Christ GENESIS Chapters 1-11
beopentogod "Deep within us all there is an amazing inner sanctuary of the soul, a holy place, a Divine Center, a speaking Voice, to which we may continously return. Eternity is at our hearts, pressing upon our time-torn lives, warming us with intimations of an astounding destiny, calling us home unto Itself. Yielding to these persuasions, gladly committing ourselves in body and soul, utterly and completely to the Light within, is the beginning of Life." Thomas Kelly
polkadots The King met a beggar on a lonely road one day A strange occurance took place as you will see, That beggar fell upon her knees and she cried, "Oh, pardon me. I am unworthy in your presence to be." But the King looked at the beggar and He said, "You've been set free. Your sins are all forgiven. Now you're born in royalty." And now the King and the beggar are walking arm-in-arm,....you see....That King Was Jesus, The King of Kings and that beggar was ME! He picked me up, turned me around, set my feet on Solid Ground - God was the Best Thing that ever happened to me. I was in despair - I did not believe, but He was all "they" said and more. God is truly wonderful. It has been 9 years. It's worth sincerely giving Him a chance.
WMGRANT Matthew 6:9-13 (King James Version) 9After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 10Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. 11Give us this day our daily bread. 12And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 13And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
Steppenwolf I believe that a person must get rid of illusions that enslave and paralyse her; that she must become aware of the reality inside and outside of her in order to create a world which needs no illusions. Freedom and independence can be achieved only when the chains of illusion are broken. (Erich Fromm)
