One of the most challenging parts of life is transformation. It can leave you very uncomfortable having you wondering and questioning many things in your life.
One of the hardest things I recently came across is the transformation of the heart. When your heart is transformed, it can be hard to turn back around and go back to what you knew and believed before.
A transformed heart is a transformed life, and many who lives have been transformed by the life and example of someone with a heart of love. Life can be transformed.
A heart of love is a heart close to the Lord. This person can transform many lives and make many changes within and around them daily.
Compassion and faithfulness to the right word make a person grow and transform with the love of God within them. Over the past few months, I have learned many are awakening in Spirituality and looking deep within.
When we encounter those searching, we open our hearts and minds to those around who are looking for more profound love. Many are wondering and asking where is God and never realize he is right next to us. He is always around, and we need to remember God is love.
When our heart is close to the Eucharist, our heart is close to our almighty. Who never changes and will never change, many are searching and looking, and we who are close to our faith need to have a heart close to the Eucharist to encounter those with love.
Making changes and running to and fro would not help us get closer to our God and bring more into a faith that does not remember the Eucharist. We have become very caught up in the world and forgot we are not supposed to be a part of the world. We who are Christians are called to be set apart to fulfill God’s word. We are one, and yet we are so divided.
This Christmas season is to be brought in as a calm energy. All the rush is not a part of my nature anymore.
The season of Christmas is joy,peace and happiness. It is also a time to prepare us for what is ahead in the new year.
Christmas is a time for family and appreciating those in our lives. Christmas is a time for us to remember Yeshua came into our world 2000 years ago and he will return as promised.
This Christmas I want to see peace,happiness and a true joy in million of lives. We are truly blessed to be alive in a time of such changes and transformation in our world.
The Holy Spirit is awakening millions every day to something more in this world and reminding us life is a Spiritual journey. In the end there is so much more to life than what meets the eye.
This Christmas I am hoping for clearer vision and more awakening in this world.
I am hoping for truth to prevail and scripture to continue unfolding in our lifetime. I am praying for Spiritual Intervention to take place in this world and the worldly powers weaken as more wake up and rise up for truth.
This is a wonderful season of cheer. A time to be hopeful of Spiritual Awakening and a New World unfolding before us.
This Christmas season spread joy, peace and calm to those around. As we celebrate the end of another year, another decade and the Birth of Yeshua.
Moses is one of the Legends in the Spiritual Universe. He has left a mark many centuries ago and his words, influence, leadership skills and mindfulness has lead the Israelite people out of Egypt and paved a path that many still celebrate.
Moses was born in Egypt and his parents had to hide him as a baby,as a order to murder all male babies was put out from the King. His mother who was totally heart broken with the command, made a basket and placed him in it and left him by the river to float away where no one can see him.
The king daughter saw the basket while having a bath commanded one of her maids to get the basket. To her surprise when she opened the basket she found a baby wrapped up in Hebrew linen, she was concerned for the baby as he was crying his eyes out. Moses sister who was standing watch, saw what was happening and offered her mother to be the nurse as she still has breast milk. The princess wanted to keep the baby and so she did, she named him Moses and raised him as her own.
Moses grew up and became a strong, courageous leader, who was destined to be powerful but in his heart he kept his teachings from his mother. Who was his care taken while growing up, he has no idea at the time she was his mother, as she never told anyone when she got the job.
At the time the Israelites was enslaved and being treated badly by the king. Moses saw this and it pinched his heart. He had a good heart, he always stood up for justice and this never went well with many in the castle. This eventually got him thrown out , when he got in a fight with a guard and ended up killing him. Moses was banished from the kingdom and thrown in the desert to fend for himself. He eventually found another family and stayed with them for many years.
One day while walking he saw a light and walked up the mountain to see a burning bush. He was totally amazed by this, and ask himself how this can be burning and haven’t reach the ground as yet.
Meanwhile, God called to him and he was astonished. God spoke to him and told him about the people of Isreal suffering. Moses was held back and scared but God ashore him he will be with him. God gave him guidance and assurance that he will be with him all threw the journey.
Moses set out for his journey and heading back to the castle to confront the king. When he arrived he requested for his people to be released. The king continually denied his request after countless sufferings that was brought to his own people. Unfortunately, his hardening of heart has made him absent to the request.
The Isralites was beginning to complain, they didn’t believe in him in the beginning. This was because they was being put to work harder by the king and their suffering was increased tremendously.
Moses sent numerous request for them to be released. The king never listened although his own people was suffering. God send many signs to let him change his mind,from the water in the ocean turning to blood, lice infecting the place with all the crops and food stock dying, hailstorm, locus, frogs and sores. The king refused to release the people and was very bitter about what was happening.
The last straw had come and God was sending death to the city. Every first born male would be dead. The Isralites prepared for this night by having lamb for dinner. They put the lamb blood on their doors as the blood of the lamb will save them from death that was about to pass.
Each Isralite followed this as they believed in God message. The night passed and those including the king who did not have the blood of the lamb by their doors, first son was dead. The screams and anguish was heard all over the city, people was in tears, women was moaning the loss of a son.
The next day the king called Moses, he was totally heart broken because he lost his only son. He told him to leave immediately and take his people with him because he didn’t want to upset their God anymore.
From that day forward the Isralites celebrated their victory as the day would always be remembered to them. That day was celebrated and called the Passover as that day was marked as a time to celebrate their freedom from the Egyptians. They was in total joy as they were free from slavery and ready to head to the land their fathers and ancestors left for them.
Moses was a courageous man, who became a leader and paved a new path for the people of Isreal. He never lost hope or faith, he is one of the many Spiritual Legands who made a mark in this world.
His work and his teachings will be remembered for eternity. He was a little boy who was about to be killed . In the end he was able to get his people freed and each year the Passover is celebrated in remembrance of this historical event.
The little joys found in decorating for the season of Christmas. This ranges from a snow man, to a nativity scene, artificial flowers or real flowers grown in a garden. Each decoration is unique, special and has a taste of a little Christmas Cheer for everyone.
Once upon a time on a Christmas eve night a child was in a orphanage who never celebrated a Christmas with any family or friends. He was bullied in school and had no one to call family. Each year he will look outside and see children playing with their new toys and enjoying the precious moments with their closest family and friends.
At that moment he would ask himself would I ever be able to experience a true Christmas the way I see others. He felt lonely, depressed and completely hopeless as each year passed it was the same story. One Christmas eve night he made a wish on a star , his wish was to be happy and loved. He wanted a family, a friend, a mentor basically anyone as he never knew what love is from the start.
In school everyone would share there experience or bring gifts for one another and he would crave to know what this feeling is like. He never knew what a hug feels like, a warm smile, receiving anything from anyone or knowing about a Christmas cheer. He only knew what everyone else told him and what he saw outside that window. No one ever opened a door to him for this season as he was looked at as just a orphan.
So, each year on Christmas Eve night he made one wish. Hoping one day his wish could be granted.
Traffic, last minute shopping with all the rush and little to no parking spots left you would swear its weekend rush. I am not running late with gifts this year but unluckily for me I had one more gift to buy and was caught in all the hassle today.
All the lights, music, food and decorations everyone loves this season it either has a meaning to some or it traditions brings happiness in lives. Christmas movies, children looking forward to seeing Santa in malls and making a wish list for Christmas morning is something that’s a beauty to see. Schools are closed for children in my little island of Trinidad and so many take this opportunity to take time with their little ones, some even get them involved in all the preparation. It was like this when I was young, I found myself helping with all the decorations, cleaning, painting, volunteering and heading Christmas events. All these moments became traditions that has passed along from generation to generation.
Now as a adult I still heavily participate in all the Christmas activities and appreciate this season more than anything. I also have to take a moment and be appreciative as so many do not have that privilege or cannot celebrate this season the same way . Many have lost a loved one, some are without jobs or unable to celebrate with a family member or partner because of distance. This can take a toll and can easily set a tone for a season.
My only wish for Christmas is that everyone finds happiness in everything and keep each moment special this season. Make traditions if you don’t have, smile at a stranger, play Christmas music even if its for 10 minutes, give a meal to the homeless or just relax. Whatever is planned I hope everyone find a little peace, joy and happiness. In the beauty of this season.
