“Ostera” by Helena Nelson-Reed

For your consideration…….

I shouldn’t be but am surprised about today’s message. Albeit has come up several times this week with different people, I never got that it was a message for the blog until this morning.

We have had messages before about women not giving up and/or standing in their power. But today’s message is much much stronger. It is in fact a call to action not a suggestion or idea.

I was given this example; “How does anything work when its battery or power source is half empty?” So it is with the world. You see the results. Half of the world’s population, women, are ignored. They are discounted. If they have a vote, it usually does not carry equal weight. Thus we have our precious earth in its present state.

We have religions fighting. That is man’s work, not God’s. We have race and culture clashes. That is not Gods’ work. It is man’s. We have women throughout the world being abused and repressed. That is not God’s work. That is man’s.

Do we really believe that God created women only as birthing machines? Seriously, if he only wanted men to count, he would have designed them to have their own babies.

God created women as full and equal partners. He created the perfect counter weight to man. And he wants all women to stand up and seize control of their own power. Notice he does not want us to overpower men. He does not want us to wield our power as they have. He does not want us to reduce men. He wants us to balance out the world. He wants us to demonstrate what balanced partnerships look, feel and act like. Love is not weak. It is strong and he wants us to show what its strength can do.

Enough already. This is a new dimension. Any corporation, family, religion, country etc. that does not accept the full power of women, will not thrive…..maybe not even survive.

If this message sounds harsh, I apologize for the lack in writing skills. It is delivered to us with much love……. ….tough love….but complete love.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take……

-Meditate/pray…..feel your power, grasp it, lead with it.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths.

-Drink lots of water. Water cleanses and purifies. It brings you clarity.

-Do not bite your tongue. That does not mean we need to be argumentative. But we do need to always speak our truth from a kind and loving heart.

What made me smile yesterday…….

-A sleep in and relaxing morning.

-How bad I am at “Words with Friends”.

-My Alex having fun trying new things.

-Talking with Dianne. Yeah, she is on the mend.

-Housework…..when it was completed, of course. It is so tough for me to start, but I feel so good when it is done.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
