Poetry- Light and Shadow




A door that no man can shut
A life that only Christ could redeem
We live under the shadow of the Almighty walking through the unseen.
-DtC

Prayer for Realigned Focus



© 1999 Debbie Turner Chavers



At times
strength arrives 
in drops of liquid peace as I worship.
Arms extended, heart submitted upward
I reach to be cradled
by the strong arms of peace that sustain me.
By God’s love that restores and renews me.

Praying the Word of God will settle the waves assaulting your peace. 
The Word of God will reveal the false narrative that floats you into storm filled seas.
Be still and know. 
Prayer can refocus us when we have been blown off course by the cares of this world and the spiritual intensity of daily life.
Spend time with God. He welcomes you and delights that you are seeking Him.

Prayer and worship can strengthen you in your journey here on this Earth. 
Take time to be still and know that God is God
The surrender of self to realignment will strip you of false layers, preparing you to rest in the warmth of the LORD’s peace and care.

A moment of prayerful focus can realign your day or night. Why not take a moment as you are reading or listening to this to agree in prayer with me for restoration and the hope filled peace given by God.

🙏  
Father God, thank you that nothing presents an impossibility to you. 
You, Father are well able to accomplish every good work within me. 
May your beauty of redemption be seen in me and my situation.
In Jesus name. Amen

Flame of Recognition in Light of Eternity


For the Joy Set Before Him
 © 2019 Debbie Turner Chavers
Water-Man Series
Hebrews 12:2


Today decide.  
Who will YOU serve?  
Yourself or the LORD?
We are to have singleness of heart toward our Redeemer.
All we have and all we are is due to God.
He sent His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ to pay in full for our redemption.
Do not fear the emptying of self. 
For God will fill you to over flowing with His Holy Spirit if you will receive Him.
There is a fear in those gathered in mankind of a usurpation. 
Rightfully so, because someone HAS taken our place.
Jesus Christ has taken our place and borne our transgressions away.

Men of flesh and bone fear failure and possess a strong need for recognition.
This desire for recognition can strip a person of giving back to God the enablement that He gave to us.
We cling to our gifts with soulful remorse, acknowledging only minutely the value received.
We strive to hang on to our gifting, instead of letting go.  
Our heart of pride recognizes the gift within, but quickly shuts the box and ties the bow as though we have not seen His glory.
What are we thinking? 
What are we doing?
We carefully guard our perceived value, intending to be paid well...for that which we have been freely given. The gifts we have received were Paid in Full by our Redeemer.

We are His children.  A witness for God in a lost, deceived and dying world.
No man knows the day or the hour of Christ's return. 
Be found faithful, be diligent.  
He gave all for you and I.  
Can we give less? 
Consider John 10:10 which says "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."

A house divided can not stand. 
We are the tabernacle of God.  
The Lord calls us to wholeness in Him. 
Work and give, while it is yet day.  

John 9:4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

Matthew 21:28-45


Church, Bride of Christ Jesus, Be about your Father's business.
~Debbie


Matthew 10:8  Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
Revelation 21:6  And he said unto me, It is done.  I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end.
I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.

Are You Thirsty?

Isaiah 45:13  I have raised him up in righteousness, and I will direct all his ways: he shall build my city, and he shall let go my captives, not for price nor reward, saith the LORD of hosts.

Hebrews 9:11-14  But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;
Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.
For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh:
How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot  to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

Acts 15:16-17  After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up:
That the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, saith the Lord, who doeth all these things.
