Love Is The Goal!

Love is a small little word with a big meaning. It’s one of those little words that gets thrown around and used in a lot of different ways. Someone may say that they love this or that person and then turn around and say they love pepperoni pizza. And while I hear what they are saying and can toally relate, the love for a person and the love for a food item are surely on totally different levels???

The Greeks solved this problem by having different words for different kinds of love. Agape was a Godly love, the kind that a Creator would have for His creation. Phila is a brotherly love and where Philadelphia the city of brotherly love gets its name from. This is a love shared between friends. Storge is a familial love or an affection that is shared among family. Eros is a sensual love, where we get our word erotic from and is represnetative of affecction shared for a lover.

“And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.” -1 John 4:16

We were created in Agape Love, for Agape love, so that we might learn to love with that same kind of love. Agape is the highest and most pure form of love. This love is the life we were created for. When I live without this kind of love, I am lost. When I think without this kind of love, I am confused. When I love without this kind of love, I am wasting time. As God has loved me, I want to love others, so I will open my heart, mind and spirit to God’s love, so that it might flow to me and through me to others.

How To Overcome Your Identitiy Crises…

We are in this world, but not of this world. This is a very important fact to remember as we are living our lives and seeking to grow into all we were created for. Our failure to recognize that we are a part of Divinity, that we were created by and in the image of God, often causes us to miss out on utilizing the supernatural power that we have at our disposal and therefore live with struggles that should be our strengths.

We are eternal, spiritual beings with a soul. We were created in eternity and for eternity, a thought that we cannot even begin to wrap our little earthly thinking minds around. This world that we live in is temporal, it will not last forever. In fact, if you look around, you can see that it is sick and dying. We often become affected and infected with the same disease, but it does not have to be that way, because we are not of this world.

“Beloved, I urge you as aliens and strangers to abstain from fleshly lusts which wage war against the soul.” -1 Peter 2:11

Our failure to understand and tap into our Divine heritage often causes us to get lost in confusion and misunderstanding, which leads to a life of aimless wandering from one frustration to another. We were created for so much more and so we need to know who we are, what we were created for and where we come from.

You are God’s creation. You were created to be blessed so you could bless and give glory to the One who created you. You come from the heart and mind of the Almighty. Let this knowledge inspire and motivate you to live the higher life you were created for and you will be amazed at how things begin to line up and change in your favor…

Never Alone!

I love country music and one of my favorite country music singers is Willie Nelson. One of my favorite songs that Willie sings is “You Were Always On My Mind!” in which he laments all the things he did not do that he should have done, but still wants to make it clear that the object of his desire was always on his mind. It’s a beautiful song and a beautiful thought.

It’s a thought that is reality for us with our Creator. We are always on the mind of God, because God is always with us. There is no where we can go to escape God’s presence and power. We may not sense that God is here, but that is usually because we are not looking or listening.

God is always at work in our lives and on our behalf. God invites us to join in that work of creation and manifest miracles for ourselves and others, if we are paying attention.

7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? 8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. 9 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; 10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me. 11 If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me. 12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee. Psalms 139:7-12

There is always something happening, life is a work in progress and the pieces are constantly moving and rearrangin themselves, so that God/Love may be revealed and life purpose fulfilled.

We live in a great big Universe and are a vital part of the divine tapestry that continually invites us into the soul work of growing in and with the blessing we were created for and that was created for us. God could never forget you, because you are the stuff of God – made in God’s image and endowed with supernatural power.

Open your eyes to God’s guidance. Open your ears to God’s direction. Open your heart to God’s blessings by remembering that we are all ONE, never separated, but always complete together and this is what we were created for…
