Root Living

Dec 15

His plans can not be thwarted.
The hushed scene of wonder lays open the realness of things.
Holy reverent tiptoeing results from living in the midst of what looks impossible.

Living on the surface of life with everything changing leads to Solomon’s words:
Meaningless, Meaningless. Everything is meaningless. Eccl 1:2
Living at the Root with sincerity’s clearness, the life of Jesus rises up like sap. Is this too much to believe ? Such a comfort, now I know how to pray.

God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.  II Timothy 1:7 NKJV

Oh to reflect a pattern of genuine trust  … to bear holy fervor knowing all is supernatural in faith.
For we walk by faith [we regulate our lives and conduct ourselves by our conviction or belief respecting man’s relationship to God and divine things, with trust and holy fervor; thus we walk] not by sight  or  appearance.  II Corinthians 5:7 AMP
Realness causes one to sit in the ashes & repent.

I’m convinced: You can do anything and everything. Nothing and no one can upset your plans. You asked, ‘Who is this muddying the water, ignorantly confusing the issue, second-guessing my purposes?’ I admit it. I was the one. I babbled on about things far beyond me, made small talk about wonders way over my head. You told me, ‘Listen, and let me do the talking. Let me ask the questions. You give the answers.’ I admit I once lived by rumors of you; now I have it all firsthand-from my own eyes and ears! I’m sorry-forgive me. I’ll never do that again, I promise! I’ll never again live on crusts of hearsay, crumbs of rumor. Job 42:2-6 MSG

Root living screams;  let it be.
Sanctuary.
Waiting will intensify the joy.
Fling every hindering thing to the winds & watch & see.
… in Your light do we see light.  Psalm 36:9 AMP
And they answered, Believe in the Lord [give yourself up to Him, take yourself out of your own keeping and entrust yourself into His keeping] and you will be saved … Acts 16:31 AMP

Three Advents Ago: Before Life’s Canvas Changed.

Life has meaning in Christ. One can find the number three steeped in spiritual history of hope. A canvas memory with gapping hole can be the place to peek through & see our forever good God. Nostalgic decorating themes can require holy courage.

What’s the Christmas Tree theme,  three years later?

Yep. Nostalgia.

“But instantly He spoke to them, saying, Take courage! I AM!” Matthew 14:27

Come up the mountain.
Look from the top.
Faith allows this view.
Looking with Jesus’ eyes.
His eyes seeing what is & what shall be.
My eyes believing He sees.
Dullness. Vanishes.
For we are where we look.
The air. Clear.
Fearing. No fear. {BRS}

“…Your rod [to protect] and Your staff [to guide], they comfort me.” Psalm 23:4

I am much acquainted with Your mercy.
