Initiating The Journey
In hopes to get a clear message to you as a reader, I have come to realize that my writing style, thought processes and zeal, have not been reflected in some of the last posts. In going back over the material I have personally written, I am charged to look differently at a few things. Reading previous content is like looking in the mirror and honing in on what I want to say and have yet to speak on.
I told myself that going on a journey is not just explaining a parable with flowery words and pictures - not that all of them were like that, of course. Going on a journey is to show the good with the bad; the lessons learned along the way. The willingness to show the scars and share the stories on how they have helped change my walk, talk and down to my subconscious to what I intentionally and unintentionally expect to come to me.
Come on a journey with me as I really lock into my voice and confidence in God.
Have ever stood in the mirror and looked into your own eyes? At first, it can be uncomfortable. How so? Maybe because we see the things we do not like and how they have molded our hearts and perceptions of life as a whole. But if we continue to look in our own eyes past the hurt that we don't speak about and see the resting lamb, as well as, the victorious lion and lioness, that knows no defeat, we are capable of putting down our armor, sword and shields. It's that person that rises up when all odds are against you and no one believes in you. It becomes the supernatural strength that keeps us pushing past our own stopping point. This person is also the one that leads us beside the still waters.
That person is the part of you that is the undeniable impartation of the Spirit of God. When He said, "Let us make man in our own image" (Gen 1:26) and breathed the breath of life in you He breathed all of the strength, power, courage, submission, strategy, etc. Every answer to everything that we would come against us was imparted. We must choose to allow His power to be released in us. We hear that life happens all the time but when we wear the "life" on us that we are suppose to have dominion over it can then grieve the Spirit; life will try to govern us. Which makes me wonder if the Lord was grieved when he had to wrap us in flesh, the very thing that we are to have dominion over, when man sinned. Yet another side of me rejoices because there was a man name Jesus who would be able to redeem us all.
The same breath that was blown into Adam during the days of creation is living inside of me AND the same power that raised Jesus from the grave is living inside of me.Knowing this puts me on a journey to get to know that type of dominion and power that I have but first I have to open up the closed doors, disarm the alarms, remove the watch dogs, and address some things.
It won't always be pretty but it will always be beautiful. If you're willing to come along with me...I'll ask you some questions on the posts and on the *new* discussion board.
Pack your bags....now THIS initiates the journey with me.
