  • Ps. 106-107

    106: (Anon)
    This is just yet another rehash of the story of the Exodus
    This time, with a focus on the constant cycle between God destroying and delivering Israel and Israel disobeying and praising God
    Also, the author claims that his generations are just as sinful because they descend from the original Exodus generation who were so rebelious
    HERE ENDS THE FOURTH BOOK OF PSALMS

    107: (Anon)
    One of God’s super powers is being really really good to the Good and being really really bad to the Bad
    He’ll save from oppression and poverty, give you food, calm the sea and wind and guide you to your haven, and turn the desert into a luscious land
    Or, he’ll punish you for eternity with hard labor, poor harvests, and general badness

    [insert lengthy piece of theory explaining why this belief in a just world, while comforting, leads to some very unrealistic ideologies that demonize innocent people and glorify the worst]

    it’s so sooo hot today

    "Seek Yahweh, all you humble of the land, who have kept his ordinances. Seek righteousness. Seek humility. It may be that you will be hidden in the day of Yahweh's anger."
    Zephaniah 2:3 WEB

  • Waking up in a spiritual sense sometimes happens in one grand moment - a flash of light, a jolt of energy, a sudden and undeniable discovery of understanding - a moment of enlightenment where you’re never the same again. But more often than not, it happens little by little, on the way, during the journey, almost while you’re not noticing. It happens as you begin to embody who you are and participate in the life that is happening all around you and within you. You don’t decide to wake up, and you just do. You can’t wish it, pray it, fake it, or conjure it all up. It’s a commitment you make, and then you go about doing the work of living awake, aware, and alive in the world and in your own life. You listen, you love, you forgive, you ask for forgiveness, you decide to stop numbing (which doesn’t happen in an instant and takes a whole lot of work and strength - I get it, and I’m here for it), you practice turning off the TV, putting down your phone, looking your partner in the eye when you speak to them. You make a decision (and decide to continue to make it) to not rush your kids to sleep, to say ‘no’ more often to people you’re trying to please so you can yes more often to people you’re actually in love with. Moment by moment, day by day, experience by experience, you practice opening your heart to the life that is right in front of you, the one that you hold in your hands, the one that is yours. Having a spiritual awakening doesn’t have to happen during a sacred ritual, on a mountain top, with orchestral music, your best clothes on, and a cloud of witnesses. Paul wrote to his friends and said: “I pray that the light of God will illuminate the eyes of your imagination, flooding you with light, until you experience the full revelation of the hope of Gods calling — that is, the wealth of God’s glorious inheritances that God finds in us, Gods holy ones! I pray that you will continually experience the immeasurable greatness of God’s power made available to you through faith.”* What you wake up to is the fact that all of life is sacred. The cosmic and the spiritual are as everyday and ordinary as the coffee you drink and the burnt toast you eat. Divinely commonplace. Illumination happens in the strangest moments - while you’re gardening, taking out the garbage, reading a book, driving to work, cleaning dog #$%^ off your shoes. “I pray that you continually experience the greatness of God’s power made available to you” not through high and mighty acts or flowery words or grand gestures or peak moments of success and fortune, “but through faith.” Which is to say through your ongoing and growing sense of trust that is God is here, in this, where are you, now, already, no matter what. Take this prayer by John Philip Newell as your own: “Whichever way we turn, O God, there is your face in the moon and patterns of stars, in scarred mountain rifts and ancient groves, in mighty seas and creatures of the deep. Whichever way we turn, O God, there is your face in the light of eyes we love, in the salt of tears we have tasted, in weathered countenances east and west, in the soft skin glow of the child everywhere. Whichever way we turn, O God, there is your face; there is your face among us.” Mindful Prompt: Whatever it is that you have to today, practice opening your heart to it. Practice seeing God in it. Practice waking up to the holiness of being alive by waking up to the holiness of this moment, no matter what it holds. Continued in the series, “Wake Up To Your Holiness”, this week with a subscription in The Practice Co App. All the love, always… Liz 💛 *Eph 1:8

  • Wherever He entered, into villages, cities, or the country, they laid the sick in the marketplaces, and begged Him that they might just touch the hem of His garment. And as many as touched Him were made well.

    I personally felt the desire to just sleep all day. Also, I lacked the effort to work hard even for my exams a few months ago.

    (I have passed my exams, fortunately)

    But here’s something to share about effort for disciples.

    2 Timothy 2: 4

    Join with me in suffering, like a good soldier of Christ Jesus. No one serving as a soldier gets entangled in civilian affairs, but rather tried to please her commanding officer

    I think I spoke about military for a bit in previous posts but I will just say that military people

    -takes care of a nation

    -fights the enemy

    -wake up early

    -stay tidy and clean

    -motivated

    -has a leader

    -obeys the leader

    -works together

    There are more qualities that I may not know, but it is something to reflect upon.

    I know I am working on my tidiness and cleanliness, my ability to wake up early and even with the little effort, God has made a difference to my day and how I perceive the world. Without these steps, I lose sight of God’s dream of saving people from hell and I become a binge TV watcher and a self centred person and I had a itch to pick a fight with my family rather than fight against the devil.

    I am by no means perfect, but I do it to see a difference and keep asking for motivation to keep up.

  • 1 O give thanks unto the LORD; call upon His Name: make known His deeds among the people.

    2 Sing unto Him, sing psalms unto Him: talk ye of all His wondrous works.

    3 Glory ye in His holy Name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.

    4 Seek the LORD, and His strength: seek His face evermore.

    5 Remember His marvelous works that He hath done; His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth;

    6 O ye seed of Abraham His servant, ye children of Jacob His chosen.

    7 He  is  the LORD our God: His judgments  are  in all the earth.

    8 He hath remembered His covenant for ever, the word  which  He commanded to a thousand generations.

    9 Which  covenant  He made with Abraham, and His oath unto Isaac;

    10 And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law,  and  to Israel  for  an everlasting covenant:

    11 Saying, “Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance”:

    12 When they were  but  a few in number; yea, very few, and strangers in it.

    13 When they went from one nation to another, from  one  kingdom to another people;

    14 He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, He reproved kings for their sakes;

    15  Saying,  “Touch not Mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.”

    16 Moreover He called for a famine upon the land: He brake the whole staff of bread.

    17 He sent a man before them,  even  Joseph,  who  was sold for a servant:

    18 Whose feet they hurt with fetters: he was laid in iron:

    19 Until the time that his word came: the word of the LORD tried him.

    20 The king sent and loosed him;  even  the ruler of the people, and let him go free.

    21 He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his substance:

    22 To bind his princes at his pleasure; and teach his senators wisdom.

    23 Israel also came into Egypt; and Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham.

    24 And He increased His people greatly; and made them stronger than their enemies.

    25 He turned their heart to hate His people, to deal subtilly with His servants.

    26 He sent Moses His servant;  and  Aaron whom He had chosen.

    27 They shewed His signs among them, and wonders in the land of Ham.

    28 He sent darkness, and made it dark; and they rebelled not against His word.

    29 He turned their waters into blood, and slew their fish.

    30 Their land brought forth frogs in abundance, in the chambers of their kings.

    31 He spake, and there came divers sorts of flies,  and  lice in all their coasts.

    32 He gave them hail for rain,  and  flaming fire in their land.

    33 He smote their vines also and their fig trees; and brake the trees of their coasts.

    34 He spake, and the locusts came, and caterpillars, and that without number,

    35 And did eat up all the herbs in their land, and devoured the fruit of their ground.

    36 He smote also the firstborn in their land, the chief of all their strength.

    37 He brought them forth also with silver and gold: and  there was  not one feeble  person  among their tribes.

    38 Egypt was glad when they departed: for the fear of them fell upon them.

    39 He spread a cloud for a covering; and fire to give light in the night.

    40  The people  asked, and He brought quails, and satisfied them with the bread of heaven.

    41 He opened the rock, and the waters gushed out; they ran in the dry places  like  a river.

    42 For He remembered His holy promise,  and  Abraham His servant.

    43 And He brought forth His people with joy,  and  His chosen with gladness:

    44 And gave them the lands of the heathen: and they inherited the labor of the people;

    45 That they might observe His statutes, and keep His laws. Praise ye the LORD.

  • “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same?

    Matthew 5:43‭-‬47
