Parallelism

I welcomed her into my home and she made herself comfortable, resting her back on my festive Christmas pillows.

I know she saw You.  

Your name.  

Your presence.  

You, celebrated boldly within these walls...

...because that is my primary focus during precious Advent.  You...  


I tried to make her feel welcome, with the water, the smiles, the thankfulness for her time....

...but she must have felt threatened.  

She grilled me hard for at least 20 minutes with unquestionable questions, inappropriate and accusing; in a fine passive-aggressive manner.  

And in the shock of those moments, I felt my enlarged heart swell with pain.  

I have cried out to You these past two weeks, and You have comforted my hurt down.  In retrospect You have revealed my choice clearly.  I do not walk a gray line.  My words that day marked the defined black line I wobble upon.

Every choice has a consequence.

And then the phone call yesterday.  Just a few last details to complete her task.  Just a few more questions to be asked.  And my overly enlarged heart grew more as her questions rolled out.  The pain almost unbearable in the lashing.

Her words stung as she questioned the choices I have for 14 years brought humbly before You.  She belittled my existence, giving the enemy a target to pierce once again. 

And I am on my knees praying the pain of my swollen heart is due to increased pooling of blood, and not the cold start of a hardened heart.

I open Your Word randomly to p. 876.  I see stains on Your words this morning.  Stains of splashed coffee.  Stains of bleeding ink. A wrinkled, weakened page from tears that have spilled.  Through blurred vision I read in the commentary:

"The first line makes a statement that the second line sharpens or heightens."

And Lord, I know it isn't Your inspired Word.  Just a note from the commentator giving me direction in reading the book of Psalms more effectively.  But this a.m., these words pop.


"A fuller appreciation of the eloquence of the Psalms can be gained by understanding the basics of Hebrew poetry...     
....Although Hebrew poetry contains some rhythm, it primarily makes use of repetition and recapitulation.  One line of a verse is followed by another that gives a variation of the same idea."

Parallelism.

Saying I believe is just the first part; the first statement I make.  It does not keep me balanced on Your black line.  The second part of my belief is demonstrated in how I live, how I trust, how I act, how I hope.  All of this sharpens or heightens the point.  

Please Lord, may my life point to You.  Not just my words.  Not just my face.  

My whole life.

Even when my choices threaten my family.

She does not understand my choice, but Lord she is Yours too.  I pray she witnesses synonymous, climactic, and emblematic parallelism within me.  I pray Your light will lead her to Your glorious Word and she can read it for herself.

I know it is not my job to lead her to You, but I humbly thank You for the gift You have graced me with in leading these precious little ones.  I do not comprehend Your plan in all this accusation and hurt.  Please give me sensitivity.  Maybe the sight of me-still standing firm, even with trembling knees, is part of Your precious plan for her. 

"...Not only do the psalmists use this poetic technique, but the authors of proverbs use it as well.  The second line of a proverb usually reinforces the meaning of the first line.  This reinforcement of the thought is not mere tautology, but the graceful artistry of a poet...

...The first line makes a statement that the second line sharpens or heightens."

And Lord, thank You for the choice of the gray or black line.  I pray my presence on Your black line is marked with graceful artistry.  

You are holding my heart tight.  Please keep it from hardening.  Please catch all the bleeding drops and use them for Your glory.


I love You.

Hope in the treading...

I am running broken miles right now. Trying to stay sane in the midst of children in disarray and change.

graffiti art warehouse district of Denver

He opened His Word right to Deuteronomy 33 for me.  Sometimes a girl needs a healthy reminder.

"There is no one like the God of Jeshurun,
Who rides the heavens to help you,
And in His excellency on the clouds.
The eternal God is your refuge,
And underneath are the everlasting arms;
He will thrust out the enemy from before you,
And will say 'Destroy!'
Then Israel shall dwell in safety,
The foundation of Jacob alone,
In a land of grain and new wine;
His heavens shall also drop dew.
Happy are you, O Israel!
Who is like you, a people saved by the LORD,
the shield of your help
And the sword of your majesty!
Your enemies shall submit to you,
And you shall tread down their high places."
Deuteronomy 33:26-29

If you feel overwhelmed in the chaos of treading down these high places, as I do, don't forget who you are.

You are carried in everlasting arms that are strategically placed underneath you. 

You stand apart.  You are saved. 

He is your shield.

Camel stage...

"I appeal to you therefore, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.  Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God - what is good and acceptable and perfect."
Romans 12:1-2
 
And this momma appeals to you too. 
 
Soak in every single word in His Word.  Let it transform your heart and your mind.  Let it sink inside you so deep that in times of great sacrifice and tireless service, you are constantly renewed and refreshed at the Holy Spirit's prompting of the Word buried deep within your heart.
 
Because, as my dear Papa shared with me, we are either hummingbirds or camels.  A hummingbird lingers long, soaking in every word, taking his time.  A camel, drinks in the water deep knowing times of drought are near. 
 
I much prefer the hummingbird stage, but I am so very thankful for the deep drinks I have previously taken that are sustaining this very tired momma right now. 
 
"A person cannot recieve even one thing unless it is given him from heaven."
John 3:27
 
 
 
 
 
Yes, all these beautiful, time-consuming gifts are from heaven above. 
 
His Word is perfect. 
 
May you be filled deeply this day.  :)

Blooming Orchid

That orchid in my kitchen window finally bloomed again after a year of nothing.  It bloomed right on my anniversary. 

The Warrior Daddy smiled.  He didn't utter a word.  I understood his smile. 

Some things are so worth waiting for. 

Some things I wait for, with lingering, spread-thin hope. 


That orchid is a chore. 

That orchid is temperamental. 

That orchid is hard for me to love at times.

So many moments over the past year I've wanted to give up.  A person can handle small seasons with no flowers, but long seasons make this girl start to lose hope, setting my mind into endless query.

That orchid bloomed a second gift right on Hope's birthday.  It shared it's fifth on my Joy's gotcha day.  I lost count when a bloom blossomed right on my birthday.

Sisters, God is that good! 

His endless gifts are so personal, and full of His tender love. 

That orchid is a gift to this very tired girl, blessed with another very sick child.  And I know it is a grand gesture of His love and direction for my mind and heart.

 


What if I dared to love with endless devotion, believing with my whole heart that the manipulation, lies, steals, cheats will someday stop?

What if I dared to surrender my whole heart to my precious ones, believing someday they will truly wrap their little arms around it and stop the piercing?

What if I dared to truly reach out and love a birthmom whose choices have damaged my beloved children and changed our reality forever?

What if I give my heart away to a little needy soul who may or may not get to stay forever?

What if I truly trusted in His story, stopped blaming the issues, laid aside my own expectations, and jumped right into the worship of serving these precious ones?

God is bringing me to a crisis of belief, and He is changing this girl forever.

"Then the King will say to those on his right,
'Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.  For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.
I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.'  Then the righteous will answer him, saying,
'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink?  And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you?  And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?'  And the King will answer them, 'Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.'"
Matthew 25:34-40
 


He promises the flowers will bloom.

Do not tremble or be dismayed,
for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go."

Psalm 19:1-4a

 
 
 

 "The heavens declare the glory of God,
and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
Day to day pours out speech,
and night to night reveals knowledge.
There is no speech, nor are there words,
whose voice is not heard.
Their voice goes out through all the earth,
and their words to the end of the world."
Psalm 19:1-4a

September 3rds Showers of Blessing

Ezekiel 34 has mesmorized my thoughts for weeks.

"I will make with them a covenant of peace and banish wild beasts from the land, so that they may dwell securely in the wilderness and sleep in the woods.  And I will make them and the places all around my hill a blessing, and I will send down the showers in their season; they shall be showers of blessing."
Ezekiel 34:25-26
 
 

Tonight, a late phone call delivered showers of blessing.
 
He is safe. 
 
He is here.
 
I stand broken on this hill, yet knowing I am safe in this wilderness. 
 
And so is one more.
 
Praise His holy name! 

Day 443 Prayer Request

Please pray for my child's birth family and for his protection.
