Four Years Ago…….

I was just surprised to see WordPress acknowledge my four year anniversary today. I vaguely remember when I felt A Secret Spring ‘drop into my spirit’ as I was meditating on Song of Songs. 

I knew it was the name of my blog and the conception of something new for me. However, I could have never known the adventure that awaited me over the past 4 years and that I wouldn’t actually begin blogging until September 7, 2019.

The Lord knew. I had NO idea.

It was better that way, because I wouldn’t have wanted to know of the hardships that were coming. 

I dealt with my crash/burnout when it came and my long 26 month recovery to regain healthy functioning. 

I took one day at a time and sometimes only one minute at a time to get through. The Lord Jesus was faithful and continues to be faithful in my healing journey.

During my break from blogging the past few months, the Lord has been showing me some exciting things that I am currently working on and towards. It is exciting to be healthy enough to dream again and pursue my passions. I continue to discover, in more detail, what He put me on this planet to do.

I look forward to sharing it with you all as soon as possible. I’m guessing it could be as early as the end of September or the beginning of October.  

I’ve learned to follow His leading and wait on His timing. Life works best this way! 😉

Thank you to everyone who takes the time to read my posts and support me on my journey. I really appreciate you!

Love and blessings to you and your family!

The Song That Became My Lifeline

On Sunday, February 11, 2018, I wasn’t feeling very well emotionally and it became very clear that something was seriously wrong. My husband and I were scared, so I asked him to put on the Sunday evening service at Bethel Church that was just beginning.

I let the music wash over me in an attempt to calm my fear. The worship leader, Jonathan Helser, announced they had a new song to share that they had just finished writing. I listened to the story and the words and they touched me deeply. I didn’t understand why, but I knew this was MY song and that God was speaking to me.

“When the pressure is real, Your Presence is greater, greater, greater.”

That phrase was planted deep within me and would become a lifeline as I walked through the horror of those initial months. I reminded myself over and over that His Presence was greater than what I was facing no matter how great the pain and suffering.

“When the pressure is real, Your Presence is greater, greater, greater.”

The suffering and pressure I encountered was VERY REAL, yet I had to believe that His Presence was GREATER and would overcome any diagnosis, no matter how severe.

Then as the song was ending, Jonathan said the following:

“This is holy ground. This is holy ground. Just declare it over your life. It’s holy ground. Declare it over your trials. Declare it over your circumstance. It’s holy ground. What the enemy meant for evil the Goodness has overcome.”

AMEN! The blood of Jesus has overcome any evil facing you or your family and you will watch the victory unfold in His way and timing.

The link below should take you to the complete Sunday evening worship set. It will start with an ad and you can place your cursor on the white dot and slide to minute 56 where “Fourth Man” begins. You many also have to turn on the sound by clicking on the “speaker” icon if there is an “X” by it and the sound will turn on. I hope it works, because as far as I know, this song hasn’t been released yet and this is the only place to find it. 🙂

Click to watch “Fourth Man” performed at 56:00-1:07:00

Have a blessed weekend and receive all He has for you!
