Aloha Friends! There is nothing more exciting than helping someone truly meet Christ, and discover the joy of expressing and experiencing their relationship with Him, Holy Spirit, and Papa God; through their gifts, callings, and story. The Trinity is so personal and wise in Their ways. They want us to truly enjoy the journey with Them and show us their outlook!
Often this journey called life can be skewed through our own perception of what we think it should look like, or what we've been taught. As we grow in God, our perceptions change; thank the Lord! We move to new heights, to see as He does. It often comes through seasons of deconstruction, expansion, and growing paradigmal pains. But that's where spiritual muscles are born, revelation is had, and maturity is gained, right?! :) We're all truly learning how to receive, follow, and flow with our Personal Tour Guide, a.k.a Holy Spirit. What a dear friend and close companion!
We have the heart to support and encourage people going through difficult times in their life. Giving them a fresh new perspective to overcome things like; insecurity, rejection, betrayal, disqualification, fear, financial difficulty, relationships, marriage, health problems, "wilderness" seasons, trials, disillusionment, frustration, religion, hope deferred, disconnect with God and others, dreams lost, etc. Like you, we have gone through the mental, physical, and emotional pain of life; living out of survival mode! Life's circumstances can certainly throw us all for a loop. The good news is, we are all designed to thrive! God has placed a tremendous bouncy within us! It will surface with such amazing grace and freedom, bringing us into the clear, as we align to His thoughts and ways towards us. Allowing ourselves to unhook from all the unnecessary heavyweights, keeping us stuck. Grab hold of His Ultimate Life Saver called UNCONDITIONAL LOVE and come aboard the END OF EFFORT!
As believers who have tasted the real and also walked through the doors of religion, we have done our share of sitting in its belly of a whale for a while. Being shaped and formed by its environment, then mutually spit out, praise God! We know it can be quite the process-wading through the maze and well-eaten bones of religious tradition. Full of systematic antics, competition, & "laced-doctrinal agendas, too many to count! Many, if not all of us, had a heart longing to discover the pure Truth and community of the one we fell in love with, to begin with! Jesus-our Savior, Papa God, and Holy Spirit! They always had their door open for us, full of love & simplicity! Just as in the garden of Two Trees, there have always been Two Doors, or Pathways to follow. One of Truth, Love, and Relationship with The Trinity, or The Counterfeit DIY path of self-effort, striving, survival, servitude, and independence, to name a few. For those of us who blindly and innocently followed the Path of Religion, like sheep... It became like Survivor, The Reality Show! Glorious and thrilling at first with Enticing rewards which honored our strengths, giving us immunity! Producing a King of the hill mentality; trying to prove ourselves at any cost! Only to find ourselves shipwreck and walking the planks of our own self-efforts! Thrown overboard by the religious spirit and such! Into our true awakenings and freedom found in God's abundant grace. Some chose to remain captive by the fear of the system. They made "trades" swearing to loyalty's silence, for "food" rations and small positions to maintain their image. Knowing and turning a "blind eye" to the ugly truth of this DIY System operating apart from God.
The loss was certain, and many became castaways on "deserted islands" within and without. Disillusioned, heartbroken, and feeling as though it was the end for them. Wilson, anyone?!! Our make-believe friend(s) and security systems were gone! Many of us can relate to several parts of the movie- Cast Away. Yet, little did they know their rescue ship a.k.a. End of Effort was at hand and approaching, by their True Beloved Savior, Himself!
The path and door of Religion have always been full of works, striving, and penance. To a distant, angry-faced God. A picture man drew up with their own reason, logic, misunderstanding, and agenda. With the Trinity, it's just the opposite. Mind you; there are still good houses and hubs of faith out there that Host them. ;) You'll recognize these places by their fruits and flavor! Celebrating God and humanity. Always do a taste test first! ;)
The Trinity is more generous and loving than you'll ever know! They have always been ONE with us! They're the kindest and most sacrificial family you'll ever meet! Packed full of UNCONDITIONAL LOVE! Their nature is to bless, give, love, forgive, etc...We're just waking up and out of the Mirage of a "bad apple bite"! Papa God's dream has always been to bring us back into the realization and union that we are His family and always have been! His Royal Sons and Daughters, gifted with the Earth and beyond, fully restored.
He has paid the price, purchased the tickets, and welcomed us all aboard! Bringing us back into our original blueprint and "Aloha designer wear"; Clothed in Christ's Spirit!" Fashioned with red "slippers" and bags full of redemptive gifts! All waiting to be unpacked and enjoyed by everyone!
Roman. 8:9 (mir)... Anyone who does not see themself fully clothed and identified in the Spirit of Christ, cannot be themself.
