Today –

Take time to “see” the world around you

and “know” that Sophia,

the Divine Feminine aspect of the Nameless Light,

is Present in all that you see!

Celebrate the Abundance

that has been given!

Know that the Earth is a Living Spiritual Being –

Go into this day knowing that you are in the Presence of God!

“EL” is the first name given for God.  This name holds the image of God — male and female, all encompassing, diverse, many faces, many names.    And so I use “EL” as I speak of God today. 

But who am I , and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this?  Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand.

1 Chronicles, 29: 14

Hands, Lord —

Your gift to us.

We stretch them up to You.

Always You hold them.

Your hands,

scarred,

became a sign

of Your love

no time can erase.

Your hands

which have us

inscribed on their palms,

pour down blessing

on the details of our days.

There is no doubt that there are times when we are facing obstacles, standing on the edge of the precipice, feeling “I cannot bear any more!”  There are times of great grief and loss that feel unbearable, and in many ways seem to be.  And, we are told that “God holds ALL OF OUR TIMES in the Palm of EL’s Hand”.  That verse has carried me through such times;  know that although I may feel I am dangling from a finger, God will gently pull me back into the Center of “EL’s Hand”.  I use the name for God – “EL” – because it encompasses all aspects of God – Male and Female. 

It is such a great comfort in knowing

the Lord never gives us more than we can bear;

and that in all that befalls us,

She is there to care for us,

He is there to tend to us,

EL is there to provide for us,

all in Unconditional Love –

Abundance overflowing!
