Daily Word - Sister and Brother

From The Echota Cherokee Tribe Of Alabama

You are my sister, you are my brother because we were born of the same Great Spirit; conceived from the same mound of Earth; slept quietly together in the cradle of unknowing until He,in His gentleness set us in the midst of humanity ...
You are my sister, You are my brother ...
I Love You.
You and I are destined to be companions on the path of life... Together or apart. If the colour of my skin is different from yours, it matters not, only let the beauty of our souls be kindred...
You are my sister, You are my brother ..
I Love You.
I will honour your wisdom and understanding, as you will mine. Together we shall seek the seeds of truth in the distant rooms of the Great Spirit; the reflection of inner knowledge shall wear as beauty upon our faces ...
You are my sister, You are my brother ...
I Love You.
I will be human and fall down in rough places, but thy hand is near mine. I will reach for it . I shall not be alone, I will embrace you when the rains of sorrow visit you; I will befriend your soul as if it my own.
You are my sister, You are my brother ...
I Love You.

Daily Word - Divine Order

In sync with divine order, I realize my greatest potential.


There is a spiritual law and order that governs all life. Nothing and no one can break this law.

When acting out of alignment with divine order, I might struggle with minimal success to accomplish even the smallest of goals. Yet when I consciously align my will and actions with the natural, orderly outworking of the Universe, I tap into a fountainhead of limitless imaginative and creative power. Spirit, which by nature is expressive, enfuses me with a rich supply of divine ideas uniquely suited to my soul.

As I willingly surrender to the flow of Spirit, I experience synchronous events as an everyday occurrence. I realize my greatest dreams with absolute peace, grace, and ease.

My life is in sync with divine order.


Great peace have those who love your law; nothing can make them stumble.—Psalm 119:165

You

If you had lived in Gatlinburg and had 100% foreknowledge of the pending fire, would you have warned anyone? More than likely, your answer is a resounding yes!

However, we have 100% foreknowledge of a pending horrific and eternal fire, which Jesus spoke more about than anyone in the Bible. For the most part, we’ve chosen to be silent and not warn our friends, relatives, associates, and neighbors.

In Luke 16:19-31, Jesus gives us the most vivid description of hell found anywhere in the Bible. This story is NOT about poverty and riches! It's about choices!
The man in hell:
Requested water to cool his tongue due to the torment of the flames. He was physically in a hot place!
He had a view into heaven and conversed with Abraham.
Abraham reminded him of the eternal separation.
He was concerned about the eternal destination of his five brothers.
He was so desperate on behalf of his brothers and asked for "someone from the dead" be sent to warn them.
He was reminded that if his brothers did not listen to Moses and the prophets, they would not listen to someone from the dead.

Jesus spoke of hell so frequently, because he does NOT want anyone to go to hell. "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16

Hell was created for the devil and his angels only! (Matthew 25:41) Everyone who goes to hell will be there by personal choice and will trample through the blood of Jesus in order to go to hell.

Why have we chosen to be silent regarding this topic? According to several sources of research, 50% of church-attending folks do not believe in a literal hell or a literal Satan.

"And do this, understanding the present time. The hour has come for us to wake up from our slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. The night is nearly over; the day is almost here." Romans 13:11

Today's Word - Magic

When I was younger I was entranced with stories of magic. I devoured books where wizards and warriors battled the powers of darkness in strange worlds. I rejoiced when they triumphed bringing peace and happiness to their lands. I guess like most of the readers of these stories I secretly wished for magical powers for myself. I wanted to be able to magically make my pain disappear, to make my problems go away, and to have power over this world that so often has power over us.

As I got older, however, I realized that there was no such thing as magic and the harsh reality of life set in. I struggled through a long period of poverty. I had daily pain from a back injury that never healed right. I felt sadness and sorrow when both of my sons were diagnosed with Autism. I still sometimes daydreamed of magic but in time even that faded away.

Then one day I am not sure when I began to discover a different kind of magic. This magic grew stronger in my heart, soul, and mind day by day and year by year. This magic was called LOVE. This magic connected me to God, because God is love. It also connected me to my own highest self and to all of the other souls in this world. It didn’t eliminate my poverty but it made every day of my life feel richer. It didn’t make my back pain go away but it helped me deal with it so much better. It didn’t cure my sons’ Autism, but it helped me see them as the beautiful, loving, eternal, and joyful souls that they truly are. It didn’t make me a wizard or a warrior but it helped me to dispel the darkness of this world with my own light.

There is such a thing as magic in this world. There is such a thing as magic in each one of us. This magic is called LOVE. May you choose it, share it, and live in it every single day of your life. May you use it to help others, to heal this world, and to build a bridge to Heaven.

Daily Word - Wonder

I am unique, beautiful, and wonderfully made.


When I look into the eyes of a child, I see wonder, excitement, and a questioning spirit. Everything a child sees is remarkable and unique.

I try to see my own world through this lens of newness. The sound of laughter, the glisten of frost or dew in the morning sunlight, the people I meet … all are reminders of the creative power of the universe.
I, too, am a wonder. I am unique, beautiful, and wonderfully made. I look around and see beauty in everyone and everything I encounter. I am grateful for the ability to recognize the uniqueness of the world in which I live.

Each day opens to new experiences, thoughts, and wonders.


I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; that I know very well.—Psalm 139:14

Daily Word - Guidance

I open my mind to the light of my being and answers are revealed.


When there are life-changing decisions to make, I keep my mind open to divine guidance. I am not alone in any time of decision-making.

There is the light within me that shines the wisdom of God on right choices. This light is mine each time I open my mind to the all-knowingness of God.

I may wonder how I can keep centered and calm when there are so many last-minute items on my to-do list. I begin by changing my focus from worry to divine guidance and feel immediate relief. My mind is clear of clutter, and I’m ready to follow where I am guided, which in truth was always available to me.
The wisdom of God is my guide, each day, each step of the way.


But anyone united to the Lord becomes one spirit with him.—1 Corinthians 6:17
