“Great tranquility of heart is his who cares for neither praise nor blame.”
Thomas Kempis



The Lord is saying. Things are becoming clearer to you and more defined, yet there is much more to be revealed. Do not become complacent but continue in prayer, for there are threads that have not yet been unravelled. Know for sure though, my child, that you will see my victory in every situation as you walk through this time with me.

“Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints. (Ephesians 6:18)”

We are to be constant in and out of season. Now is not the time to relax from our communion with Christ. Only the Holy Spirit can show us what are the true state of affairs in our immediate circumstances. Only in our contact with Him can we see what the next move is. As Jesus was forever looking to the Father to see what He was doing so we should be looking and ever ready to do His will. There appears to be an increase in activity in the demonic realm. We can only overcome by spiritual means, not by carnal. To know exactly how to pray and what the truth is about each situation, we need now more than ever to be in tune with God's voice by the Spirit and in His word.

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.
—2 Corinthians 10:3-5 (NKJV)














The rose.

The blush on the rose will not falter to bless every heart with great love

For the rose is a gift from the Father Who longs to share in a language from above

For He is the Father who is faithful longing that all His children might hear

What is deep in the depths of His heart and how He holds all so dear

Springing forth from the earth as diamonds is the love of God for me

Reaching all those hurting places, now and when by the lee.

The daffodils now blooming as in centuries past of old can cool and bring such solace more sure than refined gold

The cry of the heart for comfort may daunt the human man, but He in all his glory will show how much He can.

Catherine O'Halloran.
