The Colors Of The Winds

Proverbs 8:30-31

Then I was constantly at his side. I was filled with delight day after day, rejoicing always in his presence, rejoicing in his whole world and delighting in mankind.

I love the revealing of Jesus in this prayer and I long to look deeper into it! I’m here full of deep thoughts and questions.  As I grow older I’m learning that there’s still very much to be discovered that I’ve never known. And I’m using both pictures and songs to help to open up my heart to life changing questions.  I’m listening in and trusting my God for the answers. I know that’s where true wisdom comes from.

To start I will ask you…Isn’t this the most gorgeous picture you’ve seen in a long time?

It always brightens my day when I see it.  It’s so dramatic and it seems heavenly to me. It reminded me of this song

“The Colors Of The Wind”…

The first time I heard the song I was amazed at the wisdom in it.  I began to hear some good life lessons, I heard it saying a lot about the necessity of cultivating a heart that’s open to a respect for all of the human race, although we’re all different.

The one phrase in this song that caught my attention was about “learning things we never knew we never knew”    I sure did need lots of that in my life. I was sick of strife, racism and hatred. I was trying to learn how to find peace and love others that I didn’t always understand or agree with.  I sure needed big stretches.

I heard lessons in the song but I was wary of the love of myths and rumors. I had finally learned that  movies,  songs and lots of human wisdom are full of these.  An example of that comes to mind from a personal story of my own life when I was a young child. I was in love with the story of Pocahontas and John Smith; I had heard that it was a great romance. Tugged at my heart .  Her story was so romantic, fait maiden marries the man after saving his live.   I wanted to grow up a beautiful maiden who met and married a man who came and fell madly in love with me. But after I was grown, I learned that this legend I had loved was not truth. It was fiction that became a legend.  She never married him, in fact they were only casual friends, many years apart in age. Her life was romanticized by the Disney story and much of it was not based on fact.

A childhood myth was busted along with my bubble of love for misinformation. That lesson has come back to mind a lot and I’m sure we’ve all had such experiences.

Growing up we learn that life is full of rumor and romanticized legends. All is not as it first appears to be. We all have much to learn,  things we never knew we needed to know.

Now, back to the song. Layers of lessons I saw. It made me see the ugliness in self righteous, know it all attitudes; both our own and those of others. It’s a pleasant reminder of our need to take a closer look at other cultures and their legends.

I hope to see lessons about how I can grow into a kinder, broader and more hospitable people?  I think we might need to come out of our stale life boxes and open up to learning that God loves humanity. Holy Spirit knows how to take us into wisdom’s ways to go there.

Jesus often used parables about things of the world to teach lessons.  Songs are parables. Many parables from the world are used to teach spiritual secrets. Now, I’m aware that some really religious and carnal mindsets see shadows of suspicion and are not open to wisdom from unusual places.   We need to remember that God spoke to a man through a donkey; God won’t fit in our religious boxes.  I once heard  a man say “You can learn something from the dumbest man you’ll ever meet”    I sure do believe the world needs lots more of that kind of wisdom.

Father God is looking for wise and fully committed soul winners, fishers of men.

1 Cor 9:

19 For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more. 20 And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law; 21 To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law. 22 To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some. 23 And this I do for the gospel’s sake, that I might be partaker thereof with you.

We need to be alert and prayerful to listen for the wisdom of God in all situations. The things we need to know that we never knew we never knew are vast and they’re all hidden in the heart of the Father. We need to learn to listen to his voice. He is the One who paints with all the colors of the wind. We are the ones who have a lot to learn.  He is jealous to guard us from all lis and harmful intentions, but zealous to teach us how to do life wisely. He looks for hearts that are open to him

Teach us, God, to number our days so that we might gain a heart of wisdom!

Communing With Hearts

Discoveries

I enjoy spending time learning about the matters of life, and especially where it involves the hearts of human beings. Because of my own personal life experience I want to learn so deep thought calls to me

When we think deep we’re led to search for truth. Who am I? What is life really all about? As a result of deep thoughts and unanswered questions we’re often led to the scriptures. That’s a wonderful place to discover truth. Did you know that Jesus and his word of life is the source of all the goodness in the world? It’s really true. And it’s true that as we grow up in learning Him we learn about ourselves.

“Stopping to reflect is one of the most valuable activities people can do to grow.”― John C. Maxwell

Life in hard times can become a lesson. The really wise learn quickly that knowing God will help us to know ourselves. God advises us in his word to “Commune with your own heart upon your beds”

And as we learn about ourselves we see our need for a savior. And we will find that Jesus is the only savior. We find out that dissapointment in the things that we’ve lived in and that fill our lives will often drive us toward eternal truth. That’s exactly what we need.

I’m learning to talk to my Father in deep secret places about myself. I’m amazed about his life changing graces. God loves to make all things new and fresh inside so the light shines through to the outside.

I hope you give this some serious thought. Reason being that unless we make peace with ourselves at the core we will never know true peace. As we pass through experiences of learning on our life journey we will find that we need to pause and seek wisdom and grace to adapt to changing situations and seasons of life. Knowing God will teach us who he created us to be in any season. It’s glorious!

Jesus invites us to come and drink of his living waters.
