LIVING A LIFE OF GRACE

WEDNESDAY’S BLESSING

Forgive often and always

Living a life of grace requires a constant effort to forgive those who offend us. That does not diminish the wounds afflicted on us, but forgiveness renders freedom from resentment, anger and jealousy. That may take time but the reward is infinite. Forgiveness heals and makes everything new in us and most likely others.

THE PIT OF DARKNESS

Does hell even exist?

So many people today doubt the existence of hell, but it does exist.

I once had a dreadful dream of being shown hell.  It was such a black hole of infinite darkness, of horrible pain, torment and torture.  I saw him sitting on a fiery throne, his long tail switching back and forth.  It seemed that he was wanting to approach me when I screamed, “No! I belong to Jesus!”  I repeated this affirmation until it woke me up–hell is real, no joke.

A Prophet, Glenda Jackson on YouTube recently witnessed to a dream where God took her to hell, saying:

“A volcano’s mouth is the opening to go into hell.  I saw him sitting on a fiery seat.  Do you remember the recent tsunami in Japan and a volcano had erupted shortly after?  God had to make the volcano erupt to house all those who had died in the tsunami.”

Glenda concluded by saying, “The Spirit of Jesus draws all souls to God.  We would do good to worship to turn the tide of darkness.”

Let us pray about everything without anxiety, in thankful supplication, let our requests be made known to God.

A SAINTLY PROPHETIC MESSAGE

Hildegard of the Rhine once said:

“DARE TO DECLARE WHO YOU ARE.

IT IS NOT FAR FROM THE SHORES OF SILENCE

TO THE BOUNDARIES OF SPEECH.

THE PATH IS NOT LONG, BUT THE WAY IS DEEP.

YOU MUST NOT ONLY WALK THERE,

YOU MUST BE PREPARED TO LEAP.”

How goodly is God to give us such an ancient friend to echo what our prophets today are warning us about the “Great Awakening.”

IS IT NOW OR NEVER?

“”Sometimes there is no next time, no time-outs, and no second chances.  Sometimes it’s now or never.”

–Alan Bennett

For me two forks in the road presented themselves as now or never.  The first was whether or not to return to America after working in Europe for 10 years…at the urgency of my family.  Eight years later, John and I fell in love.  Both turn of events proved now or never, with no regrets and greater dreams ahead than when we started –Woo-hoo!

I wonder, what feels like it’s ‘now or never’ in your life?

“Search for Me as for hidden treasure.  I will be found by you.”

FISHING WORKS

“It is not how you start the race or where you are during the race – it is how you cross the finish line that will matter.”

–Robert D. Hales

As you read this post, Hubby and moi are at the lake this week, him fishing and me watching him hopefully catching fish as I scribble Haiku in a notebook.

Do you always finish what you start?

Is there something you really need to finish?

Pat yourself for something you did finish proudly.

FREE VERSE

Free, free, I love you this way

Hearing from above and a fresh start

Stay free, I love you this way

There’s plenty of Love in the air

With much more I have yet to say.

…Christopher, this poem is for you…
