“Can I do something?” is a far different question from “will I do something?” For the first is a question of ability, while the second is a question of ability rendered irrelevant by passion.” ― Craig D. Lounsbrough
Responsibility…Responding to all opportunities with the Ability God placed within You…..
We have come from our wilderness dimension….
We are called to express to others….The Light …The Way…
With every privilege comes a responsibility in it…
New responsibilities are required to step into the new dimension God is calling us to…
that new dimension, where we respond with the ability God gave us, for this time on Earth….to walk in the world and truly not of the world….expressing in form….our Higher Self…Holy Spirit…. seeding Light…showing The Way….
We are called to show others….The Christ shining through Us….
Ephesians 4:22-24 Christian Standard Bible
22 to take off[a] your former way of life, the old self that is corrupted by deceitful desires, 23 to be renewed[b] in the spirit of your minds, 24 and to put on[c] the new self, the one created according to God’s likeness in righteousness and purity of the truth.
“Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson
When we dare to live fully…right where we are…we enter the moment with the weight of all of our attention….
Reflection of such is the birthplace of discernment…a most insightful, awakened place that empowers you to realize…..we choose the skin our stories are held together with… the skin we will eventually grow through and shed…over and over again…
awakening is like that..it evolves as you choose to grow…
Awakening is not just an event….it is nature’s way to carry us through the eternity of time…you can choose to create a rhythm with the process and entertain new steps..new views…in an elevated acceptance of the responsibility required for forward walking….
As we let the Light bend the moments…..we can see the pattern of Gods’ Hands…everywhere….
“Awakening is the greatest acceptance of nature.” ― Yash Thakur
“At any point God can change his plans for your life when he decides your life purpose needs to be protected.” ― Shannon L. Alder
Even Shakespeare wasn’t as tragic as 2020..
While embracing the elongated stillness in my corner of the world… sight was increasing…Spirit became more vocal…….I practiced listening for God first in everything….EVERYTHING…
because it mattered harder than ever before…..
I held on to hope and quoted scriptures like mantras all day long….* still do*
as my old life….flew away…and my future plans suddenly disappeared….my unquenchable need for things to be different…..stopped…my thirst was satisfied right where I was..and as I felt around my edges..I noticed I had let go….
At the very beginning of 2020……I asked God to help me grow…and it started raining…..
“Those blessings are sweetest that are won with prayer and worn with thanks.” ― Thomas Goodwin
May you notice sacred moments and give Thanks for all that is in your world..for all you have and all you have let go of….
God is still working in your life..you have a new story unfolding…
It is in the waiting..that trust builds momentum toward Gods plans for you……
Scripture says..Be Thankful IN everything..It does not say Be thankful for everything..
In the uncertainty of this timeline we live within..keep the heart opened and let Peace be the frequency you dwell within…speak Peace into all steps of your Living…into all thoughts before manifesting them…
Peace this deep is found in the unshakable trust we Give to God…..strength is that which He gladly gives us through this trust….
PSALM 34:4 I sought the Lord and He answered me… He delivered me from all my fears
“Waiting on God requires the willingness to bear uncertainty, to carry within oneself the unanswered question, lifting the heart to God about it whenever it intrudes upon one’s thoughts.” ― Elizabeth Elliot
The hand of the LORD was upon me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the LORD and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones.
He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” I said, “O Sovereign LORD, you alone know.” Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, `Dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! This is what the Sovereign LORD says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life.
“There’s moments we all experience in life where we find ourselves having a funeral for dreams that we once really believed in.”
A sermon from Steven Furtick, Elevation Church’s lead pastor, inspired the song *listen below*as he detailed the funeral of the prophet Elisha in 2 Kings. Intending to bury another man, a pair of Israelites were standing near Elisha’s gravesite when they saw their enemy fast-approaching. Scared, they quickly threw the dead body into Elisha’s grave. Miraculously, when the body touched the dead prophet’s bones, the man came to life.
Elisha still had a resurrection miracle left in his bones, and God is still in the business of bringing dead things back to life.
“If we’ll trust God even with the seemingly dead areas of our lives, if we’ll believe in the power of God, if we’ll declare resurrection power over everything we sow, nothing will be wasted.”
“There’s truths you have to grow into.” ― H.G. Wells
even thorns bloom…..
While addressing that which is going on within …..for that’s all that is truly going on….be mellow with that which you place focus on….be gentle dear traveler….when finding freedom from what could have been…
No words or movements needed or required……are ever hurried….
“Love is holy because it is like grace–the worthiness of its object is never really what matters.” ― Marilynne Robinson, Gilead
