Beauty is in its Time
Oh to understand the depths of God’s Love for all mankind. God is breathing on his people right now. God is the Master artisan. He is the master of ALL creation. He created the entire universe in six days. He created as a fact 100,000 types of trees in less then a week. Then he chilled for the seventh day. Could you imagine looking down at this piece of art you have created in less then a week, and knowing and being completely content that it is just the way it is created to look and be!
He manifested the most aero descent light from darkness and created the most incredible tapestry to and from every corner of the world. He has created color schemes and colors we do not even know about. He had the ideas to have fun rolling hills to white water river rushing valleys to snow cone mountains tops and bubbling blue grotto caves. He had the idea to even hide pure gold and precious rocks in special spots we as man kind are longing to search out. Oh the mystery of his creative heart!
We have the most magnificence author and creator as a Father. He invested this same gift in us. The very fullness of heaven and the gifting to re-create as he created. To also release creativity into something, and know that it already looks complete! This is the fullness of Love, The Kingdom of God: Inside of you and me. We have the most amazing dad in the entire world. He created the animals with matching mates that were exactly fit for each other. He created us with the same mindset that we are one of the most beautifully magnificent items here in this universe. He even created us bluntly said, more important then the Animals! We have dominion over them. I so wish I could of been with Adam when he got to name the species. How would you come up with this name of a carpet shark? Tasseled wobbegong ? I so dream how cool to of been Noah. He just said "come", he never even had to chase , yet and the species came two by two. That's dominion. Need I say more? The cool thing is There is also a perfect match that will be the exact fit for partnership only one person can fit in your life. We get together to cover this world with the knowledge of his glory.
How can you not love God for who he is. How can you not stop to look around you and just love God the creator for the multitudes of flavors? Here in New Zealand for the first time in my life I tasted passion fruit ice cream. It is stunning with the most potent flavor! Sour yet sweet crunchy bright colored orange seeds in a milky smooth cold vanilla cream. It is like heaven in the mouth.
It is so from that place the as we learn to love God for everything, because we actually see him in everything. I challenge you that as you begin to see God in everything, start to thank him for being in everything. As you start to thank him for being in everything, you will begin to see him in every part of yourself!
I have to confess I am always stopping at my latest food escapes here and thanking God for how wonderful the New Zealand butter tastes here.. Thank God for creating chocolate cake. He wants us to stop, smell the roses and really savour and saturate our lives with rich appreciation for all he has given us. This is our inheritance here on earth.
It is amazing to have a continual revelation of his identity in us. Each and everyday he wants us to look and find him In us. God did not create anything less then million dollar babies. That’s you and me. God did not create junk! He created BILLION DOLLAR ROYAL BABIES . You really have the universes greatest love manifestation inside of you!
Learning to love ourselves I think is such a challenge for many because we put so much emphasis on not focusing on ourselves, but others. It is such a trust also in God to truthfully appreciate all that he has invested into us, is just how he wanted us. He also invested us because he trusts that we will use what he gave us. Some of us he wanted a bit taller than others, and some shorter... some a bit hairier too. It’s all beautiful! God created diversity for such a wonderful reason.
It is such a beautiful season here in New Zealand. Though it is their `winter` It is still wonderful and lush. I continue to stand in awe of God each and every day as I discover and learn something new about all he has created. I breathe in the New Zealand air and it tastes like tropical honey to my soul. There is such a sweetness to the air here. It must reason why the people also I find so just so sweet they breathe in sweetness all year round! I ride my bike on fresh green grass and adore the voluptuous citrus trees busting out fruit, the gargantuan agave plants, the gardens of succulents. I am in an oasis of the worlds greatest designer.
I am so one of those people where I just love to people watch. You know I just love to sit in busy places and look at people go about their day. I just love spiders and critters too. Most people cringe, but I quite like bugs. They love to simply come and say hello some days and feel safe enough to want to build a home and web in my corners! I sometimes feel guilty about having to kill their homes they build in the house!
Learning to love ourselves and the very identity of heaven enveloped into us, is really from that place we can fully love others. Jeesh, friends I am speaking to myself first. Some days it is touch when you cant fit into your jeans (dang you too many wonderful Kiwis feeding me strawberry cream cake and lammingtons!)
Pure Love It is his greatest commandment. Love others as you love yourself...(and love Afgan cookies too! ) Love does not just have to look like something, but Love needs to feel like something. We need to be ok with what his love feels like inside of us. If we can’t fully love ourselves and his identity in us, his uniqueness in us, how can we love others? You cant keep faking to love other people if you don't love yourself. And if you are not happy with yourself then you are only fooling yourself when you try to be sincere in love to another. He wants our love to be so pure, so full of freedom and light knowing the revelation of him in us. This is life. For with him is the fountain of life, in your light I see light.
God is so beautiful. You are so beautiful because God lives in you. God lives within you. He loves the way he made one leg longer, he loves and knew the way he would give you bright red hair and big bushy eye brows! God created some people for stage appearances, but some he created for sound board appearances. I think it’s an ongoing revelation for life when we begin to love ourselves and how his blue chip of identity. It is something that is not something man can clone. Loves Pure Light is about shaping our identity, not just an image.
I just want to pour out so much love and joy for my generation. God has created eternity in the hearts of all. He makes everything beautiful in its time. He has put eternity and infinity of possibility inside of you. Your life is FULL of opportunities! Jesus! His goal for your life is just going to make his temple: You. More beautiful. You life is called for abundance and hunger only he can fill! Your life is a triumphal procession in him, from only Glory to glory! Sometimes it is a path we must bush-wack through ( bush wack = ripping down trees in the way of your path) , BUT it is still the promise he says you ONLY go from glory to glory!
Here are a few pictures of some of the wonderful creatures I have experienced and really appreciated this past season. I just love how God creates. His articulate detail. His uniqueness in sound and song. He made some to sing, and some to slap their wings. Some to simply lounge in the tree and eat. Now now… we must not envy, who would not love to site in a tree all day and eat eucalyptus and get high?. But remember he has given us all such a beauty for a purpose and a destiny. A purpose and destiny we can only fulfil. Sometimes we are not to fully know the purpose except the command to love how he made you and love others because you just know you are ok in your own skin. This is all part of heavens orchestra here on earth. As we are in unity first with Jesus and his love for us, in us. This is the incredible peace which surpasses all understanding: When we can fully comprehend the revelation of just how much God knew what he was doing when he invested his beauty inside of us. He only creates master pieces. You are master piece.
The Greatest Commandment:
One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?”
“The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. ‘The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”
“Well said, teacher,” the man replied. “You are right in saying that God is one and there is no other but him. To love him with all your heart, with all your understanding and with all your strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself is more important than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.”
When Jesus saw that he had answered wisely, he said to him, “You are not far from the kingdom of God.” And from then on no one dared ask him any more questions.
