Personally, to believe that I am one with God - that His Spirit and my own are joined in union, then I do not need to wait until death to encounter His Kingdom. The more that I become aware of who He is and what His provisions are, the more I want to live in that Presence of the I AM. Who would not want to live in His Kingdom, where one can experience....
- peace instead of discord
- love instead of detest
- forgiveness instead of blame
- grace instead of dishonor
- mercy instead of condemnation
- hope instead of despair
- respect instead of contempt
- faith instead of fear
Imagine that all these Godly forces reigned within hearts - what a different world we would live in. A fairy-tale world you say?? It can happen in my world, my personal universe, if I want God bad enough in my life to make a difference. It is possible to wrap yourself within the Spirit of God and enjoy His Kingdom, while the world rages around you in its turmoil. Every morning of every day is a fresh beginning - a fresh footing to begin anew in a force of life that the Kingdom of God offers.
Come, join me again at the Turn-Up Patch on Monday, October 23. I leave you with a reminder out of 1 Corinthians 4:20..."For the Kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power"....
