The Blue Lava Lamps in Life

~Through the lava in life look for the light~
~Through the lava in life look for the light~

Check out this snare...

Being thankful is essential, I would like to reflect on the snares of life while always looking for the light in the dark places.

A pup gets caught, tangled in a chain-link fence. Does puppy fight with desperation to wiggle free? Does he use every ounce of strength trying to get away from his situation? Was he able to shake himself loose on his own? You are the judge.

Check out the video below

Lava turns to light if our focus of thanksgiving is in the right place!

We are often like the pup stuck in the fence, getting distracted, running full force into something with no real concern or sense of consequence. After, reckless abandon, we can find ourselves caught hanging, even dangling by a slight grip, holding on with everything we have. Often we’re not reckless. We find ourselves caught in the traps of life by unyielding circumstance beyond our control. The fact is, in both situations, those we run into by omission of consequence, and those grabbing hold of us, the truth remains, neither is something we get out of on our own. We’re not always aware that it has nothing to do with luck!

How do we spend the time in between

Waking up to a new day there is an undisclosed allotment of time, so make it matter. It’s mesmerizing sitting in a quiet room, listening or not, yet still being able to hear the ticking of a clock. Close your eyes; the rhythmic clicks become soothing in their consistency. It’s a known fact that after one click the next will follow, that is unless they stop! We spend time with the questions about time. Here are the answers. Time stands still, and one day it ends!

We are human; we try to live in the now, but clicks can become overwhelming, at least until it happens. What you ask - until what happens?

The second-hand stops! The rhythmic click is inaudible, and there is utter silence. Not the silence of when things get quiet, the silence of not beating, clicking, ticking or breathing. These silences are rare, yet when they happen do we take them for granted?

In moments such as these, we pass the point of fight and struggle, reaching a place of surrender, releasing yourself, to peace. In that place, nothing matters. Here in this space, you are being held, holding you to the point of release and the safety of letting go.

This moment is it, folks, this time in between is where you meet the Holy Spirit as His presence surrounds you. There is nothing more amazing! It feels you're floating in a blue lava lamp; I suggest you go with it because this is a ride you will never forget. A trip you can’t take from your memory, it's with you, and you are in awe of the blessing when you get to do that ride again one day. And the best part is you can’t wait!

Be thankful it's time to prepare the way ...

The space in between is practice for the best ride ever

That space in between is where every moment here on earth becomes a practice for the best ride of your life. The ride home to the best reunion ever. The gathering where it matters not what you look like, what you wear or who you are, even what lava you had to get through to get there, because it is not about you, but it’s all about Him.

In, the above video the police officer took a wire cutter setting the pup free. Calling him the whole time, begging him to quiet himself so he could save him. Once the puppy settled, the patrolman could grab hold of the snare and clip it away freeing him.

After the pup releases, he ran straight to the one who freed him, wanting to stay right there in the safety of that patrol car. It is a sweet reunion mixed with shock by the patrolman! True freedom is better.

When released by God, He’s not shocked that we run to His side. Our Father is expecting your snare, and God plans for your return to Him. He plans your first surrender and your next. When you put Him on a shelf, and you do—admit it, your Father moves closer to you. He is calling you and if you listen, for the clicking to stop long enough to let go, there you will find Him.

Once you know He is there, you know He is a forever love. A love that is unconditional and everything He brings to you or allows is for your good. He doesn’t let things to harm, and He is always sending you His Lava Lamp of light to surround you. It may be blue, it may be pink, it may be green, but it is just for you.

Give thanks for the time of gathering close to those we love and care about, either in physical presence, phone, Skype, chats or in thought. I propose we all take a minute, an hour, or every minute, depending on where you are, and go to the light, the truth and thank Him. He is waiting, and He's always there.

His yoke is easy, His burden is light, and He loves you. So how about sending up praise for the guy upstairs? If you go through a lava lamp on the way it’s just Him, the Holy Spirit bringing you into the Godhead, so say hello to Jesus, know it’s because of His sacrifice you woke up today and why there is Thanksgiving. Let us praise Him with our actions, with our breath, with our life. It is just a click between here and there; it's how we spend the time in between that's important.

May you be blessed and have a Happy day and be thankful ~ but please take a moment to be and praise Him.

      Another beautiful hub. Sometimes we get caught up in life and forget to be thankful for the small things in life. Yes, the Lord is truly a guiding light. The bible says His word is a lamp to our feet.

      Happy Thanksgiving my dear Stages. It is just a click between here and eternity. It really matters what we do before we get there. All glory and honor belong to the one who purchased our salvation.

      Jesus is the rock and He is the peace and the JOY of my life. How I thank Him for His great and mighty works in my life and in those I love.

      Beautiful thanksgiving hub my friend - God bless you and all of those you love as you gather together tomorrow in Thanksgiving!

      Love YOU!

      Dear Stages,

      Thanks' for such a reflective reminder.

      I think Thanksgiving is that moment when we realize that without HIM, we are not... nor could we be... anything... at all.

      Blessings
