"Broken Curse"

I've watched you look at me.
When I see that glazed look in your eye,
I realize that what you see is yourself reflected in me.

Disdain and disappointment etched into your face
as you realize that I have not run the race;
the race that you should have run 
but instead put me in your place.

Love, nurturing, guidance and discipline;
all the things I should have been given,
instead replaced with guilt, shame, condemnation and ridicule.
How could I have disappointed you?

One generation after another abused and discarded.
Will anyone ever love this one who is broken-hearted?

Never intended to live up to your expectations.
Given a purpose and a destiny;
designed to make history.

A history for my own son
where all generational curse is gone.

And maybe one day 
when I see you looking at me,
instead of disappointment and disdain,
I will catch a glimpse of approval
from the one whose love has now become unconditional.

The Jesus Approach

A couple/three years ago the Lord set me on an Intensive:
Training for Life & Relationships course.
It's what I like to call "The Jesus Approach".

It's no coincidence that about a year or so ago 
I "stumbled" upon the ministry of John Crowder 
(the man in the video I am sharing today).

It's no coincidence either that, often, 
 shortly after Holy Spirit reveals, teaches or enlightens me 
on something that a 
John Crowder video will "pop up" on the very thing 
Holy Spirit and I have been working on!

Just this past weekend my husband and I consciously 
made the effort to put into practice, 
in a public arena, 
the very thing that John talks about in this video.

How so like God to lovingly confirm to us 
that we are, 
moving along on the path which He has placed us!

I must confess, though,
 my husband succeeded much more gracefully
 than I did with this opportunity!

Anyway, enjoy the video!

It's almost hard to believe that this is my first post for the month of February!
How could I possibly not have something to say

The truth of the matter is
that the Lord has been "marinating" me all month.

Marinating in His Love.
Soaking in His presence.
Being infused with His Spirit.
Absorbing the person He created me to be.

It has been less about
and more about
"Ahhhh" moments.

And let me say,
it has been mind-blowing phenomenal!
My days have been busier with 
day-to-day activities,
but my inner most being is more
at peace than ever before in my entire life!

God is SO good!

And fact is,
He has given you this same wondrous gift!
Have you opened it up and partaken of it?
Have you allowed yourself to "marinate" in Him?

If not, I encourage you to do so beginning this very moment!
You won't be sorry!
In fact, you'll wonder why you didn't do it sooner 
- EEK!
