From the Pulpit & Into the Garden: "Grow Where You are Planted – Scatter Seeds of Inspiration!"

Ascending

“I want you ascending to new heights and new places.”

We are standing on the test of time, with nothing in between.

The past is where it should be. You have weathered the storm.

Now, a new door; new chapter opens in your “Book of Life.” Are you ready?

The ditches will soon be filled with rain; the blessings will abound.

This is the time and the season; it is the “Season of God.”

Take the strength I give you. You are ascending into new territory.

Be hopeful, be happy and be!

“I am with you always.”

A Date with Destiny

“Keep moving forward, no matter what; this is your call, your destiny!”

In order for the Kingdom of God/kinship to bear fruit on earth as it is in heaven, it is necessary for one to discover what her/his “Divine Destiny” is.

If you have pushed or tried to ram your will into a situation; the kingdom, as it is will not come. Let go and Let God; allowing the divine director, the “Inner Ticker” to guide your every step and you will always be on the right path.

What talents and gifts can you use to assist the whole of humanity, while following the plan?

“There is no limit to what you can accomplish.” Never relinquish any task or veer off the path because it seems beyond your scope or comprehension. The miracle is right around the corner.

God’s purpose is for one to discover the “mystery of God’s will.” In order to find out “who” you are, and “why” you are here; uncover the common thread/theme in your relationship with God and weave it into a new inner fabric design.

Your Destiny awaits you!

“Follow your path designed by God, inspired by the Spirit.”*

 

*Awakening the Inner Ticker of Life, pg. 79

“Now that you have planted your seed, allow yourself to bloom and grow.”

A Vision:

The God of Strength offers you a staff. It symbolizes the great Mustard Tree; one with strong roots and a firm foundation, “My foundation is in the Light.”

You are a sprout that has pushed up through the earth. Continue to nurture and care for yourself.

Become familiar with your surroundings and pay attention. Don’t doubt or blow off the smallest detail

Let go and be the tree.

“Anyone who believes and has strength will do the greater works.”

In God’s Light

“The Light of Christ is pure, simple and free!”

We, too, can shine bright, like Jesus, when we are washed clean of all the garbage that separates us from him. “Just as sin passes through the Light on its way to the Cross for permanent disposal; we, as children of God must pass through the Light to accept the things in life one can or cannot change, in order to have new beginnings.”*

Take action and release all dis-ease, lack, loss or imagined limitation. The light of the body is a reflection of God’s Light, dissolving anything that is not divine.

“Open wide the door; turn on the power and light up the world!”

 

*Deliver Me O’Lord, Patricia A. Zorn, pg. 7

 

Day of the Mother

“The mystery is a plan for fullness of time; a predestined purpose, according to God’s will.” (Eph 1)

In the garden, one of the plants I like to grow is Motherwort, also known as “Lions Tail.” There is a hint of strength is this tiny blessing of creation. Motherwort has healing properties that works on many levels. The seed is small (see pic) and requires delicate care when planting in the prepared soil; not too much water and don’t bury it too deep. Mother likes to be a bit closer to the surface, taking in the warmth of the morning sun.

Every plan (plant) in life begins as a seed. What is the source and where does it come from? “Every plant my Mother and Father in heaven has not planted will be rooted up and destroyed. Every plan that comes from heaven will not be dissolved.”

Once the seed takes hold, it will break through the soil and begin to bud, “Anyone who believes and has faith; beginning with the grain of a mustard seed, will do the works I do and greater!”

Mothers; when raising their children, scatter love as seeds of hope that one day their son or daughter will blossom and grow, according to God’s purpose. All the inspiration, goals and dreams prepared by God are interwoven within the seed.

On this Mother’s day, regardless of who you are; prepare the ground and scatter the seed. The seed is the foundation of spiritual growth on one’s awesome journey with God.

May you be blessed!

“Take my staff of strength. Let it blossom and grow within you.”

 

Bearing Fruit

“By your fruits you are known.”

What does this mean? We will have to go deeper to answer this question.

What about the fig tree described by Jesus?

We are preparing for a new season; a mirror reflection of who we are and being “of” this world.

The time is near for our convergence with the Holy Shekinah Spirit, “when the branches become green and tender” and the tree starts putting out leaves, it means that “summer is near”.

Pentecost will be Sunday, June 4, 2017. How do we prepare for this event?

Whether in ministry or in life, we are called to be and Jesus asks us to bear “good fruit.”

Take a moment to reflect: What I am doing in my spiritual life or community to bear fruit?

At times, we fall short of this goal; relying on our own power to see life through that stems from unrealistic expectations that did not begin with God, but grew from our own “vain imaginings.”

Where is my foundation? Do I have my feet firmly planted on the ground?  We don’t have branches, leaves or trunks because we have not laid the foundation by preparing and planting seed (more on this next week).

“Fruit of the Vine will become one’s spiritual food.”

You Know the Way!

“I have set before you an open door that no one can shut.”

I am showing you the way. The time to arise is here.

You have been given a new pair of shoes, put them on. Aren’t they a comfy fit?

Now, stand tall. You are ready!

Honor the truth that stirs within. I will direct you in the way to go, from this point forward.

Today, we begin a new race together.

Just as in heaven there are many doors and mansions, so it is here. I will open many new doors that lead into new abodes/mansions; the choices abound.

Choose wisely, as if you were picking produce at the market. There is a great harvest bearing fruit right now.

A way is being made, as we speak.

Get moving and break in those new shoes.

I am a bit ahead of you on the trail, but I will wait for you.

“I am the Way!”
