Jonathan

Hi. I am Jonathan. Daddy, Hubby, Writer, amongst other labels. A fish out of water, most of my life. Gradually finding my voice and being guided home by Grace and Love.

Love is a death sentence

This journey started with a strong sense of myself, a strong sense of my calling, my passion and desire for God, for meaning and for purpose. Alas, what I found was a death sentence!Little ‘me’, ‘my’, ‘I’ was denied and allowed to die. Like a ship that sets […]

Start where you are

There are no accidents nor coincidences in the universe. There is a design and purpose to the circumstances that currently surround you. There is an intelligence that informs the space you currently occupy. Have faith.Trust in the benevolent intelligence that guides and steers your path. God is at […]

Freedom calls

My cry is ‘Freedom!’My quest is re-Union! I refuse to be defined by the past.I will not be limited by circumstances.Fear and doubt will not have the last say. I refuse to journey back in time to past grievances, offences or perceived slights. I will spread my wings […]

Careful for nothing

The saying goes that the best things in life give themselves for free. They are not received through effort, striving or desire. We get the most out of life when we stop making demands of it. When we step into the flow of life, the currents and tides […]

This little light of mine

I was not disobedient to the heavenly vision. Acts 26:19 Walk true to the measure of light that you have been given.Work with what you have received. Grace and Providence will serve up the next, when you are ready. Don’t run with another’s dream, values or beliefs. Draw […]

Diversions and delays

Don’t worry. Don’t fret when life and circumstances beyond your control, divert you off course. Don’t lose sleep when compelled to take a U-turn. Trust in a benevolent and coherent Universe that holds the blueprint and works together for your ultimate good. Be flexible. Bend when you have […]

Finding your rhythm

Return to me, child. Return to your centre. Move at your own determined pace. March to the beat of your own inner pacemaker. Pick up your pace from the inside out; not outside in. Resist the temptation to give up your peace for anxious energy, in pursuit of […]

True peace

The natural mind wants all the facts and circumstances aligned perfectly before resting in peace. But as soon as the mind perceives a change to the situation …this transient peace evaporates! I am left exhausted by the many peaks and throughs of this transient, illusionary peace. I yearn […]

Faith to quit

Sometimes it takes faith to quit the race,to swim against the tide of coventional wisdom. Sometimes it takes faith to step off the pitch,to walk away from the game; and refuse to play by the old rules. Caught up in striving and trying to succeed. We work hard, […]

Life’s building block

I know this to be true … Whilst fear may motivate me to act ‘right’, only love will truly transform me. Nothing built on a foundation of fear truly lasts or bears fruit. Love is the eternal and foundational building block for ALL that endures. that includes me, […]

Unannounced guests

Understanding the nature of the relationship between me and my thoughts, has been very liberating indeed. NEGATIVE THOUGHTS,LIKE SOME GUESTS,DO MAKE UNANNOUNCED VISITS.BUT I DON’T HAVE TO ENTERTAIN THEM. Thoughts come barging in unannounced. They emerge and occur in my conscious mind. They feel very much like my […]

Reckless abandon

Love pursues with reckless abandonin his quest for your heart! GRACE is a Big Spender! when it comes to giving all to reawaken your love for her. God will not be denied!The Universe and everything in it … conspires and colludes to bring you back safely to rest […]

Mission impossible

Much effort and energy has been spent, trying to reform the ego.Much time has been spent, waiting on the ego to ‘get it’ I wanted ego to see and align with what I know to be true,I wanted ego to align with what I know to be real. […]

Resilience

Resilience is not about being strong-willed. Resilience is not about being stubborn. Resilience is to keep returning to your path, no matter how often you veer of course! JONATHAN – afishoutofwater.blog
