Bridges on Our Spiritual Pathway

Seeing Clearly... Not Always!

"I will lead them by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do for them; I will not forsake them..." Isaiah 42.16

There are many things before us that we are unfamiliar with, blind to. Living in the Spiritual dimension designed by God for those who accept his leading, will always be an adventure and a challenge. His ways are not our ways.

We climb into the Ferris wheel hoping to have a glimpse at tomorrow, when the truth is we don't know the next second.

Learning to lean into God and be affected throughout our life requires a faith with uncertainty attached to it, just like everyone else... except he promises to lead and guide.

The beauty in this is that we are unique in every aspect of our person. A DNA unmatched by any other human being amongst the billions on this planet, and that you have a journey designed just for you.

Unfortunately many people succumb to the Ferris wheel and never search out their real potential or design. Some of us are not left with a choice do to circumstance, or particular world situation. But throughout history and in every culture are examples of those who broke the mold. There is a story for every generation.

Christianity throughout the ages has tried to create cookie cutter ideals, without much room for creativity and expression, but it did not stop the real thinkers and doers, the artists, musicians and revelators. Thus we have a broad spectrum of diversity. Not all is good, but not all is bad. Jesus said, "Let the wheat and tares grow together and the angels will sort it out in the end." (The Gospels, *Emphasis mine)

I'm not trying to bring a New twist to anything. What I am expressing is making ourselves available to hear from God as he leads by way of Holy Spirit. There will be bridges in the Spirit we will have to make a choice about crossing over, an unfamiliar path, a place that seems dark but will have a sudden appearance of light to it. A New way because we have not come this way before.

This is nothing New to God, he has been doing this since the creation of man. It's whether or not we want to follow. Jesus has not stopped saying,"I am the Way, Truth, Life... Come follow me... I put within you one whom I will send, and He will lead you into all truth... he will not speak on his own, but only what he hears..." (Book of John, *E M)

Holy Spirit who is the best guide into all truth, because everything that comes to him is from God, who speaks the creative word and from Jesus who is the Living Word. When he speaks, all things will line up with the Holy scriptures, God the Father and Jesus, because there is no division in them.

Many aged people, when asked, "Do you have any regrets about your life?" Most have said, "Yes, that I did not take more risks."

Riding the Ferris wheel may be a familiar and safe place, and most of us will not venture into the unknown.

Aren't you glad, here in North America that Columbus wasn't one to hang around Europe being contented. I know someone else might have done the journey later, but I really like his story and his style.

There are just too many things in this life, both in the Spirit and not to simply dismiss a journey into the heart of God. To want to know more about him and to understand his "ways."

The older I get the more my desire grows to know more, investigate more, reach a bit further and continue having God encounters. God encounters and experiences are a part of the riches afforded to us. He loves it when we chase after him. It is written; "Those who seek me will find me, when they seek me with all their heart." ( Jer*E M)

In the book of Ephesians Paul writes in his prayer for them this; "I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the spirit of wisdom and revelation so that you may know him better. I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints and his incomparably great power for us who believe." (Eph.1*E M)

Lewis and Clark are two well known adventurers who mapped out America. They made friends of the American Indians and learnt and shared in many things and experiences.

There is room in the heart of God for explorers. There are more things to know about him and knowledge to be gained. I believe that He holds the answers to those who ask the right questions.

There have been billions and billions of dollars spent on space exploration, sciences, medicine and billions still researching into further simplifying the electronic industry. Yet the inner exploration of spirit, soul and body largely remain untouched.

Scientists, neurologists, Dr's of every name are still baffled at how the human eye takes in thousands of megabytes of information, delivering to our brain and negotiates all the intricate pathways of this wonderfull creation. Leaving us with cognizance, relavance and a honeycomb storehouse of enlightenment and knowledge. "For we are fearfully and wonderfully made!" (Book of Psalms, *E M)

As it is written, "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what he has prepared for those who love him..." (1Cor. *E M)

I remain uncontented with just a Ferris wheel.

I am equally glad that God is too!
