Dancing in the Storm

If you have been following my last couple postings about the New Journey, here is a slammer…The Hubs lost his job.  We are officially unemployed.

Running to I AM, this is what He said…(italicized words are from I AM)


Well today is the day Daddy.  Today is The Hub’s last day on the job.  After several days of letting it sink in, it is here and I don’t know my emotions.  They are all over the place.

I know my daughter and all you need to do is rest.

I don’t know how to do that.  Yes your yoke is easy, I know, but how can I rest?

By not worrying about tomorrow.  Not worrying about the future or what will happen.  Keep your eyes on Me and you will walk through this storm.  Not run but walk.  As the rain starts, most people run to seek shelter yet few walk.  Enjoy the rain as it falls down on you and cleanses, refreshes, satisfies you.  Don’t be afraid to get a little wet now and then.  You take a shower every night, right?

Yes

Are you afraid of water in that controlled setting?

No

So why be afraid of the rain, water, when I’m controlling it?  Rest as the water runs down your beautiful body.  Let it not only cleanse you but refresh you too.  Storms of life are for a limited time.  It doesn’t rain forever so in the meantime find the joy in the water, rest and sit down in it and let me do My work. 

Well I can’t argue that

No you can’t and you shouldn’t.  Let Me. You rest


Wow, all I can say is WOW!  Looking at Matthew 7:25-34 during the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus talks about worry.

“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in bars, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.  Are you not much more valuable than they? (26) Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?(27)”

“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.  Each day has enough trouble of its own (34)”

Who can argue that our Daddy will provide for His children if we just rest and know in our hearts we will be okay?

Update – The New Journey

It has been a while since my last posting.  A lot has happened and I wanted to share.

We continue to follow the path I AM has said to follow, me not working and The Hubs on 45% pay reduction.  Actually it is 50% as of recently.  Amazingly the finances are working out and we haven’t changed our tithing amount regardless of income.  If you look at Malachi 3:10:

Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.” (NIV)

I AM is pretty clear, He will provide!  We have received blessings beyond what we could imagine.  Blessings of a stronger marriage, stronger bonding of our children/family, stronger communication and conflict resolution skills.

I like to use the comparison of a couple married for 50+ years and they enter retirement, together, after years of working independent jobs.  There will be times of confusion, tension and misunderstandings as the couple increase time together.  Instead of the man running out the door at 5:00am to work, he is crawling out of bed at 9:00am while the woman is already doing a load of laundry at 7:30am.  Each has their own set agendas without talking to one another.  Granted, when they were married, they became one flesh (Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:5; Ephesians 5:31) yet sometimes the hands don’t talk to the stomach.  And this is what happened to us.

After several tears and frustration talks, we are on a different road.  A better road.  The kids look forward to The Hubs being home as do I.  We might not be able to go out to eat as much but overall we are a stronger unit.

And every door I knock on for me to reenter the work force is not answered.  I believe I AM wants me exactly where I am.  Home.

And as I am home, He is returning me to the Garden of Eden.  Taking me back to the beginning where I AM created everything necessary for man to survive and thrive, before modern man.  I AM put everything in that garden.  Why have we ventured so far away from nature?  Why do we automatically turn to modern man, or what I call “Google” for instant gratification?  Why don’t we turn to I AM for everything?

Part of these last few months involved me learning more about eczema.  My preemie is battling a skin rash that doctor’s have labeled eczema.  After reading western, eastern and modern medicine approaches to treating eczema, I turned to I AM and the Garden of Eden.  And based on I AM’s guidance, we are treating the eczema naturally with herbs and homemade lotions.  It is only 2 weeks into treatment however I know I AM will heal my preemie.  And I will learn how to return to Eden and stray away from modern medicine.  More to come, join me on this journey.
