I heard the Lord say: Morning has Broken and MOURNING has Broken

A Hymn written in 1931 in many hymnals and sung popularly by Cat Stevens is Morning Has Broken.  You will recognize the lyrics.

Morning Has Broken
Morning has broken, like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning
Praise for them springing fresh from the Word.
Sweet the rain’s new fall, sunlit from heaven
Like the first dewfall, on the first grass
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness where His feet pass.
Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning
Born of the one light, Eden saw play
Praise with elation, praise every morning
God’s recreation of the new day

I don't ever think of this song.. yet when I was in my quiet time it came to me.  It has seemed like there is only darkness, evil and horror as we look around the world and even in the USA.  The news seems to get worse and worse and evil seems to be winning.

Yet, the Lord says, "I have overcome all the world, not just portions you deem as good, all of it.  I am the victor and when you enter into what I am doing you are too.  Watch as I bring recreation of the day you live in.  I will do things in the earth that you didn't think were possible.  I will turn it ALL around.  Look for the dawn, look to the light, I am the Light of the World and so should you be.  Stop mourning, I am doing a new thing, don't mourn for the old, it is passing away.  Look up.. your redemption is here."

I really love it when He gently speaks to us in the storm and says STOP the fear, have FAITH in ME. 

I was not only encouraged, but joy came as He  spoke this to me.. and I hope for you too.

This perhaps may have been for me. I remember being sent out amongst churches.
Poor health
Poverty stricken and yet trying to be obedient.
Some reason pastors would want appointments to see me after speaking with me a few times. God would bring correction to their doctrine, a Word to help them grow into their destiny, or reveal the Liberty of His Spirit is lacking. Showing me occult infiltrations , Prayers wielded as witchcraft in His sons name to get their own carnal desires and general correction one to a minister in my family who coveted ministry. Some discerned the office of prophet some did not. I learned much it cost everything and was a brutal breaking of my emotions to be obedient. At times I failed yet somehow by divine design another would request an appointment. More than one I was aware God was present and listening as they spoke in unbelief and rebelled against His Spirit. I was broken time and time again until one day in the midst of tears. I looked up and said God your ministers hate prophets. Why do you send me to these some local some national some international. I heard a booming voice of the Lord and their was displeasure in it. It said this Do you think anything is spoken that I do not hear.! Do you think anything goes on that I do not see (louder) I SEE ALL I HEAR ALL . At a point everywhere I went I heard songs and sermons on isiah six. I was led to read Ezekiel 3 and Ezekiel 2 time and time again. My light is growing dim yet I have the training to know God always sent a message to those who deny His Spirits flow. They distorted the Word for their carnal mind. Picking and choosing the Fathers will divine. All the while He sent them messengers never discerned until their conscience was seared and judgment began to burn. A recording for the day they would soon draw near.
I am an unspoken prayer request. Please pray for me. I am in great need.

Amen! I have been saying that God is not going to let this world fail for a very long time, because I have Faith. Thanks Gene for reminding us in such a wonderful way and always listening to God. It is a new day, a new dawn, and great things are just around the horizon.
