A Spiritual Life Apart

“You will call to me and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will search for me and when you search for me with all your heart, you will find me.” – (Jer 29)

 

Are you ready to live your spiritual life apart?

The spiritual life has two parts.

First, we discover the life of prayer and oneness with God.

We focus our mind and hearts on the hopes of this day, becoming spiritually fit, so we can move in the direction God wants us to go, and carry out His will.

Christ calls to us: “Seek me, love me, and find joy in me. Courage and joy will conquer all troubles; first things first. No perils can affright you, no discipline exhaust you.” (GC)

We go forth from our time of being in His presence, to move along the path.

The 2nd component of the spiritual life apart is how one is sent forth, through her/his interaction with others; those beings God places in our journey of becoming and knowing; those we love, those we tolerate and those we differ with. “Persevere. Can you hold on in my strength? Initiation precedes all real work and success for me.” (GC)

Are you ready to live a spiritual life apart with me; in the world and yet apart with me?

Test God

 

God says, “Prove me now herewith.”

Man is here to prove God and to bear witness to Christ’s truth.

One can only test God by transforming the image within from lack to plenty, and injustice to justice.

Shortcomings

Our Lenten journey has come to an end, which included a time of reflection, introspection, reconciliation and forgiveness with all those who have crossed our path on this highway called life.
Tonight, many Christians throughout the world will gather around a table to commemorate Jesus’ “Last Supper.”
On this blessed, Holy Thursday; “May we who gather around this table, be completely washed clean from our own shortcomings.”
May we treat one another with the same love and tolerance that Jesus had for His family and friends, who gathered with Him for the Passover meal in the upper room!

Are You Shaking and Breaking Spiritually?

When you look at what is going around you, in your nation, everything is symbolic in nature to her/his relationship with me.
Areas of the earth are shaking and breaking apart.
Look inside of yourselves. You are shaking; you are scared about the future.
Don’t you remember what I told you “Don’t worry about tomorrow?” Tomorrow will take care of itself.” Yet, you have not heeded my words and continue to worry for nothing.
The breaking up of the earth whether caused by action under the earth or the large wind, is a sign of your breaking up as a nation.
Once, you stood strong and proud as a people; you were proud to be part of America. Now, members of your nation have grown lackadaisical and misunderstand the messages of long ago.
If you look back in your history there was a time when you came together for the common good of all. You were excited to be a republic, a free nation.
Over the centuries, this has been lost, and the way of life you once held strong and true has gone to the wayside.
The water represents all the tears in heaven. I weep so much now, you cannot imagine.
Yes, there are dry areas as well. What is running dry in your spiritual life? Are there ways you can change it? Yes.
All the problems and natural disasters you see happening around you, are happening and will continue to happen until you begin to take back what the enemy has stolen from you.
The most important thing you have lost as a nation is your personal relationship with me.
This is my greatest sorrow.
Next, I watch how you treat one another.
This is not an ‘us’ or ‘them’ mentality to be embraced anymore; in order to move forward, one must have a ‘we’ mentality, truly caring for the nature and understanding of one’s brother or sister.
Each of you, as “Bearer’s of Light and followers of “The Way” will be required to step out and step up.
If you are already assisting others in your ministry, center or church then keep on doing what you are doing, always in my name.
If you don’t know what to do, pray and ask for my help. I am always listening because “I am always with you.”
The resources are there even during these hard economic times in your nation.
My level of abundance and source is ever lasting and does not run out.
Begin to tap into the higher things of life and you will see great things come to pass.
When you reach higher, I reach back. Remember the old time hymn, “Nearer My God to Thee?” I am nearer and closer than you could have ever imagined.
If you are in area that is cleaning up, do not lose hope, a new way will be made.
If you are in an area that has not been affected, be grateful for the space that surrounds you and take the time to care for it.
As it has been written, “there will be wars and rumors of wars, but this is not the end.”
This is not the end, but the beginning of find your way to ‘my way.’

A Heavenly Message 3/21/2011

A tide has been turned and the earth changes that have been written and spoken about are now in motion for all to see, feel and hear.
Some of the changes such as weather patterns, war and the uncertainty that looms in the air are difficult for many to grasp. Fear not!
These physical signs have been happening for some time, and the spiritual signs have been written for millennium!
What does all of this mean?
It means that man no longer has control over the things he/she thought they had dominion over.
As it was written, man (you and I) were appointed as caretakers of everything: “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have stewardship over all living things.”
How are we to care for ourselves and others?
Jesus summed it up this way, “The truth is, you must change your thinking and become like little children. If you don’t do this, you will never enter God’s kingdom. The greatest person in God’s kingdom is the one who makes himself humble like this child.”
It is hard to believe, but those who are bearers of the Light are called to embrace the Dawn of a New Day:

“Just as the plants awaken in the spring, so do we. It is a calling from deep within the soul, a transition. Plant the seeds of inspiration and hope. Put your ideas into action, stand tall and proud. This is your new dawn and new beginning.”
