“Be in a state of acceptance on all levels.”
Accept who you are, what you are and why you are here; in the moment.
“The one who hears the word and accepts it joyfully has it.” (Mt. 13)
All we have is this time in space; a blade of grass, the quiet wind or the peak of a new dawn on the horizon.
Acceptance is the act of listening to the inner urgings of Spirit and not the chatter of another.
Tomorrow may bring a new choice or challenge. “Right now, I am occupying God’s time and that is enough for me.”
“Accept my will, my way.”
“Take the words that I give you and use them. They were written for you and for all who have ears to hear, spirits to soar and hearts to sing.”
Don’t look back on what was; lingering in the past on what prevents you from stepping and being in the present.
All you have to do is ask and the help will come, “In me you have complete companionship.”
Move in and take a step forward into the unknown, the “World of the Wondrous.” Are you ready to wrap yourself into that world? It’s yours for the taking;
The core of being is to take what’s been given to you and use it, “All things are possible with God.”
“Awaken to the ‘Inner Ticker’, the divinity within. Be led, to see and be.”
“Your heart is the manifestation of the Light within, the most perfect part of yourself.”
How does one manifest the Light and Be?
First, be rid of guilt, fear and anger. “Anger is a reaction not an action.” It leaves you stuck in the mud and out of gas.
Be an example for others. Take responsibility for your own choices or when you are at fault, “My strength is made perfect in your weakness.”
In spite of setbacks or personal revelations, being allows one to “grown in her/his own direction” with God at the front of the line, “Lean on Me!”
Find that perfect part of you, walk the upward way and ‘Be.’
Happy Son Day for Sunday!
We are blessed and perfect in God’s eyes, regardless of circumstances that come about. However, there are moments in life we like to hold onto stuff.
The burden one carries to keep the wheels of the bus turning by claiming, “I have a problem.” It’s time to switch the channel.
“Tell your problems how big your God is!”
God is not the author of confusion but the director of choices and solutions; “a problem may arise around me, but I rise out of the center.”
Clarity of purpose brings about the power of being.
Several years ago, I was blessed by a dear friend who taught me so much about life. He has since moved on in his journey. I will be using teachings he passed on to me when I was looking for spiritual direction.
In this life, Yeshua Jesus encourages me to pass it on; the messages, the inspiration and his teachings via the power of the Holy Shekinah Spirit.
Here is the 1st Lesson in Being:
“If you wanted to pick yourself up and move from one room to another, would it be an obstruction? No, it would be honoring and being who you are.”
We reside in a human body with a mind that will ‘nag’ at us. The old lines, “I’m not good enough or smart enough” is not truth.
Our quest in life is to find that truth in the midst of the Christ Consciousness that dwells within via the Shekinah Spirit and be.
Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life (Light).” Which way are you going? Are you being?
I dedicate this teaching series, Being, to my friend’s Lynn & D’hartma who are somewhere in the mansions of heaven!
In May of 2010, I had a bird family move into my recycled plastic bags in my front garden area. It was strange. God was sending me a message. I needed to pay attention.
I watched the parents build a nest in the bags; meticulous and persistent, bringing in twigs and such. Soon there were eggs and then baby birds.
The parents were vigilant caring for the little ones, just as God cares for us; providing all of our needs and some of our wants.
Soon, the babies grew up. They began to take flight and leave the nest one by one.
There was one little guy left behind; struggling and squawking, needing extra support. A day later, the little guy took off.
There will come a time in one’s life that we may be embarking on a new journey or leaving behind that which does not work or serve any universal purpose. When this happens, God will provide the assistance, time and place to get us “Into Flight.”
“I have so much for you. You will not be able to contain it!”
We are so busy in our daily lives. We forget the possibilities that abound us and the good God has in store for us.
I am encouraging you to change your way of thinking? Why?
God has opened the “Windows of Heaven.”
Here is God’s promise taken from Malachi 3: “I will open the windows of heaven and pour out on you in abundance all kinds of good things.” He never rescinds on his promises.
This morning, after my “Share Time” with Yeshua Jesus and breaking bread during the “Meal that Heals”, I was given this vision:
I was standing under a waterfall on the side of a mountain. The water was pouring over me, encompassing my being; a representation of ‘God’s Blessings’ being poured forth from the “Windows of Heaven.”
I looked down and there were other waterfalls below. I watched the water pour out, as a never ending cycle of God’s Love.
Don’t block the blessings!
“That which is opened cannot be closed.”
I found this great photo by Claude Piche and it is a perfect snap shot of my vision. God is good!
“In my Light is my Love for you and the hope I have for you!”
God said, “Put me to the test and you will see that I will open the windows of heaven and pour out on you; in abundance all kinds of good things.” (Mal. 3) One of these “good things” is the Light.
The Light flows in and around those who believe; penetrating any barrier of darkness.
During the transfiguration, with his friends looking on, “A change came over Jesus. His face was shining like the sun and his clothes were dazzling white.” (Mt. 17)
Jesus said, “I am the Light of the World.” Come and bask in the reflection of my Light!
“Never let the Light extinguish. Keep it blazing in your heart!”
“He hides me in his shelter when there is trouble.” (Ps.27)
Last week, while in prayer; the Taize Chant, “The Lord is My Light” popped into my head. God shows up in a whisper or a song, when I need it most.
The same day, I pulled one of my books off the shelf and randomly opened a page. On the page was a quote taken from Psalm 27, “The Lord is My Light and Salvation; Whom Shall I fear?” This was my 2nd confirmation that this Psalm deserved a second look.
When blessings come, I can pay attention; embrace the message that God has my back or retreat into the darkness of whatever challenge is knocking at my door.
Have courage, this is no time to recoil. Remember, “The Lord is My Light, My Life and My Salvation!”
Pause & Reflect:
The Lord is My Light
“I must be where my Father’s work is.” (Lk.2)
Jesus described his work as “being about my Father’s business.” What was he referring to? He was focusing on the work he was sent to do.
Christ said, “With the bigger picture in front and before me, I knew time was short and life was closing in around me. I had to look beyond the trivial and make a decision and stick to it; regardless of which way the wind of the world was blowing.”
When called to do the work there are two choices to consider:
Will you be about God’s business or will you be about the world’s business?
If you choose the latter, you will stumble along the way and waste precious time on nothing.
Christ encourages us to not squander our peace regardless of the circumstances.
Reflection: “Am I doing the will of the one who sent me in order to finish His work?” (Jn. 4)
