Thankful for Simplicity~

I am so thankful for the simplicity that is in our GOD...to know Him is to LOVE Him...to love Him is to OBEY Him...to obey Him is to dwell in PEACE and REST! :) There is safety within the bounds of our Father. He provides what we need to live and love and abound in every good work...because I can TOTALLY TRUST Him, I can live in faith-not fear; in wonderment-not worry; in great joy-not despair!! HalluYAH! :) I'm so very very thankful.

I am blessed beyond measure to be able to live such a fulfuilled life, because HE has given me LIFE! :) Now do not misunderstand, in our culture we tend to immediately assosiate 'fulfillment', 'success', and 'blessings' with financial/material gain or possession-- NONE of which I'm implying....No, HIS LIFE is so much MORE than THAT. Treasures that cannot be offered by anyone or anything other than our Father. As we draw near unto Him and embrace Him...we are filled to overflowing...as if He cannot contain Himself in His delight for us :) What a joyous place to live!

 When we draw near unto YaHWeH and behold 'WHO' He is...we are faced with a choice: to embrace Him or to resist Him. To embrace Him is to embrace ALL that 'is' Him...every opinion and judgement that He holds...every command of His will and heart...every 'thing' that "makes Him" WHO He IS. To resist Him, is to be as the children Isreal...they beheld Him at the mount and told Moses  to face Him FOR them-they themselves resisted...they also resisted Him as their King, desiring an earthly king (as all the other nations around them-seeking to be as 'the world' instead of receiving GOD's desire for them). And couldn't we go on and on about the many many times Isreal resisted our Father instead of embracing Him with their whole heart? And can't we go on and on about our own choices...resisting Who GOD "IS" instead of embracing Him whole-heartedly? But I'm thankful that He has chosen to show us Who He is through His Son, our beloved Messiah. I'm thankful He has chosen to extend His grace and mercy to us and He makes them new every morning...Great is His faithfulness!!

Choosing to live within our GOD and to embrace the life He has chosen for His creation...and then experiencing All that He desires for us....isn't it THAT SIMPLE? :)

Just some thoughts...

Life~ What is life? What is living? Is it merely exsisting? Aren't these questions the very same questions that have been pondered for generations? Why do we feel we must know? Why do we feel there must be a meaningful reason for exsistance?

Could it be that "we" have 'eaten from the tree of knowledge' , and in our quest to "be as God" -as the serpant beguiled Eve- we, too, have fallen into the same discontent... and, therefore, our 'pride of life' is never satisfied? We are not content with "just living", it leaves us feeling insignificant and unimportant- we must feel that we matter, we must 'make a difference', we must 'leave something behind' so extraordinary that it will ensure that we are never forgotten.

At some point in time, to some degree or another, it seems we all face the same feelings of 'needing' to 'know' the 'true' MEANING OF LIFE... and therefore the true meaning of our 'own' life-- from the innocent questions of the youngest child to the 'deeper questions' of the (so-called) great philosophers... we all want to know: WHAT is all this about??

Hmmm... maybe-just maybe-it's not for us to know. Maybe it's for us to simply live... to live the life our Creator has given us-and living it the way He has instructed us, to please Him and to bring Him pleasure. Maybe it's enough to live and love and just "be", until He decides it's time for eternity. He placed Adam in the garden He had planted and simply told him to "keep it"... it is that simple. Our lives are to be obedient to the One who created us.

Our life is a gift and we should be mindful that we are the created, and HE is the Creator; that we see in a glass darkly... our eyes only see the threads of His tapestry: only He sees the full picture. Can we not be content in that? Can we not "just live"-- for Him? "Just be" what He has created us to be... human beings with the capacity to communicate and love and live in this earth He created us to live in; having communion with Him and one another; doing good and being good; loving and being loved. That's enough.

"We" need not matter: He matters. "We" ARE insignificant: He is Supernal. "We" are but dust: HE IS ALL IN ALL... and I'm so glad He is!!!
