The tongue has the power of life and death - and we sure are hearing a lot of death being spewed out lately. I choose to speak life. (Prov. 18:21) The first cuff I ever stamped out...reminding me that words have power!
"Lie down in green pastures of Peace. Learn to unwind whenever possible, resting in the Presence of your Shepherd. This electronic age keeps My children wired much of the time, too tense to find Me in the midst of their moments. I built into your very being the need for rest. How twisted the world has become when people feel guilty about meeting this basic need! How much time and energy they waste by being always on the go, rather than taking time to seek My direction for their lives. I have called you to walk with Me down paths of Peace. I want you to blaze a trail for others who desire to live in My peaceful Presence. I have chosen you less for your strengths than for your weaknesses, which amplify your need for Me. Depend on Me more and more, and I will shower Peace on all your paths." ~Jesus Calling by Sarah Young
"Prayerlessness is the great enemy of true happiness. If we give up on prayer, or refuse to pray, we surrender our seat at the very source of the highest and fullest joy." ~Marshall Segal " You do not have because you do not ask God." ~James 4:2
Fall leaves die to beauty....we have to die to bear more fruit. We have to die to ourselves to allow God to enter in. "Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds." ~John 12:24
I want you woven into a tapestry of love, in touch with everything there is to know of God. Then you will have minds confident and at rest, focused on Christ, God’s great mystery. All the richest treasures of wisdom and knowledge are embedded in that mystery and nowhere else. And we’ve been shown the mystery! I’m telling you this because I don’t want anyone leading you off on some wild-goose chase, after other so-called mysteries, or “the Secret.” ~Colossians 2:2-4 (The Message)
"In order to hear My voice, you must release all your worries into My care. Entrust to Me everything that concerns you. This clears the way for you to seek My Face unhindered. Let Me free you from fear that is hiding deep inside you. Sit quietly in My Presence, allowing My Light to soak into you and drive out any darkness lodged within you. Accept each day just as it comes to you, remembering that I am sovereign over your life. Rejoice in this day that I have made, trusting that I am abundantly present in it. Instead of regretting or resenting the way things are, thank Me in all circumstances. Trust Me and don't be fearful; that me and rest in My sovereignty." ~Jesus Calling by Sarah Young
"So let’s do it—full of belief, confident that we’re presentable inside and out. Let’s keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. He always keeps his word. Let’s see how inventive we can be in encouraging love and helping out, not avoiding worshiping together as some do but spurring each other on, especially as we see the big Day approaching." ~Hebrews 10:24 (MSG)

Mountain Pose: Standing with feet hip width, belly lifted and shoulders drawn down and back. Allow your head to reach tall. Palms face out. Feel grounded into the floor. Take this feeling - being rooted down, steady and alert to Jesus. Root down in His word - His truths - His promises for you! Stay alert to the things that try and make you stumble. Exodus 15:17-18 The Message (MSG) 14-18 When people heard, they were scared; Philistines writhed and trembled; Yes, even the head men in Edom were shaken, and the big bosses in Moab. Everybody in Canaan panicked and fell faint. Dread and terror sent them reeling. Before your brandished right arm they were struck dumb like a stone, Until your people crossed over and entered, O God , until the people you made crossed over and entered. You brought them and planted them on the mountain of your heritage, The place where you live,
In the beginning... Easy Seated Pose: Sit in easy seated pose and reflect on your beginning and God's beginning! Genesis 1:1-4 New International Version (NIV) The Beginning 1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. 3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness.
