Recapture Pieces of Peace, 29SEP

When mini chapters of life challenges close, there are so many possibilities for us to find ways to reflect.  One day I would like to get together at a particular restaurant where a bunch of us retreat planners had lunch Feb 1st 2015, the day I knew i was 100% with BELIEVING THAT JESUS WAS REALLY GOD’S SON and I was 100% with Jesus, it was the cap of 2 months awakening… years in the making…  my peace only brought after a shocking shaking up of my soul…

…and I want to sit at the window eating sweet potato fries, like I did that day, then go to the 911 garden where I knew – I just knew Jesus had captured me and I had accepted Him as my Lord and Savior after not even knowing I had to do that – that day I was lost driving and God placed me where I needed to reflect in my own mental slice of His garden.. and after revisiting that Garden then I want to go back to a friend’s place for hot cocoa…. I have a hunkering for those sweet potato fries and for a mental piece of an immense moment of God’s peace… both are best shared with friends…

I still feel I have to share my quiet time with not just the Lord but thru writing too, I feel I have to spill it out because I am still broken and needing to ooze about God’s immense love because it is the oozing cementing of that love within our cracks that soothes our brokenness… and I pray others will look for His love to heal them… Maybe someday I will not ooze as much but I knew when I started writing that I didn’t want to become complacent or embarrassed for saying that we need God to heal our brokenness…

The 911 garden for me is trying to find peace in recovered pieces, pieces of peace carefully gathered back from rubble, glued together with love, steel and tears, green grass and grief, water fountains of tears and the flowing living water of healings…. recaptures of the old peace to make new peace…

God’s peace is illuminated by His shining of Light that makes one overlook the darkness of everything else… and so, on 911, when love and hate crumbled together under the weight of the collapsing towers, that scene became a stratified rock of visual light and dark layers.. with knowing God as we do, I can picture the pieces of those crumbles becoming places where He had to scoop up layers of love back to Him, I see souls of love floating out of rubble, and darkness forever trapped down in the muck….

Light from God is so immense that it’s never going to be overshadowed by evil…

Light from God, is LOVE…. our coming to the light and coming to peace with the light is due to love… LOVE before a second coming shows up as oozing love that still seeps from Jesus’s first coming – actually from way before,  because Jesus as the Word made flesh means that in the beginning the Word was looking for us – all of God’s entirety saw us needing His Word… Light came to move us out of darkness, one piece of peace at a time.

God’s light makes even the worse evils that so much more minimal – but it doesn’t always feel that way when we are immersed in pain – oh how painfully we are reminded that we are human and life seems at best a mixture of stratified layers of pain and passion and peace… Life everlasting however will see us lift the LIGHTED lightened pieces of peace out of the rubble… we are to strengthen our hearts…

Personal challenges exist, worldwide pain persists, it’s our hope to focus forward to the beginnings of a beautiful new walk with the Lord, everyday… It is remarkable that He allows us to be pulled thru feelings of so much pain, bleeding out of our souls to only realize this whole time that He’s been trying to fill us up more with sticky ooey gooey oozing healing LOVE…

God is recapturing His peace – from us – for us – for Himself.  His peace is in pieces. He knows how to work thru us to piece it all back together… He loves us…

Let us all keep practicing peace so that pieces of peace will come to LIGHT…

Let us all Love His Peace…

Amen

Peace
