    Why God Why?

    Thursday, December 11, 2008, 8:18 PM [General]

    God wants us to act freely, because love freely given is true love, and God wants us to love Him like a father craves love from his child.  The risk of us sinning is just as hard for Him as for us, but it must be allowed.  Our eventual sin is just as hard on Him as on us, but it must be borne.371d36d75e05eda735858f8e467be99c

    Want, Need, and Have

    Thursday, December 11, 2008, 8:16 PM [General]

    It takes us so little to survive. If we pare down what we want to what we need, we would gain an insightful new appreciation for what we have.371d36d75e05eda735858f8e467be99c

    Seeking God Instead of Running Away

    Tuesday, December 9, 2008, 8:44 PM [General]

    God walks with you whether you invite Him or not. He doesn’t need you to believe in Him in order for Him to function. He thought you up long before you were born; now that you’re here you can’t hide from Him. He created you without your input; He loves you without your permission.371d36d75e05eda735858f8e467be99c

    Your Most Valuable Asset

    Monday, December 8, 2008, 6:45 PM [General]

    The most precious thing you own, your spirit, is being visited with loving care at every moment by the almighty Creator of the universe. If that doesn't appear at the top of your list of most valuable assets, I feel so sorry for you.371d36d75e05eda735858f8e467be99c

    Deep Peace of Holiness

    Sunday, December 7, 2008, 6:50 PM [General]

    Worry and fretting over this life is evidence that you do not trust in God. If you don’t trust in God, you’re denying Him, and if you deny Him you are rejecting the only gift that is of any importance to you. 371d36d75e05eda735858f8e467be99c

    Just Being -- The Constant Prayer

    Saturday, December 6, 2008, 6:03 PM [General]

    In mystic terminology, these people are living in constant prayer, praying continuously, or practicing the presence of God. Living in a right-relationship with God is itself a prayer of love for that God.

    Choosing our Trials

    Thursday, December 4, 2008, 6:43 PM [General]

    What extremism does to mystic principle is the same harm it does to every human activity. It takes something good and turns it into something harmful. And it generates the opposite of what it proposes to do.371d36d75e05eda735858f8e467be99c

    Q&A -- Let Go, Let God, and Let Good

    Monday, December 1, 2008, 11:00 PM [General]

    If you truly and humbly wish to please God, He will answer that wish in some way unknown except by Him. Since you’re attuned to Him, you will pick up on His desires. You cannot be inadequate when you and God are attuned because God will not allow it, no matter what the world may say.371d36d75e05eda735858f8e467be99c

    The Theology of Beauty

    Sunday, November 30, 2008, 9:45 PM [General]

    Because God is present in everything, there is beauty in everything. When it pops out at you suddenly, this latent beauty is a nod from God. It uplifts and comforts, and hints even to the most secular among us that all is not what it seems – all is much more than it seems.371d36d75e05eda735858f8e467be99c
