Dear beloved…..here we are – one week into the New Calendar Year and nothing but continued chaos.  The year 2021 appears to be just a 2020 Part 2….

So how do we go forward from here? Are we that believe in the greatness of our country, who stand for equality, freedom of religion, speech and all other God-given rights on the ‘wrong side of the law’ now? May it never be so!

GOOD MORNING FUTURE!

It truly is time for a GREAT RESET! But let’s remember who actually is putting his finger on that BIG RED BUTTON! It is the Great “I AM”no matter what it looks like in the here and now.…it truly is only Him. SO…. as I’ve always maintained, ‘it’s all in your perspective’.   Let’s change our perspective!

We can all admit, ‘the times they are a-changing’ – it’s a given. Time to gear up, pray up, and look forward! Have you stopped long enough to consider that there may be some AWESOME and MIGHTY new experiences just arising on the horizon? It’s time to view our cups as half full instead of half empty and be excited at the changes that are being birthed into existence! What are those new and exciting changes that are offering us promise? Consider if you will what might be possible:

  • NEW ATTITUDES OF HOPE INSTEAD OF DESPAIR
  • NEW RESPECT & TOLERANCE  IF WE ALLOW OURSELVES TO ‘SEE’ AND ‘HEAR’
  • A CHANCE TO RECONNECT TO THE VALUES AND MORALS OF OUR FOUNDING FATHERS
  • REAL CHANCE TO RECONNECT WITH RIGHTEOUSNESS OF OUR HEAVENLY FATHER
  • RENEWAL OF REGENERATION FROM THE INSIDE OUT

While the above are just some thoughts that are slowly rising to the surface of my battle-weary psyche, my friend Bill Bullock lays it out even more elequently:

CHOOSE A CENTER OF GRAVITY FOR YOUR THOUGHT LIFE THAT ACTUALLY EMPOWERS YOU TO LOVE, RESPECT, AND NURTURE OTHERS INSTEAD OF JUDGE, BE OFFENDED BY, HATE, CONDEMN AND/OR MOCK THEM by Bill Bullock

Your mind is always searching for a center of gravity – a default focus of thought, self-talk, motivation, aspiration, mood, attitude, conversation, and behavior.

Some choose for their personal center of gravity a political or ideological identification and ideology. For others it is an ethnic identification and ideology. For still others it is a socio-economic class identification and ideology. Some constantly revert to thinking about romance and/or sex; others fixate on morality. Some choose to direct their thoughts to making money and acquiring and protecting possessions; others on how the money and possessions of others should be expended or reallocated in a way more pleasing to whatever ideation they foolishly think of as their ‘truth’. Some fixate on physical appearance; others on what they like to think of as ‘health’ and/or ‘wellness’. Some choose to make their favorite alcoholic beverage, their drug of choice, or the pharmaceutical drug they need or think they need their center of gravity. Some focus on some abstract idea of ‘social justice’, which usually just means inflicting rage and vengeance on those who they judge as a threat to their imaginary ‘social justice’ model.

The only thought-life center of gravity default that brings lasting joy, peace, and shalom, and provides a strong foundation for relationships with one’s fellow human beings, however, devolves from and revolves around the Creator and His Torah. Not sacramental, symbolic, ideological, or institutional religion – the Creator Himself, and the actual personal study, consideration, and applications of his Ways. When our thoughts, self-talk, aspirations, mood, attitude, motivations, conversations, and behaviors remain focused on Him – instead of any of the other things mentioned above – we actually become capable of truly great things.

So…….question is ….. how’s your RESET going?

a little help goes a long way….we’re paying it forward to help others as well!
Thank you!
