Just Breathe

Hi Again,
Do you ever feel like you are in a whirlwind of change in life? Or perhaps the whirlwind is simply in the "To Do List" in your mind.
I know how that feels. There are times that I seem to live in that place almost every day.
I find myself having to "Just Breathe" and to remind myself to take one step at a time.
To stop and smell the proverbial roses along the rocky path of life.
To simply let all the things that seem to be the 'weeds' in my life, become 'wild flowers instead'. Beautiful, robust and even medicinal.
When my mind is running at a pace that could surpass a shooting star and I feel frantic about which way I need to go. Or how little time I have to do all the things that I failed to do over the years. When the chronological clock keeps tap, tap, tapping at my mind. Like the Chinese water torture. I shake myself back to the true reality of things. I am not a mere mortal.
And neither are you out there who claim to have the life of God inside of you, through the redemptive blood of Jesus.
We are 'No' the 'Mortals', we are the 'Eternals'.
We are as, I like to say '33 and holding'.
Jesus stopped at 33 and so have I. At least in my, heart that is.
So when life seems to be sucking me down the drain of lunatic thoughts. I simply stop and pull the plug on the manic task master that tries to push me out of my place of peace and I sit.
Yep you got it I just sit. I plop myself right down and just breathe in the presence of my loving Lord and allow Him to still my frantic soul.
Even if I can't sit in this body of flesh. I take a mental squat on a peaceful green pasture in the secret garden of my thoughts.
It is there that I listen to my Beloved God remind me that The Great I AM lives in me.
It is there that 'i am' no longer driven.
I remember that it is always the enemy of my soul that drives.
My Loving Shepherd gently leads. He leads me in to paths of righteousness for His name sake. {Psalms 23}
He leads me by the still waters and it is only He that can still my storm tossed heart.
So if you find yourself in the same place of looney tooney agitation. Just Stop, right where you are and Breathe.
Breathe in the love of the Lord and allow Him to reset your timing belt.
However you be saying "I don't even know this loving "Shepherd God" that you speak of.
Well, He is just a whisper away. So even if you are not sure that He is really there and that He truly loves you and wants to still your quaking heart. Just call on Him and ask Him to prove Himself to you. I promise you He will. Oh and by the way should you ask Him into your heart and life, all the little (so called) co-incidences that will all of a sudden start happening to you, Well... that would be God.
Later~ Grace, Peace and Love, Firedancer

  2. HEY MOM it's Ev this is the first blog of yours i read :) it was good, sounded like Joice Myer lol. xxx


Hi All thank you for sending in your comments they will be greatly appreciated.

Word UP !!!

Thank you all who have in the recent days read my blog and given me such words of encourage-ment.
I cannot say how overwhelmed my heart is.
Please know that I pray for you all by name and take the time to ask God to bless you and speak directly to your heart as you read the words I write.
By the way I take no credit for the great stuff that comes out on the page.
I know full well that I am just taking dictation.
However for the not so great stuff well that would be me.
In any case I hope that when you read, you go away a little more encouraged. Remembering that we all go through pretty much the same stuff.
The great thing is that we never have to go it alone.
So if you ever need me just shoot me an email or a note and I will shoot up some incense for you directly into God's throne room. And if you can't do that just call out my name and know that I will hear you in the spirit. And I will pray for you even if I don't know you by name. God does and He can and will get the message out and send you the help you need from His sanctuary.
Now be re-freshed as you read 'The WORD UP' aka 'The Fresh Manna For the Day' !!!
