WINTER–what the reason for this season really is

The winter solstice time is no longer celebrated as it once was, with the understanding that this is a period of descent and rest, of going within our homes, within ourselves and taking in all that we have been through, all that has passed in this full year which is coming to a close… like nature and the animal kingdom around us, this time of hibernation is so necessary for our tired limbs, our burdened minds.

Our modern culture teaches avoidance at a max at this time; alcohol, lights, shopping, overworking, over spending, comfort food and consumerism.

 

And yet the natural tug to go inwards as nearly all creatures are doing is strong and the weather so bitter that people are left feeling that winter is hard, because for those of us without burning fires and big festive families, it can be lonely and isolating. Whereas in actual fact winter is kind, she points us in her quiet soft way towards our inner self, towards this annual time of peace and reflection, not afraid of the darkness (wrapped in the veil with Messiah Yeshuah) and forgiving (lifting the veil—shining), accepting and loving embracing goodbye to the past year (go unto the Father—into his presence and Glory who will forgive and forget—release your Faith and receive the forgiveness and believe it).

“Winter takes away the distractions, the buzz, and presents us with the perfect time to rest and withdraw into a womb like love, bringing fire & light to our hearth” (Renew your mind to the Word—what The Father wants you to do—run to His arms of Mercy—Boldly to His Throne where the Intercessor is for us——we are already welcome there).

.. and then, just around the corner the new year will begin again, and like a seed planted deep in the earth, we will all rise with renewed energy once again to dance in the sunlight (Messiah—Passover—spring cleaning).

 

Life is a gift J

Happy winter to you all.

Philippians 4:6-7 –

Philippians 4:6-7 – “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Be anxious for nothing. What if we really tried to live like that today??

Had a Bad Day? …..

If you have had a bad day, it is just a bad day, and you HAVE NOT failed. Failure is not the failing; it is the staying down.

When things are going well, we feel elated. When hardships come, we sink into depression. But true joy transcends the rolling waves of circumstance. Joy comes from a consistent relationship with Jesus Christ. When our lives are intertwined with his, he will help us to walk through adversity without sinking into debilitating lows and manage prosperity without moving into deceptive highs. The joy of living with Jesus Christ daily will keep us levelheaded, no matter how high or low our circumstances (from the Study Bible Commentary on John 15:11)
