Time In a bottle

I love this word given be Sandy Warner of The Quickened Word. For me it is a follow up of another word I posted called, Cast Your Bread. Both remind me of this verse, ” Do not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Galatian 6:9

My Beloved, I have saved your time in a bottle and recorded all of your journey. I have treasured your every step in your pursuit to overcome and be with Me. All your tears, all your smiles, all your rabbit trails and all your bull’s eyed targets… they are all numbered one by one. Each treasure is safely tucked away in the deep recesses of My heart. How I cherish your innocent trust in Me, My Beloved.

Like a bottle tossed into the sea, you cast your prayers upon the waters of life and waited for the return of your harvest. In those lost and lonely times, when you saw no return and continued to span the horizon, you did not give up hope. You waited as an innocent child while I kept your bottle and held your heart in safe keeping as you continued to hold on to your faith. I AM your High Priest Who has been touched by your deepest wishes. I have prayed you through your darkest hours and I understand those things you carefully tucked inside that bottle, including your time of waiting. We both have had a time of waiting, precious one. I have waited eons for you and you are so greatly worth it. When I think of the rest of time and eternity, it is My extreme joy to think of spending it with you!

Ps 56:8-13 NKJV
You number my wanderings; Put my tears into Your bottle ; Are they not in Your book? When I cry out to You, Then my enemies will turn back; This I know, because God is for me. In God (I will praise His word), In the LORD (I will praise His word), In God I have put my trust; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me? Vows made to You are binding upon me, O God; I will render praises to You, For You have delivered my soul from death. Have You not kept my feet from falling, That I may walk before God In the light of the living?

  1. Selah….

  2. I signed back up to start getting her Ponderword e-mails again. Thanks for sending me the ones you thought I’d like. I’m only signing up for the Ponderword, so I don’t get overwhelmed with e-mails. I think it’s just a couple a week.

  3. Yeah, this is the only one that I get now. I like her stuff and I like NOT getting the other sometimes strange stuff!

  4. Yeah, I can do a little weird but not way out there weird.

    I know that God doesn’t fit in our little boxes. He’s too big for that.
