We have a problem.

Listen guys. I am in New York and was caught in the middle of a myriad of men and women picketing against white supremacy (not for it) and holding signs for only one group of women- #blacklivesmatter (for it). We have a problem.

what makes anyone’s color better than another? You and I were both made inside a woman’s belly. ALL colors of humanity start out the same size my friend- the same size. What makes a black or white woman’s life LESS IMPORTANT or MORE IMPORTANT than an Asian or Native American woman OR any other woman on the planet? All lives matter yet we have a problem.

If you or I see the color of our skin as more or less significant than the color of someone else’s skin then … we have a problem. We are blinded by self and we will only see ourselves because we have forgotten.

It’s level as we are born the same – all the size of a grain of rice! Its level when we die and ALL our skin no matter what color goes bye bye. All that happens in between is part of our personal story. I know a man whose story blew me away. He believed in you and me. HE Himself created us in His own image. He lived on the planet as you and me. He died as you and me. He was buried as you and me. He was resurrected as you and me. But we have a problem. We have forgotten … that it was level at the foot of the cross and it was level in the resurrection and we were all there with Him through it all.

Love is all that’s matters now my friend and we each get to choose for ourselves. Lets quit the blame game and play the “we are the same” game. No longer do we have a problem because Love won …

Vital Insight

It sometimes takes years in the journey…to live, to learn, to experience life and living.

Some want to usurp the journey and bypass the process. Yet it’s in the process you see the beauty, the raw revelation of relationship in Christ.

Through the pain and broken heartedness I gained vital insight in Christ. Did I enjoy the hurt? Of course not. Yet God lived through it all. God draws and divides truth from lies, good from evil, love from fear. It’s been beautiful and though there may be some things I would do different- I have respect for the process and journey. Christ in me always lived and loved me as I discovered who He was with and in me. Love-d

Death in Disguise

The struggle with thoughts of #death disguised as #grief is real. Turn your thoughts to life even if it’s one inch at a time… it’s possible for light to turn on in a #dark place. Give yourself permission to live. Love-d

Right isn’t Righteous

Right. We want to be right.

We fight to be right.

We want a right to our opinion.

But right isn’t always righteous.

The term dogmatic in my line of work means a rigid stubborn opinion. It’s normally rooted in a belief system through trauma along with emotions like anger, fear and pain. These emotions can explode when a person feels powerless to control or change themselves or others. Conversely, emotions can cause someone to shut down when feeling trapped or scared too.

What to remember is that trauma comes with an agenda to protect itself. So, if you encounter yourself or another person blowing up or cussing at you, you will need to love that person. And with great intention, see yourself and them on the same cross with Jesus. Forgiven.

Intention isn’t emotion. It’s purpose. Intention causes you to grab hold of the cross and the power of resurrection for you AND for them.

Love is always part of the equation. The other part of the equation is to remember that it’s not about you. The enemy purposely attempts to turn people against one another. If you pray together, you’ll only stay together by forgiving and forgetting any err. Humility will have to be your mantra if you want to move away from feeling angry or powerless.

Remember that we are in Christ and we get to reinforce His victory.

Love-d

WALK AGAIN

WALK AGAIN. Be encouraged. Maybe you once lived in low self esteem. Maybe you do now. Maybe you were afraid of your own shadow once too? Maybe you are confused now and don’t know what to do. Be encouraged. There was a time when I thought I would not walk ever again. I thought my life would simply remain in my own self made darkness. But God. God IS for you. Don’t give up on Him or on you. This WILL pass and you WILL WALK AGAIN!!

Simmer time

SIMMER TIME. Are you tired of being on the back of the stove? Have you been waiting for someone else to give you permission to live? It’s time. You’re ready. Take off your own lid. Taste your own soup. Add some salt if you need it. Get off the fearful burner and get moving. Maybe you NEEDED to simmer a while. But now go burn for the world to see His goodness. Simmer time is over and it’s time to eat.
