The Rocks Cry Out

2022-09-12T18:02:09+00:00

Who is the True God except the Eternal? Who stands like a rock except our God? The True God who encircled me with strength and made my pathway straight. Psalm 18:31-32   Excerpt from The Rocks Cry Out by Jody Thomae, available on Amazon: "When the Pharisees told Jesus to make his disciples stop crying out in worship as he entered Jerusalem on a donkey, he replied, “I tell you, if these [worshipers] were silent, the very stones would cry out” (Luke 19:40). He was possibly referencing a passage in Habakkuk 2:11 that says that the stones in the wall and the rafters in [...]

Sewing Seeds of Grace

2022-01-12T23:34:59+00:00

“A seed doesn’t struggle to become a tree. It simply unfolds in grace.” (Chopra) Everything a tree needs to become a tree: grand, enriched with life-giving nutrients, and full of color—is inside the seed. The tree doesn’t have to strive to reach its fullest potential. Everything needed for growth is present in the seed long before it breaks open, travels through the dark unknown, and bursts through the soil. This is true with all life. It is astounding to consider the abundant life force in every seed.  2 Peter 1:3 states, “His divine power has given us everything we require for [...]

Both Weary & Rejoicing

2021-12-17T17:32:30+00:00

When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy.  Matthew 2:10   BOTH WEARY AND REJOICING   “A Thrill of Hope the Weary World Rejoices” – this line, from the classic Christmas carol, “O Holy Night,” touches my heart in a new way this year. Weary AND Rejoicing, I had honestly never fully considered these two things happening simultaneously, yet the line indicates such an event. Choirs of carolers and Christmas programs alike belt out this verse in joyful jubilee. Where have I been? Was I even listening? Sometimes you cannot unsee what you have seen. Suddenly old things [...]

Reflect & Respond

2021-12-01T14:47:05+00:00

“Now all of us, with our faces unveiled, reflect the glory of the Lord as if we are mirrors; and so, we (respond) being transformed, metamorphosed, into His same image from one radiance of glory to another, just as the Spirit of the Lord accomplishes it.” 2 Cor. 3:18 THE VOICE Is my face veiled or unveiled?  My response upon reflection; why would we have veiled faces? What does one’s face reflect? This verse is referencing the Old Testament account of Moses coming down from God’s glory on the mountain and the people could not handle the brightness of God’s glory [...]

Hurry Up To Slow Down

2021-12-01T14:25:26+00:00

So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger." Luke 2:16 (NIV) "Hurry up! We're going to be late to the choir concert!" "Come on guys. Help me tidy up before our guests arrive." "Is it 6 a.m. already? I gotta get to that door buster sale as soon as it opens so I don't miss out on the deals!" With the holiday season upon us, the music at the mall announces that folks are dreaming of a white Christmas. That may be true. But in reality, many women are dreaming of something else [...]

A Place Where God Spoke

2021-11-01T13:52:22+00:00

  Abram passed through the land to the place of Shechem, as far as the terebinth tree of Moreh. And the Canaanites were then in the land. (Genesis 12:6) The very place where Abram stopped, Shechem, we find the terebinth tree of Moreh. The word for Moreh in Hebrew means “to throw, to shoot, to teach” and came to mean “a place where God spoke.” This is where God spoke to Abram—in fact appeared to him. Now it shall be, when the Lord your God has brought you into the land which you go to possess, that you shall put the [...]

Chakras and Christianity

2021-10-13T15:58:01+00:00

Several years ago I became quite curious about the subtle body.  "Is this Jesus approved?  What does the bible say about this? Am I offering a spiritually safe practice to students?"  There is so much out there and even more differentiating opinions within the Christian faith.  I needed to carefully study for myself.  Let’s explore the science and scripture of our somatic energy.   Chak·ra /ˈCHäkrə/ Noun noun: chakra; plural noun: chakras (in Indian thought) each of the centers of spiritual power in the human body, usually considered to be seven in number We all accept the energy of the body that [...]

Sacred Sound

2021-10-13T15:26:26+00:00

This summer, my friend traveled back home to Nepal. She was kind enough to purchase an authentic, crystal singing bowl and bring it back to me. Since I was already obsessing over the sounds and benefits of these glorious bowls, I wanted to incorporate sound baths in my yoga practice. Sound therapy, with Tibetan singing bowls, is an ancient form of regeneration. The first bowls were made from an alloy of various metals and were used nearly 6000 years ago in the Far East. Besides their traditional use for meditation, Tibetan singing bowls are used for deep relaxation and muscle regeneration, [...]

RECLAIMING YOGA AS A CHRISTIAN HEALING TOOL

2021-09-16T16:01:38+00:00

For real change to take place, the body needs to learn that the danger has passed and to live in the reality of the present. ~Bessel van der Kolk, MD (pioneer in the field of traumatology) in The Body Keeps the Score I have already written about my journey listening to the voice of God as I’ve explored yoga as a creative Christian practice. I also want to share another reason behind my exploration of yoga as I’ve sought the Lord’s will and wisdom in this somewhat tricky and controversial issue as a follower of Jesus Christ. I am deeply passionate about helping [...]
