Never Lose Hope

Surgery Friday

Hello friend,
I’m having surgery Friday morning (at the time of this writing that is tomorrow). It is unexpected but is a step in my journey to getting oxygen to my brain. Oxygen to the brain can heal grey matter. Oxygen to the brain can seal up a blood brain barrier that is like a cyclone fence. Oxygen to the brain can help your hormones heal. Oxygen to the brain can help your brain sleep when it is time for REM.
Funny really … we don’t know how God is going to lead us until we move with Him. HIS leading to me is down a road I would not take with logic. But this last year when my body was shutting down and all my positive mantras and meditation pieces failed, you get to take action … with Him in other ways. We can be so convinced that the positivity tour is the only way – I have heard and soaked and understand. Then, we can lean into the voice of the Christ Who is the Way Who leads us into Life His way … HE loves for us to live. I believe HE loves to lead us through that inner voice…. and let me say that the Inner Voice is personal – its not a vibe – its not just a frequency. It’s the voice that breaks the cedars, causes mountains to melt like wax and gives you creative ideas that change society … or your family bloodline with a Word from Him that brings Life and Love to move cities into relationship with Him. It’s deep and its personal and its worth waiting for – its not always yes – it is sometimes no because what Father always just says yes to whatever a kid wants? Good Fathers have wisdom and timing and avenues for us to follow Him through…building our relationship and giving us Love along the way that causes our security in Him to be secure.

This surgery Friday has to do with sinuses and takes about an hour. If you are a praying person and not a preying person, I welcome thoughts of full recovery 🙂
Over the river and through the woods …this is the journey… sometimes into the desert and sometimes into an ocean but in Him and with Him, we are empowered to walk out our lives victoriously.
Will we sometimes be in pain? You betcha?
Will we sometimes feel clueless? Duh.
IS He faithful inside to lead and guide – oh yes..
So, bless you in your own river and your own woods and your own discovery tour in Christ to know Him.

Last thing… I was talking with someone today about His voice and His life and I discussed how God knows Who He is …that HE does not have an identity crisis and that if they…the person I was talking with did not believe in the Christ…that if they said something like this, “from my spirit alive in my Creator.” …that our God knew Who that was….and our Father would respond. Father is more than able to sync up with this friend and share His goodness and His love so that my friend knows how joined and all in HE has always been … 

Relationship friend.
Not religion.
We don’t have all the language perfect.
We don’t all have an academic theology in place.

Oh, but the #Christ? The One Who #dances with you from the inside – HE will never leave or forsake you..even on the bumpiest ride.
Until soon and much love…see you after #surgery Friday..

Voices in your Head

Hope says He is my security even when I run circles with Voices in my head. What about the voices in your head?
Oh, but it does not feel like that does not? Sometimes the storm inside is so full of voices and thoughts and ideas that you think you’re going crazy. Yet, there is One Who is not in favor of you going cray cray. Nope, They want you to lean into Them for security and stability. Father, Son and Spirit are standing strong and still as you run circles. Oh, They speak but They speak in calm not fury. Maybe you are so accustomed to the swirls that you don’t see or discern the Peace available in the midst of voices in your head.
It is like you feel attacked by birds of prey and you feel like there is no use to pray.
Yet, God is there – waiting to capture your heart and set you in a new way.
Stop and be still and hear His heartbeat instead.Do not be afraid of the voices in your head.

Until soon and here is a video to encourage you.

God Encroaches

Braver Satyrday -God encroaches boundaries. HE is much more interested in our freedom than us being comfortable with our privacy. Father wants to invade every part of us – spirit, soul and body. Furthermore, HE does this through community. You can run but you just cannot hide forever because God wants us free to know Him and be known by HIM AND to be known by others and for us to know others. What is Community? Communication plus unity. It is so powerful when you let the LOVE come through…even when you are not comfy in the process. Love, d

Priceless Process

Braver Wednesday – 1 Corinthians 5:8 God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us…WHOA that by itself is a stop in your tracks and think about how we don’t even show one another the time of day for goodness sake…but we have the ONE Who made us Who SHOWED US UPCLOSE AND PERSONAL HIS LOVE
1 Corinthians 5:9… much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath (the destruction that was to come in 70AD..when the Old Covenant was judged…you do realize God has already sent HIS wrath and that what Jesus said was finished was completed in 70AD?? Everyone should understand the historical aspect of God’s word and what happened)… 

1 Corinthians 10 …IF while we were enemies, we were reconciled, changed mutually and changed TOWARD GOD THROUGH the death of HIS SON much more having been reconciled – we shall be saved by HIS lifetime….so those who were delivered…..were preserved through HIS LIFE….HIS LIFETIME..HIS LIVING FOR US…..HE LIVES FOREVER! AND HE LIVES INSIDE OF US!! BAM…….never alone…..born again…born from heaven…..HE STEPPED IN YOU……NOT JUST BESIDE YOU..NOT JUST AROUND YOU..NOT JUST ON YOU…BUT INSIDE WHERE HE fills every nook and cranny with HIMSELF…………. 

1 Corinthians 11 … NOT ONLY THIS BUT we ALSO exult in God through our Lord Jesus Christ through Whom we have NOW RECEIVED THE RECONCILIATION…the exchange…the adjustment…the restoration to divine favor. WAIT!! We have already received???? SERIOUSLY??? HOW CAN THIS BE………OH…..COULD THIS BE WHAT THEY CALL GOOD NEWS????    

1 Corinthians 18 – so then, as through one transgression there resulted Condemnation – an adverse sentence – a judgment against all men – even so, through one act of righteousness, there resulted JUSTIFICATION – ACQUITTAL – REMISSION, REDEMPTION, DELIVERANCE FROM GUILT, DELIVERANCE FROM THE POWER OF SIN of LIFE to ALL MEN. YES…ADAM CONDEMNED ALL MANKIND……WITHOUT OUR PERMISSION AND WITHOUT OUR HELP AND BEFORE WE WERE EVER BORN HE BROUGHT DEATH TO US. YES…JESUS JUSTIFIED………ALL MANKIND… WITHOUT OUR PERMISSION AND WITHOUT OUR HELP AND BEFORE WE WERE EVER BORN HE BROUGHT LIFE TO US. 

 WHAT WILL YOU DO WITH THAT??? 

It’s a priceless process to grasp, receive and understand that HE already endured the price so that we can step into the priceless process. JUST RECEIVE. 

The journey to knowing HIM and being known by HIM …is priceless and so be patient with you through the process. 

I’m cognizant there is a bigger historical and spiritual context and a smaller context…but this was what Jesus was loving me with……hope it encourages you to be the new you…….that you already have become while on the priceless journey……to becoming more like Him. Love – d

Guard your insides 

Fearless Friday- what has been placed inside you? Honor? Healing? Abilities? Character? Kindness? Forgiveness?  Love? Let yourself be kept by God. #BEBRAVER and Guard yourself. Stay in agreement with His Spirit instead of your mindset. Love-d 

 

What Will You Do?

Motivated Monday -If you make a decision to be someone different but make no steps toward it – you may see zero change.

If you decide to do something different yet have no plan to move forward, you will go nowhere.

Take steps. Make a plan.

Be encouraged and watch 

What Will You Do?

 

 
Until soon- d

  

Read the Pages

Fearless Friday – be without fear today. 

Love yourself and others without fear… Don’t decide on that book until you read through all the pages…covers can be deceptive. People look one way but inside completely different story. Just be kind. 

 
Until next time,

Love-d

Quit Your Hatin!!

 Motivated Monday!  
It’s critical to have a good relationship with you and it cannot exist inside the context of hatred for self.
