Abandoning a hobby.
You brought me to this place.. to pan for what brings You joy.
But it’s just what got me here.
Once You captured me with your Joy ,flickering gold… I saw so much more.
This time spent searching, so much more was revealed.
What fool’s gold looks like…. I now know.
I saw how time and time again the flicker of holiness…is not Holy… but the flicker of the gold of fools.
Is that why you brought me to this?
To see while we are on the Keep Moving… how often people will pop up shouting “Holy gold!”?… and it does flicker and shine.
But it is all one more way we wrap ourselves tightly in itchy flesh…. we serve ourselves…looking into a swirling pan of flickering inferior joy…not Joy.
Missing true Holiness while we are busying ourselves with things without value….even when they do flicker and shine?
How do we fine tune our panning skills….
and sing you Worship and Praise… and not sing catchy tunes which sing of our faults…our unworthiness….and not your Holiness
Walk in the Joy of the Lord which is our strength… and not count how many ways we can make ourselves joyful in one day
to pray with the voices of someone You did die for… You did fight for… You did conquer for…. and not with the prayers of self pitying lowly weaklings
to cast out in Your name.
to speak with courage and strength like one who is royally bred and not some simpleton or town idiot who doesn’t know their royal heritage.
To turn the hobby of You… into a lifestyle and art!
So is this why you brought me here on this Journey of Keep Moving?
So I may pan next to You and learn how to see the gold of fools and throw it away from my path… the things dressed as holy, but are really just more self serving acts to keep us busy going nowhere.
To stop looking at how many stones are in the pan….. the sin in our lives.
To look past for what is true gold….
the True Joy of the Lord,
Understanding our True Royal Heritage
I am getting it ounce by ounce… I came for one thing… but You stand beside me teaching me a life skill passed down through a Royal Line.
A life skill which is not for the hobbyists… but for the devout.
I want to bring along as many as I can…. there is treasure for everyone on this Journey.
