Freedom’s Eve….

~Freedom’s Eve~  Freedom comes in increments and measures, inch by inch and no matter what the freedom means in real terms to you, the only way it will come in entirety is firstly in our mind, and then in our will, it may come in our emotions later on… I have experienced freedom in so many ways in my life but as time goes on I learn that there are more areas within me that need to be freed, and even the areas I am more than aware of are still yet to find that place of true freedom. Life is an untangling of ourselves and with each loosened knot comes a little more freedom and space. I am thankful for God that He has brought me the most freedom into my life, and each day I trust him and follow His ways it comes in increasing measures. I realise that I…

Enriched through Experience….

~Enriched through experience~ Over the last few months I’ve been able to see so clearly the growth that is happening in me. For so many years feeling somewhat handicapped by life and unable to fully or properly deal with the hard lessons that came along I’ve slowly gained enough courage to want to work things out that go wrong or are difficult or unpleasant. Usually… I lived with some of the things that caused me pain… Fear held me in place… But gradually I learnt that pain was too high a price for me and that the price of confronting things in a gentle but firm way was far better for me… We’re always taught to communicate and express but I didn’t have a voice… I really didn’t. Fear had clammed my voice and when I look back now… It’s taken the last 22 years to even begin to really reclaim it… In SO many areas of life. I’ve lost things…

~May I have this dance?~

~May I have this dance?~ Life is a dance and you choose which dances you participate in… What a wonderful picture! This is a picture that my friend shared with me tonight. Will I choose to dance every time I am invited to participate? There are some dances we need to learn not to join in with. There are dances that we are so familiar with that as soon as we hear the music are feet start moving, even before we get up to take part, there is melody that we hum along with, but should we? There have been many dances in my life and many a dance that I have needed to bow out of…. but the other people sometimes can’t dance unless we participate and because we have done it so many times its not easy.   The people we dance with are usually the people we…

~The Hard Way or the Easy Way?~

. ~The Hard Way or the Easy Way?~ As long as you live you learn… Whether you like it or not you learn… You may use what you learn or not… But either way you are going to learn… Thing is no one wants to learn the hard way! If you learn the hard way, then you really learn a lesson! Just something to think about…. ~Cam Richmond~ Please visit: http://www.facebook.com/lightforlifepage http://www.facebook.com/sayaprayerforme http://www.facebook.com/theanswerIvefound http://www.facebook.com/lovewithoutexpectationspage http://www.facebook.com/pages/AmazingEternalGrace

Floating… The test of trust…

.ƸӜƷ. THOUGHT FOR THE DAY ƸӜƷ. The test of trust… Since I have been out walking regularly again this last few months, and sharing thoughts and ponderings with you, there has been a recurrent theme. It’s been all about water, the ocean and the sea. An image of me floating in the sea is equivalent to the trust game. I may have shared this with you before but when I was a young child at a friends birthday pool party I nearly drowned. At least that’s what it felt like to me. I managed to get myself out and I never told anyone about this incident. To me this is symbolic of where I learned look after myself, perhaps allow fear in, and not trust other people? After this incident, from this point I refused to learn how to swim at school. I went with other kids in my class…

The One Who Goes After the one…

  ~The One Who Goes After the one~ “What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them goes astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine and go to the mountains to seek the one that is straying? And if he should find it, assuredly, I say to you, he rejoices more over that sheep than over the ninety-nine that did not go astray. Even so it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish. ~Matthew 18:12-14 NKJV~ The one, and then the one, and then the one… this is how Jesus takes care of us, we are not just part of a collective we are ‘one’ to him, one unique loved individual. Jesus tells the story of the Shepherd leaving the 99 to go after the one, and if we do nothing  else then…
