Always aware of God's Unconditional



In those moments of rapture, when we know ourselves to be held in God’s unconditional love joy is all we know and in the numerous moments of mundane life that depression, disappointment, worry, greed, envy, and self-doubt over take our joy and push from our awareness God’s unconditional love while still we are held within his arms.

Gratitude journals have become popular within journaling communities.  Some formats provide a page for each month to be filled with moments of gratitude, others provide a space in a weekly format to record the things we are grateful for and still others provide a space in a daily log.

And the power of depression, disappointment, worry, greed, envy and self-doubt to separate us from the joy of knowing ourselves held within God’s unconditional love.

If we lived always aware of the wings upon which we stand all of the books in the world would not be able to hold all of the moments of gratitude of one human being in one day.

I will pour out my Spirit


In those days I will give my Spirit to my servants, both men and women
Acts 2:18.

The Holy Spirit is not the exclusive right of holy men, no God pour out his spirit on all the peoples of the earth who through faith believe and

There are different ways to serve the same Lord, and we can each do different things. Yet the same God works in all of us and helps us in everything we do.1 Corinthians 12:5-6

The Holy Spirit brings to life each human beings their unique gift in the serve of God’s unconditional love for all creation. 

The Spirit have given each of us a special way of serving others.1 Corinthians 12:7

In this way we come to know that all human life is precious, necessary and it is not our sameness that God desires, it is our uniqueness that the Holy Spirit brings to life.

Thus it is that “the Lord will save everyone who asks for his help”Acts 2:21

It is our uniqueness that brings glory to God, we each have but ask and the Holy Spirit will fill us and joy is ours.  

We are all called, all are necessary in God’s sight.
