    Divine Vigilance like Self Awareness...but !

    Monday, August 24, 2015, 12:35 PM [My Heart My Soul My God]

    When we find ourselves in conflict with another. Do we place the blame always outside ourselves? If we do, we will never find the thing that is troubling us. For we will always be looking for the pain in us, to be cured by another?

    Divine insight asks God to reveal what's causing us distress? What is the outside showing us, that inside needs to correct?
    Divine vigilance is similar to self awareness, the difference is, it allows for God to make the correction in us, by showing us how much we want to our hold on being "right". And where God wants us instead, to be His forgiveness

    A Sunday Devotional

    Sunday, August 16, 2015, 9:58 AM [My Heart My Soul My God]

    Some Christians believe they are saved because they believe Christ is God and died for our sins.
    And they are right.
    They may believe with the same flat unmoving words, spoken as if it is just a prayer of repetition. Lacking heart. And yet they will be saved.
    Other Christians believe, they need to actively participate in a church, or another house of worship, where fellowship is their main reason to attend.
    Few Christians I would imagine, would choose to walk the Path of Christ.
    For that would mean, they would need to pick up their OWN cross, and commit to becoming more like Christ.
    That would mean self examination; finding out who they are , warts and all.
    It would mean, making nothing greater than God in their lives, not even their families, who most would find that the hardest nail on their cross.
    But when all is done, what exactly is the purpose of a devoted Christian, if not to become like the greatest model of love, given to us and the World?
    Some will choose to preach the word, in the attempt to glorify themselves.
    For others it will be a sincere journey in search of their own relationship with God.
    All I can do is speak for myself. It was the greatest the worst, the best, the hardest, the most painful , pleasure one can experience. And still I would pick up my cross again and again. Because there is no greater love one can have, then to have Christ as your Lover and your Friend.

    Soul Body Connection

    Thursday, August 6, 2015, 6:51 PM [My Heart My Soul My God]

    We are a Soul that has a body, are the words C S Lewis has expressed.
    This is true. But how many live as the Soul they are?
    How many even know what their Soul is?
    Our Soul is the Eternal in us.
    It is the part of our being, that lives forever.
    It has a twofold purpose. It records all the good we feel, and feeds us with the Eternal Good, that is God.
    When we do something good or feel good because we did good, our Soul records that in our eternity. The more we respond to our Soul, the more Good gets both stored, and renewed again in us.
    Our body feels good, but it doesn't store it, its not the bodies job. The body stores the negative memories we have, because we needed to remember how to protect ourselves and our survival in the world.
    So the more we respond to the good of our Soul, the more good is stored within us.
    The more we listen to that which lives in the eternal, the healthier we become. Why? Because there is less need to store the negative in our body. There will be less need to be fearful, or protective, the more we live what's in our Soul.

    The "I", The "He", The "We"

    Wednesday, August 5, 2015, 8:23 AM [My Heart My Soul My God]

    When we depend on ourselves, we build our ego's confidence, and that's a good thing. It's part of our growth, in the journey of becoming who we are.
    Our ego fears, so it needs to grow in it's confidence. And the more we conquer our fears, the more confident we become in our skin.
    And then, when our confidence has been secured, built by the problems it believes it conquered, we find our problems change. They become less about our confidence, and more about who we are in our relationships.
    It's then, we go from the need to develop the "I", to wanting to grow more in the love of the "We".
    The "We" now begins to feel the emptiness, once filled by our ego's confidence..
    We begin to feel the need to love and be loved more.
    It's in this time, we can longingly seek God. Or we find relationships that fail to give us what we seek.

    Something called our Soul knows, only He can fill that emptiness . We can fill that emptiness with work, or drink, or money, power, or fame, but that will never fill the "We" we need. 
    If we are blessed, it's then we realize, it's the "I", who needs the "He", so we can be the "WE". It's then, the Father and I are One.

    Innocence is Our Spirit

    Monday, July 27, 2015, 8:57 AM [My Heart My Soul My God]

    Our Spirit can be understood, when we see the innocence of a new born babe. We see in a new born, purity, untouched by the earths soil. How is it we know we must be gentle, That we need to keep this pure being clean. We wrap it in softness, speak to it gently. Hold it with care. This is the spirit of our soul...this is its innocence...visible to us in the flesh.
    Is it any wonder, God asks us to be pure of heart? For He see's us in our innocence even though He knows the dirt upon our feet.
