He Alone Knows Your Heart

He Alone Knows Your Heart

He alone knows the trials and the tragedy. The beginning and the end. The days you think you cannot move, the pain, the end of friends.

He alone knows the irony that life presents to each of us. The joys the sorrows, the mysteries, the seemingly awful way of things each living soul must endure.

He knows who’s heart is black, and sees the light of those so awfully pure. No there isn’t a perfect holiest of human beings, for no matter how we may try….

Evil pierces the infinite soul of each, even just a touch as he goes by. He looks for those who are weakened by the toils and loss of beloved souls. He looks from underneath a rock, and peeks out from deep holes.

He hides in forms that will be pleasant to the eyes, in the inexperienced youth, he confuses the instinct of good. He makes the appearance of something that should to us offend – he touches the senses, and undercover he will go -he prods and pushes just enough
to make us act, even though “we really know”…
What is wrong and right; we always know because that little voice from within, was not a fleeting thought at all, it was a gift from Him. For God never leaves us.

He gives us discernment to know wrong from right, not just a fleeting thought, a silly whim, or turn of the mind. We justify our actions, try to make right in the sight of God. We walk with heavy steps into the night- the capricious decision – we know it wasn’t right.

So here is the magic, just so you’ll know. You ALWAYS have the choice of what to do, and where to go. If you have made a decision that is bad and you know it, you won’t be shamed if you change your mind, the courage is within you to do it.

Just firmly say, “No this isn’t the way, I won’t follow the devil today.” Even if you say this in your mind and not aloud, God will hear your words, and your God will surely be proud. You’ve acknowledged His power and are projecting His will – He wants high things for you, and He will never leave you. Together you will climb to the top of the hill!”

When you choose the way you know is right, I swear that this is true, when you get “to the top” there will be a satisfaction you could never feel without His help and love. The elation of knowing He is within you, giving endless power from above – the realization that you were born because the Creator of it all wanted YOU! YOU were truly conceived of love!

You will sing and laugh and know each time you “choose” a path- you already know exactly what to do….the Master of it all, will always gently whisper, the perfect answer for you.

He alone knows your every thought.  He alone knows your heart.

Fearless

August 16, 2013

“Fearlessness means faith in God: faith in His protection, His justice, His wisdom, His mercy, His love, and His omnipresence…To be fit for God, a man/woman must be fearless.

…When hardship threatens we should not let ourselves feel helpless or forlorn, nor should we cry, “Why me?” The courageous soul will remind him/herself that adversity comes not to destroy or punish him, but to help to rouse the invincibility in our soul

The painful ordeals we go through are but a shadow. The Lord is very anxious to get us out of this troublesome world of duality.

Whatever difficulties He permits us to pass through are necessary.  We may never understand the “why” of painful events until the resurrection. If we fully understand this, we become freed from resentment and discouragement over our crosses. 

When you are a child, you have the problems of a child; but when you become an adult, you have an adult’s responsibilities and difficulties. Likewise, as you grow spiritually, your challenges increase. But know this for certain: THE LORD PERMITS NO EXPERIENCE TO COME TO YOU THAT IS BEYOND YOUR STRENGTH. NEVER DOUBT THIS. 

Nothing can overwhelm you unless out of doubt and fear you permit it to do so. Whatever comes, face it with patience and faith in God: “Lord, bless me, that I may find the courage to deal with this experience; and through it, draw closer to You.” Do the best you can, given the circumstances, and trustingly leave the result in God’s hand. 

God wants His children to be happy and fulfilled.  He aches for your full attention.  He will never leave you and He will be at his strongest when you are at your weakest.

Trust.  Keep the faith.  We are finite, so our understanding (for now) is limited.  Be happy. 

Remember “Nothing can touch you if you inwardly love God.” If you love God, your mind is always centered in Him. You are resting on eternal truth instead of being tossed about by the constant uncertainties of mortal existence. You become immersed in the stillness of the depths of the ocean of His presence within, where no surface storms can unsettle you. Then you have NO INSECURITIES—NO FEAR OF LOSS, OR INJURY, OR PAIN, OR EVEN OF DEATH.
