                             Today's Thoughts

Where can I go from your Spirit?
    Where can I flee from your presence?

If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
    if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.

If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
    if I settle on the far side of the sea,

10 

even there your hand will guide me,
    your right hand will hold me fast.

11 

If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me
    and the light become night around me,”

12 

even the darkness will not be dark to you;
    the night will shine like the day,

    for darkness is as light to you.

Psalm 139

 

 Trust the Energy you know as Love, that Trust will lead to inner peace which is the path to Truth.  Don’t try and define what that Truth is, the Trust will define it for you.

 

4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

 8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.  Philippians 4



It’s Christmas Eve….I woke up last night and was wide awake at 3:00 AM.  I began to pray and God asked me why was Jesus born to Earth....



1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome[a] it.  John 1

As I was praying I asked God if I was expecting to much from Him, God's response was, "you're not expecting enough from me".

            Unimaginable Power Yet Unimaginable Humility

  As I read and prayed this morning, it struck me that even though I talk with
Jesus and believe in him to be the only human to ever be totally at one with God,
I questioned whether I truly give him the credit he deserves. 
As I prayed I began talking with Jesus about this and I made the statement to
 him that I don’t think I fully understand all that he did for us, and I should try and
give him a great deal more respect.  His answer was “it is not I who deserves the
 respect but it is God, I have only come to teach not to be”, then he explained
something that more clearly brings to light the magnitude of how incredible God is,
Jesus made this statement. “God is the most powerful force in the Universe and yet
God is also the most humble being in the Universe as well”.  Think about that as you
live your life, you can walk with confidence and the strength of God with you, but if
God in all his power is humble what should you be.

 

 



If one does not ask, then how can one accept?   God...November 8 2011

           I strengthen your weaknesses and

          make your strengths stronger   God...March 28, 2011


It is not how far you travel; it is how purposely you travel the distance you go. Jesus, May 7 2011

"Steve, I have always been with you, but before I was protecting you, now I am guiding you."


The intersection of the Spiritual and the Physical is in the TRUSTING of GOD, total trust says you don't just know GOD is, but you have the confidence that GOD is with you in all aspects of your life.

We are not just here for you, we are here to be WITH you.    
Open your soul to the light and let it come in so that you live in unison with God's Energy
not apart from it.    "God and Jesus" 3/29/10

When you pray for something, do you pray that God will do it for you, or with you?

"But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God."[   
John 3:21


______

  Don’t view the World as to what you believe it to be,  look at it as to what it might become

 

I am not sure of the answer to this question, but if you have been an actively spiritual person all your life, do you
eventually take that spirituality for granted, unlike the days when you struggled just to understand that there is a God
and that God is present in our everyday lives?

“There is always something I need to do and some place I need to be, but when I am with
someone who is hurting, there is only one place that I need to be.”  Jesus 9-1-06

 

Caring for others, as in really caring for others was what God talked to me about yesterday
as the way to experience oneness with God and open my soul so God’s loving Energy can
flow through me .  It was clear that I need to sincerely care for all that I meet and what that
means is not only caring that someone is hurting and needs my help but rejoicing, really
rejoicing when someone has reason to be happy.

You can’t earn God’s Love, because what is, is,

    to feel that Love, you must accept it.

Last night while watching television I asked God, how am I helping others or where does looking for good in others help the world.  The answer was “when you look for good in others you open your soul to the positive and this leaves less room for evil in your life, when there is less evil present in the world then love has a much greater chance of taking hold and making the world a better place for all to live.  I know you are looking for the grand scheme of how you can change the world, but everyone looks to the future and to the mega impact event that changes the world but all each of you really needs to do is just change a little of the world each day, that is my hope for humanity.”

"Whoever lives by truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen 
 plainly that what you have done has been done through God"

John 3:21

___________________________________________________________

This morning I asked God how I could do more significant
work on His behalf.   The answer was, “you tend to want to
measure acts of kindness and love in a physical nature as
you would success in business or sports, but acts of love
can’t be measured, so any gesture of kindness or
love is significant”

World, the more you appreciate it.

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word
was God.  He was with God in the beginning.  Through him all things were made;
without him nothing was made that has been made.  In him was life, and that life 
was the light of men.  The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness
has not understood it." (read Our Souls, Then Now and Forever)

     Go into the world and when in conversation with others, listen not only

 

     to what they are saying but to what they are feeling.  In other words,

     don’t just hear what they are saying but really listen to what they saying.

     As they continue to speak don’t interrupt to offer your views or advise,

     because it will be what you want and that is not necessarily what is right for

    them. Once you have truly heard them, then perhaps there are words

    you may have to offer that may provide direction or guidance. 

    However, that is not what is important, the most important thing is the act

    of one human putting aside their own problems and views to listen,

    really listen, to the feelings of another.

                                   Hope vs. Confidence

 

    Many times we use Hope as a word which helps us define our relationship with GOD. 
I can’t say this is right or wrong but intriguing.  Think about what Hope means, it’s a
mental process or even emotion that we consciously go through basically wishing
something might be true.  However, if you look at Jesus who ultimately became at one
spiritually with God, he didn’t hope there was GOD, he knew there was GOD. 
So, I believe that as we become more and more aligned with who God is, our Hope
that he exists diminishes in direct ratio with our confidence level of his presence in our lives.

 

                                   Straight Forward Direction

 

I asked God the question; we read about what not to do and we read about what we

should do in order for us to live more spiritual lives, everyone seems to have a way or

opinion on how to be a better individual, what is your guidance?

 

     “KNOW that I am”

 

     “TRUST me, I mean really trust me to guide your life if you

       have requested that I do so.”

 

      “Live through TRUTH, this will come to you naturally if you are

        Attempting to live according to the first two concepts”

 

 ___________________________________________________________________________
On the other side of the human equation there is God or Love which
created both the need for us to live physically whereby having this
primitive requirement for food, warmth and shelter but God added
a very important second ingredient to the human make-up and that
is the soul.  This soul grows through the spirit (our individual mechanism
for transferring energy) being at one with the Spirit of God, the Love
that is directed at us can either be accepted or rejected and this can
and does happen at all different levels along the spectrum of Good to evil. 
As the Loving Energy is more readily accepted by an individual the energy
of evil is displaced, much like water being poured in to a cup, as it is
poured in, the air is displaced and there is no longer room for air. 
It is the same with Love and evil that is in our souls, the more
Loving Energy we learn to receive, the more evil is displaced. (read paper)

                                  Fear of Rejection is effecting
                                        Your confidence to succeed

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

 

“You will find that the world may reject you and the
work you are trying to do.  Remember, Jesus was
rejected time and time again but understood the
nature of mankind and rejection is inevitable,
so if you approach your calling with the fear of
rejection, your confidence will be undermined as
will the level of your success.”  
“However, you can be assured that I have not
and will not reject any being, especially those
who are trying to better the world on my behalf
and with this knowledge you are to walk in total
confidence regardless of those around you.”

          He Also Live In Total Control

       “DON’T LET WHAT YOU HAVE LEARNED

                         GET IN THE WAY OF

                           WHAT YOU KNOW”

                         “AND THEN JUST BE”

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

        words to me May 30 2007
                    (but the thoughts for today)

 

 “Why do you seek what is already there?”

 

 “Trust  that my presence is not only within you
   but all around
you as well”

“To truly care and love all that you meet is
  Devine, not 
being able to do so is human”

 

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------        

                          What is Sin?

 We try and define what sin is, both the Old and New Testaments continueously
hammer us as what we should not do, however wouldn't it be better to  
concentrate not on what we shouldn’t do in a negative sense but what we
should do in a positive sense.  Sin is simply any action which effects the spiritual growth
of the soul and ones relationship with God.  So, in effect a sin can be a different action
for each individual.

"YOU DON’T LIVE LIFE IN FEAR,

                 YOU LIVE LIFE"

   -----------------------------------------------------------------

 It’s clear no matter how much we try, we will never reach Spiritual perfection,
but in understanding this you also come to understand that life is not about
reaching the state of total oneness with God.  It is about the process of, and
the journey in attempting to do so.  Which leads to the idea, **“Holiness isn’t so
 much about grasping spiritual truths as being grasped by that Spirit of truth
which makes us and shapes us according to a purpose we can’t always guess”.

                TRUTH
             
 TRUTH comes from knowing what is.

      Live life in total truth -  
      it reveals total purity

 

 

 Aug. 22, 2008                  What Am I Suppose To Be?

 

 

I will tell you that some days I feel a closeness to God more so than other days.  There are days when I trust God and know that this trust will lead me in the direction of my calling.  But inevitably the question comes up, Lord what am I suppose to be, how am I part of your grand plan, who's soul am I suppose to save, what nation am I suppose to save.  Why do I wander in and out of my closeness to you, why aren't I more like those who wrote the Bible, why am I not more like Jesus, why am I not even like those around me who seem so in touch with you.  Do you know what answer the Lord gives me, "you are who you are, let yourself be who you are, you trust in me more at times than other times because of what experiences you have had over your life time, and you trust me emphatically more now than you ever have in your life, so continue to try and learn and develop your relationship with me but as you do, trust who you are."  Go into the world with two things in mind, I love you as you are now and want you to continue to grow spiritually and try and care for everyone you meet with a real sense of purpose, you won't succeed every time or even most of the time but just trying will help you grow in faith, in Love and in Me"

                The Path IS
                   The Spirit

 

                And Where it Goes

                  I Will Travel   (read paper)


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------                 

 

Do not go into the world seeking to do what is right with the conscious
or subconscious idea that in some way good will be returned to you.
 
Go into the world and live through truth and what is right, expecting
nothing in return from either man nor God.  God is not about
rewarding good behavior and disciplining bad, God is about the purity
of caring for each of us because God is what God is, if we are to align
ourselves with the Energy of God we need not to seek reward  for
caring for others but do so because it is the right thing to do.

                   The Spiritual Process

 

             Words to live your life by

              Do all the good you can,

                by all the means you can,                 

                in all the ways you can,

                in all the places you can,

                at all the times you can,

                to all the people you can,

                      as long you can.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

 

I asked God how can I be more at one with your Energy?

Then I started to pray that God be with and help those close

to me.  God stopped me and said, “you pray that I be

present in others lives to help strengthen them physically,

emotionally and spiritually.  Perhaps the better request is

how can I help you go into the world and through my

guidance, you help the very people you’ve ask me to help.”
