I can choose myself!
YES YOU CAN !!!
In today’s world of technology and information, we can easily educate ourselves and make our own decisions.
Which we enjoy, and we should!
We sometimes think about and even consider the “religious” way of life, but are challenged by the seemingly odd or rigorous traditions, fanciness, reactionary and emotional behaviors we see going on in church, on television and even from folks standing on the corner or knocking on our doors. Religious practices in general have a proper place for believers, but many religions have become entrenched with human or “man” implemented requirements with narrow application or meaning. This can be explained, but for now, we can agree this is a reality and possibly limits many people practicing a “religion” from understanding the easiest and most basic information for a better Life. This may be the reason you are not looking more into the opportunities a spiritual Life can offer, but if you are thinking about how a spiritual life can help you, start with the simplest (and absolutely most important) information.
Again, make it easy on yourself, and it is easy. If you are looking for better things in your life, consider a “relationship” instead of “religion” when looking at the advantages of a spiritual life.
You may wonder now, as many of us do; “What can I expect? What will be better in my life?
The first things you can expect to change are:
peace for anxiety (get rid of the nervous feeling inside you that is keeping you from sleeping, enjoying your life and focusing on improving your life);
love for hate (anger begins to go away, frustration as well and you begin to experience happiness);
joy for sorrow (those things we feel pain, remorse or dislike over, fade away and we begin to enjoy looking forward to good things that are going to happen today);
faith for fear (emotional, financial, legal or anything we find we do not like to face, go away because we have a way, a tool, to help us stand up to them and even let them go);
goodness for troubles (now it starts to get exciting, good things start to happen immediately and we notice them more than the troubles we may be having);
temperance for lust (now these are complex words for a simple issue)
lust – knowing the obvious definition – is a desire for things we want with a passion and in this world there are many – money, houses, cars, vacations, and most things we see others enjoying, but are out of our reach
temperance – patience, wisdom and an understanding to desire and receive good things that will benefit our Life in the “right” time, the “right” way and to add quality to our life.
Now, you are ready to make a choice. You can see the benefits of understanding and accepting, not so much religion, but spiritual things and a relationship with them.
Choosing a spiritual way of ““ is a good choice and is a great first step. Then you can understand so much more about how to improve your Life, receive benefits, goodness, as well as peace and comfort.
The next step is very easy as well. Learning to understand, obtain and apply spiritual benefits in your Life starts with a simple belief. Only one thing, and you can use your own resources to study and research, but it will be clear, the one thing all these religions, religious sources, religious and spiritual people are talking about is Jesus.
You can surely find that He was a man that lived. There is plenty of evidence, and really what other story do you know of, that is talked about in almost all of history and even today in many areas of our lives?
Now you TOO can choose to accept this reality and begin to learn more about Him and instantly begin to receive the benefits of a spiritual relationship. Just know this and accept this, Jesus exists. Say to yourself – “Jesus, this makes sense, I agree you exist”. Then watch, something good will happen to you or someone close to you right away. It will happen and you will know it is because you made a good choice!
You can then read more to understand how a spiritual relationship with Jesus will result in even more good things, we call them blessings.
Now when you have bad issues going on in your life, just take a moment to say “Jesus I know you exist” and you will be helped!
This is a pretty long and comprehensive reading and it could take allot of time, sometimes years for you to start reading and understanding this, but if you focus on the easy information shared above, you will be able to eventually read and understand .In the meantime, you will be experiencing a life of good things (blessings) you could have never imagined. It will happen!
Lord, I pray this information was inspired and shared by You for those You have chosen to receive a better Life.
Jesus, I know you exist! Amen
