Downloads from God


I AM the LORD your GOD, singing over you, twirling over you, rejoicing over you, for you are a lily among thorns, My darling among maidens. The great, looming enemy of Performance has been slain, simply because you threw the stone that I provided. You trembled in the interval between the throwing of the stone and the felling of the boisterous, bellowing giant. Of course you shook -- the interval was long, and waves of booming, berating, cruel threats kept washing over you like a violent storm containing thunder and lighting strikes. But look at it now. My daughter: no more dangerous pull, the undertow is gone. The enemy lies defeated, down on the ground, flat on its back. . You stand here singing, “It’s the LORD, look what the LORD has done!” Your amazement and gratitude blesses Me.
