*****When Our Mind is Clear******

when the mind is clear,
the heart is pure,
which allows us to open
our eternal door.

our eternal beings,
now seen and heard,
have enabled our spirit,
to receive God's word.

For we're all the same,
imperfect at best,
the difference lies,
where we choose to find rest.

In the arms of the Father,
or the surroundings of earth,
this was decided,
before each of our births.

For our Heavenly Father,
knew from the start,
those of His children,
who contained loving hearts.

So they'll be no surprise,
as to who will seek grace,
as our homes have been built,
In God's heavenly place.

Will it be big like a mansion?
or perhaps a bit small,
that's solely our choice,
God allowed us that call.

He gave us free will,
we each have a choice,
do we sit back and wait,
or lend others our voice.

to search for the lost,
feeding God's flame,
or turn a blind eye,
and be one who lays blame.

For Jesus our King,
was happy to serve,
perfect, He suffered,
what He didn't deserve.

The ultimate sacrifice,
our Father endured
in order to show us,
eternal life is secured......

In the Bible our Father tells us that He knows all things. In Genesis 25:22-24  22 But the children struggled together within her; and she said, "If all is well, why am I like this?" So she went to inquire of the Lord. 23 And the Lord said to her: "Two nations are in your womb, Two peoples shall be separated from your body; One people shall be stronger than the other, And the older shall serve the younger." 24 So when her days were fulfilled for her to give birth, indeed there were twins in her womb. Even before Esau and Jacob were born the Lord knew the path their life would take.Sometimes we can't understand in our human mind why we go through certain things or what we're suppose to do.

That is why it is so important we clear our minds so we can listen to the purity of our heart which is the Holy Spirit placed there to reveal what the Father needs us to know, and can lead us where He needs us to be. We have only one reason for being here and that is to fulfill Gods plan, purpose, and will for our life so that we may be a light for Him. A light for those who have been steered off their path by the tricks of the attacker through pain, horror, and lies.

As humans we sometimes forget to use the armor our Lord provides us with, in His word all the answers, direction, and support we need are at our fingertips . He reminds us of Jacob's path chosen by God in Genesis again in the book of  Isaiah 59:17-21  17 For He put on righteousness as a breastplate, And a helmet of salvation on His head; He put on the garments of vengeance for clothing, And was clad with zeal as a cloak. 18 According to their deeds, accordingly He will repay, Fury to His adversaries, Recompense to His enemies; The coast lands He will fully repay. 19 So shall they fear The name of the Lord from the west, And His glory from the rising of the sun; When the enemy comes in like a flood, The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him. 20 "The Redeemer will come to Zion, And to those who turn from transgression in Jacob," Says the Lord. 21 "As for Me," says the Lord, "this is My covenant with them: My Spirit who is upon you, and My words which I have put in your mouth, shall not depart from your mouth, nor from the mouth of your descendants, nor from the mouth of your descendants' descendants," says the Lord, "from this time and forevermore." 

Here we clearly see God the Father protecting His children and warning their enemies. Through all things we must lean on Him and truly know in our hearts that He will never leave us nor forsake us no matter what the circumstance may look like. I pray this week that we remember to put on our armor and lay down the things the attacker tries to use against us, and let our loving Father handle it for us. May we all have a week filled with love light and wisdom and I hope my above poem fills you with inspiration and encouragement...Love hugs and prayers Patricia xx
