A love that is sacred is a choice and a commitment to holiness…
To be set apart for the one chosen for you,
To obtain the graces and blessings of the heavens,
The coming together of two individuals as one,
Knowing love for love, and not as lust,
The mutual giving of oneself to another in an act of sacred union, and not of sex,
And the profound experience of a soul connection that transcends any form of physical attraction.
Can you fathom the pain of seeing someone you love be lost in this world, and caught in the snares?
To know that there is nothing that you can do but pray, for it a choice he/she made for him/herself…
Beloved humans, how long must you be deceived by the lusts of this world, when you can choose to live in the abundance and presence of your Maker?
Ultimately, the greatest challenge of a Christian is repentance, for true repentance entails fear and renouncement of sins.
Faith is not just the knowledge of God; it is the complete trust in, and obedience to God.
A mortal being…
Never to be repeated in any lifetime.
A living soul…
Walking the journey of humanity.
A child of God…
An immortal soul,
Redeemed and restored
By the One True Savior.
A being of light…
Awakened, called to Purpose
A warrior in the army of love.
Magic is real, and it is found within. Believe in yourself!
If you don’t feel loved, look at the Cross.
If you feel rejected or betrayed, look at the Cross.
If you feel empty and hopeless, look at the Cross.
The absolute horror of the Cross depicts an unfathomable love.
True love, the perfect love of God for us, is revealed through the Cross.
– Christine Watkins, Mary’s Mantle Consecration
In moments of contemplation, look at the cross and ask yourself…
What does it mean to me when Jesus Himself said that to follow Him one must carry his or her own cross?
What reason do I have to refuse love?
What excuse do I have for withholding mercy?
There’s nothing that anyone possesses in this world, nor accomplishes and attains in life that he or she can truly take credit for other than his or her own sins.
All that is good are graces of God who, out of love and compassion, sustains each and every one of us.
God, grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
The courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time, enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace,
Taking, as Jesus did, this sinful world as it is,
Not as I would have it;
Trusting that You will make things right if I surrender to Your will.
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life, and supremely happy with You in the next.
– Reinhold Niebuhr
