Love- A Call to Action

As I sit and ponder and meditate this morning, thoughts and impressions flow into my mind. My prayers are not for me but for my brothers and sisters upon this earth at this time. Flashes of the women and children being torn away from each other, Fathers being beaten down! The feelings run deep in me as I pray for their deliverance from such evil. I pray that angels surround them and comfort them as I have come to understand that the distance between heaven and earth is really next to none, for the things of the spirit, which we cannot see, truly are all around us. So…how do we call upon the powers of heaven and work in harmony with the unseen angels all around us that walk this earth for the soul purpose of guiding, directing, protecting and comforting the human family? First, we must realize that truly we are children of the most High God, Sons and Daughters of the Powerful Creator and Source of Love and Light. We must come to understand that because of the gift of the Atonement of Jesus Christ, we have been bought with a price and claimed by Deity and in this it is our right to ask for all that we stand in need of for our family, our nation, this world and ourselves, especially as we cultivate the pure desire to love and serve each other. Because of Christ we can become free in our hearts and minds from the blood and sins of this generation and step into a place of power and freedom, unlike this world alone can offer. Freedom is not something that happens on the outside but on the inside 1st. Our Freedom was bought with the price of Christ’s blood which was shed for all and was brought upon him through his willingness to truly feel, experience and carry it all. When He carried the cross, it was not just the physical burden that He carried but more so the sins and sorrows of the world…the cry of every man, woman and child, the deep pain and hatred of the perpetrator, murderer and sinner, the depressed and self loathing mother, the overburdened and afraid father. He bore it all, magnified a hundredfold because of the purity of His soul, to carry such darkness literally was death. He did this purely out of love and His desire to be our Advocate, to be able to walk by our side in this life, to be our friend and our Savior, to embody the love that we need to move all sin, barriers and boundaries.
So, what is the answer to the problems of the world…LOVE. Love for ourselves and love for one another. It seems so simple, too simple…peace, love, happiness. You look at any situation, on a big scale or a small…the problem is a lack of pure love. Love for oneself, for God and for fellow men. Pure love heals all wounds, it empowers us to Forgive and to move forward in greater peace. It places us in a space to be creators of our lives instead of reactors, it gives us courage to stand and fight for our rights when needed. You want to help the world, tap into Love and then ask what you can do and do it! Love IS THE ANSWER.
So this is my call, my call to action! Do something today and every day for the next 30 days to show LOVE. It can be something simple and small or something huge and gigantic, either way you are changing the planet, because when you choose love and you do something to spread that, it creates ripples throughout the earth. It creates a chain reaction, so in this you can literally change the world. So be a creator today and change the world, one action of Love at a time.

Be Still

As I am preparing to uproot my family and move to another location, alone….I am coming to understand and appreciate more and more the counsel from God to “be still and know that I am God.” I woke up this morning feeling a great amount of anxiety because things were not working out the way I wanted and I felt that things were unraveling before me, that I was not going to get to where I wanted to go. The fighter in me began to rise up my thoughts began something like this, ” I will be moving this week come hell or high water, I don’t care what I have to do, this will happen!”  And my anxiety grew and I could not feel the spirit of the Lord with me, I hate that feeling! So I began to get still inside, quieting my thoughts and striving to connect back with my heart.  I began to speak to myself again “You are in the Lord’s hands, he will help you and watch over you. Maybe this is all happening for a reason. Let him guide you, go with the flow. ”

It has been a year now since I wrote this and on that day, I did move forward, my children and I, with my cousins help, moved 2 hours away and started our new life.  It has been a journey of learning and I have been a witness of many miracles. God sustained us and opened doors that day, just as He has every day since.  He has sent people at needed times and Angels to uplift, sustain and edify me and my family.  He has blessed us with money out of  no where and opportunities for more. To this day, I continue to learn that God speaks to us in many different ways, but the most powerful way is when He speaks directly to our hearts in a way that we must be still to hear and know.

I’ve come to understand that being still means that I quiet my mind, I stop thinking and I just quiet everything in my body and feel.  When I do this, it’s when I can feel Him so near and in a quiet but powerful way He speaks right to my heart.  I have noticed that knowing this has given me so much strength and direction in the mist of confusion.  I know that if I can get quiet and look into my heart, He will be there and I know it is Him because only He can speak to the heart, my spirit. His still small voice, cuts through the loud confusion and fear and anxiety quickly. His voice is gentle, direct and  brings peace and a feeling of overall well being.

“Being still”  means that we don’t react to the voices of fear and doubt and negativity that surround us and bombard our minds on a consistent basis.  God knows when we get still, we are putting ourselves in a place of hearing and receiving, its when we can receive clearly and then move forward with power. Getting still requires us to use our agency in a powerful way in the midst of confusion, confusion is of the devil, he wants us to get caught up in reacting.  When we react to fear and anxiety, we give Satan power over us, but when we make the choice to get still in the midst of confusion, we are taking a very powerful stand for ourselves and God.  We are disengaging from the confusion that is of Satan, we are saying “I see you Satan, I know what this is and I am not going to participate and you cannot have power over me.”   When we choose to get still and seek God, we are showing forth true power and inviting God’s power to carry us forward and through.   So when you and I begin to feel worry, doubt, fear and anxiety….we need to recognize it for what it is, and then get still, look for God, invite Him into our hearts and receive what He has to give.  God truly lives, is over all and offers His love and peace always in every moment. We  just need to “be still and know that he IS God.”bestill
