Becoming Whole: Week 9

Hello My Beloved Esthers,

If you have noticed over the past few weeks, I have been uncovering things we say in our culture that may not align to God’s truth and thus hinder our freedom. Much of this language has become so apart of us that we don’t even realize it could be the very thing sabotaging our journey. It seems so innocent to say, “Don’t get your hopes up,” and boy we have all used it. However, we learned a few weeks ago where the simple phrase comes against the very thing that takes us into the secret place.

Hope is the anchor to the soul that takes you behind the veil. Hebrews 6

It is also the very thing that causes us to be sick at heart.

Hope deferred makes a heart sick. Proverbs 13:12

We also talked about how we can say that we don’t have to see eye to eye to walk hand in hand and how it goes against the power of agreement. {Can two walk together, except they be agreed? Amos 3:3} We try to walk with people seeing differently not realizing that it removes the power of us coming together as one.

I mentioned the past few days how the Father woke me up singing, “Jesus loves me this I know,” to reveal that far too many of us believe we are loved because the Bible says so rather than because we have experienced that love. Interestingly I had two women tell me that the same morning I woke with the song, “Jesus loves me” in my head they did also. Wow!!! There has certainly been a theme of uncovering little lies that keep us from truth... Truth that brings freedom!

So today I have yet another....

My dear friend is a teacher and she was sharing with me Friday night how she was going to tell her class the other day that all are created equal, when she stopped realizing that it too is a lie. Now our Declaration of Independence may state this with good intention to assure that all people have equal rights...

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, and that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights, and that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.

But in truth, we are not created equal but rather UNIQUE. I am by no means coming against the nation and it’s desire to create equality, but rather the lie that would stir us to desire to be like others. This same lie may drive us to compare or compete to be seen or noticed or to look like someone else. It may also cause us to shrink back because our gifts and talents in our eyes don’t measure up to others. It seeds us with striving so that we can feel validated to even exist instead of embracing that we are created divinely and uniquely to lend our verse to the symphony of life. The Word of God even says that we don't need all ears or eyes but that it takes each part to bring together the body, right? So we should celebrate our uniqueness not tolerate it or run from it!

This week we will look at our heart and brain connection as we come close to the end of our book. It’s great news that our brains are neuroplastic and have the ability to be transformed. We don’t have to strive or conform or compete or compare, but simply surrender to Divine Love to give us an experience with Him that is greater than any experience that comes against His word. I hope this journey is leading you to encounter the Father unlike you have before, and encountering Him you are finding who you really are....Beloved!
