The Mind of Peace 2

leave a comment »

Are you being tested? If so, just pray: : “Lord, you’ve put your finger on some areas in me. Pluck them out of my heart. Encourage me, Lord that I’m not going backward — I’m going forward with you!”

So, Thinking Brilliantly is not like going to a conference and try to change your behavior, isn’t either to deny that there is pain. Thinking Brilliantly is simply holding to God in a private and intimate relationship where you can open your heart to Him alone and be changed. As a result of it our behavior would change, our perception would get better, our response would be a response and no a reaction, and in time we would mature. We would be ready to love, even the unlovable, and to embrace of His love more and more. Thinking as Christ is Thinking Brilliantly. There is no other hope, and we all must remember to hold fast to Him at all times.

Knowing who we are IN Christ would encourage us to hold fast to the faith we had been given and to work it out to discover the answer to our path. That every promise God make would come to past, and that to that effect we are being made ready to embrace and to overflow with such strength that no weapon formed against us would take us out of our place, and even in the midst of pain we would prevail. Our God is greater, Our God is stronger, and Our God is Healer, Awesome in Power, Our God!!!

Vision gave pain a purpose, and out of all is the purpose of learning to love as He does. To be restored to His likeness, as in the beginning. Remember? Mankind is born with a purpose, lest do it!! Again, did you have a Vision for your Life? If not, God can give you one. LISTEN.

Be Blessed!! Lest Think Brilliantly Today!!! God is at Hand!!!!
He is always ready to Teach
. God doesn’t lie.
HE is always ready!
Be Blessed!!!

The Mind Of Peace

leave a comment »

The extreme of one side is called religious thinking and said: Worry/Good Works. The other extreme of that same side is called new age thinking and said: Denial/Good Feelings. The Right side said: Discernment, thru Unity…with God.

Can we still advancing in our venture while tasting pain? Can pain be walk out by embracing peace at the same time? At the Same Time? What? Really?

Peace, as you must had heard before is not the absence of difficulties but the Divine Grace we can hold fast to while in the midst of “the matter”. When all means fail, like a piece is missing…Security, Peace, Joy. All I need is an anchor in the midst of the difficulty to get me back to my feet again. Divine Peace.

Thinking Brilliantly.

What is Thinking Brilliantly?

Is not denial, isn’t coldness, isn’t avoiding reaching out to others and mourning with them, even sometimes we need to cry with them. Thinking brilliantly is no other than thinking from God and with Him. What is in the mind of God then? One of the various things I know about Him is that He is good; the rest is on the Bible. In essence, HE IS STRONG to carry me. And so cool to walk beside me regardless of my mess. Now in time He requires commitment, obviously, but HE is more than anything freaking amazing I can dare to imagine; God is full of greater Mercies every new day.

From victory to victory.

To me the practice of walking out in the midst of anything is to be able to handle anything using my heart and not my anger, my love and not unforgiveness, my light which is God’s own Light that we carry when working from Him. With Him. To Hold fast. To listen to what His heart is saying and do the best with my faith to LOVE as He does. In time I learned a little, in times I cry, In times I rejoice, but more I have counted…Joy, Joy, Joy. To me is an ongoing discipline, Pray, Listen, Obey. Receiving a fresh word from God and to put that to practice. Walking by faith.

…continue.

The Purpose of Pain

leave a comment »

Vision gave pain a purpose.

When you don’t like what you see and you can not change it. In life I have experience the lost of a best friend in a car accident, the lost of friendships due to walking different directions, the lost of opportunities, the lost of beautiful relationships. That hurts. Lots.

There can also be obstacles to freedom, soul tides that we need to be broken, strongholds, old habits, addictions, lies that need also to be broken; and people we need to forgive. Holding an offense against someone is the most difficult and painful thing to overcome (trust would take its time). So, growing…it is very painful as well. Very. At least to me. And age is just a number.

I am just astonished at thinking how much strength a human is able to carry, there are thousands if not millions of situations in our life in which this strength is called to do its work; jet some kind of pain can just be handle in oneness with God. That kind came not from a Divine plan but is used as a Divine appointment to take us to the next level with God. The pain of growing said: How ‘Bout me?? Then, we are introduced to the opportunity to go to the next level. With a vision before hand, pain finds its purpose. Sometimes instead of gaining some greater revelation to unfold in front of us the relief we immediately need, all we are called to do is to grow in faith and in wisdom. Pain is not created by God to give us lessons. But He can use it to serve Him in making us grow instead of just walking on denial, or coldness toward Him.

We all know that men are born to conquer, that every man and women want to be completed. Once you spend enough time discerning what is the rock in your way that you stumble with in “the season”, then you can come out with only one last resort: Growth. Therefore, why we have to give lots of walks around ourselves as if searching for a tail. Simple? Be you, be sincere, use pen & paper and talk to Him. He is not mute, never dumb, not deaf, never cold, and always ready. FOR YOU. AND JUST FOR YOU.

While dealing with pain we for sure are very tempted at reaching “WHATEVER” else comes to satisfy our hunger, the burden, and the pain. But if we are serious enough we can reach God in just one uncomplicated way to open our eyes. I have read lots of articles, notes, formulas, books, motivational stuff, new age, all else. None say what I’ve found: TALK TO GOD.

Instead of putting away pain with money, food, sex, anything. TALK! (each one of this would naturally find its expresion in the apropiate time).
But You deserve Him. We deserve Him. He died for it. He is the God of the “Suddenly”. Death is over!!! LIFE is to be experience to the fullness of God.

Did you have a Vision for your Life? If not, God can give you one. LISTEN. Pain may not be avoided all at once, but we can still take advantage of it by holding closer to the more stronger person in all of existence. Him. God is so good, strong, and closer than our breath. Speaking to Him would be better and better. Our God is a good God, and pain would at the right time lost its grip. It would. Persevere! God is STRONGER. Yeah!

And remember: If isn’t fun without God, don’t do it. God is freaking Cool!!

This is not a Science class

with 12 comments

We have the authority to reproduce human life thru ourselves. To that effect a man meets a women, and a woman meets a man (that was justice to the title). Therefore every human life in its very essence is holy. What happen to music also happen to people, we become evil.

Now, according to the bible, every human is born condemn to it. We are born that way. That clearly explains our inability to maintain our righteousness spotless (if ever reach any of it). And also explains our need for a Savior. Jesus.

Here is my point. When Jesus embraces people He must see them as He created them in the beginning.

“RAW”

God is not naïve, not abstract. What He does while having complete knowledge of what we have become, or do as a result of it, He still in Love with the seed He planted on us. Pure righteousness. When we call Him, He then can again give us the breath to be again alive.

“SEED”

There is hope. There is God. There is an Ocean of Grace. Lest drink it! Next time I approach another human being I would make sure I see as God does, I would try hard to keep the hope up to treat them as anyone and everyone deserves. Big Love!

Laws Of Life

* Kauffman’s Paradox of the Corporation: The less important you are to the corporation, the more your tardiness or absence is noticed.

* The Salary Axiom: The pay raise is just large enough to increase your taxes and just small enough to have no effect on your take-home pay.

* Miller’s Law of Insurance: Insurance covers everything except what happens.

* First Law of Living: As soon as you start doing what you always wanted to be doing, you’ll want to be doing something else.

* Weiner’s Law of Libraries: There are no answers, only cross-references.

* Isaac’s Strange Rule of Staleness: Any food that starts out hard will soften when stale. Any food that starts out soft will harden when stale.

* The Grocery Bag Law: The candy bar you planned to eat on the way home from the market is hidden at the bottom of the grocery bag.

10 Most Wanted

Little Sammy’s kindergarten class was on a field trip to their local police station. There they saw pictures tacked to a big bulletin board. The label clearly read, “The 10 Most Wanted.”

One of the youngsters pointed to a picture and asked if it really was the photo of a wanted person.

“Yes,” said the policeman, “the detectives want him very badly.”

So Little Sammy asked, while tugging on the man’s belt, “Um, mister, why didn’t you keep them when you took their pictures?”

Deep calling To Deep

with 20 comments

There are moments in my life when the light seems to be so far away, yet when I realize how closed it always had been it reach its greater potential thru my trusting. And all I had to do is call.

Is not an easy thing to live in this era where such darkness reigns thru the media, thru the arts, thru every corner I want to reach toward. But instead of feeling or recognizing (that’s a better word) any weakness without hope, what I learn to do is actually face reality completely which is no other than do best what I do and hope for light to reach my situation. That is better than only provoking negativity to fill the empty (jet immature) areas of my soul. When I am confident on truth, not facts, then all got in alignment.

To me, God was a concept for 32 years of my life. Now He is part of my everyday life. Without Him…I am what I was. Empty. He listened to my voice calling Him once, when I was tired for waiting on my own righteousness to get spotless. When all I needed to do is rely on His Love and on what He did more than 2,000 years ago. Enough. Free. Truth. Simple. Faith.

God is a very best friend. That to some sounds spooky or weird. Being spooky or weird isn’t that bad when you think on the other option. Dead.

And Life is soooo worthy to be experienced. So much great things God has in store for all who trust Him and follow His way. God loves us just as we are, and He then is waiting for all of us to love Him as He is also. He is a God of order, purity, holiness; never a religious God. NEVER. He is Love which means that He looks at us from that perspective, thru the adventure of Grace upon us. God is no mad, God is expecting for us to Love Him just as He is. God is Love.

God is waiting. God is good. He is Love. A Scandalous Love. He is sooo good.
