Yah is into miracles

hope

I’m subscribed to an email list that sends out a different thought/writing every Shabbat/Sabbath & wanted to share this one with y’all. The Author’s website is http://www.keepit7.wordpress.com

Yahuwah gives miracles. He performs them for our joy and benefit! And he does this every day. Sometimes in our great rush and fury, we miss it. We overlook a “small” miracle. This is tragic. Often when we need Yah most, we shove Him aside- “Not now, God, can’t talk. I have problems. I don’t have time!” (What?!?!?!?!?)

I know I do it.

He is here to solve our problems, or bring us through them, but He has given us freedom of choice, which means we have to accept His help. Elohim watches over His own. All we have to do is trust Him!

Remember, Shalom is not the superficial peace the world promotes, but a deep inner peace and harmony “in the battle”.

“He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me: for there were many against me.”
Psalm 55:18
My point is this: Yah will work in our lives, whatever is going on in them, good or bad. He has done many miracles in my own life, Including a huge one this week. Actually every day is a miracle, since he gives us life; we could not breathe without Him.

So praise Him! Praise the name of Yah! He will glory, He will conquer the evil one! His Truth will never be undefended, and His people will never be alone.

HalleluYah!

Shalom!

Yah loves you & so do I!

Have Faith

Faith is a journey that stretches you, challenges you, and most importantly, gives you hope. Without faith in Yhwh, there is no better life that lies beyond this one. Life is just a cosmic accident, ruled by unguided processes or chance. Where is the meaning in that? The feeling at the bottom of the bottle is worse than before. The drug must be stronger to ease the emptiness. Surely, we can find individual some superficial meaning, but eventually, most people get to the end of that rope quickly.

What do you find at the end of that rope? If not Yhwh, then you will try to hold on to the rope in a futile attempt to keep yourself from falling. Yet, your hands will tire and you must release your grip on it. When that happens, to what do you descend upon? If not Yhwh, then the place where you land can be a tenuous one that tosses you about from the winds of change that life ultimately brings. But when you place your faith in God, you fall onto a firm foundation, one built on the knowledge of Yhwh and the experience of His love for you. That is the best place to land in this journey called life.

I slightly altered this from some good thoughts out of the blog https://thinkdivinely.com/loving-the-unseen-god/ 

The life of the believer

should be based in both

the knowledge of Yah’s provable existence

& knowing

His love.

Shalom for now,

Yah’s girl

Does Yahuah Dance? Oh yes!! :D

Note: I did not write this, although I altered it slightly. A good message! L’ Chaim!

A Bible verse recently caught my attention:

“[Yahuah] your [Yah] is in your midst, a victorious warrior. He will exult over you with joy. He will be quiet in his love, He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy.” (Zephaniah 3:17 NASV)

The Hebrew word, ‘rejoice,’ means to “spin around under violent emotion.” The phrase “rejoice over you” literally means to “dance, skip, leap, and spin in joy.”

So, the latter part of this verse is more accurately translated, “He will dance over you with singing.”

I love the visualization that comes to my mind when I read this. Yahuah is portrayed as a mighty warrior, singing and dancing over me with shouts of joy.

It describes how a warrior must have felt in the Old Testament after winning a hard-fought battle and realizing the victory was his.

I can envision power, authority and strength exuding from him as he steps into a victory dance. I imagine whooping, hollering, leaping, dancing and victory shouts.

We see it today, as well. It’s not much different from a team hitting a winning field goal on the final play in the Super Bowl or striking the winning goal in the World Cup. There are tears, shouting, rejoicing, dancing and singing. It’s not hard to picture because we see it all the time.

For generations, singing and dancing have been the ultimate expressions of joy.

Yet, many people perceive Yahuah as stern, gloomy and servile, but Zephaniah does not describe Him this way.

The prophet portrays Yahuah as glad and happy as He delights in His creation — His sons and daughters — you and me! Therefore, we should not be ashamed or embarrassed to dance with joy, since Yahuah is in our midst rejoicing over us.

It is a holy union as Yahuah delights in us and we in turn rejoice in His love!

“For as a young man marries a virgin. So your sons will marry you. And as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so your [Yahuah] will rejoice over you.” (Isaiah 62:5 NASV)

I love to dance in worship to [Yahuah] during worship services. I sense His presence and that He is very close to me.

Sometimes, I feel like Yahuah is dancing with me even as I revel in His presence. I rejoice in Yahuah as He rejoices in me.

This is not the perception of Yahuah that many of us have. We need to begin visualizing Yahuah’s love for us in light of this passage.
