After Listening, Reflect and Be:
“Don’t judge another for being what you are not, but show them who you are!”
“I am speaking directly to you!”
I have so much for you. Don’t you want it all?
Imagine what would happen if you paid attention.
Imagine if I told you everything you needed to know.
Imagine if you retrained your brain to think as I do.
Imagine, a world without fear or depredation, can you?
There is so much to the gift you cannot imagine.
“Everything in the present is a present!”

“One night I had a dream, I was walking along the beach with the Lord.”*
The places I spiritually interact and walk with Yeshua are in my garden or at the beach. Yesterday, during meditation, I was walking on the beach and I immediately, I thought of the prose, “Footprints.”
I first received a copy of this famous text, in a handwritten letter; given to me by a dear friend, years ago, when facing some obstacles in my life. I consider it one of my greatest treasures. In fact, I took it in and out of the envelope so many times, that I tore the envelope a bit.
In the midst of moving a few times, I lost the correspondence. I tore my home apart looking for it and was so distressed when I couldn’t find it. Several years passed and I considered it lost or accidentally destroyed.
Last year, while going through some books in my office, the letter fell out of one of my books. It was still in the same envelope with the cover letter from my friend and the copy of footprints.
I went through those books a dozen times. I knew it had to be an angel or one from beyond who put that letter back, because I needed to read it again. I was facing another major shift in my life. God always gives us what we need when we need it.
As we made our way down the beach, there was a sand dollar in the sand. Jesus said, “Pick it up and thrown it back in the water.” We walked a bit more and there was a snail shell. Again, he said, “Pick it up and throw it back in.” Next there was a small rock and I threw it back in the water. We kept walking and I noticed a large boulder on the beach; oh boy!
There are many obstacles we face in this life. Sometimes there are blocks that cannot be moved, no matter how hard we try. A friend told me years ago, “Patty, God will move mountains, but you better bring the bull dozer.”
Jesus said to me, “If we both push this, it will go into the water.” Faith was the bull dozer and we rolled the boulder into the sea.
One of my favorite passages about moving mountains comes from Mark 11:
Jesus said, “Have faith in god. Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘be taken up and thrown into the sea’ and does not doubt in her/his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for her/him.”
“It was then that I carried you.”*

“Receive my power from on-high.”
The Light of Christ starts as a flicker of a flame, just behind the heart; powered by the Holy Spirit.
The Light continues to flow and grow; expanding out to reach every area of the body.
We can, in turn, send this out to others; our abode, community, etc.
“Out of the imaginations of the heart come the issues of life.”
“I now expand rapidly into the Divine Path of my life.”
I have opened the door and the path, my path is at your feet. You cannot step where I have not been, not now.
“We walk on fertile soil. Now it is time to tend to our sacred plot while waiting for the precious Fruit of the Spirit to be nurtured by the early and latter day rain.”*
This time we have together now is precious; too special to waste. Everything is falling into place, like a log floating down the river looking for a space to call home. Are you ready to experience the space you call home?
Leave the plans of your life in the hands of one who can handle it, the Divine Designer, God and follow the path laid at your feet.
“The ground I am on is holy and whole!”
“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.”
