Your path will be full of moments in which you will have to overcome yourself, make decisions and learn from whatever comes your way.
"The one who is victorious will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out the name of that person from the book of life, but will acknowledge that name before my Father and his angels." Revelation 3:5
We always find ourselves dividing our lives in terms of absolutes and relativities. From good and evil, through sadness and joy, we can describe ourselves in an infinite duality of qualities that make up our perception of reality. By opposition we can also determine our current state of feeling by comparing ourselves to others. Would it then serve to put our relationship with Faith in these terms?
"Lord, save us! Lord, grant us success! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. From the house of the Lord we bless you." Psalm 118:25-26
As we feel loved by Jesus, we should never have to seek refuge in these comparative absolutisms, for as the Son of God, He accomplished His Divine mission on earth as in heaven, so that each one of us may enjoy full freedom in our hearts,
He carried out His Divine mission on earth as in heaven, so that each of us may enjoy full freedom in our hearts.
That oppressions may be banished from our bodies, as well as anxieties and uncertainties from our souls. Blessed are we and grateful we should be to God the Father to be able to tell the story that supports our life stories.
" I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete." John 15:11
We must remember the promise Jesus made in proclaiming his love, for this will encourage us not to succumb even to moments of our past times.
Nor to compare ourselves with other people we know and wish to imitate. We must only continue in the creation of our path, building our destiny of Faith and hoping that the Divine Grace of our Heavenly Father will be reflected in every action we undertake.
Without the need to interfere or enter into people's personal lives, we can discover through a simple exercise if they feel heard by God. Just by asking a simple question we will understand if on the other side, the person really gives his life to the Faith.
“Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.” - Psalm 100:4
"When was the last time you prayed?" With this simple question we must see the reactions produced by the features on their faces and above all listen to the answer they give us. We will be able to determine clearly if the person has a close bond with God the Father or if they have never felt the blessing of the Holy Spirit in their life.
They may refuse to answer. They may lie to us and generate an ambiguous answer in order to get out of the way, but in their interior this question will remain resonating and it is there when the objective of the exercise fulfills a new function: to question our heart and to mobilize a real encounter with God.
“or this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them" - Matthew 13:15
The relationship that each of us has with our Heavenly Father is unique and special. Increasing our dedication to cultivate our bond is essential in order to feel close to Him and allow us to enjoy all His enlightenment and spiritual guidance. Let us not allow them to rob us of our smiles and the hope of being able to move forward in this life we have chosen as fellow Christians.
We must repel negative comments and those toxic people who emit them, questioning our actions and discrediting our relationship with Jesus.
We must not be insensitive to these people, we must explain to them and show them with concrete facts why the Faith mobilizes us in extraordinary ways, but if these people are foolish or simply seek to defame us we will show them our kinder side. Just as our Heavenly Father would do with each one of his sons and daughters in his kingdom.
