Hey guys sorry for not posting for so long i've hardly had internet acess for the past month (and still don't have) as I have been moving house .So I won't be posting properly for a while ,but i thought i'd leave you with the following poem which i discovered in one of Keala Thompson's audio podcasts.I forgot precisely which one it was ,but when i find out i will let you guys know,but all of his sermons are really good and if you have chance you should have a listen :

I once knew the name of the Bishop who wrote this poem ,but guess what i can't remember it but when i find out i will let you know .This poem is not my own,hope you are blessed and encouraged by it:

Everyone longs to give themselves completely to another.
To have a deep soul relationship with another. To be loved thoroughly and exclusively.
BUT, God to the Christian says " NO"
Not until you're satisfied and fulfilled
and content with living loved by Me alone and
giving yourself totally and unreservedly to Me.
To have an intensely personal and unique relationship with Me alone.
I love you My Child and until you discover that only in Me is your satisfaction to be found,You will not be capable of the perfect human relationship I have planned for you.
You will NEVER be united with another until you are united with me - exclusive of anyone,or anything else, including any other personal desires or longings.
I want you to stop planning, stop wishing and just allow Me to just bring it to you.
You just keep watching me, and expecting the greatest things.
Keep learning and listening to the things I tell you, you MUST wait.
Please don't be anxious and worry. Don't keep looking around you at the things you want.
Just keep looking off and away -UP to Me, or you'll miss what I have to show you.
And then when you're ready I'll surprise you - With a love far more wonderful then you would ever dream.
You see, until you are ready and until the one I have for you is ready,
I will be working every minute to see that both of you are ready at the same time.
And until you are both satisfied with Me and the life I've prepared for you,
ou won't be able to experience the love that exemplifies your relationship with me-
And this is PERFECT LOVE. And dear one, I want you to have this most wonderful love.
I want you to see in the flesh a picture of your relationship with Me,
And to enjoy materially and concretely-
The Everlasting Union of beauty and perfection and love that I offer to you with Myself.

Know that I love you. For I am the God almighty

Believe and be satisfied-

Your Heavenly Father.

Wilhelm Scream

Heard this at an easter special at hillsong.....enchanting,i think they used this song well to reflect the brokness Christ felt as He was about to be nailed to the cross as He cried out Lord if it is possible take away this cup of suffering..but Your will be done not mine.Beautiful submission, i could do with taking a leaf out of His book.

I will try and upload the video i took if i can,in the meantime............

Food for thought

Authentic Beauty

Recently i have been reading the books "Sacred Singleness" and "Authentic Beauty" by Leslie Ludy ,this is what inspired the new title for my blog.I can see how the messages in these books are quite hard to swallow as in this world we are built up to focus on self and fufilling your hearts desires ,but authentic beauty comes from sacrificing your own desires ..laying them down and building up the dreams of another.This video i found on a friend's blog sums up that message nicely .
