In order to effectively maneuver this journey you must connect with your Paraclete-Holy Spirit who walks alongside.  Holy Spirit is indeed a comforter in times of feeling alone, discouraged, defeated. When you connect you recognize that- although physically you may be alone, you are more than a conqueror.  How is that for lifting you? This is a great season to offer thanks for your journey, for your life.  it is a great time to listen and follow.  Please pray for the peace of Jerusalem.  type to you later.

Connecting with And

So now how do you connect with positive 'ands'?  Start with connecting with Holy Spirit.  Ask which way, and then follow guidance.  Watch what God is doing and go with that.  Wait on it.  Marvel each moment.  Enjoy each moment of life that you have been given- it is a blessing!  Get excited about your life and what God has in store for you.  There, now you have connected with the ultimate 'And'. 

Oh yeah, the ultimate 'And' was always there for you- now you get it.  So now - being connected with the ultimate 'And' opens doors for you for positive connections, positive relationships.  Allow Holy Spirit to guide you into those positive relationships and then cherish each one.  Enjoy this day- you know who made it! type to you later.

Relationship is most important.  While in Israel, my instructor, Dr. John Beck, time after time reiterated the importance of relationship.  And how so? After all Jesus exhibited relationship and the importance of community with His disciples. 

When I was young everyone knew me and my sister as Annette and Terry. Now she has her husband, Clarence.  And it goes on, whether it is spouse, children, friends, links to organizations.  I thought about how important it is to have an 'and' in your life.  It is what gives many people hope, or to take a line from a movie, "it gives witness to your life."  Whether it is a as marriage, love, family, friendship, organizations, church friends, it is important.  And yes, the 'ands' may change as they are there for a season.

Take some time to examine the the positive 'ands' in your life.  Cherish those ands and the season.  Begin to see them as links to life as Jesus exhibited.  See how precious you are in the relationship and how precious they are to you.  See how precious the relationship is in this season of your life.  And- if you think you have no personal 'and' I encourage you to look harder.  We are linked and you have never been without Holy Spirit who is guiding and who will guide you.  I bless you with positive relationships. type to you later.

Never Alone

I just returned from another trip to Israel.  Each time I travel I learn so much, about the land, about Jesus and His ministry, about me.  This time was no different.  I am presently in such a contemplative period, and I watch to see what God is doing. 

I am clear about my passion for living, and I am clear that many people just don't get it.  I am also clear that to be concerned about whether someone may or may not understand about me is a distraction.  Do you know how hurtful people can be, if you let them? 

While we sojourn in this land, this society, we cannot allow toxic people, places, things to misdirect our our path.  Do not allow yourself to be misdirected from the path that God has laid out.  Yes, it can be a challenge, ah- but it is doable.  Stay the journey.  You are not alone.  You have never been alone.  Spend some time with Psalm 23 today.  Read it, recite it, soak it in.  And then find your place there. type to you later.
