Below is a great analogy of just how important each one of us are as a member of the Body of Christ and humanity. The author is unknown, but the story perfectly illustrates why we need each other.
The Value of One
As the story goes, a congregation built a new church building,
And people came from far and wide to see it. They admired
Its beauty! Up on the roof, a little nail heard the people
Praising everything about the lovely structure–except the
Nail! No one even knew he was there, and he became angry and jealous. “If I am that insignificant, nobody will miss me...
Know that I have heard your every whisper and have seen your every tear. The season you are about to enter is a time where I am coming on the scene so close, So close to you! I will touch and restore your hearts, And I will wipe away your tears. I will clear your vision so you can see again. This is coming, My dear ones, and is already here. Awake to it. No longer be hope deferred, for I am restoring your hope and renewing your joy. It's time to regain your strength and purpose. Know who you are in Me and stand in it. The Season of grief you've occupied in is coming to a close. Step forward and receive the freshness you're longing for.
I am ready to immerse you in your full recovery so you can enter into a new and refreshing place! Your metamorphosis stage is in full motion. Get ready to fly! Get ready to see yourself in a whole new light! I am coming on the scene! You are about to engage Me and life in a whole new way, and you'll never be the same. Prepare your heart and turn it towards Me. You're coming out of the cave and grave mentality, out of the house, out of the womb, and out of the Cocoon, into full new life and light!"
Look no longer behind you. You can't change the past, so why look there? Look ahead in front of you and discover the new path before you. It's filled with new places, new spaces, new faces, and new GRACES. No longer let the past become a stumbling block. Look ahead! Put one foot in front of the other and follow My lead. :) <3
God is Building A House of Habitation.... Do We know Where to Look and what to look for?
Read below as Papa God shares His heart, in what He's looking for, and how we can join in with what He's doing. Many of us will bare witness with joy at His words and what lays ahead. This was the word He had me release this last Saturday at the end of my message at Face to Face Ministries in Canada. Be encouraged! Amy <3
Ending Your Effort-filled Relationship With Survival
(Two Lovers -Two Trees)
Papa God shared...
The same fruit begets the same fruit in your life. You have to be willing to start eating from a different tree. When you eat from the Tree of Life, your taste buds change and develop. Again, life in Me is about feasting! So, wouldn't you say it's not through your own self-effort and disciplined ways? It is a matter of developing new tastebuds by changing what your eating and feasting on?
The fastest way to dig yourself out of an internal hole is to look for the light.
Not just any light, but the light cascading on the ladder of gratitude and appreciation. It is the key in turning things around for you. Gratitude and appreciation will dig you out of your slump. So climb aboard! It will guide you up to where the light shines, where you can warm your soul.
If you are looking through the darkness of despair, you will remain cold and calloused. Place yourself in the light. Let it warm your eyes and soften your heart. Choose today to live and abide in My presence. Receive My grace, which will allow you to express your gratitude and appreciation. The warmth of My love will envelop you and rescue you from the cave of your thoughts and daunting surroundings. In Me, you shall find hope and peace, and truly the rest your soul is looking for.

Isaiah 26:3 You will keep perfectly peaceful the one whose mind remains focused on you because he remains in you.
IT IS YOU, GOD WANTS TO TALK TO.
Is your life a walk with God or a walk with a strategic plan? Is it an adventure of faith or a blueprint you put together? I've learned that God does not give us all the details BUT He...
Have you ever thought about what it means, really means, to be made in God's image as it says in Genesis 1:26?
This is something I have spent much time meditating on over the years, especially when I was still in clinical practice. I would have patients coming to me with lots of baggage, which included all kinds of evaluations and assessments of all their learning problems and emotional issues. Although I have a healthy respect for the diagnostic tools they had gone through and that I had been trained to administer, I felt we had to dig below the surface of the issues to separate out the real person from the person they had become...
