When this old world starts getting you down, when you forget, when the cacophony distracts, when you want to numb the pain or distress, when you are overwhelmed…
close your eyes
consciously breathe slowly and deeply
breathe from the top of your head to the soles of your feet
breathe from the soles of your feet to the crown of your head
who you are
and whose you are;
that you are Loved without measure, completely, unlimited, always and forever.
Be still and know
feel after Him
until you encounter what has never left you
awareness of God’s Presence!
He has placed eternity in your heart
Examine yourselves; test yourselves; prove to yourself!
Underneath all the world stuff
is pure Presence
that never changes
never leaves nor forsakes you
never fails you
never hurts you
always there for you
cherishes, nurtures and nourishes you
soothes, comforts, settles and heals you
restores, rebuilds, renews, revives and regenerates you
counsels, guides, leads and teaches you
has your back, has you covered, advocates for you
protects and provides for you
makes you the head instead of the tail
loves you into blessings, removes the curse
establishes Christ in you!
gives you His life and life to the fullest
gives you His Name above all names
gives you all He was given: everything in heaven and on earth
gives you what you did not sow
His Father’s Vineyard, His Vine, His identity, His position in the family, His blessing, life and inheritance, His Tree, His leaves, His Fruit, His Spirit and even His body so you can be as He is in THIS WORLD but not of it!
Our part is to provide a new wineskin for Him to fill with His new wine! Take off our human soiled garment so he can clothe us with Himself!
Christ in you is the GIFT OF GOD that keeps on giving!
Just breathe, be still, REMEMBER!
Jesus says to you, “Peace be with you” And He breathed on them, and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit”
Consciously breathe the breath of Life, the Holy Spirit, and be aware of God’s Presence in you! Everything else will melt away; things you thought were set in stone dissolve into nothing for there is ONLY PRESENCE and our awareness of His Presence within! When we have anchored our soul in this Truth we begin to see His Presence everywhere and as we are able to see it, it expands, grows, increases, multiplies… we make it possible for others to see and hear! The wind blows but we only see the effects; the Holy Spirit flows but we only see, hear, smell, taste, and feel the effects…and they are GLORIOUS!!!!!!!
For we are weak IN HIM…but CHRIST IN YOU IS STRONG by the Power of God. Examine yourselves, to see whether you are holding to Christ-like faith. Test yourselves. Do you not realize that Jesus the Christ is in you? –unless indeed you fail to meet the test!…For we can do nothing against the truth, but only for the truth…amend your ways [take The Way, Truth and Life of Christ in you!] agree with God, live in peace and the God of LOVE and PEACE will be with you…the GRACE of Lord Jesus Christ and the LOVE of God and the FELLOWSHIP OF THE HOLY SPIRIT be with you all” 2 Corinthians 13:3-14
