The Beginning of Miracles

In this mindful and crucified Christian life, we begin to experience many lessons about those things where we will receive help from others. Receive guidance and personal revelation from our Heavenly Father. Receive the fellowship and kindness that may have been missing in our own personal lives. Not only receive help - we also are compelled to provide help as directed by the will of God, through the Holy Spirit. Actively engaged in being of service to our family, co-workers, and those within our given community. It is because the reward of a mindful crucified Christian life gives us prime reasons and opportunities to express our own gratitude. We are no longer feeling abandoned, alone, or without purpose and direction.

Overcoming Temptation

Living a mindful crucified Christian life is one that is not easy. It is not merely a means of confession and profession of faith. Anyone is capable of confessing and professing Christ as their Lord and Savior. It is easy to proclaim one is born again and has tasted the new birth. Furthermore, many even proudly claim they are a new creation in Christ. Yet, when it comes to experience the wilderness of testing their faith - they wilt away. They faint and give up. And such faith that is not tested and refined is that which cannot be trusted.

Personal Reflection: When You Need a Light

What does it take to be the light? Humility and compassion. Willingness to put aside our own instinct to rescue them with faulty platitudes and shallow empathy. To sit with them and mourn with them. To weep with them. To comprehend what they are struggling with is difficult and real. To hear the song of their despair and embrace them in the divine love our Heavenly Father has for each of us.
