At the beginning of 2014, I removed all my blog posts, going back to 2008. I desired everything in my life, including my writing, to reflect the transforming soul condition I was undergoing. During the prior two years, I intensely and soulfully transitioned into knowing our Creator’s love in a way that I hadn’t before. This divine love reframed every aspect of my life. In response to this pivotal change in my soul’s understanding and awareness, I desired for all my postings to reflect this budding perspective of divine love, so I took down the ones previous to this profound shift occurring within me and in my life.

This shift changed how I interpreted everything around me and that obviously influenced my writing. Our Creator’s divine love is superior to everything in all its beauty and harmony, and I wanted to solely express its reflection, even though I was a neophyte to its likeness. I desired all my expressions, including my writing, to flow from this expanding and developing perspective, because I only wanted to give to others from this place.

Over the past year as the awareness and understanding of this divine love continued to grow, I’ve come to the realization that it is important to honor my entire journey because I wouldn’t be where I am without every single step I’ve taken. In 2001, I started diligently seeking truth in the most honest and sincere way I knew how and it led me to this incredible love. As truth builds so does the love it expresses. The steps prior lead to the steps afterward, and I’ve learned to honor them all. So, I’m putting those posts back up.

Every time I sat down to write, I trusted my divine Father’s hand to guide my hand from where I was at spiritually, and I still do. I couldn’t write without this consuming trust. Each time, I experienced his faithfulness, guidance and counsel. I learned and grew. For me, it was really his and my posts, not just mine. He was teaching and I was listening. He began teaching me where I was at spiritually, and what I could receive given my spiritual understanding and maturity. With each lesson, I gently progressed toward the light of his divine love. And to honor how he faithfully led me, I’m putting those posts back up.

Though we are all connected and are moving toward a similar space in divine love, we each learn in different ways. We each learn different details from our varying perspectives. We each have our own journey, and on this blog I’ve shared significant aspects of the mine as I’ve walked it with my divine Father, who I’ve gotten to know along the way. When we possess a sincere desire to explore and know the realm of truth and love, we are never walking alone.

As I’ve learned to honor my unique and individual pathways into his love, I’ve learned to honor everyone’s. It is my current understanding that the journey for each one of us is to move ever deeper in the awareness and power of his eternal divine love, for then we know the true God. And we not only know him, but we are also able to unite to him in love through his love. We each are unique in how our pathways play out because they are an integral part of shaping our individuality and purpose. Our Creator, who is faithful, will lead each one of his children, whom he loves, into his truth and love, thus into him, our beginning and end. This is the circle of life.

This journey through this dark and blinding wilderness serves many and varied purposes. I’ve learned to honor every step for all it has taught me, for where it has brought me, and continues to bring me. I’m grateful for it all.

Removing the posts for a time was a necessary part of my journey, and now putting them back up is just as necessary. The further we progress along our spiritual path into truth and love, the more we see our lives have been perfectly imperfect that we might dwell in our Creator’s perfection.

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.

  1. When I first came across your blog it was before you took the ones you are referencing down. Growing in God is a progressive way as we move from the natural to the spiritual and although I believe I understand the reason for you taking them down it is a most humble and courageous thing for you to display your weaknesses ( your words not mine) for all to see your progress from negative to positive. This is truly how we grow and although as we have shared in the past we do not see all things alike as far as knowledge and how we see the knowledge we have from the same perspective. What I did see and what Imsaw we have in common is the goal of one day being found in our Father’s likeness through the example of Jesus Christ.

    Not all have the understanding that there are more important things than the law, the knowledge of the law, and it’s ritualistic do’s and don’ts. I say this because the law was not written for a right seeking or a righteous person, it was written for law breakers. We must understand that it is within our hearts and minds where we do find the truths of God for that is the only place we will find Him. For those under the law they see God only in the law in outward words and actions. It is the humbleness in your spirit that caught my attention in the writings I saw in the beginning (and these are th ones you took down) and even though you wanted to remove them for the growth that you grew “to” I understand you for putting them back up, flaws and all. They give strength to those who can also see where one can be and where one can grow to…

    Even though I understand the reservations in our own dialogue, more importantly I see Christ, the bond that binds and you as well as I know it has nothing to do with agreeing on superficial knowledge, it runs much deeper in the substance of the spirit….which there is “no law”.

    It is nice to share these truths…it would be nice to see these truths and dialogue expand into like minds as we share what is…with all others.

    I really appreciate all that you write, do and say…warts and all 🙂

    • God’s not playing games
      with you.
      He knows what’s going on.
      He knows if it’s going to be
      deep or not.
      He knows what reservations
      you have, and how you’ve
      treated people.

    • Thank you for all your kind words Sonny. It’s been an interesting process of going back and reading some of my old posts. Truth certainly builds. As we seek, we see ever more clearly .. and how much there is to learn.

  2. You know, the old post I went back and read ( some I missed before) are just as refreshing as the new ones, for the messages are current and apply. It is by one another’s fruit we know the other. Fruit is the measure of love we have for the other…if our fruit is not yet mature…it is the intent of the harvest we see…”afar off” never the less we see…and desire.

  3. Wow! You see it! Even the bible has kept ones mistakes for the contrast for others. True honor. No fear you are amazing! One. One perfect moment.. kindly a reflection of us traVis ;)

  4. You are coming into the fullness.
    So much of what you once held so tightly will finally be released.
    No regrets, though.
    Understanding? Yes.. More than you’ve known before.
    Living? More than you’ve ever known. Whatever that means, haha…
