"sense the urgency of this moment awaiting you"

“My response is to get down on my knees before the Father, this magnificent Father who parcels out all heaven and earth. I ask him to strengthen you by his Spirit—not a brute strength but a glorious inner strength—that Christ will live in you as you open the door and invite him in. And I ask him that with both feet planted firmly on love, you’ll be able to take in with all followers of Jesus the extravagant dimensions of Christ’s love. Reach out and experience the breadth! Test its length! Plumb the depths! Rise to the heights! Live full lives, full in the fullness of God.  God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us.” 
Ephesians 3:14-20 (The Message)

Oh Golly! This, THIS, is what I'm talking about! Open your hearts to be strengthened and entrust your dreams to Him, resting in the knowledge that He CAN do anything.

Be deeply rooted in this: there is nothing you can do to make God love you any less.

He sent His son to die, He died, so that you could be His child, you could be His brother or sister, you are cherished and loved, He's not sending out commands and instructions, He is not our commander, He is our loving Father.  Let His Spirit into the corners of your heart, even the deepest darkest ones.  Give Him the key to each and every door, and know that His timing is always perfect.

Kneel before God, bend down and know that He is I Am, and He is your Father, and you are His child, and He loves you, and He calls you.

He calls you to action, so be ready to act.

His will for your life is that you follow His lead, He will be the lamp to your feet, so trust Him.

He will be with you, every step of the way.

So be BRAVE, and get up and walk! Get out there and run, get out there and do!

"- I pray as you launch into 2013, that you sense the urgency of this moment awaiting you.

- I pray you have the courage to rise above the limitations and expectations imposed upon you by yourself or others.

- I pray you will write a beautiful story with your one life, and that you will be brave enough to live this year with a beautiful authenticity and daring vulnerability that will take your breath away!

Heaven’s smile is upon you and God’s promise is over you. He has crowned this year with His favour and goodness, so embrace it bravely and engage every moment as it waits for you. Let us lean into it: like a roller coaster ride, it’s so much more fun when we lean into it and let the momentum carry us off to great and daring adventures!" - SheLoves by Helen Burns

Live with me in this moment Now, see the urgency with me and find courage placed in you by the Spirit.

This, what Helen is saying, that's what I wanted to say...I just didn't know how to put it into words.
