This Moment

As I contemplate the peace, the quiet, I marvel at how it permeates this space. And I considered what would be the event that takes this peace. That is where I went wrong. Not to consider what will be, but to take in what is. . . to be in the present moment with God.

Be still, and know that he is God. Wait and be in the peace- the present moment with him enough for now.

Today is a day of possibilities! Possibility. Not sure where, not sure what- yet possibility.  This is your day of possibility.  Don't let doubt deter you from what is yours today. Explore it with great anticipation! enough for now.

Watch Thankfully

Watch. Watch, and be thankful. Watch with a thankful heart. Watch what God is doing in your life. enough for now.

Slow Down

Slow down! I had to tell myself to do just that. You see, I recognized that I was racing into an area where God did not clear me to go.

There are times that we rush ahead toward a good thing, but we are not clear if that good thing is fo us. So, we have to slow down. Where are you? Do you need to slow down? enough for now.

New Day of Learning

Today is a new day. I learned more about life yesterday than the day before. But that is how is should be. We should learn each day. What will you learn? Will it be about others? will it be about yourself? Will it be a new way of doing things? At the end of this day check to see what you learned. enough for now.

I marvel at milestones in our lives. Yesterday my sister and brother-in-love celebrated 45 years of marriage. A milestone. A few weeks ago, my son celebrated the close of school. A milestone. A few weeks ago, one grandson celebrated celebrate graduation from high school. A milestone.
A few weeks ago, I recognized a weakness that had laid dormant and crept up. No, it's not a milestone; but if I can grow from that weakness, strengthened by the realization of what it really is- it will be a milestone. If I can remember to give thanks for my crossing over troubled waters that did not engulf me- it will be a milestone.

Celebrate life itself, as each new day is a milestone. Yes, some may be more memorable than others, but all are in the growing of you. All are in the path on your journey. Celebrate! enough for now.

No More Waste

I think sometimes we spend wasted energy trying to understand people who, more than likely, don't understand themselves.  We wonder how can they be so rude, so ugly, so irresponsible, so bullish. But if we are to focus on who we are and how God has made us, then we really don't have time to focus on anyone's foolishness. This life is precious and we really should nor miss what God is doing in our life.

The truth is that God also made them and loves them. That's a hard one- isn't it? He sees where the hurt is, ours and theirs. And he wants us to live fully- without the hurt.

So how do we not waste our energy? We focus on what Holy Spirit is directing for us. We seek help for our woundings. Yes, we pray that they seek help. But we focus on self in order to receive our healing. And then we can breathe clearer. enough for now.

To Reality

To reality. To realization. To seeing things a different way- a more revealing way. The challenge is to recognize and then to realize that the journey is about you; and you growing into more of who you really are.

Long ago I realized that, "Growth hurts." It still does. It is necessary.  The thing about it - is with Holy Spirit guiding, it doesn't hurt as much. It becomes more of an ache and not a pain. An ache from using muscles that have not been used in a while. Go ahead, listen and go with it. This is about you. And 'that' that is about you - develops inward because of the upward and permeates outward. Then it becomes not about you but about community. About loving one another. That is the present reality. enough for now.

A Shift

Peace. What takes your peace? Why? What can you do to maintain? Shift your focus from the peace stealer to to Peace Maker. Stop. Get quiet. Now listen. enough for now.

What happens when you recognize that a term of endearment for you is repulsive to another? That can be quite disturbing. But you make a change. If it means your peace, then walk in it. Walk in your peace. Walking in peace brings your joy. Stay there in your peace and watch what happens. enough for now.

Wait Happens

I am waiting on a plane that has been delayed twice. I’m thankful that I am not making a connecting flight. BUT - I have come to understand that wait happens and really, it is okay. We get bent all out of shape when things don’t move when we want them to move. BUT- we must wait sometimes.

I offer that we shift our focus from what we are waiting on. If we shift from whatever it is to what God is doing, then we can handle the wait. And anxiety ceases. See what is in the wait for you. There may be something grander or more peaceful, or more revealing in the wait. 

Watch what is for you in the wait. enough for now.

God Is

Oh listen, as you spend time with Psalm 46. Rest on verses one and two. You see you must know that God is our refuge and strength. You must know that for this journey. Read all the way through, pausing again on verse eight. Ohh, come and see what the Lord has done. When we were, we used to say, Come and see what the Lord done done. When you finish the Psalm, go back to verse ten - and "Be still, and know that He is God."

Take your time with this. He is God is spite of the foolishness of the world. He is God in spite of the enemy whispering otherwise. Kate Spade, Anthony Bordain, in the past week. Robin Williams and so many others in the past. Fame doesn't cut it. Depression knows no friends. You see, communication in community is so important. We must be connected. We must be able to share with someone where we are.

Don't ever let anything make you believe that you must keep silent because of your mental health. It is not a stigma. This is your life and you are to live it richer than you know. This has nothing to do with money, success in society, but in running your race to the fullest with Holy Spirit guiding. I promise there is so much more. Please get help.

Call somebody. Call me. Call God- he is our all in all. "God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble." enough for now.

A Good Day

Each day is your new possibility! Arise thanking God for what he has in store. At the end of the day thank him for what the day revealed. Learn something about yourself. And then rest assured that God does indeed have it. Today is a good day. enough for now.

Do Not. . .

Do not be dismayed, disturbed, or distracted. Be still and watch. Do not let let fear, anxiety, confusion take over. Watch and listen. Do not let anyone deter you from what God has designed for you. Listen and follow. Do not be what you are not created to be. Recognize the awesome person you are. You can by watching, listening, following. By watching what God is doing in your life. enough for now.
