Lent: Word Day 35

Clary Sage is known as the oil of clarity and vision. Take a few drops in the palm of your hand and inhale. Massage any remaining oil on the bottoms of your feet on your temples. Read Matthew 2:1-12 and imagine these wise learned men. They have been studying the starts and the times and all the ancient scriptures of different cultures. These were not men from Israel, but they saw the signs and the science and the words written of a God who was playing it all into perfect unity .... and they followed him. So today, move your body in a way that honors that. Movement and surrender. Maybe shifting the way you think a little. And ask God to show himself to you. To speak to you and meet you where you are and show you how maybe your thinking has blocked your ability to heart him speak and see him move. 

God does not move and act the way we think he should. Isaiah 55: 8-9 says his ways are higher than our ways and his thoughts are higher than our thoughts. A true scholar understands that there are things they do not know and things still yet to be learned.
