Elul – Day 30

Posted by on Sep 29, 2019 | 0 comments

THE KING IS ON THE THRONE! The King of Kings has approached his throne and is about to take his seat.  The time of Elul, of preparation, has come to an end. We no longer can run out to the field and walk casually to and fro among the daises and wildflowers with our Father. We must now approach the throne room and be admitted in, bowing and bending as we go. Will we have the scepter raised as it was raised for Esther? Are we ready to don the white garments of a bride? The ledgers lay on the table close to the throne…it is almost time for the King to open them and compare our past...

Elul – Day 28

COMPASSION – WHAT IS IT? Many talk about having or not having compassion…empathy…but when it comes down to the rubber meets the road – what exactly does it mean? How do we show compassion? In the purest sense of the word, compassion is simply stepping out of your own box, removing the boundaries that you have set for yourself to keep your heart intact. You could actually switch out the word compassion…and use the word love.

COMPASSION – Do you have it? Part of the preparatory work of Elul is to examine how compassionate we are in the things we do, say and act upon.

But to be refreshed, to be renewed, to be overwhelmed with his compassion we must reach up from where we are in this world into the next to bring it into our lives. The secret of Ani l’dodi, “I am for my beloved” is all about taking initiative. I must first show that...

A BROKEN HEART – How to heal   One can not go through the journey of life without making mistakes … sometimes pretty big mistakes! Our lives and those around us break, and even life itself can bend us so far that we don’t know how to straighten up again. I’ve often said, we are broke people living in a broke world…we’re all broke. But there is a remedy for this condition! I’m sure you’ve heard it said, ‘when given lemons in life, make lemonade’. It’s really true my friend, make lemonade! You have two choices when given lemons...

Elul – Day 15

TAKE IT OFF! OK got your attention! Today we must ‘face’ ourselves. How do we do that and what does that exactly mean? Well, think about it – each of us wear different faces, depending on the circumstance or the situation we find ourselves in. It is, for lack of a better word, survival. It is how we get through the day. Sigh. The Hebrew word for face is panim and it comes from the same root as pnim which means ‘interior’.  Interior. The inside – of you and of me. As with any Hebrew word, the Holy One named each and every part of His creation for their...
