The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.

The Forgotten   Storm.
Catherine   O'halloran.

Mysterious moments
of special calm,
With sunlight pulsating
on the warm wind,
as spears from sparkling fountains
touch the depths of frost in forgotten hearts,
so sad, where the whispering wind
can no longer remember the storm -
and the slumbering sparrows
have found a peace.
"not one sparrow falls to the ground".................

We should fear the real threat 
instead of the false one

Part 1


The Lord told me last night that there was something to fear more than losing the things I'm afraid of losing. I went to sleep with this thought... that the consequences of crossing the boundaries I am tempted to cross because of fear, are real. These consequences are to be feared much more than the irrational fears that the enemy plays out in front of me.

The Lord showed me very clearly in my waking hours, that satan who is a very definite individual has a very definite plan to steal a very definite thing from us. He can't take it by force, only by baiting us. He is after stealing something more important than the things we are afraid of losing. He knows that he cannot steal these things.. God has them firmly in his hand. The other thing is that he doesn't particularly want to steal these things. He is after something much more important to him.

When satan tempted Eve, he knew what he was after. He had a very definite plan to build up a stronghold of lies and Eve fell for it and got caught up in a cloud of deception.. Maybe if she had understood that he was after something.......and known her protection was in believing God's word. God had given Adam and Eve authority and power over the earth and over every living creature. He had given them everything they would ever need to live in bliss. What did they lose after the fall? What had satan managed to take from them? What will we lose if we believe his lies? What ground will we lose if we give into his deception? What word is the Lord wanting us to stand on.

... and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For thine is the Kingdom the power and the glory, for ever and ever.

Revelation 3:10-12
Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown. He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name.
