Don’t be Distracted – Enjoy the Journey

 

Hey

What a grand journey I’m on, and I know you are having an adventure too. This morning while Paul and I were praying and talking, and yes, drinking coffee (duh) we started talking about all the negativity and judgments that are showing up all over the body of Christ. We are pretty grieved about this, as I’m sure many of you are.

I believe what we need to realize is, this is a spirit that is infiltrating the prevailing atmosphere and many are falling into its deception. Every time we jump in and voice our opinions or even defend our own experiences we are fueling this thing, we are giving it more power to deceive.

The division between us and them mentality and outright attacks really need to stop. When we enter into these things we have chosen to be offended and feel we have to justify our stance when we really don’t!

For me, the easiest thing to do is keep walking (scrolling) and like Bill Johnson has said many times, have the attitude of, “I don’t have a dog in this fight!” That is how you keep walking. You realize that your stand and your belief are your own. No one else has had your adventure with God – no one! Why should we even try to defend something like that?

Maybe we could even pray for that spirit that is so prevalent in this to fall. (Maybe) Or we could pray that the person who is “attacking” could have an encounter with Jesus and quit persecuting His kids. I don’t know, maybe.

Walking and praying – it’s what I will be doing today as I continue on this grand adventure that is mine.

Enjoy your adventure, feed your adventure.

I am a baker and a blogger living in Nashville, Tennessee. I worked several years as a healing technician in the Healing Room ministries where miracles happened every week. I blog about those experiences and conversations I’ve had with God while going about daily life. I also blog and am passionate about food and using it as a means to get people to gather back around the table and have real face to face conversations again. I am a wife, a mother, a sister, a friend, a chef, a soapbox performer, an encourager and a lover of Jesus. My biggest desire is to see people free to know who they really are and be able to walk in that identity.

  1. I love this so much! I love the takeaway of praying, too – so that above all we can live and love in peace with one another, that differing opinions or perspectives aren’t a threat to us because we are rooted and grounded in Father’s identity. Xoxoxo

  2. I agree, Ginny. Thank you so much for this post.

    What I am going to share is more for othwrs as I know that you, Paul and I have discussed these thing already. 🙂

    That spirit you guys are discerning has place within the body because we give it foothold. The foothold is rooted in our belief system.

    The Body of Christ was meant to come out of the institutional system in order to accept her true value in Christ as holy and blameless (Col 1:21, 2 Cor 5:21, Eph 1:6)

    We have not truly discerned the purpose of this wilderness season by in large due to the immense amount of woundings we all suffered. It take a great courage to heal.

    We truly need to embrace or self worth comes only from His gift of righteousness.

    Until we begin to align our thinking and heal, this spirit will continue to use our fractured hearts to continue to fracture the Bost of Christ.

    I too have been very grieved the last several years as I see this manifesting more and more brazenly as our love grows cold.

    We need to heal.

    All our love here in NY.
