Good morning, DearHeart.
Do you ever feel like, as a child of the Most High, you are a renegade? Here you are, breaking new ground . . . no longer commonplace – because there is nothing common about this great ride. Yet, you find yourself rolling your eyes to the heavens, saying “Really, God?” You either want to kick yourself or curl up into fetal position thinking you may melt into a puddle. The wild and wooly west can’t hold a candle to this patriot life . . .
no google maps,
no sign posts,
On this holy roller coaster, you’re so off the map that GPS can’t even find you. And, then, if that’s not enough, in walks the angry antagonist who’s rush and thrill in life is to create a three ring circus of chaos every time you turn around.
Just be reminded … Jesus dealt with nutcases … narcissistic personality disorders, manic slanderers who held no remorse for their ugliness, their lies, and probably didn’t even feel a guilty conscience.
They murdered Him, mentally & physically, yet through the process, He was renewed.
There are times when all you can see is a darkness. You feel alone and naked and empty here. But, deep down, you know this – you have a Savior who never lets you go.
The world can dish out dirty games and nasty noises. But, you know a Place, you know a Voice, and, here you finally hear the genius of your Creator. Stay the course. Open to every nuance of your Father’s guiding heart, and you will find every curve of the road is leading you into renewal. Every blade of grass knows your step. He has directed every bit of sky to whisper His name to you, your personal Guide. This renewal of the Almighty God in you is as mysterious as it is brilliant. Brilliant Love is drawing you closer into Him, moving you forward, rooting for you … He has invested His life into you to bring about His glory through your every move. Mmm. Take that thought in a moment. You have been chosen for this. Critical conversations are designed for your good under God’s divine guidance.
There is a Holy scent to follow.
Every bird is singing something necessary to you. The wind blows to push you in the right direction, while the rain soaks you in Holy water. You are in His favor, Love. The moments you get to realize this are worth an entire lifetime, because the Holy Spirit speaks through you to be heard by ears that need Him. Everything is in your favor as long as your heart is set to learn Him, learn His ways. Really, it’s one thing to be alive… it is a whole other level to rise from the crazies, renewed in holiness.
“But now is the time to get rid of anger, rage, malicious behavior, slander, and dirty language….
Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him.”
Colossians 3:8, 10 NLT
