"Whatever is built by the flesh will have to be maintained by the flesh. Whatever is built by the Spirit will be maintained by the Spirit." We often ask the Lord to remove anything that is not of Him. This is what that process looks like. Imagine that every item you have, everyone you know and everything you remember is stripped away. What will remain? What will grow up once again even if it is removed, without you even trying? That is the stuff that is maintained by the Lord. May everything that we are be built up in the Lord. Anything that we stress over trying to protect and keep... will not the Lord protect and keep all that is important to Him and to us?

There is something intoxicating 
about his eyes,
about his smile,
about the way He wiggles his ears, flares his nostrils
and raises his eyebrows.

There is something intoxicating 
about the way He grabs me
and holds me
and puts me to His chest.

There is something intoxicating
about His heartbeat,
the way it throbs
after beat
after beat.
It is beating
with passion,
with excitement,
with satisfaction.

For it is me
who is intoxicating
to Him.

When love stops being an idea, but permeates all of our being...

How do you convince an elephant that he is not a rabbit? By sending another elephant to live with him.

Form without Spirit is useless. Spirit when allowed to mature will always take Form, one that is fluid and living. Spirit cannot be attained, it can only be received. It comes form a posture of rest, of trust, of letting go.

A man heard that a very important King had come to town and that He loved to visit people's homes. So he invited Him to have dinner at his house. His house was a big mess but before he had time to clean it up, the King arrived.

"Sorry," he apologized to the King, "my place is not fit for your visit!"

The King laughed and said, "It's ok, I'm not here to see your house but I'm here to see you!"

We sometimes forget that God is not interested in what we have accomplished or believed in our own effort but He only wants to enjoy time with us and to create memories together. For this reason, He is not content with just talking to us but He wants to live inside of us. And when He does, everything contrary to Him (sickness, fear) automatically leaves. We are filling and filling, overflowing with everything that He is: rest, peace, joy, hope, love.

A bird set free cannot be caged again; it may return to its cage but its still a free bird in a cage whose lock is forever broken.
