The Wild Garden

Dear Worshipers.....

Can you imagine stumbling upon a beautiful but wild garden.  It is not groomed professionally, but somehow the arrangement of the plants and flowers, ferns, and trees, enhance each other with the fragrance of the Creator.  Then (if you are like me) you might take notice...and just resume the journey.

This note is going out to...hopefully all who were at our gathering last week in Troutdale.....and others too. I spent several hours listening to the recording of our time together. As you know worship was unrehearsed, sometimes tentative, and yet always lovely.  Holy Spirit led us back to the theme of Abba 4 times during the meeting.  I am submitting this to you as an invitation to ask the Lord to perhaps re-visit the beauty of these moments....and stop and wonder at the beauty in the wild garden experienced in Paul’s admonition: “when you gather, each one brings....”

I would be encouraged to know you spent some time in the garden...and I’ll post this on the and you may comment.

Bless you,

You are the one we worship
to you alone we will sing

Lord ...FILL US with your joy. In  We lack  for nothing. there is fullness of joy.
Psalms 16.
7 I will praise the LORD, who counsels me;
   even at night my heart instructs me.
8 I have set the LORD always before me.
   Because he is at my right hand,
   I will not be shaken.
9 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
   my body also will rest secure,
10 because you will not abandon me to the grave, [c]
   nor will you let your Holy One [d] see decay.
11 You have made [e] known to me the path of life;
   you will fill me with joy in your presence,
   with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

We continue to pray for and contend for Delight’s healing.

We must ask the Lord for his time. God may say  do, he may say wait.

Mike Baird.
Isaiah 35.
Joy of the Redeemed
1 The desert and the parched land will be glad;
   the wilderness will rejoice and blossom.
   Like the crocus, 2 it will burst into bloom;
   it will rejoice greatly and shout for joy.
   The glory of Lebanon will be given to it,
   the splendor of Carmel and Sharon;
   they will see the glory of the LORD,
   the splendor of our God.
3 Strengthen the feeble hands,
   steady the knees that give way;
4 say to those with fearful hearts,
   "Be strong, do not fear;
   your God will come,
   he will come with vengeance;
   with divine retribution
   he will come to save you."

The wasteland will rejoice. There will be an abundance  of flowers and joy.
God of wonders beyond majesty. You are holy.
Trumpet declaration.

Proverbs 8

30 Then I was the craftsman at his side.
   I was filled with delight day after day,
   rejoicing always in his presence,
31 rejoicing in his whole world
   and delighting in mankind.

Lord dances and rejoice over us with great joy.
We are called to be your sons and daughters of the kingdom.
Prophetic Song
God of wonders God of glory the  God of healing is here.

Join us at our new location for Worship at the River (WAR) We’ve enjoyed our potluck meals over the past months. The worship, fellowship, and meals and been creative, filling, and wonderful!

The Song:

Three years ago Mikki Yamasaki gave me lyrics to a simple but profound song she wrote and I put them to music.  It is a timely encouraging promise from the Lord.  The song is attached and the lyrics follow.

No matter what you believe

I shall care for you
Now and forever more

This is my song I sing for you
I am there
I am there.

See you at the River,

Darrell and Carlene
