I hope you had the best Father's Day weekend ever. It is Sunday morning and right after I finish this post, I will head out to Daddy and Mommy's house for brunch with my Daddy for Daddy's Day ;)
In my last post, YOUR MIND IS THE CENTER OF DIVINE OPERATION OF YOUR LIFE, my friend Joseph commented a request that I write about quieting your mind and how I have a close relationship with God.
So, I thought I would respond to the request on how I have a close relationship with God, first.
My relationship with God is based on a DEEP DOWN IN MY HEART FAITH AND LOVE FOR GOD AND ALL MANKIND. REALLY!!!
FAITH AND LOVE. And this is not the superficial kind where I go to church on Sunday, feel and profess the love of God, and then go about my business through out the week, forgetting about this love and faith I have for the Divine and others.
Jesus the Christ said in Matthew Chapter 21 Verse 22, "And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive."
And then in Mathew Chapter 22 Verses 37 through 40 Jesus answers the question, which is the great commandment in the law, and He says, "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and all the prophets."
I love these two scriptures because they are the way to a closeness with God. Faith and love.
Faith and love!!! These are my affirmations and I know this is what God is and I know this is what God wants for us. This is a deep down everyday way of thoughts and feelings for me.
I know, without a doubt, that God loves me and I am to love Him and others.
I know, without a doubt that my faith in God gives me confidence, happiness, energy, joy, and vitality and therefore, it is the reasons I maintain and sustain my relationship with Him.
MY FAITH AND MY LOVE FOR EVERYTHING UPON THIS EARTH, ABOVE IT, AND BELOW IT, CREATES MY CLOSENESS WITH GOD.
Faith and Love eliminate doubt, fear, and worry, which is what destressing yourself is all about.
Just for you Joseph.
Gotta go see Daddy and Mommy. Have a great week and don't forget to have fun and be playful.
