Leaving Sparkpeople for a time

Monday, November 17, 2008

Hello friends!!
I have been quite pre-occupied as of late. I seem to be lost in life with much of what life has to offer and I am enjoying it immensely.
Jesus said that He came to give us life and life more abundantly. This is the life that I want to live and receive from the only One who can give it to me. Much of my time is spent with Him in prayer, in reading the Word, in meditation of the Word and application of His word. I love Him with all of my heart and I desire to live life to the fullest whatever that means for me personally as I walk along side of my Jesus! What a glorious promise! What a glorious Savior we serve! Oh taste and see that the Lord is good! Receive daily manna from heaven!

Perhaps sparks was for a season. I met wonderful friends here. Many of you have encouraged me, prayed with me, ministered to me had tea with me (sparkgoodies). The Lord has used many of you as vessels of all that He is and all that He has to offer and I thank you for your obedience to Him. I have enjoyed my time here on sparks but feel or sense that it is coming to an end. For a while, I will just take a break and while on that break I want to pray about coming back or just deleting my page.

But to all of you who I came to know through sparkpeople;
You are dear to my heart and you each have touched me in a special way. You are valuable and significant. Remember that.
Know that in my prayer time, as the Lord brings you to my remembrance, I will pray.
Know that I appreciate and respect you.
Know that through Christ, you can do ALL things.
Know that nothing is impossible with God and everything is possible to those who believe!

I will miss you, our conversations, our ministering gifts, our laughs and praying together. But perhaps, by the grace of God, we will meet again.

I will leave you with this;

He wants to reveal His personal promises for your every need, your every desire, your every circumstance.
With God, ALL things are possible!

He is Jehovah Nissi; Our Victory (Exodus 17:15)
There is nothing that can come our way, that God cannot bring us through
He is our strength
Be assured that if God sends us out on stony paths, He will provide us with strong shoes!

He is our Jehovah Rophe; Our Healer (Exodus 15:26)
There is no sickness or disease, nor wound or scar that God isn't willing or able to heal
He is the Lord who heals
Difficulties to a Christian are only miracles that haven't happened yet!

He is our Jehovah Shammah; He is there for us (Ezekiel 48:35)
There isn't any place in the world in which we can go, that God isn't there
He is with us everywhere and in everything
IN HIM, under the shadow of His wings, is the arena which births an overcomer!

See what He sees
Know what He knows
Hear what He is speaking
by sacrificing your time.
Time alone with Him; Pray
He longs to show you
He yearns to fill you
He desires to use you for His glory.
He wants to reveal secret mysteries
and show you great and wondrous things;
the secrets hidden in the chambers of His heart.

With IN HIM, we lose ourselves
With out Him, we find ourselves lost again
OH taste and SEE, that the Lord is good
He longs to be intimate with you!

God bless you my dear friends!

    Awww Brenda, can't say I don't understand, I do. Seasons... God bless you and I thank Him often in remembrance of you. I never understood how much God loved me until you showed me. Thank you, and You Lord for that. I know many many others have been blessed by your ministry as well. And, of course, when one person is blessed that blessing gets passed on. I realize now that we can't function properly in this life of Christ if we don't know how much the Father loves us.
    Thank you Brenda, we all love you here on Spark People, Kim

    My dear, dear Friend and Sister in Christ,
    There are no mere words to tell you the joy that I've received from knowing you although not in person. Your words that you have shared have both encouraged and inspired me many, many times! I will miss you dearly but as others before me here have posted, I too understand. Be all that the Lord has called you to be. If your season here on sparks has come to an end I pray that our friendship will somehow find it's way back to one another If you want to keep in touch please sparkmail me and I will gladly give you my email address and or phone number. I'm going to hold you to that invitation to come up to your farm one day. In God's time it will happen...

    Until we "meet" again
    Love you and God bless you

    I, too , will miss you. But I know what you mean. God speed. Karla

    P.S. I consider you one of my very best friends, although we've never met physically -- there was that forever spiritual bond that "sisters" have. I will truly miss our "conflabs". It's an exciting time to be alive; God is stirring up a whirlwind and I remember years ago praying that when He moved I would move with Him; I didn't want to be out of the river.. We may be going to a new church that has that vision, and is very oriented toward the spread of the kingdom message to all nations. Very intimate relationship oriented, both with Jesus and with each other; wanting people to be transparent. So I really hope we get plugged in there. Again, adios, amigo.

    Sorry to see you go, but I do understand. You have ministered to me and been an encouragment. He will direct your paths and your time with Him is ustmost. He is leading me into deeper intimacy.
