Steady As She Goes

This is for you, dear one, who may have believed the Lord for some great or small thing. What is it you hoped for? Was it not His dear will be done? Then hope on, my warrior, keep in mind that His will shall be shown in it's completion in His time.

Steady as she goes. Is it not the Lord Himself who tugged at your heart when you made that decision to go ahead with the plan? Was it not the thought that you would have more of Him? And what is keeping you from Him now?

Is it your lack of trust, that somehow something went wrong? Does trusting mean controlling?

Take a deep breath, trust, and keep trusting.

new day

I am determined to trust in the Lord. Determined. I heard Psalm 27 performed with a new musical interpretation. It was beautiful. The Lord is my strength and my salvation, whom shall I fear?
Take it to heart, have no fear.

Good Sabbath

As I worshipped today in church, I believed I was in the centered in the Lord. It seemed that He was surrounding me and He was in me in a symmetrical fashion. Equally on all sides. And I was in Him equally on all sides. I in Him and He in me. And I thought about the mirror in which we see darkly. And I realize that as wonderful as it was to worship and to have communion, it is a taste...a drop....a crumb. But how marvelous it is.

Shabbat Shalom!


This is the beginnng of Shabbat. I rest in you, Oh Lord. (Still no work) However, I am not leaning towards panic, but I remember the feeling of having money in the bank, or knowing that I have work. I can keep the feeling. It's really the trust that makes the difference.

So I rest in You, Oh Lord.

Neverending Mercy.

1 November

OH MY! No work, nothing on the horizon....but I am trusting in the One who said to 'seek ye first the kingdom of God and all these things shall be added unto you.'
Ok...but how do I know I am seeking first the 'kingdom' and what is the 'kingdom'?

Fine, well, the kingdom seems to be the realm of the King. And this usually brings me to the notion of a parallel universe. I have a choice. To look for the reality wherein exists the tree of life universe, and live there, or keep my eyes on the world that I see with my own eyes.

What does this kingdom look like? Right now, I can see the tree. During this autumn season, it's easy to imagine what the tree of life looks like, on fire, shimmering, beautiful, enchanting.

I keep looking, and I see my Lord, who I imagine with scars on His beautiful face, where they pulled his beard out and He was mashed into nothingness, for me, thank Him very much.

This is the righteousness that goes along with the realm of the King. The place where justice was met. My sin, your sin. Okay, I don't have to spend the day worrying about making things right. He already took care of that.

Anyway, I am a servant in this kingdom. I mean, I was purchased by this King of Kings, with His blood. So, I can't just go out and do my own thing. I am grateful. Full of thanksgiving.

And I look around and it looks pretty clear. How can I serve? How can I love? How can I bring Him glory?

I will do my best to serve you, Lord. I am so thankful! I don't have anything to hope in except you, and I pray for those who read this, that they might be blessed and encouraged, as well.
