* The following is a prayer written by Ted Loder. *

Praise be to You, Gracious God, for this day, this earth, this life, for the Weave of Miracles blessing us and for Your quiet power sustaining us.

We praise You for times of laughter and tears, risk and reconciliation, reflection and healing, and for the consistent presence of Your Spirit making all things sacred.

Praise to You, awesome God, for the Holy mysteries of our struggling and wondering, for our trials and triumphs, and all that moves us to awe, to love, to pray, to serve, since it is Your Spirit that moves us so and is creating us still; through our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

A Holy Halt

January 23, 2015 at 1:31 am (Poems) (, , , , , , , , , , )

Into the deep blue
I seem to notice a different hue
Pulling, reaching, calling out –
a Holy Halt
His Voice cries out…

Its not a halt like a Hitler cry
To stop and never question why
It’s a “what now” considerth thee
Everything this day belongs to Me
Everything for the last six days
were Mine
You were just a branch part of the Vine

But today, My Child do nothing your way
Dedicate these twenty four hours to The Way.
Let nothing come in to distraught or distract
Be viligent and steadfast sure
Upon My Word and the Sabbath cure
I’ve worked within your mindless days
Reflect and ask Me where I am
Make Me your only pursuit, Me – The Lamb
Seek My sacrifice and it’s resting place
And live this day be filled with My Grace

For six days you pursue to fulfill “your” needs
Now let Me teach you to need your knees
Bent and totally prostrate and prone
To seek My Face and Mine alone

See, My Child how far you go
When a Sabbath day heart beats with strength to grow
Six times more I give in one day
If only for twenty four hours you’ll come My Way

Yes, I see you seek Me throughout
The six of work and worldly route
Yet see the difference on this day set apart
I’m not interested in your work – it’s time for Me to win your heart
Can you not give to Me just one day?
To dive down deep in heavenly play?
To look about with different eyes
To look for more – that sanctifies

To look into your family’s faces this day
And look for more than you do every day
To seek to serve from deep within
Not with your hands and the strength of your limbs
But with My heart as the lead that sets everything apart

Trust My Word that your body needs rest
Ignore your antsy limbs and restless mind – take the test
Don’t seek “rest” with zoned out activity
Games and TV and routine proclivities
Be open and pause to let Me in
Where shalom can come in and reveal your sin
Then the miracle of My clean white Love
Can restore and recover what’s been lacking in the push and shove

See this day, or determine to see
How tossed and driven the world has robbed of thee
The six day toll needs My counsel and time
The seventh day slumber is for Me and Mine

See My Holy Halt
Is a trumpet of Love
With healing and restoration
In a language Above
Higher than your thoughts
Higher than your ways
Can you not take twenty four hours and reach only for how I pay?

Don’t let the illusion of “your life” become a lover
That woo’s you into her bed only to discover
That nothing is yours and never shall be
All is Mine for eternity

Today remind your lungs they draw upon only My breath
Speak to your mind and tell it to think on My Best
Refresh your ears to hear My Words spoken directly to you
I’m intimate and drawn to pay attention to you
Will you lift your eyes to Me
As I cup your precious face
Within my Holy hands and lavish your soul inside My grace
Just one day, one day a week is all I ask
Oh, how My heart breaks that My beloved responds as if it’s a burdensome task
Resisted is My flow of Life – to give away
To fill up, to revive, to restore
On My Sabbath rest
You can ask Me for more!

Hear My Holy Halt
It’s whispered on the morning dew
Your every care and thought
Can be set free and made anew
Remade into the things that seem small and powerless
Within My eyes they become empty and your soul remembers this:
My yolk is easy and My burden light”
Enter in to this and see the whole world full of Light.

Now hear My Holy Halt
With different tones and different hues
It’s an oasis of Love
Not a call to fill the pews
Enter into My Rest
And find the Substance of your soul
And I will call a Holy Halt
To all that doesn’t make you whole!

Ezekiel 20:20

I Am Adonai your God; live by My Laws, observe My rulings, and obey them. Keep My Shabbats (Sabbaths) holy; they will be a sign between Me and you, so that you will know that I Am Adonai your God.

Isaiah 58:13-14

If you hold back your foot on Shabbat from pursuing your own interest on My holy day; if you call Shabbat delight, Adonai’s holy day, worth honoring; then honor it by not doing your usual things or pursuing your interest or speaking about them.
If you do, you will find delight in Adonai I will make you ride on the heights of the land and feed you with the heritage of your ancestor Ya’akov (Jacob), for the mouth of Adonai has spoken.

Mark 2:27

Then He (Yeshua/Jesus) said to them, “Shabbat was made for mankind, not mankind for Shabbat; so the Son of Man is Lord even of Shabbat.”

John 7:23-24 (Yeshua speaking)

“If a boy is circumcised on the Shabbat so that the Torah (Teachings) of Moses will not be broken, why are you angry with Me because I made a man’s whole body well on Shabbat? Stop judging by surface appearances, and judge the right way!”

Blessed Unexpected!

March 1, 2013 at 3:41 am (Mile Stones) (, , , )

Alas the sun has set and the moon has been out reminding us that though we cannot see the Sun, its still there. The hours ticked by and dropped countless blessings inside my heart, cloaked in “unexpected” glory.

The hot water tank that was just replaced Tuesday decided to take the first days off of its new promotion into my apartment.

The mattress company forgot what time they were supposed to deliver our warrantied mattress.

Then in the middle of my – finally – hot bath, the knock on the door for delivery arrived.

I expected my daughter to call around 11, she was in town and my hope was to see her before she left for home one more time. (We parents think “one more time” will do the trick when an eternity isn’t long enough 🙂 )

When I went to bed the night before my mind had set on what tomorrow would vaguely look like. The sun rose, knocked on my lids, and started to shine the days lesson promptly. Unexpected beauty awaits you!

By 1pm, I wasn’t buying anything but the unexpected part. Grump!

By 3pm, every stitch of unexpected’s turned out to be beautiful. Everything had been “on time” and went exactly how I needed but didn’t even know it. Agenda’s mask and cloak the moment by moment amazing attention to detail God gives us everyday. Turns out I needed the day to learn how to see beauty where its obvious blemish seeks to obscure. I wasn’t looking under a rock for a piece of bread. Who does that?? Achem…God; care to follow?? Grace be to Him, I did.

My daughter came to SPEND THE NIGHT and everything happened exactly as needed. My idea of its timing…made it mine and as such held little satisfaction. His is much more than I could have asked for. My whole week went something like this…unexpected…grump…hmmm…maybe not so bad…unexpected…grump…hmmm okay that worked…unexpected…SURPRISE…Life IS here!

I am beyond blessed…His blessings rain down always in unexpected’s. No one expected a “baby-God”. No one expected a God to be killed. No one…incredibly…expected Him to rise again. Sadly, too many, don’t expect HE’s still here!

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ❤
