How to see straight.

October 26, 2011

There are days when we all need to Refocus .

We lack the clarity.

We wonder if “That was it… I guess it’s gone.”

Our lives require so much of us….we need to get so much done….?

Wondering how to gather in the Keep Moving when our lives , like a sticky briar bush require so much attention.

With blurry vision we shake our heads back and forth….trying to shake it off.

Just because our vision is blurry or our ears are muffled…. the stream still flows.

Take a second.

Take a breath.

Be Still.

You aren’t on this Path just for you.

You are creating a legacy.

He won’t let you walk alone.

You don’t need to see clearly…. there is a Guide.

You only need to Be Willing…. to take a step.

The stream never stops running.

It is always flowing.

And nothing in this world…

no task…

no job….

no relationship…

no amount of company coming and house to clean..

no amount of deadlines..

none of it is worth NOT  Receiving.

So when your eyes are blurry with the tired pace of this self centered world…

Drop it all where you stand…

It is all crap.

You are meant to Receive.

You are built to Gather all that He has.

So get low…so low.



He will Restore your Soul.



Listening to this band this morning...SisterBrother.

But more specifically this song..Be of Good Faith…. it will change your day, especially the end.

~~~~~~* Extra Freebies*~~~~~~

**If you need more on this subject of Receiving or how to hear from God on this great big Keep Moving ….

How to Receive when so much is stopping you.

Keep Moving.

Why do any of this… because: Washed Ashore  and because we are Raising Super Heros.

Here is a ton more, because we need to remember we are Built to Receive and we don’t always know how.

    This is EXACTLY what I needed to read this morning.

    Thank you.

    I have been CLEANING deeply for the past 4 days – and I am exhausted, just wanting to curl up somewhere and rest deeply! – and what you said so caught me, “You are creating a legacy” – one step at a time. Yes, I need to take that step – one step at a time, closer to the Father – but I need to take that step to leave a legacy for my children to follow – to not give up for me is important but to not give up for them, too! You have encouraged me today, encouraged me onward! Thanks T!

    I love it – “the stream never stops running.”

      Oh Carrie thank you… I really try to blog about what God is telling me every morning… It was a struggle to hear with so much going on here.
      Thank you for taking the time to encourage me.

        so much going on… so hard to hear … You heard beautifully!
        reminds me of Graceful’s blog
        she says:
        On second thought, I decide, it really doesn’t look like death at all. I see now that the air is alive with movement.

        Tiny bugs float like dust particles in a band of sunlight.

        Six sparrows startle from the yellowing lilac shrub when I cough.

        A chickadee perches on the birdbath, dips her delicate beak and finds only dried scum left over from summer water. She flies to the bare-branched locust tree, its leaves always the first to drop. They are already ground to dust along the street gutter.

        A ladybug hovers, then lands on the arm of my sweater. I like the way her ruddy wings look against the celery-green cashmere, like Christmas.

        I think that’s what I love most about this sitting. It squashes my expectations and opens new possibilities. I venture out to sit in late October, expecting to find death in season’s end, and instead see life still buzzing on as always. I bet if I ventured into black night or the aching cold of January I’d find the same. I just might dare do that once or twice.

        I think this is what Barkat means when she quotes Gertrud Nelson near the beginning of Chapter Five:

        “…our remaining ‘open to the Spirit’ means allowing for the spontaneous and unexpected to enter. We…leave openings.”

        That’s what this sitting is – an opening, an invitation to the unexpected. I don’t do that often, you know – invite the unexpected. I’m not spontaneous.
        I like control. But this sitting has been gentle to me, a quiet joy seeping into
        an opened soul.

    I like…nothing is worth…not receiving all He has…so true….

      One of those thing we need to be reminded about …and reminded about…
      Over and over.
      It’s that perspective that helps us focus.
