Thankful Giving

Embedded image

“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.”

Resurrection Power

Ezekiel 37

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.”

Amen!
You turn graves into gardens  You turn bones into armies  You turn seas into highways  You’re the only one who can  “Graves Into Gardens” Elevation Worship

PSALMS 40:3

He put a new song in my mouth,
    a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear the Lord
    and put their trust in him.

Resting in Gods Promise……

He makes a Way when there is no Way….

Great is His Faithfulness…..

So busy in the crisis that is in my life..trying to survive and reaching depths of ruin..at every turn….where my words of prayer are paralyzed from my voice…and yet….

Holy Spirit is poured through me….

Spirit steps up and begins to plead for me..carrying my prayers to God….He begins to stir my heart with a Hope that is supernatural..

I have given God countless reasons not to love me. None of them has ever been strong enough to change Him.

Yet through those storms, He Changed Me…..and continues to do so….His strength is mine to hold to…and I hold tightly..

I am at the depths of done…everything that my life was..is no more…I should be quite conditioned to ruin…seems before 2020…God moved mountains while my eyes were still shut..

It is with great truth…I AM NOW given High Sight….

Awakened ..eyes and heart wide open….. I am being restored..

This is something that sounds amazing..

yet….

It is brutal and I am stripped to bare bones…

I allow such and cry..into my cup of Faith…

“Peace is not elusive. It’s just that we want to create it, which doesn’t really make it elusive. It makes it impossible. Yet, the peace that I have is in remembering that with God, nothing is impossible.”

The Wisdom of Tenderness

Requited love!

“You know those little moments when an unexpected act or a spoken word affects your heart with sweet, satiating intensity―a simple gesture that possesses deep, personal meaning beyond what anyone realizes?  You know those tender moments?  That’s God pressing his lips on your forehead and whispering, ‘I love you.’”
― 
Richelle E. Goodrich, Smile Anyway

Not all that Spirit shows us….is positive and blissful…yet the Way may be traversed always in tenderness…

Breathe in and allow that breath to be known as what it is…. the breath of God..

feel that strength..feel the Peace as you exhale every Blessing in that breath….out into your created, manifested moment…and recognize the fruit within….every single thing that brought us here, every single thing we worked through and came into truth with..is done..we are ready for the new frontier…

We must see with the new sight we have been given….and with this sight..we must begin stepping into a new place..with a new rhythm, and recognize our new purpose…

Consciously dwell where Spirit guides and be grateful to be free of trying to know more….all continues to be revealed to us..as we elevate our BEING…toward it….

using the wisdom of tenderness toward Self and seeing it express itself into this new place we have entered….gives us expanded options..sit with such and allow God to work through you..Allow Spirit its turn…

It is in this place…that peace can fill our senses…tenderly….as we truly begin our journey..where no human has ever ventured… since time began…

allow your Self…to be NEW…

“Your tenderness has pervaded into the very pore of my being. Last night I inhaled the fragrance of the moon!”

― Thomas à Kempis, 
The Imitation of Christ

Peace is born …..opened and shared …..like our Light…. was born to us….

Its’ presence…..requires fully…the allowing….

Peace is a soul sense…..its roots deep in Gods workings…

its growth…. a natural rhythm Soul shares with us….

as we walk through this threshold of time….our inner senses delight our sight….

We come into balance with God…through Peace….

“Spiritual practices performed in the middle of our mundane days bring us into the presence of an astonishing God.”

Harvesting Balance

Pic By Miles Herbert/Caters News - (Pictured: A harvest mouse inside a tulip. Pic Taken: 18/05/2017) - This photographer must have let out a squeak of delight when he spotted some cute mice tiptoeing through the tulips near his Bournemouth home. Miles Herbert, 52, captured the sweet snaps as the harvest mice played inside the colourful flowers for several minutes. Miles, who runs photography workshops with his company, Captivelight Photography, said harvest mice were cute but destructive ...

“I didn’t survive
the storm outside
to allow anyone 
(including myself)
to erode my soul” 
― Vijaya Gowrisankar

The mind of an enlightened creator KNOWS that of themselves, they do nothing. But in each moment of decision, they can ALLOW, the great power and mystery of Love to direct their course. They can utilize time to refine their ability to hear ONLY the voice of Love, moment by moment, breath by breath, day by day, until time is translated into eternity. And the mind rests, reclines, in its perfect union with God. Events still occur. The world is still what the world will choose to be, unaware that there walks in its midst one who is awake, who needs to make no show. They merely ARE the presence of wakefulness, knowing that in each moment, they will now be INformed by the guidance of the Comforter, the guidance of right-mindedness, the guidance of enlightenment.

The Way of Mastery… The Way of the Heart

It’s not what you believe….it’s what you allow….

This is the true nature of the undivided balance….. ones wholehearted acceptance to that which they themselves are allowing….

Faith tends our gardens…for right-minded allowing…to endure…to flourish

We are living miracles in this eternity of time…allow yourself to know this…

To be in awareness of that which you allow…is found in the pause…is found in feeling one’s own awareness of the energy that is showing up….in our thoughts…in our works…

The Way Leaves Flower

“Autumn leaves don’t fall, they fly. They take their time and wander on this their only chance to soar.” Delia Owens, Where the Crawdads Sing

Time does not heal…It is letting go….of time…..that heals

Autumn is the season that teaches us this mastery…..

it is here, in Autumn…where we enter our quietude…. In a natural way….as if activated like a bloomed flower…at the end of its beginnings…

The sound of Autumn… is nature breathing out…with its last beauty….

Autumn is the space God gives us…to gently come into balance…with all we have become….and all we have let go…..

“Autumn…the year’s last, loveliest smile.”

“There’s truths you have to grow into.”
― H.G. Wells

Breathe……

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.”

Beyond Skin

A Large Pile of Rocks by Tammy Lang Jensen

RUMI | “My soul is from elsewhere, I’m sure of that, and I intend to end up there.”

Nothing outside of Self..taught Abram…. or presented an “opinion” to Abram….about God…….

He experienced His Heart…

He listened to the stirring beyond his skin….. moved by Holy Spirit……He followed….

Do not let form block you from your power….to be available to God….in all moments

Let the reality of Gods nearness…… turn you on….. inside out…..

This is the power of your true nature…..your true identity….

I AM that I AM…always in His likeness… created by His Love….

“Abram had no Bible, no church, no religious conviction,

No Bible teacher, no evangelist,

No Bible school…

Abram was a man who met God” A.W. TOZER
