Snapshot

I never thought God would pull me into a Devine intimacy with Him, but he has. My father desires my presence more than anyone or any false reality in this world. I have come to find a desire to be with him, something I never would have done a year ago! A year ago I was a man who proclaimed to have a relationship with God, but inside I was dead. Struggling to find a foothold in a world that wanted to beat me down and leave me for dead. A year ago I was battling depression and an addiction to pornagraphy. I look at how far I have come and truly I see how God has freed me! I found in God what I was longing for, not ever finding love on a screen. Over this past year I have found myself trusting the Father to do the unthinkable in my life. Restoration took place. I was a facade of a building falling apart on the inside, I am still under construction, and always will be as God continues to rebuild me, but I will be a glorious temple.

Family I wanted to share this because I believe it will be an encouragement to you. I want each and everyone of you to know that I love you. I am here for you. I want to walk with you every step of the way no matter where you are in your journey to the Father. I will be here cheering you on every day. I pray for you because the enemy has put a target on you. You are a threat to Him. You are all over comers. Family be blessed to day. Love you all

And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. (Matthew 10:38 NKJV)

Yesterday I had the opportunity to carry a cross through Strasburg Pa , for about 2 miles. I was worn out before hand from a long day at work and just tired from lack of sleep. But was quickly reminded of a few things.

One was Christ carried a much bigger cross after having His flesh shredded like cheese.

Yet another thought was Jesus had been awake for hours. Under a that much torment and pressure.
I truly believe Jesus had been so very tired and had felt that His Father had abandoned Him even before He hung on the cross.

Imagine the very heart of the Father though as his son, not guilty of anything carried the weight of the world on his shoulders. Imagine the The father weeping as He turn away from His son as He was being beaten to an unrecognizable form. God truly love us and Jesus’ heart lined up to the Fathers.
We are free because one man died for all the people as the high priest said.

Gods emense love for us was put on a cross. The perfect display of love as Jesus said. “No greater love does one show for those he love than to lay down his life for the good of another.”

Challenge for today
Be thanking God today for all the troubles today!
Love y’all

Just thoughts

Rejoice for his mercy is made new. Every thing is made anew. He calls his sons worthy and his daughters treasures. Like just king He rules but His mercy is great. We are His handy work. Like a potter He molds us. Like a lover He is intimate by breathing life into us. Like a lion His WORD is heard like a mighty roar. He whispers and mountains move. He does this and we are unaware of all He does. We fell in sin to walk in shame He had another plan. Redemption. JESUS! The very son who was perfect given as a lamb for the slaughter. Buy His Blood we are restored as sons and daughters of God. His love, made known to us through Christ Jesus, breaks down the walls of our hearts and gives peace in times of trouble, restores the brokenness to pieces of art. Freedom is found. Chains fall off and are broken never to be used again. Praise him for he does great things for you.

Say Something // A Great Big World
Cover by WorshipMob, and God’s response.

I Am the gentle whisper inside you, can you hear Me? Can you hear Me? Can you hear My constant love beating inside you, as close as the heart beating in your chest? I’m here. Settle your heart. Rest in My love. And hear Me calling to you. I’m calling your name. 

Just beautiful

Praising through strife

Oh happy day

Good morning family!

You are doing it right!
No matter where you are in your journey with God, you are fighting the good fight of faith. Even in the struggles you are winning.

Pause.
Thank God for your struggles

Play

It seems weird to thank God for our struggles but, He is doing more in the nitty gritty times than in the good easy going times.
So praise The Lord every chance we get. He owes us nothing but gives us everything.

Challenge for today.
Praise God when ever you remember to do so from this day forth

Love you all blessings and peace
Jake

Yo yo yo family. I have been praying for y’all and I believe you are all about to walk into a time of great oneness with the father. Let’s crucify our flesh and walk one with Jesus. God who was first intimate with you, when He breathed his spirit into your lungs want us to be intimate with him. I was listening to a song the other day and a lyric hit me hard. It went like this “be who I made you to be to desire me”. Like wow we were made to desire God. So family let me leave you with this, “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill can’t be hidden. (Matthew 5:14 NIRV)

Love you all

Jake

Thought for today.
You were called for this. Who will you influence today. the people around you are hungry and in need of some serious TLC not just from us but the Father who looks past the brokenness and straight to the heart. The Father who made us a perfect piece of art and set us on display. When we fell and broke He lovingly picked up our broken pieces and skillfully glued us back together. Our job is not save anyone but to love them like the Father and through our love give them the father.

The challenge for today
Love one person today unconditionally like the father.

Love you all
Jake

Perfect Love Casts out ALL Fear

1 John 4:18 is our focus for this thought.

There is no Fear in Love, But Perfect love Drives out fear. Because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in Love. 1 John 4:18(NIV)

This single verse struck me in a way i had never seen before. I have been working through this in prayer and God has shown up Big time. re-read that verse. pause and pray.

lets look at that first line. There is NO fear in Love. I think about how the culture brings you a love story and throws an element of fear right in the middle. so twisted. In our case Our love story began on the Cross. yet we hold on to fear and worry. there are two types of fear Human fear and a righteous fear. Righteous fear is fear of the Lord. Human fear is the curse we all have. In our relationship with Christ we should have no man-made fear only righteous fear. Yet we are afraid of our sin creeping up and worries about our lives. I want to look at one thing for a moment Ephesians 6: 10-20 I want hit on one thing for a moment.

The helmet of Salvation. our mind controls our thoughts and movements. I love how Paul uses a helmet. our head is covered and secure in a helmet. Now as to Salvation we must be secure in our Salvation. Therefore fear has no place in our lives, in our Salvation, or in our relationship with Christ.

Christ is Love therefore LOVE drives out All fear. All fear not just this or that but ALL fear is Driven out by Christ. Fear was mans punishment before Christ. Fear is what separated man from God. Man was afraid to call God our Father. I know in my life I have areas i am working through with God that Before were off limits to Him due to fear. I am done Not being made perfect because of fear. This is why I want to empower everyone to live for Christ with Freedom and without Fear. kinda gives the statement No Fear a new Meaning. The New motto is No Fear Made Perfect in Love. Blessings Love you Jake Dickinson

I AM

Exodus 3:14 God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I AM has sent me to you.”

This phrase just keeps running through my mind. I can’t shake it. God has just say two words for his name. “I AM” Moses must have said what are you. But I feel God Identified him self so that we can be identified with with him. Everything God is we were created to be. Sin killed it. Christ revived it so be Identified by “I AM”. Write It out and start with I AM.

I am worthy

I am free

I am an heir 

I am blameless 

I am forgiven

I am worth it

I am called 

I am saved by Grace though Faith

I am in love with THE LOVE

I am a purpose filled life.

I am made for this

 

 

love Y’ALL
