” The spirit of truth, dwells with you and will be in you”
Jesus Christ is around us in many different ways, I get it that, it is hard to believe in someone for who we have never seen? But when we keep the faith in him, then he will always be within us, when we need him the most. Jesus does listen to us with our prayers, I get that we may think he never listens, but with the faith, and when we truly watch for the signs, we will see that he does listen to us, as the signs become very clear all around us, Things we have never seen before and we think about then suddenly appear? coincidence? maybe, but more so that, Jesus wants us to see that he is there and listening to us. As we are walking through the darkness and suddenly see light at the end, this is Jesus guiding us along our paths, so we than can get through our troubles, and into a spot of peace and happiness.
We all flip the switch to turn on the lights within our homes, but have you really seen the electric current that goes into that lamp to give you light? No, we just flip the switch without thinking of the why the light comes on. This is exactly of how the power of Jesus comes to us. We talk to him by praying, then he sends us signs, so we know he has heard us. The problem with Jesus not being within us is, we have lost the faith in him, which is why we have lost the faith in ourselves, as the love of Jesus within our hearts, gets buried deep within us. The fact that a lot of us have not been within the doors of the house of God, in such a long time, has to do with the lose of the faith in Jesus within us, because we do not see him, like the current going into the lamp, he will power us up, he will guide us into the light, to move forward better and stronger, just that we need to truly believe in him, which then gives us the hope, as we move forward along our paths of this journey of life. While we are walking our paths of this journey, we are so focused on seeing the usual things, that we never see anything else that might be around us, we never step outside the box and truly see the signs that Jesus sends us.
When we look around, we only look for what we are used to seeing, very seldom do we pay attention to what is truly around us. This picture of these logs, shows a really cool stump, that has formed into a really cool design, now some may glance at it and keep moving, some may look while saying how really cool it looks, but very few will look and ask themselves, why was this put in place for me to see? There are many fascinating things within the landscape of nature, some may be because of the way nature changes throughout time, as some are put in place from the signs that Jesus sends us, when we pray and really pay attention to all that is around us, while we wait for him to answer our prayers.
Now I get that there has been so much happening around us this past year, with all the ugliness and the hatred that comes to us, through all this there may be things that happen to us that we may not like? Whether these things just happen or have been brought to us by another, they can have a long lasting affect on us if we let them, then when they take a hold of us, they will control us as well, they will have us not see clearly anything around and not see any kind of sign that may be in front of us either, even worse, they will turn us into someone we truly are not. Jesus is always there, no matter how bad we think things are around us, he will always listen to our prayers, we just have to not just believe in him, we have to have complete faith in him, so not just the hope will be there in front of us, but the signs he sends us, will also be there right in front of us to see. Just as we flip the light switch on and have light within our homes, without us seeing any current going to the lamp, Jesus is there within us, even though we do not see him, he hears us when we talk to him even when, there is so much ugliness around us. so when you flip on that light, let Jesus truly show you the light, as we walk our paths, through this journey of life.
” Power up, not just to turn on a light, but to turn on the spiritual light within us”
” Jesus does listen to our prayers for him, we just have to truly believe and see the signs he sends us”
” Jesus lives within us all, but with no believe or faith, we then bury him deeply inside”
