Up so early it’s like staying up late. Bonkers. Blessed.
Onto words for today: God is walking. Sounds heard in... the garden. Shame, has us run away. Induced by not knowing the necessity of repentance. Forgiveness and freedom. And only knowing this-world. Through one person’s physical and deepest, widest… wildest too, reality defining act: deliverance or salvation, is all ours, for the receiving.
A death and we’re covered from the consequences of our shame and holding wrongs. God seeks to find us. Release us from the need to be right. Make us more on the right-track by becoming our inner and outer shaper. By knowing how to be wrong. Back to repentance.
‘Where are you?’ Zen-like perpetual question? Could be applied thus, but I’ll take as God isn’t so-everywhere and seeks us to respond. That God is enough everywhere as need be but – looking for company. Closer or further away. Us moving ever toward, or other, and away.
Meeting or walking with… doesn’t happen just, because we live – a natural consequence. The Set-Apart Spirit; Abides, presence/s, more or less – we can almost describe – ‘grow’ among us.
Back to seeds and planting.
God looking for two-way loving and when knock, knock, knocking – can or will give, what we ask. Stupidly not been too much asking, sure should, MUCH more.
May as these words tip-tappin’ be asking and as I think about Steve Pieczenik 'No More False Flags, No More B!!$#!%!' which I just watched (one of those I ‘subscribe’ to at this time/do tend to un and sub as I go). Should stop <<< >>> and say something.
“God give this bold man wisdom. Bring the dark out and shatter, may broadcasters find permission to speak out… and don’t let these fakes and flags carry on, or if they do, send people to catch them and expose and...”. Turn up O God at SP’s. That be the best. And on…
Try to keep it to the clock praying, when that’s all am doing and set for. Stumbling about verses trying to raise up a cry. Mostly a pathetic display but it's not about how looks/sounds, anything compared to, do any way.
Otherwise, do it all the time, is the way. All any troubles I see and surrender into, are about stopping this. Easy well-being barometer. Praying or praise – all's right. Not – wasting. Yet again.
Persistence matters. Isn’t an appeal to a judge but a father. One who wants what we ask for, more than us. Get to want to ask for what God wants, longs for, desires, aches and yearns. All that. Language that expresses heart and soul. Depths of compassion and kindness. God is this. And some, beyond any, highly held ideals. Unimaginably loving. Yet, this, Is God and easy to get some flippy floppy all about me-me-me. And this it ain't.
Sentimentality and, a projected love-less-God, are the two false versions of mercy/grace -and- judgement. Has to work about/for Aleppo and the like. Has to face the perpetrators of B!!$#!%! There's a spectrum of understanding. Ones in the middle best, the place to be middle-middle; combine gutsy activism and unction to be an overcomer for the populations, with the passionate lover-us God.
Civility, consideration and care in all conduct but this applied in war, when we're talking about addressing and stopping people, who want to manipulate our lives into their visions of hate.
Grace is not a drippy, wimpy, mealy-mouthed, sucking the empires etc etc. Nor is it God’s got it in for us because we’ve sinned so. God is for resolution. Peace with – on a one to one. And for the rogue and reckless spirits driving the pyramid to be vanquished. We are, where we are globally, because we the body, be limping and lame. Religiosity and selfishly grace-talking dreamers.
Most ones I see shouting and doing what can for justice, people not calling themselves... ain't... Christians – doing the work of God. What they/we need, is Jesus-talkers to get on with joining them. (Exceptions etc...) and doing, said reborn, for.
Coming back to “get through and get on.” Say one thing.
The Death of Christ.
Say THIS. The world and all that is good? The offer a swap, an exchange, for God who is greater, is – The reality. To engage back into this material, need to be as dead, dead,dead as can be to-us, for us to be alive-alive and get out the sin trap. SAY this: Ours for the asking.
Peace and bless all who read this right scrappy preach.
Putting up m’you tube ch. here and (?) getting audio on ya’ll. Did say months back, would/should and a-comin’ – will see? Taking too long to type these/these type/s are too long. Moreover, need more of God. More of God about.
