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…..

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

“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…

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

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

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.
