Play Me Like a Violin

I read this post yesterday, and I immediately recognized how powerful it was. It just keeps niggling at me though. I must have emotional and/or spiritual work that I need to address with respect to this concept. I am going to let it simmer, but I wanted to share it with you in case you missed it.

Tremendous thanks to Wendy Megget for this post:

  1. Thank you so much for sharing my post, Julie. Ironically, the same situation that triggered the need to write this post was happening for the second time when you posted this link. The situation does not actually relate to being taken advantage, but is a state of deep loss and fear, and so the emotion that went into this post was not entirely related to it’s content. Perhaps there is something that I still need to be working on here too? πŸ˜ƒ I didn’t know it was okay to do what you have done here by linking to my post, so this is great, as I do come across other posts that really resonate too, and I’ve wanted to share them.

    1. Best of luck navigating an emotionally charged situation. I will send you good vibes for a perfect resolution. It just occurred to me that I probably should have asked your permission before I blasted out your post, my apologies. I will do so in the future. πŸ™‚

      1. Thanks, but no, it was a lovely surprise and so very flattering. I think we are good enough blog-buddies to know that reblogging each other’s posts is good for both of us 😁 You’ve sent a lot of new traffic my way, given that post a big boost, scored me some good followers and i’ve found some new blogs to follow too 😁 I’m so grateful. Share as many of my posts as you like πŸ’ž

  2. Powerful and so much depth to this message…

    As I read this message the Lord led me to this passage…

    “And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit. 51 Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split, 52 and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; 53 and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many….Matthew 27:50-53

    I remember the Lord speaking to me and teaching me through this passage that the veil being torn had a lot to do with how we now have access to His revelation. When the people once went through priests, we now go right to the throne of God through Jesus. But here’s where this message of play-me-like-a-violin comes into play.

    As we develop a relationship with the Lord, we begin to see people and situations for who and what they are. The Lord never intended for us to live life in the blind of not knowing who and what we’re subjected to, but in order for us to truly see, we must have a relationship with Him. When our relationship with the Lord begins to blossom and grow, He no longer allows us to be taken advantage of, or β€œplayed!”

    For those people close to us, who know exactly what buttons to push, He reveals their tactics and we’re no longer victims of their games. As for those people who WERE simply mentally stronger, they no longer have power over us, because the Lord gives us His strength.

    With that being said, when Jesus cried out and the veil to the temple was torn, we had access to His power and our vision of people and situations become clear….

    “There comes a point in these situations where the veils part and you can see it for what it really is:” NO LONGER are you willing to be played like a violin and NO LONGER are you going to let people do it.

    “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind…2 Timothy 1:7

    BLESSINGS to all of you!!
