I Am WIth You

I am with you.  I am with you.  How many times have you felt all alone?  I am with you.  How many times have you called out, didn't hear; reached out, no one reached back?  I am with you.  True - friends may not be there when you need them. Family may not understand that you need them.  You may not know what you need.  But Jesus! His promise is true- I am with you. 

Let that permeate your every being.  I am with you.  You are never alone.  You can hope because of His promise.  You can . . . you can make it . . . you can take it . . . you can get through it . . . you can get over it . . . because He is with you.  Stay with all day.  Then stay with it all night.  Then stay with it tomorrow and all you tomorrows.  I am with you.  I love it!!!! enough for now.

Recognize the Presence

Let this be a time of walking in contemplation, of listening.  Don't miss this time of your recognizing restoral. Two of the disciples missed who Jesus was as they walked toward the village of Emmaus. They were discussing all that had happened. All that had happened.  All that had happened.  They were so stuck in the past, although the immediate past, that they missed what was happening in the present. Jesus was with them in their present. As Jesus talked with them they still missed His presence.  It was not until they invited Jesus to stay with them that they got it.  At the table - when Jesus took the bread, gave thanks, broke it, and gave the bread to them- then they recognized Him, then He was gone.

Sometimes we get so caught up on what has happened to us, with us, around us that we miss what God is doing right now in our present. You cannot recognize what God is doing unless you invite Him in.  Don't get stuck in your past, recognize the awesomeness of The Presence. enough for now.

Celebrate Resurrection

Blessing of recognition on this Resurrection day. Recognize that the love of God and the obedience of Jesus makes it possible to know the freedom we have. We know the message of the cross collectively, but what does it mean to you individually? Celebrate!

Be Renewed

As you emerge from this Lenten season I pray that you emerge renewed, rejuvenated, restored, all from spending time with Jesus. Start now. Hear from Holy Spirit, receive your blessing in even that.  Don't worry about what is going on in another's life.  Watch what God is doing in your life. 

You are a blessing. Walk in that major realization. Peace. enough for now.

Are You Listening?

Did you know that it does not take much to hear? You have to want to hear.  You have to listen.  There is more. You have to recognize and trust that you have heard.  And then you rest in what you hear, you follow what you hear.  There is a great peace in following Holy Spirit's guide for your life.  There is peace in watching what God is doing in your life.  No, you don't sit and do nothing.  Yes you release fret and fear while you watch.  You see, you shift your focus from you and your stuff to wtching what God is doing.  

You need some peace in your life in spite of all the junk.  You need peace in spite of the foolishness at your job, your school, your church, your home.  Shift your focus and start watching.  When your start watching you can begin listening.  It does not take that much to hear.  It does take a willing heart. Go ahead, try God.  enough for now.

Stop Running Around

Watch!  Stop running around like a chicken with your head cut off.  Even if that running around is only in your head, and usually it is in your head. Get still and watch what God is doing in your life, this day.  And then when you get clear instruction from Holy Spirit- go with it.  Follow.  Rest in that guidance. enough for now.

TODAY

TODAY. TODAY. TO DAY. T O D A Y. TODAY. Today. today.  Today is your day- your day.  It has already been promised to you. The red carpet has been laid out for your.  It is yours no matter what comes.  Ups or downs - it is yours.  Take it, walk it, allow each aspect of it to sink in- soak it up. There are gems for you to collect- today. Watch for them.  There are gems for you to give away. Watch for the opportunities. Today.

Things will happen- it is how you let those things affect you that matters.  It is how you feel about happens. How do you feel about what I just said?  What do you feel about today?  Let me help to get you going.  If there is fear about today, that is a lie from the pit of hell. You see, "God did not give us a spirit of timidity (fear), but a spirit of power, love, and self-discipline (sound mind)" (2 Tim. 1:7 NIV). Let that be your joy today.  And say "no" to anything less than what God has given.  Shift your focus toward what God has for you and not what society has done to you.

This is your day- Seize each moment and live. enough for now.
