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

“I am in the details.”

Delay is sometimes necessary and not welcomed in our instant world.

God may give you a spiritual pause; without a word or inspiration, just as Jesus experienced in the wilderness.

We are linked to others via our surroundings or experiences. There is a desire to have a “right now” solution or answer to a prayer, etc.

We may want to intercede or interfere due to a “preconceived bias” with those whom God is lifting up to a different level, which is beyond one’s sight.

Delay is an opportunity for God to work it all out, so we can walk it out; abiding with God.

“I have a plan and a purpose for your life.”

Pressing On

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

Rely on my inspiration and leading; nothing is impossible for me.

I am at every curve and turn, “I am pressing on; not that I have already attained or perfected.” Follow each and every step.

“Along this great walk of life, one may veer off the spiritual path. It’s OK. At anytime during the journey, be willing to retrace your steps.”*

Pay attention to the road along the way. Embrace the beauty of your world, wherever you are and be.

“Lead them in the way they are to go.”

Son Day for Sunday

Game of Life!

“You are making your way!”

On this auspicious and omnipotent day, you have discovered the “Game of Life”* and how to live it! The past is where is should be; behind you.

Your present; the gifts of the Mother/Father are here. They have been poured forth into holy vessels waiting for you to empty the contents; reach in and begin your life anew.

“God is man’s unfailing and inexhaustible supply.”

Begin to see the beauty all around you and hold to God’s perfect vision.

Nothing is hidden. You have a clear view.

“From where you are, step forward and breathe!”

God is the Giver!

“I came into this world so those who can’t see, will see!”

God is the giver and we are the receivers! Jesus proved this many times through the miracles and wonders of his ministry; those recorded in the holy book.

Wherever Jesus went, there was always a large group of people in need of some sort of healing. One of the famous recorded miracles was the healing of the blind man; one without sight since birth.

Questions came up about the cause of the blindness: “Who is to blame for this man’s blindness?” Jesus’ response was, “No one!” He went on to explain, “I must work the works of him who sent me while it is still day. The night is coming soon.” (Jn. 3)

After being healed, the man was questioned. His response reminded me of the song Amazing Grace: “I was once blind, but now I can see.”

Is there a temporary hindrance blocking your view?

Are you blind to the opportunities God has in store for you? Are you focusing on what’s wrong instead of reaching towards what’s right?

God can and will utilize every being for good. Why?

When we become one with our good, we become one with God.

God gives and we receive; if we ask and believe.

“Ask and you shall receive!”

Two by Two

Prophetic Passages

“So the Father has sent me, I am sending you out; two by two!”

When one is in motion, spinning too much; it’s hard to stop and appreciate all that is around you.

You have been sent to various parts of your world just as Jesus sent out those he loved, two by two.

If you feel concerned or fearful about where you are placed, do not fear! Instead, embrace the experience of being and living.

If you are a true light bearer/helper and follower of “The Way”; you are where you are supposed to be, allowing others to find and seek what you have.

Yes, there will be more “wars and rumors of wars”, as well as weather and earth changes.

In the midst of these challenges will be you, Children of God; spreading love and hope to those who have none, a shining light in very dark spaces.

Take your place and don’t look back or too far ahead!

We go hand in hand as I send you out, two by two!

“There are 2 olive trees, one on the right and one on the left.”

Son Day for Sunday

Lights that Flicker

“A servant of God must stand so very much alone that he never realizes he is alone.”

Sometimes “Lights that Flicker” do fade or go out altogether.

In the early stages of “the Way” disappointments came. People who were lights faded out. Those who once stood strong turned away and this still happens today.

We all have clay feet at one time or another. If we travel back to the “Garden” for a moment, we find Jesus in the midst of distress. He asks his friends to “stay here and keep watch with me.” They soon fall back to sleep and he is left alone.

As individuals or as a collective, lights can flicker and fade for a period of time.

When important individuals go away, we are sad. Yet it is meant to be; time for all involved, to move on. Now what?

Finding solace in the “Light of the World”, the one that never extinguishes is our strength.

Tune in and seek the face of God; the eternal Light of Love, the one who promises, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

“You are beautiful, be my Light!”

 

Get to Know Me!

“My Spirit is in every fiber of your being.”

I am closer than breathing. My Spirit resides within you. Get to know me!

Ask the questions and the answers will come if you dare to be so bold; honor who you are and step out in truth.

Don’t put all your eggs in any one basket. Discern every situation and don’t falter in your faith.

See me as your constant companion. Take me everywhere with you.

When you can’t figure something out, ask for my help. Put me in the middle of everything.

“Our Spirit slowly awakens as we open ourselves up to God’s healing balm.”*
