Grateful Lists – January till Yehovah’s New Year… or thereabout. :)


My grateful lists… unedited, and directly from my FB status’… there are a lot of gaps. I’ve either been living in the midst of grateful, or working thru some hard things on the days that got skipped…

Jan 1
Morning down time, Afternoon at Grandma’s, simple good food – I’ll gladly eat blackeyed peas, cornbread, greens, salad and mashed potatoes any day of the year! Reports of answered prayers and Yehovah’s moving, Art with my niece, glow stick tag with everyone (5 children, 1 teen, 5 adults) in the dark, sharing and conversation with family till late at night, knowing that the changes coming to all of our lives as our time in this little mountain town (my childhood hometown) is winding down, are good, even if hard – that YHVH will lead us well, my boys handled a late night visit very well – with no tears, Baths and time to unwind, Yehovah’s love and arms to rest in as I sleep.
My grateful list for Jan 1, and yours??

Jan 2

Sleeping in, prayers with boys, foes vanquished, Oil changed in one car, the other, My tinker toy out of the shop, with heat! Quiet alone time for each of us till lunchtime to reset from several weeks of going, going and lots of people. Sharing with friends, Bathroom cabinet sorted and cleaned, short naps, items for an organized bathroom and travel procured, supper by Grandpa and spending time talking with him (my dad), blog post finished (to be posted soon),
An EXCELLENT teaching on the Bride of Messiah… “Let Him kiss me with the kisses of His mouth”!! (and all it means in the Hebrew). The bride as ezer, encircles 7 times, as He leads … confirmation. Yep, definitely hearing this one by the Spirit. 😀
Sleep that is coming (I think 😉 )
That Yeshua is my True Husband, that I can safely rest in Him, that the wonder He brings to my life doesn’t end, and that His plans for me are good and perfect!

Jan 3

A new day, Seeing the road ahead, Shalom that worship in song brings, Little ones righted, first day back to partial school successful, Yehovah’s shalom, following in Obedience and knowing I can trust Him, every step forward, that I was heard well, and YHVH’s hand in another’s life can be trusted; confirmations in big and little ways, on more than one subject, in one evening, How YHVH is moving in the lives of others,
Long baths, good music, excellent teachings.
Yehovah’s love and incredible sovereignty in all things which can be trusted.
Shalom & rest that is coming momentarily.
That His mercies are new every morning, and that includes when my alarm goes off tomorrow. 🙂

Jan 4
His mercies are new every morning, watching the light slowly creep across frosty landscape, conditioning workout to get me in shape, morning with my boys, naps, enough school done that we are ready for a new week, sharing life, a quiet Sabbath (it’s been 5 weeks since my last Sabbath alone with Him), muscles that I forgot exist which will NOT let me forget right now 🙂 , sleep to follow shortly (and before midnite).
Yeshua’s incredible love, calling to us to be His Bride, to truly enter intimate relationship with Him thru the Spirit. Breathtaking!

Jan 5
Little boy’s desire to be with Momma in the early morning (I’d really rather he had been asleep, but I’m still thankful for these precious years of wanting Mom around :D), Sunrise on the Sabbath, A day of rest, Epsom Salts and a big bathtub, Naps, Conversation on long walks in the waning light, Food I didn’t prepare – steak as tender as my cheese sticks! Worship and excellent teaching. So timely, and confirming on many fronts. One such front is getting to wrestle with knowing His voice of when to speak the Truth within vs when to follow Amos 5:13. 🙂 Stretching – both spiritually, and physically.
That when I chose to trust YHVH’s sovereignty with the most intimate of relationships, that trust carries over into all other relationships and situations, so that I can truly delight in and trust the Sovereignty of YHVH in all things.
Yeshua’s love and willingness to bring us as His Bride, into the Holy of Holies, into the most intimate of relationships with Him, as we walk in obedience and surrender to His Covenant with us. ♥

Goodnight world…
I’ve a hot date with my Heavenly Husband & Messiah in the early hours. He’s pushing me in beautiful ways but hard ways (he’s like that, loves that iron sharpening iron stuff. 🙂 What is more important to me – slumber or time with Him? interaction with others in person or online, or entering into His presence and abiding there for a season? Which comes first? Will I agree with the spirits set against me, or kick them to the curb and rejoice in His Loving Embrace??
He will give me strength for the walk-out of obedience to His calling & instructions(torah) for me personally, for He is good, and His mercies are new every morning!!

and that’s my grateful list for the evening too. 🙂 What are you grateful for??

Jan 27 – not really a proper grateful list, but something I’m grateful for…

Having skimmed thru journals from childhood to current today, I’m struck by the shift that occurred in my spirit as I read Journey of Desire, back in 2002. Up to that point, nothing healed, or changed me quite as profoundly. Thank you John Eldredge and Ransomed Heart Ministries!!
Since then, I’ve been on an incredible journey. Thank you, Yehovah!!

In thinking about it further – that shift, and the reading of Desire also coincided with an intentional move from chaos to more simple – the the 8 laws of health – making sure that there was good Nutrition, Exercise, adequate Water, daily Sunshine, Temperance in all things, fresh Air, adequate and complete Rest, and Trust in God – time spent with Him – in my Daily life. Looking back over the last 10 years – I gotta say, that was a good choice  So glad to still be on the journey, and to be able to look back and see the change in my spirit thru my writing.

Being willing to wrestle and hold loosely; that with YHVH I can face Fear squarely and not run, or compromise. That YHVH is healing me as I continue to Walk Out His way. The Grace of fellowship and Yeshua’s Love in the midst of seeing things differently.
Answered prayers. Catching up with friends. A straightened house, and a clean back porch. Direction for my weekend. Myrrh and Epsom Salts. Unending Hot water. Candle light and Shalom.
Sleep that is coming in Yeshua’s arms.
That I can walk in patience and total trusting, knowing that Yehovah is Good, and Has Good for me and mine. Shabbat Shalom!!

A few of the things I’m grateful for this week. What are you grateful for??

April 5

Wow… Two weeks that I’ve been living in the midst of grateful, and not writing it down… Some highlights:
A young friend who became a brother in the Messiah
Late night talks with His dear Momma
Days to prepare for Passover
A Beautiful Passover celebration – Music, Food, Yeshua’s Life and death, Scripture, Dance, The beauty of knowing another even when the language He spoke & sang was not our own, slow meals, and celebration
High Shabbat of Unleavened Bread – a slow day with my boys, perfecting my aim, Sunshine and flowers from my little guy
Preparing for friends to arrive.
That they arrived just before Shabbat did, and oh what a beautiful weekend! Yummy Food, Delightful Fellowship, Fresh Air, Beautiful spring Flowers, Fire and Rain, Long talks, Ministry, a touch of sleep, A slow Feast of First Fruits (bikkurim) morning, Celebrating His Resurrection, Waving “first fruits” and the Shofar echoes, Long afternoons of rest and slow walks, Help in the morning with cleaning, lots and lots of hugs from big and little…
A slow week to be had… sometimes even a tummy bug is a bit of a blessing in disguise.
Long talks and being heard. That Yeshua has us all in the midst, and that the work He started will be completed, even if it looks far different from what we might have imagined.
Time Will Tell!! Remembering, on the Last High Shabbat, the Exodus adventure on dry ground thru the Red Sea.
A little school done
Rest, sunshine
Prayers with friends, for friends. Sharing life with others, what pure gift!
Shabbat is Here Again!!!
Yehovah’s love, that He is faithful to refine us, that we can trust His fire, That we can face all He has for us to face. That He is gentle, and loving and Beautiful!!!

About Beloved of YHWH

I am the “Head of Domestic Affairs” here on the mountain top. What that means is, I’m a stay-at home mom of 2 Boys, Small business owner, gardener, homemaker, blogger, planner, mediator, nurse, and so much more. My life took an unexpected and painful turn a couple of years ago, which is how I came to name my blog Shakam Boqer, but YHVH has been incredibly faithful to me, the boys and I are healing, and I am full of hope. I’m a follower of Yeshua, and my faith is an integral part of my life. Part of how He created me to reflect Him is to be a teller of the Story. I share my story, not as an exhibitionist, not for the attention it might receive, not for accolades or recognition, but, for His Glory – so that others, as they read, as they see how YHVH has led and loved me over the course of time, can be edified, lifted up, encouraged to Look to HIM, to Trust Him, to pursue Holy Wholeness with every fiber of their beings. Within this blog, I want community and conversation and interaction. I want to offer hope, and joy, and also thought provoking bits that make one look deeper into the heart of Elohim. This is my place to share my thoughts, wrestlings and just daily life. Please, please feel free to comment, discuss and even dissect & respectfully disagree. Be sure you check out Welcome & Disclaimers to get a general idea of the Blog, and what I am about: Feel free to contact me directly at: abigailmistyd at gmail dot com. Some blogs are password protected as I don't want pictures of my children pulled from my blog in a "image search" and posted elsewhere on the web. If I know you in person, or we have interacted online, and you'd like to read them, shoot me a note, tell me how I know you, and ask for the password. :)
