The Sun’s Up

Have you ever NOT wanted to open your door, check your mail or go outside when the sun’s up?
Maybe your personal insides just want to stay in the dark and relish the pain you feel?
HEY! That’s not good for you and I’m here to take you from choosing dark to life.
Now, you know that even if it is a gray gloomy day outside that there is a sun shining up in that sky right?
It is time to take authority over your own atmosphere my friend.
Imagine if you will a full on sun that is shining inside through your walls and into your hall and piercing into your roof. Embrace it. Let it pierce into your soul.
Decide now, the Sun’s up and you can be up too.
Don’t give up my friend.
Don’t turn to the left or right looking for it all to end.
Instead, let the warmth of the sun call you into life.
Let the reality of your darkness bring forth the light.
The Sun’s up – grab hold – take a deep breath.
Breathe in and out and then do it again.
I love you – maybe you forgot and think you are alone.
But it is a lie – hear my kind tone.
You are important.
You are alive on purpose.
Be Braver my friend – the Sun’s up and you can be too..

The Sun’s Up

Inheritance

When we err, Jesus is our forgiveness. When we are erred against, Jesus is our forgiveness.

When we choose not to forgive, we err and place the Law as our owner.

Forgiveness is our inheritance.

Today, let your past and their past go.

Receive today.

Receive now.

Let LOVE be your Owner.

Lights On

Lights On.
I remember once I was listening to God. I saw myself run into His Person and it was all dark. But, I instantly knew the lights were supposed to be on and I snapped my fingers and yelled LIGHTS ON! Then, the darkness was gone. Lights came on and I was with the Christ and we were one!
Now, why on earth would Father take me through what seems to be a strange pathway to understand the reality of light?

Now, I believe it was the part about running inside of Him that I was supposed to really see. Also, I was supposed to truly capture His authority inside me. Snapping my fingers in that place was not arrogant – it was God showing me that light is who HE already is and it was my own lack of belief that caused me to see dark instead of light.
WHOAH. I got it. Lights on.
I AM light and HE is light and together – the lights are always on regardless of how I see or feel – Lights On is what is real.

LIGHT Your Own Storm

My friend, inside each of us we must face the Truth and BE LIGHT in our own storm instead of continually looking for a light to help us through the storm.

But it takes great intention to decide you have the goods to pass through this storm.
BE Light. Be there for yourself.

Humiliation?
Disappointment?
Sickness?
Discouragement?
Denial?
Not good enough?
Feeling left out?
You are not a victim.
You are victorious.

Whatever your obstacle is, you can be your own light.
It might feel dark and you might feel incapable but go look yourself in your own eyes…into your own heart and own pool of swirling emotions.
Look past your hurt.
Look past your pain.
You HAVE to CHOOSE to see through what you feel into what is truth. These are different. One captures you and takes you into use and abuse you. But, Truth. Truth is different. Truth wraps arms around you and tells you not to the swirl and no to the confusion.
Truth is a Person and that Person says look into your eyes one more time – look past the swirl and look into the eyes of Truth staring back at you from your own eyes.
You are not alone. You WILL pass through this. Allow yourself to rise up into this new place of life and let Light be your Truth.

Be LIGHT in your own storm and love yourself as you do it.

Different

I’m not you. You are not me. We are different on purpose. There is a Process. The way we live, move and have our being will look different. We are not made from a cookie cutter. How we hear and how we see and how we approach life and we live it will be different.

The process of relationship with Him, self and one another. I’m pondering our differences as a human race as I think about how He lives among us too. Setting my mind on things that are above and not on things that are on earth is a process for me personally. Learning to listen. Inclining my ear to hear His thoughts and ideas about Himself, others, myself and life. Different.

It’s been a lifelong process of relationship – leaning His way and then stopping to find Him leaning my way. I’m thankful for every moment He has granted me the honor of living, loving, being loved. It’s a journey into Him and into His continual mercy, forgiveness & grace. The journey includes the mistakes not just the successes. I love the way Paul talked about counting it all as loss just to know Him. He knew the journey. We are in union with the One Who does not condemn our wrong turns. Instead He draws us further into His definition of Love. He also doesn’t put so much emphasis on our right turns either because it’s not about the right or wrong when it is about relationship. Prices Different.

Righteous is different many times than right. Deep inside my bones, it seems our emphasis is misguided. Love is the focus but what does that look like? I read a lot about Love. Yet, how we experience Love is a different matter. Experiencing the embrace He offers takes courage because His Love is unconditional and has no secret strings attached; it has no hidden agenda. HE already knows. Everything. Nothing is hidden from Him. Listening to Him. Listening to one another. Listening to what is said as well as what is not said. I remember listening to what my sister Mary Ann did not say. It held weight. It held depth. Loving to love. Being Loved. It’s an exchanged life. Just being. Loving. Being loved. Letting Him steer you personally as His hands, His feet and His heart in service in our private world as well as on the earth. Different.

Every person offers something different from Him and through Him while representing Him. I’m soooo thankful to Him for how He thinks outside the box to live as Love through us in our time here on the earth. What an interesting life. Sometimes I’m standing at a crossing wondering how to proceed. It’s a journey with Him. Sometimes I’m standing with a friend at their crossing while they wonder how to proceed. It’s not just you and not just me. It’s also with one another. It’s a journey into Him. It’s also a journey into one another. Process different.

Being Loved by Him and Loving one another. I’m in awe of His miraculous kindness. To let us learn how to be while He leads us into becoming. Be patient with yourself. Be patient with Him. Be patient with others. Loving as well as being Loved is a process. Learning how to love and learning how to be loved is a process. It takes time. That’s ok. Working through the process IS part of the journey. The revelation of His complete unconditional love for us IS part of the journey. The revelation of His complete unconditional Love for one another through us is also part of the journey. Private. Public. Different.

It’s living in Him, with Him, through Him and as Him…what a journey. What a process as we are different.Love-d

Process

We process from a different space. We process our pain from a different Place – the Person of Christ processes our hurt and pain with us – not outside of us. ***Get with Him. Get with Them. Get with the Source of our Strength – our Life – our Love – our Eternity – our Foreverness – get with THOSE WITHIN you and me and then LOVE those around us with power and strength and compassion and life and understanding. Process

THIS is our inheritance – we have confident expectation through living and dying that we live…and then we live again. Oh how this Reality is more real today. Will we settle in the pain? Process.

Oh, it will feel almost like you are betraying yourself or the one you want to honor but is it? Have we trained ourselves to grieve as the Law allowed? Have we trained our emotions to believe we must not only embrace sadness and depression but then remain there to honor the one who has gone from us or to honor those remaining? Emotions are strong. They want to keep us immature and in the will of the flesh and the will of the law of condemnation and sin. But is this our inheritance?

Pondering our loss today of our beloved brother and friend who lived to speak the Truth and to mature us in our races of Love and Being. I’m forever thankful for his life here with us and hope to encounter his life amongst us as I process.

HOPE Says I’ll Keep Going

My precious friend – Hope says I’ll keep going.

But what do you say? Are you willing to take one more step though you feel as if you do not have it in you?

I’m here to encourage you and tell you that yes you have it in you.
Though you may have dreams that seem to be on the back burner – rest assured – you are not on the back burner.
This is not false hope.
This is not false encouragement. You can move forward.
If you do not have energy to take a true step then mentally take a new step toward life and living.
Expect Life to meet you and expect love to greet you and expect yourself to keep going.
I know what it feels like and that one saying – I’ll keep going – has kept me in days when I felt it was not possible.
So, say it with me, “I’ll keep going.”
Until soon and much love – d

Coloring outside the lines

The only way to truly grow in your purpose is to begin coloring outside the lines.

Explore.

Discover.

Lean into a different space and trust.

It is a journey not a destination.

We forget because we want perfection.

We want others to think well of us.

We want our coloring book page on the refrigerator.

We want “them” to be proud.

So, we aim to please instead of aim to hear and have relationship.

We run from Truth and run to Information.

We are safer inside the lines where we are unnoticed and compliant when there is an adventure awaiting us both… out there… when coloring outside the lines.

Bless you friend,

I’m sure of God

I’m sure of God.
I did not always trust God. I was not always sure of God. I look back on life and can see all the ways He attempted to stop me, help me, redirect me, love me or give me wisdom. Man fell down on the job countless times yet every time, this God Whom I barely recognized was always rooting me onward. Being sure of God was the furthest from my mind. I had not had the deep realization of His life inside me even when I was in complete disagreement with His love, security or identity. As a matter of fact, I understand now that though my dad was not a good dad (though he did the best he could with what he knew) – God was still a good Dad to him AND to me and my family. You seen, religion will tell you God camps outside to make sure you get your act together in order for Him to be pleased. But, instead it is just opposite. HE camps INSIDE until you know Him and until you recognize His presence and until you can say with your own mouth – I’m sure of God.

What a Father. I was blown away when I realized how faithful God is – we have Father – Who is our Architect. We have Christ, His Son Who is Creator and we have Spirit Who leads us back into the Three Who live inside us the one. It is personal and it is public and it is real and it is authentic. No matter where you are – there they are.

You can be in the filthiest pig pen of confusion and unbelief and Those Three are right there with you prodding you into Their heart for you until you turn and get out of the mess. We are His and there is no running away. LOVE that about Them.Yes, you can say you are sure of God and I can say, I’m sure of God.

Hope says Confidence Won

Confidence Won!

Sometimes that is all we lack. We want to step into something different or new. We want to be “that girl” or “that woman” or “that success story” yet it feels fleeting. Why? Confidence wins and many times we feel like our lack weighs more than or strengths. Insecurities run us off the road and we wonder what truck hit us. What are we thinking? This I know – when someone or something or some circumstance is so glaringly pounding me into the ground and I feel insecure or feel as if I have no right to feeling like I’m safe – I can now stop and reevaluate. in this recalibration time, I figured it out.
When my insecurity buttons are being pushed – more than likely and almost consistently it is because that person I’m dealing with is being pushed around by their OWN INSECURITY buttons. Oh yes… this is my key and your key dear one. Confidence won.
Whose confidence?
First – the Confidence that the power of the universe – that One – Who created you and lives inside you is confident and already won our insecurity battle. That alone is gold. Second – when you can step into THAT GOLD confidence and that strong alignment of already winning – you can be the one who says YOUR Confidence won.

Is it a one stop shop and its all good and you can rock on? Not normally but this I know. The journey to finding your confidence is worth it. If you make it an adventure and not a destination – if you make it a trip of winning along the way instead of who wins the race – then you will ENJOY even the moments when you feel lack because that place inside you where HE lives will be the space where HE reinforces the Truth – His confidence won and yours does too.
Until soon and much love – d
