Horrified…Relieved…and finally Rejoicing!

I saw this image, and I burst into tears.  It was almost like PTSD…my heart began to race, and I had a hard time breathing.  From my earliest memories forces outside me had been putting that suffocating corset over my heart, my soul…over me!

Family…acquaintances…institutions…paradigms.

Pulling it tight!

And pulling it tighter.

And tighter.

I had to force myself to breathe, and beg Lady Grace to touch me and hold my heart.  I quoted my older brother David son of Jesse:

“Be still oh my soul, and know that He is God!”

Bestillbestillbestill bestill bestill bestill be still be still be still

Be.

Still.

He is God.

…and then it happened, and I realized that my life is finally going the other way…Lady Grace on one tie, and Jesus on the other, gently loosening those tangled ties…taking out the intricate knots placed by fear and death…

Thank you so much, for this woman caught in adultery (we all are she), this woman at the well, this woman hemorrhaging internally since birth, this woman bent over at the waist since awakening…

…is now at Their feet, being loosed!  Being untied!  Being Set FREE.

Won’t you join me, letting go of whatever it is this broken place forced onto your heart at birth?

After all, my walk thru transition is amazingly parallel to my walk transitioning from the realm of death to the realm of life!

Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.

Thank you, Dearest God!  And Blessings and Grace and Peace to you all this morning.

Love, Charissa
