Embark on a Journey...

That intimate "you and Him" time? Not just the basic devotional readings or corporate worship and prayer gatherings. I mean that "place" or room or location to go where you can wrestle, cry, wait, and listen. To rest in the arms of Peace.

Do You Crave The Secret Rest Of God?

Mary Lindow - Apr 16, 2007

I have an unusual stirring in my spirit from the Holy Spirit as I write this message. The Lord is revealing a sound in the earth coming from the hearts and deep cries of so many of His people right now. Perhaps it might even be you as you read. There is a cry of hunger for His sure, safe presence in difficult times and in changing times.

A Craving for Deep Rest

The world and it's voices of influence, humanistic subtleties, and constant technology and it's sounds, bring about an overload of weariness to all people, and there is a greater need for a place of rest for the warriors of truth who are very aware of the pressures that have not stopped mounting for many years now.

Do You Crave the Secret Rest of God?

That intimate "you and Him" time? Not just the basic devotional readings or corporate worship and prayer gatherings. I mean that "place" or room or location to go where you can wrestle, cry, wait, and listen. To rest in the arms of Peace.

It is a good thing to crave the company of the Lord!
Look at what the word craving means!

1: to ask for earnestly
2 a: to want greatly
2b: to yearn
3: an intense, urgent, or peculiar desire or longing

Thesaurus Definitions

There is much treachery occurring in the evil plans of darkness and the people held captive by it these days!
It can bring a real sense of despair, broken heartedness, and shock when you encounter this type of thing and when it attempts to destroy your hope and confidence in what the Lord Jesus has set you apart for to express in His Power and in His name.

Delays Delays Delays!

I don't know fully why it seems as if good people who are sincere and pure hearted seem to go through more persecution and repeated difficulty than those who seem to be the ones perpetuating the majority of it!!

So many right now are nearly at their wits end waiting for God to relieve them of sorrow, disillusionment and battle fatigue!

My soul faints with longing for your rescue, but I have put my hope in your word. Psalm 119:81

Courage from the Encourager

"You hear, O LORD, the desire of the afflicted; you encourage them, and you listen to their cry" Psalm 10:17

What is this verse saying to you and I right now? It is saying that the Lord HIMSELF will encourage us! That is why we must continue to fight for that place of Divine "sanctuary!" That "get away from it all" place of craving and longing for His comfort. He knows our hurt, our loneliness, our scorched and heart torn issues! He understand how agonizing and bled out we can get when it seems as if battle after battle we begin to wonder if something might be wrong with us!

Hope delayed makes the heart sick, but when dreams come true, there is life and joy. Proverbs 13:12 (NAT)

Nothing Can Satisfy Dry Lips Like Water!

We are in a time where no persons opinions, no one's books no one's pod casts are going to satisfy that craving, that need for a thirst quenching drink of companionship with God.

We long to hear words from someone that tell us everything is going to be all right! That our children will be safe, our homes protected, our basic needs provided! And yet! Nothing "out there" satisfies us fully!

You see Dear Beloved one…
The season of great hunger for the simple walk with Jesus... has blossomed!

Only time spent with him like a dear dear friend will fill the gaping ache you have. He will speak, He will comfort, and He will show you what is true and what is false in the days ahead if you will return to that Place of companionship with Him. Away from the opinions of men and the noise of this life.

"Every word you give me is a miracle word - how could I help but obey? Break open your words, let the light shine out, let ordinary people see the meaning. Mouth open and panting, I wanted your commands more than anything. Turn my way, look kindly on me, as you always do to those who personally love you." Psalm 119:129-131 (The Message)

A Prophetic Whisper To Your Heart From The Savior

"To know of My ways, you must know ME! To Know Me, you must spend time with ME. To spend time with Me, you must purpose, to put aside the lists of things you have to do, before you can spend time with Me."

"Order your days first in My Presence, and watch the desires of your heart be fulfilled. Man and his counsel will always fall short of the full truth of My Wisdom. I have blueprints and a Master plan for so many things yet to build upon in your life."

"Come. Let us walk again together."

"You are the temple, the house of My Holy Spirit. I desire to build you up in spiritual strength as you walk in prayer and conversations WITH ME, not TO Me!"

"I will fulfill your longing for peace and direction as you step up again into a heavenly trust and rest."

"People will change, man will fail you, friends will turn, if they are not seeking My Voice about the clamor of the day. And you My child will fail others, if you listen to your own voice of reason and intelligence. As you turn to Me, you will see My compassion poured out upon you and you will then have My power of pure godly compassion and Wisdom driven grace to pour out on others."

"I too, long for you as well! Seek Me-with all of your heart, your longings, your heartaches, your dreams. And I will be there with arms of strength to rescue you from Despair."

You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13

The LORD is good to those, whose hope is in Him, to the one who seeks Him. Lamentations 3:25

Deep Calls to Deep


"I have fallen in love with your music and your heart from which it comes... I feel that I have been behind the veil and entered into the throne room to sit in our Father's lap. Thank you."

– Barbara Farese, NJ, USA

"This worship music is so refreshing and so passionately intimate. It is deep calling to deep.  It's my Daddy holding me.  It's sweet secrets being whispered in the stillness.  It's my heart melting in His presence."

– Mindy, OH, USA

"Your music is truly unique.  Some of the songs have such a quality of childlike purity and innocent devotion while others stir the deepest longings of our soul for more of Him"

– Shirley Chan
