Does Anyone Know How To Strengthen A Heart????

I just finished adding my comments on a blog that belongs to a dear sister in Christ and friend here on SP.

She asked the question ... Does anyone know how to strengthen a heart? Almost immediately I was compelled to read what she had written in this blog. I believe that she was asking about how to strenghten her physical heart and every answer that I read was good food for thought. Then I heard the Word of God flow through my mind and He spake to me answering her question. HE ...
I just finished adding my comments on a blog that belongs to a dear sister in Christ and friend here on SP.

She asked the question ... Does anyone know how to strengthen a heart? Almost immediately I was compelled to read what she had written in this blog. I believe that she was asking about how to strenghten her physical heart and every answer that I read was good food for thought. Then I heard the Word of God flow through my mind and He spake to me answering her question. HE said, "I DO, I know how to strengthen a heart!" My mind was overwhelmed with what He began to say and show me. I heard the following ... Wait on the Lord and be of good courage and He shall strengthen thine heart. Wait I say on the LORD.

I saw my friends and associates here on SP and the teams that He has given to me. I saw the love and support that He has blessed me to give and receive. I perceived waiting the way He wanted me to understand it. Uunderstanding began growing in me in a differnent way and it has blessed my soul.

(To know what I said on her blog you'll have to go read it.) Her question has stirred my soul. I felt like I was being liberated and indeed I was. Thank you my dear friend. I began to see us all praising God. Giving Him the glory and honor that due unto Him. Waiting upon someone, and or for someone means having selfless motivations. You want to please the one you are serving. You are patient, kind, courteous, humble and submissive. You are yeilded and you want to see that one fulfilled. Your needs, wants and desires are not even an issue. It is totally about catering to that indiviual or those people.

Wives cater to their husbands, husbands cater to their wives. Parents cater to their children and even children cater to us all. We all, if employed cater to our superiors on the job.
So who then does not wait. We all wait upon someone at some point in our lives or even daily.

I want to WAIT upon the LORD. I desire to cater to HIM. I want to surrender to HIS need for me His desire to be loved by me and cared for by me. I desire to let Him know that I want this .... therefore I praise Him. While I wait I will praise Him.

I want to praise Him and consider all He has done for me. My dear dear friends. The day that I wrote the e-mail to the teams and said that I was considering dissolvong the teams I believe it set me on a path. I needed to do what I did. I needed to say what I said and I needed to hear from you.

I needed my heart strengthened. I felt as though I could not continue here with you. It was not enjoyable and I all too often felt alone. As I wrote to you II heard the voice of Moses talking to the angel that was heading out to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. I heard him asking, will you destry it if ... and the angel replied ... I will not destroy it for 10. Then I heard the Spirit of the Lord say to me ... wherever two or three are gathered together in My name I will be in the midst.

I want you to know that I will not destroy it!!!!!!!!
I will not disslove the teams. Because if no one is here but me I will neve be alone. I stand for you and with you. It is not always easy to do so and I will do it whether I have help or not. My help cometh from the Lord and if He chooses to give me help it will come. I am comitted to be here as long as Father says to be here. I am growing, my heart is being strengthened by all of you that did respond to my letter. It encouraged me not to give up the fight.

So my friends we will continue our teams even if there is only two or three gathered together there. I will continue even if I am left standing all alone. I am not the team leader ... Christ is. I am now attempting to following His lead as He wants me too. I realize that I had to have been the one out of order. I was looking at what I wasn't getting and I stopped catering to my team-mates. Forgive me please. A hand-maiden is a helper and server. Lord teach me to patiently wait for service, and give me the heart of a servant.

I love you all and thanks for the support whether I have understood it or not.

Peace to you all in Christ.
Sheila


Let everything that has breath .... PRAISE THE LORD, PRAISE YE THE LORD!

I had an idea for The August Monthly goal for "Sparked Night Shifters." Get at least 7 hours of sleep a day and do at least 30 minutes of cardio a day.

Your Loving Heart
You touch my life with your kindness;
You know just what I need.
Your loving heart shows its caring
In your every thought and deed.
