salt:

a soil amendment that turns piles of manure into fertile soil.

salt also is a catalyst that tempers wildly inappropriate (excess) activity of zume.

Not long ago, the Holy Spirit nominated me a Salty Mother. It is my honor and cross to daily be at attention, using whatever crap shows up to amend the soil of my children's hearts. This is incredible mass to be converted into living, fertile substance for future fruitfulness! 

The Greek word δόξα (doxa) conveys weight, substance, and divine quality.

It is the glory of God in the body, in nature and in food that particularly attracts my attention. Being salt means for me, the weight, the substance, the divine quality that renders yeast into substantial fuel, and any challenge into discipleship, by taking on the yoke of Jesus Christ.

Greek word ἐπαισχύνομαι (epaischunomai) conveys ashamedness, a proper sense of error due to wrongly identifying, or misplaced confidence
With this confession, I'm here to take the piles of dung that have accumulated in my brain as far as food and the body, (human knowledge) and convert it into fertile mass AND nourishment for others. May my own idolatry (yeast) and confrontation of it (salt) become a living fuel (compost AND/OR bread) that nourishes multitudes. In my children, it is the soil I'm continually working. In the Kingdom outside my home, I am just Peter taking bread from Jesus and confidently giving it to the hungry crowd, knowing that the Source will never, ever run out. "Feed my lambs, feed my sheep"

In the yeast application, it is the diligent act of constantly tempering overgrowths. In the body, an overgrowth of yeast creates sickness. This overgrowth is fed by indulgence. 

This morning, a word to me:

If it is my desires inhibiting me from integral, engaged discipleship of my children, I am under the yoke of self-indulgence.

If it is what I think I "should" do inhibiting me from integral, engaged discipleship of my children, I am under the yoke of religion.

These two yokes are the constant bubbling activity that I have to engage my mind in order to temper.
My sin, the manure heap that repentance converts into substance for future fruitfulness.

Without confrontation, there is no fruit.
Idolatry and confidence cannot cohabit.

I longed for satiety, full confidence and ability to love unashamedly and without fear of lack. My idols kept that from becoming a reality.

What the Holy Spirit confronted in me was my wrongly placed identification and confidence in physical health, wellness, and food. All of these were shadows. His confrontation activated my vision to the truth and introduced me to the substance. 
"Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things unseen."

He did this so that by Christ, He Himself would fully satisfy every craving for pleasure, beauty and wisdom.

I can't wait to introduce you to all the wonderful things I have been offered!

Truth or Tradition?

 Seven years ago, our family began observing what we call Teshuah . I liked the seven letter word because it filled out my chalkboard calendar nicely. The third week in February, both in 2014 and in 2016, we were delivered out of very difficult situations. The first was a mortgage we couldn't pay for a house we couldn't afford to fix according to HOA standards and a commute we couldn't sustain. We now acknowledge that our difficulties stemmed from idolatry, coveting, and lack of discipline/wisdom. The second, a little house so full of mold that I had not been able to fully breathe in the two years we lived there, ending with a rat in the crawlspace which was only evacuated by a hot water leak that steamed up through a vent straight to the attic, condensing all that water over our belongings, which then molded. Masked, I threw out a massive portion of our baby things, crying and wondering what we should do. He provided. That's what. He moved us to the cape cod on Dellros

Power and Protection

  This morning, as I thanked  יהוה ‎  for His perfect knowledge and order in knitting together the new person within my womb a scripture from Proverbs came to mind: “The Lord by wisdom founded the earth, By understanding He established the heavens.”  Proverbs‬ ‭3‬:‭19‬  Then this morning, the Spirit took me to Jeremiah, & I heard this echo:  “It is He who made the earth by His power, Who established the world by His wisdom; And by His understanding He has stretched out the heavens.”  Jeremiah‬ ‭10‬:‭12‬ ‭‬ As the only One competent and capable of creating the heavens and the earth, designed the human body in its completeness and all life and symbiotic relationships between every living thing, isn’t it preposterous to believe that He should need our supervision ensuring His work is good?  ““Woe to the one who quarrels with his Maker— An earthenware vessel among the vessels of earth! Will the clay say to the potter, ‘What are you doing?’ Or the thing you are making say, ‘He has no ha

food is prophecy.

What if you walked into the market and all you saw was bananas? Or maybe just banana chips? Stale, dried out versions of something once living, sweet but a little like cardboard. Here is what I keep hearing about the Spirit of God. Fresh. Alive. Hydrating. Nourishing. EVERYTHING EVERYONE IS LOOKING FOR. You guys...can we shatter the light show and cut the drama? We do not need to enhance  the incredible richness and glory of God. It doesn't look anything like a show. I have to be brutally honest. If I found myself enhancing  something, I can point at that thing now and tell you it was because I sensed my own lack and felt responsible for it. I've had experiences at churches like walking into a store with only banana chips. At some point, that fruit was attached to a tree somewhere but what I see before me is shelf-stable mimicry. You have to watch out for pockets of people that seem to all be displaying the same kind of fruit that isn't very vibrant. You kind of sense
