek and you shall find"

Jesus does require us to knock, ask and seek; then we opened the door, are answered and we walk through the door into God's favor.

David from the Bible was favored my God. David was a man after God's own heart! David wrote the Psalms of the Bible. He was either on the mountain top praising and dancing to God,or he was in the valley of the shadow of death hiding from his enemies. God always came through for David. God's favor is a powerful thing!

My second favorite book is the Prophet by Gibran. Here he speaks of love.

"Speak to us of Love."
And he raised his head and looked upon the people, and there fell a stillness upon them. And with a great voice he said:
When love beckons to you follow him,
Though his ways are hard and steep.
And when his wings enfold you yield to him,
Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.
And when he speaks to you believe in him,
Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden.
For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning.
Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun,
So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth.
Like sheaves of corn he gathers you unto himself.
He threshes you to make you naked.
He sifts you to free you from your husks.
He grinds you to whiteness.
He kneads you until you are pliant;
And then he assigns you to his sacred fire, that you may become sacred bread for
God's sacred feast.
All these things shall love do unto you that you may know the secrets of your heart, and in that knowledge become a fragment of Life's heart.
But if in your fear you would seek only love's peace and love's pleasure,
Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love's threshing-floor,
Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears.
Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.
Love possesses not nor would it be possessed;
For love is sufficient unto love.
When you love you should not say, "God is in my heart," but rather, I am in the heart of God."
And think not you can direct the course of love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.
Love has no other desire but to fulfil itself.
But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at the noon hour and meditate love's ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude;
And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips.
As the Beatles said in one of their songs, "All you need is love."
As John wrote in the Bible, "God is love."
As David Crosby said, "Everyone is saying the music is love."
As I say, "May the mysteries of God's love inhabit your soul. May God's love be the song in your heart."

Fall into the loving arms of Jesus. He always is there to catch your fall.
