” And when he entered Jerusalem the whole city was shaken and asked, “who is this?” and the crowds replied, “this is Jesus the Prophet”, from Nazareth in Galliee”.
*** Mt 21:10-11***
This picture was last summer as I vacationed in Maine, went out for a daily trek in the kayak and as I paddled into this inlet, it was this clump of roots that caught my eye and you can see a clear resemblance of the crown of thorns, for which was put a top Jesus’s head. When I turned into the inlet it was positioned right in the center of the water way, so as I got closer and focused what it was, I could clearly see the resemblance of the crown of thorns. You never now where your epiphany will come from, you never know where Jesus will come to you, or where one of his signs will come before you, he is all around us and we can truly feel his love within our hearts.
Within this Society today and all the ugliness that is around us, we think Jesus doesn’t exist? Only because we let this ugliness consume who we truly are, we then lose all faith and belief in Jesus, but his faith and belief in us never dies, his love within our hearts is always there, it is just us that don’t acknowledge his love that leaves our hearts cold, we are the ones in fault of all this ugliness around us, we just have to get back to believing in ourselves, so we then can have faith in ourselves and only then, will we truly feel the love of Jesus within our hearts, so we than can get back to believing and having faith in Jesus Christ once again.
Forgiveness is a very powerful feeling within us, Jesus forgives those who forgives themselves, when we don’t forgive ourselves as well as each other, this is when the ugliness comes to us the strongest, the power of forgiveness is within us all, but when we don’t know how to properly use it, is when our paths of this journey become in so disarray, that we then lose sight of where we are going and become lost within this journey. Jesus taught us of all this when he came and walked his journey with us, only being so far removed from this time, we get caught up within the status Quo of, losing all faith and belief in Jesus Christ.
Now that today marks the beginning of the Holy Week for all Christians and as the forty day journey of Lent comes to a close, let us all regain that true feeling of the love of Jesus within our hearts, let him come back to us, so we then can share this love with each other, so we can all move forward better and stronger along our paths of this journey through life. When the love of Jesus warms our hearts and souls, we will then come to find that, all the ugliness that surrounds us will disappear, there will be a silent peace that will overwhelm us and make us smile with happiness, You may still have a few that may try to control everything around them, but within this silent peace, it won’t be as strong and evident as it is today. Trust and faith in Jesus Christ will have us all believe in him, as we then will always believe in ourselves, through this belief comes our forgiveness of ourselves and Jesus’s forgiveness of each of us, without this forgiveness is when we become someone we truly are not and become lost along our paths of this journey through life.
” An Epiphany is a strong feeling that comes to us that we can’t deny, we all have these Epiphany’s just that we don’t acknowledge them when they come”
” Jesus sacrificed himself for each of us, so we all can move forward with strength sharing his love within us, with all that is around us”
” Forgiveness is a powerful feeling within us that when we use properly, will have us all walk this journey in peace and happiness”
” Jesus taught us many things as he walked his journey with us, his love is within our hearts always and all he asks is we share this love with each other”
