A good friend asked me, “If Jesus is continually in intercession for me, don’t I want to know what Jesus is praying to the Father about me?”
For the Christian there are no true intimate relationships apart from being in Christ. When all of our relationships are in Christ, then all of our knowing is of Christ.
There's only ONE relationship. We connect with people all the time, but even with all these connections, there is only ONE relationship in them all—GOD.
One of the major areas where God has relationship with us is in the working of the cross into our daily lives. It’s finding Him in my daily cross and experiencing His Resurrected Life.
I can be robbed of my life by not being in my Now Moment! Life is found in our moments. And what makes us a person is being in that moment, experiencing it with Him and those He puts around us.
Our present moment is home! Yesterday is our house from yesteryear and tomorrow is the possible house of our future, now is where we actually live.
Life's to be lived in the moment. Truly this moment is all I have. Only in the present moment can we experience our place of union and relationship with God.
In my quiet times with God do I have a shopping list that has to be filled by the Great Grocer in the sky and my payment is whatever gyrations He requires.
When I was young I received a divine message about my worth. But my question was, how could I believe that God does not make junk? I felt like junk.
There is one secret ingredient to any recipe that can make or break the taste. This ingredient is the secret of making all of life great not just a recipe.
Like an Arab merchant, we haggle and wheel and deal to get the best we can, all the while, the Lord just wants relationship, not a deal. Our gimmicks don't work.
If life is art, who is my audience? We all are called to please One, whether another single soul takes notice.
