Be Thou My Vision

Hello brothers and sisters and Heartdwellers family.

I have been really busy of late with worldly activities in preparation for farming. Father Derrick and I had to travel for as well to pick up our ministry vehicle.

Thank you again for your generosity in donating toward the Phase 1 building of the City of God. However, with all the excitement of things happening; I neglected Jesus. I could feel the distance between us was no longer a cross but it was me being too engulfed in everything else, but deep prayer and time spent with him. Today we were supposed to go to a 4 day prayer conference and I had told myself that when I get back after this conference, I would buckle down to make more time, quiet time, because after all; we paid for it already (the conference I mean) and their type of prayer is a bit different from the silence and solitude I was longing for.

The Lord intervening in our lives as He does, had me wake up with ‘apollo’. This is an eye infection in Ghana, very well known and very common. It’s like pink eye, but on steroids. Immediately [when] Father Derrick saw it, he said: “Nope. You’re not going, but staying home” because it’s very contagious. There was part relief because I knew I wanted this time alone with the Lord, and another part that really wanted to go, but I knew Jesus was behind the scenes. Sure enough, I pulled Rhema cards and they were.. ouch..

The two that stuck out said:

Adulterous Bride “How weak is your heart? says the Lord God, seeing you do all these things, the works of an imperious harlot” Ezekiel 16:30

You would do well to examine your conscience. Have you been unfaithful to the Lord entertaining lovers of money, world or own appetites?

Ooh this card hit me right between the eyes and I knew I had been unfaithful in so many ways that I couldn’t count.

The second was:

Do not give into sadness or brooding. Distract yourself-renew courage and do not worry. Be happy- God has a good things for you. Sirach 30

Jesus is so kind and sweet that even in our correction He always finds a way to encourage us. Thank you Lord for Your goodness and mercy. So after receiving Him in the Lords supper, I began:

Good morning Jesus,

I’m here, your harlot bride. I ask for the grace of contrition. I have been steeped in the world lately very steeped and neglected you in various ways please forgive me. Forgive me for despising staying behind for the conference when it’s an opportunity for you to have me all to Yourself. What I have been praying for to pray and work without distractions. Help this next few days be fruitful for us.

Jesus what’s on your heart?

Jesus began,

 “Seek and you will find. Have you sought Me my Brides? Or just rushed through prayers so that you a could get into work? Have you desired the pleasantries of this world with these indulgences and enticements? Or you have rather desired spiritual food which comes from My mouth and denied yourself more and more?”

I haven’t done any of these things Lord but I’ve have rather done the latter. Forgive me Lord, it’s been hard trying to find a balance with all My responsibilities.

 “Well that is why I have given you these few days. You need a reset beloved you and all My Brides. A reset in thinking, in doing and in being. I want you to take these next few days to find your rest in Me. Much will happen when you come before Me. In My presence I have healing available for you, energy restored and vitality and passion again for My will , all will be given to you but you must come and just rest.

 “Allow My presence and My love be enough for you beloved. I have needed you by My side, I have needed the consolation of My Bride, her consoling words, her loving gaze and glance, and her loving kisses and embrace, to carry Me through these dark days and hours as eternity comes to a head with each passing moment. There is so much going on beloved, so much evil in the world”. (and I could Him then just sigh.)

 Lord, I’m sorry I haven’t been there for You as I should. What would you like Me to do today for You?

 “Think of Me, in all things beloved. Be faithful to the hour of Divine Mercy and rosary. Be faithful to adoration, contemplating John 13-17 in preparation for My passion. Console Me for those who won’t console Me, or even think of Me and all the work we do. Let’s do it together. This is the time of great awakening for many. All these small, but faithful actions of yours will prepare the way for souls to be ready to be touched by My spirit in the coming days. Oh trust Me, My little one, there is a great outpouring coming, but I need My Brides ready and in place for that. That is why there is great sanctification going on .

 “My Brides, many of you have gotten lazy in your pursuit of holiness. You have given into comfortability and indulgences especially in dryness, that is a real test for My Brides for many of you wonder astray with daydreams, aimless thoughts, several distractions and temptations of the world to lure you away, to lure you to sleep. Awake My beloved ones, awake. I am bringing the kiss of a new life, renewed mind and fresh fire to stir your hearts again in flame with love for Me and for My will. I know you are battle weary, but much fruit is coming from all that you have endured and sown My little ones, much fruit. You can trust in My words.”

Lord, I had that dream where I woke up and the song ‘Be thou my vision’ was ringing in my head over and over again.

 “It is good for you to contemplate those words, you and all My Brides. Sing it often if necessary, that your eyes would continue to stay on Me, seeking Me, and pursuing me. I am calling My wayward wife back to Me. My beloved Brides, I will heal your souls and fill your heart with sweet contentment, that nothing else will be able to match up you. When you go wayward you start feeling insecure, then confusion comes and then condemnation. Ultimately wanting to separate you and I forever, but I will not not allow it  I am always chasing after you, for what God has put together, may nothing put asunder and that goes for you and Me. My beloved Brides, the only thing that can keep us apart is if your lack of pursuit and co-operation. I promise, if you seek Me with your whole heart, you will find Me.”

(song lyrics.)

Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart

Naught be all else to Me, save that Thou art

Thou my best thought, by day or by night

Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light

Be Thou my wisdom, and Thou my true word,

I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord.

Thou my great Father, and I Thy true son

Thou in me dwelling and I with Thee one

Riches I heed not, nor vain, empty praise

Thou mine inheritance, now and always

Thou and Thou only first in my heart

High King of Heaven, my treasure Thou art.

High King of Heaven, my victory won

May I reach Heaven’s joys, O bright Heaven’s sun

Heart of my own heart, whatever befall

Still be my vision, O ruler of all

Heart of my own heart, whatever befall

Still be my vision, O ruler of all.

From Jesus With Love

My Name Is Mary Elisha I started this blog 6 years ago on my journey walking with Jesus and never knew all that he had in store for me. It has been a journey of tears, trust and confidence in him. Knowing that He is my loving spouse and he wouldn't lead me astray however he has given many suprises along the way! lol Upon fully surrendering my life to Jesus, he has completely turn my world right side up. Filled me with his spirit and showed himself in supernatural ways. He has completely left me in awe leaving me with the thought.....(as most Holy Spirit filled followers of Christ also say) why didn't I surrender 15 years ago! lol. When I started this blog I was a 30 years old zealous for the Lord and desiring to make his love known because it tranformed my life. However, I didn't know the way and the road in which he would take me. It is the way of the cross, the way of holiness and the way of love. Living a life seperated from the world and compltely concecrated to him. I no longer belong to myself, but to him as he has led me to a life of hiddeness and deep intimacy I didn't know was so avalialble for all who would make their lives, their hearts his home. He has given me a new name, a renewed purpose and a heavenly family who is so very present and so real to me. Saints who cheer me on, give me council and pray for me everyday to ensure I do the Lords will and the greatest gift of all He has led me to his Mother! Who has always been My Mother just never knew it. I love Mother Mary, she is my heart, my friend and confidant and continues to prepare me to a worthy bride to her son, Jesus. It is she, who has handpicked me for this mission and to run the community "City of God: Sacred Heart Refuge" in Ghana, West Africa. This is her mission and her ministry as a gift to Jesus and I just get to be her handmaiden. Heartdwellers Ghana is an extention of Heartdwellers ministry by Mother Clare and Father Ezekiel from Still Small Voice Channel. Jesus has taught us about divine intimacy with him. As we dwell in his heart, He and the Father come to make their home within us. (John Where Jesus is all of heaven is as well because the kingom of God is within. So here may you come to get fresh manna from Jesus and any ther saints who may want to give us council, encouragment and exhortation that we may finish this race of faith and run to win the prize. To be a bride spotless, blameless adorened with purity, carying the fire of charity and zeal for our fathers glory. That we maybe ready for him when He comes back for us. Our Lord, Jesus Christ is amazing the intimate you become with him the more in awe he leaves you. I hope this blog draws you nearer to our Lord and you began to open the ears and the eyes of your heart to all that he has to say to you and show you. All of these messages are from Jesus with you. May you be blessed by his words of life. God bless you!
