Standard

Good mornin’ DearHeart.

Big breakthroughs get big applause in today’s world. We often fail to notice the baby steps,

breakthroughs,

or earnest “I tried” but

slipped,

tripped,

and fell flat on my face.

Yet it takes shocking bravery to be at mid-expedition. The place that it is brave ‘just to be there’. Day one of a new thing. Or, in the middle, clawing through.

Maybe you’re in transition. Perhaps you are in

study-mode,

growing a new business,

writing lesson plans,

recovery,

or getting your feet back under you from a necessary divorce.

These are tough times …

times when sharks circle your john-boat,

any which way you step-there’s manure,

your shoes are on the other side of a blistering-hot asphalt lot,

hail beats down,

the moon stays full forever,

your boss changes the game plan, your mom calls delivering “the lecture”,

and your anxiety level explodes for fear that you may age in misery with dreams that never got their chance.

What if you shifted your perspective … brought the Holy Spirit in to circle you with white light. What if you got still enough to feel His light being pulled through you at this very moment?

These are the times we need to ask- to notice – a full surround of His Holy presence.

Hear His applause.

See His power-flow from this radiance in this midstream.

These are the times we must allow ourselves to love and be loved

through the sweat and exhaustion. These are the times when we must cheer for what we’re made of. . . our mettle … you know the source of that, right? What makes us stand is the surround and the filling of the Power of God Almighty who continues to give us strength to move. This “in-midstream” process is the time that we celebrate His Presence and the stubbornness He delivers in us to keep upright and keep us lurching and wobbling forward.

Lately, I’m hyper-aware of shifting perspective. In His strength, you and I have total control over it. Please give yourself the benefit of true perspective. Do not allow the enemy to plant seeds of self-rejection for “not being there yet.”

The One that designed your “there” is

utterly,

entirely,

and completely for you.

Take in His glory here.

You are exactly
