While most church history sites provide guided tours or historical markers for visitors, some contain little to no information. Yet where might we turn for more insight on these locations? How can we engage with these living sites and gain a witness of the Restoration? Dr. Mary Jane Woodger and her colleagues answer such questions in the book series Search, Ponder, and Pray: A Guide for Travel and Studies. In this episode, Dr. Woodger discusses the power that comes from being in church history sites. She shares how to use mini devotionals to think, talk, and learn about these locations like a church historian, and she details how such works can complement the resources and activities provided at each of these holy places.

It was inevitable the Electoral College would vote Biden in and the lawsuits would be turned out of court, unheard. You don't go to the trouble of fixing a nationwide election and without knowing you have the judges and bureaucrats on your side first. When you're staging a coup, the vast majority of the work is behind the scenes, securing the loyalty of soldiers and officials and media mouthpieces.

As the Dark Winter is upon us, Homeland Security is concerned with massive cyber attacks, Meanwhile, the media hides behind its lies and censorship as it refuses to acknowledge the dangers that North Korea, China, and especially Iran pose as cyber warriors wishing to attack us at our most vulnerable time. Coincidentally, President Trump recently fired the Director of Cyber Security, Christopher Krebs while there may have been a major cyber-security breach upon the United States.

Heaven invites us into a life of glory and fulfillment that is beyond what we could ever comprehend. Not even in Heaven will we fully comprehend the glorious mystery of God and His Mercy. From Heaven, the saints, radiant with glory and grace, look down upon us with love, seeking to lavish us with the Mercy of God. Seek Heaven as your primary and ultimate goal in life. Do all things with this goal in mind and the treasure you will build up for all eternity will be more abundant than you could ever hope for (See Diary #1592).Do you think about Heaven as your one true desire in life? Every act of love offered here on Earth will be remembered and exalted in Heaven. Everything we do on Earth should be but a preparation for the glorious day of our passing from this world into our eternal home. Ponder your desires and if the glories of Heaven is not front and center, be aware of that fact, redirect your focus and seek to place your eyes on this ultimate prize. As you look at the beauty and splendor of Heaven, the Lord will draw you to it with a burning desire.Lord, please flood my heart with the joyful delight of Heaven. Help me to keep my eyes on this goal and to do all in this life as a preparation for that sweet encounter. I love You, dear Lord, and have great hope in the day of our perfect union. Jesus, I trust in You. Source of content: www.divinemercy.lifeCopyright © 2023 My Catholic Life! Inc. All rights reserved. Used with permission via RSS feed.
Dottie Small is a role model to all whom she knows. Her mindset is that you are never too old and it's never too late to try new things and serve the Lord. In her 80's, she looks 25 years younger and has the energy of a 50-year-old! At 82, she started a podcast, Thoughts to Ponder. She has been a blogger for years. The Lord spoke to her that there was more for her to do to reach people. Her heart is to advance the Kingdom and to encourage believers to understand what it means to be a new creation. When Dottie began to walk in the power of the Spirit, she saw great change in her life. The Spirit opened her understanding of the Bible. The Holy Spirit leads her as she writes her blogs and teaches on her podcast. Dottie encourages us to “stay in our lane.” Don't try to do it all! Do one social media platform or one ministry at a time. Once you feel confident in that, then you can add another as God leads. We are never too young and never too old to serve God. Always have room in your life to help others in their faith and serve God no matter what your age. Run the race and throw off everything that hinders you so you can serve God and bring Him glory. Let our life align with the Word of God and hold on to Jesus. This will enable you to serve Him no matter if you are young or old. God enables us to do everything we are asked to do through His Spirit. God will bring people into your life to help you. Remind yourself that it is God who has a race for you, and He has plotted out the course. Thus, seek Him to see what path to take. And then depend on His wisdom and power to lead you.

God is hiding. But why? He hides under the veil of secrecy and silence so that we will diligently seek Him. He does not choose to compete with the distractions of the world since He wants you to choose Him as your one desire. Desire to seek Him, hidden in your heart, hidden in the holy Sacraments, hidden in the silence and hidden in the people whom you encounter throughout your day. The Lord is there, waiting for you to discover His Heart filled with unfathomable Mercy. Seek Him with all your might (See Diary #1591).Ponder the hidden presence of God today. Be aware of the fact that the presence of God is all around you, constantly calling to you and inviting you into His Heart. If you allow yourself to become disinterested or distracted by the world, you will never discover how close He is. Reflect upon His hidden presence and do not hesitate to seek Him today.Lord, I love You but at times I fail to live that love fully. I become so very distracted by things that mean little in the end. Help me to regain my focus and to seek You with all my Heart. Jesus, I trust in You. Source of content: www.divinemercy.lifeCopyright © 2023 My Catholic Life! Inc. All rights reserved.

World leaders say that Global Warming is a problem that needs to be addressed, however, what is most damning is their total disregard for how war machines, bombings, and depleted uranium make the planet a toxic environment and harm our fragile ecosystem. A recent study has revealed that the radiation fallout from the depleted uranium explosion in Ukraine reached England with a rise of approximately 600 ng/cubic meter in uranium levels in the air. Meanwhile, US scientists and military have simulated dropping nuclear bombs on Moscow and St. Petersburg to target Russian ICBM launch silos in a major nuclear first-strike exercise. The nightmare facing us is not Global Warming but Global Conditioning as the war-mongering elitists tell us that nuclear war will happen and that it is survivable. Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks with nuclear warfare analyst, James F.

Imagine the soul who has lived a life filled with complete abandonment to God. They achieved the heights of holiness and were not deterred by earthly distractions. Throughout their life they sought to serve our Lord and to be a continual instrument of Mercy for others. Many people were saved on account of their sanctity and their total devotion to the Will of God. Now imagine that holy soul entering into the glories of Heaven. What a profound experience of absolute joy! Nothing could be more glorious than that moment. But once in Heaven, is it conceivable that this holy soul will forget about those on Earth? Is it possible that the people who were loved and served so deeply would disappear from their minds as a result of being in Heaven? Most certainly not. In fact, once in Heaven, the holy souls who lived on Earth are even more consumed with a desire to spread the Mercy of God. Seek out these saints. Seek their intercession, ask for their inspiration, follow their example and know that you have a myriad of holy men and women seeking to serve you from the glories of Heaven (See Diary #1582).Ponder the saints this day. Especially ponder their burning love for you and their desire that all people receive the Mercy of God. God uses them from Heaven and continually sends them to distribute His grace. Open your heart to these holy men and women and they will pour forth the Mercy of God into your life.Oh, holy saints of God! How glorious you are in your Heavenly splendor! I thank you for your love and service on Earth and now I call upon your intercession from Heaven. Please pray for me and for all people that we may imitate your holiness while on Earth and obtain the glory in which you now share. Saints of God, pray for us. Jesus, I trust in You.

Do you ever feel like you're leading a double life, burying secrets that are eating away at your soul's health? Join us on a soul-searching journey as we share a stirring tale of duplicity and redemption, navigating the spiritual depths of Romans chapters 1-11. We're going to challenge the common notion of turning to God only in times of distress, arguing instead that complete surrender to the Lord can fortify our bond with Him and serve as a protective shield against life's secrets and trials.Let's illuminate the profound power of surrender in the fight against the destructive force of addiction, revealing how yielding to God's will can invite freedom, soul health, and a life filled with goodness and perfection. We'll urge you to seek wisdom from those who have surrendered to God and caution against the snares of false religious doctrines. Our discussion is sure to inspire a fresh perspective on the importance of surrendering your will to God's as the pathway to a fulfilling and purposeful life.We will also delve into the essence of daily surrender to God's will, emphasizing the cruciality of taking up our cross and entrusting our lives to His divine plan each day. Ponder with us Jesus' words about the danger of gaining the whole world but losing our soul. We'll end by encouraging listeners to kickstart each day with a surrender prayer, placing their trust in God's plan for their lives. Join us, and let's discover a deeper meaning to the act of surrender and its transformative power on our lives.

God gives to each person a unique mission. Some are called to very public lives; others are called to quiet and simple lives. Some are called to use their minds in powerful ways; others are called to use their hearts in special ways, but each person has a unique mission from God. What is your mission? Seeking to know what the Lord asks of you is essential to your journey of holiness and, therefore, happiness. When fully embraced, this mission will bring abundant fulfillment to your life because of one simple fact: every mission is a mission of Mercy. The struggle many people have is that they embark on selfish endeavors in life, failing to commit all their energies to the work of the Lord. The Lord wants you to work day and night on His mission. This is not too much to ask. In fact, it's what you were made for and the only way to obtain what you truly desire. His mission will certainly include moments of fun and rest, work and struggle, laughter and tears. It will also require a complete death to yourself. But it's worth it! Seek the mission God has given you and embrace it with all your heart. If you do, the Mercy of God will pour forth through your life (See Diary #1567).Reflect, today, upon this simple question: What is my mission in life? It may come to you slowly, over time, taking twists and turns as you go. But never stop seeking to serve our Lord and His perfect plan. This plan will become the delight of your soul. Ponder it and if you are on the wrong path, correct your direction in life.Lord, I thank You for calling me to a blessed and unique mission in life. I choose, this day, that which You have given to me. I promise to say “Yes” to You throughout my life and to never tire of fulfilling Your Will. I love You, Lord. Help me to love You with my life. Jesus, I trust in You. Source of content: www.divinemercy.lifeCopyright © 2023 My Catholic Life! Inc. All rights reserved. Used with permission via RSS feed.
On this episode, I'm diving into a hot topic in the world of teaching: making lessons fun and engaging. It's a noble goal, but there's a tricky balance to strike. How do we keep students excited about learning without sacrificing the depth and quality of the education they receive? This is particularly crucial in low-performing schools, where this approach is often most prevalent.

Ready to question some status quo? This episode kicks off with a rant on the friendsgiving phenomenon versus traditional Thanksgiving and toggles into the realm of fitness trends. We discuss how fitness fads, like the 'hot girl walk', shape the fitness world and the importance of fully enjoying life, including holidays like Thanksgiving.As we shift gears, we explore the evolution and downfall of fitness trends, specifically CrossFit. We offer a critical look at the rise and fall of this once beloved workout routine. Ponder with us the aftermath of CrossFit's transformation into a corporate entity and its faltering efforts to become a professional sport. We dig deep into the implications for the sport itself and its athletes, and discuss the importance of focusing on the truly meaningful aspects of life.The dissection continues into the world of sports. We challenge common perceptions as we discuss steroid use controversies and the implications of Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) deals on college athletes. As we wrap up, we share thoughts on self-care, motivation, and the importance of living a life that is true to oneself. Strap in for an emotional ride, sprinkled with laughs and serious contemplation. Our conversation might just change your perspective on life and fitness!https://www.instagram.com/fitperceptionspodcast/https://www.instagram.com/thomas_belliston/

Jesus said to his disciples, “Things that cause sin will inevitably occur, but woe to the one through whom they occur. It would be better for him if a millstone were put around his neck and he be thrown into the sea than for him to cause one of these little ones to sin.” Luke 17:1–2Having a millstone placed around your neck and thrown into the sea is very descriptive. Jesus is using very evocative language. A millstone was a large round stone with a hole in the center. If it were placed around someone's neck and they were thrown into the sea, they would obviously sink to the bottom and die. Thus, Jesus is clearly stating that this awful fate is actually better than the fate of those who cause “one of these little ones to sin.”First of all, it should be clarified that no one can actually cause us to sin. Sin is our own free choice, and we, and we alone, will be held accountable for our own sin. One thing that Jesus is pointing out here is that even though every person must take responsibility for their own actions and their own sins, we must also take responsibility for the ways that we act as tempters of others. We are all sinners. Therefore, by our sin, we will all tempt others to sin also. Sometimes we will tempt people to sin by provoking them to anger. At other times we will tempt others to sin by setting a poor example. And on the contrary, we also have the ability to “tempt” people to virtue. Or more properly speaking, to inspire and encourage them.With that said, Jesus explains that the fate of those who act as tempters of others, especially the “little ones,” will suffer consequences graver than an untimely death. The little ones of which Jesus speaks should be understood as those who are weak in faith, overly sensitive, particularly vulnerable at that time in their life, and susceptible to outside influence. This could be a child, or it could be someone who is currently teetering on the edge of despair, confusion, anger, or any serious sin. When you encounter people like this, how do you treat them? Jesus has a deep heart of compassion for these people and wants us to have the same depth of compassion. But sometimes we fail. We may be negligent in our duty to reach out to them. Even this negligence could be a form of causing “one of these little ones to sin.” Of course, it is even far worse if we were to actively agitate them, harshly judge them, provoke their anger, draw them into some sin of weakness and false consolation by our temptation, etc. The simple truth is that Jesus loves those who are weak, vulnerable and sinful, and He wants us to love them with His heart. When we fail to do so, Jesus will hold us accountable for their further fall from grace. Reflect, today, upon the person or persons in your life that appear especially vulnerable, sinful, confused and lost at this time. Who is it that struggles with anger, or an addiction or some sinful lifestyle? Ponder your attitude toward them. Are you judgmental, condemning, belittling and the like? Do you tempt them to fall further into any sins of weakness they commit in a vulnerable state, thus leading them into further sin? Or, when you encounter someone who is greatly struggling, do you turn to them with the deepest compassion and mercy, forgiving any ways that they may sin against you, and work hard only to be there for them in their need, no matter how hard it is on you? Commit yourself to a profound love of all of God's “little ones” and seek to serve them with the heart of Christ so that one day they will eternally rejoice with you in Heaven. My most compassionate Lord, You love the sinner and deeply desire that they turn to You in their need. Please give me Your heart of compassion so that I will be free to love them as You love them. May I never become an instrument of temptation for them to fall further away from You but, instead, become an instrument of Your unfailing mercy. Jesus, I trust in You.

Are you ready for an invigorating journey into the heart of early Christian history? Strap in as we embark on a voyage to the city of Smyrna in modern-day Turkey, a place once home to a small Christian population amidst a larger Jewish one. We unpack Jesus' letter to the Church in Revelation 2:8-11, where He acknowledges their tribulations and poverty and promises the faithful ones that they will not be hurt by the second death. As we pull back the veil, we reveal how some Jews of Smyrna conspired with Romans, a conspiracy portrayed by Jesus as the synagogue of Satan. This chapter is an eye-opener as we discuss these historical facts and their impact on the early Church, paving the way for an understanding of Jesus' words.What does it mean to remain faithful in the face of persecution? Ponder this as we delve into the lives of Polycarp and Dietrich Bonhoeffer, two faithful Christians who stood firm in their faith despite intense persecution. Drawing inspiration from Revelation 2:10, we reflect on the significance of standing firm and counting the cost. But it doesn't stop there. We further explore the power of prayer, the importance of repentance, and the value of active participation in our local churches. We all bear a collective responsibility - a responsibility to pray for Israel, our families, and ourselves. Join us on this inspiring journey as we uncover the richness of our faith, the power of our commitment, and the strength of standing firm against all odds. Support the show
There are many images we use to describe the Love of God. One such image is a “Burning Flame of Love.” This is seen in the spiritual classic, “Living Flame of Love,” written by St. John of the Cross:O living flame of loveThat tenderly wounds my soulIn its deepest center!Since Now you are not oppressive,Now consummate! if it be your will:Tear through the veil of this sweet encounter!Why do we speak of God and His love as a fire burning within us? This is a powerful image worth spending much time meditating on. A flame does many things. It brings light, it purifies, it consumes, it emits heat and energy, it draws us close, it is ever changing and ever new, and so much more. God's love must become not only a spark or a flame within you, it must become a raging fire of love, consuming your soul and producing, in its place, the radiance and divine presence of God (See Diary #1523).Reflect, today, upon this image of the Love of God. Meditate upon this all-consuming fire raging within you. What are the effects of such a living flame? What does it do to your life? What will others notice when this flame is blazing? Ponder this holy image and invite the Living Flame of Love to consume you from within.Lord, come to me and consume me with the burning fire of Your Love. Purify every sin and transform me into the light of Your grace and Mercy for all to see. You are a powerful Flame ever burning yet never harming. You renew me and radiate Your presence from within. I love You, dear Lord. Set me on fire with Your sweet Love. Jesus, I trust in You. Source of content: www.divinemercy.lifeCopyright © 2023 My Catholic Life! Inc. All rights reserved.

Immerse yourself in a profound conversation with Sam Abrams and Danielle Struppa as we set sail into the stormy seas of cancel culture on American campuses. Ponder on the essence of freedom of expression, the intricacies of offensive language, and the implications of a trending phenomenon that is reshaping societal narratives. We dissect the potential hazards of a justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion worldview that's propagated within our educational institutions.Our discourse takes a turn towards academic freedom, a principle that could be endangered by personal biases. We underscore the urgency for developing critical thinking skills amongst students, fostering a sense of media literacy from an early age to discern divergent viewpoints. Striking a balance in presenting varying perspectives during classroom discussions is deemed crucial, as we delve into the role of administrators in ensuring this practice.As we navigate the contemporary education landscape, we confront the challenges posed by decreased student attention spans, attributed to the allure of social media, and the need for instilling factual groundwork within the classrooms. A noticeable shift from a traditional academic standpoint to advocacy is scrutinized, with a focus on teaching students to think independently rather than spoon-feeding viewpoints. Listen in as we explore the role of technology in enhancing student engagement, the necessity of including historical context in the curriculum, and expressing gratitude for the enlightening insights gained through these conversations.Support Our WorkThe Center for Demographics and Policy focuses on research and analysis of global, national, and regional demographic trends and explores policies that might produce favorable demographic results over time.

Do you tire of speaking of the Mercy of God? Do you find that it becomes repetitive and unimpressive? If so, speak of Mercy all the more and ponder it with new zeal. You must never tire of the Mercy of God. The Mercy of God is so great and abundant that, in Heaven, you will see clearly how vast and wide it is. You will comprehend that it is incomprehensible and will never tire of contemplating its beauty. On Earth, you may find yourself tempted to dismiss Mercy as impractical and unimportant. It may be perceived as something old and outdated. When this happens, be reminded that this is foolishness and irrational. Understanding God's Mercy must become your daily goal and daily mission. You must seek it day and night and never relent in your pursuit of this unending and unfathomable gift of God (See Diary #1521).Ponder, today, these three simple words: Lord, have Mercy. Say them often and intentionally. Remind yourself that if you grow weary thinking about and speaking about the Mercy of God then you are failing to understand its depth and beauty. God's Mercy must engage your mind and will so forcefully that it is ever present and ever new. Its newness, especially, will help to keep you engaged in this gift and it will enable you to continually probe its depths. Lord, have Mercy, Christ, have Mercy, Lord, have Mercy. Say this over and over and realize that you can never exhaust this glorious mystery of love. Lord, you are never changing but always new. Help me to never tire of the simple yet profound truth of your Divine Mercy. Help me to always see the beauty and splendor of Your Divine Love. I do love You, dear Lord, and I pray that I may love You more every day. Lord, have Mercy on me. Christ, have Mercy on me. Lord, have mercy on me. Your Mercy, Lord, is great and glorious. Jesus, I trust in You. Source of content: www.divinemercy.lifeCopyright © 2023 My Catholic Life! Inc. All rights reserved. Used with permission via RSS feed.
EPISODE 272 - Benecia Ponder - Inspiring Authors, Creative Slumps and Tips To Build a StoryCoaching Authors To PublishSince 2006, I've been on a mission to help individuals just like you prosper with purpose. I am the best-selling author of six inspirational books of my own, and I've also helped my clients produce works that have generated more than $20M to build and grow their businesses and ministries.Although writing, publishing and marketing books seems like second nature to me now, it has not always been this way.I remember the moment I decided to write and self publish my first book. After receiving the inspiration and getting excited about the possibilities, I went into full-blown panic mode because I had NO IDEA what to do next. I spent a whole year paralyzed with the overwhelm and stress of it all before I finally reached out to a mentor for help.Why did it take me so long to get help? Well…I thought I could do it by myself. After all, I was an attorney with a law degree, a business degree, and lots of success writing for my clients. Unfortunately, all of that experience and expertise didn't stop the confusion when it came to writing and self publishing my own book.It took some time for me to figure it out and nowI'd like to keep you from having to go through the same panic and paralysis when you get ready to create and publish YOUR book.https://www.inspirationalauthors.org/___https://livingthenextchapter.com/ National Podcast Post Month is celebrating 16 years!

Do you find yourself in a whirlwind of thoughts revolving around our chaotic world? Like it bleeds over into personal parts of your life that it shouldn't? In this thought-provoking episode, I discuss what my shaman mentor Don Javier sees happening in the world right now and share ideas for how you can thrive despite the chaos and uncertainty. The main theme is maintaining inner peace and operating from a higher vibration to navigate external turmoil. The children being born today are coming in with higher energy frequencies, which we're seeing evidence of in the rise of autism spectrum disorders. To me, this indicates humanity is evolving energetically as a species. The challenge is that these higher-frequency kids often struggle to integrate into our lower-frequency 3D world. As bioelectromagnetic beings, we're influenced by shifts happening in the planet's electromagnetic fields. The erratic energetics of the poles shifting affect our emotions and stability. Staying grounded and focused on higher frequencies like love, joy, and peace helps counter the destabilizing effect. Profit motives, human ego, and fear-mongering drive much of the chaos we're seeing play out in the world today. The news media and big industries financially benefit from keeping people afraid. Maintaining the perspective that you're an infinite soul having a temporary human experience helps detach from fear-based narratives. Transformational Takeaway: During turbulent times, elevating your vibration is crucial for inner peace. Ponder how you can shift your perspective to come from your highest identity rather than getting caught up in chaotic externals. Ask yourself, "What would my soul be advising me to do right now?" and "How can I be a force of compassion in the world?" The more you focus on raising your own consciousness, the more you can positively impact the collective. VISIT THE SHOW NOTES HERE FOR MORE: https://www.jimfortin.com/295 LIKED THE EPISODE?

The glorious virtue of humility must be understood, continually pondered and continually embraced. What is humility? It is nothing other than knowing the truth about yourself, believing that truth and living in accord with that truth. Only you and God know the depths of your conscience. Human opinion matters little. Some may offer false judgments of you presuming your pride or another sin. And at other times some may speak words of flattery, exaggerating your virtue from impure motives. Neither false criticism nor words of flattery foster humility because they both have as their intention something other than the truth. Some holy souls may even seek to misrepresent the truth of who they are by either exaggerating their holiness or by misrepresenting their misery so as to gain the praise or sympathy of others. But, again, humility has as its goal the truth of who we are. Seek to know and believe the full truth of your life, and then seek to live that truth openly and honestly. This purity of intention will allow your true self to emerge, and through this humble act the Lord will shine forth from your soul (See Diary #1502-1503).Ponder today the truth of who you are. Seek complete honesty in regard to your actions and your intentions. Understand yourself and seek to know yourself as God knows you. Doing this will foster great humility. As you grow in humility, see also the truth of God and His greatness. Humbly acknowledge all that God does for you. Seeing God at work within you and honestly expressing this with gratitude will allow Him to shine forth beautifully for all to see. This is truth and this is humility. Lord, I desire to know the truth of who I am. I seek this truth and desire to allow it to shine forth with honesty and integrity. I pray also that I see Your greatness and acknowledge Your workings in my life. You are glorious, dear Lord. May this truth shine forth. Jesus, I trust in You.

In v. 1 of chapter 4, Paul exhorts believers to "stand firm." Pastor Josh Hall points out that it takes 3 things to stand firm: Hands (vv. 2 - 3) Heart (v. 4) Head (v. 8 - 9) In this continuation of his CHOOSE JOY sermon series from Philippians, Pastor Josh describes how our heads are involved. 1. Ponder - v. 8 From this verse, we see 7 questions to ask as we "ponder," or think about the Lord: 1) Is it True? 2) Is it Honorable? 3) Is it Just? 4) Is it Pure? 5) Is it Lovely? 6) Is it Commendable? 7) Is it Excellent? 2. Practice Practicing these things in our lives requires striving and discipline.

Is the pursuit of happiness a paradox? That was the question posed to students during a lesson while I was conducting a recent observation. A lively discussion ensued and I was asked to participate (a no-no for observations but...). The resulting student conversations left me pondering on the topic well after I left the classroom. What have I sacrificed to get to where I am? What am I sacrificing to maintain what I have? Was it .. is it worth it? --- Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/thecounternarrative/support
It's true that no earthly image can fully reveal the perfect love of God. God is transcendent and His love is beyond what this world can contain. But nonetheless, there are many things in this world that do reveal aspects of the love of God. One such image is that of a mother's love. Though God has been revealed to us as the Father in Heaven and the Son of God came as a man, we can discover much about the love of God from a mother's love. In fact, it is even appropriate to understand that God is like the tenderest mother to us. Motherhood is sacred because it is part of the natural design of God for humanity. He puts into a mother's heart a powerful love for her child, offering unwavering commitment. Though no mother is perfect except our Blessed Mother, it's good to look at the beauty of a mother's love when using it to understand God. The tenderness and unconditional acceptance of a mother stand out as two aspects that reveal the love of God. God does love you with a perfect motherly love. Though this may not be the most common way to speak of His love, it is of great benefit to ponder this beautiful revelation from creation (See Diary #1490).How do you see God? Reflect upon your image of God and rely first upon the various images in Scripture. But also ponder the many natural means through which God communicates His love. Ponder, today, especially the love that a mother has for her newborn infant. Reflect upon the unique and powerful draw she has and her unwavering commitment. The Lord loves you infinitely more. Always find comfort in this love.Lord, I thank You for loving me with a perfect love. I thank You for the gift of motherhood and for the way that You reveal Your unconditional and tender love for me through this gift. Help me to always know of this love and to seek You as an infant seeks a mother. Jesus, I trust in You. Source of content: www.divinemercy.lifeCopyright © 2023 My Catholic Life! Inc.

Imagine if someone gave their life for you because they loved you. They were put into a situation where they knew you would lose your life if they did not freely give theirs. As a result, they chose to step forward in confidence, giving their life in exchange for yours. In order for someone to do this they would have to have an incredible depth of love for you, so much so that they valued your life over their own. This depth of love may be rare but it does exist and we haven't far to look to find it. We only need to look at a crucifix to be made aware of this reality. We easily become so familiar with the Crucifixion of our Lord that we overlook the fundamental fact of His perfect love. He valued your life more than His own. He did not hesitate to die a horrible death so that you could live. This fact should not escape your daily notice. It is not some far away sublime idea; it's a practical reality that has absolute consequences in your life. Jesus' death is the only reason that you can live eternally in Heaven. This is an act of Mercy that should leave us with eternal gratitude (See Diary #1485).Spend time today pondering the Crucifixion of our Lord. Try to see it not as some far away event that has only an inspirational influence on your life. See it instead for what it is. Without the free gift of Jesus on the Cross you would be lost for eternity. It's as simple as that. His act of love was an exchange of His life for yours. The depth of His love for you is more than you will ever fathom. Ponder this truth today and rejoice that you are loved to such an absolute extent.Lord, I will never fully understand the depth of Your perfect love. In my small way I thank You with all my heart and choose to accept the total gift of Your death on the Cross. Help me to never doubt Your love for me, dear Lord, and help me to love You in return. Jesus, I trust in You. Source of content: www.divinemercy.lifeCopyright © 2023 My Catholic Life! Inc. All rights reserved. Used with permission via RSS feed.
In this episode of GoOD Friends, spiritual revolutionary Rainn Wilson sits down with Nikki to share about finding The Sacred in the day-to-day-- defining 'sacred' not as a place or thing, but as a condition-- an internal one of communion, and of holding Divine Light. He shares about everything from his Baha'i faith, to what God means to him, to how he prays, to Sacred root canals, Holy pilgrimages, and his spiritual practice during his time playing Dwight Schrute on 'The Office'. Finally, he guides us into the Unknowable Essence with a powerful meditation. Get 'Soul Boom: Why We Need a Spiritual Revolution' by Rainn Wilson (Nikki's favorite read/listen of the year) Get 'Hidden Words' by Baha'u'llah Get 'Help, Thanks, Wow: The Three Essential Prayers' by Anne Lamott Powerful Quotes to Ponder- "I bear witness, O my God, that Thou hast created me to know Thee and to worship Thee. I testify, at this moment, to my powerlessness and to Thy might, to my poverty and to Thy wealth. There is none other God but Thee, the Help in Peril, the Self-Subsisting." -Bahá'u'lláh (an Arabic title meaning The Glory of God) "Know thou that the Kingdom is the real world, and this nether place is only its shadow stretching out. A shadow hath no life of its own; its existence is only a fantasy, and nothing more; it is but images reflected in water, and seeming as pictures to the eye." – Abdu'l-Baha via Soul Boom by Rainn Wilson “ "The temple bell stops But the sound keeps coming out of the flowers” -Matsuo Bashō (via Soul Boom by Rainn Wilson) “The most beautiful and profound emotion we can experience is the sensation of the mystical. It is at the root of all true science. That deeply emotional conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power which is revealed in the incomprehensible Universe is my idea of God.”- Albert Einstein via Soul Boom by Rainn Wilson “He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.” -Albert Einstein via Soul Boom by Rainn Wilson
Do you feel pressured to convey a certain image because of what others expect of you? Are you afraid to disappoint others, so you hide your honest opinions and thoughts so that you can be accepted? Are you angry because you feel pushed around by others, but you haven't been honest with others or even with God about it? You're not alone. You're in a huge club called “The People Pleasers.” What is a people pleaser? According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, it's "a person who has an emotional need to please others often at the expense of his or her own needs or desires." We can't get over our issues with people pleasing when we don't understand why we're doing what we're doing. This is not a light matter, and while I can only scratch the surface in this brief episode, I encourage you to ask God to search your heart to uncover deeper things that may be going on. We have reasons for doing whatever we do, and when it comes to people pleasing, guilt, shame, fear, and a lack of trust in God are on the list. At the end of this episode, take some time to pray and ask the Lord to show you what's going on in your heart and let Him help you. God's way is perfect. Ours is flawed. Let's consider four signs that you may be a people pleaser, followed by suggestions on what to do about it.
