"Yet a time is coming
and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23

My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.

Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.

Daddy let me be secure in You only!

SNIPPETS

For close to a month now, I have been having a lot of what I call "snippets" throughout the day. Or flashbacks. Lasting no more than a few seconds.

I am astonished with how quick the flash is. Thus the name 'snippet."

These are memories, that I have never recalled until the snippet. Like today, having a snippet of reading my father's pilot instructional manual in our living room. Picturing the manual itself, how heavy it was, the table it was on, etc. Which then went from a snippet to recalling that my father took flying lessons when I was around 11. Both my brother and I went up in a four-seater Cessna on his first lesson with the instructor back in 1968.

Some of these snippets are bizarre. Nothing really bad. But, stuff I have never thought about until now. To me they feel insignificant. Cannot understand the reasoning behind them.

These snippets are coming more frequently now.

Whether this has anything to do with my wilderness venture, or a new avenue the Lord wants me to experience, I do not know any of the significance of these snippets. At times it feels like a pressure or tension as with a rubber band has been released from my brain.

Whatever is going on, I am just going with the flow of the Holy Spirit.....

  1. It sounds like another great step in the healing process. Maybe you are more open and able to handle these memories now as God helps you. I think it is also a precious gift to be able to remember some good memories. I remember reading once, and I have no idea where, about the author asking God to give her one good memory from her past. I think it is cool to have good snippets too. Remember, when a rubber band is stretched it has the capability to soar! Yeah! Looking forward to seeing how far you fly!! Many blessings friend!

  2. JBR I like what BelovedBomber said with being stretched. New limits for you? But before that can happen, other things still have to fall into place. God Bless.

  3. Dear JBR, I have missed you and continue to pray for you! I find what you write today very interesting and hope that you are at peace with these memories as you experience them. God bless.

  4. It's interesting that you say it feels like pressure or tension has been released from your brain after these snippets. Maybe He is removing the sting (or buttons is a better word) that associates certain objects with particular people so that there will be less pain in your life in general. Connecting them with pleasurable things instead. Like your love for planes.

    I don't know, but as God purifies our hearts and minds strange things pour out. Let them pour :)

  5. I don't know why these memories are coming back to you, JBR, but I think just going with them is the right choice. There must be a reason for these pieces to be reappearing to you.

  6. No clue why you're having the memories, but going with the flow sounds like a great idea. Many many hugs to you, my friend! xx

  7. Hi JBR,

    Wherever the Lord is leading you, do not be afraid; you can always trust Him. If the snippets are bringing you peace & healing, then they are from Him and not the enemy.

    "For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.Jeremiah 29:11.

    ~God Bless~

  8. They are appearing now likely because you are safe to hold them now. I remember someone saying that a bit back, that once you receive them, it means you're ready for them ... perhaps this is the case for you. Go with it, you have all you need in order to deal with them.
