AN EXPERIMENT OF GOD’S TOUCH 2

GOD’S TOUCH

Without expecting anything, simply say, “I love you, Jesus” with your whole heart. Something that was a simple thought experiment can turn into something spectacular. A flood of energy can enter.

It is actually more of an intellectual and psychological strain not to believe in God than to believe: it’s about no hopelessness, not shutting out spirituality and coming to grips with the infinite. Logically, there is some sort of organized principal above or something unexplained but at least accessible to you right now!

 EXPERIMENT OF GOD’S TOUCH

What would happen if you let down your guard and stop resisting Christianity for a little experiment? What if you let Jesus in? Without expecting anything, simply say, “I love you, Jesus” with your whole heart. Someone like you tried this. Something that was a simple thought experiment turned into something spectacular. A flood of energy entered into that person.

You may be at the door, but you are afraid to enter.

Alternatively, you may wish to be more truthful about your relationship with Jesus. You need to build up this love relationship. A relationship means that you have to at least know a little about Jesus. It can start by reading a short biography of Jesus in the gospel of Luke. Later you can promote yourself to the gospel about love: the gospel of John. Now try an experiment that has been successful with other unbelievers.

A relationship means communication both ways. You can start by saying something others have said,”Jesus, if you exist, don’t be coy. You could just show yourself to me.”

What happened?

Immediately, I felt His Presence. I cannot adequately describe this: words fail. It was not a light, but a Person, fully, as if walking beside me, yet not of a man walking, but rather a source of pure light, pure heat: an irradiation of perfect Love, more real than the world around me and therefore tending to blot it out. I did not have to ask, “Are you the Christ?” for I knew this already.                                                                David Warren

 EXPERIMENT OF GOD’S TOUCH

You can classify this as a miracle: a  surprising and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore considered to be the work of a divine source. Do you believe in miracles? Try reading about or visiting Lourdes or Fatima. You will be convinced that miracles do happen. Continue reading AN EXPERIMENT OF GOD’S TOUCH 2

WHAT DOES SPIRITUALITY MEAN? 2

IN SEARCH OF SPIRITUALITY

We are in this world but not of this world since every day Christians say: “Our Father who art in heaven…

Spirituality mean

Even when we worship different gods, attend different schools, have different skin colors, we’re all supposed to share spirituality.

But you have a compute and Wikipedia: “Spirituality can refer to an ultimate or immaterial reality; an inner path enabling a person to discover the essence of their being; or the ‘deepest values and meanings by which people live.’”

Yes, that’s Wikipedia! It continues on to say, “Spirituality is often experienced as a source of inspiration or orientation in life. It can encompass belief in immaterial realities or experiences of the immanent or transcendent nature of the world.”

Hmm! That’s extremely broad. Maybe you should read a book on the subject.

Princeton religion scholar Leigh Schmidt wrote one called Restless Souls that charts the development of American spirituality. Rather than the “New Age” phenomenon it is sometimes misinterpreted as, spirituality is an egalitarian, pluralistic realm of experience and thought has  a unique and sometimes intellectually advanced role in American history. So, basically, Schmidt can’t (or won’t) really define spirituality, either.

We instinctively know that it’s mixed up in religion, but it’s definitely distinct from institutional religion. Can someone be religious without being spiritual? It’s completely plausible.

On the other side of the coin, you hear “I don’t go to church, but I’m very spiritual.” You may get called spiritual once in a while without understanding what it means. People can use spirituality as a buffer. Relying on ambiguity can be risky. Continue reading WHAT DOES SPIRITUALITY MEAN? 2

RESCUING A MARRIAGE 2

MARRIAGE UNDER STRESS

Marriage is under considerable stress as reflected by the divorce statistics. Today, the family has less support from close relatives living with or near them, because today’s family unit tends to be more self-contained. Husbands and wives tax each other to satisfy each other’s emotional needs. Couples simply do not expect so much from each other. Yet, the couples tend to be more disappointed when the marriage is less than idyllic as they had hoped. Children are very affected by this when they see the only human relationship that they know, fall apart.

RESCUING A MARRIAGE

The process of achieving independence for the children is not easy. Many parents seem to lack the insight or patience to help their children bring their own personality into the light of the day.

SAVE A MARRIAGE

 

rescue marriage

In his candid first book, “The All-or-Nothing Marriage”, Mr Finkel examines both how he and his wife survived the worst, and how other couples might do the same.

He argues that high expectations for a marriage greatly benefit a couple when times are good, but are counterproductive when times are tough. Mr Finkel and his wife made it through their own emotional rough weather by lowering expectations for a few years. Couples with high expectations are almost twice as happy during easier times as couples with lower expectations—but they are also almost twice as unhappy during hard times.

WHICH IS IT? GOD OR WEALTH

Money has always had meaning for people beyond its purchasing power. for many, money means success, power, and even moral worth. The giving of money has always established the giver as a valued member of a community. 

Jesus saw this as a private act of love to be seen by God, not as public act for show and honor. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing,  so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”                                               Matthew 6:3, 4

God or Wealth

Usually one is more important than the other. Wealth is the chief rival of our day to God. It is said that money is a good servant but a bad master. Personally we must master money or money masters you. Are we being choked by the wealth and riches of the world so that our faith cannot grow to maturity and bring a bountiful harvest?
