In The Crushing

In the crushing In the pressing You are making new wine

In the soil I now surrender.

You are breaking new ground

PRE-CHORUS: So I yield to You and to Your careful hand When I trust You I don’t need to understand

CHORUS: Make me Your vessel Make me an offering Make me whatever You want me to be I came here with nothing But all You have given me Jesus bring new wine out of me

VERSE 2: In the crushing In the pressing You are making new wine In the soil I now surrender You are breaking new ground

VERSE TAG: You are breaking new ground

BRIDGE: Where there is new wine There is new power

There is new freedom The Kingdom is here I lay down my old flames To carry Your new fire today.

The Lion of the Tribe of Judah

IMG_0281 (1)

I have something that will like to share with the Lord’s permission.  This is for the Glory of our beloved Jesus.  Amen!

One of my paintings that I did recently was about a lion, not a fearful lion, but a very gentle, loving, tender face lion.
The thing is that my friend in PR that introduced me to SSV love lions and she fell in love with the paint.  She told me if I was going to sell it to please let her buy it.  Conversation stayed there
 
I went then to the basement, where I paint and the lion was lit!  He was resting in the sofa where there is one of the windows where I paint.
 
I send it to her in a text so she could see this effect of the light in the face of the lion.
 
She opened the text and went to enlarged it, the lion ROAR to her!  She inmediately texted me back to see if I put that in the text as a joke, Nope, I didn’t.  So we left it there.
 
Next morning she calls, she had to go and pick her son because he was drunk and the friends call, he lost his job, is 25 and got drunk.
During her morning cleaning the Lord told her, “I was with your son last night like a roaring lion, the Lion of the Tribe of Juda!”
 
Why the Lord told her that?  The boy went walking in San Juan, got lost, his friends were not the ones that call mom, but some strangers he saw in the street, well the stranger saw him first and approach him, because he was about to enter the worse place in San Juan were drug lords live and they kill just for because.
 
The Lord also told her, It was ME, who used the painting to ROAR at you to give you a sign for what was going to happen, I was like the Lion of Juda walking and protecting your son and avoiding him more trouble,
 
This is so the Lord.
  It has given me a real sense of purpose as I paint with the Lord.  The thing is I wanted to paint the Lion since Sept. and the Lord kept signaling other things and I was sad in that sense.  Until He gave me the ok and told me I want it BIG!
 
Sweet Family whatever the Lord is asking of you in your creative side, don’t hesitate and start, He is waiting to use that to help someone else, to give them a sign of His wonders and powers.  It doesn’t matter whether you know how to do it or not.  Just TRUST in Him, He will guide you and annoint you to do His gift for you in this season.
 
Please, let’s start for His Glory, is all for HIM.  He is the one that deserves all the glory since the moment we open our eyes until the moment we close them at night, and even then our heart and spirit keeps praising Him non stop.
 
Is like that first time you feel in love.  You want just to be attached to Him, and that is what has being happening with me.  My love for the Lord and my trust in Him has grown so much, family it has being Him alone with me in the basement, my dungeon is how I call my spot in the basement were I spend the most hours with the Lord in the day.  Cold, wet and damp, but with Him we can do it all.
 
Are you ready to start?  I’m cheering you up all the way.  The Lord divides the time in the day that there is time for cooking, some cleaning, much prayer and intercession.  Those moments in the dungeon is when the praises are powerful and I feel His presence constantly, specially when is time to start a new painting.
 
Sorry I took so much time of your precious time with the Lord or family.  Please forgive me for that.  I just wanted you to know how important is for us to work on our gifts as well in our prayers and intercession.  He makes time, I promise you that.
 
Love you always with great love that the Lord has put in that heart He gave me when He made me.
 
May the Lord bless you, keep you and shine His glory over you for the world to see the great and powerful Spirit of the Lord in you.  May the Lord help you and give you the grace necessary for you to become nothing and He become everything in your lives.
