I must apologize for being sporadic at times with thoughts and feelings but that is my mind and it never rests to stay on any one subject to long. Except that of God (which isn’t a subject but an absolution) He is what I’d love to talk about, learn more of and grow within more and more, for strength for truth for life and for all of us who are always thirsty for more and more wonderful and amazing that is He.
So here is one (of many that is setting me free, growing me stronger) incidents in my Spiritual journey I encountered that I realized some people out there were conflicted about and that was harming their own path to Truth and life with God.
I had a friend who was very “christian” in her religious routine; go to church on sunday, make sure her kids did the first communion thing, pray before eating….and that was it. During our phone conversations before I’d go over to visit she’d make sure to ask “now we pray before supper, are you going to be comfortable with that?” Which wasn’t so much a question (because It didn’t pertain to me) but a statement for witness to their “obedience” in their religion. So when I finally went to visit her, I was looking forward to some conversations about Jesus and Faith, because that is how she made herself and that of her family’s home to be. a home dedicated to God and living as best as they could in God with a thirst to expand heart and mind and Spirit.. But I was really wrong. She is one of those “christians, catholics” that will not listen to or discuss or expand upon anything that is outside of what she was taught by a mother she dislikes ….Funny how people cling to beliefs and opinions that were formed FOR them BY someone they don’t like, respect or would want to be like (which is exactly what happens!) She ended up being one of those religious talkers but no doing or believing–just full of empty words because that is the religion she was raised on ..and refuses to move her mind (you know people like that right!?)….. But something positive (for me) came out of a question she brought up about God and I realized it was a question a lot of wishy washy religious people face that keep them stuck in their stinking thinking. and I’d like to explain it so that the reason will help dissolve a doubt any one out there have about God’s love –if you are one of those out there thats struggling with some wrong teaching or unexplained explanations you’ve been exposed to.
The story my friend has trouble with in the Bible is about Abraham and God’s command that he offers his son as sacrifice. My friend said “she doesn’t know about how a loving God could ask this.” I then realized that if this story is misread or not explained well then thats a “check mark” for satan cause he loves doubt!
And this is how I can explain it . God knew he would send His Son to save the world. Now if I was going to send my son to save the world I would make sure He would come from a lineage that started with the best of the best! Look at how much you have to prove of yourself just to get a car! Now quadbillon that for the application to be the start of the line for the King of Kings!!!!!!!!!!!! and so How would you find out to be sure without doubt that the person you chose (it works for the chosen too) would be the right person???? —To ask that of the chosen to do the most painful act while having the most abundant faith in GOD that what He asks of you there is no doubt, no questions no flinching and all in Love…..And that is what it was for, pure love and both sides had it!
Have a Fantastic Night!
