Because It Matters

“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…..

On the Rising … 2021

“Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.”… Jeremiah 33:3

When we intentionally praise God …..and offer thanksgiving to Him during a difficult time, our praise becomes our testimony.

It shifts our focus away from our problems and moves us to meditate on the nature and character of God Himself.

Intentional Praise reveals a FAITH that believes IN GOD’S GOODNESS above any sorrows we may face….

We see now..how we began seeding our path….leading us to face many completions….

Into each crevice of misery…we planted a promise of Hope…

We became more flexible and agile in the energy of the not knowing…

The strength was born from the gentleness of the flow we created..

Where you invest your Love….you invest your Life…..

“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language
And next year’s words await another voice.”
― T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets

Thank you to all that visit the Garden..

It is my honor to share Gods Beauty..in the bloomings and in the thorns of life…it is with a grateful heart ….that I seed this garden.

May you dare to create an amazing adventure in this New Era of your Life…

May God Bless You….

Happy New Beginnings..Happy New Age..in this New Year ….

Namaste’

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.”

Inner Peace Meditation GIF

“Don’t be afraid. Just stand still and watch the LORD rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again. The LORD himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.” (Exodus 14:13-14)

Be Still and Know…..in all your not knowing of your next step…that …

THAT STEP…..has already been marked for you to take..it has already happened…..

IF you decide to hurry thought and become human with that thought..and bring emotion energy to the thought…you INSTANTLY stop the natural occurrence of that which has been destined to you….

Let your stillness be completed in Faith..let Faith teach you Peace….Let Peace fill your mind..

EXPRESS GODS WORDS OF NEVER ENDING KNOWING THAT ALL IS GOODNESS..

Bless the situation no matter how it feels..SUCCESS…PROSPERITY…NEW JOB…loss of job..illness..anger…fear..

immediately bless the moment and the lesson you are accepting to not only learn but master beyond it..

Bless each moment knowing..all highest good flows through all blessings…..

THIS IS UNCONDITIONAL LOVE

Fix your focus on your desire in the next step…be sure of Gods LOVE….Take a deep breath…

AND BELIEVE…

TRUELY….DEEPLY…COMPLETELY…

Trust …

even and especially….when you don’t understand…

“miracles are the fruit of faith, not force. When”

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.”

Extraordinary Grace…

“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.”

If I cried out, who would hear me up there, among the angelic orders? Rainer Maria Rilke

We reach for words to speak in a voice that is both intimate and majestic on the mysteries of human life and our attempt….. to translate the angels language…..

to use our self-consciousness to some advantage…. to transcend…. through our art and the imagination…. our self-deception and our fear.

There is no gentle here, but oh how it longs to be tender, and oh how it yearns to be soft.

Path Well Lit

“The mind can go in a thousand directions, but on this beautiful path, I walk in peace. With each step, the wind blows. With each step, a flower blooms.”
― Thich Nhat Hanh

God fills our hearts and captures our minds with His Light..

Being conscious of the Self is a mind mending process….

The mind has a powerful way of attracting things that are in harmony with it…no matter at what elevation your mind wanders…

Remember..you are recovering from illusion…..

Fill the air with love and breathe deeply in….

Make a choice…change a future…..

“Seeking higher ground is not a destination, but an elevation. Wings up, eyes shut open.”

Far Side of Blooming

FRANSWAZZ

“None of us is promised an easy life. There is nothing we can do to keep ourselves immune to trials, and we cannot eradicate painful feelings in our lives.
But even the most difficult seasons are not absent of God’s love. And this love changes us. This is what I want to tell you: on the far side of pain we don’t prefer, we find transformation we wouldn’t trade.”
― Nicole Zasowski, 
From Lost to Found:

Seems we have always been next door to Heaven…..

Like a glimpse in the peripheral vision…..the feeling is ever so quick, yet runs so deep in the marrow… you feel the wind of its calling….its moment…and you touch that glimpse all day long and each time..the heart expands and the anticipation in the Spirit vibrates….

We watch as clouds shape shift and break out into beautiful colors of our imaginations…..

we squint to squeeze a bit more time into the sensation….

At that very moment…gateways are opening…bridges crossed, vanish…and the most splendid horrible relief comes over you….

Breathe deep dear travelers…we are stepping into a new life…and as that might sound so beautiful and full of anticipated happiness…

Realize……Remember…..

.…awakening was a horrible relief…and courage came….while we dared to bloom through it all….

All flowers, in time…bend toward the Sun…….

“It is said there are flowers that bloom only once in a hundred years. Why should there not be some that bloom once in a thousand, in ten thousand years? Perhaps we never know about them simply because this “once in a thousand years” has come today.”
