When Problems/challenges arise,
it helps me to remember that God is SO Big,
even when my vision and resources feel So small, sometimes.
When I try to fix my life, or figure out who I should be, or what I have to do - I often stay stuck.
But, when I spiritually put on the Mind of Christ: spiritual perspective, Christ Consciousness;
Everything Shifts inside me and in my world, naturally, effortlessly.
When I Try to be Good, to Act Loving, to Perform as I believe Jesus would have:
I get off track - Because I am being physically focused, no matter how 'holy' my intention.
When I focus spiritually, bring my spiritual eyes back on Jesus, the author and finisher of my faith, everything changes in and for me.
I am Not speaking of focusing on the Jesus of Religion, of Christian Faith and Practice, of Ethics or the Bible.
I am Not relying on who I think Jesus was or what I think he did when he walked the earth...
I AM speaking rather of who Jesus is Now, as spirit: always spiritually present with us, available to each of us now, in intimate relationship, in spiritual communion.
From this spiritual perspective,
problems/challenges are an invitation
back to my spiritual center: alignment with God and my unique path.
My challenge is:
- Really Allowing God's abundant, limitless blessings IN, and
- Allowing my eyes to shift from:
- flesh: my body, my needs, my shortfalls/brokenness and my myopia;
- to spirit: living as Jesus, as God's Way, Truth, Love, Life, Light manifest in our world.
SO many of us Mean to do all this, Think about this, Sometimes feel this and sometimes don't.
We hunger for God; to experience God's Blessings, Fruit, Leading and Manifestation in our lives, and in our world.
And many of us struggle with HOW to do this.
THIS is the focus of my ministry. Please see here for info.
