“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…..
“A rose does not answer its enemies with words, but with beauty.” ― Matshona Dhliwayo
It is in revelations through hindsight..one rises from the fog of the awakening….where one sees through the heaviness of time..and the veils lift…Its the stuff of miracles and immense Faith…indeed….from fire to ashes to being placed on the potters wheel and becoming new..its all on Gods timing..one must simply be willing to Trust and Believe
When you have come through a lifetime of abuse and become an adult in it…and keep trying to become better so “they” will love you…one day..you will awaken..and it is the beginning of what will be the most horrible relief…
When you realize..you were always the last person that mattered…something shifts within you and what this is..is opening the door for God to establish his works within you.
It is at this very moment..in a wink of an eye..that you know you have stepped into the acceptance of being healed..and being Loved….and it all comes from within…it is indeed a fire one must walk all the way through…
This is not the end of that journey..it is the end of THAT long ago beginning….
God is doing a new thing through you..oh..its not new to Him….but for the last person that mattered..it is EVERYTHING….this courage that scares you to your bones…brings one to a healing that “surpasses all understanding”……if one stays the course…
Miracles are real…
—Jesus says, “Lazarus discovered I don’t wear a wristwatch.”..Prophetic Sight Bill Yount
The seed does indeed come to bear fruit…as it dares to reveal its true nature..by rising….
“We are healed of a suffering only by experiencing it to the full.” ― Marcel Proust
“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.”
“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….
“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
