Already Done

How often do we allow past issues to creep back into our lives? And the sad thing is that they have already been handled by Jesus on the cross; but we try to continue fixing them. We still apologize, still rehearse what we could have done differently, still worry over what has already happened. Still caught up in our past that has been forgiven. Let that sink in. You are already forgiven. Take time with that- already forgiven. enough for now.

Loving

Yes, we recognize this day as officially a day of love. But each day should be a day of love. Learn to love yourself first, then others. You see, in order to love others you must know what love feels like. Loving yourself does not pump you into narcissism, that is another mess. But loving yourself sets you up to receive God's love. Too many have felt unloved, unworthy to be loved; but you see, God loves you with such a fierce passion. Had to be fierce, He sent His only son to die a death that you couldn't handle. That sets you up to live in love. As you receive that love, it can flow onto others.

Can you see it? You are indeed loved. Feel what that means. Let it permeate your being. Rest in that. Happy Valentine's Day; more than that Love Blessings every day. enough for now.

Shhhh

Patience. Quietness. Stillness. Be Still. Listen. Wait. Watch. And marvel at how awesome your life is- in spite of anything strange going on. Love your life. enough for now.

Open Your Eyes

The things you see when you open your eyes. Close your eyes. Wait. Open. What do you notice that you missed earlier? Now look in a different direction, what do you see? Now move to look back on where you were. What do you see? What did you miss?

My blessing for you is that your spiritual eyes are opened and you see what you have really been missing. This is more effective when you watch what God is doing. You will recognize solutions to problems that you could not understand. Blessings. enough for now.

Hold

"Lord, help me to hold out until my change comes." The sentiment of that song. Wow. How many times have you cried out? Then what? Did you cry out and proceeded to do what you thought? Did you cry out and then waited? We have been so programmed "to do" instead of "to be". It is hard for us "to be". Our first charge is to "Be still and know that I am God" (Ps. 46:10a).

In the being still, we can get clear directions. We wait through our being still. Where are you anxiously fretting, or running around and getting nothing done? Write it down, allow God to handle it and leave it alone. Try it. enough for now.

Waiting Takes Courage

Do you know how hard it is to wait on God? It really is difficult. It takes courage. Oh, but when you do, you find more peace, more clarity, more rest than you could ever imagine. Will you take that step- to wait on God? This is your life, your health- mentally, physically, spiritually, financially. Wait. And in the waiting, watch what God is doing in your life. enough for now.

Courage

Courage. I have to go to my favorite movie of all time. Wait on it . . . The Wizard of Oz. Yeah, that's true. And my favorite character- the lion. You see, I did it call him by his infirmity. But what he felt he lacked was courage until he walked it out. . . Until he got on his journey. 

Courage. When the men were sent to spy the land than God had given them, twelve men went. Ten came back that they couldn't take the land. Two, Joshua and Caleb said, we can take it. They had courage. Here is the crazy part. God had already given the land they just had to walk it. 

(Okay I'm not going into all of this now. More later.)

When the lion got off his spot in front of that building where he had "guarded" for years and got on his journey with the others, he found his courage. 

Courage. We miss many times what God has for us, even after He has said it it ours. All because we are stuck in what we think we know, in our limited vision. Where are you stuck? It's time to move out in what God has promised. Not sure - contact me. There is so much more for you. It's time to walk it out. enough for now.
