Speaking at church again today, passion filled me as I shared how key to my life from very early years has been my relationship with God and Jesus. I am certain it was that relationship that kept me going and kept me relatively sane. I am sure my little New Testament that I read and read and read again informed and led me through some deep valleys.
I took it to heart that we are to live as Jesus lived and taught. We are to love and forgive and shine our lights. We are to know we are connected to THE vine as its branches, so that the God energy that flowed through Jesus flows through us too. We are to take care of one another as if we are taking care of Jesus. We are to do our best to create a glorious place here in earth, "thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven" we pray regularly. And that's exactly what we are supposed to live.
If we actually believed what Jesus taught, oh what a place this could be.
