"I want to hold you"
My little 2 year old - going on 5 has started this thing - she will come up to me and say " I want to hold you" this is all backwards...what she wants is to be held by me.
Can't help thinking that God must have the same look when we look to him and say "I want to hold you" I want my genie in a bottle to command and have things better - everything mine...but he knows our needs and wants. And we must look funny complaining we want to hold Him. But we do...we what to be able to do stuff - for the God that has it all. We what to be " look at me" , "I did this" but the reality is we are but deadman. Even the life we live is only by his will, and Law is given and completed by him...His Promise to us - Christ on the Cross For You!!!

Death - Fire and Life
As the days of Cold and Snow are apon us and I am not ready. Going out and digging through the snow for some wood to burn is common thing. The biggest comfort in this is it doesn't take much to heat the house for a day. 15 to 20 minutes will give enough wood to heat for the day and sometimes feels like hours.
Christ Died on the cross -a tree...now I saw up a tree and I burn it in Hell to keep my warm and Live. Snow melts and is water - Baptism, tree grow with water and light, Christ is the light of the world. Christ descended into Hell and rose again and ascended to Heaven - Right hand of the Father. My right hand does the cutting of the tree.
Adam should have chopped the tree and burned it and the serpent to keep back the temptation. But the tree itself was not bad - and the promise of Christ fulfillment of the law was made outside of time itself. We can tell Satan himself what you meant for Evil Jesus Christ meant for good of all.
So this is a bit of babbling...but putting down my thoughts....may have to revisit add put the words together more and connect the verses. Some of you Pastors out there may know the verses ... put them in the comments will update. Thanks.
As the time goes by....and we have a lot of different conversations about things - Cross related... after all that is where in begins and ends. There. At the Cross - On the Cross.... Think it was on Stop the White Noise with Jonathan and Meridith talked about Reading chapter by chapter John and Genises...because it shows Christ work in the Beginning.
