Love driving this route to and from work because it’s relaxing, unlike 195 rush, A1A, is a 35 mile an hour ride, full of sunrise beach sites, mansions, and it’s a place inhabited by souls who have made it “financially”. Admire this, not covet and that was my prayer actually. “Father, on earth as it is with You” And it hit me.
As fleeting as this life is, we have something waiting for us that NO man can imagine, His Promise to us, for those who believe. And yet, even those who do know, do believe still strive, still have hidden fears, still are anxious and they (me) bring this with them to work, e v e r y w h e r e they go THIS is present, in one state or another so they (me) exist within their weakness. Help is “surface”, work is a “job”, friendship with the Father has been displaced and presence is lukewarm and you (me) may not realize it, living is existing within the X factor. Doing this function for “X Y Zzzzzzz“.
Maybe if you’re young, passion fuels you to a climatic union. If you have a family you live for your children now, yet where is your (my) understanding? Communicating, compassion, is fleeting as you must work away from the ones you love to support “financially”. So you bond with some at work and you plan “Meet Ups” and you have places to share and occasional family reunions, heck you may even travel to Europe and its all about the latest “Bucket List” excursions, your latest novel, book or blog . . . for what?
Ok so maybe this is a :mid life crisis: flow of thought here, however why did Jesus do what He did and say what He said as He was being crucified on a cross?
“Forgive them Father for they know not what they do”
Today a trauma came in, of course many visit us at our Level 1 center. Motor Vehicle Accident’s, Falls, Shootings, Animal mauling’s, Suicide attempts and the occasional Electrocutions. You think you’ve seen it all, however, this was a personal first.
Today a man was moving tree, holds tree at base and unknown to him branches touch power chords. Bolt travels through tree, through man and exits feet. Exit wounds in both feet, slit wide and larger then a golf ball, his socks melted into his feet. His flesh looks like a bad sun burn and he’s alive. He is on a 2l n/c and stable, talking, one (me) would think initially “a miracle”, however this is not the case. His inside has changed, he’s still “cooking” its like a “microwave” zap. All his blood is now changed, it’s boiled, the platelets aggregate as the vessels constrict, meaning glucose, potassium all electrolytes are charged, levels will INCREASE and pump through the body now. Normal ph balance is no more. (The reason “stress” will kill you) So tho he looks like he survived his body inside is still “cooking”. He may be alive today, like us all, yet we must ask ourselves;
“Has a trauma changed your DNA?”
If we don’t acknowledge God in our day, guess what, your life has become a routine. What have you conditioned yourself to “do”? How much of the presence of God in your actions or are they all self centered? We (me) have become so accustomed to NOT having God present, our (my) life has become “lukewarm”. We take with us a condition of illness everywhere and whether you want to admit or not you (me) are affecting EVERYONE you come in contact with.
We need to discipline ourselves to focus on the Precious Creator who Loves us so much. He wants us to SEE HIM LEADING US THROUGH WHATEVER SHADOW OF DEATH we have to face. His Grace is Present in EVERY adversity, we must (I) stay focused on His Precious Promise, not forgetting what God HAS DONE. Never forgetting what God has done for us when living is VIBRANT EVERY DAY!!!
No need to strive in my strength, leaning on Him knowing on earth as it is in Heaven IS RIGHT HERE. Now open your eyes (my eyes) to SEE HIS PROMISE. Not living for mansions on earth, BE the temple on earth RIGHT NOW RIGHT HERE LIVING INSIDE OF ME (you!) refreshing ALL you (me) come in contact with … forever more. Accepting Holy Spirit to come in your lives, leaning not on your own understanding, PRAISING HIM, being still enough to LISTEN to the truth, the facts of the matter were a shadow of the truth yet to come! Obedient to grace, to love, letting go of the shadows of the past and walking in the truth and now letting your shadow heal. He said to me (us) “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness” WOW
Addendum: Father God in Heaven and on earth, thank you for the breath, for the hope, for the joy and the pain of all this process called Life. You who sacrificed Your beloved son, Yesuha, Jesus of Nazareth, embodied with Your pure essence, visited us once long ago to show us the way, Your truth, Your Life. We negligent, for whatever reason, have lost sight of this profound Knowing, Living, .. Loving. Father forgive me. Father touch this man who came in as a trauma, the one who was just attempting to secure another days pay for himself and his family. He too, unaware of deaths promise was numbly shocked into a “suddenly”. Father touch his heart, his mind his BLOOD, heal his inners as Your Son’s blood was shed for a time and season just like this. Blanket him with Your Love Father that he too may know of this promise. His feet display wounds as my Saviors, the pain and fear in his eyes also a familiar knowing, O Beloved Master of the Universe, Holy Jehovah, Great Messiah of All, touch this man and men like him with a Grace of Knowing and Healing so they too may reach out with a breath of i love You. Forgive me. Make me, re create me Right o Lamb of God, take away the sins of my youth, generational sins of my Fathers, set me aright so to eat at Your table o Lord, Majestic One, Have Mercy, Grace me with the Knowing of Your Son, Your heartbeat, Your loving awe, so i too can breathe hope unto my brothers and sisters, so You may have All the Honor, All the Praise, All the Majestic Glory where deep calls unto deep and Love washes away all doubt, all misery, all sin, and Living is hallowed, our daily bread a miraculous consumption. Where faith creates hope and holy love abounds. Amen
