Sharing the moment

20130228-143742.jpg

I guess all i have is this moment, thinking reflecting considering where i could be, sensing what’s best for me.

Writing to you is my journey not that i’m trying to convince myself of anything as I’m sure about what matters the most.

I feel like I’m in another world right now, full of words written, suspended as i exhale…being present in the moment awakens a great sense of consciousness as worries and cares fades away, for at lease these moments.

I’ve touched levels of spirituality I’ve never known connected although in person my ways are still imperfect i guess that’s where Your grace comes in.

Our worlds revolve around what we love & the pleasure of those comforts, Often what i value is a mystery a heart hidden secret not intentionally but as life passes by…
i know as i’m also known so i can be free to proclaim.

In my faintest moments I see a blessing as I touch the unseen, the eternal, the spiritual energy of love,not just the affection for another human being rather the source a reality some haven’t yet discovered.

I have always felt I have a mission to fulfil but my life doesn’t consist of me alone however finding the balance is a challenge for me, for you, you’ve sacrifice everything for the world which no one could fault or criticise.

Again the journey continues…
Conversations with God.

All that remains

All that remains ~ is God the pen and me, surviving the aftermath, touched by sin.

I cried sincerely the result why I’m writing right now connected in diverse ways.

Am i free, from devastation shame and poverty, well my choices will determine that…

They said can anything good come out from this place, marred & disfigured no long represented on the map

What a place, unrecognised forgotten no longer considered given over to destruction

Where’s this place ?

In the north of the country a town no one would go or consider, The place called Nazareth where Jesus was born unexpected, the place where it was said “a prophet has no honour in his own home town”

Look & see….All that remains in Nazareth.

Even though I see

“Discovery Of Movement” explores the journey we all go through in our own personal birth of movement.
The central idea of the piece, is how the music directly affects our bodies and the emotional story we physically tell through it.

Even though i see

It doesn’t mean i don’t believe

I believe not because I feel

I believe, because some one greater than me, believes in me….

Many thanks to protocol for this video, God bless ~

Trust…

I was asked by a close friend to remember their concerns in prayer, as TRUSTING people often becomes a difficult task.

After some reflection ~ the wisdom of God spoke to me!

It’s Impossible to TRUST anyone if you haven’t learnt the secret of TRUSTING
GOD first

PROV 3:5

“Fellowship is life”

Confidence…

20130212-135945.jpg

The bible mentions a lot about confidence a subject I’ve been looking at recently. The notion I’ve always believed about confidence was very much about how I view myself and how this reflect my inner self, I guess this isn’t basis of a spiritual or biblical understanding.

So what does this word mean The English dictionary says:

Confidence

•A feeling of trust, in some one or some thing

• A state of feeling hopeful that events will be favourable

Translation from the Greek
Language
: parrēsia

•fearless, cheerful courageous , boldness, assurance

I like the bible definition from the Greek translation,Confidence being an assurance, a boldness, fearlessness to represent what you believe publicly & privately.
The Apostle mentioned something about this:

Phl 2:12 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling;

Just to add to that point, I’ve been listening to a very good bible teacher name Andrew Womack and he mentioned in one of his massages that we should live by the inner convictions.
The bible says let your profession faith be without wavering for he is faithful who promised..

The Law of commands isn’t the basis for confidence on any level, only Grace can produce that.
My confidence is based on the finished work of Christ

1John 5:14 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.

Confidence is like the example of faith, I believe it must be directed towards some one or something greater than ourself as we allow the God of the universe to take his rightful place in our lives the birth place of our confidence in him.

I remember this beautiful scripture a reminder of how to approach the throne of Grace

Hbr 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

The confidence we have isn’t about us. This invitation is about knowing Jesus who is the means of all fulfilment the basis of lasting confidence which inevitably will be rewarded…if we value it as a gift.

Hbr 10:35 Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward.

We know in part.. Be wise how you share it

Now the Bereans were of more noble in character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.
Acts 17:11

I guess we know this story well enough to know Paul & silas arrived at the place called Berea spreading the massage of the gospel however when Paul arrived he saw object of worship and this inscription saying “To the unknown God

In Athens Greek philosophers admired and loved these idea’s and myths unfortunately with no substance to their idea’s the people trusted in object in relation to worship.

What I like about the apostles approach as he address the audience he said, adding to there belief…

Act 17:22 Then he stood up in the meeting of the Areopagus and said: “Men of Athens! I see that in every way you are very religious.

The Apostle Paul empathised with the people as he spoke acknowledging their way of life. What i liked about this encounter was the fact Paul had also some thing to add to what they believed. However we must remember
how important it is to communicate truth with the right spirit which could determine how people respond.

Leadership & life coaching has taught me how important it is for me to add value to people through connecting

As Paul continues his speech
He says…

Act 17:23 For as I walked around and looked carefully at your objects of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: TO AN UNKNOWN GOD. Now what you worship as something unknown I am going to proclaim to you.

Adding to what the Berea’s knew only cause them to search the scripture all the more, checking if what he said was true.

To become so culturally root in any belief can be limiting because truth is eternal without any limits.
New ways of learning and thinking should be celebrated. I guess finding context or new context for any truth is powerful & life changing.

In conclusion

He sets aside the first to establish the second ~ Hebrews 10:9 This statement was referring to the legal requirements of the law no longer valid as he said ” sacrifices & offering I didn’t desire however & forever the system has been changed but the purpose of God remains the same….

Spirituality

20130219-154557.jpg

Hi there to whoever is reading this.
I often like to write based on my life experiences and new found insights on any level of life,faith and Personal development especially how these experience can relate to others.
Yesterday a post really open me up to look deep into my soul,the subject matter was about love… from an emotional or an action point of view, this subject is vast beyond human comprehension, I guess through any discussion every point would be valid as we know in part and speak with our own part.

Is love an emotion :Whoisbert.wordpress.com

Like any subject there are many definitions however for me personally speaking from my part…the tangible realities of any truths would only validate what I believe to be true.

This subject of Spirituality takes on different forms, depending on one’s background and schooling. Spirituality first is immaterial taking the form in values morals and personal conviction rooted in love and expressed through our daily lives.

If this definition is the surface then there must be other levels of spirituality, levels consisting of realities beyond values

What other levels might there be : The essence of eternal life, love, peace and relationships.

If relationships are spiritual here on earth might there be an ultimate relationship for mankind to access?
“The source of all relationships”

Spirituality teaches me that I’m not the some total of my existence I’m the by product of an unlimited source birthed to discover the light that represent life in its fullness, may be the ultimate relationship.

Religion help to find a connection but the connect must transcend systems of belief into vertical and horizontal relationship which should be expresses at different levels of spirituality which become evident in a relational sense.

In conclusion

What level relating to spirituality do you now find yourself?
This isn’t a subject of debate.
Whatever level or definition you hold never let it go however just remember other levels exist beyond our knowledge & imagination.

Eph 3:19 And to know this love that surpasses knowledge that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God….
