Just Show Up


When 2 or more are gathered

you have a room that is complete

needing no other~

but then 2 more

& another 2

& another 2

& another 2

show up

and not only do you have a room with 10 people~

because there was the

ONE

who they came to

be with

just because

they all want to be in

HIS PRESENCE.

And because

HIS PRESENCE

is

present~

these 10 people

are no longer the same people they were

when they first came into the room

because

we

showed up

&

so

did

HE

because

HE

was waiting for us

so that

HE

could

meet with each one of us

so personally~

speaking to the the deep depths of our hearts

with a transforming love

that you have no choice

but to be changed.

All because of

THE ONE

who we came to be with

craves & desires

to be in our presence,

and all we had to do was

SHOW UP

and bring our whole self~

every nook and crany of self~

the good parts

the not so good parts

the hurting parts

the past parts that we wish we could forget.

Why would we?

Why wouldn't we

because

HE knows every one of those parts

&

so desires

so craves

to speak to each one

in HIS own personal way

yet with the same message~

"I love you. I always have.

So please let's hang out more

so I can be more in the midst of your less

because

that is why I created you in the first place"

I think~

what if I didn't show up?

Life would have continued

and these women would still have been touched by

HIS PRESENCE

yet I would have missed so much

because

HE

invited me

and

why would I say no to the

ONE

who so desires

who so craves

being just with me

& just with you

no matter whether we can believe it or not.

It is so easy~

as all it requires is to

SHOW UP

& be present

with the ONE who

is always

PRESENT~

even if we don't show up.

Thank you to the 2+more who also showed up

this past weekend

so we could all experience

HIS PRESENCE

together

yet so personally

so that each one of us will never be the same.

So I ask you~

What are waiting for~

just SHOW UP.

"The LORD is near to all who call upon Him, To all who call upon HIM in truth"

(Psalm 145:18)
