Proverbs For A New Day: 46 – 50

Holy_Spirit1

Proverbs For A New Day: XLVI – L

XLVI: If ever the darkness shall blow through you, like a cold and bitter wind, be strong. It is essential you command it to leave you. For hesitation may bring a myriad of things, both unwanted and unkind. Take control of the dark wind and send it on its way.

XLVII: You who feel love as natural as the sunlight of midday, strive to keep it moving. Share it always. Do not hold love nor hide it. Release its power and light to the world. Be a beacon for all those with whom you interact everyday of your life. Be a light in the darkness of their day.

XLVIII: So far as the mountains are high, so far as the sun is from the earth—so far is the Blessing of God from those who choose the path of darkness. Do not curse, neither man nor beast. Do not judge, for unless you were born as the Lord, perfection will be a sought after dream. Simply allow, and try, and give love in all things, even to the end.

XLIX: The Lord is your salvation. Remember the Lord. The Lord is your strength. Remember to thank the Lord. God is your only right hand when a hand is needed. Lean into the voice of God in your heart. Seek His counsel. Learn His ways. Give Him back the love He so easily gives to you.

L: And when your life is over, and your days counted and done, the Love you have shown to each other and given to the Lord, will be as golden treasure. For the Lord’s heart opens with a finger touch of remembrance and showers abundance upon those who heed His Words.

Patience

603428_10151168137860450_602978803_n

One of the most challenging fruits or virtues of the spirit is patience, or longsuffering as the ancients called it. The virtue of patience is one of the most vulnerable characteristics of any human being.

Perhaps in order to learn this tactic, one should consider the average home’s domestic pet, the dog.

A dog will sit and wait without flinching or succumbing to any distraction when he has decided that a particular thing is desired. He will also sit and wait for his beloved master or mistress to return to him for great lengths of time. And even after death, dogs are known to lie on the graves of their human companion, waiting patiently for their return.

If only a human could be like that. Whether promise of healing, prosperity, or love is involved, the average man or woman can barely tolerate a wait of seconds or minutes, let alone hours or days. It seems to be almost beyond the average individual’s abilities to simply trust, have faith and wait patiently for the results that have been promised.

The dog goes to the kitchen at precisely 9:00 a.m. expecting breakfast because that is when it is always served. If you are late, they are still there.

a_baa-hungry-dogs-waiting-for-lunc

If you forget to give them an expected treat, they will simply stare at you and wait till you fulfill your part of the bargain.

Why can’t a human be like that in their partnership with God?

When health is promised, doubts arise in the human mind within seconds, to knock down that healing. When prosperity is promised and not received immediately, patience goes out the window and within hours or days the individual is once again full of fear and doubt.

And love? Most humans view themselves as unlovable, and so being accepting of love, and then patiently receiving it, may not ever be part of their expected picture.

So for the human to learn patience, they must learn to mimic the valued family dog who sits and waits, never doubting that their loved one will fulfill their needs.

Be patient like a dog. Wait upon the Lord and He will renew your strength. Wait upon the Lord and He will heal you. Wait upon the Lord and He will shower you with prosperity and Blessings.

Be patient. Wait upon the Lord.

The Energy of Thought

644594_606169142733158_1747415242_nThe Energy of Thought creates.

The Energy from Thought is Creation Energy.

Remove the Thought and you remove the Energy of Creation.

This applies to all things both good and bad.

Holy_Spirit1

Proverbs For A New Day: XXVI – XXX

XXVI

You know me Lord. Let me know You. Show me your ways, Oh Lord, that I may please You and Your loving ways may please me. Let us work together for the same goals. Seek the Lord as partner and friend. Seek the Lord as ally. For the Lord is a powerhouse of strength.

XXVII

A wise man opens his heart to the Lord and follows the will of God. A wise man does not toil or strive but seeks the counsel of the Almighty and acts upon His instruction. For the way of God is the easier path. The way of God is the wisdom of the wise.

XXVIII

We are the perfect spiritual creation of God. We are perfect in every way. The Lord has used His Divine energy to create us in His image. We are the beauty of God. Love the Lord with all your heart and mind, for He has given you His mirror image as His own.

XXIX

No one can know the Lord with his eyes. No one can know the Lord with his ears. No physical sense of a man can touch the essence of God. Open your heart and let the fellowship of the Holy Spirit become one with you. Let the light of God fully envelop your being. Become one with the Lord of Light.

XXX

Let not age of body come between you and the Lord. Remember the Lord though your days be many, and your body weary. Remember the Lord and praise His goodness and He will make your days as beautiful as the flowers in Heaven’s garden.

Proverbs For A New Day: Twenty-one to Twenty-five

Holy_Spirit1

Proverbs For A New Day: XXI-XXV

XXI: In the face of adversity, reach out to the one constant since the dawn of time. Reach out to God, Divinity, a clear and present source of all that is Love. Be not afraid. Be not stressed. Be still and awaken to the Peace of God.

XXII: For You are my source. You are my comfort in the night. I feel your presence in my waking and my sleeping. God is never-ending triumph over fear. Reach for the Lord. Lean into His Strength.

XXIII: Give unto the Lord your first thoughts of the morning. Tithe your mind and heart to the source of all that is Good and Wise and True, before you rise from your bed. Begin your day in communion with God.

XXIV: All that you are is God’s. All that you possess is God’s. There is nothing that is about you in love and joy that is not God’s. And so remember Him with laughter. Remember Him with songs and jubilation. Remember Him with time spent in meditation upon His goodness.

XXV: If all that can be seen were to spin out of control and seem to be lost in darkness, there would still be God. There would still be a Light shining far off in the distance, waiting to connect with the Light within your heart. Link your Light to God and build your roadway to Heaven.

Soothing The Troubled Mind

427389_2860171378363_815983800_n

One of the most difficult things to do in modern times is keep one’s mind stable and calm. Just driving to the grocery store can put a person into a frazzled state of anxiety.

Most people by the end of their day, find themselves exhausted and stressed out, unable to soothe their troubled minds. Many reach for liquid alcohol refreshment that seemingly calms the nerves but may eventually bring a host of other problems.

306228_3144177558340_56175589_n

Finding calmness and living an anxiety-free life can be directly linked to one’s attitude toward death.

As children and teenagers, it is not unusual to say these kinds of things: “If I fail that exam, I’ll die.” “If I don’t get that new bike, I’ll just die.” “If I don’t get to go to that university, I’ll die.” “If he doesn’t marry me, I’ll die.”

If you keep repeating that kind of thing, you subconsciously start to believe it. You get the picture.

As one grows older, somehow feelings of anxiety wrap themselves even tighter around the idea of a ‘death’ result—whether small or large, actual or symbolic—a sort of empty, black futureless entity. Death becomes the nightmare result of everything that stresses one out or causes fear. Failure causes a black hole to appear right in the road and sit solidly in one’s path.

If we can learn to take ‘death’ off the table, a lot of anxiety can disappear.

No, you most likely will not actually die if you fail your exams and even if your parents yell at you, or ground you, you still, most likely, will not die.

If you don’t get that new job you have set your heart on, you won’t die. Death is not usually the regular result of failure, not acquiring something or not achieving a goal.

No…disappointment is.

Ahh…disappointment: the wet blanket of the mind. The smothering darkness that can crush the heart and emotions.

Disappointment…not death.

So how does one learn to handle disappointment? By not hanging one’s hat so intently on the results of personal behaviour. The world is a changing, constantly morphing place and to expect eternality or the constant achievement of every desire, might be a bit too ambitious.

Success, prosperity and health—yes, if you are really doing what you are supposed to as a Child of God.

But achieving every little thing—no. This is where trust must come in. If one learns to trust that God always wants the best for His Children, and has an even better plan, job, bike, result etc. in place, then you can learn to walk through your life detached from the results of all your actions.

You can learn to not be disappointed when “at first you don’t succeed.”

So to calm the troubled mind, walk in detachment, and…don’t confuse disappointment and temporary lack of success with thoughts that the world is coming to an end.

Relax, detach, let go and let God. Trust that you will be cared for and God has a better plan.

Proverbs For A New Day: Sixteen Through Twenty

Holy_Spirit1

Proverbs For A New Day: XVI – XX

XVI: Healing of the heart brings healing of the body. Healing of the soul brings healing of the mind. When the Light of God, your Divine essence, reflects from you and through you, healing will come to you and to those who surround you.

XVII: Lack of faith can allow your heart to be punctured and let darkness seep in. Trust in the Lord, for His Mercy is limitless. His Love is neverending. His compassion—ever-enduring.

XVIII: Pour not your trust into man. Pour your trust into the Lord who made the Heavens and the Earth. His day will bring you joy and ever-lasting peace. Step under the umbrella of the Lord, entwined forever in safety.

XIX: When I was a child, I reached for the hand of my mother. As an adult, I reach for the hands of my spouse and my children. But all are as fragile as a wisp of smoke in the breeze. Build your foundation on the eternality of God. Reach into His Strength and grip tightly onto His Hand. For He will bring you through all tribulation, unto an everlasting tomorrow.

XX: I am your Mother. I am your Father. I am your Brother. I am your Child. I am your future. Your forever. The tomorrow of your dreams. As I reach my hand out to you, do not pull away. For my fingers are strong and will hold you up, though the ground fall away beneath your feet. Trust in Me for your salvation.

Ben
