Hi Arising Friends!

 

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving and allowed yourself to eat until you were stuffed!

 

I totally enjoyed the food, family and fellowship.

 

After everyone was gone I crawled in my chair with my journal for a little time with Papa. Every day that I wait on him he gives me a gift. It usually comes in the form of a picture and that day was a baby bird with it's mouth open wide ready to be fed.

 

My First thought was that's apropo for Thanksgiving day when we tend to stuff ourselves with great food.

 

When I read about baby birds, it said they are Eager to be fed and they don't question what their parent is feeding them, they just take it all in. They eat until they are stuffed!

 

They raise their little faces up with mouth wide open...Hungry, Expectant and Excited for what they're about to receive.

 

Such a beautiful image of how we should be with the Lord each morning. Hungry, Expectant and Excited for all he has for us!

 

A baby birds gaping mouth actually stimulates the parent to feed it.

 

What if we took that posture each morning with our father God? Sat with our face to heaven and said feed me!

 

Grab your journal and ask Him, what do you want to feed me today?

 

It may be a passage of scripture, it might be the lyrics of a song that will speak to you. He may just want to feed you words of love and encouragement. Take some time to listen and write down what he gives you.

 

Respond and ask questions if you have any.

 

I always like to end with the question, is there anything else you want to share with me?

 

Share your meal with us below.

 

Blessings!

Sandi

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Good Morning my Arising Friends!

 

Every morning I start my day with Him and my Journal. The other day as I was asking Him for my daily gift, I saw cut fire logs being unloaded from a wooden cart and randomly dropped along a dirt road that was running through a sparse forest.

 

I instantly asked "What does this mean Papa?" "It feels like Hansel and Gretel"... follow the crumbs. So...in true Sandi style, I went to google and it was a wealth of information. Although this was a picture in my mind and not a dream, I always look up the biblical meaning of the image in dreams.

 

I learned that wood is very significant and rarely shows up in dreams. Think about the biblical references for wood. Jesus was a carpenter. His livelihood came from creating with wood and he died on wood. Then we have the significance of the cross. There's a lot there!

 

Wood is considered to be the most valuable resource in the world.

 

But for me it was logs. A Log represents a meaningful or significant aspect of yourself - A talent or creativity.

 

In a dream, it means revelation. It may be information we don't understand at this point but it's important to pay attention to it and remember it.

 

Walking through a forest can mean that you are holding on to something lost. THIS IS ME! I have been holding on to this ministry for 15 years now feeling it was lost. My heart wouldn't let go of my dream and what I believe to be unlike any other experience you will have hearing Him.

 

That walk in the forest can mean that you are where you wanted to be in life. Your life carved out precisely the way you wanted it. That things are going as planned with little or nothing blocking you. The ability to carve out things desired.

 

Again, I believe this was right on for me. I'm right where I'm supposed to be and this is my time to share my gift with you!

 

So my creative talent, my gift to you is Self Discovery Journaling. A way to hear God's voice for revelation about who you are, where he's taking you and what he has for you to accomplish on this earth.

 

This is YOUR time to pick up your log along the path. YOUR meaningful or significant aspect of yourself - Your talent or creativity! What will you DO with it?

 

Are you confident in what He has created you to do and who he created you to be?

Have you heard his direction for this season of your life?

Are you ready to run with it? Are you looking for those who will run alongside you?

 

Take a minute to write to him all that is in your heart. Your dreams, current or lost. Your passions. Your concerns or heart aches. Use your non-dominant hand to let him respond and give you hope for your future. A future filled with joy and excitement for all that you will do and accomplish together!

 

I would LOVE to help you along your path in 2020!

Wow! What a surprise He had for me after I shared about His Love and how He would do Anything for us in my What Would You Do post.

 

Have you ever been so hurt by someone that it's taken years to let Him heal the wound? Maybe like me you thought that you had let it go and moved on. Then surprise!

 

This happened to me recently when out of the blue I got a call from someone I had been hurt by. I instantly felt sick to my stomach when I saw her name on my voicemail.

 

But He had a gift for me! The gift of healing of a very old wound. I had been wearing this Battle Badge like one of those t-shirts that says "I survived..."

 

As I listened to why she called I was surprised to find out that she didn't even know I had been hurt. After years, someone had told her and she called to see how she could make it right. She gave me a chance to share my side of the story and apologized.

 

I literally felt like a heaviness had been lifted off me. I can't even describe the lightness I felt. He wanted to give me back this gift of relationship and lift this heaveyness I had gotten so use to carrying that I didn't even know was weighing me down.

 

He would do anything for me his precious daughter.

 

I got out my journal to write about it and he showed me a picture of the woman who had been praying for this restored relationship. She was praying at the River. We were on our knees with our gold panning pans. She dipped hers in and I saw a ruby in the midst of stones and pieces of gold. Then I saw a topaz.

 

I dipped mine in and saw an emerald amongst the stones. If you know me, you know I love to Google the meaning of things so of course, I looked up these precious stones!

 

I found out that Emerald represents healing & fertility. The cool blue that shows up in an emerald symbolizes a steadfast bond. It's a rare stone. Stones of the bible says Green = Growth, fresh, flourishing, prosperity. Emerald opens & nurtures the Heart, provides healing to all levels bringing freshness and vitality to the Spirit. A stone of inspiration and infinite patience it embodies unity, compassion and unconditional love.

 

WOW WOW WOW! Look at all he said in one small picture.

 

Not only was there healing but I believe he was showing me that there would be a growth in my ministry out of this. That he had placed a connection there that was rare. And the growth would be something new, that would flourish financially. This opening and nurturing of my heart would be powerfully healing and bring a fresh new excitement in my Spirit.

 

I get to be like that Emerald stone with infinite patients to bring inspiration, unity, compassion and unconditional LOVE!

 

So I wanted to start that by sharing this story and encourage you to look deeper. What is He showing you today? What Battle Badges have you been wearing that He wants to remove the weight of and add some beautiful stones to?

 

Ask Him to identify a wound he wants to heal. Write down everything that comes to your mind when he reminds you of this.

 

Then ask him to give you a picture or the name of the gemstone he wants to give you to replace the Battle Badge. Don't forget to look up the meanings! : )

 

Write it down and ask him if he has any additional insight for you. He loves to have conversations with us. Give him time!

 

Arise and Be Blessed!

Sandi
