JOYFUL IN JESUS

JOYFUL IN JESUS
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

"You will live to bring joy to the heart of the Father."
The voice was audible ... and I looked to see whether others in the room had heard it.
No one had.
I've received revelations, discernings, and "internal" words from the Lord, as have many of you, but this was different.
This was a "once in a lifetime" monumental future forecast imposed upon my life.
This was a "calling" attached and drenched with the dew of hope, joy, and life-giving "altaration" meant to affect the way I serve, love, and offer myself to Him.
This was a solemn vow from God attached to His sacred love for me,
supplying hope to me,
urging me to see the "future tense" of calling grafted into my life for all eternity.
And it's a curious, beautiful thing to me ...
God's tender providence of words to me.
-------
Many individuals in my life have participated in stone-casting, verbal-slaying, and emotional lynching.
Some to my face and others behind my back.
And many of you have had the same experience and you know how profoundly it affects "personhood" and even faith in God.
It's to "you" I proclaim a life-giving message:
In one moment and through one empowering assertion ... God wields the power to empty man of his perceived power, and bring to nothing, the words that have been spoken wrongly, unfairly, and unjustly.
In one moment the slate of man is wiped clear and the grace of God translates a message clear and pure, which echos with hope, and which no man can take.
With an everlasting, overruling "show" of love and authority,
God the Father speaks truthfully, forcibly, and tenderly ...
And He makes good.
He will fulfill His word to you and me!

My name is Darrelyn,
  I'm an active participant and caregiver in "Redemptive Rights."
I'm helping others recover their identity in Christ, and I'm uncovering the joy that's mine because of Christ.
"I will live to bring joy to the heart of the Father."
 I hope you're in my path ...
and you feel its life-giving effects.
Joyfully living for Jesus.
I'm doing it.
Mmmm ....

"The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; He will save, He will rejoice over thee with joy. He will rest in His love; He will joy over thee with singing."
Zephaniah 3:17
