“Let the wise listen and add to their learning,
And let the discerning get guidance.”
Proverbs 1:5

DISTURBING DAYS
It doesn’t take a genius mind to know that we are in some terrible times here in the earth! Wars wars and more threats of wars! Economic pressures, ungodly rulers, missiles aimed and ready to blow up other countries, child abductions and murders are on the rise and we have had odd and bizarre weather patterns! And these events all can occur in just one week’s worth of change!
I hear the Holy Spirit bringing a clear word of comfort and help to His people who have ears to hear what He is saying to them. Those that are determined to follow the voice of the Good Shepherd and not strange voices.

John 10:5 
And a stranger will they not follow,
But will flee from him:
For they know not the voice of strangers.

HEARTS OF BROKENNESS
The days have seemingly turned darker, uncertain, and frenzied as media reporters shell out the hyped newscasts of doom and despair. And although much of what is being reported may be actually happening, it is intentionally ratcheted up to keep viewing polls well oiled and operating.
All of the noise pollution and the droning voices of the media personalities can weary and weigh down the heart of those who have a compassionate and sensitive spirit or heart.  And. Often through all of the pressure filled “minute by minute live” reporting, people can become restless and fearful, anxiety ridden, and heavy laden with so much hitting them.

Proverbs 12:25 
Anxiety in a man's heart weighs it down,
But a good word makes it glad.

IT IS A CRAZY WORLD WE LIVE IN AND IT’S NOT GOING TO GET EASIER AS CORRUPTION AND WICKEDNESS CONTINUE TO PLAY TOGETHER!

WHAT CAN WE DO?
Although we are not to be totally ignorant of what is occurring around us and live in recluse mentalities, the Lord does have a greater plan and focus for us during such tough times.
You and I as children of God will never really feel at home here on planet Earth. We have been Divinely implanted with a spiritual device deep in our spirits that longs for the “Home of Heaven”.
No more tears, no more night, no more longing to fully be-long! We have been walking a pathway of preparation, each of us in different stages of our lives, to transition from this decaying world and body into a heavenly place of resurrection and eternal abundant life.
It’s the living here now that is so like rough grit sandpaper to our nerve endings!

2 Timothy 4:18
The Lord will rescue me from every evil attack
And will bring me safely to his heavenly kingdom.
To him be glory for ever and ever

Psalm 61:3 
For You have been a shelter and a refuge for me,
A strong tower against the adversary.

We are in much need of a directional adjustment as believers right now, a redirecting of the compass, as the world turns itself upside down with malice, dictatorships, and political posturing. 
We need to be certain that nothing of the world and its behaviors is hidden in our own hearts. We must hear that Magnetic pulling voice of the Holy Spirit, and obey it without turning left or right.
Deuteronomy 5:32 
 So be careful to do what the LORD your God has commanded you;
Do not turn aside to the right or to the left.

The Spirit of the Lord is calling out to His people in this very very serious and crucial moment to allow Him your ears that hear and your eyes that see to discern where the compass for your soul is located! It points to a dwelling place of Divine Rest and Protection.    
There is a hidden deep place of safety only revealed to those of pure motive and clean hands.

THE LORD IS CALLING OUT TO YOU AND I
 “Come to Me! Run to Me! I know that you are heavily burdened by all of the concentrated pressures mounting around you.  Run to the Dwelling place of Divine Rest and Protection!  It will require you laying down the things that so easily set you off and get you weighed down with concern and anxiety.

1 Peter 5:7 
Casting the whole of your cares
All your anxieties,
All your worries,
All your concerns,
Once and for all on Him.
For He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.

Come to the simple place. Huddle into the shadow of My Wings for,
I AM the Refuge for the child that heeds My voice and runs to Me, abandoning self made plans for protection and self-preservation.
I AM your shield,
I AM your Fortress.
But you must come to the Refuge with no agenda in your heart or a Message on your lips. You come to the Resting Place of Safety from the Storm to WAIT, Ponder, Rest and rethink your Life call.”
Psalm 5:11
But let all who take refuge in you be glad;
Let them ever sing for joy.
Spread your protection over them,
That those who love your name may rejoice in you.

CONTINUAL SAFETY
When we walk in the way of surrender and tenderness with our ears attuned to the still small voice of God, we actually walk in the Overshadowing safety of the Presence of God.  Training our spiritual ears to hear the voice of the Father is a lifetime guarantee of knowing when the storms or troubles will arise and is a promise for direction to a place of Divine Protection and direction whenever needed.
Psalm 16:9
Therefore my heart is glad
And my tongue rejoices;
My body also will rest secure

Rest Child of God. REST!
It is the hardest thing for the mind and body to do! Learning to rest when the world is screaming at a fevered pitch, “WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO NOW” is a hard-learned yet reachable discipline if we will lean into it and ask for God’s help.
Hear the Voice of God calling you to enter into His rest. It is a place of pleasant simplicity and uncluttered doctrine. His Presence silences all of the noise of the day and noise of the Head.

HIS PRESENCE IS A REFUGE FOR THE WEARY

Dear child of God!  There is no judgment or shame there. 
It is a restful place of learning to take up an easy yoke and a light burden.

Perhaps right now…. as you listen to this audio podcast or read this, you might just sit back and “Enter in to the Refuge of God”.
Lay down the weight of worry and frustration. The anger at life all bottled up in rage and gloom!  All you need to take with you into the shelter is a willing heart. Ready to trust the Divine Protector and Provider.

Enter…
…Into His Rest.

Psalm 33:22
May your unfailing love rest upon us,
O LORD, even as we put our hope in you.

By Mary Lindow through the Holy Spirit


As the days begin to change and the seasons take their course, so am I also beginning to adjust the path you have been treading out.

“I have been keeping track of all of your sorrows,
Collecting them and all of your tears in a bottle.
I have written down your tearful sorrows…
…In My journal.”
Psalm 56:8

MANY HAVE PASSED YOU BY ON THE ROAD OF SORROW 
THAT YOU HAVE HAD TO BEAR
too busy to stop and comfort, too concerned about what others might think of your condition. Others are only focused on their own forms of grief and have yet to learn to comfort others in their weariness and tiredness.

I HAVE ENCOURAGED ALL OF YOU WHEN OTHERS ARE HAPPY, 
BE HAPPY WITH THEM!
If they are sad, share their sorrow. (Romans 12:15) Even the Samaritan, one least likely to reach out, stopped and cared for the man battered, hurt and sorrowful left on the road.

Many who claim spiritual piety and goodness, turn their heads and hearts when they see another brother or sister aching in sorrow or tragedy.

Let it not be heard about you my child in the heavenly realm, that you protected your own comforts or your own position and turned away from a brother or sister in their prolonged agony.

I HAVE BEEN TESTING THE HEARTS OF MANY WHO LAY CLAIM 
TO A WILLINGNESS TO DO ANYTHING I ASK OF THEM...
 ...But sadly then “pass on the other side" in order to avoid involvement with what "appears to be" one who is struggling or failing. As you do to others, so in your time of need will it be done to you!

I YOUR FAITHFUL REDEEMER HAVE HEARD THE HEART WRENCHING CRIES FROM YOUR PRAYERS and I am even now giving you strength and empowerment to stay firm and continue to believe that I will restore all to you that has been shattered, stolen, or shamed!

"It is God who gives us, along with you,  
the ability to stand firm for Christ has commissioned us. He anointed us!"
2 Corinthians 1:21

I HAVE ANOINTED YOU EVEN IN THIS SEASON OF SORROW!
And I will bring a fresh and pure expression of Godly living and giving into the earth through those we who see that they are being prepared as good Samaritans and who themselves are also being cared for by others who require nothing in repayment.

Many are hearing my voice calling to them to bring relief to those who have been faithful in obeying my voice, but have been persecuted heavily for doing so!

OBEY MY COMMAND QUICKLY! ACT NOW!
Bless them, help them heal, providing for them like I would! 
You will be greatly rewarded for this effort.

“As you give them even a cup of cold water in my name,  
You have done it for Me!”
Matthew 10:42

As you have been faithful to believe that I have better plans and a better way than the schemes of men, Very soon I will wipe away your bitter tears and despair.
You have begun to understand what it is to fellowship with My sufferings!
In the days ahead, you will also share in the first fruits of harvest.

"God, who has called you into fellowship
with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful."
1 Corinthians 1:9

COME JUST A LITTLE NEARER TO MY HEART NOW. 
THE NIGHT IS NEARLY OVER.

You will see that the time of sorrow and weeping will pass, and a breaking through into the greater plan for you is in motion. 
I have been into the future for I AM all that you will need.

YOUR ONE SIMPLE ACT OF OBEDIENCE SETS INTO MOTION WAVES OF MY REDEMPTIVE GRACE AND PURE HOLY CLEANSING.
The Nations are waiting for those who will only speak out of clean motives and pure hearts. I have prepared you for this time in the earth and I will fulfill all I have planned concerning you.

ENTER IN BY HUMBLING YOURSELF FURTHER
 BY DOING SIMPLE ACTS OF MERCY AND SELFLESS GIVING.

Remaining anointed…
… Even in times of sorrow.  

"Heaven is Watching You"©
Prophetic Song of the Lord

The spontaneous prophetic music and lyrics that you are about to listen to were not edited in any way and were left just as they originally were expressed.

You are hearing the prophetic words and music exactly as they were recorded and might even hear my voice falter at times because of the strong presence of God touching me as well while recording. 

Those who stood faithful in intercession while I recorded made it like heaven on earth as they bathed the studio in the beauty of prayer and in the honoring of the Presence of the Lord.

  May the Heavenly Father sing and rejoice over you as you sit back and listen!
