There’s A Place For You Here + “Holy Kisses” Mug Giveaway

(Ephesians 2:6 TPT- He raised us up with Christ The Exalted One, and we ascended with Him into the glorious perfection and authority of the heavenly realm, for we are now co-seated as one with Christ!)

Back in February, I went to two different conferences that greatly impacted and empowered my life: “Fire 18” in Jacksonville, FL and “Glory Nights” in New Orleans, LA.

To be completely honest with you, I’m still processing and reflecting upon the experiences and encounters that I had at both, but I’ve felt that Holy Spirit is leading me to share this one experience with you guys that happened on one of the nights of “Glory Nights New Orleans”. With that being said, I’m going to attempt to describe what was happening during worship that night just to try to paint a picture for you of what the atmosphere in the room was like.

There was a room full of beautiful-hearted people that genuinely love Jesus and we were all just singing and worshiping The Lord.

So, right from the very beginning, The Presence of God was already permeating and starting to completely saturate the entire room.

If you were to take a quick glance around the room you would see people lying on the floor, sitting, standing, and just in their own sacred space with The Lord. Everyone on my row happened to be standing as they were worshiping including me and I heard The Lord say, “Sit on the floor with Me.” There really wasn’t much room to sit unless you had already moved to the one of the aisles or to the front or the back of the room prior to worship starting. So, I just quietly sat down Indian-style on the floor in front of my seat with my hands and heart open and ready to receive.

As soon as I closed my eyes, I saw The Lord sitting in this beautiful, antique chair. I wouldn’t quite call in a throne. To be honest, it reminded of this chair that my Grandpa would always sit in when I was a child— the same chair that I would always climb up into my Grandpa’s lap to watch TV (mainly sports), eat snacks, and drink sweet tea. 🙂

What I’m saying is, this picture that I was seeing of The Lord sitting in that chair as I’m sitting on the floor with my eyes closed felt and seemed incredibly familiar to me. It had a very nostalgic feel to it in the sense that what I was seeing in the spirit had begun to evoke real emotion from me in the natural.

I began to weep and I felt this love that I don’t even have the words to accurately describe to you and then I started to remember all these very precious moments that I had growing up with my Dad and my Grandpa both whom I was incredibly close to, but have gone on to be with The Lord.

But when the memories started to drift from my focus and I began to laser in on The Lord sitting in that chair again, I saw that He was smiling and He was patting His right leg as a parent or grandparent would do when they’re letting a child know that it’s ok for that child to climb up into their laps to sit down. And The Lord was saying over and over again, “There’s a place for you here.”

Today’s focal verse says, He raised us up with Christ The Exalted One, and we ascended with Him into the glorious perfection and authority of the heavenly realm, for we are now co-seated as one with Christ! 

For we are co-seated as one with Christ! I’ve been sitting here mulling over how beautiful and incredibly powerful that is.

I share all of this with you guys for three reasons:

  1. I wanted you to be able to see how The Lord will take you on this sweet, intimate journey with Him and bring up memories that are precious to you just to show you the depths of His heart for you and how He intimately knows you.
  2. I wanted you to understand how those memories can be directly related to the relationship that He’s trying to either establish or richly deepen with you.
  3. I don’t believe that this experience was just for me. I believe that it is for the body of Christ as a whole. And so, I felt that you should know or be reminded of the fact that, you have an ever-extended invitation from The Creator of the universe Himself also known as our Abba Father to climb up into His lap, rest your head upon His heart, and be one with Him.

As we reflect upon today’s focal verse, my prayer for us is that that we would take it to heart, cling to and rest in it’s truth, and then view and live our lives through the lens of the promises within that truth.

The Lord, Himself is calling us unto Him. So, as He beckons you into His lap, simply sit, smile, rest, and receive from Him remembering that there is always a place for you there. 🙂

Happy Soul Kissed Thursday! Sending you all heavenly hugs and holy kisses! I love you guys!

      • Hi, Neley!

        Abide will be held on June 29-30 at a church called The Well in Gasden, AL. It will be a much smaller conference than Jesus 18, but still incredibly powerful! The leadership there is phenomenal!

  4. I am trusting in God for total provision to go to Jesus18. So if anyone feels led by the Lord please help! I am also not going to wait until then to place my total faith, love and everything I got in him until the actual conference date. I will do it now!! I can’t wait until I come back to first love with him!😍

  12. I had a chair I sat in and read it was wide, red and gold. I called it God’s chair. My mother donated it but somebody is blessed, I know exactly what it is like to sit with Him. Visiting from Faith on Fire.

    • God’s chair—- I absolutely LOVE that! There’s nothing more soothing, yet empowering than sitting with Him.

      Thank you so much for stopping by, Rebecca! I pray that you were blessed here.

      Hugs and blessings! 🙂

  13. What a beautiful experience, Tai! We visited a church today where I really felt the Lord’s presence and it was a sweet time. Thanks for sharing with us at the #LMMLinkup! Blessings to you, dear sister!

    • You are most welcome, Gayl! So glad that you were able to feel and enjoy The Lord’s Presence today. I just love those special moments with Him. 🙂

      Thank you so much for sharing and thank you so much for dropping by to visit with me today! Hugs and blessings, Beautiful! 🙂

  14. So enjoyed seeing your visit at Sunday Scripture Blessings so I could come and visit. What a gift to read of your experience. We never know when God will ask that we sit on the floor or kneel or whatever. There are times that I’ve had the extreme feeling of kneel instead of just sit and pray. God is awesome when he wants to wash his Love over us. It is always there, but the times like your experience are such a gift. Thanks for sharing.

    • Peabea, you are most welcome! It was such a joy to visit and link-up with you today. And I’m so happy to hear that you were blessed by what I shared. It truly blesses me to know that. And isn’t The Lord just good like that? Who are we that He would love us so unconditionally well? 🙂

      Thank you so much for visiting with me today! Hugs and blessings! 🙂

  15. I agree, the Lord is our Abba Father, loving us, constantly inviting us to sit with Him and be comforted, be taught and be loved. An overwhelming blessing indeed!

    • Yes, it is! Don’t you just love those sweet moments with Him? 🙂

      Thank you so much for visiting with me today! I pray that you were blessed here! Hugs and blessings! 🙂

    • Meg, I feel the same way! He’s SO good to us!

      Thank you so much for stopping by to visit with me! I pray that you were blessed here!

      Hugs and blessings! 🙂

  16. So beautiful, Tai. I love it how the Lord retrieves and then weaves memories into something even more beautiful to bless us. Your vision reminds me so much of a vision I had as I listened to a Bible story that was told for the Velvet Ashes retreat, where we were asked to visualize ourselves with Jesus there as part of the story.

    I was so overcome by what I felt and heard Jesus communicate – both with His Words and the warmth of His countenance.

    He took me back to a moment I had witnessed to the truth but was overcome by massive attack in its wake. I heard Him say to me: “Anna, I know just how hard it all was for you. I am not aloof to the fear and pain inflicted. And I know how afraid you are to follow me out again, as the winds and waves lash.

    “You remember your failure and your weakness with shame. But now remember the truth. Remember how I held you fast in the storm. See Me weeping for you and Me holding you. I won’t let you go, as you step out to do my will again. I’ll hold you fast again.”

    • Oh Anna, this is SO beautiful! I just love how The Lord always goes the extra mile to extravagantly bless us and shower His love upon us.

      Thank you so much for sharing your experience with me. I am blessed by it. And thank you so much for visiting with me today! Hugs and blessings, beautiful friend! 🙂

    • Awww! Lori, I have missed you too, sweet friend! So happy to hear that you were blessed here! It so blesses me to know that.

      Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving such sweet encouragement! I appreciate you. Hugs and blessings, Beautiful! 🙂

  17. Tai, this is such a sweet and intimate experience with the Lord, thank you for sharing your heart – and in so doing, sharing His Father heart. You have such a deep desire to know Him, and it shows through your writing.
    Blessings to you!

    • Awww! You are most welcome, Cindy! I truly appreciate your kind words and encouragement. Thank you so much for visiting with me today! Hugs and blessings! 🙂

  18. Loved it sis! and it opened up a whole new revelation on we are sitted in high places! Ohhhhh! my heart melted at the thought of sitting in the Father’s lap!!!!😍😍❤❤

  19. Tia! What a great post and I loved the picture God gave you! Climbing up into Papa God’s lap is so soothing and comforting! It sounds like both conferences made a huge impact on you and that God has just begun to move you into the deeper revelations He has for you.

      Awww! Thank you so much for stopping by and bringing such sweet encouragement with you! I really appreciate it. The Lord has truly been moving in my life and He never ceases to amaze me!

      The Lord showed me the design that you see on that mug in a dream.
