The Chalice of Love and Goodness

What is it that you and I love most in life? Where our heart is, there shall our treasure be discovered and found. There shall the very declaration of where we put our focus, form our thoughts and thus become the words that we find ourselves speaking.

This is what we end up manifesting in life, do we not? What are we giving our passion to? What fuels your passion in this very moment and hour? Are you in fact even passionate about anything in particular? Are there times and perhaps it is now where you may be feeling a sense of being dead to life or maybe your life is lacking a vibrancy that was once present or one that you know has or longs to come forth with at least a greater sense of fullness?

“I know your works. You have the reputation of being alive, but you are dead. Wake up, and strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your works complete in the sight of my God. Remember, then, what you received and heard. Keep it, and repent. (Revelation 3:1-3 ESV)

I reference this in kindness as a way of remembering. Perhaps we go about to take back territory in our spiritual life to then only release it once again unawares. Don’t go back to sleep my friend; be aware of the tactics of the adversary of your soul who seeks to kill, steal and destroy. One must remain vigilant and cannot afford to become careless. As I stated yesterday in this blog; passion and practice calls us consistent attention.

“Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life, is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever”. (1 John 2:15 ESV)

Is the Father’s love prevailing in your heart and life right now? It is ever present and never wavers or fails but are you embracing it?

See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. For this is the message that you have heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. Are you intentionally keeping yourself in the love of God?

With the love of God, comes the bringing forth of the fruit thereof which is the “charis” or grace of the goodness of God. This comes into play in the bearing of His presence or His glory. Are we truly possessing our vessel in the holy presence of God? “Charis” defined is, grace that which affords joy, pleasure, delight, sweetness, charm, loveliness, grace of speech, goodwill, loving-kindness, favor of the merciful kindness by which God brings the attributes of the person of Jesus though into our expression thereof of the goodness of God. I don’t know about you but I so long to exude such from my being and for this to be shed abroad into the hearts of those whose my life touches. One who truly and openly displays and lavishes upon others the fruits of the Spirit. This display of love is truly infectious is it not? It takes considerable resistance to overcome and push away it’s presence.

A favorite musical composition I am deeply touched by is “Ubi Caritas” (“Where Charity Is”) which has evolved into many iterations and compositions. It’s message is as follows; where charis and love are, God is there. A bonding exists between the love of God and “charis”. It is the glue by which all consists in God’s creative plan. I’d like us to get this picture into our hearts.

The love of Christ has gathered us into one.
Let us rejoice in Him and be glad.
Let us fear, and let us love the living God.
And from a sincere heart let us love as one.

Where charis and love are, God is there.
At the same time, therefore, are we gathered into one:
Lest we be divided in mind, let us beware.
Let evil impulses stop, let controversy cease.
And in the midst of us may there live Jesus; His heart, life and breath.

Where charis and love are, God is there.
At the same time we see that with the saints also,
His face in glory, O Christ our God:
The joy that is immense and good, unto the
World without end. May it be so!

In Jesus we are “the salt” of the earth. Has the saltiness lost it’s savor? This is a question that we might ourselves right now. May our passion and practice bring forth from within our being an expression of the very best that we can be in and through Jesus.

“The Trial and Testimony of Life”

Cast your bread upon the waters for you shall see it after many days. These words in today’s accompanying picture ring so true in me at this stage in life. True and steadfast is God’s promise unto me. I can hold true and align my life with His promise. Even though my body fail me over and over and time and time again. This morning in the midst of a constant rise and fall, I remain committed to stand faithful to His promise that the work He has begun in me will be completed in and by His hand. He is faithful to complete that work. Even though some of the people in my life let me down and circumstances come to kill, steal and destroy what I left in my hands to work with, my candle is not yet extinguished. “Faithful is that calls me who also will do it”.
(1 Thessalonians 5:4).

Praise the LORD! For it is good to sing praises to our God. Sing to the LORD with thanksgiving. He builds up, He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. He is abundant in power and his understanding is beyond measure. So we can thus glean from Psalm 47.

What does He take delight in when it it comes to essence of your life and mine?
His delight is not in the strength of the horse nor his pleasure in the legs of a man, but the LORD takes pleasure in those who fear him, in those who hope in his steadfast love. (Christ in me; the hope of glory. I will glory only in the Cross). I choose to die daily and continually to all else.

He called and commissioned me to first and foremost preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. What else matters? All else in life serves around why I am here. How I show up is an illustration of such. I pour the the Living Word of God into the lives of others. This be my livelihood; my living hope. What is my life but as a vapor that appears but for a short and time and then to vanish away? For all my days are passed away: spending my years as a tale that is told. The days of my years may be threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labor and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and I fly away.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” (Psalm 90)

They that go down to the sea in ships; And occupy their business in great waters; These men see the works of the Lord: and his wonders in the deep. (Psalm 107:23)
Captivity in disease or adversity can be as dangerous and alarming as a dreadful tempest at sea; with a most natural and striking description of which we are here presented. Life can rise on the highest wave only then to be engulfed in it’s aftermath.

For he commands, and raises the stormy wind, which lifts up waves thereof.
Mounting up to the heavens, going down again to the depths; soul is melted in trouble. Reeling to and fro, and staggering like a drunken man, at my wit’s end,
I cry unto the Lord. And then and suddenly;

He brings me out of my distresses. He makes the storms to calm, so that the waves thereof be still; for a moment.
I am glad for “a moment” of quiet and calm. He offers a haven. Yet life cycles does it not in rise and fall? Yes, my life is as the rolling sea and I choose to ride the waves inspite of what it may seem. He is faithful. It does not matter what my five senses observe. It does not matter what I feel in my emotions.

Steadfast and faithful may I remain from commencement unto conclusion, unto the very end as I cross the finish line and draw my last breath in this race. I look unto my Jesus and into His eyes my gaze be affixed. In that day, Him I shall “fully” behold and see. As for now, the time being; I am simply a grandpa who has been so shown my Heavenly Father’s heart in such abundance that if if nothing else, may the remainder of my days serve as an example of a “father to the fatherless”. My charge and cry shall be “Give me my mountain”!, just as it was with Caleb of old. My promise land rests in “the unseen”. That is true faith that pleases God.
Faithful to the little and few placed into my stewardship and trust; great is the reward in the end. I live solely for that which is Eternal. Glory be unto God!

“The Drawing Call of Matchless Love”

I am reminded in Scripture that young men have visions, and old men have dreams. I am not quite sure where I fit, as Jesus came into my life during the late 1970’s. I have been caught up into both in recent months. Age-wise I’m sort of in the middle so it’s God’s call as to which, when, where and with whom application plays out. God never answers “how”. So just say “yes”. In my humanity it often leads me to be quite beside myself. I may come across as a bit “eccentric” to some at times. I’m okay with that. In the light of Jesus’ presence the need for man’s affirmations and recognition in me are being put to death increasingly at the foot of the cross. I crucify them continually. In humility, there is a call arising for me to speak/write and bring out in music what now must be spoken/written/sung. The Master calls me to such.

I have a present sense of urgency that there is more, beyond all that I presently know and understand, that I must yet apprehend. Not from outside myself, but from within, the unfathomable and unsearchable riches of Christ. In His mind. Christ in me, the hope of glory. Seated in heavenly places while walking out earthly steps.

I began to write from what I have been receiving at the first of this year here on this blog. I have drawn from nearly my entire life experience to portray on this page in response to what I have been receiving. In addition to my response, there enters into the picture, my reactions when my flesh hurts and grapples with what God asks of me. I will not ask of anyone what I am not first willing to first walk out myself. I have been asked to write, tell and share an unprecedented story of an ordinary man that has been given an extraordinary assignment to be put on open and transparent display before the eyes of the world as an open book to known and read by all whose hearts are open to a drawing call from the Spirit of God as a voice crying into the wilderness of the hearts of many. To come away in an unprecedented way, back to the Father’s heart and into the embrace of the One to whom to we the bride, truly belong, because His love has infinitely purchased us and there is the freedom of of a love within that relationship, that exceeds all loves.

So now it is time for me to start releasing in small bits at a time what the bride is being asked to awaken to, within the call from her Groom.
I sense and what I seem to be hearing God saying is, that He is doing a quick work to “make ready” a remnant that will connect with and to, in their hearts a call, to come apart, in response to a deeper call, that is unprecedented in the history of the human race. Not necessarily “new” in the physical sense since God’s Word being Eternal has always been and ever shall be, but a “newly experienced” one in the heart.

On a level where deep calls to deep, in unprecedented measure, penetrating to and dispersing the ordinary thought train of man, there arises a new breath of expression of the Bridegroom to His bride. A call to come away. So let us now focus solely on Jesus heart cry to his bride right now that there would be found, those of us who would begin the breathe the words “Draw me after You”. (Song of Solomon 1:4) There are three aspects of response to Him; this being the first.
“Draw me after You”. May this be the expressive response in the life you live as you breath this expression in and then back out; reciprocally in unbroken continuity. Call and response in reciprocal harmony sets the rhythmic heartbeat for heart to heart exchange of life. This is love from the Father’s heart.

Here a courtship commences with those of you who hear His call; simply come. Many are called but few chosen. God doesn’t do the choosing, but you and I do. It is the level of hunger that draws you and I into Him and this determines the measure of our “Yes” to Him. “Few there be that find or discover this” were Jesus’ words. A rare treasure. I don’t say this to discourage you but to open up very being to be more hungry for Him. Any of us can enter this; however how many are willing to pursue with relentless unprecedented passion? Jesus is “that jealous over your love”. Yet He awaits even as we affix and focus our love upon other points of preference. He understands, yet longs for us to “awaken fully unto Him”. I assure you this is a real place. I’ve tasted of His love and nothing can begin to compare.

“The Joy set Before Me”

“In looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God”, let us take notice what His source of endurance rested in. It was “the joy set before Him” that stemmed from His love for you and I.
(Hebrews 12:2)

You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness beyond your companions.” (Hebrews 1:9)
This is what the Father declares of His Son.

What is this oil of gladness? When Jesus went to the Cross he took upon Himself all of our pain, shame, sickness, disease, infirmity, and anything that would keep the fullness of life from being our portion in every given moment. He covered “it all” so that we don’t have to. Can you even begin to conceive what level and measure of love encapsulated and enveloped the sacrifice He made for you and I? I don’t believe any one of us can begin to grasp the magnitude of this. Is this perhaps why we tend to shield ourselves from fully receiving His love and make excuses as to why we can’t approach Him fully with “open face”? “Being open faced” is a subject I cannot even begin to touch upon in this moment. It is however part of the assignment here in this blog and we will get there, however not at this moment.

We somehow believe that we are “not enough” or unworthy because of what we have done or not done in this life? Any thought that a single one of us is “not measuring up” is simply not true at all. God’s word says everything contrary to such notions. In repeated encounters with my Jesus and as I have walked a fine line between death and life as He asked me to repeated times, I have looked into His face and into His eyes and have witnessed the level of love and compassion and I am still alive and drawing breath because He has a measure of the expression of His love that He longs to bring through me somehow. Why else would I be spilling out the details of my life on this page day after day? Why would I risk humiliating myself totally if it were not for the fact I have nothing to lose. No reputation, no image to lose, no thing to hang on to. Being of no reputation, nameless and faceless; I surrender that at the Cross. I died to that and continue to die to it every moment because the human aspect of my flesh wants to pick it back up again. But I can’t because I laid it at his feet at the foot of the cross.

After what He sacrificed for me at the cross, what can I even begin to give back to Him in return that could even begin to compare? Nothing; absolutely nothing; other than the life and breath I have left in me. So I lay it all down and I cannot walk an ordinary and mediocre experience in my agreement to “yes” fully to Jesus. Remember, I was a prodigal that walked away for nearly 20 years. I can’t forget that! I am fully forgiven much, yes most certainly and have fully received this. Therefore I love much! I have counted the cost of the road ahead of me knowing it does and will cost me everything. God knows I have certain desires as does any man by nature, but I choose to put these aside for the excellency of knowing my Jesus more fully and intimately. It is the hardest choice to make and stick to; believe me. My flesh fights that tooth and nail every day. He has away of meeting my desires in ways I could never imagine even as think I know best sometimes.

My heart weeps and breaks that there are those who are brothers and sisters of mine in this world that do not yet seek the pursuit of this level of intimacy with my Jesus. Intimacy = into me see. Are you inviting Him into you to intimately see? What are you afraid of? What holds you back? Are you at all desiring to enter into His heart and gain sight beyond the comprehension of your current state of thinking? For a lack of vision people perish. Do you have any concept how much that saddens His heart over those who are yet blind and veiled to His heart? You are here but for such a short time. In Jesus your value is infinite. Our time is so very short. I lost two brothers in the faith in the last two days who both carried a testimony that inspired in me something greater beyond where I am. I realized the brevity of life with new voracity that propelled me to renew my life as a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God which is my reasonable service.

Where is your heart right now? I shall continue to stir up a catalyst for your faith to arise. I don’t know if you are hearing my message or even listening into your heart. Knowledge of the results is God’s business however; I merely deliver the messages that He gives me. If you would like me to pray with you in addition I am offering that to you now, here until my website is up and running. It is a tough call for us to get past our obstacles; I know. However none of need try to walk it on our own. So my email is there below if you wish. Just please don’t throw your life carelessly away into auto-pilot believing it will all just pan out. God does not work that way. It rests on you and I to discover and walk out our own unique divine story. However we are to do so “together”. He believes in you that you will desire to run your race well and finish the same and so do I. I care and endeavor to love from His love.

Passionate Loving Relationship Seeks Fullness

What is it that brings you into a deeply intimate passionate loving relationship that satisfies fully to the very depth and core of your being? If you feel you already experience such and have found it to meet the need of your heart in a relationship, then consider yourself to be very blessed. Few of us discover such with another person. Namely because on the human level another person is simply not capable of offering such to another as to “complete” the fullness that the heart seeks.

God promises us that our hunger and thirst for such shall be met. “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. (Matthew 5:6)

Some of the most evocative words in the Old Testament come from Ecclesiastes 3:11:

God has made everything beautiful in its time; also he has put eternity into man’s mind, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.
What does this mean, that God has put eternity in man’s mind and yet has withheld from us the vision of what he has done from everlasting to everlasting?

Restlessness and longing are universal traits of the human heart. God has put eternity in our hearts and we have a continual longing within our hearts to reach for a measure of expression greater than ourselves to meet us in life. Some of us may have tried to satisfy it with scenic vacations, accomplishments of creativity, stunning cinematic productions, sexual exploits, national sports extravaganzas, hallucinogenic drugs, daring adventures, managing business with excellence, etc., etc. But the in most cases longing remains unfulfilled.

The grass is never greener on the other side is it? We drink at broken cisterns. We eat bread that does not satisfy. And the words of C.S. Lewis ring more and more true. He said,

“If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.”

I believe this man had gained some insight. Do we not truly seek a kingdom that is indeed beyond this world? We are destined for a kingdom made not with hands and one that is governed by the design of the one who made us and wrote our life story for us to walk out, to therein discover the loving fullness of passion and purpose that our heart truly seeks.

What we desire is for Heaven to be touching Earth. Is this not the way God wired us; to perhaps lead us first to His heart?

The apostle Paul put it this way; “indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.

Now here is our answer encapsulated that perhaps we are looking for. That I may “know him” and the “power of his resurrection”, and may “share his sufferings”, becoming like him in his death, that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead.

So our ultimate focus aught to be to “intimately know” Jesus. To allow His strength to always and at all times lift us up so that we may rise above our own strength and means and depend on and prefer “His” presence to envelope the frailty of our own self dependence rather than relenting to fall back on our own devices. To allow Him to bring us through process fully in the sufferings of this life. No longer “con-forming” to our devices through being solely dependent upon societal resources but rather allowing Him to “trans-form” us through the rule and reign of His kingdom principles that will perhaps take us into being a better version of our current selves. We were all destined for something more than we can imagine or think.

I will go more into further exploration of this process most likely in the next blog post where we can take a look at how we may “get there” in our passionate pursuit of love that is seated in excelling in our divine destiny. May our pursuit therein be an eternal one.

Elevate in The Advantage

Yesterday has been for me a beginning of a major turning point in my life.
As health challenges threaten to stand in the way of that which
God says is the way that I am to take I choose to not allow that to shut down life as He has promised that I am to walk out. I chose to not let disease keep me from living life to the fullest extent possible; and with God ALL things “are” possible to those who believe and take Him literally at His Word.

I do not care what my body “seems” to be saying to me in given moments. It does not matter what I feel or what I see if that sight and those feelings are not reflecting peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Anything that does not reflect such has no place in my expression of life and can longer matter. If it no longer matters then it cannot materialize or manifest. The only that does matter is what the Words of God have declared of me and have spoken of me. These symptoms of disease shall not prevail and in the mighty name of Jesus I have commanded them into remission to more return again ever. Disease bows now in Jesus name! This body is to fully align with the Word of God. So I will take one step after another and I WILL NOT stop walking.

So in Christ Jesus I place my hands upon the Potter’s wheel and He reshapes out my broken and shattered dreams and vision fashions them into something brand new.
All of my days are held in Your hands and crafted into Your perfect plan.
You gently call me, into Your presence guiding me by Your Holy Spirit teaching me
to live all of my life through Your eyes.
I’m caught up in and fully enveloped in Your Holy calling, setting me apart for a unique expression of the love and Character of my Lord and Saviour Jesus.
I know You’re drawing me to Yourself and am fully trusting You to lead me in every minute way in which Your Holy Spirit does have full sway and You every Word become my say and mainstay. I shall not be moved or swayed from your very presence.
I disregard whatsoever the gates of hell and the enemy of soul shall try to declare or bring against me. The darkness no longer has any say because the light in me dispels that darkness. At the mighty name of Jesus the darkness trembles as it is pressed into obscurity. I know in what and where I stand in Jesus mighty name!

“You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet.
“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
(Matthew 5:13,14)

Blessed are the meek, for these shall in their humility inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied and fully filled with the manifold presence of the Risen Saviour.
Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. Walking in light always.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons and daughters of our Most High God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. In this world there shall be trouble but be of take joy that in the fact that in Christ Jesus “I am already more than a conqueror”.
Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account; declares Jesus;Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven,therein are your names written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. So they persecuted the prophets who came before us.

“The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!
(Matthew 6:22,23)

Jesus says” upon this Rock I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it”

So in the Potter’s hand I set my hands to the wheel to build. Despise not the day of small things for in the hands of the Father’s our praises rise like a weapon in His hand to vanquish the vehicle and building blocks of the darkness. They crumble and fall like dominoes. Their days are numbered and are fleeting and fading. Just remember that God said a day with him can seem as a thousand years because only man measures time the way they do because in their folly they thought they knew better than God. So keep your eyes on the prize. It is a race of persevering process and NOT a timed contest. Patience in the process, formulating excellence in the Knowledge of Him who has called us to glory (goodness) and virtue.

As to putting your hand to the plow; nobody ever does it for you however they are there to do it “with you”.
Life is all about relationship/partnership.
We really have to lay that down that “us and them, me and mine” separation mindset friends, if we ever anticipate succeeding in life.

“The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!
(Matthew 6:22,23) Keep that eye centrally focused on the One who has already done and paid it all for us; Jesus.

I had it all backwards. Now new choices with new model.

I’ve been working way too hard trying to try to “make life work”. I let go of that and now choose to work smarter. Let life work for me. God is for me so who can be against me? I choose to have no enemies; not in people. I can only but choose to love no matter what.

I surrendered the backwards model that does not work

Now I walk the story God wrote for me.
My world is full of people to love. So what is there to wait for?
I have written my story out in clarity and transparency so it would be fully visible.
Now watch a walk by faith unfold in a new story and that is what I have been endeavoring to share with you these first three months of this year and now have been asked to assist in getting us “unleased” into living fully.
This unfolds as I embrace and practice living smarter and living from God’s Love; fully visible. This is why I came into this life. This is now clear. A fully surrendered life is my focus. Commissioned to love and serve people fully.

This is what is behind what I write and the foundation that I am building opening to partner with others who are laying hold of from the same perspective.
I am a story, storyteller and storybook. Enter the pages.
I am highly passionate over practicing this all fully out in real life.
You can too. I not waiting for a healing; the healing is already done in Jesus’ finished work on the cross.

That brings up another point. Life is not compartmentalized.
There is one life consisting of faith, work, play, all things lived simultaneously in conjunction all wrapped up in one open to be shared with everyone. All are invited.
Whether they accept is of course their choice.
Like many of us I had the story backwards.
So now the record is being set straight.

I am an Eleprenuer reaching out to Entreprenuers, and to anyone with a desire to Elevate their bodies into a happier state of being. If you are fully Elevated in body you have all the drive, inspiration and capacity to go with your highest of passion and “build it” and others will be drawn to you and you have the most spendid opportunity to pour and multiply the same into them. As in the field of dreams; “build it and they will come”. I can share with you what you can receive, run with, and go and live an Elevated life to the fullest. This is uniquely tailored to you!
You want to how I am doing this?

You can stay tuned and on board, through my page, in social media and here on my blog. I’ve bundled all that I do into one versatile package that in some way can be augment anyone’s life plan. A lot of vision and love of some of the most inspired people on the planet have gone into this. New keys are being implemented daily. All designed to pour into you the tools of Elevated health and a multiplication factor that can inspire you to be the best version of you that you can be.

I’m part of a beautiful growing and loving family with a most auspacious and ineffeable heart for your ultimate success in life. Follow the posts or you can inbox or email me if you would like to know more.

True Repentance

I will stand upon my watch and station myself on the tower. May the tower be a place of security. May I exercise due diligence to see that my gates are secure.

I will see what the Lord shall say unto me and what I shall answer when I am reproved.

Reproof is not to bring shame or blame. It is to gently adjust or redirect my course in kindness and mercies for the sake of my well being.

For the past two days I took the reproof from the Lord as harsh critical judgement. I was actually judging myself in so doing and being my worst critic, I beat myself up with thoughts that made me start to believe I was less than or not enough to measure up to God’s call on my life. All I could look at is all the baggage still clinging to me from my past and how could that ever could be eroded away, dissolved enough so that God could through me minister his love, grace and mercy and pour into others in their time of need? So all I could focus on for two days was the extent of my half-empty state instead of seeing I was half full of God’s grace, goodness and a candidate for being a vessel that had room to be filled up in the glory of God’s Presence.

So this morning I choose to focus on His goodness in me and where He may like to direct that today and into whom. A much improved outlook. So He shows me what that potentially may look like. I will write that vision and as it seeks to take form I will make it clear and plain as I take the next step. This will not be held in expectation based upon my self imposed expectations, confined and constricted within limitations but rather in the anticipation that expansive potential awaits within the premise that my God is greater than all of collection of points of my weakness that may seem to stand in my way. His strength is made perfect in my weakness.

I will present the vision He gives me within every given opportunity so that the ones who read that vision from the living epistle that my life is to be, shall be able themselves hopefully take from some parts of it and run with it in their own lives.

That awaits an appointed time as all of my days, time and moments are in God’s hand and are kept by Him as in a bottle to be dispensed in times of refreshing which often my eyes cannot foresee.

The vision awaits it’s appointed time and it hastens unto the end. It will not mis-lead. Only my misperceptions take me on detours and away from God’s Presence and then I end up walking in my own vain imaginations. Let’s stay out of that alley.

Progress seems slow, yet I will wait for it. It will surely come and not be delayed in God’s timetable. For I have the need of endurance, so that when I have done the will of God I may receive the promise. (Hebrews 10:36)

“If you turn at my reproof , behold I will pour out my spirit to you; I will make my words known to you.” (Proverbs 1:23)

May I therefore run well and unto the very end. Amen!
