We all have a PULSE ~
We all have a pulse
We all have a PULSE
Are you trying to figure something out
Are you trying to get answers to questions
Are you a person and not a piece of furniture
Then you have one
It means your alive
It makes you real
Your heart beats as a reminder
In the center of this amazing reality lies the ingredient of choice
It can be revolutionary
God allows it
We can use our will for selfless non-manipulative pure works for the greater good
But, if our will is of trickery or ill thought self-serving for deceit or revenge
It can be destructive and devastating
At times, it's be balancing act,
On a tightrope of which way we may slip in response to that will
The Holy Spirit reveals knowledge, are we listening?
Imagine the possibilities with the gift of the Spirit
The Holiest Spirit and lighted glow of our Lord guiding us through our stages
Remember stage are always changing
Different scenes different lighting
Happy stages and sad stages
Clear stages and confusing stages
Right stages and wrong stages
Most importantly is that our stages are shared
We are all at this stage of life just different settings
We all have good roles and bad roles
We all need to experience life and understand just when we figure things out -
New scene ~ and ACTION!
Sometimes you get to play the good guy
Sometimes you get to play the bad guy
Sometimes you get to be the teacher
Sometimes you get to be the student
Sometimes you get to be the question
Sometimes you get to be the answer
Sometimes you get to understand
Sometimes you don’t
One day, if we just have Faith and Believe
We get to meet the Director
And He wrote the SCRIPT
He is, was, and will be our everything
No Matter What!
No matter what trust the one who gives the pulse
We will have tough times, hard times, broken times, and not fun times. We will have, happy, memorable and euphoric times of great joy. People outside your windows will always try to look in and understand your experience. They want to relate to your scene or, at least, learn something from you.
A society that craves knowledge and people assume they know everything. They become shocked when not sure what to do when faced with a similar event. To assume if we can ignore and understand things we could control our life is laughable as the flesh lies.
We to shelter ourselves from the beating pulse of life when slows too much or speeds up too fast.Let's be honest we want normal. But what is normal? What if our idea isn’t normal, and it changes, as it will? What if normal is to no longer eat, or drive or use spoken the language? We are so used to our normal or are we lost. We even try to protect it. Because admit it we love whatever we consider as normal.
But, you can rely on what is constant the one who gave us our PULSE!Life has a pulse a rushing of blood pumping through our veins. We hope to have peace both inside and out of our physical self. Our pulse of life gets too fast sometimes and sometimes it gets too slow. Sometimes we want a break, more of the euphoria, we want to breathe. We wish for life to stay still and quiet when it's as near perfect as we can imagine.
The pulse is always present we notice it when we exercise, sometimes we can even hear it. what if the pulse it stopping? When that happens it doesn’t matter anymore because what remains is that which gave us our pulse, to begin with, If we know what is constant.God is constant, He is everything, no matter what others believe, or how lost you may be in your own normal.
NO MATTER WHAT! Talk to God, He will guide you. If we are open to Him and His whispers. God decides how our pulse will be in response to the life He has provided and He decides how others will react to it. Our Father will decide when you are to be strong and when you are to show weakness. His strength gives you, faith, love and even humor in difficult times.
Understand stuff will come against you but you are never alone with your stuff. How we field the curve balls is so important and we will have our moments, but in these moments try to remember His grace. Act according to the grace that God gives to you and things will be okay. Let go of figuring out and trust who gave you the pulse. The pulse of His Spirit is grace and mercy loving one another in the highs and lows. Come alongside one another while not necessarily in agreement, but rather in unconditional love no matter what.
God gives grace so share it
One person is not more important to God than you as we are all made in His image. Others will judge and assume and decide how you should be, react, or even feel. They believe they recognize a better way for you to be. They think they can do your role better. Try not to worry about that. There is a reason He did not cast them in your role even when they are in your scene. They are important and so are their feelings because they too are important to God. Nonetheless, we are not part of every role.
God gave you the lead for this one and He will direct you. Here is the tough part, there will be times you play the Villain and other times you play the good guy. No part is less important to the growth He has designed for you. Don’t improvise too much in the scenes His direction is perfect.
The outcome is a happy ending even when we can't see it when we are in the show. Life is so temporal and therefore not surprising we struggle with letting go to His Spirit. Control is a tricky thing when we have it we may lose it. To have too much control can empower us to a lofty state and then we spiral downward. The desire to control is not healthy unless releasing it to a power greater than self, a power that will reign in its purpose.
Denying self, yet reacting with self-control is a humble use of control. Realize you’re never in control when it consumes you, and better able to have control when guided to humble refrain, of a power not of self. The pulse in your veins ignites when released to the power of the one who gives us that pulse.
God loves you no matter what, He gave you your pulse, be sure to share the enthusiasm of all you can do with this life when counting on the God who gave us our life pulse.
Ordinary people can be extrordinary
