December 14, 2016 will vs expectation 

Standard

God with us. Set your will in His. 

“When the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all the truth, for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak, and He will declare to you the things that are to come.” John‬ ‭16:13‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Good morning, Beloved. 

We focus on the Christ child. The birth we celebrate this season is the marking point of being shifted. If you dared to be so brave, you brave soul, you would admit that you, too, have felt Him stir. 

Allow Him to have His way, (as Mary did),

and will His way into being (like Joseph). 

The Holy Spirit comes and plants seeds of sparks, seeds of possible, not impossible…and He guides you and me with authority. 

Alone, I would go cold. 

Or, laugh you off at the audacity. 

Or, hide away. 

‘Expectation’ is not confirmation of what is to come. It’s not manifestation of an expected end. It’s a distraction, really. 

A distraction from today. 

But, ‘will’, ‘will’ is different. 

Because, will happens when you choose to fully show up in today, as Mary and Joseph did, you focus on the give, not the get. It doesn’t really matter that the meeting went off track, or that the outcome was … different (it created a new beginning). The net gain of a new perspective, of the shift is this:

show up,

shine,

give,

move on. 

Lay down the expectation, and feel the shift.

Anxiety drains away. 

Streaming calm fills in. Shifted. 

Expectations shrink me from God’s best for me. They weigh me down with worry and formulas and analyses, ‘if/then’, and ‘what/if’s’. 

But, God’s will be done … there’s my paintbrush,

my oil,

my secret potion,

my sanity. 

Like Mary and Joseph … I’m most interested the power of will, His planted sparks, His best that is lying in front of me. 

What expectations are consuming your shine? Let them go. 

Let them go. 

Wake up. 

Will His way in you. 

(Thy will be done). 

Go.
