We are "Not Just" who we seem to be on this Earthly plane, but so much more. We are ALL children of a loving God who is calling us home to Love. This blog is dedicated to those of us on that journey together…
Time, time, it’s a funny thing. We want more of it and yet we want it to hurry up! We often want to rewind it yet we yearn also for a later date to come. Time passes no matter our efforts or denial. Time is a factor in this life and will keep going and going and going no matter what.
At the end of time there is: The End. All seasons must pass as goes the rhythm of life. No sense in holding on or grasping to what was… it is gone and now contains a new reality, and a new hope.
The End. So final, yet so full of promise! For there never is an end that does not follow closely behind with a new beginning! This beginning when embraced brings us closer to love.
If we look towards God we will be saved from the distractions of the world and the evil that wants to consume us. When we turn towards God we see God’s arms are open and ready to embrace us with total acceptance and love! We are redeemed by the transformative power of God.
God is my redeemer… may I continue to be redeemed every day of my life!
Women of Faith Conference came to Indianapolis this week-end and I had the wonderful opportunity to go! We sang together, prayed together, and God spoke to each of us in a way only God can!
Get ready for a new wave of blog posts that share some of the things God revealed to me during this Spirit infused week-end! I introduced myself (and my blog) to a few ladies during the lunch break and hope some of them come visit us here! 😊
Thank you God for wonderful week-ends such as this that bless so many women of Faith!
Pain offers us a choice. One choice leads to life and light and the other to suffering and death. The choice, of course, is ours.
Pain absolutely can destroy us if we let it. With the fuel of our pain we can perpetuate it’s destruction. Each of us know folks who have let pain destroy their lives and ruin the lives of those they love or who randomly cross their path. This is so tragic. It does not have to be so.
It is my hope that I always remember this myself. Pain is an invitation for us to ask for help from our Earthy family as well as from those beyond the veil, including God Himself. Unless we look outside for help and look beyond our pain, it can and will destroy us.
There are those who survive unbelievable circumstances and suffering. Without exception these folks open up their lives to others for healing and hope. They are seekers seeking solutions, remedies and healing. Actively looking outward from their pain they can see the miracles that appear in their path and embrace them!
From addicts in 12-step groups to grieving mothers who are a part of support groups, those in pain often find each other and together can pull each other through. Together with the power of love those who suffer pain can a live life more abundantly.
(This post was inspired by a response to another comment on my blog.)
Love is the eternal ideal. To move towards Love is to walk on our purpose’s path. Love’s perfection may not ever be achieved in this life yet it continues to be the ideal focus of our attentions.
Pure and perfect Love is full of light and life and truth and all good things. We all become our best as we chose to travel on love’s path towards Love’s perfection. On this path we will find our peace, our healing and our hope.
The world would be a much better place if we didn’t get frustrated with others whose weaknesses are our strengths and envious of those whose strengths are our weaknesses.
Why must we judge each other so? It is a known fact that not one of us is perfect and yet we moan and complain when confronted with the imperfections of others! We might all be happier if we come to terms with the truth that each of us are broken and imperfect.
Ironically however, we are equally upset if we perceive that others possess characteristics that we ourselves desire yet do not have! Jealousy sneaks into our hearts and robs us of peace. We feel threatened and less valuable when faced with the positive qualities of others we might lack. We feel like ‘less’ because others appear to have ‘more’.
A better world begins when we remember that every single one of us has special gifts and a unique purpose. My strength may fulfill your weakness as your strength compensates for my lack. When we combine our own strengths and our gifts with those of others this is how we accomplish great things!
These great things cannot be achieved if we use our energies for envy and complaints. The world would indeed be a much better place if we accepted each other more and criticized each other less. By building each other up through encouragement, patience and forgiveness the world will become the better place we dream of and the one God Himself desires for us!
