A Daily Picturesque Eucharisteo Encounter

20120101-204753.jpg

Really, it’s no secret…1000 Gifts, A Holy Experience, Ann Voskamp, quite simply, or shall I say simplistically, rocking my existence beyond imagination.

Words of a life…no, no…Words of LIFE breathing a culture of Eucharisteo into a tangible lifestyle. One seen, touched, heard, smelled, tasted.

Ahhh…TASTE and SEE that the LORD is GOOD indeed!

Hmmmm….How good? Beyond measure, yes, but HOW good? HOW does He show His Goodness?

The Word, oh the wonderful Word, tells to TASTE and SEE! Look around, taste His goodness in your life, see what He is doing, in every moment, in every day!

“O taste and see that the Lord [our God] is good! Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man who trusts and takes refuge in Him.” (Psalm 34:8 AMP)

Then write, yes, record these moments, these reminders, that add quickly to 1000 Gifts and more. Some longer, some shorter, many serious, yet others quite hilarious. Just get them down. Once you start, you will know why…

“Then [Ezra] told them, Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet drink, and send portions to him for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord. And be not grieved and depressed, for the joy of the Lord is your strength and stronghold.” (Nehemiah 8:10 AMP)

Sing it with me now…The joy of the Lord is my strength. Eat the fat and drink the sweet; send portions to them who are weak. The joy of the Lord is my strength!…Love that song!!!

The joy…oh the joy of the Lord is MY strength. No one can take my joy! Oh, say it again…NO ONE can take MY JOY!!!

Life happens, yes it really does, sometimes much to our dismay. It shields, blocks, impairs from seeing. But wait..where’s my list! Yes! I have my list! (Just keeping it real, my friend, keeping it real!) 🙂

And yet before the blink of an eye, the moment is gone, so the memory, and then life…so savor the experience in these moments. Yes, the experience, oft turned to process, the making of life, of memories, of character.

This experience alludes action…

Actions mean more than words.

The experience flashes vividly, visually, a picture…

A picture speaks a thousand words.

So, take pictures…with the digital era, the more the merrier! 🙂

Now, a living, breathing, daily joy-infusing breath of life, YOUR life, God-given, God-ordained.

“The LORD directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.” (Psalm 37:23 NLT)

Yes, God-ordered steps of a righteous man! Track those moments.

Hmmm…a little more mindful are we? Oh yes and AMEN!

Accountability…self checking…what am I choosing to SEE in my day? Furthermore, what am I choosing to DO WITH MY DAY? Now I’m in control…CREATING those moments from inception, as God leads and directs My Life Story!!!

Thus, the collision of ThanksLiving with the Project 365
