Sharing this from a friend as it’s so spot on:

YHWH 

"There was a moment when Moses had the nerve to ask God what his name is. God was gracious enough to answer, and the name he gave is recorded in the original Hebrew as YHWH. 

Over time we’ve arbitrarily added an “a” and an “e” in there to get YaHWeH, presumably because we have a preference for vowels. But scholars and rabbis have noted that the letters YHWH represent breathing sounds, or aspirated consonants. When pronounced without intervening vowels, it actually sounds like breathing. YH (inhale): WH (exhale). 

So a baby’s first cry, his first breath, speaks the name of God. A deep sigh calls His name – or a groan or gasp that is too heavy for mere words. Even an atheist would speak His name unaware that their very breath is giving constant acknowledgment to God. Likewise, a person leaves this earth with their last breath, when God’s name is no longer filling their lungs. 

So when I can’t utter anything else, is my cry calling out His name? 

Being alive means I speak His name constantly. Is it heard the loudest when I’m the quietest? 

In sadness, we breathe heavy sighs. In joy, our lungs feel almost like they will burst. In fear, we hold our breath and have to be told to breathe slowly to help us calm down. When we’re about to do something hard, we take a deep breath to find our courage.  

When I think about it, breathing is giving him praise. Even in the hardest moments! 

This is so beautiful and fills me with emotion every time I grasp the thought. God chose to give himself a name that we can’t help but speak every moment we’re alive. All of us, always, everywhere. Waking, sleeping, breathing, with the name of God on our lips."

But ... what’s your limit?

But ... what’s your limit?

After seeking my steps for my day, this post by Jesse Duplantis came before my eyes.


Talk about getting popped on the back of the head.  (Did your grandma or dad every do that to you when you were growing up to get you thinking a d moving? πŸ€—)


Well, friend, it still happens ... at least in my life.  


I have people laid on my heart to reach out to, to connect with, to speak life and encouragement to, to offer a hand up, to share an opportunity or two ... and I say, yes I will contact them.  And then life happens and controls my time and energy instead of me controlling my time and energy.  


I coach others about this while I’m also improving and coaching myself.  


With every BUT I use or start a sentence (excuse) with ... I always find a limiting belief from my past (some distant and some not so distant, i mean like  so fresh it still reeks of the essence!) that is behind my holding back or choice of failing instead of moving forward.  


Talk about accountability ... 3 little letters ... heap load piles of accountability! 


Here’s Jesse’s words that are speaking to me this morning.  Thanks Jesse!

 Life isn’t about standing still; it is about moving forward. With God you really are either moving ahead or falling behind. If you want to move ahead with God in your life and receive His best, you’ve got to give up your “but...”! You must allow God to purge you of past fruit—whatever or whoever that may be!


Yesterday’s fruit isn’t the focus anymore. Today and tomorrow are what’s important. Take a minute and go read what  Philippians 3:13-14 says about it.

So let’s get moving! 


Share below or in my chat groups where you are choosing and putting action into no longer being blocked and putting action into moving forward? 


If you’re led to connect with me today ... then your on my schedule, I’m waiting to encourage and bless you!  


No more BUTS! 


Tobias versus the vacuum

Oh my greatness!  This dog keeps bringing me the best laughter and joy as well as some pretty spot on insights.  Who knew a dog's life could be so insightful!

My heart was drawn in two separate directions. I didn't know whether to put Valor on the dog or Peace and Calming or Stress Away.  

What things in your life have you been running from in fear? 
What things spark fear in your but your desire to overcome for a better cause triumphs?
