This cannot be all there is to Life The first 34 years of my life was without a god of any sort. I had no idea that there even was a god, why was it that I went so long with no concern to ask for help? Here I am once again waking up on the cold hard concrete floor of my county jail, with one eye open I see where I had written my name on the wall. I closed my eyes hard and opened the other eye, to see a pamphlet that said seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things will be added unto you. I lived by sight all these years but never seen these words before now. I was released from jail, O R out, I was free so I thought, but I could not escape the words I read with the other eye open. I just realized that I was living in two different dimensions, those words were in in my head playing in a nonstop loop. Nothing was working to at least pause this grasp I was in. What was I to do? Sleep was my only relief, but eventually, everyone has to wake up right. It was time for me to put this God and his kingdom to the test, what do I know about god, absolutely nothing. So I start walking in no particular direction, without money, food or a change of clothes. My reasoning was that if there were this god and kingdom he would provide all that I need, sure enough, a ride was provided, I was 250 miles north of where I started walking, dropped off at front door of shelter just in time to be served a hot meal, worship service hot shower change of clothes and a bed to rest, as I laid there I noticed the loop had stopped finally, I was thankful. to be continued. Continued on 02/16/2018 1:11 am central time. In the morning only a quick thought of, seek ye first the Kingdom of God. I was once again walking in a direction without a map, of where I should be heading, only the prompt of intuition. As I walked I began to realize, that I was being cared for with provisions, and clothing, but I was also holding onto luck and coincidence, not yet sure of this being part of God’s existence. I am now heading south toward the Gulf. I stood on the on-ramp and my ride showed up. A salesman that took me to Interstate 10, we talked about jobs, but God never entered the conversations as we traveled. We departed at Lake Charles, that was an eight-hour ride that ended at another shelter, he thanked me for the company and drove away. At the shelter, I showered. changed in to clean clothes, ate some food and church that had a hellfire and brimstone depiction. Before lights out, I wondered what kind of God would include hellfire and brimstone in His Kingdom? At breakfast, a person sat across from me and began a conversation, you know questions like where are you from and which direction are you headed. I was hesitant in telling him that I was seeking King Dome of GOD. By the look on his face, he was not sure if I was joking or not, with a sober expression he introduced himself and told me he was headed east. Just be for he left the table he handed me a paper, I stashed it in my shirt pocket without looking.
When our prayers don’t get answered we start to question a lot of things. But the story of the Canaanite woman from the New Testament teaches us that there is only one thing that God expects from us.
When I struggle with my faith, and it seems like my prayers aren’t being answered, I often start to wonder what is causing the problem. Could it be that I’m not good enough? Should I have spent more time reading my Bible? Going to church? On my knees? But when I look at the story of the Canaanite woman in Matthew 15:21-28 I see that there is only one answer.
When we read the story we see that she came to Jesus and cried out, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me! My daughter is suffering terribly from demon-possession.” (Matthew 15:22) But Jesus completely ignored her. It seemed that no matter what happened, no matter what Jesus did, she was determined to see her daughter healed.
It finally got to the point that the disciples begged Jesus to send her away. Jesus finally said to her that He had been sent to the lost sheep of Israel, and that, “It is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to their dogs.” (Matthew 15:26)
If you think about it, that’s a pretty rude thing to say, and it is definitely not politically correct. Had Jesus done this in our day and age the news media would have had a field day. I can see the headline now: Jewish Rabbi Calls Women Dogs!But nothing that Jesus said was going to stop her. She looked at Jesus and replied, “Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.” When Jesus answered her, He said something that He only says twice in the Gospels; he told her that her faith was great.

Miracles are all around us in daily life, if you choose to seek them out. However, in order to find them you have to look first at what it is that you are doing every moment of every day, all the time: the manifestation process.
Are miracles the norm in your life? If not, let’s look at that for a moment.
We have to look first at what it is that we are doing every moment of every day, all the time: we are manifesting.
That’s right. We are creating our world all around us, all the time. You may think this is crazy talk, but just read up on some of the quantum physicist’s writings the last twenty years and you’ll discover that there is a ton of evidence that says that with our consciousness, our minds, and the power we have within us, we bring what is floating around in the Universe as potential, and focus it into becoming reality each moment.
If you haven’t seen the move, “What the BLEEP Do We Know?” yet, well, you’re missing out on the greatest power imaginable — the power to create that you have, right now.
Even if you don’t believe this idea, you have to at least admit that we are creating our lives through our reactions and responses to what shows up in our lives. If we can start with that premise, than we can go somewhere together today.
So what are miracles, and why aren’t you seeing more of them each day?The best definition I can come up with for the word “miracle” comes from the dictionary: A person, thing or event that inspires admiring awe. Continue reading
