” And I tell you, ask and you will receive; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you”
We all walk our own paths through this journey of life, we all come to think along the way that our way trumps another, but there is no set way, there is no magic to the journey, just us being ourselves, without being of someone for who we truly are not. This quote by Luke can be taken in many different ways like we who walk our paths, but the true message of the quote means the same as the journey we all walk together.
True that if you ask for something it still may never come, but when you ask in the right way and with the faith of what you are asking, plus with a little work on your part, then that something will come to you at some point along the journey. Sometimes we ask for the most outrageous things than ask why we didn’t get what we asked? We then take to resentment of all that is around us cause we didn’t get what we asked, we become bitter of everything and then the journey seems as if it is against us. This journey just does not cater to one, there are many who walk their paths through this journey of life.
In order to find what you are looking for, first you need to seek. When we grow into this society, we first start from young, with no clue of what we want, or of what we want to be? We spend some time and some longer than others, to truly find what we are seeking and it all starts with, truly finding of who we truly are. A lot of times there will be things that come to us, or someone else that bring us great harm and pain, then through that pain we become lost along our paths, with the clouds of our judgments not allowing us to see clearly, we then hide deep within ourselves to keep from feeling anything, especially the love of Jesus deep within our hearts, we go on for the longest time trying to hide in plain sight, that we then start to lose a big part of who we are, which then extends to a society of many and then the society, thinks this is how it should be? Then one day maybe from a AH HA moment, or a sudden tragedy, the clouds lift and we get a glimpse of what could be if only we just be who we truly are, then the journey begins as we see clearly of all we are seeking.
Sometimes when we go to a friends house and knock on the door, there is no answer so we leave until the next time we knock, we don’t think twice when our friend is not home, we just think that okay……. he went out for a bit I will come back later. Now as we walk our paths through this journey of life and an opportunity knocks on our door, we go in the other direction, simply because we are afraid of the unknown, that opportunity only comes once and may never knock again? When opportunity comes knocking, you have to open the door to explore and see with clarity of what it is, but when you are hiding within and not seeing clearly through the clouds of your judgments, then you will never see any opportunity, let alone even hear the knock to open the door.
We all walk a path through this journey of life, the paths may be different, but the journey is all the same, we have all taken the difference of our paths to a new level within this society, to a level that we do not even help each other anymore, we are letting other things control us, instead of we taking full control of ourselves and doing what is right not just for ourselves, but for each other as well. We pass each other on the street and we can not even lift our heads out of our devices, to even say a simple hello anymore, we have become so into ourselves, that we can not see clearly enough through the clouds of our judgments, to even make good judgments of anything anymore. True there are clouds in the sky and these clouds can also bring foul weather and storms, it is also true that the clouds within us, that has us not seeing clearly along the journey, can also bring to us great storms, with great pain and harm as well, but as the clouds in the sky are out of our control, the clouds within us are very much within our control, we just have to get through the pain and hurt, truly heal ourselves, so we than can be of truly who we are, truly feel the love of Jesus Christ within our hearts, then spread this love with each other, so as we move forward on our paths, this journey can be full of peace and happiness for us all always.
” The clouds in the sky we may not control, the clouds within ourselves we can truly control to see more clearly”
” You need to seek to be able to find, but you need to see clearly to find of what you truly are looking for”
” We start this journey very young not knowing what we truly want, so we then search to truly find what we want to move forward of this journey”
” There are many doors throughout this journey, unless we knock we may never find the right door, let alone the right door to open keeping us moving forward”
