Red Balloons

This morning the Lord showed me red balloons floating up to the sky. They were full of worries and things we are holding our breath concerning. I saw the Father take a needle and pop some of the balloons. Asking us to take a deep breath and quieting our hearts with His love.
Then I saw Him hand us a needle as we rested securely beside Him. He was teaching us how to pop these balloons and take a breath in peaceful trust.
God is showing himself trustworthy. He is demonstrating His faithfulness and to those of us who will respond with trust. He is training us to walk in greater discernment and wisdom.
This all starts in our thought life. He is right there. If you look, some things that have worried you are breaking right before your eyes. Don’t let this praise go unsung. Let it be turned into the beginning of a new level of trust and opportunity to be trained further in the ways of peace. He is a good, good Father. A good parent is eager to teach their children.

Proverbs 3:21-22
My child, never drift off course from these two goals for your life:
to walk in wisdom and to discover discernment.
Don’t ever forget how they empower you.
For they strengthen you inside and out
and inspire you to do what’s right;
you will be energized and refreshed by the healing they bring.


I saw a little girl standing in the front window of her house. She was watching with wide-eyed expectancy. Her ears were tuned listening, and every movement was noticed as she waited. I knew she was waiting for the ice cream truck to come by her house. I saw no money in her hands. She knew that when that truck came by, she would be more than welcome to come and enjoy its bounty.

The truck rounded the corner and drove straight to her house. In fact, it pulled into her driveway. I saw that no other kids were waiting by their windows. It came where it was expected.
The little girl ran out to the truck, and I watched to see what treat she would select. Instead, she asked for an entire box of popsicles. Without hesitation, the driver handed her the large box. She immediately skipping with it to her backyard where a group of neighborhood kids was playing. They seemed completely unaware of the goodness parked just out front. They didn’t seem to hear it's loud, happy music. The little girl began to distribute the treats to all the amazed kids.

For those of us who will toon our ear and watch with expectation. We will be met by a truckload of refreshment. This refreshment is not meant just for us. We are to gather it and carry more than we need back to our circle, our families, and our communities. We will bring them God's supply of refreshment.

Watch with expectation guys. Continue reading the Word so when it’s song begins to play you recognize it and run out to gather every good thing God has for you. Do not be disappointed when those closest to you are not waiting with the same anticipation. God knew it would be this way. He is going to use your relationship with Him and open hands to bring refreshment through you!


Ephesians 2:7
Throughout the coming ages we will be the visible display of the 
infinite, limitless riches of his grace and kindness, 
which was showered upon us in Jesus Christ. 

Good Father

God is our good Father.
His intentions are good. 
His thoughts about you are good.
His reactions when we mess up are good.
His storehouse of everything you could ever need is good. 
He is good. 

If we Pursue a heart picture of God based on the Word of God, this is the picture it paints. Suddenly the darts of the enemy are met by an accurate image of our uncompromising precious loving father. Those darts of doubt, fear, and torment have no place to land.

Even our own self-talk that spirals into a pool of pain. This pool starts to drain from the deep end as the actual image of the one who made us and treasures us is revealed.

In my own life the undone places and parts of me that seem to be in a cycle that never seems to grow past me. Those places unravel as I love on my savior, as I allow the Holy Spirit a louder voice in my everyday life. This is all intentional but what comes of it almost seems effortless.
He is a good, good father and He loves us.

Romans 8:15-16
And you did not receive the “spirit of religious duty,” leading you back into the fear of never being good enough. But you have received the “Spirit of full acceptance,” enfolding you into the family of God. And you will never feel orphaned, for as he rises up within us, our spirits join him in saying the words of tender affection, “Beloved Father!” For the Holy Spirit makes God’s fatherhood real to us as he whispers into our innermost being, “You are God’s beloved child!”
