Me, Me, Me, Me, Me!!!

Standard

I keep reading about finding myself — knowing who I am and what I want in life. Many of us are in search for answers to life’s hardest questions. We don’t understand what to think in a world of philosophies ready to be grasped. It’s really quite easy…we just need to keep looking among the myriad philosophies of man to find the one that best suits our desires because…really…it’s all about what we desire….right?

I’m feeling nauseous thinking about all the not-so-subtle illusions of creating our own gods.

So many are doing it.
Why can’t I?

Sure. Yes. Go right ahead.
Create your own sacred space.
Commune with the moon…
Be your own voice of wisdom.
Find your own unique path to god because that’s what he told us to do.

Can you see it?
That’s what he told us to do.

Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made.
He said to the woman, “Did God really say, …?”

“You won’t die!” the serpent hissed.
For God knows that in the day you eat it your eyes will be opened,
You will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

Eat that sweet morsel of forbidden fruit.
Go ahead.
It won’t kill you!

And so we partake. We reach out and look at the beauty of the philosophy we so desperately want to believe is Truth.
But, it’s not. It’s a lie. The oldest of lies.

We are not our own god.
We are not goddesses in need of enlightenment.
We do not need to develop our own sacred space to find peace in this world.

The Sacred is in us.
His Holy Spirit resides in us.

The mystery in a nutshell is just this:

Christ is in you,
therefore you can look forward to sharing in God’s glory.
It’s that simple.
That is the substance of our Message.

So why do we look further?
Why do we try to create beyond The Creator?
Are we still listening to the crafty god?

“My god wouldn’t…
My god says to me…
My god wants me…

That’s not my god, the god I serve wouldn’t say  fill in the blank…”

Go ahead,
Choose the god you desire,
but know this:

The God of the Universe is not bound by us.
We do not get to create Him in our image.
He created us, not the other way around.

Get to know Him.
He revealed Himself from Genesis to Revelation.
He has sent His Word for us to see The Truth.

So the Word became human and lived here on earth among us.
He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness.
And we have seen His glory, the glory of the only Son of the Father.

At the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW,
of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue will confess that
Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Jesus is our Sacred Space.

In Him all the fullness of God dwelled in bodily form.

Through His Spirit we have become partakers of the Divine Nature.

In no other god will you find Life.

  1. Amen, Amen, Amen! Great uplifting post Michelle. The truth rings loud and clear and just frees my soul and gives me a joy this morning beyond all the struggles of life!

  2. I’m so glad it spoke to you, Punkin, and that you found it uplifting. I wasn’t sure how others might hear it. And, as you say, it is freeing to hear the truth. Joy does come when we set our minds on Him. Love you!

  3. Sounds to me like you got it just right Sis ( as always – well most times 😉 ) While He is in Us and we in Him though, pretty much all of the times we are in a strong emotion (including ‘Love’) there is so much of who we are/think in ‘us’ that it tends to drown out our awareness of His Presence and we end up acting in a far less than Christ-like manner.

    There is a heck of a lot we all need to ‘let go of’ before we can even begin to act in anything remotely close to how He would in our situation.

    And – so far – i am doing Pretty good – for a human. Still lousy (lazy) as a Christian! 🙂

    So nice to ‘hear’ from you – i pray some (if many is too much to Hope for?) things in life are going well for you?

  4. Hey, BB! I am so glad to hear from you! When you drop out of blogland, I get a bit worried. 😕

    “…there is so much of who we are/think in ‘us’ that it tends to drown out our awareness of His Presence and we end up acting in a far less than Christ-like manner.”

    Yes, sir! We want what we want when we want it… we are self-centric. We see from our perspective unless we purposefully keep our minds on Him.

    You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, whose thoughts are fixed on you!
    ~Isa. 26:3

    When I keep my focus on Him, even the toughest moments become holy moments. His presence permeates the situation and I can think clearly. When I don’t…well, it’s not so pretty. … O.o

    Thanks for coming over to say “hi”…

    Love you much, Brother Bob!
    😉
