MORNING THOUGHTS ☕️: I woke up this morning pondering what I would want to say to you today IF this was my last post. I guess surgery on Monday had me thinking that way…not that I think anything is going to happen…I mean, duh…this is NOT a difficult surgery. BUT, none the less…
WHAT. WOULD. I. SAY?
I’d probably sound like Paul. In his letter to the Ephesians, he IMPLORED them to walk worthy of the calling with which they’d been called. He ACHED for the ones he walked alongside and wanted them to SEE and KNOW and BELIEVE in the fullness of who lives IN them and who they are because of that.
I’d share with you, one last time, that Jesus is REAL. Like real, real. Like not some character in a book real, but tangibly real. Our EVER-PRESENT help and friend.
I’d encourage you to get to know each person of the Trinity individually, and then as the three stand cord that they are. The Father heart of God, the loving kindness of Jesus and the fascinating, ever moving and whispering Holy Spirit. Gah. He’s fab.
I’d say “Y’all!!! Come on now!! Open your spirit eyes to SEE! Your spirit ears to HEAR! Don’t be fooled by what the world has to offer! It’s fools gold. Period. End of story. It’s fleeting and unsatisfactory and will lead you to a life of mediocrity at best. This world is so fleeting. It’s eternity that YOU + I were made for…it’s heaven that’s our home! Oh…and that’s not THERE and we are HERE and maybe, just maybe, if we say the right prayer we will get to GO there when we die. Nope. The dimension of the spirit realm is RIGHT HERE…so close. It’s more real than what you and I see with our natural eyes. It’s what our spirits are longing for whether we realize it yet or not!”
I’d say live with reckless abandon. Like just go ALL IN. DECIDE to believe that either EVERY word is true or NONE at all. Decide if you’re gonna take him at his word or question everything all the time. It will mean the difference of living life tossed to and fro or living life from a posture and place of rest and joy and that elusive peace that surpasses all understanding.
I’d lastly say THANK YOU. Because of YOU, I’ve gotten up day after day to seek after the One who sought me out first. Because of YOU, I’ve wanted to dig deeper, go further, and share more as I discover it. YOU are so important to me. I cry when I talk about you. For real. I do. My heart for you is overflowing and I KNOW that somehow, even though we don’t “sit together” in person over coffee daily…or even though we may not really know each other…somehow, we do. That’s life in the spirit for ya! GO AFTER IT BIG TIME. GO AFTER HIM. Surrender all. Follow closely. Lay down self and watch a life unfold before your eyes that you could have never imagined.
Ok. Well. I may or may not talk to you on Monday. I don’t know what time surgery is yet, but I’ll keep you posted! Love you so!
