Words of Knowledge… or a New Years Day activity, a tutorial.
but all it takes is one moment spent wisely and I notice scrawled upon me is promise.
The future is up ahead and He is there…and here…. and there.
and I want to be found wise-enough to see the stars or signs.
Wanting to hold onto the promises of what the future holds and all the possibilities we seal it so it will be sturdy …
because some days all we have are words….and some days all we have is The Word.
And when we gather together on the first of the New Year we will all pick one…some pick two… and there is a moment when the house is just rustling of rice paper pages of holy books as people seek out their verse…. and then without anyone invited … someone will excitedly read theirs aloud…and then another and when he is done someone else.
Everyone reading and nodding excitedly to Hear what we can cling to as ours…Listening in strain to hear past just the words.
With verses of promise tucked away we unfurl the little flags I wrapped in prayer around bamboo skewers.
They stand tall like a bouquet but as we pull one the others rattle in the jar.
The start of a New Year needs more then human resolutions.
And we know His word never returns void...
so with a group determined to Seek we try to Receive..we do this on the New Year’s day as soon as we can Gather together.
