He doesn't ask for anything,
as it is never about him,
because it is always about someone else
because that is who he is~
my man whose birthday we celebrate today.
I am so humbled that GOD has chosen
Hoyt to be my husband,
who is a man of GOD
who wears JESUS like a piece of skin,
because that is just who he is
and will always be
he is all heart
every second of every day
and he doesn't even have to say any words.
I thank GOD for
knitting him together in his mother's womb,
breathing life into his being
on this day of yesteryear
when he entered into this world.
Happy Birthday Hoyt,
to my one & only
who lives out the
the truth that
ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS
because he knows how to
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking,
it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres"
(I Corinthians 13:4-7).
How does he?
JESUS is the ONE
whom he follows so closely.
JESUS who LOVES beyond measure
you & me & everyone else
who could do
what JESUS did on
that day marked as
when HE spoke
HIS LAST WORDS
of the ultimate sacrifice that would bring
JOY to all mankind~
"IT IS FINISHED".
JESUS DID IT so we never have to.
HE GAVE HIS LIFE
so HE could give us our
that lives beyond the CROSS.
Today as we begin
our JOURNEY TO EASTER
drawing closer to
by FASTING from
those pesky pounds that strive to rob from our lives
that was birthed on that
where there were no chocolate bunnies,
but an empty grave
for HE HAS RISEN
so we will too!
Are you ready to lose the first "pound"?
Are you ready to make room for more of
as you become less.
The first pound to go is
and that begins with
FASTING from yourSELF,
weighs you down.
Think about it.
"Trust in & rely confidently on
with all your heart & rely on your
insight or understanding &
In all your ways know & acknowledge & recognize
Is YOUR "SELF"
"able to make your paths straight & smooth
[removing obstacles that block your way]?"
(Proverbs 3, Your "Self" Version)
When SELF takes over it never ends well.
Do you need a divorce from YOUR SELF?
I divorced myself long ago,
reached down & grabbed me out of the pit that I was in
was getting in the way.
At the moment I grabbed HIS hand,
the divorce was final.
Are you ready to divorce YOUR SELF?
I know a great JUDGE who will do it for you &
HE won’t even judge you,
because it is YOU who HE wants.
"Humble yourselves [with an attitude of repentance and insignificance] in the presence of the LORD, and HE will exalt you [HE will lift you up, HE will give you purpose]"
Oh the STANCE OF HUMILITY
is where YOU become YOUR best SELF.
So let's FAST from SELF
Every time you start depending on
deny YOUR SELF
"Trust in and rely confidently on the LORD with all your heart & do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know & acknowledge & recognize HIM, & HE will make your paths straight & smooth [removing obstacles that block your way].
(Proverbs 3:5-8 AMP).
Don't you feel lighter already?
Saying Goodbye SELF
has become so easy
you & I
"TRUST IN YOU"
