A Season of Celebration

Yesterday was the day, tomorrow is the day!  Yesterday we celebrated Good Friday, tomorrow we celebrate the Resurrection!  Because of Jesus' life death and resurrection you have hope.  We have new lease on life daily.  We have a chance to do it differently, to try again, to forgive, to move on, to grow- this time.  Yesterday may have held pain, sorrow, treachery, difficulties greater than can be imagined, loneliness; ah BUT GOD! 

God loves us so much that we can see differently -today. We can feel differently -today.  We can try another way- today. Yeah, no one understood us yesterday- but today we are assured that because of God's mercies and His great love for us we can claim this day!  It is the present- our present- God's gift.  God's gift to us -  His only son, Jesus, gives us what we need today to grasp everything that God has for us.

Slow down, you're thinking too hard.  God loves you and you have a chance!!!!!  You are His Beloved and trust me- He is with you.  You what is crazy?  I said, "trust me,"  and you thought okay, what does God have for me?  (or something like that)  Anyway - God says, "trust me,"  and that frightens you. You have Holy Spirit to guide you, to walk with you, so whatever the day, the season brings, you can make it.  Jesus' resurrection was so much more than you can imagine- all for you.  He really loves you.  Yesterday was the day, today is your present from God- your life.  Unwrap it,  play with the paper,  explore the gift.  Tomorrow is your future.  You can't begin to understand how awesome tomorrow will be if you do not learn from yesterday and if you miss today.  Celebrate the resurrection of Jesus tomorrow! It is all about His obedience to His Father and His Father's love for you. This is a season of Celebration! type to you later.

Have You Ever?

Have you ever found yourself in a situation that you knew it was an attack? Yet you had to get to that point. Ah, but when you got to the realization that it was an attack- then you could stand.

And the crazy part is when you stood - ohh whew! It all fell into place. Then you can see how foolish the attack is because you you know who you stand with, you know what you stand on.

It's almost like a boxer wearing himself out hitting you, yet the blows go nowhere. Yeah -it's like that. Have you ever had it it to happen? Oh my! Enjoy your identity as His Beloved. Nothing can harm you. Although it tries-it fails. type to you later.

Discover You

What do you expect from life?  What do you want? What do you contribute?  What are you doing? Who are you?  Hmmm. Spend the rest of the Lenten season contemplating these questions. Move all out of your way.  Don't worry about what is or is not going on at the job, school, family, church.  It does not mean that you are not concerned, it means that it is time to take a discovery journey.  Wait as you are contemplating.  Listen to Holy Spirit.  Watch what God is doing.  You see, you can't discover self without seeing God.  Not possible.  We'll talk later about what you discovered.  Yeah, it is a discovery.  talk to you  later.
