Blogging is a Moving Meditation.

BLOGGING as a MOVING MEDITATION: Liminality's thin passage untangles as it weaves, fits in the ineffable nooks and crannies of my heart's prayer wall, like the cracks in pavement, mile markers on the road, windblown whimsical napkin poems written in eyeliner.

River

I want to swim in the river of His love for us where ever it may lead. I want to taste and see that the Lord is good. I want to share it with all who dare to trust. From the deserts to the mountain tops of His Spirit. He's calling us to trust that the water will not over take us. I also want to be that cool cup of water that others may drink from as well. Can we splash in it as children? This river is real... It is Living Waters. To wash in, taking a bath in His Spirit, to dive deep, to float fearlessly out where the lines from the banks are distantly faint. This is my thought for this day. This is His heart for Me and His kids. Come play with me. Come touch the deep. Posted by Picasa

Painful eyes...

My spirit is heavy today... and i'm not sure as to why. My physical frame has been hurting a lot today and i'm sensing that its more to it than just the barometric pressures in the atmosphere. It's as though there is a storm in the spirit that is brewing and i'm looking from the watchtower surveying the horizon. I feel the cries from the saints that are just tired and need a long rest. Some have been battling for a long season. Yes, some would say.... "the joy of the Lord is your strength" and that is good and true- but sometimes when spoken can fall flat, because there seems to be little mercy behind it.
I feel the Lord speaking.... "will you weep with Me ... for I look and see that some are afraid to feel what I feel. My heart for My children breaks ... will You weep With ME?" It appears that this is a season where what can be shaken will be... though i know that things are by His hand or at times through it, anything that is not quickly brought to the cross will be a stumbling block. Brennan Manning's book "Ruthless Trust" goes to some of the heart of the matter. There are really times when the verse.... "when having done all stand" screams in my spirit. In the standing there are tears and sometimes it's trusting beyond reason because the battle seems to be getting stronger and darker.
With everything that is in the news over His beloved Israel, the thing that stands out to me is defiant questioning as to Israel's right to exist. For Iran to declare the total destruction of Israel echoes the deeper call to the right of identity. The anti-Semitic spirit that is pushing it's agenda is not just against the Jews... but also against Jesus, for He Was and Is a Jew. It also reminds me of the spirit of Cain... where brother kills brother. Dissension seems to be abounding in the camp. What i believe i'm sensing is the amount of dis-unity in the body. We are brothers and sisters and unity in Love is what the enemy fears most.
For "love covers a multitude of sins"... and if we can Love.. we can cover eachother- to see through the Cross is the High Ground in the Spirit. He was raised up....
I want to see things through His eyes... even when it's painful. Shalom all- cathryn

Worship Night

The first Friday night of the month is a worship night with Jonathan Helser and Stephen Roach with all the levities from Songs of Water.... www.aplacefortheheart.org - so ya all can check out the passion. Tonight we got to bless Stephen ... he's working on a worship CD... It's awesome to see the Body of Christ come together with the only agenda being to Worship! At one point we got the privilege to lay hands on Stephen and Sarah (his beautiful wife)- and SING a blessing over him with tongues of fire. To see things birth in the heavenlies and have it done on earth AS it IS in heaven causes my every fiber to sing. A shofar sounded in the Spirit this night..... this is a season of new birth. The breath of God is blowing on the flames in our hearts.... to trust anew... to believe the impossible, to say YES to His Kingdom coming!!! Father breath a fresh wind of Your Spirit on our hearts. Let Your Kingdom come... and let it be done on earth as IT IS IN HEAVEN!
The Spirit and the Bride say Yes ...... and COME.
Love to you all .... to the deepest places! Cathryn
