‘Not that the troubles should come as any surprise to you. You’ve always known that we’re in for this kind of thing. It’s part of our calling. When we were with you, we made it quite clear that there was trouble ahead. And now that it’s happened, you know what it’s like.’ (1 Thessalonians 3:3-4 MSG)
Good morning, God’s Child,
Life phases fascinate me. I read a chart recently where from birth to death, a human life was broken down into 7 year phases and each phase chronicled and named.
Seven, a number noteworthy from the beginning as Our Creator formed the earth in seven days, then a new phase began.
As you and I and the Holy Spirit transit together through cycles in life, the layers of instinct, defense, protection, become more refined, more and more sheer, until the very soul begins to shine through. Think about it – consider your current life-phase. If attentive, we can sense and see the movement of our soul in an astonishing way. The senses awaken in mystery – from a place in the deeper woods of our being, air acquires a new taste, mist gives sight, flowers can be heard, south winds give off a new scent. DearOne, in each cycle with the Savior, He is growing us into our own new Spiritual phase, our own rightful shape as His heir. This place in your life has purpose.
Trust His ways.
