John Chapter 20🙏

May 4, 2023

Continued from It’s About to Get Real Personal 💖

One sits amongst the thorns weeping

Vulnerable in her grief…Jesus comes in peace.

Another hides locked away

Grieving. Anxious and afraid…yet Jesus still comes in peace.

Does it matter how we grieve?

Or simply that

We grieve.

The way to freedom is the same for all.

Be still.

Be transformed.

Inhale…exhale…receive…

To be continued.

  1. I dont think it matters how we grieve; if we grieve then we grieve one way or another. Jesus is the one way to freedom, equally available to all who care. it’s been a long time. hope you are doing good. I have been on and off because of some struggles in a crippling and corrupt economy

    1. How is it, my dear brother in Christ, that we as children of the most high King of Kings reduce ourselves to slaves…and slave traders?

      Go to your Father (and mine) and ask Him directly, “My Father what do You want me, your beloved son, to know about living in this crippled and corrupt economy? AND what do YOU my King what me to do?”

      How may I love ALL YOUR DIVINE creation and be a light unto the darkness?

      And then my dear Ihagh…please come back and tell us what you hear. ☺️
      Good to see you again.

  2. Dearest Nina, I hold you in my thoughts and prayers. You are a beautiful person and more importantly a child of God! We all grieve in our own ways and in our own time, grief is not something to get over, grief is more like a traveling companion that over time we begin to see with eyes of wisdom. God works all for good especially when we do not understand, we need only to trust God with our whole self. Much love 💕 🙏🏻🌸🌱🪷

  3. In peace.

    In pieces.

    That was the life of Jesus.

    Running.

    Hiding. Waiting…to be betrayed and then captured.

    The peace found in death AND THEN resurrection.

    Jesus sweat blood in the garden of Gethsemane.

    GRIEF. Alone. Anxious. Afraid. Human by all accounts.

    Can you feel the grief in and of the world?

    It was The Christ that got him through it all.

    He wasn’t alone you see; nor hidden; not running.

    Standing still. Patient. Waiting to be captured; only.

    What is grief? The world without Christ as the heart of God having love for Man here on Earth; and mindless to boot. Th

    What is grief? The world without Christ as the heart of God having love for Man here on Earth; and mindless to boot. That’s Grief mingled with remorse and human by all accounts again. Sadness follows as long as grief persists.

    How can I help?

    Let me start by asking for what I want most.

    Forgiveness.

    Christ Forgave so God Forgave.

    And so I must forgive.

    By the way, Jesus sweat blood in the Garden of Gethsemane. I have come to understand that when one suffers enough is when the mind changes.

    Sweating blood came first. He REALLY suffered quite a bit. I wonder which was worse for him? What lead up to the garden of Gethsemane, or what came after it?

    WE are the murderers given life in exchange for Jesus’ death and crucifixion. The Christ Jesus spared us the suffering of the grief by taking it on himself.

    Now. Look at the world…and how it grieves.

    What comes next without the Christ?

    We better get forgiveness down…quickly.

    Peace

    1. Jesus sweat blood.

      I’m still reeling from this…hit me hard and knocked me right over. I have to sit here for a moment and consider this…

      1. I JUST CAN’T LET THIS GO, but I will after this last entry.

        THOMAS! Did anyone miss the fact that THOMAS never asked to see Christ, Jesus’ feet?

        Jesus said (Paraphrase) that we would do all that he did and more (hands).
        And…the wound in Jesus’ (The Christ) side was…you know…created to make sure he was dead…and to end his suffering should he not be dead (spear of Destiney or compassion respectively …either of these would be true by MAN’S STANDARD OF CARE (these days).

        Ah…But THOMAS didn’t ask to see Jesus (The Christ) feet (where he walked…HIS WALK).

        See how…and what Christianity evolved from?

        We missed the third element of the Trinity.

        Just saying.

        PLANTER’S WOUNDS (Planter is to feet as palmer is to hands).

        For give it. Change course. Correct it. We should all be limping pretty soon. OY! OW…OW OW OW!

      2. Yes….let’s keep walking together…please don’t let this be your last entry…tell me more. I love a man whom I call my friend and brother. He has a limp…I noticed just this morning it was a little worse today…I love him even more.

  5. What are the signs of the times? And why is the Earth grieving? Why are there so many TV commercials offering palliative medications for Auto-immune disorders; medications that actually shut the immune system off so our symptoms are hidden behind happy tennis playing/swimming/horseback riding people as shown on the non-reality box?

    Medicating grief…or would-be grief if we actually truly understood health, wellness and…living together in biding. We have to medicate to do that now. Humans have gotten so hateful.

    I feel the Earth Grieving.

    Jesus (As The Christ) showed us this “Hatefulness” in man. He was not the prince of peace I’m afraid. Princes have authority by will of Their Father, The King. They are esteemed. We model after them for favor.

    And we are modeling after Jesus…straight to his crucifixion; NOT HIS LIFE.

    The sign of the Time: GRIEF. And there is good reason for it.

    If only…we had looked to The Christ’s life as lived in Jesus as he was living and loved him for it…and modeled it.

    I see the Cross set up for humanity. It doesn’t look a bit peaceful to me at all. I guess we’re gonna die for Christ this time…so we know what it was like. It really wasn’t meant to be like that. Imagine…if Jesus had not been Crucified. WE’d All Be Christ (Enter our Name HERE).

    Now, PLEASE FORGIVE ME. I’M UPSET. I’M ANGRY. I ACT OUT INAPPROPRIATELY FOR REASONS I THINK ARE GOOD. Do you see my grief?

    I forgive you if you don’t…though it still pisses me off. Damn it. Now I have to forgive that, too…OF MY SELF…SO CHRIST WILL FORGIVE ME, AND SO GOD FORGIVES ME. I have GOT to change my ways somehow before the real suffering begins; and so must we all.

    And now…let’s laugh…because it’s really funny to be so ridiculous as humans. I have heard that laughter is the best medicine.

    Peace out…or in 😇

    1. Do you remember when we first connected here? I do. I was quite sure God sent you—an angel. By the grace of angels…you saw right through my own inappropriate actions…and you never judged me.

      Trust fall…
      …and maybe we both fell…(cause silly me I gave you no warning)
      …laughing.

      There’s more to write. Give me time to get up. But right now I just want to stay a little while longer in the garden with Jesus…sweating together. Will you stay with us?

      You know what a blessing it is to see wolf tracks.

      Sitting in silence
      God’s perfect peace is present.
      Being still; I know.

  6. The abiding with The Christ in Jesus. Imagine it. Baring that. Of the words in a book describing it. EASY!

    I HAVE FLED SO OFTEN; running. Hiding. CAPTURED. Crucified for it. They say running is a sign of guilt.

    Maybe I was just running to find that still small voice ALONE in the vacuum; and peace.

    In pieces; I fall apart…desperate for peace.

    I hope humanity can forgive itself fully one day, and we wake up to a new humanity. Courage is required for abiding. I’d rather face what’s coming with loved ones than alone…

    …Loving loved ones IN THE CHRIST.

    And I do remember, Nina. We have had a shared journey; walking Christ’s planter wounds staunched only in realizing we really aren’t alone in this.

    Waking up is hard. Traumatizing really. And heaven on Earth is a vision before it is real. And what’s real now…

    Keep holding out for the vision of Heaven on Earth.

    For me…Forgiveness is the first step for staunching the planters wounds I limp along with.

    Limping is still walking by the way.😇
