You never know what can happen in your life at any time.


 
        I went from thinking that I had nothing to say that mattered 
        to anyone to having a lot to say that does matter. 

        What about you? 

        What are you hiding inside of you as a the gift that you came to 
        bring to yourself, someone or to the world? 
        It doesn't have to be big. It just has to be what your spirit came 
        here to do. It could be planting flowers, art, your job or raising a 
        child in this world.

        Do you know what it is yet? 
        Don't worry. I didn't find out until I was around 50.

“’We Shall Overcome’ – Martin Luther King, Jr.,” by trippin2bilie.

                                      ****************************


    If I really were weak-minded, I would have been dead years ago.
                       It actually took a very strong mind for me 
                                 to make it through all of this.
    

            love and support are to be found...



Remember something when times get tough: learning to listen to my spirit and to God was NEVER as difficult at any time than being in the hell of emotional pain or depression.


                                            *************

When you are in the shadows, or you feel that the shadows are near, remember to look up, to visualize the blazing Star above you in the spirit spheres, and to feel its strength, its steadiness, its radiance, pouring into your heart. Go forward in confidence and in full consciousness of the light of this Star shining upon you.

                                                                - White Eagle




Miracles occur as involuntary effects of a loving personality, an invisible force that emanates from someone whose conscious intention is to give and receive love. As we relinquish the fears that block the love within us, we become God's instruments. We become His miracle workers.

                                                ~Marianne Williamson~

There is a spiritual side to illness and suffering. Sometimes we do not physically get well but sometimes we do. Sometimes we find a bigger healing that comes out of our illnesses. Sometimes we die but we still learn something at the same time.

Try to think about what your illness or suffering might be trying to teach you or what your spirit or body might be trying to say as well.

**********

Sometimes, God says or answers “no” to our prayers or maybe sometimes He would like us to do something differently than we ask or what we want it to look like.

*********

God allows Himself and all that He is to be found by those who seek Him in the manner He prescribes. He bestows His favor on them as did the Prodigal Son's father. He forgives their sins and writes His laws on their hearts as He teaches them His ways. He strengthens them to forsake their idols. He assures them that they are "accepted in the Beloved" (Ephesians 1:6 ). He provides for them physically and heals them psychologically. He gives them understanding and wisdom, as well as a foretaste of the rest and peace to come. Eventually, He ushers them completely and totally into His Kingdom.

Powerful testimony of God‘s healing from David Berkowitz, the Son of Sam shooter.

Ever since I was a small child, my life seemed to be filled with torment. I would often have seizures in which I would roll on the floor. Sometimes furniture would get knocked over. When these attacks came, it felt as if something was entering me.

….

In 1975, however, I met some guys at a party who were, I later found out, heavily involved in the occult. I had always been fascinated with witchcraft, satanism, and occult things since I was a child. When I was growing up I watched countless horror and satanic movies, one of which was Rosemary’s Baby. That movie in particular totally captivated my mind.

….

Although I knew he meant well I mocked him because I did not think that God would ever forgive me or that He would want anything to do with me.

….

He kept reminding me that no matter what a person did, Christ stood ready to forgive if that individual would be willing to turn from the bad things they were doing and would put their full faith and trust in Jesus Christ and what He did on the cross by dying for our sins.

….

More than eleven years have gone by since I had that first talk with the Lord. So many good things have happened in my life since. Jesus Christ has allowed me to start an outreach ministry right here in the prison where I have been given permission by prison officials to work in the Special Needs Unit where men who have various emotional and coping problems are housed. I can pray with them as we read our Bibles together. I get the chance to show them a lot of brotherly love and compassion.

….

You see, I am not sharing this message to simply tell you an interesting story. Rather I want you to taste the goodness of God in my life, a man who was once a devil worshipper and a murderer, to show you that Jesus Christ is about forgiveness, hope and change.

….

I only wish I knew Jesus before all these crimes happened - they would not have happened.

 

 

 

….people can change, be forgiven and go on to help others … even some of the “worst” can be healed.

Like the sun coming out from behind a cloud …  one day you realize that God is inside of you ...

*****

This is a wonderful gift! He [God] is not overly concerned about our individual sins as long as He sees in us a steady, upward trajectory toward maturity in our conduct to reach the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. If a child falls as he toddles across the floor, will not his parents set him upright, dust him off, comfort him, and show him, "This is the way you do it"? Can we expect any less from God, in whose image we are? Therefore, our acceptance before Him gives us time to grow.

        What is your gift or special talent? What makes you special? What can you do well? What can you give to others that will help their lives be better in some way?

         Can you write, sing, negotiate, play sports, take care of kids, plant flowers, talk to plants, speak, entertain, throw parties, laugh, dance, build, cut hair, draw or anything else? What kind of life experience do you have that could help others live better, make better choices or change their lives for the better in some way?  

        … anything you do well can be used to help others or to serve God in some way. Use it to be a role model. Be an example in whatever field you find yourself playing in.

My God, people do not know you! If they did, you would be loved far more than you are. If people only knew your wisdom, power, goodness, beauty, and all your divine attributes, they would all have become seraphim consumed with the fire of your divine love. This is my aim: to make you known, so that you may be loved and served by all. O my God and my Father, may I know you and make you known; love you and make you loved; serve you and make you served; praise you and make all creatures praise you. Grant, my Father, that all sinners be converted, all the just persevere in grace, and all of us attain to eternal glory.

                                                                                                                                                                    St. Anthony Claret
