Never Alone Martin

NEVER ALONE
JOHN 16:32
This carrier has come forth as a special request. A ministry that aides abused woman & children placed the order. Some time after arriving home from the conference we met at....the Lord began speaking about this carrier....little did I know He was going to draw upon the deeply rooted pain & rejection from a very abusive background in my own life. Having brought home a dvd from the conference, there was a song/ministry time on it in which they sang/talked about Martin Luther: about how Martin had just gotten an anonymous phone call threatening his life and the life of his family, if he kept preaching the word of God.
How Martin began speaking to the Lord and saying, in all the time I've preached your kingdom Lord, I've never heard your voice and I need to hear it Lord......as Martin began confessing sins before God at the kitchen table..... suddenly God spoke to him.......clearly.........and this is what He said (which the band began to sing over the body of Christ......... NEVER ALONE MARTIN
NEVER ALONE MARTIN
I NEVER LEAVE YOU
I NEVER LEAVE YOU
NEVER ALONE MARTIN
NEVER ALONE MARTIN
YOUR NOT ALONE
YOUR NOT ALONE
I NEVER LEAVE YOU
I NEVER LEAVE YOU
ALONE
It turned into a long song of ministry time in which found me bawling on the floor in someone's arms.......then coming home and hearing it over again
........ God spoke about this carrier for His abused ones..........
HE BEGAN WITH GIVING ME THE LAVENDER BASE FOR THE CARRIER. LAVENDER SPEAKS OF 'LIBERAL GIVING/OVER ABUNDANT', WHICH IS THE LOVING KINDNESS HE HAS FOR US AND EVEN MORE SO THOSE IN LOWLY PLACES.
HE DID NOT GIVE ME BEAD-WORK FOR THIS CARRIER, BUT SIMPLY STATED HE WANTED IT TO REFLECT HOW HE TAKES TORN LIVES AND MAKES THEM INTO SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL....SO THE STRIPS OF SILK FABRIC WERE SLICED.......MANY DIFFERENT KINDS........FOR THE MANY DIFFERENT PEOPLES AND FORMS OF ABUSE.
HE TOLD ME TO PLACE HIM RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF IT....."HE"............BEING THE HUGE SWAROVSKI BAROQUE YOU SEE IN THE CENTER.
HE TOLD ME THAT HE WAS WITH ME ALL THE TIME....AND I KNOW HE WAS.........BECAUSE 1 TIME WHEN MY EX HUSBAND WAS BEARING DOWN ON ME.......I WAS CROUCHED NEXT TO A BUSH PRAYING HE WOULDN'T HIT ME AGAIN AND WHISPERED THE WORD "JESUS"....................SUDDENLY, THE STEAM WENT OUT OF HIM AND HE WITHDREW.
MANY TIMES OVER I WOULD WHISPER THAT NAME..SOMETIMES YELL IT OUT.......TO GET BELTED ON LAST FINAL BLOW......BUT THEN HE WOULD WITHDRAW.
THERE IS PRECIOUS POWER IN THE NAME OF JESUS................AND HE IS ALWAYS IN THE MIDST OF US...........EVEN IN THE DARKEST NIGHT.........WE ARE NEVER ALONE.
HE TOLD ME TO PUT SOMETHING 'FANCY' UNDER THE STRIPS OF FABRIC, BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH THE PEOPLE ARE TORN AND RAVAGED, HE FINDS BEAUTY IN THEM..SO THERE IS THE LACEY STUFF UNDER THERE.
HE PLACED THE FLOWER ABOVE IT ALL IN SEQUINS, BECAUSE HE TAKES THE WORST OF SITUATIONS WHEN WE TURN TO HIM AND MAKES A GARDEN OUT OF THEM.
THERE ARE 3 HAND SEWN BEADS ABOVE THAT FLOWER FOR THE FATHER, SON AND HOLY SPIRIT.
THE PINK REPRESENTS HIS UNDYING LOVE.
ON THE BACK IS A GARDEN THAT HOLDS A SILVER TREE OF 9 TINY STONES, WHICH REPRESENT THE 9 GIFTS - 9 FRUITS OF THE SPIRIT
GOD DESIRES TO REGENERATE THOSE THINGS THAT HAVE BECOME DISTORTED THROUGH LIFE'S TRIALS & TRIBULATIONS. THERE IS A SILVER BAND OF REDEMPTION OVER A GREEN BAND OF GRASS AND GOLD REPRESENTING THE FATHERS 'BACKYARD'.
INSIDE, HE ASKED ME TO MAKE VERY 'COMFY'..SO THE DEEP BLUE VELVETEEN WAS CHOSEN AND OF COURSE A ZIPPER, TO KEEP OUT STRANGERS:)
BLUE IS FOR HIS FAITHFULNESS...........HE IS FAITHFUL & TRUE. LASTLY AND MOST UNEXPECTEDLY..........FOR QUITE SOME TIME COULD NOT FIGURE OUT THE NECK CHAIN...........AND FINALLY HE GAVE IT TO ME WHEN LEAST THINKING ABOUT IT..........
WHILE REPAIRING AN OLD RAG - RUG.........HAD TO CUT SOME OF IT OFF AND WAS GOING TO TOSS IT, BUT SOMETHING SAID....'KEEP IT'.........
THE NEXT DAY..........WHEN VACUUMING, PICKED IT UP & BEGAN PLAYING AROUND WITH IT.......AND HE SAID...........TAKE 3 STRANDS................BECAUSE A 3 CORD STRAND IS NOT EASILY BROKEN ....BRAID THEM AND USE THAT FOR THE NECK - CHAIN. " I WANT YOU TO USE THAT, HE SAID, BECAUSE THESE WOMEN/PEOPLE HAVE BEEN TRAMPLED UPON...WALKED ALL OVER..........AND NOW.....I WILL WHERE THEM AS A GARLAND ON MY NECK."
THAT'S WHAT HE TOLD ME..................
AND NOW I TELL YOU


Lord bless all those who are forgotten in the noise & din of life........let them know Lord...........they are never alone.
