Seek Me and You Shall Find

Dear beloved one I come to you today thinking about you and your life. I’m wondering what position your heart stands in today. With all that you may have accomplished in life to this point or even if you’ve gone through some hardships as I believe we all have I would like to know is your heart with the Lord. I asked this question because nothing in this life is permanent. Nothing in this life will complete you except Jesus.

We strive and we strive to attain… we strive to make a better life for ourselves various ways but to no avail we are never truly happy. We just cannot seem to feel full. There will never be a time that any of us can say that we have it all unless we have Christ Jesus in our lives.

Oh how my heart cries for the world as a whole. I can’t help but express how deeply we stand in need of Him in our lives. Not just while we are here in this temporary dwelling here on Earth but also most importantly our eternity. Salvation is very much needed to make it to heaven, to praise, sing, worship and be in the presence of the Most High God never to be in pain again. To never have to worry about sickness, death, finances, sadness, worry, stress and so forth is a blessing. It’s a weight off our shoulders that one sweet day we will forever be free of such things. But while we are here we will unfortunately go through.

Don’t fret dear heart and kick the bucket and throw in the towel. In Christ we can get through life and all that it brings for the good and the bad. Please hear my heart cry for you. Allow your heart and mind to begin to grasp what I’m saying and attempting to convey to you. I love you though I don’t know you. Jesus loves you more. He went to the Cross because He loves you. He died for all of our sins. Every sin imaginable. We aren’t worthy but because of His love He did it. The Father wanted to reconcile us back to Himself but the only way that could happen is by sending His Son to earth to be the perfect sacrifice to separate us from our old life that has been polluted with sin to one that has been washed and cleansed in the Blood of Jesus.

“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.” Acts‬ ‭4:12‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Today is a gift from God. The One True God and Heavenly Father. By no good deeds, gifts or works have any of us been given life today. It was by His choice and abundance of love for us that we are here. His mercy and grace runs deep though it should not be taken for granted. I pray you decide to make a change in your life for the greater good. If you don’t believe me try Him for yourself. I won’t turn back to my old life. There’s nothing back there for me no matter how tempting it may be.

“Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭34:8‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

I thought of you today as I was listening to praise and worship music. With such profound love I had to write you a letter. Enjoy the song below and allow it to infiltrate deep down into your heart to make a decision. I pray you choose Jesus and the blessed life you can have in Him.

Your future Sister-in -Christ,

When Change Comes a Knockin’

Hello there..

On this day that we are now in my heart feels inclined to share a message of encouragement with you. Do you mind? May it wrap around your heart with gentleness and love as it has mine. God is faithful to supply when we call upon Him.

Warmest regards from my heart to yours,
Terra

Cling to the Lord even through the tough times. Wow. This was so befitting today. Change is hard but needed at times. Just like the butterfly which was once a caterpillar, time and people change. Seasons change too. You can’t move forward while still looking back.

Let go and let God.

Sometimes we hold ourselves up from new beginnings or a new season because we cling to the familiar.

Earlier today I actually saw 2 swallowtail butterflies each time I went out the door. Once out the front door and then the back door. Isn’t that something?!!

There are times when the Lord will use the smallest things in nature or what we may not really pay attention to to get our attention.

For me right now in this new day that I am experiencing all I can say is “Thank You Lord for showing me. I hear you and I see what you are saying”

Dear hearts…. sometimes the blessing will come through the change if you are just willing to let change take its course. 

Be encouraged in this new day, season and change that you are facing. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Philippians 4:13 KJV❤

Thankful Thursday

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

Romans 12:2 NKJV

Happy Thankful and Blessed Thursday everyone! May today be filled with love, mercy and grace towards one another in Christ Jesus. For it is by his will that we are still here amongst the living. Allow this new day to go forward with passion and purpose. Leave yesterday behind and count today as joy to do something different. Be blessed and encouraged. ~Terra  🌷

Sweet Melody Resonating

Lord I worship and rejoice with a heart of thanksgiving. I love it when songs are placed on my heart to worship You! Whether it be with or without music, let it be a sweet , sweet sound in Your ear.

I will praise You, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will be glad and rejoice in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High. (Psalm 9:1-2 NKJV)

How full of abundant blessings, mercy and grace I receive from King Jesus. This moment I share leaves me wanting more of His presence. How I long to be with Him one day in heaven praising and rejoicing for eternity with my brothers and sisters in Christ! One day we will all be together. God bless each and every soul that cleaves unto the Lord for He is worthy of our praises.

I thank Him for giving me such a blessing in this video. The song stands all by itself in how I feel about Him, but to incorporate it with the very things that make me smile has me feeling quite giddy. Butterflies and flowers!

Amazing……Butterflies have my face beaming from one cheek to the other!

Thank you Lord for the every day creations that we were given to enjoy! ~ Living Simply In Your Abundance!

Butterfly Joy: Living Simply In Abundance of God’s Creations

“Dear Lord, please don’t allow this butterfly to fly away before I can get a picture of it! It’s sooo beautiful!”

*I did not get a chance to grab my camera, but I used my iPhone while it was in my back pocket.

While I was on the phone a short bit ago wishing my best friend a Happy Birthday, my son was going out the door to the backyard . He came right back and told me that there was a butterfly outside.

I had just come home from shopping and its well over 102 degrees…. I’m hot and tired, yet I flew out the door to capture a picture not giving my lack of energy a second thought! Anyone who knows me knows that I am crazy about butterflies and I end up with the biggest smile on my face! (STILL smiling as I type. What a blessing to receive!)

Only the good Lord knows why I become so elated when I see butterflies. This has put the biggest smile on my face today so far. This actually beats buying the pair of shoes I just came home with!

Sounds weird? Maybe so, but it’s the simple things in life that bring me the greatest joy! We have been given so many free gifts from the Lord that we really can not comprehend how or why he did what he did in the Beginning of time. I wonder if we truly appreciate the love, design and creation of His mighty works. Just think about it. All Creation was made at the sound of his voice in a matter of days.

This joy I have the world didn’t give it to me and it surely can’t take it away!

May you all have a wonderful summer!

And the evening and the morning were the fifth day. And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good. (Genesis 1:23-25 KJV)
