We Are All Brothers and Sisters
June 10, 2018 05:00 AM PDT
While the old saying of 'blood is thicker than water' is true, it doesn't capture the larger truth that could be a global aspiration. We fail to see that while our birth families are the entry point into this world, we are still part of the universal family of this planet. The scripture that says, 'a house divided against itself shall not stand' is just as true today as it ever was. We need to live into that truth and simply change the world.
Mark 3:20-35Why Is This Happening To Me?
June 03, 2018 05:00 AM PDT
Have you ever noticed that there may be a streak of bad news that comes to us all? There are even some folks who have a continuous run of bad news on a regular basis. It may even seem as if there is an intention to target you with some of these happenings, but that is not the case.
Perhaps we are taking many of these things personally. Our egocentric selves would have it all be about us when there may be a higher purpose in these events. Maybe the bad news is really an opportunity for the "Good News" to unfold.
Psalm 139:1-18Before Ministering to Others
May 27, 2018 05:00 AM PDT
You may not think of things in this way, but you do have a ministry. AND you do minister to others. One of the requirements of ministering to others is that you must first be willing to be open to receptive to the ministering of God.
Isaiah 6:1-8A Change in Spirit
May 20, 2018 05:17 AM PDT
When change is needed it can be obvious or it can be quite subtle. We may have an old pair of shoes that have been around for a very long time. Do they need to be changed? At the same time, we know when a baby needs to be changed. When will you be willing to accept the higher life design for yourself that is available once you surrender and accept God's change for your life?
1 Corinthians 15:50-57To Know Joy
May 06, 2018 05:00 AM PDT
We measure so much of our lives by external elements and that can be at the expense of accessing and taking inventory of those things we have within. We may spend a lot of time seeking happiness when in reality what we want is something we already possess - Joy. What is it like to live in your love?
John 15:9-17 and Psalm 30:1-5Are You Ready to be Pruned?
April 29, 2018 05:00 AM PDT
We hold on to old habits with a very strong grip. We live our lives by the guidance of superstition. We often supplant our faith out of convenience. When all is said and done,what is left?
In gardening, pruning is one of the most important acts. It is the process of removing unproductive parts of the plant that sap energy and nutrients. When we allow ourselves to be pruned or speaking more directly, allow those unproductive aspects of our lives to be discarded, we can be become more powerful and productive.
Are you ready to be pruned?
John 15:1-8Loving in Truth and in Action
April 22, 2018 05:00 AM PDT
How often do we hear or offer the words I Love You?
How often are they just shallow declarations without action behind them?
Consider that there is an opportunity to expand your experience of love for yourself and the world simply by making love an action rather than simply a tossed about phrase.
1 John 3:16-24Open Your Mind
April 15, 2018 04:50 AM PDT
How often do we find ourselves 'knowing' how things will turn out? We kid ourselves with thinking that we have it all figured out when that is not the case. That knowing doesn't allow for the contribution of others.
The miraculous becomes available when we choose to open our minds to the contribution of spirit.
April 08, 2018 04:33 AM PDT
Crabs in a barrel are on each others backs trying to get ahead. Why is that the paradigm for how we live? If there were greater collaboration what would be the result? We deserve that higher level thinking.
Acts 4:32-35Your Resurrection
April 01, 2018 04:45 AM PDT
It is Easter Sunday. You have broken your fast. You are now free to return to the use of whatever you may have sacrificed. But what are you reintroducing into your life: chocolate, wine, or some other desired thing? What was your sacrifice that is now to be restored?
This is a different look at sacrifice and The Resurrection. This is about Your Resurrection.
This is a rebroadcast of a message from 2010.
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.
