Grace Is a Blueprint

Maybe a door or just a hinge
 Maybe a switch or window
 Whatever you are just know
 You are part of  Father’s MAJOR crescendo

We are part of God’s design and plan. They will be called oaks of righteousness a planting of the Lord for the display of His splendor. (Isaiah 61:3)

I have come to realize

The blueprint we call grace

One I now recognize

We must live out to fully embrace

I have come to realize now

Grace is an unfolding roadmap

What I thought was a wrong turn

Was inherently for the gap

I have come to realize now

That grace, His Perfect design

Is in order for us to learn

Understand The Redeemer of time

I now see the road behind

And the one that lies before

Holds so much information

Than I could even explore

Destination then unknown

Things I considered a waste

Were actually leading me toward

With speed and forward haste

I didn’t understand the plans

I couldn’t read those prints

With etchings and funny pictures

That didn’t show hard evidence

But now as I see the building

The coming together of all

I certainly do realize

Redemption of mankind’s fall

Maybe a door or just a hinge

Maybe a switch or window

Whatever you are just know

You are part of  Father’s MAJOR crescendo

Nothing is too small to overlook

The design much more than potential

And whether believed or not

Each minute detail is essential

Coming together according to plan

Blueprints roadmaps supplier

It is because The Architect

Is The Builder and The Buyer

As a young man marries a young woman so will your Builder marry you: as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride so will your God rejoice over you. (Isaiah 62:5)

This morning I was reading John 14:26 in the amplified

This is the 7 Spirits and administration of the Holy Spirit. The scripture says, Jesus speaking,

But The Helper, The Holy Spirit,

Amp The Helper, [Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor, Counselor, Strengthener and Standby], will teach you all things and bring to remembrance all things I have said to you……..

I couldn’t help but fall more in love with Jesus and the perfection displayed by the order of Holy Spirits Ministry. Of course it would be just what was needed. Certainly it is perfect. I never doubted that, however when we see His design lining up with our need, it simply becomes more intimate and personal. We see His uniqueness for our needs, each personal and more than enough to equip us for every good work.

We are His own workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works we will require some help. Help like coaching, training, equipping, growing, convicting, and more than anything generous portions of His Love.

When I was coming out of my dysfunctional lifestyle I had made so many poor choices and my sins were great. I was ashamed that what I thought would work had failed, and failed miserably. I was left with a mess to clean up. I had violated my own conscience and was broken beyond human repair…but God!

Helper– to help and ready to show me how

Comforter– encouraged and encourages me still to keep going

Advocate– fighting for me, my very own protector, supplier, body guard, teaching me when I didn’t know how.

Intercessor– praying me through, to The Father

Counselor– there is not a safer place on earth to tell all your feelings and never be judged. Maybe corrected, always convicted of wrongdoing, but always in love.

Strengthener– when I wanted to quit, hearing the words, will you do it for Me? Who could quit? Quit? Never!

Standby-The One who comes along side so we are never alone.

No matter the mess, no matter what sins you may have committed, Our Father not only forgives us He sends us Help! Our very own personal Helper in our time of need.

John 14:14-18 He will give you another Comforter.

When I was out taking pictures of the Oak trees and the Acorns I remembered a poster I saw a few years back. Perhaps you’ve seen it also and heard this quote;

A mighty Oak is just a nut that stood it’s ground. So today if you have done all to stand, Stand therefore!!!!

God bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you and give you Shalom.

Until next time, thank you for listening with me. Laurette
