I Am Full Of Love

Jesus Christ statue inside church

Positive Affirmation: Loving Heart

“I am full of love because I was born to heal and spread happiness. I am full of love because God has led me to Jesus Christ who teaches me the correct ways to live by. I am full of love because I was given the holy spirit to heal others and connect with them on many loving planes. I don’t allow my mind’s anger to overtake my heart’s placid stream of love, but rather use my heart’s power to heal my mind in times of testing. When others do me wrong, I don’t attempt to apply the “eye for an eye” concept taught by others; that only brings more pain and division. Rather, I show them love back and allow them to realize that through their hatred, I continue to radiate love so that they too can learn as well. I am full of love and thankful that The Lord continues to bless me every day!”

I Am Kind-Hearted

Positive Affirmation: Heart Of Gold

“I am kind-hearted because I have learned through my life experience that doing the opposite has never resolved any problems. Weak people rely on hate and division, but I rely on God’s love which he has shared with the world before our creation. I am kind-hearted because this helps the world evolve into a better place, whether or not others recognize it. I am not like the rest because I am not of this world as God teaches us in the bible. And that’s why I am kind-hearted!”

Good Friday

Jesus Christ crucified on the cross

Jesus Was Crucified And Risen Back To Life

The Son of God who is named Jesus Christ continues to watch over us from heaven; what and where heaven is we do not know. We just know from the bible that Jesus is seated at the right side of God and watching over humanity. We have to be thankful that we are observing Good Friday with everything that is going on in the world; thanking God and Christ should be something that you should be doing right now.

People who used to be Christians but abandoned their faith have stated that they prayed for years and never saw any results. In return, they gave up their faith in God and went back to relying on humanity for answers. The problem is that humanity will give you answers that will make some sort of sense to you, but they will not be the answers that will bring you true spiritual happiness.

It’s very easy to become satisfied with humanity’s answers because we are human; we rely on logic and what our senses can detect. When people try to apply logic and reason with God, they become disappointed rather quickly. God does not interact with us through logic and reason; if He did, then everything would make sense.

God interacts with us through the Holy Ghost; this can be felt within you if you are close to God. Not everyone can truly say that they feel it, but you’ll know when you do. You’ll feel peaceful inside and this feeling will last with you as long as you continue to live within your true self, as well as continue to worship God and seek to improve your relationship with Him.

The beautiful thing about the Holy Ghost is that it can be given to you if you seek it with good intentions. But you must first interact with God and open up your heart to Him, even though he already knows everything about you and more. Giving yourself to God is putting Him before yourself and your family. Remember that if it weren’t for Him, you wouldn’t have a family in the first place.

We are all sitting here rightfully worrying about the coronavirus and its impact on humanity, but we have to remind ourselves that God is present with us during these evil times. He sees everything and knew this was going to happen before we were even born; God is all knowing because He is the creator! So don’t worry too much about all of these worldly events. If you have your faith set on God, then as a child of His, you will continue to gain confidence and march on in peace.

May God bless everyone on this Good Friday and may Jesus Christ return and save us all on Judgement Day. Amen!

Redesigning Ourselves

Praying For Each Other

Everyday selfishness is what prevents humanity from coming together to defeat the evilness that rules this world. Human nature, by design, is filled with selfishness but this does not mean that we cannot redesign ourselves. But the problem is that many do not know how to do this . . . many have not yet found it within their hearts the will to redesign themselves.

People wrongfully believe that redesigning themselves comes from within. It does to a certain extent but the percentage is small compared to asking God for help and guidance. That’s because when you attempt to redesign yourself without God’s help, you rely on the power found within you, and that power is humanly-derived; it can only take you so far.

That’s why you need God’s power to more effectively redesign yourself, and that can only be achieved by accepting and loving God in your mind and heart. Don’t bother if you’re going to be superficial about it; God knows you better than you know yourself. You must put God before your parents, siblings and significant other . . . you must put God before any human.

If you disagree with this, then you are disagreeing with the idea of putting your maker or creator before other humans. If it were not for God, you would have never had life and the chance to meet these humans who you call your “family.” God has blessed you with life, so if you want to redesign it, you must go back and reconnect with the source!

Fancy rituals, prayers in public, avoidance of certain foods, animal sacrifices . . . this is not what God is looking for; He does not want religious nuts but spiritual fruits! What God wants is a pure loving heart that is selfless and prays for others to improve as well. In praying for each other, you are not only redesigning yourself but are contributing to the improvement of others’ lives.

This is how humanity will improve and this is how we will better tackle mental illness, substance abuse, hatred, division and worldly pandemics.

This is how we will come together and love each other just the way that God envisions it for us.
