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

Posts tagged ‘Contemplation Transformation’

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.”

Bearing Fruit – God is My Strength!

“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.”

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.”

Interrupting the Flow!

“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.”

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!”

Son Day for Sunday – I Am Waiting for You!

“I am waiting for you to gather with me on this Resurrection Morn”

Do I have your attention?

It is only when you are broken that you really seek me. When your heart and your spirit have been shattered into pieces is when I have your complete attention; like “Humpty Dumpty” being put back together again.

Remember what I said: “This is my broken body that I am giving up for your healing; always do this in memory of me!”

Brokenness does not mean defeat. It is a sign you can be put back together with God doing the repairs, “I didn’t have to walk that path. I did it for you!”

As the sun rises, the stone door has been rolled away:

“My soul awaits for the Light of you, Awaken, Arise and Be.”

Yeshua steps out and greets the dawn of this new day and so do you.

Here’s a question for you to ponder:

“Are you ready to come forward and be with me? All that is past is gone.”

Empty yourself so I can fill you!

 “Let’s meet in the breaking of the bread.”

Hidden Gems – Week 7

Calling in Time

“Just as you seek me in the breaking of the bread, I seek you!”

I call you out to identify your weaknesses; that which drags you down and keeps you in bondage and out of the Light.

I want you to share the journey with me; to Golgotha and on to victory!

I don’t see you as a victim but one who is an over comer of obstacles, looking for solutions in the depths of this walk.

You have a power, my power that supersedes anything that comes against you:

“He who is in me is greater than that which comes against me.”
