Just Do It
June 04, 2017 05:00 AM PDT
When folks are grieving after suffering a loss or under stress, what do you say? All to often, we find that we may be at a loss of words in those situations. What can we say that would make a difference? In times like these we may say to a person suffering a loss, 'call if I can help,' or 'what can I do?' Their response is usually thank you, or I'll let you know. Generally nothing happens after that.
Coming from one spirit, the same Spirit, we need only act from that Spirit to make a difference and to provide comfort for them. Sometimes being a friend means just sitting there silently holding a hand.
Just like the Nike tag line - Just Do It.
1 Corinthians 12:3-13Glorify the Father

The prayer that Jesus recited right before he ascended into heaven is cited in John 17:1-11. It is a prayer in which acknowledges that his mission is complete and that he has done all that God has asked of him. In that prayer, he states that all he was able to do was because of his connection to God. All that he has touched was God's and that God's message was left with all whom he had touched.
John 17:1-11 and John 14:10The Peace of the World

There is a difference between the peace we talk about in the world and the peace of God. If we were to actually present God's peace in the world it would most definitely be a different place. Consider BEING God's peace in the world.
John 14:25-31A Mother's Heart

1 Peter 2:2 1-3 So clean house! Make a clean sweep of malice and pretense, envy and hurtful talk. You’ve had a taste of God. Now, like infants at the breast, drink deep of God’s pure kindness. Then you’ll grow up mature and whole in God.

Everyone is looking for a deal or a discount. Why pay full price when you can get a deal? It makes no sense to give away money.
John 10:1-10 and John 14Start by Doing What's Necessary

In our youth, we can't wait until we are old enough to do this thing or that. When we get older, we become nostalgic about our youth. Little do we realize that there is an order to things in this universe. If we are here, then we reflect the accomplishment of the impossible in many ways.
John 14:12-14There But For The Grace of God...

Perhaps we have it backwards. Perhaps our disabilities hold the pathway for our expression of God in our lives. That pathway is paved with God's love, compassion and acceptance of each other.
1 John 11:18The Living One
April 16, 2017 05:07 AM PDT
Why do you look for the Living One in cemeteries? That is so often what we do. There is good reason for us as Christians to embrace the power of the resurrection and the transformation.
Luke 24:1-53You Won't Always Have Me

When is it time to share your best? What is the occasion when you don't give a second thought to using the best that you have? At the same time, how easy is it to shut down an opportunity to go 'top shelf?'
John 12:1-8Getting Your Heart Right
April 02, 2017 05:12 AM PDT
We might be waiting for our prayers to be answered, but what if we are looking at things in the wrong way? What if our prayers have already been answered and we can't see it? Are we blind to the realization of answered prayer?
Regardless of your faith tradition, we speak to the higher self in each of us. Take what serves you from these messages for inspiration and encouragement. We can all use a bit of that.
