Prayer is your treasure here on Earth! With it, you are never alone. Without it, it’s easy to get lost. This is why the wise make time for prayer. And that is time always well spent.
When God is enough for you, the doors of heaven open wide.
Who are the happiest people? Those who hear the word of God and obey. They are happy to bend the knee, happy to turn it over to God because they know, it’s that, or carry the weight of the world.
It doesn’t take much to become thrown. All it takes is to put the world before God. Over and over, we fall from grace, and over and over we are redeemed ‘as’ we pray.
Prayer serves as a reminder, that you are not God
Think of it… not a moment is the same from one second to the next. And that moment will never come again. This is what the mind perceives of God… endless change (time) within changelessness (eternity).
All have problems. But those who rely on God breathe easier. How? They don’t allow mistakes in the world to define who they are. Instead, they lean on ‘what’ they are and the worries of the world bounce off them.
Is your home life more sorrow than joy? This isn’t the way it’s supposed to be. It should be more joy than sorrow. If it is, you know. If it isn’t, you also know. Remember this… God is always with you. This is the bedrock that allows the hopeless to remedy their situation.
In eternity, there is no 'time' for anything to begin or end, therefore, past, present, future represent a linear progression that goes nowhere.
Everything depends on something. The leaf depends on the tree. The tree depends on the sun, air and water. They are only ‘part’ of the Universe. To depend on God is to know the same and be sublimely happy because of that knowledge.
The sad news is, those born into poverty usually remain in poverty. The good news is, these people are among the first to turn to God. The pain of life has made them seek for something better. When they find it, they are no longer poor.
Find your freedom in God, and have your heaven on Earth
To trust God means to depend upon God This is the reason children are content. They know, deep down, they are taken care of. To lose this feeling is the great tragedy of life. To find it again, the greatest recovery.
Those who choose God 'have' God
God is the cause that is 'cause of itself' (essence) and the Universe is the effect existing within the cause (existence). Essence involves existence.
A worried mind has forgotten God
Exchange the burden of the world, for the peace of God.
Dare to love God more than the world
The tree of knowledge is based on pleasure and pain; the ultimate reduction. From here we get joy and sorrow, the two primary emotions. Love is a form of joy and hate, a form of sorrow, but all spring from the tree of pleasure and pain, which all 'know.
Peace without knowledge of the cause of that peace is still ignorance.
