Until we strip off our self-made disguises, we cannot recognize the true greatness of God. Man must look beyond any false promises of society to see the true reality of life, God’s Life, the Life that is eternal. We need to walk on the lighted path shown us, and we must act as true children of God and gaze upon the realm of God of which we are truly a part.
Jesus promises, “. . . whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” I believe this: do you? We can when we accept that God is the home of Truth, Life, and Love. God is not the provider of sin, sickness, and death. His realm is eternity, where all of these do not and cannot exist. God’s realm is perfect; there can be no downsides.
We live in this world of God only. What we call our soul is a permanent part of God and is, therefore, perfect without sin, disease, or death. Jesus proved this! I pray to strip off the disguise I wear; I am not anxious to leave this world, but I do understand that I can live in this world and remain a part of Gods perfect world. Every step I take to the Goodness God provides means that I am becoming more His child than a child of the world. Stepping away from material things brings me closer the God’s True Spirit.
And yet! I am only a mere mortal, subject to all the frailties that are part of this luggage I carry. But with the guidance of my forebearers I am able to be a strong part of God’s Spirituality. It is this that keeps me sane and healthy in my opinionated seventy-nine-year-old well-abused body. God has kept me in this world for a purpose; it is not in my realm of responsibilities and knowledge to understand, only to live and do what I can to share His Goodness and spirituality with all. I take seriously Jesus’s request as written in Matthew: “Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.”
