The 2nd Side April 7, 2014

Filed under: Prayers — therosebudhome @ 3:47 am

He called the multitude to himself with his disciples, and said to them, “Whoever wants to come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it; and whoever will lose his life for my sake and the sake of the Good News will save it. For what does it profit a man, to gain the whole world, and forfeit his life? For what will a man give in exchange for his life? For whoever will be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man also will be ashamed of him, when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.” (Mark 8:34-38 WEB)

 

The “other” side i would want to see as an option …. Yeshua cleary informs us that to chose life for yourself may gain you the whole world, but you will forfeit your own soul.  So yes i cry out to my Heavenly Father for help, but as His child and trusting Him for my entire being – not so that i can go on my merry way and build my castle, shine my beauty, & parade in my popuarity, that will not only defeat the purpose for my existence but will cost me my soul for eternity.  Not a bargain at all for me.

 

Y’hovah my Creator, my Father … Thank You so much for Your love, Your mercy, Your grace, Your sacrifice – WOW – Your sacrifice for me leaves me without words enough to explain the depth of my gratitude.  Keep cleansing me and molding me and refining me into Your likeness for Your pleasure, with all that You bless me, may i bless those around me, and bring them to Your Light and Love.

“let my prayer be counted as incense before You, and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice!”  amen. Ps 141:2

Y’hovah, I cry unto thee: make haste unto me; give ear unto my voice, when I cry unto thee.

It sounds very me centered at first.  At first glance, it looks as though my cry is all that matters.

There is always 2 sides to every coin, and 2 perspectives to every statement.  That’s because there is a warfare going on, for the souls of man, one is trying with every effort to keep man in the dark; but the Light of Yeshua, the Radiance of Y’hovah knows no darkness at all.  So when i initially considered the “me-ness” of this plea i had to stop and consider carefully what i was asking.

1) help, courage, affirmation, security, and peace in knowing His presence, no matter what.  Ultimately, all eyes lifted upon Him, to His name, His glory.   This is what i’m asking, there’s no room for a 2nd side to me, He is everything!

Bringing everything back to Y’hovah, is the answer.  When i pray this, i can only do it with depth and sincerity of heart because my entire life is His and layed out for His course. I am more that willing for Him to have His name known and glorified through me, through my trials, struggles, joys, battles, everything.  The very first thing He will love to do is hear my confession and cleanse me showing me the direction to be going and waiting upon my obedience – very key – my obedience.   … and really, isn’t that exactly what the life of Yeshua was all about?

So the battle continues, the fight of the flesh, it’s the law of sin living in me.  It isn’t me, it is it’s own identity within my members waging war with the law of the Spirit, Ruach HaKodesh, the Holy Spirit of Y’hovah.  My body is His temple for a witness on earth, and my obedience, surrender, & submission are the testimony of His love, grace, mercy, faithfulness, holiness, His very existence, and He will defend His faithful one as a testimony in heaven and on earth – everything He rescues me from and/or walks me through in life or death has purpose in heaven and on earth for His awesome glory!  So ….. make haste unto me, Abba, Father, Y’hovah my Elohim, cleanse me, fill me, defend me, i am striving to do Your will.

amen.

I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one.  They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.  Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.  As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world.  And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified by the truth. …. And I have declared to them Your name, and will declare it, that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.   ~Yeshua prays to the Father~

the Father, Y’hovah, answered, is answering, and will answer!  ❤

 

 

 

Psalm 141 February 10, 2012

Filed under: Prayers — therosebudhome @ 5:17 am

A Psalm of David.

1 Lord, I cry unto thee: make haste unto me; give ear unto my voice, when I cry unto thee.2 Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense; and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.3 Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth; keep the door of my lip.4 Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to practise wicked works with men that work iniquity: and let me not eat of their dainties.

5 Let the righteous smite me; it shall be a kindness: and let him reprove me; it shall be an excellent oil, which shall not break my head: for yet my prayer also shall be in their calamities.6 When their judges are overthrown in stony places, they shall hear my words; for they are sweet.7 Our bones are scattered at the grave’s mouth, as when one cutteth and cleaveth wood upon the earth.8 But mine eyes are unto thee, O God the Lord: in thee is my trust; leave not my soul destitute.9 Keep me from the snares which they have laid for me, and the gins of the workers of iniquity.10 Let the wicked fall into their own nets, whilst that I withal escape.

Oh Yehovah, my Father, my Teacher and Authority; This is my prayer. Amen. May these writings always be what You desire to be shared. and no more, no less; a praise and honor to You. Amen.
