Welcome to the very first post in “The Pieces” blog! I am to remind you that I am merely a vessel, not a scholar, not an educator and most certainly, not an expert in religion, philosophy or any other higher truth, only what I believe to be true and what I am led to write. I am like a very positive and uplifting Ouija board, I am guided to share truth and the love of God with you, letter by letter, word by word, paragraph, photo, scrap of paper, as I am led.
Is it possible to live your life wearing rose-colored glasses? Can your optimism and quick wit make a negative day turn positive? Does this result in long-term peace of mind? Or is it – instead, a vicious circle, one of constant upheaval, ongoing stress in an attempt to ‘be’ good, make the right decisions and live longer?
I’ve learned that it’s not anything I do or say that strengthens my faith or provides peace of mind. It is my constant need for spiritual education and a heart anxious to know who her Heavenly Father is.
Psalms 39:7 …and now, Lord, for what do I wait? My hope is in thee.
2 Peter 1: 2-3 Do you want more and more of God’s kindness and peace? Then learn to know him better and better. 3 For as you know him better, he will give you, through his great power, everything you need for living a truly good life: he even shares his own glory and his own goodness with us.
I finally understand the purpose of being saved; it is to be God’s voice and heart. We are not just here to exist and live, God has given me tools and skills to have my life represent Him. When people see goodness in me, they are seeing Jesus.
Ephesians 2:10 It is God himself who has made us what we are and given us new lives from Christ Jesus; and long ages ago he planned that we should spend these lives in helping others.
