Stop Looking For Love . . .

August 20, 2012

Okay, the more I read of the work of Rumi, the more I love his work!  This quote is so very true . . . let’s knock those walls down and live deep without our souls!  A favorite priest of mine often speaks of living deep, and his love of Jesus is clear and Jesus’ love of him and for each one of us is reflected so clearly by  . . . listen to what Rumi says about love.  His words are so filled with hope!

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” Rumi
 
I can tell you honestly that the more I find brick walls within me and knock them down, the more I learn about the love of my precious Jesus and the more I realize how much I love Him!  Let knock down those barriers, shall we?

Life In Full Color!

June 25, 2012

My life always seemed okay.  I went about doing my thing.  I didn’t see a need for making changes but there came a day when I met someone who made me question . . .

Suddenly, it seemed my life as I’d always known it lacked color.  I hadn’t noticed it before. 

I knew this man “knew something” I was missing out on . . .

This man had something I didn’t . . .

I began to pray for “some of that” in my own life . . .

He knew Jesus . . .

It was confusing at first, for I’d known about Him all my life . . .

The man I met and heard preach had something more . . .

I prayed some more and when I ran out of words, I heard His voice . . .

Knowing about someone is not the same as knowing Him . . .

The Lord wants to be close and personal with us . . . with me . . .

So I invited Him, and He was there waiting . . .

I saw His smile and tears in His eyes, just like the man who preached that day . . .

He had been waiting to get close to me since before my birth . . .

Suddenly, my life changed! 

It had color where there had only been black and white . . .

It had new direction, patterns, where there’d been just flat land . . .

 

It still has challenges yet now He’s holding my hand . . . carrying me!
