Be a Light “You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father." ~Matthew 5:14-16 (NLT)
He breathed. He breathes life into us. He bowed low and breathed into us. That is amazing. Take a deep breath and give thanks today because no matter what - He loves you. We can hold our breath but eventually we have to let go. Let go and give thanks.
Aligning my heart with His - with some Power Holy Yoga - this Valentine's. The ultimate gift...His Son. "My response is to get down on my knees before the Father, this magnificent Father who parcels out all heaven and earth. I ask him to strengthen you by his Spirit—not a brute strength but a glorious inner strength—that Christ will live in you as you open the door and invite him in. And I ask him that with both feet planted firmly on love, you’ll be able to take in with all followers of Jesus the extravagant dimensions of Christ’s love. Reach out and experience the breadth! Test its length! Plumb the depths! Rise to the heights! Live full lives, full in the fullness of God." ~Ephesians 3:14-19 (MSG)
A new week...a fresh start! What does it look like this Monday to "Come to Me (Jesus), all who are weary and I will give you rest?" For me, it looks/feels like a big exhale, giving thanks for all the good and messy (hard to give thanks for that), and for all the medications that make you well again. He promises to always be near and to always meet us where we are.
Jesus says, "Come to Me and rest. I am all about you!" He is all about me. He is all about you! No matter what. We don't have to clean up before we come to Him...we don't have to get our heart in good condition first. He says, "Bring it to Me!" That's a willing heart and that is all He wants. I want to be all about Him. What about you?
