What you see on the outside is only the beginning!

“Slow down take time breath in He says he’ll REVEAL WHATS TO COME. The thoughts in his mind always higher than mine and he’ll reveal what’s to come. So take courage my hope stay steadfast, He’s in the waiting, he’s in the waiting.” (Song take courage) by: Kristene DiMarco

That song completely ministers to be in my time with God and reminds me that what you see on the outside is only the beginning!

All of my conquests begins “in my secret garden” or as she refers “the waiting”!

the “Slow” is so important in your time with God! So many times we want to speed up so many things in our Lives actually almost everything we want to go into Hyper-speed. Yet what God has for us is in the “Slow” moments that we slow it down. The thing is we can’t get a day a back we can’t get a minute back its the way the time works so when we are in our “Slow” moment we are creating intentional time.  So many times people are wanting to make time or feel like there isn’t enough time in the day yet when we SLOW it all down.  We begin to see things in a different way. We see Jesus in a different way we actually get to know who he is. It’s in that moment in my Secret Garden we slow it all down and we see Jesus we walk with Him and he takes us and we see Him! When we slow down  we can see the Promise, but my point were not in our secret Garden for the promise that’s the extra stuff we get after being there delighting in all he is.

 

Psalm 100 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Praise God 

100 A poetic song for thanksgiving
Lift up a great shout of joy to the Lord!
    Go ahead and do it—everyone, everywhere!
As you serve him, be glad and worship him.
    Sing your way into his presence with joy!
And realize what this really means—
    we have the privilege of worshiping the Lord our God.
    For he is our Creator and we belong to him.
    We are the people of his pleasure.[a]

 

Now because I shared that verse above that’s the GOAL, Delight in the Lord our God, and in that place we will grow deep roots and the outer won’t be the main thing people will begin to see your Life  hidden In Christ! That is the GOAL  that’s what we begin to Look like in this time when we take time to SLOW DOWN! LET THIS HAPPEN! I hear Jesus saying to me “Hey Just say when” and he’ll do it! He’ll do it for you every way. So today lets not stop loving Jesus just when we see the flowers sprout in our Garden but let’s make it our Goal to be so hidden in Jesus  that everyone see’s Him in us. It’s like where did she go. Oh she’s hidden in Christ! 

 

2 Corinthians 5:6-8 (TPT) That’s why we’re always full of courage. Even while we’re at home in the body, we’re homesick to be with the Master— for we live by faith, not by what we see with our eyes. We live with a joyful confidence, yet at the same time we take delight in the thought of leaving our bodies behind to be at home with the Lord. 

 

Like I said the Goal is

  1. SLOW IT DOWN 
  2. FOR THE OUTSIDE TO ONLY BE THE BEGINNING 
  3. HIDDEN IN CHRIST!!!!
