November 20, 2014 beatitude ramble

‘“The poor in spirit are blessed, for the kingdom of heaven is theirs.
Those who mourn are blessed, for they will be comforted.’
(‭Matthew‬ ‭5‬:‭3-4‬ HCSB)

Hi, DearHeart – my mind is tumbling everywhere this morn. Perhaps Father God is speaking to you, too. Well, yes. Of course, He is.
The Sermon on the Mount came straight from the heart of Jesus.
Was Jesus happy?
Yes. (IMHO)
Because He ‘got it’.
He was the big picture. The Source of Healing delivers centered joy.
I dreamed last night about telling a man with his tie too tight that life isn’t only about following
rule-driven policy from 8-5.
Life is 24/7. It all overlaps. Every part feeds in to every other part. And, no matter what time of day – we are first and foremost responsible to our Creator for our behavior. He trumps everything.
Choosing to live Christ-centered is choosing to follow hard after the only ‘peace-kind’ of happiness available.
None of the beatitudes are natural. Every one comes to you and me as supernatural. To be infused into each is to start a walk with God Almighty that, along the way, turns into an intentional quest. It turns a corner where pure trust in our Creator has to be given over. The event becomes a choice – “Does this turn out alright?” – the only choice for an ‘alright’ outcome is to trust Him and move.
Action/behavior/spoken words = that is what “move” means.
Activate your behavior with Christ.
Move His direction.
‘Those who mourn’ – that is the same as ‘those with needs’. You have needs. I have needs. Every face in your life today … they have needs.
Walk down the halls today.
See a face.
See their needy face.
Pride refuses to admit “I have a need”, and it keeps us one separation line between the need and the only One who can turn the need into a place of comfort.
Are you in?
Will you admit need?
Will you see/hear/feel need around you?
Will you act?

Wake up.
Choose to act.
