What we ever receive is only a mere refraction of what The Giver has to offer~ We can, however, enlarge our capacity to receive more of the offering. We must, first, expand our vision by allowing in more light and then reposition ourselves past our own zenith so we can see beyond the horizon. Then, and only then, are we enabled to reflect what we have received. ~ag(2015-0220)

“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above,
and comes down from the Father of lights,
with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning*.”
“But all things,
when their true quality is seen,
are made clear by the light:
because everything which is made clear is light.”
“If you are filled with light,
with no dark corners,
then your whole life will be radiant,…”
~Luke 11:36, NLT
“Before time itself was measured, the Voice was speaking.
The Voice was and is God.
…His speech shaped the entire cosmos.
Immersed in the practice of creating, all things that exist were birthed in Him.
His breath filled all things with a living, breathing light…”
“The unspiritual self… can’t receive the gifts of God’s Spirit.
There’s no capacity for them. They seem like so much silliness.
Spirit can be known only by spirit–
God’s Spirit and our spirits in open communion.”

*NetBible Note- Jms.1:17 “variation or shadow of turning” (referring to the motions of heavenly bodies causing variations of light and darkness).
