I think deep down we all know that we are somehow connected whether we acknowledge this or not. The connection isn’t immediately visible in this world, and yet many of us feel it and know that it is there. Those who have accessed this deep knowledge in times of silence or brokenness or even great joy, experienced this connection and wanted to share it with everyone and thus many creations and inventions have been born from what we know within, spoken and written languages, roads, art, books, mail, morse code, televisions, telephones, and now the internet – connecting our whole world.
Yet – anything we create here is a simplistic, broken and eventually a corrupt copy of what truly exists, what is real yet invisible!
Let us use our inventions to spread LOVE despite their brokenness, but let us NOT allow them to overshadow the true and real connection that is buried deep within each of us – you will find it in the SILENT and INFINITE DEPTH of each PRESENT MOMENT. Within each moment it waits to be discovered – a buried treasure whispering to us – Come, come and see!
The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in the field, which a man found and hid again; and from joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking fine pearls, and upon finding one pearl of great value, he went and sold all that he had and bought it.
We are all expressions of God’s Love – each existing only as a silent dream, that when whispered from His Heavenly lips came to life.
We are all wounded and broken in some way by this fallen and fragmented world, yet still beautiful as the very act of living expresses His Great and Infinite Love. Welcome all who come to you gently knowing that this sweet, precious, and broken being is an expression of His Love and as you send them forth – send them floating down the river of prayers flowing from your heart, easing their pain and yours for a moment or maybe a lifetime.
There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy dwelling places of the Most High.
I always find it so interesting that we are broken and living in a broken world, yet there is still so much more within us that must be broken in order draw closer to God.
He wants to break us slowly, like a mighty cliff that is gradually broken down by the ocean into individual grains of sand, but so often He comes across our resistance and it is then that a great rock from our cliff will come crashing down all at once and oh how it hurts.
Oh Lord, please remove our resistance so that we might all one day flow within your great ocean.
Thy Will Be Done, Oh Lord!
Imagine a place where we passed on our things every day. We didn’t sit around with full pantries, closets, or attics, but instead cleaned out and passed on every night before bed. Imagine the cleansing we would do, and the new opportunities that would arrive right on our door steps!
I am pretty sure I am a break in this circle, but how I would love to mend my broken piece.
Please pray for us my friends. Please pray that the spirit of generosity will rise up in our souls like a burning fire, and there will be nothing that will quench this desire of ours but to give, give and give!
