About Karen Lemburg

Hi I'm Karen, wife, mother and grandmother. I am on the journey of a more intimate relationship with God. I'm blessed to married to a wonderful husband who is also in pursuit of intimacy with our Lord. We work together in real estate and ministry. We have four children and seven grandchildren.

Your Source

My child, do not give yourself to this world. Do not be taken in by the lust it tempts you with. The world cannot bring the satisfaction you are searching for. Only I can bring you fulfillment. Only I can fill you with the peace you long for. The world will lie to you. The world will lure you in to be a part of the culture. Do not be sucked in. It’s a sham. Many people believe the lie only to come to the end of their lives and have nothing. I am your Source and I give you what you need. I alone am your hearts desire and bring completeness to your hungry soul.

Walk By Faith

My child, what I am calling you into is going to be a process. It is going to happen over time. Do not be discouraged if it doesn’t happen over night. My timing is perfect. Just do what I am telling you to do today. Tomorrow will take care of itself. I have already laid out the plan for your life. Walk in obedience today. Take that step of faith today. Do not fear or be anxious. To the one who is faithful in the small things will be given bigger things down the road. Take that small step today. Be faithful and obedient today, and over time you will see My plan unfold.

Rest

Come to Me and I will give you rest. I will give you peace, joy and hope. Come to Me when you’re weary, beaten down and discouraged. You will find the peace, joy and hope you so desperately need. Come to Me also when everything is going smoothly. Come to Me when you’re on top of your game. You need Me just as much when you’re prospering as when you’re suffering. Maybe even more so. For when everything is going good, pride, complacency and self-sufficiency can rear their ugly heads. Stay close to Me. Continually seek Me. Continually commune with Me. You need Me more now than ever.

All Things Are Possible

In your weakness, I am strong. In your poverty, I am rich. I bring the rains and I provide the sunlight. I order the days and command the nights. I raise up rulers and bring down rulers. I am the Maker of heaven and earth. My love overshadows the entire creation and I rejoice in My bride, the Church. I see the end from the beginning and know the outcome of it all. Never underestimate My power. Never put limits on what I can do. Keep your heart and mind open to Me and I will fill you with unimaginable possibilities. With Me and through Me all things are possible.

Faith

My child, I am blowing through this world. I am revealing Myself and drawing people to Myself. I am doing a work in their lives that could come no other way. Suffering is a great tool to bring people to the end of themselves. Self-sufficiency is a great danger. Feeling secure and well taken care of is deadly. I desire and require faith. Living by faith is an adventure, a challenge and life-giving. Complacency breeds contempt. Living on the edge with faith in Me is where I want you to be. Trust Me in every circumstance and leave the outcome to Me. Your life is in My hands.

Disappointments

My child, do not let disappointments discourage you. I am on this journey with you. Disappointments will come, but let them lead you to Me. Seek Me in your sorrow. Run to Me when you are discouraged. I will give you strength and courage. This life is not meant to be experienced without pain and suffering. If that were to the case, you wouldn’t need Me. In heaven I will wipe away every tear. But here on earth, I collect all the tears. I am with you in your sorrow. Give Me your disappointments. Let go of the despair. I am your shelter and refuge. Psalm 91

Pray

My child, in the last days people will fall away. Pray for those who are losing faith. Pray for their hearts to be enlightened by the Truth. Pray they not be enticed by the culture. In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness, for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. Romans 8:26

We All Fail

We all fail, but God keeps loving us. We all sin, but God has forgiven all of our sins, We all fall short, but God’s love is everlasting. It is a gift. A gift we just need to reach out and accept.

Unity

My child, unity is what I am after. I long for the day when you and I will be together where I am, to behold My glory and experience the rich love I have for you. But you can experience the richness of My love here and now. I dwell in you. My love is in you. My joy is in you. You will experience My love when you come and commune with Me and when you release My love to others. A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. Let Me love envelop you. Let My love penetrate your heart. Let My love flow through you. I laid down My life because of My deep love for you. John 13:34

Expect For Things To Turn Out Well

In the stillness wait. When you see nothing happening, pray. When your mind starts to wander, praise, and expect for things to turn out well. When you think you can’t go on, trust. When you’ve lost all strength, believe. When you’re at the end, surrender all and expect for things to turn out well. Believe God’s promises, trust His Word. Crush the devil lies. You have a Savior, Redeemer and Lord, expect for things to turn out well. And at the end of your life when all is said and done, Jesus comes, receive your reward. Eternity is waiting, it’s our glorious home and forever we’ll dwell, we just need to expect for things to turn out well.
