We hope this becomes a dependency. Strange thing for a therapist to say. But we are dependent on God for life and peace and joy. Spending time with Him every day (imagining these vignettes) will enhance your life and growth as nothing else can.

 

Misinformation about God is rampant out there today. This is good stuff--agreeing with the best interpretation you can put on Scripture.

 

  Below, Love's Playbook, Arla's new series, is the first interpretive version of the Bible -- it's God's love story like you've never read it--written to keep you reading! (Images are Amazon linked )

 

# 90 Being Real

By Arla, Sep 2 2019 01:00AM

Pretending to be God's is worthless. Unless you love truth, it becomes a curse, twisting and strangling love, and making you judgmental.


Jesus shows how far God's principles reach: If you indulge pornography, you violate women and yourself--you will soon be addicted. If you hold on to hate and anger, you are starting down the path of murder. There is righteous anger at seeing innocents hurt or oppressed.


But feeling free to "go off" over any slight, opens the mind to Satan's way. Retaliation hurts us--programming us into hurtful people. Even agreeing with the thoughts demons suggest (negative ones you think are your own) allows them to take control.


Jesus pushes it further. If you come to God and remember someone has something against you, go and do what you can to restore harmony. Then let go.


Those who walk with God are surrounded with the atmosphere of heaven. Jesus knows this because he is. It's a choice. He shows that the source of joy is God's mind and heart! "He enjoys being kind even to the unthankful and the evil." The people are stunned.


"Don't be anxious for tomorrow," says Jesus. "You have a loving Father, believe His love, rest in His care." We are never absent from his mind, and He loves to give us good things--everything we need, one day at a time. Just as sunlight reveals the color in the world, so God's presence reveals the beauty in us.


"Everyone who hears my words and does them," ends Jesus, "is a wise man...building on a strong foundation."


Matthew 5:27-7:29
