A Beautiful Blessing

I had a beautiful blessing the other day.  I was not feeling well and had to do some writing.  (who lives in another state) did not know this but texted me to bless me with a day of productivity.  Now I do understand the power in the blessing.  It is a divine power that we have been given.  And I constantly bless others with what I hear from Holy Spirit; yet I do not receive many blessings. Well not in the same vein; this is not a complaint, but an observation. My blessings abound from other ways.  You know God has no limits.  So, when my son blessed me, I felt empowered to finish what I was working on.

I encourage you to listen to Holy Spirit and when He places someone on your heart to pronounce a blessing - do so.  Spend time with Ephesians 2:6.  enough for now.

"Live on Purpose"

Yes, so much is going on. Yes, people have lost their mind.  Yes, it does not make sense.  Yes, there is something we can do. Yes, you have it in you.  But first - what is going on with you?  Where is your heart? your focus?  That will determine how you act, react.  Let's just start with you. 

Allow yourself to be whom you have already been created. I said it like that on purpose.  God has already shaped you, blessed you with gifts and talents, and given you a straight line to the heart of God.  That is how much you are loved.  When you recognize that, you can walk in that amid all types of craziness.  Carolyn Knight says so often, "Live on Purpose."  I agree as that purpose is yours and yours alone.  Walk into it.  Watch what God is doing in your life. enough for now.

Hold on to it- Real Love

See how quickly we move past a date?  Valentines is over and the love is gone.  Don't you want something more substantial?  more secure?  I do.  I want more than a "valentine love" when men in many places greets with "happy valentine," or "happy mother's day."  Why can't they greet that sentiment all year?  No, not just the words, but the sentiment - from the heart.  Why can't we do the same?  We can, the love does not come from a commercial day- but from an overflow of God's love for us.  Let's try it.  Start now, as we move into this Lenten season.  Receive God's love and then allow it to overflow to another. 

While in India the people that I connect with greeted me with "Namaste." All I could get out was a nod and hello. I was back at home before I realized just what that greeting meant.  "I bow to the divine in you."  My my.  People greeting me with "Namaste."  It didn't matter where I was from.  Did you hear it? Here, at home, we don't even greet some people who do not look like, act like, dress like we do.  You know I'm right. But to recognize God's creation of another human, oh my goodness.  Let's do it. I believe when you get it in you spirit you can be sincere. To get that is you spirit, you must recognize who you are as God's beloved.  Let that be your season- a season of recognizing you- of God's love for you.  That love is without bounds and cannot be dated.  It is always new!  And then let that love overflow.  Namaste. enough for now.

Bigger than a Day

Happy Valentine's day!  Okay, let me say it another way. Happy love day.  Happy acknowledging love day.  Hmmm.  Let me try again- you see acknowledging love should never be reduced to one day.  That's the commercial part.  You should love everyday.  You can feel love everyday.  Love is bigger than a day.

Love is so much more than a day.  You have a role model for ultimate love- Jesus.  You are loved.  Yes you are.  Sometimes you may feel no love from another, but get still, invite Jesus.  Allow Holy Spirit to guide you to that place of peace.  Feel that awesome love.  You are indeed God's Beloved.  You are so special, everyday.  Feel that precious space of who you really are.  Enjoy love everyday! Loving you.  enough for now.

Junk Out

You know, the more I learn about others, the more I resolve about self.  Too often, we hold on to stuff that absolutely has no value to us or in our lives. Yes we do. We fill our minds with too much junk. There is so much more to what God has for us, yet our own wounding can deter us. 

Junk can cause emotional upheaval and you can't pinpoint the source.  And sometimes when you attempt to pinpoint the source you find yourself on a rabbit trail - distracted. I challenge you to join me in letting go of junk.  Before you let go, you must recognize the difference between the junk and usable information.  Enjoy the release of your junk.  enough for now.
