The Quiet…

The quiet separates us from the noise of outer influences, teaching us to hear/trust the voice of God. 

The quiet is where we can find strength, refuge, presence, peace of mind, and needed restoration.

At other times the quiet strips us, leaving us void and empty. Sheer vulnerability, an essential rites of passage for those willing to forsake all…everything that we thought we knew, stripped. Such is a place of necessity…one of conscious surrender, not one of hopelessness. 

The quiet…transitioning within God’s gracious hand of mercy, “Dying and behold, we live.” See (2 Corinthians 10:1-6)

“Be still and know that I am God…” (Psalm 46:10). 

We are wise to engage these infused encounters from the Holy Spirit. ~Life Through The Storm

Plumb Lines…

Some of the “message seeds” I was given have set dormant for 30 plus years in journals, legal pads, word documents and scraps of all sort of paper. 

After sharing a few of them with a dear friend, he reminded me that the “Cemetery is the richest place on earth; full of treasures in earthen vessel, and if I did not sow these “message seeds” soon that I would inadvertently add to the cemetery’s vast estate.” 

His words became a tipping point for “Plumb Lines.”   -Jerry Mannery 

Love Alone…

Love alone is the covering, the antidote that assists us in accepting (not condoning) the “not so nice traits about being human”. 

Here’s my experience, begin and end with love. Love teaches us to respect and honor the sacredness of becoming…the transformation from one state of being to another. ~Storm
