"The 'rules have been changed'...purpose of the Cross...Christ our Lord God...life.
In today's market-driven society, it is about us, the selfish we want, self-felt
needs and expecting it to suddenly happen with no thought of 'working for it'...
which requires sacrifices, perseverance, commitments and HONESTY. Let us
be clear...God's love is tough love and never instructed to be easy! But in
today's world it is about entertainment, fun, movies and illusions of HD imagery,
self-acclaim and all for a 'profit' in some form. The most disturbing of all,
churches have entered into market-driven strategies to fill the pews, at
whatever means they feel necessary...the shameful behavior is kept closed
by clannishness...'what goes on here stays here'...with the impression, there way
is the way to heaven. Being submissive to the will of others is said to be
disobedience to God's will. Make no mistake, there is much value in a church
with the right perspective of 'life'...from this side of the 'glass' it is not to
judge or offend, but to share my personal experiences of the past two decades,
since turning my 'life' over to the care of my 'Higher Power'...as many things
have been revealed and I am glad, by the grace of God. In this journey, I have
encountered those of the 'religious' ways, but oh why, do they claim not knowing
of an inner peace of really knowing of God's presence within...but what they are told
to think and believe...for many are 'away' from the reality of God's plan...
'to be' Christ like with ones own 'life'....there is to be many challenges, struggles,
heartaches, tears, difficulties, burdens, death and sorrows...but who knows
of ALL things...Jesus Christ...my Lord God."
'Praise God'...I'M Alive...I'M Alive...I'M Alive...
('Bingo'..."believe I need God, Ok")

"To pray is to descend with the mind into the heart,
and there to stand before the face of the Lord,
ever-present, all-seeing within ones own self."....
'Prayer is standing in the presence of God with the
mind in the heart...that is, at that point of our being
where there are no divisions or distractions, and
where we are totally one. There God's Spirit dwells
and there the great encounter takes place. There
heart speaks to heart, because we stand before the
face of the Lord, all-seeing within us.'
Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask Your forgiveness and to seek Your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says, "Woe on those who call evil good," but that's exactly what we have done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We confess that:
We have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your Word and called it pluralism.
We have worshiped other gods and called it multi-culturalism.
We have endorsed perversion and called it an alternative lifestyle.
We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery.
We have neglected the needy and called it self-preservation.
We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.
We have killed our unborn children and called it a choice.
We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable.
We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self-esteem.
We have abused power and called it political savvy.
We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition.
We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression.
We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment.
Search us, O God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and set us free.
Guide and bless these men and women who have been sent to direct us to the Center of Your Will.
I ask it in the name of Your Son, the living Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
What awesome insight, humility and honesty!!! Attributes sadly lacking in the halls of government and in our society.
With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep our Nation and wholeheartedly become our desire, so that we again can be called a Nation of People Who Love God!
Please send this prayer to as many of your friends as you can. Let us all help to get God back into our lives and most importantly into the lives of our children & grandchildren.
'Each shall have their own understanding, so long as one does
not become submissive to the will of those that perpetrate false
deceptions, as there are many seeking self acclaim. Christ our
Lord is in our hearts, mind and soul...the Holy Spirit freely dwells
within our own selves, each has their own choice to accept this,
or forever be lost in the world of deception. Make no mistake, God's
work has been done...but many cannot comprehend this, and until one
gets right with self...there shall be confusion and bewilderment in any
attempt to acquire a peace within ones self. When one shall come to find
and learn of a 'Spiritual ' awareness within, many things are revealed that
will forever change ones life. The materialistic world has brought cause
for a foolish world of a great 'falling away' of God. Has this too, not been told
of 'to be'....
'Disturbing are those caught up in their materialistic selfishness.
For selfishness of self shall forever hinder one from knowing of
a peace and well being within ones own self...it is not meant to be
any other way, for has not the 'breathe of God'...told of these things.
Renewing of the mind is essential in coming to know of a better quality
of life...in all things...BELIEVE IT!"
RESPECT....you have it....or not.
"From this side of the 'glass'...It is with hope that those experiencing
difficulties, come to realize and learn to accept truth, as too often the
truth is often painful, but it must be confronted and dealt with. The problem
appears to be just this...unwilling to change and apply spiritual principles.
Many beg for a change in many things, but yet unwilling to change....
this simply does not work...believe it....experience is a great teacher...
only by the 'grace' of God...it is from this side of the 'glass' to share this
life's personal spiritual journey, now of two decades...Praise God!
Testimony of the heart is indispensable."
'This day...let the 'blind' see, and the 'deaf' hear.
Our love of God is to be bold...for many need to be awakened!
'Spiritually discerned, a grave consequence being displayed by those
forever in contempt, forever blind and deaf to the 'teachings' of Christ.
Lost in self-centered selfishness shall forever hinder any chance of coming
to know precisely the gift of the Holy Spirit which has been fully allowed unto
all of a sound mind...for to be bold in this truth...the masses have gone away
from this truth...by the 'breathe of God'...has been told of 'to be'...very concerned
for the lost souls crying out for a reprieve of much suffering and disturbing thoughts
being displayed in our communities. For to be bold in the warnings that so many
are in contempt of...for they listen to all things not of the 'teachings' of Christ our Lord God.
Their heartaches, their pain and untold restlessness shall be , in the continuous of their
unwillingness to change with a renewing of attitude and actions in the spiritual realm of God.
It is said to be double-minded...an unstable person shall be found...'to be'......
'mirror mirror on the wall, what is it that YOU see.'
Make no mistake...getting right with ones own self has to be
the first order of things...for it works no other way. Does not
the 'breathe of God'...tell of this very thing. But the communities
are in contempt of this truth...for so long as one is not willing to change,
one can expect to be ever 'away' from knowing of god's 'presence'...
one cannot hide in self knowledge of 'readings' of the 'words'...
for testimony of the heart and soul are a display of ones love of God.
One must know this and know it well...God's work has been done.
Each shall be held accountable and responsible for attitude and actions
of all our affairs and in our testimony of ones true self...for within ones
own self...shall be found answers so many are in search of....then again,
there are those that choose their own selfish, self centered materialistic
ways, forever 'away' from knowing of God's way...'to be'.
Praise God...I Am You...You Are I....
(let the reader understand)
'Into the coming New Year...ponder the truth of things...
self-centered selfishness shall always be a hindrance
of knowing of God's peace and well being within ones self.
Self knowledge of God's words has to be lived, not just recited
for self acclaim. Has it not been told of, that anything under the
sun that which brings cause for division and separation...shall
be abomination....mirror mirror on the wall...what is it that YOU SEE.
God's work has been done...EACH shall be held accountable and
responsible for our own attitude and actions, in all things. The world
has become foolish with it's wisdom...for man's way is not God's way...
there lies the dilemma of untold lives living their way and not striving
to change for a better spiritual obedience...for there one shall come to know
of a personal relationship of God's 'presence'...or one shall be ever
in contempt and live on ones own selfish agenda...the Dividing Line
is real...spiritual harmony shall bring a gladness of great value in all
of life happening events, great and small...believe it.
Praise God...I Am You...You Are I....
The lost are many that come to share words of endless
wants and needs of worldly things. For they know not, the
first order of all things is not of the asking and wanting...
but the giving of ones own self over to God's care...
self centered selfishness shall always be a hindrance in
any hope of God's plan to be known in ones own life...
We have to learn to get out of our way...and accept God's way...
believe it...from this side of the 'glass'...it works so long as
we make a commitment of an honest desire to change our way...
and retain a God conscious attitude and actions in our daily affairs.
"Many are called...few are chosen."
"For many shall be caught up in ways of the world.
For in vain are their materialistic relationship with God's Spirit.
For they shall be lured by many...of many messages of man.
Has it not been told...and man alone shall be deceived by man.
For they fail to fully comprehend the oneness of one purpose.
There lies the dilemma most all are in contempt of...
The Holy Spirit within ones' own self...'TO BE'..............
For of all things...they turn away in fear...not to know...
The profound implications of..."I AM YOU...YOU ARE I"...
Make no mistake...one cannot hide from ones own conscience.
Now all are witness to the deception of many...for has it not
been told of ...the coming of the coming 'to be'....
Great events are on the 'horizon'...God's plan is not to be 'mocked'.
'Now is the time, as never before...for we all need to come together...
in the unseen realm of spiritual 'awareness'...for only within one's
own self, are 'to be' found many needed answers, so many are searching for.
The materialistic 'world' has plundered the very minds and souls...
for are not confusion and overwhelming bewilderment being displayed...
far and wide across the 'airwaves'...for has it not been told of...
'the rules have been changed'....now for ALL to witness, the 'coming
of the coming, 'to be'....or not.........'BROTHERLY LOVE'...God's plan 'to be'
The world has become foolish with their wisdom!
~Now ALL are witness to the deception of ...'the airwaves'...has it not been
told of.....'by air'...the Nature of ALL things 'to be' witnessed by ALL!
A spiritual 'darkness' looms over a community filled with an attitude of self centered selfishness.
For in vain shall be their out cry for any reprieve in troubled times, seeking with conceit of self.
So long as one is not right with the Divine Spirit of God...expect nothing from nothing!
Let us be ever mindful...to receive, one must first give...there is no other way possible!
Giving ones self over to God's care in attitude and actions, for this shall be essential.
Simple things are made complicated by ones own self...mirror- mirror on the wall...what is it that YOU see.
For it all starts with the one in the mirror...God's work has been done! The most important
resource comes from within ones own self...one can forever expect nothing to change...
so long as one remains unwilling to FIRST change ones spiritual attitude...make NO MISTAKE...
IT IS NOT MEANT TO BE EASY!....
'From this side of the 'glass'....COME CLOSE TO WORDS BEFORE YOU....FOR OVER FIVE
DECADES THIS LIFE WAS MY WAY...THE FOOLISHNESS OF MY WAY'S CAME TO A
FEARFUL END!...I FINALLY REALIZED, I HAD TO CHANGE MYSELF. I MADE A DECISION
TO TURN MYSELF OVER TO GOD'S CARE...AMEN!....NOW OF TWO DECADES HAVING
GOD'S PRESENCE, I AM TRULY GRATEFUL. FOR EACH DAY, ONE DAY AT A TIME...
THE PAST IS GONE BUT NEVER FORGOTTEN, THE FUTURE IS 'TO BE'...EACH DAY
IS A NEW DAY OF LEARNING AND LOVING THE GIFT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT THAT WHICH
HELPS GUIDE MY THOUGHTS AND ACTIONS...NEVER DOUBT THERE ARE TO BE SOME
HEAVY BUMPS ALONG THE WAY...BUT BY THE GRACE OF GOD...I AM...TO OVERCOME.'
PRAISE GOD....I'M ALIVE...I'M ALIVE...I'M ALIVE
'Know of the teaching of Jesus...for many look away'
A thoughtful share from this side of the 'glass'...in retrospect of life's tests we face.
No one is immune from the daily challenges of life happening. Reflecting over this
life, we often learn of a better quality of life by the struggles we endure, but sadly
there are those that remain in contempt and resentful of past and present circumstances
which will forever hinder the work of the Holy Spirit to bring peace within.
It is firmly believed that honesty of ones attitude and actions in relationship with the
Divine Spirit of Christ shall be of profound value...within ones own self.
Let us be ever mindful...it starts with the one in the mirror.
I felt this is worth sharing...Praise God.
'Sharing ones faith shall be our mission'...believe it.'
In God's hands...in reality...is not God in our hands...a paradox, there are many.
Are we not all guilty of this misconception. From this side of the 'glass'...I must
remind myself often, that God's work has been done, and it is in my hands as to
my attitude and actions in my daily life. Our faith in the unseen shall be our strength,
or not. For from here it is in the spiritual realm of things, with a quiet mind, that many
things are revealed within, by the gift of the Holy Spirit...'to be'. Communities far
and wide are 'away' from true spiritual thoughts and actions, are they not. The
intellectual community means well, but often with illogical and materialistic thoughts...
vacant of spiritual thoughts from the heart, as guided by the Holy Spirit...for is it
not said...God is about the world...but not of the world. One must be ever-mindful...
I Am You...You Are I...'to be'
~let the reader understand~
'Let us welcome them, one by one by one...those that have found their way here.'
As many are in search of a reprieve from troubled lives. Make no mistake, it seems
we too often put ourselves in harms way by our own making...this I know well.
Turning our life over to God's care is a commitment and sacrifice, with untold rewards,
so long as we maintain a spiritual relationship in our attitude and actions, in all our affairs.
Make no mistake...the journey is not meant to be easy...and is for eternity...believe it.
For each day is a new day for new learning of ones own self...for it has to start with SELF.
Let us pray we come to know and learn just what it is that is needed in our life.
Many of us believed that heeding the words of God meant following rigid rules,
an instruction booklet for life.
Some of us now believe differently, the rigid rules, the endless instructions, the
exhortation to perfection, are not the words our Lord whispers.
The words of God are often those still small words we call intuition or instinct,
leading and guiding us forward.
We are free to be who we are, to listen to and trust ourselves. We are free to
listen to the gentle, loving words of a loving God, words whispered to and
through each of us.
Today, help us God, to let go of shame-based rules. Let us choose the
freedom of loving, listening, and trusting.
Praise God...I Am You...You Are I...
"We finally saw that faith in some kind of God was a part of our make-up, just as much as the feeling we have for a friend. [[ But of a much greater friend, for in fact it is our own self, Our Own True Self, that portion of localized divinity that He has given to each of His Children. ]] Sometimes we had to search fearlessly, but He was there. He was as much a fact as we were. We found the Great Reality deep down within us. In the last analysis it is only there that He may be found. It was so with us." ..... We are never separate from God. Separation from God is only an illusion that we have created.
For ALL to come to know...it starts with the one in the mirror!
