Chapter #2 In the Beginning, God
"Barrel and Gondola cars."
Step in by faith: I wait for Him to prepare the communion "elements." In the spirit!
My perceptions: You are welcome to join us. I'll share an anchor for you to grab if that'll help. Then He will paint a personal place for you. It's entirely OK if the scene takes on changes and looks different from mine. Trust Jesus in you.
I'm sitting with Jesus, high on a mountain. You can see mountains cascading behind mountains as the range goes forth. The lush hillside is rolling green making me feel like I imagine Ireland is. I have yet to discover. He, Jesus - hands me/you a Twinkie.(represents His body) (I smirk bending my cheek and only one dimple. He's so not super spiritual.)
Back to the Twinkie: when He passes it to me, Jesus hangs on to His portion, and the Twinkie rips between our grasp. The filling is exposed. I hear Him saying:
"Brokenness was always supposed to reveal the cream center." My confessions; Jesus, I hand you debris that I have loaded onto my life, like the barrel and gondola car across the wilderness. I was never supposed to carry it. Forgive me for choosing to ride the rails across a desert of disobedience. I exchange it for the true riches and divine resources that I receive by faith in the mystery of this communion. I receive everything You, Father has already "thought" of and placed into this divine manna for my journey.
Well, you know what you do with a Twinkie? You suck out the cream. I know; super spiritual.
The cup: Jesus hands me one of those fangled hydro flask water bottles, smiles and says:
"I prepared this a long time ago; it's still cold and refreshing."
I thank Him for His body and blood... in me, changing and transforming me into His likeness.

I wrote a ! on page 35 because you summed it up so well: all of man's (false) doctrines in regard to "submission" and men and women's roles in the church in effect make God a respecter of persons....which He (thankfully!) is not!

I'm Kristen Wambach
I'm all grown up (I think?) Along my journey of searching for answers, I found them. I went from spiritual blindness to OMG! With a driving niche as an entrepreneur. I love hanging out with our four sons, riding with my husband on his Harley, and creating all things hospitality. My mission? To help others see "beyond" and own their awesomeness within!
