Hello World…Across the Divide


Did you know there is a wall of division between every thing visible and invisible in this world?   You didn’t know that?  I recognized it the other day when my husband, who normally is a real nice fellow, turned into the grizzly bear from the north country.    All I did was, walk into the kitchen and say, “Good Morning, and how are you this morning?”  in my normal morning cheerful voice and suddenly the growling grizzly of the North bounded toward me with the word of a blasting North Wind across the divide…

I stepped back and whispered under my breath, “Lord, what is going on here? Into Your hands!”  The Wind blew by me and rushed into the living room chilling even the puppy sitting on the sofa. I opened my mouth and said in a lifted tone of voice, “What is wrong?”  and the Wind turned into a hurricane without rain. I just stood and listened to the raging word coming from the mouth of one who kisses me good night and hello  – and thought….his blood pressure is out of sight…..so I took a deep breath and prayed quietly “Lord, give him peace over this, whatever it is?”

It turned out to be that the garbage can stinks.  The garbage can should have been taken out the night before. Someone had put something that stunk in the garbage can and this morning the smell was putrid….. however, I didn’t smell anything at all…I asked where the garbage was and he had taken it out of the can and it was sitting at the front door to be taken out when he went to work… He sat down in his recliner and I smiled as the puppy climbed into his lap and began barking like a wild wolf of the North as she pounded her 4 lb body against his chest as if she was saying, “don’t yell at my mama!  don’t  yell at my mama!”  He smiled as she stopped and turned jumping down to come running to me. She laid her little head against my chest and began licking my neck as if to comfort me.  I smile and said, “Animals are smarter that humans, they know how to love and how others are supposed to love one another!  You could learn something from this little one>>>”

The Lord speaks to my heart:  His Word to me:………My Child, because I love, I desire that you love me.  I am grieved because My children are separated by a great divide  and they do not understand what it means to love one another.  They put on the flesh-wall of thinking they are loving one another, but to love one another means that you treat one another with the love you say you have for one another.  My Son laid his life down to destroy the walls between each other and in Him you have the power to walk in the way MY SON has shown you in the Word.  I give My Spirit to all whosoever will accept my Son and will walk in the Way, the Truth and the Life. Your friends, your neighbors, your family, need mercy and grace….even your enemy needs grace and mercy from you.   I am asking You to begin this love walk by granting grace and mercy to all who come like a frosty mighty wind who know not the Lord….Be assured that I am with  you and will help you to replace the walls of the divide with grace and love one for another….                                                  

Abba, help me to speak kind and loving to all I come in contact with, especially my husband.
