Something beautiful is being lost. It has been gradually slipping away for a long time, without anyone noticing. Now as the effects of this great loss are beginning to come into the light, the belly of the beast is being exposed. We are frantically grasping for answers, looking for solutions and applying bandages without really understanding what is being lost.
Look around you, look at the world we have created and are still creating – it seems to be a world of my will, your will, their will being done.
Let us return to the ancient paths and His word…
Thus says the Lord: Stand at the crossroads, and look, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way lies; and walk in it, and find rest for your souls.
Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy Name;
Thy kingdom come, Thy Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
My friends, I am not sure why but I have been distracted lately. Jesus hasn’t been at the forefront of my thoughts, instead I have been busy, running around, and missing Him. We took a yoga class together last night, and usually when He joins me He is helping me through, but last night in my imagination He was sitting there watching me (smiling, but still just watching). For some reason I have put Him aside instead of welcoming Him in?
As I miss Him, I am thankful for my previous posts that remind me that He is still here watching and waiting for me to call to Him again.
Please pray for me my friends, as you bask in His loving presence, that the veil covering me will be removed yet again, my eyes will be cleansed yet again, and again I will see only Him everywhere and in everyone!
Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will Be Done!
In Mark 11:24 Jesus says
Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
I love this statement in the Bible. It has been very close to my heart for a long time and it is one of the reasons I so strongly (and selfishly) believed and prayed for My Best Life for so long and this statement again held true when I began believing and praying for Our Best Life.
I am starting to find it very interesting that the more we believe and the more faith we have, the less we ask for in prayer. Jesus knew about this beautiful change that happens within our hearts when we believe and He buried this wonderful secret deep within His statement for us to find as our faith and belief increase.
Lord please help me to remember every day, every hour, and every minute to believe and to have faith in Your Will so that my prayers of request decrease and my prayers of love, thanksgiving and gratitude increase despite the weather within my life.
Lord thank You for Your Divine Will… it is full of love and goodness for EVERYONE.
Please let this be my prayer…
Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will Be Done, my Love.
During the Passion of our Lord, Simon the Cyrene was interrupted. Simon’s plans and his will were put on hold when he was asked to help carry the cross of our Lord.
Can you imagine how annoyed you would be to be pulled away from your schedule and your plans to help a convicted criminal? Sorrowfully I admit that I would be very annoyed and maybe even angry.
Simon didn’t know it at first, but this interruption was possibly the greatest blessing of his life, when he was given the honor to help our Lord.
Lord please help me to more graciously accept the interruptions and help me remember Your hidden blessings they carry as I turn away from my will and allow Your Will to be done.
Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will be done. Amen.
Do you ever buy a lottery ticket when the jackpot has become extremely large?
I do, and then for the next 24 hours until the drawing I start fantasizing about what I would do if I won. I start divvying up the money in my mind, deciding how much I would keep, how much I would give to family, estimating how much would be lost due to taxes, estimating how much I would have to pay advisors and then, finally, the last category tagged on as an after thought is how much I might give to those in need.
Usually by the end of the 24 hours, the amount I “need” to keep has gone up and the amount I would give away has gone down. It is pretty disgusting how quickly I get sucked into thinking/imagining/dreaming that I “need” $XXX,XXX,XXX.
Can you imagine my kingdom coming to be? Every time I hear the song Demons by Imagine Dragons I am reminded of my inner demon and I shudder at the thought of my kingdom coming to be.
My Heavenly Father, my Lord, my Love, my sweet Jesus… all I can say is thank You, thank You, thank You, for sparing me from ever winning the lottery, and instead using each ticket purchase to open my eyes to my own demon buried deep within.
I pray to always remember and I pray to always pray…
Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will Be Done.
