Spiritual Sabbatical


Spiritual Sabbatical

This week God called me to give it completely to Him, so I’m unplugging from the routine (in case I’m slow on approving and responding to comments). It’s a time of celebration, a feast, of delighting in Him as He transitions/transforms me by His hand.  There is much going on spiritually, I pray you diligently seek Him this week above all else for He has the words of life.


Come Walk with Me

Take a break, come walk with Me
To feast from the living tree

Your spirit is ready to bloom
To destroy darkness and doom

It’s been a long journey of strife
Letting go of death and embracing life

Awakening as from a hazy dream
To become for all a gushing stream

All things are formed from a new cast
First fruits of love created to last

Steal away with Me into the stillness
In faith you’ll see manifestation of My fullness

This is My desire, let it be
Have no doubt, come walk with Me

My passion is cultivating a deep relationship with God and helping others to do the same. I LOVE sharing with others insights that God has taught me and hearing what God has taught them... thus my blog, Stirring the Deep. My focus is on a relationship, not a religion. Life is in the relationship. I believe in a balance and unity of body, mind and spirit. I feel it's important to nurture all three for they all affect each other. I try to live in the present, where the Holy Spirit is. And I try to do all with the motive of love. I've come to believe life is a journey and not a destination. It isn't about perfection, is it about growth.

    • Hi Lorie – thank you for your blessing. It was an amazing week. Seek Him with all your heart, to know Him in truth and letting go of ALL images this world has created. In coming to Him in truth, our souls are resurrected to new life in every possible way.

  5. Hi, Rachel. It’s been a while, but I just thought of your work and thought I would come catch up on what you’ve been sharing lately. This is a beautiful poem. Love these lines, “Your spirit is ready to bloom
    To destroy darkness and doom.”

    Lots of questions, changes, working, and reworking through ideas/lies/habits/decisions have been going on in my mind and heart lately. I am glad you are experiencing and sharing the awakening only the Spirit of God can make happen; would always appreciate your prayers in my journey of seeking God – His Truth, His Love, His Spirit.


  6. You write beautiful poetry. Just a thought but maybe a book in the future? something to pray about? God Bless!
