His Light Greets You

 

His Light Greets You

His Light pierces the branches and the horizon before us.

He calls, He shines, He beckons our attention.

Will you, pause? 

Will you embrace His Day unfolding across the open skyway?

Truly He calls us to run freely into His Light of Hope, renewal and Peace.

God, never sleeps, His eye searches our hearts. Will we pause?

Will we abandon our neediness to grip His Day, 

His Plan for you His Child?

Surely His presence never falters, surely He knows you, His child. •

May the Light of His Peace and the Majesty of His Grace, enter into your Day.

Yes. He calls, calls us to yield and embrace the fullness of His plan for now, today, this time, this place where He holds you ever so close.

Drawing you nearer and nearer to His Light and Love, seeking to embrace the Day with you, right where you are.

Hear His gentle whispers of tenderness and mercy, adorning His Presence.

He delights in you. 

His Love never failing, His Wings ever carrying all, for whom He calls.

Listen. Listen. He calls. He beckons our hearts into the transcended Light of His Glory and Grace.

Step in. Step into to His fields of beauty and majesty, blazing across the skies, illumining all creation.

Look, see, yes the Lord awaits your hand open and abandoned. 

Patiently, yet powerfully His Majesty adorns the earth.

Birds sing, trees raise up their branches to praise and honor.

His gentle unfolding of the Day, beckons us. Are you listening, He calls.

The Day embraces time and brings newness and Hope.

Rest. Yes, yet with eyes wide open, open in full abandonment to His glorious entrance into our hearts and all our ways this Day.

Will you seek to hear, seek to see, seek to find?

Yes, find, embrace the One True Light of the World, our Lord Jesus Christ. His Invitation never ceases, embrace His Day breaking through yours.

Join in delight all that He brings this Day.

Amen

A Choice To Pause To Listen

Good Morning,

We arise again this day! What will our pathways convey? Will hope eternal garnish our thoughts and deeds? Do we stop, pause, to praise, looking upward in prayer?

Or more often than not, we jump in, graveling, pushing our way? Instinctively bursting forward to grab hold of time, direction and control.

Is our diving forward “feet” first, without pausing to listen, to hear Truth, to quickly pre-empting, the Holy Spirits, droplets of healing rain, breathes of live to rekindle the flames of “Faith” within our very souls.

Has our relentless “hurriedness” derailed us from His Word, Truth, Vision, our source of Light? Like a young child, losing their source of pure joy and delight, as their balloon drifts out of sight. in the abbess of aimless existence, unanchored, off course, no rudder of guidance, meagerly wandering, away, away, strength fading.

Yet, Our Lord, our Captain, His voice ever faithful never void, always speaking, holding Hope as an eternal flame, illuming the pathways ahead, He never truly loses sight in the midst of our chaos, even in our chosen wandering.

breaths, steps, thoughts to the Almighty Sovereign Lord. Who are we? Is Holy God not Sovereign? The Wisdom of God, the Light of all Hope, Love Himself. He is speaking to us, through us, with or without us, yet it our choice, whether or not we choose Our Lord.

Who are we? Is God not our Sovereign Deliverer of Hope and Peace. His tender mercies, gently pour into our brokenness, fragmented edges, ever beckoning our hearts; the call, the cry, calling ever calling us to stop, to pause to draw near. Yet do we? Blowing winds, ebbing currents swirling, racing, each, stealing us, consuming us, our time, energy all matter. Where, where, what is it all, that drives us? Are we are moving toward? Coming, going, grasping, holding, is their eternal gain, woven within the fabric of our quest?

Whirling, piercing noise, within, without, ebbs of turmoil, echoing, haunting our thoughts; pleating demands. Do see? All around us, cloistering, piles, lists, voices, choices, decisions. Vainly we keep grasping for our own on reasoning.

Where were we headed; why are we going? Have we patented “doing”, as trophies for ourselves? Is our pursuing, fractured? Is His wisdom heard in the daily grind or in the attainment of chaotic matter and mindfulness, pierced in the overwhelmed fragments presence?

Our minds blinded, with blurring chaos, unfiltered voices, distractions, clanging, invading any our freedoms, our hunger for real communion, deeper, richer, closeness with the Lord. The overt boastings of the enemy, through mindless noise, superficial frills; splattered across the net waves of the media infiltrating our hearts, minds and soul, aching for rest, assurance, inner peace.

Driven, uncertain, constant pulling, peeling, flushing; swirling, winding, flooding our inner core. Is serving within our objective? What is the honest motivation? Do you hear amongst all deep within, His calling, deep within, ever so near? He desires our all, our true selves, not redesigned by false “reality” an outward shallow, fit on the cover or box top design!

His relentless Love, never wanes, nor is His wisdom blinded by the blinded false currency, real value of designed, before time, you, I, His creation. Our purposes are unique, not meant to be copied, reformed, refashioned by the world’s standards. We acknowledge that all snowflakes are not the same. Nor does the Truth of His Word create us to be a mere existence of something else, no we are wonderfully and perfecting knit together in God’s image, written in God’s Book of life before humanity was spoken, bringing forth each one, each new creation in the image of God.

His Truth, His Love, His Promise never defaults, never wanes, clattering, pushing, prodding, demanding, judging, avoiding, denying, who we are, whom we, why were created to be whom we truly are. His Love is an ocean; His Wisdom transcends all boundaries.

Our God, is never deceived or shaken. His Truth prevails, His Hope remains, may we all seek, not to surrender to less than God’s desire for each one of His own. You, I, each one, is being called, yes called, truly “seen”, acknowledged, yes deeply treasured, desired beyond our limited/or wildest imagination. To “Be” the you He created you to “Be”. Within, the full measure of Almighty God’s design and providential purpose for you today, in this moment of time, for God’s Eternal purposes today, tomorrow within His sovereign making.

My prayer fellow traveler, my prayer for you, myself, my neighbor, my next encounter, may it be transformed and awakened to a deeper knowing, depths of your own soul, guiding your steps, re-shaping your heart, renewing your soul, and bringing you His strength within to flourish, more than pant, living, growing within, renewed and refreshed by the tranquil waters of His Transcending Holy Spirit, knowing you are “held”, loved with an abiding love, a treasure beyond measure, in the eyes of the Lord Our God your eternal Hope and Firm foundation, today, tomorrow and forever.

I cry out from within Amen, again, Amen to His Holy Word, Amen.

Whom shall we fear, in whom shall we Trust, we need to TRUST in the Lord Our God alone.

You alone are Holy, You alone are God, You alone, Save us, Rescue, us from the Chains which seek to entrap lives with fear, doubt, and anxiety.

Oh Lord do you hear our cries for freedom, in between roar of clanging and clatter, cars zooming, horns blaring, with seas of voices and rumbling street cars and trains. Factories shoot vats of smoke, seeking to split the flowing clouds above.

Racing, pacing, cars, trucks seemingly flowing, darting across the striped rivers, streams of tar on the highways and roads.

Children shouting, laughing, people walking, talking, waves of beeps and rings, clambering for attention. Yet they do not sooth us, they do not bring us peace, quiet, to readily they service as vices drowning out Our longing and hunger for Peace and real Hope.

Oh Lord come, Lord come quickly, our souls yearn for you to come, to quite us. You alone are the source of our true Freedom

Oh Lord, we ache to be captivated by your bountiful array of beauty, the shining Stars and the, brilliant hues of light reflecting and dancing over the tapestry of your brush across the skies and in

Breezing winds ever gently sway the leaves of mighty trees, clapping leaves, and flowing meadow grasses, dance endlessly across the lands. Each arrayed in glistening shades of green and pastels dancing, prancing silhouettes and fields of wild flowers.

Oh Lord Your Majesty is boundless, let us come, come, come. Quiet our restless hearts, restores our weary souls. Come, come, come Lord, help us to bath in the boundless ocean of Your relentless Love, Peace and Hope, that you alone renew and refresh.

Yes, Lord, You alone are the true source of Our Freedom, let Freedom reign throughout the land, this “DAY” today this day to reflect and remember that Freedom flows from humble hearts and open hands.

Still the waters, Pierce the darkness, illuminate us Lord, come Lord, come lead us to our only Freedom lead us in Paths of Freedom and Righteousness.

Come Lord Jesus, Come, Come, release and open our weary hearts to receive, to receive you Peace, Your Hope your FREEDOM.

Lord Jesus thank you, We Praise You, we Worship you, Come Lord Jesus come, today is the Day of the Lord, the Dawning of Freedom rests in You, Come, Come Lord Jesus Come, heal this Cracked and broken Land, forgive us, heal us, Restore us.

Come, come, come quickly Lord Jesus, yes you alone, you alone are bringing true FREEDOM on this Holiday Weekend, Yes, Yes, You Lord, Come, Ringing Heaven’s Hope reigning with Heaven’s Peace on all the pathways and with may you PEACE calm our Hearts.
