More Stuff I Posted on Facebook

Trust ur instincts 2day, & don't ignore the still, small voice (get my teaching from last night)...go with the flow, but don't give up @ the first sign of resistance...sometimes u just need 2 push thru a little 2 get 2 where u need 2 b...& never underestimate the power of a decision......everything around u 2day just may b waiting 4 u 2 decide what u want...once u do, your world will begin to respond accordingly...

Ultimately, going "from glory 2 glory" is a good thing, but the phrase literally means 2 go "from incarnation 2 incarnation"..."from birth 2 birth"...something has 2 die b4 something else can live...(a daunting, if not terrifying, premise)...if something n u, ur world-view or consciousness is dying, it may just b making room for something better...embrace the process...remember resurrection always follows death...

I already tweeted this, but again I say I think that 2day I may possibly have been n the best Palm Sunday service ever...thnx, P. Judah, 4 the branches...thnx, Sha, P. Machion, P. Scott, Box Stars, Nation of Worship, & every1 & any1 else (thnx, Phil, 4"Alpha Theology"...brilliant!), thnx, weather, 4 being nice...thnx, Jesus, 4 riding n2 Jerusalem, & n2 Ur destiny...now, back on the road 2 Nashville...

"I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living." (Psalms 27:13 - NKJV)...don't lose heart today...the Lord is good, and you will see that goodness while you are still in the land of the living...the silence of those groanings which cannot be uttered m...ay be deafening at times, but His promise is sure...

Bishop, as is generally the case, the writing from your perception is so very on point, I like this combo of FB, twitter, and blog.

Trusting instincts, heeding the still small voice, pushing through, deciding. I have always done my best when trusting my instincts. Sometimes, I question them, and then everything seems to get gummed up, I become unauthentic. Even in these last few days I have simply decided to go with my instincts and enjoy the peace in it. Yes, The promise is sure, and is in this experience, and many others.

Authenticity and faultless perception seem very similar to me, like harmonizing ourselves with God. Who we are is who we are. Open and exposed, raw, tastefully unrefined.

I do not know how many here are ‘Saving Grace’ fans on TNT. Tonight was the first show of the final season. So very raw, as she experienced the height of openness to God, she went into her own depths, almost as if freed by the height, she could dive into those depths, as all other trappings and illusions were dispelled, she came face to face with everything she did not understand, but tried to. As she came closer to abandoning herself to God, she abandoned herself to everything she had resisted, God and otherwise.

There have been other series that have portrayed God in each of our lives, but this one seems to be the most, raw, real, with fear, doubt, love, righteousness, peace, and the extremes that appear as we open to it all, fearlessly. I have not seen a series on general television that has ever attempted to portray this as openly. Very enjoyable.

Sunday's service was great. The palm leaves idea was a hit. It was great seeing the congeration waving the palm leaves with the choir/praise team. If that's a taste of Easter Sunday bring it on.
It's Gonna Be Off The Hook!!!
