"Those Who Dwell in the Shelter of the Most High..."

"Those Who Dwell in the Shelter of the Most High..."
Wow!  Today Psalm 91 has come up THREE TIMES, and ALL before 8am!  Now, lest you fret, I get up SUPER early most days, and I encountered it twice during my prayer time, which I incorporate with my walk!

"Those who dwell in the most high will rest in the shadow of the Almighty." Psalm 91:1

Now, dwelling in Him as the most high doesn't mean following God when we want to. 

He WILL protect and defend, but we MUST dwell in Him and follow all His ways. 

His foundation is sure and His way is narrow. 

Let's follow Him today and seek His protection. "The meek will inherit the earth" shouldn't scare us. 

Christ is meek, and as He walked on earth He turned over the tables to protect His Father's house. 

Let's be meek as He is meek, dwell in Him, trust His protection, whose ways are sure.

Where do you find your grounding?

Gosh, I've had such a challenge sharing my thoughts online over the past six months.  Can you feel me?  You know what I mean?  People are griping about masks, challenging politics, yelling at people for complying or not complying, pick the issue. I am here today to just observe the craziness of this time and to comment on something completely different.  

I chose to show up here from a different vantage point than you might see shared otherwise.  I know we have all witnessed chaos and destruction on all levels over the past several months.  I have been working emphatically over the past 6 months especially, and for several years before that, to really learn how to take care of me so that I can show up for other people as I know I am called to do. I believe God has a really high standard for us who believe in Him and are called according to His purpose, so I know my primary objective is to constantly humble myself before God, acknowledge, confess, and repent of my own greed, malice, envy, jealousy, and strife so that God can be known.  As I take care of myself, I know I can show up more like this person I know God has called me to be.  

Humbling myself goes beyond the normal "daily devotion" and "confess and repent."  I worked on routine, environment, and balance to create a scenario where I can always show up as that BEST self.  

Over the weeks and months, I will discuss HOW you can do this more deeply, consistently, purely, and lovingly.

When all help feels like it breaks loose, where do you get your grounding?  What examples do you have to share?

If you're looking for low-cost countertop wipes that are natural and don't contain harsh chemicals, I got the hookup for you!

From my friend, Kerry Mathes. I love all these recipes! 🙌🏻

☀️It only took me about 10 minutes to make 3 packs of Thieves wipes! It's what I use instead of a Lysol or Clorox bleach wipe. They clean, but with NONE of the harmful side-effects! I usually keep a container in the kitchen and then one in each of our bathrooms. They're fabulous for quickly wiping down surfaces. Wipe and toss!

PS - If you're like me and don't love the idea of a throwaway wipe, just fill the container with cheap washcloths. And then just toss them in your laundry when you do a load. It's that easy. I typically use baby washcloths; they're perfect for this job!

💛Here's how make them:

🔶I use 3 of the disposal round containers. ( You can find them in your grocery store in the food storage aisle, by the bags & foil ). She used regular coffee filters but you could use unbleached, for a reduced toxin load.

🔸Fill one container with warm water.
Add two capfuls of Thieves Household Cleaner to the water and stir.

🔸Fill the two empty containers with coffee filters. If you wiggle/shuffle them around a bit, you can more easily separate them later.

🔸Pour 1/3 of the Thieves Cleaner water over each of the coffee filters.

🔸Add coffee filters to the last container, the one you mixed in. (You should have 1/3 of the water mixture left in it.)

🔸Snap on the lids. Turn upside down to saturate all the filters. If you have extra solution, add more filters if possible, or save the THHC solution in a jar for your next batch. Or you can add the extra solution to a spray bottle.

🔶Use whenever you need to clean quickly! I love these to give to my kids to wipe down surfaces, too. We use them on countertops, toilets ( do NOT flush these!) , stovetops, microwave, in your car...

The possibilities are endless!

Everyone wants to know the status of our move!!!
