I continue to be impressed with the level of support from you intercessors. From past experience, there is a lot of enthusiasm at first for any project, then intercession fatigue sets in and the numbers quickly dwindle. We have had only about a 15% drop off from the first week which is amazing.
I am also very excited about the reports from some of you that these light prayers are bringing benefit to your lives as well. Keep on sharing the fun.
The sundry reports of how you found SLG to begin with have been fascinating and loads of fun. Thanks for sharing. I can only imagine how much fun the angels have had this week as a result of your prayers for more invasive connections.
On the sales front, income is finally back up to what is normal for us at this time of year. We continue, however, to have 90% of our income from new people which is a great indicator of God moving in a different group of people as He had indicated to us back in December.
We started to do some advertising on the web a couple of weeks ago and those are certainly not being seen yet, so we wonder about that. It might just be that it takes time, or it might need a push from you. Your call.
Two items of good news on the “see” side of the equation.
First is that I have been aching for a long time to put blessings to music. I find it very grating when people grab some music off the shelf and slap it onto one of our blessings with no relevance whatsoever. It is like watching a baseball game while listening to a basketball game. Quite jarring for me.
The way the old hymns were written was someone writing the lyrics with a specific meter of poetry. Then a musician would come along and write music that matched the poetry and you had a classic hymn that would last for centuries.
I have pondered doing that, but the pondering only lasted seconds. I am too much of a free spirit to write out a blessing ahead of time and hammer the living thing into a form and format that is easy for the musician to sync to.
So that leaves me with the hardest and the best option which is to do an unrehearsed, live recording of a real blessing, face to face with a big spirited person who could receive it with intensity, and have musicians playing unrehearsed music that flows with the blessing, through the choreography of the Holy Spirit.
I have approached a handful of people over the years, but there has always been a misfire. Still the idea has not left.
On Wednesday of this week, I had a keen sense that the time was ripe for me to begin blessing the three musicians and the sound tech we need, even though I don’t know who they are. I am quite comfortable with God’s ability to get prayer requests applied to the right target. So, Thursday at our team meeting, we blessed those four really well, and will continue to do so.
Interestingly, on Thursday a name popped up in a very unexpected place of one of the three musicians who seems to have the spiritual giftings we need for this. I have asked a mutual friend to float the idea by her to see how she feels about it.
This is far from a done deal, but it sure would be special if finally we could assemble the team to do this.
The other big seeing moment this week came on Tuesday. I was minding my own business, grinding away on e-mails on the road, before the day’s activities started.
Out of nowhere, the heart project popped up on the radar. I have been a bit stuck there trying to figure out the core of the fractal of four. On the surface it seems to be 2 + 2, but that was not fitting quite right. In November, some things shifted causing me to feel it is 3 + 1: the Holy Trinity plus the Kingdom of God.
A number of markers pointed that direction but not solidly enough to build on, so I have been circling around and around the concept, trying to break the impasse.
Suddenly on Tuesday morning, the Holy Spirit prompted me to consider DNA and the fact that it was composed of four amino acids. That shouted. This is a very seminal and simple picture of the fractal of four.
Again, on the surface they appear to be 2 + 2 as the A, C, G, T each pair up in DNA. However, in RNA, the U is substituted for T, so you have the constant of A, C, G in both DNA and RNA but a different fourth amino acid in each: 3 + 1.
I don’t have time to study this for another week, since I have to really put my nose to the grindstone with Project N, but I am quite sure that using the concept of these four (five) amino acids, I will be able, before the end of the month, to definitively define the fractal of four, and possibly even identify the mother fractal.
So it is frustration not to be able to drop everything and bear down on the research, but it is exhilarating to have the perfect vein of ore to mine.
Awesome job team.
Only two big moments this week, but each of them might have implications for decades to come.
Thanks so much for doing the heavy lifting for us here.
