The Journey is On; by Tess Martinez

From the Father:

The Journey

I want you to go and follow your dreams…just follow My voice. I will whisper to you and in the shadow of My wings you will fly high. I will make your gifts useful to many. The time has come when that gifting has to be put to use. It has been hidden for a long time, simply because, I wanted your readiness, a readiness anchored in My love, intertwined in My humble and forgiving heart.

Open your heart to the whisper of My overflowing love and the tenderness of My mercy. I will pour My spirit upon you so that all will come to be realized. Don’t look back at those days when all seemed so dark, so vague, and so obscure that you thought I had left you. No, My dear child, I have never left you. The truth is I am always there; ready to lift you up when you fall. Where do you think your ability to cope in situations most difficult comes from? I have always been there and will be for you.

I alone know My plans for you, plans to bring about the future you hope for (Jeremiah 29:11). Remember that wintry night in Tokyo when in the lonely little room you came across that message. Ah you cling to that promise. You are hopeful because you believe that My words will never come back void. Do you think I do not see your heart? I smile whenever you say it in your prayers. Wasn’t My name your weapon against attacks of despair and hopelessness? That was the way I have equipped you ever since you, My love began to confess those words. I am faithful and I see your heart. So tender is your love for me. My child, I welcome you.

To the Father:

In the Palm of Your Hands

Such affirmations. I cling to your promise with the innocence of a little child. Just hold my hand and lead me. I am willing to abide. Empower my heart to pour out the tenderness of your overflowing mercy, to give hope to the hopeless, to give vision to the desperate and to give strength and encouragement to the weak.

Cover my little hands with Yours and I will be so secure. My hands will move among the keys to give life to Your whispers. Your anointing will make the messages as lucid as the bright morning sun. Not my will but Yours.

There is no turning back. I have a covenant with You now. Use me and the gifts You so endowed me with. The ability that is so innate and the power so intense, our love makes the desire to be forever burning. Keep me in tune to the longings of my soul, the same longings that remain unsaid among many. Enable me to lead others to You. Make the gentle and quiet spirit of my being point others towards You. I am willing to abide.

A Glimpse of Yesterday

The dark shadows of yesterday have no place in my heart. I leave them at the foot of Your cross for Your forgiveness and mercy. I dwell not on the past but look forward to the future where I can do more. I ask forgiveness for yesterday’s neglect. For what I did and did not do. It is your forgiving heart as you promised in Psalm 51 that blots out all. I am now a new being.

My Covenant

The working together in heavenly contact gives me the ability and enables me to fulfill my covenant. My readiness to heed to Your whispers anytime is my desire. The power of Your words will reverberate in many corners of the world. The pen is mighty and the words powerful. Again, I will abide.

    Yes Lord, we so desire for You to move over the keys of our hearts. May our life make sweet music in response to Your touch. I choose to follow my dreams, the dreams You have placed in my heart. I will not look to the past for it is dead and gone. I set my face toward You. You are my refuge, my strength and my strong tower.

    Come quickly and breathe on my dreams Your breath of life.

    Blessings in Christ

  2. I am moved by the sensitivity and hunger I sense in your words. They are words of a child trusting and holding on to your Father. It reads like a gentle love song and it blessed me. Oh His Love is So Amazing.
