Stir Up Those Gifts

 

“Stir up the gifts within thee…Bring to light the things I have shown you.  Take the advance, move on. Don’t hold back, instead bring forth.  The depths of your soul are deep and filled with many treasures. It takes time and a willingness to seek out and find them.  By moving on ahead and by pressing on you will find the treasures you seek. Continually look and look carefully or you will miss them. Some are so small they are easy to overlook. These very treasures, when found, bring the most value. Begin now…search…”

Thirty three ago on that Monday morning I was hungry for revelation, visions, poetry, writings & insights. I still hunger for God’s attention.

My hope is that I never out-grow my hunger. I dance and twirl, jump up & down showing God my latest tricks but it is when I get quiet & crawl up into His lap that I am fed.

  1. These were years that you were investing in a group of girls called the Handmaidens. Thank you Ruthan. Lori

    1. I have very fond memories of you girls. A few weeks ago I met with some young ladies to make “Prayer Boxes” to hold copies of their prayers. I told them all about the “Handmaidens of the Lord” and the fun we had. You are good girls.
