Roll Call

Daily

The Most High GOD calls us

out of her ~ the Babylonian/world ~ system

which includes a lot more than meets

the natural

‘I’

 

The methods vary.

 

Once i received the inclination

to reduce then end

my secular music intake

moving on His word too slowly

still turning

to the local urban contemporary station

ready to switch

should its content & decency not mix

 

Before long

every turn on

hours or days apart

featured the same dead artist

 

There was one exception

A change of station presented

an unchanging God

through opening chords

to “Walk Like An Egyptian”

 

My heart heard Him clearly

‘Don’t undo My deliverance

Leave that alone!

Amen…’

 

We are all given a role

maybe two & so forth

according to His purpose

 

This morning

i am inspired to create or find & modify

a cinnamon-raisin roll recipe

to prepare with Love

yet no leaven

The Process

So…

i decided to enjoy a smoothie in the midst of some study today. There’s a fruit of The Holy Spirit parallel i didn’t even pick up on until just now.

Still, i appreciate the ways God shows up in whatever we set our hands to if our hearts and minds have already begun to follow His lead.

Some of the kitchen produce was screaming on its way out. i mean oxidizing into the yellows and browns of fresh air exposure, negligence or (like my emotions in worship these days) a bit mushy.

Radio was playing. Sun was shining. Family was good. i was grateful for the simple pleasure of private time with Him as sometimes there’s no music, all dark clouds and busyness among a public that doesn’t seem at all moved by His Love.

Out of nowhere, i started thinking about Noah; how he received a freeing Word of radical preparation from The Most High. How the people must’ve laughed and tried to ridicule or shame his arguably outlandish endeavor.

A big ol’ random boat, man? Hmm… 😒

Due to the wickedness of humankind, The Hand of God was going to wave mightily, sending almost everyone clear out of ‘Dodge’ (in that case, Mesopotamia).

Some found it prudent to use the time arguing, judging, disregarding the depth of sin coming to tide.

Ok, Abba. i see You — and the way our folly does no justice to Your glorious image. We’ve been like spoiled children or damaged fruit, not far enough from that fall.

Of what wasn’t too far past its freshness date, i selected my materials in twos: be it actual items, cups, tablespoons, old-school measurements you ‘just do’.

Though inspired beyond natural or intellectual knowing, good things came/are yet coming together. Hence…

Metanoia Mash

Note: You can choose any fruit, vegetable, herbs, spices and/or liquid components that best meet your nutritional needs. Just stick to a sensible rule of ✌

Ingredients

2 (reeeally) ripe bananas

💡 We might enjoy the same fruit yet, no, i don’t believe humans are evolved of monkeys but unique creations of God.

2 handfuls of strawberries [equivalent to about 8 oz. since 1/2 of the 16 oz. container was fighting for its life]

💡 Ever think about how strong AND fragile one that wears its seeds (life potential) on the outside must be? Stick out your tongue; not in mockery but to examine yourself. When brushed and/or we’re not fighting infection, notice the many buds; each like a strawberry seed whose life & death power is ever present.

2 c. cashew milk

💡 It’s so good (to me) and plant-based, as opposed to dairy, milks don’t pose the same curdling concern when met with acidic fruit content.

2 splashes pure coconut water

💡 The bulb emoji is a representative of electric light. This water may not compare to the Living Water that is Christ, but is a great source of heart-friendly, energy-supporting electrolytes; a little like Nature’s Gatorade.

2 sprinkles pomegranate-cherry juice

💡 The sprinkle isn’t as liberal as the splash, y’all. To say the very least, it’s for added flavor dimension and rosiness depending upon your preferred & chosen ingredients.

2 fibrous fruit with stems and a strong, seeded core (in this case the 1 Red Delicious apple and 1 D’Anjou pear)

💡 Roughage is an important part of preparing anything for (re-)building. Any reminder of the danger that detachment from the source branch or vine is crucial.

2 peeled kiwi fruit, diced

💡 Their vitamin C content, vibrant nature and tiny seeds enhance the type of eating experience i like. Differently sized pieces requiring more mindful uses of our mouths including our smiles encourages us to gamble less and consider all hemispheres of our graces more deeply.

2 oz. wheat germ

💡 Minerals and B vitamins galore serving as a reminder that some so-called germs  strengthen us, our resistance and tolerance. Reproducing and spreading this essence of wheat, not useless tares, are important to God’s Kingdom.

2 tsp. sunflower seeds

💡 Members of the animal kingdom can gnash with teeth if need be. Plants are of a finer kingdom requiring different methods to break down their (cell) walls and allow access the heart of the matter: nutrients. An acid (as is vinegar in a mild sense, citrus juice) &/or an oil that will result from the pureed seeds are somewhat like that key and help emulsify (bind, smooth) the blend.

2 tbsp. ground turmeric

💡 Studies in this root’s effectiveness against various cancers and the consistently large amounts that would be required varies. The brownish tint above will result if you include this ingredient’s bold mustard gold-like color.

1/2 tsp. Himalayan pink salt or 2 oz. chopped celery

💡 The natural sodium sources(s) assist delivery and provide or pair well with the bananas’ & wheat germ’s mineral content.

a finely sliced 2″x2″ piece of fresh, raw ginger

💡 Just enough for an immunity & energy boosting zing UNLESS you’re taking contraindicated antidepressant drugs, e.g. Wellbutrin.

*

Optional

2 tbsp. raw turbinado sugar, 2 tsp. cinnamon/sugar & 2 shakes nutmeg

💡 If you’re still inclined to a quick fix of sweetness or spice beyond what the fruit already provide, reduce graininess by combining these with the coconut water, bringing to an agitated slow boil (stir or shake) & making a simple syrup.

2 oz. chopped cucumber

💡 If the ginger is a bit too warming in nature for your constitution, cucumber’s cooling nature & high water content should assist balance.


Preparation

Having already made sure to cut out and/or wash any molded portions, combine & puree all thoroughly in a food processor for a total of about two minutes.

Check on your blend between ~10-second pulses to note any color changes, stuck ingredients, etc.; stir, adjust accordingly.

Yields about 48 oz. (six 8 oz. servings)


Process

This smoothie makes good use of the imperfect or slightly bruised produce we often waste, if so privileged to eat in the first place. On the other hand, it flavorfully encourages gentle elimination (unblocking & moving of gut, colon matter) and goes far to fortify the WHOLE body. While revenge is not applicable here, this like all live foods should be served immediately &/or chilled.

Waste not, want not.

Cheerfully give goodness of what you’re given.

Enjoy nourishment: pressed down, shaken together… .

We all learn that

at least among humans

the concept of control is not exclusive

to the apprentice or the teacher

Both must sacrifice

for the other’s gift

Knowledge, wisdom and receptive vessel

understand

Sent of a Woman

Made, better yet,

harmonized scents

long as i can remember


It’d be foolish not to know

plants and spices are

not my creation

as i, too, am created

of The Most High


A mom often teaches US girls

about cooking, makeup and perfume

the likes of which

now have a different order & priority

in some senses

sent far behind me


My last blend was a few years ago

following a moment’s break

from bedside [sic] a wounded mate

inspired rose, almond, amber


The one other ingredient

only The Lord knows

since my makeshift

handwritten label wore off


Having completed a recent assignment

otherwise

the bottle of that former favorite

succumb to God’s Hand too


Breaking point

Much of its content spilled

into a bag he’d given me

calling for clean-up before the aisle

and a new signature aroma


Just then

the oil of God flowed most essentially

with covenant peace of His branch

equipping inner lamps for His direction

fortifying the skin to better deflect the enemy


offering pure fragrance

drawing us nearer to His heart

beyond container or commerce

despite incensed Babylon


Others report opposing

odd or acquired taste

by Grace

Its top, middle & base notes Being


trust that faith grows

Hope floats

yet Love abides…

or nothing will.


Regardless

it’s all-ways The High Priest

Who best brings

all things together.

Sometimes i learn how

little i know; knack… it seems

then i look (it) up.

Wrapping Up

Thou preparest a table

Taught Wisdom to do the same

that we should cover each other with Love

lest we forget Your Name

must be exalted

before any other chief

even Michael, prince of angels

“who is like God”

not only mere wo/men

some of whom did, do or will lie

but a refuge

protection

blanket above ALL

in Whom His redeemed souls

rest & never die

Head Over Heels

Images: “True Woman” blog & linked

 

If so blessed

with the ability to walk

the above is how it usually should be

 

The head sends its messages

throughout the body below

With enough nerve & tact

they eventually arrive

for Life

 

Step by step

a way is made

Thank God

 

In case of apathy

just clean the glass

Don’t break

 

Acknowledge then look beyond

seemingly irreparable damage

 

Life’s many

come and go to Jesus

moments

 

Of true Love

inside (our hearts)

out (through babes)

 

top – bottom

attic – basement

 

ancestors – descendants

roots – branches

 

farm(ed) and he’rd

brought to table

nourishing multitudes

one mouth or none

 

from Heaven’s Word

humble before Him

well

before fashion

What Matters Most

Image via “grey matter” “mind of Christ” Google search

 

Days like today

gray, rainy ones

lead me to believe moreso

in The Most High’s reign

 

Temporary loneliness replaced

by the eternal Love of His perfect plan

Relative chill becomes reason

to grab a shawl, pray, read

feed on His Holy Word

appreciating that He all-ways covers us

 

Yes to shade in His secret place

Yes to tea leaves that heal nations

soaking in Living Water

restoring harmony to the Body

by ascent in degrees

 

No weapon, no wo/man can separate me

from Your Love

Releasing steam, receiving serenity

to go forward

despite the weather

 

In the valley

moments between

births & deaths

glories

everlastings

You are with me

 

This is what matters most

Amen.

(Y/our Name T/here)

i hear(d) you…

the words presented

spirits behind them

yet there’ll be no spike

in temperature, pressure or a Jaelhand

for this

is the Will of God

permissible until our desires or choices

only follow Grace unto holiness


of course i’d love to see you…

why miss chances

to swallow & eliminate pride

irony also sharpens iron

its piercing the natural ear

is sweet harmony to Heaven

the host of whom are also avid 

readers & writers known to zip

the mouth~theirs or ours

for good reason

A Fine Hand

featured pictures via Google search
for “fine handwriting”

 

In times of delay or unfamiliarity

frustration often emerges

It is unjust to call The Lord cranky, however,

when we seem to require so much handling

to get in gear.

 

Ever climbing, getting nowhere

unless positioned by Him

However large or fine the print

God’s hand is gentle yet mighty at Will

crafting the jolt of electricity

an atmosphere of different shocks

an’ earth to absorb it all.

 

Who hath ears to hear already has

The eyes to see pose

a greater challenge

as we pieces of work

often occlude our own blessings

straining

to brace ourselves

in stockings

opaque as the style

of “that day”.

 

Please God

Grace every child

Lean not only on self-understanding

but read & heed Holy truth

in what time is due.
