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

Follow Me, “I AM” the Way!

“Come follow me, I will give you Light.”

Every promise and every truth will now come to pass.

Just as the Red Sea parted with a strong east wind, I have cleared the way for you to move on, “Moses stretched out his hand over the sea. The Lord caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind and the waters departed.”

Each being, as she/he is, follows the path I have laid in front of them. By stepping out and not turning back to that which is familiar and embracing all that is to come; one will discover the path of true seeker of the Light.

Do not be despaired by those who do not or cannot understand your journey. They are not meant to follow your trail. Persevere in the way of truth, understanding and holiness.

Everything is now in place and ready to go. The timing is divine and perfect without missing a beat.

Jesus said, “I Am the Way, the Truth and the Light.”

You are now sent forth into the Promised Land, to continue the work without reservation or hesitation.

“Follow the Path, Follow the Light and Follow the Way!”

Persist and Insist

“Persistence will be enough to make him get up and give his friend all he wants.”

Is it bread or is it something more; something deeper you seek?

Have courage and faith; persist and insist, “Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes in the morning.” (Ps 30:5)

Wipe away all confusion and keep your eyes fixed on Jesus.

For the one who asks, always receives; Ask and it will be given to you; all of it!

The one who ‘asks’ will have an open door to pass through. Be persistent in prayer, do not stop praying.

Pray in awe of the Spirit at all times and on every occasion, “Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.” (Eph. 8)

Patience and perseverance overcome the greatest difficulties.

 “Your heavenly Father will give the Holy Spirit to those who ask.”

Where You Are!

“I will walk with you, talk with you, lift you up and direct you.”*

It’s not about where you are; it’s about where I want you to be. Placement, timing and perception are all necessary components in the life of one who is moving into a new modality of being or season.

Whereas, looking back over the years, one can see the key points or happenings in her/his life that changed the course or path. Now, we stand in that same plane of existence.

It is time to pick up the pace, in order to keep time and be; with all I have in store for you.

Change is necessary and can be unpleasant, but at the end of it all, there will be a purpose.

Keep stepping into your next mode or new life, while existing in your present situation. It is all good in the scheme of things.

As always, let go and be. Watch what I will do and you will find where you are, is where I want you to be!

“Stepping in and out with Christ requires one to get out of the way.” *

The Little Things

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

Where are we now? It is time to focus on the “Little Things” in life.

Take time to smell a flower, pull a weed, cut back overgrowth. Tend to the garden in your own yard. Make sure everything is ready for winters nap; prepare and wait.

This is also a time of introspection as you move about the garden. Pay attention to the “Little Things.” Watch for a butterfly or dragonfly; imitate the gentleness of movement.

Make sure your own steps are soft; barely noticed.

There is so much more to see and learn. Slow down your pace.

“Make us more aware of the goodness of God and how well he tends his garden.” (St. Therese)

*Awakening the Inner Ticker of Life, pg. 79

Stepping Into It!

“Here I Am, Lord!”

Allow the road to unfold in front of you. Your steps precede the miracle of being; in synch with God and all that is good in this life, “God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you.” (Ps. 64)

See each action as operating on my behalf; merging to the closeness of your creator. If one chooses to not support your journey as you step through the door, move aside.

“Stepping in and out with Christ requires one to get out of the way, so God can move us from darkness to light, despair to hope and unbelief to belief.”*

Your strength will come directly from God, flowing in and through you, “God who is wise in heart and mighty in strength.” (Jb. 9)

Push that door open. Step in and be. It’s all okay. There is so much more to do!

 “Be Open and Ready!”

Following the Call

“My job is to obey the will of the one who sent me and to finish the work he gave me to do.”

Jesus talks a lot about “the work, God’s work.” When the disciples asked him about having a bite to eat, his response was, “I have food to eat that you know nothing about.” We are now entering a new season.

Tomorrow, there will be a heavenly and earthly shift; some seen by the human eye and the rest experienced in the spiritual. It is time, Four more months and then the harvest. But I tell you, take a good look at the fields; the crops are now ripe and ready to be harvested!

What are you being called to do?

This morning during my special time of prayer, I heard these words, “Little Tree, Little Tree, go out and represent me”; a final line to a series of writings that will be published later.

I step into this new season with refined tasks; allowing me the flexibility to continue to follow the call and be with clarity and purpose.

St. Therese writes: “He guides and inspires me every month of the day. Just when I need it, a new light shines on my problems. This happens not so much during my hours of prayer, as when I’m busy with my daily work.”

This has always been true for me. In prayer, I ask. In the work or should I say in his work, I receive the inspiration, direction or answer on how to proceed.

“We are transported to another level of consciousness and fit perfectly into a mold that God crafted from our time of birth; filling us with liquid love and moving one into a new m ode of being.”*

Pressing Into It

“They were unharmed in the middle of the fire.” (Dn. 3)

Many times on his ministry journey, Jesus put himself in the middle of more than one situation; in spite of what was coming down the road, “God is greater than what resides in one’s heart.”

“The seed that is sown in good soil is like someone who hears the Word and understands it and that being bears fruit.” (Mt. 13)

When we struggle, we are called to put God in the middle of everything in our lives; our labor, our relationships, ministry, etc.

“When we pray, reflections and images often pass through our minds. We are surprised to find ourselves saying, ‘My thoughts are wandering. My heart is distracted.’ *

When we press into it, we have to put Jesus in the middle or nothing works.

“Yes, I am in the middle of it and so are you. You don’t belong in the middle, so get out.”
