Hello everyone! Welcome to my daily column! I hope that you had an awesome day! My day was rather uneventful. It was one of those days when I spend more time learning from my movements than trying to accomplish.
Every morning I read my daily readings, check reference 1 if you are interested in what books! I like to look for a thought that stands out, today the morning message seemed to be speaking about HAPPINESS.
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.Luke 2:10 KJV
Today I was brought to a few conversations about our connection with Jesus. I think some religions bound to generational ideologies put a disconnect between the man and the spirit. We worship a man named Jesus, while the man named Jesus was telling us our connection with him is not separate and it unites us with God. I worship Jesus, absolutely, but I also acknowledge that he is in me and I am in him. Check out my ministry TikTok!
I may actually even say that every time I think outside of things that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, and things of good report (Philippians 4:8 KJV), I am walking in disbelief. This is why the Bible says that not one of us is good (Psalm 53:3 KJV), why? Well, we all fall inter divers temptations. The only truth I know is that the union with Jesus is the only thing that can pull me back from seeping into the dark abyss birthed by my doubt. I couldn’t imagine seeing Jesus as separate from all the days of my life. So I ask, are you truly a believer? Do you believe that Jesus died for our sins and rose again in 3 days to pour out his spirit unto all men? Or do you believe you are not worthy, that you don’t measure up, or that you could never be like him?
I say God is still alive and true today the same as he was yesterday, and he has a plan and purpose for all of us to fulfill his eternal glory on this earth. Many put down Judas because he betrayed Christ, but it was the prophecy, he had to do it for us to be saved. Though he has a bad rap as a rebel today, he was fulfilling his purpose. I can’t imagine one Christian not having their gut wrenched when we imagine what Christ endured for us, yet it was his purpose to present to us heaven before death. As was it prophesy for those that had him hung. I say, are you receiving Jesus’ spirit with belief? Are you receiving it because it was purchased for you? Or are you the person on Christmas that receives the gift only to push it away because it cost too much? You know the responses, “You shouldn’t have”, “Why did you do that, it cost too much”, or “No I can’t accept that it is too much”. Or do you receive it with an overwhelming sense of gratitude because he thought you were that special to give you that costly gift for a beautiful purpose? Jesus said eternal life is through him, so we might want to take a look at what we did with this gift.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.Galatians 5:22-25 KJV
While I was reading Sarah Ban Breathnach’s book this morning, she spoke about Marianne Williamson. I found this video on YouTube! It was such a blessing! You won’t regret watching it!
Joy and Happiness are tucked away inside of you waiting for your worthiness to appreciate it. I wish you all a beautiful day tomorrow! I hope you will see that you are incredibly worthy and such a beautiful blessing to the world. Blessings to you my friends!
