As I grow spiritually, true and mindful prayer becomes my confession of absolute dependence on my Heavenly Father. It is a vital contact with Him on a day-to-day basis in order to experience His presence from moment-to-moment. It is when I fully commit to mindful and meditative prayer where I truly find peace, receive personal revelation, wisdom and counsel to apply to those problems and difficulties I face.
I am only responsible for learning to judge my own motives, to evaluate my own actions, in order to bring them in line with what God’s standards and ideals are. This is accomplished little by little as I continue to seek His will and guidance.
Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.~ Ephesians 4:29, KJV ~ I am not able to hurt others without first hurting myself. This is a compelling reason for taking responsibility for my own thoughts before…
I find such relaxed – and relaxing counsel – through my Heavenly Father’s wisdom for just today. My reminder is to focus on just today and live through this day only. Not attempt to tackle all my problems at once. I am only able to do smaller things and focus on those smaller steps and not attempt to resolve all problems in one day.
True Christian spirituality is the foundation of a strong and resilient faith. Ever reminding me to place principle truths above all others. The tradition of spiritual giants I encounter in God’s word gives me the guiding light of a true authentic Christian spiritual path to grow and mature. I strive to do my best to live and keep in mind, at all times, the secret of authentic Christian living.
I will attempt to clear out of my life and my mind all the destructive tools previously used. I know they do nothing to bring me to a life with peace of mind and experience an abundant and fruitful life in Christ. I will strive to learn to use the whole armor of God. I will strive to focus on being kind, patient, courteous, and show the love of Christ and our Heavenly Father. With a strong faith and determination, I will do what is necessary to improve my life.
There are going to be emotional conflicts we have to deal with every day. Our relationships will have significant impact. How we view life and all things around is will take on whole new meanings. Yet, if we remain at a standstill expecting our problems sufferings will miraculously disappear we will experience disappointment and resentment toward God.
