Patient in Tribulation 

The story of Ruth is one of intense beauty, how she saw the character of her mother-in-law, her culture and her expression, and then desires to model her life after Naomi.

What strikes me in this is the fact Naomi was deeply tested. She had left her homeland, to dwell in a culture that was vastly different than hers. She lost her husband, and then later her two sons.

Naomi knew it was of the Lord, during all that was transpiring still exhibited a trait that Ruth was drawn to, there was something in Naomi, character that was exhibited in patience, wisdom, and trust.

Eventually Naomi and Ruth sojourn back to Naomi’s homeland, her she now longer looks upon herself as Naomi, and calls herself Mara, indicating she has suffered deeply.

As this story unfolds we see how Ruth is eventually led to meet her new husband, and the result of this a son is born. In Naomi’s old age she is graced with her grandson, she no longer sees herself as Mara, she is blessed by the Lord. Additionally Naomi is blessed to nurse her grandson Obed in her old age.

There are two points that strike me about Naomi.

  • She endured the trials and tests of her life, and had the grace and humility to lead, teach and counsel the generation following her.
  • Naomi’s story is one of great intrigue, as it displays the plans of God being worked out, His Sovereign will is accomplished in the midst of what would appear on the surface as random or unrelated events.

“The mind of man plans his way,

But the Lord directs his steps.”

Proverbs 16:9

Scripture relates the outcome of this beautiful story, Obed fathers Jesse, and Jesse, David, and eventually The Son of Man. The patience endurance of Naomi, and her expression of life yielded fruit beyond anything she could have imagined. All of this is a testimony to the beauty of our Lord, and the workmanship of His hands.

So we see the Fruit of patience during fiery trial.

What is Love…

Faith, Hope & Love…

 

Love is far more than an emotion, although Love is deeply expressive.

Love is the Nature of our Father. Love is the expression of Jesus, the blanket covering Love, that sees the best, hopes the best and is indeed, the best for one and all.

 

 

Love is divine, Love is pure, and without exception to who is included in Loves embrace.

 

At some point Love will be understood and embraced as the way of Life. This is our common destiny, the hope of all mankind, for all things are reconciled in God, who is Love.

When Paul stated his “when I was a child” phrase he was addressing the awakening to Life and the Truth of Love. He was shedding the incomplete, the fractured, and the divisive, and embracing the complete, the whole, and the inclusive Nature of Love, all of which is of Grace through the Spirit of Jesus Christ.

 

 

Today in His Grace, Spirit and Truth we can begin to walk in, and find our being in, Love.

What is Life?

We enter this world blind, awaiting understanding.

So we are equally presented the same valid question…

What is Life?

We live in a world where many measure the meaning of Life by pleasure, work, servitude, religious traditions, or free moral agency. Yet in the cessation of our mortal frame, all of us face the same destiny, death.

 

What is very revealing is how The Teacher related to those He spoke with, to the religious His words were offensive, to those in power His words were considered foolish, delusional, or confrontational. To the humble His words were like water to parched ground, bread to the hungry, liberty to the captive.

Today it is the same, yet we each can step aside for a moment to ponder “what is Life?”.

 
The Teacher came to reveal the Way, to express Truth, and to provide us with Life.

 

Today is a good day to have a good day. Find some quiet time to open your heart to The Teacher, He is always speaking, the issue is in our hearing.

 

Listen…and you can clearly hear His voice.

 

“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.
    “Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS.
   “For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

The Power of One…

It’s time…to rise in our state of being.


The family of man is in all reality one, one in the beginning and one in our Fathers eyes today, and beyond time. The oneness is true, the reality of this is yet for us to understand, but nonetheless true today.


When we begin to operate, move and discover our being in The One that enables the family of man this blessing, we see division subtracted from our hearts, and oneness multiplied.


The Prince of Peace, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Light and Life of all mankind not only makes this possible, it goes beyond possibility, it is reality. 


This is the meaning of His ministry of reconciliation, His Word is Truth, may we have His eyes, His heart, His zeal to become the beautiful creation that we are, all to the praise of His glory, now and forever, Amen

It’s Time…

It’s time….

This was spoken to me one morning on a walk in the Carolinas “it’s time”, and this has be expressed a few times since then. Yesterday it was emphasized over and over “it’s time” and I do see this unfolding in different aspects of humanity and also specifically in my life.

  In humanities perspective it’s time for the curtain call on Adams atrocities, and the unchecked lust and greed that fills the air with a stench that turns your stomach. 
  It’s time for His sons to speak, to speak more boldly the Truth in Love, devoid of the distinctions of race, religion, color, gender or any other measure. To express the Truth boldly, and likewise Love passionately all of creation. To proclaim the depths and beauty of our Fathers heart in Spirit and Truth.
  It’s time to walk in our true identity secure, and free to move and express our being in the Love that fills our hearts. It’s time to lay aside our base nature, and to embrace life in His nature here and know.
It’s time to step into a season of blessings, ones He has in store for each of us.
It’s time to embrace and walk in The Day of our Lord

Living Hope….

“And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.” Romans 5:5 NLT

Single Eye…

We are highly visual, what we see, we believe to be true. What we must have is True Vision.

 

This is not of our senses, but by the gift of Faith, through grace. He becomes our Vision, what we see is beyond the realm of man and his senses.

In His Vision we see the Truth of Love, and the Love of Truth.

“The Light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of Light;”

single is from the Greek word ‘haplous’ which according to Strongs is:
properly folded together, that is, single (figuratively clear): – single.
