Divine Union

people-2561053_1920Rarely have I been so unsure of what God is saying-
Yet rarely have I been so sure of who He is
Rarely have my thoughts of where He is leading me shifted so frequently-
Yet rarely has my calling and destiny felt so secure
Rarely has the future seemed so shrouded in mystery-
Yet rarely have I walked in such confidence and peace

Maybe the goal isn’t to get somewhere
Maybe it is to keep walking in step with Someone
In divine union
In sweet communion

Maybe it isn’t about accomplishments, or even fulfilled prophecy and promises
Maybe it is about the naturally supernatural impact of a surrendered life-
A life yielded to the One
Who is Perfect Love

I’ve heard a lot of talk in recent years about new wine. Yet I keep having this sense that we’re still trying to fit the new wine into old wineskins. Into old methods and formats. Into old thought patterns. Into old paradigms.

But what if His new thing really is a new thing? Or maybe the new thing is actually a really old thing that just feels really new because we’ve drifted so far from true North? What if what He’s doing offends our sense of maturity, or our ideas of prophetic insight and revelation? What if He challenges the assumptions we’ve made about His Word and His ways? What if He isn’t speaking to us in exactly the same ways He has in the past? What if He chooses not to handcuff Himself to theological patterns that make us feel secure?

God never changes. This bedrock truth is our eternal plumb line. However, our understanding of who He is should be continually expanding and growing. Growth brings growing pains. Growth changes our size, our proportions, and our perspective. When you grow, many old things that used to fit so comfortably, no longer fit at all.

But His love always fits perfectly. Always has, always will. His love never changes. His love never fails.

“But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears.” -1 Corinthians 13:8-10

Could it be that completion–wholeness–fullness–perfection–will finally begin to manifest when the Body realizes that:

…Our highest prize
…Our highest privilege
…Our highest calling

Is simple, unbroken, uncomplicated, pure communion–divine union–with Him?

Lord, align our hearts and minds with Yours. Help us to live in the simple beauty of daily, intimate communion with You–wherever that leads us. We want to be where You are, do what we see You doing, and love how You love–now and through eternity. ~Amen

  1. Awesome! I especially liked this:

    “I’ve heard a lot of talk in recent years about new wine. Yet I keep having this sense that we’re still trying to fit the new wine into old wineskins. Into old methods and formats. Into old thought patterns. Into old paradigms.”

    I couldn’t agree more. We want the “new wine” but we don’t seem to want to let go of the old wineskin. I trust that Jesus can help us make the transition. We just need to see things through His eyes.

    Good to see you writing here again. 🙂 Blessings.

    1. Mel!! So good to see your name pop up! I hope all is well. I’m still super occupied with other things but it feels good to be able to still pop in here now and again. And I’m with you – praying and believing we learn (and keep learning) to see through His eyes. Glad there is at least some movement in that direction. BIG blessings to you!

  2. Thank you Cindy, for putting my deepest feelings into words… today this helped bring me to a place of love and peace that I desperately needed, as I fight for something that I know not yet the outcome of. Many Blessings. XX
