Hello Arising Friends!
I hope you all enjoyed a fresh breath of new life this Easter Sunday! It’s the season of Resurrection and New Beginnings! Where is God taking you in this new season? What is he resurrecting?
For me he is resurrecting intimacy and special conversations with him. I was recently curled up with a cup of coffee in my favorite chair, talking with the Lord. I often see pictures of what he is saying to me. I heard him say “I’m taking you home.” He took my hand and tucked my arm under His and said “are you ready?” I saw a red carpet rolled out for the reveal and felt like a child getting ready to go to Disneyland. Full of excitement and expectation! I said “Yes, I’m always excited about change or something new. Where are we going?” He said “on a LOVE walk.”
I currently live in Los Angeles, CA but Santa Barbara is my home. I now have my first grandchild there and have been wanting to get back to be more active in his life. When the Lord said “I’m taking you home,” I knew it was back to Santa Barbara. Within a week I was on a Skype interview and have now excepted a position at a UCSB sorority for the fall. He's taking me home...
It’s a season to Rise Up from the cozy den of winter to what God has prepared for your Spring! Arise My Darling…
Song of Songs 2:11 - The Passion Translation
The Bridegroom King
Arise, my dearest. Hurry, my darling. Come along with me! I have come as you have asked to draw you to my heart and lead you out. For now is the time, my beautiful on.
The season has changed, the bondage of your barren winter has ended, and the season of hiding is over and gone. The rains have soaked the earth and left it bright with blossoming flowers.
The season for singing and pruning the vines has arrived. I hear the cooing of doves in our land, filling the air with songs to awaken you and guide you forth.
Can you not discern this new day of destiny breaking forth around you? The early signs of my purpose and plans are bursting forth. The budding vines of new life are now blooming everywhere. The fragrance of their flowers whisper: “There is change in the air”. Arise, my love, my beautiful companion, and run with me to the higher place. For now is the time to arise and come away with me.
For you are my dove, hidden in the split-open-rock. It was I who took you and hid you up high in the secret stairway of the sky. Let me see your radiant face and hear your sweet voice. How beautiful your eyes of worship and lovely your voice in prayer.
You must catch the troubling foxes, those sly little foxes that hinder our relationship. For they raid our budding vineyard of love and ruin what I’ve planted within you. Will you catch them and remove them for me? We will do it together.
Are you ready or are you happy to hibernate in the bondage of your barren winter season of life? What’s lying outside of that den of winter warmth and complacency? It’s the season…In the natural and the Spiritual to Arise!
