Today's declaration sounds like the opposite of an idiom that I've never really cared for. Maybe you've heard it: the devil is in the details. The devil wants us to trip over the details, but God will never let us fall. As a detail-oriented person, I'm glad to know that God is not only in the details, he also delights in the details. I'm sure, like me, you make the best choices based on the information you have. We can't see what lies ahead, and many of the details affecting our decisions are out of our control. But you can be sure that God will direct your steps when you ask him for directions. God knows exactly which paths to take. He may allow us to stumble, but he will never let us fall. He may guide us along a rocky path, where it's hard to get solid footing, but he will hold our hands as he leads us. Where do you want to be by this time next year? It's always a good idea to plan your steps to get from where you are now to where you want to be. God has promised to direct your steps, and he delights in every detail of how you will get from point A to point B. So, be sure to consult God about your plans for the coming year. You have so much available to you as a child of God. Even your tongue has power. I explore the power of the tongue more thoroughly in my book Longing to Belong. Pick up a copy today for you and a friend. I want to equip you with the tools you need to make godly choices for your life and your future. This week's scripture: Psalm 37:23-24

Pastor Jack Hibbs of Calvary Chapel Chino Hills recently shared some Bible verses that he encouraged us to proclaim in the coming year. I know this because my girlfriend sent me one of those verses, and it inspired today's declaration, which I love. God stands ready to lead you and I into this new year. Let's choose to follow him along the paths he sets before us. Why would anyone wander away from God's path when it drips with abundance? In my book Longing to Belong, I talk about the difference between having a scarcity mentality versus a mindset of abundance. This idea involves more than just looking at the glass as half full instead of half empty. A scarcity mentality informs us that there's only so much to go around. If I get more, you get less. But with God, you don't have to lose so I can gain! God's resources are unlimited. Jesus fed the multitudes with a few loaves of bread and some fish. Talk about dripping with abundance! If you are in relationship with God, you will not lack for any good things. Your heavenly Father has unlimited resources. One year ago, a friend with a great sense of humor sent me a bitmoji of herself walking away from the number 2020 in a dumpster fire. I saw the same bitmoji available to send this year, and in many ways, 2021 was an extension of the unwelcome circumstances that marked 2020 as a dumpster fire. How can we be sure that 2022 will be any better? How can we be sure that the new year will drip with abundance? We can believe and speak that good things are in store because God promises abundance, not scarcity. Jesus said that he came so that we could have life, and have it more abundantly. So, even if the new year ends up looking like another dumpster fire, stay on God's path for your life. It drips with abundance. This week's scripture: Psalm 65:9-13

If you are a follower of Jesus, my prayer is that you would more fully, faithfully, and fruitfully believe and behold Jesus as the Word of God. Be open to Jesus as the Word who speaks into every part of your life.If you are not a follower of Jesus yet, be open to the Word of God. Be open with your questions and doubts. But also be open to doubting your doubts and questioning your questions and the possibility that Jesus is the Word of God who has come to bring you out of darkness and into the light of his kingdom.Be open to the possibility that while there might be a leap ahead of you to follow Jesus, there is also a leap behind you toward disbelief.Sermon Notes: https://www.bible.com/events/4881575822.01.02

Today we explore the sacred threshold of endings and beginnings. We dive deeply into our vision and trust with the poem: The Truth About Gathering Joy  There is a story I will tell  about not compromising living a life of big love   trusting truth   this story is rooted in magic  beautiful but not always pretty moments down on the ground  wailing praying empty begging    do not be fooled these times are perhaps the (w)holiest    I will build a circle of sacred for you to embody the desire you are holding   this is the medicine for all of us now   all of us   now   the fire has already been lit many are waiting for us to join them there   wisdom keepers are pouring gifts through the dense mists of fear   you will hear how to love your passion  into creation taste the truth perched  on your lips   some of what you love will choose a new form you will let your sadness want you float in your blood like eager lanterns of hope   you will close your eyes and trust your hands know what to hold onto    and how to let go   you will let your desire council you  visit the place where longings live   often   your soul will make itself known in your body a new song will emerge from your bones   this is how you will know your own fierce story the only one you can live   so many of us making new stories from the ones already undone   sometimes  it's closer than you think   this is a story about deep love.   ~Wendy Candida Havlir Cherry, 2020   Holding hope and fear, joy, and sadness at the same time.   Working with trust and the ways your body knows what to do.    What will you hold onto from this year (and your entire life) and what will you let go of?   How will you be held?   A short guided meditation—flowing with the divinity and grace of your breath—available right here, right now, in the home of this moment.   The sudden uprising of yes in your inhale & the rest and letting go in the descent of your exhale—and the pause in between.   In the length of our longing, belonging arrives.   The Mistress of Longing comes to us as a dear friend and companion of deep love. She is hope and a reminder that we are never alone.   Moving into a deeper relationship with your life—and permission to (be)long. Imagine moving beneath what you perceive you long for and into the holiest and wisest doorways of your soul's true knowing—an oceanic love—longing is an ever widening expansion into true home and union with the sacred.   Life is a constant divine invitation—a divine hand reaching for you—how will you reach back? What parts of yourself will you step toward? What parts of yourself will you no longer reject but instead gather and embrace? With wild and holy abandon?   Wind & Water poem from my first book, The Reach is (W)holy.   As you move toward 2021, how are you holding death and life? And the idea that grace is infused in every moment, even when you feel dismantled?    Meeting ourselves and others from a place of compassion and messy alchemy.    Writing prompt: How am I wild AND holy? When have I felt wild and free, liberated, holy, truly myself? When have you chosen yourself regardless of what might be the result? What is true about you now? What are you willing to choose no matter what? How is life asking you to come out of the darkness and say yes to something new and into the light? What am I willing to no longer compromise?   May you know boundless blessings. Thank you for listening.    As always, YOU are sacred. This moment is ceremony. You do get to live your wildly naked truth. May it be so!    Big love & rose petals, Wendy

I pulled today's declaration from the Old Testament Bible verses that were used as lyrics in a 1960s tune called “Turn! Turn! Turn!” Can you name—not that tune, but those verses? (Answer: Ecclesiastes 3:1-8) With 2021 drawing to a close and 2022 waiting in the wings, ‘Tis the season to declare that seasons come and go by God's design. Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall, God is working out his purposes according to his calendar. Some seasons don't make sense. What good purpose could there possibly be in seasons of hatred or war? Why can't we always experience seasons of healing and building up? I'd much prefer seasons of laughter over tears. I definitely choose welcoming a baby into this world over releasing a dying loved one into the next world. But just as this week's declaration says, God perfectly times each season with purpose. My mom died the day after Christmas two years ago. I know now that the timing of her death was perfectly established by God to avoid the isolation and loneliness of Covid. To our joy and delight, our granddaughter—who closely resembles her great grandma—was born nine months after my mom died. That little granddaughter of mine was perfectly timed by God with purpose. I don't know what season you're in right now, but I do know God is working out his purposes according to his calendar of events for your life. I remember when my husband and I had to cut back the hours of a beloved employee. I'd prayed so hard for the Lord to give her another opportunity and he did! But instead of taking the full-time job I found for her, she decided to stay on part time with us until her retirement. She said, “At my age, the one thing you never have enough of is time.” She realized that she had all the material things she needed, so she didn't need the income of full-time employment. Part-time work gave her more of what she needed—time. To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven. God knows where you are and what you need. He will guide your every step in 2022 if you will let him lead you.

The Cloud of Longing: A New Translation and Eco-Aesthetic Study of Kalidasa's Meghaduta (Oxford UP, 2021) is a translation and full-length study of the great Sanskrit poet Kālidāsa's famed Meghadūta (literally: "The Cloud Messenger") with a focus on its interfacing of nature, feeling, figurative language, and mythic memory. While the Meghadūta has been translated a number of times, the last "almost academic" translation was published in 1976 (Leonard Nathan, The Transport of Love: The Meghadūta of Kālidāsa). This volume, however, is more than an Indological translation. It is a study of the text in light of both classical Indian and contemporary Western literary theory, and it is aimed at lovers of poetry and poetics and students of world literature. It seeks to widen the arena of literary and poetic studies to include classic works of Asian traditions. It also looks at the poem's imaginative portrayals of "nature" and "environment" from perspectives that have rarely been considered. Raj Balkaran is a scholar, educator, consultant, and life coach.

With Christmas Eve arriving the day after tomorrow, my guess (and hope) is that you've finished your Christmas shopping. If you over spent your budget, be encouraged by this week's declaration drawn from Isaiah 55:3, which says, “Pay attention and come closer to me, and hear, that your total being may flourish.” (TPT) The greatest gift we could ever receive is peace with God through his Son, Jesus Christ. So, if you're feeling strapped for cash, repeat this week's declaration with me now: I don't need money for my total being to flourish. Last week, I read Isaiah 9:6-7, which contains a prophetic announcement about the birth of Jesus that begins like this: “For unto us a child is born.” Isaiah then promises the child will “reign on David's throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever.” The verses I read today were written by the same prophet. And, just as Isaiah spoke on God's behalf about the birth of our Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace, Isaiah also spoke for God when he wrote the verses that I read this week. God invites us to “Come to the refreshing waters and drink. Even if you have no money, come… Yes, come and buy all the wine and milk you desire—it won't cost a thing.” I stopped short of reading Isaiah 55:6, which says, “Seek the Lord while he may be found; call on him while he is near.” (NIV) Jesus is near! He is in the beauty of the music and serenity of the manger scenes. He is in the love we share as we exchange gifts and the hope we receive through faith in God. Nothing compares to the indescribable gift of God's grace, which he gave freely so that we could have abundant life now and forever. So, come all ye faithful! Come and worship. Come to the refreshing waters and drink—it won't cost a thing. This week's scripture: Isaiah 55:1-3   Discover the healing power of Psalm 139 in my book, Longing to Belong: Discovering the Joy of Acceptance.

Today, we're unwrapping the story of Anna, the prophetess in Luke's Gospel. She has a special place in God's story of redemption, and she serves as a representative for all of us in seasons of waiting and longing. Widowed for 84 years, a woman of modest means, and from an exiled people group, we see God's favor and grace shine through her life. Perhaps you feel disqualified from God's grace. Or you're struggling to keep sight of Jesus in a season of unmet longing. Anna's story will remind you that God's redemption is on offer for everyone. I hope her story finds and refreshes your soul today amid the craziness of this and every season. If you're longing and waiting in the midst of hardship, allow Anna to be a reminder of what to do when you wait. And more importantly, who to trust in the waiting.

On a rainy African day, we flew in a small plane from the city of Monrovia, Liberia, to a small airstrip in the northern part of the country. This ninety- minute flight saved us two days of travel on muddy, washed-out roads. The most amazing part was rising above the rain clouds and emerging into the glorious light of the sun. From underneath the clouds, it was all dark, rainy, and gloomy—the belly of the storm. Do you ever experience life like this? A gloomy underside where all seems dull, dreary, and hopeless? You might know the sun is always shining...somewhere above the clouds. But have you ever witnessed it with your own eyes? It's one thing to know it intellectually, another to see it firsthand. When Simeon took the baby Jesus in his arms, He experienced the light of God firsthand. Simeon had been “eagerly waiting for the Messiah to come and rescue Israel” (Luke 2:25). God led him to Jesus and gave him these amazing words to proclaim: “...I have seen your salvation, which you have prepared for all people. He is a light to reveal God to the nations, and he is the glory of your people Israel!” (Luke 2:30-32). Like rising above the clouds in an airplane, Simeon, in his old age, finally saw God's promised Savior with his own eyes. Light has come into this dark world, and His name is Jesus. Not just that day long ago when the Savior was born, but every day since then, Jesus is the Light of the World. Yes, even today! No matter how hopeless it may seem under the belly of the storm you are going through, Jesus is the ever-present light over it all. • Daniel Dore • Is there something you have been waiting for? Longing to see with your own eyes? • What promise did God give to Simeon? What promise does Jesus give to His followers? • Jesus came to rescue us, and He is more powerful than any darkness. What darkness are you experiencing today? Jesus understands, and He is inviting you to come to Him. Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won't have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.” John 8:12 (NLT)

This week at Invisibilia, we're bringing you an episode from NPR's Throughline about an emotion you might be feeling a lot these days: nostalgia. Longing for 'simpler times' and 'better days', many of us have been turning to 90s dance playlists, TV sitcoms, and sports highlights. We're looking for comfort and safety in the permanence of the past, or at least, what we think the past was. But, when it first appeared, nostalgia itself wasn't considered a feeling; it was a deadly disease. This episode traces the history of nostalgia from its origins as an illness to the dominating emotion of our time.
