“Since this is the kind of life we have chosen, the life of the Spirit, let us make sure that we do not just hold it as an idea in our heads or a sentiment in our hearts, but work out its implications in every detail of our lives. That means we will not compare ourselves with each other as if one of us were better and another worse. We have far more interesting things to do with our lives. Each of us is an original.”
Galatians 5:25-26 MSG
Good morning, DearOne.
All creation is ablaze in the glory of The Almighty!
Splendor. Even the scent of the dawn whispers His name.
Show me Your GLORY, Father!
Listen to what the words can’t say (but I’ll try to find words for!)
Jesus saw and knew that the entire creation was alive with His presence. His presence is open to anyone who dares to risk every form of comfort. . .
and social status. . .
and position to attain.
The risk of “Yes, Lord” is what enacts His presence.
His vision is clear: the entire task of each earthling . . .
yes, your task and my task, DearHeart,
lies in living out a life that allows
His FORCE, and
His INTENSITY, and
to FLOW into our ordinary reality.
And, when we begin to see our small “yes, Lord” as a hidden purpose of God Most High, He releases the most EXTRAORDINARY powers and possibilities, which Jesus understands MUST be released if His Divine plan for the world’s eternity is to unfold in its full splendor.
Ah, release your “yes” to your Creator. Boldly dare yourself to lay your risk out on His alter.
Here I am.
It’s You and me, Lord.
Take me deeper. Go.
I am Yours.
‘Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, we must also follow the Spirit.’ (Galatians 5:24, 25 HCSB)
