To Believe, Trust Your Heart
|If you are leading a life without God in it, I suggest you are
leading an emptier and more frustrating life than you need. Why settle for
less than you have to? I suggest you live the best and the finest life. That is
a life with universal love at the heart of it. Therefore try belief in God who
Belief in a loving God offers an opportunity to live a fuller, more
transcendent, deeper life that has higher spiritual levels and a broader
range of expressions of love and feelings in ourselves and for others. It
offers a wider and greater spiritual plane of thought and awareness. Plus
this is the sweet satisfaction your heart radiates from being connected to
the loving energy in God.
|True belief in God allows all the experiences of a normal life plus
elevating believers through the coronation truth only those anointed by
grace to believing in God can have: We have divine souls. There is
immortality in those who can be touched and wakened to it. Only by
believing in God through faith can the true, full and completed vision of the
totality of what mankind is be truly seen. Only then can we see our own full
stature, our potential and our divine capabilities. So if we would live
completely and enjoy the best and largest life we are able to have, put God
at the center.
|To place God at the center of life, we need faith. Faith is a shared
trusting with each other in a loving God bigger than our human
understanding. His thinking and ways are above the mental ability of any
person to grasp fully since persons are particles of life but God is infinite.
As the Auld Catechism says, God is a Spirit. He is the firm foundation of
everything seen and not seen, an invisible, unchanging energy of the ages,
a rock of ages from which life, faith and love proceed. He affirms these
again and again through grace forever and throughout time. If grace were
seen, we would constantly be awed by the sight of so many geysers of
God’s grace going off as we have everywhere, up, around and over us.
Grace is sparkling everywhere except in those dark hells on earth man has
made by choosing absence from God. Grace does not sparkle there.
|Consider then what you will choose to live by. Faith in God or no
faith? Is it not smarter and better to go with faith. Why not choose a life in
faith that affirms positively the love and grace of God who has delighted in
placing us in this handsome world? His gifts of living, love, earth, and each
other plus immortality are no small gifts for us to enjoy.
|But in evaluating God’s gifts to us, it is only fair to say that if we
choose faith, the children of God are not delivered from the ordinary
troubles of life. God does not place us in a china closet. Belief in God
does not usually lead to a violation of the natural order we live and work
under. The rain falls on the just and the unjust, the believer and the non-
believer. Nor has God given anyone an exemption from the irritations of the
flesh. But all believers do know there is a supporting and sustaining God
who walks with thee always. God is there for them in their joys and in their
sorrows. As a believer, you know if you live, it will be grace; if you die, it
will be glory.
|I suggest in order for you to live the best life possible that you
have God who is Love at the center. If you want to believe, trust your heart.
Helping towards belief in God comes from your heart. It lies in the heart
beneath the crusty surface of human personalities as uranium, oil, or
diamonds lie under the ground. Belief is there if study and prayer are
diligently made because God has placed in our beings a heart with a
special talent and singular ability, It is true Scripture assures us the heart
can be very wicked, but the thing we call” the heart” in figurative language
also offers special services of recognition that mankind would be hard put
and very strained to come by otherwise.
