Look Back and Realize

I am overjoyed and contemplative. Today is my only son's birthday. Happy Birthday Marq!  I am so excited at what God is doing in his life. I am blessed- so blessed. That caused me to be excited at what God is doing my life. Wow. You never know the journey- you don't need to know. You do need to know the Maker of the path, the paraclete who walks alongside, the one who loves you so much that he gave his life.  When you think about it- you begin to move into contemplative prayer and end with praise.

The song says, "When I look back over my life, and I think things over. I can truly say, that God has made a way. I've got a testimony." Go ahead, mark this day, you have a testimony. Thank him for all he's done this day, in your life, with your life. Need a little help?  He kept you so you could read this and realize the blessing of you, of your life. Thank God for it, for the up and the downs.  Yeah. enough for now.

Why am I Afraid?

The question to ponder is: "Why am I afraid to walk where he leads me?"  Go ahead ask your self . Don't answer right away. Just wait and let the Answer present it to you. The reason why? Because you will talk and you don't really know. 

That is a major problem with us anyway. When we don't know or are afraid of something we question it in so many ways. It makes us look like we know more than the whatever it is. We have solved the riddle. But we don't know. We cannot solve the mystery of God's love. We don't. We can't. But we can be thankful that we are counted as his Beloved.   

The crazy part is that it really is easier to follow than we think. It really is safer, more peaceful, more joyful to follow. We don't follow mindlessly, we follow knowingly, watching what God is doing. 

Spend time with the question. Write it down and as you hear answers - write them down also. blessings on this endeavor. enough for now.

Celebration of Life

A celebration of life. There is something about celebrating a life. And yes, it should be a celebration of a life well lived and loved. But there is another aspect- to celebrate your life as you live it. To walk knowing that you are walking and hearing direction. Celebrate your life - it is a gift to be explored each new day. Then you can recognize the love around you from kindred hearts, the guidance from Holy Spirit, the peace that only God brings.  Celebrate life- your life! enough for now.

The Quiet

Hmm. I marveled again at the quiet. No, not necessary the quiet around me from people. No, not the quiet from traffic. Not even the quiet from background noises. But the quiet in my life. The rest from trying to think it all out. The peace from just being. That really is what we are to do as believers- just be. You see, in the 'being' God molds us and shapes us into more of who we really are.  Today, work toward the 'being', allow your self to get quiet and listen; to get quiet and watch what God is doing in your life. enough for now.

Get Quiet

Today I marveled at the quiet. I listen to the birds - but I heard the quiet. I heard the cars- yet I heard the quiet. And in the quiet I found my peace.

Where can you find your peace? You can't make it. You can't make it happen. I do suggest that you first get quiet and wait. Get quiet and watch what God is doing. enough for now.

Change Your Way

Each day presents its own set of challenges. Yet, each day present its own set of possibilities.How do you view the day? Do you arise counting the things you must face or do? Or do you arise watching the glory- the beauty of the day?  Are you giving thanks for the new day? It's all how you arise. Change your way of getting up in the morning and watch what God is doing.  enough for now.

Waiting

Waiting . . . waiting on . . . waiting  for . . . waiting. We spend so much time waiting for someone, waiting on something. We spend so much precious time waiting for the wrong things. Many times what we are waiting on- disappoints.

Too often we find ourselves in so much turmoil trying to play catch up from lost 'waiting' time.
I have recognized to shift my priorities from all of that to waiting on God. Waiting on - in serving. Waiting for Holy Spirit's instructions. And I have found that the peace from waiting on God - wow, you can't beat it.

It's that statement that we hear so much - "What God has for you is for you." It is, and you can't bring it to you, neither can another. I encourage you to watch what God id doing in your life, and wait on God. enough for now.
