Chapter 8: The Building Blocks of Understanding

Chapter 8: The Building Blocks of Understanding

Learning to read the unseen word of God does not come easy as it is not something that is commonly taught and as such, most people tend to revert to their old ways of reading the Bible. It’s like a default setting where you return instinctively to what you know and is familiar. It requires a practiced art of remember that what you are reading is also a reflection of yourself, with deeper spiritual significances that are hidden in the symbolic meanings of each person, place, and thing of the Holy Scriptures. So as you build up your spiritual house of understanding and grasp onto these new concepts of truth, consider them to be as building blocks of information. By seeing this as structured like a building project you will soon begin to understand the deeper secrets of life that often elude us…

(Trust Is The Key To Hope) Post for Day 165 of my “365 Day Photo Challenge”

Yesterday’s the past, tomorrow’s the future, but today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present.

Bil Keane

 

Trust is the key of hope that unlocks the past and opens the way to the future.

 

Psalms 56:3 What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.

 

(Seeing God) Post for Day 164 of my “365 Day Photo Challenge”

Tranquil Like water which can clearly mirror the sky and the trees only so long as its surface is undisturbed, the mind can only reflect the true image of the Self when it is tranquil and wholly relaxed.

Indra Devi

 

Only in calm self-reflection can the image of God be seen.

 

Luke 8:24 And they came to him, and awoke him, saying, Master, master, we perish. Then he arose, and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water: and they ceased, and there was a calm.

(Handle With Care) Post for Day 163 of my “365 Day Photo Challenge”

If you are careful with people, they will offer you part of themselves. That is the big secret.

Eve Arnold

 

People are often prickly to those that they think may cause them harm. But only those that handle with care will reap the blossom that grows amongst the thorns.

 

Matthew 25:35-40 For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’

 

Judging a Book by Its Cover

Have you ever look at a person and thought you could judge exactly what that person was like? Or heard a friend or acquaintance speak of another person often enough that you felt you knew the whole story and how that person is?

It is a part of our human nature to do so. It’s almost as if it’s a defense mechanism put in place to keep us safe. For example, a woman walking down the street alone needs to be aware of those around her and able to make “the call” as to whether the stranger coming toward poses a threat or not. It’s sad but true.

We are even instructed to be discerning:

But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. ~Hebrews 5:14

RosewaterSo, I’ve been playing.

Yesterday was an impromptu day off for me, and I finally got down to some things I’ve been wanting to do.

First on the list was making some more rose water. I have to admit that the first batch I had made sat in the fridge too long for my liking. That is the one caveat to working with natural ingredients….they have an expiration date. So, I sadly dumped my previous bottle of rose water down the sink and started another batch. Several hours later, I had what I needed and didn’t waste any time!

My first item of business was my toner that I’ve been using. This is an item that I haven’t marketed in my shop, just because of the shelf life. When working with a water-based ingredient, it adds a whole new aspect to the longevity of the product. And while I keep…

(The Weight Of Oppression ) Post for Day 162 of my “365 Day Photo Challenge”

ca46a9ea-f3f6-4234-843f-8527714f348b

Unnecessary possessions are unnecessary burdens. If you have them, you have to take care of them! There is great freedom in simplicity of living. It is those who have enough but not too much who are the happiest.

Peace Pilgrim

 

The weight of our oppression is only measured by the importance you give it.

 

Matthew 11

29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

 

Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.

Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

John 15:4-5

Chapter 7: Who Is Your Temple Dedicated To?

soulblindministry:

Today we will look at our dedication of our understanding. To whom does the glory go?

Who Is Your Temple Dedicated To?

A Temple Dedicated to One

 

1 Corinthians 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? (You are more than one)

The building up of the Temple of God is a process that is developed over time and it doesn’t happen all at once. It is a process of breaking down misconceptions that you have built up over the years with your ideals and beliefs that create your judgments of self and others. The Temple of God is not the Temple of You, and it is not based on personal misconceptions, but it is rather built up on solid truths. It is established on a series of understandings that are universally beneficial to yourself and to the others around you. I…

(Self-Importance Is Madness) Post for Day 161 of my “365 Day Photo Challenge”

31166fb0-256e-4eed-bf84-93e0cdbd4d92[1]

In madness, I thought I was the most important person in the world.

John Forbes Nash, Jr.

 

The croaking of madness drives men to believe they are the most important person in the world. If you serve only yourself, then you serve a false king.

 

Psalms 105:30 Their land abounded with frogs, Even in the chambers of their kings.

 

Revelation 16:

13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

14 For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
