What Is Your… Issue Of Blood?

Transcript of Broadcast January 22, 2020

Good Morning and God Bless each of you today and always.  Thank you for joining me today on this ROF broadcast.  It is my heartfelt prayer the Lord Jesus join us as well so His name is lifted up high among us, as we fellowship together. 

With each passing day we are seeing even more how faithful our Father is to see us through everything which comes our way.  As we surrender to His perfect will and process in our lives, we are no longer tipping to and fro in the storms which come our way.  We also are getting glimpses of what it means to walk on the troubled waters of this life and not sink into them so that they overtake us.  This is a truly indescribable moment of abiding in Jesus.

I titled today’s broadcast – What is your issue of blood?  Because we all have at least one thing that we’ve prayed for, hoped for and believed for and yet are not quite fully delivered from…  It remains with us to this day.  So we are going to talk more about this purposed issue of blood because the children of light are on the brink of a huge prophetic breakthrough.  We also are going to go over some other pearls that blessed me in such a mighty way and I know they will bless you, as well.

As the Father’s love presses so intently into our hearts, He sears our hearts with His majesty to the point we desire Jesus over sin, freewill, anyone else or anything else that tries to rule and reign on the throne of our hearts.  That secret place is reserved for One – being Jesus. 

You all remember the Bible account of the woman with the issue of blood?  I pray the Lord lead me to lay out this beautiful message of this story so that it becomes one with us and applicable to our own lives.  Help me Lord to show the listeners what You showed me so their hearts are comforted by Your truth.

We have shared so much recently about being “made whole” and how it is only Jesus who does a complete work, inside and out.  We are constantly seeking Jesus it seems and we need to hear Him today, this day to be made whole.  No person can make us whole, no person can stop the ache of a bleeding heart – it is simply the virtue of Jesus imparted to us that satisfies the wounds of the past, as many of us cling to that which is good… the hem of His garment.

Let’s read the scripture –

Luke 8:43-48

43 And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any,

44 Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched.

Notice it was her touching Him that stopped the blood – one would think it would be the other way around wouldn’t you?

45 And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?

Jesus was surrounded that day be a multitude of people – it even confused the disciples why Jesus would think only one touched Him.

46 And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me.

Here is the miracle – she in faith, touched Jesus and His virtue left Him and went into her.  Virtue – STRENGTH, POWER, ABILITY

47 And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately.

Healed immediately – Him coming into us, heals our bleeding hearts – the wounds caused by the thorns inflicted by others sent to press us into surrendering to Jesus so that we seek Him in truth for strength and ability to overcome all things.

She immediately began to testify “why” she had touched him…  I always assumed it was due to a menstruation issue and until recently when the Lord showed me – it did not say that in His word, I was then open to be instructed by Him in such a precious way.

48 And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace.

She sought peace… And peace was bestowed upon her that day – what an encouraging deliverance.  This same deliverance is available to us – but…  I have a question for us – Will we be made whole?  Will we actually come to Jesus or remain in our sorrows with an issue of blood, bleeding on everyone we come in contact with?

  • How many need a heartbreak healing today?  You see…. The Lord began to show me how applicable this Bible story is in our own lives – male and female.
  • This story has to do with the “thorn in the flesh” in so many ways – meaning, the Lord will remove our heart of stone and give us a heart of flesh.  We know Paul had this thorn to keep him humble and prayed three times for it to be removed, only to later walk out the passage, “My grace is sufficient for you” or rather – I am with you always and in Me you can overcome every single obstacle in your path – as long as you walk surrendered to me – I in you and you in me, is what Jesus was speaking of.
  • As Jesus breaks our hearts for what breaks His – that is the “issue” of blood to stir up love and compassion – HIS VIRTUES – within us.  So why do we fight it so hard?
  • Jesus alone will and is addressing the curse of the issue of blood we too have today.

Just in case some of you are still not on board with us…  Let’s define ISSUE OF BLOOD in Greek:

Issue means – flowing

Blood means – violence, slay, murder

What flowed out of her was violence and murder.

Okay now – Now we are getting somewhere…  The particular passage speaks to a broken bitter heart full and flowing out violence to slay and murder others.  We know out of the mouth the heart speaks, right?  We also were told when she touched Jesus HIS VIRTUE went into her and healed her – therefore, she no longer flowed violence out- but Jesus and from that day forward she walked in peace.  Before she was stirring up strife and likely due to the heartbreak she suffered 12 years prior.  I hope this sets foundation for you all, it certainly was an eye opening moment for me…  A real heart check.

Will we be made whole?  Or will we cling to the pains of the past?  Will we be salt – stirring within others a thirst for Jesus or we will remain offering nothing but bitter waters?  I don’t know about you all, but I want to be set free.  Amen.

The Lord then began to show me more:

  • Holiness in the Bible actually means “to cut” so I thought even more about the circumcision of the heart – it bleeds right?  And just how purposed it is we have a heart that is even capable of bleeding, many are stone cold – not moved, no compassion, lifeless…  The Lord can work with a bleeding heart, but with a cold heart – there is no hope for them until it is broken and shattered – until circumcised you give instruction, but lack the love and compassion where real change is fortified.  Knowing Jesus stirs up others to know Him too, we no longer are seeking knowledge in mixture with the tree which speaks of evil as well as good.  When a heart is fixated on Him – it clings to that which is only good.  But that’s a whole other story He gave me the other day.
  • I know I am falling extremely short articulating this mighty work of His and all that He was showing me the past few days – I do pray you take this to Him, that you seek Him and ask Him to show you too and most importantly that you be made whole and walk in peace carrying and displaying His virtues to others – which is the end goal of this particular process we are all in.
  • Since we know now that Holiness means to cut – we can understand on a much deeper level why – It pleased the Father to crush the Son.  He has given us many precepts leading us up to this day…  Jesus is our example, being the first of many brethren, His brethren too shall be crushed just as He was, but it is very very purposeful.

Here is the Scripture the Lord gave me:

2 Corinthians 2

15 For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish:

16 To the one we are the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life. 

This Scripture explains why so many are at enmity with us quite often…  If our hearts are crushed and theirs aren’t…  Ego is still activated in their lives and it shows.  Many have drank from many waters, in that many waters flow out of their mouths.  For those who drink solely from everlasting waters, it is that water which flows out.

When the Lord has our hearts in totality – he has our bodies too, our tongues, our minds, our eyes, hands and feet.  Transformation starts inwardly – Jesus wants our hearts, not a part of it, but all of it and He goes right for it as soon as we answer the door to the heart He is knocking on and invite Him in.

Intentions are nice, knowledge is okay too but it is our ACTIONS which display just who has our heart – If it is Jesus, then He will be observable in what we do and if it is not Him then we are like a mixture a tree walking around with knowledge of good and evil so that is what comes out of us – a mixture. 

You see our intentions are important, but even more than that is our follow through on all that which we say. 

Psalm24:4 tells us to become:

The one whose deeds are blameless and whose motives are pure, who does not lie, or make promises with no intention of keeping them.

Lord help me deliver this in Your perfect way…. We will give account for every idle word – those things we said and did not do – those things which were not fruitful or rather performed.  If we do not take heed to this warning, we will continue to be that cloud without water – it is without water because it did not manifest what it was created to do.  Ugh… Do you all understand what I am conveying here?  Our yes must mean yes and our no, no.  That means if we say “yes or no” to someone – we follow through on that yes or no, with the highest of integrity in a most holy way.  I don’t know about you all, but I do not want to be that cloud without water who does not represent King Jesus in the most Kingdomly way.

Many people look to us and it is true we are held to a higher standard and it is imperative we keep our word, this is extremely serious due to the extreme nature in which the Father will take in action towards those who mistreat the least of these in such a way.

It is our actions which reflect if we love Him and others.  Talk is cheap, so they say.

We are given this very unworthy position of instructing others, the Word tells us how to accomplish anything when we apply the Word in our own lives.  If we do not walk this out ourselves and only speak of such things, we are a hypocrite in danger of going where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth.

I am so very thankful the Lord is purging us of all ego and pride, our very eternal lives are in need of His touch in such a powerful way.

Genesis 6:5 explains it this way…

The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination and intention of all human thinking was only evil continually.

I know none of us want to be counted among the wickedness of the Earth, therefore, we are so very grateful for this time and space to repent from all our selfish, sinful ways and pre-conceived notions which do not originate in the virtues of Jesus.  Remember, it is not the one who says Lord Lord that shall enter into Heaven, but those WHO DO the will of the Father.  It was lucifer who tempted Jesus to only proclaim a thing and have dominion – but it was the Father’s requirement He walk out in full demonstration all He had spoken.  Faith, hope, love, etc… without works (being performed) are all dead.  Amen.  He also requires the same from us.

It has gotten most wearisome to endure all the opposition by the tough guys towards those with bleeding hearts.  If we too shared in the virtues of Jesus we would begin to embrace those who’s hearts are weeping just as His did.  It is called… compassion.  This type of weakness and humility is an asset, not a sin – Jesus binds up the wounds of the brokenhearted, He embraced them then and He does so still today.  Remember the suffering and how we learned it equates to abiding?  And how we are examples to the lost when we follow Him as our example?  Just like Jesus we have charges against us for that issue of blood, for loving the unlovable who have the same issue as us.  These same charges were leveled against Jesus in His day… So He put all that to rest in saying, it is not the well who need a Physician but the sick.  From this respect we can lay down all shame man has placed upon us for wounds inflicted and the sorrow which we must endure for the night.  Jesus and His joy does come as a healing promise in the morning.  When people do this – they are looking at the outside of the cup as a sign to our wholeness, while Jesus is doing heart surgery within, not observable by the natural eye.

Every single time Jesus healed someone He told them… Go and sin no more.  Jesus did not come to call the righteous, but sinners – just like me and you – to repentance.  If you have that issue of blood, if you seek Him to be made whole – He is there, it is why He came and suffered only to defeat all death in His victory.  When His virtue comes upon you, you shall rise up, be made whole knowing it was Him all along that you needed.  There is no shame in not being perfect, that is a mind game humans play on one another so that we do not recognize we need a perfect Savior, rather than them.  And as long as someone can focus on you – they do not have to deal with their own issues of blood.

Do you all know what the word PERFECT actually means?  It means MATURE… now someone should smile over that.  Perfect seemed overwhelming before, didn’t it?  But when we realize it simply means to grow into Spiritual maturity – well, we can all do that, right, as a matter of fact, we are doing that?  What we feed grows and if we feed ourselves daily on Jesus, His word as our daily bread – then we are on the perfect path.  Growing in Him is being Holy as our Father in Heaven is Holy.  Man gauges where you are by perfect works – the Lord measures us by a process of dying to self with a surrendered life.  When people do this to you, just say – after you are done talking about me, pray for me because I want to be perfect like you.  lolol

Something that really irritates me is when pride rises up and we condemn a baby in the Lord for doing just as they are supposed to do…. Desire the sincere milk of the Word because that is what babies do.  It is also why Jesus said, let the little children come to Me, this highmindedness goes way back in time.  I think many of us forget just what it was like to be in love with our first love, Jesus and seek Him with all our hearts.  Some of us need to repent from that haughty spirit flashing around these grandiose words of wisdom as if everyone better step to attention and listen to them… I saw it the other day in chat, I didn’t say anything, but one day the Lord is going to humble those who do this because we all are on an individual journey to mature and grow up in Christ Jesus to fullness.  There is ONE AUTHOR who is fingerprinting the finishing of each person’s faith – His Name is Jesus and He is capable.  But…. Do we actually practice what we preach in our feeble attempts to override the message of love for the sake of self lest we too become one of those who confess Jesus, having a form of godliness, denying the very power of Him.  Remember – God is love. Period, no need to add to or take away or dissect that statement. This statement will always bristle the flesh, in less of course it is mine I am trying to save.  The truth is… that drug addict, that one with a wounded heart, the drunk and the prostitute and those still suffering from an issue of blood – they need to know God is love and this is why… We are to desire the sincere milk of the word…. Meat is not sincere – embracing, warm, satisfying and comforting… Only milk is.  The wise will say… oh surely there is more, look at that poor little one, broken, bleeding and struggling in tears crying out to Jesus.  Guess which one He runs to?  I believe you already know the answer to that question….

When we seek to save our own lives, we tend to make ourselves unreplaceable in the lives of others – I see it working in many, I don’t say anything – but it is time to sweep our own back porches so to speak.  Do you all know the plank in our eye that needs to be removed is ego/self/pride?  Once removed, it is then we can see others clearly through the Holy Spirit and remove their speck – or rather assist them, not point figures, but love and walk with them as they grow in Christ.  Until it is removed we have a distorted view on others because we make it all about ourselves.  The Lord often can and will use a different means to accomplish the same purposed outcome in another’s life.  Most of the inward work cannot be seen by us in another until the Lord reveals it Himself.  There would be way less strife in the church if we took the process of one another in meekness and faith that the Lord is fully capable of perfecting/maturing His own sheep.

Who know’s…. Everything I’ve shared so far could be making no spiritual sense to anyone but me, but I am sharing it anyway, even if I look completely foolish in the process.  All I know is the Word says, the Father disciplines those He loves and after living a life of abandonment I need His love, I need to KNOW I AM LOVED BY HIM, then everything else will be okay.  And okay is good…  I don’t expect greatness or dreams fulfilled or fairy tales or anything of the sort anymore – content in Him if that is okay, then that is satisfying to the enduring soul who cries a lot and feels hopeless sometimes and yet, He has had found His favor upon just enough so I no longer carry that shame and the labels men try to attach to me – I am praying for this for you, as well.  Sometimes, just like Elijah who could see something his servant could not, we can see things operating that are out of godly order – what is important is what we do during those times – a heart which belongs to Jesus will always refer and run to Him, seeking only His leading, even if it means being looked upon with ridicule and shunned.  The least of these are those who follow the Shephard because they will never leave the hem of garment and Jesus insures they don’t most often by the crushing of their hearts.

This is a perfect segway into the rest of today’s broadcast…

Applying the pearls He gives us into our lives, so that we do remain that sweet smelling aroma:

Thorn in the flesh….

  • You see… We all have that issue of blood and it serves a great purpose to suffer for the sake of Jesus.  Remember, to suffer is to abide and endure with Jesus through a trial or heartbreak.  A bleeding heart in itself is not a problem, as long as we are releasing the virtues of Jesus when the flesh is pierced with a thorn.  What is the problem is when offense is the companion of this issue of blood.  Jesus told us it is impossible offenses not come, the reason being once offended the Lord will remove self out of us altogether.  Again – having a bleeding heart is not blocking our peace, offence is.  Offense is the issue.
  • Many will deny they are offended and even get offended if you mention the word offense in reference to them.  I have found that is when you are the most offended of all – speaking of my own self here.  Deny offense is a coping mechanism based in ego, saying I am too untouchable to be offended.  It is laughable really.

Let’s call “the thorn in the flesh – the root” of what shatters your heart the most.  That one thing that is just too painful to bear, to ponder, consider, witness or even entertain…  that is the thorn.  People usually do one of two things with the thorn – they cover it up in denial or talk about it incessantly.

Ugh… I know I must use me… I also know the Lord showed me this is many of you as well.  Not all, but quite a few.  I need His strength to get through this today because if we push this thorn deep enough inside us – we can sense the pain, but no longer have to look upon the cause of it – it is self-soothing to avoid transparency to some degree.

On a side note – I am going to have to at some point discuss my thorn more openly in a small setting with those who share in this type of suffering with me.  Just so we can be fully delivered and recognize ourselves in it, but we will do that another day – not on a Wednesday. 

My Issue of Blood is…  Abandonment.  There is even a specific disorder, which the Lord so beautifully revealed to me called – Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria.  I am most grateful for this journey He has us on – Jesus always reveals before He delivers so that only He gets the Glory.  During that special broadcast we will learn more about Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria, but not today.  And once healed we transfer from offense to actually truth this time…  Pouring Jesus out of us like a drink offering to others.  Dysphoria is really no big deal – it actually means – “to endure something.”

Some of us – especially me and I could name a few of you, as well, but I won’t… are HIGHLY SENSITIVE to BEING REJECTED. 

Therefore… “sand paper people” – those who are harsh, super insensitive, combative or non-compassionate are very abrasive to our souls.

As a matter of fact, no matter what your issue of blood is…  The Lord will send “sand paper people” into your life to purge you of self.  We can switch it around too – If you are a sand paper person – my highly sensitive nature gets under your skin like a thorn and you feel provoked no matter what I say.  You all get the picture?

We all have an “issue of blood…”  I cannot stress this enough.  What is amazing is when we recognize this to be so, we also recognize we are in desperate need of a Savior and that we really need Him in every way, body, soul, mind and spirit.  And thankfully, He is right there waiting for us to call upon Him in our time of need.

I think I am going to leave all that right there…  Unless of course you all have any questions or comments?  We will go into much more detail on this topic during the special broadcast, as well as seek the Lord to help us in being made whole and healed and sent forth to heal the sick hurting in such a way.

So I am going to try and have a special broadcast sometime between today and next week’s broadcast, because I am so very excited about us talking about THE BRIDE OF CHRIST found in Revelation planned for next week, unless the Lord guides us elsewhere.

It all started last week when I was walking and Jesus said to me…  “My people suffer jezebel’s tactics in their midst…”  I was like – whoa!  There is that word suffer again…  I had completely forgotten all about that word being in that particular Scripture.

You all wanna read it quick?

Revelation 2

19 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.

20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.

  • We will study this more later, but suffering here means TO ENDURE IT & HOLD UP
  • Jezebel – resembles a womb/church gathering – it is the HARLOT CHURCH committed to Baal worship
  • Those who idolizes, edify or TOLERATE these false practices and do not repent when Jesus comes – He will consume those with the brightness of His coming.

21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.

22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.

23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.

Interesting isn’t it how the Lord searches our hearts to see if our works/deeds are authentic in Him.

Revelation 2 & 3 speaks to Jesus knocking on the door of His church – not just our hearts, although He does that too, of course.

Just to review ~

We believe faith is the evidence of what Jesus said is observable – repentance is that evidence of a heart crying out to the Lord for deliverance, healing and wholeness so that we walk out a converted lifestyle as the new creature within us marries the outward, which is sanctification.  Perfect is being in the process of growing into maturity, as a child of God, so that no one can boast, because from this respect we are all on equaled, level holy ground.  Man looks at the outward, while the Lord looks at the heart to see if it is seeking Him.

As our driving passions grow above everything to KNOW JESUS more, we become conformed to Christ, our old creature is crucified with Him so that it is no longer you or I who live, but it is Jesus who abides and lives within us – which is the higher calling of God upon our lives.

It is true the same love the Father has for the Son, He has for us – that love poured out as a drink offering is poured into us so that we thirst no more for anything which is unrighteous.  To know Jesus is not knowledge based so that we become experts on what He did or what He professed regarding endtimes, prophecy, events to unfold, signs, miracles, wonders, etc…  But to intimately and fully surrender as a bride would to her husband, to take His name as your own and be one with Him.  This is honestly the only way to go where He goes, do what He does and say what He says.

A transference of eternal life occurs during the consummation of such relationship so that misplaced intentions of sign seeking and the like dissipates in that we no longer are that wicked generation who seeks signs – as we have now embraced the Sign – Jesus.

When Heaven kisses your soul in such a way… The only Sign your heart longs for is the appearing of Jesus inwardly, so that outwardly we do wear that crown of righteousness reserved for only a few.  We do so love His appearing in all things, in other’s lives as well as our own.  When Jesus appears and gets glory, no matter the circumstances we celebrate in worship, laying before Him as only He is worthy to be praised.

And just as there were 10 virgins asleep, which replicate the church, as the call went out half heard the heart awakening, the other were awakened in the mind.  The Bride who has a heart surrendered to the Groom – let Him into their hearts, welcoming His intimate embrace, which can never be taught by instruction.  The others are simply guests to observe and witness the interactions between His Beloved which He says are mine.

All those who seek Jesus shall be satisfied…  The wise and unwise virgin parable is not a salvation parable, but rather a Marriage parable.  The five wise indeed are the Bride – as they sought Him with their whole hearts and shall be satisfied by only Him.  The five unwise sought Him with their minds and they too shall be satisfied, but only in the mind.  One knows Him, the other knows about Him.  When works are your end goal, you will be completely satisfied in them as a well done and faithful servant.  But for those who are in love with Jesus, works are simply a means to an end, because our hearts will never be satisfied until we are one with Jesus in spirit, soul, mind and body – so that works follow after the procurement of relationship. 

Martha was not in the wrong, however, Mary chose the better part – she found the one who her soul loves – Jesus.  The same is true for us.  Both were thrilled to see Jesus that day and honored to have Him in their homes – only their reasons for being thrilled were completely different.  Therefore, not all who believe – although they are saved – will attain a marital relationship with Jesus and yet both groups shall be satisfied by Him.  Again in this parable we seek the Marriage Supper of the Lamb – Martha working attending the feast, Mary in bridal submission, even though there was work to be done.

We can have our identity in only one entity – works or Jesus.  Works feeds the ego and allows Jesus to assist, Jesus as our identity kills the ego and works assist.

As a Bridal Temple of the Lord we desire what He desires – relationship – with Him first, then one another.  As we watch and wait, lovingly desiring more and more of Him – knowledge, manifestations, words, signs, anointed speeches, attention from people – nothing satisfies us any longer….  Only Jesus.

At this point the fight is over…  You know, the wrestling of yourself and others – you surrender, no longer desiring to have your way, a hush comes over you because you carry a secret…  a treasure so near and dear in the secret place of the heart….  An unbreakable love bond between you and the one you were purposed to love, the Bridegroom, Jesus.  It is that desire for Him that gets you through each day in full hopes of breaking this veil of flesh for good and banded to Him in fullness one day.

So next time someone who is a guest in your life…. Looks down upon you, or scrutinizes what you are feeling or saying…  Remember just who matters most in your life, who you love more than breath itself…  Jesus and He is coming, He said He would and He surely will.  Though He tarries, He is right on time. Amen.

Just cling to what is good every day – Cling to Jesus and when we do, He will get us through the worst parts of this life because He is the best part of our lives, delivering us a hope and promise in Himself.  The Lord is not slack in His promises towards us, no not ever.

Lastly, a call to repentance has gone out.  May we stop taking our gift for granted and lording it over others as if they are falling short in someway because they are not gifted as we are.  For example, I write, it is what I do and I am most humbled and in awe how the Lord has bestowed such a precious gift of His heart to articulate beautifully with written words.  But, I cannot speak, nor do I desire to.  I know my limitations and they are great in the area of speech.  Therefore, I am not ashamed to admit everything I just shared with you – I wrote out first with endless hours in the secret place of the most High.  When I write, intimacy with Jesus is forged in unmeasurable portions.  I cherish the gift He has given me, but I will never set heavy burdens upon another for not writing, because that is not you.  You may be one who does have the gift of speech and I honor you for that gift as the Holy Spirit speaks through you – it blesses my heart in such an anointed way.  This is just one example of how our ego will easily slip in to the place where we expect others to conform to us, rather than Jesus.  Each one of you listening to me have a perfectly placed gift within you and many are waiting for you to share that portion of yourself with others – you have healing waters for those hearts who are bleeding waiting for your touch.  It is my prayer you embrace the beautiful masterpiece of you in such a way you may be sent out to a lost and hopeless land, spreading His virtues to hearts in severe straights with His love.

Heavenly and Masterful Father, I did as You called me to do, as I delivered this precious message to those who are wounded and at times hopeless.  I am quite humbled Lord by Your everlasting love as You comfort us in our time of need.  We repent Lord for times we tried to instill our wills or ways upon another or tried to override Your majestic precious work in the hearts we could not see or discern in truth.  Forgive us Lord for harshness or having a lack of compassion that does not reflect the heart of Your gentle Son, Jesus.  Lord, words cannot express the gratefulness in my heart for showing me there is beauty in all things, even a hopeless, bleeding heart like mine.  Thank You Lord for delivering us from the sting of painful wounds while keeping the authenticity of truth.  Thank You Lord for breaking all shame within us so that we may walk freely in just how You created to be.  As You send us forth as the salt and light, may people see Jesus, not us and be thirsty for more of Him.  We bow down before You Lord and say come Lord Jesus come, draw us ever so closer to you, we want to know You more and more intimately each day.  Quench us Lord from all the hurtful ways of man and show us what it truly means to be more intimate with You, truly Lord this is one we cannot do on our own.  We give You permission Lord to have Your way with us, we cast down all imaginations of fear that comes with walking a path in which our tomorrows are unknown.  We get scared sometimes Lord and fear tries to overtake us, but You are the promise and hope of a new day so we will trust in You and You alone.  May You get the glory You are so deserving of, in our lives and the lives of those we are blessed to love.  In Jesus’s precious name we pray.  Amen
