A CITY ON A HILL CANNOT BE HIDDEN



A CITY ON A HILL CANNOT BE HIDDEN. IT IS A LIKE A LANTERN UNTO A PATH.
 






“A City upon a Hill” is a phrase from the parable of Salt and Light in Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount. In Matthew 5:14, Jesus tells his listeners,
"You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden."

Be reminded of who you are and whose you are!


Be Blessed,

LIVING WATERS THAT REFRESH THE SOUL


LIVING WATERS
 
 
 
 


Then he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb, in the middle of its street. On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.”

REVELATION 22:1-2

YOU ARE GOD'S HANDIWORK




YOU ARE GOD'S HANDIWORK


You are the handiwork work of the LORD! GOD loves us to much that we are created in multifaceted hues, shapes, sizes. Because of GOD’S magnificence and love, you possess profound gifts and talents, all of which are designed to bless one another and glorify the presence and reality of GOD.

You are GOD’S INSTRUMENTS of Light, Hope, Peace, Joy, and Inspiration! It is our “Divine Calling” and “Pilgrimage in Truth” to live into both the manifestation and fulfillment of this precious and gracious gift!

Never ever for one moment, nor second, doubt your magnificence, giftedness, uniqueness, beauty, purpose nor destiny, neither the fact that you are LOVED with a LOVE whose depth, breadth, and height are so profound that its magnitude defies our full comprehension, yet requires our simple acceptance of this profound LOVE. You are LOVED because you are LOVE! Thank you for being YOU! Go in Peace today and everyday! Blessings and peace be upon you always

Spring Blessings To The Beloved


A Reflection Written in Honor of Each of You:  



Spring Blessings To The Beloved

 

May you be graced and refreshed by the SPIRIT of rejuvenation,

Overflow with unquenchable bliss,

Bask in the awe of lovely things to yet come,

Be showered by the freshness of morning rain,

Marvel in the splendorous hues of Nature’s bounty; her cloak of flowers and trees,

Be a beneficiary of prosperity as vast as the blue sky,

Be enraptured by the  inspiration that all Winters become Spring,

Be revitalized by the fragrance of fresh cut flowers,

And

Be blessed by the glad tidings during this season of Spring and the days to come!

 

Blessings & Namaste

Kevin Mason

Minnie Riperton Montage

Celebrating the Life and Legacy of Minnie Riperton
 
11/8/1947-7/12/1979
 
Minnie Riperton Montage
 
Minnie, a rare once in a lifetime voice with a vocal register kissed by the breath of GOD and the whisper of angels with a spirit so free, so loving, and so beautiful. May you forever be loved and always remembered. Thank you for the immortal gift of your artistry. Your voice soared to the heavens and your song writing ability was like that of a canvas of flowers that were sprinkled poetry to the soul. There is and never will be another like you! “Loving you is easy, because you are beautiful.”

ACRONYM FOR CHANGE









CHANGE
Beloved of the Most High: You have not happened upon this meditation neither by accident nor by default. There have been many challenges that you have faced recently and you're feeling overpowered; oftentimes, like you are being overtaken and drowning in the tidal waves of life. You might be wondering whether or not if it is worth it to read any further because it appears that your efforts are in vain and the result is futile.
 
 
Beloved, you were carried here by the very waves that you thought would consume you. You were lead here by a gracious and loving FORCE that is greater than you.
 
 
You have been seeking an answer(s), a response, and a resolution. Stay a while and rest. Be still as the answer is not in your fight against the waves, but by your ability to embrace them, give in to them, recognize them, seek to understand the message that they are offering you, and become one them for in doing so you are allowing not only yourself, but your perspective, and your circumstances to CHANGE. There is tremendous power in letting go! When one lets go, he/she opens himself/herself to new and greater opportunities in God's plan and grace!
 
 
May you be graced by the gift of the blessing of CHANGE on this day; even right now as you read and reflect upon this quiet meditation. May the LORD grant you "divine courage and loving hope" and the quiet and sure confidence that surpasses all understanding, circumstances, knowledge, troubles, doubt, anxiety, and fear(s). May you find comfort, solace, and assurance today and everyday. Amen.
 
 
The dynamic blessedness of glorious CHANGE is not defined by the presence of adversity, tension, or disappointment, but CHANGE is an indicator that the gracious and loving presence of GOD'S grace and presence of The Holy Spirit has a greater calling, responsibility, and destiny for you as well as your life! Yes, be encouraged! Your circumstances have not defeated you! You are not a write-off! Do not give up! CHANGE is on the way! CHANGE is your gift!
 
 
Trust not in what you see and place not your treasures in earthen vessels, but have faith as "faith is the substance of things hoped and the presence of things not seen." Hebrews 11:1. God is still on the throne!
 
Take heart, comfort, and solace, because "the race is not given to the swift, but to he that endures to the end!
 
My prayer for you is the grace, the wisdom, and the blessedness of Glorious & Divine CHANGE.
 
Below are two brief Acronyms for Change. Read Them, Reflect Upon Them, & Rest In Them!
 
 
 
CHANGE IS A PROCESS, NOT AN EVENT
 
 
 
C - Courageous
 
H - Hope
 
A - Affects
 
N - New
 
G - Grace
 
E - Everyday
 
_________________________________________________________________________
 
C - Cultivating
 
H - Human
 
A - Altruism
 
N - Necessitates
 
G - Growth
 
E - Everyday

ACRONYM FOR PEACE

Beloved of the Most High: You have not happened upon this meditation neither by accident nor by default. You were lead here by a gracious and loving FORCE that is greater than you. You have been seeking an answer(s)...a response. Stay a while and rest. Be still...

Peace is not defined by the absence of adversity, challenges, or disappointments, but peace is the gracious and loving presence of GOD'S grace and presence of The Holy Spirit to sustain you and enable you to stand, yes, even right now, when circumstances would have otherwise overtaken and defeated you! You are not written off! Your circumstances have not defeated you! Do not give up!

Trust not in what you see and place not your treasures in earthen vessels, but have faith as "faith is the substance of things hoped and the presence of things not seen." Hebrews 11:1. God is still on the throne!

LIGHTS FROM THE CELESTIAL CITY OFGOD



LIGHTS FROM THE CELESTIAL CITY OF GOD
Prayer for Today: God is our strength, our hope, our refuge, and the light that provides sight upon our gloomy paths. On this day may you find peace, encouragement, and comfort in the presence of God's gracious loving kindness and be embraced by the rays of his love that radiates like the Eternal Light from the Lamp of Celestial City of God.  Amen

Here are the words and music to the great hymn, Like Sliver Lamps in a Distant Shrine
This hymn captures the essence of this Reflection
by
William C. Dix (Words) 1867
&
Charles H. Steggall (Music) 1867

Like Sliver Lamps in a Distant Shrine

Like silver lamps in a distant shrine,
The stars are sparkling bright;
The bells of the city of God ring out,
For the Son of Mary is born tonight.
The gloom is past, and the morn at last
Is coming with orient light.


No earthly songs are half so sweet
As those which are filling the skies,
And never a palace shone half so fair
As the manger-bed where our Savior lies;
No night in the year is half so dear
As this which has ended our sighs


The stars of heaven still shine as at first
They gleamed on this wonderful night,
The bells of the city of God peal out,
And the angels’ song still rings in the height,
And loves still turns where the Godhead burns,
Hid in flesh from fleshly sight.


Faith sees no longer the stable floor,
The pavement of sapphire is there,
The clear light of Heaven streams out to the world,
And the angels of God are crowding the air,
And Heaven and earth, thro’ the spotless birth,
Are at peace on this night so fair.

PRAYER FOR WISDOM

Wisdom is the astute application of knowledge. It embodies a profound comprehension and awareness of people, human behavior, circumstances, nature, the universe, and the presence of GOD, coalescing into the ability to appropriately and compassionately execute discernment, decisions, and actions all in keeping with this understanding. When King Solomon was the successor of the United Kingdom of Judah and Israel, he neither asked GOD for power, wealth, status, longevity, nor self-adulation. Instead, King Solomon asked GOD to help him govern his kingdom well and wisely. GOD was pleased with Solomon’s request because it was a humble, an earnest, and a selfless request. God honored Solomon’s requests and also granted him two things which most people desire: longevity and riches.

PRAYER FOR TODAY: Gracious LORD, we come before thy presence in a posture of gratitude and a heart of thanksgiving to express our deep and sincere reverence for the profound grace that you have bestowed upon us as your people; the sheep of your pasture and partakers of thy gracious bounty. We pray Dear LORD, that you would remind us of how special we are to you and that neither part of our hearts, our minds, nor our bodies are unknown to thee. Grant us the wisdom to trust in you and the movement of thy Holy Spirit and render us with the faith the size of a mustard seed. Teach us to petition thee for wisdom, temperance, patience, and love in place of our immodest desires and the temptations of self-indulgence, personal agenda, self-promotion, or supremacy over others. We ask this prayer in thy precious name. Amen.

STAND STILL


Stand Still
We are living in some of the most preeminent times, yet some of the most challenging times. It appears on some level that genuine compassion for others and the spiritual imperative that we are our brothers and sisters keepers are merely platitudes and that the spiritual imperative, that subsequent to our love for GOD, that we should love our neighbor as thyself is merely an exercise in rhetoric are all too often swallowed up by malignant narcissism, obsessive self-indulgence, and the unrestrained dislodge of power. It seems that our spiritual compass has gone awry and that the land is desolate and its people starving though gorging themselves on all types of substitutes to feed their hungry souls, yet never appeasing their gluttony.  Evil appears to blatantly flourish in the face hope and at the expense of good, while the acceptance of brokenness and injustice are elements that daily occur and has caused far too many persons to abdicate their faith for reason and to believe that this is as good as it gets.  Beloved, be not dismayed as God is still sovereign. It is during such times that we must continue to pray and act with spiritual temperance, wisdom, and love.

Prayer: Gracious LORD, we come before thy presence and ask that you will encourage our hearts, while reminding us that the race is not given to the swift, but to he/she who endures. LORD, help us to remember that sometimes, all that you require that we do is to trust you and stand still in thy holy presence and in your presence take solace under the shelter of your divine wings of refuge. Hear our prayer LORD we pray. Amen.

Strength and Weakness


On this day dear LORD caution us to never cease praying and to expect the miraculous in the ordinary. Teach us daily and by the moment to accept thy will and grant us the wisdom, faith, and the serenity to discern self-will from thy will. Teach us to humbly embrace the weakness of our strength and the strength of our weakness. This is our prayer today as we render thee thanks in Jesus’ name we pray.  Hear us dear LORD we pray. Amen

A Prayer For Those Who Have Loss A Loved One

A Reflection For You


"While the dust of that which you have loss has only started to settle,
the profundity of the absence of your beloved is still very profound, palpable, present.

An emptiness and a void seems to envelop you, while the absence of your beloved is dramatically heighten and felt as holidays and anniversaries approach and fold one into the other as you long for his/her presence. 



Though salty tears flood the windowpanes of your eyelids, invite and allow them to flow steady and run deeply like the Nile River,
For in their flowing they tell their own stories while cleansing one's soul, leaving their salty trail down your cheek.


As you reflect upon memories of happy times that caused your heart to soar and your mouth to burst with uncontrollable laughter, bask in the warmth of them as if being warmed by the sun at the height of the noonday. May you be nourished, strengthened, comforted, healed, and renewed by them.



When the sweet fragrance of spring fills your nostrils, allow this fragrance divine to wrap and intoxicate you causing you to drift away transcending both time and space with the knowledge that though a flower dies, the memory of its fragrance is eternal.


As a melody of the joyous sound of the music of air and the singing of birds caress the shell of your ear, allow it to touch, enrapture, and comfort your heart, dance upon your windowpane of your soul, and inspire you to love more deeply, more widely, and more freely because you come from love and because you are loved.


May you take solace and comfort in knowing that your beloved is near... he is/she is... 
Because the presence of God is with you and the Spirit of God lives within you now and forever."  Amen.
