There is a power that defies description behind discovering and ferreting out
Your unwanted thoughts.
Petty jealousies will no longer lurk, Tormenting you with fear and sadness,
When brutal honesty takes over.
It’s not snakes ‘n snails
And puppy dog tails
But unchecked, unwanted phobias
That rob us of sweet tranquility.
God can use them – every one of them –
And reveal to us how amazing
Is our present Self-consciousness,
Our having attained awareness
Of our now palpitating, eternal life.
When you put out hatred into the atmosphere, you are feeding the airwaves surliness, contempt, ugliness, lovelessness, sarcasm, cruelty. Can’t you see that you’re fanning the flames of hate and war?
So, should you just sit back and ignore what’s going on? NO, YOU SHOULDN’T JUST SIT BACK AND IGNORE WHAT’S GOING ON !!! . You should heal it!
Your God is huge! He’s pure Love. But can you even see that anymore? I know rolling over all the hurts and hates, fears and smears is far more titillating, but REALLY!! don’t you have something better to do?
If disease had a law, i.e., given from God, no one – not you nor me nor Jesus could stop it. Omigosh! We’d have an immortal disease! Whatever could we do??
But we don’t, it isn’t and God wouldn’t!!!!
So, where do we go from here?
If you’re looking back and looking down and looking into the material realm, then YOU need to go back to Square One: God is all-in-all and that includes you. He never created anything unlike Himself. He created everything OUT OF Himself. Keep going. Keep going!
As for me, I’ll bask in the understanding that God is living … AS … me. I’m about 45 minutes ahead of you, Lol. <3
ANCHOR YOUR THOUGHTS IN GOD !!! When you “see” an unwanted, doubtful, fearful, unloving thought, remember
……. GOD’S WORK IS DONE !!
……. HIS KINGDOM IS COME !!
……. NOTHING ELSE EXISTS !!
……. IN REALM OF THE REAL !!
Have you died to this world? I mean really given it up? Have you met with some persecution and wondered why it was nearly painless? Have things been shifting in strange ways, only to settle down in remarkable harmony? That’s the Holy Spirit loving you!
“Be not afraid: it is I”, said Jesus. We have but to rest in the infinitude of His be-ing, bouyed up with omnipotent Spirit. The world can shriek and sulk, but you are unmoved, unimpressed, undaunted and free – such is Papa’s love for his darling child: you.
DOES FEAR RULE IN YOUR LIFE ?
WHEN YOU KNOW THAT YOU’RE RIGHT WITH GOD, AND YOU KNOW THAT WHAT YOU WANT TO DO IS ALSO RIGHT WITH GOD •BUT• YOU FEEL AFRAID … GO AHEAD AND DO IT !! . DO IT AFRAID !!!!! . [DOING SO WILL LEAD YOU RIGHT •OUT• OF FEAR !!]
Psalm 27:1 KJV
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
Psalm 27:1 AMP
THE LORD is my Light and my Salvation–whom shall I fear or dread? The Lord is the Refuge and Stronghold of my life–of whom shall I be afraid?
John Lennon once said that his song Imagine wasn’t a denial of God or heaven, but an invitation to quit thinking with division.
Politics and religion pit us against each other instead of living from the fundamental truth that separation is a lie.
Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today… Aha-ah…
Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace..
Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world… You…
You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one
“Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation—”
Colossians 1:21-22 NIV
Yesterday (true story) I was up on a stool
Rearranging about thirty books
On a single recently painted shelf
– C – R – A – C – K – !!!
The shelf broke
Knocked me off the stool
Books came tumbling down
I came tumbling down
Inches away from a plate-glass table
Books on top of me
Shelf on top of me
My first coherent thought was
“I’m not hurt!”
How’s that possible?
“Oh, it be!” said God.
My head had landed, like I said,
Inches from the glass table!!!
There had been too many books
For that kind of shelf.
(I was so glad it happened to me
And not to a guest.)
All through the day I kept hearing
“I’m not hurt! I’m not hurt!”
Then God told me to examine the evidence:
Three nasty bruises and one scrape
But zero pain and
If you’re wanting to do the thing
That’s most nearly right
And your habit is to start out
With God front and center
The decision you need,
Feels a wee bit scary,
All that remains is to push forward
Right now, and trust.
I think there are a lot of us out here: rescuers, wanting to love and bless people right into the kingdom! But we’ve got to heed Chuck Crisco’s wisdom and honor the God-given vehicle that will bring him all the way in. Lots of love, lots of prayer and lots of letting go on both our parts will bring the trust that is required:
“Love doesn’t mean we are required to fix others. Being a “rescuer” often short circuits the learning that other person cannot get any other way or bypasses an insight of wisdom that can only come when they get it from God.
“Lift others burdens that are in excess, but don’t feel obligated to save the world. There is already a Savior of the world and its not you.”
