Psalm 51:16-17 –
“For You do not delight in sacrifice,
otherwise I would give it;
You are not pleased with burnt offering.
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit;
A broken and a contrite heart, O God, You will not despise.”

Isaiah 57:15 –
“For this is what the high and exalted One says – –
he who lives forever, whose name is holy:
“I live in a high and holy place,
but also with the one who is contrite and lowly in spirit,
to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite.”
The Season of Judgement is upon us, with many heartaches, tears and grief ahead.
There will be the stripping away of many things that we once thought were important to us, or people we love dearly taken away in death or to prison, or sent away to places we don’t know.
It is in this valley of the shadow of death, that we will KNOW our Savior in ways we can’t imagine yet, as we cling to Him in tears and sorrow over what is unfolding. . . . AND HE LOVES US THROUGH IT ALL AND WILL BE WITH US THROUGH IT ALL. . . AND HE CRIES WITH US THROUGH IT ALL.
Some have gone through and are going through very difficult times right now, where your tears fall to your pillow at night and you wonder: “does anybody really care about me?”
As you see your life being turned upside down and inside out. You decided you were going to go full force, straight ahead. . . 100% serving Jesus . . . And then that is when it seemed things got worse.
My friend, you have been taken into the Valley of the Shadow of death, where the refiner’s Fire is removing all to bring you into a deeper, more dependant and intimate walk with Jesus.
It hurts!!! It’s LONELY!!! It’s painful to your core and you don’t want to be here. . .but I’m here to tell you. . . GOD IS WITH YOU. . . HE LOVES YOU and YOU ARE HIS BELOVED.
I know this, because I walk in this valley of tears . . . And this is where you find a richer, more intimate and passionate relationship with Jesus. This is where your healing and hope occurs. This is where the “refiner’s Fire” is intense and sometimes you don’t think you can make it . . .BUT . . . You do with the LOVE and the help of the LORD Jesus.
Here’s a song for you and for those who will be brought into this valley, where we each must go to be refined and prepared for our beloved bridegroom, Jesus . . . Yahshua:
We must cast aside our needs, wants and desires . . . Taking ALL to Jesus and giving Him every heart ache, despair, disappointment, hurt and pain.
Don’t block those memories, that cause you pain, ask Jesus to go into them with you and heal those broken places and show you the truth, that you can be set free.
He will break off those chains and heal that wounded heart of yours that you have been hiding in the shadows, with a smile during the day and tears silently falling on your pillow at night.
WILL YOU LET HIM IN? WILL YOU ANSWER HIS CALL TO FULL SPIRITUAL INTIMACY WITH YOU?
THIS IS THE WORD OF THE LORD FOR ALL:
“GIVE ME YOUR LIFE, YOUR BREATH, YOUR SOUL, YOUR VERY BEING . . . I’M CALLING YOU INTO A RADICAL, PASSIONATE SOUL-WINNING LOVE RELATIONSHIP WITH ME. . . PICK UP YOUR CROSS AND DIE TO SELF, THAT YOU MAY BE FULLY ALIVE IN ME.”
And He was saying to them all,
“If anyone wishes to come after Me,
he must deny himself,
and take up his cross daily and follow Me.
For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it,
but whoever loses his life for My sake,
he is the one who will save it.
For what is a man profited if he gains the whole world,
and loses or forfeits himself?”
For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words,
the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when He comes in His glory,
and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.”
PLEASE LISTEN TO THIS SONG. . . It illustrates this message of JESUS calling YOU into a deeper place of intimacy with HIM:
With what shall I come to the Lord
And bow myself before the God on high?
Shall I come to Him with burnt offerings,
With yearling calves?
Does the Lord take delight in thousands of rams,
In ten thousand rivers of oil?
Shall I present my firstborn for my rebellious acts,
The fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?
He has told you, O man, what is good;
And what does the Lord require of you
But to do justice, to love kindness,
And to walk humbly with your God?
WHAT IS MY NEW “ROLE”, YOU MAY WONDER?
It’s this: BRIDESMAID . . . To help the Bride of Christ Get Ready for HIS return.
