Risk to Become



Slowly, dwell upon each word, independent of the whole to experience a personal moment of journey from uttered prayer to spiritual practice, to being led to risk in your discipleship.

Gracious God, Creator and Abiding Presence;
Hallowed, humble and holy is your peaceful countenance. To encounter you is to abandon self, the ego of my humanness, the pride of what has transpired before, the sorrow of what has happened knowingly and unknowingly to cause separation, despair and woundedness. My encounter now is being in the present moment of vulnerable release, my offering of the entirety of self, even the very breath I breathe to “be” one with you. Receive my essence, my “me” as I enter a peace so pure,…. time is paused. Within this depth of knowing, ripples of grace enfold and flow, with unconditional lifeability, blessing each indrawn breathe with a smile connecting the inner and the outward of my soul and being. Quietness, awareness, peace, shalom abide. Breathe shallow not to disturb this gift. God is near, oneness is wholeness, time is eternal and no more…….Brrrrrreathe.

Choose to remain, or to pray, to discern, to become mindful of images, of emerging names, of ideas and feelings. Journal these leadings to prayerfully ponder and dwell upon, for each is a guided blessing of ministry in answer to the “Mission Payer”. “God, where will your spirit lead me today?” With courage follow the spirit into life lived. In faith borne out of your discernment, test the reality of guided empowerment. Risk to become a disciple and your belief will be transformed to knowing and pervasive joy .

May grace abide in your journey. Shalom for all.
