Treasure Hunt for Inner Strength & Beauty

As fellow sojourners in this life we help one another by reminding each other of who we really are.

If we know one another by the Spirit we get a glimpse of the greatness that is inside every soul.

We are called to inspire one another to become that hidden person.

When we perceive the gold hidden in that hunk of humanity we get a glimpse of one another’s real beauty. There are hidden treasures in each person waiting to be excavated. In a sense we are all miners, mining the gold in one another’s life.

The Spirit empowers us to see beyond personality’s and outward behavior to the unique calling and qualities that have not yet been unearthed. Our insights so often rouse these strengths in another and allow them to let go of the poor self-image that they have believed, releasing feeling of shame and inadequacy.

When we focus on those strengths in our fellow kinsmen it draws out and disempowers the poor self-image that has been dictating to them and influencing them to lead a counterfeit life.

It is amazing to me how the power of divine truth chases every thing that is inconsistent away.

When we begin to see the truth about our selves and others there is no longer room for those old images.

We need to be dazzled by the gold in one another and ourselves. We need the brilliance and the light of Gods truth to be the beacon that leads us to see how unique and powerful our authentic God created self is. Eventually we will be blinded to our own personal judgments and opinions that have created a distorted picture or image as we respond to the divine artist who is busy erasing that image to exposé the original masterpiece that He desighned us to be.

This earth is a treasure chest filled with the most brilliant gems waiting for us to mine in one another and ourselves. There are so many majestic possibilities that are waiting to be uncovered.

I have caught sight of who I am because others saw beyond what I was manifesting in the natural.

They saw the glimmer of who I was and began to mine that treasure in me with words of encouragement and sometimes with the pickaxe of love.

I am grateful that they took the time to look beyond who I thought I was.

I am reminded of those wonderful miners Grumpy, Happy, Sneezy, Doc, Sleepy, Bashful and Dopey. Each one of them was so unique and different from each other.

When Snow White saw them she saw beyond the grumpiness, the sleep deprivation the shyness. She saw the character that was hidden in their spirits and she drew it out with the love she had for them.  They in turn loved her and nurtured the strength back into her.

What a wonderful way to live life

Freedom

II Corinthians 3:17

“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.”


Image 4-30-18 at 12.23 PMFreedom is such an elusive gift.

There are moments that I am in the very grip of this magnificent attribute.

I am free to explore the heights of the heavens.

I can glide with the winds of freedom. This is such an indescribable gift.

I can glide with the winds of change unencumbered by my personal limitations.  I am aware that they are present, nevertheless they no longer control me; they are not present in me; they are obstacles meant to define and distract me.

I can now choose if they are here to serve me or if they are mindsets that will prevent me from soaring.

Choice is a gift that is so under-appreciated and abused.

It is this hidden treasure that is always available.

It appears to be buried in the “shoulds”, “shouldn’ts” and temptations of this world.

These are the thoughts that come to convince us we have no power or say-so in our lives.  The truth is choice is our God-given right to align ourselves with the Kingdom of God within or make are own way.  Choice is something God will never take from us.  He wants us to unwrap it and use it at every juncture of our lives.  When we do this, we will never feel we’re at the mercy of life but will be change-agents affecting life, co-creating with God.  He is waiting for us to join Him, traveling to destinations that take us to the heights of possibilities.  We can choose to soar to the heights of heaven or dive to the depth of the restraints of this world.  It is at these heights we can uncover and access the compass that will lead us to destinations we have only dreamed of.  There are regions and realms that are waiting for us to pursue them — we only need to choose to explore them.
