Day 17: Without

I don't know who I am without GOD.

Now this isn't rocket science,

but it is almost more complicated

even though it is so simple.

Do we need to be talking about GOD

in order to be with HIM?


Do we need to be doing "godly" things

in order to be with GOD?


Do we have to live a life like a monk

in order to be with GOD?


But don't we live like that?

Either we are with HIM or we are not.

We are either doing Christian~ese or not.

It isn't this or that with GOD.

As HE gently revealed that to me yesterday

as I felt so chaotic.

I wasn't thinking straight. My thoughts were all over the place.

I missed GOD.

I went to the beach to have a talk with GOD,

as we have awesome talks at the beach.

And HE spoke. As HE always answers your questions

in inaudible ways that feels as if HE is standing right before you.

As the words


came rushing through me being.

No wonder I felt so disconnected.

There was a void in my life.

As my focus has been GOD & JESUS in all things at all times,

as I was preparing for the conference,

I miss that undistracted time.

And yesterday I was back "doing" life

and I almost forgot how to do life

because my life

was doing and being with GOD.

Sounds confusing doesn't it.

But GOD didn't leave me.

JESUS still saved me.

The HOLY SPIRIT is still my power source.

Yesterday taught me that

I can't do life without GOD

because I am HIS.

I can't leave home without HIM.

I am my best self IN HIM.

I am complete IN HIM.

I really don't know how to do life without HIM.

GOD stopped me in my tracks because I invited HIM back in.

How could I ever forget the one who never forgets me?


Not sure if I confused you all, as I am confusing myself,

but think about it

really think about it~

Who are you WITHOUT GOD?

I know who I am~

an imperfect mess.

No wonder JESUS said

“I am the Vine, you are the branches. When you’re joined with ME and I with you, the relation intimate and organic, the harvest is sure to be abundant.

Separated, you can’t produce a thing. Anyone who separates from ME is deadwood,

gathered up and thrown on the bonfire. But if you make yourselves at home with ME and MY words are at home in you, you can be sure that whatever you ask will be listened to and acted upon. This is how my FATHER shows who HE is~

when you produce grapes, when you mature as my disciples" (John 15:5).

So who am WITH GOD?

Just a

"NOBODY" (listen to the song below)
