The Battle Worth Fighting!

One of the things I am continually having to remind myself of is the reality that I am not a human being looking for a spiritual experience, but a spiritual being getting to have a human experience. While it is true that I live in the flesh and it has it’s limitations, the me that is living in the flesh is spirit and is limitless in time and space.

I sometime get caught up in living as if my spirit is the servant to my flesh and this is just not true, in fact, this is backwards and the reason that so many of us are frustrated, discouraged and often living defeated. This is the battle that really matters and the one that we need to make sure we are giving our attention and energy to.

“But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh. For the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you please. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law.” -Galatians 5:16-18

When we finally begin to realize who we are and what we are created to be, it opens up a whole brand new universe filled with possibilities of blessing, growth and miracles. When I make the decision to live under the spiritual principles of the universe rather than the limited physical laws of the flesh, then a very amazing thing happens – I really begin to live, grow and thrive according to my created purpose. This brings a fulfillment and satisfaction like nothing else can, because in the SPIRIT, there is abundant blessing, unlimited opportunity and a never ending supply of love, light and peace.

When I finally remember that I am SPIRIT, I tap into who and what I really am and all the supernatural power that comes with it. Living at my true place of being, raises me above the limits of this physical world and opens up beautiful and breathtaking opportunity to bless and be blessed, which is what we were created for. This is the battle worth fighting…

Breaking Free Of The Jaded Life!

Live in this world long enough and at some point you are going to find yourself disenchanted and jaded by the sacrifices you’ve made, which have required you to forfeit the tenderness you were created in. This does not take away from the amazingness of this world, but it does cause us to miss out, because we are not tuned in and aligned in body, mind and spirit.

Living the jaded life leads us to become mean, cynical and sarcastic, which keeps us from living in the power of supernatural blessing. Most of us that get trapped in the jaded life style do not have or make time for reflection and instead get caught up, distracted and sent in the wrong direction by judging others, becoming overly critical and toxic in our negativity.

This is not a place or way we would normally choose to live our life, but once we get on the proverbial ”rat wheel”, it is very challenging to get off. At some point we get tired of it all, give up and become stuck or we become motivated to change things no matter what.

”Have you not known? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable.” -Isaiah 40:28

Here’s the beautiful and amazing truth: We don’t have to learn anything new to break free of the jaded life, we simply have to believe, claim and live in the power of truths already revealed by God to us. Faith makes all things possible and the best way to grow our faith is to return to what we already know and trust, believe and have faith.

There is a door that leads to freedom from the jaded lifestyle and that door is unlocked with the key called faith. Unlock that door with your belief and watch the miraculous freedom flow from Heaven into and through your life and living…

The Last Day Of Your Life!

The media would have us think everyone is freaking out over the coronavirus, which I simply don’t believe is true. I believe a handful of people have bought into the hysteria, but for the most part, the people I know, just continue to live their everyday lives and maybe wash their hands a little bit more. All this media negativity and the knee jerk reaction of professional organizations has got me to thinking…

There used to be a popular phrase plastered on buildings, stickers and used in quotes by motivational speakers. It said: ”Today is the first day of the rest of your life!” This is a pretty good thought to think and be challenged and encouraged by, but maybe a better way to think about it is: ”Today may be the last day of your life.” Everyday is a precious gift, which most of us tend to take for granted.

The scriptures are full of reminders that we have a limited amount of time in this human experience. James 4:14 says: ”Yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.”

I don’t have any idea how serious this coronavirus deal is, but I do know that we are not guaranteed tomorrow and we never have been, so really nothing has changed. My advice is to live today as of it may be your last day. If you love someone tell them, pull close and hug and kiss those who are dear to you. Forgive and let go of negativity. Do the things that matter, while there is still time to do those things. LIVE your life, that’s why you are here and that is what you were given this day to do.

The past is over, learn from it, let it go and move on. The future here on earth is not promised to any of us, so accept today as the present, open it up and enjoy it for all its worth and you will have nothing to fear.
