MEDITATION

Thank you Holy Spirit.  We’re asking that you flow afresh on us.  We need refreshers Holy Spirit.  You came to us when we were baptized, when we were confirmed.   You came to us even though we didn’t ask.  Like when we were baptized.  That’s where we first encountered You.  Throughout our lives, throughout so much sadness, throughout so many good things –  things we didn’t know about; instincts, good instincts that kept us from harm – crashes that were avoided “somehow?”  So many good things, so many protections. Some said angels – perhaps.   But I think it was You.  We look up at the last minute, make a turn, crash avoided. Yeah, so much is You and we take You for granted cause we don’t even know it’s You half the time.
You’re the Spirit of Truth!   And that’s so important to know what is true and what isn’t.  Sometimes we try to fool our selves, about ourselves.   We think a whole lot better of ourselves than we deserve.   And sometimes we’re so down on ourselves, and so discouraged, and we think so poorly of ourselves. But You’re there with Your comfort, helping us remember some good things too, to balance our “untruthieness” about ourselves and situations.   Holy Spirit we can never get enough of You or that there’s only so much of You that we can take (chuckle).   Because of our shattered community and our emotional fragility as it were.   Everything all at once would probably blow us over and make us confused and start talking gibberish. (Laughter!) Oh Yeah – talking in tongues is talking gibberish!  OK, maybe so.                                                                     We thank you Holy Spirit, cause You’re always where we need You.  You’re always within us.   Help us be aware of you’re presence!   Help us be aware of the gifts you have given us!  The truths You have instilled in us that guide our lives, that keep us from making disasters out of our life.   It doesn’t take too many wrong turns before we’re all screwed up and all confused and all mixed up.   Yeah, we may make wrong turns, but thank You for not letting us make too many wrong turns.   And You’re there to give us new life, new hope to pick us up and remind us of Jesus all the time.                                                                                 You are the Love, theologically, between the Father and the Son. And I just got a feeling today that all love within us – it is You – it’s You all along – teaching us through our loves and those things we don’t love; and through bad experiences and good experiences.  You are the Wisdom there, the Wisdom within the Love teaching us.   Thank You so much Holy Spirit. Thank You. (praying in tongues)

MAY 13, 2017 Mother’s Day Fifth Sunday of Easter (cycle A)

MEDITATION

Thank You Lord for Your presence.  It comes in so many forms.  Lord, the results of the same.  We can feel You.  Sometimes we can’t. But the times we feel You presence, they can be overwhelmingly sweet, precious, full of Your peace….feeling Your love go just deep within us….sometimes even when we feel so unlovable.  Your love is always so constant.  Our lives get so busy Lord, and there are so many things we have to do.  But if just on a sheer chance, Your presence just comes through – just a little –swoosh!   Man that’s awesome.   Sometimes it can Swoosh! when we least expect.  But it’s always there.  The true gift that would be outstanding is perfect presence, Lord. Always, always aware of that love, and then when we see things that we find disturbing, instead of always being so judgmental, we see these people as you love the unlovable, as You love the sinner, as You love the one that’s hurting us.  It changes everything Lord.  It changes everything.  Our vision is so limited. Our scope of understanding is so small.  It’s hard enough to even understand ourselves so often. “I don’t know why I did that? Oh, it just happened!” Yeah, things just happen. We don’t know why. Sometimes we act so foolishly, and viciously too sometimes. Yeah.  But Your love is a constant.  In this place.  In every place.  Around us.  Within us.  In this universe.   Beyond this universe. Yeah. Yeah.   It’s always constant. THE CONSTANT OF GOD IS LOVE. (laughter) I don’t know math for beans, but it sounds right. Thank you Jesus – always free for love.   (praying in tongues)

PROPHESY

My children before there was anything, I was.  I AM ALWAYS.  I AM LOVE.  I AM where you were first envisioned.  I AM before you were born.  Yes, I knit you in your Mom’s womb, knit there.   When you took your first breath, oh yeah, not just the air, but My Spirit of love within you.  My love, every minute from before – till you’re with Me in eternity.  My love gives light – gives being before there is life.   But most of all My love is tender, Divine in laying down My life for you.   Divine to pay any price so that you know My love for you is beyond anything you can understand – anything you could measure.  The place of my love – that’s everywhere.   Through however many universes you understand.   My love is everywhere.  That’s the place.  That’s the place. This place is as full of My love as My love is beyond the universes. There is no limit. There’s no spreading out.   It’s like a hologram.   No matter how much you divide it up, it’s a whole.   You divide a hologram, you don’t get half a hologram, you get another whole hologram.   You divide up that hologram, you get another whole hologram.   My love, it’s like a hologram.   It’s 100% everywhere, everywhere.   It doesn’t diminish as it spreads.  You can’t diminish My love, no matter how much you spread it.   It only grows.  It only grows.  It only grows.  It never diminishes.  I am 100% with you, within you, loving you 100%.

 

 

MAY 6, 2017 Fourth Sunday of Easter (cycle A) Good Shepherd Sunday

MEDITATION

Thank You, Lord. Thank You for being our Good Shepherd. Thank You for laying down Your life for us. I know that was the hardest part.  But we are so grateful to the Father for raising You up, so that we know there is hope. There is life beyond this grave.  It is so important Lord for our sense of well being, no matter what goes wrong in our life, we know the ending.  And it is glorious!  But Lord God, like You were saying last week, some of the most difficult times are really so important in our life. Trials were needed to know – trials to be patient with others –  to get along with others. That’s well and good Lord, that’s nice to know, but it’s still a pain to put up with.  And yet Lord, what keeps us going, what keeps us putting one foot in front of the other, if we know that you’re at the end of the race. YOU ARE THE PRIZE! You are the one who opens the gates of heaven for us. A great prize!

One Jewish concept of life after death is that they go to the home of their ancestors. I know that they can totally believe what they want, but based on the Books of Chronicles, Kings, Samuel, they went to the home of their ancestors. Which is great!   The home of my ancestors is going to my grandma’s house on a Sunday afternoon, eating her fried chicken, with all the relatives gathered round, about 25 people every Sunday. It was awesome! A great time!  There were a lot of family arguments there.  Yes. (laugh) It was a great time, cause you were loved there.  No matter what, you were always loved, cause it was family.

When You opened of the gates with millions of human beings, when You were resurrected in 29 or 33 AD and all those people waiting in line for those gates to open – shepherds who laid down their lives for their flock –  ancient warriors who were fighting for what they believed was at least a good cause, keeping themselves alive so they could get home to their families or helping their buddy stay alive so they could get home to their families.  All those who laid down their lives for someone else, Lord, whoever those people were – probably millions –  maybe not so much at that time  AND THE GATES OPENED!  You were the shepherd on the other side opening those gates to paradise.  AND THEY ALL WALKED THROUGH.

Now when we die, we all walk through those same gates.  YOUR Gift of Love “NO GREATER LOVE“.   Not just one human being to another, but because You were Divine.  But Divinity in human form could actually lay down Divinity’s Life.  Actually do that for mere cosmic specks of dust, which humanity is and this planet is in the vastness of this universe.  Cosmic Dust – And You did that. Thank You so much Lord and we’re so grateful. We can smile through our troubles. Thank You Lord.  (praying in tongues)

PROPHSEY

My sweet little children, you have no idea how precious you are to me.  More than when a mama holds her baby and the love just fills her or when a Daddy plays with his little ones and his heart is singing inside.  So much more than that, this Divine Love. Yes, there’s a vastness of the universe, maybe, maybe, it seems like you’re cosmic dust, but that’s how great Divine Love is.  Divine Love sees Love within every human being.  You were created in Love and I recognize that Love that I put there.   And don’t underestimate that Love I put there!  It is powerful and it draws Me and it keeps Me with you!  It is a strong, strong force,  stronger than anything I created! It’s Me.   Love is Me.   It’s the essence of Who I AM.   And do not underestimate it.   Do not underestimate that Love.   I’d lay down life, I’d do it all again in an instant.  My Love is beyond your understanding. Don’t even try to comprehend, just accept.   And know that it’s just Me burning within you – seeking My love within you to make it grow – increase your happiness.   For you are already one with Me.   And your joy will be complete.   I will make it so.    (praying in tongues

April 29, 2017 Communion song: “We want to be where You are”

MEDITATION
Thank you Lord.  Bless You Lord.  We just want to be with You Lord.  Wherever You are we just want to be there.  Well, we’re here anyway, but we don’t want to worship from afar.
We want to worship in intimacy, in the deepest realms of our souls. That’s where You are. That’s where You talk to us. That’s where You dwell. That’s where You’re enthroned. That’s where we can worship You, completely, openly, before You, as helpless and as wonderful as You have made us.
Lord, sometimes it feels like you are far.  Sometimes our problems just swoosh! crash in on us, and maybe our problems just fall right in front of us -keeping us from seeing You again, from feeling You within us, keeping our hearts from burning.
So Lord, we ask You for a stronger presence. Less problems too. Less problems. I’d like that! (chuckle)
But sometimes that can’t be helped.. (Laughter!)  Because sometimes we can be stupid. (chuckle)  And You allow free will.  But Lord Your presence can burn through anything, set our hearts on fire, and see You right there when we couldn’t see You there before.
Lord God, help us to be intimate too with ourselves, to honestly look for You within us. To claim Your presence there.  Not not be afraid to claim Your presence within us.  And to act as Your presence would require us to act.  Thank You Jesus  (praying in tongues)

Prophesy

My little ones I am within you, within your heart and soul.   Come walk with Me, through you, as I point out the treasures I have given you there.  Yes, some of these treasures seem to be great crosses.  Seem to be – great difficulties.  Yes, seem to be.   But as your life progressed I poured out strength within you – insights to yourself and other people.   Come often with Me within you.   Meet Me there within you that I may teach you more and more what I have given you, and maybe, maybe you will find your deepest joys, your deepest ecstasies there.   Come walk with Me within you.
